Hel-Looks Inspiration

February 12, 2009

It is really odd how I discovered this website. Originally, I wanted to do a Chloë Sevigny inspiration post; and whilst Googling images, I ran across one of my favorite blogs, The Clothes Horse. She had done a post about Chloe, but it was another one of her posts that caught my eye: one on Hel-Looks.

According to the site, Hel-Looks is “selected street fashion from Helsinki, the capital of Finland. The pictures are taken in the streets and clubs of Helsinki from July 2005 onwards”. Here are a few of my favorites:

Can I just side track for a second and say how the last girl has a striking resemblance to Pippi Longstocking? Long lost twins? I think so.

Seeing sites like these makes me want to start my own street fashion site, but then I remember I live in Orange County, CA suburbia and no one can think for themselves – expect for me and my people, naturally. Hee Hee. But, I even find myself being so self conscience about what I look like and what others will think and how I dress. This is beyond lame. I am just glad there are sites like Hel-Looks that promote individuality. It gives me hope and confidence.

    I totally forgot about Hel-Looks, that is a great site. I love the first look.

    I know what you mean about being self-conscious. When I lived in London I wore what I wanted but back in Seattle.. if I decide to wear tights with shorts, I get looks. Its kind of ridiculous.

    I lived in Scandinavia. They’re all that fashionable and it just seems to come naturally. It helps that there are a million shops selling those beautiful coats.

    Jealous.
