1.Mis su lemmik film on? 2 days in Paris - Saab naerda, mõelda, Pariisi imetleda. The Italian Job (2003) Parim tagaajamisfilm koos ilusate autodega (loomulikult Mini Cooperitega)
2.Milline muusika sulle meeldib? nimeta mõned bändid/artistid. Gossip, Lykke Li, The Kills, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Ladyhawke, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Kings of Leon,  
3.Kust saad inpiratsiooni? Mulle meeldib nt ehete, piltide tegemise, riiete valimise vms  ajal muusikat kuulata. Tavaliselt loob see õige meeleolu ja sel viisil ka inspireerib mind.
4.Kui sa saaksid kogu oma ülejäänud elu kanda ainult ühte värvi, milline see oleks? Ma loodan, et sellist asja kunagi ei juhtu, et ma peaksin ainult ühe värvi valima..
5.Kaua sul võtab ühe enda lukukäevõru vms tegemine aega? Vähemalt 10 tundi (ega ma neid järjest ühe korraga ei teegi valmis). Võibolla olen ma lihtsalt aeglane, aga kõige rohkem võtab aega lõppviimistlus ja tahaküljele voodri õmblemine. 
6.Kas Tartu kui elukeskkond on Sinu stiili kujunemist mõjutanud? Tartu on tore linn, aga mulle tundub, et see mu riietumist küll ei mõjuta. Kui ma elaksin Tallinnas, kas ma siis riietuksin teistmoodi? Ise tahaks uskuda et mitte. Aga enne ei saa teada, kui järele ei proovi (Tallinnas elamist).
7.Kuna ja kus sa sündisid?16.august, Tartu
8.Kust sa õppisid inglise keelt rääkima? Koolis loomulikult ja õpin vähemalt 4 aastat veel. Ma loomulikult soovin, et ma oskaksin paremini, aga usun et blogimine ja üldse internetis suhtlemine inglise keeles aitab kaasa. Ilmselt suur osa sõnavarast tulebki filmidest ja internetist.
9.Kas sul on poiss-sõber? ei
10.Kas koolis on ka neid õelaid Bitche kes nn imelikult vaatavad sind ja sinu stiili? Eks neid ikka ole, igalpool. Aga kedagi kindlat ma küll välja tuua ei oska (ja kui oskaksingi, siis ma ilmselt ei teeks seda :D)
12.Mis hinded sul on? neljad-viied
13.Mis on su tulevikuplaanid ?  Mulle ei meeldi oma tulevikku kaugele ette planeerida, aga esialgu proovin ikka selle blogiga jätkata.
14.Kuhu kooli soovid edasi õppima minna ?  Eestis on ka kindlasti häid ülikoole aga muidugi ma võin unistada elamast hubases katusekorteris Pariis ja seal koolis käimast.
16.Kas saad ka kuus taskuraha, palju? Ma ei saa igakuulist taskuraha, saan tavaliselt siis, kui millegi kindla asja jaoks vaja on. Ja palju asju ostan ka enda teenitud raha eest.
17.Kas sa shoppad ka kaubamajades jne? Ja ikka, aga nendest ma leian lihtsalt harvemini sobivaid riideid.
18.Kus asub tartus taaskasutuspoed kus müüakse ka mööblit jne, sisustusesemeid? Näiteks Tartu Taaskasutuskeskuses ja selle õuel on päris mitu vana mööbliga kauplevat poodi. Ise olen sealt ostnud kingariiuli ja ühe vanaaegsete raamidega peegli. http://www.taaskasutuskeskus.ee/
20.Tuleviku plaanid , ma mida veel tahaksid nn DIY projektiks teha , ideid? Kuna kevadel oli mul mingi sulgede teema, ostsin neid igalpoolt võimalikult palju kokku. Nüüd nad seisavad seal sahtlis ja oleks vist nendega midagi ette võtta.
21.Näita meile oma tuba ja riidekappi? Riidekappi juba nägite (siin), varsti näete ka tuba:)
22.Kas sa oled modell? Ei, vähemalt veel mitte, peaksin paar sentimeetrit veel kasvama
24.kuidas tuli mõte avada moeblogi ja hakata nii-öelda "stiilimutiks" Haha, ega see vast ei ole niisama, et võtan kätte ja hakkan. Aga blogi algseks eesmärgiks oli mul vast omatehtud asjade (DIY projektide) kõigiga jagamine.
25.Mis materjali sa kasutasid aluseks käevõrude ja kõrvarõngaste tegemisel? (seda musta mõtlen). See on selline vildi moodi riie, nagu mantliriie või midagi sellist.
26.Palju sa selle etsy poega teeninud oled? (ei pea vastama, kui see on isiklik info)? Täpset summat ei oska isegi öelda, aga uue kaamerale objektiivi ostuks veel raha koos ei ole :D
27.Kas sa tegeled veel sellega ajakirjavahetusega? Kui jah siis mis ajakirju sa saadad ja saad ise vastu? Jah, ühe prantsuse tüdrukuga. Tema on saatnud mulle paar Pariisi Vogue. Ise soovis ta vastu Eesti moeajakirju, neid just palju pole:D
28.Kust tuleb sinu huvi moe vastu? Ma ei mäleta kahjuks, kust see alguse sai. Aga kindel on see, et see suureneb iga päevaga.
28.Kas sul on stiilikoon? keegi keda ma pidevalt jälgiks ja kelle stiili ma jäljendada püüaksin, ei. Aga mulle meeldib näiteks Kate Lanphear.
29. Kas sul on õdesid-vendi? Jah, 3 õde - Meeri, Tuuli, Liisi
30. Kas neil on ka blogid? Jah Tuulil on blogi Fallie's scrapbook

