Utopian Eyewear

denim-outifit-minneapolis-fashion-blogger denim-on-denim-look-being-zhenya Having been taking back roads to work for the past couple of weeks, I noticed a development, a big cluster of identical houses, and town homes tucked away behind Excelsior Boulevard. And for some reason it reminded me of Pleasantville. Even though the connection is completely off, now that I think of this whole establishment, it’s more of a Zamyatin “We” scenario. Anyways, last weekend Sam and I walked around and explored those few blocks of identical living.

It’s also this time of year, when sunglasses become more of a necessity than an accessory. And I am shopping for new eyewear. There are so many options, like these by Ray-Ban – from colorful to mirrored, I know they’ll have my eyes covered. rayban-sunglasses   I also love these Tory Burch ones, good cat eyes are really hard to find! Tory-Burch-sunglasses And, finally, I couldn’t leave this eclectic, futuristic and altogether out of this world eyewear by 3.1 Philip Lim unnoticed! 3.1-philip-lim-sunglasses Which do you like the most? Which ones would you wear? What shape sunglasses do you prefer?

Уже несколько недель подряд мы ездим на работу обочными путями. Все потому, что везде ремонт, и все перекопано! И конечно же я не могла не заметить район, состоящий из почти идентичных домов. Мне сразу вспомнился фильм Pleasantville. Хоть я и понимаю, что тут все напоминает книгу Замятина “Мы”, с ассоциациями не поспоришь. В прошлые выходные мы с Сэмом решили обойти эти утопические кварталы.

Наступает лето, а значит солнечные очки переходят из разряда аксессуаров, в разряд вещей первой необходимости! И я присматриваю себе новые. Очень понравились очки от Ray-Ban, особенно зеркальные. Отличные очки есть и у Tory Burch, хороший кошачий глаз найти очень сложно, а в этой коллекции у дизайнера несколько пар. И, напоследок, я обратила внимание на 3.1 Philip Lim – эклектика и футуризм в одном флаконе.

Какие очки понравились вам? Какие бы вы надели? Какую форму очков вы предпочитаете?

Today’s Thrift Style Thursday post is literally fresh off the press! I just took these photos! So if you want to know what I currently look like – there you go! Minus the boots, and plus a blanket!

The polar vortex was merciful to me again, and I scored another day off. I really need a break from the whole “Ms. Zhenya…..” gig! (I am a teacher for those of you who didn’t know)

When it comes to lace, I personally believe that it’s hard to pull of. There are very few pieces that can actually be 100% made out of lace and NOT make you look like a giant doily.  In fact this dress is the only lace piece I have in my wardrobe.

My goal today was to show off a look, that is based around lace, but where lace isn’t the center of attention, and is concealed. So I threw a newly thrifted Chico’s sweater over this Urban Outfitters dress. Added a couple accessories and viola!

You may notice my Ted Baker bag. Well we are in a love-hate relationship here. The bag was the very first prize I ever won in a Giveaway! It was absolutely amazing, because I won it all the way from Russia, and it was mailed to Sam’s house. I knew I was going to marry him at that point, so I could trust him with a handbag! But I haven’t gotten much use out of it, and it’s been in the closet for a couple of years. It’s also lost some of it shape! But I am determined to make it work this season. I am bringing my Ted Baker bag back!

Feel free to check other girls’ posts and join us! We welcome you with open arms 😉
