 Here it comes: my cold-season-new-arrival-number-one: The Trench Coat! I can't believe I resisted needing one for such a long time! Here it came into my wardrobe and the first look it inspired is this romantic one! This is one of the rare times when I didn't go for any contrasts. Just the puffy, the creamy, the lacy, the girly, the sweet stuff!

I even chose these vintage black pumps for these look! Why black? Because as contrasty as it may seem at first, black shoes are the most natural choice to a sweet romantic look: they take me back to my teens, to the first pair of dressy shoes I've ever owned, to feeling so immature and so grown-up at the same time... Second, I just LOVE the way black shoes look next to a cream lacy and puffy material. I can't explain that, this combination just pleases my eye!

And, to finsh the shoe subject, I must confess that these pumps are indeed a true vintage piece. They belonged to my mother's aunt and had been sitting in her closet brand new for about ... 40 years! She got them in those times when women of the Soviet Union didn't have the luxury of buying their clothes and shoes by just going into the store. The stores were empty, there were occasional "lucky days" when merchandise came, and you had to stand the long line and grab whatever you had a chance to grab. So, my mother's aunt got these shoes, but never wore them. She is 87 years old now, and I've recently visited her, and she just pulled a shoe box out of her closet and offered me try them on. They turned out to be exactly my size, so I couldn't miss the opportunity!



Итак, первый из моего списка "обновлений осеннего гардероба" 2015 г.: классический  тренч! И, что я могу сказать: я не понимаю, КАК я могла так долго сопротивляться, считая, что он мне не нужен. И только посмотрите, на какой образ он меня вдохновил, едва успев появится в моем гардеробе: романтический, классический, воздушный, кремовый, нежный и мягкий! Это один редких случаев, когда мне даже не захотелось никаких контрастов. 

Я даже туфли выбрала самые-самые простые, аккуратные и скромные. Почему именно они? Во-первых, мне очень-очень нравится именно черная обувь под воздушно-кружевной светлый наряд. А во-вторых, эти туфли - действительно, по-настоящему "винтажные". Они до недавнего времени принадлежали маминой тете и пролежали у нее в шкафу совершенно не ношенными около 40 лет! Она купила их когда-то в пору дефицита, и, как все в то время, берегла их "на особый случай". Сейчас маминой тете 87. Недавно мы были у нее в гостях, и она вспомнила про эти туфли, заставила меня их померить, и они "случайно" оказались моего размера.
