A Very Russian Winter - 1950's Quilted Skirts & Ulyana Sergeenko

By now you all know that I am perpetually dreaming of being stuck in an Eastern European fairy-tale. I adore anything that reminds me of my childhood spent in remote Balkan villages inhabited by scarf wearing babushka's. Ulyana Sergeenko's designs definitely make my heart twinge with the fresh sting of nostalgia. I can't afford her designs, however, because she draws so much inspiration from decades past, it was relatively easy to replicate some of her signature looks. This beautiful 1950's quilted skirt was a steal at $14, and it is so much more substantial than many modern counterparts. It will definitely keep me toasty during the cold Winter months, especially with a pair of soft wool stockings underneath!

  1. That IS a cute skirt. I love your shoes, too. There really is something sweet and old fashioned about a flowered skirt with a sweater and tights in the winter.


I'd love to hear from you!
