Лучистые образы Наталии Гончаровой

A week ago I attended to a wonderful and very new event. I was invited to art gallery exhibition opening in Tropinin Museum. Tropinin  (wiki link if you want to know more) is a very famous Russian  painter mostly focused on portraits made around Pushkin age (he most famous Russian writer here, yes even more known than Tolstoy, Dostoevsky, Chekhov). He is the most known to people close to me (I personally asked and showed images) is Pushkin portrait seen by all of Russian people in school. But the new exhibition was not dedicated to Tropinin but to Nataliya Goncharova (wiki link). I was very impressed with her story as I didn't know much about her art before and couldn't wait to see it. Needless to say I never regretted. The art was even better in person than in the internet (obvious effect of seeing actual painting) and it was wider than I ever wanted. The exhibition will be opened till October 17th. If you happen to be in Moscow or you live here make sure to check it.
 My outfit for the event is pretty simple. I wore a navy dress with red bag and beige/red shoes and a big statement bracelet. It was a little cold that day so I took a jacket with me also, it's also navy.

And here are the photos I took during the event:
 Violin sounds made the exhibition even more striking. 
 The opening talk.
And some of the art from the exhibition:



My very fave painting which is a costume sketch.

RU: Неделю назад я посетила замечательное и новое для меня событие. Я была приглашена на открытие выставки в музе Тропинина. Тропинин (wiki link если вам интересно узнать больше) знаменитый русский художник, рисовавший в основном портреты во времена Пушкина.  Его самая известная работа, по крайней мере среди моего окружения, - тот самый портет Пушкина из учебника литературы. Но выставка, открытие которой мне довелось посетить, посвящена не Тропинину, а Наталии Гончаровой (wiki link). Я была так впечатлена её историей, так как ранее я знала о ней не так много, что никак не могла дождаться открытия. И конечно же я не пожалела. Её работы в жизни оказались даже лучше, чем просто изображения в сети (очевидный эффект реального присутствия рядом с произведением искусства), а сама выставка оказалась больше, чем я могла ожидать. Выставка открыта до 17 октября. Если вам доведется оказаться в Москве в это время или живете в нашем замечательном городе, обязательно посетите эту выставку "Лучистые образы Наталии Гончаровой" 

I was wearing:
Uniqlo dress
Topshop bag
Marc by Marc Jacobs shoes
Gap jacket

Dress that homecoming dresses review

How about some more inspiration today? I don't know how about you but I am totally into it. Today I want to share wth you some very pretty dresses. I don't really feel like posting my own outfit right now so I'm just posting what I am currently interested in or feel inspired by. As I'm drinking my coffee wearing oversized tee I ca't think up anything better than some formal wear. To share some of my current loves from online shops I teamed up with one of them - absolutely splendid Dressthat. Also do you like the title? It's so catchy and you take no time in remembering their name which can be a little tricky if you forgotten to add the shop to fave and no trying to find it in the middle of very similar names. I actually feel a little emotional towards this title. So good!
Anyway, today I want to share my faves from the category on their shop and this category is called   Cheap Homecoming Dresses. It's a great option to share my thoughts on as it's a homecoming season here in Russia. Here are my top three choices which I found not thinking twice about choosing. Very nice options indeed.
 Gorgeous A-line High-neck Sash Chiffon Homecoming Dress

 This navy lace here looks very natural for my country and resembles the Gzhel pattern. I find it a lovely add to my favorite silhouette and charming big tulle skirt.
 Mini Chiffon Lace Sashes Short Homecoming Dress

 This little bow is adorable! I love it so much! In fact it reminds of a dress I bought with mom not long ago (and still waiting for t to be posted on my blog - I promise it will be very soon) but with laced details added it looks very formal and makes me immediately think of homecoming... oh stop That's a homecoming dress indeed. Great option!
 Vintage A-Line V-neck Knee-Length Black Lace Homecoming Dress
Vintage A-Line V-neck Knee-Length Black Lace Homecoming Dress

Black dress, little black dresses are superb and this one is a fine example of it. I'd say it's a great investment to your closet as it is versatile and pretty. Complementing almost each and every body type depending on accessory it will more or less formal. What a fine dress indeed!

