Finnstyle.com is Basically Marimekko Central and They're Giving Away A Shopping Spree Today
I do one of three things when I need a pickmeup: 1) Drink coffee 2) Watch a cute animal video or, 3) Look at the Marimekko stuff on finnstyle.com (they're giving away four $100 sprees today). The site is home to tons of other Scandinavian wares (by iitala and Artek, for example), but its Marimekko selection is fairly epic and the kaleidoscope of prints—all bright, all cheery, all crazily, boldly graphic—gladdens me to no end. I truly have to use the somewhat hokey word "gladden" because you can't look at these prints and not feel instantly uplifted, hopeful and just… vibrant. This phenom is intensified when you put on the line's resplendent tunics and dresses—Marimekko held their first-ever runway show at NYFW last month and my three favorite looks are above; hopefully they'll show up on FinnStyle soon. For now, I'll content myself with the items below. Enter to win the shopping spree now; when you do; you'll be automatically entered to win our grand prize, a trip for two the Bahamas.
