Stay Fabulous and Warm!

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

Winter is here and it is the trickiest time of the year, in my opinion. I say this only because the weather can cause us a lot of problems when it comes to dressing up. But, I have the solution for a chic, comfy and warm look, witch is perfect for cold/sunny winter days.

Today is all about this jacket, which is a lifesaver when the temperatures hit the negatives. A faux fur collar jacket, from H&M, with straps, metal buckles, a front zip, side pockets (who doesn’t love pockets??) and an imitation of fur collar at the bottom of the sleeves. The jacket works amazing with pastels, but bright colors like red as well.

One of the reason I love the cold weather in the Netherlands is because when you wake up it might be sunny, like a lovely autumn day, and after a couple of hours it’s snowing again, or the opposite. So, it’s the perfect opportunity to wear what you love under a comfy jacket, which will keep your body temperature balanced.

Also, don’t forget about shoes! It’s vital to avoid cold feet. For this look I am wearing a marvellous pair of boots from a Romanian brand, Diva Charms.

It’s really important to invest in a good coat and a nice pair of boots!

Parisian look in Amsterdam

IMG_0114

Hello, sunny Amsterdam! 

Amsterdam is such a great city – it’s no wonder everyone loves this big city…

Anyway, today I will show you a few pics with an outfit I shot in Amsterdam a few days ago – these days with all my new life in the Netherlands it feels like I overestimated my free time for keeping up with social media and blogging, but with baby steps I will try to be as active as possible for you, guys.

I was so lucky to spend a full sunny day in one of my FAVORITE cities, because the weather here is really tricky due to the unpredictable rain. What a miracle, right? Haha!

This season it’s all about berets and of course stripes!

Processed with VSCO with hb2 presetI decided to spice up my look with a french air, because let’s be honest, everything is better when you add a hint of Parisian chicness to your look.Stripes are so fun to play with, I mean besides the fact that I’m really proud of this look, I think stripes will be always fashionable, they are like a time machine. Also, you can add a mini black skirt and a pair of embroidered boots ( which by the way, are a must right now) for a complete flattering outfit. Oh, I forgot la pièce de résistance – THE BERET – add this to your daily, formal, comfy look and you instantly become your own fashion alchemist. So, there you have it, my go-to international combo, perfect for fall.

Voilà!

D’ale AMINTIRILOR…

dsc0295.jpg

 

Chiar dacă unele lucruri se schimbă, un lucru e cert, amintirile rămân. Da, ele rămân. Pe unele le ținem doar pentru noi pentru a nu se risipi, iar pe altele le postam pe unde apucăm. Ele sunt sigurele care ne aduc o rază de soare în zilele ploioase când suntem debusolați din cauza celor din jur, și tot ele sunt singurele care nu ne dau pace în miez de noapte.

Tristul adevăr, pe care îl tot negăm, este acela că ne îngrozește ideea de a pierde amintirile odată cu oamenii care pleacă din viața noastră. Și acum îmi vine în minte treaba asta cu “annihilate your fears”, care sună ca un titlu de articol ieftin, de duzină. Însă chiar şi aşa, chestia amuzantă e că fără lucrurile astea deep, nu am avea amintiri. Nu ne-am mai aduce aminte cât de ușor ne faceam prieteni la grădiniță, spunând doar “Bună, vrei să fim cei mai buni prieteni?” și după urmau câteva ore de joacă intensă în care uitam de tot și de toate. Eram inocenți și fragili, zâmbeam fără motiv și nu puneam etichete nimănui.

După grădiniță a urmat prima zi de școală. Cât am mai așteptat ziua aia… Țin minte și acum că nu am dormit toată noaptea, pentru că mă gândeam doar la cât de minunată va fi viața mea la școală. Acum i-ași spune Cerasellei de atunci, că a pierdut o noapte cu folos, căci timp de 12 ani a avut parte de niște oameni care au lasat-o să se formeze singură, folosindu-și cretivitatea în orice situație. Nu vorbesc de sistem, care e cum e, vorbesc de profesorii care mi-au pus cărți în brațe și mi-au zis că dacă vreau să evoluez trebuie să văd lumea cu alți ochi. Dar cum orice început are și un sfărșit, și viceversa, s-a închis poarta licelui și o iau pe alt drum.