DIY Rodarte inspired sweater

Okay, here is it. At the moment only one bad photo, I think it looks actually better :D. Of course it came out 2x bigger than it should be, so I'm not going to make tutorial, just one tip: Use thin mohair yarn but large knitting needles!

Pure perfection

It's time for the questionS&answers post! So start asking, ...what do you want to know about me. Ask whatever you want to, though not anything extremely personal. I'd prefer fashion/style/music/films etc. related questions. And one day I'll make a post with the answers.

DIY TUTORIAL: Shoulder pads

Cause some of you were interested in the shoulder pads I made and had lot of questions I decided to make a little tutorial, actually just some tips.

At first you need (to make exactly the same shoulder pads I made but there's thousands of ways to create embellished shoulders, be creative!):
*2 foam shoulder pads, should be available at every fabric shop, in different sizes and shapes.
*Of course a thread and a needle + some pins.
*50 large bronze/golden studs, available at http://studsandspikes.com
*2 7/8" Coque Feather Fringe, I ordered from www.mjtrim.com


Handsew the feather fringe on the shoulder pads, then add the studs to hide the stiches. When it's done, sew the shoulder pads with couple of stiches on your favourite blazer or t-shirt.

DIY: Shoulder pads with studs and feathers


Again I have to start my post with telling - I'm sick, again. I had a bunch of big bronze studs and the beautiful coque feather fringe, so I decided to make shoulder pads. I wasn't able to make some photos while wearing those because I look terrible (fever makes people look bad :D). I hope that I'll get some better photos soon, oh and my Rodarte insipired sweater is also ready. I should do a big photoshoot one day to show you all my new creations and recent buys.

Avec moi?

I'm used to that fashion bloggers in my age are mostly girls. But owner of amazing blog called Avec Moi? is Ben, 14 years old boy from Denmark - http://fashionwunderkid.blogspot.com
His outfits may look bit usual at first sight but I can't picture none of the boys in my class wearing anything else than sportswear or jeans+hoodie combo. So I think he's really cool. Plus he makes nice shoe sketches and fashion illustrations.
He made an interview with me, you can read it - here!. I really liked the questions he made so I asked him to answer to those same questions, so here is interview with him:


So Benjamin, where do you live? How old are you?
I live in Vejle, Denmark. And I'm 14 years old. (we fourteen year old kids are rockin'?)

Are they any good vintage shops or stores in your city? (If yes , then write them, not all of them, but 2 or 3)
There's a lot of thrift stores. Maybe there is some vintage stores. I don't know yet. But my absolute favorite store is H&M. I love H&M, they always have something chic, but to a love price.

You have a very good sense of style, in an very young age, what does your family/friends say about it?

My mom and dad, was very skeptical over this new style, and my interest in fashion. But later they accepted it and now they are the ones who support me most. My mom and dad doesn't know that I have a blog, neither does my friends in school. Actually no one of those people who live in my hometown that I have a blog, of the people where i live! 
I get a lot of weird up-and-down looks, but i just ignore that. I really don't care if someone says something negative to me.

I really like your shoe sketches. Are you interested in designing and making some real shoes someday?

Well, I'm more into clothes design. But of course, if I one day get a brand, then I would love to make shoes!

Career dreams?
Fashion designer. Or working at a fashion magazine. I don't know. There is so many things in fashion you can do.

Do you feel your country or city is fashionable?

My country? Yes! My city? uhh, a bit. Everyday i see some people that has the most perfect outfit on, and i wanna like, go over and take a picture of them. But there's not as many as there is in Aarhus or Copenhagen.

Are you going to move away from Denmark someday?

