A Lady Loves Her Pencil Skirt

The 1940s & a fashion genius called Christian Dior left an extraordinar legacy to the fashion world, while a small part of it was a simple cut, tight and narrow skirt going just over the knees: the pencil skirt. Pencil skirts are one of the classiest clothing items for me, a must have in a lady's wardrobe, uniting elegance and sex appeal in an amazing way! Would I dress up elegantly every day (which I obviously don't), I guess I would live in pencil skirts :)

When you need to dress up (interview, convention, business lunch etc.), but not sure if a suit would be too much (or just too boring :) !), a pencil skirt paired with a ruffled shirt, a knit top or even a plain white shirt accesorized with a statement necklace is definitely a choice you cannot go wrong with! Don't ever think of going for any other shoes than sexy high heels, unless you're 2m tall :)

Attending a wedding of dear friends at the civil registry office, was the perfect occasion to slip into my grey Esprit pencil skirt, pairing it with a knit Ziggo top and high heeled Oxfords. The oversized pearls gave the whole outfit a little playful touch, just like my carrot red hair! I had a slim brown belt prepared for this outfit, but forgot to put it on in the rush of being on time...

Bling Bling Alert - The Statement Necklace

When it comes to accesories sometimes big is just better and more is just the right amount, especially in regards to statement jewellery, like big earrings, rings or sensational statment necklaces, my newest passion. I just can't get enough of them! One of those biggies can do so much for the most simple of outfits, like styling up a combo of comfy jeans shorts and a white top or taking a simple dress from normal to fabulous.

Probably it's either love or hate, since statement necklaces can really not go by unnoticed. For me it's LOVE and a must wear for this season and others to come! Dare to wear BIG!

Below are my current faves: oversized fake pearls, a golden-black chandelier necklace and a bit of the ocean magic :)

A Playground of Tulle and Lace called Chotronette

Sunny Iasi.

Me, my sweet Mina & her fiance Alex drove off to pick a very special dress for an even more special occasion, while I had the great honor to play stylist (thanks, Mina <3).

A bit outside of Iasi, a courtyard with container offices, men in overalls at work in the back, two beautiful, enormous and furry dogs barking at us coming closer, peaceful geese, some walking around, some sitting by the water and then a cute redhead greeting us and holding the door open to a fashionistic wonderland, the Chotronette showroom!

In absolute contrast with the rough edge courtyard, there they were, hanging peacefully and colorful, delicious lace and tulle dresses ...and I was mesmerized, this was the tulle paradise!
Look, feel, touch, try on, smile and then the same routine again...both me and Mina felt like two happy little girls playing with their favorite toys while our adorable redheaded hosts Silvia & Laura offered their full support & understanding with us carrying half of the clothes to and from the changing room:)

And then...finally, we made a decision and the perfect engagement dress was designed in our minds - to be delivered soon!

Pick your style, choose your colors, send in your measures and a little, tulle Chotronette fairy tale could be yours!...and the prices are great!!!

Thank you so much Silvia & Laura for making us feel welcome, comfortable & super happy in your showroom!

H&M AW2011 Preview

Uuuuuuh, just read this great post of Glamour Bbey that I had to share with you (click on post title to check out her great blog) and I can say I am already excited about some chillier days to wear all these great pieces!
Actually , when I come to think about it...I love chillier temperatures around 15-16 degreees most when it comes to dressing up, just the right weather to still wear tights (which I am a great fan of!) and play with texture layering!

Enjoy the thrill of waiting :)

Reggae Moods

"Life is one big road with lots of signs. So when you riding through the ruts, don’t complicate your mind. Flee from hate, mischief and jealousy. Don’t bury your thoughts, put your vision to reality"

Bob Marley

Did I ever tell you I love reggae music? Well, I do and last Sunday was a really special night, since Gentleman played, accompanied by a great band and preceeded by a few talented Romanian musicians...An electrifying night under a starlit sky, a dancing and singing happy crowd, goose bumps all over, the mellow sound of a saxophone, the backbeat drums, the divine backing vocals and the unique hoarse voice of Gentleman were all just right to make it a perfect night for the soul :)
Hugs & Kisses,

Wrapped in Chinese Silk

Hey Sweeties,
blogging on the run during a very busy weekend :)

Yesterday night we attended a friend's wedding and this is what I wore: a chinese silk vintage dress in orange. And like my most special and beloved vintage treasures, this silky wonder has it's own little story: it belonged to my mom and she wore it for her university graduation ball. It was custom made. Luckily we have the same size and not much trimming was needed for it to fit just perfectly!

Was so proud to wear it, the color is just amazing and the cut is a timeless evidence of the most classy fashion style.

Am off to the Gentleman concert, so excited...enjoy the rest of this lovely weekend :)

Hugs & Kisses,
