The wardrobe project: Cloud dress

Apr 30, 2010 in Sewing and Wardrobe Project


I’m running out of clothes to include in my wardrobe project so I pretty much only do this when I have a new garment these days. I guess it doesn’t really count any more since I’m done going through my old stuff and my closet only contains things I actually use. I think I will consider the wardrobe project closed with this and just post any random outfits when I feel like it in the future.

Anyway, I made this dress a couple of days ago, and so here’s an outfit with it.

Dress: Made it myself.
Belt: Flea market.
Shoes: Flea market.
Scarf: I think flea market but don’t really remember.
Gloves: Tradera.

I’m also wearing a pair of daisy earrings that didn’t show up well in the photos. They match the dress perfectly and are from this Etsy shop.

Happy Walpurgis!

This doesn’t really count as a wardrobe project outfit since I’ve used all of these garments for other wardrobe project outfits, but I love this outfit so I photographed it anyway.

T-shirt: Gift from a friend.
Skirt: H&M I think, or Ellos.
Belt: Thrifted.
Tights: H&M.
Shoes: A shoe store outside Gallerian in Stockholm that I don’t remember the name of.
Jacket: Some catalogue like Ellos. I added all the stuff of course.
Belt: Thrifted.

Wardrobe project: Beaded dress

Apr 10, 2009 in Wardrobe Project


I took these photos because I was thinking of selling this dress. It’s one of my most beautiful dresses and definitely the most intricate one, but I had only used it once since it was just too big for me. The beading makes it close to impossible to take in without removing beads so I thought it might be time to let it go.

When I was taking these photos I noticed that it suddenly fits me perfectly, which makes me happy both because I can wear the dress and because it means I’m actually not quite as skinny as I was a couple of years ago! I don’t think I will be selling it now.

Dress: Ebay. The brand is Jack Bryant.
Tights: Gift from Lisis.
Shoes: Gift from Henrik.

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.
