Yes, Stockholm is in bloom. But signs of spring are also here when you see that all of the flea markets are opening up. This look is completely composed out of flea market findings and vintage. 

The dress is a 1950's classic vintage dress. It is wonderful, and I found it for only 5 dollars at a flea market in Solna (Solnahallen Megaloppis) which is this weekend by the way. The tutu is also a find from the same flea market and the shoes was 1 dollar at Galoppisen, a flea market that starts 31 May outside Stockholm.

For more flea markets coming up this weekend, check this out.

Hi kids,
I had this lovely spring day this weekend. Me and my friend went shopping and past by my favorite place in the world: Independent Kostym. A theater- and movie costume storage with vintage clothing from every decade. Normally they just rent out their clothes, but right now there is an ongoing spring sale were you can actually buy some unique pieces.

So we went there and we found our self pretty lucky. Not only did they have the sale, that day only the clothing they had on for sale was for free (a dream come true). The dress on these pics was only one piece of many that I brought home that day. It is truly amazing. The design reminds me of a 1960's dress and a priest piece. 

The hat is from a flea market from last summer, it also happened to be for free. The glasses from the 90's are my boyfriend's, the shoes from the 90's are mine since forever and the lovely bag from Gudrun Sjödén was a gift from them. 

So this outfit pretty much was for free (lucky me).

Happy New Year, everyone!

Man, what a year. I have had the chance to work with three of my dream carriers. I have met people I would never thought I would meet, heard stories I never thought I would hear and opened up doors that I thought I would never find. It has been a year of impressions. 

And of course I have found amazing finds! This dress is from the 1930:s, it is so delicate! Once it has had an petticoat which was attached by small buttons in the inside of the dress. It cost me 10 dollars (I know painfully cheap!). And I was lucky that it fit me like a glove. The reason for the cheap price was some spots it had, but I don't mind and I think I can wash them away. I am in love with this timeless piece.

You can see where I found it if you click here!

And here is my inspiration (a 1910:s scandal video).

Yesterday the frost covered everything. So it was time to shoot in the winter morning.

I got inspired by the old 1920:s and the feel of the beginning of the centenary. The underskirt is a vintage piece. I bought it at a flea market for only 5 dollars. It is hand sewn and very delicate. The top is so sheer and lovely, and a find from the same flea market Galoppisen outside Stockholm.  

The pain of the frost biting your feet was worth it for this lighting.

More inspiration from a clip from 1910? Check out this clip (a scandal at the time)!

I had a lovely weekend, dancing to jazz until late night on Saturday, and last Friday we had a Cookienight at my place - when all my friends come over and everyone have baked like crazy. I did a chocolate pie, it became a bit too good. See the hanging out part here.

I am happy to show these great pictures by Sara Herrlander. And to show you the amazing Pierrot top that I found at a sale at the Opera House in Stockholm. It is a dream. 

And when this cotton top is combined with a lace dress like this, it easy to wear. The delicate dress was a find at a flea market in Täby for 1 dollar (I know that is crazy!).

Hope you like it, guys. Cause I'm quite in love.

Oh, this darling dress. It is one of two things that I share with a friend. We do not have the same style and we don't live together but we have managed to find this dress and a pair of shoes that we have bought together. 

This was a find at the Vintage Market in Stockholm last spring. You can see all of it here!
It did not cost much, only 20 dollars, so that is 10 dollars each. It reminds me of the art nouveau period. The turban is from the 1940:s and the lovely brooch is my grandfather's mother; my great grandmother Annie. It is dear to me.

So, as you know, I have a love for vintage lingerie, undergarments and swimsuits. This is a maillot, once used by the Opera in Stockholm. The word maillot comes from the french word maille. It was founded under the 1800:s for the the undergarments that the dancers and showgirls at the opera house used on stage. 

I really adore this one cause it straps is like suspenders, attached with delicate buttons. The hat is also a vintage find, made in lovely wool!
