This is an spread from The Last Magazine, photographed by Martin Lidell and hello, it's all I need to make me forget this current magazine rut. And all the ruts I'm in, I just want to listen to this song, Friday Nights by Diamond Vampires and get Alexandew Wang knock-off shoes and kinda listen to The Strokes in sun and have vodkatonics and stuff...you know...grow my hair long, sulk, love nothing...read fashion magazines and forget what real love is...reference lyrics from songs I've never actually heard...forget that I have gazillon words in all of my lines here, against textbook rules and makes it all so hard to read, ouch, I should know better. I've been watching Beyonce's videos all day, Diva is awesome oh and tomorrow I'm seeing Fever Ray and then on Thursday Girl Talk and then on Friday there is FAG YOU! @ 6 linja with NIYI and DINOSAURUXIA and a Wednesday club somewhere and I'm basically very excited about this week, all I need is those AW knock-offs, vodkatonic, long hair and some random The Strokes tune. And to make it so that there's 16 words on every line, because I read in on parkandcube and it makes me angry if I have something wrong, you know? I guess this page takes hours to load too, but, oops, there goes my shirt up over my head, oh my...I love that song.

I get wherever I'm going, I get whatever I need, while my blood's still flowing and my heart still beats...
Karen Elson by Autumn de Wilde for Rodarte Fall 2008
I'm just too in love with this, not to forget Metric's song Help, I'm Alive.
Just too in love with life because I have nothing to do yet still I find myself more exhausted than ever, waking up at 1.30 am to Sigur Ros, must've left the radio on when I couldn't follow the lines of The Brief And Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao anymore, or my friend calling me and asking me out which I don't mind but damn I don't live in the city. Could it be, could it be that being happy actually takes a toll on you? It only sucks because I forget to wash my make-up off. The thing about friends and books is that eventually they will forgive you for your neglect unlike your skin or suede boots daily wet in snow. Important life lessons that almost make me forget some people have real problems...

I loved this afternoon and these are some of my favorite pieces right now. A second hand Zara jacket, a hood thing my grandma made me and one for my mom when I was in 5th grade, a dinosaur that shines in the dark, Antti Asplund's cross in this spring's colour, white jean cut-offs, a black vest underneath the jacket that is delicate looking but I've broken someone's ring with it and just a basic long sleeve that is made out of that Rholyvon and keeps me suprisingly warm.
One morning I was hurrying to school and had lots in mind and then I accidentally fell because I didn't watch my steps when there was a gap. On my knees, blood everywhere, on my Wolford Velvet De Luxe 66s. My favorite tights, expensive and all, ripped. And I wasn't even drunk or wearing heels.
One night, I was having fun, really fun in a bar with nice people and wearing a shredded shirt that after one wash had turned into more like a dress. Anyways, it kept getting stuck in peoples buttons which I found funny. And once again, in the dancefloor it got stuck on some guys back-pocket button. I discreetly tried to remove it and the next thing I know that guy is twisting my index finger with all his power and yelling at me about stealing his wallet. And I'm just standing because I don't know how to react to a situation like that and I found it rather funny if it wasn't for the fingertwisting part. So I mumbled something about my dress...and you know, I don't think he looked like a person who has any idea of the shredded phenomena...and started to cry. He later apologized though but one thing is for sure, I'm never wearing anything shredded to a bar again. Ever. Because my finger still kinda hurts, though I still find it funny. I've said the word funny too many times but that situation, I mean, fashion victims of the world unite...
This clip is from another good afternoon, when DINOSAURUXIA was playing in a place with lots of comics and records. Someone commented that she/he was supposed to come but his/hers chinchilla got sick. I hope the chinchilla is better now and all of it is up on youtube anyways! The song they are playing is one of my favorite songs of theirs, The Law Between Human and Machine, better known as Mind The Gap. It's got disco potential.
AND THERE IS THE AWESOMEEEEEEEEE PLANET DRESS!!!! I'M GOING TO LIVE IN IT COME WEEKEND!!! The other, equally awesome, dress is from Antti Asplund's Fall collection. Huge thanks to him for borrowing and to this dude Tommi from the comics store for taping this and all!!!

This is my friend Ossi who works as a SA at Wunder, a designer boutique here in Helsinki. He's so hot he makes the ice caps melt plus Wunder has recieved amazing spring stuff like uhm all he is wearing. I wouldn't really mind to own those kTz pants, last season they had a grey jersey dress with the same cables going on. They have one pair left of the pants (tight-fitting L) so be quick if you want to snatch them up. Like I said, I would love to, but life isn't fair at times.

And old i-D editorial with Shaun Haugh. Has anyone else had Depeche Mode's Wrong on repeat for the last weeks? I was born with the wrong sign, in the wrong house...Love it. I've fucked up with my school but it will turn out alright. I have lots of books to read...history, the final exam is on 11th which came as a surprise for me and I haven't started yet. I was supposed to but then I found like 15 blogs with amazing photographs and style and then I had to manage and then I thought I also want to update my blog so basically I've spent all my day on computer and I even did something to my phone and it won't work properly. But it's alright, the sun is shining and Acne's SS lookbook came in the post and it has Iris Strubegger and Block shoes I dream of. I actually dream of lots of Acne's shoes...I could just sleep all day with these dreams.

It's somekind of house music party or something, but we'll have everything from PSBs Love etc to drop your pants to SPOCKs best hits so it shall be cooooool, Iceage Babeland-cool.
