This Russian Doll Ring is on my hotlist for wanted stuff  (hint, hint). I love how it opens and reveals a smaller doll. How useless!…. but beautiful. As you may know, I collect Russian doll stuff, from fabric to handbags to jewelry, so this one would blend nicely in my boudoir.  Anyway, show your love for Mother Russia with this ring make sure you have your Leninade in hand for the ultimate Russian fashion statement!

Brooklyn photography duo Kat + Duck have some visually striking work that are both dramatic and chic. I love the huge half circle on the model’s head in the last photo. She just needs a carrot hanging from the tip and be a bunny. Or in my case, hang some delicious fried chicken at the end. I’d run all damn day! Be sure to check out their site,especially the ‘Rorschach Test’ photo shoot with a model serving as the ‘ink blots’… pretty damn cool if you ask me. I also dig the Russian-style splash page.- Kra-si-va-ya*!

*That means “beautiful” or something in Russian. Seriously, I learned that from a mail order bride.

These are the cutest damn things I’ve seen in a long while! These are  limited-edition Pupa cosmetics dolls (the ‘Puposka World è la Collezione’) from Italy.  Everything from lipgloss to eye shadow and a mirror (of course!) are compressed into these Russian dolls. There are a variety of  dolls ranging from African to Alaskan ( no, it looks nothing like Sarah Palin, thankfully!) You can buy them here, but it is an Italian website, so whip out your Berlitz book or kidnap a waiter from your local Italian restaurant when ordering. They are surprisingly inexpensive considering it’s uniqueness- they are about 11 Euros each. Actually, that’s like $100 American dollars with all the inflation? ?(I’m to lazy to convert, blah, blah, blah. )

Here ‘s the coveted Chanel Matryoshka- it’s $7,000! It’s like the price of a crappy car.

I know, referencing that 90s TV show, Perfect Strangers shows my age… Anyway, John Galliano has been drinking the same water as Karl Lagerfeld because he is equally as talented. He overseas several collections and all of them are drastically different from each other within the same season. Galliano was inspired by  Russian-Balkan folklore which made for a beautiful collection. Sprinkled with pom pom-ed footwear,  silver chains and intricate silver embroidery, Galliano captured the traditional look with the right twist of high fashion creating a chic and new take on the often dowdy folk dresses of Russian villagers residing in the Balkan Mountains. This is one collection that I would snap up in its entirety and wear day and night while drinking tea from the samovar.
