A bit of the city



















A few photos from downtown Cluj, where all the old buildings take me back to a medieval time. It's just simply gorgeous! The panoramic view from the top is breathtaking!
And it was quite cold, I was craving for a hot tea all the time!
Enjoy the pics while I stay for another 2 days then head back in Bucharest.

P.S. Isn't that Christmas-y shop window divine? I just adore the colorS and the way all the items are arranged. Makes me even more excited about Christmas!

A bit of nature








Yesterday night I arrived in Cluj, one of my beloved cities here, and it was snowing! Though it didn't last, it was still quite freezing outside. I managed to take these photos, before heading out to see Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Have you seen it? I grew up with the books and films, so naturally I felt a little sad...I imagine I will be really heart-broken when I see the final part!
I shall be taking walks, drinking lots of delicious tea and take more photos- my camera died this time, sorry.
Enjoy the rest of the week-end darlings! I will surely do.

Wearing: Wool thighs and sweater both vintage, Takko jacket, Moa boots, hat bought from a fair.

say NO to skinny











First..I want to say how much I love these pants and how sorry I am that I wore them so little this fall. I don't know why...I guess sometimes it's just easier to take a pair of ordinary pants or jeans, a sweater or Tee and just hurry to school/work.  Second, I am sick of skinny jeans. I feel so bored wearing them and tired of seeing them on every girl. Whenever I see a girl wearing large or high-waisted bottoms she immediately catches my eye. I need to make myself some new, un-ordinary (if there is such  a word) clothes so I won't feel like another sheep in the herd.

On another note, my project has been a little delayed, so I can be a little relaxed, so, starting from Friday I am going to take myself a short vacation.
Have a good week darlings! 

Wearing: Kara pants and sweater, Zara cardigan, Botinelli shoes, vintage bag.

Floral.Linear











Hello darlings! I want to present to you on this not-so-lovely day, some sketches I made for my next project. As you can see, it's not so much architectural like the previous one and I like that better. Basically we had to create a contrast between flowery, subtle fabrics and rigid, well defined shapes. So, this is my idea of flowers made out of fabrics, I didn't want to use the classic flower with petals. I've already started working on it - I am going to bring to life the fourth sketch- and I have a very soon deadline, hope it will go well.
How was your weekend?

One Tee, two looks

How to create different styles with one T-shirt and a pair of jeans.



I have said before how much I like to wear the same clothing piece in different ways. Here I wanted to show you how. I took an ordinary T-shirt (which belonged to my dad) and paired it with black accessories - which are of course elegant -  and a black leather jacket and heels. I like to call this "glam casual". You can also try this with blazers or any other classy jacket.







Next, I went out for a more comfortable look, so I took once again a men's thrifted shirt, to create a bit of hippie or baggy look, anyhow, I like the way it looks so loose. And of course sneakers. The more colorful, the better. And I changed the accessories because I don't need to be elegant, so playful colored beads are very welcome.





I painted the shoes, because I wanted to have something colorful and original. Aren't they cute?




Hope this was useful to you!

Purple haze









Photos I took a few days ago when the weather was warm! It still is, it's quite weird for this time of the year, it feels like Spring.  Nevertheless, I enjoy it! 

Hope everyone is having a good weekend! I wanted to attend the Absolutely Fabulous fair today but I remembered I have some sewing to do, so I am stuck in work. Hope my fellow Romanian bloggers will tell me about it! 

P.S. I made that skirt out of remaining fabrics from my prom's dress two years ago. I love it's colors!

Blue velvet









I can't get enough of this maxi dress -since is the only one I have (shame on me) and I took it out once more with my new velvet jacket! I thought the two of them work perfectly together, what about you?

I have another project coming along, so stay tuned for new sketches, a bit more feminine unlike the previous ones.

Wearing: vintage jacket and bag, no name dress.

Finished project











Here it is! Finally, my college project is finished. It's not all smooth like in the sketch but I tried my best I guess. I've never done such a thing before so I am quite proud; hope my professor will like it as well. I wonder how I should carry it to school, it's quite uncomfortable with all that wire in it, of course I had problems moving in it.  Supposedly, we'll have a presentation, like a runway, let's see how I will manage that.

Vlada in Marie Claire










The minute I found this editorial of Vlada Roslyakova in Marie Claire's October issue I felt hypnotized by her glance! These photos have something freak-ish and a feeling of dark  romance which give me the chills and I love that! The photo of her and that little doll is creeping me, and it's also so stunning!

P.S I have almost finished my college project! I will post soon some photos.
