Pale Yellow Lace & a Jazz Night

Saturday night, on the way to meet some very dear friends and enjoy good food, a romantic garden and wonderful jazz music at Shift, downtown Bucharest...definitely a night to remember!

I was wearing a cute little, pale yellow lace dress I got from Primark on my London trip (and this is on of my dresses for which I paid the least amount of money, but received the most compliments!!!), a flowery vintage clutch and brown belt, H&M brown leather wedges and beads in two shades of brown to complete the look!

P.S.: Sorry for the poor quality of the pics, but they were taken with my phone. A more clear one, taken with a real camera :) at home shows the outfit details much better.

Amazing Swimwear...Summer please stay!

Hey Sweeties,

I know summer is almost over...but since it's still hot outside and my sea-side vacation to Tenerife is coming up in 10 days :), I can't help thinking about sandy, sunny beaches, turqouise waters... and swimwear!

On http://www.swimwearworld.com/ you can find some really cute pieces and the best thing is they are on sale!!! Hurry up, or they might be gone. Those guys ship worldwide, so that should be no issue, wherever you are.

Here are my favourite picks:

My London Vintage Finds

I know I was long overdue with this post...but finally it's here! Please enjoy my wonderful vintage treasures acquired in London, mostly Spitalfields Markest in the East End.

A lovely fuchsia cardigan (lambs wool & angora), a wonderful summer dress and two cute little leather belts...Was not intending to wear this outfit as such and only put it together for taking a pic, but ...to be honest...I think I got something really nice here and I'm most def gonna wear it this autumn.

Couldn't have left London without them, my ugly little Oxford shoes...and then there was this gorgeous Aigner scarf that I had to take home with me as well :)

And I also found those amazing little treasures smiling back at me on a Spitafields table filled with junk and vintage wonders at the same time! Viva Chile!

Hugs and hope you like 'em,

Style Icon - Victoria B

I really, really like Victoria's glamour style and the feminity she brought back into the real world, off the catwalks.

Wrote the below for a Glamour magazine contest and won a really cool price :)

Dragele mele,
Victoria Beckham reprezinta cu adevarat feminitatea, eleganta si glamour-ul care lipsesc sau devin tot mai rare in lumea nebuna de azi, in care doamnele si domnisoarele de mult prea multe ori uita sa fie cu adevarat femei si feminine. Victoria a readus parca clasa si stilul in lumea modei de dincolo de podiumuri, vitrine si reviste glossy, unde inca mai intalnim feminitate, ea a readus stralucirea din nou in lumea reala si din nou in viata de zi cu zi: pe stadionul de fotbal, la shopping, in drumul spre scoala al baietilor ei...

O femeie superba, tot timpul aranjata, tot timpul sic, cu outfit-uri perfect potrivite care "urla" glamour si sex appeal din fiecare centimetru, cu tocurile cui nelipsite, care deja au consacrat-o, o femeie cu extraordinar de mult stil, care de fiecare data te face sa te gandesti: WOW, how does she do it? Si desi e extrem de sexy, nu e niciodata vulgara, ci o adevarata contesa a modei contemporane.

Ce este cu adevarat fascinat este ca dincolo de zambetul rece si perfectiunea spre care tinde ca stil vestimentar, Victoria este o femeie normala, cu defecte ca oricare dintre noi, o personalitate calda si placuta, o mama iubitoare si o sotie extrem de devotata, deloc aroganta sau infumurata. Un interviu televizat cu ea, zambind si glumind degajat, iti poate schimba complet parerea despre omul Victoria B. Este impresionat cand te poti juca cu moda, cu impresiile pe care le lasi, cu imaginea pe care ti-o creezi, fara sa iti pierzi insa identitatea, iar ea o face intr-un mod extraordinar.

Pe langa fashion icon, mamica si sotie de fotbalist, Victoria este o femeie de afaceri de succes. Daca majoritatea nevestelor de fotbalist se potrivesc perfect in cliseul "tocatoarelor de bani", Victoria nu s-a multumit cu un astfel de statut. Ambitia si personalitatea ei puternica si complexa nu au lasat-o sa stea in umbra sotului, iar rezultatele si succesul dobandit, dovedesc ca a facut alegerea corecta.

Si nu in ultimul rand, Victoria confirma zicala cum ca in spatele unui barbat puternic, se afla intotdeauna o femeie puternica, ea fiind cea care prin dibacia ei mediatica si talentul stilistic a facut din David un sex simbol mondial, dandu-i totodata stabilitatea si sprijinul necesar unei cariere istorice in fotbal.

Pentru toate acestea o admir, o respect si imi place enorm the one and only Victoria Beckham!

For those who can't read it, just enjoy some of my favourite Victoria B looks!

I really loved Victoria's shoot for Glamour mag (older issue, I know, but only got to post this now :):

Love those Victoria looks as well :) She really looks amazing even when she's going for a casual look like in the last pic shot at the airport!

Hugs & Kisses,
