10 rules to survive the Fashion Week

Fashion weeks are over and you’ve saw some bloggers day by day, running from a show to another in all four fashion capitals. If you think this is easy, you are wrong. Just who has been there can understand what is really going on. It is true that in the first season adrenaline is high. Everything new, you learn how things work and feel so much feet pain, hunger or fatigue. In time, however, when certain things become routine (not talking about the collections, you always wait them anxiously) you start to become conscious of the more basic needs of the body. Each blogger has little tricks to survive this period. Personally I do not know if I could last more than 2...

New in town Furla Store

Imi amintesc cu drag de prima mea geanta Furla, pe care o am si in ziua de astazi. Este destul de incapatoare, neagra si mi-am cumparat-o din Roma. Acum 10 ani brand-urile mari nu prea erau prezente pe piata din Romania. Astazi, din fericire, avem acces la toate acestea cu mai multa usurinta.. Cand am primit invitatia de a vizita noul magazin Furla, din Baneasa Shopping City, am fost super incantata. Am profitat si mi-am ales si 2 genti pentru tinutele de la NYFW, pe care le-ati vazut cu siguranta pe instagram si snapchat. Da, mi-a fost foarte greu sa ma decid dupa ce am intrat in magazin si am vazut toate minunatiile. Cand iti place un model si il vezi in...

Romanian designers at NYFW

Because I believe in the work of Romanian designers, at every Fashion Week I try to combine made in RO pieces in my outfits, we do have reasons to be proud. It’s true that the big brands are more popular with street style photographers, but I believe that a mix made only with a very known brands aren’t that original. I always thought and still have the same opinion, that you combine pieces from young designers with mass market brands and add a touch of luxury brands, you put your creativity to work. A catwalk outfit looks spectacular indeed, but it isn’t your creation but the designer’s. I promised in the last post that I'll tell you about the presence of Romanian...

New York Fashion Week

My first fashion week was 3 years ago, here in NY, so I waited with impatience to get back. I was curious how things evolved and how the shows are organised now, given that the location at Lincoln Center is no longer available. I remember dearly that location. Now, the shows take place in different locations about 3 primary and many underground individual locations and in personal showrooms. In parallel with the main agenda there are also 3 major agencies, which have shows. Which means that many are happening at the same time and sometimes you can not go at them all. My first day at NYFW began with two presentations, one at 9 and another at 10 am, which I missed...

Charles & Ron and the Fairy Valley

Acum un an am descoperit acest loc de poveste, din pozele lui Alin Pandaru si am ramas foarte impresionata. Asa ca am plecat cu copiii intr-un weekend pe Transfagarasan si am mers hotarata sa vad unde se afla aceasta casuta desprinsa din Lord of the Rings. Pe afara arata incredibil, inca in constructie, dar cu un mare potential. Anul acesta, cand am auzit ca prietenii mei de la Charles & Ron isi vor prezenta colectia lor la Castelul de Lut am fost foarte incantata. Abia asteptam sa vad cum a evoluat constructia, dar eram mai curioasa sa vad colectia.  Ce a iesit a fost incredibil! Hotelul mai are putin, pana cand o sa fie gata sa isi primeasca clientii, dar chiar si...

De ce am ales sa fiu blogger

Acum 3 ani nu stiam nimic despre blogging si in continuare mai am de invatat. Stiam doar ca citeam reviste si carti de moda din placere, ca ma plimbam pe strazi numai ca sa vad vitrinele magazinelor, ca aveam o valiza de machiaje, desi nu stiam sa imi fac mare lucru. Dar le aveam pentru ca imi placeau culorile, ambalajele, mirosurile si sentimentul pe care mi-l dadeau atunci cand le cumparam. In timp, m-am educat si nu mai cumpar chiar asa de impulsiv, ehhm, ba da, uneori.☺ Nu treceam prin cea mai frumoasa etapa a vietii mele, asadar, m-am hotarat sa fac ceva ce imi face placere, un fel de tratament antidepresie, excelent de altfel. Datorita zodiei, sunt o Fecioara perfectionista, am...

Vivid colors

Do you know that moment when you count the days until holiday? Me too! Although I never really break up with my work, I am waiting for those few days during which I shouldn’t jump out of bed when the alarm goes on and I shouldn’t run from one place to another while my cellphone is constantly ringing. Unfortunately, we are still waiting for our vacation even though  our mind is already there. Pantone noticed this year our wish to escape from the daily routine, the everyday monotony and  especially the stress we accumulate. Thus, the colors of 2016 (rose quartz and serenity) were chosen precisely because they give us a peaceful state of mind. Because I already think about summer, the...

Una Notte a Milano

Pink Martini sings about Una Notte a Napoli. If had a musical talent, I would have written a song about Una Notte a Milano. This fashion capital dressed in the night's darkness seems so special. The colorful light of the bars, restaurants and boutiques give you the impression of jewels made by old Italian artisans. To wander Milans' streets is a true pleasure, especially during fashion week. It is full of people, the style that unites everyone bringing so much joy. Though, the areas with the most open all night places are: Porta Garibaldi, Porta Ticinese, Porta Sempione, Porta Romana and the 2 nocturnal neighborhoods, Navigli & Brera. For a nocturnal panoramic view, I recommend you do the city tour which costs...

70’s- Inspired @Milan Fashion Week

The 70s vibe came back stronger. Yes, we're speaking of flare pants, embroideries, fringes and suede. It should be noted that the designers have focused more on the rock and boho style, to the detriment of disco. We can draw inspiration from the outfits of iconic characters: Ali MacGraw, Jane Birkin, Bianca Jagger, Michelle Pfeifer, Peggy Lipton and Jacqueline Bisset. For Milan Fashion Week I choose an outfit that marks a certain sobriety. However I didn't forget to add some funny elements. The Paisi accessorized fur vest in strong colors and the H&M men's shirt sweeten my look. Obviously, wooden platform shoes and flared pants from Zara are mandatory elements for an authentic look. I will return to the 70s style with...

Deux-Pieces @Milan Fashion Week

The deux-pieces is the best choice when you want more style and elegance. Qualities that I had in mind when I went to Milan Fashion Week. The truth is, that this duo - skirt or pants with a blazer, will never go out of style. This isn't the first time that I choose this type of outfit for fashion week. If you don't remember, two year ago, in Paris I wore a burgundy suit. You can see the outfit here. This year, I wore a Marie Ollie deux-pieces, designed by Arthur Dinu. I fancy it because it reminds me of the 17th century, more accurately, the victorian period. Even though it is vintage inspired, the look is stylish and contemporary. I love...
