The dark midnight blue pant



Shirt and pant are made by me and the shoes are from nelly. I do know these pants are slighly too long for me but I kind of love it so... Wide leg pant will be a trend fall 2014, I am quite sure.

majestic and chic

current working on...



Currently I am doing two projects at once. Both are summer garments, so I really want to get them finished before autumn comes around. Also both of the garments are tops (one long sleeve and other short) made by white twill. I was thinking to have a summery, fun and just cute style to these shirts.

The short sleeve top that is under construction (picture on top) is just gonna be a simple shirt but I want to add some really cute bows on it, it will also have small interesting details in the sleeve area.

Now the long sleeve shirt is gonna have these beautiful roses on it. I am a little unsure of how it's gonna look exactly but hopefully it will look really nice. The fabric that I'm using for the roses is shiffon, I think it's the perfect fabric to make roses out of as it just looks so nice, I tried making roses with satin fabric but it didnt turn out so good... So I think I'll stick to shiffon instead. Click here for the tutorial of how to make the roses. (Now isn't this shiffon just fabric porn?! It certainly is to me, hahah)

The selfmade rib dress. Finsihed result



As the title says: this is the finished result. I am quite happy with this dress, I think it looks cool. And it took me forever to figure out what kind of embroidery I wanted on the dress... And then sew every palette also took some time... But now I am done and going to the next project of mine. (It involves flowers and bows)

Shoes are from Nelly (sold out)

The best of: July



Young And Beautiful also known as Jeune Et Jolie. I randomly found the trailer on youtube and had to see this movie. The movie is, briefly, about a 17 year old girl who becomes a prostitute, she meets men online and then meets them to have sex for exchange for money. I like movies that aren't about that tyical love crap, boy meets girl, boy saves girl, does everything for her bla bla bla... This is diffrent and I like it. 

I am a huge skins lover, and recently I found (HOW DID I NOT KNOW ABOUT THIS) out that there were new episodes showing what happend to some of the charathers from season 1&2 and 3&4 (their grown-up life). And in the first episode this song was playing and I really liked it.

Celines Fall Ready to wear 2014 has to be my favorite. I wasn't really impressed by the spring collection but this is amazing. I get so excited for fall just looking at this collection. The love the bags, the fur on the arms, the hemline is perfection and the color palette is perfect.

See the whole collection here.

Magnificant silk and wool-blend gown from Victoria Beckham. What a chic and timesless beautiful gown, it's seems so simple yet perfect. I'm in love.

Draping from now, the 2000s and the 1500s



I wanted to get some inspiration and ideas for my new project. So I looked through some Atelie magazines, they are russian, im not sure if they exist in other countries too... Anyhow, this magazine is so genius, wish it existed in English, would be easier for me to read. The magazine contains pattern from garments today in garments from 500 years ago. Very interesting seeing the construction of those type of garments. Also the magazine contains the best pieces of designers, interesting new designers, fabrics, fashion history and even how to draw.

Shingo Sato, who is a couture designer who designs for private clients and teaches in both Milan and Tokyo, specializes in a design technique called TR. His work is really interesting and very inspirational. 

My biggest inspiration Alexander Mcqueen. 

Beautiful gown from Dior. Heavenly layering, imagne how many meters of fabric that is... Lucky rich designers who can afford that much fabric.

Some of Yves Saint Laurent work.

Translated from Russian: Second rococo fashion or the Empress Eugenie. Now how is this not inspiring, I could just stare at the details of these georgous gowns forever, wonder how the hell this work of art is even possible to make.

plaid skirt - jeans jacket - puma socks



Can't believe that half of the summer vacations are actually over and in about a month school will start again. That's pretty crazy. But I am actually very motivated to start school, it's my last year and I just want to get it done and move (to London and start at UAL).

Anyhow, my outfit. I was going for a simple sporty look, with the white plaid skirt and the white puma socks. The sleeves on the denim jacket are "fixed" by me. I only see now the one sleeve was curled up... Typical.

Rib dress and new fabric

I recently finished my rib dress. And I am happy with it. It's a dress I could wear everywhere really, it's not too "bizarre". I will soon take outfit photos with it. Very excited to show you guys how it looks on me!

Furthermore, I have also purchased a new really nice fabric. It's really hard, witch I like a lot, like a table cloth... But it drapes so well, and has that Jazzberry or even Maroon kind of color witch I really like.

What I regret now is that I only bought 1 meter, that will not be enough for a dress. But oh well, I'll just have to figure something else out to use the fabric for...

