Style Inspiration - Russian Dolls: Part I of III


This winter has been the longest, coldest, most unbearable winter I have ever had in my life. Nevertheless, this year I vowed to think more positively and to find inspiration even in the seemingly saddest of places. 

My husband and I only have one free day a week (if ever), and with the temps being subzero for most of the winter, it was a galling task forcing ourselves to go outside. The first day we tried to take these shots, it was 0 degrees (-20 windchill) so of course we thought, "not so bad, lets do it!". Shockingly, it was so cold, the lens froze up. Yes, even the camera gave up.

My inspiration for this series of looks is borrowed from Mother Russia. A little bit of folkloric texture, a faux mink fur stole, and lots of gold chain jewelry for modern touch... all the while looking as glam as possible in freezing weather.

Current local temperatures:

Minneapolis: -8 F
Siberia: -26 F

Minneapolis wins!

Please visit again later this week for Part II and III of my Russian inspired looks.

Cheers!
