Hei!
Unfortunately the Internet connection on Saturday and Sunday wasn’t very good. So here is my update for the last two days…

On Saturday, I went to UFF second hand store. I think it’s the biggest and best organised one I ever was!

The finnish are really into individual style, combined with vintage and second hand or hand-made clothes….
So look at this young lady…

At the moment Riika (20) is working at a food boutique and still thinking over what to study. But it is obviously that it has to be something with fashion…her skirt is made by herself.

I asked her what is the really extraordinary thing about finnish style…?
She answered me that she thinks it has to be the creativity, the creating something new and fashionable for example out of second hand or vintage stuff. She also told me that lots of finnish guys know to make their own clothing. Perhaps that is the reason why they have so many finnish designers that make that really kewl finnish designer stuff…

So I wanted to see more of the fashion culture in Finland and I went to vistit Vintage Babushka (the vintage shop I Amalia works at.).

It is really cute…


…and I got mysellf this beautiful vintage dress.

All happy (3 bags full of vintage clothing ; )) and a little bit tired I went eating at Lappi Ravintola (a must if you are in Helsinki!).

It was soo good, though I am a little bit sorry for the cute elks and reindeers…
…but they were yummy ; )
As a dessert I ate some finnish cheese with cloudberry sauce. Sounds strange… but it’s really good.

So you see finnish style is definitely a so called „must have“! Ok, you dont have to be fond of the cheese thing or the reindeer steak ; )…but lets think more about doing stye ourselves. That is what counts if it comes to style itself. Doing what you like and feeling good with it or in it. ; )
My opinion…Finland is definitely one of the most interesting countries in Europe, and it is going to have a deep impact on the international style community…

Hei!
Greetings from Helsinki, Finnland!

After a turbulent flight, I landed (thank god in one piece…) at Helsinki airport. After a really good and also affordable fish platter (that I had to fight about with some seagulls…) at the beautiful market place (Kauppatori), I visited the old market hall (Wanha Kauppahalli)…

…and look who I found…

Amalia works at a Vintage Shop in Helsinki, where her beautiful outfit ist from, it is called Vintage Babushka that is located @ Isoroobertinkatu 42.

So I asked her as a local vintage connaisseur for some shopping tips…
…and she told me the names and adresses of the three best vintage stores in Helsinki. (of course Vintage Babushka @ Isoroobertinkatu 42; Hold your horses @Albertinkatu; Ansa @Flemingkatu).

She and her friends also gave me a really kewl city guide that is called 24 hours in Helsinki a real „Nordic Oddity“ ; ). So I am well prepared for power-shopping tomorrow and taking some pictures of the stylish girls n guys of Helsinki…

She also told me that she is going to move to Kopenhagen to study, what ist also a good choice for a fashionista… ; )
So I say thx for the good tipps and good luck in Kopenhagen! Perhaps I go there too one day and we meet again. I heard there were good vintage shops too…

CU all tomorrow…
