Dance classics

A few weeks ago I was asked to model for a poster of a new club night and since I’m always up for new things, I decided to give it ago. Here are some shots from that photo shoot session, shot by the talented Klaus Elfving from the Plauge DJ collective. I’m totally loving the whole 70’s vibe mixed with my modern clothes which pretty much sums up the name of the club, Dance Classics.

If you happen to be in Tampere on Saturday the 24th of April, you should totally come to Yo-talo for the Dance Classics night with good music and people. See you there!

A few days ago I was contacted by a talented Finnish artist called Katriina Kallioinen, who also runs her own comic blog called Bayxitykid. Katriina told me that she had started a new project featuring portraits of the Finnish fashion blogges and chose me to be the first target of her illustrations. Of course I’m very honored for this feature and therefore wanted to share Katariina’s masterpiece here on my blog as well. I think she captured my blog persona quite well, though I’m not as tough as it might seem. Anyway, I really like it. Can’t wait to see who’s next!

Caught by Elle

This picture is from last week’s Jimmy Choo for H&M VIP night, the Elle girls caught us right when we got in (hence my goofy face). I’m wearing almost all new purchases from Berlin, and this time my outfit was heavily YSL inspired (I can’t help it, every time I look at the gray peg leg pants, all I can see is the fab YSL fall 08 RTW collection).

To completely honest, I wasn’t too keen on the shoes of the Choo collection (most of them looked cheaply made and were too blingy for my taste) but what I was actually hunting for were the accessories. I really couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw how nuts people went over the designs, girls can be so brutal to one another! Luckily nobody was fighting over my picks, so I got out without any bruises or further damage. I ended up coming home with the double wrap leather belt and a few toned down bracelets, including the ones we got in the goodiebags (I got everything I was hunting for). The best part of the night was meeting up with the other style bloggers that were invited to this event, we had a blast!

A huge thank you for Satu and Jenni at Elle for the picture, more pictures of the stylish guests can be found here.

Dressed in black

A few weeks ago the Finnish Elle approached me, and asked if my boyfriendand I could participate in a piece about couples sharing a similar style. Along with two other couples, we said yes, and finally today the magazine hit the stores. As for the photos, we had to choose a party and an everyday outfit for the photo shoot, plus pick one of our favorite items.The whole situation was actually quite funny because we had both decided our outfits separately without consolidating each other, yet we ended up in very similar gear. I guess when you have been together with someone for such a long time, intentionally or unintentionally, you start to resemble each other, more or less.
