Oh Come and Play With Me!

Fiodor, 19
"I like to dress well, this is just how I am! I am very careful at buying things, I usually think twice before choosing something to be sure I will look good in them. I love music, it is a very important part of my life and I'm pretty much always inspired by it"

Fiodor also held a whole advertising campaign about the electronic music festival KaZantip

Cheap chic

I thought these shoes looked so weird and at the same time so cute when I saw them on a workmate that I just couldn't resist and snapped a picture of them. She said she bought them for little money, so ain't that a cheap chic???

O Brother, Where Art Thou

So finally we made it to the event we were so much waiting for! The yardsale came up as we expected it to be - artsy people, great cheap stuff to buy, wine, placinte, good music and of course street style lovers that we were spotting everywhere!

Toutes Ces Couleurs au Printemps!

Yardsale offerings :)

Anna & Nadia, sisters

Nadia, 29
Inspired by people around and fashion.

Anna, 31
Anna is a fashion designer, she gets inspired by music and the people around her.

Victoria, 33 (known as the Queen) and Maria, 31

Victoria likes to wear comfy and good quality clothes. "I don't believe anymore in that boutique-chic quality. I've worked with it, I got enough of fake brands and high prices. Now I only buy pretty, cheap (usually second hand) and of good quality clothes."
Maria likes to alter music, arts and personal obsessions with her appearance. Her latest obsession is Japanese culture and spirituality.

Alexei, 26 and Xiusha, 29

"You see, it all depends on the mood. However, we always try to express our individuality, our way of being different form others."

Serafima, 20

"I find myself a person of artistic nature and this comes from my family. My mom always designed and made clothes for me and I was always encouraged to develop my creativity and express myself in artistic ways. I guess I'm inspired by music, I play the violin. Em, actually, this dress on me is designed by me and made with my mother's help, very proud of it!"

Little Blue Riding Hood?

Lena, 19, en-terminal

Met with Lena when going to a yardsale (that's another story). Lena was looking good. Took a picture. It felt better, it felt like the right thing to do.

Lena said she doesn't seek inspiration but I know what remarkable creative skills she's got and I truly know she implies them in her look. Sill, Lena is inspired by season (I think we all do) and geez, springtime is always the time to revive your look.

You're 18 just once

Iulian, 22, student

We met Iulian on our way to Malldova mall and he kept entertaining us with his semi-laughable jokes and definitely funny monologues. As the guy was a delicious party to our party, we both decided to take a picture of him. We were surprised after that to see Iulian looking so natural and effortless while we were taking his picture.
We believe Iulian is inspired by everything around him. Still, he is fond of literature, brit-pop music and photography. He also said that somehow his brother inspires him...
(Need to take a picture of the brother now... duh)
