f you guys know me, you know I'm obsessed with Fort Worth. I love this chill city! And this time of year, when the entire Main St. gets shut down for ART, hands down my favorite. I go for the rush, creative energy is in the air and I totally feed off of it.Read More
The theme for this year is - Self Evolvement. The start of a new year always gave me a feeling of a mental boost, like coming out of hibernation I feel hungry, I feel like I've been asleep for too long. 2016 past me buy and I didn't even notice. I've spent too much time focusing on all the wrong things, letting negative emotions effect me in a crippling way. I'm walking into the new year with a clearer mind, I am taking my focus back and placing it where it always should've been - My Self. I hope to unwind and be more relaxed this year, do the things that I always say I'm going to do, set aside my fear of failure and create more and I think most essentially, be more aware of time.Read More
Well, for like two minutes it felt like fall here in Texas. Something about the cold, crisp, morning air that makes me feel so calm and relaxed, and a bit nostalgic for my home in Russia. Where beautiful, tall goddesses, wearing stylish wool coats, high heels clattering down the concrete runway and the smell of coffee in the air. I feel envious of places that have legit 4 season, you bust out your fall/winter garments from the back of the closet and pack up all the summery things. But if you are here in Texas with me, you know that's not the case for us. We bust out the few fall'ish/winter'ish things that we own, with all of our summer arsenal on stand by.Read More
Ahh, fall is here! And although it is still hot as balls in Dallas, as long as I wear something light on my body, I can and will pull on some thigh high boots (THB). Boots are most definitely one of my favorite trends. Be they over-the-knee, thigh-highs or crotch-high, I just feel like they can make you feel so damn sexy and yet so bad ass. Wear a cute little black mini dress, a sweatshirt/sweater dress, skirt, a pair of winter shorts or even trendy cut off short, throw on a pair of thigh highs and they will elevate your entire look. Opt for a higher heel, this will crazy elongate your legs. Now style with a garment which stops where the boot stops for a little skin peek-a-boo when you walk or sit. Or with something that will give you about 5-6 inch gap of skin to sex it up. I personally like to show a bit of leg above the boot, because I'm short and this gives an optical illusion of longer legs, which in turn gives the illusion of height. Styling black THB with jeans however isn't something I would recommend. You've got your boots, then a pair of skinny jeans and a top. While this has been a huge trend through out the years, it isn't my favorite. I feel like, visually this styling breaks your body up in blocks. Unless you're a tall, skinny, runway chick, this look isn't very flattering. But if this is how you like to wear THBs, go with denim that is same or close in color to your boots. This will make your legs flow, lengthening them, rather that being cut off at the thigh.
Play around with this look. Pull out a few different pieces out of your closet and have a styling session, you may be surprised how some of these pieces will look completely different styled with thigh-highs.
Tag a selfies on Instagram with #silentimageryTHB or send it to me directly @mashamv I would love you see your looks.
*make up tip
If you are like me and tend to wear darker colors, black in my case. Go for a softer make up. Pale rose cheeks and lips with a defined brow is all you need.
