Current obsessions

I went to the post office yesterday to pick up two pairs of really nice shoes for summer. I did not even remember buying the second pair because it took two weeks for them to arrive from the UK. As soon as I opened the package at the post office I remembered Oh right I did buy these!

First pair is these cool spiky booties. The heel isn't too high for me so they are really nice to walk in. The spikes aren't too heavy like they are in Jeffrey Campbell's.
I had been looking at these in Ebay for so long but did not have the courage to buy them because so many Ebay shoes are actually a lot smaller than the size tag tell you. Well these happened to be right size for me. Yay! Ebay sellers have sold these for very different prices from 45 £ - 9,99 £.
I paid 12 € plus 5 € for shipping. So not bad at all. These are also better quality than I had expected.

 The second pair is Melissa flats. They are something I would not usually buy but I thought that I won't be wearing heels all summer so this is what I found by accident. They are made out of rubber. Really interesting. And of course they have spikes on them. Why else would I buy them? You need to have spikes... I think I'm a bit obsessed about spikes. :)

Crossed bones and planing future

I know I haven't posted anything recently. I've been designing new products and doing some soul searching. After my trip to Tokyo I've been slightly depressed to be back in Finland. Slowly but surely I'm getting back on my feet.

I made these shorts today. I've been planing making these for so long and finally got my boyfriend to use the copier at his workplace to print the picture on a plastic sheet so I was able to finish the screen which I use to make the cross bone print to the fabric.
It was so hard to focus the camera all by myself.
Would you want these cool shorts for summer? I think I should make more of these. They are about 95 % cotton and 5 % elastane. So very soft, breathable and stretchy. 

Also News!
I'll be selling my products at Lumous Gothic Festival Dark Marker in july. So be the or be square!
Lots of new products: jewelry, beanies, tote bags, tops and many cool unique and one of a kind items. Some of my personal second hand items are also for sale. You can only pay with cash so come prepared.

Also something new for sale at Ateljeekatu. 

This beautiful military-styled dress fits size S/M. Made from stretchy pengaline with plastic zipper in the front. Open back. This piece is being sold at Ateljeekatu. Price: 180 €
