@ National Museum of Ethnography and Natural History, Chisinau, Moldova
exhibition of Romanian traditional clothes, especially blouses.
if you, by some chance, are interested in bags and purses beyond the mere thing of having them… HERE I documented (with pictures of bags and texts) my visit to the Museum of Bags and Purses in Amsterdam, July 2008
a movie called:
in Romanian - Satra
in Russian - Табор уходит в небо
in English - Queen of the Gypsies (or Gypsies Are Found Near Heaven)
it is a 1975 Soviet film… but the main people here are from Moldova - the director - Emil Loteanu; the lead roles - Svetlana Toma and Grigore Grigoriu, the composer - Eugeniu Doga…
well, most of them were working mainly in Moscow…cause such where the times.
anyway, if you happen to find this movie, watch it, truly beautiful… lots of love, wisdom, gypsy traditions, great music there… and gypsy fashion :)
after many years and various realities… to me true gypsies are the ones from the movie.
because of this movie, I fell in love with long large floral skirts… and when I had the possibility (around 7-8 years ago) I sew one (well, I paid and somebody else did the sewing)… this one
yesterday night I was scrolling through (in my Google Reader… by the way, thanks to the one that invented it) www.fashionising.com and came across this photoshoot: Nightcall by Edina Csoboth and David Nyiri
which I really like…and reminded me of some photos and self-portraits that I randomly took one evening (while walking home), 2 years ago (here is one photo, will post more in a bit) :) would love to be the “model” in a profession shooting of this type.
it is a style/fashion blog (and many probably already know about it, cause it is very famous)… but not of everything that is out there. it is the style, people, photos, sites that they (2 girls/women) like and there is a general common feeling of the blog and I relate a lot to their tastes :)
