Spotting Deer & Finding Designer Clothes

"Oh my gosh, I'm wearing a perfect look" or whatever I thought when we took this picture.


Other girls go for a walk and end up seeing deer, I end up coming home with a bag full of designer clothes. A few weeks ago, I just wanted to walk a little bit hand in hand with my darling and before I knew what was happening I was standing in the Markentussi store – a fabulous vintage store. I found myself in their changing room with an armload full of clothes from Alexander McQueen, Marc Jacobs and Moschino.

By pure coincidence, this Lena Hoschek skirt was exactly my size. Don't you agree there was no way leaving without it? And to top up my luck: The Marc Jacobs (not Marc by Marc Jacobs) jacket very close by seemed to be made for it. Gosh, I felt like the one and only queen of all shopping queens, getting just two amazing designer pieces in one stroke.

I've been collecting look books from Lena Hoschek for years but never owned a single piece of this outstanding Austrian designer. Her designs are obviously 50s inspired, but with a very distinctive twist. Quite a while ago, when I was still a poor student, I tried on a few Lena pieces and dreamt of owning something of those treasures.

I might be a few years older since then, maybe have a little less skinny legs and the first fine line on my skin, but I have this fabulous skirt as well. Getting older is so cool when it means that your dreams are coming true! I should go for a walk again, maybe I'll spot deer then…

Do you also end up doing something you haven't planned at all and what do you think about this look?

My Outfit:
Skirt: Lena Hoschek Vintage, Jacket: Marc Jacobs Vintage, Bag: Little Sunny Bite, Sunglasses: Miu Miu (slightly different pink here), Earrings & Necklace: Now Or Never
Shoes: Vivienne Westwood for Melissa, Socks: Topshop

  6. They often opt for budget wise baby items than designer and expensive baby collections. What is important is to buy nowadays are the primary things that babies need than expensive and branded items. cash4clothesexpert
