THE HOUSE OF MARLEY

53 comments:

I love music. It's the thing that makes me smile no matter what mood I am. Okay, fashion does the same thing, but you know what I mean. About a month ago, I was contacted from Empire Nordic, who wanted to give me a headphones for a test drive. Well, these are not typical headphones; they are The House of Marley headphones. Oh wait, did I just mention the word headphones three times in two sentence? :D

The House of Marley is a company, founded by Bob Marley's offspring, which manufactures high quality products in most environmentally way as possible, and brides a part of the proceeds to the charity. 

Mine are called Rebel – there are many other designs where to choose from! Anyway, I was really blown away when I tried them for the first time. They were so comfy; the ear cushions were ultra-soft, which provides comfort and isolation from outside sounds. Like seriously, I could hear every single tone and instrument, and the bass, oh boy, it was fantastic!

FYI if you live in Finland: Stockmann, Tector, Rajala and Gigantti sell also The House of Marley headphones!

SWIRL SANDALS

Since I discovered Giuseppe Zanotti, I was hooked. My addiction to Zanotti shoes got even worse when I got the job at Boutique Kaarina K, which sells shoes from Giuseppe Zanotti beside to Balmain, Versace and Dolce & Gabbana. Everyday, I was checking out the shoe shelf and thinking; do I need a new pair of shoes? Ankle boots or pumps? Black or colorful?

After thinking it through, and trying several shoes, I found the shoes that would make my summer better; the Giuseppe Zanotti Colorblock Swirl Sandals. Oh my. These shoes are more than just shoes; they are piece of art. The first time when I wore them, I knew that they were mine: They were so comfortable, and easy to walk in so it was impossible for me to leave them on the shelf. 

Every single shoe that we have at Boutique Kaarina K, is special because we only have one pair of each size. This is the best part because it really feels like you are wearing something special that is not seen on everyone.

Because the shoes are so sleek, colorful and chic, I wanted to pair them with my boyfriend jeans and basic black tee. When I was planning my outfit, I realized I had a necklace that had the same colors as the shoes so I had to add it to the outfit. What you guys think about my new shoes?

LEATHER AND NEON

Yesterday was such a wonderful day! My day at work was really great – please let me know if you want a post about my everyday life! After work, I was in a hurry, because I was heading to a birthday party, but because I was going to work tomorrow aka today, I couldn't stay long. Plus, I wanted to make a little tour at the REVS party, where people were celebrating the 7th issue of REVS magazine ( if you haven't heard from this an amazing fashion magazine, make sure to order it!)

It took me awhile to figure out what I wanted to wear, because I wanted wear something easy and chic with a twist. I seriously in love with my army green blouse from H&M! I can wear it with a-n-y-t-h-i-n-g-! On that day, I wanted to make a contrast by wearing a leather skirt, which is by the way one of my favorite skirts at the moment – I can't wait to wear it more often! And, to make a nice pop of color to my outfit, I paired my neon sandals which I bought last summer from H&M! This are by far the most amazinghhh shoes that I own; statement piece that didn't cost me a fortune, easy walk in, and of course THE COLOR IS FREAKING NEON YELLOW! I really well in love with this outfit – how about you? 

P.s I just want all my readers to know how much I appreciate your amazing comments! Thank you so much for supporting me – it means the world to me! xx

SIMPLE SANDALS FOR SUMMER

54 comments:

Summer is here, which means this girl need new shoes! I've been dying to find simple black sandals to go with my boyfriend jeans, and other garments – you name it. Since last year, I've been searching and searching the perfect pair, but my luck hasn't turned around until now. I never realized how massive place Shopbop.com is – they seriously have everything! And the shoes...they are just my cup of tea. Fortunately, I managed to find EIGHT pair of simple sandals. Again, I'm caught in the middle because I have no idea which one is the one for me. I've showed number one here before couple months ago, and I still haven't got them out of my mind. Also, number three, four and six are looking very very nice. Oh man; decisions decisions...why's shopping so hard? :D Which one is your favorite?

