in search of new year's dress

Last weekend I went for one day trip to Helsinki with my friends just for fun. Since I had only about one hundred euro with me I had only one aim-to buy some dress for New years party. So I was lucky enough to find very nice and versatile dress by Selected that was appropriate for my low budget. The dress is quite simple but some bold hairstyle can create a great look.I already have an integral image in my head how I want to look like for NY party-I also made a sketch of it like I do sometimes(I'll show you some of my ugly sketshes and real photos of my outfits later). I must say that my country is the only country where NY is celebrated more than Christmas-all that you do for Christmas we do for NY. During the Soviet Union our government was extremely atheistic and it was trying to exterminate all traditions and holidays that refered to religion. So here we are- NY is much more important in Russia than Christmas.By the way as Russia is orthodox we have Christmas only on the 7th of January that I'm going to celebrate with my family and tasty meals. All of you have great days now and we are only preparing for the upcoming holidays. Anyway I wish you a MERRY CHRISTMAS, my catholic fellows!:) Have a great time!
Here are some photos from Helsinki. We were so tired after quite difficult travelling and shopping that we have taken just few photos at the cafe in Stockmann.
