Red wool blazer I bought in middle school, second hand old Sisley shirt with no collar and awesome French linen jacket I gave a chance once and I think it is worth the 15 euros. Plus Monocle Mediterraneo I keep going through, because I'm planning a trip to Italy for next spring to visit my friend who is either going to study Arabic in Napoli or fashion in Treviso...
Best Sunday chill outfit hands down: grey cashmere, black jeans and golden statement ring. No possibility to fail. And yes, as a photography student, I just have a huge urge to post photobooth pictures.

Jil Sander SS11 (second image), three things that stuck to my mind: Psycho theme, Busta Rhymes and 60s Marimekko and especially the work of Vuokko Nurmesniemi (first image). I have some Vuokko basics from second hands...all black and without stripes though. And I kinda regret for not buying a basic nude long robe that I saw a week back but luckily there are nice Vuokko pieces laying around second hands now and then not too seldom. Prada also showed stripes and bold colours, nice Italian revenge for all the white moving things that has been Spring Summer 2011.

I don't get to wear coats and heels around here...which is a D I S A S T E R because my whole fashion mental health depends on statement coats and high heels. I mean, that French grey minimalistic wool perfection that I bought when I was 16 and decided to wear now keeps my serotonin levels up there. AND KATY B! I LOVE KATY B! Also a total disaster because you don't get many raves around here and I heard acting all-grown up is the new black. Oh wait, what am I even wearing? Back to listening Nine Inch Nails...
Ancient beanie, secondhand shirt, jewelry and coat, Only jeans, Zara shoes.

Say hi to trippy photos of new shoes!
We had a lecture about Chinese theater yesterday and power went out so for a while we were there, in candlelight. It was beautiful. And they wear pretty awesome shoes in the theater performances, Francisco Costa was inspired by similar design couple of seasons ago. What else is inspiring...well, reading Peter Mayle's A Year In Provence I guess! And attention to details, always. That's very important. Words to live by: "Astonish Me!".
Ps. new awesome photo up at Flickr.

So I guess these are my high school graduation photos by Sinikka Konttinen. Love you!
Today I took a day off from my current school. It sucked. All I did was pat my new heels and look at moving trees. I guess I just had to do it to discover that no more. I also recieved a magazine with my face inside. I realized I am beautiful even with make-up done by a 10-year-old kiddo. Lets see if it counts for anything. Then I also scoured some SS11 and put myself on map what's in for AW10. I was so frustrated. Isn't it what me and my best friends wore like two years ago? Why do people take their fashions so fucking chewed? And why do I wait for the seal of Acne to wear my most fucked up second hand finds to feel like a somebody? Anyways...it's a beautiful day out there.

Shooted in our school's studio for about thirty minutes with fucked up lights and came up with this, bon week-end everyone! I am going to catch up with NYFW (heard that white and a certain desginer I have to mention in every post is in) a little bit and shoot some black and white film. I'm also trying to read Sagan in swedish but for some reason I noticed that it's harder than Bret Easton Ellis in swedish, I guess I should just change back to fashion magazines...

Laura on our dorm floor
I just wanted to write it down somewhere that I am really frustrated and just pretending everyone I am having super fun here. Of course I am enjoying, that's not the problem, but it's just hard to not do things without a camera and a laptop when you are studying photography, it's hard to get an semi-ok job without connections or looks and it's super hard to also achieve self-confidence if you have a really shitty way of looking at things! Last week a friend of mine said "I'm a bit concerned if you view the world like this..." which is true so I guess I need to do an reality check, oh, this is the reality...being pissed about reading how someone's dad bought their mac and then being more angry at myself for not working a shitty job to get things I need because I expected that magically, my situation would some point change to better too. Alas, well, yeah, I am not blogging from NYFW or wearing dope original Helmut Lang, and I guess there is a dilemma between feeling happy and actually getting what you want that I just discovered two minutes ago.
Anyways...I just really would've loved to start my term in Stockholm University but I've become to know myself and I probably wouldn't have been happy there either. I just crave validation so much, though it's so much bullshit, kissing in the rain, all that.
And these are such bullshit problems but bear with me, I'm just another blogger.
But I mean, look at that photo, it's just like I learned how to use photoshop clone tool and had a really bad love affair with it....except that I just did learn how to use it. Too bad, too bad...

