A blog for the anti-social fashion lover

Wicked Son


I guess you’ve noticed the headline - ‘A blog for the anti-social fashion lover’. Because that’s who I am, and I’m proud to be the black sheep, the weirdo. I hate fashion weeks and pointless events and I loathe the word fashionista. But I’m still a fashion lover and I still love to blog. Embrace the wickedness, the weirdness, argue if you have to, scream if it helps - dare to be the wicked son!

The September Issue


So Autumn’s here and September’s almost passed. I’m sure we’ve all read one or more September Issues of our favorite magazines. Since my heart belongs to the north, this is the most exciting and the most beautiful time of the year. I get to do layering, wear outerwear and the weather is chilly, what more can you possibly wish for?

When I think about essentials, a faux fur vest is a must for me, so I thought I’d just go on and make one myself. So made this beautiful vest for my girl Laura and let me tell you that it’s a big fucking deal that I made an actual outerwear piece with lining! It took me a few days to make it, but if I would not have a full time job I would have finished it in about a day and a half. Laura says that it’s warm and comfy, she loves it.

She’s actually the girl that takes all of my photos. I know that I can be super annoying with my outfit posts and the need for her to take my pictures, but I just want to use this moment and say thanks to Laura for eduring it and that I love her very much.

This place is called ‘The Castle of Light’, which is actually the Latvian National Library. I totally love the architecture and only wish that Riga had more places like this.But since I’m not a patriot, I see a lot more flaws in this city besides the debris here and there. Is it just too much to ask to take outfit photos on the streets without everyone staring at you with hatred? And it’s something I get to face every day, the minute you look apart from the grey crowd - you’re different and apparantley, that’s bad. But fuck’em, I hope you enjoy the vest that I made! Happy Autumn!

White walls and black Tees

I’ve been putting my sewing machine to work lately, at least I do when I get the chance. I really like this black tee that I made, hope you’ll like it too. I made the numbers from fake leather, I did have problems sewing them onto the fabric, so I used this special fabric glue. The glue is supposed to last long and you can also wash the garment in the washing machine and basically do whatever you want with it. I kind of wish I had made the tee a bit longer, so I could layer it with other garments since fall is coming (finally!).


'92 is the year I was born, shortly after my small country had regained independence. I really don't mean to turn this post into a political discussion, but I feel like it's the least I can do. It's just that the fact that some people still have to worry about their independence in 2014 is more than upsetting. I just want to use this short moment of your attention to say that all my heart goes out to Ukraine and I hope that certain people will come to their senses. Stay strong.

Cats & Destruction

It’s been a while since I’ve shared any of my sewing projects. But lately inspiration has found it’s way back to me and my sewing machine is gonna have to face it and work it’s ass off.

Recently I made this gray oversized sweater and I thought that I could give it a little more life. I bought some acrylics and decided to go for a cute cat face as my first try at hand painting fabric. Previously I’ve only dyed sneakers with acrylics and they turned out pretty good, so I decided to give it a try, I hope you like it!

I’m not sure of how long lasting the print will be, but I love it, I sure will experiment further with some textile paints as well.

The New Fashion Capitals: Part 1 - Helsinki

London, Milan, Paris, New York… over and over and over again. The so called Fashion Capitals with their mainstream fashion weeks and countless designers, models, bloggers and everything that comes with it. Don’t you just want something new? Something fresh? New icons, new idols, cities, esthetiques? Well me too! So let me take you on a journey we’ve both been waiting for.

On this series of articles I’ll take you through the new Fashion Capitals in my opinion and I’ve got some amazing fashion-forward locals to guide us through. First stop - Helsinki!

Since Finland is also in the northern Europe, I feel like I can relate to the Finns and their way of life in a way. I have a huge crush on Helsinki, I instantly fell in love with the city when I visited it and have been thinking about going back ever since, so no wonder that Helsinki will be the first stop!

The local trendsetter Martina M tells me that Helsinki is growing in design and fashion all the time. And when you check out the city’s leading streetstyle blog hel-looks.com you really feel the cool quirky vibe of this fashion hotspot. Martina tells me that ‘Streetstyle in Helsinki is very mixed, you have both the fancier dressed people, the vintage lovers and the trend-followers.’ And I can tell from experience that this is something my hometown Riga lacks.

The city is also home for some amazigly talented designers, such as R/H, Minna Parikka, Daniel Palillo, Ivana Helsinki & Samuji to name a few. Helsinki is filled with outstanding boutiques and amazing thrift shops, the Finns are very concious about nature and numeurous local designers are eco-friendly putting nature & environment first.

Ivana Helsinki AW 2014 2015 ‘This is for you gran’ collection

I really admire Martinas unique stlye and if you take a look at her blog, you can find even more stylish looks and inspirig pictures.




I remember wandering around the streets of Helsinki, surrounded by cool shops and fashion-forward people. I remember feeling inspired by everything - the culture, the language, the weather, the architecture. And so I fell in love with the city and I felt it love me back. Just thinking about it makes me want to go back there. And one day I will.

