Few words about me

Hi, everybody! I’m Svetlana (Lana for short), fashion & beauty addict and I don’t have any slightest intention to get rid of this obsession. I’m a big fan of good old movies too.

My English is far from perfect so I apologize in advance for mistakes I’ll make.

My pinterest account is here.

Summer In Leather

I guess, Skiim‘s sleevless biker jacket Lucia and safari shorts Pamela, American West‘s Native Sun All Access Crossbody Bag, Bed Stu‘s sandals Sable Grey Mason and Varelli‘s leather bracelet Coco Chic Orange will look very cute on slim leggy girl.

Is it Chanel? No, not for me

Sinse very beginning legendary fashion house Chanel was an epitome of elegance and mature beauty, but recent compaigns ruined this image almost completely thanks to Karl Lagerfield’s collaborations kids of rich and famous.

Rounded shoulders and greasy hair: here it is Lily-Rose Depp – the modern face of Chanel N5 perfume. Does these photos look attractive? Well, I’ll just shut my mouth and show you vintage add. They’ll tell much more than my words.

Catherine Deneuve and model, which name unfortunately I don’t know, in the middle.

Karl, The Fashion Keiser, chose Willow Smith to promote Chanel’s eyewear

and Kaia Gerber to sell Chanel’s bags.

Were these decisions smart? Just guess how many girls of Willow’s and Kaia’s age can afford to buy this stuff and personaly I don’t think that daughters of Will Smith and Cindy Crowford will inspire women who’re more than 25 to run to boutiques to get these expensive accessories.
It’s very sad but Karl Lagerfeld is not the only one who’s killing fashion legends. In 2015 Ricardo Tisci hired Donatella Versace to present his AW collection for Givenchy. For me it’s a comlete nonsense when creative director of world famous fashion brand promotes other designer.

I’ll tell you more: it was an ugly nonsense for those who remember Audrey Hepburn – muse of Hubert de Givenchy.
In my opinion it’s better to close fashion house if you can’t preserve its essense making new collections, but who cares about my opinion?

If you’re in hippie mood

Jil Jil Stuart‘s Chrissy in classy dress with illusion of deep decolette will look even more attractive if you decorate it with Les GeorgettesManchette Solair bracelet, Bague Ibiza ring and jewellery bag Sacbijou Le Mini Rouille which you can use as a clutch and Pierre Hardy‘s Dani Slingback shoes.

Body Scrub + Body Oil = Intensive Therapy for Your Skin

Warm fabrics save us from cold but make our skin rough and dull. So before warm weather comes and you change your baggy clothes for revealing, thoroughly polish your skin with scrubs and feed it with nourishing oils.
