Dazzling details

All these hectic and chaotic days have made me realize and appreciate at a different level the small things that usually pass us buy.

It’s been very long since I have posted something on my blog unfortunate, but heard times need hard measures.  And all these hours in a day are not enough to cover all the work, and all the work sometimes takes your inspiration away. But enough with the bickering and let’s start with this brand new start. J

As I was saying all that small, sometimes too small to be notices, details have become the pick of my days. J

And considering the fact that fashion is the first thing I think about in the morning, you can just imagine how many details I’m looking for. But for today, I will talk about dazzling patterns on everything we wear.

Put a bit of dazzling on one piece from your outfit. Below you can find some examples that will surely change your idea of a shopping spree.

Hiding from the world under a glam hat

I never was the kind to try my best to stand out of the crowd. As my mother taught me, it’s best to let the crown put you first then to force yourself into.

But sometimes, advices are made to be broken so last weekend I did, I have to admit this, tried some of my best to stand out. And, well for my surprise it actually works.

I’m not the kind to underestimate myself but I do believe that too much confidence can ruin a good person, and unfortunately I have many examples like this.

So, to a very cute and intimate event I put on the gala dress, the high heels and the all professional make up and stand up as the one that needs and will capture all the attention.

And because a glamour’s dress will never be perfect without the big, mysterious hat, I managed to take a small break for an on the street, stylish (from my point of view) photo shoot.

The results below:

Fashion advice of the day!

Do trust you mother for advices, even if they are a bit vintage for this days, the life and experiences made them see things from another perspective.

But, some days your gut might just be the best solution. And take that glam dress, high heel and wonder the street in the most elegant way possible, if you can manage to get a photographer with you even better! Oohhh and don’t forget the hat!

Lost in the big city lights!

I adore All Hollow magazine! It’s my kind all the way and every issue is a pleasure to see and read.

And this time, I found an even better combination, All Hollow and Lightaholic. Hihihih (glowing)

Hightaholic is an amazing blogger of street fashion and I’m a lucky person for having the chance to meet him in an informal place. I was preparing some interviews for a big event he was on the list. It was a pleasure hearing him talk about his blog, choices, decisions and future plan.

I have to tell you, his professional and the knowledge he was about cameras, made me feel a bit out of the subject. A bit more Hahaha

Coming back to this sensational combination, below is a pure demonstration that will make you want to buy a camera or cloths or shoes, either way we will crave for some shopping.

Fashion advice of the day!

Follow Lightaholic and any other street fashion blogs, in my opinion fashion is what people make every day when they open the closet and pick something.  This is the real thing, based on human decisions, no matter what the influence is, in the end any person will pick what their guts is telling them.

Dazzling pictures set for auction!

Today an amazing thing is taking place: over 75,000 images are set to be auctioned by Profiles in History for an anonymous collector who purchased the images from Polish investors.

The images belong to one of the most renowned photographers, Milton Greene!

Milton photographed numerous celebrities including Marilyn Monroe, Marlene Dietrich, Cary Grant, Frank Sinatra, Grace Kelly, Sophia Loren, Audrey Hepburn, Andy Warhol and many more. However, it was his unique friendship and numerous photographs of Marilyn Monroe for which he is mostly remembered.

Milton & Marilyn met in 1952 while on assignment for Look Magazine and they quickly became close friends.  Eventually they created their own film production company, producing the films Bus Stop & The Prince and the Showgirl. Marilyn even lived with the Greene’s at their Connecticut home. During this time Milton was able to capture many beautiful images of Marilyn showcasing her moods. They were close friends for almost 10 years, and Milton photographed countless sittings of Marilyn, one of his most memorable was the “Black Sitting”.

Celebration 60’s style!

Keeping the style, I will tell you today of another event that I went to last week. This one is more on the glamour side, but it has something in common with the other one, the summerish concert that I adored: Moonlight Breakfast! Hahaha, yes to times in one week, I’m that lucky!

The glamorous event took part at Fratelli and it was a big celebration of Peroni 50’s Anniversario.

_MG_3759

The classes, the elegance, don’t even get me started on the extravagant and sophisticated looks of the guests, all of them made this celebration a pure Italian, 60’s, fashion show!

But the pick of the night was the revel of the objects made by 7 designers involved in one of the most amazing design project:  Instalart/Obiect/001 inspired by Peroni!

Each one of the designers had the possibility to talk about their achievement on the stage in the middle of the one of the most chic public I have ever seen in a long time, really long time.

_MG_3757 _MG_3795 _MG_3793 _MG_3715 _MG_3709

Fashion advice of the day!

What I really liked at this refined event was the atmosphere made by each and every one invited who accepted the challenge to dress like the 60’s.

