Tove Jansson exhibition

For a long time I was planning to arrange a lolita meetup in Ateneum in order to visit Tove Jansson's exhibition, and finally it succeeded! 

It was my second time visiting the exhibition so I tried to focus on the things that I did not remember from my first visit, but in the end I ended up admiring mostly the same paintings as I did already. 

One of my favourites was this self-portrait with bobcat-muff:

I kept telling myself to focus non-Moomin art, but I couldn't help but enjoy the cute flowers, characters and landscapes that could have been straight from the Moominworld. Also, it was so cute to find small random Moomin characters from some of her work.

After the museum visit we took some pictures and visited -surprise surprise- Fazer cafe. 

Here's our group photo:

I haven't been wearing gothic lolita or EGL for a while, and when I was planning my outfit it was a bit "freezy"... But after some thinking it was nice to find my inner gothic loli again and just enjoy wearing the beautiful clothes! 

And guess what!

I got to wear my new Iron Gate in public!

So I'm a happy owner of Moitié's Iron Gate, my ultimate dream dress (or in this case, skirt). I'm happy that the skirt I got is the longer version, since Moitié is usually showing half of my tights. :'D

Here's what I'm wearing:

Skirt, blouse, headdress, socks, shoes: Moi-même-Moitié,
jacket: Black Peace Now,
can't remember where the accessories are from...

Tomorrow it's back to uni! I'm trying to dare and wear lolita more often, even for lectures and such. Also, I wish to get to attend lots of meetups during the autumn since it's finally the perfect temperature to wear lolita. *-*

Thank you for reading this post~

Villa Anneberg

It has been a while!

This summer I have mostly just been working and there has been only little time to wear lolita, so I was very happy to receive a invitation to Katarina's birthday picnic!

Kata, Susanna and I went to Villa Anneberg (Annalan huvila) that's located in middle of Vanhakaupunki and Arabianranta. It's really worth visiting, it has a lovely atmosphere and amazing flowerbeds (I have been working there as a gardener for the summer so I should know. :'D).

Kata had prepared cake and other treats for us and everything tasted yummy. :3

(All pictures are taken by Katarina, please do not copy them without permission from her.)

The American styled cheesecake was my favourite.

It was the first time I got to wear my new Innocent World dress! It has deers in it and I love it. *-*

Sorry for the derpy face but it was really sunny. We're lucky that we didn't melt.

My companion!

Thank you for reading this post~<3

Tea parties and some sushi

It has been a while!

There are some longer posts I would like to share but I'm planning on using a little more time with them so they can wait! In the meantime, here's something little from tea parties and meet ups. <3

Mimi was kind to invite us to her house for some tea. I really love their interior decoration, it's like sipping tea in a museum! Sanni Siira took some lovely pictures and I'm taking the authorization of sharing my favourites. Please do not copy any of her work.

Our group photo:

And my outfit:

Skirt, socks: Moi-même-Moitié,
shoes: YOSUKE,
blouse, hat: second-hand,
choker: made by Iiraliina,
rest is off-brand.

Some time ago I also had the pleasure to attend a sushi meet up! It was held in Helsinki, which was nice since there hasn't been any meetings in a long time. It was arranged by Katja.

I totally forgot to take pictures from the restaurant but the place (Umeshu) was really nice and fancy! And the sushi was tasty.

Here is our group photo and the outfit of the day:

Dress, jacket: Baby, the stars shine bright,
mini-hat: Angelic Pretty,
socks: Moi-même-Moitié,
shoes: Montreal,
bag: Liz Lisa

It was a kind of cold day but I just HAD to wear something else than my winter-coat, so I stuffed myself with knits and shirts and felt like a overly stuffed plush toy. :D

Also, I lovelovelove pink. Bf got the jacket for me as a present and I found the mini-hat from Hellocon's flea-market. <3 Some day I might retire from sweet lolita, but that day is not today!

Thank you so much for taking a look at this post.