Abia aștept să mai pierd încă o noapte în așteptarea următoarelor realizări și amintiri, sau cum îmi mai place mie să le spun “reziduri d’ale timpului adunate şi păstrate”. Să adunăm amintiri, zic.

Vă las mai jos câteva fotografii de la absolvire. În look-ul din poze am purtat o rochie roz prăfuit de la Zee Lane. O găsiți aici. Și tot de aceeași culoare, o pereche de saboți de satin de la H&M.

Winter Shades in April

 

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

These days it’s not simple for sure to pick an outfit when the weather is still tricky. Winter has officially ended, and spring was finally the star of the show for a while… but it looks like winter is back in the game.

To fight off this harsh cold, there’s only one solution: FIND A GOOD COAT!

In my opinion, everyone should invest only in good, warm coats. You will definitely thank me later, because no pair of shoes or other expensive accessories will keep you nice and warm on cold days.

Face the cold weather with style!

Prin Bucureşti cu VARGAS.GIOIELLI!

IMG_0690

Pentru 2017, primul meu gand a fost sa cunosc cat mai multi oameni noi, de la care sa adun micile lor placeri si povesti de viata, astfel gasindu-mi doza zilnica de inspiratie.Cum altfel sa descoperi secretele vietii, daca nu prin oameni?! Pot spune ca sunt o persoana norocoasa, nu stiu daca aici vorbim de soarta sau destin ori pur simplu asa trebuia sa fie, dar toate persoanele care si-au facut pana acum aparitia in viata mea au creat omul care sunt acum.

People need people.

Al doilea gand, a fost sa profit de fiecare perioada libera si sa o exploatez la maxim calatorind. Zis si facut. Am citit cateva articole despre locurile faine din Bucuresti, si am ramas placut surprinsa sa descopar o latura a acestui oras pe care nu o mai stiam pana acum , in pofida faptului ca aproape in fiecare weekend am drum la Bucuresti. Aceasta noua viziune, sa ii spun asa, este in mare despre arhitectura din centrul vechi, caci aceasta m-a vrajit din momentul in care mi-am facut timp sa o admir. Totul se rezuma la timp, stiu ca nu avem destul timp pentru toate, mai stiu si ca toti ne invartim in jurul acestei scuze cu timpul, mhmm.. toti ne scuzam si uitam ca ne putem sacrifica putin din rutina zilnica pentru a ne uita la ce este in jurul nostru, practic uitam sa traim.

Am plecat in acest mini trip, cu scopul de a descoperi lucruri noi, dar nici prin vis nu mi-a trecut ca are sa fie si o poveste la mijloc. Cu doua ore inainte de plecare, primesc un colet, si ce sa vezi, in el era o pereche fabuloasa de cercei lucrati manual de un om minunat, si anume Anamaria, de la Vargas.gioielli. Pe langa ambalajul superb care mi-a ajuns la suflet din prima, si cerceii in sine, prima impresie a fost urmatoare: Ce mari si frumosi sunt,  dar oare cum o sa reusesc sa ii port?

Am ramas placut suprinsa ca dupa mai bine de 12 ore cu ei in urechi nu am avut probleme cu greutatea ( nici nu ii simti la cat de usori sunt) sau cu materialul din care sunt facuti ( asta daca sunteti mai sensiblioase de fel, ca subsemnata hihi). Acum o sa o las pe Anamaria sa va zica putin despre pasiunea ei, caci este cu adevarat inspirationala.

“Trebuia să găsesc o pereche de cercei cu anumite calități. Dar nu am reuşit, aşa că m-am gândit să-i fac eu. Astfel a început aventura VARGAS.GIOIELLI💍.  Cu multe încercări,probe şi eşecuri am reuşit în mod autodidact să creez ce-mi  doream.

Sunt creații făcute de mână,cu ac cu cârlig…Firul este de ramă pură , placat aur 18k sau placat argint 925. La fel şi tortițele. Mărgeluțele pot să fie toho, din sticlă MURANO,cristale şi perle SWAROVSKI.”

Two Spring Looks With A Statement Piece

Recently, I realised that I’ve started to wear a lot of green and khaki shades. I don’t know if this is my escape when I have a busy schedule (for example, this time of the year when I have a lot on my plate because of my university exams, school and so on).

