Gudrun Sjödén, a Shopping List, & Cheers to Fall

Are you a browser before acquiring items of any genre online? I am! There are moments when my fast fingers on the keyboard become stylishly trigger happy, nonetheless that's quite a rarity for me. This season as we transition from summer to autumn or perhaps you might be heading into spring where ever your location might be. Which ever the case, there's an overflowing amount of ways to absorb and interpret your fashion at the momentwhether you follow trends or not!

I decided to show you a few things on my wanted list, a couple of styles that I a looking forward to purchase and several pieces of inspiration from a brand that motivates my style attitude.
WISHFUL THINKING:




























(Above) What I want: a few items this season, from gold heels, to more jumpers and dashes of cobalt, and lastly another leather jacket to complete my fall wardrobe (you cannot have enough leather styles!)

______________________________________________________________________
If you've never heard of the brand Gudrun Sjödén of Sweden let me tell you it's been one of my favourite shops for a while, ever since my associate Inga gave me a pair of stockings from the collection. Not to mention, in case you ever needed to know that they even ship to the Faroe Islands; now this is somewhat meaningful, because I have two family friends who are actually from there ... who knew!
    

The Gudrun Sjödén line usually consist of sprightly prints that make you smile or at least have you curious, because it's not a line that designed toward a specific social status or luxe display. Nor is it a trend-based collection, instead the versatility and use of natural materials works favourably in the designs offering pieces that may be worn beyond any fashion season.

There's definitely a unique type of customer who acquires a Sjödén creation: one whose casual style seeks a hint of cultural inspiration, so to speak. Moreover, I'd describe the collection as worldy-art worn from a contemporary nomadic-fashionista, yet there are classic and basic elements grounded by the brand's roots in many of the pieces as well.

In fact, my favourite part may be that the Sjödén team also believes in being socially responsible, providing an area of green apparel for the ethical consumer. The product: functional garments with reduced packaging that focuses on clothing produced for diverse women of all sizes. Additionally, there's home decor items and fabrics that may be purchased alongside of their clothing.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
There's a healthy amount of silhouettes that have striking huescolour blocked layering separates that can work into a muted wardrobe or rich prints to liven up your ensembles. In the Julie & Juliette, and Autumn Dusk line extension, you'll find influence coming from Malaysia, to the artistic shadows of France, amongst others. I feel that the clothing's comfortable aesthetic is the essential part of what makes this brand so popular as well as the impressions of art.

Take a gander for yourself, even if not your daily style the colours are merely exuberant throughout ... a quirkish cool wind that's also quite inspiring.

    That Rick Owens jacket is so nice... I've seen bits of the Godrun Sjödén shop and really like the rather different style. Sorry I haven't been in touch earlier, it would have been nice to meet up but unfortunately I've been quite busy all weekend... Thanks for the sweet offer, wishing you a great week ahead xo

  15. I love new online shopping discoveries! This site looks like a good one to get lost in for a while. And these clothes look like the type of thing you want to layer up on and snuggle al winter. Which is what I *should* be looking for.....if I were sensible;)

Which kind of suck sometimes b/c then poof it's gone!
