So as may have noticed, I'm a sucker for vintage lingerie. This pair of lace shorts are from the beginning of the 1900:s. They are perfect as shorts for the summer, made in strong cotton and in impeccable condition. Fantastic for being over 100 years old, right?
They cost me 5 dollars at a flea market in Solna, Sweden. The flea market that I have mentioned before (a great one).

The top is a bullet bra from the 1950:s. The bullet bra got it's name from the shape of it's cups, it gives you a nice 1950:s shape when you wear it underneath clothes, but this piece can also be used as just a lace top really. 

Well, I should head to bed now. Tomorrow I have an early day baking for friends and then it's premier for one of the biggest and best flee markets in the Stockholm area for the summer: Galoppis! I have waited all year.

This vintage top is bought in the awesome boutique Kiloshop in Paris. It is such an amazing vintage store were you buy your clothes by its weight! So it's super cheap to buy tops, dresses and accessories but think twice about the jeans and jackets. 

The rose is a brooch from H&M and the bow is bought in a flee market in Solna, Sweden for 1 dollar. The shorts was a find: a pair of topshop shorts for like 2 dollars. The leather jacket has been mine since I was 6 years old, so it is super soft. 

Hope you like the mint!

7.00 in the morning.
The city is in a really pretty stage right know. To get the best view you have to see it in the morning without all the stress and the mountain of people.

This is a pair of 1930:s silk shorts. In one of the pictures you can see the hand stitched patch with the former owners name: Vera Bolinder. It has a gorgeous flower pattern and tiny buttons. I fell in love with them. They were sold to me by a dealer in the antique fair in Sweden, and they are in mint condition.
