Collector's edition


This week was not easy to me. I feel absolutely out of place, had a little cold and definitely ate too much sweet stuff. Anyway. I am not a model citizen lately. Some of my fantastic  readers who read both my blog and follow my Instagram (you can be one of them, I'd love it!) asked me if I was going to post in my 'big', 'actual' blog about my latest museum time. To be honest I didn't plan to but then I thought why not. It at least half way compensates my absence online. Oh and my big vacation next week. Here is what I wore for the museum time out with my beautiful Mother.
We got tickets prior which is a big deal in Moscow. Local people LOVE exhibitions so if you don't book and buy tickets beforehand (we did a week before) you will have to wait in the queue. It is scary because it will take a lot of time. 3 hours if you are lucky.
My Mother love impressionists so there was no way she wanted to miss out this exhibition. It is curious. We are used to see art gathered due to some reason: time, place, art style. This time the reason was the original collectors. Yes it was an exhibition of art once gathered by talents of old Russian collector world, the brothers of Shchukin. Their interests varied brother from brother, with making the most of Impact with Impressionist art style and Sergei Shchukin. The collection of Henri Matisse and Paul Gauguin was huge and very impressive. It was very curious not only knowing the reasons of making some of paintings (for example La Dance was painted for Sergei Shchukin as per order). The Gauguin room has sadder story behind: suffering from loosing his wife he wanted to brighten up his life thus making a wall of cheerful and colorful Tahiti motives.

My outfit was very comfy. I wore jeans, long warm cardigan (it is always chilly in the museums) and heels. I like wearing heels to the 'smart' places, it helps me to move slower and appreciate art more. Glasses are important for moles like me to see better and headband helps to keep my hair off my face when I bend to see something closer (mostly those tiny plates with description)

 
 whoever put it together like that. I love you! You made my day. And yes I love Picasso, so it's irony and love combined.




 it is the portrait of the collection Sergei Shchukin. welll and me.

I was wearing:
Levi's jeans
Monki top and headband
c/o Glassesshop glasses
Zara cardigan

 

Have a nice day,
Lyosha

  17. I always find it interesting what people describe is art. Everyone has such different tastes. Sometimes paintings that look like a splash are worth millions! I love looking at illustrators and graphic designer's work the most. However, I love your outfit and wish I could look good in heels like yours!

Add a layer

The last day of Summer was the hottest in Moscow during the whole recorded time. I didn't fully enjoy it frankly having tons of things to do. And so I did with the first day of fall as well. I kinda wished I was myself on the photos below: chilling and relaxed on a boat.
Today I don't only want to show the wonderful idea of boat style transitioning outfit but also show you my new item. So if you happen to be on a boat take a cardigan. On water even slight wind might feel colder especially when fall is right there. however it might be good to swim or sunbath so you might want to wear a bikini. Light cardigan is on to go item for such moment: just throw it right onto your swimsuit and enjoy the comfort and beauty. This purple babe is from Dear Lover. The they both wholesale and retail options so you will definitely find what suits you best. There are tons of cardigans and it is a joy! I have to admit when I feel the breath of autumn I tend to look at all the cardigans out there.…

MFW, final day: Svetlana Evstigneeva

ENG: My final day of MFW! It was my most exciting day and even a little bit of bitterness from Moscow Fashion Week coming to an end didn't spoil it all for me. The show of Svetlana Evstigneeva was so good I decided to make a separate post for it! So the post for today is fully dedicated to the most beautiful show of all MFW in my eyes. Wedding and formal dresses, charming accessories, fantastic flowers and makeup - all of that combined to bring you the best possible combo ever. I highly suggest you to just watch.

RU: Последний день Недели Моды в Москве! Дня меня он оказался самым ярким и волнующим, так, что даже небольшая горечь от того, что MFW кончается не смогла оттенить моей радости. Показ Светланы Евстигнеевой был настолько прекрасен, что я решила выделить для него отдельный пост. Таким образом публикация, которую вы сейчас читаете, будет полностью посвяжена самому красивому показу в рамках Недели Моды в Москве по моему скромному мнению. Сва…

Myshkin and River Cruising

I definitely needed that cruise. I feel so much better today! It was such a wonderful trip to me. The weather was good, there was a tiny bit of rain the first night but after that it was food. There even was sunny on our last purely cruising day. I think we will cruise a lot more next year, especially as there budget-friendly weekend options available. It was a three-day (starting late Friday) cruise with only one stop on a way: Myshkin. Myshkin is most likely named so not because of Mouse (which shocking for Russian speaking person having it mascot animal as mouse and even as part of coat of arms) but as letter changing from original Myskin (mys is cape in Russian). But there is also a legend of Russian ruler being saved by running mouse from poisonous snake. A lot of people believe that both stories are true. Anyway, right now Myshkin is all about mice, there are tons of jokes (for example stating both human population and approx mice population head to head), tiny monuments and the…
