Mixing styles, is about having fun discovering outfits that reflect you. It’s supposed to be personal and uniquely you. Find a style that speaks to you and mix it with another style that gives a perfect look. In today’s outfit I mixed lace and leather, feminine and masculine. The idea of wearing leather on a hot summer’s day sounds about as delightful as sporting an open-back dress in the dead of winter. Unfortunately, summer almost finished… Hello, Autumn!

Today’s post is about country style chic. 🙂 History always likes to repeat itself in everything and fashion is something that the younger generation wants to constantly experiment with and they like to try the trends of the older generation. Fashion world is constantly replacing newer clothes in volumes and proportions. Such an example is the return of the flared pants. Fitted from the top and flared at the bottom is the trademark of these pants. They sometimes don’t look decent but if accompanied with gorgeous pieces and styled perfectly you can look polished.

Midi Skirts

In the previous post we spoke about details and personal style. Today, there will be a look to the fashion history. We will come back to 70s and 90s, and it is all about combining two different epochs.

The MIDI skirt was a popular length in the 1940s, a fashion decade known for its elegance and grace, and it is characterized by its length, which can reach anywhere from just below the knee to mid-calf. By the ’60s, the MIDI was out, replaced by the more revealing and progressive MINI skirt. After this breath of freedom, however, came the fated year of 1970, and with it, year of MIDI again.

People generally recognize you by your face, the eyeglasses you choose to wear are a very real part of your identity. Whether you want to appear sophisticated, fun-loving, youthful, conservative or style-conscious, the right eye-wear can help you shape how you are perceived. And if you choose to wear only one pair of eyeglasses for everything you do, that says something about you, too! Read more…

Off-the-Shoulder

2h3a4931-1

The current off-the-shoulder trend is one of the hottest looks this season and there’s no reason why everyone shouldn’t join in. The off-the-shoulder design can be found in tops or in dresses, making it endlessly versatile and extremely popular. It is the best way to combine sexiness with sophistication. In today’s outfit I am demonstrating a cute and relaxed style here, wearing the classic blue on a loose fitting off the shoulder dress from Zara. I love the simplicity of this off-the-shoulder style.

Espadrilles

If you were to take a look inside your favorite blogger’s closet, I guarantee you’d find a pair of covetable espadrilles. The summery shoe trend is the perfect solution for a casual, comfortable and stylish look. Plus, since almost every blogger owns a pair, there is endless outfit inspiration for you to try the trend yourself! It’s not difficult to understand why, they are unbelievably comfortable, surprisingly stylish and look great with jeans,  pants, skirts and dresses.

Picnic in Lilac Time

Summer is a perfect time to have picnics in parks or neighborhood area. Today, I want to share with you my emotions and outfit of this sunny picnic. Sitting there on the grass, we got to enjoy an interesting assortment of cheese, sandwiches, fruits and lots of chocolates. Of course, a sparkling cider always helps improving the experience :). I absolutely love the most amazing fruity and refreshing taste of it, with a hint of apples, pears and honeysuckle.

Happy Monday, Everyone! Today, I want to share with you a few images of one of my favourite dresses at the moment. I found this pearl dream to wear! So much perfection concentrated in one little dress: the lace, the colour, the fit and length… I love it! In fact, I find myself so obsessed I keep inventing ways I can downplay it in different outfits. So far, heels and aviator jacket seem to be the winning combination, but I am committed to coming up with more. Read more…

Alpha Aviator

The Aviator Parka or Bomber Jacket is an icon of enduring style. Since its inception a century ago, it has clothed the backs of war time fighter pilots, movie stars and A-list footballers. As with most menswear classics, the aviator parka / bomber jacket started life as a military jacket. With the introduction of air combat during WWII, pilots required jackets that could be worn in cramped cockpits at high altitude. Since then, the aviator / bomber jacket has gained popularity among youth subcultures like much of the military wear that came before it. Read more…

Tulip Festival

2H3A3421

Hello Everyone! How is your weekend going so far? Today, I would like to present you a very casual and chic outfit which is great for travelling with a kid . Yesterday, we spent a lovely day on Ottawa Tulip Festival. The celebration founded on international friendship with the 1945 presentation of 100,000 tulip bulbs from Princess Juliana of the Netherlands to Ottawa, Canada’s capital, given in appreciation of the safe haven that members of Holland’s exiled royal family received during World War II in Ottawa and in recognition of the role which Canadian troops played in the liberation of the Netherlands.

Pinky Vibes

2H3A3357

Hello Everyone! It seems that spring is finally here in Montreal. In need of a little pink inspiration — I wanted to create a spring look based on a pale pink colour.

Pink is a hue traditionally associated with all things “girly.” For some reason (call it instinct; call it social conditioning), a lot of women, including myself, are simply drawn to the Barbie shade. Pink puts me in a gleeful mood and brings out the daintier side of my personality, and I must say, pink fashion gets me in a dreamy, almost nostalgic state of mind. Read more…

Soul Revolution

It is hard to find the balance in life which is key to everything; to live in harmony with yourself and confidence in the future. Every day we are balancing on the precipice ready to break at any moment and at that very moment it is so important to have someone who will always support and  will tell you the right way… and if there is no one to be there for you, we just fall down nowhere. What helps you to stay afloat? What feeds your ideas and goals every day and makes you keep going forward? Certainly, Love. Of course, Family and Friends, that make your life filled with emotions; and yet we are encouraged by the love of self-esteem and development. Read more…

Rock it!

