Dolls in a Row

Sweater: Urban Outfitters
Skirt: thrifted, no tag
Tights: Tintoretta
Shoes: Naturalizer

For the longest time I hadn’t found a good outfit to pair these tights with, so I was excited this morning when I laid them next to the sweater and skirt on my bed and thought they looked just right together. I got some weird stares at Target, but I love the print on them with the babushka dolls sweater. The sweater had been on my Urban Outfitters wish list for several weeks when I came across it at the Glendale store for $6.99. I was really attracted to the colors, and I also wanted it because, well, although I’m not Russian, my father’s mother’s family was from Poland, and I liked the idea of wearing something with an Eastern European theme. This led to my Googling my great-grandmother’s maiden name, Pilarski, which I learned is the Polish equivalent of the English name Sawyer, “a person who saws wood” or “a woodcutter.”


  1. Oh man, that sweater is the best! I love the Russian doll prints that have been cropping up, but so far haven't found the perfect piece. You look great!

  2. Weird stares... of jealousy? Because that's the only appropriate response to this awesome outfit! I love, love, love that sweater!

  3. WOW...this outfit is amazingly well put together. I would not have thought of putting together those colors, but wow they are just perfect! you do such a good job matching things!
    Oh and I don't know if I ever told you but I love LOVE babushka dolls!

  4. Thanks for all the kind comments!

    I just checked Urban Outfitters' website, and they still have the sweater for $19.99. In stores it should be $9.99 now without the Presidents Day discount.

  5. I love this outfit!! The pieces all work together perfectly :D
