Boardwalk outfit!

I guess you already figured out I'm longing for summer. So I have been dreaming up some more summery outfits.



On the boardwalk you need something casual, shoes that you can walk in and that can stand a trip down to the beach. But PLEASE don't be too casual! Last year at the Pier Mall on the Atlantic City Boardwalk we met a lady browsing at Victoria's Secret, I would guess in her sixties wearing something like this over her bikini.

If you desperately want to be tasteless this summer you can get it at Fun 'n Folly. Well, I guess that speaks for itself....

Here's my solution for a practical AND stylish boardwalk day.


Hat Forever 21 

T-shirt American Eagle 


Shorts Citizens of Humanity, Net-a-Porter


Shoes HM 

Bracelet American Eagle 

Bag Anya Hindmarch, Net-a-Porter

Wow Mandy Tsung!!!!!

I just discovered an amazing artist. The incredibly talented Mandy Tsung. Her art is proof that the eyes really are windows to the soul. Maybe you all heard about her and I am just a bit slow. But if you haven't seen her work check it out here! on her official website. Do it now!

Me, a pinup?

Maybe I want to be a pinup this spring.... Or at least dress like one. I mean, if I had to choose between having a body like Kate Moss or a body like those of Marilyn Monroe and Bettie Page. Well, hey pass me those curves! This is what made me long for rockabilly, Cadillacs and red lipstick.

Here's what my pinup me wants!
(And I really don't think my husband would mind)







And this bag, it is SO Wilardy! I looove Wilardy!

If you wanna be a pinup too, you'll find all these things and more at

Vintage shopping! And all that jazz!

I went thrift store shopping yesterday with my sister in law. Here's what I brought home!


A blue fuzzy Kangol hat.

A little bit of flowers while I'm waiting for spring. Observe that these are FASHION earrings... I loove flowers and the colour of these earrings is fab!

And the best find! I looove these! They remind me of jazz shoes or a ballet version of oxfords. Also they make me think of Chanel's colour contrast ballerinas.
  Even though I like the shoes I found, I would also like to have some more "manly" shoes like brogues or oxfords. There was a great pair in light blue suede from Ten Points at the thrift store, but no matter how hard I tried to press them on to my feet, they obviously weren't my size......Or maybe I like them best with a feminine twist.... Like these glittery Fred Astaire's from Christian Louboutin, for 395 euros at 

All that jazz!

Bangs! Inspired by Erin Fetherston, styled by me

I had made my mind up not to post pictures of me in this blog, I wanted the focus to be on style and fashion. But I found it's hard to show your style without showing yourself. Especially when it comes to hairstyles. So here goes nothing....


I did it! I cut my hair! I nearly scared myself to death, but I like the outcome. It's kind of seventies, but also kind of Brenda from the original 90210 and a little bit of Bettie Page.

Damn you Erin Fetherston! Ps. I love you!

Here we go again. I think I'm going to cut bangs.... Again. Ever since my childhood I've had bangs on and off again. I love to have bangs, but I get bored with them after a while. And then it takes FOREVER to grow them back. At least it feels like forever.... But I think I'm going to go cut bangs right now. Erin Fetherston I blame you!

But you gotta love Erin. Like this dress. I want it!!! And the tassel necklaces. Mmmmm....

Or this one, I want that too!!

And this!

And this!

And this!
Ps. Erin Fetherston I love you!

More Alice in Wonderland!

If you want some more inspiration from Alice in Wonderland, check out these amazing Vogue photos from US Vogue december 2003. Shot by the marvelous Annie Leibovitz featuring Natalia Vodianova and also some of the biggest designers. Haven't you always wanted to see Marc Jacobs as the caterpillar or John Galliano as the Queen of Hearts?

More Disney Couture!

Disney couture, a grown-up way to show your childish love for all things Disney. They hired Kidada Jones to design for them, a smart move. In 2005 she designed jewellry inspired by Alice in Wonderland. Jones friends Nicole Richie and Lindsey Lohan were spotted wearing pieces from the collection, that probably helped sales. But really, I think the pieces sell themselves.

The wrap bracelets are bestsellers and now come in a lot of different themes. I really like the look, and fairy tales are SO in this year. Why were they ever out?!

They ARE called Couture for a reason though and as a fashionista on a budget,
I cannot always get what I want.


But I could get this. This Tinkerbell themed knock-off cost me 35 sek, around $ 5 at swedish KappAhl. Compare to around 1500 sek, just over $ 200 for the real thing.

RIP Alexander McQueen!


The world has lost an amazing talent. A designer with one foot in the past and one in the future. His designs were always fresh and dramatic. I guess he must have felt he didn't have a reason to live, but I bet thousands of women (and men) around the world would beg to differ.

My spring wardrobe staples (some of them at least!)

I have a feeling this is going to be a staple in my spring wardrobe. This is one of my many thrift store finds. It is a Strenesse camel hair blazer, I guess it was produced sometimes in the nineties from the look of it.  I like to roll up the sleeves and wear it with skinny jeans and high heels. Hardly used it was a real catch at only $10 or 75 sek.

And here are my babies! Well, my shoe babies anyway... Bought them this summer at DSW. They're leather JS by Jessica Simpson. And they ARE comfy! While I was trying them on, totally enamored, my husband asked me: "Will you be able to walk in those?" Stupefied I looked at him thinking: "What does that have to do with anything?" I must say, when it comes to shoes I'm stupid enough to buy shoes that might keep me seated all through the party. Once at a wedding I wore a pair of beautiful vintage fifties pumps, they were SO uncomfortable! I wore them at the wedding ceremony, but even I was wise enough to bring flats for the party. Only, by the time I gave in to the flats, my feet were so swollen I had to have a male friend help me put my shoes on. I like to think I looked like Cinderella when he aided me but honestly, with my swollen feet and face twisted from the pain I probably looked like one of the stepsisters....

And one GREAT birthday present! Thanks grandad! Well, he paid and I chose.... These leather riding boots come from swedish page La Redoute . They are versatile, you can dress them up or down.

And one GREAT christmas gift! These are Disney Couture goldplated earrings. I am an avid Disney fan and on the leaves it says "Believe" on one side and "xoxo Tink" on the other. Best believe in fairies!!! I am becoming quite the earring collector. My husband has been giving me some nice ones.

He has given me a lot of beautiful jewellry through the years. My absolute favorites are my wedding band, my engagement ring, a gold anklet he gave me the morning after our wedding and these Judith Ripka earrings he gave me this summer on our fifth wedding anniversary. I LOVE Judith Ripka! These are silver earrings with amethyst. They will be dangling a lot from my earlobes this spring!
