A Monday In Nørrebro









Prag





Mondo Kaos
On my last day in Copenhagen, I knew I wanted to visit a district called Nørrebro and hang out there. It's probably my favourite place to be within the city and, in my opinion, it has some of the best shops in Copenhagen, especially when I'm looking for vintage, secondhand and repro clothes. Where I live at the minute, I don't have the best pick of vintage or secondhand unless I travel for an hour or so to cities like Aarhus, where they have a better selection, but I always look forward to Copenhagen as I know I'll be able to find something fantastic and, if not, I'm able to scour through the clashing prints, patterns and fabrics taking inspiration and getting some style ideas.

My hair decided not to cooperate in the slightest this day, with a mixture of drizzle and the humid air turning it against me. I actually didn't notice how unruly it was until I got home that night to see myself with a halo of wispy curls, a look which I must say, I'm not overly fond of! I wore my black Zara midi skirt, which you may recognise as I wore it in green here. I loved the shape and versatility so much that when I saw this black one in Prague I knew I had to snap it up or I would regret it. I can't wait until the warmer weather, when I can just pop on a midi skirt without worrying about which jackets will ruin the silhouette! They also do this skirt in a burnt orange shade, but I can't seem to find that anywhere. They are amazing quality, so I might have to look more closely into that one! My bardot top is also from Zara, and again, I own it in two colour ways and love it to bits. It is SO COMFORTABLE and I am starting to wear them whenever possible, something which I might need to stop doing so as not to wear them out too fast. As always, I had my trusty Vivienne Westwood bag with me (I love you Viv), and I also had my new Olympus OM-D EM-10 around my neck ready for a day of photo taking. I absolutely love the look of my Olympus and I feel that it fits really well aesthetically, and I am also loving using it so far! From now on, it's what I should be using to take all of my blog photos, so I hope you like the style of them too. I still have loads to learn though, so if you have any photography tips, do tell me in the comments!

My first stop of the day was Prag, a vintage shop that is filled with absolutely everything you could want. Whether you're looking for an 80s does 50s prom dress, a suit jacket, a huge, fluffy jumper or petticoats in all the colours of the rainbow, they have it. Prag is also my favourite place to get seamed tights, as they are reasonably priced and are such good quality! I spent quite a long time in here; going through all the rails and gawping at a tomato red dress with gold buttons and shoulder pads before we moved on. (Prag also sells Barry M nail varnish and it's the only shop in Denmark I have seen that does, a top tip to any English expats in need of a home comfort in the form of cosmetics).
After a good wander around and visits to many charity shops (the Red Cross opposite Prag is secondhand GOLD), we headed over to Mondo Kaos, which is the most wonderful shop that sells vintage reproduction clothing. Again, vintage reproduction is something I struggle to find anywhere else in Denmark, so I always look forward to paying a visit just so I can look over all of the dresses with hearts in my eyes. Mondo Kaos basically offers a pick of brands from Trashy Diva and Collectif to What Katie Did and Miss L Fire, all fitted into one beautiful boutique. Out of all the shops in Copenhagen, this is my favourite by far and whenever I have been in, the staff have been absolutely lovely (and also seem to be constantly immaculately dressed and gorgeous). This is where I made my best purchase of the day in the form of a Luxulite Cherry Brooch, which I can't wait to show you in another post! I've looked at Luxulite pieces for so long without ever making a purchase and I'm so excited to finally have one pinned to my shirt!
After more exploring and a visit to Torvehallerne, a huge food hall filled with the most amazing stuff (which I got no pictures of, as I was too busy stuffing my face with a red velvet cupcake. Well, it was my birthday trip!), we headed back home, feeling very happy, with extra cake and a very tired dog in our arms. I had such a wonderful trip, so March ended on a high! I hope you're loving this month so far.

To finish up this post, I'll leave you with a list of my favourite vintage, secondhand and repro shops in Copenhagen, should you ever be in need of one :
Mondo Kaos
Prag

Atelier Decor

And make sure you look around the Latin Quarter of Copenhagen, there is a ton of secondhand shops and boutiques alongside cafes and bars.
