Girl Friday: Oh, Pijama Party!?

Mu ema tuli ühel õhtupoolikul ootamatult külla. Meil oli Meisiga fotoseeria plaanitud, olin parasjagu kodus soengule viimast lihvi andmas ja selgitasin emakesele, et kui ta soovib, võib tulla pildistamisele kaasa. Kui hakkasime kodust väljuma, küsis ema üllatunult minu musta-valge kirjuid pükse vaadates: "Kas sa tuledki pidžaamas? Või on see nüüd moes?" 

Ma ei pane emale selliseid märkuseid absoluutselt pahaks, sest mustritega püksid, mida on  terve maailm täis, ajasid ka mind esialgu segadusse. Ei, ma ei ajanud neid pidžaamaga segi, kuid nuputasin tükk aega, millega miksida neid nii, et jääksin mustriga pükse kandes siiski iseendaks. Seega valisin juurde valge jaki ja see komplekt töötab minu silmis täiuslikult. Seekordse Girl Friday postituse staarid on aga minu valged platvormkingad, mis ma leidsin juulikuus oma suvemajast. Nad olid viisakalt ja viksilt pakitud karbi sisse ja jäänud kapi otsa. Arvan, et ostsin nad vähemalt 10 aastat tagasi ja nii ootasid nad oma aega... Hea, et see lõpuks kätte jõudis.


One evening I got an unexpected visit from my mom. We had a photoshoot planned with meisi and I was just adding finishing touches to my hair while explaining to my mom that when she wants, she can come to the photoshoot with me. When we were heading out my mother asked with a surprising tone: “Do you plan on coming with your pyjama pants on?” 

 I am not getting mad at these remarks by by mother, because these colourful pants that are basically everywhere confused me at first. No, I wan’t thinking that these come from nightwear, but I was always wondering which clothes to combine with these in a way I could stay myself. So, I opted to wear a white jacket with it and in my opinion it works perfectly. This week Girl Friday’s stars are white platform shoes I found from my summer home back in July. They were neatly packed in a box and left on top of the cupboard. I think I bought them at least 10 years ago and so they were waiting their time…

Sea Of Shoes: Meet Melissa

Seekordse "Sea Of Shoes" postituse pühendan kingadele, mille kohta on öeldud: plastik muutub kullaks! Firma Melissa kingad need, mille peal on minu ihar pilk pidama jäänud. Need spetsiaalse tehnoloogiaga loodud plastikust kingad on mugavad ja erakordselt originaalsed. 

Melissaga on teinud koostööd andekad moeloojad ja stilistid. Nii on Melissale disaininud kingi Vivienne Westwood, Jean Paul Gaultier, Alexandre Herchcovitch, Edson Matsuo, Zaha Hadid, Karld Lagerfeld ja paljud teised. Mulle meeldib väga Karl Lagerfeldi looming, sest platvormkingad on alati minu esimene valik. Tänasest kollaažist meeldivad mulle Karl Lagerfeldi Ultragirl Heel (nr.2) ja Blue Rainbow Ginga Heeled Shoes (nr.7). Suveks võiks aga valida Melissa Style Blue (nr.5), mida leiab nende kodulehelt veel neljas erinevas toonis. Imetlust väärivad ka Vivienne Westwoodi loodud kollektsioon - nende stiil jääb minu jaoks rohkem "Alice Imedemaa" kategooriasse (kirjutasin muinasjutulistest kingadest SIIN). Melissal on ka imetlusväärne kolleksioon, mis loodud lastele. Viimased kaks paari sellest kollaažist on disainitud just väikestele preilidele. Kas mõnel minu lugejal on juba kodus paar Melissasid? Mina alles mõtlen, kas vajan ikka kõiki maailma asju. Elame. Näeme.

This “Sea Of Shoes” post will be dedicated to the shoes, that have been described as a gold made of plastic! A company Melissa makes shoes that my needy eye has stopped on. These shoes made with special technology straight from plastic are comfortable and very original.

