Veiling reflections

Yesterday ended up being rather quiet as my friend, who’s b-day we were attending, had hurt his leg. So, we didn’t end up going dancing but it was still a good night hanging out with the friends.

Knowing that the night might have become a quiet one, I had dressed up in the most comfortable gear which would still be party approved. The DRK SHDW shirt is a find my boyfriend made in Sweden but for some strange reason, handed it down to me. Somehow I have a feeling that he’ll end up wanting it back after seeing how great it looks on me (haha). The sheer mesh dress is also from Sweden, it was a quick purchase decision made without even trying on the garment, and even though it was a total impulse buy, I’m really happy about taking it home. I love how it creates another layer on the skirt, making it almost like a veil of darkness that is covering my body. I can’t wait to play with it more!

The last paragraph of this entry shall be dedicated to a lamentation about the fact that I’m totally over the winter season already! I hate how it restricts you from wearing what you want, say, these boots for example (damn slippery roads and snow!). Please spring, can’t you just hurry up and come already? We’ve been waiting for you…

Shirt: Rick Owens DRK SHDW

    1. Thank you, I really can’t wait to use it for layering more often. 😉 I got only three items from Weekday, this sheer dress, men’s cardigan and a the hook miniskirt on -75%. I felt that there wasn’t too much discounted stuff left and not too much spring items out yet either.. Monki as such was a huge dissapointment with the materials and shapes.. Usually I’ve been able to find something from there.. Am I getting old or just picky? Hmm..

  1. I’m exactly the opposite…I love winter. Instead of not being able to wear what I want, I wear everything I want to and just layer it up!

    1. Depends what kind of winter you’re having heh.. When it’s way too cold and constantly snowning, it’s hard to look good. When people are on the streets, everyone looks the same with their huge winter coats.. I love fall and spring because it’s not too hot to layer but it’s not cold either. 🙂

  2. I love Weekdays’ creations too , they’re way more affordable than high end fashion brands
    and yet always look fresh. I really like what you did with the net dress and the skirt, very creative..

    1. Thank you so much. 🙂 I completely agree with you, Weekday a great place to go shopping and their creations are always quirky and fresh, just like you said. I can’t wait for the Weekday store to open here in Finland (it should open during the spring)!

        1. We have been waiting for Weekday to arrive here for the longest time, too. 🙂 The only thing I’m worried about is that now everyone has the access to the clothes…so they will become “mass”. They were much more unique when you had to get them all the way from Sweden. 😉

    1. I hear ya, I remember when I was working in the States, I was missing all the good stores in Europe… But you got some good stuff over there too, especially the second hand stores are unbelievable!

      My boyfriend will be very happy about your words, I will tell him your regards. 😉

    1. Thank you. 🙂 I love the effect it creates as well. Heh, I’m actually wearing a sheer dress under the Rick Owens shirt which is my boyfriend’s, he doesn’t wear dresses. 😀 But I think I’m not going to give the shirt back to him… 😉

  3. i’m so sick of winter too… new york is really horribly cold also these days, and i love layers and tights but just want to go out without a huge coat or without worrying about ruining my shoes in the snow/slush/puddles/salt/etc….

    1. Cool, I knew you would approve. 😉 The mesh dress is really versatile, and I’m defintely going to play with it and figure out different ways to wear it… 🙂

    1. Thanks! I’ve been wearing these boots like every single day and they have no signs of wear and they are so durable, even in -20C.. Such a great find! 🙂 However, I really do hope this winter passes soon, so I can start wearing my others shoes as well…
