Kimono

Hi! Well here we are folks, on the very last day of the year. Are you excited? I know everyone is getting ready for tonight's big party right now and I should be getting ready too, but I couldn't exit 2011 without wishing you a Happy New Year.
I want to leave you with an inspirational, motivational quote from Theodore Roosevelt that goes like this: "I care not what others think of what I do, but I care very much about what I think of what I do! That is character! "

The moral here is that you shouldn't make New Year's Resolutions just to please others or to get their approval. If you don't think there's anything that needs to be changed in your life in 2012, then don't make any changes. As simple as that.

I am wearing a floral print kimono from H&M, a coral pleated skirt from Bershka, Stone Creek purple boots and random brand yellow beanie and blouse.

Absolutely Fabulous Fashion&Vintage Fair Winter Edition

Hi! Lovely weather were having. NOT! It's been raining for the past days and I have been a wreck ever since. Very depressing ! Luckily, I had the Absolutely Fabulous Fashion&Vintage Fair Winter Edition to lighten up my mood. There I met the gang, had some drinks, shared some laughs...the usual.


This month's edition had a "all white" dress code which, of course, I didn't follow because turns out that I don't own anything white. Well, other than Tenshi that is.
Note to self- Buy a white, lace dress.


My outfit consists of a Mango green coat, a coral blazer and pleated dress from H&M, a bag from New Yorker and random brand knitted scarf and shoes.

Newtone Laboratories

Hi! Today is Saint Nicholas Day and in case you're not familiar with this holiday, let me tell you how this tradition works like: You take one kid, preferably one that has been good throughout the year, one pair of polished, clean boots placed outside of the door, one jolly old man that fills your boots with delicious treats on St. Nicholas Eve, and if everything goes as scheduled, you should wake up in the morning finding candy inside your boots.
If you find twigs inside your boots, well, there's always next year!
Buna! Astazi este Sf. Nicolae si in caz ca nu sunteti familiarizati cu aceasta sarbatoare, o sa va explic cum functioneaza aceasta traditie: Iei un copil, preferabil un copil care a fost ascultator tot anul, o pereche de cizme curate lasate la usa, un batranel vesel care iti umple cizmele cu dulciuri si bunatati in ajunu' sarbatorii si daca totul merge conform planului, ar trebui sa te trezesti dimineata cu dulciuri in cizme. Daca gasesti nuiele, ei bine, mai ai o sansa anu' viitor.

So, what did I find inside my boots? Lots of goodies from Newtone Laboratories! Hair products that make your hair healthier, shinier and even help your hair grow faster. What more can a girl ask for?
Asadar, ce am gasit eu azi dimineata? O gramada de cadouri de la  Newtone Laboratories!  Produse pentru par care iti fac parul mai sanatos, mai stralucitor si care il ajuta sa creasca mai repede. Ce pot sa cer mai mult?

All engines ready to go! Bring it on, winter!
I am wearing a skirt from H&M, a bag from New Yorker, a sweater from H&M, braided purple belt from Pieces and random brand Blazer.

Red dress

Hi ! This me channeling my inner Little Red Ridding Hood. You might have noticed I am not carrying a basket full of goodies but a multi-colored clutch. This is how I roll.
Now, before I go to my granny's house let me fill you in on what I've been up to these past few days.


On Thursday I went to a fashion show where 12 of the hottest Romanian designers of the moment presented their Spring/Summer 2012 collections. The event, Gala Avanpremiere, was at its 9th edition and it was a great success. Iris Serban, Carmen Secareanu, Silvia Serban, Anca si Silvia Negulescu, Rue des Trucs, Sandra Chira, Natalia Vasiliev, Teodora Baciu, Ioana Ciolacu si Alexandra Abraham left a great impression on me with their amazing designs.
You can see some of my favorite pieces at the end of the post. Photo courtesy of Mircea Netea


Time for some bloggers love now. Special thanks to Carina and Bucharest Style for featuring me in their posts. See if you can spot me here and here

I am wearing a red dress from Asos, a double breasted H&M coat, random brand lace-up boots and YKY.m clutch.

