Femininity with a twist

To every fashion addicted, fashion magazines are a must in everyday activities and a very important inspiration guide.

I have to admit that I usually read online magazine and especially the ones abroad. 😀 I know is not that ok and I do respect the Romanian magazines, I have friends working there but my style or at list the one that I aspire to is more like an autumn day on a New York street or a cool stroll on a Amsterdam sidewalk.

So, today in the morning while looking for cool articles and inspirational outfits I found this new campaign I’m a woman and… that tries to contra attack the idea that if you are a women there are certain things that you need to do or don’t do.

Fashion advice of the day!

Except reading online abroad magazines, also try to daily find your inspiration in things. Read, lessen, and absorb all the information that comes to you. You will never know from there that brilliant idea will appear and transform you, your style, life and attitude.

Below you can find the inspirational campaign that might bring you a boost on this sunny day 🙂

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.

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!).

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!

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. :))

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.

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!

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!

The story of the clutch.

Let me tell you the story of the bag, because I actually have a silly story like this, which happened about two years ago.

One day I was strolling through a store and there it was: all shinny and colorful, the clutch of my dreams just waiting for me to pick it up and enjoy endless days with it on my arm.

But this great bag had a not so great price and all the outfits in my mind suddenly despaired and there was left only sadness. Yes, I can be sad because of bag and I state up high that I’m not a superficial girl, trust me on that! 😉

So the endless search for a lower price started all the boutiques here, friends that know friends that can find stuff :)) even a Barcelona despair search took place just to get it. But, as it was expected no luck, no luck at all.

Till one day, when a friend of a friend knew a friend that worked in a place (it is not a joke :)))), a special place from where I could have bought the clutch at a much lower price.

So, all undercover I went and paid and finally get it! Oooo what a moment, what a thrill and happiness to finally have it! Many plans were about to happen, but as usually it took me months till I actually took it and head out for a night into town.

Imagine

Fashion advice of the day!

If you want it, go for it, struggle and you will find the best solution. Maybe this can be an all in advice, related to any situation, but because this post is about a clutch go and buy it after you find it as you want it. The clutch, the dress, the bathing suit, whatever you desire, because there is always a way and you are smart enough to find it. On your mark, get set, gooooo!

Statement cuffs for girlish wrists.

I was always sure that once you establish your personal style, things will be simpler and faster in the fashion department.

But in the last few years I have managed to discover that this statement is not entirely true, not just in my case but for many of the people that I know or I’m the process of befriending. :))

Why am I talking about this? Because today I’m wearing a big gold bracelet, to be more to the point I’m wearing cuffs bracelet! Yes it’s totally out of the ordinary, especially since I was the one that laugh about all big golden things, but as I stated above, even dew my style was simpler and all into silver, something changed or the inception made by the magazines has finally worked. LOL

Imagine

Fashion advice of the day!

It’s ok, even great to wear a big, statement, piece of jewelry especially as its ads drama, edge, elegance, refinement!

Right now I’m quite into bracelets and I think the more the better!

Imagine

Imagine

For the cuffs, that are my favorite, you can go for studded, embellished, leather, animal motifs or whatever floats your boat.

So choose the big ones, yes the gold, bold ones that were never an option, because they can bring together an outfit, making it look not just stylish but expensive, luxuriant and complete.

To get you started in this area, here are some suggestions:

Becoming a kitty cat!

Since I remember I always had a clear definition on what I like & dislike. Also I kept a firm position, over the years, regarding different types of patterns and clothes when it came to women and men.
But as life shows us, this firmly statement that I kept so long, have been demolished but a simple friendly advice, sometimes just act on it without even thinking about what it means and what you used to do.
So, I decided to act on it and the simplest way, of course is related to fashion.
One lovely evening in an eyeglass store, I found something that year ago I would have laughed about and make silly jokes. But this time I decided to try them on and gust what, with my new hair cute it looked, well what can I say, I’m not the one to brag about myself, but I must tell that they looked really, unexpectedly, perfect!
I quickly bought them but the usually thoughts that they look silly, good on only some types of women, if you know what I mean, were making my head a mess.
So, it took two weeks to finally were them outside (laughing out loud at myself) but the result was really astonishing and the compliment, well I was flattered.
This is how I, Laura, the boyish girl with the firm attitude, became the kitty type of woman.  And I must say that I now am proud of my new style of glasses.
Fashion advice of the day!
I know you have a style and strict opinions of what is good or not when it comes to your fashion, but as I just discover and I wanna share with you, sometimes the things that seams the farthest might be the best for you. So, please, give up and enjoy a silly pare of panther type glasses, or an extra short skirt and any other thing that you wouldn’t normally were.
Me, I now look like this, the kitty cat!
 
And because somethings I hope will never change, a special song for me, to all out there still resistant to silly changes:

Be unique!

I’m one with a lot of great and memorable mentors! All amazing female actresses of the 40’s till the 80’s that changes and revolutionized the world as we know it, and the fashion of the last century. I adore them, daily watch their movies and admire pictures of them because I believe that fashion, clothes, are just a part of the characteristics necessary in order to became a woman, a special and bold one with a beautiful character.
Don’t even get me started on the books, the books that present this amazing characters that polish today female willing to absorb al this information, to change and accept new ways to deal with life, whatever life means to you and me. 🙂
Fashion advice of the day!
Be like them, were one thing that makes you special, unique for one day, but unique!
My choice, a turban! Chic, bold, and very easy to wear, the turban can be that slick way of adding something when we don’t have other ways of making an outfit stand from a crowed.
Me, I needed something quick, that would hide my hear after an hour at the gym 😀 and that would give me an attitude plus on a day outside, in the spring. So I turned for online advice to three great personalities: Greta Garbo, Marlene Dietrich and Elizabeth Taylor. This is what I came about in my hunt for new ways to wear scarves.
 
The result, here below:
