When you read this I will probably be running around Copenhagen and interviewing Bottega Veneta's boutique manger for a case study, wish me luck! For now I will show you a little secret. Those who follow me on twitter already have a pretty good idea of what this is since I uploaded a (quite bad) picture when I bought it. Can you other ones guess? When I come back I will show you what I managed to get from the collection. Until then have a nice time everyone!
Fashion Week Honduras 2/4
Although part 1 was great we must continue. Today we talk about the last 3 shows of the first day. This section offered a mixture of menswear, jewelry and a newcomers. Sounds exciting? Have a look:

This line offers both womens- and menswear but their main focus is the second one, or at least as I perceive it. Brothers Daniel and Francisco Galeano presented this year a retro-vanguardism collection inspired in the 30s and 70s. The black/white dress was quite amazing, the highlight of the collection I believe. It is nice to see honduran designers venturing more to the extreme side of design. The menswear line was a good fusion between modern and latin, as it is important to consider that latin men have very different figures from those of the european men and that is why it is hard to achieve a modern or edgy look and yet keep it latin. Good job!

The brand Sofia-Sofia presented a selection of elegant and modern jewelry pieces which encapsulate honduran femininity at its best. Great to have a break to think about what to pair up all the clothes with.

Last but not least a newcomer took the stage and dazzled the audience. Palette is a new brand, founded by Cecilia Lopez and Melissa Valencia, which has come to rapidly earn its position in the honduran fashion industry. Soon we will present an interview with them here in My Little Wardrobe to learn a little more about them as they share how the brand was born. Coming soon, wait for it!
Their collection is characterized by chic elegance and I believe it is directed to young women who are not afraid to make a fashion statement but always keeping elegance in mind. The colors, materials and shapes all fall into place in a modern way and the show featuring a mime who did everything to get the models' attention was a creative way to present the playful collection. Congratulations and welcome to the Honduran Fashion industry Palette! Good collection!
Fashion Week Honduras 1/4
"Go BIG or go home!" like my adorable friend Gaby says. That is why this comeback is huge! Recently, Honduras celebrated its very own Fashion Week again and in my opinion it gets better every year. Still long way to go but getting better by the minute. This year I had the opportunity to collaborate with Fashion Week Honduras and My Little Wardrobe covered the entire event with the help of a very close friend but most importantly, a great photographer called Nancy Allen. Thank you Fashion Week Honduras an most specifically Fanne for all your support and for giving us this opportunity!
In this post I will take you to Honduras and we will have a look at the first three shows of the first day.
The day started with a dance show from the team in the dance school Patricia Paz.

The opening fashion show was Caroll Malloy. She describes he line as "whimsical with sexual magnetism". The designer is born and raised in Miami but has roots in Honduras and this is her second time presenting a collection in Fashion Week Honduras. In my opinion the collection was very structured and at the same time elegant and feminine. The theme rings some bells though...

Amber presented her debut womenswear collection which was inspired in New York City (where she currently lives). The color palette used in the collection clearly resembles a NY feeling and it gives a modern, edgy mood to it all. The bold lining colors used to contrast the black and grey tones used in the garments give the collection a fun twist and show good finishes. Leather is of course big this season and that was a hit! All in all a consistent and good collection!

If you are from Honduras and like fashion you know who he is. In my very humble opinion Tirso is a designer to keep an eye on. I was introduced to his designs last fashion week and I was completely blown away. Did I mention he is a self-taught designer?? This year he came back with his "Afterhours" collection which is born from the idea of the human being always wanting more. The collection is developed in the thought of the future, where, as the designer describes, we will live in between land and ocean, which is why blue is the main color in the collection. The ocean/land idea is also supported by the use of very contrasting materials and textures. I personally liked the denim skirts and the vests. I also like the use of accessories, they support what we have heard a lot for the 2011-2012 collections: "It's not which bag you're wearing, it's HOW you are wearing it!" Concluding: As a whole a very good collection with a consistent theme and as many mentioned, perfect finishes! Everything looked as it had been stitched by an angel, great on that side but also I believe sometimes less is better. Well done Tirso, you have won our heart once again!
Hope you have all enjoyed this introduction to the Fashion Week and keep our eyes open for the following posts.
Best of London FW
London fashion week (spring/summer 2012) is on, after NY Fashion Week and I cannot help but notice the differences between the two. I believe London FW has been so much better, design wise. It has offered much better design and in general a better Fashion Week. This only raises the expectations for Paris and Milan. Here are some images from what I consider to be the best of the week so far.

P.S. Excuse the lack of posting but I have currently no access to photoshop, which makes it kind of impossible to blog (with quality at least). Doing all in my power to solve this. Thank you for reading!
(l-r) Stella McCartney in Bolero Magazine, september edition, Stella McCartney a/w 2011 collection.We all like to be right, isn't that true? Well, if you want to be right this season you will probably get something with a dotted pattern as it is one of the strongest trends of the season. For me it is all about dotted+sheer fabrics as we can see in Stella McCartney's collection or about a dotted pattern with strong, contrasting colors like we can see more in Marc Jacobs. I have been searching for something like this in the last weeks but have not been successful in it, any suggestions are appreciated! =) I bet some store will have something similar as more of the fall and winter collections arrive.

Do you like this trend or have any opinions on it?
Are you looking for a future collector piece? Look no further, Givenchy's printed scarves for fall/winter season 2011 are not only a must for the season but also considered to be future collector pieces. The prints are based in the panther print for the ready to wear collection. The collection itself has prints from panthers, bears and other animals but also a special combination in between plants, purple flowers and golden items. Not traditional combinations but they have been a hit. In my opinion, if you can make anything with those prints look sexy you rule! I would SO wear these pieces, specially the first look from left to right with the see-through skirt, it is so sexy but nerdy at the same time. Love it! Anyone agrees?
Hope you have had a great weekend!

Latest outfit. Weather change and school are the main reasons I haven't been able to have as many outfit pic lately. Promise I will work on it. What do you think of my cape? Hadn't showed it to you, got it for very little money in the summer Nelly outlet in Borås this summer. It is comfortable and warm!
Have a nice weekend!
Senaste outfiten. Pga. vädret och skolan har jag inte haft så många outfit inlägg på sistone men jag lovar att jag vill försöka förbättra det. Hade inte visat min kappa, köpte den på Nellys sommaroutlet, en riktig deal! Vad tycks?
Ha en trevlig helg allihop!

New In 2
As I mentioned yesterday, two new pieces have been recently received into my closet for autumn. Piece number two is a pair of leather look-alike leggings. The fit perfectly and match absolutely EVERYTHING! Basic, basic, basic. Next in line is another pair of pants but this time orange, red or green and in another fabric. Will post my current wishlist soon.
Like or dislike? Highly recommended to anyone, they are just basic for autumn and winter seasons.
P.S. Has anyone visited Zara lately, it is like fabrics jackpot! So many sorts of fabric this season, love it!
Thank you for reading!
Autumn is all over and the closet needs some update. Had a look at Zara the other day and I wanted to take the entire store home (no surprise there). Even though that clearly didn't happen haha, I took two pieces home which I believe will be an important part of the wardrobe this season. This top is one of them. Have been talking non-stop about the "caricature shapes" and it was about time to get a piece of my own. The metallic thread is just fantastic and it makes the pieces very versatile (for day as well as for evening).
Any thoughts? Has anyone had a look at Zara lately and is desiring something specific? Will post soon about this season's must-know-about trends in case you are also updating your closet.
This weekend my bf and I celebrated our 6th anniversary (ouch sounds like A LOT). As adorable as he usually is, he got me something he knew I have been wanting for a while now, a charm bracelet. I have been wanting one for a long time now but when we were in Paris (march) for his b-day he bought me an eiffel tower charm and since then I have been saying I will get one for real. It is gorgeous! Cannot wait to start filling it up, I have established to get a new charm for every new big thing in my life. Like now one representing my master degree in fashion management, when I get a job after graduating...hopefully haha or when we get married, etc.
What do you think? Isn't in perfect? Does any of you also collect charms?
Den här helgen firade jag och min pojkvän 6 år tillsammans (oj vad det låter mycket). Han vet vad jag gillar och vad jag vill och den här gången var det inget undantag. Jag fick ett charm bracelet som jag velat ha länge nu. Är det inte fint? Jag älskar det och kan inte vänta på att börja fylla det. Har bestämmt att köpa en berlock för varje stor grej i mitt liv, som min magister, ett jobb, brölloppet, osv.
Har någon av er ett charm bracelet själv som ni jobbar på att fylla?
Living up to Expectations
Jil Sander left a very hig bar with his spring/summer 2011 collection. It was THE collection of the season and nobody could wait to see what was coming after that. The autumn collection had nothing to envy from the summer one, total hit! Its' shapes are being reproduced by all the budget fashion brands now and there is no better proof for success. As I wrote in a previous post, caricucature/bubble shapes rule the season! Isn't this red top/jacket perfect? I cannot think of a piece I desire more this season. Ejoy!
These last days have been so exciting, so many new experiences and so many new and interesting persons. Here are some images from our fashionable school.
Promoting the Honduran Fashion! Today we had a group work and I presented the honduran fashion in a poster. So happy to tell my classmates about fashion in Honduran, many don't even know where Honduras is. Hope you like the poster! By it you can see the contrasting swedish fashion.
Here you can see a tiny bit of the worlshops in school, they are simply breathtaking, feels like the real deal, you forget you are in a school.
Today we had a fashion show with garnments prepared in some hours byt the students, some were really great, sprry for the bad quality, I didn't have my camera.
It is time to receive a complete new season and for that we need the trends that will keep us, as we love, one step ahead. An interesting trend for this season is the one I call "caricature shapes" because it just seems like shirts and dresses which are drawn ove the body, they are so still and spacey (those two usually never come together when one refers to fabrics), an effect acquired by the use of neoprene-like fabrics. Here are some options from H&M and Zara to wear this trend. I haven't tried on any of these but will do, how about you, like the trend or not your thing?
Weekend outfit! Had a full weekend, did everything from concert and drinks to wedding invitation tryout prints. Did you have good weekends too? Summer is berely here now so for those who leave in cold countries and have the same luck, go out as much as possible and show off your wardrobes for the last times!
Have fun my fashionistas!
Helgens outfit. Min helg var fullt upp, gjorde allting från drinkar&koncert till bröllopsinbjudnings utskrifter. Hade ni en bra helg också? Sommaren är knappast kvar så gör ert bästa och visa dina sommargarderober.
Ha det kul mina fashionistas!

