Sugar Lane. The interview.

This is a very important interview for me. Because this time I had a chance to talk to wonderful fellow blogger about her designs, wonderful clothes, ideas and past. many of my readers know her as well - Sugar Lane. I don't think there is much I can tell you about her because she'll tell it to you better so read the post and jump to her blog Sugar Lane

1 How did you start the line? How long did you plan that? Was it a longterm dream or the idea just came up to your mind and worked?
I started “Sugar Lane Design” a year back, but it was something I wanted to do earlier. A design line had always been on my mind, even before studying fashion design; I started experimenting with silks in 2009, while I did my MBA in India. I wanted to design something special, unique, and use all those wonderful Indian silks that we can barely find in Europe. So I started selecting vintage fabrics… turbans were the first thing I came up with, as they’re my key accessory, but then I wanted to do something more personal, some garment where you could really enjoy the touch of silk, and that’s how the robes were born!
2 Does blogging help you with your designs?
Blogging helps, it’s like a shopping window. The Internet is really useful when you start a business, especially if you are selling online. Blogging also involves visiting many other websites, so that also helps during the creative process; it’s a huge source of inspiration. However, I try not to overload sugarlaneblog.com with my designs, I don’t want to bore my readers with self promotion, so I just post about it when there is a new collection or I include some garments on my personal style posts eventually.
3 Which were your first memories regarding fashion?
My mom is also a fashion designer, so most of my childhood I was surrounded by fabrics and threads… I loved arranging and classifying buttons at her studio. I got my first sewing machine when I was 5, it was a kids version in pink, turquoise and yellow, but it actually worked!
4 Tell us about the first piece you ever designed
Well, apart from mini dresses for all my Barbies, the first piece that I designed 100% was my favorite silk coat. I fell in love with the brocade pink and green heirloom silk, and I knew it had to be mine, so I got it and after a lot of thinking I turned it into a coat. I fell so proud when I tried it on, I guess that was the moment I decided this is what I wanted to do.
You can see the coat here: http://www.sugarlaneblog.com/2012/11/bright-in-silk.html


5 A little survey for Inside and Outside blog: some say talented in fashion kids usually try to make their toys look better (repainting for example) did you do something like that? And if you did then what?
LOL, I love repainting! Actually in my family we have a saying: “Paint any reality that you don’t like”. It’s a metaphor for life, but I use it a lot for walls, furniture or anything that I don’t really like J I don’t think it has to do with fashion or talent, it’s just that creative people can’t stop reinventing their surroundings. My DIY section on the blog is a good example; it’s usually about fashion, but sometimes I feel like painting a door or making candle holders and I just do it!

What's in my bag?

I never did such post and really wanted to fill in the blanks here. Moreover I wanted to do it because I recently got two items which are hard to show in the outfit but are part of my daily life and style for sure. Plus it's it fun to have a closer look in my daily life? That's why I want to show you my bag contents.

When I'm not wearing a backpack which usually means I have a sports uniform inside or planning or carry something more or less big or going for some travels (so I need my hands as free as possible) I tend to use smaller scale bags. The point is to have only minimum of necessary things with me and not to loose something important. This time I'm featuring my recently most loved bag by NewChic (you can shop it here).

Usually I have a wallet with me. When who doesn't? We still money to life, right? It is my very new and super comfy wallet which was provided by great company NewChic I recently posted two posts with their awesome items here and here.

Sorry, I've been super-busy lately. I'm actually kinda busy right now as well, but I'm trying to do my best to work on the blog!
This post is made form 2 outfits, both having its centre in shoes. I'm in love with this babes! The heel is high for me (11,5 sm) but still this shoes are comfy! Can walk and walk but nothing would worry me.
Heels do always add classyness to any outfit, make it more alive... Less words, more action - let's see my shoes!

Прошу прощения, я была очень-очень занята. Я в действительности занята и сейчас, но я очень стараюсь оставить пост.
Этот пост состоит из 2 нарядов, оба постоены на туфлях. Я так люблю этих крошек! Каблук высоковат для меня (11,5 см) но тем не менее эти туфли удобные! Могу ходить и ходить, но ничто не беспокоит меня.
Каблуки всегда добавляют стиля любому наряду, делают его более живым... Меньше слов, больше дела - посмотрим на мои туфли!


I was wearing:
Tatum dress
Iron Fist heels
Colin's belt
leather jacket

Latvian minute

I am on a short trip to ST. Pete's to accompany my husband on programming conference. Actually he is working and I am walking around the places, go on a guided tour and generally enjoy myself. And yes I envy myself too.
As I always do when I am away today I am sharing with my travel experience the post about my past vacation. It was a glorious trip to Riga, Latvia where I ran my first half marathon this year. I loved the gold label race and the whole city as well. I could feel the love people feel towards it. And I loved Riga. But it was not only Riga for me. We took a day to experience a near by touristic place. It is an old and well known hiking location with beautiful river, forests and 3 castles. A pure gem people enjoy vacationing ever since XIX century. Last May we joined the glorious company of tourists in Sigulda and Turaida,





 My outfit was all touristy and cozy so pardon my way too regular outfit, not really worthy a mention.
But the Livonia order castle as well as Turai…
