Not so nice day I had today because of the spanish test that I think I have failed. We had +20 degrees outside so I was wearing this outfit to my university. While I was waiting for a bus I was feeling lots of weird looks on me. You bloggers have seen such boots like I have million times before but I'm sure that people that were staring at me today were thinking that I've cut my boots myself.
I took away my new dress from my tailor today and I like it very much though I payed for it quite a lot and I'm broked now.

Dress: ginatricot
Cardy: ginatricot
Leggins: Urban Outfitters
Shoes: Zara
Necklace: Paraphernalia
Bag: Uterque

ange ou demon-Links à la Mode

Today was a nice sunny day that I've spent with my beloved class-mates. I'm really a lucky person because I study with very special and nice guys. All photos are made at my university yard.I was feeling melancholy today because only one week of study with my dear group has left.I wanted my today's outfit to be very bright and girly because I had very cheerful mood this morning.

I purchased this vintage Ferragamo scarf with big flowers from Etsy and I'm so in love with it now!

Really upset

I was very busy and tired lately so I had no inspiration to post anything. The only thing that was cheering me up was a looking-for one interesting fashion event that had to take place this saturday. This event is called "Modny Desant"("Fashion landing") and it takes place twice a year. I think that it's one of the best events in my city because it's organizers always bring fresh designers and bold collections and you always can meet a lot of beautiful young people there and almost all my friends go there every time, so I can see others and show myself.And today I found out that it was canceled for this spring because of the financial crisis!!!I'm so upset now! I was preparing for it for a long time because I wanted to make a special outfit and now I know that all my efforts were for nothing. The only thing that makes me happy is that the organizer's are negotiating with Manish Arora about showing his collection on MD this autumn.If I'll be able to see his collection here in Saint-Petersburg I agree to wait for a long time.He is a person with outstanding imagination and he makes really magical collections,so I can call him one of my fave fashion designers.
P.S.This photo is from the last year's collection by Kosinus-Dj and fashion designer from Saint-Petesburg. In my opinion this character personifies global economic crisis- sharp-toothed, scary and all-absorbing.

Happy Birthday Princess!

Yesterday we were celebrating my friend's birthday.Her name is Yaroslava and she is a very beautiful high society girl so as a joke I call her princess sometimes. Too bad she lives in Switzerland now so I can't see her frequently though she is a close friend for me and I really love her.
We had a dinner with her family and then we went to one bar to drink some coctails. The restaurant where we were celebrating her BD with her family was very pompous and I realized that a person doesn't need expensive meals, champagne and presents for her/his BD to be happy- she needed just a BD cake and twenty candles but they haven't prepared them in that high-flown restaurant and she got them only at that plain bar!

Quite drunk-already at home.

My outfit was very classy(white silk blose with a bow, black skirt, retro style tights and black pumps(my fave and quite old Moschino pumps)) and I looked very appropriate at the restaurant but when we moved to the bar I looked quite weird for such place but i did't care because it was really a great and lovely evening.

P.S. May be this format of my blog is not very handy, but I changed it specially for this post because I think that these photos are so beautiful that you should see them in details.

Tips: How not to be like everyone else

Now we can see globalization clearly-if you visit lookbook you can see that it does not matter from what countries people are they look almost the same. We can blame internet or mass media or fashion magazines for it but it’s a fact and now it’s very precious to be special and unlike. So here are some tips that I think can be useful.

Try to abstract your mind from fashion magazines and blogs. (Yes, they are really interesting but they make such profound effect on your subconsciousness that you starting to copy outfits from them and it becomes difficult to show your own personality through your outfits. Besides that you can see that almost all fashion magazines show almost the same at one season. )

After this think about yourself and try to understand what kind of person you really are and find your own style that clearly shows your character.

Find a good tailor. (I’m sure that all of us have some ideas and dream about a dress or other clothes that they can’t find in any store. In this case tailor is a great helper because usually you can’t realize your ideas just because you don’t know how to sew. Another advantage of tailored clothes is that they fit perfectly.)

Wear DIY things.( when you make things with your own hands using your own ideas it’s almost impossible to meet someone wearing the same)

Buy unique or handmade things.( If you aren’t clever with your hands, Etsy is a great place to buy really unique and special accessories and clothes)

Buy vintage things and adapt them to your body.( It’s not a fresh idea but not all do this. Though it’s also a great way to stay unique.)

Try to find new ways of wearing your clothes(wear your skirt like a top, wear your t-shirts with prints inside out, wear a scarf like a belt and so on)

Don’t be afraid of experiments and don’t be afraid of being absurd. Only those people who don’t think about other’s opinion stick to our memory and become fashion icons.For example : Isabella Blow, Anna Piaggi, Daphne Guinness, Lady Gaga. At first people can laugh at your style but then they start to copy it.)

Find peculiar feature in your appearance and accentuate them. (Your specific features make you different from others. For example: if you have very pale skin-take care of it and be proud of it, if you are curvy- emphasize your shapes and feel yourself very feminine, if you have curly hair-don’t try to straighten them because curls are really nice!)

I hope that these tips will be helpful for you. Be yourself, be beautiful and be happy!

One of my favourite occupations is making DIY projects! I had many ideas lately and I realized some of them. The results were quite nice and I was thinking - why shouldn't I make my own line of handmade accessories?! So I made some bold headbands (Blair Waldorf would die for them!)and decided to sell them on Etsy-great place for all things handmade! All headbands are made in one copy so they are absolutely unique! You can buy them HERE.
