London Fashion Week 2012

I know that NewYork Fashion Week has already gone but I didn`t write a word about it. The truth is I don`t have much time unfortunately! But I can`t miss London Fashion Week as England is a very special place for me: it`s all about it`s atmosphere, style, British culture, accents, the mix of traditions and innovations, nature, people and architecture. And I believe the designers who present their masterpieces during LFW have been definitely influenced by everything from the list. LFW has already started on the 17th of February. Everything about the designers, schedule, exhibitions you can find here.
I`ll post photos with commentaries about the collections and pieces that caught my eye.

This trend is not old!

It`s terribly cold these days in Russia. So, I dream of spring when I can where coats and trenches, heels and ankle-high boots.Last season maxi skirts were really popular and I`m going to continue wearing them this spring-summer again!

Actually I like the combination of maxi skirt and chunky/overstuffed/bagged/warm sweater or jumper. Because usually the skirts are sewed with light fabrics and the sweaters are always knitted and as a result, it is a mix of structures. And I think it`s still feminine-looking. If you share my thoughts, here are some ideas for you:

Music Inspiration - Welcome!

Music has always been an inspiration for me. I can`t go anywhere without my IPod actually. Music can make me laugh or dance or I can listen to a song and feel myself the happiest person in the world for just a few minutes. And it can make me feel sad and sometimes I even cry as well. Anyway it raises very strong emotions and changes my mood.
As for my music taste - I like different styles of music. And in spite of the fact that I can`t sing (unfortunately!!!!) and I can`t play any musical instrument (unfortunately) I can admit that music is a kind of really important part of my everyday life as without it the life would be too boring.
''Music Inspiration''  is a column in my blog that will tell you what inspire me this or that day. And I`ll try to update it as much as possible. Enjoy!
Hope you`ll like it!
Here is the first playlist!

Музыка всегда для меня была вдохновением. Вообще, я никуда не выхожу без моего I Poda. Музыка может заставить меня смеяться и танцевать, или слушая какую-то песню, я могу на несколько минут ощутить себя самым счастливым человеком на свете. Точно также она может меня застваить грустить или даже плакать. В любом случае, музыка вызывает во мне сильные эмоции и меняет моё настроение.
Что касается моего музыкального вкуса- Я люблю разные музыкальные стили. И не смотря на то что петь я не умею ( к огромному сожалению) и играть на музыкальных инструментах тоже (тоже жаль), я  могу утверждать, что музыка является важной частью моей жизни, ведь без неё было бы слишком скучно.
  ''Music Inspiration'' - это рубрика в моём блоге, из которой вы узнаете что меня вдохновило в тот или иной день. Я постараюсь обновлять её как можно чаще. Наслаждайтесь! Надеюсь вам понравится.

Several days ago I discovered for myself Ed Sheeran. His music and lyrics are unbearably sweet and touching. He really makes me smile and cry. I still can`t understand how talented he is and how he can creates such wonderful things.

Несколько дней назад я открыла для себя Эда Ширана. Его музыка и слова его песен просто невыносимо милые и трогательныею Он на самом деле заставляет меня и плакать, и смеяться. Я до сих пор не могу понять как он талантлив и какие прекрасные вещи он создаёт.
