And the sun will shine again



Outfit credits: Missguided maxi dress and strap heels, vintage clutch, Infinitine rings, DIY cross necklace.

So this is the night look for the same dress as in the previous post (I take "night" very seriously). My philosophy when getting dressed up is always "less is more", so I always keep the accessories to a minimum. But I still like something small, just so, you know, it doesn't look like I just put on a dress. What I'm particularly proud of in this look is how the cross neckless ends just above the cut of the dress! And another tip for this dress; if you're gonna go out in it like this, without the regular bra or something else under, you will need some sort of fashion tape or something, or your boobs will fall out.

I'm not a fan of platform heels/boots with maxi dresses or skirts. Unfortunately (or maybe not unfortunately...) most of the heels I own are platforms, since it's what I generally prefer with anything else. So when I wear a full length dress or skirt I usually end up wearing flat boots with them. But recently I've started "stocking up" on non-platform heels like these beauties, also from Missguided, that I'm wearing to this look.

And the clutch I found at a vintage store, and I had to get it because it reminds me of Vivienne Westwood (though, obviously it is not), with the heart!

Are you caught up in the light?

I was asked by Missguided to style one of their maxi dresses for both a day and a night look, and being a massive sucker for maxi dresses there was no way I could say no to that!

I personally wear maxi dresses more for day looks than night. I know a lot of people think it's too dressy, but that's all in your head, kids! Unless you have to do things were it's not actually practical, I find it to be way more comfortable than both pants, jeans, leggings or short dresses. 

A tip if you want to get this particular dress though is that because the material kinda heavy and stretchy, you might want to size down. Especially if you have a thin frame, and/or a defined waist/arched back like I do. I'm a regular UK8/EU36, and that's what I have in this dress, but I could easily have gone down to a 6, especially since it's pretty long as well, and I'm a shortie. But by god do I love it. 10/10 would recommend!

Stay tuned for the night look!

It's so hot here right now I can't even function. Can't be outside and I can't really be inside either because I obviously don't have air condition (because this is Sweden), and it's not windy so it doesn't matter that I open the windows.

But anyhow, I don't think I've worn this tee in an outfit post before? *checks* Nope. I got it a while ago at my local Beyond Retro and it's my new fav. It's so big, worn and soft! That's really how I pick out tees when vintage shopping; the most oversized and worn ones, preferably slightly sun bleached and with small holes in them!

Let's go to the beach







#nomakeup #manyfilter #umissedthemwebcamselfies #chips #noteventhattan

You know, summer in Sweden really is the best, when it's actually summer weather. I prefer being on the beach here in the south a thousand times to anywhere else on the good days. 

After having been away for such a long holiday as this recent trip to Greece was, it feels so good coming home. This is a great country to come from and live in in so many ways. 

Gonna go work on that tan now, laterZ!

New in

From top left to bottom right:

Vintage boots, LA Lakers snapback, The Body Shop pink grapefruit body butter, Maybeline Baby Lips Cherry Me, MAC matte lipstick Diva, fleemarket tiny purse, H&M heels, vintage clutch bag, Ralph Lauren cotton shirt, H&M white basic crop top, vintage backpack, fleemarket sunglasses, a-Jays headphones, silk scarf from random shop in Oia (Santorini). 

I'M HOME AGAIN! And damn it's good to be back.

These are the things I bought on my trip to Greece, along with some shopping I did today when I went to the mall to stock up on groceries. I didn't do much shopping in Greece, and for once in my life I ended up buying fewer, more expensive things. This is about 50/50 bought in Greece and bought here in Malmö.

If any of you missed it I'm in Greece at the moment and for about another week. We're currently on Ios, it's freaking hot and I'm kinda tan. I update somewhat regularly on instagram, but mostely on my second one, magdalenafromspace, that I use for photos that aren't selfies. It's kinda like my "private" instagram, but it's not actually private, if you know what I mean. So check that out if you care. Otherwise I still post selfies and shit on my regular one, but less frequently.

THESE ARE THE WESTWOODS


Just like everyone who has ever read the Nana manga I am a massive sucker for Vivienne Westwood. I adore her as a person existing in this universe, and I love her couture and shoes. To own a VW piece, ANY piece, is a dream I never thought I'd live. But now I do. I'm a label whore, what can I say. 

They smell of rubber and perfume and none of the product pictures does them justice. Absolutely beautiful. Sky-high (Zalando says 12,5cm, but that is not correct, they're 13,5) with a border-fucked-up angle to your feet, but stable and possible to walk in. Would absolutely not recommend for beginners, though. Run true to size, but almost slightly small, so size up if in doubt. And they're 50% off at Zalando right now (which is where and why I actually got them), and Solestruck also has a little discount atm. 

I love them. I love them I love them I love them.

Hi. When you read this I'm in Germany. I'm only away for the weekend. I have next week off from all sorts of work and stuff, but on next Friday I go to Greece for about 20 days. I keep forgetting to tell you that, haha. I've known about it for like half a year I think, but yeah. There'll probably be wifi somewhere and I'll have my laptop so I'm sure I won't be completely lost to you for the entire time. But vacation YAY! Gonna get so tan I'll be orange when I come back home.
