Few weeks ago I got an offer to take part in filming. I've never tried that!  Famous Ukrainian director Les' Sanin makes his new movie about city Kharkiv in late 20's - early 30's. I was invited for a role of dancing actress, as well as few more ladies from our swing dance community. It took two days and countless amount of takes to film about 30 different scenes of evening party in restaurant. To tell the truth, I never knew it is so hard to get together 80 people properly dressed, make up'ed and hairstyled  and manage their moves and acts. But now I know :) The process was very fascinating, even in the late evening, when everybody was exhausted. Tired, but excited! I really enjoyed these two days being an actress. Not sure I will find my face in final film, but anyway it was great. I loved the whole atmosphere, all those magic manipulations made by make up artists and costume designers. Everybody was looking posh and elegant, even actors who were playing Soviet party official :)  So let's have a look at us, stylized as late 20's ladies and gentlemen (gentleman? :-) )!

That's it! More photos coming in few days - stay tuned :)

Sunny vintage style photoshoot

Last year in September I had an absolutely marvelous photoshoot with animals.
I wanted to create look between 40's and 50's. Now I see it's more 40's, but I love it anyway.

I think it's time to share with you these photos to make days more bright and sunny.

It was big luck for us to meet a lady with lovely dog. Doggy liked me very much, as you can see :) And I liked it too!

We went to small nice park and were surprised to see polecates meeting! Well, there were few people with these funny creatures. One kind man gave me one to hold  and to take a photo. So I'm holding a polecat lady, which was hyperactive, trying to smell my neck all the time. Ain't she sweet? :)

I'm already missing that great sunny days, but looking back to warm times helps a bit. 
What do you do to avoid November depression?

Fur collars: original or faux?

As a big vintage lover and real woman I LOVE fur. I'm not sure it's time to buy a fur coat - it's incredibly expensive and heavy and needs proper shoes and maybe car :) Hard to imagine a lady in a fur coat early in the morning in the tube. So right now I can't afford myself this precious stuff. But I can afford fur collars! Real, faux - it doesn't really matters, since it's beautiful by itself. In my Tweed run post you saw my handmade fox fur collar. Today I decided to look for some lovely vintage collars, and that's what I found.
Lovely fur collar from here.
