A Winter Wedding

My other half and I attended a most lovely winter wedding on Saturday. The party was great and it was so nice to see people I hadn't seen in a long time! I hope to visit Helsinki more often in the future to catch up with them!


I got a dress from GinaTricot for the event and shortened it. The extra fabric went to making hats for everyone at the bachelorette party and an ascot for my other half! The clutch is also new, I got it so I could have a smaller bag that I could keep in the large handbag I usually use. This way I could leave the huge bag at the cloakroom and only carry the small one with me. It's second hand and I really like it!


My hair is also a bit darker now. I was feeling upset over the roots the week before the wedding and my hairdresser didn't have any free appointments, but since I live with the most wonderful man, my other half volunteered to do the roots. He did a great job and it was so considerate! The colour is Alpine Green by Directions, I'd say it the same shade as Turquoise but darker. I think it suits me better than the turquoise, it was a bit too bright.


This one shows off the little hat!

Thanks to Nina for snapping a few pictures of us! There's so few pics where me and
the other half are together because usually one of us is behind the camera.

His ascot tie matches my dress perfectly and it looks cool! I even ironed the thing ;P
It was a great trip, with lots of friends and good food. I wish Touko and Johanna all the best in their married life and I'm very much looking forward to pictures from the honeymoon! Thanks for having us :)

    1. Thanks! I thought I'd feel weird in light colours, but the dress was very comfy and easy to wear after all! And my new purse matched it so nicely :)

    1. Kiitos! Minijakkuhässäkkä on hankittu Goottikirppikseltä Facebookista, se taisi olla myyjän itse tekemä. Sais kyllä aloittaa massatuotannon, toi on niin nätti vaate!

  12. Oh my God you two look amazing. Seriously. And there's always something about alternative people trying to dress formal! They always have that touch, and I love it. Even if you hadn't blu hair and all the piercings, one could always tell your style. That's what always happen to me: no matter how I try to fit in in some occasions, people always "smell" there's something "wrong" XD Well, I love your blog. I am officially a follower from now.
