the scuba top

NEOPRENE. Got back home from London on Monday night and have been in a jet lag coma since. Finally starting to get back to normal life again, and have soo many pictures from both NY and London to post. Starting with the outfit I wore to the Topshop Unique show last Sunday. Fell in love with this neoprene-esque top the second I spotted it at Zara. The texture, the cut, the color.. A+! Went for a really minimalistic look without much fuzz this time, but might try playing around with some layering next time, have so many fun ideas on ways to wear it!

P.S. To everyone that has been asking about my blog shop, it will be up soon! Sorry about the delay but it’s difficult to answer emails + send items to people while traveling, hope you guys understand!

LOVE. The weather in NY was supposed to be really crappy according to all the weather sites I checked out while packing + preparing outfits last week, but instead it turned out to be insanely hot. Not really sure what I was thinking when I threw on a leather skirt and a long sleeved black sweater but what the heck, it’s fashion week! Snapped these pictures outside of the Rebecca Minkoff show yesterday and litterally got stopped every 5 meters by people asking about my cat ear sunnies. They’re from super talented swedish designer Anna-Karin Karlsson, and are probably my all time favorite sunnies. They add such a fun, playful touch to even the most simple outfits and the fact that they make you feel like a super hero is just the icing on the cake.

DESIGNERS. Ladies & gentlemen, let me present to you three of the brightest shining stars on the swedish fashion scene right now:
ALTEWAI.SAOME, NHU DUONG & HERNÁNDEZ CORNET!

These three brands really stood out last week during Stockholm Fashion Week and brought something new and very refreshing to the table. Don’t get me wrong, I love Swedish fashion but sometimes it becomes a bit too safe and predictable, and I love it when relatively “new” brands like these ones has the courrage to rock the boat! I guarantee that you’ll be seeing a lot of these amazingly talented designers in the future, personally can’t wait to get my hands on some of the stunning pieces above.
