Dressing up, is one of my pick me ups. Seeing people well dressed, is like going to an art gallery for the art lovers. I enjoy every moment of it. When I was a teenager, I changed my clothes about 3 times in a day. I did not realise this, until somebody pointed it out. I was so surprised , one might have thought he was speaking of someone else. I spent the past two weeks planning an outfit for a fashion show. I knew what I was going to wear but the pressure was on when I found out I would be on the front row. I love fashion shows! I love clothes in ways words cannot describe. I feel that dressing well can change one's life and even attitude.

The process of choosing what to wear for me is deep. I always try to connect with how I feel and how I want to feel like. Light, fresh, bold, free and so on are some of the emotions that go with my outfits. This outfit was about freedom. I love long full dresses, they make me feel very feminine. My favourite story as a kid, was Cinderella and it was all about the dress. This was my Cinderella moment (sort of).

I have been making this dress since the beginning of spring but I never finished it till last week. I  embroidered  the flowers on the fabric myself and I really like how it turned out. My  sister  accompanied me to the show and I made the outfit she was wearing as well. The shirt is from H&M, shoes from Zara and the bag is DKNY.

It was a great honour to be in this show. I had so much fun, I forgot to take pictures but what I have will do. Everything about the event was to the highest standard. The food- Magnum ice cream with amazing toppings. I have to talk about ice cream. Those who know me, know I love ice cream. Who even invented ice cream? A complete genius perhaps? I heard Magnum is a complete different brand in the US. For my US peeps, this is ice-cream over here. Champagne was flowing too the whole darn time and Fazer chocolate at its best. I met amazing people and I was completely free to be vain. Well, while on the outside looking in, it’s all vanity. Not the case. Clothes can love you like art or anything else. I was free to compliment anybody without feeling like I am invading the Finnish space. Every now and then fashion lovers need a space where they can compliment each other like about 10 times in a day. I don’t get tired of it. I wanna take this opportunity to thank Saila-Mari Kohtala and Gloria Magazine for creating such a dreamy event. Unfortunately, I’m back to reality.  

Thank you  so much for stopping by.
