Ahhh i’m so tirrrrreeeed but i know that Boy expects me to write something about today. So after our mega busy day at work we went to:
1) Sock shop Madam Baron opening. I guess if there’s demand, there’s supply too. As the owner of the shop explained Madam Baron is shop for elegant, classical working woman who loves beautiful things and wants to feel special hehe :P Well. Let’s see what future will bring to them as the shop was pretty empty (I kinda expected mooooore socks), hopefully they will find their niche and loyal clients…
2) And then came amazingly nice opening of vintage shop/café Bonera. French chic – check, live French music – check, strawberries and whip cream – check, Coco Chanel – check, cakes – check, cheese – check, good atmosphere – check, little fashion show – check, some vintage stuff – check, oldschool car – check, lovely interior – check, terrace – check, fašonpīpl – check. No seriously, was it a dream? Amazingly good opening of very, verrrrrrrrrrrrrrry nice place. I think me and Boy will go there for a coffee and cake in the nearest future :) right?
So see you soon dears as it seems this week is full of fashion events. And we will be everywhere :D

สวัสดี, y'all (this is good evening in Thai according to Google)
That's true what Girl said - we worked today till our head dropped ^_^ and rolled to Vecrīga along Audeju street and stumbled over Madam Baran shop's threshold. I liked Ms Barona approach to the business - research, analysis and true interest in hosiery! Well, as stockings are out of my interests' field I cannot really comment. However that lady promised to bring to the world something exciting, what will help to all women to select hosiery which will pass to their shape and outfits already this August and instead of e-shop, they will introduce express service soon! Imagine: you are a lady sitting in an office, and suddenly, oh Lord, there is a hole in your stockings but the next meeting is just in 15 minutes. All you do is just call hosiery express and they will instantly deliver a pair of fresh and stylish stockings. Looks handy.
Enough of PR for panties and panty hose, let's switch to something, what people in Latvian fashion twitter-o-sphere already named as "the best fashion event of the summer so far" opening of vintage shop Bonera. Girl gave very precise key-word of that events. To my mind it was professionally organised store opening/presentation, where the whole concept has been stated in a flowless and amusing manner.
Grēta and Aija
Grēta and Aija, the owner of the shop gave a greeting speech, where thet said that XX century second and trird decades was the most beautiful and happiest time of human's history, that's why the shop's is called Bonheur, which from French means happiness or welfare. Ladies also referred to Coco Chanel, who's real name was Gabrielle Bonheur. Nice legend for a vintage store. I also liked how they name themselves - delicately used clothings shop (smalklietotu apģērbu veikals). Very nice and cozy shop by all meanings, which can proudly be called as a Vintage shop (no signs of second-hand at all) and surely Girl and I will hang out there during our lunch breaks.

Now gossip/société part.
Finally we had a chat with Inita Saulīte-Zandere, Latvian Anna Wintour, if you want to, who was pretty nice to us, and we mingled about everything including her magazine Pastaiga. If you were a bit worried about Inita Saulīte-Zandere's absence in Twitter, there's no reasons for that. She is just busy with July/August issue which will be published soon. BTW Frau Saulīte-Zandere doesn't like when someone takes picture of her, so, dear followers, please forgive us.
No angry party - I was raised to great people to whom I was introduced once. I know Una Meistare, fashion/travel journalist for a pretty long time, and I always "wave hi" to her and she never responses, what makes me feel like an idiot. So, Una Meistare do you really don't know who I am and where we met, or there are some issues. Anyway I'm tired of that stupid hellos and next time I won't do it.
And an intrigue for a desert. Everyone in Latvia fashion circles are wondering who's Brando Dolles! Check his or hers twitter and you will understand that this person is very familiar to Latvian fashion scene and has an attitude and an opinion on/to it!!! It's not me, and it's not Girl (we spend like at least 8 h a day together). I just checked Brando Dolles's twitter and it looks not really appropriate for fashion incognito. So I suggest to design a logo and a background for his/her Twitter account upload it via Twitpic and ad hash theme #BrandoDollesLogo. Maybe she or he will pick the best!
Oh well... Last week I was lamenting over fašon-empty summer, but look, this week will bring us at least 3 more fashion-related events. Stay tuned and be the first one to know.