I think so. Yeah. I can picture myself, living in London or Paris. Where ever my career brings me, i live there. I dream of working in Paris, and having my own flat and just hang out in the city.

When did you start blogging? What inspires you? Do you take all your picture by yourself?
I started blogging in February, with the blog Tres Chic. But i deleted it, and took a break. Then later i created Avec Moi, so since April. What inspires me? hmm. My vision of fashion, and other people. Everything. And yes, i take every picture of me by myself.

What describes your style? Does music influences your style?
There no recipe for my style. But i get inspired a lot by rock n roll music. Especially The Kills. They are my favorites. It doesn't matter what kind of music I'm listening to. I dress, as i want to.

The Kills, Gossip, Ladyhawke, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Ratatat. I hear them all the time. But everyday i find a new artist.

Name your favorite blogs?

I really like Adeline Rapon's blog. She is very beautiful and have a good style. 
www.adelinerapon.blogspot.com

Sacha Hilton take the most inspiring photos.
www.sachahilton.blogspot.com

The shoes!
http://seaofshoes.typepad.com/sea_of_shoes/

and a danish blog. She's my favorite of all danish bloggers!
www.trineswardrobe.dk

If you find a blog, what is the first thing you look at?

The person who is having the blog. And her/his style.

Do you believe in trends?

No, definitely not. I create my own trends. But I can get inspired of trends.

Any music, book, movie recommendations?

Music: 
Beth Ditto from Gossip
The Kills
Books i read a lot of. But i read a lot of Dan Brown books.

"The Dreamers" and "2 days in Paris" is the 2 most best movies in the world. I love movies that has something to do with Paris, love, never-ending cigarettes and partying. But watch "2 days in Paris" it's a good movie.

ASYMMETRY GEOMETRY SYMMETRY

Last night inspiration finally came - from decor magazines. I cut out some triangles and turned into dresses.  


Eile õhtul tuli viimaks inspiratsioon - sisustusajakirjadest. Lõikasin välja mõned kolmnurgad ja panin neist kokku kleidid.

Rawr

Finally finished reading The Teen Vogue Handbook. Ehh.. I'm not right person to say it because I don't know either but I feel that they glamorized this industry too much. But it was still very interesting to read.

And I just found coolest swimwear ever! 
We are handsome is Australian brand which makes fantastic handmade swimsuits. Those prints are definitely eye-catching. For more check out their site - here!


/Lõpuks lõpetasin ka The Teen Vogue Handbook'i lugemise. Ma ei ole küll ilmselt õige inimene seda ütlema, sest ega ma ju ise ka ei tea kuidas kõik tegelikult on, aga mulle tundus et nad ilustasid moetööstust liialt. Aga siiski oli see väga huvitav raamat.

Ja ma leidsin just maailma kõige lahedamad ujumisriided.
Nende vingete käsitsi valmistatud ujumistrikoode taga on Austraalia bränd We Are Handsome. Et rohkem pilte näha vaata ka nende kodulehte - siin!

Furry spiderwebs

I'm ill, again! Now I've stayed at home from school for couple of days and I've knitted and watched tv all day long. I decided to show you my Rodarte inspired knitted sweater - work in process. I've already finished the backside, it took about one week. So I think maybe two weeks more and my sweater is ready.
/Ma olen haige, jälle! Ma olen sellepärast paar päeva kodus istunud ja põhiliselt kudunud ja telekat vaadanud :D. Otsustasin teile näidata kuidas näeb mu Rodarte-inspired kampsun hetkel välja näeb. Ma just lõpetasin selja osa ja sellega läks umbes nädalake, nii et loodan et kahe nädala pärast on mu kampsun juba valmis./


Plus I added new scrolled zipper cuff to my etsy - shop here!. I know I supposed to think about new jewelry (I mean new ideas and materials) already but I just can't say no to people who still want zipper cuff so badly.
/Lisasin oma etsy poodi ka ühe uue luku käevõru - siin!. Ma tean et ma peaksin juba midagi uut välja mõtlema, ega ma ei saa ju igavesti jääda neid sarnaseid luku käevõrusid tegema. Aga ma lihtsalt ei suuda inimestele ei öelda, kes väga veel seda käevõru tahaksid./

Check out this amazing blog feature on Refinery29.com - here! Thank you so much.

Day full of beautiful photos+jewelry+fashion illustrations

Yesterday we had very long day, we visited different shops and exhibitions. First we spent hours in big bookstore and leafed through amazing books about fashion, art and photography. My favourite was "20th Century Fashion: 100 Years of Apparel Ads", you can read it online and buy - here!. Then we went to Morš (http://www.mors.ee/), the only vintage store in Estonia. I got some chains for jewelry making from there. After that we visited IIDA gallery (http://www.iidadesign.eu/), there we saw exhibition called MALE, where were jewelry for men or jewelry inspired of men.

