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...

Rose Quartz and Serenity @Milan Fashion Week

Pantone Institute decided that rose quartz (pink) and Serenity (baby blue) are the colors of 2016. It is the first year that Pantone decided that the color of the year is represented by two shades instead of one. An association that I find very interesting. Keeping this trend in mind, for Milan, I prepared an outfit in this color combo. I chose a retro rose quartz coat from Spoff. The baby blue shade went in the accessories. Let me tell you that small bags are considered very stylish this season. A true challenge, no? My Musette bag, besides my lipstick, credit card and phone, didn't fit anything else. What would put in a bag if you were to choose only 3...

All white @Milan Fashion Week

We know that all black outfits flatters all types of bodies and we also know that the little black dress is our friend when we don't know what to wear. If we still are in this area of monochrome outfits, what if you go the opposite pole? What do you think about all white outfits? I have to confess that I always admired this trend. Although I wanted to try this style exercise, I had to overcome some mental thresholds. First, If we choose to pieces that match our figure, we see that white does not add weight. At all! Secondly, do not be tempted to think all white is the perfect outfit for summer. White outfits look perfect in...

How to spend 7 amazing days in Tenerife – part 1

What to do 7 days in Tenerife To swim in the ocean, at 28 degrees, in January, while in Bucharest are -15 degrees, there’s no need to fly around half the globe. I chose to spend a one week vacation on an exotic island which isn’t that far from Europe. More exactly, in Tenerife, where you can go with line flights ( the stopover can be strenous - 7 hours in Madrid) or with low cost flights ( like Ryannair). It depends how much you are willing to spend on the ticket. Attention, because many times the low-cost airline baggage extra costs can be 2-3 the ticket itself. But let’s get over the little transport details and tell you what Tenerife meant to...

Denim essentials

Denim Essentials It’s part of our daily routine, accompanied important moments in history,  occurs in the 17th century, comes from the city of Nimes and becomes and emblematic element in America, and in the 50s material is commonly used by everyone. Denim, because that’s what I’m talking about, is one of the few fabrics that transited easily through time. We don’t know what would have happened with this fabric if it wasn’t for Leob Strauss. He is the one who produced the emblematic Levi’s jeans and Jacob Davis patented the use of staples for a strengthening the seams. From this point the jeans history starts, while the  designers of big fashion houses always used this fabric and kept in trend. Denim articles are...

Five reasons to choose short hair in 2016

The new year couldn’t start without a little look change. It isn’t a radical change like last year, but, truth be told, I ended up wishing short hair like my son. I always wanted this type of hairstyle and I don’t regret taking this step. Lots of my friends ask me if it’s easier or more complicated to maintain this kind of hairstyle. So, I thought of 5 reasons why should get a short hairstyle. I style it in 5 minutes. Don’t imagine that I don’t need to go the hairdresser… But not so often as I did when I had long hair. And, thank God, it’s very good, because in those hours I spent at the hairdresser, now I get work...

My top 10 wishes for 2016

The end of the year was a little busy for me, so I haven’t had the chance to make a list with what I want to accomplish in 2016.  Only now, after the busy period ended, I managed to sit in front of my laptop and set 10 targets for this year. A list to help me to better mobilize & view clearer where I'm going and what to do better. In addition, I can return to it throughout the year and asses if I respect the proposed targets. 1. To keep me and my family on a healthy lifestyle. It sounds cliché, but it’s the most important aspect. I see and hear of serious situations that could confirm the fact...
