Under the pink

Location / Occasion
Kungsträdgården in Stockholm!

These are my grandmothers' sisters' dungarees, and they are from (around) the fifties. I think they are perfect, though they are getting a bit short! (Or I'm getting older and don't want to wear super-short stuff anymore :P). They are great quality and I love that they are cut at the waist, but still not super-tight :)

DIY Studded choker despite nickel allergy!

I have a problem with nickel on my neck, and finding silver chains for ordinary necklaces is not a problem, but finding a studded choker without a metal clasp in the back, and studs which are not touching the neck directry - not so easy. So what to do when you can't find what you're looking for? Create it yay!
It's very simple really, it's just a velvet ribbon, some white yarn and sew-on studs. I'm really happy with how it turned out, and it's very comfortable, so I'm making some more :) Right now I'm making one with lace instead of ribbon, and it works very well :)

White flatform sandal decision!

Waaahhh I need a pair of white flatform sandals this summer. I've already got a pair of white/wood wedges, but they are quite uncomfortable, and they are wedges.... and with wood"colour" on them... plus they are uncomfortable... well, mostly I need a new pair because uncomfortable shoes are the worst kind of shoes. I want to be able to strut around in Tokyo for at least a week in 'em!
The ones I'm mostly in love with at the moment is the Y.R.U Orion, the ones on the left in the middle, but are they a bit too simple? HMMM?? Simple is good and simple is bad. Oh my. What do you think, dear reader? :)

Denim and mirrors

Location / Occasion
Vintage fair in Stockholm again! Me and two friends went together this time. I found a lot of cute stuff of course but I'm trying to save more than usual, so the only thing I actually bought was together with my friend, we paid half the price, 100 sek each! It's a dreamy green flowy thing that we both loved (we don't have the same style at all I would say, so it's very interesting when we find things that we both want!).

D-d-d-d-d-double denimmm, never thought I'd wear that! HAH! But here I am, in dad's old denim shirt and my favourite jeans! The shoes are actually from the prom in 9th grade, which I've kept even though I think they're quite ugly (?) and uncomfortable :P But they are nice with an outfit like this :D

Really craving these two right now -____- a soft furry cardigan from H&M which I had my eyes on when it was new in the store, and it's sooo soft and amazing! Now it's on sale for 500 sek, which is about $77, and that's too much for me, but I can't stop imagining myself in it these chilly spring nights in Sweden when you HAVE to be outdoors because it's not minus Celsius. It's more a cardigan than a jacket, so it's not crazy warm, but still very cozy!
The holographic awesome backpack is from goldenponies, and I can't decide if I can spend a total of 600 sek on it, and it won't arrive until late may I guess... I CAN'T AFFORD THESE?! Not when I'm going to Japan this summer (:DDDD) But I need them in my wardrobe now. >_<

I am not from your tribe

This dress is really not me in a lot of ways, but somehow I'm always dragged to things that are not me :P I found it quite cheap (not by my standards, but I guess maybe for others, about $8), and when I tried it on I fell in love. I've worn it three times since I bought it last saturday (four days ago!), as a dress and as a skirt under a big sweater.
I have a problem with patterns generally, so this should be a nightmare for me, with all the irregular splashes and leopard stuff mixed together! Buuuut obviously I like it :D

DIY - Simple overknees

I found this tie dye fabric really cheap, and I think I'll make a sweatshirt out of what's left :) These were easy to make (even if my sewing machine is really stupid right now...) and I followed this tutorial at The Pineneedle Collective, but made them longer and didn't use an old t-shirt :) Looking forward to summer so I can use these!! :D
