Leather up


And so it’s the time of the year when I can already feel the nature shifting it’s path. As we count down the last days of summer, we should spend a little time looking forward and thinking about our next seasons wardrobe. In a way it’s exactly what I did, but I had other reasons as well. Recently some a-hole stole Laura’s favorite leather jacket. I did everything I could to get it back, but apparently there’s a bigger tolerance for thieves in this country than where I come from. And since we failed to get an equal jacket in the stores, I decided to make it myself.
It’s the first time I’ve ever done outerwear and the first time I’ve made something entirely out of faux leather. It wasn’t easy, but I managed to come up with something beautiful. I added a leather fringe detail that goes all the way down the back & it’s the first time I’ve done that as well. Laura loves it & I do too.

A whimsical interview: Agnese Kleina


Being a fashion blogger, there are only a few blogs which I read and inspire from on a regular basis. But there is one that’s my complete favorite. It’s Whimsicalagnesiga, of course. There’s a lot of reasons why I like it, first of all, it’s the most successful Latvian fashion blog & the girl standing behind it is a huge inspiration herself. Agnese Kleina is not only an amazing journalist and blogger, but a fashion icon of the new generation. Let’s just say that I was more than excited that she agreed to do an interview for G&M.
