For a more street vibe, @Rekadrienn paired her 70’s inspired ankle boots with a black leather jacket. A great mix&match to rock this trend!

If you are not a heel kind of person, check out this great choice from @Chrisellelim : A sleek matching co-ordinates with a fine cut red hem accentuating the slimming pattern.

Посмотрели вчера "Страшные сказки", оОочень неоднозначные впечатления.? Исключительно красивый фильм, логики никакой и держал с первой и до последней минуты.? Как в привычном понимании "фильм", наверно – нет, как вид искусства, вдохновляющий и временами страшный – определенно да. Будет время, устройте себе арт-просмотр!?? P.S. #lookoftheday Модное этой зимой сочетание ❤️+?, и утепленное пальто с очень нежным цветом @fashion_confession. ?? // We watched "Tale of Tales" yesterday, very mixed feelings about it. It's an incredibly beautiful movie with no logic and it keeps you in suspense from first till the very last minute. I wouldn't say this is a movie in its classic understanding, but it is definitely an inspiring and at times scary kind of art. #ЯнаФисти #YanaFisti #streetlook #streetstyle
