Random snaps for Valentine’s Day, 2014.

Jirina Alanko shot these photographs on the courtyard and staircase of my apartment in Helsinki. The Jugendstil house was built in 1910.

I’m wearing a dreamy forest green velvet Claudette dress by Collectif, paired with a 1930s reversible cape; black velvet on one side, silver glitter on the other, and a 30s bracelet.
