Notes from a Swedish stylist


A Lifelong Commitment

Posted in Style

Coat, Balenciaga/Vestiaire collective. Trousers, Acne Studios. 

A few weeks back I wrote about decluttering our homes, and looking back at the past three years I realize that this journey started in my wardrobe. Dressing in the morning used to be filled with anxiety, which for someone who works as a stylist might be a warning sign. But these past years I have really gone back to basics and I always choose quality over quantity. I rather save up and get something I know I will love forever rather than to be seduced by fast fashion trends. I want a lifelong commitment to my new wardrobe investments. I think this simple black coat from Balenciaga is a great example, I got it second hand and so the price wasn’t too bad either. It’s one of those garments that can dress up jeans and a crewneck and also looks amazing with a navy blue long silk dress and strappy sandals. A classic.
