Chanel mania

Came home late last night to find that my dear friend in London had sent me some lovely pics. She had run into the amazing Lucyann Barry, an apparent fashionista who does what for a living? Buying and selling vintage Chanel jewelery. Yes, I know. And as the Chanel-lover that I am, I'm posting all the pics for you to see!

Just look at the details of these exquisite pieces. And not to mention Lucyann's bold and personal style, look at her fun shoes. I am so in love.

Check out her website here.

Jeans please

Denim is all in for spring, in all shades, shapes and sizes. Nothing says spring more than a pair of light blue jeans does it? The boyfriend jeans are what I´ll be on the hunt for.

Come away with me...

...To spring and Donna Karan. The cold and the snow have never seemed more lingering and stubborn.

Fashion statement

"Stop all this consumerism. I just tell people, stop buying clothes. Why not protect this gift of life while we have it? I don't take the attitude that destruction is inevitable. Some of us would like to stop that and help people survive."
/ Fashion designer Vivienne Westwood

A springy fall

The combination of old Hollywood glamor going youthful. Beautiful. Reem Acra is one of many designers that uses flowery and romantic influences for their fall collections.

My valentine

I continue to give myself things. Thought this time I´d give myself something nice, something old and gold-ish.
The chain looks a bit "I´m still, I´m still Jenny from the block, no matter where I go, I know where I came from. Everybody's mad at the rocks that I wear".

Yummie pieces of fashion

More of the NY Fashion Week. Costello Tagliapietra, not disappointing at all, of course. Classy, clean and drapes, drapes, drapes. And the shoes with the zipper in the back, gorgeous! And do you guys see the red thread that runs in so many collections? The belt around the waist. Still going strong after so many seasons. And why not, it'sa figure enhancer and such an easy way to highlight the clothes.

Luca Luca

The 2010 fall collection of Luca Luca has knocked me off my feet. Again. I love the make-up, the sleek but yet natural styling, and of course the fitted dresses - office wear with a twist so one doesn't die of boredom whilst working. Love it!

In memory

Bold, avant-garde and artistic are three words to which the late Alexander McQueen and his work can be described. He was a designer with clothes that showed a futuristic vision, classical pieces turned into nonrecognition with new shapes and forms. And that is how new fashion epoces begin instead of reviving old eras again and again as we do currently. His spirit will be missed.

Little things

The blouse, the earrings, the ring. It's all so pretty.

Minimalistic spring

Zara's spring goes in a muted palette of camel, soft pink and white. I can feel the spring breeze.

A store found

A lovely friend is visiting from the UK. The gift I got from her is from Anthropologie, a store that has so many fun surprises. Fresh, sober and simple, they've turned classics into moderns with a twist. I think it would be a success here in Stockholm. But for now we'll have to use the web-shopping.
