Bowled over

[YOU ARE READING MY 100th POST!]

I made these 2 bows today- the bigger one is a pin and smaller is a barette.




Tummaks löödud

[OLED LUGEMAS MU 100ndat POSTITUST!]


Tegin täna need kaks lipsu- suurem on rinnanõel ja väiksem juuksenõel.

If you have passion for beauty

This book I chose is "Rico Puhlmann a Fashion Legacy: Photographs and Illustrations 1955-1996" by William A. Ewing and Adelheid Rasche.


http://www.librabooksandart.com/bookimages/nr.167.jpg

It's a lavishly illustrated retrospective of one of the greatest international fashion photographers. From the 1950s until his death in the crash of TWA Flight 800 in 1996, Puhlmann worked with most of the top models, stylists and designers in the fashion industry.

Features arresting portraits of Isabella Rossellini, Cindy Crawford, Cheryl Tiegs, Mel Gibson, Calvin Klein, Jerry Hall, Naomi Sims and many others.


Kuitunned kirge ilu vastu

Külluslikult illustreeritud tagasivaade ühest suurima ülemaailmsest moefotograafist. Alates 1950'st kuni tema surmani TWA lennuõnnetuses 1996'l aastal töötas Puhlmann enamike supermodellide, stilistide ja disaineritega moetööstuses.

Sisaldab kütkestavaid portreesid Isabella Rossellini'st, Cindy Crawford'ist, Cheryl Tiegs'ist, Mel Gibson'ist, Calvin Klein'ist, Jerry Hall'ist, Naomi Sims'ist ning paljudest teistest.

Feathered

I finished with my today's DIY project.
I wanted it to be more over the top, but, eh, it befits too.
It was meant to be just a headband, but I sewed a safety pin behind it so it has many options:
  1. Headband
  2. -n-
  3. Belt
  4. Pin

[ps. i smell like a cotton candy right now, swweeet!]

Sulgedega ehitud

Lõpetasin oma DIY projektiga.
Tahtsin, et see oleks rohkem ülepakutud, aga, noh, kõlbab kah.
See pidi algselt olema lihtsalt peapael, aga ma õmblesin sellele haaknõela taha ja nüüd on sellel rohkem võimalusi:
  1. Peapael
  2. -n-
  3. Vöö
  4. Pross

Cultural

Today we went to see the movie "El camino de los ingleses" ("Summer Rain"). I have to say that I didn't like it. May be I just didn't understand it the way Antonio Banderas wanted me to, but still, It wasn't as good as I thaugh it would be.




[EL+CAMINO+DE+LOS+INGLESES2.jpg]

So we tried to compensate it with 6 hours of shopping. I didn't buy much- 2 hairbands, nailpolish, a school diary and materials for my DIY project.





Kultuurne

Täna käisime vaatamas filmi "El camino de los ingleses" ("Suvevihm"). Ütleks, et mulle see ei meeldinud. Võibolla ma ei saanud sellest lihtsalt nii aru, nagu Antonio Banderas oleks tahtnud, aga siiski, see polnud nii hea, kui ootasin.

Niisis püüdsime seda kompenseerida 6 tunnise shopinguga. Ei ostnud eriti midagi- 2 patsikummi, küünelaki, koolipäeviku ja materjalid mu tänaseks DIY projektiks.

Toast And Marmalade For Tea

Feeling turquoise today. I feel like summer is finally here, in Estonia! And I can finally start wearing...summery clothes.



Suvi oleks nagu lõpuks Eestis. Ja on viimane aeg suvelikke riideid kandma hakata...

Inget Stoppar Oss Nu

I'm back from Sweden. The trip was AWESOME!
We stayed in a lovely hotel called Utbygården, near Rättvik.

I finally got to wear Estonian national clothes too! (I didn't wear Muhu's clothes, I wore my hometown's clothes, though)

The festival was just GREAT! I fell in love with national costumes of England and I got to perform in them after learning one of their dances.

Furthermore is saw Italian and Georgian nc's. If we would have stayed for 3 more days I would have seen Venezuela's and Japan's performances, but we didn't :(.


I didn't have much time for shopping. The only things I bought were gifts for friends-family and one T-shirt and a Dalahorse pin for myself.

Going to Sweden is always so much fun :D. This time we saw a ice show on our cruise which was fabulous, esp. the costumes. Just gorgeous! :D

What else did we do...We visited Nus Näs, a place where all the Dalahorses are made...and Falun's copper mine, Uppsala with all it's castles-churces and everything, Vemdalen and Mora.



