Getting Ready Time: 7 minutes. Can you believe it?! I actually did it in 7 minutes!

This outfit is a living refute of ‘if you haven’t worn it for a year- get rid of it’ rule. I bought this little number during a holiday in Miami well over a year ago and I am ashamed to admit that I only worn it a couple of times once, before I dug it out a couple of month ago, ahead of my relocation to Italy. And let’s just say I have worn it enough for it to start to fall

Chaising The Sunset. Santorini

Alyona Prykhodko, travel blog,Chaising The Sunset. Santorini, Greece, Алена Приходько, 7 more minutes, 7moreminutes

Time: 4 days

It is surprisingly hard to write a travel post. Of course, I could write a hundred mile long entry and tell you every single delicious detail of our trip (in fact originally I planned to do exactly that), but since I think that knowing too much about the place you are going to might just ruin it... I won't :). Besides, there are thousands of places where you can read about the black sand beaches, the ancient city ruins and the breathtaking sunsets of Oia. In fact, I would be very surprised if you haven't herd about it

Hello, hello! I’m back! Well, if only for a couple of days. A lot has happened in the last week and a half, including my first ever visit to Cannes Film Festival and a long visit to the building site of our upcoming shop in Porto Cervo (by far not my first visit to the building site, yet I still showed up wearing open sandals and a skirt on day one, only to leave covered in dust and paint

Getting Ready Time: 45 minutes

Right, somewhere between packing for Cannes Festival (so excited by the way!) and trying to figure out what els needs to be done before the opening of Sybarite's very first shop in June, I completely forgot to share something rather exciting.

I was a longtime fun of Ekaterina Kukhareva's work with knitwear, so when she called me up and offered me to come in a raid the studio, all I could say was: 'Hell, yes!'. And it was FUN. The best part: seeing all the samples for the forthcoming collections and of course- the

Geek Chic, fashion blog, street style, spring, Alyona Prykhodko, Алена Приходько

Getting Ready Time: 20 minutes

I was actually planning to say something about modern feminism, fashion and Chanel’s last show, but let’s face it- this topic has been tortured to death by every magazine, freelance journalist, blogger, bra-less AND bra-wearing feminist and so on. So, instead I am going to talk about glasses.

Despite of what American romcoms tried to teach me, I always thought that girls in glasses were kinda cool. And I always found guys in glasses just a little more attractive (might come as quite a shock if you are an American script writer). A
