Breakfast with Phillip Lim

Last week I stopped by Selfridges to welcome Phillip Lim to London, in the from of a breakfast get-together in his very own pop-up shop. I was given a little preview of the AW collection that will be in store from July, while Phillip himself took the time to talk to his guest, enthusiastically demonstrated the functionality of his 31 hour bag range that you already know I am a fan of. The black zipper clutch might just be the most perfect little evening bag I ever came across, definitely my next splurge.

I’m starting my weekend early and heading to the Canary Island tomorrow, check back soon for sunny updates!

Minty Lace

Hello from Devon! I visited this peaceful side of England over the weekend, who knew we have beaches like this just a few hours outside London? Insanely beautiful.

Later I wore my new DVF dress (available here and here in the US and here in UK) that I could not resist buying because of it’s perfect coat like shape, what a great little match with my silver shark tooth! Not exactly the ideal outfit for a weekend away, but with my schedule you take what you can get... The shark tooth makes it a little more ok, right?

Triple x

Photos from getting ready for a super fun party I attended in Finland a few weeks ago. We celebrated the launch of Vitaminwater’s triple x flavor in a Noir themed party at Bläk in Helsinki - from now on my favorite place to party at whenever I am in town. We had Misshapes DJ’ing us through the night and I was dressed by the great Finnish designer Jussi Salminen! How beautiful is that human hair clutch? Available here in black and blond.

A million thank you’s to Jussi and to Silver for having me at the party!

It’s been all catching up for me lately, getting back to my routines has been slower than planned. This weekend I am traveling out of town to shoot my sister trying out the waves in England, I even rented a zoom lens to test, we’ll see how that goes. But regarding my attempt to get somewhat back to the routines, what would you guys like to see more on 5 inch and up?

Chanel, Celine and the styles in between

weekday coat
zara shirt
gina tricot jeans
alexander wang shoes
celine bag

I found a new site to love, think a narrowed down ebay, only brands and just fashion. Yes that is Vestiaire Collective, a site where you can buy or sell, let’s call it recycle, your designer items. That means that you can find Birkins, Chanel suits or like in my case - a Celine for much less. Best of all, the items go though a check which takes away the fear of buying a fake. Try it, but try to not get too hooked.

I came across this bag around the time I realized I’m lacking a classic little black strap bag, so I’m thrilled to now be the owner of my first Celine. I would be willing to say that it was worth the investment, but in this case it was more of an impulse buy. Definitely one of my best.

Wearing my new earrings that I lusted after here a few weeks ago.. Nowadays by the time I put up a 'want' post the items tend to already be in mail... I’m so weak.

The main reason for my trip back home was to meet our new family member Lily, it's crazy how much she looks like our old dog Bon Bon, I'm even teaching her all the same tricks. I completely forgot how much joy a new puppy can bring.

weekday pants
miista ‘ori’ shoes

I decided to extend my city getaway with a few days, which means I’m running out of things to wear but then again the plan was never to spend that much time dressed here in Finland anyway. So here we have yesterday's, I even forgot my jewellery box home which sometimes can be quite a good thing.

Shoe-wise I’m back to clogs, giving my toes a break form the sweezy pointy. Not sure how long the break will last, but I’m sure loving my new cut-out Miistas, that also is out in a beautiful off-white.

Summer by David Koma

photos by me

Some backstage shorts from David Koma’s spring collection that I found in my archive. The collection was so beautiful that I felt the need to post these, although the next AW collection was shown months ago. How perfect would that white ensemble be for a fancy summer party, or just in general to have in one’s closet?

dreaming continues, if you feel super tempted a few dresses are listed on Luisaviaroma.

Listen up River Island

While we are on the subject of pretty pointy pumps, I remembered this photo I took at River Islands press day a few months ago. I was already planning outfits and praising the best high-street shoes of the season, when I found out they have been dropped from production. So sad, right? I think we need to try to make them happen! Now who's with me?

Back to a better feeling

After spending the day in the city, me and my sister stopped by some seaside streets to snap these. Helsinki has been sunny, beautiful and quite brilliantly mad lately as we host the ice hockey world championships this year. I wore basics including a beautiful ice cream colored knit from Muriée that worked as a kind reminder to never underestimate the comfort of cashmere. In this case even organic cashmere, so good for more than just my being.
