November 1 theme: Sweaters

Mrs Sophistique Noir is demanding a post about sweaters. And when she does, who am I, to refuse. I want to show you my absolutely favourite sweater, I use this one a lot. It is from Gudrun Sjödén one of her folklore winter collections. It is inspired by both Swedish kurbits and Ukranian embroderie. With this sweater I wear a fake fur shrug from La Redoute and a red skirt that once were a dress from Gudrun Sjödén. 
Here's a close up of the machine embroderies that goes along the arms.
And a close up of my mechanical pocket watch a bought several years ago.

I'm so looking forward to see what the other participants will post. Hopefully some inspiration for coming winteroutfits.

  3. Åh tack vad snällt sagt. Jag är obekväm med att lägga ut bilder på mig själv. Jag hatar hur jag ser ut nu.

  5. I just never grow tired of folkloric embroidery, no matter how old I get. Of course I can't find them now, but didn't you make some mitts with that sort of embroidery? I bet they'd look great with that sweater! And now I need to go look at the Gudrun Sjödén website - you know, just in case... ;o)

    P.S. I love your hair that colour. :o)

  9. Wow, folk embroideries, lovely <3 I wouldn't guess they are inspired by Ukrainian embroidery (they look kind of Polish to me, something like from city called Łowicz) , though, but they still have very distinct folkish vibe <3
