Russian ECo Week part 1


I think it's vital we protect our home. Not only the place you live in on bigger scale. I'm not a big talker about ecological matters - I am no guru in trying your best to live with eco-awareness and not someone who just discovered each of you can actually do something and is eager to pass on new knowledge. But I do what I can with little steps I am making everyday like not using paper as much as I can: no plastic bags, choosing recycled products, switching of water while brushing my teeth etc. But in terms of spreading the eco-awareness I do what I can do best: attending Russian Eco Week, listening to smart people talks, watching eco fashion shows (which is a topic I will show more closely) and showing it to you. This year Eco Fashion Week did not unfortunately fully happened but we still are able to see some part of it through Russia Eco Week. For example right after the opening ceremony general public and journalists seen the MKMM (the contest for young designers) showing their eco themed fashion shows! I was most impressed with number of ideas and clothes made from recycled components (I didn't fully understand what exactly was made of and what actually was recycled). Also I just have to highlight and especially mention collection made of dog fur. It must be so warm!

RU: Защита своего дома - необходимость. И не только то место, где ты живешь, но и нечто более, как я думаю. Я редко говорю на темы экологии, но не потому что они меня не волнуют, а потому что не являюсь ни гуру по вопросам осознанной экологичности жизни, ни неофитом, который только осознал важность проблемы и стремится поделиться знаниями. Но в повседневной жизни я делаю свои маленькие шажки постоянно: отсутствие пластиковых пакетов, приоритет преработанным материалам, контроль использования воды (например, во время чистки зубов) и так далее. Что касается распространения экологически этичной жизни я делаю то, что я могу делать лучше всего: посещаю мероприятия такие как Российская Экологическая Неделя, слушаю доклады, смотрю показы этичной моды (на этом я остановлюсь чуть ниже) и показываю это вам, мои читатели. В этом сезоне, к сожалению, полноценной Недели Экологической моды не случилось, однако часть ещё прошла в рамках Российской Экологической Недели у стен Кремля. Например, сразу после открытия заинтересованные в вопросах экологии жители города и журналисты видели показ в рамках конкурса молодых дизайнеров МКММ, который был посвящен экологии и этичной моде. Я была поражена количеством идей и одежды, сделанной из переработанных компоненов (не всегда, однако было полностью понятно, какие менно части выполнены из переработанных метериалов). Ещё я прямо-таки чувствую себя обязанной отметить коллекцию, сделанную из собачьей шерсти. Это должно быть так тепло!


















As for my outfit I picked a warm sweatshirt, warm pants, coat and a hat because it's already fall and spending an hour and a half taking photos almost without a motion is tricky if you want to stay healthy.
RU: Мой образ состоял из теплого свитера, теплых брюк, пальто и шляпы, потому что осень полностью вступила в свои права в Москве, а провести полтора часа, делая фотографии и наслаждаясь показом практически без движения, не так и просто, особенно, если ты заботишься о своё здоровье.




I was wearing:
Calvin Klein bag and sweatshirt
Uniqlo jeans
Mango coat
thriefted boots (from Amsterdam)
not branded (yet my favorite) cap

 

Have a nice day,

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.

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…

A glass of water

I am planning on full term good post during the weekend. But I really wanted an update today so... Here it is! My super comfy look, something I often wear when I don't really want to think much of my looks but still look relaxed and stylish: a jumpsuit, long coverup or cardigan or kimono, soft heelless shoes.
I wore this as you might have already guessed to the theater yesterday. It is probably last one for me till the next season in fall. It was super fun. It was a English comedy play about Queen Anna and her court: politics, love and war. The play is called 'Glass of Water', that is why I named my post that way. We enjoyed it so much even though we were not planning it very forward, only getting tickets 3 days before (we normally plan at least month ahead).
P.S. My leg is ok now

On me:
Monki jumpsuit
Viktoria Tretyak cover up

Have a nice day, Lyosha
