Marimekko

Today I finally took my makeup out of the ziplock bag I stuffed them into for our Europe trip, and gave them a new home: a jaunty little bag I bought in Finland from Marimekko.


For some reason, I shy away from prints in my wardrobe, but I really love them! They add such a nice touch. Mika's mom gave me a pair of red Marimekko potholders for Christmas, and they totally pop in our kitchen.

I would love to have some more Marimekko in my wardrobe, like this Ikoni dress designed by Mika Piirainen that's on sale now for $155 (from $255) at the Marimekko US concept store website.


I saw this Fleur jumperdress also by Piirainen in the airport but it was way too big for me. It's the perfect layering piece for winter though (it does not come with the black turtleneck), and would also be a nice summer dress. It's on sale too for $180, but the smallest size available is a size 4. I might have better luck shopping in the kids section.


I think this jacket designed by Samu-Jussi Koski is pretty awesome too. It is reversible so you don't have to commit to that print. It's also on sale for $380, but since the site notes that "this jacket can be ordered up to 3 times smaller", I have a feeling it'll look like a tent on me.


I wish Marimekko would do another collaboration with Anthropologie so I'll have a chance at getting something that actually fits. No more collabs with H&M though, that collection was monstrous.

Cel! We got Marimekko shower curtains from Crate & Barrel! Price isn't bad too. About $50 lang! It really makes our bathroom look so bright and happy!

Thanks Chloe! It's really cute isn't it? I hope somebody grabs it because I can't. Damn little Asian bones ...

Tin, you're right, I should check out Crate & Barrel, they have pretty good collabs actually. So cute!
