Classy grunge


 Now this is an interesting turn: from floral prints to grunge patterns. 
Truth is I've always had a fancy for chequered prints but always hesitated when I was shopping. However, I decided to give in and since I saw this particular shirt in an outlet shop, I thought "what the heck" and went for it. I loved the soft cotton fabric, the simple design (sometimes I found shirts with huge ugly pockets or studs randomly placed on them - what?!) and the combination of colors is really to my taste. I suppose my mother would say that I am wearing a table cloth and to be honest that is my first impression when I see this pattern too; but sometimes table cloths can be really cool and fashionable.

 Have e lovely weekend guys!

The floral pencil skirt - a jewel

 I will always say that a pencil skirt with a floral print (the bigger the better) and in color, is a statement piece in any wardrobe.
 Looking at these photos makes me think that I need to find more skirts of this kind and start making a collection, haha.

That being said, I am taking off because I am already running late to a meeting. 

 See you soon! 

Wearing: vintage skirt, H&M thrifted shirt, Stradivarius sandals, Meli Melo old bag, random brand earrings.

Visiting Oradea


 It's been a while since I made an appearance here and let's just say it was a slow transition back to Cluj. I spent a few days alone there, just me and my cat and unfortunately she didn't master the art of photography, so taking photos was out of the question.
After making the apartment squeeky-clean, my lovely flatmates soon appeared and we decided to take a trip to almost-nearby Oradea, near the border with Hungary. I knew it was an interesting city and I wanted to visit it since last Spring, but I never thought I could find so many beautiful, amazing buildings which were onece upon a time, palaces. 
If you are a Art Nouveau fanatic like myself, Oradea is the place to visit. It has so many buildings from that period, a few of them were restored and now they look like gingerbread houses! We did not have time to explore everything I wanted to, but there is always a next time. 
 All I can say is that it appears to be a lovely city, with many many many old houses that I love (I don't think I have ever seen that many, not even in Cluj) and I spent a lovely day despite the cloudy weather and forgetting the fact that I lost the cute pink sweater (and irreplaceable) I had with me. Oh well..

 We even got a chance to visit the Zoo and took dozens of photos of meerkats and felines. Naturally.


This fellow cracks me up everytime I look at this photo.

Have a lovely week guys!
