In the past seasons Designers paid homage to Russian folklore: while Gucci put forward hip bohemian collection in Fall 2009, John Galliano created breathtaking fairy-tale like gowns. I'm all inspired, but I’m not really prepared to leave the house in head-to-toe folkloric gear, unless its Halloween or United Nations day or something. So instead, I wear my blue paisley scarf I snagged in Moscow flea market. High Street has a good selection of Russian-inspired or eastern paisley print scarves, which create the same effect!