The always Absolutely Fabulous Fair

Hi ! I have a confession to make. I feel like these past few months I've been going through a blogger's block. I mean, I had nothing to say and I didn't want to bore you guys with lame speeches and meaningless posts. I wasn't around as much as I wanted in the blogosphere and I neglected everyone.
The lack of inspiration seems to follow me around and I don't know how to get rid of it. 


To my surprise, that didn't affect the relationship with my fellow Romanian bloggers because yesterday, when we met at the Absolutely Fabulous Fair , we laughed and talked for hours like we used to. 
They were very supportive and they understood the reason for my hiatus. That's why I love this community and that's why I am proud to be part of this wonderful community.
Thank you so much guys !

Now, before I get teary eyed and start crying, let me introduce you to the best bloggers in the whole wide world.

From left to right. Costin, Eve , Me, Sandra

Magenta Blazer

Happy Halloween guys ! I know that the sudden appearance of my post is scary enough for you so there's no need for me to disguise myself. The fact of the matter is that I was never in the mood to celebrate Halloween but I know for sure there are a lot of you out there who enjoy this holiday and I want to hear from you.  I want to know if you are planning on wearing a costume tonight and what is it going to be. 
In the meantime I will tell you about my outfit. I am wearing a magenta blazer from Stradivarius, a sweater from H&M and a Vero Moda skirt.

Preppy look

Hi. Sorry for neglecting my blog yet again, but I had some hectic weeks and I just cleared up my schedule Thank God ! 
Let me sum it all up for you. I had to finish a three month course, study for the final exam and then, I had to prepare for my master's entrance exam. Not to mention work and running errands. On top of all that all of my favorite shows had their fall premieres. How can one keep up with all that? 

At least it wasn't all in vain and my hard work paid off. I will start my master's degree in Human Resources next week.

I wouldn't blame you if you hated me for being such a sloppy blogger. I just hope that my outfit for today's post can make up for my behavior. 

So, without further ado, here's what I wore today. Since all I did was study these past weeks, I figured that a preppy look would suit my mood the best.
 I wore a cropped, yellow jumper from H&M, a pair of skinny jeans from H&M, suede leather, purple shoes from Bata and my mom's purple silk shirt.

Blue maxi skirt

Hi. Guess where these pictures were taken? Why, at the Absolutely Fabulous fair of course! Guess whom I met yesterday? Why, my favorite bloggers of course! Sandra, Eve, Sandra Jr., Arina, Alice, Silvia and Raluca.
The setting was perfect at Villa Rodizio, a beautiful restaurant that served amazing food.
I am wearing a blue maxi skirt from Kotton, a coral body from New Yorker, a multi-colored bag no name, and Converse sneakers.

Green jacket

Hi. Gosh, it's been a while. I've been gone for so long, I even turned 23 since the last time I spoke with you guys. By the way, thank you so much to everyone on Facebook who wished me a Happy Birthday yesterday. You are the best !

Ok, so, now I guess I am off the hook for not posting anything on my blog these past few weeks, right? You can't stay mad at the birthday girl. As the song goes" It's my party and I cry if I want to"

Speaking of crying, I was on the verge of tears a couple of weeks ago when I realized that everyone had a great time this summer except for me. Even my photographers abandoned me...
As another song goes" It's a cruel, cruel summer, leaving me here on my own
Now you're gone You're not the only one
It's a cruel
The city is crowded, my friends are away and I'm on my own
It's too hot to handle, so I gotta get up and go, and go" 
Go shopping, of course. And so I did. I found this amazing green, jacket and pleated dress at H&M. The satchel bag is from New Yorker and the hot pink sandals are from Zara.

Yellow skirt

Hi there ! So, you'll probably think I live under a rock or something when you'll hear this, but I will let it out in the open anyway. I've just started watching The Vampire Diaries. Shocker, right?

I just wanted to see what's with all the hype over this TV Show and I have to admit, it's pretty good. Can't believe it took me this long to give this show a chance. 

I've noticed on some forums dedicated to TVD that there are some pretty heated arguments between viewers about who's hotter: Stefan or Damon. If you asked me, I would say neither is. 
Of course this thought of mine can make some people follow me with torches and forks, but I wanted to share it with you anyway.

