pure genius

I read a great article on Isabel Marant on this months UK Elle. She seems so down to earth, creative and nice person that I just had to revisit her 2010 f/w ready to wear collection. So gorgeous!

What I love most about this collection is that its so wearable, I can just imagine all the stylish girls sporting sparkling leggings, boxy big jackets, loose grey shirts and blue jean shirts this fall/winter... And oh I just loooove the lenght of the trouser/leggings, looks so fresh! 

What do you think?

fun fun fun

Here's some photos 
of our fun weekend at Flow Festival here in Helsinki. 
But god was I tired on Monday at work... 
after just 2 hours of sleep! 
Oh well, I was surprisingly upbeat the whole day.

My outfit for day 2 (and yes, I'm wearing my curlers in this pic)

 The festival area was lit beautifully

 M.I.A was awesome! 

 This weekend I'm learning how to make sushi, should be fun... 
Till later sweet readers xx

making of

I love seeing what goes on behind the curtains of a fashion shoot. Zara frequently shares their photos on their official facebook page.

Few of the photos are from the summer collection (the first four to be exact). But I can't wait for the new collection to hit the shops!

PS. I have to admit I already ordered boots for the fall (and summer isn't even over yet, I know!!). But they were just what I wanted.... 

Over the knee boots, La Redoute

See you next time! xx

bags, dogs and gray nails

I need a new bag... so I went to to get some inspiration!

From top to bottom, left to right: Lanvin, Mulberry Bayswater, Proenza Schouler, Mulberry Alexa, YSL, Lanvin 

And bonus round.... The funniest bag I've seen in a long time!
The real doggie bag by Judith Leiber 

You who get the WhoWhatWear newsletter know this already, but I wanted to feature their trend report about grey nail polish.... What do you think? I'm totally up for it for the autumn!

Thanks for stopping by! xx

after work bargains

One of my vices is to go shopping from work, mainly cos on my way home I pass all the good shops... Today I just had to pop in Zara and did some bargain finds

Cardigan 7 euros 

Leather bag 45 euros 

So I put up an outfit for work tomorrow, just something relaxed and comfy (thank god my workplace is really laid back and don't have to wear any kind of uniform). 

Cardigan and bag Zara, shorts Gant, sandals and white top H&M
Accessories: second hand watch (and a golden necklace but couln't find it for the photo!)

What's your favourite outfit for work?
