Android warehouse

Back from the show. My feet is killing me and I'm having a hard time taking off the eye liner, but it was SO worth it.
Liisi Eesmaa's collection was mindblowing, so was the demonstration. And I finally got the see my all time role model/idol Liisi herself, I admire her so much.
I absolutely fell in love with Reet Aus's collection too. It was made completely out of recycled materials.
The place where the fashion show took place was really creepy from the outside and so deep yet cozy inside.

I didn't get any good pictures, I'm still gonna post few.

Olen show'lt tagasi. Mu jalad valutavad ja mul on raskusi laineri eemaldamisega, aga see on seda väärt. Vägagi.
Liisi Eesmaa kollektsioon oli meeliülendav, nagu ka selle esitlus. Ja sain lõpuks ka näha oma iidolit ja eeskuju, Liisit ise. Ma imetlen teda väga.
Ma täiesti armusin Reet Ausi kollektsiooni. See oli täiesti taaskasutatud materjalidest tehtud.
Ja moeshow leidis aset väga hirmsas kohas. Vähemalt nii tundus väljast. Kuid seest oli see päris hubane.

Culture kettle

It's DisainiÖÖ in Tallinn (Arts and Lights in Tallinn) and I'm probably going to Reet Aus' and Liisi Eesmaa's fashion show tomorrow. Two of my favorite Estonian designers in one night, it's going to be elating.

Today I went thrifting to Rapla and bought NOTHING! That was really doleful.
I promise to take pictures of thing I've bought in the last days, but you know my problem with my camera, so you'll just have to wait a bit.

Ps. Extremely talented Danny Roberts is selling prints of his AMAZING art. Go check them out HERE. If I only had a spare wall, I'd love to put the Chanel girls on it. Don't you just love it?

Kultuurikatel

Tallinnas on DisainiÖÖ ja ma arvatasti lähen Reet Ausi ja Liisi Eesma moeshow'le. Kaks mu lemmikdisainerit ühel päeval, see saab vaimustav olema.

Täna käisin Raplas triftimas ja ostin...MITTE MIDAGI! See oli väga kurvastav.
Ma luban teha pilte viimastel päevadel ostetud asjadest, aga te teate mu probleemi kaameraga, niiet peate veel natuke ootama.

Ps. VÄGA andekas Danny Roberts müüb printe oma vapustavadest maalidest. Minge uurige asja SIIN.

Since it's officially 23th (ET) - HAPPY BRITHDAY dear Britt!
She's been my best friend for 12 years (since the age of 3) and she's the gorgeous girl behing the camera who supply's me with cute earrings and vinyl records.




Remember that picture? Yep, that's also she, Britt the matching girl.

Everybody in Estonia remembers that children's Tv program called "Vanaema õunapuu otsas" (read the title). That's very inspirational nowadays.
Also- HAPPY AUTUMN!

Saying goodbye to floral dresses and skirts

Estonia is supposed to have 4 seasons containing very hot summer and extremely cold winter. Well, let's think about the summer- we had one un-rainy day and I wasn't even in Estonia on the day. Now, autumn is supposed to start in 2 days. And I'm already feeling like wearing my winter coat (which I don't have yet, because the winter's not that cold anymore and the one I used to wear is too warm for 'Estonian winter').
Anyhow, enough about whining, this is my goodbye.

The MTV baby is supposed to symbolize the cold winter that's ahead of us...Okay, I'm lying, I was just feeling random and that pretty much explains the baby.

Hüvasti lillelised kleidid ja seelikud


Eestis peaks põhimõtteliselt olema 4 aastaaega- väga kuum suvi ja eriti külm talv. Noh, mõtleme natuke suvele- meil oli 1 vihmavaha päev ja ma polnud sellel päeval isegi siin.
Nüüd peaks 2 päeva pärast algama ametlik sügis ja juba ma tahaks talve mantliga käia (mida mul pole, sest see mis mul hetkel om on liiga soe 'eesti talve' jaoks).

