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!

Women's Success Awards

November 29ty there was a great awards ceremony in Moscow. We've been celebrating the Women's Success Awards by Women's Time magazine. Not only it is important to appreciate the work and achievements of people no matter of their sex but setting an additional pattern makes appreciation wider in general. I was honored to attend the awards and want to share my experience with you. RU: 29 Ноября в Москве прошла отличная церемония награждения. Мы отмечали Women's Success Awards журнала Women's Time. Мне кажется, что важно не только отмечать достижения и работу людей вне зависимости их пола, но несколько сузить выбор иногда, чтобы посмотреть на достижения более широко. Я была очень рада посетить эту церемонию и разделить мои впечатления с моими читателями. For the event I've chosen a long dress (it's awards after all) from my fellow blogger, heeled boots to keep my feet warm as it recently got even colder in Moscow and a funn

See you in glasses, Cowboy!

I am so excited to share one more cooperation with Glassesshop ! I was even more excited because now living in Mexico I do need more sun glasses than I used to have before. During our last and very fruitful collaboration I received three lovely pairs. Two of them are regular sunglasses which were immediately "shared" with my partner Max (he loves both pairs) and one of them is only for me. It's a great option for travels to save space if you ask me. Transition glasses where you can simply magnet the sunglasses part and take it off in a flash. Super handy! And... as I promised The outfit I wear with transforming glasses is a new item from Cuidado con el Perro x Cowboy Bebop. I am a huge of anime and watched it an insane number of times. I just had to have something from it. This little item is great for Cancun climate and reptile like me. I enjoy wearing it the evenings when it gets a little colder and no sun. I really enjoy having Faye on right and Spike on my left all
