In search of the evening light last night, I came to realize, that blogging for me has become a self-expression, a form of finding myself. I am going through a vintage stage again. And I think this time around it’s here to stay for a little while longer.

This dress is everything. It’s flirty, fun, chic, boho, cute, quirky. I had to have it. I had to wear it. And then the cowboy boots, that Midwest mark, even though I bought them in New York. And the city of Milan printed tights. And that purple Ted Baker bag that was the very first giveaway that I won. A lot of my clothes tell a story. What story do your clothes tell about you?

В поисках вечернего света, я осознала, что мой блог – это способ само выражения, это то, через что я нахожу себя. Я снова влюблена в винтаж. И мне кажется в этот раз у нас все серьезно.

Это платье = это все. Флирт, шик, красота, моя странность и моя страсть. Я обязана была его купить. Я не могла не одеть его. Ковбойские сапоги – клеймо Миннесоты, хотя и куплены они были в Нью-Йорке. На колготках – Милан. Сиреневая сумка от Ted Baker – приз в самом первом конкурсе, который я выиграла. Я рассказываю истории через стиль. А вы?

  6. Blogging has definitely been my self expression and exploration avenue as well – my style changes a lot, I’ve always loved vintage but have been more on the boho side lately, who knows. I love the vintage look on you though 🙂

    • BeingZhenya says:

      Thank you! I am curious to see how your style develops!

      Thank you Beth! So glad you’ve joined our Thursday adventures!

  8. Great post! I love how you think about blogging… and I have been opting for more of my vintage pieces lately too… partially why I wanted to participate in Thrift Style Thursday with you! I think Vintage clothes tell a story, well, all clothes do and that’s why it’s so exciting. I love hearing people’s stories behind the clothes vs. how cute they are. I can see how cute your clothes are, but hearing stories makes me smile!

    • BeingZhenya says:

      Thank you, Rachel! Maybe that’s why I am so attached to my stuff, lol?

  9. I love this dress, it looks gorgeous on you! And the way the sun is behind you makes for beautiful pictures!
