my favorite cobbler

You might have noticed that I like shoes :). Especially high heels and Louboutins. Because I’ve decided to invest in good shoes I want to take extra good care of them to make them last as long as possible. I always take my Louboutins to a cobbler to have him/her put in rubber soles for both protection of the shoe and to make them less slippery. I used to use a cobbler on Tehtaankatu but since he sold his business I had to find a new place. I have now tried a new cobbler in Katajanokka and after a few pairs with excellent result I now feel confident to recommend her to you.

She is very gentle with the shoes and the result is very smooth and nice. Each pair of new soles cost 28€. The place is called Haraldin Kenkä and is located on Luotsikatu 5, 00160 Helsinki.

Who I was yesterday

Outfit,20 November 2014

Ever morning when I get dressed I feel like wearing these perfect over the knee boots from h&m. I am so glad I was fast enough to get myself a pair before they sold out in a blink of an eye last fall. They are made out of real leather and really good to walk in and I think they go with almost everything.

Actually I love shopping at more affordable stores because the items have less pressure on them to become my favorites. Its more okay if I change my mind on something that cost twenty euros instead of buying a dress for a lot of money that I only wear once or twice. Also I find that sometimes when I decide to really invest in a more expensive piece I opt to go for something that’s boring enough to wear for years ahead, but who feels inspired to wear something so safe and uninspiring like that?

I buy most of my clothes from h&m, zara and flea markets because I love to be able to change my mind, my style and my wardrobe. I also constantly get rid of clothes because I only want to have things in my wardrobe that I really love.

Fashion to me is supposed to be fun and playful and a way to express myself, who I am and what I feel. I refuse to take fashion too seriously and I never want to find myself regretting something I wore. Every day is a new day, a blank paper and I want to paint my paper however I feel like that exact day.

Have a fabulous Thursday everybody :)!
