A Dress? A Tunic? Or a Folk Costume? / Платье? Туника? Или народный костюм?

Dress/ платье: H&M
Sandals/ босоножки: Donald J Pliner
Bag/ сумка: Louis Vuitton
Sunglasses/ очки: Moschino

Lipstick/ помада: Dior Lily
Nails/ лак: Cuccio in the Key of Lime

I had a lot of questions concerning this item of clothing. In the first place: is that a dress? Or a top? Or did I just buy it as tribute to our Belarusian folk costume...

Because before it became a huge trend a couple of seasons ago, this ornament used to be traditional folk ornament of Belarus. Unfortunately, we weren't the ones to popularize it, to bring it to the runways and streets. Even the retail giants like H&M got ahead of us...

Я купила эту штуковину, не особо задумываясь о том, как я буду ее носить. Купила ее, наверное, из-за орнамента. Уже пару сезонов, как он вошел в моду, и мы, беларусы, вспомнили наш народный узор. Но, к сожалению, не мы вывели его на подиумы и в массы, не мы прославили его на весь мир. Нас опередил даже дешевый масс - H&M. Причем опередил не только по скорости "подхвата" нового тренда, но и по доступности.                  


  1. To me it looks like a lovely summer dress....Whatever it is, it is very beautiful:) I do see the folklore influences and I love them. I really like European folklore dresses...and Slavic ones are always very pretty!

    You look fantastic in this outfit. The sandals and the bag are very cute.

  2. Nice summer dress!

  3. Dear Olga, I think it is simply everything <3 And especially it is true tradition! You look wonderful in it!
