Folk style in winter

Folk style in winter

On the 1 of every month Natalia from the In The Writer's Closet blog, along with her co-hosts Tina and Beate, feature a link up called Modish Matrons (Natalia gives an interesting explanation where the name of the link up came from). Each month one of the three ladies presents a theme that inspires her. The January's theme is Russian Winter Fairy Tale. And here is my interpretation of the theme.

Folk style winter outfit
The look does have a Russian vibe, doesn't it? Red beads necklace, red shawl, crochet decorated skirt...And it is funny because not a single thing in this ensemble comes from Russia. The red beads are bought in a Tibetan shop in Nepal, the folk style skirt is of Polish origin and was bought at the bazaar in Belarus, the red shawl is Turkish and was gifted to me by a Turkish friend.

The boots are a recent addition to my wardrobe. They are decorated with bigger rhinestones at the base and with small ones at the upper part.

The link up is open during January so you still have time to join in.

  1. this is totally fab!
    welcome to modish matrons!
    you did a very chic interpretation of the theme! and you know what - folk costumes are very universal in fact - i always mix different countries/even continents and mostly the accessories make up for a special tribe if i want this - mostly not - i´m not a nationalist :-)
    and my own "russian look" is made of german fur and dress, a shawl from kashmir/india and an austrian cardigan!

  2. Wow!!! What an interesting look!!! It does have Russian folk in winter vibes, like you have mention with red colours, crochet skirt, that scarf worn as a headband....and also the boots kind of remind me as well from fairy tales hehehhe the fur can be interpreted as Russian too as it is cold there andoesn't many people wear fur... you look great in this unusualist, fun and creative look :) :) :)

  3. Lovely outfit! Love that coat! :)

  4. What a fun faux fur jacket! You look "fairy" pretty Olga! I have a white faux fur jacket that I've shown several times on my blog because I love to promote wearing faux instead of animals who suffer miserably.



  5. I absolutely love your creation, Olga! What a great mix of different textures and shades of white - with additions of red! Lovely and unique interpretation! Thank you so much for taking a part in our fun play! :)