Then exhibition of fashion photography. There were photos by Filippo Caroti (http://www.woland.co.uk/), models in the photos are wearing dresses by Oksana Tandit (http://www.oksanatandit.ee/)and Ruth Tulving (http://ruth-tulving.com/)paintings of butterflies are for background.


My favourite was exhibition of Estonian fashion illustrations.

Eile veetsime pika päeva linnas, külastasime erinevaid näitusi ja poode. Kõige pealt veetsime me tune Apollo raamatupoes and lehitsesime erinevaid moe, kunsti ja fotograafia raamatuid. Minu lemmik oli "20th Century Fashion: 100 Years of Apparel Ads", seda saab lugeda ja osta - siin!. Kusjuures internetist tellides on hinnad ligi poole odavamad. Peale seda läksime Morši (http://www.mors.ee/), kust sain kette ehete tegemiseks. Järgmiseks külastasime IIDA galeriid (http://www.iidadesign.eu/), kus vaatasime näitust "MALE meeste ehted". Siis läksime M galeriisse kus sai näha moefoto näitust. Fotod olid tehtud Filippo Caroti (http://www.woland.co.uk/) poolt, modellid fotodel kandsid Oksana Tanditi (http://www.oksanatandit.ee/) disainitud kleite ja taustaks olid Ruth Tulvingu (http://ruth-tulving.com/) maalid. Näitust saab vaadata M galeriis, Kinga 3, kuni 19.novembrini. Kõige huvitavam oli vast näitus "Uus Eesti Moejoonistus", Disainigaleriis, Pärnu mnt. 8, avatud kuni 14.november. Peale seal käimist hakkasid kohe näpud sügelema ja tahaks nüüd isegi midagi joonistada.

Marit Ilison

It's Tallinn Fashion Week at the moment and today I went to Marit Ilison pret-a-porter show. I was very suprised when I found out that my seat is in the front row. Generally was show very mystic and enchanting. It was very refreshing to see something wearable but it still didn't look like a high street fashion (which is good of course). Clothes were from the top to bottom black but with very many different textures and sheer fabric, which I absolutely love. Models had some strange face paintings with gothic vibe. Zippers and feathers made it perfect.








More photos later

Eile käisime Tuuliga Tallina Moenädala raames toimunud Marit Ilisoni kollektsiooni esitlusel. Ma olin väga üllatunud kui avastasin et meie kohad on esimeses reas. Show oli üldiselt väga müstiline ja lummav. Oli värskendav näha midagi, mis oli väga kantav, aga ei näinud siiski välja nagu massimood (see on muidugi hea). Riided olid üleni mustad, lisandiks mõned läbikumava kanga laigud. Suled ja lukud olid täpiks i-l

R-O-D-A-R-T-E

I love Rodarte. Their knittings look amazing, like spiderwebs in magnificent colours. Mhh.. and I have to admit I love knitting, it's great activity while watching TV, okay I feel myself like granny now, only lock curlers are missing. So today I bought eight different tones of mohair yarn to make my own Rodarte inspired sweater,cardigan or dress. I haven't decided yet...

inspiration board
photos: rodartefashion/colette/ShinyStyle/tfs

Ma armastan Rodartet, nende kudumid on imelised, nagu ämblikuvõrgud maailma kõige ilusamates toonides. Mhh pean tunnistama.., et armastan ka kudumist. Seda on mõnus teha näiteks samal ajal telekat vaadates, okei.. ma tunnen end nüüd väga vana mammina, ainult lokirullid veel puudu. Igaljuhul täna ostsin ma kaheksa erinevat tooni mohäärlõnga, et kududa endale Rodartest inspireeritud kampsun/kardigan/kleit. Ma pole veel otsustanud milline neist siis.

Crying wolves

Made those photos last night when everything was still OK, starring with my new wolf t-shirt. In one way it's quite tacky but in the other it's my alternative for Christopher Kane gorilla tees. And I'm lovin' it. And I love my school holiday too, until tonight. Now I'm going to talk you about the bad luck. Everything went so great - on Monday I received interview request from Vogue.com, yesterday press request from Romanian fashion magazine THE ONE, today I won two VIP invitations for RIGA FASHION WEEK. It's on the Thursday and Friday. I thought it's a dream, but it isn't - my first fashion week (hopefully not the last one). Now comes the bad part - I've a really high fever and head cold. So I had to cancel it. Why do things like that happen to me? Sorry about the negative post but actually everything besides that is great. ok now I need some sleep.
