I'm truly sorry to anyone who reads this blog that i haven't posted in some time but it's not because i've forgotten about it but unfortunately there have been some family problems. But all is normal(well as normal as it gets)now and I'm happily back on my blog. Now to start things of i recently read Emma's blog and loved the new post(as i love all her posts). I go to a private school which means uniforms so no Back 2 School freakout I get to be a perfectly sane person and shop form my fall clothes! And of course it's mid-August and humid as a blowfish so of course opera gloves, booties and fur coats aren't exactly needed as of right now. As of right now I'm reading The Idiot by Fyodor Dostoevsky and it's quite good so far but i doubt it'll be the literary masterpieces of War and Peace & Anna Karenina or the quirky humor of the Master and the Margarita. All I have to say is Russians in the early 20th century were extremely fashionable. How I would love to wear a floor length dress walking down the nevsky so here are the pictures my dear countesses!


A lovely necklace from Net A Porter for all those want to be countesses who don't have access to the Romanovs jewels.
A black military inspired coat from shopbop because its oh so very Trotsky!
A jeweled cuff to go along with the first necklace big bauble for much less buck at shopbop.
Seeing as how we live in the 21st century not the 19th century you can't really walk everywhere in couture floor length gowns like below so this floor length concoction from shopbop will do
Gorgeous drop earring with rubies and pearls from Net A Porter a must have for everyone very classic

Finally a black and blue stoned necklace from Shopbop which you can wear to make your inner Russian princess shine.

And know my favorite part...if i was as rich as the Romanovs i would definitely buy these babies

A classic floor length black gown with a flared skirt and detailed sleeves is perfect for all those winter balls...from the genius Christian Lacroix Couture Collection
This pink confection with navy blue cape is ideal for those all those after dinner sleigh rides....again from Christian Lacroix
The perfect floor length gown for those afternoon picnics with your siginificant other....from Christian Lacroix(god was smiling upon the fashion world when he created this man)

A floor length black gown and white feather trimmed cape from the Kaiser Karl Lagerfeld for those evening operas.
