Why sleep when we can watch the sunrise

Melanie – Baby Day
Flaunting my latest closet additions on this crisp november day in the centre of Moscow. Nothing beats the rainy days blues like a brand new Burberry umbrella, in fact, the experience of holding its hand-crafted handle seems to give the whole world a touch of grace. And no, I am not exaggerating. It’s magical. 

To other relevant news happening in my closet besides Leo taking a nap on every shelf – this bag is a purchase from my trip to Rome that now accompanies me every day. Roomy, soft and simple – it adds class to any look, and the toffee color is simply gorgeous.

  • You are so so so beautiful. And the photos you take – the aura and ‘edge’ to it is magnificent! I wish somebody could take photos like this for me one day (: It’s really captivating, honestly. Following you – I really am in love with your vibe!

    • Thank you, Cynthia! If you look at my older posts, you’ll see that I used to have blurry photos with unrealistic colors… I now have an awesome photographer and I’m sure you’ll have your photos taken by a pro some day (although you take great pics yourself).

  • agrrrrrrrrrrrrrr, I hate you. I could haveneverhad-willneverhave an expensive umbrella…they last a couple of months with me… 🙁 sigh


    • If you only knew what happened to another Burberry umbrella that I owned… Still can’t talk about it, hoping to get it fixed. No, really, so tragic. My clumsiness prevents me from purchasing beautiful things too 🙁
