Indian summer dreams


Thank goodness summer is not over! I`m taking advantage of the nice weather and wearing all my caftans and hippidresses to embrace the last of summer. These photos I took for my shop and the caftan is available to buy through

Parkland dreaming


I`ve been working hard on launching my online shop and it`s finally up and running! Take a look HERE! As a result I haven`t had much time to enjoy the lovely weather and that`s why I look a bit dreamy in these photos - it was impossible to get any good ones where I looked at the camera because I looked too tired. Although I`m tired I am extremely happy to have made a dream come true and I`m going to work hard to sustain it and make it successful! So please excuse my lack of posting! I promise more frequent blog updates from now on! I hope you are well and that your summer holiday dreams have been fulfilled!

The top I`m wearing in the photos is now for sale in my shop HERE!

Sunny calls for lace

dress from a market in London

I love these sunny summer evenings in Oslo, the city bathed in sunlight making everything so serene.... This dress I`ve had for a while, it`s not vintage but I love the 60s feel of it with the rounded collar and scallop lace front.

My Cup Of Tea Vintage

I`m sorry I have been slightly abscent from the blog lately, but the reason is the mentioned above - I`m working on launching a vintage shop! It`s been my dream to do this and I`m super excited to finally moving a head making a dream come true! We have launched a blog for the shop and I`d be so happy if you clicked on our link to take a look at the very first blog post - our SS 2013 lookbook!

Online shop coming soon on

Summer is finally here

I had the pleasure of spending a mini break in Hardanger with my boyfriend visiting his family. They all live on the same farm land by the fjord - it`s idyll one don`t find too often....

Desert Vintage

vintage dress - DESERT VINTAGE

Photo by Øystein Håland  @jefcostello

No, it`s not a name I invented for wearing vintage in the desert. Desert Vintage is an actual shop in Tucson and I got to know the owners whilst travelling through Arizona. We made a pit stop in Tucson and stumbled upon Desert Vintage (or actually the lime coloured house which contains the shop is hard to miss) where we got chatting to the owners Salima and Roberto who are the sweetest people. They invited us out that same evening and we ended up staying almost three days there and spending alot of time with Roberto and Salima. They showed us what Tucson is all about - live music, art, fashion, friends and fun - being yourself and following your dreams.

The Californian desert has me enchanted. I just want to go back to hang out with all the lovely people we met in the weird and wonderful places we visited. I promise you will see some photos on here soon that are not from the desert. So stay with me....

Favourite Instagram Pictures March

 In March I travelled around in America, driving a car around for the most part, and discovered many lovely places, visited some of the natural wonders of the world, met some wonderful people and bought some amazing vintage clothes. Here is a selection of some of my favourite Instagram photos from the trip. Take a look at my profile @mondeordinaire (or click the link in the sidebar) to see the rest of the photos from my trip.

I climb mountains in chiffon dresses


Photo by Øystein Håland (@jefcostello)

I love frolicking around in flowy dresses, and shooting in this California desert for My Cup Of Tea Vintage was incredible - almost like being in a different world - massive stones forming small mountains creating spectacular organic shapes. The sheer dress moving with the wind created a beautiful contrast to the stone wall in the background. But you should have seen the view of the desert in front of me - amazing!
