Eddy Anemian


ZARA skirt
BALENCIAGA 'Padlock mini' bag
JIMMY CHOO ‘Turner’ boots 

Following in the footprints of the ‘what-I-wors’ over London fashion week. For a casual Sunday, I got dressed in a deconstructed denim jacket by Eddy Anemian, winner of this year's H&M Design Award. This time last October I was phasing the collaboration with Minju Kim, the collection that sold out in a day, although it flew under the radar for most of us. But, this year, let’s be more organized and prepare to shop the collection in selected H&M stores 23.10.

Illustrated leather


For fall, firm favorite McQ by Alexander McQueen has teamed up with Japanese manga artist Yoshiyasu Tamura for a collection of punchy, black and white, comic strip inspired pieces. The collaboration offers a whole series of all-over manga prints, but a marriage of a classic biker and illustrated bad-girl patches convinced me that there is still room for another leather jacket in my wardrobe. This one will for sure not be outplayed any time soon, come what may swanky new leathers. So, to not look too much like I’m about to ride off, the prettiest satin peplum on the market and, wait for it, the most perfect shoe man ever made; Let’s finally welcome the legendary ‘So Kate.’ My feet are crying bloody, but very happy tears.

Oh the melancholy

PRADA glasses

I'm suffering from a little something that could only be described as a post-wedding-depression. Last Saturday we celebrated my sisters beautiful wedding which could not have gone better! More on that later, but I have to admit the stress of running on a combined fashion week and Maid of Honor schedule has left me with a blank mind, although my head is filled with nothing but great memories. So, what now? I did not manage to talk myself into joining the Honeymoon, so instead I think a major blog catch up would be a good place to start.

Spot on stains

Lately, I’ve been finding an unusual amount of satisfaction in something as simple as a red lipstick. You all know that I can’t/don’t want to change my hair around too much, so alternative vanity pick-ups it is. And so a new category is born here on 5 inch and up, where I’ll be sharing my favorite beauty products ever now and then. Hope you like it!

Live in Levi's

A few weeks ago, I visited New York with Levi’s for the launch of their new ‘Live in Levis’ campaign. After a day trip to Coney Island we sat down in the middle of Manhattan for their private Haim gig, entry ticket? Just wear your Levi’s! A cool trip to an even cooler city, makes me wish I was at NYFW this season! Oh well there is always next year.

At home with Trendi magazine

My fall feature in Finnish magazine, Trendi, is now out! We shot some of my favorite seasonal trends and pieces in my new Helsinki flat. Still working on the decor as you can tell... But I’m promising a home feature soon. Pick a copy if you are in Finland for more.

Marble haven


Rain for the week, meh, bring it. I’m shielded by the coolest leather of the season, by All Saints, of course. My favorite leather go-to brand has a sleeker approach this season and I’m loving every inch of it. However, my floordrobe situation is not... time to switch out the stud-heavy bikers, as my leather jacket collection takes up an embarrassing large chunk of my closet. Diving into my favorite combo, dressy tailoring and leather, ah my sartorial mind in in full zen. Festive? Yes, but you’re never too overdressed when your backdrop looks like an angel castle.
