Look of the Day: Loafers + Answers

March 12, 2012
 I’m wearing: 
Sweater – Zara
Leggings – Topshop
Bag – River Island
Loafers – River Island (similar ones here and here)
Hey guys!
I finally came up with the answers to all the questions you asked in this post. Sorry it took me so long, I’m an awful procrastinator when it comes to writing, so please bear with me :)
I’ve decided to group some of your questions and also answer the ones that I often get in emails and comments. 

Beauty and fitness

What’s your height and weight?
The questions that I get asked almost every day :) My height is 173 cm, my weight is around 51 kg.

Do you have that amazing shape by nature (I mean high metabolism) or you go to the gym regularly? What do you to stay fit?
Unfortunately I don’t have a lot of tips for you guys on how to get fit, I’ve always been thin (sometimes even too thin) no matter what and how much I ate and I almost never drink water. However I do workout to keep my muscles toned, my routine usually consists of going to the gym twice a week, running in the mornings, cycling, swimming and tennis in the spring and summertime.

Hair care routine
I guess my hair routine is similar to that of any girl with long hair.
I wash my hair every two days and use dry shampoo whenever I need to freshen up. My favorite hair products are from Kerastase and Bonacure. I never apply conditioner to the roots and often leave it in the hair without rinsing. This way my hair is protected during the day and its ends seem to split less. Before applying the conditioner I rinse my hair with cold water to make it shinier.
I try to cut at least 5 cm of hair every three month, I prefer hot scissors since they help me to avoid split ends.
My hair is naturally straight, so I’m not doing any relaxing and try not to blow-dry it. Also, this is my natural color and I’ve never dyed my hair.

Did you ever have some troubles with your skin? like almost every teenager has pores and acne.
I never had acne as a teenager and my skin was fine up to the moment I started using foundations that tend to clog pores and cause breakouts. I found a way to deal with this, the key is proper cleansing, exfoliation and moisturizing.My favorite skin care products are from Laroche-Posay and Clinique.

My blog, fashion and inspiration

What is your single favorite item in your closet?
It’s impossible to name one, however I do love all my leather pieces and wear them to death. I love practical clothes that I can wear many times and hate the pieces hanging in my closet that can only be worn in one way. Luckily the amount of such clothes is decreasing over time as I’m becoming more proficient at shopping :)

What trend do you hope goes away and never returns?
Pajama suits and ugly prints.

Who’s your favorite fashion designer?
I love Isabel Marant, Alexander Wang, Haider Ackermann, Helmut Lang, Kurt Geiger and many other designers, whose pieces I can’t wait to get my hands on.

What’s your favorite fashion magazine?
It has to be French Vogue, but since I don’t always have the chance to get it, all other Vogues will do :)

What and who is your inspiration? What are your favorite fashion blogs?
I am always inspired by the style of Christine Centenera and Taylor Tomasi Hill, but frankly, most of the time fashion bloggers are far more inspiring than celebrities and editors. I am a huge fan of Sandra Hagelstam, Aimee Song, Elin Kling, Ivania Carpio.

Where do you buy your clothes often? What is your favorite brand?
I get most of my clothes from Zara, Asos, H&M and Topshop. Even if I was a millionaire I would still shop there!

Why did you start blogging in the first place?
To be able to reach out to the fashion community, to share my thoughts and inspirations ands just to have fun :)

How many sponsors do you have? How did you get them? How much do you make (money wise, or clothes gifted?)? How soon from the start of your blog did you get sponsors?
For me blogging is not about getting free stuff and advertising brands. I am often contacted by clothes retailers that offer me items to wear in my outfit posts, but I only cooperate with the brands that I like and will never wear something that isn’t my style just because it’s free. Sorry, I’m not able to give you any numbers just because I never counted and don’t think I ever will, hope you understand.


How many languages do you know? Do you speak Russian?
As an interpreter I work with English, Russian and Ukrainian. I also speak bad German and bad French, I’m planning to continue studying these languages in the future.
Which languages are important to know as interpreter, in your opinion? Is it better to choose common languages like Spanish or ‘rare’ languages like Danish?
I think every interpreter must know English as it can help with clues to other European languages. Every language is of high demand on the interpreting market, so even if you are a “rare” language interpreter, as long as you’re proficient, you’ll have enough work.

How did you start with this profession (studies, first job, etc.)?
I’ve been doing freelance translations since I was 14. I have a master’s degree in translation and I opened a small translations company about 3 years ago, all of my clients are international.


Do you have a boyfriend?
Who else would take all those outfit pics? ;) I do, we’ve been together for almost three years now.

How would you describe yourself in five words?
Energetic, passionate, inventive, adventurous, independent.

Where would you live if you had to move?
Right now I’m thinking Barcelona, but there’s still so much I have to see.

How can you afford all the new clothes?
As I said,  I’m a working girl, plus I get a lot of gifts :)
What is your favorite childhood memory?
I guess all the memories connected with my grandmother that passed away when I was about 7. We used to have so much fun together. 

If you have any other question, post them in the comment section.

    Just discovered your blog and I have to say I adore your style.

    It is sometimes a bit too “good” (I like a rather edgy style sometimes) for my taste, but still really nice combinations and colour schemes, especially for casual everyday-outfits!
