Carin Wester's Post-show drink

First we went to Carin Wester's show at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Pavilion.

Then the Post-show drink. And the boutique Aplace co-hosted the event.

The three photos above are from Rodeo Magazine.
I created this dress with candy wrappers (the chocolate Geisha).

The Look Show - Blog Competition

If I get to sit front row I will share the magic with my readers and you can count on me reporting in a new and fresh way from all angles. I definitely think the Look Magazine would benefit from having an international blogger to report on the happenings of the show.

And if I get to tell the story from the first row I can deliver for your satisfaction photos of beautiful looks coming down the runway, stunning outfits up close, and I promise there will be no blurry pictures. You will be able to sit at home and gossip about the guests and I will post Polaroids of the models, the content of the goodie-bag and many more fun things that The Look Show has to offer.

Because I'm a hard worker I will definitely report on the show both on Twitter and on the Blog and post videos. You will see me in my best and chicest outfit and there will be pictures of me mingling with the crowd. Nothing will be left out, there will be extravaganza and fashion at it's best.

I've posted two pictures of how I would look if attended the show. Now you've gotten a sense of why I deserve to be a guest at The Look Show AW11 at Westfield Stratford City, I can only hope that you make the wise decision to put me in the front row to brighten things up even more.
For readers who haven't heard, Olivia Palermo was sitting front row at the autumn 2011 show and she looked smashing and chic as always.

Odd Molly - Stockholm Fashion Week

The whole collection mostly consists of knitted dresses and shorts which are extremely cute with fringes. It was over all a very easy going and wearable collection. Not breathtaking but absolutely worth mentioning.

Odd Mollys kollektion bestod till stor del av halvgenomskinliga stickade klänningar och söta små shorts med fransar. Överlag var det en simpel uppsättning med plagg som var ganska alldagliga, men som kommer gå hem i stor utsträckning hos den breda massan.

The model and girlfriend to Sean Lennon: Charlotte Kemp Muhl is a long time favorite of mine.
Modellen och flickvänen till Sean Lennon Charlotte Kemp Muhl är en favorit sedan länge och frontar Lookbooken.
I love the pants and the top she's wearing on the cover of their Lookbook.
Jag blev direkt förälskad i byxorna och det stickade linnet hon bar på framsidan.
Really pretty Lookbook, much work has been put into it I can see. And I found a lovely poem in the beginning.
Man ser att de lagt ner otroligt mycket jobb på denna katalog, för den har inte bara vackra foton utan även en tilltalande dikt.

Stockholm Fashion Week

Ida Sjöstedt S/S 2012
Every piece in the collection is romantic and edgy, Ida Sjöstedt really knows how to create clothing for a girl's dream wardrobe. It's beyond hard choosing a favorite item from her runway show, but if I must it's the black sexy dress to the far left (picture above).

Varje plagg i Idas kollektion är romantiskt och vågat något jag beundrar och älskar på samma gång. Hon lyckas skapa en flickas drömgarderob varje gång hon visar upp en ny linje. Det är otroligt svårt att den här gången välja bland hennes genomskinliga tyger och häftiga klänningar, men om jag måste blir det klänningen längst till vänster (bild ovan).
Fifth Avenue Shoe Repair S/S 2012
When FASR creates clothing it almost gets a couture stamp, it's very extravagant nothing you would wear an ordinary business day. But it's very inspiring and daring and in that sense it's exactly what Sweden needs in it's minimalistic fashion scene.

När jag ser vad FASR skapat får det en Couture-stämpel för det är inget man skulle bära en vanlig arbetsdag. Det är väldigt extravaganta och vågade kreationer, men det är samtidigt precis vad Sveriges modescen behöver mer utav.

Fashion Week - Outfit

I have been busy haven't had time to post any photos from Fashion Week here in Stockholm, but here comes my first outfit. I'm very stressed and I've already missed one fashion show this morning at the beautiful restaurant Riche. I might be a little bit late because Carin Westers post show party last night was really happening. I need to get dressed now and then get to Berns hotel quickly for a fashion show.

A rainy sunday

I bought this green playsuit at Beyond Retro and then I cut off the legs and wrote Revolutionary Road on the back.

Jag köpte den här gröna dräkten hos Beyond Retro, byxbenen var för vida så jag klippte av dem och sedan skrev jag Revolutionary Road med svart målarfärg på ryggen.

A rainy Sunday gives you frizzy hair.
En regnig söndag gjorde att mitt hår blev okontrollerbart.
