Street style Helsinki. Black outfit except socks.

On wintertime we see a lot of total black outfits in Helsinki. Argyle pattern socks with diamond pattern in the shades of grey bring a little playfulness to a total black outfit.


On the Street. Sketchbook Drawings Help to Remember.

 Sometimes when I see a fab style while walking around Helsinki, I make a quick sketch to my notebook. Every lady has that certain set of stuff in their handbags. To my stuff belongs a sketchbook that I carry with me almost anywhere I go. Despite all the electronic possibilities to make notes I still prefer the old good user interface paper.

 Funny thing is that once I had made a sketch of the girl with orange skirt and yellow jeans jacket in Kamppi. I thought I would draw her better later. Weekend was busy, I didn't have time. Then Monday came and what did we see in The same girl was photographed in the same day in Old Church Park. Helsinki, small city.

Streetstyle Sketchbook Drawings

Here you have a collection of these fast taken notes. Some of them can be identified from street style -tagged posts. If I have many interesting sights in my mind at the same time, notes help not to lose them. Sometimes it's just the strong feeling of the character that carries straight to the final result.


For Fun. mbar in Helsinki is the Best.

mbar in Helsinki is the Best

I have a friend I meet occasionally, maybe once every two moths. We often go out to eat and then we may lose ourselves wandering between clothes racks in department store. Then again it's nice to stop somewhere to chill out. The place to go is always self-evident. We head to mbar. The atmosphere never fails. Smooth sounds are guaranteed.

DJ last Thursday was Jimi, thank you for the music! I started liking their Facebook-page "Better Things to Do" in hopes to get noticed if this group is playing their vinyls some place you could dance too. Besides drawing, dancing is definitely on the good side in to-do lists.
