Bruuns Bazaar, by Malene Birger and Isabel Marant - My day in Copenhagen

Last wednesday I travelled to Copenhagen for work and although I hardly had any free time I did manage to spend 20 minutes in Illum, for a concentrated danish designers shopping experience. I prepared my trip well, I carefully browsed the websites of Bruuns Bazaar (a brand that I discovered back in 2008 on my first time to Copenhagen and which I have spotted lately on Caroline) and By Malene Birger and selected my favorites pieces.


From left: chunky knit sweater (bruuns bazaar), stich detail blouse (bruuns bazaar), sweater
(bruuns bazaar), black blazer (by malene birger), cable knit sweater (by malene birger),
military coat (by malene birger), tiger sweater (by malene birger), sequined leggings (by malene birger)

Unfortunately I didn't manage to find any of these and everything that I tried on didn't look right.

In the end I left Illum empty handed but I'm glad I did because on a moment of crazyness and suffering from the syndrome of "never leave a store without buying something" I almost bought Isabel Marant's Memphis boots. Crazyness because although beautiful they are waaaaaaaaaay overpriced, and I refuse to go along with Isabel Marant crazy prices rise...




Have a great weekend, lovelies !!

  2. Oh Sue don't say that... I have been trying to convince myself that I did the right thing... I m not going back anytime soon, it is probably not very likely that I see the Memphis boots again... Damn, I should have bought them ;) xx

  3. Elles sont beeeeelles! Mais je les trouve décidément trop chères pour l'utilisation que je pourrais en avoir. Je pense que il faut les essayer et vite les payer sans se poser de question pour passer à l'acte.
    Mais j'ai lu dans un mag' qu'elles n'étaient vraiment pas confortable. Cmt les trouves-tu, toi?

Je dois tjs etre 100% sûre de tout ce que j achete !! xx

  7. I have to agree with Sue. The boots really look gorgeous but in saying that I do agree with your thoughts on IM pushing the prices too high. It's the reason I haven't bought the boots as well. I want them so much but I have drawn the line because of the price. I'm hoping that a pair in my size will make it to sale. One can hope right?!

  8. lol.. I loved the "never leave a store without buying something" syndrome. I think I suffer from the same! :)
    The boots are gorgeous really... but, I agree, they are very expensive.
    Copenhagen has been in my list of European cities to visit for ages (decades maybe). Is it worth it for a weekend trip?
