Fisherman sweaters, midi skirts & Paola Suhonen by Seppälä

Helsinki, 10 degrees

A pigeon wing under my armpit.

Yesterday I started to go through my montly women magazines and I thought that I would continue to review today. My long time favorite magazine Trendi had a page about Aran/ fisherman sweaters. I have to have me one of those! That is my Novemberly task!

I especially like the combination of an Aran knit with a midi skirt. How about you? What's the right way to wear one of these sweaters?

Trendi was also the first of these magazines to tell me about the upcoming co-operation between Finnish brand Seppälä and designer Paola Suhonen, known for her lovely IvanaHelsinki brand. The affordable brand Seppälä will launch this collection the 1st of November, so add that date to your calendars.

Olivia magazine introduces small black purses that fascinate me. They call the clutches pigeon wings, how cute.

My favorite "pigeon wing" is the clutch by Irene Mikaela, made out of reindeer leather and juniper tree. That's Finnish design for you!
