This is a new blog that I've created - it's not just going to be about streetstyle in Russia or whatever, but also about reviewing shows, trends, life, whatever - it's still connected to fashion and there will still be street style. So add me on that!

Это новый блог, который я созадала. Добавай меня, будь ласка ------ !!! Еще будет стрит стиль

I really liked them. I love how his shirt is buttoned up to the top - makes me kind of hungry.

Fatima in a Red Dress: Nevsky Prospects


This is Fatima. Hi Fatima. Your dress was very beautiful and bright and I could spot you from a mile away.

To Be in Love : Заглядение


Ahh it was getting dark out so it's a little blurry

I saw this couple on Nevsky - they were looking for their friends who were playing drums. He said they were Rastafarian, she said they weren't. They came all the way from Moscow, resembled a couple from a Bible coloring book page and they were beautiful.

Winter Flash Back - Natasha and Katya


Well, winter is the worst season in the whole entire world and this is the worst street in all of Petersburg (the street to university). But Natasha and Katya manage to make everything around them beautiful. Remember Natasha in August?

Fresh Dvor

Everything is very simple and fresh and she looks great.

The Sweets : Nevsky Prospects

These girls were very sweet! Although this is not necessarily how they normally dress, I loved the colors and the shoes.

Если вы видите это - вы такие классные и красивые девушки!

Who has a longer ponytail?   - New Blog: Russian street style, interviews, and fashion reviews 

This girl in this picture is my wonderful, stunning friend, Ava. She is not a Russian girl ("a Russian girl would never be seen in public like this" - she said it, not me!). Jokes aside, although she looks like an angel right out of a Michelangelo painting - the focus of this picture is not her. Obviously, it is the man with the ponytail! What can I say? I have a strange obsession with the turtleneck and jacket combo. Also, I like the blazer over the mustard yellow t-shirt, gold chain outfit. Please tell me I'm not the only one...

Lady in Waiting : Moscow

I wouldn't say this woman's outfit is a new edgy development in Russian fashion. It's all very simple and it looks rather nice and clean. But what gets me always: is the heels. I'm always perplexed in how the girls here can walk on 5 inch heels all day. And...most of them can do it well, not with that horrible Quazi Motto *clonk clonk* posture. Some of my Russian friends tell me that they bring an extra pair of flats around with them so they don't get tired.  One time I saw a girl in five inch heels and her ankles were bleeding, a lot. What's that saying about beauty and pain? Could you walk in these heels all day?

Tash Face: Part 2

Why do I love Natasha? Who knows, maybe it's the fact that we might be two long lost sisters from a trampled little village twenty miles west of Lviv, Ukraine? No, it's because even when she thinks she looks tired and overworked and bad, she still manages to look nothing short than beautiful. Ok, that's my Ode to Tash. I might shed a tear.

Tousled Androgy Last Stop Moscow

Everything was beautiful about this girl -  she had an androgynous flair but her lips were dark red. Even though it is getting hotter in Moscow, many of the girls here will not let their bare skin show on their feet even though in America, the girls break out the sandals the moment is hits 50 degrees. Usually they wear very dark tan tights or black nylons as their socks - sometimes it looks a little odd. Yet this girl pulled her whole outfit together with the textured nylons. I wanted to steal her jacket - take a look at the sleeves!

Tonya : Nevsky Prospects

The sky was gray - in fact, everything was gray in St. Petersburg that day. But then I saw Tonya waiting for the bus on Nevsky Prospect. A lot of clashing but smartly done - a very plushy effeminate look complimented by darker pieces - brigade buckled boots and a great jacket. Plus, she was very sweet.

Pretty Nicola

Nicola is an exchange student in St. Petersburg who came all the way from Australia. Imagine that flight?

An early morning angel who can make summer come early  - a crown of blond, a pattern mixer, a texture clasher, and a stunner.

Blue Jacket Moscow

Maybe you are sad, it's a little cold out and your boyfriend is twenty minutes late. But you have a dope jacket and are in Moscow. So smile.

Boris in Moscow!

This is Boris from Moscow. I spotted him in the wee hours of the morning as he was coming off the subway. I loved his jacket - he looked great, like he was straight out of medieval Novogorod! The next day I saw a man wearing a great outfit in a totally different part of Moscow - it was Boris!
