the yabba-dabba-doo skirt

the yabba-dabba-doo skirt

the stockholm city mission run several successful charity projects, including a bakery, cafes and quite a few second hand shops.

one of those shops is a special gem, situated in the big cultural center (the ugly building where the swedish parliament was housed a while during the seventies) in stockholm city - it's a smallish, fresh and inviting shop that only sells cleverly upcycled second hand stuff and new fairtrade items. they make simply awesome dresses, tunics, skirts, hats, bags and superadorable children/baby garments from old clothes and fabrics people have given to charity. it's so lovely and inspiring it'll actually make you weep (if you're a softie).

for very reasonable prices they sell the remade things under the label REMAKE.

myself i've been drooling over a fabulous summer tunic for months, sadly it didn't fit over my shoulders. would still love to have it but it feels silly to having to redo it the first thing i do... it was still for sale there today... i can't believe noone has snatched it a long time ago!

what i did find there and HAD TO try on today though was this happyhappyhappy skirt - i didn't know i needed one until i saw it, seriously, everyone needs one!! behold, a yabba-dabba-doo skirt.

recycled material, handmade, clever and unique, the money goes to charity - shopping at its best!

have a yabbadabbadooastic weekend one and all ~

What a treat. A skirt to make you smile each and every time you wear it. Love it.
