Woman in the red boots

Old cinema is endless source of inspiration for modern fashionistas, who don’t want to be trend victims but masters of their own style.

Look at Catherine Deneuve’ character outfit: it looks relaxed, effortlessly chic and timeless. Guess, what is the title of this movie? The Woman In The Red Boots / La femme aux bottes rouges (1974)!

Bright long boots help to remind people that you’re woman during the season of coats, sweaters and jeans.

Here is my version of red boots outfit.

My skin saviour Azelaic acid

Few years ago I woke up and saw a red glaring pimple on my nose. I deafeated it but next day a new one was there and endless fight began. Each time I tried a new product (no matter, expensive or affordable) I was getting more desperate. It seemed I got the most stubborn pimples in the whole world and soon or late my poor nose would turn into red clown antic.

Lucky my story has a happy ending – I got pharmacy product called Skinoren and it’ active ingredient Azelaic acid saved my skin.

Cosmetics with Azelaic acid is a good chose for many of those who has oily acne prone skin.

Here are 3 products to check: PCA SkinAcne Gel (it contains 2% Salicylic acid too), The Ordinary’ Azelaic Acid Suspension 10% and SesdermaAzelaic RU Facial Serum.

P.S. I won’t be tired to repeat again and again: what is good for me, can be disaster for you.

Never apply any new products without approval of your dermatologist if you have severe form of acne.

Knot of Pearls

Get bored with your pearl strand? Time to tied the knot!

Here is Googie Withers in Night and the City (1950) for an inspiration.

Googie Withers’ character wears black & white pearl necklace, but you can add more colours to your outfit with Pearls of Joy(left), Mastoloni Viva Tahitian Pearl Strand Necklace and Honora (right) strands.

By the way, pearl necklaces are multipurpose:

Honora’ lilac strand with or without knot will look cute with Morgan De Toired evening Asymetrical Belted Bustier and every day Plain Straight-Cut Jumper with Boat Neck. Reiss grey Albert Skirt and Chie Mihara vintage inspired Julian shoes will be stylish partners for bustier and jumper.

Back to USSR or Russian movie star in swimming suit

Many people think that sex appeal was strictly forbidden in Soviet cinema. Well, it’s only half of the truth: sensual scences were there, but they were served as delicious desserts in very small portions.

And sexy actresses and actors were never called «sexy» but «attractive».

Soviet movie star Irina Skobtseva looks very seductive in swimming suit in good old movie Ordinary Man (1956).

No doubt, dark bandeau one-piece swimming suit is the perfect choice for girls who want to highlight their feminity (and for those who want to hide few extra inches of the belly).

Here are some modern variations for an inspiration.
