{take me away № 41 | city guide № 7 : stockholm, sweden}

{take me away № 41 | city guide № 7 : stockholm}

Stockholm, Sweden's treasured capital city, and the most populated region in all of Scandinavia, is located on the eastern coast of the country, at the mouth of Lake Mälaren.

{take me away № 41 | city guide № 7 : stockholm}

Often fondly referred to as the "Venice of the North", Stockholm's 2.1 million residences are incredibly fortunate to call this city home, for it is boundless in beauty and unabashed, historical splendour . . . 

{take me away № 41 | city guide № 7 : stockholm}

Visitors will no doubt be enamored and taken aback by the city's gentle bodies of water met by islands that create what we call Stockholm.

{take me away № 41 | city guide № 7 : stockholm}

Like grand, green stepping stones, the city consists of fourteen islands, connected by nearly sixty bridges; bridges that lead to the island carry visitors and residences alike, to separate little worlds, or villages, each with their very own attractions and sites.  

{take me away № 41 | city guide № 7 : stockholm}

It is said that thanks to Stockholm's beautiful waters and lush green spaces, their air is clean and fresh. And what better way to take in a city than by foot? Stockholm encourages both foot and cycling throughout the city, particularly as many points of interest are not far from one another. 

{take me away № 41 | city guide № 7 : stockholm}

While visiting, we encourage you to immerse yourself in the culture and warmth of the people of Stockholm -- for they are just as kind and welcoming as stories tell.

. . . it has been sunny for days straight, causing spring fever and celebrations by way of lemon & raspberry frangipane tarts, and the desire to throw open all the windows and pick up beautiful washed lace bedlinens . . .

{damsel in dior : jennifer lawrence at the oscars}

{tuesday musings & jennifer lawrence at the oscars}

. . . always joke to p to that the oscars are my equivalent to the superbowl, and if you had a chance to watch last sunday night, you would have seen jennifer lawrence's rather beautiful fall up the stairs, on the way to collect her best actress award, causing bradley cooper and hugh jackman to run to her rescue, which she quickly declined; the dress apparently had already had six inches taken off the bottom, but at the end of it all, if one is to fall, in palest pink dior haute couture [& a quick recovery] is the way to do it . . .

{decor inspiration | in the garden : a tale of topiaries}

. . . for the past few weeks, have been searching for the perfect pair of topiaries to place on the front terrace, on either sides of the front door -- bay, olive, evergreen; a little rustic or perfectly manicured, there are so many possibilities, and with that, the longing to bring the pretty little trees indoors as well, or perhaps, create an entire enchanted forest . . .

DOLCE & GABBANA - READY TO WEAR - FALL WINTER 2013 - MILAN

. . . elegant herringbone tweeds in shades of grey, red lipstick and perfect chignons; and little white dresses with delicate lace and gilded tiaras -- around here, both looks would be equally acceptable for the office -- for gilded tiaras were quite possibly made for mondays . . .

New York Fashion Week was filled with power this year—from the striking, yet refined contrasts at Proenza Schouler, to the elegant structure at Del Pozo, and dazzling metallics at Marc Jacobs.

Maison de Urbana

Milly

At the Milly show, we were floored by the glittering metallics, sparkle, and bright hologrammed leathers.  Michelle Smith named this collection "illumination" and illuminate it did—the use photorealistic prints, dark charcoals and metallic blacks stood out.

. . . and while on the topic of switching things up and paring down [just a little] with no-make-up makeup, might as well take it one step further, with a little casual chic—tempered, of course, with a little elegance, for that perfect mix of rock & refined . . .