On a side note, I find Jeremy quite a looker. Guess I have a dose of eye candy from this show after all.

Now, about my outfit. I'll be brief as usual.I am wearing a pleated yellow skirt from Paga Shop, a blue top from Lashez and no name multi-strapped sandals.

Electric blue top

Hi. The first announcement I want to make, I bought myself a watch! I can finally keep track of time and (hopefully) I'll never be late for my meeting with you guys ever again. 
 It's a pocket watch, it has an antique look and I love it. You should see how fast I reply now when someone asks me "What time is it ?". I can't stop staring at it, it's like I've been hypnotized by it. 

Speaking of hypnotizing techniques, I am thinking about swinging my watch in front of the salesperson's eyes when I am shopping and convince him that my item is on sale. It's worth a try, right?

The second announcement, I went a little crazy with the pleated skirts this season. Just last week I bought three of them. 
I went to a flea market, one thing led to another and before I knew it, my wrists were hurting from carrying shopping bags.

Anyway, today's outfit consists of a vintage, purple, pleated skirt, an electric blue top from a Romanian brand called Lashez and no name, nude multi-strapped sandals.

Green pleated skirt

Hi, remember me? I feel like a teenager that came home after her curfew and knows that she's going to be grounded by her mom. I am so, so sorry for neglecting my blog for 2 whole weeks. 
What can I say in my defense? I know.. I was busy saving the world...Is that a good excuse? No? I thought so too.

Ok, I confess. I was having fun the whole time, meeting fellow bloggers, shopping, eating desserts.
I met with two of my favorite bloggers that live abroad and just couldn't miss the opportunity to spend as much time as I can with them. 

Mina, also known as The Faboulista, came all the way from Canada to spend her holiday in Romania. I've had a great time with her, she's hilarious and we almost laughed ourselves to tears. You can see her in the pictures below. She is the one looking like a Greek Goddess. Don't you just lever her white, maxi dress?
In the group picture you can also spot the girls from The Hearabouts, Nookie, Special Koko, and behind the lens was Alice.

The other special guest was Angie, that had the most incredible experience in Bruxelles just before she came to Bucharest. You can read about it on her blog, it's like a scene from an action movie, unbelievable. 
I am very glad that she came in one piece and that she was able to enjoy her time here with Simona and I.

My first outfit consists of a green, midi pleated skirt from Paga Shop, a yellow satchel bag and black body from New Yorker and hot pink sandals from Zara.   
My second outfit consists of a flower print dress from H&M, colorful sneakers from Nike and a satchel bag from New Yorker.

Blue t-shirt

Hi. I will go hide under my bed as soon as I am done publishing this post, so, excuse my briefness.  There's a big storm here in my city and I am terrified. Yes, I am big baby ! Don't judge me !

I wanted to ask your opinion on something. You know I am sneakers kind of gal but lately I was thinking about making the transition from sport footwear to feminine shoes. 

If it was up to me, I would only wear sneakers for the rest of my life but I can't go to the office looking like a 80s fitness instructor, right? Damn you Saved By The Bell for having such a huge influence on my style !

So, what do you advise me to do? How can I resist temptation when I am in a store and I spot cool high dunks, low dunks shoes? 

I am wearing a blue t-shirt from Zara, a coral skirt from Bershka and colorful low dunks from Nike.

Satchel bag

Hi. Do you believe in fate? I know I do. I mean..how else would you explain the following story?


It all happened a couple of months ago when I saw this satchel bag at New Yorker and for some unthinkable reason I didn't buy it then and left it there hanging (literally).
It was one of my poorest decisions that season and I felt awful afterwards for not buying it. I went back countless times hoping I would see it there, waiting, but no luck...


As the weeks went by, my hopes began to fade away and I was ready to move on with my life.
Last week, though, I gave it one more try and went to New Yorker. Not only that I found the very last one, but it was also on sale. SCORE ! Or, if I may quote Charlie Sheen here, WINNING !
So, you see boys and girls, there is such a thing called destiny !


I am wearing a floral print dress from H&M, a satchel bag from New Yorker and a hot pink pair of multi strapped sandals from Zara.

