It had been a while since I promised these pictures, but finally they are out now. This dress was gifted to me by russian designer from Moscow, Ekaterina Blinova from Ginger Jackie Tailorshop. The reason why it took little longer to publish was then I measured myself wrongly so I had to get the dress alterned and what was even worse, I somehow manage to ruin the dress while washing. That´s why they are not white anymore but babe blue. Anyway, baby blue was favourite colour of June Carter and I love June and I think this colour combination with black works very well as well.
I never collaborate with any brands because I never like anything I am offered. I am too picky and I very rarely like something, although I am offered free stuff quiet often. If it doesn´t suit me I don´t care how much is it worth if it is not my style I don´t wear it. I do understand why we need repro-brands but many times I don´t like anything as it looks too costume-ish to me. But I was very surprised when I heard about Ginger Jackie (from instagram I think) and saw their designs. Bit different and advanced and very my taste. The Adelaide dress I am wearing is truly stunning piece, velvet dress with printed roses and exaggerated back gives the whole dress more dramatic look. And I love dramatic look. My favourite pieces from online shop are also Tulip jacket and Charles James dress called after my favourite couturier.I remember when Metropolitan Museum in NYC had Charles James exhibition last summer and you couldn´t get me out of there… Please have a look at Ginger Jackie, http://www.gingerjackie.ru/#!home/c11y2, I highly recommend this small brand myself.
