Notes from a Swedish stylist


So, I’m Officially Married!

It’s already been a week since we got married in city hall! Before all this, I did’t think I was the kind of person who cared too much about the marriage stuff. I thought that sharing a life, child and home was big enough, and more important than having a ring on my finger. But the moment we said “I do” something changed. I now feel that we are closer and more of a team than ever before—it’s such an “us against the world-feeling”, and I love that!

For the city hall ceremony I wore this beautiful dress from Deitas with shoes from Prada. Lucky me, getting to dress in white for more than one occasion!


A Camel Coat for Fall

Updating my wardrobe for Fall is something I find myself doing less and less. I feel that at this point, I have pretty much all I need. Yet I dream of finding a coat that goes with the color of my beige pug Stella’s hairs. So I’ve found myself browsing the second hand market for a high quality and timeless camel coat. When I’ve found it, I’ll be completely ready for Fall!
Tips, anyone?

Have you heard about The Stockholm Act festival that is taking place this week on various locations around Stockholm city? It’s so ambitious, with inspiring speakers and activities all week (check out the schedule here!).
I’m really excited about Make it last’s participation on Thursday and Friday (August 24-25). Electrolux has invited us to set up a mini flea market at The Nordic Museum with exclusive pieces sourced from our own and our stylist friends’ wardrobes, and I’ll be there giving you my best tips on how to build a timeless wardrobe.
By our side, Electrolux will be hosting a Care & Repair event, giving you the chance of having your most beloved garments washed, dried and steamed. On Friday, Houdini is setting up a repair and remake station alongside them to complete the experience.
Really hope to see you there!