Igatahes, aitab vingumisest, see on mu hüvastijätt.

MTV beebi peaks sümboliseerima seda külma talve, mis meid ees ootab... Okei, valetan, mul oli lihtsalt tahtmine midagi juhuslikku pildile lisada ja see põhimõtteliselt seletab ka beebi...

The typewriter guy



That's what you get when you wake up at 6:00 am and try to look 'fashionable'
I was wearing obviously/dangerously too much make up, I carried a 7 kg typewriter through Saku and changed clothes on a railroad...

Kirjutusmasina kutt

Nii juhtub siis, kui ärkad üle kell 6 hommikul ja püüad 'moeks sobilik' välja näha...
Mu näos oli ohtlikult palju meiki, kukkusin kõrvenõgestesse, unustasin nööpnõelad maha, tassisin 7 kg kirjutusmasinat lumelaua kotis läbi Saku ja vahetasin riideid raudteel.

Guided Tour - Shopping in Tallinn

When searching for a list of boutiques, second-hands, malls, vintage boutiques, flea markets or thrift stores in Tallinn, or even Estonia you'll end up with nothing. I have found out that there's no such thing. And since so many lost souls come to my blog with that aim, I decided to put this list together.

I'm writing this list about central Tallinn, but you have to remember, that best second-hands, costume stores and vintage boutiques are not situated in central Tallinn. If you are planning to take a grand tour of those you should count on cities like Rapla (my favorite for vintage shopping, and is not far from Tallinn), Viljandi (beautiful and full of small stores, but far from Tallinn), Tartu (really-really beautiful city, you should def. visit it!) or Elva (pretty small and common, but filled with small shops)

So here it goes:
  1. Reet Aus - Müürvahe 19, Old Town (map)

    Her goal is to create for needs, not to create needs. Important keywords are environment, locality, ecology and appreciating design.
    Her open studio brings together boutique and studio, where in the same environment clothes for sale and individual design for come byers are made.

    From Reet Aus' boutique you can find different natural and envoirnmental products from Dr Hauschka's natural cosmetics to handmade lacy cardigan.

  2. Rotermanni Kaubamaja - Rotermanni 5 (map)

It's better than a cardboard box

Today I had an argument with me mother and in the end she realized I was right. To make it up to me, she called her best friend (I've been asking her to to that for a long time):
"Hi, I was wondering...maybe you have some old clothes packed somewhere. The older the better. And as weird as possible..."
Damn right,
the mom knows what the kid wants :D

Actually I wanted to show you my new necklace :D
(Sorry for the extremely bad pictures, I STILL haven't got a new camera...)



Parem kui papist karp

Täna vaidlesime emaga ja kui ta lõpuks aru sai, et minul oli õigus püüdis ta seda mulle heastada. Selleks helistas ta oma sõbrannale (olen tal seda juba ammu palunud teha):
"Tsau, kuule ma mõtlesin, et ega sule pole mingeid vanu riideid kuhugile pakitud või midagi. Mida vanem seda parem. Ja nii imelikud kui võimalik..."
Tõiesti õige, ema teab, mida laps tahab :D

Aga tegelikult ma tahtsin teile oma uut kaelakeed näidata :D (vabandan jälle super kvaliteedi eest, aga mul ikka pole uut kaamerat...)

Sladkaja konfeta

Today I had the most spontaneous buy I ever had. I took a bus, went to Tallinn and bought Miau's album "Assortii" from year 2004. All songs are in Russian and the three girls in this band look absolutely hideous, they're like Estonian bad version of PCD. But the songs are so catchy and...good. :D

http://www.sloleht.ee/multimedia/images/000100/37b2e429-c2a3-477c-84fb-6e487d064c5a.jpg

And I also bought a scarf in the most beautiful colours in the world and few things I needed for my next D.I.Y project.



Sladkaja konfeta

Täna tegin oma elu spontaanseima ostu. Läksin bussi peale, sõitsin Tallinnasse ja ostsin Miau albumi "Assortii" aastast 2004.

