|I stole my girlfriend's blouse and|
felt like a secretary from the 40s.
|I spent many hours researching this beautiful lady.|
Her name is Lia Lae and she was a Finnish actress during the
silent film era. This portrait, which dates to 1927, is from an
exhibition held at the National Audiovisual Archive.
|I had a pretty adventurous Saturday. On the morning I dumpster |
dived tens of vintage hats from various eras, 1930s and onwards.
I have since cleaned, repaired and passed on about half of them to
my friends. I kept two 40s hats for myself.
|... And then I glammed up and went to a|
burlesque gala on the same evening. Here's Jirina
looking mighty dapper in Lassi's top hat.
|I wore a lot of plaids and a lot of greens. |
Oh, and my Miss L Fire Havanas, of course.
|I saw John Waters' This Filthy World - Filthier and More Horrible|
and got my DVD copy of Female Trouble signed! Eeee!
I consider John Waters to be like my spiritual father.
|I experimented with finger waving after a long break...|
|... And filmed a video all about it|
with my partner-in-crime, Jirina.
|... And went.|
|I had an awesome David Lynch themed Halloween party.|
Pictured is Audrey Horne times two.
|I planned a vintage fashion show with|
Jirina and Elina. Here we are working on the script
with one of our models, Oona.
|7am on a Sunday morning. Me, Elina, Jirina and|
boxes full of vintage on our way to Helsinki Vintage,
where our show bowed.
|Post-show celebratory cocktails with the ladies!|
|I bought really pretty 30s shoes|
from VintagEija's at Helsinki Vintage.
|And here's something that I didn't buy.|
