A Trip to Stockholm

Last week, I spent a few days with a friend sightseeing in Stockholm, Sweden. I have to admit I wasn't expecting much because I don't hear a lot of stories about travelling in Northern Europe from my friends. But Stockholm turned out to be seriously gorgeous and so comfortable.

The weather was absolutely perfect -it was cool, breezy and sunny. The weather definitely made the whole experience more comfortable and relaxing. Not to mention it made the sky and sea look especially blue for photos!

We first went to the Nobel Museum. Admittingly the exhibition was very short and there wasn't much to see. But there is a video room that plays short videos of past Nobel prize winners (mainly old interview footages.) You can sit there for hours and just watch -the videos are mostly pretty interesting. Coincidentally, we got the timing just right -we went there after 5pm on Tuesday so it was free entrance!

The next day we went to the Vasa Museum. It's basically a display of the old, sunk ship with many supporting displays of the old sailor days. It was definitely interesting to see such an old, authentic ship up close. After seeing the exhibition, we were very grateful we weren't sailors (despite our love for the nautical trend)! Afterwards we went to the Nordic Museum, which was frankly boring and not worth the visit.

Afterwards, we went to the Moderna Museet (Museum of Modern Art). The art there was actually fun and interesting to look at as it was modern and made up of artwork of a variety of medium, such as photography, sculptures and paintings. It's a nice change from looking at old paintings.

On the third day, we ventured out to see the Millesgarden, which is used to be the house of an architect. It's basically an exhibition of an amazing garden, his house and collected art pieces. I loved his garden! The fountain at the centre was absolutely gorgeous -especially with the amazing view behind it. It was so nice and relaxing to just sit there and feel the breeze!

Afterwards we went shopping, or at least we tried to. It turns out that the clothes in Stockholm were expensive, even more so than in London. We checked out NK, one of Stockholm's big department stores and were not impressed by the range of clothes or by how messy the sale was. So we ended up chilling at a park nearby, where a band was performing.

On the last day, we went to the Royal Palace, which is one of those must-see sightseeing spots. It was not a very grand palace (compared to the French or some other European ones) but it was still fun to walk in and around it.

Overall, I think it was just the weather and whole chilled out atmosphere of Stockholm that made it such a fabulous holiday! Seriously, look at the view!

"PASOK, Ansel!"

Day 2 ...spent most of it walking around the 3 great shopping streets in Milan called the Golden Triangle. The picture of the LV store is located on Via Montenapoleone, the heart of the Golden Triangle where you can find stores such as Celine, Alexander McQueen, Alberta Ferretti, Sonia Rykiel, etc.

...this one is located in La Rinascente Piazza Duomo which is a stone's throw from the LV inside the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele. I guess one can never have enough of LV that you have to have two within the same street.

Pride Parade In Toronto

Whoa! Those Canadians really know how to do a parade! Hold you horses folks! No reason to be calling PETA. Apparently, it's just a cloth on top of the horse's back. Interestingly enough, a contingent from the LVMH group followed this magnificent steed. Photo: swalk

Wilfredo in Milan

Hours upon his arrival in the Old City of Milan, Wilfredo has already sent me these pics of the LV boutique in Galleria Vittorio Emanuele next to Il Duomo. I could see the Vernis Alma in pomme and amarante peeking through the front doors. How I wish I was there with him.

Window Shopping at US Urban Outfitters Online

Last month I online window shopped the UK Urban Outfitters (-no, I didn't end up getting any of those items,) so I decided to do the same for the US site. Boy I tell you, the US UO has a way better selection of clothes at very decent prices. I'll try not to rant too much about the much cheaper prices in the States compared to the UKs.

I love this dress, especially the pink and teal-coloured ones. It's not exactly unique and it really reminds me of the early Rory Becca and Lauren Conrad designs but that's why I love it. It's simple, colourful and looks very versatile. I imagine it would be fantastic for many occasions in the summer. Plus, it's made of chiffon and looks like it's worth the 48usd price tag.

Even I think this dress is boring, but if I still had to go to school everyday, then this would be a great throwing-it-on-in-a-hurry piece. And judging from the photos, the dress provides a good canvas for the accessories to liven up the outfit if you feel like it.

I really liked this dress when I first saw the photo although now that I stare at it more, I'm liking it less. Maybe it's because the design's actually more interesting than the plain dress above. But anyhow, it looks like a fun dress to wear during daytime. And it somehow reminds me of Lauren Conrad too. Oh gosh, why does everything remind me of her?

Even though this dress is really not my style, it just looked too pretty for me not to post it. I can imagine Peyton wearing it in One Tree Hill.

Barneys Girl recently emailed me about this shirt and I love it! It's got small flowers all over the pattern but it's nice in that it doesn't look fussy. The design is clean cut and looks easy to wear. I find it so hard to find pretty blouses like this because most of the high street designs are there are either too boring or has too much detail on them. But this one is just right. I want a red one!

I've always related Urban Outfitters to graphic tees -that was one of the sources for its original success right? Anyhow, I'm a fan of most white tees that have simple or black and white designs on them and these fit the bill. I especially like the scribbled tee -it's all about the designed messiness!

I've been looking for a mid-waisted, structured mini dress for ages. There are loads of black minis out in shops now but they're usually not structured or skintight. The slight A-line silhouette this skirt has is so much more flattering.

I've been looking for simple, long necklaces in the UK Urban Outfitters and found nothing. This necklace (from US UO) is exactly what I'm looking for, and it's so affordable at 18usd (although I would probably wait for it to go on sale.)

All this imaginery shopping is making me want to go to the States just for UO!

Look what I got in the mail!

Etched in silver marker, is my blogger persona and name for an invitation from none other than the Maison in New York City. I opened the black envelope with much anticipation and was breathless when I saw the smiling Graphite pattern. The words "Upon appointment, of your leisure" rings to me like a summoning from her Majesty, the Queen, herself! If I could, no sooner would I be at the train station. Unfortunately, I am swamped and fear that I must decline. Sigh...I have not made up my mind, yet...Thank you so much, S.A

The rest of my afternoon was free... guess where I went...

and then I saw this...a poor lil' Delft all caged up in glass and leftover from last season's Fall Winter line. I felt like I was at a pet adoption center and I was all but ready to sign my life away to taking care of this exotique.

Flash Floods in DC

Around 2:30 in the afternoon today, torrential rains poured in the District, causing a mini flash flood. It lasted a total of 15 mins. Here's my Brazza being washed away in the gutter like a paper boat.
