My mum discovered Gudrun Sjoden somehow and has ordered a few catalogs over the last year or two. She recently gave them all to me as she was clearing up and I keep them in the book shelf by the bed for when I feel like getting inspired.
I don't love every single thing they have, but I do love the layering, the patterns and the stripey or spotted tights. I like the sense of cozyness and the feeling of dressing as you like. I have always loved layers and dresses over pants, colors and patterns and it is nice to get ideas since I usually wear just jeans.
It is also refreshing to see alternatives to the stiletto wearing career girl I am surrounded by in downtown Toronto. I don't have the energy for the maintenance that look requires. I'd wear my slippers to work if I could- bring on the cozyness!
