several bloggers, such as petra and anna-maria, were captured by hel-looks, and yours truly was also amongst them. my second time at hel-looks felt just as uneasy as the first even though the duo behind the blog are incredibly nice and comforting. despite flow festival being dubbed "helsinki fashion week" by some people and "hipster hell" by others, i just noted familiar faces and stylish people.
i was shot on friday after running from a hectic day at work straight to the festival area. my gear wasn't planned nor did i go for anything in particular. compared to many other festival goers, my look was very un-fashion forward. my guiding theme for the entire weekend was comfort and ease: looseness, flat shoes and layered warmth.
the pic turned out great – no thanks to the model who looks like she gained about 10lbs since last seen, hasn't slept for a week and whose feet pointing inward were already considered a sign of pigeon-toed retardation *smirk*. i felt good in the outfit: happy and glittery candy pink bliss.
cheers to the photographer and whatevs to the lousy model.
