Sophie Lancaster


Today it's Sophie Lancaster's birthday. The Murder of Sophie Lancaster was a murder case in the United Kingdom in 2007. The victim was brutally attacked along with her boyfriend, Robert Maltby, while walking through Stubbylee Park in Bacup, Rossendale in Lancashire. As a result of her severe head injuries she went into a coma, never regained consciousness, and later died. The police said the attack may have been provoked by the couple wearing gothic fashion and being members of the goth subculture.

While returning home, Lancaster and Maltby were subjected to a "vicious mob attack" from "a large group of people" between 01:10 hours and 01:20 hours on Saturday, 11 August 2007, at the skate park area of Stubbylee Park, Bacup. The couple were walking home and came across a group of teenagers at the entrance to the park. The group followed them, but there was no trouble until some of them suddenly assaulted Robert Maltby without provocation. When he was knocked unconscious the gang attacked Sophie Lancaster, who was trying to protect him by cradling him in her arms. A 15-year-old witness told police: "They were running over and just kicking her in the head and jumping up and down on her head." One distraught witness used a mobile to call for emergency services saying: "We need... we need an ambulance at Bacup Park, this mosher has just been banged because he’s a mosher." Witnesses revealed that afterwards: "The killers celebrated their attack on the goths — or "moshers" - by telling friends afterwards that they had, "done summat [something] good," and claiming: "There's two moshers nearly dead up Bacup park — you wanna see them — they're a right mess." The injured couple were assisted by some of the teenagers who called emergency services, and then stayed with the couple and tried to tend their wounds. At the trial they were commended by the judge.

Police said soon afterwards it was, "a sustained attack during the course of which the pair received serious head injuries and their faces were so swollen we could not ascertain which one was female and which one was male." Both were hospitalised as a result of the attack, initially at Rochdale Infirmary. Maltby's injuries left him in a coma with bleeding on the brain, but he gradually recovered over the next two weeks. Lancaster, in a deep coma, was moved to Fairfield Hospital in Bury, then to the Neurology unit at Hope Hospital in Salford. It became clear to hospital staff she would not recover from her injuries, and on 24 August 2007 her family agreed to switch off life support and she died. (From Wikipedia).

Take your time and watch the video 'Dark Angel' on the website of The Sophie Lancaster Foundation http://www.sophielancasterfoundation.com/. In tribute to Sophie, Illamasqua has commissioned ‘Dark Angel’ – a short film by award-winning French director, Fursy Teyssier. that’s a haunting rendition of Sophie’s story, featuring the music of iconic British band, Portishead.The aim of the film is to raise awareness of The Sophie Lancaster Foundation and generate £500,000 to help educate young people about tolerance. Since Sophie’s death, the Foundation has been working with behavioural experts Huthwaite International, to put together an interactive youth workshop that does just that.

Oh!Nena

Photo courtesy Oh!Nena
As I told you before, the fashionable head bands don't really suit me. I think the shape of my head turns into some weird pear shape or something. Anyway, that doesn't stop me from admiring other people wearing them or the many designs there is out there. A fellow blogger, Travinia, posted pictures of Oh!Nena's creative head bands/head gear, and I thought I wanted to share them with you too.
The team behind Oh!Nena is thë three Venezuelan girls Daniela Ordonez, andrea Moreno and Valentina Alvarado. Every piece is named after a girl. The trio say they were inspired to give the pieces a girl's name after listening to the group Boom Boom Clan.
What makes each of the pieces to die for is the extravagant quality of the designs. Oh!Nena accessories are romantic and eye-catching and definitely a perfect way to bring any outfit to the next level. Unfortunately Oh!Nena is only available in Venezuela :-(

Winter






Picture 1-2: Blazer from InWear, skirt from H&M, leggings from kvickly, ballerinas from Vila, bangles from Italy, top with fringes from some russian shop at Allenby in Israel, hat from Egypt, purse from Burberry and the silver heart medallion used to be my mom's.

