If It’s Thursday, It Must Be Copenhagen

June 14, 2012

The Scandinavian Fashionista Road Show has come to an end, and I am enjoying a quiet evening before embarking on my journey home tomorrow.

The presentations were very well received, and I met some great people in both Stockholm and Copenhagen these past 2 days.

Here are a few of them:

 

The streets of Copenhagen were filled with activity tonight. Here are a few of the street performers I encountered:

Blowing giant bubbles

Street musician

Most rode bikes, but these folks commuted via Segue

The shops were closed, but the windows were open, and I managed to document a little of the local style. They have embraced the pastel trend for both men and women, and it’s looking great!

 

 

There is also a blue mood that is permeating style for home and fashion.

 

 

 

It’s been a great albeit hectic trip, and I head back Stateside early in the morning.

I’ll be back on-line and posting before you know it!

 

A Birdseye View of Things to Come

I am heading off to Scandinavia to be a presenter at a series of trend seminars. The first is in Gothenburg, Sweden, followed by Stockholm and Copenhagen.I hope to be posting from each city offering you a little insider’s view of Fall 2013 fashion and color trends, as well as a peek at the local culture and street style.

Stay tuned for updates from my trip and a little glimpse of things to come!

Unrecipe of the Week

January 28, 2012

Ahh, the glamorous life of a fashionista! I just returned from a week away from home, doing presentations in Scandinavia.  Sounds wonderful, until you realize that every night after work, we got on a train or a plane, skipped dinner and went to bed late, only to wake up and do it all over again. Lunch was served at 11:15, and tended to be a stand up affair.

After finishing my final presentation in Copenhagen, I opted for a short walk and a quiet seated lunch before heading to the airport. I am a little embarrassed to admit that where I ended up was Hard Rock Café!  The real surprise was the delicious salad I had there. It was a light and healthy blend of lettuce, fresh fruit and grilled chicken that they referred to as the “anti Cobb”.  Here is our take on this yummy salad:

Indigo Jones’ Anti Cobb Salad:

shredded lettuce

sliced Granny Smith apples

diced mango

sliced avocado

sliced strawberries

orange sections

dried cranberries

diced roasted chicken breast (optional)

Layer the fruit in rows over the shredded lettuce. Toss with balsamic vinaigrette and enjoy!!!

Balsamic Vinaigrette:
Whisk together 2 parts olive oil and 1 part balsamic vinegar. Add salt and pepper to taste.
