Favorite Hues

Favorite Hues
I guess one of the most style-defining questions one can ask herself is what did I always like? These things are usually the best reflection of your aesthetic essence. I have tried nearly all possible shades and textures for my manicure and pedicure (Liar! You've never tried hot pink and nacre!), but I keep coming back to this happy quartet again and again.

Black Friday List

Black Friday List

I am guilty of spending all my money on clothes and never caring about the importance of accessories. Meanwhile, the classics (by classics I usually mean Chanel) keep telling us that a strategically placed brooch or a pair of statement earrings can reinvent the outfit in an instance. Time to invest in timeless accessories!

Le Charme Discret de la Bourgeoisie


A smoking dress is on my mind. Although this piece from the Kooples is perfect, it's just a bit overpriced for me, and the budget version is out of stock (damn shoppers!). 
Wouldn't be perfect to slip in to a very private party like this?  
The clutch is... dah!.. YSL; the leather sandals are Nasty Gal

La Chambre Bleue

I'm slightly obsessed with sleeping lately. All of us has a weak spot - this absolute need one cannot do without. For some it's food, for others - staying warm... For me, the biggest discomfort in life is sleep deprivation. Here is perfect good-night rest with

M for Maison Martin Margiela

I don't care about all the buzz around Margiela's boots with the transparent heel, 'cause my heart very solidly belongs to this conceptual pair. Of course, it took a while to wait for the prices on eBay to calm down after the collection's debut. On the other hand, I love making purchases that are time-prooved. And voila, here I am - from the awkward angle,  in happy black again!

The Turkey Question

Let me tell you my story. I'm Russian and naturally prefer fur - it's just hard to imagine a cozier way to survive wintertime! But here is a dilemma: I cant' wear natural fur. Yes, yes, I know, if I care so much about animals, what's up with this cashmere sweater and a leather purse, miss Hypocrisy, right? True, but somehow a fur coat looks too much as an actual bunny to me. Go figure! 

I actually don't advocate for giving up the natural fur, or else. I'm raising an entirely different topic here: the artificial fur jackets look sad. They don't hold the shape right, they don't live for long and they don't feel nice against the skin. Oh well... 
Most of the fur jackets I've tried so far make me look like a really angry chicken or - lets be holiday-appropriate - a turkey! I don't want to look like a turkey, do I? So, the search to be continued...  

While overwhelmed with sadness, shouldn't we still give our applauds to these marvelous creatures on the top of the page?


Give it to meeh!
