Woolen jumper - wonderful 1940's vintage jumper! Found dumpster diving. The original blue collar was made of silk and it was in very bad shape so i had to make a new one. I found cotton fabric that was just the same colour as the original.
I'm not working as a teacher today, so no Teacher Style photo untill tomorrow. Instead i will tell you about the party we had yesterday. We had a 10 years anniversary BBQ party with some friends. 10 years ago i was asked to model some Latex by a marvelous lady, Kirsi Nisonen. I said yes gladly. It was a start of a beautiful friendship and my loveaffair with latex clothing.
The location was delightful! It's called Teurastamo (slaughterhouse because of it's former purpose but these days it's a place for fun, friends, food and sharing, not death).
Me and Kirsi.
I'm wearing an amazing 80's does 40's/50's vintage dress from Ansa (where else! :)

One of my all time favourite femme fatales, actress Lauren "Betty" Bacall has passed away yesterday. She was the last one of the hollywood golden era stars mentioned in the song Vogue by Madonna.
Lauren Bacall (born Betty Joan Perske, september 16, 1924), member of the original Rat Pack, appeared in 30 films, her movie career lasted over six decades and she also found success on Broadway.
Lauren Bacall received an Honorary Academy Award in 2009.
So! Exciting news! I will be a millinery teacher from this day till the end of this year (at least..). To make it even more fun (i'm super happy and it's gonna be SO much fun as it is) i'm gonna be posting a pic of my outfit daily. This is the first one, Teacher Style!