2H3A3182

I want to dispel the myth that rock and gothic style in fashion as a rule, is always gloomy and supported by the representatives of the same name subculture. Their clothing is dark, and consists of trousers, shirts, corsets and magnificent skirts. They wear silver skull and crosses around the neck. From this style emanates a certain tenderness and world beyond the grave, as members of society prefer gothic pale complexion framed by dark hair, black lips, nails and eyeliner. And this way of supporting both girls and boys. Thus, according to the majority, gothic clothing – it is a certain way to express your feelings and dark thoughts.  Read more…

Flared jeans are back in style! Seriously, flares are just about the most exciting thing to happen to denim since the advent of skinny jeans. In fact, ’70-s references abound this season, and while flares are obviously one of those trends -a modern twist.

I love a lot skinny jeans but after wearing them so often for the past few years, I would like to add something different to my denim style. Read more…

Sneakers – fashion trend

Sneakers – a silver line between heels and flat shoes. Unless you have been living under a rock for the past year, you are probably aware of everyone’s latest fashion obsession: THE SNEAKERS! Why? Because fashion today is about having fun, looking chic and sophisticated rather than too polished. Whether dressing them up or down, wearing them to run errands or to hop from one fitness class to the next, there are a million ways to style your sneakers. Sneakers aren’t just for the gym anymore, but rather a cool, low-maintenance addition to an otherwise style-minded outfit.

Black & White is always right

Karl Lagerfeld once said: ”Black and White always looks modern, whatever that word means.” The perfection of high contrast looks that is hard to put in words but is chic as soon as we see it. Maybe you prefer not to think about matching your clothes or maybe you are all about minimalist neutrals but for some women — colour simply isn’t that appealing. If that describes you, there’s a chance that black and white outfits make up the bulk of your wardrobe. Read more…

Canadian winter can be tough, especially, when -20C outside it is not a limit! Montreal island is surrounded by water, and it is extremely cold because of the freezing wind and humidity. The temperatures may feel colder than the actual temperature. If the weather forecast prognosis -16C with windchill you may feel it as -29C.

In such weather you want to feel warm and protected from cold and piercing wind. In today’s outfit I am wearing long wool coat that covers me from such wind. You might see that details make the whole difference of an outfit! Read more…

Happy New Year 2016, Everyone! 🙂 The very first post on my blog in this year, I would like to start with such cozy warm look. Winter, finally, came to Canada, and we were blessed to have such a great weather for holidays! I love these first snowing days when the snow is so white, so bright and so fresh. You go out, and you do not have enough breathe in this fresh air. You are in wonderland… at this time of a year everyone believes in miracles.

Winters in Canada are cold but it does not mean that your outfit should be unflattering and boring, right?  In fact, in the cold season you have even more options to style your looks. I find that getting dressed has never been easier than nowadays. Read more…

City Girl

I consider myself as a typical city girl. The conditions of a big city life drove a modern woman into the rigid framework – she needs to be a valuable employee, a loving wife, a good housewife, a perfect mother and she still needs to look the best. It is not surprising that in order to survive and to do everything in a mad megalopolis, lady sometimes unconsciously turns into a kind of “universal soldier”. It is well-known fact that driving a car makes your life easier. Honestly, it completely changed my life! Besides of the comfort, it brings you to the necessity of changing your schedule and gives a new mode of a life. You think about going early in order not to be stuck in a traffic, it helps you to stay more focused on the details and things you do. At the same time, you do not depend on public transport and do not bother yourself about other people there which I find awesome!  Read more…

It’s all about hat

A hat can make or break an outfit. Hats are like love. For a long time I thought that hats are not for me, my face is square and hair is too short for it. I will assure you, there is a hat out there for everyone… and once you find it, you’ll know.

Yes, wearing a hat is eccentric, and when you’re wearing one – people will talk about you. I’ve become attracted to hats for the same reason, and now I am rarely spotted without the cap on my head. Read more…

Hello guys, hope your week is going great. 🙂 November almost finished and we are getting closer to the cold season but when it’s sunny outside you never know what to wear because it looks warm. Today I had 2 outfits in 1.  I did not plan it, honestly. 🙂 The sun was shining and it was warm and nice but as soon as sun went behind the clouds, the temperature dropped below 5 degrees right away. That is why today I will show you one look with two different jackets. Read more…

Baseball Fan

Taking a walk around the neighbourhood in search of a suitable place for my new outfit, we found a baseball field with the beautiful painted wall. Being Russian, in a way means being a soccer fan (football – how we call it in Europe) or hockey fan. Baseball is not a common game for us, but for North Americans it is. As a sportive person and a mom of a 3 y.o. boy, I am thinking already about his sport future. Read more…

”Mocha – Coffee with hot chocolate. Mocha – is melancholy. Thick and viscous. But even there the milk mocha. And the sweetness, the one that you will not find in espresso, for example. Her and feel at once, and each time did not really understand why it was ordered. Only then you remember, at the very moment when it becomes sweet.” Max Frye Read more…
