One of my favorites is of course the world known Net-a-Porter. I would buy something from their web page every day If I could. Another swedish one is Kotyr that never disappoints me and always has clothes that stand out through their originality, quality and uniqueness. They carry very interesting brands, many of which are swedish and I truly enjoy it. And they can ship very fast if necessary! (Remember when I was going to the wedding in Megève, pregnant, and suddenly had no inspiration whatsoever about what to wear?) I bought a dress from them and explained the situation and they actually had it delivered to my work the next day. I mean, talk about service. The dress was a dream and I felt as beautiful as ever, newly pregnant and all in THAT silk creation.)
Nathalie Schuterman is also one of my favorites and the best thing about her store is that it is well located in Stockholm, a nice walk from where I live. She always manages to tempt me with perfectly handpicked things like coats, cardigans, high heel shoes and other accessories.
But today, while I am waiting for my man to come back home after two weeks, I am having a perfectly composed Vivalto Lungo coffee with some fresh french nougat (that actually is my mum's, she got them from M's mother, but the french nougat lover I am, I stole a few). And I am looking for some new things for fall and using internet for that purpose. Trying not to spend a fortune at Kotyr, I am choosing some beautiful new dresses for the autumn and winter time.
I have a passion for warmer material on dresses during this time and THIS one just has to be mine. The same with THIS stunning, beautiful dress that is sober yet sexy and feminine in some kind of way. I've had a crush on THIS brand since it started and by now, I have a couple of their dresses and they all fit perfectly, no matter what occasion I wear them for. I also had them all through my pregnancy which was great. (Look HERE and HERE and you'll see).
I would also like to get THIS stylish coat that would fit just as well as an winter dress with high, knee boots on. I like how the black wool look so fashionable with a little bit of bare skin.
I have three more dresses that probably are going to be mine ... We'll see how long I have to wait and how tempted I am.
But now you know. Travels, internet and some favorite stores combined with the more main stream brands where we all buy from. It is all about how you combine them, how personal you dare to be and how good you know your own body and what you look the best in. Knowledge about materials, designs, sewing and the small details that make all the difference in a garment - also helps create a personal, chic and elegant style that is yours.
So, well ... I am just a click away now from owning some really nice dresses.
