A LONGER LUNCHBREAK AT HELSINKI VINTAGE

So, yesterday it was the same procedure as last time Helsinki Vintage was on; off with the working gear and on with the skirt and the lipstick for a quick lunch break visit of browsing, admiring, super fast shopping and some mandatory socializing at the fair.


I pretened my hair was short; rolled it inwards towards the neck.

So many things, so little time...
Thanks to Gina at Americana for the give away tickets!

Then it was off with the lipstick and back to work.

But I actually managed to buy something; it was a good thing I had the guys from work pick me up with the van. Possible photos to come later on.

Sounds like a great lunch break to me ;)

I still can't square it in my head that you work in the harbour. :) Can't wait to see what you bought! I'm loving the "if your money is needed at home" sign, would that have been up in a bar?

I'm looking for an excuse to get to Finland in the near future, and I think I may have found the perfect exuse...

Is this a yearly event? And was there much menswear there?

I find it hard to imagine someone as glamorous as you working in the harbour! Who'd have thought it? You must feel like a butterfly every time you get dressed up, shedding all that heavy work gear. You're so very pretty, your hair and makeup looks just as amazing as ever!
Looks like a fantastic way to spend your break, i can't wait to see what wonderful things you picked up!

Why oh why do I live 500 km away from happenings like these?! Plus I was also working this weekend and thus missing out on an auction selling teak furniture and string shelves not far from here as well. Sigh. Looking forward to seeing what you bought though!

Uhhhh, love your hairstyle. Would you consider making a short tutorial as I have two left hands when doing anything complicated with my hair? I'm so jealous that everywhere seem to be vintage and antique fairs and in my city you can barely find a thrift shops which stocks more than kids stuff and h&M.

It was lovely to meet you again, although it was so quick, but still :) I also had great fun with my friends in the fair.
