Blackout



That day it snowed so much but honestly when I make my mind to wear something it as if written in stone. I wore this dress to a dinner at Mari Vanna NYC for Orthodox Christmas on January 7th. The dress itself (and so are the shoes!) as a statement with daring cutouts and choker neckline so I really went extremely minimal with accessories only wearing two black rings.
Ever since I saw this Twin Sister dress on Asos I had to have it. I love the details. Also made it easier for me I do not have to wear any support, but if you do have a larger chest you might need the adhesive cups.

Do you know why Russian Orthodox Christmas is in January?

This is simply due to a difference in calendars.The majority of the Orthodox churches worldwide use the Julian calendar, created under the reign of Julius Caesar in 45 BC, and have not adopted the Gregorian calendar, proposed by Latin Pope Gregory of Rome in 1582.
In 1923 a revised version of the Julian calendar was introduced bringing Christmas Day in line with the Gregorian calendar, but it was only adopted by some of the Orthodox Christian countries including Greece, Cyprus and Romania.
There are 13 days in difference between the two calendars, the Gregorian calendar being the one long adopted by Western nations.
Russia has been Christian since 980 AD.

I really missed the food and since I couldn't make it to the restaurant on the New Year's Eve, Christmas was my next option. I really love how cozy Mari Vanna is, as if you are visiting your granny's apartment with all the vintage trinkets and d├ęcor. And I will always say how much I enjoy the idea of the wallpapers you can write on! If you're in NYC it's a must visit.









I used Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette, (The Smoky Cat) Maybelline liquid liner with Beth Bender Beauty stencils and Wet'n'Wild lipstick in Cherry Bomb with Milani anti-feathering lip crayon.


The television shows the Russian cartoon 'Belosnezhka' (Snowhite)
I remember watching it in my country! :)

'Borscht' - the tiny side plates have sour cream and 'Salo' - Lard.
My favorite!

'Napoleon'- Fluffy layered cake

'Klubnichka' drink with Strawberry infused vodka and Lavender syrup

The bill in Mari Vanna comes in a 'Kosheliok'

What do you think, would you wear this dress?
Have a nice rest of the week dears!
