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!
Русский перевод под изображением.


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,

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:







Fallow Deer

Yesterday Russia celebrated International Women's Day. I take it as a day when we remember why we need to fight to equal rights but a lot of people here celebrate it as day to remind girls to be pretty and inspire men. I don't really want to discuss it and get sad. Also a lot of people (me included) take it as a day to spread love to your female relatives. I went to see my grandmother. I love her so much! My fantastic mother was there with us as well. Our favorite men: my husband, my father and grandfather (I love his mustache so much!) - came as well. But as regular family time is boring, something new and exciting isn't. Not long before we found out about Fallow Deer shelter not far from my grandparent's place. We decided to add it to our tour. And here we were! The place is awesome. I am crazy about the idea of putting people in improvised cage while actual animals run free. How do we get to see them? There is spot where they eat next to the 'visitor cage'.…

Follow the White Rabbit

You don't really have to have a reason to dress nicely and walk outside the doors. That is exactly what my outfit is about. Also I wanted to take some outfit photos in the new place (new mural, yay!) and show this beautiful Alice in Wonderland. Follow the White Rabbit and enjoy the weekend as much as I do!
I wore my favorite culottes and finally my favorite sneakers (so fast to put on), my favorite jacket with actual pockets and nice fit and Sun glasses! I need sun glasses. I so stupidly excited about that. 



I was wearing:
c/o Glasseshop sun glasses
c/o Zaful jacket
Uniqlo cullottes
Fila sneakers

Have a nice day, Lyosha
