66000 volts


american apparel hat
primark dress
zara bag
zara jacket
zara clogs
lapponia & marc jacobs rings

Found this little alley just off bond street while shopping in london a few days back.. the amazing thing is that every dumpster back alley around here looks like this, and makes my daily photo sessions really easy..

I decided to have a little Q&A so if there anything you would like to know.. you can ask.

also thank you to everyone who's taking part in my giveaway! It's still on until sunday so scroll down to participate!

i know you said you were crimping your hair to be all out 90's inspired by the aqua dress. but i really love the texture! i am always trying to find new things to do with my hair--it adds that much more to an edgy outfit.
thank you for the inspiration!

crazy beautiful!!

Roya + the Machine said...

In LOVE with the dress.

Question for your Q&A (I hope it's not too personal):

What do you do for a living? How does it affect your ability to afford the clothes you buy?

I'm just wondering because so many fashion bloggers seem to have fab new things all the time, and I can neevr afford to shop that much. Any tips or tricks?

Oot siis suomalainen? Oonkin sitä aikani miettinyt, mutten kehdannut kysyä ... :D
Kysyn englanniksi niin muutkin ymmärtää.
Q&A : What do you do in London? and how you did you got yourself there? Do you often visit to Finland?

Anonymous said...

You must have a pretty wealthy family if you're going to school in London and are still able to buy so meny nice (and expensive)things?? Lucky you, must be a great student's life.

Jonelle M♥ said...

You find such amazing places to take photos :)

As for the Q & A:
-What made you decide to start blogging and how do you find the time to keep up with it?
-What inspired the name of your blog?
-How often do you go shopping?
-Your style is so unique yet classic, what/who would you say are your biggest influences?

I've recently started reading your blog so I'm not sure if you've already done this but can you give your readers a peek into your closet?

Sorry lots of questions there but I find your blog so interesting :)

cecylia said...

I am so happy to see the long dress trend back- you look amazing!

Jonas said...

Besides the how tall are you and what do you do for a living questions. do you speak any swedish? I guess thats pretty common i finland, right?

MELISSA Z. said...

Love all of this outfit! Awesome dress and amazing hat! Great! woooooooooooooow! <3

Sally said...

I love how you take items from primark and make them look so high end! Like that primark blazer in your other post, you make it look so chic!

Q: I often wonder how so many bloggers have so much money as it seems they are hauling every other day! Are you endorsed by companies, have a high paying job, or come from a wealthy family? Sorry if that is too personal but I am a hater! hahahaha.

Franco Fernandez said...

ah i love this dress! it duidnt fit e right so i had to take it back WAAAH WAAH! loving the hot wuith it, totally HAWT outfit! Franco xx

Lauren said...

Anonymous said...

Dear Jonas. You are mistaken to think lot of people in Finland speak Swedish. How meny people in Sweden speak Finnish? Just asking... From what I've understood Sandra is Finnish-Swedish so she speaks both languages.

Hey Sandra!

Love your blog and just wanted to know..

- What´s the biggest difference in dressing, between Uk and Finland?

- Why did you choose to study fashion in London, did you apply to any school in Finland (fe. Taik)?
