Wow, is this Russia?

It says “Ukraine”…and it´s not Russia, though it was under Russia´s domain some time ago..

A Russian cashier! Very nice.
i really like the texture and pattern of the dress, but what is going on here?
She has a really nice dress!
March 10, 2012 at 9:05 am
where was it taken?
March 10, 2012 at 9:09 am
Love that dress – would be just as stylish if it was worn today!
March 10, 2012 at 9:11 am
Amazing. Her lace-dress could be from nowadays.
March 10, 2012 at 9:31 am
Look at that playful look on her face. I wish we knew what was going on in this picture. Look at those awesome wide leg pants. And I wonder if there’s a significance to that hat? And I love that he’s trying to buy something, but that man behind the gate is too engrossed with the woman. Very charming picture.

Visually compelling. Love the guy’s head pop out from the hole.
March 10, 2012 at 9:46 am
Oh – she is so cute, like she knows a secret!
What is the story?
March 10, 2012 at 9:55 am
Oh! Lovely photo! The smile of the girl is so shy and sweet!
I love this photo and I love her 1950s full skirt so cute
March 10, 2012 at 9:57 am
They are wonderful! She is lovely in her pretty dress and his wide leg pants are too cool!
LOVE IT SCOTT! AMAZING!

Love the pants on the guy! fantastic style
March 10, 2012 at 10:22 am
the dress is great and the girl is lovely!
and btw people, educate yourself! Ukraine is not Russia, it is as wrong to say so, as if you said that Poland is Russia.
March 10, 2012 at 10:24 am
I love it to, it is a really gorgeous dress!
March 10, 2012 at 10:26 am
Amazing lace dress… so pretty!
March 10, 2012 at 10:30 am
If its in Ukraine, then its NOT Russia. Judging by the hats that they wearing (part of tatar’s national/folk dress) its either Crimea Pensinsule, or South Russia, where there a lot of Tatars n these hats r a common thing.
March 10, 2012 at 10:42 am
Looking quickly at the face in the window, reminds me of a young Bob Dylan! Very nice photo.

March 10, 2012 at 11:49 am
maybe this is ukrainian or russian girl. but this photo was taken in asia like turkmenistan or uzbekistan ( USSR republiks) . it make clear by their head caps and swarty skin men behind the girl
March 10, 2012 at 11:51 am
“I love the dress on this girl.”
I love her smile. And the pants!
March 10, 2012 at 12:17 pm
So fresh, the dress resumes everything about the moment in the picture. A moment of freedom !
March 10, 2012 at 12:46 pm
wow, her dress is so lovely! great photo! i love this feature!
March 10, 2012 at 1:05 pm
That dress is so beautiful! I’m also confused by the man in black.
I adore vintage photos like these. We’ll never know the real story behind them but we can certainly have fun guessing!

I think this is what separates you from other street style bloggers, Scott. I noticed you don’t just post pictures about what people are wearing on the street, you expand your topic into other areas and allow your readers to collaborate. This has created a very unique and more personal community on the blogosphere. You are not just one of the first bloggers to do this, but one of the only bloggers as well. Keep it up.

Please have a look at it!

Such a wonderful photo!
It’s really nice to see something from my home country. Ukrainian girls have always had good style ;)
March 10, 2012 at 3:15 pm
Her dress is gorgeous, I have one so similar, so many years later <3
March 10, 2012 at 3:18 pm
such a cool photo!
March 10, 2012 at 3:21 pm
yeah, coming from Ukraine as well I can only confirm that our grandmoms have 100 of those pictures!
March 10, 2012 at 3:22 pm
This is stunning! Both the girl and the dress are beautiful in a really natural way.
March 10, 2012 at 3:39 pm
Her dress is so cute!

Forget the dress on the girl, how fantastic are those pants on the man!!
March 10, 2012 at 8:32 pm
While, for me, the dress is noteworthy, I agree with katebate about those pants (her voice sounds familiar, btw).
Another example of an inspired unknown photographer.
March 10, 2012 at 9:10 pm
Beautiful photo! I guess it’s the first vintage photo from a formers USSR here:)
Just to answer the questions about Ukraine and Russia. Ukraine used to be part of USSR, considered as a republic but still part of one country at the time.
Now it’s an independent country that has common borders with Russia (and Poland btw:)). They speak their own language and encourage their people not speaking Russian. But that’s politic stuff. Thanks god we’re in fashion:)
I know all this because I am Russian (living in London though:))
March 10, 2012 at 9:17 pm
What a sweet face!
March 10, 2012 at 11:27 pm
What’s she hiding behind her back? Charming photo.
March 10, 2012 at 11:33 pm
Olya clearly states that she’s from Ukraine. Ukraine IS NOT Russia. It’s a different country with a different language! C’mon, you’re online, just google it!
March 11, 2012 at 12:39 am
Such a pretty dress! and a really nice smile too
March 11, 2012 at 1:09 am
Textile has a Missoni look and the classic silhouette could totally be worn today.

Yes the dress and the girl are very special … but how about those incredible pants and the hat the dude is wearing?!!!!
March 11, 2012 at 3:57 am
The dress of that little girl is simply amazing!

Well said Kate, I was wondering why people was writing about where is the picture taken from!! Olya (the owner of the picture) wrote already what the picture is supposed to be! More then google something, read properly. We have learned reading before “googleing”:)

It is indeed a great and nostalgic photo… thanks to Olya and Scott for publishing.
I love your blog Scott.
Further I agree with Suzannka, this photo may be taken from the southern part of Ukraine with numerous tatar population leaving there, sine the hat that this young man is wearing is part of their traditional clothing. Also.
TaniaPoli very well clarified the question about Ukraine and Russia. I am also from this part of the world presently vealing in Toronto
March 11, 2012 at 10:03 am
Yes, it is indeed a beautiful and nostalgic photo. thank you Olya and Scott… i love your blog… awesome!!! Please keep doing this wonderful job!!!
Yes i agree with Suzzanka, it is definitely from the southern part of Ukraine where the numerous tatar population is leaving and a little hat that this young man is wearing is a part of traditional tatar clothing… Also, TaniaPoli very well clarified the question about Russia and Ukraine… i know that as well because i am originally from this part but presently leaving in Toronto…

Gush! I remember seeing a Nanette Lapore lace dress very reminiscent of this look… Both such triumphs!
March 11, 2012 at 2:53 pm
I love the little smile!
March 11, 2012 at 3:00 pm
Her smile and krinkley eyes resemble Olga Korbut in 1972 Olympics.

Ukraine, not Russia (although it was part of the Soviet Union at the time of picture).

Oh, this picture is so moving ! A testimony of what Europe was before World War II.

I wonder if this photo was taken in Odessa, Odessa was always renown for it’s particular style and amount of fashionable people.
The dress is wonderful, but the man’s high waisted flared leg pants.. amazing!
March 13, 2012 at 12:43 pm
She reminds me off the Mad Men tv-show character Peggy Olsen.

Looks like Odessa, definitely somewhere in a southern city in Ukraine. A cap on that man could have been worn anywhere. Trendy peeps they were back then, eh?

he is buying a ticket for them. probably for the movies.
April 16, 2013 at 9:59 pm
His pants are so perfect for right this minute. The coolest guys wear them right now.
May 13, 2013 at 8:59 am
Olya, do you have any idea where and when was that picture taken? I’m curious, because the girl looks strikingly similar to my mother and her father escaped as a 10-years-old boy from Ukraine during the World War II. I would be very grateful for any information. A.
January 27, 2014 at 4:18 am
I love this dress but can’t help but wonder what on earth is going on behind her.
