FOREVER FRIENDS

Sasha my agent out here in Moscow, took me and the BF out for a trip around one of the coolest neighbourhoods in Moscow, in the Patriarch’s Ponds. You know I love anything cultural and hip. While making the rounds along the cobbled streets filled with small boutiques and “hipster/arty farty” shops we ended up at a cafe sweetly named Friends Forever.

“HIPSTER” MARKET MOSCOW

This sunday I peeled myself from my balcony and crossed the bridge over to the Red October for the Summer Sunday vintage market. Hipsters and vintage culture is in-vogue in Moscow. You can imagine the outfits that came out and the little knick knacks that turned a simple parking lot into a time capsule of design and fashion.

FOR THE LOVE OF HIP HOP RUN D-M-C

In my new found love of 80s style and fashion, this jacket was a must have! One of my old time favourite Hip Hop acts, Run DMC print on faded denim jacket, cest chic. It goes with just about anything. (photo by: http://www.coloredspolights.tumblr.com)

Material Girl

MATERIAL GIRL MOSCOW

For a friend’s farewell and birthday (those two events in one day allowed me to play socialite for a night), I chose to rock the tartan look pre-automn in Moscow. In my defence it was a bit chilly so I brought out the tartan peplum skirt i just got from ASOS and styled it out! Got a bit of inspiration from Material Girl (Madonna) and from the 2012 Fall Collection Fashion TV, plus I LUV adding colour splash in Moscow’s grey skyline

NIGHT RIDER

When walking around the city, cars are a big Moscow scene, from their weird parking to their driving skills. So when you see things like this, it’s a kodak moment. From FBI logo cars in the dark ala night rider
