Black and white stripes

Happy Birthday, Mom! I don't know if you remember this, but back when I first started my blog, 4 years ago, my mom was the one taking my photos for the blog. She took my photos for almost 2 years and even though I was obnoxious and a pain in the booty sometimes she never stopped helping me out with my blog. 
I wouldn't have made it so far without her support. Actually, I wouldn't have made it so far in life without her support and endless love. Everyone says this, but I truly believe that I have the best mom in the world. 

Now, about today's post. These pictures were taken in the garden of Theodor Pallady's Museum.
This museum is situated in one of the oldest civilian building in BucharestRomania. 
The Melik house was built in the 1750s and in 1994 the house became the Pallady Museum.
You should definitely stop by the museum and take a look at some remarkable paintings and drawings done by the famous Romanian painter, Theodor Pallady.
I am wearing a Lashez skirt, Deichmann pumps, Mango blazer, vintage necklace and Marilyn Monroe printed bag.

Printed high-waist pants

Hi! I woke up early this Sunday morning and thought I should do some work around the house blogging. The weather this weekend has been wonderful so far. It made me realize I shouldn't waste precious time indoors doing chores. Actually, I plan on finishing this blog post as soon as possible and enjoy this splendid day. I recommend you do the same.

Meli Melo INCA girl collection

Hi. I have a confession to make. I've been a stalker this whole week. I waited and I waited like a predator and finally when the rain stopped, I made my move. Bond girls would have been jealous of me. Well, they are jealous of my ninja skills and I am jealous of INCA girl. Meli Melo's newest collection is inspired by the relaxed and wistful Inca woman who enjoys talking a walk on mountain paths and admiring the old ruins, as well as South America's traditional style.

Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Argentina, and Chile, territories that form the Inca empire, are relocating for a little while inside Meli Melo Paris stores.

The newest collection, INCA girl, will be available on March 10th in all of the 40 stores in Romania, Bulgaria and in Republic of Moldova, but also online at www.melimelo.ro

I had the privilege of admiring the pieces of the INCA girl's collection sooner and fell madly in love with this tribal embroidered print clutch. The bright colors and texture of this clutch sure make it unique. Scroll down for more spectacular South America's style inspired accessories.

Romanian

Buna! Am o marturisire de facut. Am dat tarcoale ploii intreaga saptamana. Am asteptat si am asteptat asemeni unui predator si cand ploaia s-a oprit intr-un final, am actionat!
Femeile"Bond" ar fi fost geloase pe mine. Ei bine, ele sunt geloase pe abilitatile mele de ninja si eu sunt geloasa pe femeia "INCA". Cea mai recenta colectie semnata Meli Melo este inspirata de aceasta femeie "Inca" relaxata si visatoare careia ii face placere sa se plimbe pe potecile de munte, printre ruine vechi si care adora stilul traditional al Americii de sud.
Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Argentina, dar si Chile, teritoriile care formeaza Imperiul Inca, se muta, pentru o scurta perioada, in magazinele Meli Melo – Paris.
Pregateste-te pentru calatoria de stil a sezonului!


Noua colecţie Meli Melo Paris este disponibilă în cele 40 de magazine din reţea, atât în România, cât şi în Bulgaria sau Republica Moldova, dar si online pe www.melimelo.ro , începând cu 10 martie, 2014.

Am avut privilegiul de a admira piesele colectiei Inca girl putin mai devreme si m-am indragostit de acest plic cu imprimeu tribal si aplicatii. culorile vesele si textura acestui plic il fac unic. Mai jos, la finalul postarii, puteti vedea si alte accesorii minunate inspirate de stilul Americii de Sud.

Snow White

Hi! Remember when I said on Halloween that I can't pretend I am someone or something else, not even for a day because I would find myself breaking character and the whole point of wearing a costumer is being as convincing as possible for your look to succeed?

Well, my friends from Bucharest Style made me change my mind a couple of weeks ago when they asked me to be part of a fun project. I am surprised I was able to keep this secret for so long. I usually spill the beans and ruin everything.

Anyway, the surprise was unveiled yesterday at Bucharest Style's anniversary party and for those who couldn't attend, let me explain why I am holding an apple in my hand.
The project that Raluca and Silvia wanted me to be part of was a photoshoot with fellow bloggers where we would dress up like characters from Oscar winning movies.

Of course, my biggest challenge was to choose a character. I remembered that every since I was a child people would call me "Snow White" because I was pale all the time. The other nickname kids gave me growing up was "Laura the Dragon"(it's funny if you translate it to Romanian because it rhymes) It was a tough decision (NOT), but I decided to go with "Snow White" in the end.

Once the character was picked, I had to find the perfect dress and the perfect apple (if you do your grocery shopping at the supermarkets you understand why this can be a difficult task)

Cristina, the designer behind La Mode Toujours, was kind enough to give me this dress for the shooting and I want to thank her for the support!

The last piece of the puzzle was the location. What better place for a Disney princess than a palace? Yes, that's right. These pictures were taken inside Spayer palace in Bucharest that is now known as Inspayer Bistro

What do you think? Do I look like Disney's favorite heroine?

Many thanks go to Florina Dumitrache Film and Photography for the wonderful pictures.

Volume skirt

Hi! The scent of hyacinths is in the air and the first snowdrops peek through grass. There is no doubt that  spring is finally here. I found this amazing full volume skirt a month ago while paying a visit to La Mode Toujours's showroom and couldn't wait to show it off.
There is nothing like a beautiful skirt to brighten a gloomy day like today and lighten your spirits.
I hope you enjoy this outfit.

Oh, and one more thing! Tomorrow the beautiful and talented duo from Bucharest Style is celebrating 4 years of blogging and I want to wish Silvia and Raluca all the best and good luck in the years to come.
