That's TSAR last season

I think I'm a little in love with Russia.

Now, if you know me, you'd know I love snow but I detest the cold - so I actually think I'm more in love with the idea of Russia. From their onion domes, babushka dolls to the rich history of the Tsars, the revolution, communism and so much more! It really is a fascinating place.

I spent a good deal of my childhood watching the Anastasia movie and being in love with Dimitri (my first crush and yes, I am aware he is a cartoon character) which only fuelled my love for the country and its myths even more (and it's an awesome movie). Also there was an extravagance of the time that (granted their extravagances were arguably one of the reasons the people of Russia rebelled and killed the Tsar and his family...) are the sort that don't exist today. Seriously. Look up Faberge Eggs if you want to get an idea of the wealth and opulence these people had at their disposal (I'm totally jealous - aside from the whole being murdered part).

(Seriously if you haven't seen the film go see it now. Go.)

So because of this love and because it's winter I'm posting a Tsarist-Russia theme photo editorial which is just so beautiful it makes me want every single thing the model wears! Which is exactly what a good photo editorial should do!!

My last word will probably be "oops" or "crap".

Okay so in case you haven't noticed I've been a little absent from this blog for a little while because...I accidentally killed the internet by downloading too much (hence the "oops" and the "crap"). So, to compensate, I'm going to try to post something every day for the rest of this week to make up for it!

Starting off the bat in a photo editorial from Marie Claire Australia (circa September 2013) which features one of those things I always love to see on people but actually don't really have the guts to wear myself too often!


Seriously, feathered pants? They are so ridiculous I'd never wear them but I want them to sit in my wardrobe for me to admire how wonderful they are. 
(Only half joking)
