I just got a comment from Anonymous to my post about vintage ideas for men. She/he said that zoot suit is not IN. I mean really! Since when has it been compulsory to only like/write about what's in? Ofcourse people may have different taste when it comes to clothing and fashion. I'm interested in fashion, but if you only want to read posts about what is IN at the moment, you're in the wrong blog pal.

I got an invitation to see the new movie Hella W before the premier. That was because i lent some of my hats to be used in the film (yes, my name was in the credits! :)
The movie was great! I was so impressed by the costumes, music, cars...And the actors were splendid. Especially Tiina Weckström as Hella.
The atmosphere of the film is simply compelling.
And Hella Wuolijoki is a very interesting character, a strong, independet woman, an author who wrote books under the name Juhani Tervapää (because when she wrote under her own name, her books got censored..), tough business woman and active in politics. She did many things a woman was not expected to do back in her days.
Me and my friend, one wonderful lady, Sirpa.
My new car ( i wish!). This beauty was parked outside the movie theatre. We didn't get a ride to the after party, luckily it was only a block away.
Oh, please! These are just too good to be true! I think i need those...But they don't have them in my size in pink at the moment :/
Just imagine..Remove the marabou slippers from this pic and replace them with those bunny slippers. Makes a huge difference! :D
Order your own pair here.

Hey guys! That's a Chinese Proverb, that got me thinking. There are few FT best sellers that i would like to name. Help me name these hats and i'll revard one of you with a FT hat! Just leave a comment here or send me e-mail fionatimantti(at)gmail.com
This one has been called Garbo (after Greta ofcourse), do you think that's a good name for this one?
What about this one then? I've been making this in many different colours, as you can see here.
This ^ one is for sale at MADEBY.fi (I do ship worldwide!)

One of the most important bands in my life and a very inspiring video. One of my top three favourites along with Stand Inside Your Love and Tonight, Tonight.

I have a new hobby! I've started to take dance lessons (well, i used to do ballroom dancing when i was younger but thats a different story). I'm taking Authentic Jazz Dance lessons, and it's so much fun!
Here the song for you we were dancing to yesterday.
I found this new website today, called "For the Love of Opera Gloves!". Interesting site, not really pretty or easy to use, but oh gee, i've never seen that many pictures of opera gloves! I think this page is for the people who really love opera glover, but even if you are not crazy about them, this is a very interesting site to visit. There are some new pictures too (for example photos of 90's supermodels wearing opera gloves, though Suzy Parker's there too..) but also lots of older photos. Here are some of my favourite pics. Look at those hats!
I think i love everything about this photo. The gloves, the hat, the dress..and this lady is beautiful in very unique way.
"Too much? No? Good."
Lovely gloves and jewellery.
This hat makes me smile!
Yes, the hats and the gloves...but look at those shoes!
If i had the money, i would start making shoes right now! Fiona Timantti Shoes?
