Who are you going to look upon (style-wise , duuh) for this winter?? Chic layers à la Ashley?? Cute and laid back Rachel? Crisp and pulled-together Blair Waldorf (heee)??Bring the up caviar and the vodka, человек ! (which would be russian for "man") and I suggest....matryoshka dolls. Think colorful ethnic prints, Russian rose-printed kitschy scarves, trapper hats, fur fur and more fur to fight the long, snowy winter (which is hélas not my case. See, I'm still wearing my litlle leather jacket without being cold -at all). As for makeup , go all doll-like with rosy cheeks, and a small red pout with long long looong lashes.
For inspiration : visit Prague , or, more affordable, read about the Russian Empire/USSR ( subject of my history exam!) and check Anna Sui's Winter 08 show .
And while you're at it, re-watch Anastasia, my all-time favorite tale and childhoold icon. And learn Russian ! Haha the only thing I know is "Kak tvoja familia" = what's your name , Of course ridiculous as seen it's not written in cyrillic but hey...(Thank you GrandMa for teaching me the cyrillic alphabet!!)
