My room was small but comfortable and the breakfast was great. I love hotel breakfasts! The idea of so many different choices, fresh fruits, croissants... I love it. The best thing is that I can just walk in and it's all there, ready to enjoy.
Because I had a free night I arranged to meet a friend who lives in Helsinki. We had nice time, a cup of coffee and went fabric shopping... Here's what I got:
I just couldn't decide if I should take the pink or the blue one, so I got both. ;) My friend was also very supportive and told me I should get both. (That's what girlfriends are for... LOL!) I also bought some sheer fabric to make a petticoat for my two future 50's style sundresses.
I barely had the time to visit Minna Parikka's boutique in Helsinki before going back home, but I didn't have to leave empty-handed (or should I say barefooted?). ;) I got these beautiful dark grey Brigitte boots I've been drooling over for a while now. They were on sale (that's always a good reason, right?), my size and make my big (strong?) calves look oh so fine and slender! I was thinking of buying them from the web boutigue before, but hesitated... very few boots actually fit me because of my "strong" calves.
I just love those bow details on the side!