Due to this fact, I will talk in this post about a long coat. This versatile piece, in my opinion, is definitely perfect for every moment of the day.

This long trench coat is my wardrobe essential right now, even if it’s raining with cats and dogs or it’s a sunny day, I will still wear it.

 

#1st LOOK

It’s pretty simple to create outfits with this one. You can have a classy air or a casual one, it’s up to you how you want to wear it and of course where are you going dressed like that.

#2nd LOOK

In this post I wanted to share with you, how easy it is to be stylish and bold at the same time using just a statement piece, witch by the way is the most comfortable coat I’ve ever had!

 When inspiration fades (it happens sometimes), you can pick an outfit with a slightly army touch.

  • 1st look: Coat-Bershka/Skirt-special order/T-shirt – Pull&Bear/Boots-H&M
  • 2nd look: Coat-Bershka/Dress-H&M/Heels_Bershka/Bag-Zara

I would love to know witch of these two different looks you love more!

When in doubt, Pastels are what you need!

Processed with VSCO with a5 preset                                                                    Ever since I was a child I liked the idea of a beautiful sky with pastel tones. Now I’m in the train and I realised how beautiful is a sunny day if the sky has a bluish colour.

I don’t know what vibes you have on a day like this one, but I certainly know that my productivity was on a high level today due to the power of mother nature.

Even Christian Dior said that blue is the only color that can ever compete with black.

I think these words can be a #quotetoliveby at this time of the year, especially because spring is back in business.

 

For this look I mixed a pastel blue sweater and a long somon pleated skirt with a pair of black laced up heels. I accessorized this Boehm look with a beautiful floral necklace, which by the way is a piece that I made by myself.

The weather is still tricky, so I picked a fur coat to face the cold evenings.

Wearable trends from NYFW, LFW and MFW

It’s fashion month and like the other ones this one is full of surprises when it comes to trends. I watched New York, London and Milano Fashion Week so far, and I discovered new designers with marvellous items presented on runways.Shows were more interesting for everyone, making the dream of “alternatives clothes” possible. So, you don’t need to have a budget for couture items, because you can easily adapt trends with similar stuff, at a reasonable price. It’s all about.. 

Spring and Pre-fall 2017 collection 

It looks like creativity and fashion have no limits and rules, especially rules because every season comes with new ones, forgetting completely the old ones. It’s like a perpetuum mobile of trends.

Everyday is a fashion show and the world is your runway

Also, on the catwalk this year, I saw something really nice on Dolce Gabbana show, besides the trend rules that were broken, the fashion rules disappeared too. How so? Well, the catwalk had non-models, like fashion bloggers, internet sensations and kids. How cool is this?!

Soon we will have a taste of Paris Fashion Week too. I can’t wait to see what comes next..but now let’s focus on what trends we have till now.

#1 Everything is oversized

Miu Miu/Zadig & Voltaire/ Victoria Beckham/ Vera Wang

#2 Minimalist series

Christian Siriano/Givenchy

#3 Fluffy coats

#4 Granny’s furniture prints

Classy And Stylish With A Flannel Dress

Now I’m staying in a coffee shop watching people being, in most of the cases, in a hurry and I realised that these days it’s not that easy to find comfortable clothes, which can also be a part of a stylish outfit for an event or just a stylish street look. Frankly said, you can express your style through your clothes even if you don’t have enough time for planning your outfit the night before.

 

Trust your instincts and find your signature in a statement item!

 

The 4th and the 5th looks are the last ones, because we are not wearing stiletto all day long if we are not going to a fancy event, am I right?

#4 Be Confident 

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

 

Because of the melted snow, I felt like I had the same struggles as I do when outside it’s rainy. I’m saying this, because my shoes faced bravely the water. The conclusion is you can wear heels and feel good even if the weather is rough.

With this outfit inspiration, I tried to put some ideas gradually, starting with a casual look for a school/work day and ending with an elegant look for a party on a Friday night.

  • #4th look: Flannel Dress – Pull&Bear/ Heels– Bershka / Mom Jeans – Bershka/Accessories – H&M;
  • #5th look: Flannel Dress – Pull&Bear/ Skirt – Pull&Bear / Heels – Bershka/ Belt – Pull&Bear.
