Little floral print dress and my hometown's birthday

I was born in a small town that yesterday celebrated its 55th birthday. Festivities were organised on this occasion and I invite you to have a walk along the streets of the young town. For the event I wore this little flowery dress that I bought during my 10-hours wait in Moscow. Actually I was shocked with the prices there, they were even higher than in London, and managed to find just this cute dress that was of good quality (50% polyester and 50% silk) and at affordable price. The dress is of a Russian brand and that is why it was cheaper.

Not many but some women were dressed in traditional costumes. Also there were many traditional handicrafts on sale: embroidered towels, straw figurines, hand-woven belts. At some stalls it was possible to watch the process of handcrafting.

The streets were full of beautifully dressed women, young and not so young

You could even meet buffoons or pirates 

We spent the whole day at the celebrations and it would be difficult not to buy something. I purchased this red flower hairband

 these handmade ornaments

and this ceramic cat for my collection

I really enjoyed the day and hope you enjoyed yours no less!

  1. Beautiful handcrafting is made in your country. I love the embroideries and the jewelry.
    You took great street style pics from the stylish women in your town and you look fabulous in your new dress. It's gorgeous the floral pattern and the shape.

  14. How wonderful you've been home to celebrate your birthplace's birthday! You look so pretty. The traditional dress of your region is exquisite. I love the embroidery on the fine white cloth. It was fun to see some of the other people who attended the celebration, and thank you for including some older folks!!

    I've recommended your blog to several of my friends who are obsessed with tribal jewelry and clothes, like I am. I realized recently I hadn't commented, but your blog is unique and totally outstanding! In some ways you are living my dream: to travel the world and appreciate the beauty of adornment. Thank you so much for making it possible for me to travel with you in a small way.
