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

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.
