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.

The magic of the heel!

In my morning search for today’s things about fashion, I found a site that absorbed me for some time. I’m indeed, a big shoe addicted and I daily fall in love with all sorts of patterns, types, heels and most of all with that fine, very delicate leather that makes your feet feel like they are part of a royal family.

Shoes of Prey, offers you the possibility to make that dreamy shoes that’s been on your mind for so long now.

Ooo the possibilities, the models and the fine lather types that you can use, add and add again on any part of the shoes.  If you need some incentive, at the beginning you can look at some inspirations from others.

I took my time and play with all as many as possible to find what I would were today to an evening event or tomorrow morning at casual Friday.

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! :))

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.

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.

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.

Wishes on a list.

Today I wanna tell you a bit about wish lists. I was never to found of them, mostly because they never materialize and also because they can raise a lot of frustrations.

But, something changed when a close friend told me about her wish list and how it’s been transformed into a target thing that helps her on those days that work and going out on the streets is the last thing you wanna do.

So I started to do just this, I can’t explain why but this year I consider it to be the one with important changes related to all the expects of my life, I’m more opened and willing to accept and text different ideas in order to get to the point that I want and how I want to life.

Coming back to the topic, stated below, this is part of my wish list. I will not show all, because some things are meant to be personal. 😀

Fashion advice of the day!

For all those that consider this list to be a waste of time, there might be a moment when just this silly, non-practical list its all you need in order to take the next step. That push that makes you realize this is your chance and you should go for it.

So go for it, make the wish list and add those extremely expensive things you are sure you can’t even buy and one day you might just have all it takes to check them out. Good riddance!

One day I took the two little piggy’s out on a walk.

It came a time when the boyish girl had in some extent to transform into a woman. So, my dear mom decide to help me make that transitions by reading a couple of books that revealed what a woman is and the way it behavior should be.

In that stack there was this astonishing, strange but really good book called: A woman of thirty by Honore de Balzac. Through the many things that I found and strive to learn from it, was the fact that we women should keep all of our personalities (meaning child, boyish/girlish, mature woman, teacher, doctor, etc.) intact and use them wisely when needed.

Not forgetting this, made me one day at not such a really young age, to buy and happily wear a pair of crazy, extremely childish shoes. The piglets! Pink pigs with white and soft pink background.  Amazing!

The moment they came to my door, they were delivered by a nice lady Marushka, I felt madly in love. :))

Fashion advice of the day!

Don’t transform yourself in just one person, one typology. You are complex and it’s really good to show that, to be that confident that it will be no problem to present yourself to the world in any way you prefer. Be the boyish/girlish that wear animals as bags or shoes, be the teacher that always has a book in her purse, be the stylish that can wear with big grace the stiletto heel, or anything that you are, but remember you should really be that, fakes are not accepted!

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

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!

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:

My kind of embroidery

We are one of that family were the boy is much quiet then the girl :)) that being said I’m the naughty child of my sweet family and I was the one always in trouble and being lectured by my parents.
This behavior affected my way of being and my decisions when it comes to food, play, cloths and other stuff, so I usually  were cool or funky cloths but the elegant and very sweet outfit are not really for me.
Till this blue cardigan with, wait a second and another one, embroidery. Yes, it’s true, it has a very girly and feminine and cute pattern on the neck called embroidery, but what can I say, I like it!
 
Fashion advice of the day!
You, all of you, not feminine, not girly type of girls, you can were does sweet blouses, cardigans, sweaters and skirts as long as….this is the tricky part, you combine them with an opposite type of cloths. Like me today, this cute cardigan is combined with a pair of short jeans, boots and a big, masculine belt.
