busy as a bee

It´s been a while since i´ve posted any news, I´ve been suuuuuuper duper busy with work and the summer collection and enjoying spring (it´s been almost 20degrees in Turin already).

I promise i´ll post some new looks tomorrow, and also a sneak peak preview of what I got in the mail directly from London for a shoot i´m styling!! (very exciting :))

I´ll leave you with a big goodnight kiss and a backstage pic from the shoot i did for the talented Aurora Allegra last week! (try to not mind the tired face, it was the fourth make-up change we did and my face was ready to lay down and die from the colours and glues and stuff!)

Remember that you can follow me on twitter aswell! (vaaraclothing)

TREND: cuts

SORRY everyone for my absence, i came back in pieces from Bologna, it was exhausting but so much fun!

Something that I´ve been thinking about to do a long time is CUTS, easy to DIY and gives a new touch to old pieces!

triple glasses

jean paul gaultier f/w 2011

haider ackermann f/w 2011

pure beautiful.

There´s quite a lot going on in every look, but I wouldn´t mind taking a piece of each outfit and combining it to something more basic!
looove the tight maxi skirt with the cut, that´s easy to make at home aswell!

We´ve seen them everywhere during this season´s fashion weeks: they´re comfy, cool, and most importantly: EASY to DIY!

Just take whatever old coat you have hanging in the wardorbe, and cut off the sleeves, cut it in pieces and unite it with parts of others coats, add some different sleeves to it, chop it, trim it, use your imagination! :) i´m gonna do one for sure aswell, from a coat I bought from the second hand market!

Isabel Marant Fall 2011


i got a job for a make-up brand at the huuuge make-up fair in Bologna this week!

I decided I´m gonna reward myself and buy one pair of these beauties when I get my paycheck :) another superb design from the italian eyewear brand!

I think i´m going for the brown or the black ones...but white are really cool too! what do you think?

I feel my skin is too light to wear red close to my face, but I REALLY want a red bottom for this summer: shorts, skirt, pants, or maybe shoes?
This summer I wanna see red combined with colours! light pink, orange, purple, blue and white!
Oh and I absolutely re-fell in love with the Bottega Veneta leather pants!So I just had to buy some beautiful fake red leather i found the other day..
You´ll see the result soon ;)

reader´s question :)

I got a question about how I ended up doing what I do!

First of all, I wanted to say I feel a bit strange writing about myself,in my head I keep thinking: naah, who would be interested in this anyway?? It´s easier to just post photos and stuff :)
Secondly, thank you for the very kind compliment!! :)

I´ve been knitting and sewing ever since I was a little girl, i got my first sewing machine when I was 12 and before that I learnt from my granmother/mom/school how to do basic knitting! It all started from a need to make clothing for myself,as I´ve always had a weird style and couldn´t find clothes that I liked from stores in Finland!

I have a twinsister (love you heidi!!) that has always been SO good at drawing, and always very creative, I guess we both just use that "creative outburst" as an expression of ourselves!

I decided to finish high-school as quick as possible, and leave Finland to try and study what had always been my main passion: fashion.

So, I headed to Turin, Italy. Why not Milan everyone always asks me?
I lived 10 months in a family near Turin when I was 16, so I knew the city and already had friends there, it was an easy place to come to!
Unfortunately, IED(Istituto Europeo di Design) didn´t fill my expectations, and I decided to change from Turin to IED Barcelona, where I finally graduated!

Now I live in Turin,work part time in a shop and at fairs, and use the rest of my time to design and create clothing and accessories for VAARA Clothing :)

SUMMER COLLECTION coming up very soon! stay tuned<3

amazing idea

check out IRINA WERNING and her project:
"I love old photos. I admit being a nosey photographer. As soon as I step into someone else’s house, I start sniffing for them. Most of us are fascinated by their retro look but to me, it’s imagining how people would feel and look like if they were to reenact them today... A few months ago, I decided to actually do this. So, with my camera, I started inviting people to go back to their future."

back from milan!

Ah feels good to be back home again!
Micam was fun, ESPECIALLY seing the whole Jeffrey Campbell f/w 2012 collection!! my gosh it was breathtaking! I can tell you there´s gonna be a lot in store for the new designs, wooden, architecture-inspired heels and much more!!

Unfortunately they didn´t let anyone take pics of the shoes (i tried believe me). :/

Anyway, I´m exhausted and off to bed in a minute (gonna write more tomorrow), but I wanted to share something that I just saw on the net with you guys first!

This RAD HOURANI Collection made my jaw DROP, he used only 6 garments to create 22 looks for his f/w collection, and it´s mindblowing!!!

check it out everyone!the video is cool aswell!

Dear readers,

I know thanks to the statistics of Google Analytics that there are surprisingly many out there reading and following my silly blog.

Anyway, I decided to "heat" things up a bit with a giveaway!

All you need to do is tell me WHICH of these two VAARA Clothing rings you would like, and why YOU should be the one recieving it in the mail!

Oh, and you can choose between these two rings, or a new SURPRISE ring ( i can only tell you it includes feathers ^^ )

well? what are you waiting for? go on, make your best at making me believe YOU should be the owner of one of the rings! don´t forget to include your email-address.
I´ll decide a winner on the 13th of March!
