Hello lovelies, I promised not to leave you alone for too long so here am I again. This time I have something very very special. That is a little sneak preview of a highly anticipated fresh press – Kelly Wearstler’s “RHAPSODY“.
Officially on sale October 23rd, the book has a lot eye-candy for Kelly’s fans. Everything we love about her vibe: daring scale interplay, brave color mixes and curious vintage finds. Did I mention a LOT of creative inspiration?

Oh NO! I could swear that it’s bee only a few weeks since my last post here. How this abyss of a gap happen?
Well, it’s been quite a bumpy ride (literary actually) with a few late working nights for a hotel presentation in China (or should I say early mornings?). BUT don’t be too sad for this girl quite yet. Though I found myself trying to catch up on life well too often that I’d like to, I still managed to squeeze some new adventures and fun outings. And I can’t wait to share.
For starters, my new HOTEL LOVE. Magnificently historic Dolder Grand 5-star luxury baby in all its re-freshed beauty.
No words needed. Just submerge yourself in this serenity.

One might think that only our over-consumerized society can produce flops like this to ease our existence, but no…I guess it’s in the human nature to always push the boundaries. After all, you never know, when you going to hit the new “must-have”. Here are some of my favorite inventions for the 20th century:
Face mask against snow storms
Pedestrian shovel to reduce number of accident injuries.
Glasses for reading while laying in bed.
The stroller in case of radio-active explosion.
Share a smoke?
Even the dudes from “Fast and Furious” would be jealous.

Lets dwell a little bit more on the topic of summer and 50s fashion. This time coming form the homeland of Mother-Russia. While the fashion world is speculating on her first Couture Show in Paris with Fall 2012 (straight after no less then Chanel), I want to step one collection back of this up-and-coming designer, Ulyana Sergeenko. Her unique personal style was in the spot light of fashion bloggers for a while and it’s great to see how she transformed it into the couture lines.
It’s just too soon for me to think of colder days in the middle of LA summer. Flowing skirts, flower prints and bodies suit much better, don’t you agree?
I absolutely love how she marries together different aspects of Russian style with European influences: the glamor of Bridgit Bardot, the romanticism of a long-gone Soviet school uniform, folk Russian prints and the simple grace of a 50s working girl prepping up for a date.

Something about this summer and nostalgic 50s fashion that’s been calling my name lately. Or may be it’s Bianca Balti in her latest Dolce & Gabbana editorials, looking so fashionably lazy in the sun with that Bridgette Bardoe make-up and hair.
Don’t you just want to wind-off on the unplanned voyage to visit some forgotten Italian relatives right about now? Let me know if you have any, ‘coz I don’t)))
And you if you still not entirely convinced, watch this video and I guarantee you’ll get that traveling bug.
