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!)