Many talented fashion designers and stilists have been working with Melissa. So, shoes for Melissa have been designed by Vivienne Westwood, Jean Paul Gaultier, Alexandre Herchovitch, Karl Lagerfeld and many more. My personal preference is the creation of Karl Lagerfeld, because platform shoes are always my number one choice - I like Karl Lagerfeld Ultragirl Heel (no 2) and Blue Rainbow Ginga Heelded Shoes (no 7) from this collage. For summer Melissa Style Blue (no 5), that can be found from their website in four other shades, would be perfect. Another admirable collection is by Vivienne Westwood - their style represents more Alice In Wonderland to me. Melissa has also a wonderful collection for children. Last two pairs in the collage has been designed for the little ladies. Has anyone  a pair of Melissas at home? Right now I am thinking if I really need all the things in the world. We’ll live and see!

Girl Friday: My Bohemian Fantasy



Do you remember the post where I wrote that the new black for me is dark blue? Oh well… I always break my promises I have made to myself! It has been said that today we aren’t the ones we were yesterday and that applies perfectly in this situation.  

Story is that yesterday I visited a second-hand shop and found the most special black vintage dress that had golden embroidered sleeves. It has been made in Finland and as the little inside states:”Atelier Hele Patjas. Järvenpää. Finland.” When I picked this dress up I felt an unique bohemian savor coming from it. I don’t know why, but this dress reminded me a writer and artist Tove Janssson. I have always admired her wide oeuvre and when I visited her exhibition in Helsinki Atenum art gallery I was mesmerised the shots of her high dealings in her home. These pictures from my new dress that costed me 3.50 €, are part of the Stellarium’s country romance scenes. This time also I added two coloured Hunter rain boots to the dress. As I came from the party right before making these pictures, I wore a fluffy skirt underneath the dress. The idea was to make the whole composition more girly and cheerful.

Outfit details:

Dress: Atelier Hele Patjas
Wellies: Hunter 
Bag: Miss Lindy 
Make Up: Max Factor Skind Luminizer Foundation &
Max Factor Enchanting Coral No 25
Hair: Fashion Hair



Ma murran endale nii tihti sõna ... Selle kohta öeldakse vist, et me pole täna need, kes olime eile. Kas sa mäletad seda postitust, kus hiljuti kirjutasin, et minu jaoks on uus must tumesinine? Käisin äsja ühes second-hand poes ja leidsin täiesti ainulaadse musta vintage kleidi, millel on kuldsete tikanditega käised. Üks pilk kleidile ja ütlesin endale: "See on minu!"

Kleit on õmmeldud Soomes ja väike silt annab teada: "Atelier Hele Patjas. Handmade. Järvenpää. Finland". Kui ma kleidi kätte võtsin, tundsin, kuidas sellest hoovas mõnusat boheemlaslikku hõngu. Ma ei tea miks, kuid mulle kangastus selle kleidiga Muumitrollide looja, kirjanik ja kunstnik Tove Jansson. 

Ma olen tema laia haaret alati imetlenud, oma tütrega vaadanud kõiki Muumide multifilme 1001 korda ja kui käisin sel aastal Helsingis Ateneumi kunstigaleriis tema arvukate tööde näitusel, olin kõige enam lummatud ainulaadsetest fotodest Tove kõrgete lagedega kodust. Need pildid minu uuest kleidist (mis maksis 3.50 € - täiesti naeruväärne hind, kas pole?) on väike jätk Stellariumi maaromantika kaadritele. Ka sel korral lisasin kleidile Hunteri kahevärvilised kummikud. Kuna fotosid tehes tulin parasjagu peolt, siis kandsin kleidi all kohevat seelikut, et kogu komplekt kelmikam oleks. Ah jaa, sellele väärikale kleidile panin väärika nime - Tove.

Second Campaign: Burberry & Karmen or Carmen?

