Helsinki looks beautiful!
And the lovely Mette of Metscan has invited us to coffee and chat at
Cafe Aalto, Helsinki, on Wednesday.
This virtual date is an occasion not to be missed.
I for one must be there - I do, after all, sing in the Alto line in my Choir for Ladies of a Certain Age!
Mette's only condition is that we post about what we plan to wear.
Well, I thought if I was quick I could run up a new dress in this chartreuse ponti knit and try Vogue Pattern V8786.
But then, I figured that would be too rushed, it is too cold and wet,
and I am too lazy.
Let's just go with the old fave black-dress-for-all-occasions:
And because I hail from the Sunshine State of Queensland,
where we like a bit of colour,
I will add my vintage fuchsia pink blazer...
and favourite scarf ..
and because I like to promote local designers,
add a couple of Red Phoenix Emporium necklaces.
The Faux Fuchsia Leo with Match My Missoni.
And pearl and sparkle studs.
Black clutch and comfortable new Ziera shoes,
for prowling the streets of Helsinki and taking in the sights!
Thanks Mette, I'll virtually see you there.
What is on the menu?
Is there a special Finnish delicacy we can taste?
