Coco Chanel

Patti Smith

A while back, I read the book Just Kids by Patti Smith.  From the very first page, I was in love with her style of writing.  It's poetic and descriptive, playful and captivating all at the same time.  I'm thinking I might just re-read it.. as soon as I finish one of the many other books I've started.  I guess some books are just harder to put down.

Steel Grey 2

This is the Vivienne Westwood dress I wrote about a few days ago.  I took it in a few sizes, changed the zipper and wore it out on Saturday - I'm really happy with the result! It's a really nice color. Not sure if it showed up so well in the photos, it was pretty dark when I took them (but yeah, it's always dark in Sweden these days..) Anyway, here it is:

Red Meets Black

"The collection is inspired by French Dandyism – a slightly more rugged, less class oriented and a bit more arty than the British equivalent."  Whatever that means, I like the result.

Yesterday / Cerise

Here is a better picture of the coat I wrote about last month.  It was definitely one the best purchases I've made in a while - been wearing it pretty much daily.

Yesterday's wear:

coat - WERA Stockholm <> jeans - H&M <> scarf - one I made last winter

Steel Grey

Today I'm fixing this Vivienne Westwood dress I found, with all the tags still on it, in a second hand shop.  The zipper in the back of the dress was broken when I got it.. and it's a few sizes too big.  So  I'm taking the old zipper out, taking the dress in to make it fit and putting a new zipper in.  I'll show what the dress looks like when it's finished.

A Dream of Spring

I know I keep writing posts about spring, but it's just so dark and cold here that my mind wanders off to future warmer times. Right now my dreams of spring look a little something like this:

DvF Spring 2013

I really like how saturated the colors in the first look are. Last spring I made a skirt in a similar shade of turquoise.  The last look, I wouldn't mind wearing tonight.  It's almost too much with all the dots, but at the same time it somehow works.

What are you going to be wearing when spring rolls around?

Love of Gold

GoId shoes with black trim from DVF.  I think these would look stunning with a long, flowy white dress. Or black.
Or pretty much anything.

Daily / Tiger

New jeans tend to fit better than old jeans.  I don't like the actual process of jeans shopping (probably not the only one) so it's been a while since I actually went into a store and tried a bunch of different pairs on.  It was worth the effort, though, because I love how this pair fits!  Wearing them with a black top I found when I was in the states this summer.  And one of my favorite necklaces.. which I'm curious about. I have no idea where it's from originally. 
Any ideas?
