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!

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

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'.…