Stellariumi kampaania teine kangelane on kaelakee "Karmen or Carmen?", mis on inspireeritud minu rohelistest silmadest ja küsimusest, mida mulle kõige sagedamimi esitatakse: "Karmen K-ga või Carmen C-ga?" Nimelt on lisaks Stellale mul veel teinegi nimi Karmen - nii kutsuvad mind minu vanemad, lapsepõlvesõbrad ja veel mõned lähedased. 

Ma armastan nii paljusid parfüüme, kuid pärast kõhklusi ja kahtlusi valisin "Karmen Or Carmen?" ehte kaaslaseks Burberry parfüümi Brit Rythm. Selles lõhnas on annus soojust, mida vajan igasse päeva. Iga päevaga hiilib sügis lähemale, kuid selles lõhnas on peidus veel killuke suve. Ma näen vaimusilmas lillelapsi paljajalu murul jooksmas, neil on juustes valged lilled ja nende krooniks on muretus. Just muretus on see, mis on peidetud Burberry parfüümi Brit Rythm. 


Pole ka ime  - parfüümi tipunootides pulseerivad inglise lavendel, roosa pipar ja neroli. Ma kujutan elavalt ette, kuidas kõnealune lillelaps mööda lavendlipõlde ennastunustavalt jookseb ... Parfüümi südamenootides virgutavad oranž liilia Absolute ja mustsõstra lehed. Näen vaimusilmas, kuidas see lillelaps mustsõstra põõsa all hinge tõmbab ja magusamaid hetki suvest meenutab. Parfüümi sensuaalsetes põhjanootides domineerivad vetiveeria õli, muskus ja soe puit. Selline oli "Karmen Or Carmeni" lugu. Jääb vaid üle küsida: kas Karmen sooviks olla lillelaps, vaba kõigist kohustustest? Kas ta tuleks elus toime ilma unistusteta? Kas tema loomuses oleks lipata lihtsalt mööda lavendlipõldu, unustades igaveseks, et homne on olemas? Las jääda see saladuseks.

Kui ma esimest korda tutvustasin lugejatele Stellariumi kaelaehteid, kandsin pildistamistel kullaga kaelakeed, sel korral valisin hõbedaga ehted. Kuldset versiooni kaelaehtest "Karmen Or Carmen?" ja selle sünnist näed SIIT. Kui sa tunned, et selles ehtes on killuke sind, saad selle osta SIIT. Ostuga saab kaasa 10 ml Burberry parfüümi "Brit Rythm".


 Stellarium Campaign’s other hero is a necklace with the green stone called “Karmen or Carmen?” that has been inspired by my green eyes and the question I get asked so much: “Karmen with K or Carmen with C?” Besides Stella I happen to have also another name, it is Karmen. I get called Karmen by my parents, childhood friends and some other closest people in my life.     

I do love so many Burberry’s perfumes, but after little hesitation I chose Burberry Brit Rhythm to accompany “Karmen Or Carmen?” necklace. This scent has a dose of warmth I absolutely need daily in my life. Day by day fall is sneaking upon us, but this perfume hides little piece of summer in it. I can imagine flower children running bare foot through the grass, they have white flowers in their hair and they wear easiness as their crown. Yes, easiness is the thing that has been hidden into the Burberry Brit Rhythm perfume. No wonder, perfume top notes have pulsing English lavender, pink pepper and neroli. I imagine vividly how flower child in question runs on lavender fields in a self-forgetting way… Perfume’s heart notes have orange lily Absolute and blackcurrant leaves in it. I can see with my mind’s eye how the flower child is lounging under the blackcurrant bush and resting while remembering summer’s sweetest moments. Sensual base notes have dominant vetiver oil, musk and warm wood. This was a story of “Karmen Or Carmen?”. There is only one more question to ask: do Karmen still wishes to be a girl who is free of all the responsibilities? Does she can get away without any dreams? Would it be in her nature to race through the lavender fields, dreaming forever, that there will be tomorrow? Let it be a secret!    