Picture 3: It's time to get cosy. I don't know the name of the flowers or whatever they are. But they were almost 1m before I cut them. They are lovely as simple decorations at the dining table. Another idea is to cut them so only the flower itself is left. Then put the "heads" in a clear ball or deep plate of water.

The September Issue

video
Anna Wintour, the legendary editor-in-chief of Vogue magazine for twenty years, is the most powerful and polarizing figure in fashion. Hidden behind her trademark bob and sunglasses, she has never allowed anyone to scrutinize the inner workings of her magazine. Until now. With unprecedented access, filmmaker R.J. Cutlers new film, takes the viewer inside a world they only think they know. Every August a record-breaking number of people cant wait to get their hands on the September issue of Vogue.
The 2007 issue was and remains the biggest ever, weighing over four pounds, selling thirteen million copies, and impacting the $300-billion global fashion industry more than any other single publication. He takes us behind the scenes at Fashion Week, to Europe, on shoots and re-shoots, and into closed-door staff meetings, bearing witness to an arduous, entertaining, and sometimes emotionally demanding process.

Rachel Zoe vs. Kim Kardashianaa

Sometimes even the most beautiful couture dress wont look any good if the person who is wearing it is too skinny. I think Rachel Zoe is one of the extreme cases; She has a great sense of style but nothing really looks great on her. I prefere a little junk in the trunk like Kim Kardashian :-)

More than burgers

I actually hate clowns! All of them. I don't think they are funny, they are annoying, especially those in the streets trying to capture the attention of people passing by. Ever since I saw the movie "It" I find them kind of scary too. At least McDonald's clown is doing something good, or the people behind him, by helping sick children all over the world through the Ronald McDonald House Charity. Children between the ages of 0-21, who are being treated at nearby hospitals and their families are eligible to stay at a local Ronald McDonald House. In 1994 the Ronald McDonald House was ranked as the 2nd most popular charity/non-profit in America of over 100 charities. At the moment the donations help 3.7 million children and their families every year.
Your cash at work:
Broken down into real-life costs, 83 cents of every dollar* is distributed to local Chapters who might then spend it on things like:
Average cost to host a family for one night = $85
Daily electricity bill for an average House for one day = $125

Daily gas bill to keep appliances like a kitchen stove working = $60
100 flu vaccinations = $60
5 flu vaccinations on a Ronald McDonald Care Mobile = $175
Saving families from eating in the hospital cafeteria = $25

*based on 2008 numbers.

Monday outfit

Obviously I didn't pull off a Freja Beha look, as I wrote about yesterday. While I was searching for clothes that would match hers I found a hairband and a flower and had some fun with that instead. I normally never wear the fashionable headband, cause it doesn't flatter me at all. Not everyone can pull it off. But clothes and accessories are about having fun and that's what I had today. Feeling like going to a carneval, I found my dazzling purse from Egypt to make it all the more fun. Guess the black in black-look will have to wait for tomorrow.
Wear I got it: hairband from Hummel, flower from H&M, jacket Chanel, shirt from Vero Moda, leather belt with metal from Zara (NEW), boots from H&M, panties from H&M, necklaces of shells from Turkey, silver necklace with black stones from a market in Tel Aviv and the purse is from Egypt.

Freja Beha Monday look


The Danish model Freja Beha Erichsen has an edgy look, a look that I could only dream of. I love her short messy hair, the simple long silver necklace, the beautiful jacket, skinny jeans and the cool leather bag- all in black, just as I like it. The picture is taken backstage at Alexander Wang ss10.

