*) uuuh, watch out, soon all northern hemisphere blosg will start their "uuu, tulips, pastels, waiting for spring"-posts...
They have this great soup lunch and relaly good organic carrot cake. Mmmmmm, carrot cake...
Then I went over to my old hoods in Kallio to visit Irja in her vintage store Hoochie Mama Jane. I used to pop over for coffee and what-nots all the time before when I lived ajust around the corner...
The tiny store is always packed with lots of nice stuff and rather famous for it's acessories.
One seldom leaves empty handed; Irja always picks something out for you. I got myself a couple of vintage dresses suitable for maternity. Or, the other is an actual sixties maternity dress. Will have to wait for slightly warmer weather yet though.
Then I took the tram to the other side of town.
To visit Senja.
Senja works for Belle Modeste, making custom corsets. The showroom, Boutique 18, is shared with a couple of other hand made labels, with clothing, lingerie and acessories. Senja is making me a maternity dress inspired by one I found on etsy but missed out on buying. It's good to know seamtresses!
Later I met up with my friend Katja, who I really hadn't seen for ages, for some Mexican food.
Katja is camera shy but here's the place instead; Pueblo.
