My first visit to a vintage shop in #Porto. I had heard about Rosa Chock before, but I had never visited. In fact it’s the only one in Porto, together with another shop owned by the same lady as Rosa Chock. My friend Mafalda took me there today. It’s located on one of the oldest and traditional commercial streets in Porto: Rua do Almada, smack in the city centre. The shop is quite unique in particular due to it’s interior design, and wacky random objects that lie around. Here are some fotos from the visit today. Rediscovering your homecity tastes like magic.

As is usual with this Swedish department stores’ street windows, they have new stunning decorations at the moment. Passed by their street recently and took some pictures of three of my favorite windows currently in the Stockholm store. They never cease to surprise passers by, who stop and appreciate the eloquent work & imagination going into their window shops.
H&M Pop-up Beach Store in the Netherlands to benefit WaterAid
A great innovative idea showing that this big fashion brand never ceases to look for new ways to be different, and collaborate with charities in new ways, such as this pop-store on a beach.
This year H&M took its support a step further by opening a pop-up beach store for two days in The Hague’s popular Scheveningen seaside resort. A variety of essentials for men, women and kids from H&M’s “Beachwear in Shades of Blue” line were available at the shipping container-style shop on the beach, and a full 25 percent of the sales proceeds went directly to WaterAid, according to a report on the Superfuture blog.
Found this article on my suggested links on Stumble Upon. It’s filled with crazy wonderful designs of high heels, so inspiring! This is when fashion becomes more of an art form for me, I might not use these fashion items, but I certainly love contemplating them, like the art you love.
