Feeling like a lady

With blooming trees, great weather and the spirit of spring in the air it is sinful not to be happy, smile…smile all the time, smile to the strangers, smile to yourself looking in the mirror, smile while working and smile while resting… it is sinful not to wear dresses. And as a part of my New Year’s resolution I do try to be more smiley, complain less and…be more feminine and add romantic and classy notes to my outfit. I made this dress on fabric market got inspired by Ulyana Sergennko’s a-la Rus style. And you know what, wearing that dress I really feel different:)) Especially if the outfit is completed with vintage bag and Mango black heels.

Enjoy your spring lovelies. XOXO from Shanghai

Does it happen to you when you buy something and you love it so much, so you will wear it almost every day? Certainly it happens to me! Fell in love with these sunglasses and now are wearing them whenever there is even a tiny sunshine:) Call it an obsession! Last time I walked them couple of weeks ago. Decided to complete look with a skirt I got in Bangkok and a bag from my favourite shop in Shanghai. And by the way, this year is probably the best winter weather I’ve ever experienced!!!

2013 in travels!

What a wonderful year it was! I started 2013 in Kuala Lumpur, which was a very spontaneous but definitely one of the best ways to celebrate it. How great it is to celebrate New Year in one of your favourite cities in the world  with temperature more than 20 degrees above zero and with nice people.

I continued my travelling adventures in Cambodia in April. And without any doubt that trip was amazing. Seeing Angkor Wat was an incredible experience. So I highly recommend it!

Then during my August holidays I visited Lviv and Istanbul. Great cities with a very special atmosphere. Feel like I definitely could live in Istanbul!

I had a wonderful summer. And I was definitely very lucky not being in Shanghai in August as it was almost 40 degrees!!!

My next travelling adventure was in November and it was the most anticipated trip as it was my best friend’s wedding. It was held in one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen: Thailand, Krabi island. Valentina’s wedding, without any doubts,  was THE dream wedding!! These photos are taken by our amazing friend Taras Kovalchyk who stayed with us during those 7 perfect days and made the photo diary.

Tomorrow is actually the last day of 2013, it’s hard to believe it! Time flies so fast! 2013 was a great year but I hope 2014 will be even better. Did you already think about resolutions?

Love you all and see yall in 2014!!!!!

Throwback Thursday!

I just understood how I love autumn. And autumns in Shanghai are just perfect. I always try to enjoy every single day of nice weather, especially knowing that winter:( is coming and , oh man, I’m not a winter person. That is why I take every chance to dress up nicely. Found these photos with one of my favourite vintage dresses which I got at “Lolo love vintage”. Every time I put on this dress, I feel so feminine!!! Love love love vintage dresses, especially when you style them correctly.

Love you all. XOXO from Shanghai

Bamboo alley

One of those hidden places in Shanghai that you just can’t ignore: bamboo alley on Julu road. It leads to a cosy Japanese restaurant (where I’ve never been but heard a lot of positive reviews). Love this place because it’s great for taking pictures, I guess it’s because of the light.

It was one of the last days before my trip to Thailand (going to tell you about it soon) and I decided to use this opportunity and take some nice pictures (many thanks to my friend Tammy who is a great photographer).  I was wearing my favourite vintage pants which I got in Bangkok and cardigan which I found on taobao.com. This year I discovered that I’m really into pants, turns out they are not just an “office material” :)))

Hope you are all having a great time!

XOXO from Shanghai
