Being Zhenya-Refashion Icon of the Month and a Sweet Giveaway

Being Zhenya

She describes herself as an ordinary Russian girl from Minneapolis. I beg to differ. She is not an ordinary girl, she is a beautiful and talented Russian girl from Minneapolis who

Loves thrifting, refashioning, beauty, fashion, and DIY projects

Her name is Zhenya (pronounced like Kenya with a /ZH/)

She drinks cheap “gas station” coffee

Wears other people’s hand me downs

Changes diapers for a job





Wears heels

Loves Makeup

She was born and raised in Russia

Lives in Minneapolis

She also has a wicked sense of humor, wardrobe that has enough clothes to wear for 3 months without doing laundry, and a caring heart.

I am always so amazed at the things she finds at her local thrift stores. Many times she can wear them as is, but often she will refashion to make it work and share the tutorial with us.

Check out her cute peplum refashion tutorial.
