I'm suffering from a little something that could only be described as a post-wedding-depression. Last Saturday we celebrated my sisters beautiful wedding which could not have gone better! More on that later, but I have to admit the stress of running on a combined fashion week and Maid of Honor schedule has left me with a blank mind, although my head is filled with nothing but great memories. So, what now? I did not manage to talk myself into joining the Honeymoon, so instead I think a major blog catch up would be a good place to start.
Lately, I’ve been finding an unusual amount of satisfaction in something as simple as a red lipstick. You all know that I can’t/don’t want to change my hair around too much, so alternative vanity pick-ups it is. And so a new category is born here on 5 inch and up, where I’ll be sharing my favorite beauty products ever now and then. Hope you like it!
A few weeks ago, I visited New York with Levi’s for the launch of their new ‘Live in Levis’ campaign. After a day trip to Coney Island we sat down in the middle of Manhattan for their private Haim gig, entry ticket? Just wear your Levi’s! A cool trip to an even cooler city, makes me wish I was at NYFW this season! Oh well there is always next year.
My fall feature in Finnish magazine, Trendi, is now out! We shot some of my favorite seasonal trends and pieces in my new Helsinki flat. Still working on the decor as you can tell... But I’m promising a home feature soon. Pick a copy if you are in Finland for more.
Rain for the week, meh, bring it. I’m shielded by the coolest leather of the season, by All Saints, of course. My favorite leather go-to brand has a sleeker approach this season and I’m loving every inch of it. However, my floordrobe situation is not... time to switch out the stud-heavy bikers, as my leather jacket collection takes up an embarrassing large chunk of my closet. Diving into my favorite combo, dressy tailoring and leather, ah my sartorial mind in in full zen. Festive? Yes, but you’re never too overdressed when your backdrop looks like an angel castle.
It was more leaf prints for another day of Flow, already a few weeks back. Still hanging on to the last summer vibes and freezing in bare legs, not ready to let go just yet. But now: Hello coat season... you’ll be alright.
to be balancing the cobblestones of Helsinki again, a summer without my
beloved home town would never be the same. My brief New York trip gave
me a chance to update my classics, culottes and silk tops
in this case, with some sharp new season cuts. However it’s the shoes
that I wanted to boost, again. Finnish favorite Minna Parikka’s new
direction has had me intrigued more than ever before, the bunny ears has
undergone a little makeover that has captured even the attention of us
minimal girls. I predict the bunny sneakers as the new must have thing, Net-a-porter agrees.
