Today's Outfit

Got my roots done yesterday by the lovely Bradley at Bleach:)! So Happy with the result!

Had to take a photo for Odalisque (of myself) so today's been a lot of self portraits.

Odalisque is launching tomorrow:)!!! The opening party is at my Fave Place Ever, Riche in Stockholm and we are sponsored by Absolut Vodka (free drinks)......it  Starts at 7pm (and goes on to 10pm)if you happen to be in Stockholm!!! Too it's launching world wide on the web at the same time as the party starts (US time would be 1pm and UK time would be 6pm). There may be a goodie bag.

The upper right image is me with my inspiration table:) the painting is created by Polina Barskaya for my Coquette Journal. It's a look from Prada's Fall 11 collection.

I'm wearing my Top Shop candy sweater and satin skirt, Vanessa Bruno lace top beneath together with my Nikon and IPhone.

Prepp Day 1: Inspirations

So I have started to prepp for my next shoot for Crash. I am so excited even though I am super stressed. So many projects at the same time,  lovely though:)

These images are the main inspirations for my shoot and it's from Italian Vouge with a certain Steven Meisel being the photographer. It's been a love of mine for a long time.

The blond girl? Her name is Iselin and she is a Wonder. She was one of my first ever models while doing test shoots. I remember that the love of my life had broken up with me and I could barely function...!!! Thank god for a lovely and an adorable photographer who's name is Milla Slertman (she created beauty for the Fall issue of Crash). If you are interested in seeing some images go HERE.

Now I hope for the best best best shoot to happen ever. Please give me the most beautiful clothes, you up there.

Love of Today: Marni at H&M

I am so proud of the Swedish company H&M! Such a leader in the world called fashion.

As a Swede growing up there, it was the clothes at H&M we (me and my adorable mother) went shopping for every season as a child. Later on as a teen it's where I went for my Saturday night dresses:)!

I am in love with Marni at H&M!

And Yes a certain Mademoiselle Sophia Coppola directed the ad campaign:) The first look of the campaign features our British actress Imogen Poots.

Images 2&3 are scans from Russian Vogue.

The wonders will be available to shop across the world from March 8.

My special LBD is actually created by a Mr. Karl Lagerfeld for this company.

Diary 130: A Saturday in East Dulwich

At least so far:)! It's only 3pm.

I dressed up a little bit today, to feel better I think.....I have a new favorite sweater:) It's from Top Shop and it's striped Candy Pink (1&2). Love it. Beneath it I am wearing a Catherine Malandrino candy blue striped blouse. The skirt is of French descent and shopped out of a tiny boutique many years ago on the Upper West Side in Manhattan. In image 2, one can see my house across our lovely little park. Off I went to "town" haha. First stop as it is most Saturdays, the candy store (4-6) Hope & Greenwood. Love Love the candy here. Then my love Franklins, which farm shop (7) is full of beauty. Every Saturday in Dulwich there is too a market (8-10)full of antiques and home made food......I go every week. I found a new book store here in Dulwich today, Rye Books (11-13). Very carefully sourced books, I found such inspirations today and I was soooo tempted to buy buy buy. And now I am here:)! At East Dulwich Tavern (14&15). See me?:)!

Late December I went home to Sweden. First to Stockholm and then to my home town Uddevalla for Christmas:). In Stockholm I went around Djurgarden each morning (images 1&2, the view from coming back having walked around this tiny "island"), I too visited the lovely Skansen one of my days there:) (3&4)! The 2 images of me is at Hotel Karlaplan (5&6) where I stayed. Then off home it was, my home town is surrounded by the ocean (7&8). Stunning and full of my dears. Some January outfits of me (9&10). I met with the Lovely Jessie Lily Adams a few times, my fave time was when she took me to The Breakfast Club (11)by Spitafields. Such a lovely meeting. Royal Tunbridge Wells is a fave place of mine from now on, I went twice in January actually. The food I had at their Juliet's (13)was SO GOOD. See my posts about Tunbridge here and here. In London I too went to the V&A (the cafe, image 14) a few times haha. On my way it looks like this in image 13.
