style q&a

Favourite stores in Reykjavík: Spúútnik & Húrra Reykjavík

Overall Aesthetic: Romantic, Victorian, edgy, and streetwear all blended together.

Least Favourite Trend: I just saw these Nike sneakers with a thin heel. I thought it was so funny. I would never ever ever wear that.

Favourite Piece: A Versace denim set my boyfriend bought me for Christmas.

Lusting After: Acne studio sneakers, black, size 36. They have them in stock at the London store and I am going there in February so hopefully they still have them! I really want chunky sneakers like the Fenty ones.
