The moment I saw this Charlotte Olympia “Baboushka” bag (GBP 375), I knew I had to have it. It’s like Charlotte continues to design things with me in mind…first the black Kitty Flats that are a carbon copy of my cat Pepper, and now this matryoshka bag! Oh, Charlotte…you know me so well.
Here’s hoping that Nicholas Mellamphy orders a few of these for The Room. Fingers crossed.

Last week, I had a chance to attend Swarovski Spring 2011 collection preview, and I was definitely impressed with what I saw. So many beautiful, colorful, lovely pieces – I left coveting more than a few.
But the one item that stood out to me was this fun Matrioshka (Matryoshka) necklace. As a half-Russian myself, I’ve always been a sucker for items that represent my heritage, and this necklace does so in a very cutesy, yet chic way. Sadly, these won’t be available until sometime in February, so until then I’ll be dreaming of a crystal-studded Matrioshka doll necklace.

You might remember last year’s Chanel Paris-Moscow collection, which featured such gems as Matryoshka doll and Fabergé-inspired bags. Well, to honor the Universal Exhibition in Shanghai, Chanel launched a collection inspired by that Chinese city. This limited-edition collection also includes a pretty lacquered doll-clutch, as well as a not-so-PC “Take Away” purse, dragon cuffs, and tacky sequined bags.
Once again, I find myself enthralled by the loveliness of the very kitschy (yet very unattainable) doll clutch, and I even like the Chanel “to go” box-bag. And why the heck not? It’s cute, tongue-in-cheek, and fun to look at. I’d definitely buy one if money wasn’t an issue. What about you? Do you like any of the pieces, or are they too much for you?

Last night’s “epic” game was way too painful to watch. At least for me. I went in truly believing that no matter which team won, I’d still be happy, since I am a Canadian of Russian descent. It’s a win-win, right? Wrong! Sitting at a St. Louis, surrounded by a sea of jersey-clad Team Canada fans, I felt a little sad for Team Russia, and though I dressed to represent both teams – Russian Matryoshka tee with a Canada Cowichan sweater on top, I found myself gritting my teeth when Canada scored not 1, not 2, but 3 goals in the first period and the only one in the entire bar to leap for joy when Russians scored! I guess, so much for neutrality.
Still, I would have to admit, Canadians played really well. Much, much better than during their game against the US. As for the Russians…they just didn’t show up. Oh well, maybe next time…perhaps winning on home turf is what matters, and the team that really, really wanted it won? We shall see if it’s the case in Sochi.
