An era can be said to end when its basic illusions are exhausted.

Helsinki, 20 degrees

This sunny Wednesday I enjoyed a work welfare day at work at one of Helsinki's most beautiful islands called Seurasaari. This island is unique since it has both Finnish forest on it, as well as an open air museum showcasing rural wooden houses from the 18th century. It was such a fun day, I really enjoyed it!

Lately I've been fascinated with the 20's theme that I keep on running into. I've always been in love with this particular era, as I'm sure all girly girls are thanks to the amazing dresses and accessories there were then. I already talked about this obsession in my earlier post here. This fall the 20's will be on everybody's lips since the awaited movie "The Great Gatsby" will have its premiere. This is one of the movies I'm waiting the most for this fall, how about you?


I also found this beautiful editorial called "Cat's Meow" presenting stunning 20's themed outfits!



Isn't it just so inspirational? What era's clothing or accessories do you like the most?

  2. well, I think I'm not going to watch that movie but I did watch "W.E." recently. it's about 30's and nowadays at the same time and one of the authors is Madonna. I enjoyed that film and the styling very much but unfortunately didn't see the whole thing since it was on TV.
    to be honest I don't even have a favourite era when it comes to clothing. almost every era has it's own beautiful pearls.
    oh and of course I have been to Helsinki! I have relatives there and in Kuopio as well and I have been to Finland SO many times. my father even used to work there when I was a little girl and we stayed at a beautiful farm :)

    1. I was meaning more like everyday design, e.g. dishes and glass ware, do you have that? Maybe wooden design?
      Thank you for the compliment!
