Pink October , My shop opening and the Margot grey dress...

Dear friends! Months ago it ocurred to me that I had to create something special for the month of October . The important month for cancer awearness and so this sweater was created , a very pink sweater for a very pink month.
Last friday model Vilma and I drove to Rosendals trädgård here in Stockholm where we found the perfect atmosphere for this important photoshoot. The little hat Vilma is wearing I knitted the same day and a fresh rose from my garden gave it the final touch. There wasn´t so much time but I think that we managed to create the perfect feeling that I wanted for this important cause...
Makeup in the car and fast outfit changing and off we went to the most beautiful garden in Stockholm, Rosendals trädgård , I simply love the atmosphere here and really who does not ?!? Everyone who has not been here MUST visit...
 
 In the loving memory for every cancer patient... Familiy member and friend who has lost the battle with cancer and to the ones who continue to conquer it ! We will find a cure!!!
 
 
 
 
Today I bought  ( for my whole family )the special ribbon to support the cancer foundation here in Sweden , as I always do in October. The ribbon is designed by the swedish designer Bea Szenfeld and it is made of paper ( specially treated ), she specializes in working with paper. I love the design and happy to be able to buy it... I think that we all have to contribute with what we can for this important matter !!! Then in the afternoon they annonced that the nobel prize in Medicine will go to James P.Allison and Tasuku Honjo for their discovery of cancer therapy by inhibition of negative immune regulation !!! So wonderful news this monday of October !!! And If we continue to give and have faith we will beat this horrible disease!!!
 
 
 
My shop will open again on the 12th of October Dear friends and it will be with an Opera night . If you are interested in coming this night you will have to inbox me a message as the space is limited...
 
                                                                     Margot Grey Dress and Neko shoulder bag...
 
 
The margot dress in grey cotton jersey is a perfect match to the neko hand painted shoulder bag... This is also the last Margot dress of this Collection of dresses AW/18...
 
 
Dear friends this was all for this time...

Colder days , youtube and the margot chocolat dress...

Dear friends... Colder days are here with rain, wind and  summer days suddenly feels so far away... Still I must say that this is one of my favourite seasons of the year...Autumn...mmm ...Love!!!
The colors of the nature ,to lit a fire , the calm days at home  , cozy knits and a lot of comfort food with the ones you love  with a glass of wine or two is pretty much what autumn is for me... The inspiration is everywhere and not to mention all the wonderful cultural activities we take the time to do this time of the year , it is like a blessing for a creative soul like me....
The planning of the dinner especially on weekends are the best this time of the year , a dish of warm food just tastes better when it is cold outside and if it rains even better...
 
Isn´t Italian cooking the best comfort food in the world!?! I so agree with Sofia Loren and qoute her famous lines - Everything you see I owe to spaghetti!!! Love it!!!! My Italian heritage is never so present when it comes to food and maybe my temperament of course...
 
Dear Friends I am so happy to let you all know that my design is now on Youtube... Yeeees it is sooo wonderful and I am so happy with the result!! My Dear sister is the one that has helped me with everything regarding this and she did a great work. Just look for Andrea Labbé Design on youtube and you will find the first material of this new adventure for me...
The blouse that you will see is the Clementine Blouse with my beautiful model Vilma. Enjoy Dear friends!
 
                                         The Margot Chocolat Dress and a little handpainted leather bag...
 
 
The Margot Chocolate dress and the little hand painted bag with cats is a perfect match don't you think ? The dress is made in a super soft cotton lycra and can be matched with many colours . The dress is very easy to dress up or down as in the picture my model is wearing mesh socks with glitter ...and why not ???The bag is made in leather with the cutest naif cat painting...
 
 
Dear friends , that is all for this time! I hope that you enjoyed it!
Remember that beauty is how you feel inside and it reflects in your eyes...

A lot of kisses and a happy weekend Dear friends!

The Margot Dress , new bags and the family princess...

Dear Friends! A long and cozy day has come to an end... The days in my life are always cozy when they include visiting and cuddle with my niece... She is the princess of our whole family and I love her so... She is so cute and stole my heart from the first day she was born... I am going to spoil her , yes I am:-) and so is my husband that already buys her things on his travels around the world. Today he told me that on his trip to India two days ago he wanted to buy her a mini saree (Indian traditional dress in silk ) but that he could not find anyone in the colour that he liked , so most likely the familiy princess will get her saree some day soon...
Here she is...The one and only Dominique !!!
