SINCE I'VE ALREADY STARTED...

(Pose - Stupid)
Jacket - Vintage
Skirt - Selfmade
Shoes - Minna Parikka

...I might aswell continue with the cheating a little bit more.

I found this jacket in a vintage store i Tampere last weekend. It had a matching skirt that would've brought many outfits to perfection but that unforntunately happened to be cut for hips the size of my thigh, so I could forget about that straight away. Sigh.

Oh well, you cant always have everything. I was sad to leave the skirt behind but still happy about the checks of the jacket matching the tartan on my shoes. (And that's already pretty much to ask for :)

The jacket matching to the shoes - that's perfection at its best!

Mrs Munster said...

Cute jacket, but how are you going to explain this to your leather jacket?

Désirée said...

Hi, darling!
Du är lika stilig as always
jag har startat en ny blogg och den är på svenska.

Ilona said...

Beautiful outfit, matching shoes &jacket is great! Maybe it would be too much if you had the skirt, too?

Cathy Voyage : :)

Mrs.Munster : it's taking it quite well (wearing it today). Now they all hang cutely next to one and other in my entrance like a small happy family.

Désirée : Va kul att du är tillbaka!

Ilona : yes your right; I think it would be a bit too much togehter with these shoes but with black shoes it would've been nice...

Vasiliisa said...

I feel your pain, two-pieces never fit me because my top is smaller than my bottom :). But, hey, at least you got a fantastic jacket!

mothersvea said...

I do like that jacket!

Lyiks said...

You talk about rautalanka-music as a whole but could you please recommend some bands?

WendyB said...

Fabulous jacket!

the freelancer's fashionblog said...

Vasiliisa : Yes and the jacket is more usable than the skrit nayway...

Mothersvea : thanks, so do I :)

Lyiks : I listen to Marko Haavisto & Poutahjaukat a lot, then of course Laika and the Cosmonauts, The Shadows (their old stuff), The Tornadoes, The Aquamen, The Mustangs etc. etc. I also like rockabillybands like Fatboy, Batmobile, The Meteors, that's not really rautalanka of course but they still have that right sound.

Wendy B : thanks :)

Sal said...

What a great find! Looks so sassy with your beret, too.

the freelancer's fashionblog said...

Sal : thanks. I think a beret has a great ability to almost always be able to 'sass' things up :)

Great jacket. I love the beret too, I am wearing mine as much as possible before it gets too hot here.

Beka said...

Love the shoes and tights combo! Great touch. The hat...adorable! I plan to make hats like those for Christmas!

Great outfit. ( I love the suitcase in the background!)

Hello!
I had the same experience with a suit I bought recently, but I couldn't bare to leave the skirt behind. Now it sits alone in my wardrobe...
How lucky the jacket matches your gorgeous shoes though, sounds like it was meant to be.

What about the suitcase behind you - can you tell us about that little treasure?... its so cute. Super outfit, shame about the skirt but the jacket is fab. xf

Pratishtha Durga said...

What a lovely jacket. And perfect that it matches with your shoes. Wow, I REALLY like this look. I am waiting for winter to set in in Mumbai. It's still so warm here...

sött nonsens said...

åh. Jackan är verkligen gudomligt snyyyyggg. Som du!

the freelancer's fashionblog said...

Esme and the Lane Way : thans. It's so strange to think you'll be dressing down for summer now whne it keeps gettin colder here...

Beka : great, are you going to knit them?

Lady Melbourne : I was thinking of getting the skirt too just for the thing of it but i still left it behind. Maybe you can alter you skirt somehoe to make it fit..?

Sofia : I bought mine in Bangkok... but I've seen somewhat similar ones in piercingshops over here!

Francis Girard : I found it in the trash :) I wrote about it a long time ago in this post:
