Hats in the early morning. Hats at work. Hats when you’re wildly dancing to the “Running man” at 5 a.m. in the closing pub. I’m such a sucker for getting one each time I travel. In fact, almost each of my hats came from the different corners of the world. This one got snatched from the Topshop in Chicago, during our girls’ trip. It’s two times bigger than my head and it’s wiggling on it like a frying pan, but who cares! It’s my dearest flashback from all the travelling I made.
I wish I could travel as much as I did when I was a student. In Russia, the possibility to travel is a bit more narrow than it is in Europe or other countries. The conditions for getting a visa leave much to be desired, the transportation is often inconvenient and getting a plane ticket may be sometimes daunting due to the long distances. That’s why I felt extremely lucky when I moved to France. The first thing I did was… you got me right – I got myself a flight to Barcelona! I still remember it was twelve euros back and forth (Thank you, Easyjet, you rock!). The ability to discover so many different countries and cultures basically got me nuts, so I found myself travelling all the time. You know this feeling of finding a good weekend deal and booking it with the quivering fingers, right? The overwhelming happiness guaranteed. Sorry for the number of lectures skipped, I never pretended to be the best undergrad in the class anyway. Now the happy-go-lucky student years are over, and the things got slightly different, especially because I work even during the weekend. Nevertheless, the most essential is to not get in the trap and celebrate life, so I gave myself the promise to travel more in the future. P.S. All the ideas for the next destinations are more than welcome!
No surprise this shoot was inspired by the nomad spirit, being in between two countries the whole time of my life, I can totally relate to it! When I first saw this vest, the first thing that came into my mind was – “Man, isn’t it a perfect attire of the shepherd?!”. I was obliged to get it. Now, here is what I came up with.
