Shoes for queens

Shoes for US!

I am so happy for creative designers and amazing shoes! Shoes are art. Walking art that makes the owner happier, confident and hopefully not in pain. I love heels because they make me longer and my legs look great.

 

 

Heels make me strut and walk with more confidence and I would love to buy a new shoe wardrobe for this summer! I mean... just LOOK at these beauties! How can you NOT fall in love and now I feel sad about online shopping. My patience wouldn't last for long if I couldn't try them on and touch the fabric. Daydreaming is cheaper haha :p

Spring.. PLEASE!

Since I am home caught with a nasty flu, but no fever at the moment, I have enough energy to write a new blogpost. This winter seem to be Game of Thrones eternal! We are all getting so damn sick of the snow in Sweden, especially in the north but some like it.. like skiers and others. But roofs are breaking, my office walls are leaking and its just too much right now.

 

So to ease the spirit within me, I looked at some spring outfits and warmer days...

Plus..size?

Beautiful women in different sizes. This image made me happy and less harsh against myself.

 

"Alexandra Waldman, founder of Universal Standard, which serves women size 10 to 28, often gets asked about the future of the plus-size market. “If we are still talking about a plus-size market 10 years from now, we will have failed,” Waldman says. “Our goal is to make sure that term doesn’t exist anymore.”

In 2017, there was a growing awareness about how poorly the fashion industry has responded to the needs of plus-size women, who constitute a full 68% of the market. Plus-size fashion models like Ashley Graham spoke up about inclusivity, designers like Christian Siriano and Michael Kors added plus-size clothes to their collections, and brands like Universal Standard, Project Gravitas, and Eloquii made a splash in the market with high-end, well-made clothes in a wide range of sizes.

The industry still tends to treat plus-size women as a separate category from “straight-size” women, who are under a size 14."

Read the full article here: https://www.fastcompany.com/40497225/2018-fashion-we-drop-plus-size-and-evolve-past-the-retail-apocalypse

 

Personally I will soon be in the plus size if I don't loose weight, and I want to! But I envy cool curvy fuller women with a bad ass confidence who loves their body and size. Like Ashley Graham. She is so darn beautiful.

It's a never ending dilemma?? Do I have to doubt my body all my life? NO I don't want to, but I feel more comfortable with myself if I'm a bit smaller.. ugh.. damn stereotypes. I'm glad more women are saying "NO fuck this I am a woman and I'll do as I wish, I can't worry all my life to please everyone!"

 

So I started to compare plus size clothing and models on different online stores. I also picked my favorite pieces for you to be inspired by.

 

First of, swedish Ellos.

Dear Valentine....

Hi everyone.

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!

<3

 

I can't lie and say that I don't dislike this day as a single woman but after so many years I've learned how to get through it. Stay at home, don't look online, write a list about why you are so awesome and bake yourself something :P No.. not really, but it's important to show yourself some love whether you're in a relationship or not.

 

Like this one...

 

 

I chose some items suitable for this day of celebrating love. Inside, outside, at work or in bed. Sexy, warm, sultry stuff for the single or the relationship woman.

Do you wonder why the color red is so powerful when it comes to flirting?

Psychology and research explains this here.

 

"Learn from our animal neighbors – use red to quickly and easily attract a mate. Pay attention to the colors you wear. Incorporate a little crimson, burgundy, cardinal, rose, and wine color into your wardrobe. Make use of the color of love and get the romance you desire."

 

However you spend this day, enjoy it, or not! Do whatever you want. Fashion is forever, clothes won't leave you like men do :P haha.

Bye bye H&M?

Hi!

A couple of days ago I saw wonderful news on my facebook page. It was a post from Elle I think, "Uniqlo to open first Scandinavian store in Stockholm". So I had to check it out... and I am excited and quite impressed by their prices, collection and items :) It's similar to H&M and I can understand if they feel some competition.

Personally I've been faithful to H&M for many years and their brand is very strong. We'll see what happens. Will they succeed or flop? Their outfits are very 'safe', not so edgy or special like H&M can produce from time to time. A big plus is their variety of colors on some items. I am so sick of black, grey and white only! I need colors in my life! So do you perhaps?. I looked through their collection and my final judgement is "Nice, safe, basic and colorful".

 

The local writes:

"Sweden is one of the world's most innovative nations and a country that appreciates technology as well as design and is a leader in modern life," added Yanai.

The first store will open at the Kungsträdgården park in the heart of Stockholm, in a building known as 'Sverigehuset' ('Sweden house'), designed by architect Sven Gottfried Markelius in 1969.

The store will span an area of 1,580 square metres across four levels and is scheduled to open in autumn 2018. Sweden will become Uniqlo's 20th market and its seventh country in Europe.

 

So my Swedish fellows, let's long for September?

 

I handpicked some items from the uniqlo.com website for you to see (and potentially buy). I love their Lookbook too so if you don't wanna scroll here on my blog just click on the link and you'll get a bigger view of their collection.

Oui!

Dear readers,

 

Thank Facebook and Instagram for sneaking in commercial and ads because sometimes it's interesting and that's how I found Adel Paris

They ship worldwide and it's free! They have a 50% sale going on now too so we're lucky!

