Dreaming about summer and Berlin

 Riikka( i LOVE that hat!)




I found these photos while looking for something totally different from my laptop. This winter has been so long and cold, or atleast it feels like it when you are so eagelry waiting for summer. These photos were taken in Tampere where we had our Fintage, vintage society meeting.

The other thing i'm dreaming about (besides New York, i'm always dreaming about New York) is Berlin. I saw a documentary about the 1930's cabaret in Berlin called "The real Cabaret" (England 2009) where actor Alan Cumming travels to find out the facts about the story behind the oscar winning movie.
In Finland you can see the documentary here.
Oh, and if you haven't seen my Blogistania episode, you can see it here (17 days left to watch it).
You can only watch it is Finland, sorry :/

Happy Birthday Doris Day!

Happy 88th Birthday Doris! 

She is one of my all time favourites and it's really hard to pick a favourite song but this one is one of them:

xxx noir party

Vitaminwater launched a new drink, xxx noir and invited me and some of my friends to the party. The dresscode was xxx. I was wearing a Fiona Timantti hat, a see through dress (fleamarket find), black bra, black vintage 50's girdle, black belt, seamed stockings and super high heels.
The dress was really see through.

p.s. It may seem that my life is one continuous party, but i can assure you it's not. I work almost every day of the week, but it might be boring to post pictures of me attaching diamonds etc. Besides, i work alone at my atelier at the moments, so there is no-one to take pictures of me working...

p.p.s. I made yet another Treasury List! I might make a whole series..This one is called Green With Envy.

Few little things

Sometimes the smallest, sillies things can make you extremely happy. Like these cat shaped earphones my brother brought me from New York. I bought a pair of these about a year ago when i was there, but broke them, and they could not be fixed :/ I was so happy to get new ones!

 A cup of tea with friends always makes me happy. This picture was taken at our tea dances few weeks ago. The tea had rosebuds in it! It's called "Marie Antoinette" and we got it from ThéHuone (our official tea sponsors :) The next tea dances are 15th of april.


 My Authentic Jazz Dance costume. We have matching outfits for our performance group (me and my friend Anni made them), they look especially nice while dancing blackbottom or charleston.

" How To Take Glamour Photos"(1955) & "Figure Photography"(1954)
A gift from my very dear friend Sirpa. We met when i was working for Fida few years ago.

 Bix and my Iron Sky canvas bag.

Now when the sun is up earlier i'm very happy about my Mirkka Metsola sleep mask (and i still think it's crazy cool to have a sleep mask with my eyes on it)!

Iron Sky Gala Premiere

26th of march was a very importans day for me. The day i've been waiting for. 
The Iron Sky Gala Premiere in Tampere! I've been working with these guys for years and love and respect them and i'm so proud of everyone! Especially Samuli and his crew. I was so lucky to be part of something amazing as this. 
It was a night full on friends (old and new) and fun. 
My VVIP pass. I shall treasure this for the rest of my life :)

Me and few guys from Varusteleka (the main sponsor of this film)

Laibach from backstage

It was not all play and no work for me, i was dj'ing there before the Laibach gig.
