Finally the rush is over and I can get back to normal life. It was fun, but a bit exhausting. I've definitely deserved the upcoming vacation and a trip to a certain city, have to buy the tickets first though...

Here's my little DIY test from last year I've shown before, but in these pictures a bit more visible.

jersey:Gina Tricot/DIY, t-shirt: Selected, leggings: American Apparel, boots: Topshop, sunglasses: mom's from the 80's


neon yellow tights

nothing too special here, but boyfriend likes this combination, so... I am quite content with the color combination, though. And it reminds me of the upcoming Easter (and vacation!).

too much work...

It's been such a busy few weeks and it's getting even worse. Nevertheless we're about to pop in a party, you gotta relax a bit, don't you. And blog a bit for your own amusing. :)

This is what I'm planning on wearing. I'm not too sure about the shirt though, I'm in a feel for something more "rock"...

Lip color wise I got inspired by the White Queen at the Alice in Wonderland.

shirt: Topshop/Strawberry Kats, leather overalls: HM Trend

"office worker...

...gone slightly bad"-outfit? This is (almost) what I wore to a dinner the other day.

suede sweetness

A bit more sophisticated outfit than the earlier one, although there is some same ingredients I have to admit. Those suede trousers are sooo comfortable!!!

suede pants: Selected Femme, t-shirt: self-made, necklace: Kaksi-två

Gone back to the 80's?

The temperature is still so low I got to use my new "fish skin" sweater. But the outfit wandered all the way back to the 80's, I think. In a bright day it also created disco ball -effect!

Here you can see the fish skin effect better...
And here the human disco ball!
sweater: Selected Femme, Jeans: Cheap Monday, shoes:from Stockholm...

And this so reminds me of 80's mid-west in America...
T-shirt: Weekday



I bought this necklace by a Finnish design duo Kaksitvå a short while ago. It looks like it's made of pieces of lace that are painted over, a wild guess though.  http://www.kaksitva.com/ 


gone crazy with Selected?

We were yesterday at the Selected customer evening with my friends and I do have to admit, I went a bit crazy with the sample pieces. But then again I'm very happy of all the items I got my claws into and there's no regret whatsoever, so no hard feelings, right?

Here's what I got. Every piece feels somehow so me, the different sides of too. The sweater reminds me of candy or soap bubbles or something like that, very girlie girl. But what I like about it is that the form of the sweater is loose and a lot less girlie. Navy blue sleeveless trench is oh so right for summer and fall season too. As well those suede trousers. The lace blazer is the only piece that gives me second thoughts, but I like the cut of the collars a lot, they give the material different point of view. 


mom's doings.

Of this outfit I'm especially happy to blog about. This sweater ,made by my mom, has been in way too little use. But now I've finally found a combination that feels right! :)

Have to hurry now!



And this is how the cave woman looked underneath all her outer layers. Had to add this, 'cause I like that gray sweater with those boots a lot. Also the color palette too.
sweater:Gina Tricot, jeans:Pieces, bag:HM

cave woman?

As the temperature hasn't risen as I wished, on the contrary we have a bit of a set back with the spring in my opinion, these pictures of a cave woman in extremely warm clothing seem to be appropriate still amongst all the spring waiting hype. 

I must say I like my lamb skin vest a lot. But in this combination with that long jersey it just turns the feeling of the whole outfit into a bit of a cave woman clothing. Or in a positive way - nomad clothing. :) I like it anyways!

And in an addition I must say, that the west is made by my mom of a sheep which lived a long life in a farm in the southern archipelago and was fully used to different products after it was killed. I like fake fur and second-hand furs (I think in this coldness that we've had, fur is the best way to stay warm and it's reasonable to use the furs that already exist), but I'm against new furs made of foxes etc.

boots: Gixus, fake leather jacket: HM, jersey: Gina Tricot, separate sleeves: from a trip to Japan, scarf: self-made


new dress coming up?

As I was browsing through the Vogue Collections spring-summer 2010 (numéro 9) this page caught my eye.
Karl Lagerfeld and Silvia Fendi have created a very feminine and easy collection. As Lagerfeld says in the mag: "I wanted a cloud on a summer day - lightness and transparency". And succeeded in it, too. I love the material contrasts and those colors from powdery pastels to black.

But what really caught my eye was this little brown number.

Oh, how I like the contrast in the fabrics, especially that heavy fabric in the skirt. And so I remembered one fabric I bought last fall of which I've been thinking of doing a skirt. The only problem's been (besides the lack of time) I haven't been able to decide what type of skirt I want, whether to do a graphical or a girlie one. So this was a calling to me as I have done something similar before - girlie it'll be. 


