ELLE. This Friday I had the pleasure of attending the swedish Elle Gala for the first time. Had a minor break down the day before when I realised that the dress I was going to wear didn’t work out but then I found this amazing bright, floral dress in a vintage store and fell madly in love with it! Decided to pair it with a gorgeous Malene Birger choker necklace that my boyfriend gave me for Christmas, a purple clutch from Acne and shoes from Jessica Simpson. But let’s put the focus on someone else for a minute, how amazing does my friend Ida look in her gorgeous, sheer lace dress from Ida Sjöstedt?! Talk about goddess material! I have the shorter version which is lovely as well, but the longer one is an absolute dream!
Huge thanks to Elle for an amazing evening and of course to Sania for helping me out with the outfit pictures
FIRENZE. For the second look I created during Firenze 4-ever I decided to go for this magnificent, textured Giambattista Valli jacket that I fell head over heels in love with (a romance that left me heartbroken after seeing the price tag, mamma mia!). I paired it with a simple Alexander Wang skirt to give the look more of a downtown feel and topped it off with the bright Casadei shoes, a black proenza schouler bag & Céline sunnies. Totally considering a DIY attempt on this jacket, it’s simply too stunning to go without!
FIRENZE. I got back from Florence last night and I miss the awesome weather we enjoyed so, so much! It wasn’t exactly warm enough for bare legs but when you get the chance to borrow and style some of the most amazing pieces out there, you make it work somehow!
When I was choosing items for my first look my eyes were instantly drawn to this amazingly bright top/skirt combo by italian designer Caterina Gatta. She’s a new designer for me but after reading about her she became even more interesting. I especially love the fact that she uses a lot of beautiful vintage fabrics from other designers (such as Versace, Yves Saint Laurent, Pierre Cardin and Givenchy to name a few). The combination of the old prints and the modern silhouette really makes her pieces stand out and I definitely hope to see more of her designs in the future! As for the Proenza Schouler bag, you can’t even imagine how hard it was to leave it at the Luisa Via Roma store after the shoot, such a stunning, stunning color!! Same goes for the lovely Casadei shoes, if I only had a bigger wallet…
Now, still curious about what was hiding in the Céline shopping bag? Well, the Céline Audrey sunglasses in the picture above of course! Definitely the most perfect pair of sunglasses that has ever graced my nose (actually thinking about buying them in tortoise as well..). More Firenze 4-ever looks to come!
