Hi there guys!
I am back in Bucharest from my vacation and currently I am watching World Figure Skating Championships sice I am crazy about skating, I wish I were a preffesional skater, but maybe in another life.
I am wearing here my self made suede shorts, I finally got a chance to wear them, they turned out pretty great for my first attempt, yey! You can't imagine my satisfaction when I see a great result of my work. And I just adore the orange-blue contrast, oh and I finally found a owl necklace, I have been obsessed with owls lately.

Wearing: self-made shorts, vintage jacket and bag, H&M tights, random shoes, Parfois earrings, gifted rings, Elisa sweater, Takko top, Glow necklace

I have been listening to this song from The Cure today and it's been hypnotizing me all night, and when looking through these photos while it played in the background it felt like a completed puzzle. I have always been enchanted by forests and rarely I got the occasion to shot decent photos, due to the low light. Yesterday I went for a walk, this forest is very much in my hometown, it's like a park, and lots of people walk in it, so I took the chance and played around in the woods.
Tomorrow I am heading back to Bucharest, my short vacation is over but my birthday is coming up shortly. Hopefully in won't rain.
And this is my 100th post! Hooray!

Today was great, a bit too windy, but perfect for that H&M floaty skirt, therefor I was in the mood for a long photo shoot and we took hundreds of photos, so I hardly manage to select only these.
A friend of mine donated me that jacket since she was bored with it and you know, why refuse? She is like a thrift store, haha. And don't you just love that brooch?
I trust you all have a Happy Easter with your loved ones, I am spending time with my family and eating lots and lots of food and goodies! Yay for holidays!

Ok, maybe it's not such a wodnerful world but I felt really optimistic that day due to the sun and the very nice warm weather! These photos were taken two days ago - I took my very first self made skirt out in the sunshine, I have arrived this morning in my hometown for the Holidays, and I am going to spent some time with my family and loved ones, enjoying the incredibly warm weather here too!

DIY Skirt

I thought of making a skirt today from fabric leftovers and I said to myself "let's make a tutorial"
I have no idea how good I am at explaining but here goes:

Take a piece of fabric about 150 cm (59.1 inches) and fold it once, you chose the lenght as you see it fit -I chose about 60 cm (23.6 inches).

Then sew where the fabric folds, so you can make the back of the skirt.

Afterwards, with the skirt still backfaced, sew along with a piece of elastic - measure your waistline for this; carefully, and stretch as much as you can the elastic so you can make the creases.

And voila!
Hope this was useful, if not, feel free to ask me questions.

P.S. Be careful in choosing your fabric. This skirt was made out of taffeta. Remember, the thicker the fabric, the more wider it will be - if you are into '50s fashion.

Today I went at the launch of La Chatterie and Pixie Shoes, both Romanian brands, created by fabulous talented girls - you will see for yourselves - and also the celebration of one year of Bucharest Style! Hooray for them! I wore my velvet self-made pants and my grandmothers jewells and I met once again my fun blogger friends, we had a lovely time and I also came back home with some Olay cosmetic products. Thank you very much!
