MIDTOWN HEIGHTS

New York May 2017

HEY Midtown!

A place where the buildings never end nor sleep, likewise for its traffic, work, shopping and vivant life.

Work, work, work… (or at least for me).

En snabbis från jobbet! Det blev ett Midtown-maraton, vilket alltid ger mig en nostalgisk mixkänsla av hög-på-livet-och-alla-världens-möjligheter (sånt som du känner när du är 25 år i världens bästa stad och försöker kämpa dig fram i karrären), samtidigt som jag påminns av då-tidens jobbpress. Något knasigt magiskt över det hela ändå.

EVENING ACCESSORIES

Paris August 2016

WHEN fall is around the corner and sales finally over it just makes me wanna update my closet and see what newness is out there. As my boyfriend been away for weeks traveling plus most of my friends on vacation, I basically had the time to actually detox my wardrobe and put them up on Vestiaire Collective, if you’re curious you can click here to see what’s still left!!

After all that work (seriously it takes forever) I felt like I was worth a treat. I popped into Givenchy where I sooner or later found myself falling in love with two slightly more edgy evening accessories. Then I thought to myself: “It really has been ages since I pampered myself with something pretty”. About an hour later, I walked out with a smile and an elasticated pochette (love the orange strap detail as it changes your day look for evening) and a chunky gold chain richer – tada! Hope to put up an outfit with them very soon!

NEW YORK VINTAGE GUIDE

Two shopping tips in NYC if you’re looking for vintage originals.

Resurrection 217 Mott Street
New York June 2013Get that original Chanel bag you’ve missed or was too young for to get. Or why not dare some old school Versace that I personally really like this season. Everything with an edge yet fashion classic. If no shopping go and get inspired.

Ritual Vintage 377 Broome StNew York June 2013Three blocks South of Ressurection vintage you find this pearl. More real vintage in the sense of finding items from early 20’s Century. If you have a big crush on 1920’s lace dresses or 1950’s dresses this is your place. Also find Miss Bergdorf shoes that I bet you be alone with. Sale going on right now so hurry!

PARIS GUIDE

 

VOILÀ a Mini (mini) Paris guide from me to you! Think like a day or so.

Hotel Costes

239 Rue Saint Honoré

 

Always have dinner here when you arrive to Paris. If you’re looking for something very French and dressing up among fashion people this is the place to go. I truely recommend their Omelette even though it’s the cheapest on their menu it’s AMAZING. Also don’t forget to take their vanilla ice-cream.

Colette

213 Rue Saint-Honoré
paris may 2012.

Best shop ever with all the designer brand you could ask for yet fun and silly stuff that’s not too pricey but gives you just uneccessary cravings. Not only for shop get inspired.

Glou

101 Rue Vieille du Temple
paris may 2012.
Actually found this fab lunch place this go around. Very fresh and crispy with très cool servants. I recommend the burrata salad or today’s fish plate with some dry rosé.

Pink Flamingo

105 Rue Vieille du Temple
paris may 2012.

You have to go here and have pizza and drinks in their bus. It’s actually located next to Glou – so why no do two in one?

Ladurée

75 Avenue des Champs-Elysées
PARIS

Paris oldest macaroon maker. Their original shop is located on Champes de Lycée and I strongly recommend you go. My favorite cake is frambois passion with of course some tea.

Café de Flore

172 Boulevard Saint-Germain

Karl Lagerfeld’s favorite café. Do I have to say more? Very old school traditional French cafe/bistro that everyone needs to visit. Yet overpriced but could be fun to see.

Jardin du Luxembourg

Amazing park. Romantic. Romantic. Romantic. Come here with a book and sit under a tree. Read for each other, feed each other with macaroons. Or just talk stroll through the never ending paradise. Why not a picnic with friends? A must.

Free’p’Star

8 Rue St Croix la Bretonnerie
PARISBEST vintage shop. If you find something don’t hesitate getting it. Why? Because it will for sure be gone next time you check. The turn over is crazy. People shop like it’s there lunch. Why? It’s cheap and so good.

Vintage Bar
16 Rue de la Verrerie paris may 2012.

If this picture is not giving you Chanel cravings I dont know what would. This Chanel vintage mania. Check it out if you’re looking for a catch!

Pierre Cadiot Bijoux

Rue des Archives (one block North from Rue St Croix de la Bretonnerie)

Perfect bijoux shop in Paris (no photo to show you but trust me). They have the cutest most wearable gold and silver jewerly in the world. Don’t know how I could live without them. I just have too much from here. So go go go! And they are so nice.

PERFECTION

CHECK out my latest bag from COS. I absolutely love it. Especially since I can choose to wear it as a bag/clutch! X

DANGEROUS

riviera may 2012.
TODAY I did some bad ass vintage shopping. I just couldn’t help myself! Nice – you gotta stop raping my wallet with such great vintage stores. AAAhhhh crap now I’m stuck with these two (aaamaziiing) dresses and a slightly thinner wallet (BIG crap)… maybe lucky me? X
