fp travels in stockholm

Post image for fp travels in stockholm

remember when i posted about some of our fp girls in paris the other day? well they also went to stockholm and met up with swedish blogger minna of the blog vintage (a love story). minna posted about it on her blog and i wanted to share some of her beautiful photos along with a translation of her post about their day in stockholm!

On Friday we had a very nice day, the sun was shining, we had toasted sandwiches for breakfast and then we got dressed and went to Skeppsholmen to pick up three girls from Philadelphia – they are designers for the brilliant brand Free People, and made a one-day stop in Stockholm during an inspirational trip to Europe.

Some of the stores we visited were Beyond Retro, Tjallamalla, Fifth Avenue Shoe Repair and Lisa Larson.

Then we went to one of the coolest stores in Stockholm, Unionville. The Free People girls were clearly impressed by the shop and studio.

Douglas showed us bits of turquoise and gold, which they dug up in the Nevada desert.

At Unionville the sound is a mix of vinyl, thumps of a hammer, the drone of a chewing machine and creaking floors, and smells of denim.

for lunch we ate at Nytorget Urban Deli.

At Beyond Retro at Zinc, we found an amazing 40′s dress – it had everything, model, color, fabric, details!

In the evening we had drinks and food at Heather’s.

Then we said goodbye …now I really know where Free People’s fabulous clothes come from. They have designers that feel genuine and very different from each other in many ways, and perhaps that is precisely what makes the result so very very good.

thank you so much minna for your kind words and this sweet post! view the post on her blog here.

Travel in Stockholm is great . The old city (Gamla Stan ) , The Royal National Park , vasa museum are main attraction of Stockholm. I have spent nice time in Stockholm previous year .
