White Russian

Epiphany frosts fashion 4
While you are reading this post, I am traveling to Russia and Belarus to visit my family and friends. Looking at this warm winter outfit, you are probably wonder whether it is really that cold in the Eastern Europe. Well, it all depends on which part of Russia we are talking about. As far as I remember, the weather in Moscow and Minsk is just a bit colder than it is in New York. I’ve never been to Siberia, but from what my friends say it is “painful to breath” most of the winter there.

What many of my American friends are not aware of is that there is a period of time known as Epiphany frosts when it is extremely cold in all parts of Russia. I am well-aware of this epic cooling, but my schedule did not allow me to avoid the frosts. I am heading to Russia well-prepared, wearing a fur hat that we purchased last summer in Moscow, a cozy cashmere poncho and fur gloves. And here is just another very Russian habit of mine: No matter how cold it is, I am always wearing my signature red lipstick.

    • Thank you, Eva! I am already in Russia and my fur hat really helps me a lot. I’ve read on your blog that you are currently living in Siberia. Is it true? How’s the weather in Siberia these days?

    • Ohh Jenny I am so jealous about California’s weather! You can wear your entire wardrobe all year long and enjoy the sun. However, I like skiing and skating so a little snow works for me. Thank you for your warm wishes! <3