Coral skirt

Hi ! Congratulations to newlyweds Prince Albert and Charlene Wittstock ! I watched the royal wedding yesterday and I drooled over the gorgeous gowns on the red carpet and Charlene's exquisite, Armani, wedding dress. I love these type of events where everyone looks like characters in fairy tales and the prince and princess get their Cinderella happy ending ! I wish them all the happiness in the world !

Speaking about happiness, you know what makes me a happy camper? Sales ! I love shopping this time of year, so many  beautiful, cheap, clothes to choose from. I bought this pleated, coral skirt from Bershka for only 17 $ and it has instantly climbed the number one spot in my favorite skirts top.
I wore it with my mom's purple, silk shirt and my braided belt from Pieces.  The brown boston bag is from H&M and the wedges are from Mini Prix.
That's me done reporting for the week, see you next Sunday ! Toddles.

Yellow shirt

Hi! How was your week? How did you handle the summer heat? 
I felt like a melting popsticle the whole week, I am surprised I didn't pass out in the street. 

I thought that by wearing yellow I might trick the big star into thinking we are related and that I will be safe from his burning arrows. No luck though...I have to come up with another strategy. Any suggestions?


Anyway, here's the outfit I wore yesterday. The yellow shirt is from Zara, the blue shorts/skirt is from H&M and the bag is from Accessorize.

Absolutely Fabulous Fashion and Vintage Fair

Hi ! This weekend the team from Absolutely Fabulous organized yet another amazing vintage fair. It comes as no surprise to anyone that many fashion bloggers took advantage of this opportunity to do some shopping and to chat with fellow bloggers. 

As usual, the whole gang was at the "crime scene" taking great event pictures, Eve & Sandra , Oliviana, Silvia & Raluca,  Nookie signed the attendance sheet. 

The event took place at Cafepedia, a very stylish coffee place downtown that had some marvelous wall paintings and a big terrace. I also ate the tastiest croissants there, so, I am sure I will become a regular client.

Colorful sneakers

Hi ! I would like you to meet my newest obsession, a colorful pair of sneakers from Nike. These fabulous low dunks are called " Candy Rainbow ", a very suitable name, won't you agree?
 I've never had a sweet tooth, but I would eat this candy everyday ! 

You're probably familiar with the viral video called " Double Rainbow ", right? Imagine the enthusiasm the guy has shown in the video and multiply it by a hundred ! That's how I felt when I saw these Candy Rainbow in the store.  I am telling you, my love for colorful sneakers is deep.

Vintage shirt

Hi. Surprised to see me back so soon? Well, I do owe you an outfit post since you couldn't really see my outfit in my previous post. So...Here I am, reporting for duty.  
I bought this nude, vintage shirt at a fair this Saturday and I fell in love with its soft fabric and pearl-like buttons. I thought it would be a lovely match for my new H&M pleated, floral print skirt and my nude, no name heels. 
You remember my " 80s Soap Opera "earrings, right ? Good thing I can now finally take a detailed picture of them with my new camera, these beauties deserve the spotlight.

Ecochic Vintage Fair & Fashion Show by Mini Prix

Hi ! Yesterday I attended a vintage fair and a fashion show held by Mini Prix with the following theme : Ecochic ( Sustainable Fashion ). I wasn't exactly sure what this concept really meant when I first got the invitation and I am sure there are some of you who are wondering what's this all about, so, let me share with you some information about sustainable fashion that I've got from Wikipedia.

Sustainable fashion, also called eco fashion, is a part of the growing design philosophy and trend of sustainability, the goal of which is to create a system which can be supported indefinitely in terms of environmentalism and social responsibility. Sustainable fashion is part of the larger trend of sustainable design where a product is created and produced with consideration to the environmental and social impact it may have throughout its total life span, including its "carbon footprint". According to the May 2007 Vogue appears not to be a short-term trend but one could last multiple seasons.While environmentalism used manifest itself in the fashion world through a donation of percentage of sales of a product to a charitable cause, fashion designers are now re-introducing eco-conscious methods at the source through the use of environmentally friendly materials and socially responsible methods of production. 

I always say: When in doubt, use google ! 

