Shopping can be a stressful thing to do. Yesterday I spend few hours trying to find a nice skirt and pair of shorts for the summer time and after trying numerous version of both of them, I came out from them shop with just a one skirt (and headache). It is frustrating to try clothing when you think you know your size and then when you try them on, you notice the size is too small. And doing that in a changing room you share with ten other women (one big room, instead small cubicles) it was not nice at all... So not only did I underestimate my own size (I blame the different labels ;) ) but also doing that in the full packed changing room was not nice… When I got home, I was definitely not a happy bunny! Shopping should be fun!

Have you experienced something like this? How did you overcome the unhappiness it caused?

I like funny things (laugh is always good cure for almost everything) and when I saw a video from Haldin about what their clothing, I could not do anything else than laugh :) I really, really like it when I see that not everyone takes fashion seriously. 

Haldin is a design company set up by a Swedish dude and a Finnish lady and you can see from their website how they have included humour to their design by just reading the story of them. What else can you say when you see this: “The company was born from the crossing of paths of a handsome Swedish banker and a Finnish design student with beautiful toes.”

Their designs are full of prints and colours and it looks fun. This clothing is definitely not for serious people... ;) Here are few examples from their F/W 2013 collection. Unfortunately they have changed their internet page since I last visited it and their clothing does not have names anymore, which is a shame as the funny names were like a spot on to their designs.

In their special project collection they have a really funny shirt, which I would not have mind to have. I can only imagine myself plaiting the zebra tail when stressing about something... Would be a perfect stress toy :)
Wishing you a really nice and relaxing weekend... :)

Cheers for now,
Sanna



P.S. Maybe the onlineshopping could be an answer in here, like Zalando, Net-a-Porter... ;)
