this is sara's lovely shop, forynja.
and that's where i fell in love with this print! it was handprinted by sara's friend, siggi odds, onto a pale pink dress that she designed.
in the back of the shop, where all the printing takes place.
these shops that sara recommended are also great...
:: the naked ape (which she co-owns)
:: dead shop (handprinted designs)
:: rokk oq rosir (second hand shop)
:: kron (dreamy shoes by chie mahara, camper)
:: kron kron (the clothing counterpart of kron...eley kishimoto, marc jacobs)
thanks so much sara!

meet the icelandic love corporation
currently showing at the reykjavik art museum [the above photo is the entrance to the museum]. the graphics are great aren't they! their work is pretty, whimsical, and some of it is even a little creepy.
more pretty graphics on the windows of the museum
a wall of knits
a photograph featuring the ilc girls at snaefellsness, iceland. photo by páll stefánsson.
after the museum, we walked across the street to the library where i picked up this bookmark.
can you believe, even the library has got an artsy flair! near the entrance, there are stacks of plain white journals which you can decorate. and for more art...the reykjavik museum of photography is on the 6th floor of the library, where there is a nice, small exhibition on afternoon press photography in iceland.
tomorrow...shops in reykjavik!
p.s. happy birthday to my baba. i am going to make him a plum cake (inspired by love forever)!

hej! i'm back from beautiful stockholm and reykjavik...and have so much to show you! i fell head over heels for their...
:: minimalist designs + details
:: breakfast! give me soft boiled eggs, cheese, smjör (butter), sliced cucumbers, and crusty bread every morning, and i'll be a happy girl for life. the food is absolutely incredible, so fresh. oh, and i am now addicted to lingonberry drink!
:: nature. the white bark of birch trees. all that green, wow.
:: scandinavian friendliness, humor, and wit. and their love for nature.
:: fashion! lots of jeans tucked into boots, short skirts with warm tights, cozy sweaters and loose, drapey scarves. black, grey, dark wintry shades everywhere.
all about reykjavik tomorrow!
