Leather and lace

I am now officially on my well-earned summer holiday! I have one week off now, and the remaining week I will use later this month to go shopping in Stockholm. Next week my boyfriend, my parents, my brother, his girlfriend and I are travelling to the Finnish Lapland, northern Norway and Sweden. I think its going to ge a fun road trip! I don't own a car but the wheels are provided by Nissan, you can read more about my adventures here (sorry, only in Finnish). And no, I have not sold my soul to the advertising devil, I was just offered a free car for a week (among some other bloggers) and used the situation to its fullest. So Tromso here we come!

Now to the more interesting part of this entry: the outfit. Yesterday I was at a friend's b-day bash and this is what I wore. The leather skirt is from the dress swap I had with Ranna awhile back. Something this rough needs to be paired with something a bit more feminine, so I added contrast with a girly white shirt and lace tights. My neighbor's scooter is getting a lot of attention these days...

Shirt: Nina Gold by Ellos
Skirt: Second hand
Tights: Target
Shoes: Björn Borg

Oi mikä hame!

No seriously, I've been chasing the perfect leather skirt for two years now, but no luck yet.

And yes, you look very chic. Your backyard is the perfect place for taking pictures.

Have a nice trip :)

Thedramadiaries: Thanks.. Heh, actually the skirt is chocolate brown but maybe the lighting makes it look more blackish.

Fruchtzwerg: Thanks! :)

Laura: Kiitti! I have been looking for a perfect leather skirt for ages too. Found four of them but they all seem to fit odd and be rising up when you walk (or maybe Im just getting bigger..). Acne had a perfect one but it was so expensive. This brown one is truly a gem! Thank you Ranna! Hopefully my trip will be good!

I love that skirt on you!
It's quite sad that all my clothes seem to look better on you than me. :)

Hey, when are you returning from Lapland?
We could (finally) list the auctions after that.

Mielettömän ihana nahkahame! Vyötärö on upea! Pidä hauskaa Micran kanssa aivan mieletön söpöliini se auto:)

I love the contrast between the tough-looking leather skirt and feminine top. Very good balance.

Ranna: I think that goes vice-versa. Why is that??? Argh! hehe. Anyways, I'm coming back on Tuesday next week, lets work on it then!

Jonna: Kiitos, tuossa on tuollainen hieman korsettimainen vyötärö, joka pitää hameen tiukasti paikallaan. ;) Kiitti, tuossa se hopeanuoli onkin jo pihassa. Kohta on lähtö!

Nancy: Thanks, that's the look what I was going for. :)

Toivon todella, että näet tämän kommentin ennen matkaasi/matkan aikana, sillä tässä tulee kullanarvoinen ohje: Jos menette Ivalon kautta, niin suosittelen, että pysähdyt puodissa nimeltä "Kenkä-Asu". Putiikki on kylässä yleisen vitsailun aihe, sillä siellä myydään vaatteita 60-70-luvuilta. Rouvalla on ä-lyt-tö-mät varastot sen aikakauden mekkoja (joitain merkkejä, joista Helsingissä pulitetaan yhtä älyttömiä summia), joita voisit arvostaa ihan sitä teidän tulevaa nettikauppaakin ajatellen. Osoite on Yhdystie. Jos tulette etelästä päin, niin käännytte Ivalossa toisen liikenneympyrän jälkeen oikeaan. Löydätte liikkeen varmasti, se on tavallaan S-Marketin takana.

Mutta jos ette mene Ivalon kautta, niin ignoraa tämä kommentti ;D

Anna: Ei menty Ivalon kautta, mutta olinkin miettinyt että missä tuo vintagen keidas sijaitsee. Kaverini oli lukenut ko. putiikista jostakin naistenlehdestä. Seuraavan kerran Ivaloon mennessä, tsekkaan varmasti paikan! Kiitos vinkistä ja ohjeista!