_MG_4089

I know you don’t always have time or the energy to go and buy special cloths for just one party, but this it’s all about.

The gorgeous Vespa’s or the vintage Fiat and Alfa Romeo, would have look plain and simple if there weren’t short cool dresses, big hats, crazy dots and perfect make-ups. Elegant Italian walks on the red carpet and soberly tall men made every inch of the place the perfect combination with exquisite bottles of Peroni.

So, if you decide to go to an event that has a special dress code, you should accept their challenge! Play with it and pick whatever makes you feel great or why not, play a role it’s your chance to have fun and act differently.

PS: I made the challenge!

Must-have fashion apps!

Me addictet to technology (hahaha) so me all about combining tech with fashion. Yes, weird combination but very used apparently, lately.

Starting from this idea, today I will show you how I use my precious technology to know all about fashion all the time. I’m really addicted so I have my precious apps that make every day perfect for shopping and learning new tricks. 😉

The most wanted, know and amazing apps, from my point of view, are:

No 5

Style.com

The popular website has created an app that focuses on runway coverage; users can view frequently-updated collection images and reviews. Easy scrolling makes the experience the next best thing to seeing a show live.

Snapette

Location-based shopping forms the genius of Snapette, an app that uses GPS info to help you discover what’s out there in the stores around you. Users take photos of items and tag them, and brands themselves can also upload products. The effect of this reverse showroom is to pull consumers down from the Internet cloud in to local retail stores.

Chicfeed

Like an RSS feed for real-world fashion, Chicfeed organizes street style blog pics from sources like The Sartorialist, FaceHunter and LookBook into one continuous stream.

Elle Collections

This app has been praised for collating the best bits of Elle magazine for the iPad, rather than just replicating the whole printed edition. Again, it takes a long time to load, but it is image-rich and brings together rows and rows of images from the catwalks by theme and designer. It is simple to use, too.

NET-A-PORTER

The biggest, most amazing, digital shopping and editorial site, for trendy followers. All you want and wish in just one place! One of the coolest features within the app is the TV section which includes video content from fashion shows, features on famous stylists and designers, and information on new trends. The videos look great on the iPad screen and are perfect for tablet users who are looking for inspiration and entertainment while shopping.

Close people replace all fashion things!

Enjoying an amazing place its simple from the point of view of the consumer, no fuss, no mess, no worries about all the small details that can really really wrong!

Just going there, taking in all the things made especially for you and leaving after seeing to much for just one person.

Last night I did that and it was great! Working in this chaotic domain made me think of all the hard work, but the consumer point of view was happy. :))

But I will tell you something different this time, I will tell you about the best fashion outfit, accessory and haute couture clothing. Friends!

The place was extravagant, sophisticate, cool and fashionable, but all this become more because of two fun and quirky friends that transformed the walk home into a dreamy life, really check discussions.  Ooo the walk and talk, the ideas and dreams that one day might come into reality (I was and always will be a dreamer!).

Gentlemen always have a book at their armpits!

Today I hang in the wind regarding the theme of my article mostly because of a silly, not that known movie that I sow last night on HBO, named Liberal Arts. I cannot talk of it like an impressive story that will linger in my mind for many days to come, but the idea in the back, the draft concept , was quite close to my heart – literature, books that change your life, books that you are force to read at school and without even knowing it they shape your character.

Starting from this and a very intimate discussion with my mom, I stumbled upon, for the second time, on this video. I will not analyze it, because to me the images say it all. All I can add is that I’m in fact a dreamer. Oooooh what a dreamer!

The Sartorialist: Lunch for 25, Edition III

The sketch in my brain made over the years a male character out of this word, a chic, bohemia person, all fashion addict, with the knowledge of a Harvard professor, a preacher sense of respect and a body of a CK model. I know, it’s just a dream, but I did say I’m a dreamer!

Fashion advice of the day!

I will not, repeat will not get into the details of the love life and all this craziness, but I can say to all of you reading this choose the one with the most qualities, not just of the heart but of the senses too.

Over times all this starts to fade away, and it’s so good to still have the tween snap fedora bought in the prime of the life in an Italian walk through an old town.  And if the bookcase is full of old great writers even better!

Stiletto pumps go perfect with long walks!

Yesterday it was the first day after a couple of hectic ones that I managed to go out and enjoy a few hours in the open ear.

I don’t even know with what to start, from the fact that I went to a lovely garden, then a walk in the park or the strange but nice sandwich in the middle on the street in the middle of the night! :))

IMG_1280[1]

The feeling of letting go and blocking all the questions, problems and worries is sometimes the most invigorating thing on the planet. So, this is what I’ve done last evening/night with nice company and some awesome places.

Fashion advice of the day!

