Danielle Foster bags








    Early January I finally managed to book in a visit I had been planning for months; I took myself down to east London to visit the incredibly talented handbag designer Danielle Foster.  I remember coming across her designs every now and then but when I glanced through her fall look book, page after page filled with her signature style beautifully heavy leather bags, I simply went yes yes yes. I did not just want a bag, I wanted to see how these beauties got made, know everything about them and of course take the time to meet the designer herself.

    And so I did, the model/designer was just as humble to meet me as I was to meet her, when I spent an hour or so sipping mint tea in her little studio. I placed two orders, one of them is being made in pic one, because if you have an opportunity to own a human hair tote - you really should.

    Thank you Danielle for having me over, the collection is now online as a newcomer at Bengt, make sure to check the collection out here.

We are nominated!



    I received great news during the week that 5 inch and up has been nominated for a Style Blogger award by Company magazine! I have to admit I am a bit excited because during my two years of blogging I've never been nominated for anything blog-related. Not only am I shortlisted for the 'Best What I'm Wearing Today Blog' but for the 'Overall Best Blog' as well!

    The news about the nomination came around the same time as I heard about Company magazines re-launch. The clutch sized cutie includes a fantastic selection of the best 'what-to-wear-now' pieces and it was quite fun seeing many familiar blogger faces throughout the pages. A special shout-out for reader Katie, featured in the horoscopes, who said she turns to 5 inch and up for style advice!

    So what do you think, should we try to challenge all those big blogs I'm up against? I guess this is the part where I humbly ask you to vote for 5 inch and up, if you think I deserve your votes. Only takes a minute and you can participate in winning £250 New Look vouchers by adding your email in the end.


    voting time is until 11th of Feb, followed by a awards ceremony in March, whereafter the winners will be featured in the April issue of Company magazine.

    Thank you all xxx

    I'm back, it's been a while! I finally managed to hand in my project and the feeling of relief and freedom is hitting me right about now... I should probably be kicking back with a puzzle or something as mind-numbing to tone down the stress levels, but instead I just landed in Turkey! I was planning somewhat of a holiday to company my boyfriend who is playing a golf tournament, but I managed to book a lookbook shoot and a big feature post for the week of my stay, to not give myself too much free time. But so many posts to catch up on to apologize for my absence one outfit at the time...

    A few weeks ago I wore one of my amazing finds from Thailand, a stingray bag! gives a whole new dimension to this 'under the sea' trend designer have been pushing, right?

    No plans to stop blogging or anything else that dramatic, just trying to get through a project that's sucking the life out of me to put it lightly. Deadline by the end of the week so I'll be right back.

    take care and thanks for keeping me positive with your kind tweets and messages!

    Stuck between 4 walls trying to finish a big project is leaving no time for some daily photos... but I had these that my mother helped me out with, taken just after Christmas in Finland. I'm wearing one of my best Christmas gifts, that my sister gave in to getting me. This is the piece that first made me fall in love with Finnish designer, Heikki Salonen who you might remember is now head designer of Diesel. My mother thinks it looks medieval... but the ripped, painted cotton is without a doubt the feature I like best about this piece. Balances perfectly those perfectly polished Burberry brogues.

Luxury?


    I'm going to go ahead and state the obvious by saying that I absolutely love fashion... but I love things that make fun of fashion a tiny bit more. Like my new paper Birkin right here. Don't get me wrong, walking through the made-up, fake paradise that is Thailand, the knock-off bag culture gets really tiring, really fast. Exhausting almost, especially for someone like me that indulges on the satisfaction felt when I hand over my credit card to pay for something that is new, exciting and just outside my price range. Well you've all seen the episode when Carrie attempts to buy a knock-off bag on a side alley in LA.

    This bag is by a newly discovered, fantastic Thai brand called Wonder Anatomie. And although the paper Birkin is a direct Herm├Ęs copy, I see this more like an ironic tribute to the designer tote that make girls like me think investing 3000+ on a bag is money well spent. My new tote cost me about 100 pounds which surely most of you still think is way too much for a paper bag. I just could not resist the thought of how much confusion, laughs and double takes this one will end up causing.

    I still have a few Thailand post planned, not too much going on in my life here in London at the moment. There was not a day where the temperature would have dropped under 30 degrees, but I insisted on wearing my new Nicholas Kirkwood boots I won in a sample sale just before Christmas. From the hundreds of pairs I was clinging on to I allowed myself only one pair, and these where the ones that felt right for the moment. I would much rather wear them with something more city-like here in London, but they deserved a more proper introduction than to just to be photographed on my desk. Super tricky to get on, semi uncomfortable on and impossible to get off. But ah they look PERFECT.
