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.

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.

Fashion advice of the day!

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”.

Mostly Kodak Ektachrome slides, the images are being offered with copyright, something of a rarity. The sale includes more than 3,700 shots of Monroe; many never have been seen publicly.

Perception is just a step!

I found an article today at one of my friends that I admire a lot, Macnetize, about one of those situations that affects poor people and most of us don’t know about. Yolanda Domínguez how is a Spanish artist that confronts passersby with disquieting urban actions that aim to generate social criticism and a reaction, has strake again.

I think that all of us have heard the horrible stories about how fashion brands have factories in poor country and are exploiting children for the good of their paychecks.

This activity is a result of a terrifying tragedy that took place in a factory in Bangladesh, where on the 24th of April the roof of various textile workshops collapsed and killed 1,127 workers.

Yolanda Domínguez, made an urban action, called “Fashion Victims” in Madrid inspired by the recent events in order to bring into the light of day the real “fashion victims”: the enslaved workers, child exploitation and the millions harmed by the poor conditions in the factories they are forced to work.

The idea was this: various bloggers appear buried under rubble in a one of the most fashionable street of Madrid, only some extremities with luxurious accessories (bags, shoes, and others) were felt outside in order to remind us of the images published from the tragedy in Bangladesh in which arms and legs stuck out from under the remains of the building.

Fashion advice of the day!

We can’t change overnight these conditions, not me or you or all of us!  But we can fire a warning, make people aware of the terrible ways those people work in, the exploitations the children and so on. Making people aware will raise actions, will make you wonder if your weekend shopping is worth someone’s life and will bring organizations to work together in order to change or improve things.

Yolanda Domínguez, started the fire but it’s up to us to keep it burning!

I do believe that all of this is an appeal for responsible production and consumption, both for people and the planet.

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!

Hello!

I should be ashamed because all week long I haven’t managed to write more than just one post. I know there is no excuse and I’m not trying to find one, just saying the obvious (I’m indeed blushing if that helps in any way ;)))

Now, the good thing is that I when to a lot of very nice, cool, chic places and enjoyed the company of many amazing people.

First thing first, the very chill and summerish concert that I when to on Monday, last week. 

I have to say that I’m one of those persons for how music is not just a way to relax, is an extremely important part of my life; I do, really, live with music. 90% of the times there is a song in my ear that makes that moment of my life so much better.

The same thing with the concert from Energiea in collaboration with Radio Guerrilla, to which I went on Monday, last week. It was the one and only, Moonlight Breakfast!

The romantic part of me was dancing in the street on my way to listen to those notes, the cool part was enjoying the idea of having some many hipsters next to me, and the other part (I do have multiple personalities) was just happy to enjoy the music. And the music was indeed great, perfect more to say, with the thrilling sounds of jazz and the very romantic voice of Christie.

Fashion advice of the day!

Summers, is the summerish period when you should enjoy all the small and simple things available during a day. Wall to work or home, listen to sounds of the street, were white! Simple shoes, big bags and your favorite sounds in your ear will make even the hottest day just an easy, chill walk in the park!

And one more thing, do go and see Moonlight Breakfast is you have the chance!

Admire the beauty!

Yes, I know it sound somehow stupid, but we don’t do that, most of the times. We pass by and forget in an instant how amazing that place, car, statue, sky, and sun is on that particular moment.

All of this because of our chaotic life that captures everything and keeps nothing close enough for us to remember many many times after.

Maybe these pictures might make you take a moment and enjoy!

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:

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 white behind the color.

I have friend, somewhat close that is always telling me that it’s too much white in my house, because of the walls which are white, most parts of the furniture and even the accessories have a white trace. No, my dear friend, it’s not a mental hospital and I don’t feel trapped in the terrifying hands of the world.

It’s just white, lots of simple white that goes perfect with all the colors of the rainbow. White walls waiting for me to add my fingerprint through the colors that represent and complete me.

In a very small way it’s like this dreamy place, that I’ve been admiring all morning. The perfect shapes, the combinations, the sweet and innocent white that absorbers the naughty red and mean blue.

Amazing place, with cool combinations that should somehow be everyone’s list when decorating a house, their house!

 05 03 16 19 26 23

Fashion advice of the day!

Absorb the white; I know it’s very IN now for outfits and accessories but I’m talking about the one in your house, the one on the wall, or furniture, the one on your perfect bed embroidery or the tiny, tiny baby boys/girl garment.

Use it, it’s the most to the hear color and the simples that can state your worlds to the outside and the out there.  🙂

I know this sounds more melancholic and dramatic to your ears, but I have to say that it’s written with a lot of joy, because it’s just that close to hear that can be present more detached.
