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,

Salome

I just love theaters. Once again my fantastic hubby and I bought tickets and went on to see the play. In fact I wanted to watch it even since summer when my husband showed me this theater and I saw the photos and model of the stage of this play. Also this is a signature most famous play in the Viktyuk theater. It's based on Salome by Oscar Wilde. Visually stunning and deep. I enjoyed it a lot.

For the date evening I have chosen a simple outfit. All black and a bright skirt. I do enjoy being able to wear a short skirt in winter without complications. Yay for warm winter, I do hope it stays that way for longer (as it's January 31st today I can tell you January was the most warm in Moscow ever recorded, average temperature (night included) was above zero). Do you like my outfit?

 The play was so beautiful!


I was wearing:
Uniqlo skirt
Jil Sander boots
not branded/old turtle neck (it's over 10 years old)
Monki headband
c/o iGlassesShop glasses
Earrings originally belonged to my…

Just one more outfit

I haven't done a proper outfit post for ages! I even got asked if I stopped blogging about personal style (And I love you guys for that!). I realized how wrong I am about it. So there you have it an outfit post. I actually made this outfit to relax and enjoy my time with my hubby. Nothing serious, a little walk, laughs and delicious meal. We might go to movies or something. Somewhere in between a date and just us being very much in love. I know I am blessed having found my better half, my one true love.






Velvet is not something I was very much into throughout my life but lately I am a velvet girl. I like everything velvet.. don't blame me for this. Brighter colors are something I really want to wear more often during the grim winter months.

I was wearing:
Jil Sander boots
Uniqlo pants and top

Have a nice day, Lyosha

Fairy Tale, part 5. Prague

Blast! I'm starting with Max and mine photo together. As usual we have it on only one spot but the nice guy we asked to shoot us take 3 photos. here is the closest version.


It's very sad to say good bye to Czech Republic again. It's my last post about this wonderful country this time. May be there would be more one day.
Prague is very pretty and even though we have met before the Czech capital showed me some more of her beauties. Max and I always travel on foot so that we can see more and feel more. The place I'm writing for is the Vojanovy sady as Google Maps adviced. It's in the historic center next to the Prague hrad. We found it a very calm and peaceful place. The only thing that sounded weird  to us is that there were not allowed to walk with dogs. Some minutes in this lovely place passed and we have found the reason

The peacocks are walking freely there and we had a great joy seeing them walking in the park without any guards in the middle of winter in Prague.