I really love the uniqueness of the clothes and shoes on Adel Paris and it would be a dream to buy all of it for this spring and summer. Amor!

The models are very skinny though so I'm not sure how it would look like on me and my curvy full body rather than tall and skinny. The usual dilemma. Sigh. There is only one solution, to buy it and try it! And order one size above your regular since sizes run slightly small.

Artsy fashion

Hi guys! Happy new year!

 

After all this darkness and snow I thought we needed some colors and fun! I do! Art is one of my favorite interests. To look at, paint and create, admire.. and possibly wear. But art is a challenge and up for interpretation. Because of it's variation everyone can find a style or a piece of art that they love. I like Claude Monet's romantic paintings for example. But abstract art is cool too!

I found the items below during my fashion google:ing. Most of the garments come from Asos.com (because they are the best?!). For me these garments are fashionable art. If fashion and art had a baby. And I'm not talking about wearable art, like real paintings on fabric, more like artsy inspired clothing. Colors and theme. Use all the crayons. Make an (im)print! Be forgettable like the true artists. "OBEY" the art ;)

Confessions

 

I don't know what's right or wrong in the fashion blogging world. What to write and not to write, I'm just myself. A small town girl that moved from Stockholm and back to my hometown in the north of Sweden, and here I am right now living day by day. I needed some detoxing from stress, concrete and tons of people around me to live in a quiet but familiar place and relax. I do miss the pulse, the stores, the fashionable people and all the restaurants and my friends ofc. But I have to say I recommend to try different places and different lifestyles before you die. So I am going to be me, I hope that's ok with you.

 

So.. Hi!

It's saturday and I'm tired from yesterday's dancing and drinks. As I should be since I am not 20 years old...  I'm 30

 

 

But I'm happy, my brother and I danced and laughed like only siblings can do. When I scrolled down the Wakakuu website and saw the clothes from Rodebjer I woke up and smiled <3

Where did the little black Gucci dress go I wonder? Back to the 90's? She certainly appreciate more comfortable outfits now and I love the clothes for their relaxed vibe.

Cabin fever

 

TGIF and even though I am staying in town this weekend I love to go away to our family cabin outside Östersund. It's not located in the middle of nowhere and it's a short drive to the store and a short walk to the lake. But I would love it even more if it were located closer to the mountains. I recently visited a friends cabin and his dad drew and built his own house.. and it was DIVINE. SO damn cosy and unique. The architecture was beautiful and you had a view over the ÅRE mountains and a big lake from there. So silent... you didn't hear any noise at all. Peaceful. Ofc he had a warm fireplace to keep us warm in the cold too. So I took my place in the sofa and had a beer, talking about snowmobiles and weird neighbors. Haha typical northerners ^^

 

It's important to dress right if you're planning to go to someone's cabin over the weekend. Prepare yourself for cold floor, outdoors activities which requires warm proper boots and clothing and something that you're not so careful about, it might smell of smoke for days if you're going to bbq outdoors. Inside you might need to keep warm as well so bring warm wool socks, sweaters, cosy leggings, pyjamas, fleece, workout clothes (running and playing in snow etc is exhausting!) and have fun! :)

 

 

Here are some 'life saving' items, both expensive/cheap:

 

First, jacket. I prefer a long one so your butt won't be cold! Short ones are too inconvenient in the woods and when it's freezing cold outside

Sweather weather

Hi! I hope you had a wonderful weekend?

I understand if you're broke after Black Friday ;p Lucky for me I couldn't shop a thing since I'm getting my money on Monday. Pwew. Otherwise it would have been mad.. I saw all the sale signs but never lost my focus. Keep on walking... don't look haha. I brought my sweaters and stayed at my mums place the whole weekend instead. We drank so much tea.. 

 

 

Anyway, I found two new (to me) websites with some really good sweaters/tops for the wishlist to santa.. aka myself. I am so happy to have this blog and the interest is growing steadily. I hope you think I am OK so far :) I've found so much I just want to renew my closet almost completely.

 

The websites are flirty Chiquelle.se and young cool Bershka.com!

 

Here are my favorites, maybe you'll find yours?

Todays find from MQ torsdag 16 november

 

Ah... Winter... isn't lovely? Cold, white, magical. I look forward to the season, but also because I live in the north now and there are so much more to like about winter here. Snow has finally fallen and stayed in Östersund.

 

Soon it's weekend and I hope you had a good week so far? I became a makeup model this week and changed my brunette color to caramel ombre. Change is good sometimes! 

 

I found some nice finds from MQ.se today. I don't shop here very often but when I do I always find something special <3

(I apologize for the blury pictures, I took them from the webside and I don't understand why they can't have a good mini image as well as the enlarged one?)

Don't be 'dull', add something extra

 

Yaaawn...

Winter fatigue .... New week, new energy?

I often feel tired h*ll on Mondays and not just the morning, the whole day. But at the same time there is something very promising on Mondays. A new start.

I searched through the ladies section at hm.com/se and I was pleasantly surprised by how unique some garments are and not basic at all. Do you want to build volume and play with shapes and materials? Go ahead. There are plenty of clothes out there waiting to boost your wow-feeling. Why most garments are black or white do not surprise me. Some of us need to feel a bit safe underneath the giant balloon sleeves ;)