I was really impressed with the clothes on the catwalk, the designers did a really good job considering that they only had some old fabrics and ragged clothes available. They've completely reinvented those items and turn them into chic, unique clothing.
I was also impressed with the location of the event, a restaurant called Maxim that had a big, gorgeous terrace and flowers inside birdcages. The event was filled with tasty treats and all visitors received gift bags. 

Overall it was a fantastic event, very well organized and I've had a great time catching up with so many of my Romanian blogger friends, Anaivilo, Silvia and Raluca, Ioana, Diana, Teodora, Stella. You can see for yourselves in the following pictures.

Silk shirt

Hi ! Remember when you used to sneak into your mom's closet when you were a kid and try on her clothes ? Well,  I don't because I was never interested in feminine garments. I was quite a tomboy growing up, so, it wasn't until a couple of years ago that I started developing an interest in fashion. Every now and then I go to my mom's closet to see if there's something I could borrow and last week I struck gold. I found this amazing silk, purple shirt that I absolutely love. I wore it today with my floral printed skirt and my new fuchsia boots and I am curious to hear your opinion on my outfit. Tell me what you think in the comments section below.
I am wearing a floral printed skirt from Vero Moda, a black body from Vero Moda, fuchsia boots from Wagoneer and a vintage silk, purple shirt.

Multi colored dress

Hi ! I finally got myself a new camera yesterday, yey ! I spent countless hours these past few weeks reading every single review that was available before I narrowed it down to 2-3 cameras. I finally chose the one that was best for my budget and had all the settings I needed for a great, sharp shot.

I am pretty satisfied with my choice, I still need to figure out how to use it to its fullest potential, but I am on the right track. Tell me what you think, can you tell the difference ?

Now, about my outfit. I've got this multi colored, one shoulder, Roxy dress a couple of months ago from Beso.com , but today was the very first time I wore it. I love the geometric, colorful print, it really is a perfect dress for summer.
I wore it with my multi strapped, purple sandals from Graceland and I was out the door.


P.S. I want to thank Daria from Kittenhood for publishing  my collection of Japanese dolls on her blog. Check out her post here

Purple boots

Hi. I know I was supposed to post on Saturday, but I went shopping instead..so..sorry for the delay. I really needed a pair of wedges, sandals, to get me through the summer and I searched high and low for the perfect pair. 

I didn't find anything that was both stylish and comfortable though and that's when I decided to change my strategy and buy anything that had the wow factor. 

My eyes fell upon these amazing, fuchsia Wagoneer boots and I bought them in a heartbeat !
I've always been a fan of Doc Martens boots, but since I can't find any store here in Romania that sells them, I had to settle for this similar, cheaper pair.

Paisley Print

Hi! First of all I want to give a big shout-out to one of my closest blogger friends, Sacramento from Mis Papelicos. I was very touched and honored that she chose me to be her May Blogger Feature and that she interviewed me. She is amazing and always supportive of others, I can't thank her enough for her kind words and support. I would really appreciate it if you'd check out her wonderful blog, trust me you'll love her unique sense of style and colorful outfits.
You can see my feature and read my interview here


Now, about my outfit. I've already shown you this amazing paisley print blazer that I bought from Vero Moda a couple of weeks ago, I plan on wearing it as much as I can before the summer heat kicks in. I still need to find more suitable clothes for it, like a pair of nude pumps or a pair of high waist suit pants, but for now, I will settle for what I already got in the closet. I need to save up for a better camera and hopefully, I will manage to stay away from my favorite stores these next weeks, cross your fingers for me.


I am wearing a pink, paisley print blazer from Vero Moda, a black, vintage maxi skirt, a body from Vero Moda, a pair of floral boots from Topshop and a teal, bow necklace from Kittenhood.

Denim Vest

Hi ! Congratulations to newlyweds Prince William and Kate Middleton ! I've watched the royal wedding yesterday ( but who hasn't, right ? ) and I was impressed by the simplicity and elegance of the event. I loved the fact that Kate's dress wasn't too fancy and that it didn't have a very long train because this way the bride wasn't out shined by it. I know that a lot of young women are probably heartbroken now that one of the most eligible bachelors in the world got hitched, but we all have to admit that these two make a perfect couple.

