Remains of Today
Alisa lives in Finland, I really enjoy seeing her outfits in the snow covered trees and ground.
I've only been following Alisa's blog for a few months now, but already I love following her vintage inspired blog posts! Alisa posts great reviews on her outfits, whether it's her own lovely sewing creations or on her vintage and vintage inspired dresses, skirts etc and her blog photos are so beautiful.
I also follow Alisa's instragam account which is @alisavann
Please go and follow this lovely ladies blog and/or instagram account, if you love vintage style outfits and styling!
It was hard for me to decide the name of my blog. I listen to a lot of
music and I love especially Tim Burton's movies and their songs. So I
think that I was listening to Corpse Bride's "Remains of the Day" song
and thought that would be a great idea. It was taken, so I altered it to
be Remains of Today. So now it's kinda unique and weird and I like it!
Question: Please describe your blogging style?
I post pictures about my outfits, review clothing and sometimes there's
something about my cats. I also like to do these posts where I give
tips. About how to start a pin up wardrobe, how to buy vintage inspired
eyeglasses online or something like that. These are mainly for my
Finnish readers because in Finland there's not so many pin up bloggers
and the "scene" is not that big. My Finnish readers like to ask much
more questions than others, like what's a petticoat or how can you curl
without heat. So I'd say my blogging style is pretty simple. If you
don't like vintage/vintage inspired outfit photos, you'll get bored.
I took a gap year after high school and wanted to work because I was
bored with school. In Finland, it's hard to get a job without any
contacts, experience or education, so I didn't get a job for months. In
foreign movies they always just go to work at the nearest supermarket
after high school. But nope, that's not here. So I started a blog. The
only blogs I was reading back then was Miss Victory Violet's blog and
Curves to Kill. I adored their clothes and thought that maybe I should
show the world my fashion sense too.
Question: Describe your fashion sense/style?
I like colourful stuff. I like my style to be fun, not too serious.
Novelty prints, tropical prints and gingham are in my top three. Mostly I
wear swing dresses, but recently I have tried to get out of my comfort
zone and try wiggle dresses and jeans. Lipstick is a must, but having
the perfect pin up hair isn't. I like to pin curl but usually I just end
up brushing the curls to waves. Hair flowers and hair scarves are
pretty important too!
I like Miss Victory Violet, Miss Amy May and Junebugs and Georgia Peaches. My favourite Finnish blogs are vaaleanpunainenhaalari.blogspot.fi and http://myfeelings-only.blogspot.fi/ and http://missliidainez.blogspot.fi/.
Question: What can your readers/followers expect from you and your blog over the next 12 months?
I think my blog will stay basically the same. Just more outfits and more trying to get out of my comfort zone!
Remains of Today a little better, I know I have!
Thank-you so much Alisa for agreeing to take part if my interview blogger series! xo
Until next time!
