My little company Twisted Silver has taken me on quite a ride. Little did I know a few years ago that my love of making jewelry would become a full fledged business. Something small business owners all know came as quite a surprise to me…that “design” would be only a small fraction of what I would do.
Running a business requires so much more than creating a beloved product. Among other things, it requires a lot of marketing- which can take as much effort as I will put in to it. As is clear now Blogging is the direction many companies are putting their best efforts in to- and that is what I have been heavily focused on as of late. Connecting with style bloggers has become a new arena for us… and through this I have been introduced to so many incredible style blogs- each one with a voice of their own. So I have a list of favorites and I just HAVE to share!

It might not look like it from the photo, but what I am doing tonight is having a nice candle light dinner with my husband. This was just a short stop on the way to the grocery store where we got a little distracted by the digger.

I bought these shades in Berlin a few years ago. I love them but for some reason hardly wear them. The last few day´s runway show have been filled with shades of the sort and it reminded me of these. Today, as the sun was shining, I finally found an excuse to wipe the dust off them.

The broad shoulders are still there, but this time in a more minimalistic and futuristic way.
I love the futuristic shades, especially paired with more conservative garments like the cardigan.

Tomorrow I am going to try putting away these shoes for a while. I have at least ten times as many pumps and sandals as I have winter shoes, same goes with summer contra winter clothing, so I am bound to play a little more on mixing and matching than the garments themselves. This dress though is one of my thrift finds from this weekend. I was surprised by the design of it, the huge folds are actually pockets, and it has to be some sort of 80´s thing cause the label says “Made in West Germany”.

I might just as well move into these shoes. When I got them I wasn´t sure whether I´d really wear them, but got them since they were cheap and kept the receipt in case I´d return them. I have worn them every day since then.
I´m spending the evening eating risotto and drinking Champagne while working on DIY projects. I am setting the table with beads, glue, feathers, fabric and everything else I can find. Hopefully something nice will come out of it.
