It's been a while since I last did a wedding post, so today I'm going to share with you some of my new favorite lace wedding gowns from Tidebuy.com. Some of the details I find irresistible in wedding dresses are cathedral trains, open backs and lace. A beautiful long train and layers of lace make you feel like a princess, while a back cleavage adds a sensual touch to an otherwise modest dress. Which one of these is your favorite?

Let me introduce you all to my new hat. It arrived at my door all the way from Israel and it is a courtesy of Justine Hats. It is no secret how much I love hats, but never before have I owned such an exquisitely handmade creation, made exactly to my specifications. I chose this rich burgundy color which I love for winter and it also perfectly matches my favorite wool skirt which I'm wearing in these pictures. I kept the rest of the outfit black to really make the color pop. Do you like it? Do you ever wear wear hats like this? I noticed that it turned quite a few heads as I was walking to a meeting in the center of Florence yesterday and Japanese toursits stopped to take pictures haha... I take it as a sign of approval ;)

In my last post I (hopefully) gave you a few nice men's gift ideas, but now it's time to think about ourselves. It happens way to often that we don't buy something we really like, because it is not that useful after all and we can easily live without it. Well, ladies, now is the time to indulge in some "unnecessary" shopping and finally get that box of expensive truffles or those lime green pumps.

It's probably one of the biggest problems of the holiday season... I think we can all agree that it's extremely difficult to choose a great present for the men in our lives. Sometimes it seems like they have everything and what they don't have is way too expensive, or, even after years together we have no idea what is it they really want...

As you can see, I'm wearing a new hairstyle today and this is about as radical as I get when it comes to changing my hair. I'm not going to pretend it was easy to force my hair into this shape and that it took me only 5 minutes, because it didn't. I actually had to sleep a night on soft rollers - and if you've ever tried those you know how "soft" and comfortable they are. Then, I had to walk around the house with a hood on like some wannabe rapper, because my mother told me to NEVER EVER let my husband see me with rollers on (all the Russian girls out there will understand me). At the end I put a can of hair spray in it, otherwise it just wouldn't hold. But no pain no gain, right? I was cleaning up the mess in my garage the other day and I found these decade-old rollers I used back in high school, so I though I'd give them another chance. What do you guys think? Yay or nay?
