Happy easter to you and your family stina! I just love the pictures fr.o.m. Barcelona, makes real spring feels closer! I do envy the elegance the three of you have. Wow! So sensual and feminine but still strong and powerful! And suggestions for how to bring that into someones life, style? I mean you all have it despite what u are wearing. Fascinating!!!
Thank you so much. The taste is as stated below, different but I like it!
I found your blog a few weeks ago. I think it's interesting and you take very good photos. Also your lifestyle must be a factor that attracts a lot of readers, something like "Downton Abbey". Everybody would like such a life. Still I'm mostly interested in the fashionista-aspect of your blog and I must admit that I was initially delighted to be able to look at your outfits. But the more I look, the more disappointed I get. You're actually pretty repetitive, with the same hair almost all the time and with the cashmere and high-heeled mantras. Don't be offended, but with your means, you could dress like a godess, while you often go for the "tantiga" Greta, Rodebjer or By Malina. The same about the Barcelona dress from Malene Birger. I saw it in the store and it looks so cheep and un-stylish that I wouldn't even bother to look at it. The thin textile and chunky zipper are not a stylistic clash but simply lack a classy touch. I expect to be really scolded at and criticised by your big fans, who never let anybody to raise a word of criticism against you, but still I wonder what you yourself would say. I don't intend to be malicious or hurt anybody, but I sometimes wonder why a person with such a great feeling for style and the ability and means to dress well, sometimes just goes ahead and dresses like somebody much older. Do you ever find your outfits in any way dissatisfactory, let's say, "the day after"...? Stella
Hello! As Stina perfectly replied, styling for her is just one aesthetic means of expression in life.She has many others like photography, decoration, fashion edition , etc.I think- my humble opinion-that she never intended or intends to look like an icone or a movie star (btw , it is BRIGITTE Bardot and not "briget").She does not want to copy someone,or to mimic someone, even iconic.She just expresses herself having considered all the options and constraints of her present-day everday life.She has two babies now.How can anyone with two young kids wear long hair , high heels, fashionista clothes the wholelde day as they used to be before? It seems that has been forgotten.Long hair with kids means constant bun/ponytail.In short. ...With all the parameters of her new life taken into consideration, Stina does a fantastic job: we may not like the day outfit but at least she gives us some options and ideas to combine it . Thank youStina!Cath
Don't be offended, but... Oh my that anonymous reader is not one of us sisters holding each others back. Just saying. Anyway, that was not the reason why I wanted to leave a comment here. My purpose was to give you positive feedback, you have a lovely and stylish blog, and your pictures are gorgeous. I have been reading you blog for some time now and me and my friend got inspired by you, and we have now started to tell our story in our own blog! The pictures we take are not in the high standards as yours, yet, but we will learn and improve. Thank you for the inspiration and happy Easter!
That's amazing! I'll check it out Congrats to you!
Hello Stina,I agree with the above comment.You are a good looking lady with the means to set your own style. I think you focus too much on labels that women of your status 'should' wear. Have you considered wearing more creative up and coming labels(there is a whole section in Liberty London of these new designers for example)You would look even more stunning and as you are very much your own person ,with strong opinions ,I feel this style would go with your vibrant personality.I really loved your hair in the picture straight after Alexis was born.Why don't you try that more natural look and wait until you are older to go for the style you have now.It's a very mature look and makes you look older than you are. In fact your mother has a fun cut and colour.I too do not want you to be offended by this comment I just wanted to say this to you as you could look more Brit Ekland/Briget Bardot rather than the May West look.Please take this as a compliment to you and your lovely ways.Best wishes.
Dear Stella and Anonymous.Thank you for these constructive comments.1. I'm a stay at home mother and have so been the last three years. Which means, jeans and cashmere is my main clothes for everyday life. It needs to be practical.2. So many women have long hair and looks amazing in it. I've chosen to do something different and LOVE my shorter hair. From a face/aesthetic perspective it fits my oval face much better. If I still would have had long hair, I would have it in a pony tail or bun nevertheless since I have two very small children and even with my short page, it's a problem since they drag it. I actually hated my long hair and it's my best decision ever to cut it. If I had the energy, I would maybe blow dry it more often, but seriously - you don't have two small children of your own right?3. Remember, I'm a very practical and realistic person. I wouldn't wear anything if it doesn't feel good, is practical yet nice looking and a little edgy.4. I seldom wear byMalina (except for parties where I need a long dress. I have one velvet suit from them, but that one is really 70's rock'nr oll sexy so I love it).5. Last time I wore a Greta dress was last summer (a long leopard one when i was high pregnant) and maybe you don't understand them, but they are amazing. They let your true beauty shine trough. It's so simple, therefor you look like a natural beauty and the dress don't steel the attention. It goes with you. I love them.6. If you think I dress like an old lady, that's totally up to you. I travel a lot and don't see so many well dressed young women in my age which dress much more vivid yet with elegance. In stockholm everyone looks like small Gina Tricot women, careless of age with black leggings, a top or shirt and a leather jacket and Michael Kors bag or MJ. I could never. I get allergic reactions from it. It's to un personal, too clonal. Often with long, beautiful blond hair but it's not for me.I would call my way of dressing chic/effortless/international and hopefully - personal. I don't dress to look young, I look quite young anyhow - I dress as a way of expression. But yet, I can't wear exactly what I want since I most of my time, have two small boys also along with me.
