the leather vest

LOVE. When this oversized leather vest hit the runway in 2011 I fell head over heels in love with it and deemed it my must-have item of f/w 11. After months of anticipation it finally hit stores and let’s just say my every hope of owning it died the second I saw the hefty price tag of over 2000 dollars.

Now, imagine my excitement when 2 years later I find the very same vest that used to keep me up at night at 75 % off in a corner of Acne Archives (a must visit if you’re ever in Stockholm). It didn’t take me more than 2 seconds to make my mind up and now it hangs safely in my closet, waiting for that perfect moment to shine!

SATURDAY. Arrived in London 2 days ago and I couldn’t be happier to be back. Among all the cities I’ve visited, London holds a special place in my heart and I’m loving every minute I get to spend here!

Yesterday I did a shoot for my-wardrobe.com together with a bunch of other bloggers and in between takes I got the opportunity to go out and snap some pictures of this stunning dress that I found in their showroom. While looking for a place to shoot we magically stumbled upon this old ford mustang in a tiny garage and instantly knew it would make the perfect backdrop for these pictures, and I absolutely love the way they turned out! Huge thank you to Bobbi Brown for the amazing makeup and to Aveda for making my hair look like a million dollars!

NEW YORK. Feels good to be back in NY even though I’m on a crazy busy schedule! If you’ve been wondering why there’s been a serious lack of outfit posts lately it’s because all of my clothes are in boxes at the moment as me and my boyfriend are moving to a new apartment! Actually rediscovered this army jacket while packing for the move and decided to spice it up a bit by layering this leather vest over it. Love using contrasting materials for layering, it really adds a new dimension to your look!

MINT

ACNE. Some pieces from the ss12 resort collection has already arrived at Acne and when I saw this mint green knit in store last week I completely fell in love with it. After thinking about it for a couple of days I finally caved in and bought it. Can’t wait until spring arrives so I can pair it with a white leather skirt, silver jewellery and bare legs!
