NYFW. My beloved Zanita snapped these pictures of me just before the last rays of sun disappeared behind the skyscrapers and I love that magical pre-sunset light she captured so well in these shots!

Fina Zanita plåtade de här bilderna på mig under NYFW precis innan solen försvann bakom skyskraporna och jag älskar det magiska ljuset i bilderna!

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!

BURGUNDY. Next in line of colorful denim are these deep Burgundy ones I found at Topshop. The color is even more stunning in person and I love the dramatic effect they provide when paired with black & gold! The Pierre Cardin knit I’m wearing is probably one of my most treasured vintage finds of all times. I remember screaming with joy when I found it at the bottom of a gigantic pile of random raindeer sweaters (even more so when I saw the price tag, pretty much got it for free). It’ s one of those lifesaver pieces that I whip out whenever an outfit is in need of that extra oomph, and it never fails!
