I saw Gunilla Pontén on the bus the other day. She’s a designer, my favourite 50s and 60s fashion model, and an all around glamourous person. She looked amazing in a black sequined beret, her signature dark bob and plum lipstick and a beautiful coat.

She was (and is I’d say) a bit of a fashion rebel and one of her designs became famous after she wore it to some kind of royal occasion in the 50s where it was thought to be inappropriate (it became a stamp a while ago).

I was too starstruck to say anything on the bus but it inspired me to post some scans from this issue of Veckorevyn, which contains an article about Gunilla’s clothes and home, and it’s my favourite article in all my vintage magazines.

Mirit Weinstock

I took these photos last summer I think, as a part of a project by fashion designer Mirit Weinstock. She sent out her clothes to girls all over the world to model, and now it’s all presented on her website, www.miritweinstock.com.

I think it’s a great idea, both because you get to see the clothes modeled on “real” people, and you get to see people actually incorporating the clothes into their own personal style. You can see my page here.

Wardrobe project: green skirt

Jan 26, 2009 in Wardrobe Project

I haven’t taken any wardrobe project photos all winter because it has been too dark. The days are getting brighter now though and I got out of school before noon today and it was fairly bright by the kitchen window, so I thought I’d use the opportunity.

Skirt: Vivien of Holloway. I love this skirt and highly recommend it! The people at Vivien of Holloway were really nice when my package got lost in the mail as well and sent me a replacement. Unfortunately they didn’t have any left in XS for the replacement so I had to get an S and take it in a bit, but I think this might be even better because I love the length.

Shirt: Thrifted.

Tights: H&M.

Shoes: A shoe store outside Gallerian in Stockholm, I don’t remember the name.
