This bag is one of the first shopping adventures I regarded an investment. I was about 20 years old, and I saw this little Italian beauty sitting in the window of some exclusive lady-shop here in Stockholm. I was a student of course and didn’t have much money, but was working part time as a nanny. I said to myself that if this bag is still not sold by the time I’ve made enough money, destiny is telling me to buy it; regardless of the ridiculous price tag. Two or three months after, having sold some stuff from my house, and worked hard at my job, I finally had enough cash and walked into the shop to buy this beautiful red little thing. And I guess it was destiny, and maybe also the appreciation for it is high because I know how hard I worked for it, but either way it’s been my favorite bag ever since.
This silk tie is my favorite, because I think it’s pretty, and it’s YSL, and it was (almost) the cheapest thing I’ve ever bought in a second hand shop. I really love second hand stuff! You can find such treasures for almost no money at all! It’s from Myrorna Second Hand in Stockholm.
This scarf is from a random vintage shop in Stockholm I randomly walked by a few years ago. It’s my all-time favorite accessory because it’s just so pretty. Unfortunately it’s just been lying around at home in the pile with my other scarfs for ages, as up until now, when scarfs have become trendy, I’ve just not found any use for it. So this season I’ve been very happy since I’ve actually been able to use it!
