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!

Happy Monday!

It was a it rainy yesterday but we loved it. It means there way less people outside and breathing is super nice. It is still very warm outside so I added a light denim jacket and a hat (as a shelter for possible rain) to finish it. Actually my husband chose this hat and it totally took on different level.

We've been filming a yoga video with my classmate and teacher on Saturday and I was dead beat on Sunday. Actually we took walk to take a walk, we had other plans put rearranged everything to take a rest on Sunday. We succeeded. Yay me!


I was wearing:
Topshop shorts
Uniqlo One Piece t-shirt
Adidas flipflops
c/o Rosegal hat

Have a nice day, Lyosha

Birthday Boy

Summer! I love it when it's hot. I never complain about the hot weather if I don't do it on purpose to get some ice cream. I don't really associate summer with bright colors in clothing but I do feel it's ideal for floral print. If you ask me I go out as much as I can safely. It is not easy because it looks like that despite the numbers my country has forgotten about the virus at all. We stay away from people as much as possible so I am super thankful we know our local park so well. All I really need to avoid people is to pass the doors.
I haven't worn these shorts for ages. I saw it last week in my closet and realized I really want to wear it now. I practically live in it this week. So comfy! I like matching it with brighter colors so really pop.



It's my pup's Birthday today. Raidho, the elder boy, turned nine today. Time flies so fast. I love him to the moon and back and do hope he has many-many active years ahead. Happy happy Barkday!
I was wearing:
Monk…

Round and round we go

I really like wearing glasses and no matter how much I love my catchy eye wear you can not always wear rainbow-colored, neon or huge oddly shaped frames. Sometimes we need something more basic and round. My new frames are calm and easy to wear and style. They also remind me of Happy Potter which I personally adore. It is a great pair to wear without much thinking or matching with the outfit. As you see I wear simple breezy summer clothes and enjoy myself and the park and all the details.

The pair of round glasses is from my favorite Glassesshop, I highly recommend you this shop: the prices are affordable, fast and safe shipping and huge variety of frames in store. If you have perfect vision it is still a place to check out as there are sunglasses options for everything in both classic and tinted variations.



Bonus because it's mid week:


I was wearing:
Thiefted breezy pants
H&M bralette
Uniqlo shirt
Portal Russia shoes
c/o Glasseshop glasses

Have a nice day, Lyosha
