I couldn’t resist a spot of shopping when I was in Stockholm, it’s pretty trendy for me to be honest, like hackney on another level of hipster. I did however manage to find some shops that we’re more on my level amongst the sea of vintage shops, so I thought I’d do a little haul post to show you the pieces I picked up. To be honest it’s pretty much all from shops we have here but there’s something novel about shopping in another currency, I always feel like I’m getting more of a bargain.. very dangerous!
I picked up this short sleeved jumper from a shop called Gina Tricot which I’d never heard of before, it’s a similar style to H&M I guess but a lot cheaper. I seriously struggled when choosing between this rust colour and grey, I was shocked that a) I didn’t get both, and b) I didn’t get the grey. I always buy grey and I do want to wear colour, honestly, I just find it difficult because I love grey and it loves me. Anyway I’m glad I chose the rust because it’s super nice and it suits me, even if I do say so myself! You can see me wearing it in my Autmn Rust Post.
If I go in a Zara and I don’t buy anything my mood is lowered by at least 50%, it’s just not healthy. If you read my blog you’ll know I’m a sucker for a white t shirt, this one is honestly so soft on the inside and I love the structured shape and texture.
I got this vest because it’s so soft I can’t even explain to you, and it had a red sale sticker on it, who cares what the price is, it’s on sale! Then when I was paying I saw this monster of a ring, I’m not usually one for a chunky ring but I actually love this and my long gangly fingers can definitely take it! When I was looking to link it on Mango I noticed how nice their jewellery collection is, seriously, have a look.
You can’t go to Sweden and not go to H&M, it’s just rude. I have to be honest, because Zara’s so cheap in Spain I was expecting H&M to be Primark prices so I was pretty shocked when they were the same there as they are here. I still brought stuff though, duh. Has anyone else been to H&M in Sweden before? They have an entire make up range of their own and also stock other brands like Max Factor and Real Techniques, they do hair dyes and dry shampoo and all sorts! I was really excited by this and couldn’t resist a lipstick which is actually so nice and my new favourite! I also picked up this pretty lace bra, I usually get all of my pretty bras from elcy clothing but I couldn’t resist this fishnet style beauty.
