I guess I care because us human beings crave for connections, be it with friends, loved ones, relatives or animals... or a bunch of strangers in the internet.

Earlier this week I stopped by at the Only concept store, and found this wonderful piece of clothing. After a careful 2-minute-long consideration I realised that I didn't even care if I could pull this off or not.
The best part is that not only is it a crazy harem jumpsuit, but it also works as crazy harem trousers!

I adore my new sweater, too. I can't exactly remember why I chose to not wear it this morning though... it might have been something called 'morning brainlessness'. (It is a condition that seems to torment many, especially during the slightly depressing months of October and November. The symptoms: lack of dress-sense in the mornings due to extreme tiredness.)

"Do you have a lot of clothes?", Lina asked me the other day. "Umm... yes... I do... or what do you mean, a lot?", I replied. "Well, do you have a lot?", she specified. Off I went to explain the amount of space I have reserved for my clothes, and as I was doing so, I realised how ridiculous I sounded. I am sure compared to Mariah Carey I don't have many clothes at all, but as my current situation stands, and my double-doored wardrobe, two chests of drawers, a walk-in-closet and two other closets are not enough, I guess I do have a lot of clothes.
Today I started to think that perhaps I have been hoarding clothes because I have trouble defining my style. I try all sorts of styles, and even though I find my experiments awarding, they don't necessarily say much about me. Then take someone like Lina, for example: She confesses that she does not have many clothes, but she has one of the most distinct styles I have ever come across. Whatever she wears, she looks exactly as she should. She never looks out of place in her clothes. Her style compliments her personality in a way that I find astounding. She was photographed for the street style section of Helsingin Sanomat about a year ago, wearing random things she had just thrown on in about 10 seconds because she had to run across the street to meet a friend. Give me 10 seconds to decide what to wear, and I will suffer a nervous breakdown.

When we make choices, the end results should be just as refined and perfect, both inside and out, as the seams of this YSL Rive Gauche blouse.

How crazy are these jeans?! They are way beyond MC Hammer, even. I bought the jeans and the gray scarf at the new Only concept store they have just opened in Helsinki. I tend to associate Only with moody teenagers, but this new store is quite nice, and the staff were very friendly indeed.
