We're living like skeletons

This black dress always makes me think of bones, so I've been calling it "the fish bone dress" ever since the mailman brought it to me. I was wondering where I've seen a similar dress before and suddenly it hit me: there was a white version in the Alexander Wang f/w RTW 09/10 collection. It's no wonder my eyes were glued on this whilst browsing the Asos.com's never ending morass of clothing.

Tonight should actually be a fun night, as we might go check out the great Joensuu 1685 (they're absolutely the best Finnish band at the moment!) or meet up with friends at the local British pub. We'll see how the night unfolds.
Enjoy your weekend!












Dress: Asos
Draped cardigan: H&M

Lame leggings: American Apparel

Boots: Ann Demeulemeester

Bag: All Saints /Spitalfields
Bracelet: COS
Chain bracelet: Jimmy Choo for H&M


"There's a gaping hole in the way we are
With nothing to fill it up anymore
No flesh no blood just broken bone

A frame to hang our lives from

We're living like skeletons

Won't someone wake the dead in me
Won't someone shake the dust off me

Give me water give me bread

But don't give me up for dead
We're living like skeletons"

The Sound: Skeletons

heimoi,

eräässä postauksessa sulla oli Kenkärevosta ostetut maiharit, kysyisinkin, ovatko ne sattumoisin Carnaby street merkkiset? Itse mietin, ovatko ne tarpeeksi pitkät varresta, ja kun niitä on kahta eri mallia, sirompaa ja sitten sitä kunnon maiharia. Thanks jos viitsit auttaa!

Blogisi on aivan älyttömän inspiroiva ja tyylisi on yksi hienoimmista, mitä oon koskaan nähnyt. 8-) tuo mekko on jotain silmiä hivelevän upeaa. Kiitoksia, kun piristät aina päivääni upeilla asuilla!

Just love it ! Did your hair already grow back or is this artificial help ? Anyways, looks great and even though I liked a lot tha graphic cut you had, I finally think that longer looks better? Real femme fatale with some modern spice. I really dig your looks this fall. Still no snow in Manse ?

Sugar Kane: Thank you! Oh we did, and went via SoHo to Klubi. ;)

Anne: Maiharini eivät ole Carnaby Street-merkkiset, niissä ei itse asiassa tainnut olla mitään merkkiä. :D Omani ovat hieman sirommat kuin ne Carnabyt, mutta niitäkin katselin sillä silmällä maihareita ostaessani. Ottaisin itse sen siromman mallin Carnabyistä (jos omia eli niitä merkittömiä ei enää ole tarjolla), varsikin niissä taisi olla ihan riittävän pitkä. :)

Domennie: Thank you so much! I really want to try how a white undershirt would look with this dress, perhaps it would bring "the rib bones" out a little more. ;)

PUNKIE: Thank you! It is, isn't it? :)

Eva Ana: I hope she went crazy in a good way hehehe. ;)

Caroliina: Oi kun ihana kommentti, piristit juuri ankeata sunnuntaitani huomattavasti. :) Kiitos kovasti itsellesi ja ollos hyvä vaan! :)

Neva products: Thank you! :)

Linda Sofia: Kiitti!:)

Kingaaaa: Thank you! I'm in love with it too, it's so versatile. :)

Cafe noir: Thank you! I'm glad that you like the hair. ;) I have some artificial help in there but I've been growing it out as well. I also got a haircut and changed my bangs back to the old style, I think they complement my square face more this way. :) We had some snow here but it melted away and now it's just been raining for days. I hate this time of the year, it's so dark, wet and depressing here in Finland! It's especially bad for this blog, when there is only about 4 hours of daylight (which is usually spent inside the office, blaah)...heh.

Uniqua: Thank you very much!:)

Chloe: Yeah it is! :) Thank you, we had a blast last night, now I need some rest. ;)

I can't stop staring at the COS cuff - how much was it? How is it possible to create so many unique pieces, I love COS!!!

This dress fits your style perfectly, nice pick.

P.S. How you manage to keep you complexion so sexy?

Upea, upea asu! Heh, mä olin alkuviikosta kassajonossa Barcelonassa tuon COSin rannekorun ja parin mekon kanssa (istuivat päälle kuin valettu!), mutta sitten huomasin pesumerkintälapusta että COS on ruotsalainen. Kiikutin koko saaliin takaisin rekkeihin koska olin päättänyt ostaa espanjalaisia vaatteita kun siellä kerran ollaan. Mä en oikeasti ollut koskaan ennen kuullutkaan COSista. Miten voi olla mahdollista?! :)

Frickys: Thanks!:) COS's pricing was about the same as Zara's but the quality of the garments was much better. This bracelet was about 10-20 euros or so, if I remember correctly. It was an impulse buy but I'm so happy I got it, the rough metal looks sooo good with everything. About the complexion..hmm.. I still have some tan on my body from summer and then I use foundation to keep my skin looking even. I reallu don't know, I guess it's just how I am?:D

THE DIVINITUS: Thank you so much!:)

Raakel: Kiitos!:)

Fashionstyle: Thank you!:)

NinaV: Kiitos, kiitos. :) No höh, olisit vaan kiikuttanut ne mukaasi. ;) Ei vais, mulla oli Barcassa ihan sama juttu, halusin vain paikallista..ihme päähän pinttymä sekin. :D Mäkin luin COS:sta ekan kerran vissiin Essin Fashion Overdosesta, mutta en ole tajunnut miten olen voinut elää tähän asti ilman sitä! Taidan seuraavalla Berliinin reissulla ostaa koko kaupan tyhjäksi..

Mackie: Thanks! That's what I love about it too. :)

Fuksjanna: Thank you. ;)

Sha: Black is always the new black, at least in my wardrobe. ;)
