Questions & Answers: (an extremely tiny and various) part one

Happy March! For a start I would like to exhibit my outfit photos from the 25th of February when I and E. took a breezy trip to Rakvere. What was the occasion? We were in already long-run need of a brand-new kitchen pot and a kitchen scale as well since the last one got smashed. Actually we simply found it hopelessly broken in its box... a pretty shady story. Of course we had to buy some building materials and I purchased a few accessories too. Oh, E. bought himself a pair of shoes for spring, so everybody got their something and I also put together this small collage of my low-price finds.


Anyhow, my outfit.. this black button-up blouse originates from the last thrifting round in my hometown and it costed me wholly 1.- euro. The black coat costed absolutely nothing. You can also marvel my newest wedge boots which I promised to present you. I'm totally in love with those cuties and the price was something around 30.- euros, so more than affordable. What do you, guys, think?


I was wearing: coat - OTK HYVINKÄÄ /thrifted/; button-up blouse - Pola /thrifted/; faux leather skirt - Amisu; leggings - Lindex; wedge boots - Sempre; wing shaped earrings - Seppälä.

Now on a slightly different note: I'm going to start off with answering all your questions and will use several posts to do this. My quick choice to end today's post is following (don't worry, the next questions and answers posts will definitely include a lot more answers):
    • What are you currently carrying in your handbag?

      My Hello Kitty wallet, a notebook, two pens, an old two-sided nail file, four fake-Chanel buttons I found while free-thrifting, The Body Shop Spa Wisdom Africa Spa hand and foot butter (I'm out of it for the time being though), my Barbie mirror, three hair accessories, three colourful lipsticks (Rouge Dior - Diorlywood Pink; Clinique High Impact Rouge Impact - Extreme Pink; Oriflame Pure Colour - Desert Rose), Oriflame protecting lip balm, tissues, a pair of sunnies, a switchboard for my workplace's gate, a memory stick, a reflector from the police, Teen Vogue (I'm still reading December/January issue..). And my current handbag is from Armani Jeans.

        1. I just can and it's easy breezy ;) snow is so common and sometimes we have it for six months here in Estonia, so it's absolutely normal to wear heels then :)

      6. I love these buttons...we won't say anything on them being faux because they look like the real deal. I also love the boots in your outfit post!

      8. You really do find the most amazing deals - a one euro blouse and 30 euro boots in one outfit? Fabulous. And the faux leather mini you paired them both with is just perfect! But what really caught my eye is your amazing manicure. Your nails look absolutely incredible! I just peeled off my latest manicure at work today, and seeing your pretty nails, I'm even more sorry that I did :(

      14. ma ei saa aru, kuidas sinu positused mul alati teiste vahele kuidagi ära kaovad, et ma alles kunagi saja aasta pärast näen, et uus postitus on... aga, oo, isegi mul peaks see barbie peegel ju kuskil olema! see vist tuli happy mealiga kunagi kaasa, kui ma õigesti mäletan?

        1. mäki kvaliteetkraam, mhm, aga mind on päris kenasti teeninud :P

          ma ei tea, mis sul seal dashboard'il aset leiab siis pidevalt :D mina sain omal korda selle asja.. vähemalt sinu blogiga seotult. mõnede muude blogide postitusi ei jõua aga minu dasboard'ile üldse, nii-et jah, good old story ilmselt.

      15. The shoes are really cool...I like it. So edgy and modern. I like the what? 1 euro blouse, what an amazing thrifted item. Well done, it's pretty and the ruffles are so gorgeous. Great outfit Maiken ! I always enjoy looking at all our shopping finds. The feather earrings and hearts print tights are so cute. And your bag has so many goodies, the hello kitty wallet is so cute, are you a fan of Hello Kitty? And the nail color is nice, you did them your self?

        1. thank you very much, dear :)
          I think Hello Kitty goodies are simply too cute to resist and I have several of them at home. not too many but some accessories (rings, necklaces etc.) and small toy figures as well.
          when it comes to my nails I have a lovely manicurist and I visit her after every two months (this is how long I stay with the same manicure :P)
