It was funny, because I don't normally dress up to go out. I mean, in american terms I kinda do- I'll throw on a button up shirt and some dark jeans or something. Ukrainians put us Americans to shame with their clothing. Everyhing is impecabbly pressed with the utmost care- attention to detail is huge, they are very color-coordinated, even within couples. Also, they make sure that their are no loose ends, such as shirts or collars that look funny. They will tell you right away if your look is a bit off putting- For example, I didn't notice, but as I was taking off my jacket to take for the coat check, I must have undone the back of my shirt. Sasha, Luba's son-in-law, immediately pulled me aside and told me.
But hey, enough rambling about clothes. Here are some pictures from the birthday party:
Interesting Ukrainian tradition where they cut a peice of the hair to keep in an album or something like that- not quite sure- they also balanced cash on his head
