January recap



I started the year with this dark and rainy photoshoot. Where was the winter at that time, may I ask...?



...and the answer is: here! My second Russian doll-inspired outfit, this time in appropriately snowy setting.



A proper, very me outfit wrapped in my awesome faux fur coat - just fine for one of the last days of snow.

Spring in January

The title says it all - the snow melted down through one night and, after a few days of knee-high mud and rain, we got to enjoy some beautiful spring in the middle of winter. Surprise! Time for an off-coat photoshoot with a strong splash of colour. You've already seen this shirt and red woolen skirt, so let's focus on the new items of this vintage-ish set.
One of them is a new hat - the one from my Dresslink wishlist. This was actually my first time wearing it outside... and I almost lost it three times since the wind was so strong. Luckily enough, there always have been some helpful people around who caught it every time it fell off my head! Next, look at this cardigan that I bought in a thrifted store in my hometown (which is, as I already mentioned in so many posts, a thrifted store paradise) - the retro floral pattern made me grab it as soon as I saw it on the rack. Since I wanted to keep the black colour as the accent to the overally warm palette, I chose leopard-ish frames instead of my usual black pair. As you might've noticed, I am slowly unfolding my non-prescription frames collection and, to be honest, I am not even 50% done, haha.

Back to Basics

Welcome back after one week of outfit-post-wise absence! Both of my photographers happened to be busy at the same time. The result? The mentioned small break. You got to see more of my art, though, in the new series called the Art Recap, so I hope no one's been upset! So... What do we have here today?

The answer is a complete back to basics. The Karolina Romanova version of basics, of course, so the outfit is one half elegant and one half quirky. The inner layer consists of a slightly dark schoolgirl attire: a pleated skirt and an interesting sweater with a shirt underneath; the Peter Pan-style collar is adorned with a classy cameo brooch.

Moving on to the outer layer - there's my iconic porkpie hat and tan faux fur, which really lightened up the whole set. High-cut gloves added the edgy feeling to it.

 Let's not forget about this treasure that I've found during the Christmas sale: dark red patent brogues. Even though I bought them for half of the original price, I predict they will last for years - they're really heavy and solid... and they also fit into my style perfectly.

You can't deny that this outfit is a proof that I'm doing great with last year's style resolution! I've got so many blog-related plans for 2016 that I don't even know if I'll be able to bring them all to life, but there's one thing I can say for sure now: I'm gonna stick to the quirky school uniform aesthetic.

Matryoshka, Winter Version

WE GOT SNOW! Like... okay, I wasn't all merry about it at first. The weather forecast said nothing about the snowfall so when it happened a day before I left my hometown to travel back to Łódź, I was totally unprepared. Thick leg warmer-like socks + creepers combo had to do in that situation. Not the perfect solution, but I had no other choice. However, once I got back, I came up with this cute winter outfit idea and actually brightened up a little.

Sure, initially I wanted to wear my mighty Litas, just like in my previous matryoshka-inspired outfit. Can you imagine wearing them when the ground is super slippery, though? Yeah, I couldn't either, so I opted for those comfortable laced up booties instead. 


In September I claimed I would be replacing this wig soon. I decided to give it a last chance, though - combed it thoroughly, applied lost of hairspray, straightened, combed again... and it worked miracles on the cranky ends I was complaining about! Now the wig is super soft and as natural-looking as it gets again.


I'm still amazed by the versatility of this coat. One moment, it looks like a part of a boy uniform. Now, it turned into a dress-like, elegant piece that incorporates easily into the Russian doll aesthetic. If only it had pockets...! On the other hand, maybe it's better without them - this way, it's the somehow luxurious garment reserved for special occassions.
