Now, where is my Swedish bank account...

15 November 2009

There hasn't been a lot of Monki love on here for a while but believe you me, it's still there.  The site is still as whimsical as ever and the clothes are just a bit more interesting than your usual high-street fare.  I know I'll soon be catapulted into the world of American shopping (hello Forever 21), but that won't stop me forgetting my favourite European brands.  In fact I'll be stalking them from afar.  These are the bits that I would buy, if I had some Swedish Kronor to hand...

All Images found by here.  If you do happen to have a Swedish bank account, do you know how much this might cost and can I pay you back in monthly instalments?

I love the shapes, prints and quirky details  they include in their clothes (such as the sleeveless black shirt above with so much layering potential), which remain reasonably priced.  The imagination behind the design team is incredible; what other high-street brand would create it's own land straight out of a modern fairytale, involving bugs and high-rise buildings? I'm also fond of their dancing Lookbook, which I could probably watch all day. 

I'm not sure if they will ever open in the UK (please, please hear my pleas) but they have a few new stores in Germany, giving me a reason to visit my aunt who lives there.  I'm sure she'd like to drive roughly 100 miles to get all my future Christmas and birthday presents.  Let me know what you like from their new collection and whether you live within a 500 mile radius of a Monki store.

I was also given this lovely award by Oranges and Apples, a fellow knitter!  Thanks again, and I pass it along to:

London Rose
Diamond Canopy
We Scream Style
Tan Shoes with Pink Shoelaces

  4. hi there! Great picks and thanks for coming by and for the lovely comment. Hahaha yeah if I were in New York, I would have to stay home and never leave to stay on a shopping ban. Defintely IMpossible. But congrats on your move, I'm so excited for you! I have yet to go to NYC but believe me, the day I do, that city is going down, I am going to shop that place dry! LOL

    Good luck with the moving!

  5. I'm so jealous your going to be able to shop in F21! I have an online gift card, but am hesitant to use it because the shipping is so insane.

    Love your Monki picks :)
