Within her breast there launched an unnamed sorrow, And a dark and grim force set sail



Today's garments with a slightly Parisian twist, s'il vous plaît! Including current favorites; blood red lips, a little black felt beret that makes bad hair days turn out to be bloody good ones in one minute, and a turned hairdo. "Faux bob" to be exact, but my hair is so long that it turns out to be more of a medium length style. So no, I haven't cut my hair. Not yet anyway. ;)



Right now I'm longing to pack my vintage suitcase with necessities and treasures and a great book, and travel to some hidden place far far away. Or jump right into a teleporter and to an unknown destination! Wonderland would be fascinating and of course Paris will always do, but I'd love to explore and experience something new. 

But there's this insurmountable obstacle on my way that I can not cross. I've made a solemn vow of finishing my school before escaping to other lands, so that's a little bait for graduating!


shirt, skirt & belt ~ second hand (cost about 3 euros together, I love flea markets!)
bag ~ vintage (60's) / moth necklace ~ Etsy / felt beret ~ Asos (Filippo Catarzi)

Luckily there's some homeland travelling in the horizon tomorrow morning, so I won't get too restless on this matter. A small and perfectly unscheduled weekend holiday in Helsinki awaits me and my sweetheart, but I'll be gone for a whole week since I'm taking a little trip to Turku as well. And you know what that destination means. I'll be coming back with some more inked inches under my skin. 




PS: I've answered most of the Q&A post's questions (took a really long time to think about some of those, you know!) and I'll publish them some day soon. I only hope to get some photos to illustrate the posts so they won't seem too bare and lonely, so please don't expect them to show up miraculously over the weekend or during the trip.

I wish you all a wonderful week and hope to be back soon! And I will, of course, if I find a computer and an editing program somewhere in the places I'm crashing on. Here's a little farewell tune from one of the best wintertime bands:

  3. What a perfect outfit! May I ask you two indiscreet questions? I assume you're wearing a corset, how much is your waist reduced? Are you wearing a petticoat underneath this skirt? I have a very similiar skirt to yours, but it never looks this puffy no matter what I wear under it :|

    1. Thank you! Yes, I'm wearing a tulle petticoat under the skirt and yes, I wore a corset underneath. It wasn't tightened to the extreme measures so I don't know how much it took away. Pardon me but that's a very strange question to ask. :D

  4. Hyvää Helsingin-reissua ja kannustusta valmistumisurakkaan! Ainakin motivaattori on hyvä, sillä matkustaminen lienee yksi elämän parhaita juttuja. Itse pääsen tammikuussa ekaa (!) kertaa astelemaan Pariisin kujia, enkä malttaisi odottaa. Sun kauniista asusta voisinkin inspiroitua matkavaatetuksen suhteen. Ja punainen huulipuna, ehdoton! :)

    1. Voi kiitos paljon! Kunpa se valmistuminen olisikin niin helppoa, tuntuu vaan että on niin monta rautaa tulessa ettei oppariin ehdi ikinä keskittyä täydellä teholla. Nyt vaan pitää laittaa puserrus päälle! Matkamotivaattori on tosiaan sellainen että alkaa kummasti kouluhommatkin houkutella.

      Ja aivan ihanaa Pariisin reissua sulle, toivottavasti viihdyt siellä kauniilla kujilla :) Rakastan sitä kaupunkia!

    1. Voi kiitos paljon! ^^ Ja anteeksi kun vastailussa on kestänyt, en ole hirveästi koneen äärelle ehtinyt taas viime aikoina. Ja hame oli tosiaan ihan uskomattoman edullinen, ei ole kirppareiden voittanutta! <3

  7. Utterly gorgeous outfit! Very film noir and it definitely has that quintessential French style to it! You just need a well groomed poodle on a leash to complete the look! :p

    Have a fantastic week away and I'm looking forward to seeing your new skin illustration when you get back! I've been dying to get another tattoo but I haven't yet found a tattooist that I think is skilled enough to pull off what I want! ~♥~

    1. Thanks so much! I'm not so much into poodles, but I'd gladly take a pug or a French bulldog on my lap. <3

      I'm very happy with my new illustrations and you'll probably see them soon! And I'm a very lucky girl, my friend makes just the kind of tattoo style that I like.

  8. Oh I do love that little beret! Your faux middle-length hair and the victory rolls are very 'Parisienne' too! Can't wait to see what new ink you come back with and hope you have a lovely time! ♥

    1. Thank you! I had a great time and the new inks will probably pop up here soon. :) But then again, they're in such visible places that it would be hard to hide them.

    1. Kiitos paljon! Turku on ihana, en tajua miten niin monet jaksaa haukkua sitä! Mullakin on aivan tuhottoman pitkä matka sinne täältä Joensuusta, mutta on se aina sen arvoista. :)

    A while ago I had a dream that there was an animation in your blog; you and your bf walzing wildly at a masked ball, your feet in the air.
