7 Days of Dresses: Monday

This week, every day, I'm showing you one dress from my wardrobe. Four day dresses, two cocktail dresses and one Sunday dress. Hahah! This idea came from net-a-porter, their advertising newletter, to be more specific. But I thought what a great inspiration for me. So here we go! Monday Dress below.


Tällä viikolla raotan teille vaatekaappini ovia ja esittelen 7:lle päivälle 7 mekkoa. Tarkemmin sanottuna 4 päivämekkoa, 2 juhlamekkoa ja yhden sunnuntaivaatteen. Sunnuntaivaatteista olen puhunut aikaisemminkin, nämä ovat niitä ns. äidin suosikkeja eli konservatiivisia ja siistejä. Tässä siis viikon ensimmäinen!

In My Beauty Box

Gosh, how frustrating it can be to find a fragrance! Anyone who's already found theirs - I'm totally jealous! I love love loved Escada's Moon Sparkle couple of years (or maybe more) back. The only bad thing was that it's seasonal, so of course that one and only fragrance was MY fragrance. Ok, so I ordered it online (in bulk) but no I can't find it anymore anywhere. So - I've been in search for the perfect fragrance. They all give me headache or just smell... wrong. But maybe - maybe I found it ... The Big Pony Collection by Ralph Lauren for women. They're my kind of scents. I like! (...and hopefully I won't get a headache since I bought two at once - hehe)






 

Tuoksun löytäminen on ollut todella hankalaa... Sen jälkeen kun Escadan Moon Sparklea ei saanut enää mistään, olen ollut hyvin epätoivoinen. Kaikki kokeilut ovat johtaneet ällötykseen tai vähintään päänsärkyyn. Nyt kuitenkin luulen, että se taisi löytyä. Ralph Laurenin Big Pony collectionin tuoksut naisille miellyttivät, joten ostin samalla kaksi! (Toivottavasti näistä ei tule hedaria... heh)

Style Tip: Inside RZ's Head

The top stylist shared her vision for this Spring in Who What Wear. (I thought that maybe you would be interested.) I personally love her style tips, they're very 60's vibe influenced, an era I totally like. Also, the fact that being a bit unpolished makes the look complete is cool. Kind of parisian chic (and not so American)... so suits me well. In addition, it's always nice to know how the designer sees something to be worn. When you have a look at a clothing, you get your own inspirations for creating outfit but it's different when you get inside someone else's head.


source: Who What Wear
Rachel Zoe jakoi visionsa kevään asuista Who What Wear -lehdelle. Kyseessä olivat luonnollisesti kappaleet hänen omasta kokoelmastaan. Mielestäni on aina hienoa päästä suunnittelijan pään sisälle. Asujen luomisessa jumittuu helposti omaan turvalliseen tapaansa ja toisen näkemys saattaa auttaa yllättävän paljon! Varsinkin kun kyseessä on Rachel Zoe, jonka tyyli heijastelee 60-luvun viboja aika epä-amerikkalaiseen tapaan rennon huolettomasti. Tykkään! Ja paljon.

Officially hooked on Pinterest

Are you in yet?
Gosh, how addictive Pinterest can be...but at the same time, so useful. At least for people like me - who in any case create vision boards and "waste" their time browsing through magazines and pictures on line to find outfit inspiration. And how easy it now is! I'm wondering when the overdose comes - or does it? I hope so... for my health's sake.
Anyhow, one picture above others is very very popular. This one - have you seen this one? I would like to know the origins of the photo... that's the downside of Pinterest. When someone doesn't put the source, the photo just spreads and there you have it - one day you find yourself in every single blog and Pinterest board. Oh well, that's the Internet age.

found from here, here, here, here and here at least
Oletteko jo Pinterestissä? Siellä jos jossain saa ajan kulumaan. Toisaalta "työkalu" on hyödyllinen tällaiselle tyypille kuin minä, joka joka tapauksessa kerää vision boardeja ja hakee inspiksiä netistä sekä lehdistä. Haittapuolena kuitenkin se, että kuvat leviävät ilman lähdettä. Hyvänä esimerkkinä tämä yllä oleva kuva, jonka löysin mm. pelkästään googlaamalla hakusanat "Pinterest" ja "pink blazer". Nina Carcian Pinterest-tililtä tämä on otettu jo yli 700 muuhun boardiin.

#PFW

Paris fashion week means the end for the fashion month. And it ends with the great names such as Chanel, Alexander McQueen, Valentino and Louis Vuitton. After last fall and Marc Jacobs' spectacular carousel, LV show was the one I was looking forward to most. With high expectations.
And oh Yes, it was insane! An actual train with all the models inside arrived to the catwalk. In addition, models were followed by porter carrying their luggage. Wow!

In Paris the great fashion pieces don't end on the runway shows, they're all over the town - the streets are the catwalk. 


Mila Kunis, Kristen Stewart, Olivia Palermo

Stella McCartney brought some very cobalt blue pieces to the runway. And I like it ! Cobalt blue must be the new beige.

Stella McCartney Fall 2012 is blue

Everyone is talking about...
Anthony Vaccarello's collection with Karlie Kloss, Joan Smalls, Arizona Muse, Anja Rubik and our very own Suvi Koponen (among the big names) on the runway. On Style.com it said about the collection: "The right magazines will want to shoot them, and the best celebrities will ask to borrow them."

Lily Donalson, Joan Smalls, Suvi Koponen

...And Stefano Pilati's last show for YSL.


With or without "real" Creative Direction, Christian Dior collection was fabulous! I loved it!

Pick of the month

Sneak Peek to my closet 


During this time of the Spring (okay, so March is a Spring month even though we have snow on the ground...!) the SS collection advertising campaigns start to appear on the magazines. I loved the Louis Vuitton show and the collection for SS12 and I love the ad campaign just as much. (Hopefully we will get those lovely white shoes to Helsinki store as well, fingers crossed.)
So, this is the color palette for this month... silver, mint green (kind of metallic as well), lemony yellow... All I'm missing are the white shoes ;)







My graduation dress from 2009

Yllä tämä kuun väripaletti. Rakastuin Louis Vuittonin kesä 2012 kokoelmaan ja rakastan heidän mainoskampanjaansa myös. Mintun vihreä on ihana yhdistettynä valkoiseen ja hopeaan! Enää tarvitsen nuo ihanaiset LV korot... tulisipa niitä Helsingin kauppaan. Fingers crossed.
