redhaireddesigner 's thoughts:

This wonderful dress was purchased in Stockholm from a very special place call the Stockholm Stadmission. The Stockholms Stadsmission was founded waaay back in 1853. Their organization helps the homeless by improving their quality of life and they also provide education and social services to these individuals. One of the many things that the Stockholm Stadmission does is rent and operate various thrift stores around the fashion district in Stockholm. These stores are so lovingly and carefully curated. The clothes are organized in an impeccable fashion and it is surprising that this place could even be a ‘thrift’ store. Just like in Berlin, they also have a section where local designers have reconstructed some vintage pieces and are selling in their own designer section.

This dress is the perfect little shirt dress and the kind woman who checked me out at the counter said how much she had loved this piece and how happy she was that someone was finally giving it a home. She had a nice little story about the woman who donated the clothes and it was nice to know there was a story behind the dress. The nautical colours were the perfect thing to represent Swedish design for me since the waterways in Stockholm had been our saving grace and our central focus during this part of the trip. Pairing it with my good old oxford and this sweet little Anne of Green Gables hat made for the perfect day out getup.
