No slang in the Ukraine

I was in Vilnius a couple weeks ago, and I heard Lithuanian women at the
conference complaining that their local fashion choices seemed to be to
dress like Soviet-era grandmothers or like whores.  A Finnish university
rector at the conference brought his 20-ish daughter along, and she agreed
with other women at the conference that young women's fashions in Vilnius
were pretty awful.  I'd have to say the fashions did seem a little extreme.
I wonder if this is a stage in the de-Sovietization of these nations.
