I Lykke Like


Call it an obsession. You're probably tired of me talking and talking about these awesome Swedish blogger girls, but lets face it -they're so freaking cool! And it seems as though I'm not the only one who is obsessed...

Its seems that one of my favorite up and coming designers, Jenni Kayne, shares my infatuation with Moderniteter and LisaPlace. Her Spring/Summer 09 models displayed her floral chiffon, denim and 90's silhouettes, and all were of course topped off with that classic Swedish girl ballerina bun.













which brings me to Lykke Li...

I've been hearing a lot about this ultra-cool, Swedish girl singer in the past few months, but waited till her full album debuted in the US. Coiffed with "the bun" and all, this girl can make music as good as she can dress (meaning: REALLY GOOD). Her album Youth Novels is a must listen for fans of Imogen Heap, Bjork, and Zero 7. I wouldn't classify it as techno (because I am NOT a fan), but the music is sort of dancey and futuristic and tribal all at the same time. Give some of her music a listen on my bear music player - you will be pleasantly delighted and will want to start dancing in your rollie chair.


this single cover looks a little like Marie Antoinette, no?


***check out some Lykke Li music videos below as well as a how-to done by the girls of Moderniteter on how to make "the Swedish bun".

She has a really cute style - I love the outfit with the denim jacket and the "tutu" skirt!

She's also working that messy ballerina bun! I would love to wear it but that style would never work with my facial structure.

Thank you darling for the lovely comment about my shoes! Have a great day :)
