Cinema Outfit


Last night my friend Jacoba and I went to see Hipsters (Stilyagi) as part of the Russian Resurrection Film Festival. The movie was just fantastic! Super colourful and a little bit silly (but intentionally so, I believe) and the costumes were simply amazing. The girls costumes were great but the boys costumes were just phenomenal! It was about stilyagi, members of a youth culture that existed from the late 1940s until the early 1960s in the USSR.

Don't they all look fabulous?

And here's what I wore:


Outfit details: 1950s blouse - The Way We Wear Fair; red pencil skirt - op-shopped; bracelet - etsy; stockings - stockingshq.com; shoes - Rubi Shoes.

And I just found out that I won a giveaway hosted by one of my favourite artists, Sunny Buick!! I can hardly believe it. Her work is amazing - you should all go check it out if you don't know of her already.

Love,
Andi B. Goode

    Sarah: It's great. Yes, it is a bit like 'Swing Kids' in a way - I suppose the 'stilyagi' were to the USSR what the 'swing kids' were to Germany at that time. And thank-you very much =D

  10. What a cool movie! I've never heard of stilyagi before... I love hearing about retro youth culture in countries that aren't the US :-). You look great, I love that blouse!

  11. Oh my goodness, that film looks fantastic! I'm part Russian (though I don't know more than a few words of the language...sadly) and adore anything that merges vintage elements with Russian culture. Thank you very much for blogging about this movie, I want to see it soooo badly now! :)

    Oodles of hugs, honey!!!
