Russian men are the ugliest? Really?

Time to time some tabloids publish atricles where Russian men are branded as one of the most ugliest creatures in the world. Well, they know better, but in my humble opinion, persentage of beautiful and average people is the same in each and every nation.
And here some Russian men who’s appearence you can hardly call plain.

Memories about life in the USSR and retro-outfit

In times of the Soviet Union for most of people it was very difficult to get latest fashion clothes and women had no other choice but to learn how to make something from nothing. From one hand such situation was very depressive from other it stimulated imagination and helped to develop your own designers skills and sense of style – each coin has 2 sides, right?
I remember when I was a child in 80ies in the USSR corduroy pants were in the list of the most desirable fashion things: if you got them you automatically join the club of stylish girls and boys.

Volcom‘s corduroy Wale Watching Pants, Zimmermann‘s Karmic Bell Sleeve Blouse, Chie Mihara‘s Zalena Brown shoes and Melinda Maria‘s big Sophie Pod Ring Gold Coral White CZ will make a pretty retro-outfit.

Each time I hear Frida Kahlo right away I see flower crown, thick eyebrows, big earrings and necklaces, shawls and long skirts. This great artist shows the difference between true style icon and brands hanger.

No need to wear all Frida’s stuff if you want to try her style: even one piece of her favorites will add some bohemian charm to your outfit.
