Today’s look-of-the-day is from my first trip to St. Petersburg, Russia. No, it was actually more than just that – it was my very first trip to Russia ever. After the first day of site-seeing I was in complete awe of its beauty and splendour. The architecture and the the scenery is so impressive that you quickly become overwhelmed and immersed in it all. I even found that the city inspired me to make certain fashion choices when dressing for a day of exploration. I tended to reach for the most romanic and feminine of the dresses in my suitcase. This silk polka-dot dress seemed most appropriate for my mood of that day. I like to bring a lot of choices with me when I travel and then let the vibe of the city act as a guide. I find that it makes the whole experience more enjoyable and fulfilling for me by adding another dimension to it.  This flexible approach is like a fashionista’s take on the idea of “when in Rome.”

What I’m wearing:

  • Silk dress by “Vivienne Tam”
  • Shoes by “Laundry by Shelli Segal”
  • Wild-pearl necklace (bought in Mexico)
  • Cashmere cardigan by “Inhabit”
