if i did it once, could i do it again ... skirt


now that i have managed to manifest the tunnel skirt in cotton jersey (the skirt above) by wishing for it, i am going to see if i can manifest the amazing skirt in cotton jersey by wishing for it. here goes: oh how i wish that the amazing skirt came in cotton jersey. p.s. preferably black cotton jersey.

i am wearing the seattle tunic, square jacket and tunnel skirt by kaliyana (a/w helsinki collection). my boots are the rectangle boot (closed collection) by trippen.

mini tropical heat wave dress



every year, no matter how much i may look forward to fall weather, and, with its arrival, the return of layering clothes, i always wish for at least one or two more opportunities before september comes to a close to wear some summer outfits. my home city experienced a two-day heat wave recently. on one of these two days, i put on my sooo summer tropical heat wave dress.

i am wearing a dress (s/s 2013), the amazing skirt (s/s monterey collection) and the brilliant jacket (s/s sorrento collection) by kaliyana. my boots are the cylinder boot (box collection) by trippen.

i am wearing the horizon jacket, the pelican top and the amazing skirt by kaliyana (all s/s monterey collection). my shoes are the graphic shoe (closed collection) by trippen.

the first day after labour day skirt (and jacket)




it is unusual that on the first day after labour day it is actually cool enough to wear something from some autumn/winter collection. well, this year, the first day after labour day was cool enough to wear something from some autumn/winter collection. so there was an added spring (my apologies) to my step on this year's first day after labour day.

i am wearing the nagoya dress (a/w helsinki collection), the modena top (s/s monterey collection), the amazing skirt (s/s monterey collection) and the veronica jacket (a/w helsinki collection) by kaliyana. my boots are the cylinder boot (box collection) by trippen.

how to make it different (if even slightly) top



on the day that i wore this outfit, i woke up, ruled out a planned outfit (which, in retrospect, i should have gone with because it would have been more appropriate for moving offices), tried out a brand spanking new outfit (which i felt guilty about wearing before autumn officially arrived because it is from the new autumn/winter collection) and finally decided that i would be most comfortable wearing what i had worn for the past two days. "really, the same thing?" asked the mini-me with horns and a tail sitting on one of my shoulders. "there is nothing wrong with wearing the same thing," countered the mini-me with the halo sitting on my other shoulder. "yes, probably, no one will even notice," jeered the mini-me with horns and a tail. the mini-me with horns and a tail won this round, and i began thinking of how i could make wearing the same thing somehow wearing something different if even just slightly. and then i had it: add the top. even the mini-me with the halo had to admit that it was not bad, not bad at all.

i am wearing the neck tie dress, the pelican top and the amazing skirt (all s/s monterey collection) by kaliyana. my boots are the cylinder boot (box collection) by trippen.

my current favourite skirt





i liked the result when i combined this dress (and jacket) with a black tunnel skirt.  but when i combined this dress (and jacket) with the amazing skirt, well, the result was (at least in my opinion) simply amazing.

i am wearing the neck tie dress (s/s monterey collection), brilliant jacket (s/s sorrento collection) and amazing skirt (s/s monterey collection) by kaliyana. my boots are the cylinder boot (box collection) by trippen.
