Denim is not Dead : Stockholm

This week I travelled to Stockholm, Sweden and  I was caught completely unawares of how magnificent this city is.

I started by walking around the old town and became short of breath at the beauty of the small streets, colourful churches and the royal palace. As I continued I became increasingly aware of the change in atmosphere around me. I had walked from the clean cut, more commercial Island of Stockholm into the hipster style island of Sodermalm. It was then I discovered the meaning of cool, found the best coffee, bookshops, vintage stores and the rest. 

Of course Sweden is world famous for Acne,Cheap monday and Nudie but I wanted to take a more under-ground tour of the fashion capital so I had some friends of friends take me on adventures around the undiscovered areas. But of course, like any tourist, I ended up at the Acne Studio and bought my first set of pistols.

So denim is not dead & Stockholm certainly isn't either.

Here are some snaps of the trip::

Maria Grachvogel : London Fashion Week

This week I had the pleasure of attending one of London's most luxurious fashion show's - Maria Grachvogel. Set in the Ballroom of the iconic Savoy Hotel, we entered into extravagant classical music, gold chandeliers, mirrors and a buzz of excitement from the guests.
The lights dimmed and models emerged in all their glory with flowing silk jumsuits and gowns, incredible work of drapery, in the deepest golds and greens (my favourite colours!) The outfits were finished with intricate body chains and beige knee high boots.

Such a elegant start to Fashion week & I'm excited to see more! But off to Stockholm tomorrow so I'llbe posting from there!

Heres my photo diary of both the show & some of the guests:

Romanced by Fulham

Today being Valentines day, I went on a mission to be romanced by my local area and the beauty of London in the depths of winter.

I discovered plants crawling their way through buildings, greenery amongst the dull grey skies & an organic butcher that seduced me into paying 20 quid for a piece of meat. I obviously can't afford this kind of splurgery everyday but it was worth every penny.

Why? It's valentines day and for the first time I have been swept off my feet by the dreamy town of Fulham & it's locals. So tonight i'll try my best cooking skills & bring out the red wine for a date with my best friend.

Also, at the bottom of the page is two rascalls carrying rubbish bags, trying to 'pick up' on Valentines day. They made me smile anyway.

Being single on Valentines day has never been so much fun!

Red is for Romance

This Vespa is so cute!

Aren't they lovely. The owner (left) has a daughter living in Byron Bay working in Scuba & wishes for her never to come home because she must be truly happy. I love how the Brits Idolise Australia.

He asked me to take a picture then hid behind his laundry. Hashtag make up your mind
