Why a Scandi Fashion Boutique?

I often get asked ‘Why a Scandi Fashion Boutique?’ Why not British, or another ‘world aesthetic?’ – I’ve talked a lot about why Scandi Fashion is such a great, flattering and versatile look for women over on the Scandi Fashion Guide; today I wanted to share with you more of my personal story – of how I ended up falling in love with Scandi Fashion, the brands that introduced me to ‘the look’ and how I turned my passion into a thriving business…
