Some catalog eye-candy

While I was still living in Germany, my favorite clothes were made by the Swedish company Gudrun Sjöden. I love the high quality of the clothes, the material and unique cut. Gudrun Sjöden didn't care what was trendy (still doesn't). Her designs have always been unique, colorful, flowing - simply beautiful in my eyes.

Then I moved to the US and had to say goodbye to my beloved Gudrun style (except for the pieces I still own). However, the last time I went to visit Germany, I stocked up on Gudrun clothes and I also got on their mailing list. Yes, they send their catalog from Germany to California! And only a few weeks ago I found out that the company actually sends their clothes to the US from Sweden if you order them there, and the shipping is FREE. Of course you have to pay in Euro - kind of a shocker, but so worth it.

Their catalogs are pure eye-candy. They often go to other countries for a photo shoot - I still remember a splendid fall collection shot in Morocco back in the 90's. A couple of months ago I received this catalog with a photo shoot in Botswana. The photography is so yummy, I simply have to share it with you.

Yes, I ordered the set on the right (shirt and skirt), I couldn't resist.
Needless to say that I don't look as stunning...

Somewhere I stumbled on their site and have rec'd a couple of catalogs. I love their clothes but have never known anyone who owned any. With your recommendation maybe I'll get brave and place an order one of these days.

Gorgeous clothing, Carola, and a photo shoot in Botswana? Fantastic! I'd love to see Botswana.
Thanks for a perfectly delightful post!

I've never seen...nor heard of this catalog. It looks like it - unto itself - is worth getting. What gorgeous fashion and art. I may just have to check this one out myself! (And - I bet you'll look gorgeous in that outfit...:-)!

OH I want them too, they are so me (inside if not outside)...some might look good on my short frame. They look so comfy and carefree. Enjoy what you ordered. I have to see how to get this catalogue. Thanks for sharing!!!
