Fintage Fashion Show: Green chiffon dress

A little something I wore to my dear friends wedding the other week. It was a hot and humid day and I finally had the opportunity to wear this early 1930s style reproduction dress I found at a vintage fair in London well over a year ago. The 30s shoes are Finnish made. I’ve been growing my hair for nine months or so now and it is getting a bit long, so I’m not doing pin curls and waves for my 20s-30s looks anymore. I have waves on the sides and just roll the ends up or something similar.

I hope the pictures speak for themselves (the dress is so pretty and the fit is perfect – not something I’m used to with modern made clothes).

Hope you’ve all had a lovely summer!

365 Vintage Days: Inspector Palmu

One of the best known Finnish novellist is Mika Waltari, who wrote the world famous Sinuhe the Egyptian. Mika Waltari also wrote tens of wonderful novels, many of them with a great historical background (such as Sinuhe) but also many with strong ties to the Finnish society of the first half of the twentieth century and to Helsinki. Mika Waltari was the first to write a Finnish detective story with Inspector Palmu’s creation in 1939. Mika Waltari wrote three novels involving Inspector Palmu, all sited in Helsinki. All three novels later served as the base of popular movies by Finnish Director Matti Kassila in the 1950′s. Kassila also made a fourth Inspector Palmu movies, which was not based on a novel by Mika Waltari.

A couple of weeks ago I joined a group of vintage movie enthusiasts in a tour of the Inspector Palmu’s film locations in Helsinki: the police station where Palmu worked (which was indeed a real police station at the time), the house where he lived, the houses where a number of characters – murderers and victims – lived and the former location of the main movie studios. That was a really great tour, with good stories told by experts. And a perfect weather.

I was wearing a circle skirt with a print of winter trees, in grey, green, dark red, black and white. I paired it with a green blouse, dark red sandals, purse and belt. I also had a gold tone charm bracelet and gold loop earrings.

I purchased this skirt from a friend last fall, at the vintage flea market of the Oilers motorcycle club. The blouse is from Boss vintage, at the Viva Las Vegas weekender a couple of years ago. The charm bracelet is from a small antique mall in Lincoln City on the Oregon coast. The purse is from Sweden and the wedges from the US. The gold loop earrings were custom made for me.

365 Vintage Days

365 vintage days was a bet and a challenge. From March 2011 to March 2012, during 365 days, I published every day a new post with a different vintage outfit and had you witnessing the challenge. I have been buying and wearing 50’s clothing and accessories – most of it casual - for more than twenty years and I am still doing so. This blog now continues ...

Fintage Fashion Show: Swiss Dot dress

I bought this 1930s white and green Swiss Dot dress probably well over a year ago but just recently came across it in my wardrobe and have been wearing it for the first time the past couple of days now. The light colour and sheer fabric are perfect right now as it is quite hot and sunny in Finland. The shoes are a pair of modern dancing shoes I found from a flea market a few years back.

365 Vintage Days: Suvi Vintage

Suvi means summer in Finnish and Suvi Vintage is the summer vintage event organised by the Fintage Association every year in Tampere.

Suvi Vintage always offers a lot: good vintage shopping of course but also a vintage fashion show, swing dance demonstrations and lessons, live music, vintage bikes and cars and more in a really nice location.

This post includes a video of the Suvi Vintage event from the Finnish TV news , showing also how I was dressed that day and hopefully giving you also the opportunity to feel the atmosphere there. Here’s the link. MTV 3 news June 29th 2014
The video’s first part was filmed at our home a couple of days before Suvi Vintage. I was then wearing a hot pink pencil skirt with a pink and white cashmere sweater and was just coming from work (that was my pink week).

At Suvi vintage I was wearing a drop waist cotton dress, in black, pink and hot pink, with a pink purse and canvas wedges and pink enameled metal costume jewelry set.

I had just purchased the dress at the Rockabilly Rave, from Debbie’s vintage stall. At the Rave, I also finally found the bracelet of this pink set, which I had been looking for for many years.

The purse and the wedges are from on-line shops.

365 Vintage Days: Rockabilly Rave 2014

Seems that I am not keeping the pace with posting… Today a couple of outfits that I wore on saturday at the Rockabilly Rave in the UK, already three weeks ago. At the rave this year we took surprisingly few outfit pictures and concentrated on spending time with friends. This means that there will be only one post about the Rockabilly Rave this year and only two outfits. Yet, we really had good fun, as allways at the Rave. We missed many bands but It’s always so nice to see friends and do some vintage shopping!

Saturday during the day I had a circle skirt, in pink with a novelty print of roses, feather quill pen, ink and love letter. This skirt is usually seen in black and pink and considered collectable. I found a pink one last September at the High Rockabilly weekender, from Tamara’s and Cyril’s vintage stall. Because the print also has a touch of green I paired the skirt with a green blouse, belt and purse as well as pink canvas shoes, and pink plastic jewelry. The belt is a recent purchase from flipville’s etsy shop. The sandals are from VintagEija’s vintage shop in Turku, the purse is from the flea market at the High Rockabilly weekender and the blouse is also from Tamara and Cyril’s vintage stall. The first picture was taken as I was just finished with the dishes and the second one together with my friends Erika and Maarit.

Later in the evening I changed into a dark-grey silverish dress with black velvet accents and a scalopped decoleté. I also had a silver tone costume jewelry set, a grey Llewellyn lucite purse, a black velvet bolero (it was chilly) and repro (read: comfortable) Rocket-original wedges that nicely combined grey and black suede. It would have been nicer to wear evening sandals but saturday was the third night of rocking and dancing… And I wanted to wear comfortable shoes to continue rocking and dancing.

Both the purse and the dress are very recent purchases from VintagEija’s shop. The velvet bolero is from a vintage shop in Vancouver, Oregon two years ago. I bought the shoes a few years ago from Rocket Original’s stall at a weekender in the UK. The costume jewelry set is from the US, probably 15 years ago.
