Little Black Riding Hood



Some wintry outfit snaps from a snowy walk, featuring my new winter shield. I was wearing the fluffiest thing in my wardrobe for the very first time, Solveig coat by Tiia Vanhatapio. It's a special Christmas gift found by me and sponsored by my folks. I've been craving for a soft, hooded mantel for so long and then this one popped right before my eyes, an extinct creature from an older collection of one of my favourite designers. Lucky me!

winter coat ~ Tiia Vanhatapio (second hand) /  leggings ~ Actual Pain / boots ~ eBay / gloves ~ second hand / bag ~ Lindex

The massive hood offers a soft sanctuary from the cold winds and cold glares. The voluminous texture and dark purple lining (which you can't see here) give it an ounce of drama and most importantly, it's warm. And it makes me look a bit like I've escaped from the pages of Where the Wild Things Are or some other fairytale, so that's a wild bonus. Looking like a monster without being one sounds like a good plan.

  9. onpas upea takki! jotenkin arvasin että Tiia Vanhatapiolta ;) suunnittelijan tyylin tuntien en ole ollenkaan yllättynyt että kuuluu lemppareihisi! takki sopii kyllä sulle kuin nenä päähän :) ompelijana kiinnostaa materiaali, tekoturkista?

    1. Kiitoksia! Vanhatapion tuotoksia olen saanut muutaman haalittua second handina kaappiin, uusiin ei olisi ihan heti varaa. Tykkään kyllä kovasti erityisesti noista vanhemmista mallistoista. :)

      Takki on villablendiä, tekoturkis on ulkonäöltään niin lähellä aitoa etten ole sellaista kehdannut ostaakaan kun tulee jotenkin inha olo. Tässä takissa on vähän sellaista tunnelmaa mut lähemmällä tarkastelulla näkee nopsaan että langasta on kyse. :)

    2. no nyt kun sanoit niin aivan! äkkiä katsottuna oli kuin jotain erikoisen näköistä tekoturkista. todella mielenkiintoisen näköinen ja oloinen materiaali, tulisikohan vastaan jossain... alkoi kiinnostaa millaista tuollaista olisi työstää :)

    1. Ostin nämä yli pari vuotta sitten niin en löytänyt ebay-tiedoistani enää myyjää. Mutta toivottavasti löydät ne, tykitä vain erilaisilla näihin liittyvillä hakusanoilla niin uskon että popot tupsahtaa vielä esiin. :)

    1. Voi ei, älä turhaan inhoa itseäsi. :( Jokaisessa ihmisessä on ihania ja kauniita puolia, itseinho kuluttaa ihmistä hirveän paljon. Kannattaa keskittyä hyviin puoliin, oon aivan varma että niitä löytyy jos hieman tutkiskelee! <3