Ja lisaks sellele ostsin ka maailma ilusaimates värvides salli ja mõned asjad mida on vaja mu uueks D.I.Y projektiks.

Cheap thrill seekers

I know it took me a LONG while, but I've finally Done It Myself. I first tried to stonewash my jeans, it did not work out. Then I tried to tie-dye my leggings, that didn't come out as good as I hoped also.
But this it what I made this week.
I turned these white leggings and this white knitted 'I don't know what' into purpleish things. I am quite happy with the result, because I had no idea how it was going to come out because I used some really old Textile Colours I had never used before (Lefranc & Bourgerois' French Blue mixed with Oriental Red)




Odava elamuse otsijad

Ma tean, et mul läks sellega VÄGA kaua aega, aga olen lõpuks saanud vailmis oma DIY asjad. Kõige pealt üritasin teha 'kivipesu jean'se' :D, see ei tulnud välja. Siis püüdsin sukapükse batika tehnikas värvida ning see ei õnnestunud samuti.
Aga siin on see, mis tegin sellel nädalal.
Värvisin valged sukad ja selle kootud valge kampsuni
lillakaks. Ja olen tulemusega päris rahul, sest mul polnud õrna aimugi, mis välja võib tulla, sest kasutasin mingeid vanu tekstiili värve, mimida mida ma polnud varem kasutanud (Lefranc & Bourgerois' French Blue segatud Oriental Red'iga)

Hej

I have no new outfits to post. It has 3 reasons - lack of time and funding, and STILL no camera. I honestly am looking for new one.
Yesterday was my first Swedish lesson, I absolutely loved it.
Ooh, and I forgot to tell you one exciting news- I saw Carmen Kass just the other day, :D and speaking of common ancestry, I just love the dress Kerli Kõiv was wearing at the Universal Music Group party in Tallinn.
[Go and listen to my blog's new theme song now!]


http://f.elu24.ee/f/2008/09/04/71400t11h2275.jpg

Hej

Mul ei ole ühtegi uut outfit'i lisada. Sellel on 3 põhjust - raha- ning aja puudus ja IKKA VEEL pole mu kaamerat. Ma ausalt ka otsin ikka veel.
Eile oli mu esimene rootsi keele tund, see oli VÄGA tore.
Ooh, ja mul oli veel üks hea uudis- ma nägin üks päev Carmen Kassi, :D ja ühisest päritolust rääkides, ma täiesti armastan seda kleiti, mida Kerli Kõiv Universal Music Group'i peol Tallinnas kandis.
[Mine ja kuula nüüd mu blogi uut tunnuslaulu!]

What are economics, stock exchange and social politics?

Yesterday was the first day of school. After listening to many speeches that never change in years we went vintage shopping with Britt.
We found lots of pretty clothes and I decided to buy a skirt, a knitted sweater, purple top and 2 clutches. Britt found 3 REALLY pretty cardigans and gorgeous vintage bathing costume but decided not to buy them...instead she bought 1 ½ bikinis.

After shopping we ate at out favorite cafe Kehrwieder at the Town Hall Square and watched student passing by with their college caps and flowers.


Britt posing with the new Chinatown decorations (that's not what she was wearing... :D)

Our weirdest find- "So they asked me to use that swatch on the design. So I did it."


See the whole set on the upcoming outfit post

Mis on majandus, börs ja poliitika?

Eile oli esimene koolipäev. Pärast mitte kunagi muutuvate kõnede kuulamist läksime Britiga vintage shoppingule.
Leidsime palju ilusaid asju ja otsustasin osta seeliku, heegeldatud kampsuni, lilla topi ja 2 clutch'i. Britt leidis 3 HÄSTI ilusat kampsunit ja imekena vintage trikoo, aga ta ei ostnud neid, vaid nende asemel soetas ta endale 1 ½ bikiini.
Pärast ostlemist sõime me Kehrwiederis ja vaatasime mööduvaid teklites õpilasi.