Ok, now, about my outfit ! I was inspired by the lovely weather we had this week and I thought that a floral print dress would be perfect for a walk in the park. The dress also matched this blossoming cherry tree that you can see in the background. The denim vest also has a flower brooch, so, you can say that I am like a walking botanical garden in this outfit.

I am wearing a floral print dress from Stradivarius, a vintage denim vest, a green bag from Promod, a mustard scarf from Aldo and teal pumps from Caravela. 

P.S. There's an interview I did for Mode Republic, an interactive fashion magazine created by a community of fashionistas from all over the world, and if you'd like to, you can read it here

Silk dress

Hi ! Don't I look like a 80s soap opera actress in this outfit? As soon as I saw myself in the mirror, the theme song from The young and the restless played in my head. Speaking of The young and the restless, is that soap opera still airing? I wasn't even born when the first episode aired and it's still going strong. I have a feeling that the show will go on even if humans become extinct. There will be cockroaches on set ready to act.

Ok, all jokes aside now, I am absolutely in love with this amazing red, silk, vintage dress ! I am so lucky to have this little treasure in my closet. The green earrings are just as fabulous as the dress, they are also vintage. 
I found both of these items at an Etsy Shop, called Love Charles 

Good thing I stumbled upon this online store at Mode Republic, all of the clothes there are amazing and affordable. If you are looking for unique pieces, I highly recommend you this Etsy Shop  
In other news, I was tagged by one of my favorite Canadian bloggers, Julie from Pop champagne 
to make a list of my 8 most worn items. So, here we go !

1) Most worn lip gloss/ lipstick?
Astor Prism Effect
2) Most worn earrings
I don't usually wear earrings, but I think the most worn pair was from Accessorize.

3) Most worn top/ shirt
My acid-wash denim shirt from Vero Moda.
4) Most worn nail polish

5) Most worn shoes
My high top, pink sneakers from Skechers.
6) Most worn necklace
A turquoise, statement necklace from Accessorize.

8) Most worn handbag/purse
A cross body, purple bag from Accessorize.

Color Blocking

Hi. I am sure you are all familiar with latest trends in fashion and that you've all heard about color blocking by now. Everyone's giving it a try and I am thrilled to see how people are stepping out of their comfort zone this season. 

It's funny how people that were criticizing me for mixing bold colors these past few years are now eager to embrace this new trend just because everyone in the fashion industry gave their approval.
I don't mean to sound catty, it's just that I can't stand hypocrites !


Anyway, I wanted to show you two of the color blocking outfits that I wore last week . In the first outfit I am wearing a blue blazer from Zara, printed harem pants from Vero Moda, a body from Vero Moda and pink, high top sneakers from Skechers.   

The second outfit was worn last Thursday, when I was invited to a double event,  the showroom launch of  Lachatterie and Pixie shoes and the celebration of the very first anniversary of Bucharest Style
It was yet another great occasion to organize a small gathering of Romanian fashion bloggers and I spent the evening catching up with the girls from The Hearabouts, Wonder Fashion, Fashion in my eyes, Alice in Vintageland, Fashezine, Bucharest Style and the fabulous duo from Absolutely Fabulous Magazine !

It was a successful event with lots of stylish people, gorgeous clothes and shoes, sweets and champagne. And as if that weren't enough, we also got a gift bag with Olay moisturizers.
Now this is what I call a perfect recipe for an amazing event ! Thank you all for the lovely time.

Pink skirt

Hi guys, how is your weekend so far? I was too lazy to get up early in the morning today to take pictures for my blog , so, I am going to post some unseen outfit pictures I had on my computer. 
These pictures are from last month, when I still had long hair ( sob, sob, sob ) and the weather was very cold. So, the faux fur coat was more than welcomed that day.

It may seem unusual to you that  I chose to wear a pink skirt with something rough and manly, such as my boots, but I've mentioned before how much I love contrasts. A skirt that's made out of lace, that has ruffles and that's pink, might make one feel nauseous, right? That's why I balanced my look by wearing a leopard print coat and boots. The trucker cap wasn't part of the original plan, but I wore it because I wanted to tell people that they have been PUNKED ! I am wearing tights, even if it doesn't seem so. 

