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.

How do you know that the designer is…well…a little obsessed? It’s when instead of placing the chandelier at the “industry standard” height, one places it much lower. The reason? Isn’t it obvious, so that the diners all through the supper could marvel at the every last detail of that piece of art.
Had a burning desire to do just that today at work, but those standards (god bless them) took over…again. There’s always the next time!

if one day I let my passion for everything vintage run wild and free, my interiors will start to look like those in this video…can’t get this song out of my head.
I’m so looking forward to the first weekend in three years of doing-nothingness. All the finals are behind, how exciting is that! At the same time it feels a little weird not to have a big goal ahead, being a planner by nature this situation makes me anxious. So I’ve decided to start planning the next “BIG THING”. A European vacation! While I’m positively sure which country I want to visit next, the schedule availability doesn’t look that bright at all. Oh well, I’ll start planning anyways…with the perfect wardrobe for a perfect European Vacation. No schedule can deprive a girl of dreaming about it