This beauty, as seen on Leona Lewis, arrived yesterday and made my day! Ready for school days and book carrying! It's spacy and light! Forgot to tell you I am working on a DIY pencil case made from plastic. Will show it when it's ready. Like my new baby? It comes from Paul's Boutique and it was bough on asos ;) It comes in some other fabulous colors, check them out!
It took no one for surprise that reality TV star Kim Kardashian selected Vera Wang as the designer of the gown for her upcoming wedding (Aug. 20). The Kardashian family has had a close relationship with the designer for long and it was an obvious selection. What nobody yet knows is what the dress will look like. Searching for this answer, famous wedding site, brides.com, requested several designers to sketch fantasy wedding dresses inspired by her style. These three are my favorites, they completely represent her glamurous and stylish self. I would wear any of them, would you?
Watters for Kim Kardashian:
Beautiful organza gown inspired in Old Hollywod and accentuating her fabulous curves.
Ines Di Santo (right)
Gown features a detachable train which leaves a short sexy dress for the reception. It includes cou-out details and embroidered Swarovski crystals. Glamour to its best!
Designer Don O'Neill for Theia (left)
Designer tells to brides.com: "The details are extravagant and opulent, yet delicate, feminine, and sophisticated," "The lining is a pale pink that will show through from underneath just at the bottom of the skirt."
Don't they all represent her to perfection. Great suggestions but we are yet to be impressed by bridal gown guru Vera Wang!
The Striped Shirt
This summer I found this little treasure in H&M (the striped shirt). I just love it. So easy to wear and to match as well. This is one of the outfits I put together using it. With it comes a tip for those who live in Sweden. The day I wore this outfit, I went to a model-for-a-day session in a company called Model House. They have great make up artists there, I loved my make up! They also have great service and you pay only for the pictures you buy, not for the service itself. Great idea for a girls night out, a bachelorette pre-party or simply to get a great family picture. Enjoy!