I am wearing a leopard print, faux fur coat from Zara, a pink, ruffled skirt from Only, a trucker cap from Roxy, a black body from Vero Moda and no name boots.

Absolutely Fabulous Fair

Hi. This Sunday I attended the Absolutely Fabulous Fair organized by the stylish duo, Diana Enciu and Alina Tanasa and I had a fabulous time with some of my favorite Romanian Bloggers. 

I met with Sandra and Eve from The Hearabouts and they were kind enough to take these amazing pictures for me. I didn't bring my camera and now that I see how the pictures turned out, I am glad I left mine at home because their camera is a 100 times better than mine. 

I finally met Anaivilo, from Wonder Fashion who wore the most beautiful maxi skirt ever. She designed it herself, can you believe it? She was turning heads in her outfit and everyone wanted to snap a picture of her. 


Costin ,one of the few male Romanian fashion bloggers I know, was also there and although he was in a hurry, he took some pictures with us. 
Alice from Dulapul Bunicii , was participating, selling her latest hand made accessories and we dropped by to say hi and to see her stand. She had support from Denisa, from Fashion in my eyes who kept her company the whole time.

The headband that Anaivilo is wearing in the first picture is Alice's creation. Impressive right? She also had brooches with Audrey Hepburn and headbands with roses. You can check out her work here.

The girls from Bucharest Style were on duty, like usual, photographing the event's best dressed. It was so nice to see them again and have a little chat.

Bow Necklace

Hi. You know how I told you that I usually don't wear accessories because I have trouble finding something that I like? Well, last week fortune smiled down upon me and I found the most beautiful bow necklace ever. 
It's a bow made out of lace and its color is teal...I am telling you it doesn't get any better than this. 
Oh, it actually does ! I forgot to mention it has little pearls sewn onto it.  

The necklace was designed by a very talented Romanian young woman, Daria, who was kind enough to send it to me. I really admire her talent, it's not everyday you get to see such amazing handmade items.
You can check out her shop here. I guarantee you will love it.

( I am wearing a teal scarf from Topshop, a purple ruffled dress from Billabong, floral boots from Topshop, purple bag from Accessorize and a no name purple cardigan. )

Checkered Leggings

Hi. So, like I've mentioned in my previous post there is some good news I'd like to share. A couple of weeks ago I've applied to be a Teen Vogue Fashion Click Blogger and my submission was accepted, so, expect to see more outfit posts from now on my blog.

I also got a haircut, you probably don't see much of a difference, but believe me, my heart skipped a beat when I saw myself in the mirror. I feel like it's so short now compared to last week, I still need some time to adjust to the hairstyle change. You have to understand this fear of cutting my hair is caused by previous traumatic experiences. If I hadn't destroyed all my childhood pictures, I would have shown you what I mean by that. I will give you a hint, bowl cut.  

I am wearing a green plaid dress from Vila, checkered leggings from Vero Moda, purple vest from Aggressive and boots from Original Canyon Sport.

Best of

Hi ! I am so excited, today marks my 1st year anniversary for posting outfits on my blog, so, I will take you down memory lane and show you my absolute favorite looks. Before I started showcasing my personal style, I've struggled to find my blogger's voice.

I could tell you that I have always had a big interest in fashion and clothes, but I would be lying. The truth is that I started caring about my appearance in college.  I've followed school dress codes all of my life and experimenting with my style was out of the question back then. I felt trapped because I wasn't able to express my creativity and it wasn't until 3 years ago that I've let my suppressed personality out. 

I've come to realize that I have a deep affection for bright colors and that I love mixing different patterns and prints. So, I wore everything that I liked. People were staring at me, laughing behind my back, saying how ridiculous I look in those outfits. It wasn't a smooth ride at all, but as time went by, I began to ignore them and dress according to my personality.

At one point I wondered if others experienced the things I have and that's when I started posting my looks. If others saw me embracing my style, maybe they would do the same. You don't have to be afraid of standing out from the crowd and I hope that, through my blog, I can give you strength to be yourselves.

P.S. I have some exciting news to share with you and a new hairstyle to show you.  But you will have to wait till Saturday, so, stay tuned !

