Purple haze

As I promised in my last entry, here is one of the several second hand finds I made on Saturday: an extremely warm, purple knit sweater with a twist (literally). I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this beauty; it reminds me of something Acne or Fifth Avenue Shoe Repair could have created, plus it is in a perfect condition and made in a small weaving factory here in Finland.

Sweater: Jamie, second hand
Jeans: Cheap Monday
Shoes: Bullboxer
Pin: From Sweden
Ring: Kalevala Koru

It's so unfair that even though it's sunny outside, the thermometer still shows -10 Celcius. Lately I've been dreaming about the eternal summer in California, its beaches, driving on the freeway and the numerous house parties with friends (hi Jamie, Lloyd, Beth, Jennie, Andrew and Pamela!). It doesn't make it any easier watching a music video that made me want to travel into the States in the first place; I always pictured that life over there would be exactly like it, and well, I was right.

Edit: Today is just one of those days that I wish to blur my face, so ignore my flat hair and tired eyes that are still getting over from Saturday's party.

Even here in Spain we´re dreaming about summer!
Thanks for remember me this song... I also like that one, from the smashing pumpkins, which remembers me of warm days:

Kisses from Spain!

That cardigan is really cool, it almost looks like it's made of up a bunch of little bows.

Celia Marco (Shoe Maker): That's good to hear that even in the south people are dreaming about summer. :) Smashing Pumpkins are the greatest and the video for "Today" just made me miss summer even more...Heh, It's so funny, I just remembered this once incident when my friend Beth got hit on by James Iha in L.A., he actually looks really young for his age!

Corrie: Yeah it does! :) I can't wait to pair it with other outfits, today's was just a boring work look hehehe.

Anonymous: Joo on! :) Mä katselin tota kerran aikaisemminkin siellä, mutta nyt euron päivillä ei voinut enää vastustaa...

Heissan Anna-Maria ! Tässä on jotain häikkää tässä sun sivulla - jos tulen sun blogille niin uusin teksti Purple Haze ei näy - pääsin tähän tuolta helmikuun kirjoituksien kautta. Check !

Ei kun toimii se sittenkin, olikohan kyse kuvien hitaasta aukeamisesta ja mun kuumaverisyydestä, tai jotain. Tykkään neuleen kuviosta ja väristä ("lappapuuro", onkohan tuttu sana), mutta omaan makuuni vähän liian väljä malli. Koita toipua ennen ensi viikonloppua !
