"I guess some people are just born with tragedy in their blood"

dress ~ Skeleton Key Dress by Lip Service  /  trench coat ~ Asos  /  shoes ~ Arrogant Minnie
bag ~Lindex  / necklace ~Etsy (Dahlia Deranged)


Saturday night's outfit, featuring spine heels, little black velvety dress and hair that was still partly wet after the shower. Well, sometimes there's just not enough minutes for a proper hairdo! We also had about five minutes to take the outfit pics before the dark night wolfed down what remained of the daylight. 

And when the darkness fell upon this part of the world, we had a truly relaxed and fun night! Just the two of us hanging out at home couch and celebrating my birthday. With loads of delicious drinks and some great autumnal movies, naturally. Including one special favorite, Donnie Darko. If you haven't seen it, you definitely should! It's simply brilliant, the characters, the soundtrack, the quotes, the philosophy of time travel and the whole package really, I love it. And I swear that I'm going to dress up as Frank some Halloween!




This year's costume for All Hallows Eve is already decided, can't wait to put it on. It just needs a few adjustments and I'm good to go! Have you got any plans for your costume yet? :)

  1. Upeita kuvia! Ja nuo kengät, voi että miten nastat! :) Minullakin on suurin piirtein Halloween-puku suunniteltu jo! Maltan tuskin odottaa

    1. Voi kiitos! Asukuvilla oli hirveä kiire tuon hupenevan valomäärän takia mutta mukava kuulla jos onnistuivat. :) Mulla on tuon yhden Halloween-puvun lisäksi mietinnässä pari muutakin mahdollista asua, ei kurpitsajuhlaa voi varmaan liikaakaan juhlia. Joka viikonpäivälle eri asu, joo!

    1. He just bought it from the liquor store, at the imported beer shelf. He likes trying out different brands and picked this polish one this time, I had never heard of this brand before. :)

  4. That trench coat is fabulous and those little booties! Words Fail!! :D

  5. I am still drooling on that colours, you said it was a matter of minutes, and it really must have been, because colours like that are quite rare on a photo and the contrast with your outfit ( which is amazing btw ) are just too pretty for words, great moment.
    Donnie Darko is <3 , everytime i see it a new question pops out on my head.
    This year i decided i won't do a costume, but I really wanna see what you reserved us this year, the last mummy outfit was breathtaking.
    Regards

    1. Thanks so much for your kind words! But the colours look more vibrant because I alter the brightness and contrast in my photos to make the quality better, the original ones were slightly greyer. So I enchanced the photos, but the original colours are amazing too. :) Nature is at it's best in the autumn. <3

      I'm also glad to hear there's other Darko fans out there! And I've got something special coming up, I just need one little thing to make it whole. If that thing doesn't arrive in time I'll have to come up with something else instead!

  6. Gorgeous pictures, perfect outfit and beautiful makeup! The orange leaves are so bright they're literally screaming! I love Donnie Darko, I did a painting of Frank when I did Art & Design in College, I wish I still had it but it's been lost over the years through relocating a few times! Birthdays spent with the one you love are sometimes more memorable than a house party, I much prefer a quiet birthday myself! ~♥~

    1. Thanks so much! Sorry to hear your painting got lost in the moving boxes, I hate it when things disappear like that. :/ I prefer a more quiet birthday too (although I love to party), it's wonderful to throw crazy parties for Halloween or some mutual achievements, but my own birthday is a different thing. Don't know why, it just is!

  8. Ihana asu! :) Mie tykkään kans syksyisin pitää trenssiä ja jotain vähän erikoisempia kenkiä sen kanssa, tai vaihtoehtoisesti laukkua. :>> Väliäkös sillä, hyvin istuva trenssi on aina upean näköinen kantajallaan.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Kiitoksia! :> Trenssi on kyllä uskomattoman monikäyttöinen takki! Erityisesti miellyttää silmää nämä vähän oudommin leikatut mallit, tässäkin yksilössä on pidempi helma ja nyörit takana.

  9. Tell your friend that he had to try another polish beers, better than Żywiec - Koźlak, dark and very tasty in good looking bottle http://smakiwiejskie.pl/mod/77/cPath/14_70_147/pID/242/t/pP or Lady Blanche, another cool bottle http://www.alebrowar.pl/en/piwa/lady-blanche/

  10. Halloweenasu on mietitty valmiiksi, enää pari pikkujuttua pitäisi hankkia. Halloweenin ohella juhlitaan paremman puoliskon kolmekymppisiä joten toivottavasti myös vieraat panostavat asuihinsa. Itse asiassa täytyy myöntää että olen jo ottanut joitakin halloween-koristeita pois piilostaan, muun muassa kirjahylly on nyt miehitetty hämähäkeillä :)

    1. Sama juttu täällä, pari pientä mutta elintärkeää juttua vielä puuttuu asusta. Ja jos eivät saavu ajallaan (toista juttua on mahdoton tuunata itse) niin pitää keksiä jotain muuta, mun tuurillahan käy juuri näin. :D

      Toivottavasti teillä tulee mahtavat bileet, ei varmaan ole parempaa tapaa juhlia uutta vuosikymmentä kuin Halloween!

