I was mad enough to fight the snowstorm in a bid to hunt down Bankeråt Cafè at Ahlefeldtsgade. And every damn effort was worth it! I fell right in love with this little dark room and its creepy ambience. There were taxidermied animals hanging all around, with decapitated doll head light fixtures and funkier window-ledge knick-knacks. The cafè’s casual eccentricity made me feel right at home.
The Danish word ‘bankerøt’ could be simply translated as bankruptcy, and I wonder why! Everything here is very reasonably priced. A DKK36 latte accompanied my stay-in from the blizzard. Dessert choices were very basic though – chocolate tarts, a walnut cake and brunch sandwiches. Young crowds are known to frequent the area; the combination of Bankeråt Cafè’s full bar selection and its mysterious aura is the main draw for Bankeråt.
However short a visit I paid, I’m just really glad to have witnessed the cafè’s much raved-about creepy decor! I’m all for anything out of the ordinary and BANKERÅT ranks way up on my list for being one of a kind.

Drawn by the ring road’s sleek and appealing post-colonial design, we parked here on our way to Lamai Beach for beach-wear shopping. The ring road consists mostly of restaurants (Pazzo Italian Cuisine and Wine Bar, Mulligan’s Irish Pub) and boutiques (Chicstation, CocoVilla Supermarket, Lamai Boutique). The street stalls on the road leading away from the plaza sells pretty much all the stuff we need!

Tired of wearing a dress that’s ‘so last season’?
Fashion pieces that never go out of style – oh, if only.
Now let’s think, which fashion fad never seems to die? Boho-chic, it seems, has its influences lurking in all the sneakiest ways.
Drawing on bohemian & hippie influences, Boho-Chic began in the 1960s. Its popularity boomed after Sienna Miller strutted her stuff at the Glastonbury Festival, 2004. Constantly re-emerging on the latest catwalks are signature slouchy cardigans, grungy dresses, heavily embroidered belts and cowboy boots.
Less conventional are its alternative titles ‘”hobo-grunge” and “heroin chic”. It’s definitely not easy to nail the style. You can’t just dress like a hobo!
Getting in touch with a dozen online fashion houses and having perused their Boho-Chic collections, I learnt a whole lot. What can these fashion houses share with us about Boho-Chic?

Bonus Style Advice: (from Rabia Khalid and Fredericka Lathbridge of Khalid&Bridges):
Staying in trend this fall with Boho chic should be a breeze: there are many choices available to indulge your style appetite. The great thing about Boho chic is that it’s all about creating an individual style.
The winter season provides a great opportunity to play around with colours as well as layers. Folk-inspired pieces are on trend with all sorts of colour combinations available and patterns inspired by Native American looks and Asian influences.
When it comes to shoes, a great pair of boots can compliment either trousers or jeans with a white blouse or a baggy cardigan/jumper. Slouchy pants are hot off the catwalk from New York and are a fantastic choice to add a little oomph to your outfit this winter. To finish the look off, dress your neck with some statement jewellery. Necklaces are the perfect the accessory to complete your Boho chic look, check out our collection at Khalid and Bridges’s (https://www.etsy.com/shop/KhalidandBridges?ref=si_shop) to find the perfect statement accessory.
