What a great vacation! I absolutely loved the trip and I can’t believe it was only a week.. We did and saw so much – it felt like I taveled for longer. The sun was shining every single day, blue sky and it felt nice and warm. Milano’s fashion is just so great, women were dressed so tasteful and chic. Next to my regular stops like Marc by Marc Jacobs, Massimo Dutti, Zara etc. I found two new cool shops I fell in love with. The first one is called “My Closet” and is a multi-brand store with really artsy, funky shirts. I got an amazing shirt from “Happiness is a 10$ Tee” for only 24 Euros! Then I also found a pretty in-expensive store called “Subdued”. They had really cute, almost kid-looking, things and more importantly: great fabrics. Lots of angora, cashmere and wool. Also I got a suuuuper cool pair of studded leather boots in a small boutique in old-town….
Anyway, as romantic and wonderful Milano was, we had to leave! On our way to Ljubljana we stopped in Trieste and had lunch by the sea. Ljubljana really surprised us! It’s so small, but there’s so many young people hanging out in the cool, trendy cafés Ljulbljana has to offer. We stayed in a really exciting place called Meltkova, which is an area “without rules”, so it’s very punk. We went to an amazing underground party in an occupied factory… It was truely incredible!
Now I am planing my next trip… Probably Chicago in April 🙂
Two days ago I went to see 22 pistepirkko at chelsea. They’re a finnish band that has been playing together since 1980! Originally they started out as a punk-band, now they’re more rock-indie style. One of my friends noticed that the lead singer sounds just like Jack White from the White Stripes! FM4 featured a couple of their songs on the FM4 soundselections.
They’re not my favorite band in the world, but I still thought I might enjoy some Songs at the show… I did! It wasn’t super exciting, but also sad to see only 50 people or so showed up.
Anyway, there’s not many good bands coming to Vienna the next couple of months. Too bad!
