Hello my lovelies,

First of all, thank you for your lovely feedback on my last post and my situation. It means the world to me that you guys support me and have my back <3.

So how better to celebrate than with a festive outfit! The fauxfur coat is from Yours Clothing, and it feels so luxurious, and the fit is great too. I got the peplum top from Pink Clove, and it’s perfect for the party season. The fit is perfect, and the baroque pattern in the gold is lovely. The clutch and the bracelets are amazing goodies I have gotten from blogger events this autumn. The clutch is from Just Fab, and the bracelets are by Annie Haak (who I met at a blogger breakfast few weeks ago – really nice and talented lady). The IGIGI skirt you have already seen, but in these photos you can see it from the back too. It is such an amazing skirt! So yes, all in all this is one of my favourite outfits in a while, I think I should go to more parties ;).

PS1. Don’t forget to enter my giveaways: $75 gift voucher to IGIGI ends at midnight UK time tonight, and Pour Moi? bra+bottoms set of your choice ends in 2 days!

PS2. If you are planning to shop at Yours Clothing, don’t forget to use code ‘BLOGGER12′ for £10 off £20. Works internationally, more info in this post.

Heippa!

Ihan ensimmäiseksi halaun kiittää ihanista kommenteista joita sain edelliseen postaukseeni. Se merkitsee mulle tosi paljon, että tässä tilanteessani mulla on tukea. Kiitos <3.

Sitä oloa voikin nyt sitten juhlistaa tällä juhlavalla asulla! Tekoturkis-takki on Yours Clothingilta, ja se tuntuu ihanalta päällä – ihan luksusta. Pink Clove lähetti mulle tämän peplum-paidan ja se on ihan täydellinen tähän joulunalusaikaan. Se istuu tosi hyvin, ja kultainen barokki-printti tuo lisää luksusfiilistä. Clutch-laukku ja rannekorut ovat bloggeri-tapahtumien goodie bageistä tältä syksyltä. Laukku on Just Fabiltä, ja rannekorut Annie Haakilta (jonka tapasinkin bloggeri-aamiaisella – mukava ja erittäin taitava nainen). IGIGI:n hameen olette jo nähneet, mutta näissä kuvissa näkyy myös takaosa. Tämä on kyllä ihanin kynähameen tyylinen hame mikä mulla on ikinä ollut! Eli joo, kokonaisuudessaan tää on yksi mun lemppariasuista vähään aikaan, pitäisi varmaan käydä enemmän juhlimassa ;).

Fashion World Shapewear Challenge

Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

(Tämä on yhteistyö Fashion Worldin kanssa, ja koska he eivät valitettavasti toimita Suomeen päätin jättää käännöksen tekemättä. Seuraava postaus tulee taas myös suomeksi.)

Hello my lovies,

A few weeks ago I was asked by Fashion World if I wanted to take part in their shapewear challenge. I haven’t really worn much shapewear, only highwaisted knickers really, so I was intrigued and replied yes.

They kindly let me choose a party dress and shoes, and with them they sent me 3 different pieces of shapewear. They also sent me scorecards for each item, and I was meant to take photos wearing my party dress with each item. So that is exactly what I did, and first I will show you the scorecard images and then the final party outfit.


First up is the MAGISCULPT Retro Underbust Bodyshaper* in size 26. I really love how it looks on the model, but unfortunately it didn’t work on me at all. It looks ok, and smooths my belly like it should, but the poppers in the crotch kept on opening all the time if I moved. I think I possibly should have sized up to get rid of this issue, but I feel that then it would have been too loose in my belly area. Maybe my back is just too long for this type of shapewear, as I did have the shoulder straps on maximum lenght too. So for that reason some of the scores are so low, never knowing when the poppers would open.


Next up is the MAGISCULPT High Waist Thigh Shaper* in size 26. I did really like the effect of this shapewear, and it felt really supportive on. Unfortunately that ended when my legs started. I got extra rolls in my thighs, because the shorts were so tight and my thighs are all squishy. And this type of shapewear doesn’t work with my chosen dress either, as the shorts showed fully in the slit part of the skirt. (Sadly it isn’t visible in the photos because I have black tights on.) So those are the reasons for the low confidence score, I didn’t want them to show, and the extra rolls weren’t nice either.


Finally my favourite, MAGISCULPT Pack of 3 Control Briefs* (size 26) – and I have actually worn these before too, so happy to have a new stock ;)! These knickers almost come up to my boobs, and smooth my belly without being crazy tight. Definitely my choice of shapewear in the future too :)! Really amazing value for money too, as 3 pairs are only £24 – I wholeheartedly recommend!

