Early November

My post titles will never be creative, I can swear on that. So pardon for not putting a few words together for a long time as I tend to forget I have this blog at all. Anyway, now I am kind of high on Glee. Well, not high just addicted. The thing is, when I start watching something I have to finish it. So, I am at the end on the second season. What got me going at first were the musical numbers, but as time went on, they somehow started getting more and more mellow and uninteresting. And then I started noticing Glee fashion. My first victim was the OCDish Miss Pilsbury. I really liked her funny cartoonish outfits. Although I would never dress like that I could relate to the image very well. And then there was the second season, when the cheerleaders ditched their uniforms and turned to casual wear. And one special day I saw Rachel Berry wearing my Zara peter pan collar blouse. I was star struck, what can I say. That is, my blouse was. And Kurt! He is adorable. One day I was pondering whether he was actually wearing Ann Demeulemeester or Alexander Mcqueen.

Anyway, what I wanted to show you today was what I wore just a week ago. We didn’t do anything for Halloween this year due to the special circumstances (which were that we moved to London into a temporary place, where there really isn’t much space for anything more but eating or sleeping and that doesn’t make us very excited for festivities) but instead went out for a little photo shoot. Saw some nice houses and jewellery shops along the way, though. So here we go. My pseudo seventies secretary outfit.


Riga and Art Nouveau

Where is Riga? – It’s in Lavia, the middle one of the three Baltic States, others being Lithuania and Estonia. It is about 200 km from my home town, so I am a regular visitor.

What is so special about it? -Well, first of all Riga is the capital of Latvia, so obviously there’s quite many things to see there. What attracted me most, was a wonderful part of the city built in the Art Nouveau style. All of the above pictures are the examples of the style.

Lucky Days

Some days are really better than others. Last week was so black for me, I can’t even start to tell. I was thinking I wouldn’t be able to finish my bachelors thesis, but lo and behold, yesterday I did it! I didn’t plan to do anything fancy to celebrate it, but my friend who is soon off to USA asked me out so we went to hang around oldtown a bit. There’s this bar in Vilnius, which is called Brusly ( yes, after The Bruce Lee) and the food is soooo delicious, inexpensive and filling. Yum. It’s a mix of asian cuisines, those are very popular in Lithuania.

So after that we went looking for some nice place to take photos and found some shabby old courts, but most importantly we went to Bernardinai cemetery. That is the most beautiful and peaceful cemetery in whole country, I’d day. Not to compare with the cemetery of my oldtown I presented a few months ago. Besides these were so green, dark, spooky, really really gothic. You can not ask for more.  And so my friend took some pictures of my outfit during the afternoon.

Btw, I am totally absolutely in love with these cameo earings.
