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

Tuesday, November 13, 2012











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
high heeled black suede shoes: Din Sko

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"!

  1. You are just waaay to cute!!!
    Isn't it sad how the exteriors of buildings sometimes are forgotten when the interior is just filled with life! That shop has so many gorgeous pieces!! (now if only I had money :/ )

    1. Thank you darling! Yes, especially in Sweden almost every new building goes in some shade of grey. It's like they (the cityplanners?) don't think that we can take colour. When I think colour is what we need in this quite cold and dark country! And yes, the shop is amazing, have to save some money myself but it's hard when you get so tempted!

  4. You are so lucky you snatched that coat up! It really is a great one. I remember seeing it on Ashley too! So cool you're from Uppsala, my friend is studying at the university there. Nice to see a bit of your town.

I will have some more posts about the city soon. Actually been thinking of shooting the wonderful old university building, (just need to find an outfit).
