Beautiful clothes in a pretty catalogue

The other day I got this beauty in the mail. It's the autumn catalogue from Gudrun Sjödén, a Swedish designer. I saw it advertised somewhere, and when I saw that Frida Kahlo-esque picture, I just knew I had to get a copy of that catalogue. SO beautiful! And it turns out that that picture is actually taken at Casa Azul, where Frida Kahlo lived. How cool is that?

And there are so many pretty things in that catalogue... oh, if only... I am especially in love with the Octavia wool coat (on page 40 & 42). If you want to take a look at the catalogue, just go to the website, they have an online version there. Just go look at the prettyness.

We need prettyness in our lives, people!


  1. How did you get a copy of the catalogue? I couldn't find it on the website.

    Thank you for posting this, I too am very inspired by Frida K!!

  2. 12 years on and the two dresses i bought from this collection are still my favourite pieces of clothing. I wear them on special occasions and look after my clothes!

  3. wow - I can't count.....it's been 13 years!!


Thank you very much for leaving me a message!
