I'm only happy when it rains

I only smile in the dark
My only comfort is the night gone black
I didn’t accidentally tell you that
I’m only happy when it rains

The Last Resort

I’ll admit it, I lack motivation and I lack concentration, but I’ve finally gotten myself together to finish my latest sewing project and to put together this post. I made this long black tee with a 3/4 sleeve and a cowl neck, it’s something I’ve tried for the first time and I’m quite satisfied with how it turned out. Check it out and I hope you’ll enjoy it.

Wicked Son

I guess you’ve noticed the headline - ‘A blog for the anti-social fashion lover’. Because that’s who I am, and I’m proud to be the black sheep, the weirdo. I hate fashion weeks and pointless events and I loathe the word fashionista. But I’m still a fashion lover and I still love to blog. Embrace the wickedness, the weirdness, argue if you have to, scream if it helps - dare to be the wicked son!

The September Issue

So Autumn’s here and September’s almost passed. I’m sure we’ve all read one or more September Issues of our favorite magazines. Since my heart belongs to the north, this is the most exciting and the most beautiful time of the year. I get to do layering, wear outerwear and the weather is chilly, what more can you possibly wish for?

White walls and black Tees

I’ve been putting my sewing machine to work lately, at least I do when I get the chance. I really like this black tee that I made, hope you’ll like it too. I made the numbers from fake leather, I did have problems sewing them onto the fabric, so I used this special fabric glue. The glue is supposed to last long and you can also wash the garment in the washing machine and basically do whatever you want with it. I kind of wish I had made the tee a bit longer, so I could layer it with other garments since fall is coming (finally!).

Cats & Destruction

 It’s been a while since I’ve shared any of my sewing projects. But lately inspiration has found it’s way back to me and my sewing machine is gonna have to face it and work it’s ass off. Recently I made this gray oversized sweater and I thought that I could give it a little more life. I bought some acrylics and decided to go for a cute cat face as my first try at hand painting fabric. Previously I’ve only dyed sneakers with acrylics and they turned out pretty good, so I decided to give it a try, I hope you like it!

The New Fashion Capitals: Part 1 - Helsinki

London, Milan, Paris, New York… over and over and over again. The so called Fashion Capitals with their mainstream fashion weeks and countless designers, models, bloggers and everything that comes with it. Don’t you just want something new? Something fresh? New icons, new idols, cities, esthetiques? Well me too! So let me take you on a journey we’ve both been waiting for.

Writer's block

I’ve been gone, I’ve been lost. I haven’t given my all to this blog, but it seemed like I had lost some creative gene in my body. And I don’t want that to happen again, so this post is like a promise, like a reminder to myself to keep going. During this dark time of mine, I had a lot of second thoughts about this blog and blogging in general. But finally I realised, that I have been doing this since I was sixteen and it’s made me the person I am today. And I don’t feel like giving that part of myself away. And while I did some thinking, I realised where I got lost. It was when I started running for followers and blog stats and everything that comes with it.  So I’ve changed things. I finally changed my blogging platform and simplified everything quite a bit. And I don’t care how many people will read this, all I care about is that posting this makes me happier. And that’s exactly what I’ve missed.

Summer’s here & the heat is on! I usually find it hard not to lose your personal style during these hot months when you’re forced to wear shorts and flip fops. I really love outerwear & layering, so it’s understandable that summer is not my favourite season. In this post I wanted to show my new amazing cotton blend jacket from which is very lightweight and ideal for summer. I can already see that it’s going to be an essential item in my wardrobe this season.

Alexander Wang x H&M


I know that we’re all anticipating for summer to finally start, but what if I told you that there is something that would make you want November to come faster? What if that ‘something’ would be H&M partnering up with Alexander Wang? How would that sound for you?
During an event at the Coachella Music Festival, in California, USA, H&M announced that their next designer collaboration will be with Alexander Wang. This partnership marks the first time that an American designer teams up with H&M on the much anticipated designer collaboration.

Consumed by sunshine


You can call me lazy & you can call me boring, but I’ve decided to post my outfit looks as well. So we’ve dumped our winter outerwear & we’ve turned our clocks forward, but the most important thing is that spring is here & it’s staying, at least I hope so.

Bai:doo : A nice place


It’s been a while since all the holidays have passed and since the celebration season ended. But it wont take long until new ones will come our way & before you know it, birthdays, anniversaries, parties and graduations will take over your organizer and the never-aging question of ‘what to wear?’ will pop up on your mind again. But if you’re above the average fashion consumer with an eye set out for that special something & appreciate quality then this article might be just for you!

Gone For Gold


What is a new year without the new years resolutions? It’s the best time to leave the unnecessary in the past and focus on what’s really important. And studies have shown that one of the most popular new year’s resolutions is getting fitter, doing more sport, eating healthy and getting that gym membership you’ve been talking about for so long. Sounds familiar? This year, It’s one of mine as well. But it couldn’t be a better time for that, cause not only the winter Olympics are right around the corner, but also H&M has launched a special capsule collection inspired by the Swedish Olympic outfits.