 When I first introduced my readers Stellarium’s necklaces I wore gold filled one during the photoshoot. This time I chose the silver ones. Golden version necklace “Karmen Or Carmen?” and the story behind it can be found here. If you feel that this jewel has a piece of you in it, you can buy it in here.

First Campaign: Van Cleef & Arpels and Jackie Wears Jeans

Suvel sündis Stellariumil koostöös Pi-Ret Jewelryga kaelaehete kollektsioon, kus leidub kolm graatsiat - "All About Audrey", "Jackie Wears Jeans" ja "Karmen Or Carmen?" Alates tänasest algab Stellariumis kampaania, mis seob need kolm kaelaehet eksklusiivsete parfüümidega. Ostes kaelakee, saad sa kaasa ainulaadse parfüümi. Esimesena tutvustan sulle ehte "Jackie Wears Jeans" ja Van Cleef & Arpelsi parfüümi „Reve“ kohtumist.  

Stellariumi kaelaehe "Jackie Wears Jeans" on inspireeritud legendaarsest Ameerika esileedist Jacqueline Kennedyst, kes armastas juveele ja kellel olid tähendusega Van Cleef & Arpels`i ehted. Jackie kustumatust kirest luksusesemete vastu räägitakse legende. Ta jumaldas kõrgmoodi, antiikööblit ja juveele. Kui Jackie ja John F. Kennedy kihlusid, libistas mees sõrme just Van Cleef & Arpelsi suure smaragdiga sõrmuse. Nende kümnenda pulmaaasta puhuks kinkis JFK oma abikaasale samuti Van Cleef & Arpelsi smaragdi ja teemantitega sõrmuse. Mulle tundus ilus siduda Jackiest inspireeritud ehe just Van Cleef & Arpelsi parfüümiga ja selleks valisin mahlaka lõhna "Rêve". 


Parfüümi "Rêve" tipunootides avaldub Neroli ja mahlane pirn. Südamenootides leiab osmanthuse ja ööliilia vastupandamatu aroomi. Baasnoodis jääb sind paitama kašmiiri pehmus, sandlipuu joovastav aroom ja merevaigu kuldne sära. See lõhn on soe ja magus, kuid temas puudub lääge noot. Ta sobib turgutama sinist esmaspäeva, ta ei vea sind alt, kui lähed esimesele kohtingule või pead oma 10ndat pulma-aastapäeva. See sarmikas lõhn valmistab sind ette kontserdiks või teatrikülastuseks. Ta on lojaalne sõber, kellega jalutada läbi suve sügisesse ja sealt talve, et oodata pikisilmi kevadet. See lõhn sobib igasse aastaaega. Ostes Stellariumi ehte "Jackie Wears Jeans" saad sa kaasa šikis kotikeses "Rêve" - selliseid 10 ml parfüüme sa poest ei leia. Üks pilt räägib rohkem, kui sada sõna – postitusest leiad kaadri parfüümist "Rêve" ja kaelakeest "Jackie Wears Jeans". Kui ma esimest korda tutvustasin lugejatele Stellariumi kaelaehteid, kandsin pildistamistel kullaga kaelakeed, sel korral valisin hõbedaga ehted. Kuldset versiooni samast kaelaehtest ja selle sünnist näed SIIT. Leian, et selline komplekt on täiuslik viis end premeerida! "Van Cleef & Arpelsi" kingitusi kaelaehte ostjatele on piiratud arv. Stellariumi kaelaehet "Jackie Wears Jeans" saab osta SIIT.


 In the summer a jewellery collection in collaboration between Stellarium and Pi-Ret Jewelry was born. Stellarium collection has three graces - “ All About Audrey”, “ Jackie Wears Jeans” and “ Karmen Or Carmen?”. Starting from today there will be a campaign in Stellarium that ties all these three together with exclusive perfumes. 