LEATHER BLACK DRESS

50 comments:

Okay, I lied. It's pleather, not leather. I teamed up with Chicwish, and they wanted me to choose few items from their collection. The two items that I chose were this pleather dress, and the black bag, which was something really Céline-ish about it, don't you think? I absolutely adore this dress – one thing that I did notice that it's a bit short, but as long as I'm not crawling on the floor, I'll be fine. Because the leather is faux, it's hard to keep the surface nice and sleek – now it has noticeable wrinkles but I'm sure that I'll find a solution to get rid of them.Did you guys watch the Eurovision Song Contest? Well, let me tell you; I was so sad that FRANCE didn't place in the top 3! Of course I was sad that Finland didn't place in the top 10, but France, you're kidding me? Amandine Bourgeois was supér!! The song, L'enfer Et Moi has become one of my favorite songs this year! Oh man, I feel like Eurovision have lost their magic because I feel like the winner is selected before the competitionon has even started.

Hi loves! I hope your week has been delightful – mine has been. Yesterday, I was helping in a charity fashion show for MLL which is a non-governmental organization that promotes the child's right to a good and happy childhood. It was so great to be part of something that truly meant something. Today I'm planning to have sushi with a friend of mine and later, I'll be watching the Eurovision Song Contest – let's hope that team Ding Dong aka Finland brings the trophy home. Do you guys watch Eurovisions? I love watching them! 
Few days ago, I was wearing this really black and white outfit. I felt that this outfit was perfect because it was so simple and chic, and we all know what they say; "less is more". One thing that I really love about this outfit is the bag. The Céline inspired bag was given by amazing Chicwish, a online store that has so amazing clothes, accessories , shoes (you name it) in their collection. There was so many things to choose from but I'm so happy that I chose this one. I also chose a dress, which I'll be showing you later. ;) And because I carry my Macbook Air everywhere, I was really happy to see that this bag can fit my laptop without complications. 

What you guys think about my outfit? Don't forget to check out Chicwish website – you'll get hooked! ;)

DOUBLE DENIM

43 comments:

I know most of us have days when we don't have a clue what to wear. Well, I had that feeling couple days ago, but you know what guys? When I'm lacking of inspiration, I always go for double denim/ denim on denim look, because it's simple, edgy, cool, fierce... If you have happen to notice, I usually wear dark denim jeans and light denim blouse but this time it was another way around. Last week, I bought light denim jeans from Cubus because they were the perfect fit and color, and guess what? The price was only 13,95! Thank you, Cubus! I was so thrilled that these jeans were on sale because they are perfect, and they sure do look amazing with my dark denim blouse which I bought from mens apartment at H&M last year. 

I love this blouse because it's not shaped for women's body (I hate those). I love to keep my blouses oversized and baggy so whenever I'm wearing skinny jeans, the contrast looks amazing. I remember when my mom told me that when you are wearing, for example a loose top, wear skinny pants, and when you are wearing a tight top, wear trousers. Basically what my mom meant was that keep your upper and lower body in balance. This tip has been one of the best ones I've ever heard, and I'll always remember it! :) 

Oh, about the LV – it's not mine...my friend loaned it to me for couple of...days. ;)

CELEBRATION

Hi Loves! I can't believe May is finally here – summer is almost here!! On 30th of April, most of Finnish people were celebrating the May Day. I was pretty excited because I haven't gone out for longest time so couple drinks in good company sounded perfect. 

On that day, I was wearing jumpsuit by Finnish fashion designer, Piia Hänninen. This special garment was sample piece so I got for really great price. To give more glamour to the outfit, I wore a enormous necklace which I my colleague gave me. Because I made a promise to myself to wear earrings more often, I wore my adorable blue ones from Cubus. These earrings are one of my favorites at the moment.
