I see your point!! Now that I look back on her previous style vs now I do see what you mean...I agree that her style evolution has made me not a excited as before. My own style and hers has parted I think and has made me like of her style less than years ago. An excellent post and one in which I can relate too!!!
Thank you for that It's nice to see someone share that opinion. I thought I was a freak! lol
Maybe its also the fact that she was able to take more risks when still working in russia. Whether a function of just comfort/accomplished-ness/credibility having already been established or otherwise. If shes based out of ny now shes probably having to analyze n think a bit more since shes not as well known here and doesnt wantto make a mistake and either be labelled the wrong way. Hard to repair that once its messed. Just my thoughts :)
We tend to be more carefree when we're sure 100%.
