BestBuyHolidayShoppingDestination

This holiday season I really want to talk about something other than clothes. So I will be partnering with Best Buy, and bringing you a few tech posts to inspire you to get on your nerdy side this year.

Even though I am super busy with classes and exams this semester, also trying to fit blogging in between too, and taking outfit photos for my Instagram, I still like my Netflix and Hulu. And even though we have replaced gin with sitcoms, TV is a great way to destress and catch a few laughs.

I still like Once Upon a Time. That’s probably the only show I have been in to for the past couple of years. The new favorite is The 100, with a couple actors from Battlestar Galactica. Nothing else has really stood out to  me. What shows do you watch these days?

I am also excited for all the holiday movies that will be airing soon. Wouldn’t it be great to watch them on an OLED TV?

Sweatshirts in Style – Olivia Palermo Inspired

OliviaPalermoSweatshirtWhiteSkirt

 

So while we are getting more and more inches of snow by the hour, let me show you the look inspired by Olivia Palermo from a couple weeks ago. I wore my outfit to the Minnesota Blog Conference in October. I love the conference, mainly because I get to meet new people and reconnect with my old friends. And I can’t wait for next year already!

Style It: Midi Skirt

2014-10-29 06.34.37

My new favorite midi skirt by Joa is one of the most tactile textural pieces that I’ve owned. Also one of the few grey ones. The thick polyester makes it perfect for chilly fall days, and the coming winter. And of course the polka dot pattern. I will be honest this pattern has grown on me over the past few months. Here it’s very subtle, and I really like that.

Happy Halloween everyone! I hope you are all dressing up and having a party this weekend! I’ll have some pics on my Instagram today and tomorrow! So make sure to check those out.

Happy Weekend! Fridays are now indeed my FriYAYs since college started. And even though I enjoy school, I still like my weekends more.

I have been looking for something new and different to wear, something to stand out in! That’s why this re:named ensemble is perfect! Besides someone on Instagram has already called this flashy ;) Mission accomplished!

I especially like this outfit because, even though it is a crop top, it covers in all the right places, and my belly button isn’t showing (I’m like Taylor Swift when it comes to showing my belly button). And it was so easy to style for fall – all I had to do was add tights, cardigan or a jacket (this is actually thrifted! I am still thrifting in case anyone is wondering ;) )

Minnetonka Orchards

minnetonkaorchards

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 ;)

Coffee Table Fashion

2014-09-17 07.31.01

I am always looking for new books to add to my coffee table or any other flat surface in my living room. You know, the kind that you can look through on a rainy day and doze off. The kind that inspires you. The kind, that like a good friend has few words, but understands.

So here are some of my choices for your coffee table ;) Enjoy!

Layers of Fall #ThriftStyleThursday

fallaccessories

Fall has always been about layers for many, and I am no exception. There is something about cozying up in a favorite sweater or scarf. It’s to the point of emotional attachment almost. And I don’t even want to try and explain it.

When fall becomes an accessory, you know you are doing it right!

It’s been a tough September for the Thrift Style Thursday group, but after everyone has reconsidered, we came back together, maybe not such a large group as before, but we are determined to bring you style and love every Thursday! Even if it’s not all thrifted ;)

Courtney Kerr on Fashion, Blogging and RewardStyle

Thursday after class I was in a rush. But it wasn’t to get home and study for the next midterm. I was on my way to Macy’s Southdale to interview Courtney Kerr and attend the fashion show after. Courtney and I talked about blogging, rewardStyle, social media, coffee and makeup! She is absolutely amazing in person, and reminded me of another favorite TV personality – Chelsea Handler.

Just click play to listen to the interview:

The Macy’s Fashion Rocks event that followed was absolutely amazing. Courtney is a great host, and made the looks so relatable. She followed the current trends: menswear and rocker chic, and gave helpful style advice to the audience after. Needless to say, I did some shopping afterwards, and if you follow me on Instagram, you will probably see the looks before anyone else ;)

Everything is changing and everything is constantly moving. I can’t believe I’ve already been in school for a month! University has definitely pushed and stretched me in more ways than I could’ve ever imagined. But one thing remained the same – I still love vintage and clothes, and styling my daily outfits. Probably even more now, than ever.

I have told the story of the jacket in my Instagram post yesterday, but I will share it again here. And if you are a thrifter, or a vintage shopper you will understand what I went through to get it.

I was at Steeple People on Franklin and Lyndale, actually trying to find someone new to talk to (for a class assignment), when I noticed a girl find this jacket. She actually asked one of the store volunteers to get it down for her, because it was hanging up high under the ceiling. Of course now I wanted it too. It was a perfect jacket that I wanted before I even knew I needed or wanted it. After about 30 minutes she decided against it, and set it back down. I guess I just got lucky this time, because I am literally living in it this fall. And just in case you are wondering, it is a wool Talbots jacket in light grey, the softest, most comfortable thing I’ve worn in a long time.

In this look I wore it over a vintage black dress, paired with a scarf I got from Popsugar Must-have box, and the black boots I got for Christmas two years ago, that my father-in-law brought from Germany.

I am wearing it again today, so make sure you follow me on Instagram!

#EnvisionMPLS Fall 2014

With MN fashion week in full swing, I absolutely had to post about Envision. It took place last Friday and once again was held at the Orchestra Hall, which, if you ask me, is a perfect venue for this event! It started with an inspiration message from Tricia Khutoretsky who reminded everyone present that “We are not New York, we are not Miami, we are Minneapolis…”

Once again the show was a mix of local designer looks and local boutiques.  The opportunity and ability to see what’ was on the runway is definitely a plus. Aldo provided all the footwear, and Tess + Tricia accessories were a pleasant surprise.

It was interesting to see what the designers came up with, the show was new and different and much better than the spring Envision. No blasts from the past on the runway this time!

Knits by Mary Pranica kicked off the show, and, being especially passionate about that craft I was really excited to see the collection!

Cocoon by Elizabeth Geisler had a couple great coats, mostly along the oversized, blanket coat trend line.

Velvet moon was very boho, but very dark at the same time. The Black and white dress that you first see in the video was definitely a favorite of mine.

Kjurek and plaid went hand in hand. Why do I always think of coffee when I see Kjurek? ;) But that last oversized flannel coat is everything!

Cliche put a nice 90’s spin on their collection, one of the models walking down the runway could barely hold in her laughter.

Ellie Hottinger had amazing oversized pieces that if I had a choice, I’d wear every day, because comfort > style in my college book these days.

And then Samantha Rei’s IsabelleEtColette appeared on the runway. I have to admit, I’ve been following the creation of Samantha’s collection on Instagram and Facebook, and the whole idea of the Fox and the Sparrow, the post cards, the story telling. Samantha, you should write a book. For a designer to go practically broke, but finish a collection, you are amazing and inspiring.

Lindsey Hopkins played with neoprene and Japan inspired theme in her collection. Made me regret giving up my neoprene skirt!

Emily Trevor’s collection reminded me of a vintage Haut Coutire Dior dress that I recently saw in one of my classes. Even though it seemed heavy, it was incredibly well thought through.

George Moskal was someone whose collection I was really looking forward to seeing. He hasn’t shown any of his designs for a while, so him coming back was a needed change.

I immensely enjoyed Envision, seeing old friends and meeting new ones, or meeting people I’ve met on social media, and putting avatars to faces or faces to avatars.

As far as my look – it was all thrifted. After the show I knew I couldn’t make it back to the car in my wedges, so I took them off and walked barefoot through Loring Park, planning on using my shoes for self-defense, which, luckily for me was unnecessary.
