Helsinki Vintage

Helsinki, 2 degrees


We are born at a given moment, in a given place and, like vintage years of wine, we have the qualities of the year and of the season of which we are born. Astrology does not lay claim to anything more.

Last Sunday we took the bloggers to Helsinki Vintage, an eventful sales event, that gathers friends of the vintage culture twice a year under the same roof. This time, the event was held in a cool setting, the old industrial halls at the Cable Factory. Despite my hosting, I ended up buying a short model vintage kimono, an embroidered handbag and some black leather winter boots that I'll show you in future blog posts.

  1. Ihania kuvia, etenkin nuo viimeiset (sinun ottamat?) Ostokset kuulostaa erittäin kivoilta, en malta odottaa ! Käyttäisin kyllä enemmänkin vintage -vaatteita ja asusteita. Monet mekot vain ovat hurjan pienesti mitoitettuja niin harvemmin niitä tullut hankittua.. Laukkuja ja kenkiä enemmänkin, kirppareilta. :)

    1. Valitettavasti nämä kuvat eivät ole minun ottamia, en ehtinyt ottaa kuvia kun olin emännöimässä, mutta jos haluat kurkistaa Helenan blogiin (yksi bloggaajista joka kävi täällä) niin sen puolella näet hänen nappaamia kuvia, http://roomservice.blogg.se/.
      Itselläni oli taas päinvastainen ongelma, mekot olivat minulle liian isoja :D