A scarf can make a change


The woman behind Designers Remix Collection, Charlotte Eskildsen, has designed a scarf for Red Cross. Buy buying the scarf, you automatically donate 100 kr., out of the 300 kr. it costs, to Red Cross. The scarf is available in purple, black and blue. Great idea for a christmas gift. For more Red Cross shopping http://drk.dk/roede+kors+butikken

Update

The last month or two I haven't been much on blogger due to vacations in Egypt and Israel. I've also used a great amount of time on fixing an application to the university. I hope to get thumps up from the uni to study a year abroad in Israel from 2010-2011. At the moment I'm running around as a maniac to find books, videos etc. to a 20-pages exam. Still not sure what I want to write about. I have untill next week to decide and find the necessary empiri. I'm going to visit the Jewish Museum in Copenhagen today. Hopefully I'll find some usefull things or at least some inspiration there. So stressed out! Hate exams!

I've decided to have a giveaway soon. But first I want to have more followers. Not sure how many... maybe 50. So if you want to sign up for a giveaway competition, become a follower of my blog. I'll announce the "price" asap. Think it's going to be a cool sparkling gold/bronze nailpolish- great for your christmas and new year outfit. And welcome to the two new followers! You are welcome to comment as much as like. I'm happy to get feedback and to discuss the things I like :-)

Cheers and enjoy life!

The winter is coming


It's getting colder and colder here in Denmark. Yesterday we even had some snow flakes falling down! But even though it's cold, and will be colder, I still dress as if I was somewhere warmer hhhh... At least my parents got me a long wool coat from InWear, that will keep me warm. Haven't owned a propper winterjacket/coat the last 5 years. About time, huh!
Excuse me for uploading more than one picture of the same outfit, but I didn't get the right shot and it was too cold to stand outside in this outfit for a longer periode of time. And yes I've noticed the skirt is messy, hope you are able to ignore it :-) On the pic: Ankle boots from H&M, knee high socks from H&M, panties from H&M, skirt from H&M, bag from H&M (oh yeah I love shopping here), dress used as top from InWear, blazer from InWear and tea warmer look alike-hat from Egypt.

Nelly's Delhi loves Rankin

I can't get enough of the works of photographer, publisher and film director, Rankin. He established his reputation when he launched Dazed & Confused with his business partner Jefferson Hack in 1991. Rankin’s stunning style and his incredible eye for beauty have gained him a reputation as one of the world’s leading photographers. Rankin is addressing issues from domestic violence to body image in both his personal work as well as charity and commercial projects. He made headlines again with his campaign for Dove showing women who differed from the usual stick-thin advertising stereotype. He has also shot prominent charity campaigns for Amnesty International, Everyman, Special Olympics, Oxfam, Teenage Cancer Trust, Refuge, The Teaching Awards, Women’s Aid, Women’s Vote, Breast Cancer Awareness and Youth Music.

Rankin kicked off 2009 by inviting people across the UK to participate in his most ambitious project to date - Rankin Live! A show of two halves, Rankin Live brought the museum-scale retrospective of the last 22 years in Rankin’s photographic life together with the portraits of 1,500 of today’s British public.

Christmas wishlist: A photo by Rankin.

Work that sailor shirt


           
The Breton stripe shirt (or the sailor shirt) originated in Brittany—a French province that occupies the peninsula between the English Channel and Bay of Biscay. The long-sleeved cotton garment usually has a boat neck and, traditionally, the stripes begin around the breastbone. Coco Chanel was the first designer to reinvent this shirt for women to wear. Today it's a must-have and it doesn't matter wether it's short, long, tight or loose. As long as you wear one, you're hot! Although this shirt is the perfect low-key option, remember it can also be dressed up with a skirt and a heel or tight knee-high boots for a sassy winter ensemble.

Girls' night out

Sometimes it doesn't matter where you are. It's all about who you are with. Sitting on plastic baskets in a typical kitchen of Copenhagen with chains of light, good music, asti, beers, non-fat/non-colour vodka and sparkling water with lime (just as the models want it) and friends is for me far better than going to a club- where I mostly end up getting disappointed anyway. One of the highlights this night was driving through Copenhagen on the back of K's bicycle. Illigal and dangerous, yes. But we sure felt young and free :-)
