My kind of designated blogger

I know I’ve been talking about this for far too long and I know that everyone else has been talking about this also, but it’s really something, I mean something big for us and for how things are usually done in this industry.

Romanian Design Week it’s amazing, all the places that support it look mega cool and the opportunities offered to the young new designer, make wanna rent al old house in the middle of the town and start making the cloths of my dreams!

But this festival is getting even better now that Ana Morodan (a kind of a role model to me) has just become a big part of this through the role of designated blogger.

And like always, Peroni is always where the coolness factor is and that’s why I’m really excited to be their Designated Fashion Blogger at Romanian Design Week!

Sunday perfect read!

I never was a mean person, sometimes my kindness made me a bit naïve, but I do have to say there are things I will not and can’t tolerate no mother what! I will not go into the details of each one, but I will tell you that in top of the list is this: vulgarity.

I know it’s not the first time I’m talking about this, but it’s really big problem, mostly now a days.

And this weekend, meaning Sunday I found a way to clear of the steams with a very to my heart book. I can’t say I went directly to a bookstore and bought it, but on the International Book Day that took place on the 23 of April at Carturesti, I managed to buy two books at the price of one and that is how I found this small treatise of vulgarity. ;)) It suits my sole and I devoured it in an instant, especially because of the first chapter. Usually books, good books, take time before the love come’s in but after opening this one and turning de first 3 pages I found the title of my soul!

Fashion advice of the day!

It’s an unwritten low what vulgarity means and how it can be measured, but the last changes in fashion, taste, love and knowledge of the world, makes it even difficult to draw the line necessary to not become a vulgar persons. I know it’s hard but us humans do have a commune sense that can stop us from doing the ugly thing, so do relate to it at all times, because the temptation is big and the line is very thin. And went it’s a bit too much to handle on your own I have the perfect thing for you: La limita vulgaritatii: mic tratat de mare pudoare!

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

Sex-literature combo

I thought a lot befor putting this words on the paper, especially considering this a fashion blog, but I can now say that it’s more of a women/fashion/life blog, about all and maybe sometimes nothing :)) depends on the way you look at it.

This morning I read an article about reading (hahaha), it’s a really nice experiment on how females can transform an orgasm into art through the lenses of Clayton Cubitt, a renowned photograph.  The pictures, which are in fact films, were transformed into a series called: Hysterical Literature.

alicia

The idea is as simple as it is brilliant: gorgeous girls are sitting down at a table, filmed in black and white, fully clothed. They are reading a passage from one of their favorite books, but under the table, something else is happening: someone is operating an all-powerful Hitachi wand vibrator!

Hysterical Literature: a viral video art series exploring mind/body dualism, distraction portraiture, and the contrast between culture and sexuality.

 

Fashion advice of the day!

It’s not quite an advice, it can be more of a look different at things, maybe enjoy all around you with less things about the negative reactions. Either way, look at these videos and find yourself a great book!

Transforming chaos into colorful order!

Last year I become the proud owner of a house, well more of a studio, not to small, but very well situated in the middle of the town. Literally in the middle, like 500 feet from ground 0. :   )

And three months till signing the contract, the frenzy has started: buy, buy, buy furniture, paint, tails, accessories, window shades all things needed to make a house. It was madness and for the first time all my fashion advices were not at any help.

What to do?!?! When in need ask for help!

And I did just that, start researching amazing people that know what color goes on with wall and what shade the furniture should have in order to go with the wall colors and with the curtains. :)))

This is how I found Martine Claessens, a Belgium designer with great taste that put some order into my thoughts and finally made my shopping and house look me and my space in the world.

Small wishes always come true.

This holiday the focus was on one little and cute thing that now is the most important part of my family. And because we all revolve around her, there was no time for family gifts shopping and Ester bunny presents.

But, someone took the time to get for me a small wish that was on my “for the home” list for some time now.

 

Well, all that I can say is that these small, really simple and sometimes overlooked wishes are the best, and they make you dream a million sweet ways that you can use/put/wear them.

Fashion advice of the day!

We all what that perfect, big, gorgeous gift, but life does not let us have it all the time so please don’t forget about the little basket that goes perfect with the new furniture, or the simple photo frame that can hide the corners of the on the beach picture with your best friend. They are small and somehow unimportant but the dreams they make are more than just big, they are long lasting. 🙂

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! Each group, named for a Greek god/goddess, is filled with customary over-the-top details that are customary this creations.

Test: Intimacy!

There are a couple of magazines that are for me an oasis in the middle of a big desert. I wait patiently till the next issue is available and as soon as I have it I devour it will a crazy pleasure for new and gripping content.

One of those is this: Love Issue, which started as a blog, thank God amazing people, transformed it into a print magazine with different types of life experiments in it.

The last issue made a quest to the reads for photos that in their opinion meant Intimacy and the result was a thrilling gallery of sad, melancholic and erotic pictures.

Fashion advice of the day!

First: don’t judge! I now is the easiest thing to do but you are that type of fashionista that know more, is more wit then the rest and I believe that is really important to show that as often as you can. So, in this experiment, are pictures that maybe in your/our option don’t mean Intimacy but we should often remember that all these emotion are persona, and everyone feels them different.

Second: Read Love Issue!

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!

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.

Kitsch?! Kitsch!

It was a bit of a hectic period, so all the news and interesting thing just flew by me. But on this really sunny day I managed to look a bit, on those pages, site and blogs that I admire and stalk most of the times.

On one of this, may I say a college of mine now, made a special kind of analogy that brings together bright fashion element in a pasquinade that shows, at list from my point of view, what now we call fashion and good taste. :))

The pictures are awesome and the combination, well the title of the photo shoot, says it all.

Kitsch antology | All Hollow Magazine

KITSCH ANTOLOGY is the ironic metaphor of a complex universe that evolves by its own elementary rules and regulations. Beauty, wealth, fortune, love and drama, the way we see them on TV, in vile association with what we like to call bad taste, bad manners or generally bad behavior.

Fashion advice of the day!

This one is really simple, please search for the word kitsch in the dictionary and never, never, I mean NEVER forget its meaning!

Not trying to seam tough or mean, but this is the reason some of us look in a not so good way, I think that they truly forgive the meaning of this world and all the connotations that it has.

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!

My kind of corner.

I’m about to start a new topic that I would like to talk about every week, especially now when the summer has come with such an amazing weather and tones of green.

During the last few years, in my town have sprung many cool, chic, urban places all good for chill out hangouts with friends over wine.

Because, as sad many times this year is about change and new adventures, I decided to explore every week one of this new cool places, that make any day a special one.

After the Urbanesc and the all mighty good food, today I would like to talk about Maison 13.

A place where you can eat well, drink sophisticated beverages, socialize unexpected, have fun and enjoy a really cool design. It’s a concept to make you relax, think outside the box and charge your batteries.

Maison 13 can be the place where you can feel at home, or at work, in a cool restaurant or in a club and for the ones with lots of imagination eve Paris or New York. 🙂

IMG_1154[1]

And because talking about a place is not really my thing I will show you a corner, a small location that makes this place the IT place for me.

Enjoy!

If this captured your attention maybe you should that a walk all the way to New York through this beautify house on Dumbrava Rosie street.

PS: this place goes very well with a song like this: Angus & Julia Stone – Paper Aeroplane
