where have I been + BIG NEWS



I feel slightly ashamed, every single time I leave the blog for an extended period of time. I keep saying to myself: "I'll post something tomorrow. Or this weekend. Or next!". And still the silence continues. This time around it got to the point where I was slightly ashamed to open the link for the blog, saved in my browsers bookmarks. The silence was overwhelming.

You probably think that I'm going to be pulling the plug now - say that 3 years was enough, and I'm out. But it's actually the opposite. The blog, Stains, is going to be re-done and re-born!

I'm going the spend the last days of this year planning the future of Stains. I'll be getting my own website, since I'm tired of blogger, and I'll go back to the roots - TRAVEL, FASHION, JEWELLERY, EVERYDAY. It'll be amazing, and I can't wait to get started with a fresh layout, and a blank canvas to work with. I hope you all will be there when Stains is back on track in 2016.

favorites from orelia


1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6
Orelia on ASOS (here)

Et af mine absolut yndlings mærker, når det kommer til billige high-street smykker, er Orelia (se mine fine, nye hoops fra mærket her). Selve stilen er meget blandet fra smykke til smykke - fra boheme festival vibes til klassiske, simple designs.

Jeg har samlet nogle af mine yndlings smykker fra mærket i en collage ovenfor - som set har jeg en klar hang til det minimalistiske, og jeg ejer faktisk både 2, 5 og en tidligere version af 3.  Har I nogle favoritter?

One of my favorite brands, when it comes to cheap high-street jewellery, is Orelia (see my new hoops, from the same brand, in action here). The style itself is quite mixed; from boheme vibes to classic, minimalistic pieces.

I've picked out a few pieces in the collage above - I clearly favour the minimalistic designs, and I actually own both 2 and 5, and also an earlier edition of 3. Do you have any favorites?

another alexander wang baby


BAG Alexander Wang 

Min Alexander Wang samling er i den grad i voksealderen - mine smukke Gabi støvler og min dejlige Marion taske er blevet søskende til denne taske, og er den ikke bare herlig? Mine andre tasker er meget klassiske i deres design, hvilket jeg synes er enormt smukt og praktisk, men jeg manglede en lidt sjovere én til samlingen. En taske, der var atypisk og som kunne komplimentere min garderobe... Og denne sneakers-inspirerede taske med vilde sports-vibes må siges at passe storslået ind i den kategori.

Til trods for at den er så speciel, knuselsker jeg den, og at jeg fik den med 70 % rabat gør kun situationen bedre. Hurra for udsalgssæson!

My Alexander Wang collection has hit a growth spurt, and Gabi and Marion have become siblings to my latest addition; a brand new shoulder bag in the most amazing sports-luxe, sneakers inspired design. All of my bags and purses are very classic in their look, so I felt like I needed to add a little fun to my assortment of handbags - and this one definitely does the trick.

It's a very atypical design, but I absolutely love it. And the fact that I got it at 70 % off just makes it even better. Hurray for sales season!
