STYLE FILES // CELINE.
Meet Celine | Blogger + Editor at STYLEmag Norway | Bali
1. Please introduce yourself…
My name is Celine I. Aagaard – Fashion editor, stylist, blogger, scarf-designer and author from Norway. I’m Editor In chief at Norwegian fashion magazine STYLEmag. I also run the Award winning blog hippiehippiemilkshake.blogspot.com. I recently designed a scarf and just launched my 3rd book – a travel guide to London!
2. Where are you from? (heritage / place of residence)
I’m from Norway, in North Europe. I live in beautiful Oslo, and love Skandinavia, and our four seasons. Guess you can see The Skandinavian influence in my style! I’m also fortunate to travel a lot with my job – to Paris, London, Copenhagen, New York!
3. Describe your style…
I’m very black and white! Yin & Yang makes me feel in balance! I used to wear more colours when I was younger, but I’m more basic now! I like androgynous and monochrome dressing. I love leather pants And jackets, lace dresses, suit trousers, boxy tops and long coats. In winter time you can never go wrong with these staples. In summer I go for shorts paired with a swimsuit! I’m working on wearing more dresses!
4. Were do you shop? (Online? Boutique stores? Markets?)
I do shop when I travel! Love to find unique stuff! I’m also a huge fan of markets and vintage stores! London is perfect for that! And Fairfax on Melrose in Los Angeles. My Wardrobe and net-a-porter are perfect for designer goodies. I love Bali shopping in Seminyak- I still have dresses and jackets I got here 6 years ago! Favourites custom-made by me;)
5. What is in your iTunes ‘recently added’ playlist
6. What film genres are you into? Top all time favourite films?
I do like drama, action and documentary. I used to work at the a cinema when I was a teenager, so I did see a lot films alone!

My proenza bag and my coat from Blkdnm – And I never walk out without a camera!
10. Are you an accessories person? (If so, what kind – Rings? Watches? Hats?)
Less is more, but I have a thing for bags. In black or white, of course! A few rings are always on my fingers, some old jewellery and signet Rings by Norwegian brand Tom Wood. Lately I have been more into belts and watches! I like to wear men watches – I have one from Gant.
11. How do you think your city/home has influenced your style?
I think I’m very influenced by Skandinavia, but for me its all about having an unique style with a personal twist. I pick up things from around the world – from magazines, streetstyle, Instagram, Blogs, travel and friends. I’m surrounded by creative friends and some are fashion designers – I’m lucky to work with fashion every day and we do challenge each other!!!
