like electric sparks in my heart

I've been browsing through different sites and especially net-a-porter like a crazy person waiting to be inspired, but I have to say that the stuff they're selling this autumn is irrevocably boring. the shoes are dull and uninspiring, so are the bags. they're all brown and studded or simple and black which I always thought as more of a virtue than a vice, but now I just crave something a little more interesting. 
I actually think the Swedes have done a better job than the French, Italian and American fashion gods altogether; look at the acne, minimarket and carin wester collections  for example!

all this doesn't mean that I haven't found any items to crave though....

jewelry by ACB except the feather cuff by iosselliani, dresses and atacoma wedges acne, lingerie and black bubble clutch stella mccartney, leather jacket helmut lang, orange leather gloves hugo boss, boots whyred, plaid shirt dress and black padded  computer case henrik vibskov, toe shoes comme des garcons, calculator canvas bag jeremy scott.

ALSO, the jeremy scott black-and-white piano scarf came to my mind yesterday, and now I've been searching through the whole Internet to find a pattern to make a piano scarf myself. I'm not really great at knitting but both my mom and grandmom are....I'm sensing a little xmas-present coming together!

paese che vai, usanza che trovi

photos above from afashiontale, I love that silver feather pendant. 

for the past few days I've been dreaming of a little autumn getaway to a European capital. Paris and Stockholm are the options, but I think I'll end up in Stockholm--it's closer to home and staying there would be a lot cheaper. now I just have to find someone to go with me...

I've been incredibly busy for the past few weeks because of my final exams. the hurry will be over tomorrow at around 3 PM or earlier when I finish my italian exam and hand it in.

now I'm off to study some irregular verbs and the italian congiuntivo, wish me luck!

I went to the habitare fair today and found quite a lot of inspiring things for home. didn't buy anything but got plenty of good ideas.

as you may see from the horrendous photo flow, I mostly took photographs of lamps and chairs; the two things I love looking at. the magis chair one in black (in the first photo) is an item I will surely purchase one day.

I'm looking for a cool lamp for my room and fell hard for the flat diamond-shaped lamps in the fourth photo. however the only lamp I seriously think about right now is the funny fish lamp which is probably a piece designed for children. I can't help but wonder what it would look like hanging from my ceiling though.

I fell hard for the number one item, ahhhh. I currently obsess over loose fitting, knee-length dresses. one can't have enough of those. it's so easy to get out of bed in the morning and throw on something like that with stockings and a pair of nice boots.

kan du gå som han

these babies finally came home today.
they'll be g r e a t with the whole wardrobe of mine, come rain, come shine --- with dresses, chunky scarves, cape-like coats, leather jackets.....
they just need a little bit of treatment and care before I take them out for a little walk. I've never taken really good care of my shoes, but these I intend to have for a long time.

life's been giving me sweet sweet strawberries instead of the famous lemons;
the autumn is mild and warm, the people are great, there are dozens of parties coming up, I do really well in school without even making an effort AND my dear friend from Australia is coming for a visit in december! I hope there's no end to this goodness.

kor som vältas

I can't shake the feeling that I should maybe do something radical to my hair. ever since my hairdresser completely screwed it up last spring, it hasn't been touched by a professional so it's just straight and half-long with no real cut. 
ms lanphear doesn't make me feel better at all. I don't know if I'll be able to say bye bye to my long hair bur if a radical cut can look this good....why not??

these four people and their clothing just reached the level I usually like to call perfection.

my boot problem got new dimensions today as I went to buy the boots I'd been wanting to buy for quite some time now---there were new styles in the shop, and now I simply cannot choose. on monday I'll make my move!