  12. so damn gorgeous, love that pretty trenchcoat and - of course everytime i see them in your blog - the great spine ankleboots... hope, I will find a pair of them in my size... one day... (most of them are available max. size 39 ... and I have 40 *sigh*)

    autumn is one of the best times in the year to wear pretty coats, boots and tights ♥

    1. Thank you! I'm sure you'll find these shoes in your size someday. And actually their sizing is quite big, so if your shoe size is more to 39,5 then the 39 might even fit, who knows. :)

    Sadly I have a depression and have not the energy to think much about Halloween. I just prepare as much as I can. Can't wait to see what you are up to :)

    1. Oh sweetie, I'm sorry to hear that. :< Depression is a fiendish visitor, I hope you feel better soon! And don't stress too much about the preparations, I'm sure the holiday will go greatly without too much pressure.

      And thank you for the compliments! I can't wait to wear my costume, please come quickly, Halloween!

  18. Reading the comments above I see I'm not the only reader from Poland :) I also smiled when I saw that bottle of Żywiec. And that also reminded me how difficult it is for non-Polish people to prenounce the name! How funny it sounds :)
    As for drinks and names - can you tell me why the vodka and Sibelius's piece of music are called "Finlandia" (and btw so is Polish name for your country), when you call Finland Suomi? Is Finlandia also a Finnish name, a kind of old one for example?
    Lovely pictures, I adore autumn. Even if it seems grey and withering. You call it ruska, right? :)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I can only wonder how it's pronounced! I had fun time trying. :D Polish sounds and looks interesting, I'm fascinated by different languages and sadly there's so little time in this life to learn everything I'd like to.

      And for your question, I have no idea. It might be something that the Swedes called this land when it was still young, and the word lived on. Suomi is called Finland in most languages, with different variations of course, so I guess that comes from there.

      And yes, it's ruska! Ugly word for such a beautiful thing.

    2. Pronunciation of this word is a funny story. I remember our American teacher told us once a ridiculous word and asked to think what Polish word prenounced by English people it could be. After a while of silent confusion someone whispered shyly "Żywiec"? And then we only laughed, because it is indeed hard to use English rules for that.
      'Ż' is similar to 'j' in French 'je'. 'Y' is similar to Finnish, 'w' in Polish is always prenounced like 'v'. Then 'i-e' like in Finnish and 'c' like 'tz' in English. I know it's not easy (: So this is a name for the beer and a town where the brewery is located.
      I sometimes think the same way - there's so many fascinating things we never experience in full in such short lifetime... Though immortality doesn't seem a good solution either!

  19. Ohhhohhoh sulla on kyllä UPIA HIUS jos saan mainita. :D Ekaa kertaa kurkkasin tänne ja pakko myöntää että taidanpa alkaa ihan seuraamaan! Yleensä harmittaa kaikissa gootti-subkategorian blogeissa se, että ne on ulkoasuiltaan ja kuviltaan aika kökköä, mutta sun blogi on pjuur lööv!

  23. Tietenki on jo Halloween asu suunniteltuna ja sitä ootan kuin kuuta nousevaa! Miten aiot toteuttaa Frankin maskin?

    1. Kiva kuulla! Frankia en toteuta ainakaan tänä vuonna, mutta ajattelin muotoilla jostain vahasta/savesta ja maalaan sitten hopeiseksi. Vaatii aika paljon puuhaa mutta on varmasti sen arvoinen. :)

  24. En voi olla kysymättä, että millaiset noi (kopio)kengät on kävellä? Itseäni kun epäilyttää aina että kopiot ei vaan voi olla hyvät jalassa, mutta ei mulla kyllä mihinkään aitoihinkaan rahaa ole :D

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Kelläpä olisi :D Ymmärtääkseni näitä kopioita on liikkeellä erilaisia, ebaysta saa vähän halvemmalla muttei ole tietääkseni aitoa nahkaa kuten AM:n kopiot, en tosin mene varmaksi sanomaan. Mun mielestä näillä on todella hyvä kävellä, olen huidellut kaupungilla tuntejakin eikä jalkoja ole kummemmin väsyttänyt. :) Sisälmys on pehmustettu ja platform nostaa sen verran ettei ole liian jyrkkä korko.

  27. Donnie Darko! Näin tämän leffan ekaa kertaa ollessani mahd. 7 luokalla ja tykkäsin siitä jo sillon, vaikka ehkä elokuvan syvin ei sillon auennukkaan. Luulin sitä silloin kauhuelokuvaksi :D Ja en malta oottaa että saan tietää millanen halloween asu siulla on!

  29. I'm a bit late to the party but Happy Birthday! I always love finding out another person online is an october baby. :) Autumn is just the best.

    Donnie Darko is fantastic! Which scene is your favorite? I think the one where the portals come out and he realizes what he's seeing is my favorite.

    1. Thank you! I agree, none of the other seasons can match to autumn. :)

      I have so many favorite scenes that it's really hard to pick just one. But one that comes into my mind is the lifeline lesson! And the scene where Donnie calls Jim Cunningham as Anti-christ. :D And of course, the movie theatre scene with Frank.
