Fintage Fashion Show: Yellow day dress

Today I am wearing a yellow day dress. I purchased this dress from vintage flea market of Waltikka Rock and Roll Ball a couple years ago. White springolators are from Siveltto and white box purse is from eBay. Yellow and white flower earrings I found from vintage shop called Nasta years ago.

I will post the next time not earlier than until on the 1st of November.

Tänään olen pukeutunut keltaiseen arkimekkoon, johon valitsin valkoiset asusteet. Ostin mekon joitakin vuosia sitten Waltikka Rock and Roll Ball -vintagekirpparilta. Valkoiset springolatorit löysin pari vuotta sitten Sivletosta ja valkoinen box-laukku on eBay:stä. Keltavalkoiset vahakukkaköynnöskorvikset ovat Nastasta.

Postaan seuraavan kerran aikaisintaan 1. marraskuuta.

Fintage Fashion Show: Something blue…

On last Saturday was celebrated my friend’s wedding in a lovely Finnish country village. I had purchased a new dress for the wedding, but it didn’t arrive on time, so I had to make a last moment look in my wardrobe. Because the church and party house were located in the middle of the most beautiful Finnish countryside, I thought that I might choose this time Finnish vintage dress. So I selected a dress that I bought years ago from a vintage shop called Penny Lane (www.pennylane.fi). I had used this dress only twice before, once in Waltikka Rock’n’Roll Ball, and once on Finland’s Independence Day. Both times had been a long time ago so I thought to use the dress once more. In the fact, I have been thinking to let this dress go many times, but the dress is one of my mother’s favorites, and she has absolutely forbidden me to give it up, so dress has kept its own place in my closet.

Viime lauantaina vietettiin ystäväni häitä suloisessa, suomalaisessa maalaiskylässä. Olin ostanut uuden asun häitä varten, mutta se ei ehtinyt perille ajoissa, joten jouduin tekemään viime hetken kierroksen omassa vaatekomerossa. Koska kirkko ja juhlapaikka sijaitsivat keskellä kauneinta suomalaista maalaismaisemaa, ajattelin, että voisin valita tällä kertaa suomalaista vintagea. Valitsin siis mekon, jonka ostin vuosia sitten vintage-liike Penny Lanesta (www.pennylane.fi). Olin käyttänyt mekkoa vain kaksi kertaa aiemmin, kerran Waltikan Rock’n’Roll-tanssiaisissa ja kerran Suomen itsenäisyyspäivänä. Molemmista kerroista oli paljon aikaa, joten ajattelin ulkoiluttaa mekkoa nyt tämän kolmannen kerran. Olen itse asiassa meinannut jo monta kertaa luopua tästä mekosta, mutta mekko on äitini suosikki ja hän on ehdottomasti kieltänyt minua luopumaan siitä, joten se on säilyttänyt paikkansa komerossani.

After I had chosen the dress, I was looking for a long time a matching hat from my hat boxes. I am pedantic about compatibility of colors, shades and materials and finally I didn’t find a completely matching hat. I then decided to give up and I replaced the hat with a big bun and celebrated in the wedding exceptionally without a hat. The matching medium length gloves were found from a flea market shortly after I had bought the dress.

Mekkovalinnan jälkeen kävin pitkään läpi hatturasioitani etsiessäni sopivaa hattua. Olen tarkka värien, sävyjen ja materiaalien yhteensopivuudesta enkä lopulta löytänyt yhtään täysin sopivaa hattua. Viimein päätin antaa periksi, korvasin hatun isolla nutturalla ja juhlin näissä häissä poikkeuksellisesti ilman hattua. Mekkoon sointuvat keskipitkät hanskat löysin kirppikseltä vähän sen jälkeen kun olin ostanut mekon.

One of the Lucite purses’ most brilliant features is the fact that you are able to change the color of the outfit. Also this time I lined my carved and rhinestone decorated Lucite clutch with a suitable cloth. My shoes were carved and rhinestone decorated matching ones for that, and for jewellery I selected only small rhinestone earrings.

Yksi Lusiitti-laukkujen nerokkaimpia ominaisuuksia on se, että sen väriä pystyy muuttamaan asun mukaan. Tälläkin kertaa vuorasin kaiverretun ja strassikoristellun Lucite-cluthini asuun sopivalla kankaalla. Kengiksi valitsin laukkuun sopivat, kaiverretut ja strassikoristellut Lucite- Springolatorit. Koruina minulla oli ainoastaan pienet starssikorvikset.

Fintage Fashion Show: Another red knit suit

Because I buy a lot of clothes from the internet, people often ask if I make lot of misses, when I can’t see the items in reality and try them on. The answer is almost always no, since I seldom make wrong decision.

The shopping luck is not always with me, and there are times when I have to be disappointed anyway. Today’s knit suit is an example of such case. I bought it a some time ago from internet and according to seller’s pictures, the color of the suit was bright pink. When receiving it became to be of completely different colour.

This colour was absolutely wonderful, but I have already similar colour knit suit! I presented it in my first Fintage Fashion Show posting. Since I am not good giving up on my new buys, I have not nerve to pass it along.

My lucite purse is labelled “Florida Handbags”. I love the flying shapes of it. I also have white springolators and earrings and bracelet set by Coro.

I really like this kind of knit suits and buy them whenever they become available. I like them so much, that I bought a pile of 50’s fashion pics only about these suits. My sister-in-law had seen the pictures for sale in old bookstore of small country village and winked right away to me about them, thanks Mirkku.

Here they are, my red knit suits…

Fintage Fashion Show: Silver Lamé dress by Lilli Ann

This time I am wearing Lilli Ann labelled silver lamé dress, which I found few years ago from Nasta. When I bought this dress it remained for long as only one of other dresses in my closet. When some time ago I was selecting a dress for my graduation party, this came up as flash in my mind. After that this has been a very dear for me, because it always brings in my memory that unforgettable day.

The outfit that I am wearing now is not the same as on that day, because I wanted to wear few new items (for me) that I had had never on before.

For gloves I had selected a sparkling silver colour ones. The grey-silver Lucite purse I received as a souvenir from my sister when she had visited Toronto. She found it from Cabaret Vintage boutique on Queens St. West. Because she remembered that I had been looking for this kind Lucite purse, she bought it right away for me. The earrings are rhinestone decorated double ball items on chains and my shoes are Lucite Springolator heels.

Here is the outfit of my graduation day. Other graduates were all male so I wanted to select very simple outfit. This outfit also was pure vintage. Silver coloured shoes are flea market find and purse of matching colour is from VintagEija’s. Aurora borealis faceted crystal earrings are from Nasta.
