On voices, questions and answers


zara coat

photos by tasha

I wore my new zara shaggy fur together with the outfit from a few days back.. I wanted it for ages and came across one lonely one hanging on the rack in the sales! it whispered my name... or maybe that was just the oniomania noises in my head.. probably. Anyway for 39 pounds, quite a great buy right?

also... I get asked a couple of questions quite often, so I thought I'll answer them for you..

what camera do you use?
I use a canon 500D mostly with the standard 18-55 mm lens. In some of the photos from last fall (here, here and here) I used a 90-300 mm. I'm getting a canon 50 mm 1.8 lens tomorrow, for better portrait photos, as I'm always running low on the light, especially with inside shots..

where do you study?
I am on my second year on a fashion design and marketing degree at london college of fashion. The course mainly focuses on designing for specified retailers/markets, you get to do projects with design development & construction supported by marketing reports. If you are interested in studying something similar, I recommend taking a shorter course before so you get the idea what you are getting in to.. check more here

where are you from and what languages do you speak?
I am from finland and speak swedish and finnish, besides english of course. Swedish is my mother tongue as finland is bilingual. You are welcome to comment and contact me in any of these languages!

hope that helps a little to some of you.. over the weekend I will still tease you with one last thailand post.. have a great friday night everyone!

I love how lots of us bloggers have the Zara yeti jacket, but it's fun to see how we all wear it differently.

Glad you had a wonderful time in Thailand ... I was so envious seeing your pictures! See you soon at LFW x

The Canon 1.8 is a great lens for portraits, you'll love it. Also try a Tamaron 10-24mm, for a bit more money, but its amazing for wide angles and street portraits. Love the coat!

Girl Twin Exchange said...

hi, I'm new here ^_^ just wanted to say that your blog is so unique compared to many of the other fashion blogs i stalk. I love that your face is rarely the focus of your images...it gives them a mysterious editorial vibe that few other bloggers have really managed to master like you have. Your fashion sense is also quite a bit more developed (which now to read that you are studying it makes total sense) than most other bloggers as well which I find so inspiring and refreshing. ^_^ Anyhow, cheers, keep up the sterling work!! love it!

I absolutely love your blog! I'd wish that you could publish outifts more often, but I understand that you probably have a life beside the blog ;-) But, keep up the good work :-)
I also wonder; since you speak/understand sweedish, do you understand norwegian? :-)

thefashionguitar.com said...

You look amazing!! I was just now in the ZARA and thinking about buying that coat, cause my black long hair faux fur gilet (also ZARA) melted when hanging above a heater this weekend... so sad!! Anyways, long story, but you gave again a great inspiration, so maybe I will buy it!
