From Russia with Love LO



Love, love this James Bond song... It is also one of my favourite photos of myself, when I was oh so young, in my early 20s. I used to be a member of the ethnographic society in my home town, and here I am wearing a replica of a Northern Russian dress called sarafan. My headdress was slightly wrong (for me), as this type of a headdress was intended for married women, and I was not married at that time, but I just loved it.
I used Russian Journey papers (Dove of the East) and Daisy D's, plus Russian ribbons.
BTW, the word "treasure" doesn't refer to myself, but meant to mean treasure your heritage, lol.
