Ladies and gentlemen, this is post number 100 to be published on this blog. I celebrated with some Chanel nailpolish and a newly shredded tank dress.

I got a bottle of Vendetta yesterday, even though it kind of seemed like a waste of money, since I already have some cheapo purple nailpolish. But ohh, one application, and I realised just how WORTH IT it was. It’s like, a really dark purple shade, creamy and with just a little deep shimmer. Kind of like Blue Satin just.. in purple! I think I’ll stock up on like ten bottles of it, and never ever wear any other shade. I don’t care that it’s not exactly sommery, we don’t have to be all pastels and nudes just because it’s not winter anymore, when we still have to treat our inner rock chic, right?

For those who care, I’m wearing purple H&M undies. To match the nailpolish.

I finally got to do some shredding, like, a year too late, and I realise it’s highly addictive. I tried to make the panels of shredded and unshredded material kind of even, but as you can see it didn’t work so well. I’m really surprized that no high street store has ripped this look off (no pun intended) yet. Hmm..

PS: Don’t worry, I’m not going to wear this with just underwear. At least not yet..

  2. Heya, just noticed that you are studying in Göttingen. I’m going there this summer, you know any cool stores there, like hidden vintage pearls or something? Or just some tips on what to do there?
    btw, I like your blog, and your personal style is very unique. And your haircut is awesome🙂

  5. KB: Ohh, the shredding is definitely worth it, haha, just pick a cheaper shirt so you won’t waste too much money if you mess it up.

    Regine: Takk, takk, det er faktisk en av de myke singlettene fra H&M til 69 kr, jeg kjøpte en i str 42 slik at den ble skikkelig baggy

  6. pangolin: Basically, when you’re in Göttingen, all of the shopping is concentrated around the old part of the city, so if you walk around there for a day, you’ll find everything you need.. Here’s the breakdown by the streets:
    Weende Strasse: It’s the main street, and there are tonns of cheap high street stores there, H&M, footlocker, Tally Wejll, New Yorker, you name it.. Around the historical city hall, there are some more expencive stores, Pretty Shoes (some amazing mid-range shoes and accessories, and the owner is really nice), Perlentaucher (Jewelery by Pilgrim and other Scandinavian brands) and another store whose name I can’t remember, but it is in a really beautiful building next to the university drugstore, they sell italian brands that aren’t too well known, but elegant and great quality.
    Now on Grone strasse, they mainly have some special food shops, and of the clothing, the best one is a store called Supernova, where they sell Doc Martens and other kinds of Punk gear, I suspect you can find items there that will slide right along the autumns trends, hehe. Again, there are some high street stores there, so your best bet would be to just walk up and down the street a couple of times, and look into the side streets to see if there is anything that interests you there.
    Judenstrasse: They have some amazing stores there, one is a store called Piepers, they mainly sell Scandinavian stuff like Odd Molly, Day Birger et Mikkelsen, and they also have the most amazing assortment of accessories. Another more high end boutique there is L’Art et la Mode, they carry for example Tod’s, but I’d say they’re aimed more at the female lawyers and professors in the town, if you know what I mean.
    Rote Strasse and a street parallel to it, which leads to Wilhelmsplatz are probably your best bets, they’re full with speciality shops, and there are two antique stores, however they’re pricey. There is also a milliner’s shop called Hutbusch (where I got my bowler), make sure to take a look there.
    For Vintage shops, there is one behind Albanikirche, but it isn’t any good in my opinion. A better one is, like, if you stand in front of the historical main building on Wilhelmsplatz and turn into one of the side streets, you’ll see a store labeled really simply “Second hand boutique”, they have some designer stuff (Sonia Rykiel and JPG), and some bargains.
    For eating, I can recommend Sambesi (an African restaurant) and Inti (South American), but quite frankly, there are cafes and eating places everywhere, so you won’t go hungry.
    There are also tonns of going out places, well, it’s a student town, right? You will probably see posters hanged out everywhere, announcing this or that party, but some bars I can recommend are Nautilus, Tangente, JT Keller and Savoy. Just ask a random young looking person where they are, lol. There are also student parties at the start of the semester, and those are pretty good.
    Another good place is Cafe Schröder, well, they’re kind of socialist-oriented, so you shouldn’t come wearing your designer stuff, but they play really good music, so just sit in a corner and pretend to read some pseudo-intelligent book, haha.
    Oh, and if you meet some fraternity guys, make sure they show you their house! Those are AMAZING villas from the 19th century, with all kinds of antique furniture and decorations on the walls.
    I hope this helped, and just ask again if there is anything else you will know. Are you going to study there or is it just a holiday?

  8. Aw, great tips! Sounds like a real nice place🙂
    I’m just going there for a month, I’m attending this science camp-ish thing. So i guess I’ll meet a lot of weird geeks there.. Im sorta geek myself so that wont really be a problem.. So the really-really cheap stores were located at the main street? (I’m on a tight budget😛 ) And any tips on going out places full of youngsters? Cause I’m only 18, so partying with 30-year olds is a little weird😛
    But awesome tips, I’ll stop by Hutbusch and get a bowler, it rocked!

  9. Do you know by any chance where this science camp will be located? I’m at the faculty of chemistry, so maybe they’ll have us helping out or something. And which profs will you have? If you have Mr.Stalke, you’re lucky, he’s amazing.
    Most of the places I’ve mentionned are for students, so the people there will be between 18 and twentyish. Alpen Max is usually full of younger people (16+) but it is pretty trashy.. They have cheap parties there, nevertheless, like, 50 cent for a drink parties..

  12. X-lab something, it’s like a lab for young people, in Justus-von-something-Weg in northern Göttingen.. We’ll be staying at the guesthouse of the university I think.. I’m going to have molecular biology, neurophysiology and anatomy, so no chemistry..
    And thanks again for good tips🙂

  14. Hek: takk, den er mye finere in real life og..

    pangolin: Ahh, I know exactly what you mean then, it is in the same area as the chemistry. The subjects you have chosen sound so fun, I want to be a neurologist, so neurophysiology sound really interesting. Just say hi if you see me around campus (believe me I.. stand out, lol)

    emma: thanks🙂
