NYC. As you’ve probably noticed I’m not a big fan of heavy winter jackets so in order to stay warm during the colder months I go for lots of layers on top of uniqlo heattech tops and leggings. One of my absolute favorite pieces for layering is this leather vest I bought at H&M 2 years ago. It looks good on top of/underneath pretty much anything (in this case layered over an awesome s/s 13 Andemiu jacket) and it’s one of those pieces I always bring with me when I travel!

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!

THE SKIRT. I bought this skirt at H&M ages ago but never really got around wearing it. It’s been hanging in the back of my closet for years so last week when I sold a bunch of clothes at a yard sale I brought it with me to try and find a new, loving home for it. When it still wasn’t sold at the end of the day I took it as a sign from above and brought it back home with me, and I’m very happy I did!! Isn’t it interesting how sometimes you do the best finds in your own closet?
