On the street. Remembering Woodstock, Lauttasaari, Helsinki.

I'm always super duper happy when I encounter an elderly lady going true to the person she has been in her younger years. Or what do I know. Maybe she has started dressing up like this after having seen Pirates of the Caribbean in the movies. Though it is very unlike, I guess.

Those lovely long pigtails which are bound into rings are far too original to be copied from somewhere.

On the street. Free layering, Kamppi, Helsinki.

 This time the eye-catcher was the blue wide skirt. The form of the skirt definitely stood out from the queue. When it was paired with trousers of the same color the whole outfit got a very personal touch.

I had a change to ask about her marvelous skirt. She told me it was made by her friend according to her idea. The idea was to make a similar style skirt that she had used as a child. There was a layering of tulle fabric  under outer shell. It ensured a wide, beautiful shape skirt.

I specially admired the wide pockets that could easily eat up a sketchbook.
