So it's finally time for answers to your questions. Sorry it took so much time and still didn't managed to answer to all the questions. I tried to answer in English and also in Estonian.

1.Mis su lemmik film on? 2 days in Paris - Saab naerda, mõelda, Pariisi imetleda. The Italian Job (2003) Parim tagaajamisfilm koos ilusate autodega (loomulikult Mini Cooperitega)
2.Milline muusika sulle meeldib? nimeta mõned bändid/artistid. Gossip, Lykke Li, The Kills, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Ladyhawke, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Kings of Leon,  
3.Kust saad inpiratsiooni? Mulle meeldib nt ehete, piltide tegemise, riiete valimise vms  ajal muusikat kuulata. Tavaliselt loob see õige meeleolu ja sel viisil ka inspireerib mind.
4.Kui sa saaksid kogu oma ülejäänud elu kanda ainult ühte värvi, milline see oleks? Ma loodan, et sellist asja kunagi ei juhtu, et ma peaksin ainult ühe värvi valima..
5.Kaua sul võtab ühe enda lukukäevõru vms tegemine aega? Vähemalt 10 tundi (ega ma neid järjest ühe korraga ei teegi valmis). Võibolla olen ma lihtsalt aeglane, aga kõige rohkem võtab aega lõppviimistlus ja tahaküljele voodri õmblemine. 
6.Kas Tartu kui elukeskkond on Sinu stiili kujunemist mõjutanud? Tartu on tore linn, aga mulle tundub, et see mu riietumist küll ei mõjuta. Kui ma elaksin Tallinnas, kas ma siis riietuksin teistmoodi? Ise tahaks uskuda et mitte. Aga enne ei saa teada, kui järele ei proovi (Tallinnas elamist).
7.Kuna ja kus sa sündisid?16.august, Tartu
8.Kust sa õppisid inglise keelt rääkima? Koolis loomulikult ja õpin vähemalt 4 aastat veel. Ma loomulikult soovin, et ma oskaksin paremini, aga usun et blogimine ja üldse internetis suhtlemine inglise keeles aitab kaasa. Ilmselt suur osa sõnavarast tulebki filmidest ja internetist.
9.Kas sul on poiss-sõber? ei
10.Kas koolis on ka neid õelaid Bitche kes nn imelikult vaatavad sind ja sinu stiili? Eks neid ikka ole, igalpool. Aga kedagi kindlat ma küll välja tuua ei oska (ja kui oskaksingi, siis ma ilmselt ei teeks seda :D)
12.Mis hinded sul on? neljad-viied
13.Mis on su tulevikuplaanid ?  Mulle ei meeldi oma tulevikku kaugele ette planeerida, aga esialgu proovin ikka selle blogiga jätkata.
14.Kuhu kooli soovid edasi õppima minna ?  Eestis on ka kindlasti häid ülikoole aga muidugi ma võin unistada elamast hubases katusekorteris Pariis ja seal koolis käimast.
16.Kas saad ka kuus taskuraha, palju? Ma ei saa igakuulist taskuraha, saan tavaliselt siis, kui millegi kindla asja jaoks vaja on. Ja palju asju ostan ka enda teenitud raha eest.
17.Kas sa shoppad ka kaubamajades jne? Ja ikka, aga nendest ma leian lihtsalt harvemini sobivaid riideid.
18.Kus asub tartus taaskasutuspoed kus müüakse ka mööblit jne, sisustusesemeid? Näiteks Tartu Taaskasutuskeskuses ja selle õuel on päris mitu vana mööbliga kauplevat poodi. Ise olen sealt ostnud kingariiuli ja ühe vanaaegsete raamidega peegli. http://www.taaskasutuskeskus.ee/
20.Tuleviku plaanid , ma mida veel tahaksid nn DIY projektiks teha , ideid? Kuna kevadel oli mul mingi sulgede teema, ostsin neid igalpoolt võimalikult palju kokku. Nüüd nad seisavad seal sahtlis ja oleks vist nendega midagi ette võtta.
21.Näita meile oma tuba ja riidekappi? Riidekappi juba nägite (siin), varsti näete ka tuba:)
22.Kas sa oled modell? Ei, vähemalt veel mitte, peaksin paar sentimeetrit veel kasvama
24.kuidas tuli mõte avada moeblogi ja hakata nii-öelda "stiilimutiks" Haha, ega see vast ei ole niisama, et võtan kätte ja hakkan. Aga blogi algseks eesmärgiks oli mul vast omatehtud asjade (DIY projektide) kõigiga jagamine.
25.Mis materjali sa kasutasid aluseks käevõrude ja kõrvarõngaste tegemisel? (seda musta mõtlen). See on selline vildi moodi riie, nagu mantliriie või midagi sellist.
26.Palju sa selle etsy poega teeninud oled? (ei pea vastama, kui see on isiklik info)? Täpset summat ei oska isegi öelda, aga uue kaamerale objektiivi ostuks veel raha koos ei ole :D
27.Kas sa tegeled veel sellega ajakirjavahetusega? Kui jah siis mis ajakirju sa saadad ja saad ise vastu? Jah, ühe prantsuse tüdrukuga. Tema on saatnud mulle paar Pariisi Vogue. Ise soovis ta vastu Eesti moeajakirju, neid just palju pole:D
28.Kust tuleb sinu huvi moe vastu? Ma ei mäleta kahjuks, kust see alguse sai. Aga kindel on see, et see suureneb iga päevaga.
28.Kas sul on stiilikoon? keegi keda ma pidevalt jälgiks ja kelle stiili ma jäljendada püüaksin, ei. Aga mulle meeldib näiteks Kate Lanphear.
29. Kas sul on õdesid-vendi? Jah, 3 õde - Meeri, Tuuli, Liisi
30. Kas neil on ka blogid? Jah Tuulil on blogi Fallie's scrapbook

DIY Rodarte inspired sweater

Okay, here is it. At the moment only one bad photo, I think it looks actually better :D. Of course it came out 2x bigger than it should be, so I'm not going to make tutorial, just one tip: Use thin mohair yarn but large knitting needles!

Pure perfection

QUESTIONS

It's time for the questionS&answers post! So start asking, ...what do you want to know about me. Ask whatever you want to, though not anything extremely personal. I'd prefer fashion/style/music/films etc. related questions. And one day I'll make a post with the answers.
(Leave your question(s) under that post)

DIY TUTORIAL: Shoulder pads

Cause some of you were interested in the shoulder pads I made and had lot of questions I decided to make a little tutorial, actually just some tips.

At first you need (to make exactly the same shoulder pads I made but there's thousands of ways to create embellished shoulders, be creative!):
*2 foam shoulder pads, should be available at every fabric shop, in different sizes and shapes.
*Of course a thread and a needle + some pins.
*50 large bronze/golden studs, available at http://studsandspikes.com
*2 7/8" Coque Feather Fringe, I ordered from www.mjtrim.com


Handsew the feather fringe on the shoulder pads, then add the studs to hide the stiches. When it's done, sew the shoulder pads with couple of stiches on your favourite blazer or t-shirt.

DIY: Shoulder pads with studs and feathers


Again I have to start my post with telling - I'm sick, again. I had a bunch of big bronze studs and the beautiful coque feather fringe, so I decided to make shoulder pads. I wasn't able to make some photos while wearing those because I look terrible (fever makes people look bad :D). I hope that I'll get some better photos soon, oh and my Rodarte insipired sweater is also ready. I should do a big photoshoot one day to show you all my new creations and recent buys.
