Gambolling in Saint Petersburg

Had to post this the minute I set eyes on the lovely pictures created by the team at J Crew. Set in the incomparable Saint Petersburg, Polish model Magdalena Frackowiak traipses over its picturesque streets, pauses on one of the city's many stunning bridges, struts in front of the famed Hermitage museum and jumps with joy in this delightful series that would no doubt send everyone in the direction of the airport or the nearest J Crew store. While the clothes exude the same mix of effortless chic and classic with a twist, it is the unmistakable architecture and old world glamour that makes this such a heady, romantic trip down memory lane. It takes me back six years to the summer I spent walking the same path, experiencing the same overwhelming feelings of awe and gladness as excitement bubbled in my chest. Ah Russia, your charms are eternal...
