BRIGHT



After a nice lunch with K, a stop by the cake gallery for some sweets and then for some other kinds of sweets from the Minna Parikka boutique I ment to spend the rest of the day at home doing some organizing and cleaning up aswell as taking care of some job related things that has been on the agenda forever.

But, that's a bit hard to do in my new flat, since the light that comes in from the window in the middle of the day is very bright and beautiful. I find it hard to concentrate on anything specific (this is of course only due to my flat and has nothing to do with the fact that I maybe, perhaps, might be a little un-organized from time to time). Since the light is too bright for sitting by the computer and it would be a shame to pull down the cutrains I ended up browsing through some old stuff in my drawers - photos and cards and small notes from everywhere, after which I went out for a nice walk in the autumn like weather (as it would also be a shame to sit inside alone in a dress this nice too, wouldn't it?)

And since the dress is very nice indeed I'll trhow in some more pics of it.
And of the nice light.
Very bright, as you can see.



Dress - Trashy Diva
(another nice item recently picked up from the post)

Lovely pictures! It's beautiful how the light stops the motion of the skirt for a second.
(a very nice dress, too)

Is there a Minna Parikka-store where you live? She's my all time-favourite shoedesigner. Although, her gorgeous pairs continues to be on my wishinglist...

I love the flower. I'm totally the same. I always have the best of intentions but I love lying around in the afternoon sunshine.

Trashy Diva is the greatest.

Vackra bilder på dig. De känns lite mystiska fast på ett fint sätt.
Självklart ska man visa upp en sån där fin klänning och inte bara sitta inne i den. :) Ha en härlig dag!

Stunning dress. I myself am such a "vampire" that I stay often in, even if there is a nice sunshine. Just draw the curtains and hide in the dark :)

Miriam Parkman : Yes, there is a quite recently opened MP-store, it's her own with only her stuff, I think that's its a one of a kind so far.

Fröken Lila : they hstil have the halterneck Trixie dress on discount I think so go get it :)

Alice : yes I'll get back to you!

Inspire the starling : glad you like it :)

Mrs.Munster : Living like a vampire is cooler than beeing a lazy bohemic slob :P

Beautiful, beautiful dress! And you absolutely can not sit at the computer in the middle of that bright lihjt, it's very bad for your eyes, don't you know. ;p And walking is, of course, very important!

Miss Karen said...

Anna said...

Hi!
How long did it take to get the dress from Trashy Diva and did you have to pay customs?

the freelancer's fashionblog said...

Anna : My dresses arrived straight home to me within two weeks.

Hello, sorry I haven't commented in a while, looks like I've missed plenty!
This dress is gorgeous on you, I have been tossing up getting this print so it's lovely to see it worn so well.
Flower in your hair is a beautiful detail.
