Breakfast of the growing thin fashionista

black tea with mint(no sugar), rural cottage cheese, fig( fave fruit ever!) and of course a fresh issue of Elle magazine!

It's time now to take care of my body(strange,right?the summer is over and only now I start to think about it) so when it comes to food I choose the best quality and taste against quantity.
This time I was pleasantly surprised by new issue of Elle because it was much more interesting then usually.A new team was working for it and I can see it clearly because it became very witty, glamorous and creative. Before it Russian Elle was something like Cosmopolitan Russia-a magazine for tired housewifes.

behind the scenes

So finally here is a post about the photo shoot for my mothers shop!
It took place at a new art galary/restaurant/boutique/don't even know how to call it in general!But anyway I can say that it's totaly unusual place for our city. It is called Loft project "Storeys" and it is situated in old building of bread-baking plant. I was working for this photo shoot as a make up artist/stylist so I had to make all the looks from head to toes. I'm working as a stylist only for half a year now and I have a good advice for all of you who wants to become a stylist-start collecting costume jewellery and other accessories right now because if you work at photo shoot yo need a HUGE amount of such things to complete the looks. All clothes on the model are from my mothers shop except the shoes and costume jewellery(they are from my own collection).
Some more words about the place...As I already told you that day I was feeling absolutely happy because that place was giving me such a great charge of inspiration that I believed that I can fulfil my dreams even in Saint-Petersburg. The best thing is that all the people that come there are extremely creative and that makes me believe that I'm not the only person here who wants to do not dull office work but create something special and that I can earn a living doing what I really like.Now I feel that my life is changing ,I'm getting mature and that day my inner voice whispered me that I do right things and that I'm on the right track.
All the photos that you see here are some kind of "behind the scenes" and made by me. Photos from the fall campaign are not ready yet so I'll show you them later.
Concentrated on work for 100%)))

OMG!What a beatiful face!!!I'm ready to make it up all the time!I've already arranged with Olga about some future make up projects.

The place where most of the photos were taken was very modern so I decided to do quite an edgy make up for eyes and make pale lips.

Big part of my collection of studded things was used for this look.

Posing when have some spare minutes.

Wearing my fave tee by Danny Robers again. Black and white is my fave color combination now.

Watching the intermediate results with our creative crew.

Tea break.Every trifle there has it's own concept.

You have to be always ready to adjust make up and hair during the photo shoot.

To be continued...Stay tuned!

Give me more!

Hi everyone!I'm sorry that I didn't make the post that I promised to make! My mother was a little bit sick and I had to help her with some household chores. Tomorrow I go back home and I'll post about the photo shoot.
These days I was reading all the blogs that I have in my list and I'm a bit bored because people don't update too often now because they are on vacation .I need some new fresh and really inspiring blogs to read and watch. It has to be something with strong personality(not only pictures from magazines and so on) and soul. Something like style diary or something about life style in general. I'm waiting from you some names and references of great blogs!I really NEED TO REFRESH MY BLOG LIST.Thank you!

the fop

Hi everyone! I had a wonderful day today! I was working as a make up artist/stylist at a photo shoot for the fall campaign for my mothers shop. It took place at one really amazing and very inspiring place, so tomorrow you can expect a loooong post from me about the shooting with backstage photos(they turned out really great!) because today I'm too tired(but happy!) to post all the photos.
On this photo you can see my outfit that I was wearing for the trying on two days before the shooting. It was a case when the whole outfit was built around one piece-this vintage cat eye frames(may be you remember them) that I bought in Helsinki. When I try them on I immediately want to make some kind of retro look and of course wear red lipstick. When I was dressing up I didn't think of any character that could be similar to me but then my friend's husband(he is not interested in fashion at all though) told me that I looked like one character with very strange name Polza(translated as "benefit")from the film "The Fops" and he was right partly! Anyway I really like this outfit because I rarely look so feminine.

must have

Every season I choose a new color of nail polish that I like the most-this summer it was definetely sky blue. I found this nail polish by Dance Legend №343 at one beauty show in the middle of the winter when I was just dreaming about summer and now I use it almost all the time.

Bad blogger is back!

Hi,guys!I'm finally back from Finland! I had a great time there as I already told you,but in fact there is no better place like home!I'm getting pleasure now staying at my own apartment, doing some small ordinary affairs and meeting with my friends.
I have some great news! I was featured at the new issue of Style Sample magazine(Thank you Tamia for including me!) and I'm very excited because it's a first time when my blog is featured in some magazine. You can read a small interview with me here. I was reading this online magazine from it's first issue because I think the concept itself is great(it's a magazine about and for fashion bloggers) and it feels that every issue is worked in workmanlike manner.
This outfit I was wearing when I was going to Finland.It is very simple but I think that you don't need too much when you have tanned skin after vacation on a sea side. As you see I'm wearing a tee by Danny Roberts. I can say that it is my fave tee now because the picture on it is great and it fits right.I was also getting a lot of attention from guys there in Helsinki(sometimes you don't need to wear heels and dresses to look attractive because such relaxed look can also be very nice).I have a new bag from spanish brand Purificacion Garcia.It looks like Hermes Birkin bag and Chanel 2.55 were making love and had a baby but anyway I like it because it has amazing tint of red(I'm crazy about red colour lately!) and it is made of very very soft leather and it looks cool with almost everything in my wardrobe.
I have a lot of photos from my vacation that I'll show you these days,so stay tuned!
