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.

Hello lovelies! Guess what? This work-aholic girl of yours has returned from the vacation! As part of this year’s resolution list, I swore to let “The Planner” in me loose and be spontaneous. So far that resulted in an overnight trip to Vegas (so not like me), a crash of a party (TOTALLY not me) and this last-minute trip to Mexico.
So while I’m trying to
pull myse lf off th e sofa unpack, I leave you with this dreamy editorial showcasing exactly what I was doing for the past 5 days…that is NOTHING!

All this recent retail design developments at work left me in the particularly dangerous shopping mood. And how can you not give in, when the Peter Marino is at his best with the new Chanel Store on Avenue Montaigne. With his off-the-wall biker looks, he knows how to hit all the right spots when it comes to retail seduction.
He had me at the first string of pearls at the staircase…and Chanel tweed wallcovering in soft gold, seriously? The man is a genius in my book. Just look at the details!