But even though some of my scores were low, the final outfit turned out to be one of my favourites in a while! So yes, here’s my final party look, with that last type of shapewear underneath. I decided to accessorise with this lovely clutch I got from the goodie bag at Accessorize SS14 press day, and this most gorgeous nude lippy for my skintone. It’s from Finnish brand Lumene, who unfortunately aren’t stocked anywhere in the UK. (US readers can find Lumene at Walgreens and Drugstore.com for example.) Mimmi brought me this lipstick when she came to visit me last month, and I’m so happy to have found this perfect nude!






Dress*: 26, Fashion World | Tights: 22-26, Yours Clothing | Shoes*: Claire Richards for Fashion World | Bag*: Accessorize | Glasses: SpecsPost | Lippy: Lumene Wild Rose Lipstick SPF 15 in 88, Bare Nature

Plus North: Catwalk

Tags: , , , , , ,

(Suomeksi kuvien alla)

Hello my lovelies,

This is my final post on Plus North (see previous ones here and here), and it’s just a quick outfit post on what I wore for the Scarlett & Jo catwalk at the afterparty.

First time I saw this dress was in NYC when I went to the Evans A/W press day, and I fell in love with it. The dress is the same shape as this top, and I really love that shape on me (seen in this post). Thankfully the lovely Lucy from Scarlett & Jo remembered that I loved it, and scheduled me to model it at Plus North (and actually sent the dress to me last week as well – thank you). The catwalk itself was scary, but thankfully the other modelling bloggers were there with me and we got through it together :). I loved how they styled our hair and make-up, I wish I could do a bun like this myself!








Dress*: 24, Scarlett & Jo | Shoeboots: Evans (same with studs) | Glasses: Select Specs | makeup and earrings provided by Scarlett & Jo

Mekko*: 52, Scarlett & Jo | Korkkarit: Evans (samat erilaisella korolla) | Rillit: Select Specs | meikki ja korvikset Scarlett & Jo:lta

Heipparallaa,

Apua, eka asupostaus suomeksi, jännittää :D. Noh, eiköhän tää tästä.. Ihan ekaks haluan mainita, että niin paljon kuin pystyn, niin laitan asulinkkejä paikkoihin jotka toimittaa myös Suomeen/mainitsen suomalaiset koot. Tässä tietyssä postauksessa olen käyttänyt UK-linkkejä englannin kielisessä tekstissä ja Suomi-linkkejä suomalaisessa tekstissä. Toivottavasti linkit toimivat, mutta jättäkää ihmeessä kommenttia jos tarviitte lisäinfoa tai apua :). Ok, sitten itse postaukseen…

En tiedä ootteko jo nähneet mun edellisiä postauksia Plus North-tapahtumasta parin viikon takaa (jos ette, niin ne löytyy täältä ja täältä)? Tämä on asu joka oli päälläni, kun olin catwalk mallina Scarlett & Jo-merkille tapahtuman iltabileissä.

Näin tämän mekon eka kertaa New Yorkissa kesällä, kun vierailin Evansin syys-talvi malliston pressipäivillä. Mekko on samaa mallia kuin tämä paita, joten tiesin mallin sopivan hyvin kropalleni (jos kiinnostaa, niin vanha asupostaus kyseisen paidan aikaisemman version kanssa löytyy täältä). Lucy Scarlett & Jo:lta onneksi muisti, että rakastuin mekkoon New Yorkissa ja listasi mut malliksi sille (ja lähettikin mekon mulle omaksi viime viikolla – ihanaa)!

Catwalkilla oli pelottavaa, mutta onneksi me kaikki bloggeri-mallit oltiin samassa jamassa ja tuettiin toisiamme. Ja siis RAKASTAN miten meidän meikit ja hiukset laitettiin.. osaisinpa tehdä tuollaisen nutturan itse! Valitettavasti olen ihan toivoton hius- ja meikkiasioissa, haha ;).

Plus North: Evening

Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

Hey my lovies,

I posted my Plus North: Day look a few days ago, and now it’s time for me to show you my evening look. I wore my shirt dress from ASOS Curve, that I had only worn once before (and as a casual look). I love this dress, it’s simple, but has gorgeous details. And since I had my hair and makeup done for the Scarlett & Jo -catwalk (more about that later), the whole outfit looked fab – so I have to send a huge THANK YOUUUU  to Team S&J for the super lovely hair and makeup look!







Dress: 26, ASOS Curve (similarish at ASOS Curve: 1, 2) | Shoeboots: Evans (same with studs) | Pearl necklace: New Look (similar at Simply Be) | Bow ring: Forever 21 (similar at Forever 21 US, New Look) | Glasses: Select Specs
