COSMOPOLITAN Shopping RU Feature!

posted on: Wednesday, November 30, 2011

I would Love to thank Katya and her team for featuring me in the December issue of COSMOPOLITAN SHOPPING RU about New York Fashion and shopping in New York City. I was extremely excited when I received a copy of the magazine in the mail recently. Please excuse my amateur photography skills. I wanted to share this with you all although majority of the text is in Russian, I was very satisfied with just looking at all the NYC inspired photos and all the great items featured in the magazine overall. I did manage to translate some parts of the text from the "bloggers" page for you all though ;)

"The accelerated pace of New York is reflected in fashion and how to dress up its inhabitants. The trends are so fast-techny that describing the fashion of the city in one word is impossible. But right now, the streets of New York are filled with Chelsea boots, knitted scarves, bright neon colors, including Barham, platform shoes, leather jackets with fringe, and the main source of inspiration are the 70s" - Elle

"The style of New York individual is brave, it is filled with color, but it is absolutely not pretentious. Everyone in this city sets their own standards, as I am in my blog.
Currently very popular cropped leather jackets, skirts with high slits as well as maxi dresses and skirts, faux fur jackets and vests, tailored pants/blazers, large oversized bags, etc. In New York, each day feels fashionable and beautiful!"

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.  It turns what we have into enough, and more.  It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity.  It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.  Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.

Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it. - Buddha

Lately, I have been wearing a whole lot of blue (coincidentally). It's very much a good alternative to the typical grey and black that we often see being worn this time of year. I also find myself shopping in the men's section for my oversized scarves because it adds a certain amount of 'masculine' edge which I love.
