Five favorites from London

I probably don't have to tell you that the shopping options in London were much better than Helsinki...You can actually spend days and days just shopping if you feel like it, and still you wouldn't get bored. I had a list of must-go-to's (like Cos & Whistles) and then I found accidentally couple of brands that were surprisingly wonderful.

Kurt Geiger




I love the shoes! I tried the aviator inspired buckled-shearling lined-platform ankle boots on probably five times but then decided that they weren't exactly made for the finnish winter (and streets full of slush). Too bad, I still feel like I'm in love with the shoes. Kurt Geiger has stores full of great shoes... I like!





Whistles is my favorite store! They have great coats, dresses and jewelry and everything. The style somehow reflects my style very well and therefore I always find something that feels like 'me'.



Russell & Bromley was a new brand to me that I had not heard of. I ended up buying two lovely pairs of wearable perfect heels. So comfortable and so cute! When I first put the heels on I thought I was in heaven (with 12 cms) so I had to have them! I can truly recommend since it's always hard to find quality heels.



Cos is a brand owned by H&M and the collection is minimalist + chic. Somehow it seems very french to me (almost like Maje but Maje is so much more to die for). From cos you can find great simple dresses, coats, trousers, shirts and jewelry. And some pretty ballerinas.




Jaeger. I had never tried on any of Jaeger's pieces before but since I was reading Vogue on my way to London and an ad caught my eye I thought why not go visit their Flagship store on Regent St. Especially their shoes were fantastic (if you could wear them in slushy Finland). They also have Jaeger Boutique brand for younger fashionistas. Pics below.

Organizing...

I get pleasure from organizing. I'm the kind of girl with thousands of to-do-lists (full of not-so-important stuff like organize your lip glosses...) This is how I like it to be, everything at their own place. Ta-daa!
 Eye shadows

 Lip glosses

 Nail polishes

 In the drawer


Jewelry at place

About girly stuff and biker jackets

Another favorite from New York fashion week for my style is Jason Wu. Everything is just so girly and glamorous! 









...But don't get me wrong. It's not all about girly stuff that excites me - Burberry Prorsum was once again so amazing! I was watching the live stream as the show was going on - everything was so wow. I guess there lives a little biker girl inside of me.






I really love the edgy new designs of Bailey and above I picked couple of my favorite looks. However, I must add that the comfort-aspect is also important part of how you look and the models looked like they were going through pain while walking. Obviously the heels were killers (literally) as couple of models took them off and walked barefoot and the finale model fell on her knees. Poor girl but luckily they've edited it out from the stream...

My love for Marchesa

Wow. Amazing, again... not a surprise. Do I need to say more? Marchesa Spring 2011 collection (presented last week during New York Fashion week) - Award season is still few months away but I'm sure we'll be seeing some of the dresses on the stars.








(im sure the pictures don't do justice - they're even more amazing in real life... )

P.S. Burberry Prorsum tomorrow on London Fashion Week - looking forward to that !!!!!
