Buying and wrapping gifts is one of my favorite things to do. Picking out the perfect thing for that specific person, thinking and browsing the shops and all that. Gretchen's birtday present came out pretty good and contained a bird, a book, booze and Molly Ringwald.

Paloma.








Last night we went to a show case for the fabulous Paloma Faith. (Sorry for the bad quality, I was fooling around too much.) Anyway, she was wonderful and she kicked butt.

One of my biggest dreams as a kid was to one day have a library just like to one the Beast gave to Bell in Beauty and the Beast.

Another was to be a boy (called Pepito). I would wear a sailor suit and live in 1900the century Paris. I was kinda cut off from reality as a kid.

Men jag hör fortfarande ditt namn i ljudet från bröllopsklockor.






I usually make up stories while I work. Mostly around a thing or a garment like, in this case a dress I bought yesterday for an up-comming wedding. I once read an interview with (the great) Ellen von Unwerth where she explained that she just give her models a story and then let them act freely from it. When I have a good idea, that's how I try to work too.

I love boarding school books and films of any kind (it doesn't even matter if they really suck, as long as they have uniforms and dusty old library books). I want to live in Donna Tartt's Secret history or Back home by Michelle Magorian...

Darling.


Wonderful things right now:

+ Starting school again. I'm such a nerd. And I love it.
+ This part between late summer an full out fall when you can leave the house with just a cardigan. Everything feels so hopeful like. Like anything could happen.
+ Pencil skirts and big black bows. Everything shiny and satin.
+ My camera. Always.
+ Kristofer getting his hair cut again. Stroking the back of his neck is like stroking a kitten.

Karusell.










It's really been a great summer, could be it's been the best one yet. I try to surround myself with people who are up for any adventure, I don't like the stalemate that is reality.

The weather here in Sweden is getting a little colder and more grimy, because fall came today. It's still warm outside but moist and rainy like. So all I can think about is what I want to look like this fall, and what inspires that style image. It's a kind of 50's dominatrix mixed with innocent french spy kinda look, with a black base, lots of different materials, studs and super tight stuff. This I need to complement my wardrobe(and soon):

+ a pair of thigh high boots, preferably black suede (Karen Millen!) with a round toe.
+ tights in satin or something of the sort. All I know is they should be slick and shiny.
+ a pair of boots with a rough rubber sole and hook and eye lacing. I already found them, at work.
+ a good 50's trench, black of course.
+ a versatile pencil skirt, I'm considering this one .
+ berets in black, white and some odd colours.

The best thing about fall is the clothes. And reading, drinking tea and letting the whole day pass by in muted reds and yellows outside your window. Photographing the morning frost, taking long walks and feeling your lungs turn inside out from the freezing fucking cold. The feel of your loved ones hands on your icy cheeks when you come home in the evening. And the clothes, right?

Hugga i sten.













I'm back. These are some photos of our first day on vacation. We took our bicycles and went for a ride out to an old limestone quarry. It was real pretty and barren, I love everything abandoned and decaying, don't you?

I'm going on a vacation now people, and there wont be any internet. I'm gonna swim, lie in the sun, read and write and most importantly: photograph everything I see. Can't wait.

See you in a week babes.
