Here, there and back again...

The last few days have been a bit hectic...

Saturday I went to the vintage fair and bought a few goodies!

These shoes were on displays - I just love them ! Although I cant afford them right now...

Look at these retro shoes!

This is were I start thinking "The Vintage Baroness might like these...hm..." :)

Then later that evening I went to a club and saw the fabulous Duchess Dubois!

In the audience there was this woman in a hat she had made herself as a homage to Schiaparelli !

Me, in a festive mood.

Monday I had to travel to... Zürich for a meeting.

As the meeting was inside a hotel at the airport and I had 4 hours left before my return flight... home I went into town to enjoy what was a beautiful and sunny spring day !

It was fun walking the streets of Zürich.

I stopped here to look at all the amazing crystal work.

Took some pictures.

And left wanting this... :)

Easter preparations!

Tuesday I was back in Sweden, re-apacked and then straight to Helsingborg to visit my dear friend Yvonne!

We have had such a great time!

Today we took a stroll by the beach and...

And ended on the balcony with some "Wednesday Champagne" - mind you any old day would have been just fine for a lil´champagne drinking ! ;)



This weekend was a big vintage fair. Here I am on my way to the fair. Notice the faux bang... hm, I´m quite enjoying this new look! More to come on the goodies I bought in my next post, but I need to tell you right away about the shoes I feel in love with !!

There "pimped" clogs from Swedish Hasbeens. This model is Mimi :) They are so cute ! I think I have to buy a pair for the summer !


Inspired by Fleur !

So, here I am late at night, getting ready to go to bed ( which is the reason for the no-make-up-bed-jacket-style photos you re about to see... :) when I checked Fleur de Guerres latest twitter post, where she posted this beautiful image! I was so inspired that I started fooling around in front of the mirror and ended up looking like ...

This! I have NEVER had a faux bang in my entire life and I´m not quite sure what to think...

Perhaps, I just need getting used to it? Of course, I didn't have a rat filler so the shape is not quite right, still - what say ye of the vintage blog world? If you don´t think I look all too strange, I just might wear it to tomorrows vintage fair ! :)

Great new book by Lauren Rennells!

You can get a sneek peak here !


Vintage Baroness has a give-away!

Perhaps you've already heard, but the fabulous and utterly chic Vintage Baroness the quintessential 1930s vintage queen herself, is celebrating her 600th member. And to celebrate she is having a give-away ! The prize? 60USD worth of items in her shop Adelines Attic on Etsy.

This is the dress I am pinning for should I win! Doesnt it look grand! More pics here.




This arrived to day. Seamed shiny nylon stockings at the price of 5 €/7 $ - sweet! :)


Todays outfit and my first mobile blogpost!

Needed a little structure today - this is what I chose, grey (image not too good) turtleneck, grey pencil skirt, vintage earrings & brooch and a vintage jacket with fur trimmings.



In Sweden we have this old beautiful world for sewing with a group of women called "syjunta". Today some women came over to my home to do just that!

This is what I wore.

Together with my red shoes.

And after trying to darn some vintage stockings (very Vivianne Westwood-like I must say... :)
I learned how to do this! Isn't this pretty! And useful too!

Spring is...

The darling buds of... April!

Wearing shades because the light is too bright - hooray!

Sitting outdoors and enjoying the sun with...

ones man - haha!


Suddenly Last Summer

Swedish Television recently sent this film as a tribute to Elisabeth Taylor. Quite a powerful film!

Otherwise my life has been a bit stressful lately... Need to find a less expensive apartment ( even though I am very comfortable where I am ) and have been running around meeting after meeting talking about different directing possibilities. Being a freelancing artist is hard work...
