Princess dress up games à la lanvin


hm x lanvin dress
new looks shoes

Dress up games made easy by this beautiful lanvin x h&m dress.. not the kind of dress that I'll wear every saturday but that's not what I base my shopping on anyways - never have, never will. This red one will be perfect for the holiday season where overdressing is totally accepted - if not sometimes mandatory.

now I'm off to my cousins engagement party, where the dress code was 'something red'.... I guess I took that advise quite literally.

Shiny new things

Hey! and good morning from the airport.. I am having my morning coffee on a unusually quiet airport and had a few extra minutes to sit down.. I guess it's been a while since I traveled this early in the morning. I was up all night trying to pack but did all other things instead.. I never manage to sleep before I fly.. luckily I realised last minute that packing was easier than normal when all I really need for a weekend in finland would be my lanvin x hm dress that took all the place in the suitcase, still really love it and can't wait to snap a few photos for you... more on that later, here are some of my new things..

have a great weekend everyone and happy thanksgiving to the ones that get to celebrate it... x

Current best thing for cold day survival would have to be the combination of big knits and maxi skirts.. probably because you can wear half of your wardrobe underneath.. awesome, cosy and cute as long as you are outside.. not so cute when you find yourself sweating and rearranging the layers as soon as you step inside. 

naah I should stop pretending that I am not looking forward to the crispy cold days.. I can't wait to take out my hairy snow boots... I take it that chanel totally city-approved the yeti look right? Karl - the grandmas in finland applaud you.

Cold fall days call for layered knits and colors to match all the changes...

Shredded & painted

topshop pants
painted aa bag
second hand belt
aqua back-less blazer
zara shoes
lapponia and fashionology rings

I stumbled across a beautiful church after my lee klabin showroom visit a few weeks back.. the amazing t-shirt dress I'm wearing is another creation of carla from rouge et noir, similar to the one I wore here. But this one is longer, maybe even better.. either way a great add to my winter closet.

I have also utterly fallen in love with my halloween project, that would be the originally black clutch I painted white. My plan is working just the way I planned.. the paint is starting to crack and the soft leather is strating to resemble the look of old furniture.. and sence I'm always hunting those distressed, worn down interiors to my home, I wish creating the 'old' effect would be as easy as this 10 min. project...

I got a bit over excited about the idea and am working on another similar thing.. more on that later!

It's as far from spring as it could be.. I don't even want it to spring yet, but it's never to early to start planning..

At the Lee Klabin showroom


I had the pleasure of being invited to the Lee Klabin showroom! during fashion week I was caught up running around and I knew I wanted this visit to last longer than a quarter. So when I finally got the chance to view the collection, I was impressed with not only the story and inspiration behind the designs but with the soft stripped feminine approach and theme connecting every single piece from leather to sheer silk. I also had the privilege of playing dress up at the roomy brick wall surrounded showroom, where I tried on a few pieces that I would rather have left on than neatly placed back on a hanger... The spring/summer collection that I got a glimpse of reviled the usually hidden seams and details, that underpinned the whole concept of what Lee Klabin stands for.. feminine, simplified structure. Maybe we'll call it the new minimalism or rather minimalism 6.0.

Thank you for having me..
