redhaireddesigner 's Thoughts:

On my trip I was lucky enough to spend a week in Ostersund (north Sweden) with one of my best friends from Australia, Sofia, who was lovely enough to let me stay with her in her lovely little house. While I was there and she was at work I spent my days vintage/thrift shopping, touring around the little town, avoiding her cat, and cooking Swedish foods.

While I was in Ostersund I had the chance to find some real vintage and thrift gems from Swedish designers. Everything this season is neon bright colours and solid prints and although I love my bright colours, there is something so lovely about a soft, lacy babydoll that fall around your waist and surrounds you like a gentle kiss.

The aged ivory lace that this dress has is so beautiful and the larger pattern is pretty special. I love finding the little details and hidden flowers that come out in the lace in different lights and shadows. This was the perfect dress for walking around the quiet and serene woods in her area – I felt like a wood nymph for something else ethereal. It seems like everywhere you go in Sweden, you’re not far from a secret spot in the woods that seems like it was out of a dream.
