Warsaw Palace of Culture Sala Kongresowa; Thank you muzzer for the photos!

So what’s with the glasses, eh?* According to this dame here it should seem that I’m on a man-repelling agenda but no, if I had that kind of social fluency I wouldn’t be living with 18 diseased cats. No, I’m allergic to cats, and I have a boyfriend – that guy standing behind me, that’s him. I keep telling him to move out of the frame but apparently he’s not up for long-distance relationship just yet. One of the Chopin Music Academy students in our church was picked to perform with 9 top tenors in Poland, and of course I had to make an appearance. I feel sorry for the concert hall staff for having to install all the red seats in my honour.

Wow the blurb is getting lamer by the post. I blame diseased cat #4. OK SHUTTING UP.

*Forgot my contacts in London is all.

    I was tickled that all the photographs have a colour theme running through them. Red, blue, and soft warm yellow. Is it your graphic design tendencies shining through?
    Definitely inspiring me to photograph everything. You can make the most un-fashion related stuff fashionable. x

  4. I love the architecture of the building so much! Your outfit is really nice too

  5. These photos transport me to that night, they’re amazing.

  6. Yeah I was about to say ‘what’s with the magnifying glasses?’, get the Silhouette ones I can’t see your pretty eyez.

    The concert hall is beautiful and the red coloured seats…matches with your trews hahahaha.

    I lived at the Intercontinental Hotel for 5 months… I miss that view! x

  8. I like the blue/red combo. So snazzy!

  9. Love the glasses and the whole look. I just found your blog and am following you immediately – I miss London, used to live there <3

  10. I really like the shirt you’re wearing, the galactic print on it is so cool, and you match it really nicely with the red pants.

  11. You always mix colours so well, another beautiful outfit!

  12. I couldn’t understand the title of the post though I’m Polish. I thought “Gala” is a name and “Tenerow” is a surname. Hahah, so funny :) (you should write “TenOrow”, not “TenErow”)

  13. @Marilyn I think this is the first time in my life a person says the she loves the architecture of the building, namely the Palace of Culture and Science that Sala Kongresowa is a part of :) But on the other hand people either love it or hate it. It is a very strange, ugly building but, at least from my point of view, so rooted in the Warsaw center landscape that I do not imagine the situation I get out of the Central Station and it is not there.
    And it’s really worth visiting. You may discover other places besides Sala Kongresowa!
    Cool colour combo Shini!:)

  14. Great shots! Love all the colors and compositions of shots you put together. I recently have been following your blog and really enjoy it. I’m a fellow designer as well. Thanks for sharing all your photos. :)

  15. really amazing shots!
    <3

  16. wow! sala kongesowa on your photos seems an elegant place :P

    (last day of my GIVE-AWAY)

  17. Bhaahah Pani Gala. Yes, changed, THANK YOU hahaa

  18. Haha yah, there’s a saying where the happiest Poles are those who work inside the Palace of Culture because they don’t see it from the outside. The building reminds the Polish of the communist times because it was a gift from Stalin ;) Right Karo?

  19. raniinar

    love the architectural shots, very beautiful.

  20. I’m a big fan of your t-shirt!

  21. Karolina

    @Shini, yes, all true!
    wow, I miss Warsaw very much right now…

  23. Here I am… feeling all sorry for you that you aren’t in London… and really you are just going around to fancy shmancy events like this?! Having red seats laid out in your honour…?! Sheeesh.

    Beautiful photos and such an honour for the person at your church! Loving your outfit with all the bold colours! I guess stealing Burberry coats is one plus of being back home…?

    p.s. your boyfriend looks hot.

  24. Cute boyfriend! ;)
    Well, installing the red seats it was the least they could do. What about the red carpet? Do they forget that?=)
    Seriously, beautiful photos! Love the outfit, especially the blue trench.

  25. I am such a keen follower of your blog! The pictures are always beautiful, your style so origional and the ‘blurbs’…! Always hilarious. Thanks for it all!
    I hope you have the time to visit my humble abode… I will keep on being inspired by Park and Cube until I get there!
    God bless,

  26. I can see the Palace of Culture from my bedroom window and it looks quite good from such distance, especially in the dark, while so colorful. It looks like a mermaid’s tail.

  27. Your mom has a great coat!

  28. So cute to see someone else in fashion wearing glasses too! :)

  29. I wish my mom had a beautiful jacket like that in her closet!

  30. The Palace of Culture looks so beautiful in these pictures! I like that place, I used to attend batik classes there. And i like the contrast between that building and modern sky scapers and shopping centres surrounding it. I couldn’t imagine Warsaw without that weird brown block in its heart, haha.
    By the way, I love your galaxy print body!

  32. Nice pics. :)

    hahaha although I really hate all the centre of Warsaw theres this really awful thing about holidays returns and all, every time I’m coming out from the central station -suddenly know I’m home aaaaaaa

    and Shini, during reading this posts – I was really LAUGHING OUT LOUD

  34. Hi,
    I really like your blog! You take beautiful pictures :)

    X

  35. You’re cute… and your pants match the seats. Win Win all around.

    Come back to London already lady, jhezze!

  36. red looks great on you! and dont mind what they say about your glasses, they suit you fine :)

  37. martyna

    I’m wondering about the reason why you so often visit Poland. Gala Tenorów? seriously?

  38. Na serio, czemu nie? ;) If you’ve been following my blog for a little while you’ll realise I grew up in Poland.

  39. martyna

    @Shini, ok :D now i understand, i’m reading your blog not so long, so i didn’t know about that :)

  40. Hahaa that’s fine! ;) I think I should actually highlight that in my ‘profile’, it might be a little weird to other people haha

  41. Its nice to hear that someone like this building; and it was nice to have some one like u in Warsaw street , probably because of U warsaw was full of colors cause of uour outfit wih one is like always amazing:)

  42. Sara

    I <3 your glasses. Makes you look like a female Harry Potter, which I think is a very high compliment indeed! Not a man repellent by any means!

    Just out of curiosity – what church do you attend in London? Do they have many services?

  43. Hey there outstanding blog! Does running a blog such as this take a great deal of
    work? I’ve no knowledge of computer programming but I was hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyways, if you have any recommendations or tips for new blog owners please share. I understand this is off topic but I just wanted to ask. Cheers!

  44. I love the quality of your photos … and your blue coat – wow!!! xoxo from berlin

  45. It’s perfect time to make a few plans for the longer term and it is time to be happy. I’ve
    learn this post and if I may I desire to recommend you few interesting things or tips.
    Perhaps you could write next articles relating to this article.
    I desire to learn more issues about it!

  46. Hello would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using? I’m
    planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to
    ask!