Fall 2014 couture favorites... and not so favorite



... so far. I found Chanel the usual,  (OBS: I'm being brutally honest hear, but I doubt Karl Lagerfeld or any other highly respektive designer will ever read this so fuck it) the models looked very short on the runway photos, I don't know if it was the flats or the camera angle or whatever but these models kind of looked like midgets... But still of course the detailing and couture work was worth a million bux. No doubt about that.

Valentino, classic, beautiful. Christian Dior, also very classic and beautiful. Jean Paul Gaultier, very dark, interesting, but did not catch my eye overall. Viktor & Rolf, red, everything is R.E.D...

Now my favorites. Masion Martin Margiela. Damn, this guy knows what he is doing. Not only does Kanye loves his designs I do too! (That must mean alot to him, who cares about Kanye...) This was really pretty! I felt like there where tree mini collections involved. And 80% was old curtains with pretty bling bling embellished on. And it's not a bad thing, it's very creative and cool!

Next is Giambattista Valli. This collection was just beautiful. To me it seems more like a spring collection with all the flowers but the fur made it more fallish I guess. The tailoring was amazing. The headpiece made it really classy. My favorite of all these looks has to be the striped black and white draped dress to the left. And also notice the necklace on the white dress, how beautiful is it?!

Striped shirt and PJ pants



Have you noticed the pajamas thing going on, Hannili Mustaparta did it... So I though it was cool. I found some old pajamas pants of mine and wore them like a proud trend follower even tho they where very thight around my thighs, I guess I have grown a little since I was 12... The shirt I am wearing was, on the other hand, too big and I had to tie it... Oh, well still like this look even tho I remind myself of these guys :)

A little fashion dilemma

What would complete my summer outfits perfectly? White sandals defenetly would. And I really want some but witch one should I choose?

down on the west coast, they got a saying...

                                                         I can see my sweet boy swayin'
                                 He's crazy y Cubano como yo, my love

On the balcony and I'm saying
Move baby, move baby, I'm in love

I'm in love (I'm in love)
I'm in love (I'm in love)

Down on the West Coast, they got their icons
Their silver starlets, their Queens of Saigons
And you've got the music, you've got the music in you, don't you?

I have liked Lana del Rey quite alot since I discovered her music. I think I first started to listen to Born to die, and then I just found more and more music that I liked. Lana has this 80's wibe witch I think is really cool! And she doesnt say bitch or swear after every other word in her songs... She is deffenently something diffrent in a such a typical pop music world. On my bucket list is to see her live once, that would be incretable. 

Hence I had to check out her new album Ultraviolence. I only liked West Cost and the song Ultraviolence on the album. But then again I am a person who needs to listen to a song a couple of times before I actually start liking it, so this might change. Have you checked out any song of Lana del Rey's album Ultraviolence? 

Paris diary part 1



I was in Paris about two months ago, and though I'd share the pictures I took there and tell you guys a little about my experiance there. What I saw, what I conquered, you know. Hahah, no, but it was a really fun trip even though it only lasted a week.

Though, I also discovered that this is a nice city to visit, but I don't think this is the place for me to move. I have had a dream to move there for quite a while. But it just wasn't for me... And it's not like I don't feel comfortable in very big cities, it was just that Paris wasn't really my kind of place I guess...

This was an old church, it was in the Grand Opera area, witch was in the area of our hotel. And I though this chirch had this gotic vibe about it and I had this feeling like there where ghost inside or something. Hahah. The architecture of the church was simple beautiful, like most buildings in Paris.

Arc de triomphe and the Eiffeltower is a must see in Paris. It was really amazing seeing these places in real life. These two places where pretty crowded and this was in early may, I can't imagne how many people there must be here in the summer.

One of the five days in Paris I went to the "fashion" gallery, Papier Glace. I expected to see more clothes but it was mostly photographs. But there where a few garment by designers that was exhibited. The dress on the photo is my Balmain.

This is part one of this post, stay tuned for part 2 I am going to post it as soon as I finish it :) Have you ever been in Paris. How was it for you? What did you like/dislike?

The girl who loved horses



I love being in the woods. No people. Only me and the beautiful horses. I chose to wear something white and flowy for these photos, feeling like some kind of angel who lives in the woods, heheh :) The horses where totally curious of what I was doing and looking at me, hahah.

My outfit is a long sleeve shirt and a skirt, they are both vintage.
