First of all, IT'S FRIDAY! It's my last weekend in Europe for awhile, moving back to California on Tuesday. So, I'm taking my closest friends to my parents summerhouse in Sweden for a girls-weekend!
The two words to describe this weekend is: GIRL TIME
Catch you later!

|The women behind Wiksén: Camilla Hagen & Rikke Wiksén.|
Last Thursday, I was lucky to get the opportunity to help out with the fashion show for Wiksén during Oslo Fashion Week.
Their new collection for SS13 Dreamgirls is inspired by the vibes of Motown, wanting women to feel chic, elegant dressed and delicious comfortable. To create the vibe and rhythm of the 70s Motown vibes, the designer has mixed heavy fabrics as leather or jersey with light fabrics as silk, chiffon and light viscose.
I love the beautiful shade of the color blue which they have used in some of their dresses. And the leather items are fabulous, especially the pants.
Wiksén is definitely a brand to watch.
Here's a description of the brand:
Nordic chic. Fashionable chic. Cultural chic.Categories of chic describing the Wiksén woman.
She loves the world of literature, art, fashion and design.
Of world issues, history, politics and behavior.
She loves how it all intervenes into her daily life and effects all her actions.
She loves that she can dress up according to her mood, her thoughts,
and her agenda.
Feeling fabulous every day. Inspire others, be inspired…

|One of my best friends designed this window display logo for the flagship store of Moods of Norway in Oslo. She's such a talented individual.|
|Spotted this at a vintage store in Oslo while I was waiting for the tram.|
For those times when "judging a book by its cover" is needed. Window displays are a source of inspiration for me, especially when they are really good.. go figure, ha! When I was living in Paris, I loved to just go for walks around Gallerie Lafayette, Champs-Elyseés, rue de Saint Germain, Monmartre, and all those small street corners I have forgotten the name of, and just look at the boutique's window displays.
