Vintage Clothes Collectionary

I beleive you might notice a new banner on my left side of the blog. It's deducated to wonderful idea and a new project regarding what each blogger and fashion lover adores. Vintage clothes. The Vintage Clothes Collectionary. Constatly inspiring and making you feel different, new and a little old fashioned. Or may be a great deal for something that would definitely come back. Wanna know more? then read a great interview I have for you here:

What inspired The Collectionary into existence?

The Collectionary was created because we wanted to create a Dictionary of everything in the world that people collect. There are hundreds of e-commerce sites, but there is no dedicated place where you can learn about different items. Whether it's the history, facts, or unique attributes regarding a particular collectible or item, we want to give people a place to learn about the collectibles they love.


What made you coin it The Collectionary?

Collectionary comes from combining the words Collecti…

The essence of the image

Recently I enjoy the photography a lot even though now I have tons of shots and spend like gazillion time on sorting and thinking about the perfect shot. And as photography is a very important part of life for any blogger I'm offering you an easy read this Thursday.
Photography is the science of the human being, is a story of life, caught up in an instant. When picking up the camera, one is obliged to open in the object all the best which there is to reach, and even find more. The creation of photos carries an incredible responsibility that many cannot even comprehend. When you press the shutter button, you take the responsibility for this particular moment of reality that you decide to immortalize in frame. But how do you know if this moment is worthy of staying in eternity? Can you capture it correctly, retaining that unique fine line between reality and image, while respecting the laws of life and space? Will you be proud of your work later?
Today the humans’ life is hard to be…

Hair Styling and The Importance of Good Tools

Everybody knows I have short and extreme straight hair (call it blessing or not) but even I think a lot about work under my hair and exp I do so when I need to get my hair cut.

A bad workman always blames his tools? Well a bad hair stylist is one who fails to look after his (or her) tools of the trade. It’s a known fact that any clippers, whatever, brand or model, are only as good as the blades and it’s important that they are looked after. When looking to get your clipper blades sharpened here are some tips on seeking out a trust worthy clipper sharpening service:
1) Look for a reputable service and remember that, like always, when the price is too cheap there often is a catch.
2) It’s tempting to go for just a sharpening of blades but it’s best to opt for a full service. A full service includes a full strip down and cleaning of the clippers as well as sharpening since, often, water and dirt can build up in the clippers and cause rust and permanent damage.
3) Be sure that the clipper…

Moscow fashion week day 3

For me it was the last on MFW was charming and a little sad. I new this rush and my own story in fashion this season was over. 
But wonderful clothes helped me a lot. Charming Vemina collection which can be a no brainer for each lady when you want to look romantic and feminine or fill you with joy and fun with Gaudi and Instant production. The former played wonderfully with colours during the show. And the latter even had sand their show on! ADORE!



it wasn't easy in fact to shoot all of those photos of Gaudi & Instant Productions as model never stoped and felt more like dancing.


Always charming Liza Romanyuk's Vemina. For my look I've chosen something girly yet comfortable. I wanted comfort after FW rushes and to tell the truth felt a little odd on the outfits. It's had to keep up for more than 2 strait weeks with fashion week appropriate and yet appropriate and comfy for my work. yet I have managed!  oh and sorry for the night shots - that was necessary and we didn…

Moscow Fashion Week 2

Do you love fashion and new as much as I do? I believe so that's why I keep posting about new collections that inspire me for my own looks.
For my second day on Moscow Fashion Week (it was actually 4th overall but I had to skip 2 days for personal matters) and it was what I was looking for - pretty girly styles! I was so happy to to see a very simple casual looks. The shows put a smile on my face and made me feel very special that day. It was such a cool time spend. Thank you Moscow Fashion Week for being different positive and 'FW next door'
Teplitskaya design always makes me smile and think of my bright and fun blogger buddies. Somehow her shows remind me of Sacramento Amante (read her blog here - she is special).




Galina Kazakova was the first that day for me. Charming fun of joy and fun and totally pretty. I love girl power collections but here I loved seeing clothes for weaker sex to show of this part our being.

For this day I've chosen a brighter look with comfy s…

Moscow Fashion Week 1

I have to admit I didn't attend to all day of MFW. But still it was a great and fun event to addend. I was fortunate to see the most unusual and vivid shows. Even my opening was show was a bit unusual C&C spring/summer 2014 started from dancing (unfortunately I sisn't had a chance to snap it preparing my camera to shoot but you can see the dancers on the back) made us wanna dance in ho swimsuits and shirt dresses.






That was the first part. the second part was more classic and cruise like.






The final part was charming andI couldn't quite believe that was one of the first shows of the day.


As for my outfit I've chosen a very simple yet comfy outfit. It was a very busy day for me and I've been to so many places besides MFW so I've just had to stick to something more casual brighten up with splash of colour (grean, pink, red, orange. blue, navy, yellow to name the most obvious)



I was wearing: Marc by Marc Jacobs backpack
Inkkas sneakers c/o
Choies jumper c/o
