SNÖKRISTALLER

Af snökristaller klara står fältet prydt; om några veckor endast är allt förbytt. I glittren emot solen och fröjden er; snart sjunken I som tårar i jorden ner. I, vinterns vackra blomster, snart vissnen I, men utaf edra tårar skall blommor bli. Om några veckor endast är allt förbytt: af vårens väna blomster står fältet … Continue reading

Radiant Orchid – 2014 Color of the year

While visiting La Rinascente beauty department in Milan two years ago, I feel head over heels in love with Tom Ford’s Violet Blond make-up series. I’m typically quite traditional in my make-up colour choices and do not experiment too much. That was until the talented make-up artists at Rinascente lured me to get a full-make-over – lips, eyes and … Continue reading

Blondie&Pixie DIY Experiment: Statement Headpiece

In the second workshop for the Blondie&Pixie DIY experiment, Carmen and I decided to play with tulle to create two-different head-pieces. December is one of those months that are crazy-busy and packed with Christmas parties and events. In the midst of doing-everything-that-needs-to-done it can be difficult to find the time (and the energy!) to get … Continue reading

DIY Tulle Skirt

Ever since I saw the below photo several seasons ago, I’ve been obsessed about creating a big-puffy-nude-pink-tulle-skirt. I dissected the tulle-skirt topic here a couple of months ago (love-love-love the white-polkadot-tulle-skirt from Chloe Fall’13) and was planning to schedule this post shortly after. That did not happen (sorry!) as my life over the last two months … Continue reading

Swedish Style: The Streets of Stockholm

When I started think about different topics for the Swedish Style blog series for Shopdescreateurs, the first thing that came to mind was street style and denim (don’t miss the interview with Dr.Denim here). This because Swedish fashion is after all about the functional-chic-affordable approach to Fashion as opposed to Haute Couture. Try to Google “street style” … Continue reading

The Cartoon Comic Trend

After witnessing the cartoon-comic-trend rise from rags to riches – starting at the streets and working its way up to the runway – I finally gave in and bought myself a Forever 21-budget-grey-washed down Minnie tee. I was thinking twice about it been though. Growing up in the 80s, I had my fair share of of … Continue reading

Hong Kong Talent: Twisted Sisters

A few weeks ago when I attended the launch event of #ilivefashion, I spotted a gorgeous-white-deconstructed dress on an equally gorgeous gal. After further introduction, I learned that Maria Mak (the gorgeous gal with the gorgeous dress) is the founder of Hong Kong based label TwS “Twisted Sisters”, and in fact the designer of that dress. A big supporter … Continue reading

Halloween Pumpkin Inspiration

Happy Halloween! For me, the best part about Halloween is to make cute pumpkin decoration and carvings. Halloween wasn’t really celebrated when I grew up in Sweden, so I always had a non-traditional sense for the holiday. I always loved pumpkins though; the shape, the taste and the color! Everything-all-at-once! However, over the years I’ve … Continue reading

Into the Wild North

Thou ancient, thou free, thou mountainous North Thou quiet, thou joyful [and] fair! I greet thee, most beautiful land upon earth, /:Thy sun, Thy sky, Thy meadows green.:/ Thou art enthroned upon memories of great olden days, When honored thy name flew across the earth, I know that thou art and wilt remain what thou … Continue reading
