Fall has been incredible this year. It’s been so nice and warm here lately, and I am hoping and praying the winter will hold off for as long as possible. Yes, I am looking forward to Christmas, I love this weather.

Today I am sharing another LATTORI dress with you, this one is probably my favorite. The soft velvet flowers, the burnt orange, the incredible flare of the skirt. This is fall in a dress.

I hope you are enjoying every last bit of fall wherever you are. Please join our weekly link up and help us spread the word!

Fall Smells Like Vintage

A few weeks ago we shot some amazing pieces for Alacloth’s ASOS and ETSY stores. She is by far my favorite vintage seller of all, and I can always rely on her to find me something specific.

Having read this recent interview with Bill Cunningham, I started thinking about blogging and fashion industry as a whole. And while I still want to pursue a career as a buyer, I think it’s time to make this blog more unique and more me. Kind of that weird quirky style I used to have. I was so inspired that I even filmed a refashion video for you!

I had my first group presentation and my first midterm this week, and that’s why there will be way less posts on here, and way more pictures on Instagram, but I am very excited about Adam Lippes for Target collaboration that’s coming up at the end of the week, so I think I’ll feature that, and go spend my hard-earned college student dollars on more buffalo plaid!

Meanwhile I am also on a hunt for a garment steamer. I heard there is one at Goodwill by my house 😉

Floral Fall Trend

Blogging is an interesting and weird thing. We go online, write a post, upload some photos, create a SEO title and put in some keywords. Then we share it on social media. Sometimes we share a lot, sometimes way too much. But then you meet people who share your interests and passions, you make friends, you attend events. And somehow in the end it all makes sense, so we keep doing it.

And while you are contemplating your existence now, I am sharing my favorite part about transitional seasons – fall floral trend, that is until the first snow falls.

Autumn in August

The past two days have been a welcome fall preview in Minneapolis. The leather jacket came out, the hoodie made it’s appearance, denim leggings didn’t seem like too much or too hot or too anything… I am so excited for the rain and 60 degrees, but I am even more excited for school to start. Sam and I are going to campus on Thursday to hang out, visit the St Paul campus, because Sam has never been there, walk along the river, and get my books and planner (I really feel like my life has been in chaos without one). We are also looking forward to going to Boom Island Park!

Minnetonka Orchards

About a week ago my friend Kara and I went to Minnetonka Orchards, between hot cider and hay rides, we managed to explore the corn maze, make friends with the sheep and take a whole lot of pictures. Growing up I never had an opportunity to go to an orchard like this, mostly because we don’t do that in Russia, so I was trying to catch up. The highlight of my day there was being called a walking page out of Anthropologie catalog, definitely made my day! I’m going to keep walking 😉

Zhenya’s News and Random Observations

Last week I saw Wayne Wilderson at Macy’s, and even though no one believed me, I tweeted him and what do you know? That was him 🙂 Made my Saturday!

 

Fall crept up on me, like something that creeps up on you, anyways, when did it become fall? I seriously thought I had till September 20…

 

But the sunsets are becoming a pretty pink and purple:

 

I also scored some shoes at Marshall’s yesterday, both pairs only cost me $12.50 🙂 That’s what I call a “better than a thrift store deal”

 

I am going to be one tall Russian in these 🙂

Also, here is what I have been obsessively listening to these past few days:

I am having a frustrating day today, and it’s not even 8.30 am. Please send me some positive energy everyone, sorry I am being such a sucker, but families are hard :/

Love,
