March staples

I’m so not “à la mode”. I don’t follow fashion and most of my clothes are years, or decades old. I spend most of my time in yoga pants and big sweaters. But I do like interesting cuts and silhouettes, I like discovering designers who are passionate not only about their brand and sales but also about sustainability and new ways of creating beautiful, ecological products. And I like the power of colours. In March it has been mainly about smoky blues. Top picture: Vintage Longchamp bag. I got the edgy top one-of-a-kind by Lamda Alpha directly from the designer in Athens. COS cardigans have become a cornerstone of my wardrobe. The Zadig & Voltaire jacket is living it’s third spring now and the beautifully cut power dress by Année érotique has served me through many office-emergencies. The dream soft cashmere scarf from Sian Jacobs has been in so much use that I wonder it is still in one piece, I simply love it! The Dr. Martens’ were a genuine must-buy when I got caught in a snow storm in …

urban turban

No, this is not a picture of my great great grandmother. It’s me wearing my new handmade turban and testing how to post from my Lumia. I’ll share the instructions for the turban later, it’s easy to make and perhaps an idea for a Christmas present. The jacket is from Fift Avenue Shoe Repair.

forget the winter blues

How to stay awake in November, that’s the question. Well here are a few simple tips to get you through the darkest month of the year.

And sometimes treat yourself a little. Get creative: the internet is full of crafty ideas for xmas decoration or presents and now is the time to make them! Exercise: I know, it’s a drag in the morning but makes the whole day! Tea: try adding some ginger, mint, cinnamon or star anise to your favourite tea.And finally: Find some great people to share all or some of this with!

Comfort was my main goal when I was packing for Paris and I spent most of the weekend in one of my favorite jersey dresses, a big woolen scarf and boots made for walking.

how many black dresses?

While trying to decide what to wear tonight, I’m stunned by the number of black dresses in my wardrobe. I mean, it’s not that many, but I do have a few… Like this beauty from Filippa K. My mother bought it for me as a gift for my art exhibition opening a few years ago and here I’m wearing it for a photoshoot for Craze model agency, again a few years back. A little bit of nostalgy and fun memories on a Friday morning. I’ll keep browsing. Dress: Filippa K, Shoes: Miu Miu. Photo: Harri Asikainen
