Latest project - Growing my hair out.



I've had short hair for the past 7 years. I've tried to grow it past the "really awkward point" several times, and failed. Then I saw Eurovision and the oh so sweet Russian singer Polina Gagarina with her glamorous 50's bob, and decided that enough was enough - this time I'm going to endure the painstaking saving process. End result should be very curly aswell, since I have lot's of curls which have been bleached for so many years they seem to spend some time finding back to their original selves. Also, my carrot is that I'll dye it coral-pink when I get there, and then I can resume my usual hair-color-changing nature.

Tips for concealing that your growing your hair out:During the last few months I've learned a thing or two about how ugly your hair can get when growing it out! A few tips I've assembled:


1. Dye back to original color

Looks way more natural and not so tough to keep. I dyed mine back to brunette.

2. Braid, braid, braid!
If you use hair clips and braid everything you can get a hold of no one can see your out of proportion hairdo.


3. Scarves and big headpieces
Clever way to divert attention - no one will pay attention to your hair.

Anyone saving for long hair out there? Feel free to share your tips!

New Vintage 90's Levis 501 shorts




Wearing: Vintage top// Vintage Levis 501 shorts// Armani Sunglasses

Finally a few days of hot weather - I can put my new Levis 501 shorts to use! Me and my boyfriend went for a swim and this outfit was super comfy to spend a lazy day near the sea in. Now the weather is back to rain and 12C, but I'm hoping for summer soon, especially since I got my brand new scooter yesterday! Stay tuned for pics!

On Instagram?


Hi guys,

I'm so sorry that I haven't been posting for some time now, I've been sick and had a ton of sudden new challenges to take care of. Anyway, now I'm back, and whilst I conjure up new locations, outfits and images I post regularly to Instagram approx 4 times a week. Follow me @despitecolor for a splash of color and inspiration - and I'll see you soon!

70's vintage jumpsuit


70's vintage jumpsuit from Etsy// Secondlove vintage angora sweater// Cavalli e nastri hat

For once I've actually managed to have my summer wardrobe ready for summer. Usually (since I'm a winter style layer person) I wait until the last moment, and then I dig out some old pieces from the closet. It doesn't feel quite right though, because it's tricky to mantain ones style identity with random tops and shorts - I prefer dresses and jumpsuit with something extra. It can't just be plain. Then I feel like I'm not quite me. How is your summer wardrobe coming along?

Cherry blossoms



Wearing Vintage Etsy jumper & jeans// Grenson Emma Brogues

The cherry blossoming is upon us in Bergen, and wow - it's so beautiful. Especially this place, in the tree where I'm sitting. It's standing all alone in a closed courtyard, and you'll only find it if you know where (or stumble upon it). Can you guess where it's at?

Out and about browsing apartments with my boyfriend - I think it's about time to get our own place where I can decorate and paint like a madwoman. Also, I'd like to dedicate more space for my wardrobe, the clothes are like my babies after all!

Combining blue and orange

 HM blue suede jacket// Simone Rocha leather brogues

I came across these stockings in Oslo a while ago, and I really like how they match my blue jacket. The tangerine shade of orange is wonderful. I'm also trying to soften up my semi-new Simone Rocha brogues, they are really narrow and painful to wear - so I hope they'll be worn in soon. It's saturday and I'm enjoying the sunshine, how will you spend your day off?

Roksanda Ilincic Resort 2015


I'm in love with Roksanda Ilincic's resort collection for SS15. She's a genious, the way she uses space and colors intrigues me every time, and I'll easily name her one of my favourite designers.
