Brooklyn Vintage Safari

by Elsa Termenon on October 21, 2011

Yesterday morning I slowly woke up realizing the sun was finally shining again after the previous days grey skies and showers. What a perfect day for heading to Williamsburg and do some vintage shopping! I left my hotel in the Meatpacking District and after a quick breakfast at Le Pain Quotidian I was as ready as [...]


Burgundy & Blue

by Elsa Termenon on October 5, 2011

A new season is here, a chill is in the air even though the sun is still shining. Finally it’s cool enough to layer up in hats and scarves and to switch that neon manicure to a darker shade. I love how fall makes me wear more accessories, it’s just so much fun to play [...]


Vintage patchwork blouse

by Elsa Termenon on October 3, 2011

How many shades of burgundy, purple and red do you think there are in my closet? Not enough apparently! I should probably not buy more clothes in these colors, but how could I resist this vintage patchwork blouse that I recently found at Beacon’s Closet? It just seemed to have my name written all over [...]


Saturday in Williamsburg

by Elsa Termenon on September 18, 2011

Today I’m back in Philadelphia again after almost a week on Manhattan. I have a lot to share with you from the past week but I thought I’d start by showing you some photos from yesterday when we headed over to Brooklyn and Williamsburg. One thing I love to do is to grab my morning [...]


My red vintage dress

by Elsa Termenon on June 20, 2011

My astrologer in India told me that I needed to wear more red, it was apparently the best color for my personality and I can’t disagree – red has always been one of my favorite colors. It makes me happy! So with that in mind I wore this red vintage dress on Saturday when we were [...]


Magnolia Blossoms

by Elsa Termenon on April 9, 2011

Today was the first day of this spring that I’ve been able to wear a dress without tights, it’s been such a warm wonderful day! I ended up wearing this top to toe vintage outfit for brunch with my parents who arrived from Sweden yesterday evening. The dress is a 70′s neon paisley dress that [...]


Tuesday in Madrid

by Elsa Termenon on January 25, 2011

Today our embassy visit pretty much took up our whole day so we didn’t do much besides enjoying a long and delicious breakfast buffé at our hotel and to wander around in the Barrio de Chueca in the morning. So in lack of photos from my day I thought I’d at least show you what [...]


New Years Eve

by Elsa Termenon on January 1, 2011

I had so much fun last night celebrating New Years Eve with my husband and our friends here in Phila and I finally got the right occasion to wear my Miu Miu dress that I got in Italy this summer! I love how it goes perfectly with my 70′s vintage shoes from Beacon’s Closet (which [...]


A tropical X-mas

by Elsa Termenon on December 26, 2010

Here on Isla de Mujeres, Mexico we’ve had such a relaxing and great time over Christmas! We’ve enjoyed the sea, the terrific view from our terrace, numerous margaritas and some seriously delicious sea food! Not your typical Christmas holiday so to speak. I have started my mornings early with some meditation and yoga overlooking the [...]


Vintage in Winter

by Elsa Termenon on December 9, 2010

This weekend the weather suddenly turned cold and I guess you can say we officially have winter here now. I have been stocking up on my winter essentials for a bit now, the coat I got on Ebay in July to mention one. I also wanted to show you some of the things I got [...]
