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

GLITZ AND GLAM VIENNA BALL

After spending an entire day looking for a gown for this years Vienna Ball Moscow which was held at the Moscow’s Manege Exhibition Hall, I was happy to know that I made the right dress choice (couldn’t get the right size,colour or they were just awful looking gowns). This year was the 10th edition of the Vienna ball and theme was a tribute to the bicentenary of the Patriotic War of 1812 against Napoleon.
