Back in the USSR

Hi!! šŸ˜€

Today’s post is a mashup of an outfit-of-the-day and showcasing a cool antique item I own; I decided, why not give it a photoshoot of its own?!

I have a small collection of antiques, and one that I really love is this tiny porcelain doll. This little gal is a 1980’s, Soviet Union-era toy doll that came to me all the way from Moscow, Russia. ā¤ļø I’ve had it for a couple of years.

I love her poofy red hair and pink dress. She’s so tiny and cuuuuute! ā™„ļø I like that she is a bit disheveled but still so dainty; a few dirt smudges and a frayed bow – a little antique from a state that no longer exists. But this fragile doll is like: I’m still here, a little piece of history.

I’m a big history lover; on a particular note, I’ve always been fascinated by abandoned Soviet buildings. I don’t know why. Something about the old concrete structures – scratched, rusted and faded Cyrillic words painted on peeling walls – gives me a mysteriously melancholic feeling.

Do you have any historical things you are drawn to? I have several, but this is just one in particular. I have a few other USSR antiques, but I wanted to showcase my favorite one – the porcelain doll. ā™„ļø

Above is my crazed stalker expression. Isn’t it so seductive and attractive? NOT!!!!!

I added little pink socks to my look and I’m loving my glittery butterfly hairclips (I bought them on Etsy)! šŸ˜€ My skirt I bought off Amazon along with the shoes, the socks are from Forever 21, and the sweater is from H&M.

Hope you enjoyed reading! Seeee you next time!

  1. Your doll is so cute!! I’ve always loved the look of strawberry blonde hair with pink; it has a kind of old-timey feel, sort of 1950s. And it’s especially interesting that she comes from the USSR. I like what you say about that: “a little antique from a state that no longer exists. But this fragile doll is like: Iā€™m still here, a little piece of history.” Sweet but unbreakable; what’s not to like? Also, lovely butterfly barrettes. They really enhance the crazed stalker expression!
