Dane of the Day: Cecilie

dane1Walking through Copenhagen for Fashion Week, we've been stopping the best-dressed of it's many inhabitants to see what goes on in the mind and style of these fashionable northern people.

Dolce & Gabbana rubber boots—I'm all about those for Fall.

Well I think we're actually all pretty stressed, but we also know how to unwind…we have this word "hygge"—which sort of translates to cozy…it's this whole state of mind…we love to be social, and sit at cafes, sip a coffee or a glass of white wine, and just enjoy life. That's probably the secret.
What's the one thing you can't be without on a daily basis?
Coffee!
