The cherry blossoms are magical and they only lasts for a few weeks. I am so happy that I got to see it just after I came back from Paris. The trip to Paris was amazing - I found new antique markets, exhibition of how the lovely city looked like 100 years ago and I got to visit the Oriental Express. See pictures of it here and get the vintage and antique market tips here.

This little lovely dress is from the 1920:s. Can you imagine! I found it at the Stockholm Vintage fair. It was hanging among a lot of other second hand pieces but when I saw the silhouette and felt the fragile fabric I knew that this was a really old pearl. And guess what - it cost me 10 dollar! NOTHING. The girl who sold it said that she had got all the clothes from her mother or grandmother, and I guess she just didn't know what she was selling. 1920:s dresses are rare, they are old and today they are popular so therefore they expensive. Because of how short this one is and by its color it has probably been a seaside dress, maybe a swimsuit, even though it is made in silk. For me it is a treasure!

The turban is from the 1940:s. And the brooch is from my old grandmother Annie, who was young in the 1920:s and loved masquerades! The stay-ups has this lovely powder pink color, they are bought in a boutique called Pistill in Stockholm.

  1. What a fantastic find! I'd love to rummage through someone's grandmother's clothes and get stuff from the 20s-50s for even £10, let alone £5. So envious and the colour is great on you
