Stockholm: shop

On this trip, by the time we got to Stockholm, I was out of shopping steam (not to mention out of money!) So I didn't buy any clothing except a sweater from Topshop, but we had to check out all the Swedish standards, like Acne, Fifth Avenue Shoe Repair, Filippa K, Whyred, etc.

My red tights & shoes! I definitely got some looks for these.

This is a collection of the things I picked up in Stockholm (minus sweater) I could barely contain myself at the Iris Hantverk store- I really have a thing for their brushes. Clockwise: My Kosta Boda skull candle holder, Iris Hantverk cross trivet, Dala horse from the gift shop in Skansen*, Iittala votive holders, Skona Hem, and Iris Hantverk cake tester and brushes, all on a Almedahls Herring tea towel.

*If you happen to visit Skansen, the gift shop houses many Swedish classic designs, has a great selection of tools, Iris Hantverk brushes, woven rugs, tons of Dala horses, pottery, etc, and at the best prices. Any of the large department stores are also a great place to look for classic Swedish designs.

dfty- I know- I got fed up and just wore a pair of red repetto's. I would have preferred something with a heel, like an ankle boot.

muus- I was going to do it today, but I left my makeup bag at my parents during christmas :/
