NEWS

Hello readers. I have an announcement to make. I am starting anew, but wanted to keep the same name and domain that I have now, so I changed these back to the ones they were. The thing is, that I don't feel comfortable in this mainstream type of "fashion blogging" and want to do it differently. See, I think in fashion/style blogs the clothes and style are the ones that should matter, not artsy photos nor showing yourself off in them. Of course I respect bloggers that take amazing photos for their posts and put in a lot of effort to show off their outfits. I just happen to be between two jobs, studying and trying to apply to schools this year, not to mention the normal life, so I simply don't have the time for all that posing in beautiful locations. And come on, let's be honest, Finland ia not the best place to photograph your outfits outdoors - it's raining, snowing, dark or freezing 300 days of the year. I think I may have found the perfect solution for me, that allows me to make better quality posts every time, without having to think about who am I going to get to shoot the pictures - I can do it all by myself! You will find me in my not-so-new address www.essiestyle.blogspot.com and the blog's name will be Essiestyle. Excited about the new idea, see you there soon :)

HAIR POST


I love Olivia Palermo's long bob. I've had this hairstyle a few times, both cut in January 2012 and 2013  but this time I want to break that habit! But later on I think I will cut my hair again. Short hair is good in the winter as you're always wearing scarves and the always mess my hair up so that it's tangled for weeks. Of course I should take better care of my hair and untangle it, but I just don't. I think I am going for this look again, just not sure when. And maybe I'll do it with the ginger/copper red colour.

WANT

Another Nike babies I'd like to purchase on...This time I think I'm gonna wait for a while and hope they'll be available somewhere later. This shoe is Nike Air Max Thea, and I love the basic running shoe look, and the black and white colour. I think they'd be a cool combo with this backpack:

A bit of an unpredictable combo, but oh so cool! What do you think? I know I am a bit late with the sneakers and running shoes but I used to hate them and these days I'm going through a bit of a sneaker chick phase so they fit my style these days. I did order this backpack, thought that it'd be PERFECT with all of my boho-chic summer looks. The Nikes, 132€ , and backpack, 55€, Ellos.

PARTY SHOES ON

Heels, 55€, Ellos.
                                                                Heels, 55€, Ellos.


Ordered these beauties from Ellos...I know I really couldn't afford all this shoes shopping, but I am anyway paying their bill every month so a few euros more can't kill me. And, as they say, life's short, buy the shoes!
I am not much of a party goer, but I am trying to wear more heels this summer - even though downtown Helsinki is not the best place to wear them! I used to wear super high heels in high school, and that was doable because all I had to do was to sit around all day, so my legs didn't die during the day. Now that I am working at a clothing shop and have to stand and run around all day, wearing heels is not the comfiest option. The only heels I've managed to wear have been Jeffrey Campbell's Lita's - even after 8 hours of walking your feet are not sore, just a bit tired at worst. Now that I am having my internship at R/H I can probably wear more heels as I also do stuff that don't require as much standing and walking around, more like big
brains and fast thinking! At least on office days!

Can't wait to try these on and not to mention, can't wait to WEAR THEM! Oh, Spring, hurry up!
