My (unusual) working outfit. Glamorous 20s!


Löysin joku aika sitten tällaisen keltaisen mekon, joka toi niin mieleen 20-luvun charleston aikakauden. Niinpä päätin pistää sen eilen ylleni helminauhojen kera - töihin! Toki minulla oli myös neule harteilla, ettei lookini olisi ollut liian juhlava. Vaikka enimmäkseen tyylini on viimeisen parin vuoden aikana ollutkin nimenomaan 50-luku ja rockabilly vaikutteista, tykkään välillä palata vähän kaukaisempiinkin aikakausiin. 20-luku on nimittäin 50-luvun ja edwardiaanisen ajan ohella erittäin lähellä sydäntäni.

(Translation: I found this yellow dress few days ago, and it reminded me of the 20s charleston period. I wanted to wear it as soon as I could, so I decided to wear it with pearl necklaces yesterday - at work! I also had a cardigan so my look wouldn't be too formal. Even though my style has been mostly inspired by 50s and rockabilly culture in the past two years, I like to go back in time even further sometimes. The 1920s are very close to my heart right next to the 50s and edwardian era.)


Tuli tänään myös tehtyä heräteostoksia. Olin jo eilen ihaillut aivan upeaa ruokailuryhmää töissä, ja tänään - koska sitä ei kukaan ollut varannut - kävin varaamassa sen itselleni! Pöytä oli 40-luvulta, upeaa tummaa puuta, ja siinä tuli mukana 4 tummavihreää nahkapäällysteistä tuolia. Tuolit eivät ole alunperin yhdessä pöydän kanssa, mutta sopivat silti sen ympärille mainiosti!

(I did some shopping today at work. We have lots of furnitures there, old and new, and sometimes you find real gems. I had been admiring one dining table with 4 chairs for a while - and because no one had not yet made a reservation for it today - I reserved it for myself! The table is from the 40s, dark wood and so beautiful, and it came with four non-original chairs with dark green leather. The chairs go so well with that table. I am so happy!)
