Second day of Riga Fashion Week started with show-room Madam Bonbon presentation. This one is such a conceptual place! May be even way too conceptual:) Seriosly! Seeing shoes on a luxurious bed or even in bathroom during the presentation may be funny, but can you imagine yourself buying clothes at such place? I can hardly imagine stepping on a toiled to reach 50% discounted pair of shoes.:) But the atmosphere is definitely perfect there! That is why we’ve spend there so much time, chatting with guests and designers, taking pictures…
I promised the new prize will blow your mind away. And such promises are worth keeping. That’s why this April the best commentator gets fancy Rebecca Minkoff clutch by Shopbop online store. Well, actualy their delivery is so qick that you don’t need to wait for a month:) But in case you’re eager to leave some comments in our blog, you’ll have a chance to receive it for free, what is always a nice bonus!
The rules are simple as always: leave your comments, suggestions and objections under the April updates. At the end of the month we will choose the most active and interesting commentator and send him this clutch. Are you in?
There are not that many places in the world where we can feel like home while doing our job. And Riga is one of them. We are here now for our third fashion week but for the first time representing only our blog and I couldn’t be more proud! Though we have missed previous season, I still feel like we were here a few days ago. And mostly because of the friendly people we always meet here. Just imagine, Riga Fashion Week celebrates it’s 20st season and some of people are working here since the very first fashion show! Isn’t it crazy? I can’t believe it’s true, cause Moscow fashion week crew changes each season:)
My dear girls! It’s time for our Paris chic giveaway results:) Thanks for being so active! I’m so happy you also liked the clutch. Isn’t it cool? Please, don’t be surprised that some of you received less numbers than the number of your links. I’ve noticed in a rules than not all social networks are participating.
Why are things always like this? If I’ve been preparing for an event all day, there is definitely something akward is going to happen, so I’ll feel stupid and sad. If I like something so much I can’t wait to show it to you, some surcumstances will ruin everything. For example, our third dancing video we’ve been preparing since Year. I wanted to show it so badly I couldn’t leave job earlier than 23.00, while packing my outfits for Riga Fashion Week I was dreaming about writing new post. Forget about it! I didn’t notice how the time to leave for the airport came. OK, I was intending to do it at the airport – there’s always that time you have no idea what to spend on before the flight… If you follow me on Instagram (@thestylejungle), you should know already that we were late for our flight and some kind of miracle saved us from missing this trip. Though it wasn’t that easy – while running towards the gate, Alesha fell down right in the middle of the airport:)
Once we had a discussion in one of my social network about the real aim of outfit bloggers. To show their style? To receive free clothes? To become models?:) There was no outfit posts in our blog for a long time, but now they’re one of the most important parts of what we’ve been doing. And I’m going to tell what each such post means to me. Though I can lose some of my clothes partners, cause they will understand that clothes is not everything I’m interested in:) But I want you to understand me better so that we can always be on the same wavelength.
I told you, told you, she will be back soon. Four years ago we were spending our summer in New York, watching Gossip Girl every evening. I wonder if there is something more “new yorkish” for me than You know you love me, XO XO, Gossip Girl🙂 And this march we were doing our best to organize all the shootings, meetings and relax in New Yorks, cause we’re going there at the end of April. You know, last time leaving this city we thought we’re leaving it forever. That days we didn’t have that much possibilities to travel as we do now.
“Breakfast at Tiffany’s”, “Great Gatsby”, “Pretty Woman”, “The Help”, “Anna Karenina” – there are so many movies coming to mind while speaking about the most stylish movies. But have you ever noticed that mostly they’re of our parents age or about past. Are there no modern movies about modern times and with modern trends? I can’t agry and happily show you my top-10 of the most stylish movie characters that inspire me each time not only to look better and think out new outfitts, but to work harder in order to reach success they have. And that’s really important for me now:)
Мы давно привыкли к fast fashion. Возможность за копейки покупать наряды "как с обложки", менять их каждый день и без малейшего сожаления забывать навсегда по прошествии сезона уже никого не удивляет. Однако сумки и туфли все еще остаются для нас тем, что покупается навека. И дорого. Ну, хотя бы дороже, чем топы и джинсы:) Почему? Не знаю, мы привыкли жить под диктовку, наверно. Когда-то перспектива покупать дизайнерскую одежду, сшитую не по индивидуальным меркам, казалась невозможной и повергала людей в шок. Со временем это стало нормой. Потом удивление вызывали дешевые вариации дизайнерских творений (девочки, только не путайте с подделками! О тех, кто клеит узнаваемые ярлычки на свои "вариации", мы говорить не будем). И те тоже вошли в привычку. Возможно, совсем скоро fast fashion доберется и до неприкосновенной зоны туфель и сумок. Я, например, буду этому только рада! Не так-то просто каждый раз выдумывать оригинальный наряд, имея в арсенале сильно ограниченный набор обуви…
