There is that kind of love when you understand – it is something above logic and will never end. And I’m not talking about common human love. It’s about love only fashion addicts can uderstand. Love to purse, watches, boutique. I’m lucky to have that kind of love with American Eagle Outfitters. And I wasn’t payed to say this:) I really can’t imagine my wardrobe without their clothes anymore. Before spring collection came to the shops I was surprised to understand, that there is nothing more to buy there, I already have everything! I wear American Eagle Outfitters while dancing, working, having lazy breakfast with Alesha when there is no need or wish to wear something more elegant than bulky sweater (you got it, right?).
So I can’t even describe how happy I was when they invited me to participate in this cool project: to tell how is American Eagle Outfitters connected with my everyday life. We did so much together! Workshops, lectures, shootings… I literally live in this clothes.
And the most important, what AEO gave me – is freedom to dress how I like during my dance classes. You know, how much dancing means for me, you know, how much I love that crazy juzz-funk dressing manner and flying hair, of course. In our small video and some photos we did our best to show you my emotions. I really hope, you’ll enjoy it and can’t say I’m not scared, because I look so unfamiliar there, without any glossy or glamour mood, but absolutely happy. And I couldn’t be more honest than in this moments.
Don’t forget to touch the photo in order to see all the brands we are wearing
This week I was asked how my best St. Valentine’s day looked like. And I suddenly understood, that… it didn’t happen at all! We’re not that kind of people waiting for 14th of February with great impatience. I like to think that it’s because good relationships don’t need a reason. But anyway – holiday is holiday and why not to celebrate it? Perhaps, not by going to theatre and restaurant, but with a beautiful shooting made in a wonderful place.
Don’t forget to check the brands right on the first photo
There is always something I’m ready to fight with. In my childhood I was too shy to speak with unknown people, so I became a journalist and now communicating with new people is part of my profession. I wanted to be "serious" journalist and never paid any attention to glossy magazines. Now I’ve been working for them for 3 years already:) I could never understand what people liked in zumba and gave a workshop. That is how my love with zumba started.
Another "never ever" point turning to "look, how cool is that" was that "unglossy" photoshoot. I’m talking about all those photos in strange colors, taken in strange places with strange camera. I’m really a fan of something more classical: beautiful girls with long hair and legs, standing in front of a big city in clothes like Jil Sander and Marni in colorblocking trend. I think, you’ve got it, right?
And here we go! Poses, I didn’t got used to, too much light and all that hipster hints. Of cource, it may be not that highlighted as needed, but it was kinda awkward for me as I never did anything like this before, But I really enjoyed the shooting and the results. Definitely worth trying, what do you think?
Oh, please, don’t touch me, I’m not ready to wake up yet. Because what else can this wonderful interview published in St. Peterburg’s ONS magazine be if not a happy dream? To be honest, when Julianna first wrote me about an interview, I couldn’t even imagine those interesting and far from usual questions. It was really a great pleasure to answer them. But even above happy I became when she showed me the design of the pages. Everything is made so beautifuly! I could hardly wait the date to show you those pages!:)
By the way, I’m still able to speak not only about me:) And I can’t miss a chance for some compliments for ONS Magazine team. They’ve made a really great job! So many interesting people in one issue, such a beautiful design! Do you want to see it? Than visit online version .
OK, it was obvious. I’m late with the results for to days…again! But those two bonus days are a real chance for some of you to post a photo. As I promised, there will be 3 girls to receive 2 500 rub shopping in Motivi online store. And today our congratulations go to…
The premium Kira Plastinina line fashion show as always made me thinking about the russian fashion industry. But not about those people who are traditionaly meant to be "industry", but about that strange group of people always gathering around. I can talk about this for ages but don’t let me screw all the impression from Alesha’s photos.
In our publication you’re not going to see classical fashion show photos. We better show you how we see this event: an old mansion full of more than modern celebs, TVhosts and Kira’s employees, who are all beatiful girls from posters, cozy noise of conversations, waiters with the best sense of humor I’ve ever met, beginning without delays, unexpectedly laconic collection which should be called "glossy" and those wonderful dark lips models had. I immediately lost my mind!
Though I have a strong feeling, that my lecture was like an ages ago, it happened not earlier than last Wednesday. And I can’t resist from repeating all my thanks and love for those who came despite the awful weather. I can do it thousand more times. All your questions, gratitude and patience during my 3 hours speech is always the best motivation for me and my team. The fact that you stayed after the workshop to chat informaly is so important for me! I hope you really found something new and useful for turning your blog into professional one. And I’m looking forward for those private meetings we arranged with some guests in order to discuss their blogs and plans. Isn’t it exciting?
I was actually planning to talk about the secrets of profitable and useful linking, but unxepectedly (as it is always in Russia) winter came and there are now some more important questions. Like – how to make great outfit photos during such an awful weather? You’ll probably agree that it’s either possible for “80 lvl bloggers” or for nobody. So, all we can do is to follow secrets of those bloggers who are not scared of snow and manage to look beautiful even in winter.
Dear friends, I’m so excited about the new prize in our traditional monthly contest. In February it’s going to be stylish vintage backpack Wild and Wolf from one of my favorite online shops of cool stuff Pichshop. I wish I could have it myself, I even have an ideal skirt to match with the backpack, but this time it’s all about you, not me. 🙂
So, please, feel free to write your opinion, criticize or (I hope!) compliment. You can do whatever you like – even share the links to your blogs / web-pages or clothes you liked and so on.
Some time ago I told you that we’ve invented two upgrades for my outfit posts. And it’s time to show you one of them. Take a closer look at the first photo. See those colored circles? They help you to identify brands I’m wearing (and where to buy them) even withouth looking through all the post. Convenient, isn’t it?
Lets get back to the photoshoot. It was our second shooting for Charuel during a wonderful excursion to Aptekarsij Ogorod (in case you’ve missed my emotional post about it follow this link). Honestly, I was even more impressed by succulents than by those beautiful orchids from the previous photos. Succulents are such an unusual, heroic plants! You can’t even imagine how unexpectedly wise our nature can be! And of coure I immediately felt in love with the place of exhibition. Isn’t it nice and chic?