Spring in my mind

I got inspired by Sonia Rykiel spring 2010 colors and color combinations. Especially this one with light pink and a hint of orange/neon pink.

So this is what I came up with. 

silk shirt: second-hand, neon pink shirt: Selected Femme, skirt: Gina Tricot

p.s. didn't meant to compare those outfits -a far cry from it!- just to show the inspiration choosing those colors. :) Rykiel's airy girlishness is something I can never achieve.


The first thing I saw when I opened my eyes this morning was this. This day had a pretty good start, I'd say! :) Curtain fabric is "Pääsky" (swallow) by Maija Louekari / Marimekko.


I took my new black and blue shirt to my wanders. I like how it suits different moods, outfit from yesterday was a bit more rock as the second try-out with loose trousers is a bit more -well- artsy (as is my face, haha!).

my furry friend

As winter's drawing to its end, I got the urge to start documenting faves from past fall-winter.

This combination's been in quite a heavy use over the past winter. Actually I ended up in some sort of extended inspection in Berlin airport because of those shoes and that belt (and 'cause of my careless behavior).

The furry jersey is so warm and that's what we definitely needed past winter. It's from Gina Tricot. Trousers are DIY from old black jeans and belt is self-made from the scratch. And shoes are from Vagabond, again...


spring color

Peach/salmon pink/beige/nude -what ever you want to call one of past and ongoing seasons colors- has definitely taken over my wardrobe too. Well, at least one percent of it (nope, half percent) but anyways, after purchasing salmon pink shirt yesterday I realized I had some similar clothes in my wardrobe already... I like so many different kind of things, but sometimes this just happens, that I end up getting a few similar clothes in almost same color.

Couple of item to make my point - from left: shirt by Selected Femme, center: self-made shirt from last summer and purse by HM, right: secondhand silk shirt from 80's and self-made woolen scarf.

greatest weekend!

I had a wonderful weekend! My dear "old" friends were over here for a couple of days, so great! We did some (serious) shopping (as one of my friends put it - we were like sharks!), ate some great food, went hiking today as the sun was shining from a bright sky. There was definitely spring in the air already!!! This smile won't fade for a while!!! KIITOS TYTÖT!!!!

Here's a peek of what I found.

(almost) black and white week going on...

I got to use my own doings, this is one of the favorites at the moment and now I got a "better" shot of it. Yep, using flash light does bring out the colors, but it also manages to bring out every other detail too...
And Wanderer's been proven wrong, I did have this wine red in my wardrobe after all. Barret's my grandmothers, I think.


I have to include this almost similar picture, colors are all wrong, but I like the feeling in it. And the skirt looks its best at it.

skirt: self made, shirt: HM Trend, belt: Monki, barret: second hand, shoes: Vagabond, watch: Muji

Black and white week

I managed to through a challenge to myself without knowing it... It was just a coincidence I happened to wear black and white stripes in Wednesday and came to conclusion (almost) black and white was the theme of this week. Well I should put it black and (almost) white as Tuesday's shirt is in my opinion light pink. Luckily colors are something we can always argue about. :)

I must have been influenced by spring 2010 collections (sub)consciously. Picture's again quite horrible and had a bad hair day, but that's just life, isn't it?

bubbling under - wine red

 Seems to me we have a new (or another 90's?) color coming up - the wine red. This dark red has pumped up every now and then amongst all the blue/beige/nudes/grey/black and well... other colors. 

For me it depends on the material if I'm totally obsessed with it or am I still wondering if it's too strong some ways. I very much like those red leather pants seen in Diesel Black Gold. Also the way Marni has used it.  But in velvet I can't help but think of Christmas party clothes. Although in Wang's leggings both material and color look -um- new. This is probably the only color missing from Wanderer's Wardrobe...

All and all it's tough color to combine to, but here's some good examples.

Outfit from today. Seems like I have a (almost) black and white week going on...

outfit from yesterday.

Loads of grey for fall too! If wearing all colors is too much, Marc Jacobs main collection shows a subtle way of using color where he has added just a hint of color to otherwise grey combination. 

Plus another trend wide legged trousers... Instant need for a pair...

I love the color palette many designers have created for fall 2010. Just the use of colors is great, but the way they have use it combining monochrome pieces together or the simple patterns that bring out colors well. Burberry Prorsum, Marc by Marc Jacobs and Marni make great examples.

I do have to add that I very much adore the use of grey, black and nude shades in other collections too. :)
