Flamingo hat: H&M Unicef collection
Vintage 50's dress: Dear Golden
Vintage silver owl brooch: Birthday present from Jonna

I found this hat at H&M about a month ago and thought it was marvelous! It also had a matching dress, but since I'm not 10, it wouldn't fit me. Too bad! They had about 4-5 different fun hats to choose from and since it also was a collaboration with Unicef, some of the money went to charity. Well, the hat followed me home and I'm keeping it in my collection of masquerade clothes!

This week I have been relaxing and taking it slow in the sofa. Sometimes you just need that time to unwind so that you can come back with more energy then before! I'm very good at planning to much stuff into my days and agreeing to everything I think sounds fun. If I don't have a project going on I become very restless..That's why it is so important for me to sometimes slow things down. Some really boring time in the sofa will give you the energy you need for all the fun projects you can do!

This weekend I'm working but hopefully I will be able to take a turn through IKEA and buy that bedframe I've been wanting for so long! So when I'm busy at work, take som time, relax and don't be afraid of being boring for a little while!

Ps! Did you know that the awesome vintage shop Dear Golden is having a 25% off Holiday sale right now? All that prettyness i's killing me!

New design!

Lipstick: Chanel, "Monte carlo"                                   
Dress: Milk teeths
Hello ladies and gents!

Right now I'm just talking it easy and trying to recuperate after pulling out my wisdom tooth yesterday. I had a small inflammation that wasn't going to get solved if I didn't remove the tooth. So scary! Well, I pumped myself up with a white-chocolate chip cookie at work (since I knew I wouldn't be able to eat anything for a couple of hours after) and Erik followed me for moral support. He's not so good at being supportive though, mostly he just tell's me to toughen up. But I thought I was tough, just a little scared..

This made me think of my love of vintage. There are so many thing's I think was more beautiful before and so many things I would like to have seen and experienced! And my dentist has got this beautiful old dentist chair in her waiting room. It's very pretty and elegant but at the same time I can't imagine that vintage-dentistry was the same! So, I'm very happy over how far dentistry has come! In the beginning of the 20th century I would have been very very drunk to be able to do this and then I probably would have gotten an infection from the unclean tools. And the tools would have been a knife and pliers. Not so nice! So I love many thing's vintage but I'm also happy to have some modernity in my life. 
And when my teeth get's better I'm going to sip a wonderful cup of tea from one of my vintage cup's while having pin curls in my hair and wearing a Japanese 70's blouse with a 50's cardigan. 
Cause even though I'm happy over the progress medicines made, I just can't stop loving my vintage!

(Ps! Tomorrow I'm going to our capitol Stockholm, check me out on Instagram, where my name is simonastreet, to see what I'm up to!)  

Let me show you a part of my hometown in a 60's fashion!

Outfit details:
orange, purple and pink silk scarf: Birthday present from Malin
small black cat earrings: Faz Jewelery
lipstick: Chanel, "Monte carlo"
vintage multi coloured 60's mods coat: Milk teeths
vintage Japanese 70's pussy bow blouse: Standard Vintage
nailpolish: Essie, "Chinchilly"
black lace miniskirt: H&M

These pictures were taken at the "The house of music" in Uppsala. It's a concert hall in the middle of the city that was very debated when it was planned and built. Some people thought that the modern architecture would stick out as a soar thumb in between the older buildings, others thought that the proximity to Stockholm made this building useless and some thought that the building was a great way of growing Uppsala's city center. I didn't really care about this debate and I do like the building, mostly for it's amazing view over some of Uppsala's highlights like the castle and the old cathedral. But as always we are a bit moderate in Sweden, if it was up to me, the exterior (who is now light grey and black) would make as much of a statement as the interior. Isn't the red colored escalator and floors fun?    

Also, just had to show you this amazing coat and super cute pussy bow blouse! These two pieces just goes together perfectly and I've been thinking about shooting them both for a while. The coat is actually one of my birthday presents from Erik that he bought (through me) from the lovely Ashley at Milk teeths of course! I first saw this coat on her blog (where she styled it with mustard yellow stockings, very cute!) and I couldn't believe that it was for sale. So I quickly sent Ashley a message to reserve it and after showing it to Erik it was mine. Well, it is actually a little bit too cold to wear it right now but with a cozy cardigan underneath I braved the cold and managed to take a twirl around town in it yesterday! 
The blouse is from one of my new favourite shop's on Etsy: Standard Vintage! And I am a little bit hesitant to share it with you since I don't want to miss out on all the beautiful pieces myself. But I can't keep a good shop to myself, cuz' there's nothing as fun as sharing and this shop is really great, so go and check it out!

And, thought I share a bonus picture of me just hanging out at "the house of music"!

Woah, I've been a bad blogger, I know. Well so much has been going on it's crazy! 
Well, I celebrated my 25th birthday last friday and let's just say it will take some time until I plan a party again. It was so much hard work but I hope everyone enjoyed the party! First I had a dinner with some of my closest friends and then we headed over to the club. During the dinner I couldn't really relax so I actually had the most fun at the club. One amazing thing about the club is that I've started a soul club called "Four get overexcited" together with my boyfriend and two friends! So, my birthday party was actually also the premier of the club, and it went so well! Everyone complimented us on the music and our two dj's (Lady Midnight and Karl Marthon) who are big soul collectors and also good friends loved the vibe and Lady Midnight even promised to come back and play again, and he is quite hardcore in to his stuff so even though we are friends I know he would tell me if he weren't happy with the evening. 
This was amazing and I would like to thank them and everyone who came! Thank you so much! 

I also got some sweet presents that I will share on the blog when I come around to it! And off course I will post some pictures, even though I was a bad photographer who mostly danced and hung out with my lovely friends.

Well babes, otherwise I'm working my ass off and trying to come back on the creative train. This picture was actually taken at the wonderful hotel L'hermitage in La Baule and I can fell that my french nerve is tingling  Maybe I will have to go back soon. And, by the way, thank you soo much for your wonderful comments! It really warms my heart to hear from you and read what you're opinions are on different topics!

Lot's of love!
