What I dislike about fashion month (aka New York, London, MIlan, Paris) is that feeling of come down once a season’s worth of shows are over. It feels like I’m on a fashion high for a month with all the shows, the running around, the meetings and appointments… and now that it’s all over, it’s like there’s this big, empty void inside, I’m almost at a loss on what to do next. Back to reality I suppose until next season?
Speaking of reality, as you know, my bf has a 9-5 job so I’m always by myself in the mornings and afternoons. I’ve been in his apartment since Saturday night and I thought I’d haul my ass out for the first time this week. And what did I do? Well, this lonely housewife went shopping! I didn’t have much time because I left late in the afternoon. I bought some new patent leather desert boots from Acne (thank you for the friends and family discount, I love friends and family discounts), two sweaters, yellow and gray, from COS, and another black top from COS. I also stopped by the Whyred store. They have this varsity jacket in a really gorgeous green colour. I’m gonna try to hit more shops over the next few days. A visit to Herr Judit is long overdue.
Oh, I met up with my friend Gustav after shopping. I wanted to print some documents because my bf doesn’t have a printer at home (I know, crazy right?) so he took me to the library aka Stockholms Stadsbibliotek. After that we went to Gamla Stan, had a few drinks and before you know it, it’s time to see my bf once again at this restaurant.
Oh, just so you know, I made myself a healthy brunch yesterday — sauteed mushrooms with a wee bit of teriyaki sauce, soft-boiled egg with caviar and baby spinach leaves with olive oil, balsamic vinegar and lots of parmesan cheese.

Oh Mickey you’re so fine, you’re so fine you blow my mind, hey Mickey! Hey Mickey! It’s guys like you Mickey…
I love the D&G Dolce & Gabbana menswear x Mickey Mouse/Disney collaboration for fall 2011. I wore the sweater a few weeks ago (click HERE) and now I took my new t-shirt out, fresh from the runway, for an afternoon stroll with the bf. They should be out in the stores over the next few months.

I’m a sucker for cheap thrills. I bought this embroidered backpack during a recent trip to Marrakesh for almost nothing. I’m not really a backpack person as you know, but I am genuinely going through an ‘unconventional bag’ moment. I’m obsessed with bags that are out of the usual designer norm — bucket bags, backpacks etc. Bless whoever made the Moroccan backpack for not being consistent with the color of the straps — one of them was brown and the other was a darker shade of coffee bean.

What was meant to be a healthy, ‘let’s have a salad’ for lunch trip ended up as a “burger n’ beer” binge with a side serving of a museum visit. We went to Stockholm’s Moderna Museet. Click click click for more pictures.
What’s not to love about spring? Everything smells fresh, everything turns green, the flowers are starting to come out, the birds are finally chirping. Sure, it can be a bit chilly or irritatingly drizzly at times but the allure of new lives, new beginnings after bone-chilling winters is intoxicating.

I saw these stuffed animals in a stuffed basket at a store in Gamla Stan yesterday night after my supposed date night with the bf. Although they looked realistic in real life, US$80 is a tad too much to pay for sleeping beauty, don’t you think?
