When owning a vintage tutu, who can resist drowning it in water? 

I was hoping to get a flow with the water streams, and I was glad to see it did. The vintage tutu is not as stiff as some vintage tulle can become. Probably because this piece is from the 1960:s or so, in a soft tulle. And don't worry, the water is so clear so it was easy to clean it afterwards.

I bought the tutu in the flea market Solnahallen Megaloppis, in Sweden just outside Stockholm. It is about three times a year and I always find great stuff. Next time is the 4th and 5th of October!

The lace top is actually a baby doll dress that I found at the flea market Galoppisen this summer. 

Do you wanna see more from my vintage summer spree, Dalarna where the photos were taken and Galoppisen? Well click here, you lucky you.

So September is here but in Sweden we still have some hot summer days left! 

Last week I visited my friend's country house in Dalarna. So stunning, just by a lake close to the mountains. This is what I wore, a vintage sailor jumpsuit! I adore it, I found it on a flea market close to Stockholm the weekend before. It cost me 2 dollars! The girl who sold it was going to move so she just wanted to get rid of her stuff (the best kind of seller). See it here!

The amazing sailor hat is from the beginning of the 1900:s. So it is about a 100 years old and such a darling item! You can see the post I made earlier with it here.I bought it on a flea market in Gustavsberg two years ago. And a new Mega flea market is actually due there this weekend!

Sometimes you are just a lucky, lucky girl. 

When I was a flea market last spring, Solnahallens Megaloppis, this beauty was hanging on the wall where two young girls were selling clothes. This is a flea market where you find mostly collectible porcelain and fun things combined with garage sale type of stuff. I have made real finds here! But this beautiful 1950:s dress takes the prize.

The girl who sold it to me said it was her grandmothers dress. She did not want it, and her grandmother had past away. But she treasured it, and so do I. She wanted 20 dollars for it! Nothing for a precious vintage piece which is almost untouched. 

So you can imagine that I was glad to wear it when one of my best friends got married in June. See all the goodies here.

So finally I am back from Tokyo, the west coast trips and all the fun! Sometimes it feels good just being at home. The Tokyo trip was insane!

It is not easy finding out where to go for the best vintage finds in Tokyo. Most of the webpages are in Japanese and they are hard to locate. But after some research and talking to people at the spot I found a lot of pearls. Read all about it here.

Well I am back and well in Sweden now, as you may see. This lovely hat was a find at the flea market tour that was in Sweden last spring, 'On the flea'. It only costed me 3 dollars, nothing! The lace dress is also a flea market find but it is not that old. It's a Weekday dress and I paid 1 dollar for it.I really adore its clean lace back. However I had to cut the underskirt lining because I did not like it being longer than the lace. And now I am very happy with it!

And oh, if you want to see some amazing pics from the Japan trip when I was at the mountains, check this out.

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, 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, 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 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!
