Interview With Jannike Ebbing (@bisse_)
VV Girl Of The Month
Real Estate Agent And Social Media Superstar @bisse_ wearing the Chelsea Coat, Pearl Top and Jersey skirt
Who is Bisse?
I’m a 31 year old career woman working as a real estate agent and interior designer. At the same time I’m writing one of Sweden’s most visited interior design blogs and Instagram.
How come you became a real estate agent?
I was helping my big sister, who’s also working as a real estate agent, for some time in Stockholm and I fell in love with the profession. I love that I’m able to control my own working hours, how much or little I want to work, and that I’m helping other people.
Do you have any tips on how to achieve your dream job?
Visualise it, pretend that you’re already there. Set up a board with all your goals so that you can see them everyday. Work hard to get there and why not ask your role model for a lunch. Get a mentor.
What’s your view on clothing when it comes to your career?
It’s very important to dress right in my profession. I’m taking care of peoples personal finances and I want my clothes to mirror how I am as a real estate agent.
What is your go-to piece on a morning when you have absolutely no inspiration and are in a hurry to work?
Definitely a nice white blouse and black trousers together with my favourite tailored jacket – a combination that always works.
What do you treat yourself with when it comes to clothing?
I treat myself with nice jackets in many different colours.
What are your favourite pieces from Veronica Virta’s fall collection?
The Kate skirt and the matching Diane jacket that I posted on Instagram a few days ago, SO NICE! I also love the black Rosie pants, they fit perfectly and are so comfortable, and all the jackets haha.
Do you have any style icons?

‘Back To Business’ with Veronica
Interview with Veronica about the 9-5 business look!
Your designs are perfect for wearing to the office. How did you decide to start designing business wear for women?
When I started the fashion brand Veronica Virta I started designing clothes that I, myself, thought were missing on the market. I have previously been working as Finance Manager and CFO and have always had difficulties finding nice and feminine clothes that are suitable both at the office, but also during my time off. Femininely tailored clothing that can be matched in many different ways, that was the idea behind the brand Veronica Virta. Apparently there are many more women out there that values this kind of design, considering that the brand has been growing at record speed. I also love that our customers are everything between 18 and 80 years old!
Do you have any tips for women who want to dress more femininely at work?
A couple of tweed jackets in your wardrobe is a good base. The matching possibilities are endless. It’s nicer to buy clothes that you can wear both to the office and on your time off. Our design is classic and timeless and you are gonna want to wear the garments for many years.
How do you take your office look from day to night in minutes?
During the day I’m wearing a black dress and a tweed jacket. During the evening I’m wearing the same tweed jacket but changing the dress to a lace top and a pair of tight jeans.
