dress ivana helsinki// parka dolce& gabbana// shoes jimmy choo// bag chanel

This look is typical me. Sweet and girly mixed with something relaxed to bring it down a notch. Both the dress and linen parka are second hand finds which to me make these pieces very special. When I shop second hand I put much less pressure on the clothes to be perfect compared to when I shop brand new pieces. I somehow accept the clothes for what they are and make the best out of it. Same things applies when I shop interior pieces for my home. We have a lot of old furniture and I don’t mind scratches and signs of life. I think it’s charming.

I actually sometimes find myself getting irritated over brand new pieces of furniture and clothes since I sometimes get disappointed when the price I payed doesn’t meet my expectations. Strutting around and browsing through stuff on markets (especially when traveling and abroad) is something I really love, enjoy and appreciate. I feel closer to the rest of the world when I get to look through other peoples old items and sometimes even welcome them into my own home.

fairies and dragons

I know it’s been a lot about ballet here lately, but once I got the hang of it I find it hard slow myself down. There is something so beautiful, personal and fragile about ballet, and I got so inspired by this gorgeous lace dress I purchased second hand from westartedthis. Ballet is the most beautiful form of art I know and the only sport I am really passionated about.

My intention was to write a long text about ballet and what it means to me, but when I started to think about it, I came to realize it’s a story I want to keep for myself. Instead I’ll let these beautiful pictures speak for themselves. I think these pictures are my absolute favorite pictures ever published in this blog. I hope you like them as much as I do.

“I believe in everything until it’s disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it’s in your mind. Who’s to say the dreams and nightmares aren’t as real as the here and now?”
