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

Beso

This review is sponsored by Beso.com

So, if you haven't heard about this online shopping site before, I will give you a brief description of the site right here on my blog.

When I first came across Beso, I was very pleased to see it has a very attractive design and that its very user friendly. The turquoise that prevails in Beso has a calming, peaceful effect on the eyes, and the touches of purple are very appealing. 
 
The slogan of Beso, “Shop it all”, indicates the fact that you can browse a variety of products. If you're looking for either furniture, jewelery, make-up or clothes, you can notice right from the start that you've come to the right place.

But you know clothes are my only weakness, so, I started browsing immediately for skirts, dresses and blazers. There were so many items to choose from and many of them were on sale. I had to focus and sort items out, or else I would have pulled an all-nighter browsing through all the items.
 
Luckily, the categories are displayed right at the top, making it very easy for visitors to notice them and choose one.  The browse box comes in handy if you know exactly what you are looking for and helps you skip a couple of steps.  

Also, you can take a look at the “What we love right now” section of Beso. I think its a great addition to the site because I enjoy seeing what the team of the website recommends, as well as their selection of favorite products.  This way, I feel like I’m getting tips from experts that make my life so much easier when I am indecisive about what I should purchase online.

Double breasted jacket

Hi. Do you remember way back when you were a kid and your parents used to take you to the beach to fly a kite? Well, today I was the kite. I have no idea why the wind was so angry with me, he kept pushing me away. I mean, we could have worked out our problems, there was need to get violent.
I am glad I made it out alive and glad I was able to take some decent pictures.

So, remember when I told you I won a Street Style contest at Elle Romania last month? I got my gift voucher a couple of days ago and I picked out this amazing double breasted jacket.  I couldn't be happier, I love it and  it's the perfect match for my Vero Moda pencil skirt

In other news,  Carina from Bad Taste Toast, awarded me with the Versatile Blogger Award. Thank you so much Carina, you are a sweetheart.

P.S.  I also want to thank Nana, from Nana Stars for mentioning me in her latest post. I am so grateful to have such wonderful blogger friends.

Knitted snood

Let's see how I get myself out of this one now. I was...I was abducted by aliens and they wouldn't let me post anything ! Those barbarians ! They kept insisting we should visit all the galaxies and I just couldn't turn them down. They may be short and green, but they can be very intimidating.

Yes, I will stick with this story. It makes perfect sense, right? Why else would I be taking pictures on the rooftop? That's where they dropped me off.

Ok, all jokes aside now, you know I've missed you like crazy and if it weren't for this gloomy weather, I would have posted earlier. I promise you that, next time, I won't let them take me away without a fight. 

Now, about my outfit. You may say that my outfit isn't appropriate for this time of year, but have you seen the knitted snood? That, my friends, was all I needed to stay warm. Ha, the joke's on you winter, I can still wear my beloved dress without worrying about coming down with the flu.

P.S.  I want to give a big shout out to two of my favorite bloggers, who were kind enough to award me with the The Stylish Blogger Award. Thank you so much Cecille and Lady Miltroz
