Teacher Style day 46, new coat is about the get a makeover

Todays outfit all vintage and second hand. But what's more interesting is the new coat i've got. It was on it's way to trash when i saved it. I was thinking about giving it a proper makeover. A 1930's style collar! But instead of fur i was thining about using knitted fabric. 
Here's my inspiration:

Teacher style day 45, wearing wool inspired by late 20's/early 30's

 This outfit was inspired by late 20's/early 30's wollen cardigans and the fact tht the weather is getting colder! Gardican is hand made by Leena from Vaasa. Shoes are from the 40's, my favourite oair for everyday wear. Everything else is second hand.

 We had halloween theme at school and here's my outfit! Vintage 50's dress and catears and a tail i made myself. (Wonderful 90's film camera vibes in this photo...)

 Tired but extremely happy, me and my students organized a fashion show and it was a success!

I also visited Pietarsaari and the Centria University of Applied SciencesI was invited there to teach the millinery basics to a very cool and motivated group of people. I was very happy to share my knowledge with those young talents.

Teacher Style day 40, Superhero or a Villain?

Had a superhero moment at work with my new coat (from the recycling centre, only 5€!) and a mask one of the students is making. Not sure if this character is a hero or a villain...

Kirsi, Tiian and me. Those gals are very dear to my heart!

I was wearing a Trashion dress by Paula Malleus / remake ekodesign. I totally fell in love with this dress! To me the silhouette is very vintage/1930's. And guess what, it's made of Tuska Festival (the biggest heavy metal festival in finland) t-shirts!