I will add pictures of my costume later.
Hiljem lisan oma riietest rohkem pilte.




Everybody was very fond of these things :D
Kõikidele meeldisid need asjad... :D




Italian flag salute
Itaalia liputervitus


Cruise
Kruiis

"Hot on Ice"


English dancers
Inglise tantsijad



Olen Rootsist tagasi. Reil oli ÄGE! Ööbisime hotellis nimega Utbygården, Rättvik'i lähedal. Sain lõpuks ka eesti rahvariideid kanda! (Mitte Muhu omasid, aga enda kodukoha omi)

Festival oli VÄGA tore! Armusin Inglise rahvariietesse ja õppisin ühe nende tantsu ära ja sain sellega esineda :D.
Lisaks nägin itaalia ja Gruusia rahvariideid. Kui oleks veel 3-ks päevaks jäänud oleks näinud ka Venezuela ja Jaapani esinemisi, aga me ei jäänud.

Shoppamiseks mul palju aega polnud. Ostsin ainult sõpradele-perele kingid ja endale ühe T-särgi ja Dalahobuse märgi.

Rootsis käimine on alati NII lõbus, seekord nägime kruiisil jääshow'd, mis oli vahva, eriti kostüümid. Lihtsalt suurepärane. :D

Mis mee veel tegime...Külastasime Nus Näs-i, kohta kus kõik Dalahobused valmistatakse...ja Faluni vasekaevandust, Uppsalat, kõikide ta kirikute-lossidega ja kõigega, Vemdalenit ja Morat.

Cruiser

Britt told me this skirt was perfect for riding my cruiser bike [which I don't have (yet)] on cobblestoned streets of Old Town.





Lantija

Britt ütles, et see seelik on perfektne mu kruiisirattaga [mida mul pole (veel)] munakivi teedel vanalinnas sõitmiseks.

Escape

Britt stayed over and in the morning I decided to give her a (not so) extreme makeover, which turned out to be just looking through old Vogues and dressing up. After that we went out to buy chocolate, but that turned into running on my platforms (I felt like a true Spice Girl).




Põgenemine

Britt jäi minu juurde ja hommikul otsustasin talle (mitte nii väga) totaalse muutumise teha, mis kujunes vanade Vogue'de vaatamiseks ja dressuppimiseks. Peale seda läksime välja šokolaadi ostma, aga see kujunes omakorda platvormidel jooksmiseks (tundsin end nagu tõeline Spice Girl).

Britt's 5 selfs

Here are the results of our Extreme Makeover I 'm talking about in my next post.



Briti 5 mina

Siin on Totaalse Muutumise (vaata järgmist postitust) tulemused.

Folks

Here's the dress I made for you, Britt.
I hope YOU like it, because I think it came out REALLY bad. I'm really really sorry :D
It's the last time I made a pattern myself, from now on I'm only going to use Burdas and my SIMPLICITY! :D


Rahvas

Britt, siin on kleit mis ma tegin.
Ma loodan, et SULLE meeldib, sest mina arvan, et see tuli väga halvasti välja. Palun anna andeks :D
See on viimane kord kui ise lõike teen, nüüd kasutan ainult Burdasid ja oma SIMPLICITY't! :D

Fleapit

YOU'LL NEVER GUESS WHAT I FOUND IN OUR CELLAR!
Today me and my DEAR friend Britt decided to go there again, this time equipped with rubber gloves. And we found this extra thick edition of Simplicity, from January 1958!

And when my mom came home I showed her what I had found. She was like "I knew it was there the whole time." SHE KNEW! And she never told me...And now I think of all the times when I thaught where in the earth I could find patterns for dresses from the fifties. "You didn't know. I used to make dresses for the paper dolls from there."


It's incredibly thick
See on uskumatult paks


Few of MANY dresses I loved
Mõned PALJUDEST kleitidest, mis mulle meeldisid




My favourite wedding gown
Mu lemmik pulmakleit


Britt favourite
Briti lemmik



Keldrikino

TE EI ARVA IIAL ÄRA MIS ME KELDIST LEIDSIME!
Täna otsustasime mu kalli sõbra Britiga uue katse teha ja seekord varustasime end kummikinnastega. Ja leisime selle eriti paksu Simplicity väljaande, Jaanuarist 1958!


