Hel Looks is a nice streetstyle blog. I love to read the comments people make about themselves and their clothes.
"I've bought my dress, shoes and bag in America, the jacket is from Nasta store and the beret from a thrift store.
I like the femininity of the 40's and the 50's, but also the men's style of those decades. I've liked this style since I was a kid, so it's natural to me. It's my lifestyle."
Maija (25) and Anna (27)
Maija: "I like vintage but also comfortable clothes like rubber boots. I don't like new clothes and their often plastic-like feeling. Old filmstars like Marlene Dietrich inspire me."
Anna: "I think people used to dress up more beautifully before. I would be happy if I could wear a pencil skirt every day. 30's Berlin, smoky speakeasies, fishnet stockings and boas inspire me."
"All my clothes are second hand except the shirt which is from Gina Tricot.
I like feminine clothes. Lace is my new obsession and hats are a must. 50's movie stars and old-time glamour inspire my style. I don't like to wear modern clothes."
"My jumpsuit is made by VintagEija's out of an original 50's fabric. I and Eija got the idea while browsing old magazines. My frames and ear rings are from the 50's, too.
I found my style over 20 years ago. I shop online, at parties and at VintagEija's."
"I always wear red, black and white. I like to mix 50's style with bright colours. 50's clothes suit my body type. I'm vegan and therefore I never wear leather. I admire old film stars like Marlene Dietrich and theatricality of opera.
Indie music ie. outsiders' music inspires me. Norwegian band Kaizers Orchestra have a great style: tight-fitting black-and-red suits."
"My style is 50's teddy boy. I haven't changed my style since 1965.
Clothes have to be tailor-made but it's very hard to find a good tailor these days. The cut and the quality is much better when the clothes are tailor-made. I was very lucky to find these original 50's shoes four years ago."
Fiona Timantti (25)
"I'm wearing a self-made skirt and a hat with a 40's vintage jacket, shirt and bag. My style is inspired by the 30's and the 40's.
I also like Tiia Vanhatapio's new collection and film noir."
"I found my style when I was 13 years old. It began with music. I like vintage clothes from the 40's, the 50's and the 60's. I shop at my own store Nasta. My style is my lifestyle.
My favourite designer is Christian Dior. Marlene Dietrich is the most stylish person I know."
