Here come the brides: Saturday at Victory Park

Being at loose ends this Saturday, we decided to people-watch at Victory Park.  Though I maintain that the monuments themselves are superlatively unattractive, it's really a pleasant place to spend a summer afternoon.  Bonus, on Saturdays the park fills with wedding parties come to take some commemorative photographs in front of the aforementioned ugly statues.  Hoop skirts and corsets are big this summer in Russian bridal fashion.

Check the shoes:

After we'd had our fill of bride-gawking, we proceeded to the fountains, where Natasha had a dip.

A great afternoon that we plan to repeat before the summer is over.


  1. Wow... Those dresses are comically hidious. Thanks for sharing.

  2. That dress looked quite awkward! Is that a designer one, haven't seen it in usual weddings. well, it sure was comical one.

  3. Wowza! Were those some sort of stockings on the closeup? Perhaps a fashion statement to leave behind! Thanks for sharing!


Thanks for stopping by!