To complete the Stockholm Fashion Week report, here comes Rodebjer, Nhu Dhuong and Whyred. great week if you ask, stockholm fashion week continues getting better with time I believe. me but I wonder what you liked and disliked?
Thoughts of life in a metropolitan night. The colors are fantastic and they bring a relaxed summer to us, with lose yet chic shapes. Rodebjer is one of my favorite swedish fashion houses and this season was no exception.
Sporty but classy unusual materials. Swedish minimalism is perfectly represented in this collection and again we see a sporty air to it as we saw in altewai.saome and hernández cortes. I see that as one of the big trends for the season. Are you up for an adventurous summer next year?
A reduced range of base colors creates a 60's inspired masculine preppy-femininity. Lose figures are also a repeated feature for the season but that doesn't for a second allows sloppiness to take a stand on the runway.-
There you go. Thank you Stockholm for a great show, now we pass the torch to New York, always in our hearts and next in line for Fashion Weeks' season!
Fashion Weeks world tour has begun and it did it in Scandinavia. This week it was Stockholm who held the spring/summer 2012 shows. This is one of the two posts in which I will sum up the events of the week for you all. Here goes:
As described in the Mercedes Benz Fashion week site, " the collection mixes heavy embroidery with sporty cuts that makes the clothes useful for work as well as late nights out". Definitely my favorite collection of the entire week. So fresh!
Minimalistic to the bone with inspiration from nature. This collection also had a sporty feeling to it. To me this is real scandinavian design. Not my type but many can certainly make this work.
A neon explosion in some way. "Inspired by relaxed Moroccan lifestyle", "tailored for the modern vagabod". Nothing new in my opinion but great for a relaxed style.
Femenine and lusty. A painful, passionate love comes to mind. This is definitely a night out-collection or even a bedroom collection. Ida never ceases to impress us, we should never know what to expect from her and that's why she gets points from me, more than for the fashion itself.
There you go? What are your thoughts? Can't wait to see how these collections compare with the ones from the following fashion weeks (paris, milan, etc...)
Nothing better than mojitos for a fresh start. Now it's comeback for real and I wanted to do it with an outfit post. This was a day out with my sis and boy. First we had brunch at Incontro and then mojitos at Heaven 23. Great day, could not eat more for the rest of the day... haha!
Hope you are all having. I just got my new computer and my next post will probably be from it. So excited, Off to open it now!!
Skirt- Forever21 (gift from sister), Shirt and clutch- old (don't remember), shoes- nelly.com
Just wanted to recommend a fashion exhibition for those living here in Gothenburg. The design museum Röhsska is hosting it and it has many interesting items from different periods in time. Here are some images from when my sis and I visited it. Enjoy!
My bridal fever gives me even more reasons to appreciate and love the couture collections. These are some highlights from the latest fall couture collection. The mood is definitely dreamy. The light fabrics, the flow and of course the details. These dresses can make anyone feel like an angel. What do you say?
Loving summer days! Feels amazing! These pics are from June but as you all know I have been absent. That day I took my sister for lunch at Jensen's (steak fast food as I like to call it), Just love the food there, and the prices, why not!
Dress - F21, Sandals - H&M, necklace - edbland&co and ring bought in Honduras
(Not So) New In
My sis & I had both been looking for a minty nail polish for a while. We found one the other day and with it came a new discovery, a pastel purple one. They are both gorgeous, so playful. They were also cheap, only 25Kr for each. Any thoughts?
Hello back again. I have some sort of summer break. My sis has been here for over a month now and she has been my priority. No better way to come back than with an outfit post. Summer here in Göteborg has been ok... sun sometimes, rain other ones, warm, cold, hot, a little of everything, more like a spring if you ask me. But I don't complain we have had fun still. This was an outfit from a day out in Rumpanbar. I love the food there and the prices for the cocktails are not so bad.
T-shirt, jeans and jacket - H&M, shoes - Tribeca by Kenneth Cole and bag - ANVE
Today's outfit (from some days ago actually, we visited Marstrand and had an amazingly beautiful and sunny day)

Two for One
To celebrate my sister's arrival we had dinner on wednesday with some friends. it was the first day this year warm enough for me to wear a skirt so why not. Here you go, two outfits for one! Like?
P.S. Sorry I had been away for long but my computer has not been available.
Häromdagen firade vi att min syster had äntligen hade ankommit. Det var äntligen varmt nog för att ha kjol på sig (i mitt fall i alla fall hehe) så min syster hjälpte mig att vara modig nog att göra det för förta gången i år. Varsågod, två outfits till priset av en! vad tycks?
My outfit: Shirt-Zara, skirt-Forever21, shoes-Mexico, sunglasses Zara. Sister's: Dress-Forever21, Blazer-H&M and shoes-BCBG
Yesterday we celebrated Andra Långdagen here in Sweden and the way to celebrate it was in Andra Långgatan (a street) where a sort of carnival took place. There I found lots of fashion inspiration and I share it here with you, with a special street style edition. Take a look at all these fashionable Gothenburgians.
Igår firade vi Andra Långdagen och då åkte jag, min syster och min pojkvän till Andra Långgatan där någon sorts karneval/gatufest ägde plats. Där hittade jag mycket modeinspiration och vill dela den med er. Titta vilka fashionabla göteborgare!
Resort 2011 Inspiration
Where I live we are still only dreaming about warm degrees so as I dream I decided to inspire mysled and all of you with outfits from some resort 2011 collections. I feel like wearing all of them, one each day of the week next week haha. Enjoy! It's almost weekend yey!
Bara några inspirationsbilder från olika resort 2011 kollektioner. Jag vill bära alla dessa looks! En till varje dag av veckan nästa vecka haha.
