So guys, you know I am in love with vintage lingerie and underskirts. Here is a vintage corset from the 1940:s. Such a lovely model, with lace in the front. I found it on the Vintage fair in Stockholm which is every spring and autumn. But if you can't wait, you can always go to Sommarloppisen in Stockholm! The underskirt is from Yesfor.com, I just could not help myself. I like underskirts too much.

And by the way, we has an awesome masquerade for my brother last weekend. See pictures from it here.

So I can't begin to tell you how excited I am. On Sunday I am taking a plain to Japan! I have never been there before and now I will be in Tokyo for 10 days. If anyone have some tips of what to do, what shops to go to and what I just can't miss - write to me! 

I am lucky because I am going there with my friends to visit my friend's brother. He knows the city some what and the language. And besides walking around in the amazing city, I will have two days in the mountains! When I come back I will have so much to tell you. And so much to show.

This dress is also from a package from China. It is from Yesfor.com, and I really do enjoy a simple black dress. The hat was a bargain at a flea market (for free) and the sunglasses is my boyfriend's, from when he was like 5 years old. So I guess they are from the 1992. The leather jacket is also from a childhood. I got it when I was like 6 years old.

Such a lovely summer day today. June has been cold in Sweden, and today the summer finally broke out for real. This lovely blue dress (you might have noticed that it is one of my favorite colors for the moment) came to my place in a package from Chine. It is from Yesfor.com and I am really happy with it, as you might see. The underskirt comes from a flea market for 2 dollars (Solnahallen of course), and the vintage shoes is a gift from a friend. 

Tomorrow is my brothers 30 year old birthday, and it will be an amazing masquerade at my friend's chapel! If you want a glimpse from a party the other year, a 1920:s one, check it out here. And, if you can see the movie from the year 1929 (a masquerade at Grand Hotel) check it out. It is truly amazing. Talk about Gatsby for real.

Hope you enjoy the summer as much as this!

So a typical day at the flea market - going there with some friends, eat cinnamon buns when you get super tired of all the amazing and cheap vintage and second hand finds that you see everywhere and get a free hat! See all of my pictures here. Okey, a free hat is not that typical, but not surprising either. It was a free flea market find at Galoppisen. That flea market that goes on every weekend close to Stockholm, the whole summer (expect for like midsummer). 

And then we have these pants. As I have mentioned before, working in an office environment right now, means that I have the possibility to experiment with 'office wear'. I am surprised of how super excited and inspired I feel! These pants is a flea market find, they are from the brand ACNE and they cost me 3 dollars (yeahs, 3 dollars!) at Solnahallen Megaloppis. The top was bought in the flea market On the flea when it was in Stockholm, for 2 dollars. The shoes are from Beyond Retro's stock sale, they cost me 6 dollars. All and all this whole outfit costed me 16 dollars (with sunglasses included). I mean that is kind of a okey amount of money. So I am excused for going to flea markets and buying a bunch load of clothes every weekend now, right?

One of my favorite places to rest is by the lake. No matter the weather.
This pair of pants was a real find. They cost me 2 dollars at the Solnahallen Megaloppis flea market, and they are from the fancy brand Tiger of Sweden (which means they are worth about 300 dollars). They are never worn and super soft. I love the huge flairs and that they move in the wind. I also love that I have my work at the magazine Minnenas Journal, which means I can play with 'office clothing'.

So guys, this weekend means that the best thing on the whole year happens! Well very close to the very best thing anyway: the huge flea market Galoppisen in Täby starts! It will be every weekend from 12-16 from now on and the whole summer. Täby is like 15-20 minutes from Stockholm city with bus or train so don't you miss it. It is huge! I know where I will be and spend my change.

This is a vintage dress brought in Paris. It is actually the only dress I bought there this time (most of the times I come home with like 2000 dresses). This time my interest in vintage items had shifted a bit though. When I was there earlier my interest were more in 1950:s-1970:s dresses; this time I am looking more at 1900:s-1930:s items. For instance I bought a beautiful perfume bottle from Guerlain, one of the most famous perfume companies in the world. It is from the 1920:s and it is an atomizer, so it has one of those puffs! I have to show it to you guys soon. It is adorable.

The items from the beginning of the century are of course often expensive. If something is a 100 years old, it is seen as an antique. However they are lovely and in Paris you can find a lot of them! If you haven't seen it before, click here and read and see more about the quirky antique markets in Paris.

This dress caught my eye in one of those busy vintage stores that you can only find in that city. You can see them on the street Rue de la Verrerie and around that neighborhood. It was cramped with people and you almost had to fight to see anything. But it is here that you can find the real bargains! My boyfriend find an awesome 1950:s leather jacket, and I found this dress. It cost me 9 euros. I love it because it reminds me of a tennis sports wear in the 1920:s. However the fabric says to me that it probably was made in the 1970:s, maybe in the same time era when the 1920:s was back in fashion again because of the old The Great Gatsby movie that was produced in 1974.

Something old something new something borrowed something blue.

I could almost wear this to my wedding. The shirt is my boyfriend's, the flower shorts was 1 dollar at a flea market and the sunglasses are produced by Beyond Retro. And then of course the white shoes, which I got from my friend (a bonus).

Talking about weddings, one of my closest friends are getting married in about a month! So what to wear? Well actually, I thought about a 1950:s silk dress that I have - but then two weeks ago I found an amazing, amazing vintage dress that maybe will be the one! It was at Solnahallen Megaloppis - that I am always jabbering about. A young girl were selling some of her grandmother's clothes. One of them was a yellow and green flowered 1950:s wonder. With a tiny waist, a wide skirt and no straps. I fell in love. She wanted 15 dollars for it (which is nothing!). I am so happy for it, and I will show you it someday soon. You can see more from the flea market here.
