Hel-looks is by and far always my favorite. I've learned so much about Helsinki via hel-looks too just picking up tidbits along the way. It's awesome.

It's been years since I follow hel looks and I could never warm up to it , it's 'vintage shopping marathon' nightmare, I hate being mean but most of the people featured just look like they're wearing a bunch of rags for the sake of coming off as eccentric, with next to zero attention to actual detail.. which completely defeats the purpose of a great vintage piece imo, it's about finding items with a texture/color/embroidery/print/whathaveyou that isn't being produced anymore (at least not in the same quality), hence the thrill of it all. Picking up some mustard shirt big enough so that the shoulder stitching goes near your elbows, with a missing button and not caring about repairing it, styling it a bit into your expectations or how you envision the piece into your style and thinking you're just going to stand out pairing it with a pair of trousers with Hawaiian prints from the same store and hipster glasses with neon frames? it's kind of lazy and not at all creative for me.

This isn't just exclusive to hel looks though, I know it's global and I know sometimes it's refreshing to see people not caring enough instead of caring too much (blogger style) but, at the end of the day, how different both extremes really are from one another?

Sorry if that sounds dense, it's been on my mind for years and I'm bored enough to put it into words today.

I've been following it since I was a high schooler in the middle of nowhere -back then I thought it was really crazazy, so I guess I am just partial to it for sentimental reasons,

Oh, there's definitely something about that site that makes you follow it, whether for love or aversion, plain interest or even nostalgia (which would be my case too, I think this is one of the old-school streetstyle blogs that's been continually providing material without a drastic change of direction). Sorry if I sounded like I trying to contrast your post, I wasn't!, just saw the pics, got me thinking and ranted away!

I am kinda torn myself when it comes to Hel-Looks. Personally I would never ever dress myself like that but it matches with the whole city of Helsinki I think. I love being in both cities, Stockholm and Helsinki, but when it comes to streetstyle I am much more on the Swedish side

Here some recent Stockholm styles:
(not too much likes for the looks from my side but these were taken at Stockholm fashion week so...)
