Ryazan getaway


I don't normally do that but.. last week I've been on a weekend getaway with my friends. We didn't have much time and finances so we picked something nearby. We took train to Ryazan and had a total blast. It is an old city. once very major and a capital of Ryazan duchy during the feudal times. It once was a border town during the Genghis Khan Mongol raids. Its history dates back to 1095 so there is a lot to learn. Now it's in top 20 biggest Russian cities and has a lot to offer to tourist. From historic Kremlin and Churches to ruined USSR heritage and modern funny statues on famous saying ('Even mushrooms have eyes in Ryazan' which goes back to borderline days) and soviet movies. It was a little vacation filled with so much joy I couldn't help but share with you. It was a tiny bit cold there but it was so worth it! I can't help and want to show you the trip.








And the sights:

























I started with actual 'face' or Ryazan and ended with something fascinating but scary. Ryazan is definitely a great example of what Russia actually is. No wonder when Russian people say 'Ryazan face' they mean medium Russian face and soul. A land of contrast where shiny and fine meets ruined and outdated.
 

Have a nice day,

  9. Photos looks great. To this date those buildings still look good, I wonder what it must be like back in those days. It must be very high tech for that period.

  19. Beautiful pictures Lyosha. Ryazan has such a calm look about it. Russia is in my plan soon although I have passed through twice without visiting. I realize there there is so much more than Moscow & St. Petersburg to explore.

CPM: Profashion Masters

Profashion Masters is a contest held annually during Collection Premier Moscow (CPM). This year it was the only catwalk in main program (Body and Beach as usual kept separate catwalk fashion show, you can go through it in this post). I was honored to attend physically to the finals and makes photos to share it with you. the theme is 'coat'. Coat as the say is the hardest clothes there is to master. It amazed the professionals how good the coats on the catwalk were made. A lot worked with prints and made bold moves. Some turned to ethnic roots which I personally absolutely love. My outfit was comfortable and warm, it was a very cold day so I wanted to make sure I feel my best. I wear a lot more greens lately and this top is absolutely gorgeous both color and material. My pants are quite old but I love how warm and comfortable they are. I am happy I put on my iGlassesshop glasses on so I could see every little detail on the coats. I was wearing: Monki top, pins and pants

Green Sign

I wore this outfit on numerous occasions but never took photos. It's so comfortable and easy to assemble I didn't even feel it as an outfit until the moment I realized I am lacking content for my blog. It was a little chilly but the sun was shining brightly which made me definitely want to go. The photos turned out lovely. We took right at the local park entrance with vintage wooden sign stating the park name. You might notice my irregular hair here. yes I am 100% strait hair person at all times. But there I braided my hair went and kept it braided (two braids if you are curious) for 24 hours. It lasted for about an hour but I enjoyed it nevertheless. My whole family has curly hair, everyone but me. I don't mind really but sometimes I wish I had I curly at least as curly as you see above (I did always wanted my sister's curls which is something between of 3c and 4a I think). Also coordination of green is still new to me. I though green is not my color when I was

CPM, part 1

Collection Premiere Moscow or CPM is the fashion event I always wait for. It normally marks the start of spring fashion session being the first major event. I always enjoy it a lot. This year it comes reduced but it did come back and it took place in familiar halls of Moscow Expocenter. I was super excited to have this experience again. It even started to feel like normal spring is coming soon. Yes I loved it that much. Despite what I normally shoot during CPM this time I saw only one show (so far) and it was from Body and Beach section. Yes they didn't make it to regular Designer Pool or CPM selected fashion shows but kept the lingerie. I don't regret it at all. This time with a help of Lingerie Business Magazine they brought us dancing fashion show with wonderful models demonstrating lingerie, swimwear and homewear. As I saw from my Instagram homewear is still in it's prime. And with styles so nice I totally relate. Go check it for yourself. As for my outfit... do you r
