i’m not sure if when we can begin traveling again if many of you might have the ukraine on your list of must-visits, but if so, kiev, one of the oldest cities of Europe and the soul and capital of the ukraine is probably high on your agenda. and sushi? well who knows, but there’s a charming, and very industrial-chic spot called the FISH & PUSSYCAT that’s getting rave reviews. this hot spot may be a bit incognito, so just follow the sign that says ‘Follow your Fishes’ — what’s a trip to the former Soviet bloc without a little mystery? we’re going to dress the part — in almost fifty shades of low-key grey. to start, a killer wrap dress worn with a spy-like belted coat with matching cashmere beanie and scarf and naturally some knee-high tall black boots. don’t forget to pack your reading glasses because on the rather long plane ride over you’re going to want to dive into Shuggie Bain by Douglas Stuart, an unforgettable story of young Hugh ‘Shuggie’ Bain, a sweet and lonely boy who spends his 1980s childhood in run-down public housing in Glasgow with a glamourous but alcoholic mum. the subject matter may seem a tad dark, but shuggie’s heart will warm you. i couldn’t put it down.