Writer’s block

I’ve been gone, I’ve been lost. I haven’t given my all to this blog, but it seemed like I had lost some creative gene in my body. And I don’t want that to happen again, so this post is like a promise, like a reminder to myself to keep going. During this dark time of mine, I had a lot of second thoughts about this blog and blogging in general. But finally I realised, that I have been doing this since I was sixteen and it’s made me the person I am today. And I don’t feel like giving that part of myself away. And while I did some thinking, I realised where I got lost. It was when I started running for followers and blog stats and everything that comes with it.
So I’ve changed things. I finally changed my blogging platform and simplified everything quite a bit. And I don’t care how many people will read this, all I care about is that posting this makes me happier. And that’s exactly what I’ve missed.

These photos were actually taken about a month ago, but I finally have it in me to post this look, so I hope you’ll enjoy it.

Summer’s here & the heat is on! I usually find it hard not to lose your personal style during these hot months when you’re forced to wear shorts and flip fops. I really love outerwear & layering, so it’s understandable that summer is not my favourite season. In this post I wanted to show my new amazing cotton blend jacket from sammydress.com which is very lightweight and ideal for summer. I can already see that it’s going to be an essential item in my wardrobe this season.


I recently discovered  Sammydress which is an amazing online fashion store. The clothes are really unique and the prices blew my mind, plus they’ve got a lot of items on sale, which is great. I really recommend it, I can say that I will be ordering a lot of stuff from there from now on, just need to wait for the next paycheck.

Alexander Wang x H&M


I know that we’re all anticipating for summer to finally start, but what if I told you that there is something that would make you want November to come faster? What if that ‘something’ would be H&M partnering up with Alexander Wang? How would that sound for you?
During an event at the Coachella Music Festival, in California, USA, H&M announced that their next designer collaboration will be with Alexander Wang. This partnership marks the first time that an American designer teams up with H&M on the much anticipated designer collaboration.

The New York based Fashion Designer’s Alexander Wang’s esthetic is a reflection on contrasts, blending the refined and the imperfect. His collections have an unprecious outlook on fashion, and always reflect a sense of ease.
The Alexander Wang x H&M collection will feature apparel and accessories for women and men. The designer will propose a new take on the lifestyle product offering that goes beyond fashion.  The full collection will be available in 250 H&M stores worldwide, including Riga.


I’m sure we’ll have to start saving money soon, ‘cause this will be a unique shopping experience. Thank you H&M!

Consumed by sunshine


You can call me lazy & you can call me boring, but I’ve decided to post my outfit looks as well. So we’ve dumped our winter outerwear & we’ve turned our clocks forward, but the most important thing is that spring is here & it’s staying, at least I hope so.


I used an iPad case with bike print as a clutch bag, I think it’s a very cool solution of when you don’t want to carry your bag with you & all you need is your keys & your phone. Plus, since I forgot my sunglasses and the sun seems to be very aggressive these days, I used it for that as well, very multifunctional if you ask me.

Bai:doo : A nice place


It’s been a while since all the holidays have passed and since the celebration season ended. But it wont take long until new ones will come our way & before you know it, birthdays, anniversaries, parties and graduations will take over your organizer and the never-aging question of ‘what to wear?’ will pop up on your mind again. But if you’re above the average fashion consumer with an eye set out for that special something & appreciate quality then this article might be just for you!

Recently I visited Bai:doo which is this cozy workshop/boutique in Riga owned by designer Baiba Tolpežņikova and over tea we discussed her recently established business & fashion in general. Baiba’s clients are mostly women who highly appreciate quality & original design. Bai:doo is both  feminine & classical, but always with a twist and a dreamy aftertaste. ‘I like my clothes to have a fairytale feeling to them,' says Baiba. 'It may sound very cliche, but I get my ideas from my dreams. I see the clothes in my dreams and then recreate them.’ Although her target audience & clientele is mostly women, Baiba sometimes designs for men as well.


Baiba’s approach to work and her clients could be described as intuitive. ‘Clients come with their own vision of what they imagine and the desirable effect. The minute I get to know the the client, understand the clients background and personal style, everything just evolves naturally.' She always tries to find a healthy balance between what the client wants and her own esthetic 'It’s important not to lose yourself in your work. In the end you’re the designer, not just a tailor.


Bai:doo was officially opened on October 30th with a fashion show in the old town. ‘Right now I’m still just starting out but I have a distinct vision of what I want to do with my career.' In a few years she would like to have her own clothing line, to produce & sell ready-to-wear garments, maybe even export abroad.
When I ask her about the local street fashion, she points out that women in Latvia tend to look over-dressed. ‘I don’t think that you have to make every day a celebration, but you have to be well groomed and comfortable.’ She adds that for celebrations it’s great to make specially tailored garments.


And if you’re looking for that special something with a fairytale feeling, then visit Baiba @ Bai:doo in Riga, Avotu street 23.
