If only these streets could be your lovers

Usually I am super lazy to take out my camera, no matter how cool is what I see. Although I photograph a lot with my phone that I've got from my mother for my birthday, it still makes only 10% of what I think would be nice to photos of. This fall I tried to kill my laziness and take out that god damn phone more often.

All these photographs are taken with my iPhone 5 and edited with an app called PS Express. It's a free app where you can manipulate with toning, contrast, the darkness and lightness of the shadows and highlights, I love using it! If I could I would have added some features like sharpening function and masking.

I've been feeling very romantic lately. For me, personally, these photographs are taken with a romantic filter in front of the lens. They are hiding romantic feelings, erotic dreams and longing in themselves.
 It's about the feeling when you are not walking alone anymore.

This is how much I love walking around in the city at night,with lights fooling around on the wet street. I don't mind the darkness, it's more fun at night.



September with Mickey

There was a competition on Lookbook.nu where two attendees could win a free trip with all costs covered to New York Fashion Week. It felt kind of awkward not to try your luck, especially when you are spending so much time posting new looks there anyway. At this time I was watching Friends from the first episode to the really really last one. They did ten amazing seasons and filled my brain with New York.

Always, when there is a really special event I have to take part of, I want to wear something I made myself. It's been like this for years and I can't really explain this because I don't understand this weirdness myself. My best scenario of me dressing really cool is if I could order the clothes custom made by professionals, designed by me of course. I mean, if you can afford designer clothes, can't you afford in this case something more unique and tailored especially for you? I guess the process won't take much longer than ordering clothes abroad. Just imagine finding a very unique and inspirational vintage fabric and you get this cool idea that you want a jacket out of it. And boom, you're cool! Cooler than Lady Gaga in her meat dress or Kanye West with his Alexander McQueen face mask.

Anyway, I found this fun bed sheet from a thrift store and wanted to make a shirt out of it. Which didn't take more than a half hour to finish, a very simple three pieces long sleeve shirt. It's always fun to make these!

Unfortunately this was the last time I wore these white shoes which I wound from a second hand shop for four euros. They were Nike's golf shoes and someone painted them white, which I really liked. Not sure what happened but for some reasons they got really moldy from the inside. What the heck?! Anyway I had to through them away. I feel really bad for the cow who's skin these shoes were made, good find though.

 You may notice I photoshopped the background to match the shirt theme. Otherwise the photograph would be so boring to watching that it would literally hurt eyes and and burn two holes into your brain! You never know what are photography's hidden powers!

To sum this blah blah up, no, I did not win a trip to NY! But I hope the winners had a blast over there!!!

Top 5 Youtube upcycle fashion tutorials

Youtube is an amazing source for all kind of new knowledge. People give such an effort to produce videos about topics close to their hearts. It's not just for musicians to promote their music and boost sells. Young geniuses have kick ass channels too. I truly believe that today's education is getting more and more online and video classes are new way to study on your own ease that suits your busy life the best.

Photography, styling, tailoring, graphic design, cooking, you name it, someone probably has a video about it. I'm watching non-stop everything photography related like video courses about posing, photo editing tricks, business and so on.

Not that long time ago came across some unbelievably amazing videos about upcycling, I had to pick up my mouth from the floor. Upcycling clothing is like breaking the rules for me. It's so much fun and for me it lifts the value of the garment. Also you can save money, create your own unique style, lessen global waste and such through re-using and pimping your new stuff, instead of binning it and get new piece that is made in China or Bangladesh. A lot of people even earn money with their upcycling fashion. This makes a whole new group of DIY/Upcycle designers who's clothing look very wearable and professional.

Here are few awesome Youtube links I've stumbled on.
This one is my all time favorite upcycle video. I mean this women is a genius! And especially watch the end, it's a killer!

This one is more documentary video about London's upcycling business. Awesome work, I wish that kind of businesses would bloom around the world!

First I was very skeptical when she said in this video "few years old H&M coat". But the end result was like "omg I want this". I love her energy!

Going through all kind of upcycling video tutorials I've got an idea, why not make underwear out of old t-shirts? I found few DIY underwear tutorial and in one panties were made out of t-shirt sleeves. Although underwear and everything down stairs is extremely holy, it would be okay to create them from owners own old shirts. In case someone got undie-excited and got a future vision blast about creating upcycled underwear business, then go for it but use other textiles than thrift store shirts. Second hand stores are full of excess fabrics, small and big pieces. It's better to use something unused for that kind of intimate projects. Other than that, it's a nice way to turn your favorite unwearable t-shirt with cool print into new pair of underwear.

She made undies in 14 minutes! I love the way she cuts out the pieces without measuring. Also her moves are so fast, I thought "wow don't hurt yourself!". Especially the way she puts her fingers close to her overlock. My serger has cutting blades, so this is like an undie horror movie, seriously!
