Matrix Coat

Today's look, originally uploaded by Pink Lady on the Loose!.
My Mom took this photo of me as I was leaving for work last week. I love my old Matrix-style leather coat and my trusted black beret. The scarf is from India (silk-pashmina mix), the purse is Longchamp - it's actually my laptop bag. I truly find most traditional laptop bags ugly so I decided to be non-conventional. Longchamp bags are strong enough to hold my PC without falling apart (as some other bags have done in the past).

Cat on loan

This cute kitty visited us last night. She had escaped from her apartment and slipped into ours late at night. We did not know who she belonged to so we put a note downstairs and her owner picked her up in the morning. Such a beautiful and friendly cat - it was great having her visit for a night.

Kitchen in Kallio apartment

I recently did a thorough deep-clean of our kitchen, so I wanted to take a photo of the finished product. The flower was a recent gift from my parents when they visited. Thanks, I love it!!

Armani Jeans

I bought this pair of Armani Jeans on a trip to Paris more than four years ago, but I have not been able to wear them for a couple of years since I did not fit into them. I've now lost around 10 kgs and can finally fit into them again! They cost nearly 200 euros, so it's great to be able to wear them again. Sweater from Pierre Cavallo (sample sale), ankle boots from Pierre Cardin (bought on sale years ago on a business trip to Munich, Germany).

Today's outfit

Lacy top: Lindex (on sale)
Sweater: bought many years ago from either Greece or Cyprus
Pants: H&M (on sale)
Boots: Rizzo (half off)
Purse: Fornarina (from Tallinn, Estonia, on sale)
Necklace: from India
Earrings: From Canada, I've had them since I was a teenager. They are like tea strainers in the shape of hearts! Should do a close-up of them...

Thrifted leather jacket

This is my version of the distressed leather jacket, bought last year for only a couple of euros from the thrift store UFF. They had one of their end-of-season sales and every single thing in the store sold for 3 euros (or whatever the exact sum was). Pants from H&M (on sale), scarf was a gift from my trusted taylor in Bangalore, India. He said it's pashmina (which is really expensive). I'm not sure if it's 100% pashmina wool, but it sure is soft. Boots from Rizzo (at 50% off). The bag is a brand called Formarina from Tallinn, Estonia and it was also on sale at something like 70% off. Bangle from Palolem Beach, Goa, India - made from a coconut.

Distressed leather jacket

Leather is great because the older it is, the better it looks.
