Bag cravings, Proenza Schouler PS1 and Chloé Marcie

Bag cravings, Proenza Schouler PS1 and Chloé Marcie

I'm in serious bag fever. Dangerous disease, probably not going to kill you, but medicine (i.e. THE BAG) takes all your money. I would like to have a neutral color bag and this smoky grey is really tempting. But is it too boring? Other options would be beige and natural white.

Then another first world problem, big or small? Proenza Schouler's PS1 in medium size would be optimal for everyday use, for work, for leisure etc. As would Chloé Marcie bag in medium size. Then again, Chloé Marcie Small Shoulder Bag would be sooooo cute... Too hard!

Look of the day, loving blue and red heels

I love blue. It is just my favourite color and I could wear it in all shades. Today I wanted to pair my FCUK blouse with my favourite dark denim jeans, and my new red heels <3. I have to say that I DO own other jeans as well, but I tend to wear only 1 or 2 for certain time. When I get bored, I switch. Or even wear a skirt :D! Do you think the look is boring with so much blue?

I was wearing:
Jeans: H&M (I promise to have some other pants next time :D)
Blouse: FCUK
Shoes: Carma
Belt: Massimo Dutti
Watch: Michael Kors
Jewellery: Banana Republic

Look of the day, beige knit, dark skinny jeans and leopard clutch

First of all, sorry for the horrible lighting in the pics. It is getting harder and harder to get proper light inside this time of the year in Finland...And it it getting worse. Maybe I should invest in extra lighting or smthng to get better pictures. Try to hang on kids, there will be some improvements!

This outfit has been my favourite this autumn. A beige warm knit, dark skinny jeans, leo clutch and black heels, with some gold shade jewellery. Sooo simple, but still kinda classy, at least to my eyes. What do you think?

I was wearing:
Knit: KappAhl (I know, I'm shocked! Have not bought anything from KappAhl in years, but never say never...)
Jeans: H&M
Leather jacket: Oakwood
Leo clutch: Accessorize
Shoes: Bronx (old)
Belt: Massimo Dutti
Watch: Michael Kors
Jewellery: Banana Republic

Look of the day, stripes and navy blue

I'm totally in love with my Filippa K knit, it goes practically with everything. It is sleek, super soft and warm. I bought mine in June, and the model is so popular that is has remained in Filippa K Autumn Collection. Or something like that :) Nevertheless, you can still buy yours (and I warmly recommend you to do so - you won't regret!).

For example, you can buy your Filippa K knit from Zalando (surprise surprise ;D).

Jeans: H&M
Jacket: Gant
Knit: Filippa K
Belt: Massimo Dutti
Shoes: Vagabond
Necklace: Banana Republic
Watch: Michael Kors

On sale: Louis Vuitton Monogram Shawl

I'm selling my LV Monogram Shawl. It's 2 yrs old and it is in good shape. Reason for selling? Just not using it anymore, and the shawl deserves a better owner, one who wants to carry it with proud everywhere :)!

September fashion inspiration + cravings - red pumps

Just recently I read Chiara Ferragni's blog "Blonde Salad" and I spotted one particular look that got me excited. Or to be honest, it was all about the shoes; red pumps. 

At that very moment I rushed into Zalando and started looking for the perfect pair for me. I think I found one...and ordered them, whoops ;) I gathered this look around the red pumps. What do you think? Love it, like it, hate it?

1) Carma Shoes
2) Oakwood leather jacket
3) Print T-shirt (this is my own design in Spreadshirt)

Look of the day, statement print t-shirt

This is actually my look from last Saturday, when we had had a beautiful summer weekend here in Helsinki. Maybe the last one in 2013 (autumn and winter are soon on their way)?

I really do like silk tops but sometimes they're too neat. And as this was my day off from work, I wanted to wear something casual, like print t-shirt. I paired it with denim jacket and camel coloured skirt.

My look

Skirt: Sand (OLD, I have bought it maybe in 2002!)
T-Shirt: Spreadshirt, my own design
Jacket: Gap (also OLD, maybe from 2001 :D)
Belt: H&M
Shoes: Campbell California from NYC
Bag: Olivia Harris
Scarf: LV
Watch: Michael Kors
Necklace: KappAhl

Look of the day, cowgirl meets Chanel

Well, the jacket is not actually Chanel, but close enough maybe? It's at least 4 years old, but I really like it and it's kinda timeless. I wanted wear it with something not so classy, and as a result I ended up pairing it with "cowboy" clothes; denim shirt, dark blue skinny jeans and brown boots.

My look
Jeans: H&M
Denim shirt:H&M
Jacket: From Tokyo, brand is called Ropé
Scarf: LV
Shoes: Vagabond
Bag: Mulberry Bayswater
Belt:Tiger of Sweden
Watch: Michael Kors

What do you think of the look? I liked it, it has some autumn feelings in it, and it feels very me :)

New in September, shoes and jewellery

I do not buy new stuff very often. Actually, these days I am trying to buy less and utilize my existing wardrobe to its full potential. That said, I'm TRYING. But like all women, I'm regularly having those days when I do not have anything to wear...

I have been looking for black boots with moderate heel and low leg height for a while. Not too classy but not rock, difficult combination. Well, just when you're about to give up, the luck might just kick in. I was just roaming around in the Helsinki centre after work and tadah, saw these in the store window and at the end of the day came home with these Your Face boots. I did not even know that Your Face had shoes...Well, you live, you learn :)

At the same trip I went to H&M to buy some socks and I bumped into this lovely peace of jewellery. I liked the clean and masculine shape of this one, so this also came home with me.

Ballerina cravings

Cravings just continue. Sunglasses cravings are not that bad at the moment, 'cause I found a cure for that, whoops ;) More from that later! But my current cravings are ballerina flats...

Yep, spring and ballerinas, inseparable combo. I love ballerinas and could walk in ballerinas all the time. Too bad the weather in Finland is not that suitable for all-year-round walking in ballerinas...

Girl should NEVER visit online stores, it never eases the urge to buy are my current darlings from Zalando. (no, have nout bought a single pair - yet ;D)

Pics from Zalando

1) Buffalo Ballerinas (Pink)
2) Buffalo Ballerinas (Beige)
3) Buffalo Ballerinas (Black)
4) Hirica Zoe Agneaux Ballerinas (Beige)
5) Esprit Alma Venice Ballerinas (Black)

I love simple, classic ballerinas, in basic colors like nude and black. Like real ballet shoes :) Any other ballerina fans there?

Spring, sun and sunglasses

Spring is definately NOT here in Helsinki, but I'm already feeling it...and it always makes me wanna buy new sunglasses. And not just one pair, but several...because I'm a greedy bastard ;)

My favorite list include Ray-Ban Aviators (at the moment I have size large, gold frame with black lenses) and now I'm very much tempted to buy the medium-sized Aviators, with gold frame and brown lenses.

My face shape is nothing but right for the traditional Ray-Ban Wayfarer's but I've recently discovered that the Folding Wayfarer is slightly different from tradional Wayfarer, and it actually suits me pretty well. Traditional Wayfarers are slightly cat-eye-shaped whereas Folding Wayfarers have bit more roundness...Gotta have 'em, and in biggest size of course :)!

Maybe I should order both, Aviators here and the Folding Wayfarer's here! 10% off from your first order, not bad...