My favorite pieces right now that I've been waiting to wear this Autumn: shearling wrap DIY, Jil Sander blazer vintage, Katri Inkeri hair bracelet, Vagabond wedges and satin pants from friend. This picture was taken right next to our school actually! Me and Laura certainly enjoy the atmosphere very much, we took some dope pictures I'll post when Laura has given a little photoshop touch-up to them.
This is what my inspiration wall looks like:
Guess which picture I've taken? Hint: the development chemicals were old.
Also snapped this picture from my Martin Margiela exhibition book:
So glad I got the chance to see the exhibition during my stay in London and that I bought the book. Good inspiration investment!
Enjoy your life, polish your shoes and oil your purses like they were your babies, listen to a lot of Magnetic Man, Kingdom remixes and possibly a little new jack swing there in the mix and read some Sagan, I'm off to watch probably a fabulous episode of ANTM...

"It’s much easier not to know things sometimes. And to have french fries with your mom be enough." The Perks Of Being A Wallflower
"He can drink too much and still, while standing in a bar parking lot at 3 am, discuss the world with such passion and good sense that you actually stop imaging him nude and really listen." Roseanne Barr on George Clooney
“I wanted to write about the moment when your addictions no longer hide the truth from you. When your whole life breaks down. That's the moment when you have to somehow choose what your life is going to be about.” Chuck Palahniuk
"With creative decisions, it is very emotional. It's not about togetherness. It's the fight to reach the point at which whatever you're creating is strong enough to fight you back. Then you just have to let it go. You are the only one who can really decide that." Helmut Lang

Hey guys, I was wondering if I'd send this picture of me for Only's 15th year celebration (MAD LOVE TO COPENHAGEN) to Ford, would they take me to their plus size roster and I'd be the next Crystal Renn? I'd love to make my first million with hair conditioner and deodorant commercials...But yeah, I'm wearing Only clothes (for a brief moment I really had a thought about stealing that leather jacket from the set) and my own jewelry: leather and wood bangles I've picked up from second hands and golden rings I wear to make myself feel noveau riche when it's needed -- white limos and endless trays of champagne are fine by me, seriously. Of course I would also enjoy the money for plane tickets because I'm going to miss mad crazy all my friends who just moved abroad. And a Brequet, Birkin, you should just see how excited I got after I found Amedei's chocolate 9 from my drawers, I only care about the best, though nothing's the worst except nervous breakdowns after realizing the world's best chess player is a 19-year-old boy from Norway. Fuck you Magnus Carlsen, go out with me.

Today I learned how to use flash....not. But I took some pictures of Laura with her temporary pink dip-dye and cut off silk shirt. The cut off thing is going to be huge also, better recognize. Lol.

PROENZA SCHOULER X HARMONY KORINE : ACT DA FOOL
"I think the stars hold the secrets. The stars be shining at night, bright as hell. They say look at me, look up here, I'm up here. They call out, we love you girls, we really love you. We would never leave you. Just be good to one another. You can make it out this dead end town. FUCK EVERYONE ELSE. The world want us to be happy and I trust the stars."
Oh man, there are so much pretentious fashion films around nowadays...this might just be one of them but at least it's different and not that polished to perfection and one I can actually relate to. Anyways, there isn't going to be a stop of these collaborations any time soon, Ryan McGinley X NOWNESS and so on, so it's pretty safe to say that it's the format 2010.

Yo guys. I dip-dyed my hair on Monday. It's going to be huge I tell you, like the new Chanel nail polish shades, so deep. Yesterday I got an email that I would've gotten into Fashion Studies in Stockholm University. I guess it would be really fun to be rich at the moment and just move to Stockholm into some luxury apartment but I'm going to apply next year, I am a happy bird, happy happy bird. I think I just might take a walk in the park next to our school and just watch this one house that looks just like out of Italy and read something, basically pretend that I'm in a cheesy autumn love story film. I also started studying French all over again and developed pretty pictures at darkroom today and uh yesterday I drank rose and danced on tables. What else...next week I'm sewing an bomb-shaped clutch from dark grey suede.
