Faux Fur

Hi. I don't know about you, but I never made New Year's resolutions in my life. The reason for this is that I believe when you really want something to happen, you make it happen, PERIOD.
No promises, no wishes, just ACTIONS. So, if there's something missing in your life, why waste time trying to convince yourself that you need to go get it?
 I guess we all need reasons to start something or to quit something, but what's there to think about if that's truly the best thing for you?
What I am trying to say is, don't wait for January 1st to quit smoking, or to start exercising, do it as soon as possible if these things bother you. Start Today and see the results Tomorrow.
Ok, that might have been a little too dramatic even for me. Let's move on to another topic.

A couple of weeks ago I entered a fashion contest held by Elle Romania and one of my outfits won. My prize is a Gift Voucher, so, you can imagine how excited I am about this since I love to shop. Thank you Elle and Sprider for organizing this cool contest.

The other exciting news I want to share with you is that one of my outfits has been chosen to appear on a Spanish style magazine called Vanidad (for their online section “The look of the day”)
You can check it out here
There is also a small interview in Spanish that I translated for you, you can read in English at my Features and Interviews page here 

Now, there are only a few days left until this year ends and I want to let you know how grateful I am for everything that has happened to me this past year.
I don't want to sound cheesy now, but I want to thank all of you who take the time to visit my blog and comment. I really appreciate all of your support, you made this year so much better for me. I hope you will still be by my side in 2011.

Biker Jacket

Hi. How is you weekend so far? I have a feeling you are all buried under Christmas decorations and busy running around in your quest to find the perfect gifts for your loved ones. Ah, the joy that Christmas brings to our hearts... Carols can be heard all day long, the smell of cinnamon is everywhere, it certainly is the most magical time of the year. 
So... Why am I the only one not feeling this holiday? I honestly can't recall the last time I was excited about Christmas. I feel like Grinch this time of year, I don't even know the reason.
Sure, I felt betrayed and confused when I found out that Santa wasn't real, sure, I always hated the food on our table, everything was made out of meat and even though I couldn't stand meat I had to eat it because that was the "tradition", but that doesn't mean... Oh, it all came back to me now, never mind.
I kid, I kid, hope that my recollections of Christmas didn't ruin your jolly mood.
About today's outfit, I am wearing another hat borrowed from my mom's closet. I keep finding these amazing clothes at her, I can't help it. Yesterday, for example, I found a maxi black skirt that I can't wait to wear. The biker jacket was a purchase I've made a couple of years ago when I was quite rebellious. I was going to buy myself a motorcycle and travel across my country, too bad I soon realized I don't even know how to ride a bike. Oh well, some other time I guess.

Plaid dress

Hi. Do not trust the Sun and I am not talking about the tabloid. I am talking about the deceiving star that shines so bright. There I was lying in bed yesterday morning, thinking " It looks like a warm day, I should go outside for a walk". Little did I know that what seemed to be a fine day for science, turned out to be the coldest day this year had so far.
I am surprised that none of my photos came out blurry from all the shaking that was going around. I cannot handle cold but that's something that I will have to endure these next couple of months.
Ok, now, about my outfit. The faux fur hat is something I "borrowed" from my mother's closet. I plan on giving it the summer (hope my mom won't read this). 
Whenever I wear my green plaid dress with these brown leather boots, for some reason, I feel like a forest ranger. I kept reminding people in the park that they weren't allowed to feed squirrels.

Knitted beret

Hi. In case you are wondering, what on Earth am I doing wearing short sleeve in December, don't worry, I am not that crazy. These pictures are actually taken a couple of weeks ago. We had a very warm autumn, but I knew winter won't be kind, so I prepared myself by taking enough outfit pictures to last me through the winter. Ok, enough about the weather report.
You might have noticed in my last posts, that I've been hiding away my bangs. Well, I am giving up on my bangs. My fringe and I had a good relationship till now, but like Nelly Furtado said, " all good things come to an end".

I had to buy hats, caps, berets in order to complete "my mission" and this purple knitted beret is just one of my "weapons"against bangs.  Hopefully, I will be able to show you a new hairstyle in a couple of months.
P.S. This month I am feeling festive, therefore I made some changes for my header picture. Hope you like it.
