White innocent items from H&M is the theme today.
I feel like I could need an angel for luck right now. Life has its ups and downs.
I need light now, light and prosperity.
White is associated with light, goodness, innocence, purity, and virginity.
It is considered to be the color of perfection. White means safety, purity, and cleanliness.
As opposed to black, white usually has a positive connotation.
White can represent a successful beginning.

I love them, don't you? It's and old classic and yet so modern. If Madonna would be a fashion item, she could be a sweatshirt haha, old but classic and always there, every season, to be loved and questioned. Is it really a fashion piece? Is it not only for exercise or cosy sundays at home? Or a really nice friend during autumn walks?
I like the sweats a lot, but wearing it always seem to feel a bit odd for 'my age'. Sweatshirts are for sportspeople or youngsters? What to do think? It's comfy ofc and it doesn't make you look or feel uncomfortable.
I searched for sexy stockings on Asos for my ww2 army suit/uniform for the 8th international burlesque festival in Stockholm in a few weeks and I found some desirable sweats on sale and some not. Here are my pics:
ASOS - ON SALE:
Adolescent Clothing – Don't be a dick – Sweatshirt

I went outside for a short walk and I adore the colors on the leaves now. Everything is more colorful,
like they know that winter and their death is coming so they shine and pop with color one last time.
I always loved the brand VILA. I remembered the brand by looking at old pictures and the storm outside
and I got the idea of today's theme.
44,99 € 35,95 €
69,99 € 55,95 €
129,99 € 103,95 €
Follow the leaves, make one last shout out and shine with color before everything turn grey...
Oh, this was interesting too! https://www.bustle.com/articles/113060-6-weird-things-that-happen-to-your-body-and-mind-when-autumn-arrives
That's why I call myself a fashion detective. I search the web A LOT!
It started as a job when I had to find and identify scientists online for a marketing campaign and now it's easier since it's dead things. Not people. Haha. But I guess I could be a real detective/personal investigator too. I don't think it's for me though. Sometimes I have a goal, a site to visit. Sometimes I stumble upon some pieces and it surprises me that if you just look everywhere and have an open mind, you can find some rare goodies.
Bonprix is a brand I heard of because of their under/swimwear for girls with bigger 'assets' and it's cheaper than Twilfit for example. When I was done shopping for my 'girls' I saw this cute dress and so the scrolling began. Here are my results! Divided into everyday wear and night/partywear. It's cheap and affordable too!
P.S I took these items from the Swedish Bonprix, but there are several online (?) stores in Europe so see if you have it in your country.
Dress, 399 SEK
Skirt in leather immitation, (polyester), 249 SEK
Denim blouse, 299 SEK
Striped leggings, 229 SEK
Dress with patterns, 299 SEK
Short sleeved blouse, 199 SEK
Jacket/blazer, 399 SEK
Knitted sweater with laces, 299 SEK
And some party wear to brighten it up a bit, normal clothing is sometimes getting me down haha, I'm much more of a glitz and glam girl within
Sequin dress, 499 SEK
Metallic dress, 399 SEK
Dress with rivets, 449 SEK
Evening dress, 499 SEK
And here is a Tuesday tune for you. Have a nice afternoon!
"It was on a Tuesday afternoon
Josie was one of those easy girls who had wide eyes
And she was drawn in by the incense at the mission room bar
You know, once she got in the boys attacked her like o movie star
And as soon as she got nervous she was drinkin' and smokin'
Like a lover caught chokin' on another man bone
But clicking her heels wouldn't get her home
She called ma laughin' from a pay phone
On this Tuesday afternoon
Josie got caught in the mission room
Where the man are crazy and the women are too
Before you know it's Wednesday in the afternoon"
Just don't party on a weekday.. ;)

I first noticed the brand when I was searching for new cool accessories. I fell in love, I wanted more and more, it became an addiction searching, looking, dreaming, wanted to try them all! Dressing up in these pieces I would feel like a fierce fairy, which is unexpected but very awesome.
I have never been an accessory-liking girl! I barely wear earrings. No rings, no bracers... nothing. Sometimes for work or a party, sure. So to be able to fall this hard for a brand with flower and romance theme... it's strange. I am attracted to the colors and themes of my childhood. The girly girl I was back then. More flowers and colors I say, for the future!
Go BIG or go home. I think accessories are here, on us, to be seen!

It's getting very hard not to buy at least five of these...!!! My wallet is not big enough, bu huuu... Story of my life ^^ haha I want to earn a big paycheck and spend some on fashion NOW!
Zara is one of my favorite stores and I wish we had one in Östersund. I think the women need it, to bring out the extra vavavoom in their daily life.
Enjoy the clothes and let others see them too!
Day: Tuesday, Aug 21
Mood: Autumn feelings (happy and sad), poor as f*ck xD
Weekly goal: Sell some, buy some! Recycle clothes.
I am happy to see so many gorgeous outfits for "plus size" women on DEB (Depshops). It's my first visit ever and it made me happy and excited. See for yourself! These pieces empowers women no matter what size the brand say you are. You look fierce and ready to seduce the world.
The models are so beautiful too! <3
Have a lovely week and happy shopping!

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
DOLCE & GABBANA
Give me spring and bare ground to walk on!
Sweet shoe shopping dreams...
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...

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."

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.
Shaping jeans, 499 SEK
Dress, 209 SEK (on sale)
Dress, 279 SEK (on sale)
Pants, 349 SEK
Was £26.00 Now £15.00
Was £28.00 Now £15.00
Blazer £40.00 , Relaxed trousers 30.00
These models look fierce AF! :D powerful, confident, beautiful, sexy women. But you should feel beautiful no matter what size you have. I'll work on my confidence too. At least we can try to be body shaming haters together.
Denim, jeans, the old loyal´s... we all wear them, own them, love them, cant live without them, expand them and fit in.
The perfect jeans. jeans jacket, jeans shirt.. The denim color, raw fabric, the smell... It's popular. It's staying. It's history and will probably be worn for at least some years more to come. Below is a runway photo from NY for the 2018 denim trend.
So lets begin the browsing and finding!

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!
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.
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.

What do you think about Uniqlo?
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.

Time for tea and a facial night mask. Have a wonderful Friday!
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 ;)
