Fall is officially her! Even though the nights are much cooler, Californians do not need to put their summer items away. We have another month or so till we pull out our turtleneck sweaters and oversized coats. Until the time comes I will share two items you absolutely must have to transition your closet into Fall. I have mentioned a wide belt trend in some of my recent posts. Today I will give you tips on how to choose and rock one like a pro. In general, a belt is

The fashion world is a never-ending cycle of remixing old styles in new interpretations. The ruffled pants and sleeves are no exception. We tend to see this romantic embellishment on blouses and dresses, but now the detail has shimmed its way down to trousers. Therefore, we might have doubts when styling such bottoms. But I will show you how to rock this style like a pro. There is something amazing about the trend, ruffles are edgy, feminine and sexy all the same time. First of all, I suggest making the

New York Fashion Week is in full swing. It is by far the best fashion week out in the US. The biggest fashionistas are roaming the streets and shows of NYFW right now. Even though I wish I was there rocking those street-style looks with them, I am happy to be able to watch all of my favorite live stream shows, and identify the hottest trends. NYFW  is also famous for some of the best street-style fashion trends. If you are not there to witness it, you can easily follow

I have to admit, olive green and green in any shade is one of my favorite colors to wear. It is a great color to wear for brunettes, blondes and girls with darker skin tones. Good news, this color is hot this coming fall and below I list how you can rock it in stride. It a bonus that this shade never goes out of style. The hue of this green is a perfect color, reminiscent of the fall foliage pending fall season.   Rooted in the military history, olive green is one of the most timeless and versatile

In the Russian Orthodox Church, a child’s christening is considered to be one of the seven sacraments that is necessary after birth — being Russian Orthodox, this step is very important to me and my family and a way to give a child the protection of God. Traditionally, this process has to be held on the 40th day after the child is born, but we did it later as we were waiting for our family members to gather for this special day. My parents, my aunt and my cousin flew in for the beautiful event. We also had Andy’s family and some other important people present.

It is no secret that red is a hot color! It is one of those colors that when picked in the right shade will look good on every skin tone. For darker skinned brunettes like myself, a brighter, vibrant red is the way to go. A red dress has incredible style capabilities that makes it appropriate for a wide variety of different occasions. It is one of the chicest garments a woman can own. Whether it’s a romantic dinner or a fun night out, a red dress packs a major style punch and can

As a new mom when you find products you love you just want to rave about them. My Pivot Travel system is one of the better purchases this time around. I have been using it for six weeks now since the birth of my little angel, Kai. It has proven to be a great purchase on so many levels. From day to day errands, to traveling, to mini staycations like our recent park day in a neighboring city. The Evenflo stroller has served me well! We decided to venture for

Today I am sharing a striking romper look. It is exciting to finally share an outfit post. As I am getting my body and somewhat of a schedule back, you will be seeing more outfit inspirations from me. Todays look is a winner on so many levels. My postpartum body is far from being where I want it to be.  You have to give yourself time after birthing a baby and choose items that complement the new shape. A colorful romper like this one is an ideal garment to conceal

I am finally here to share my birth story and a few looks I styled on my last two days of pregnancy. I had the pleasure of working with a very talented photografer Alena Melnik from Vasilisa Photography. She captured the very last moments of my big and beautiful belly in her own creative way and I am so happy to have these memories now. Taking pictures at 40.5 weeks was the last thing on my agenda, but having these now is priceless. As the sayings go you forget the hardships of

As I am sitting here counting days and minutes until the arrival, I realize this might be my last post until I get back into the swing of things again. Since shooting outfits is honestly the last thing on my agenda at 40 weeks pregnant, I am happy to share how I am styling the nursery for our little man to come. When we bought this house, the guest room came painted with these thick blue stripes. Even though a great paint job, I was not sure what to think about them at
