Kavita Does Moscow | MBFWR 1

I was lucky enough to be invited along by Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia to Moscow to enjoy the capital and all it has to offer fashion wise. I have literally wanted to come to Russia for the longest time, ever since I was a little girl and fell in love with the caroon film 'Anastacia', from learning all about Russian history for my a levels. Russia has a very special place in my heart!

I decided to go for a relaxed look whilst keeping a million layers on as it's around -10 degrees here in Moscow (casual) and this grey cocoon coat fro missguided is amazing. I have never been so warm in my entire life and they have this coat in 3659472 different colours. I grabbed a grey as I don't have a soft grey coat and it matches quite nicely with my grey beanie. I also opted for my nike dunks as this day we were running around trying to sort things out and I figured I was jetlagged - so comfort was key!

The breakfast at the hotel I'm staying in is all you can eat and it's ridiculously delicious! I got in at around 3am Russian time (so 12 UK time!) and was shattered from a full days travel. I then headed off with my friend Marlen to do some outfit pictures and yes - shes absolutely amazing. IF only I could get her to do my outfit pictures every day!

One of my favourite shows so far was Yasya Minochkina. The materials stood out on the catwalk with the bright lights and the textures looked shiny, but soft at the same time. Yasya hails from the Ukraine, but actually studied at Central Saint Martins in London so I was excited to see the twist of urban fashion hit the Russian catwalk and I wasn't dissapointed. I'm not always a massive fan of shows at fashion week, but this venue is unreal and Russia itself is amazing (but more on that on another post!)

Have you ever wanted to visit Moscow?

Kavita Does Belfast - The Dock

Whilst I was away in Belfast I met up with my wonderful friend Katie, who is not only an amazing photographer but one of the best film makers I have ever come across (check out the amazing video she did HERE on here recent trip to Africa, it's unbeliveable!) And so we decided to put our creative brains together and do some work whilst I was there. I also got to just chill and hang out with her which was so so nice, and I honestly had the best few days!

So she took my along for some filming near this wonderful coffee shop called 'The Dock' and it's my favourite cafe I have ever been to. You don't pay for anything upfront, but rather leave money in an 'honesty box', which says so much about the community in Belfast and how giving people are to have something like this in place. Everything was donated, down to the sofa, decor and even the mugs (The mugs are all realy random like the collection we have in our own home, which makes this place so homely!)

I kept it pretty simple for filming day, again wore the same hat and coat but with my shimmery little 'two piece', which in fact isn't a matching set! The skirt is my absolute favourite thing I got from Bershka recently, and the crop top is actually a thrifted vintage piece my mum got me for £2 from a charity shop. I had forgotten all about the top until my skirt came.. and low and behold they're pretty much a complete match. It's a little glam/casual outfit with my missguided sneakers added!

If you ever get the chance to go to Belfast the Titanic Quarter is a proper little gem. If you are a little eagle eye you may recognise that big silver building which is the big titanic museum they did up and it's sooo freakin cool! The dock itself where we took the photos really is beautiful as well - and if you couldn't tell already, I fell in love with Northern Ireland completely!

Kavita Does Belfast | Belfast fashion Week

In pure she wears fashion style I hopped off on a plane to another destination last week and it happened to be the wonderful Northern Ireland, specifically Belfast. I was there for Belfasts fashion week with Excel, which was such a great night and you can see part of it on Helens vlog here (and massive shout out to my girl for taking these awesome photos!)

Over the knee black knit socks, Primark - 3 (similar here)
Black wedge buckle boots, gift
Black faux leather tote bag, c/o bershka
Fedora Hat, £14.99 c/o newlook

I saw this cowl neck sweater and coat combo styled on the missguided site because my incredible friend Sara is an amazing stylist and anything she puts together on there is on point, so I had to have them both. I got the sweater in a 12 so it was more of an oversized 'sweater dress' which I LOVE at the moment. I really love this oufit, it's a perfect mix of glam and casual. Especially as the weather was standard British weather out there (hence the rain in the photos!)

I also LOVE this bag, its one of my faves at the moment. Just a standard faux leather tote but so good to fit everything you need it. I was also told on a few occassions that this hat is one of those items I am 'very well known for' which I didn't realise until I looked in my old outfit pictures. I guess this hat really has been stuck to my head for the past few months but honestly fedoras transform so many of my outfits into something a little bit special (that and a lot of days I am having bad hair days!)

I'm off somewhere on Wednesday so sorry for the shortage of posts - bare with me!

English Weather

As the title would suggest, at the moment we're going through the standard English weather here in the UK. You know the one, freezing, rainy and just abit.. crap really.

Red Beanie, gift from Carmen (available from ebay here)
Chunky charcoal cropped knit, vintage & thrifted - £1
Oversized Boyfriend Coat c/o New Look
Faux leather skater skirt, ebay -£5
Black and white snake print pumps, c/o missguided
Black and white box clutch, c/o new look

I'm not a fan of dressing for the cold, I don't like rain and to top it off I get cold so easily that for me a/w fashion isn't the best. But I'm learning and I am starting to adapt (you'd think living here for 21 years would have made it easier!) and for the most part I'm happy with the items in my a/w wardrobe!

I decided to add a pop of red into this quite dark outfit, and I'm obsessed with these shoes at the moment. SO COMFY. This vintage knit jumper I grabbed from a carboot a year or two ago is perfect - lovely charcoal grey and slightly cropped!

I added two videos about backpacking onto my channel if you guys have any burning questions about backpacking alone in Asaia - let me know what you think!

All Falls Down

So recently the weather has been horrible. I'm not a winter person in the slightest. I find it hard to layer up and mixed with my bad circulation means not only am I constantly cold but in winter it's just wet and miserable.

Fedora Hat, £14.99 c/o newlook
White Shift Dress, c/o OASAP
Leopard print kimono, c/o neverfullydressed
Brown block heel leather boots, £69.99 c/o new look
Fringe Bag c/o New Look
Bindi and rings, c/o Impulse Loves (Topshop)
Necklace, c/o Impulse Loves (Diva @ Miss Selfridge)

I'm trying to embrace the change though and today the weather cleared up so I decided to venture out with my sister to run a few errands and we have this lovely little park nearby thats on the way to all the shops. I thought it was a great moment to snap some photos and also show my legs whilst I still can!

I'm so obsessed with this kimono because it's not overly floral so it's still pretty werable in A/W, and I also love these boots so much that I wear them all. the. time.
I am so swamped with other work projects at the moment so pleaaaaase bare with me. I'm also doing my room up so I'm really excited to document all the changes going on including homeware hauls and mini DIY's!

I'm also making more videos (no, this isn't some kind of sick joke) so please subscribe to my youtube chanel and let me know what you think. Upcoming video will be the backpacking Q&A!

Hope the weather hasn't got you down too much guys!
