Last night I spent a fun evening at the Ambassador of Finland's beautiful residence, which to be honest, wasn't really that humble... The event was the launch of Nokian by Julia Lundsten collection.
There were boots everywhere. Different colors, shapes and styles. I had no idea that the collection was so vast.
That is Julia herself on the left next to the Ambassador's lovely wife, Liisa. They are both wearing boots from the collection. If only you could see them better in the picture...
I absolutely love the photography in the campaign.
(Talking about photography I have to apologise for the picture quality... I don't like posting grainy, yellow pictures but I wasn't prepared to carry my flash around with me. Hence I decided that some of the pictures were better off as black & white.)
We were served some excellent Finnish goodies such as these tiny round pieces of rye bread with herring and quail's egg.
The dress code was "lounge suit"... Not a dress code I was familiar with so I had to do some googling just to make sure I wasn't going to show up in a casual outfit when everyone else was wearing a ball gown! I found a lot of different descriptions, all of them pretty vague. Like this one:
"Lounge suits are normal business suits, worn for semi-formal occasions with a shirt and tie. The equivalent for women is a skirt or trouser suit, cocktail dress or evening gown depending on the time of day and the occasion."
Hmmm... That doesn't rule out much for us women so I decided to take my chances and show up smart casual.
The Ambassador's house was beautiful inside and out. I'm glad I had the opportunity to visit it.
