Looking at those photos, you probably think, “Wow, that girl is totally into a Russian theme these days.” That’s right! I am about to fly to Eastern Europe and visit my family, and I believe my nostalgic mood influences my outfit choices. Here is a little Russian lesson for you. The print incorporated in my dress design is called Gzhel and it is usually used for ceramics not clothes. The floral crown trend that is so popular these days is also a Russian invention. Eastern European girls were wearing traditional vinoks for many years prior to 2014 when Americans made those accessories Coachella style statements. Live and learn, dear readers. As Russian people say, everything new is a well-forgotten old.
