first days in Obertauern

Some pictures from the small, cute town + something I wore to the local supermarket. 

So excited I finally got to wear my snow boots, mom has a similar pair that I used to steal back in the days.. Got these ones from a secondhand store in Finland.. Not everyone loves them but thats ok, I do.

Striped


gina tricot knit
din sko boots
zara bag
chanel tattoos

It was a quick stop at London on friday, just to change the content of my suitcase. Later we arrived at Obertauer, Austria, where I will spend my easter skiing.. The place is absolutely beautiful and I already have some amazing images I’ll post soon!
 
These pics where taken in Finland a few days back… As you can see the sun was so bright I had to spend the whole week with my eyes half closed, but not complaining about that though.
 

Happy Easter everyone xx

I got this coat a few months back... It doesn't really look like a high-street buy and I am treating it as my baby... Spotted it last year in several mags and visited topshop everyday to see when it was in. My wait was rewarded, the straightened black hair-like fur is perfection.

... and the bride wore Wang


French connection dress
aldo shoes 
Chanel tattoos
Lapponia ring

Pictures from the beautiful wedding that took place in Helsinki on saturday. To be honest I did not know which side to take in church because the groom was a relative, but I was more involved with preparations from the bride's side. I designed the red bridesmaid dresses, but was a little nervous about the turnout because I did not have a chance to see the finished dresses live until the bridesmaids walked down the aisle... Luckily all three looked gorgeous. I might also had a little something to do with getting that amazing Vera Wang 'Diana' dress (and matching VW invitations) over to Finland... 

It was a beautiful wedding and we all had a lot of fun! of course my night turned even better when I catched the bouquet...

I could not decide what to wear until half an hour before the wedding, but the Chanel tattoos were planned long before... don't they look amazing? I want to wear them all summer long!

These pics were taken a while back, this week has been so warm and springy, almost too hot to wear a jacket!

I have been looking for the perfect trench for a long time and I came across this lovely all saints one as my friend was talking of getting rid of hers... the draping and shape.. perfect. Also decided to take the Cholés out for a little walk.

Untitled


Martin Margiela dress
bebe shoes

Very exciting news... My favorite design house Martin Margiela is finally releasing their perfume, (untitled) in the UK! The fragrance was exclusively sold at Colette in Paris from January and next week it will finally be available in London!
 
Untitled will launch at Selfridges 25.3 and is rumored to be given it's own display window. Later it will also be sold in other stores.

Can’t wait to smell it and either way, it’s going to be on my shelf.

And oh, I got this Margiela dress a while ago and it's from the 'replica' collection. So remade from a Parisian 70's dress. It's strongly competing to make it in to my all time favorites...
love. love. love.

Signs of spring

fashionology bird skull pendant
Lapponia ring

I am now back in London, looking through my pics from back home... I was lucky to see the sun on everyday of my visit and there was clear signs of spring after the -30 degree winter... Finland looked prettier than ever on the day I left and it was the perfect timing for a few pictures...
