The weather is getting colder and the colors outside and on the blog are getting darker. I was a little worried about the Fall season since it is my first as a fashion blogger. So many things to figure out, main question being how to shoot in colder weather? Well, same as in Summer and Spring – you take your camera outside and you shoot. That being said, I only had an accident once so far. My camera fell down because of the strong wind. Fortunately it landed on the side and didn’t damage the lens. Only few scratches. Phew! But I am not taking any more chances and will be using a heavier tripod next time, avoiding windy days as much as  I can. read more

Witching hour

13-1

Am I an adventurous type? Well, if adventurous means summiting Elbrus or trying surfing, YES! Count me in. If, on the other hand, adventurous means buying bold lipstick… Not so much… This lipstick was completely out of my comfort zone, so, naturally, I bought it! As it turned out it wasn’t that scary after all. Keep reading for tips on how to apply dark colors (so it would look stylish rather than “Halloween makeup went wrong”) and to learn what other products I used for this make up. read more

Where my heart is

4

You might have noticed that I almost completely disappeared from the web and social media in the last month. It was because I was visiting my motherland – Russia, for a whole month. Which wasn’t even nearly enough, to tell you the truth. Although I did plan some blog work for that month and even considered collaborating with few local photographers for outfit posts, it didn’t exactly work out that way, as you can see. To clear the air though, it wasn’t because of my laziness. I don’t get to see my dear relatives and friends a lot, so every minute spent with them is precious. That’s why I put all my plans and blog posts on hold and enjoyed my time with family and friends. read more

the BASICS | Leather biker jacket

1

Leather jacket is one of my favorite pieces of clothing that I own. It took me awhile to invest into a really good one but once I did I never turned back. I remember owning a faux leather jacket from Forever 21 four/five years ago and I remember I kept wearing it again and again even after I’ve completely fallen out of love with it and after my preferences in clothing has changed. But I kept wearing it with jeans, dresses, heels, sneakers, etc. It just looked good with everything.

If you have an opportunity to buy a genuine leather jackets – that’s amazing, if not – there are always more than two options.
