today’s look


  • Zara pants
  • H&M button up shirt
  • Bomber Jacket from Fatamarkaðurinn
  • Shoes from Kolaportið. They’re not Timberlands, they are Timperlands, with a P.
  • Glasses from Kolaportið
  • Michael Kors underwear because you know I had to wear one designer. I don’t know where I got them, they just magically appeared one day in my home.

style q&a

Describe your style in 5 words: Berlin queer style, glitter fetish. But really, I am just a punk. I take things and destroy them.

Favourite stores in Reykjavík: Fatamarkaðurinn definitely, and Zara. I don’t really find much variety in Iceland. There’s only a few limited items that are often really expensive and everyone is wearing them. I normally try to find things at discount prices. I like things that are earth coloured or grey toned. It’s a very Icelandic look.

Favourite piece: A leather bomber jacket I bought in 2014 in Gyllti Kötturinn. I only wear it on really special occasions but it’s so me. It’s big and short so it shows off my bum.

Least Favourite Trend: I have never understood ripped jeans, like ones that are already ripped in the store. Why? Also white pants. I don’t like them. I can’t wear white, not after Labour Day especially.

But I judge makeup trends more. I don’t like that hardcore Instagram makeup, the one with the inspired Arabic eyes, Kylie Jenner lips, and excessive Kim Kardashian skin. Your eyebrows don’t need to tell a story. Isn’t it demanding to walk around with the Mona Lisa on your face everyday?

Lusting After: I am in love with those long green jackets from 66° North. I am also still looking for the perfect hoodie, but you never buy those, they just come to you. At the moment, I also want high black boots and a lot of harnesses.