Army Jacket

Hi. I've never been a fan of the army trend, but lately, it has begun to grow on me. I bought this Vero Moda army jacket a couple of days ago because I thought it had some potential.  
 I knew that by wearing the right accessories, I can make this army trend work for me. 

That wasn't the only item that caught my eye while I was shopping at Vero Moda, these printed harem pants are my newest addiction. I just love the fabric and they are really comfy. 

I know there are a lot of people out there ( mostly men ) that absolutely hate this type of pants, but I say life it's too short to pay attention to others' complaints. I am done with clothing restrictions, I suggest you do the same. If I may quote William Wallace here "Freedom !!! "

I've tried to get out of my comfort zone a little with this look, not sure if I've pulled it off or not.
What do you think?

Stripped skirt

Hi. Seems like the whining from last post paid off because the last couple of days were warm and sunny. Spring came to its senses, hallelujah ! I had to take advantage of the magnificent weather, so, I went to a Vintage fair this weekend and I met some of my favorite Romanian bloggers . 

You can see some pictures of me and the girls from The Hearabouts  at the end of my post. Thank you Sandra and Eve for a very nice afternoon, I had a lot of fun with you two. Also, I want to give a shout-out to Ioana, Alice and Nookie, the other fabulous bloggers that attended the fair yesterday.
I wore a beige stripped skirt from Vero Moda, my floral print cardigan and the infamous " Peter Pan boots".  

P.S. Many, many thanks to Angie from Papillon Chouette for featuring me on her blog and for interviewing me. 
It was really the nicest thing anyone has done for me since I've started blogging, so, I would appreciate it if you would check it out and read it. She has put a lot of effort into writing that post. You can read the interview with me here

Pink blazer

Guess who's back? Back again? Winter is back, tell a friend. Hi guys, sorry for the delay in posting on my blog but I've been on strike against low temperatures. 
My demands are simple: I want snowdrops, not snow. I want what's rightfully ours, it's March 5th already and no signs of spring here.
So, who's with me? Let us march against this schizophrenic weather. 

Anyway, forget about that. Today should be a day of celebration. Celebrate what, you ask?  
My 100th post of course. I've outdone myself, what can I say?. I never thought anyone would be interested in my wacky style and that my posts will go unnoticed.
But I was wrong...The support you've shown me throughout this year was amazing. Your feedback  was the one that pushed me forward and motivated me to carry on with my work.
 I've received almost 2000 comments on my blog, all wonderful, positive thoughts. It's really overwhelming. ...Words can't express my gratitude. Thank you for being here for me !

 Ok, before I get all teary-eyed, I should give you some details about my latest acquisition. My pink blazer from Vero Moda. Isn't it a beauty? I love its shoulder pads and the paisley print. Did I mention it's pink? What more can I ask for...

Black outfit

Hi. I know this is not something that you normally expect me to wear, but I am going through a phase now and I am trying to upgrade my style. I am aware of the fact that bright outfits are my signature and I am not planning on giving them up just yet. 

It's just that I want to experiment and see how I can still wear clothes that I love and have a more mature look at the same time. I don't want to be mistaken for a high school student anymore( not that I mind looking younger).

This was my first attempt to wear a monochromatic outfit. Of course, I chickened out and started crying out for my mommy.  I just had to add some color to my look and a purple braided belt and top did the trick. Still, my look was a little plain for my taste. Nothing brings life to a plain outfit like these floral boots, don't you think? I was finally ready to go out the door, I grabbed my knitted snood and hoped for the best.
To my surprise, I felt good wearing this outfit. The change wasn't that bad after all.

Anyway, I want to talk to you about Enstyle, a great community that is going to launch this Monday on Facebook. I received an email a couple of months ago from the founder of this social network, dedicated to fashion addicts, asking me if I would be interested in becoming a beta user of the application before its launch. 
Of course I was thrilled about the idea. A place on Facebook were you can publish your looks and receive feedback from people from all over the world? Count me in, I said. 

If you want to find out more about this, check out Enstyle here
P.S. I uploaded a promo clip for Enstyle at the end of the post, you can see me at 1:11. 

Oh, and special thanks to Molly for featuring me in one of her posts. Check it out here
