last night i attended a vip shopping night at the diesel helsinki flagship.
unaware until the very last minute that the event was organized for bloggers only, i got stage fright walking in: i blog anonymously (or i like to think so although my belief came into question today when anne kukkohovi recognized me...) and felt moderately exposed in the midst of other bloggers whose faces i could recognize.
with the abundant servings of nibbles, scantier samples of drinks and a significant discount on the products the night offered a perfect lure combo for any fashionista. with music dj'd by daniel palillo, and henna koskinen the ambience was friendly and fresh.
diesel offered us a peek at their spring/summer collections with outrageously coiffed models walking amongst the guests. as could be expected i was most fond of their black label line.
still, i found a perfect pair of jeans that i decided to sleep on. they're slightly ripped and torn and i love the short length that's perfect for shoe exposure -- summer is, after all, all about flaunting footwear!
in the end, silver and i got matching jewelry; he a bracelet and i a pair of earrings. they came packed in the cutest little boxes and entitled us to a freebie tigi product. well done, i say.
the song that stuck from the night is the kooks cover of mgmt's "kids". lovely. (downloadable here via music ramen.)
