Marimekko is a brand I’ve been obsessed with forever- and for good reason! Not only do their bright colors and prints have PRIYA written all over them, this is a brand my mom and even grandma grew up wearing in Finland. Marimekko was founded in Finland in 1951, and exploded into a visionary design house in the 60’s & 70’s, with their iconic patterns (like the Unikko poppy) and stripes. I “earned my stripes” in the form of a Marimekko tee at a very young age, and fueled by many gifts from my Finnish relatives, my liking turned into a full-blown obsession for all things Marimekko (which I've blogged about several times...)
I totally flipped when Target did their + Marimekko capsule this past Spring (and bought all the things), and I’ve been known to recognize their prints on sight when people are wearing them. Naturally when I saw this skirt in a fellow Poshmark closet, I knew it had to be Marimekko, and I had to have it. Even better- I traded for this with a dress that didn’t fit me anymore. Buying and selling on Poshmark is grand, but trading is kinda the best- exchanging an item on it’s way out for something you’re dying to wear, yes please (I just traded for two more items last night!)
If you’re interested, you can shop my closet on Poshmark here. Sign up for Poshmark with code PWGSG and we both get $10 to spend!
This skirt paired with my Swedish Hasbeens felt like the perfect nod to my Scandinavian heritage.
Hope you're having a great week! I've been busy through and through, with work and life, so that's why you've barely heard a peep from me. But I'll talk to you soon :)
