Going with the Flow

Going with the Flow

I'm back from Flow festival but so dead beat that my sleep deprived body is saying I should switch off my computer, and get some sleep instead of blogging. Even so, I want to share some pictures from Saturday.

Immediately after getting inside the festival area, I saw a familiar face smiling at me, and recognized it to be the ever-so-stylish Essi from the Fashion Overdose. I asked her to join us and soon we really hit it off, talking about music, fashion, Berlin, and of course, blogging. Doesn't she look so cute?

My own outfit for the evening was compiled by taking the weather changes into consideration, and adding some Robert Smith into the mix. The brand new white Docs actually served me extremely well during the evening, though my calves were hurting just a wee a bit this morning (nothing untolerable, for those of you who were asking). I'd give them a few more walks, and they should be just fine.

As for the bands, we ended up seeing Vivian Girls, White Lies, Grace Jones, Juan McLean and my personal favorite of them all, Handsome Furs. I don't think I've ever seen as energetic show as this stylish Canadian couple put together at Flow. I completely fell in love with Alexei's fringey knit dress, anyone know who it's by?

Button-up dress: MTWTFSS
Sweater: Fifth Avenue Shoe Repair
Vest: Two Percent 2%
Jeans: Cheap Monday
Combat Boots: Dr. Martens
Scissor necklace: Ann Demeulemeester
Packbag: Second hand

I also met up with the absolutely fabulous Stella before the festival, and enjoyed some drinks and good company at her place pre-Flow. We also had some business taken care of but more about that later. Now I need to go to sleep...

P.S. My blog's birthday competition is now closed, I will announce the winner tomorrow!

Handsome Furs was amazing! And they are so cute couple, kissing and hugging while playing. They seemd to have a lots of fun at the stage.

Too bad we missed eachother. :(

Lada: Sama täällä!:)

Jenni: Yeah it's a pity! A lot of familiar faces were there but I must have been blind cause I only saw Essi, Maria and Kirsikka at the festival area (they actually all saw me first). :D

Sugar Kane: Thanks!:) We had a blast!

Lip Gloss and Mane Toss: Thanks! It's one of my favorites at the moment. :)

Anonymous: Lol, indeed! :D

Essi: Yeah a bit but it's a good photo anyway. :) We look so rough and tough and dangerous!:D I can totally relate, I was there just one day and I'm still dead beat. Oli tosi kiva tavata ja toivottavasti nähdään pian uudestaan!:)

Domennie: Thanks!:)

Missrose: Thanks! The boots are pure love. <3

NinaV: Yeah, they were so cute together and Alexei was so energetic. I really loved it! I seem to lost my eye sight into the crowd because I didn't see anyone. Everyone always came up to me heheh. But yeah, it's too bad I didn't see you either!

Stellagee: Awwws.. that sucks! It would have been nice to meet you. Next time then! :)

Nelliina: Joo olin ihan sokea enkä huomannut juuri ketään, oli liikaa massaa plus aika pimeä...Grace Jones oli kyllä aika äijä, mutta tyylikäs sellainen. ;)

Stellagee: Thanks for the tip, that makes sense cause the couple loves Finland. Gotta check it out!

Juliet: It was quite nice. :) Summer seems to have gone by too quickly. :(

KAELA: It was, thanks!:)

Hanna Persson: Thank you so much!:)

It's so cool when bloggers meet each other!)(when I was in Hesinki I saw Vesa Perakyla from V for Vesa) I saw some photos on hel-looks from this festival and it's a pity that they didn't shoot you!
