I had a wonderful privilege today to be in front of the camera and wear beautiful clothes by Estonian designers. Unfortunately I can't say more about it at this moment, but maybe soon...
These pictures were taken on my way home and once again, almost everything I wear is from thrift stores. I got this blouse for 3€ just this week. It looks a bit tacky and has that resplendent Slavic festive vibe (or 80s glam thing) going on... But I kind of like items that are on the borderline of good and bad taste. No jewellery - that's a must.

I'm back from Helsinki. The concert night went great, you never see so many people at dark electro/industrial/synthpop parties in Estonia. People also put more effort in dressing up. I'm not a fan of the cyber goth look, but the atmosphere was great and it was definitely fun to be there and dance until the lights were put on. By the way, the event took place on a boat, which had three dance rooms on different floors and we found a happy sauna party at the backstage... the naked guys from a previous party took their time before leaving.
We only had a few hours to spend in Helsinki and we went to Black & White and Music Hunter. All DVD boxes were 50% off in Music Hunter, so we got a Tarantino box. Maybe I'll finally get to watch Jackie Brown, the only Tarantino movie I haven't seen.
I got Edgar Allan Poe's The Fall of House Usher and other writings from the Academic Bookstore. It's great to finally have it in the original language. I also had a severe wtf-moment, when I checked if they had something from Michel Houellebecq, who's one of my favourite writers. They had a paperback of his last novel The Map and the Territory and on the back cover it was written Michel Houellebecq (1956-2010)... He was born on 1956, but he is still here... Quite a phenomenon. It might have something to do with the fact that the novel has a character, a writer also called Michel Houellebecq and he dies in the book. The novel was published in 2010. I don't know if someone mixed up literature and life, but it certainly made me want to read the book even more. I have it in Estonian since last May, so as soon as I've finished his Platform, I will definitely read it.

So, here is the very gray early spring, with gray bare trees and I'm wearing gray. And silver. I don't know if the V-shaped necklace was an unconscious Freudian choice, because I just saw both volumes of Lars von Trier's Nymphomaniac and I absolutely loved the film. I always enjoy his dark themes and how he integrates music theory, literature, religion and even fishing to his films... I am not utterly fond of all the hints and references he makes, but in general I can say that he is one of those filmmakers whose work talks to me and he definitely is one of the most talented directors of our time, like him or not.

So, this is about the super cheap dress I got from boohoo.com a while ago. I definitely plan to buy more red dresses, I'm crazy about how brutal and conspicuous they are. No jewellery is needed. I just added a self-made collar-thingy.
The silver necklace is from H&M.

So I went to Stockholm this weekend. It was a ship cruise and 7 hours in Stockholm was not enough as always. Still I snapped some pictures of the beautiful snowy day. Some parts of the old town were so quiet, no people, no wind, just snow floating in the air.
Fishing in the city centre... Hell yeah.
