Even though I was not born in the U.S., I love celebrating American holidays. There is something charming in the special recipes, decorations and festive clothing that I missed growing up in Russia. Our major national holidays did not imply any specific dress code and thus were not that as fun as American ones. In exploring my new Russian-American identity, I have included my interpretation on the U.S. patriotic look. Also, make sure to check out the rest of this post as I host a linkup and a special giveaway for you.
