Have a great day! / Petra

I have visited some very inspiring vintage shops, boutiques and markets. I really loved L.A and could easily picture myself living there.
Back in Stockholm - I am setting up my online vintage shop. I just took a break from my job as a freelance journalist, so that I have the time to set up everything just the way I want it to be.
I am really excited and it´s a dream come true!!
I will bring my blog back to life again as I have missed blogging a lot.

I love wearing roses in the summer. This beautiful 50's skirt is one of a kind. It's made out of silk and has gigantic deeply pink roses stiched to it. It's made in Firenze, one of my favourite places in Italy. Even the label is beautiful in itself.
The lady I bought it from had won at an auction in Paris. Apparently someone had left it in the drycleaners over 30 years ago and never picked it up. The dry cleaner finally donated it to a Parisian auction house. It feels almost new, even though it´s 60 years old. I love when you have the privilege to know the story of a vintage item. It makes it even more special. A vintage fairytale.

I've been on the hunt for fan-shaped golden earrings for a long time. I found a pair last week. And now the hunt is over...not. I want more of them - in different colours and materials. Someone has given the pair I found much love and they've been worn a lot. But you can still see the beautiful pattern showing a japanese dragon and a bonsai tree.
I remember that my mum used to have earrings like these in the 80's. I always played with them, pretending that they were folding fans for my Barbie dolls. I must admit that I still can't leave them alone. I find myself folding them back and forth all the time.
