So this is the new year and I don’t feel any different

My New Year’s outfit doesn’t sparkle or shine but it is, once again, inspired by Givenchy’s fall/winter collection (I honestly think I will never stop being fascinated by it). The ruffled sleeve button up is on me for the first time after I purchased it back in November, same with this tulip/diamond shaped skirt that I got from Sweden. The shape kind of reminds me of the fools outfits back in the renaissance days with its exaggerated “side wings”.

Shirt: Comme des Garcons for H&M
Skirt: Monki
Shoes: Vagabond
Belt: Second hand
Ring: Kalevala Koru

If you remember my Xmas wish list, you might recall I was lusting over the Givenchy open toe strap shoes. Well I didn’t get the real deal but I did find these amazing shoes from Vagabond while shopping for Xmas gifts with my boyfriend. They kind of have the Givenchy feel with the open toe/straps combo but with much less heel. My feet will thank me after all the dancing that I’m planning on doing today.
Happy New Year everyone and see you next year!

  1. That skirt is amazing, new Years is still 12 hours away where I live, no idea what to wear yet!!

  2. Your skirt is AMAZING! I hope you had a wonderful celebration and wish you a happy year! I hope that slowly you will get through your loss.

  3. Upea asu ! Kengätkin juuri sitä itseään, täysin kokoelman hengessä mutta käytännöllisen korkuiset.Mitä materiaalia ne ovat ? Oikein hyvää uutta vuotta sinulle ja myös jaksamista arkeen.

  4. Amazing skirt! Very chic design. I´ve wished I could find a pattern similar to this so I could make one for myself.. 🙂

  5. Ooh, kuinka kadehdinkaan tyylitajuasi! Eli näytät (jälleen) upealta :)Kiitos muuten musanostosta, oon kaivannu repertuaariini jotain ton tapasta. Viime vuodet on tullu perehdyttyä niin intensiivisesti suomalaisiin uutuuksiin, että nää ameriikan meiningit on jääny ihan huomiotta.

  6. You look beautiful! Many blessings to you for this year. Sending a big hug your way! the death cab reference.. it’s quite fitting for me too, actually.

  7. Eyeleah: Thanks! Hopefull you found something cute to wear for new years, well I'm sure you did!:)Winda: Kiitos! Death Cab <3Fashion therapist: Thanks!Fruchtzwerg: Thank you. 🙂 My New Year was rather relaxed but I did go out and party a little. Gotta get my mind off things you know. I think the recovery will happen in time just have to take it step by step.Cafe noir: Juuri niin!:) Kerrankin hyvännäköiset, ei täysin knock-offit, mutta samaan suuntaan ja todella mukavat jalassa! Matsku on synteettistä, mutta sisäosa on nahkaa. Jalat voivat hyvin tanssimisen jälkeenkin, suosittelen!:)Shandi: Kiitos ja kiitos samoin! :)Outsapop: Thanks! I think the best way is to just try to make the pattern yourself but I can imagine it can be a little tricky. Good luck with the project!:)Aya: Oh thank you, you're so sweet!:)Suna: Thank you, it's good to hear that!:) Hope you can get those shoes too. :)Anna: Voi kiitos ja ihanaa, että Death Cab kolahti. 😉 Kannattaa kuunnella ihan kaikki albumit, huonoja biisejä heiltä kun ei ole! 🙂 Jos laulajan ääni ja musatyyli kolahtaa, suosittelen tarkastamaan myös bändin nimeltä Postal Service. Sama heppu on mukana myös siinä kokoonpanossa, vain hieman tanssittavampaa kamaa. :)Juliet: Ditto!:)Jennie: Thank you so much Jennie! 🙂 *Hugs* to you too. Death Cab is the best! Hope you had a good new year!

  8. Happy new year, Darling! That skirt is TO. DIE. FOR.And no worries, I wrote you up as being one of the very few on such a cutting edge that your outfit from a year ago is still sharp as ever.I’m sorry to hear about your great loss. I have a feeling that 2009 will break the curse.

  9. Lydia: Thank you Lydia. :)Sina: Thank you. Sure. :)Amber: Happy new year to you too! Oh, I was already a bit worried.. I’m glad you liked the outfit. 🙂 Thank you, let’s hope that 2009 is better for all of us. 🙂

  10. The six sick girls: Thanks! Yeah, maybe I will bring it over there one day.. ;)Rissa: Thank you. 🙂 I don’t feel so lady like usually but for new years and parties I gotta make an effort. :)Ciara: Thank you. Yeah, that’s what caught my eye too when I got it. 🙂

  11. Anonymous: Kiitti, ne on kyllä ollet tosi käytännölliset ja ihan unelmat jalassa! Ostin nuo pari päivää ennen joulua Forumin Vagabond-liikeestä. Itse kun en käy niin usein Helsingissä, niin en tiedä onko noita vielä jäljellä, mutta kannattaa käydä katsomassa. Näin noita samoja kenkiä Tukholman Vagabondilla puoleen hintaa, voit arvata että ketutti. 😀
