Recluse in Sweden

Happy Holidays everyone! I hope everyone’s been having a happy and peaceful time. As for me I trekked my way to Sweden to spend the holidays with my family. Missed their faces terribly! AAnd its nice to be around people who have as big of as sweet tooth as me! haha I turned into the at home Chocolatier whipping together these marzipan and nougat treats..

There is so much snow and its oh so cold... its all I can do to stay warm! Couldn't have managed without this Marie-Louise scarf wrapped around my head.. with just my eyes peeping out.

Its always a pleasure to open my moms closet doors and paw through to see what treasures I can borrow for the day. Her fur coats make me smile. Wore this one with a pair of h&m suede patch leggings.

Besides trying to keep warm, Ive been trying my hand at soups, learning "Same Changes" by the Weepies on the guitar, snowboarding and of course....sewing! Cant wait to show you the newest piece!
Its a crazy one... xx Marie-Louise

Best of 2010

Before heading into the New Year I love to reflect...about everything, even blogging. This past year has been nothing less than mind boggling and so many things have happened fashion-related. I cant wait to see what 2011 brings but a little of 2010 before we make a fresh start..

Looking back I think the highlight was attending Copenhagen Fashion Week as a photographer- its an experience Ill never forget. And for everyone who follows- you've been with me for the exciting projects and interesting adventures- thanks everyone for reading along! Special thanks to my photographers xx And an given bigger thanks to those who are closest for always believing. Here's to a great 2010, an even better 2011 and.... a Sweden post since Ive become a stellar recluse! xx Marie-Louise

Garden City

6 more days till Christmas! This past weekend I spent my Sunday fervently sewing away at this cape. I hate the word cape but I love this thing. The seams are double stitched and my favorite is the leather panel in the back. Next up...Ive got some bright green fabric. Lets see what happens. xx Marie-Louise