If you buy a necklace you can get a perfect perfume along with it. First I will introduce you a necklace “Jackie Wears Jeans” and its meeting with Van Cleef & Arpels perfume “Reve”.   Stellarium’s necklace “Jackie Wears Jeans” has been inspired by the legendary American first lady Jacqueline Kennedy, who loved jewels and wore Van Cleef & Arpels’ accessories. There are legends going around that talks on Jackie’s passion about everything luxurious.  She adored high fashion, antique furniture and jewels. When Jackie and John F. Kennedy got engaged, the ring that the man put in her finger was Van Cleef & Arpels’ one with big emerald stone. For their 10th anniversary JFK gifted her wife another Van Cleef & Arpels’ ring with diamonds and emeralds. 


 It felt appropriate to tie Stellarium’s necklace “Jackie Wears Jeans” with a perfume by Van Cleef & Arpels and I chose it to be the juicy scent called Reve. Reve has the top notes of neroli and juicy pear. Heart notes include irresistible aroma of osmanthus, peony and lily. Base note will be for the caressing softness of cashmere, sandal wood and sparkling golden amber. This perfume warm and sweet, yet it doesn’t have overly sweet notes in it. It suits perfectly into the blue Monday to energise you and it won’t let you down when you are going on your first date or are celebrating your 10th wedding anniversary.  This charming scent will prepare you for the upcoming concert or theatre performance you plan on visiting. It will be a loyal friend who will walk beside you through summer into the fall and winter in oder to wait for the spring. It will be perfect for every season! If you buy Stellarium’s adornment “Jackie Wears Jeans” you will get the Reve perfume that comes in a chic bag.  One picture tells more than thousand words - here is the shot of the perfume “Reve” and necklace “Jackie Wears Jeans”. What a wonderful way to pamper yourself!  Presents along with necklaces come in a limited amount. Stellarium’s necklace “Jackie Wears Jeans” can be bought in here.

Three Little Pics: Stellarium new campaign

Suvel sündis Stellariumil koostöös kodumaise Pi-Ret Jewelryga kaelaehete kollektsioon. Kaelakeed disainides sai meie motoks: "Kanna ehet ise, ära lase ehtel ennast kanda!". Stellariumi kollektsioonis on kolm õde, igal ühel oma lugu ja oma nimi - "All About Audrey", "Jackie Wears Jeans" ja "Karmen Or Carmen?" 

Alates homsest algab Stellariumis kampaania, mis seob need kolm kaelaehet eksklusiivsete parfüümidega. See tähendab, et ostes kaelaehte, saad sa kingituseks ka parfüümi. Vihjeks nii palju, et Stellariumi kaelaehete kollektsiooniga teevad koostööd Burberry, Lanvin ja Van Cleef & Arpels. Uhked ja ajalooga nimed, kas pole? Seniks jagan sinuga kolme kaadrit Stellariumi kaelaehte esimesestest pildiseeriatest! Milline on nendest kolmest sinu lemmikuim värv ja millise firma parfüüm tekitab sinus kõige rohkem põnevust?

All About Audrey
Karmen Or Carmen?

In the summer Stellarium and Pi-ret Jewelry created the jewellery collection that consisted of the necklaces. When we designed the jewellery we managed to adapt a moto: “Wear the jewellery yourself, don’t let the jewellery to wear you.” Stellarium collection had three necklaces and every piece has its own story and name- “All About Audrey”, “ Jackie Wears Jeans” and “ Karmen Or Carmen?”.  

Starting tomorrow, there will be a campaign in the Stellarium that ties all these necklaces with exclusive perfumes. That means when you buy a necklase, you get a perfume as a gift. As a hint I can tell you that Stellarium collaborates with Burberry, Lanvin and Van Cleef & Arpels. Extraordinary and historical names, agree? Meanwhile I share three shots with you that have been taken from the first photo session on thee Stellarium necklaces! Which one of these necklaces is your absolute favourite?
