Elena Perminova’s New Earrings

Elena Perminova’s New Earrings

Privet Matryoshkas!  I decided to do some quickstyle Instagram browsing tonight and I just had to check out what’s going on in Elena Perminova’s fashionable world. I feel like her IG pictures have really made up for her Fashion Week Style that  in my opinion channeled the 90’s fused with the Matrix Reloaded- and fairytales? Now let’s talk about her incredible bow and pearl earrings. I have no idea who makes them, but I’m definitely swooning at the sight of them. I’m also loving the look she’s pulling off in her black, form fitted dress,- it reminds me of Olga Seryabkina in the Serebro music video for Gun; which I’ve included below! (Olga is one of the singers from my favourite overtly sexual Russian trio, pop groups Serebro)  Continue reading “Elena Perminova’s New Earrings”

Spring Trends & Must Haves (Psst Denim Is On The List)

Spring Trends & Must Haves (Psst Denim Is On The List)

This spring there’s a lot of trends to keep up with! Expect to see the classics this season like florals, and romantic ruffles. You know one of the seasons hottest selling dress comes from Proenza Schouler who decided to re-interpret the ruffle trend by drawing from Spanish elements- Traje de flamenca perhaps? You’ll also see that the mule shoe is back in, this time as a flat. While blouses and dresses will have a higher than average neckline. But if that’s not enough to confuse your outfit abilities to mix and match without a flaw- there’s even some 70’s inspired suede to deal with. So, with the designers deciding to throw a multitude of stuff at us, here is a Spring trend report, broken down and made simple for you. Plus a few Spring must haves I’ve picked out.

Elena Perminova’s Latest Fashion Week Style

Elena Perminova’s Latest Fashion Week Style

I feel as if I haven’t made a post about Elena Perminova in ages, and I’m sure some of you might be missing her style moments around here. The Russian trendsetter, and mom of three isn’t one to play around with hairstyle or makeup, you’ll notice that her hair is always done in a simple manner, or that her makeup is minimalistic, anddd I think she does this because she likes to let her outfits speak for themselves. I, on the other hand would want to be playing with my hair and makeup for each look, just because it’s fun to be able to change your looks, especially when you’re wearing gorgeous clothes. Anyways that’s enough of my opinion! Enjoy the post, you’ll see some style that varies from Christian Dior, to Elie Saab.

10 Brands That Slay Street Style

10 Brands That Slay Street Style

What do we look for in designer fashion labels? Is it their relevance, or the way they make a statement? When fashion week rolls around, the concrete catwalk is almost as equally as important as the runway. The streets set the trends. The quirky, and vibrant outfits of the risk takers are flaunted in our faces, while the style makers will be setting trends that so many of us will be inspired from, and interpret. It’s no secret that there’s just a few brands out there that continue to roll out those hot list items that we continue to crave. These top 10 brands know how to market love at first sight, and they definitely know how to slay. Continue reading “10 Brands That Slay Street Style”

Elena Perminova’s Sweater Dress Inspiration

Elena Perminova’s Sweater Dress Inspiration
Hey everyone, it’s Casual Sunday once again! & today’s look incorporates one main element: The sweater dress. I have a sweater addiction, and if I could get away with it, I’d probably wear a sweater to every function, event, dinner- etc. So this might explain why I’m favouring this look that Elena perminova wore. I’ve featured this look by Elena on my blog before, but thought it deserved a true Casual Sunday spot. I also put in a few of my top sweater dress choices, and the links of where they came from below.

Elena Perminova + H&M X Balmain

Elena Perminova + H&M X Balmain

Hey everyone! I hope you are making room in your closets because the Balmain X H&M collaborative collection is coming out November 5th. There has been a lot of chatter surrounding the latest collaboration for H&M x Balmain- involving leaked images of Kendall Jenner, and Gigi Hadid showing off  “Lots of pieces in this collab.”(the very exact words from the woman who “leaked the images”). Anyways, I’m not all that interested in seeing Gigi or Kendall showing off the Balmain goods, instead I’m loving the behind the scenes images of Elena Perminova’s photoshoot with Elle Russia wearing HMBALMATION.

Elena Perminova + Isabel Marant

Elena Perminova + Isabel Marant

Hey everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve put some effort into coming up with a Casual Sunday post. If you’ve noticed my last one was very “summery/nautical”, and I need to conform to all things fall! So this Casual Sunday post is more about how to do “parisienne casual”, or at least the way Elena Perminova does casual when she’s in paris. The look Elena is wearing is all by Isabel Marant (I adore Isabel Marant’s knitwear & there’s a part of me that’s still upset that I couldn’t get any of her pieces from her H&M collaboration).  To break the look down further it’s essentially a cable knit sweater, structured leggings, ankle boots, a handbag and sunglasses. Each piece falls within the neutral palette. P.S Anyone can pull off this style, even if you don’t have the wallet for Isabel Marant. Just look for an oversized cable knit, and partially tuck it into some high wasted trousers, or structured leggings and away you go, you’re ready for fall you gorgeous girl.

Elena Perminova’s Top Style Moments

Elena Perminova’s Top Style Moments

Elena Perminova is the coup de coeur of my style crushes; She’s a Chanel ambassador, Jet & trend setter, mother of three, model, a philanthropist- she’s the first to create an online auction via instagram aptly named S.O.S by Elena Perminova (Which helps to cover the cost of children’s medical expenses) and is married to the media mogul- Alexander Lebedev. What doesn’t Elena have under her repertoire? Today, I thought it would be fun to put up a few of her top style moments, which is never easy to narrow down – some of the images are of her appearing ultra-femme, to her take on a great Gatsby look, and of course there is always a little bit of androgyny to be found.  Continue reading “Elena Perminova’s Top Style Moments”
