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.
