I was travelling again over the weekend, can't seem to be able to stay out of Helsinki for very long. After seeing some live music, friends and family I came back in the hours of the night, and found a package of pages waiting for me. Some books and comics, the usual vice. My mind said a resounding "NO" for the order as it saw the stacks of books piling next to the bookshelf, but curiosity didn't listen to any rational thoughts. And so the pile grew.
I started with Hollow City this morning, the sequel for Peculiar Children. (Thank you Marie S for the hint, I may not have noticed the publication without you!) Peculiar Children was a treat to read, so we'll see if this book can hold the candle to its predecessor. This book also has those wonderful, bizarre vintage photos inside, carrying the plot forward and tickling the mind.

I mashed today's outfit here as well, as it was slightly inspired by the feeling of the story. I can sense a mild granny mode kicking in again, recently I've been wearing my vintage blouses and curls and drinking tea a little more than usual. The velvet pumps are a recent gift from a friend. I only wish I could use them outside or on some festive occasion already! That, and being able to levitate.
What kind of peculiar skill would you pick, if you could? I'm curious! I think I'd go with telekinesis.
