I’m back from Stockholm alive and with no intentions to disappear from the blogosphere (as the trend might be at the moment). The discounts were unbelievable and I have literally 6 huge bags stuffed with new clothes! Almost everything was -75 % off so you can imagine how crazy it was. I think I went a little too deep into the discount craze but at least I now have new clothes and shoes for next year (well, at least until the next discount season). I mainly went for the Swedish fashion and the color black made a return to my closet for this fall. I will introduce more of my findings in later posts.
While in Stockholm and shopping, we went to see Europride 2008. Last year it was just Stockholm Pride but this year all of Europe was celebrating in Stockholm. I wore one of my purchases, cropped grandpa pants with a paper bag waist. I had them on pretty much every day after getting them, that’s how comfortable they are.

As for the trends in Stockholm, a lot of girls wore really skimpy dresses that were a bit too short for my taste. Also huge shirts with rolled sleeves and without any tights or leggings were a big hit. Everyone was super tanned and so summery. I also made an observation that all the cool hipster kids tend to like good music, as the club Debaser was full of them on Saturday night. In fact, it must be one of the best indie clubs I have ever been in. Unfortunately I was not able to take my camera in my purse, so there are no shots of the party outfit, sorry.After this mini holiday its time to get back to work, although it seems that while I was gone my work laptop crashed. I hope that all the precious photos that I had on it are not gone with the wind…
P.S. Awhile back I was asked by the Fashion Spot community to give a little interview about my style and provide some outfit pics for the “What are you wearing today” section. I took me like two months to actually act on the request and now the interview is finally up. I, amongst likes of Susie Bubble and Rumi, have done this, so I truly appreciate this opportunity. You can find the interview and pics here.
