Fashion in the Mail...

New ugglebo clogs & #marimekko dress combo
My new Ugglebo Clogs and Marimekko dress.
Wow!  Friday was such a great mail day!  I love getting lots of parcels in the mail, especially when some of them are unexpected.  I was not expecting my new Ugglebo clogs to arrive.  Aren't they just the best dark purple colour, they really go with all of my Marimekko dresses.  If clogs are your thing, then check our Ugglebo as they do custom orders and they are all made by hand.

Stamps on the box that my clogs came in... Too cute!
The gorgeous stamps on the Ugglebo packaging.
My gorgeous clogs arrived directly from Sweden packaged up with the cutest stamps.  I managed to peel some of them off the packaging to keep for collages.  It's a lovely way to remember where they have come from and seeing my work involves a lot of fashion images, it seems very appropriate to add how these great fashion items arrived to me.

Look what came to my door today!!! #clogsrock
Ugglebo Rocks!
Also, I am in love with the Ugglebo owl.  He (or she?) is quite adorable with his feathered ears.  They are definitely one of my favourite shoe companies.  I was also pretty stoked that my new shoes match my new Marimekko dress perfectly!

Omena Dress by Marimekko. Pieni Hedelmakor by Mika Piirainen for Winter 2011. Print by Annika Rimala.
This is one of my new Marimekko dresses.  I love the random coloured parts of the print, like a weird little surprise.  I'm also a huge fan of this style with it's large pockets on the side.  I may look like a child wearing it but it is so comfortable.  I usually get my Marimekko stuff from Kiitos Marimekko in New York City.  They are an independent store but they give the best service and ship to Australia too.  There is a bit of a push in the USA to shop small, local and independent stores.  I think that this is a great thing to do where ever you live.  I do feel a little bad buying this from New York but the Kiitos store does feel like my local as they know who I am whenever I am in New York.  In a way, I feel like a local!

I hope that you are enjoy the crazy clash of patterns here and all this beautiful Scandinavian design!
