Copenhagen Fashion Fair outfit, dinner oufit, pearls!

Yesterday I  attended the annual Jewellery Fair which is now part of Copenhagen Fashion Fair. Sadly it was a bit disappointing! There wasn't a lot of vendors in the jewellery part, and they weren't placed together, so there was a lot of walking, and time wasted trying to find certain vendors. As I expected to be met by a lot of fashionable people that was disappointing too since most of the visitors were goldsmiths and their shop assistants. Here's how I looked:


Fashion- and Jewellery Fair outfit







































Seeing these photos I realize that I have to shorten the longer necklace, and maybe get a third? I didn't wear the blue suede shoes all the time - I brought my sensible and comfortable flat sandals to wear after a couple of hours.



Striped Kaliko dress and blue Adax bag


























The blue bangle is new, and perfect with this outfit!



Blue and silver bangles from Evans


























Pearls are my weakness! As there was this very good offer that I couldn't refuse and therefore ended up with this bunch!




Freshwater pearls, Pyrite and 5 Tahitian pearls


















When it comes to South Sea pearls and Tahitian pearls I go bananas! The five Tahitian pearls in this photo were extremely cheap - in a C/D quality, nice colour and luster but quite flawed.  They were very cheap, leaving me money for these three:




Tahitian pearls, 9-11 mm

















The quality is much better on these three, around B with only a few flaws. The colour is gorgeous and the luster fine as you can see. I couldn't wait to wear these so I spent the afternoon making myself a new necklace with black spinel and the new pearls!

New necklace on old neck

















During the week there was also a dinner with good friends, and I ended up wearing my favorite maxi. It's just so relaxing, and hides the consequences of the delicious meal!


Favorite maxi with new pink cardigan






































Of course I wore the red lipstick since I got so much positive feed back here on the blog!



Red lips go well with pink, orange and burgundy

























And there's another new ring from Evans....




All I need now is turquoise nail polish!




















I hope you all have a great weekend with lots of sunshine and fun activities!

  1. I don't have a problem with the depth of the V neckline on you, but before you go altering it, you might try a black camisole instead of the white. That may fix the balance for you.

  2. Fantastic eye-catching outfit, the striped dress, pearls and pops of blue. Your necklace project turned out beautifully. And that red lipstick, I'm really liking it.

  3. Hej Tine
    Jeg håber det er ok jeg skrive på dansk, det er lidt nemmere for mig. Tak fordi du besøgte min blog og for din søde kommentar. Du har selv en fin imødekommende, spændende og populær blog.

    Jeg elsker striber. Pink og orange sat sammen er altid lidt Kenzoagtig. Og det ser godt ud til dig. Du behøver ikke læbestift, men det klæder dig og som Charlotte Torpgård fra Ilove Beaty skrive i sin bog: ”skønhed komme indefra men lidt læbestift skader jo ikke”. Det giver ansigtet karakter når man skal fotograferes (det trick bruger jeg selv :). Dine smykker er spændende, jeg få lyst til at tage alle perlekæderne på, på en gang. Jeg vil også cykle forbi din blog.

    1. Tusinde tak Anne-Marie! Du må gerne skrive på dansk! Jeg bruger faktisk ofte læbestift som et humørbarometer. Nogle gange har man brug for noget diskret, andre gange noget larmende. Selvom jeg har brugt læbestift i årevis har jeg dog ikke brugt den højrøde til andet end fest - før for nylig. Men efter jeg fik bogen "Advanced Style" har jeg lyst til at bruge den hver dag og til hverdag!

  6. The pearl necklace you whipped up is so lovely! I love the dark lustre of Tahitian pearls. Your striped dress and maxi dress get my thumbs up, and bonus on the bright red pouty mouth! xo. -Bella Q

    1. Thank very much Bella! It only took me a few hours to make the necklace - these pearls don't need much, gorgeous as they are on their own. I know you have a striped dress too, only far more glamorous than mine!

  7. Great colorful outfits, so happy and pretty!! I love the first one and wouldn't change a thing. I like the two necklaces together, including the length. The second outfit is right up my alley, so to speak. I would wear that dress too!! The pearls are so beautiful! You look amazing in them, too.

    1. Thank you so much Jean! The maxi dress really is a favorite - it's so incredibly comfortable, so I guess you'll see it remixed very often!

    1. Thank you Megan! I'm quite surprised to see that I can actually wear stripes.

  9. You look great in the striped dress this time too and don't they say that perls is a girls best friend? I suppose that goes for diamonds too?! ;-)

  10. Ohh... I forgot to say that I am sad that the fair was not what you expected!

    1. Thank you very much Anna! Diamonds and pearls go so well together, I'll have them both, please! Well, it'll be some time before I've saved up enough money to buy diamonds. I bet a few precious rocks would go nicely with the stripes, don't you think?

    2. Definitely, I can't understand that you even consider wearing the dress without diamonds. ;-) Or why don't you call some of the Danish Olympic champions and ask if you could borrow one of the medals, your athletes won so many that they definitely should be able to share!

      Delete
    3. :-) You're so right! Come to think of it - there should be enough medals to let you borrow some too! Although I would prefer diamonds of course!

  11. Your sense of color is a delight. The blue with stripes and the pink with orange. Your outfits leap off the screen and just made my Tuesday morning!

  12. Thank you very much Judith! I feel that I'm finally getting where I was aiming at for years, in terms of colour.
