Utrolig mange kule bilder! Liker stilen din - laidback, feminin og litt rocka. Og Balenciaga-vesken er super fresh!!

The Fashion Economist said...

Tusen takk, fining! Du aner ikke hvor fornøyd jeg er med Bal'en. Har hengt på armen min daglig siden det ble oss to:)

Wow that's seriously a lot of outfits to take in all at once! Such fun :)

Btw are you really an economist? I'm a scientist and it's always interesting to find other bloggers who don't work in "fashion"...

The Fashion Economist said...

Hi Duck! Yeah, I saved some outfits for this post:)
I am indeed an economist. I don't even work in fashion, although it is a rather compelling interest of mine...