Even if you are dressed with a stiletto pair of pumps, that look perfect and that should be wore at an exquisite gala, sometimes the best thing is to take those amazing shoes and walk them through the gravel of a park, take them to a secret garden in an all houses neighborhood and then when the moon shines bright go buy a Taiwan sandwich that can only, and I do mean only be eaten in the middle of the street.

Yes, as I said before, do all that with a stiletto shoes, only like this the world can seam problem less and willing to give all you need.

People, people read all about it!

I will start with an apology, because more than a couple of days have passed without any post on my blog. I know, I know that I should be responsible, mostly because I love to post my ideas here and because I do find interesting and cute things that I most definitely adore to share with you. But, these are hectic days with many crazy things that make my brain stop and go into safe mode for as much as possible. Hahahahaha, but it’s so true!

With this pause I haven’t had the time to tell you about something that made it’s already know or maybe not.

It’s about to start, the big beautiful event: Romanian Design Week!

Romanian-Design-Week-Designist-1

The aim of Romanian Design Week is to showcase, to support and to promote Romanian design and, furthermore, Romanian creative industries by presenting them to a wider, global audience. By encouraging Romanian design, the event will manage to promote Romanian culture and the talent that nourished it.

Oooo, I have been waiting for it for some time now, I even have a sort of a calendar with all the events that I wanna take part and that will most definitely be seen by my curious eyes. :))

Romanian-Design-Week-Designist-2

I will keep the secret on which shows I will devour this two weeks but my Fashion advice of the day! is to go, go pick which one of the events that is appealing to you and enjoy. We should and would and could support as much as possible our Romanian designers, the people who have the guts to do it. I know we all thing about it and imagine ourselves this amazing designer that transform fashion with every collection, but only few of us actually do it. And at list you can do for them is show some support and respect for their art!

Here is the program, look carefully and pick! http://bit.ly/141VC4W

Color means life, life brings happiness!

Hristos a inviat!

First of all I need to say a big sorry for not posting the last couple of days, even though it was Easter I should have at list add one small article about all the things I’ve seen lately.

So I will take it slow, one post after another with all the amazing things that I found, received and looked at in the last couple of Holy peaceful days.

Easter for me means life, happiness and makes me cherish everything I have and it’s around me. And because most of the times I associate life with color, this amazing new collection from Damaris made one of my last days because so nice and happy.

After the fasting which was a bit long and all the ways we repented ourselves for all that happened in this beginning of the year, this two days that just past were about happiness, prosperity, bliss and optimism! And what better way to do this then, with the full of color and life lingerie from Damaris!

Neon green with ruffles.

I do have to admit that I’m a bit obsessed with this new bright green neon that’s been filling all the stores.

So, yesterday I went on a shopping spree for dresses and shirts that have this color, but unfortunately I couldn’t manage to find something nice, or even remotely acceptable to wear when going out.

What to do? What to do?

Well the easiest thing, from my part that is, I bought a bra! Well, not just any bra a dark blue, neon green and pink bra with ruffles. Yes, now I finally have something with this amazing color for which I was craving all this weeks!

IMG_1209[1] IMG_1210[1] IMG_1211[1]

 

Fashion advice of the day!

When you can’t find the color that you desire in dresses, pants or shirts, buy underwear!  Yes, sweet panties and chic bras that can be seen through see-through blouses and cute men camisoles. It’s a very sexy and easy thing to wear in various occasion and may I tell you, the feeling of having that very private thing seen just a bit, well it’s a new type of flirt! At least for me :))

Happy first of May to all.

First time the occasion made the outfit.

As it would already been notice, I like to dress myself as good as I can and consider, no matter the occasion. Cute dresses and flats are one of my favorite things but I always try to add a bit of naughty to it, because of the boy in me. 😀

But this time, the occasion made the outfit, may I say that for the first time this happened… well it was somehow bound to do so.

This Sunday, my family became bigger, one more was added in a very cute and earthy way, and with it I transformed myself into an aunt.  Yes, you did hear it right I now have a huge responsibility to teach this little one what life and fashion is all about. So, the first impression was bound to be the most important and for first time, I was nervous to show myself in front of this amazing creature.

I wanted to show so much of what is out there want can be mix that I choose to main, may I say, thing that should be in everybody’s closet. The flattering dress and the convers! Plus a bit of red, I consider this color to be some kind of red bull, because every time I have it on me I can do anything.

Fashion advice of the day!

Every time you go out, you show someone what out there. Someone will see it and would duplicate it as good as possible. So, maybe we should thing a bit, analyze what we do, this doesn’t mean we should change our style but a little bit of perspective, a new angle, can sometimes help us make the right or the simple decision that can offer a new comer a direction, and a good one!