7. I don't know all the young designers at Liberty, but often wear the new Swedish designers or let's say Scandinavian ones. Sometimes I feel they are to "safe and boring" in their collections but their base things are nice. I would love to walk around as a Streetstyle fashion girl all day long - but that's not my truth these days. When the boys are older, maybe.8. About the byMalene Birger dress - it's great quality for that price. BMB is known to sometimes have less nice quality, especially when it's pearls or details added but I partied a whole night with mine and it felt and looked lovely. Talking about quality, the quality in average on items are often not that high. My last Chanel bag broke after one week and I had to leave it in at the Chanel store to mend it. It sort of says it all. Normally you get what you pay for, but not always. My friend new Birkin stained which is crazy and such a flaw. Anyhow.9. I tink my style is sometimes boring, sometimes I regret wearing something but mostly - I just try to dress cool, nice, personal but in the same time practical and fun, so it's suits my life.10. Last three years I have maybe worn about 25% of my closet. But since I get drowled on, have food on, and some fabrics don't like a little koala on the hip most of the time. They have to stay there for other occasions then my mother - life.If you look in my label - http://awomanalifeablog.blogspot.se/search/label/Walking%20in%20the%20city I wouldn't say it's boring? Or actually that view is totally up to each one of you to make up your own mind. But there are lots of fashion girls out there with more young-swedish way of dressing which might fit you better. I want to stand for something different and don't aim for anything else.Thank you for the comments! Always interesting!Best, stina
Dear StinaJust returning from one week in Morocco and looking at all your fantastic pictures of Barcelona with 'Les 3 Graces' ask M in French! 3 beauty in a family it's unfair!Of course I completely disagree with the previous comments.You find your own style with very often coats it's true but if these ladies had looked at your blig where in ZH with mini skirt, fur vesrwithout sleeves etc they will nit say this kind of not honnest things. You have a style , classic but very fashion your hair is exactly suiting you and I dont understand their comments.You capt the colours that are fasionable each season for ex yellow now, rose this winter etc . Sneakers, slims, etc etc you are simply perfect . You found your style. You like some labels and why not? More of all you mix perfectly colours togeher.Happy Easter StinaHugs. Uta
Thank you Dear Uta!It's very kind and I'm beyond happy to have you back! I love Morocco, how did you like it?Big hug, stina
Nr 6: should be - I DO see many well dress ...
Dear Stina I am back and I sent you a long comment about what I read once more not sure it has left!I will write again if notHugs. Uta
Ok thanks Stina. I wrote before reading your own comments which were not yet on blog.And it resumed exactly what I said and think of your fantastic style. Who is dressed like this?From my side I dont know someone with such a good taste. (Apart me may be......!!!! I am joking)But a little bit of fun for Easter is a good idea no? Uta
Thank you again! We should take great pride of being women who CARES!!!! I'm sure I would stare at you with fascination if I meet you one the streets! Your dressing is probably impeccable!Big hug, stina
I love your style dear stina. It is classic, elegant but still with a twist (like the yellow coat w lace and the shoes).
Thank you! That's exactly what I am for!!
That yellow coat is just divine! What an amazing colour and lace detail. Along with your orange Max Mara that´s my favourite of all your coats. Not to mention the shoes... I wish I could wear such heels myself, but unfortunattley my feet don´t approve.Your way of being a beautiful woman inside and out inspire me every day.
Dear faithful Åsa! Thank you! I love the coat, it's from Moschino and it was a passionate crush for sure. No hesitation, just pure need.The shoes are 10cm, and that's actually the most perfect heel size of them all. I run around with these without a problem! Always look for 10cm when it comes to shoes!Hug, stina
That coat is simply beautiful, so happy and fresh! This look is so chic and elegant, yet very comfortable looking, I love it :-)
Love it too! Thank you!
The shoes are lovely, but do you have them in both brown and black? Laila
YES!!! Couldn't resist! Bought them in BCN. Blink