Ja täna kui mu ema koju tuli näitasin ma talle, mis ma olin leidnud. "Ma teadsin kogu aeg, et see on seal." TA TEADIS! Ja ta ei öelnud mulle...Ja nüüd mõtlen ma kõigile nendele kordadele kui ma mõtesin, et kust küll võiks leida lõikelehti viiekümnendate kleitidele. "Sa ei teadnud. Ma tegin kunagi pabernukkudele kleite selle järgi."
And when my mom came home I showed her what I had found. She was like "I knew it was there the whole time." SHE KNEW! And she never told me...And now I think of all the times when I thaught where in the earth I could find patterns for dresses from the fifties. "You didn't know. I used to make dresses for the paper dolls from there."

Make a dress

I once started making a dress. Then my sewing machine broke and till yesterday I had to live without sewing. It was a torment. Well, so yesterday I found some cut pieces and sew them together. Here's what turned out.









Tee kleit

Hakkasin üks kord kleiti tegema. Siis mu õmblusmasin lakkas töötamast ja kuni eilseni pidin elama ilma õmblemiseta. See oli piin. Igatahes, eile leidsin ma mingid lõigatud tükid ja õmblesin need kokku. Välja tuli kleit.

Dry cleaning

I'm sure that you agree with me when I say that cleaning your closet is the hardest thing. You are 99% sure, that you're not going to wear half of the things, never, but there's always the 1% that makes you not give up on your clothes.

Little report what happened when we tried to clean Britt's closet.

[a2.jpg]
"OMG! It's size 8, IT's GONNA FIT ME!!!"
"I'm not sure...It's probably shirt for 8 months old children ..."

http://img8.imageshack.us/img8/3096/89481448.jpg
"You're not helping me! You're just putting on everything you find!"
"I'm helping you! Sort of..."

[a3.jpg]
Here comes another sailoresque outfit...

[a6.jpg]

[a8.jpg]
"Oh lord, it's the Happy Hooker!"

Since Britt's clothes were just AWESOME, I decided to go to the CELLAR! A place where I (probably) had to face my biggest fear- INSECTA!

I found the most gorgeous bag filled with clothes, but it had spiderweb on it, so i couldn't touch it.
So my catch was...

[a4.jpg]
I'm telling you- It was even scarier in real life.

Another dress that I found was this blue one. Its material is...freaky. But other than that it looked pretty.
[a5.jpg]


And finally...THE BOOTS! (4 sizes too small)

Keemiline puhastus

Ma olen kindel, et te nõustute minuga, kui ütlen, et kapi koristamine on kõige raskem. Oled 99% kindel, et ei kanna seda riiet kunagi, aga alati jääb see 1%...

Üleval on reportaaž Briti kapi koristusest.

Kuna Britt leidis nii lahedaid asi, otustasin minna oma KELDRISSE!
Kohta, kus (arvatavasti) pidin vasti seisma oma suurimale hirmule- PUTUKATELE!

Leidsin nagu väga kena koti, täidetud riietega, aga sellel oli ämblikuvõrk, niiet seda ma ei puutunud.

¡hola!

Õllesummer was great, Franz Ferdinand was even better. It was just so much fun and now my stomach is aching of laughing, honestly.

We made pictures with EVERY mascot we saw and tried LOTS of wigs.


FF was extremely good and so was the audience, but I somehow got in the middle of mosh pit and I had to leave when my foot started bleeding. Then I went to sit down, but in front of us were few Latvians, who had come to the rock concert, but gave us weird looks when we sang along or cheered, I didn't understand.


But since it can't be put in words, here are some pictures.



"When I woke up tonight I said I'm gonna make somebody love me..."




Banana from Spain
Banaan Hispaaniast




I got to the semi finals...gave up then :D
Jõudsin poolfinaali, seal andsin alla :D





Õllesummer oli VÄGA hea, Franz Ferdinand veel parem. Nii lõbus oli, et mu kõht vlutab nüüd naerust, ausalt.

Tegime pilte IGA maskotiga, keda me nägime ja proovisime pähe PALJU parukaid.


FF oli nii hea, publik oli ka, aga kuidagi suutsin ma sattuda moshingu keskele ja pidin istuma minema kui jalg veritsema hakkas. Meie ees olid mingid lätlased, kes tulid küll rokk kontserdile, aga vaatasid meid imelikult, kui me kaasa laulsime või kiljusime, ei saanudki nüüd aru.


Aga kuna kõike ei sa sõnadesse panna, siis üleval on pilte ka.


PS! INDERK GALETIN TEGI MEIST PILTI :D NAGU UOU! (ehk siis oli see väga välja pressitud pilt, selline heyoo oleme siin, aga vahet pole...)