Which dress is your favorite? Do you have homecoming soon (it's a homecoming season after all)? Let me know what you think and don't forget to check the shop - I promise they have a lot more than just those three gorg.

Mountain climb. Nexus

Hello!
We couldn't leave without walking on a mountain. The chance is just too tempting! And it worth it. It was very hot, the road is not really supposed to be walked (normally people take a buggy to get there) but we did it. The reward were two the most breathtaking dolmens we seen during the trip. We even took some time to relax and think near them. They are so ancient and wise. Also the views where charming.
I wore super simple outfit, I actually can't really call it an ootd for real. But the way I styled my awesome shorts from Zaful makes me proud. A scarf transformed into a belt - cute, right? Also if you are interested in Zaful and want to know more about them - please check one of latest post here.




And to finish off the post here are the sights (actually the reason I posted this anyway):








  

I was wearing:
c/o Zaful shorts (get the same here)
Nike cap and sneakers
Mango top (very old)
c/o Wearshare bracelets

 

Have a nice day,
Lyosha

Get me some Banggood watches

Recently my beloved smart watch died. As much as it is disappointing and not comfortable (I feel odd without watch) it's always great to have a fresh start. I'm not one of those people who has millions of watch practically because I tend to wear them 24/7 so changing is not my thing. Mostly I take my watch off only if my outfit forces me to which  is fairly very seldom. So Have to pick it carefully. Also I don't always look through only items I would really buy. For example I don't see myself without full turn sports smart watch. No heart rate monitor - no watch. But as much as I love functional side of watch I do appreciate style a lot as well. That's why I want to share with you a wishlist or a list of pretty watch I found on Banggood. Because after all why not.
The first option is the one I actually considered buying - it looks perfect for me and does everything I need watch to be doing and even a little more. Sounds like a dream? It actually is because the prices is very likable. he only reason why I didn't get them is because they are a little too big for me - no issue for most of people but my wrists are too tiny for unisex options.

But putting actual 'smart' watches aside there are tons of wonderful and very cheap watch options of Banggood. After all sometimes you forget to charge your smart watch and you feel like having some watches on your wrist. This is a very stylish alternative.
Classic ladies watch. I like the sparkles and bright colors (pink is not the only option).
I love men style watches. These are brutal enough but the size makes them unisex. I also like how the numbers are distributed here - so pretty!
Talking about watch display the other option is unique. Touch screen led watch. Perfect as a substitute for smart watch - I got used to actually touch the screen in order to see the time... even on regular watch. Oh and they are waterproof which is a huge pro for me.
The last but not least watch I loved. Regular, everyday and even a little sporty LED watch. They come in various colors and actually I might even get several of them is different colors to match any outfit I might think of. 

What do you think about watches? What d you think about Banggood? No matter what you want to tell me - drop me a line, I can't wait to read your thoughts.

Have a nice day,
Lyosha

Pshada walk

As I promised today I'm posting my Pshada trip which scored practically the same amount of joy as river Zhane (well, may be even more because it was our first impression outside Gelendzhik town). It is also a mountain river but the scenery is completely different from Zhane. So beautiful.
 I've chosen wide light pants because of snakes reported (however after the trip I wish I wore something different because my pants where either wet or not comfortable because of all the water we had to pass through). Wide and short top s perfect for super hot days, cap is a necessity because it was very-very hot outside.


 And a little bit of beautiful sights everywhere:















 A little funny extra of my outfit (taken on our way back home):

I was wearing:

Top from Dolls Kill shop
c/o Zabegina scarf
pants vintage thrifted
shoes: Nike and flip flops bought in Geledzhik
 

Have a nice day,
Lyosha
