Knit Flat Top/Urban
Since NYCFW was not in the cards for me this season, I just had to make the best out of it. Did I have any other choice? No. Other then stalking every New Yorkers instagram feed and updating style.com every hour, I was STUCK! This wannabe globetrotter fashionista was frozen in Bergen once more!
This cold hard fact resulted in some whining, but also a weekend around town with the BF and fam, hanging out at all my favorite places. I even got some shopping done at Bolia, so finally my apartment project is moving forward. It has now been a couple months of trying things out, throwing away, freeking out and digging up old treasures again, then repeat and repeat again.
At 23, I cant even tell you how much having a real H.O.M.E means to me. This kinda safe place to recharge without worrying about what´s going to happen the next hours is something I never had, and you cant really miss something you never had. But even though this buy was a impulse thing, it was the best impulse thing that could ever happen to me. I was like; Yey this hundred year old apartment is mine, all m-i-n-e! I`ve always considered myself a free spirit, but now I am more like a free spirit without the mental problems haha. It has grounded me so much. I have been lucky with my work and living, but there`s kids all around who dont have rich parents to turn to in this kind off situation. That compared with the bad housing Politics for the young makes it close to impossible for the ones who needs it the most to find a place to shack up in in their 20`s. To me it seems like our government has completely failed in helping out younger buyers. Also, renting apartments is now so expensive, that there will almost never be money left to save up after rent is payd. Without thinking about it, I guess that has always stressed me out before, like, in the back of my mind. I mean, If you have already had a rocky start on life, finding the capital for house shopping is sort off like trying to hit the lotto. Never stopping, never catching a break, when nothing you do ever seems good enough. Maybe you get this, maybe you dont. If you do, my words kinda come short. I mean, honestly, it´s shitt to always be struggling, but when you whooooop the situation to your favor it`s going to be like a house party every fucking day.
When other people sit around in their apartments, I wake up every morning and want to like.. Make out with mine!!
So I am so happy it`s all coming together, chair by chair and candle by candle. After this whole experience, I just want this to be possible for everyone! I want the government to take responcebility of this ridic situation, where we live in a imaginary fairytale where everyone is just handed apartments by their parents. World dont work that way! Yey to owning your home, yey to more building projects and more control over the rental market.
Anyways, enough with the bla bla and the non fashion commitment, I cant wait to show you angels a HUGE home&decor post. Are you up for it?
((PS: Check in tomorrow for this outfit post))
