Chilly October

IMG_1723

<Ro> Ei, da, a nins in Bucuresti si asta nu mai e noutate pentru nimeni. Facebook-ul abunda in fotografii cu prima zapada din Octombrie! Si asta cam da peste cap teoriile legate de incalzirea globala.

Lasand la o parte predictiile meteo si teoriile specialistilor si intrand in “micul”  univers fashion, m-am entuziasmat cand au scazut temperaturile pentru ca am avut din nou ocazia sa port din nou fularele oversized, pe care le ador! Nu am chiar aceleasi sentimente si pentru iarna, dar incerc sa pastrez focusul pe partea plina a paharului.

Asadar avem o tinuta bazata pe fularul oversized si vesta-palton de la Stradivarius, pe care o consider un hit al acestui sezon! O putem purta in atatea combinatii si cu manusi lungi in culori tari, de piele (pe care de abia astept sa le achizitionez, ramane doar sa ma decid asupra culorii, cred ca va fi portocaliu, fiind in trend toamna aceasta si prezent in toate magazinele, dar fiind si una din culorile preferate)

Pana data viitoare sper sa se mai indrepte vremea si sa ne mai permita sa ne bucuram, fie si putin, de temperaturi mai generoase!

<En> In Bucharest already felled down the first snowflakes and well, this was a good opportunity for me to wear the oversized foulard I simply love!  Guilty pleasure you may say, if you take into consideration the fact that I don’t like at all winter!

Also you will see in the pictures the vest coat from Stradivarius, that model it’s a hit for me this summer. You can wear it in so many combinations, with long colorful gloves.

Why we love high heels?

<Ro> Nu e niciun secret ca toate fetele sunt innebunite dupa pantofi, dar in special reusesc sa-si piarda mintile dupa tocuri. De ce? Ei bine, au fost formulate diverse teorii, dar cea mai frecventa este cea legata de statutul social.

Tocurile ne fac sa ne simtim importante, respectate, sexy, demne de un statut social ridicat. Pentru ca nu am putea cobori din tramvai pe tocuri, nu? Tocurile implica un status social ridicat, un job ce presupune un birou, indica apartenenta la o clasa sociala inalta.

Daca ne intoarcem in istorie, se pare ca prima femeie care a purtat tocuri a fost Catherine de Medici(1519-1589), fiind obligata de imprejurari in cadrul ceremoniei de casatorie, intrucat era scunda, prin urmare a improvizat tocurile. De atunci pantofii cu toc au cunoscut diverse forme si inaltimi pana la cele actuale. De asemenea, in sec XVI pantofii cu toc erau purtati de barbati aflati in pozitii de conducere, fiind indicatori al luxului si bunastarii. Purtand tocuri evidentiai clar ca nu este necesar sa te deplasezi prea mult, fapt ce indica ca esti privilegiat. Barbatii au renuntat insa la acest obicei, considerand tocurile o alegere irationala, deloc practica, pe cand femeile le-au imbratisat, facilitandu-le intrarea in lumea modei.

Asadar putem presupune ca pe masura ce creste inaltimea tocului creste si pozitia pe scara sociala, nu? Glumesc, desigur! Cel putin in opinia mea tocurile ce trec de o anumita inaltime sunt doar vulgare.

Voi v-ati gandit de ce purtati tocuri? Cum va fac pantofii cu toc sa va simtiti atunci cand ii purtati?

<En> We all, girls, love high heels! Why? Well, many researchers have tried to find out why but the most common theory is the one linked with the social status.

Wearing high heels make women feel confident, important, sexy, show that they have a high status or an important job that doesn’t requires field work.

The formal invention of high heels as fashion is typically attributed to the rather short-statured Catherine de Medici (1519-1589). At the age of 14, Catherine de Medici was engaged to the powerful Duke of Orleans, later the King of France. She was small (not quite five feet) relative to the Duke and hardly considered a beauty. She felt insecure in the arranged marriage knowing she would be the Queen of the French Court and in competition with the Duke’s favorite (and significantly taller) mistress, Diane de Poitiers. Looking for a way to dazzle the French nation and compensate for her perceived lack of aesthetic appeal, she donned heels two inches high that gave her a more towering physique and an alluring sway when she walked. Her heels were a wild success and soon high heels were associated with privilege.

Heels become a symbol of femininity for the same reason they were once loved by wealthy European men: they are painful, impractical and frivolous. Men no longer wear heels because social ideas of gender have changed – men are supposed to embody practicality while women are treated as being irrational.

Now they are present in every fashion show and worn by millions of women.

Have you think about why you are wearing high heels? How they make you feel?

RED Old Memories

IMG_1562

<Ro> Astazi sunt cu chef de depanat amintiri.:) Si focusul este pe ROSU, care imi trezeste multe amintiri, desi nu mai este culoarea mea preferata eh, de vreo 20 de ani. Cand eram copil aveam o adevarata obsesie pentru rosu. De la haine, jucarii, pana la prima masina a familiei, care a trebuit sa fie neaparata rosieee! :)

Din cand in cand imi mai aduc aminte de perioada mea rosie si mai investesc in cate o piesa care sa contina si aceasta culoare, eventual cate una pe sezon.

Rezultatul final a fost satisfacator pentru mine. Nu m-am putut abtine si am “potolit” rosul cu nuante de gri si negru, care este mai nou “culoarea” mea preferata. si pentru ca suntem in epoca citatelor, acesta mi se potriveste perfect: “I’ll stop wearing black when they’ll invent a darker color”.

Care sunt culorile voastre preferate? S-au schimbat ele in timp?

<En> As a child I had a real obsession with RED. From clothes, toys to the first family car that was of course red! :) Well, the things changed. I stopped wearing red from 20 years now, but from time to time I like to remember those days  and I buy a red item.

This time I have chosen to calm down that red with grey and black, since black is now my “happy color”. And since we live in the quote era, that’s the one that represents me today:I’ll stop wearing black when they’ll invent a darker color”.

What is your fav color? Has changed during the years?

From time to time let the inner demons win

IMG_1326

<Ro> Citeam zilele trecute urmatorul citat : “I stopped fighting my inner demons. We’re on the same side now.” Si am ras copios. De ce? Pentru ca de multe ori suntem de aceiasi parte a baricadei cu demonii interiori. Da, stiu, citatele motivationale de care abunda internetul ne spun ca trebuie sa fim zen, buni intotdeauna etc. Dar, cand situatia o cere, cu totii avem partea noastra de « demonism », care, daca ne iese cu succes, ne ofera o satisfactie…

Astazi sa zicem ca m-am imbracat fix cum a cerut demonul din mine. Dark, dar classy. Sa vedem ce a iesit!

<En> I was reading the other day this quote: “I stopped fighting my inner demons. We’re on the same side now.” And I laughed hard. Why? Well, because there are certain situations when the bad in us pops up and, if we play our cards right, well, you feel sooo good after that. I know that this comes as a knock in the head for all the motivational quotes we find on internet, that say that we always should be calm, good, but, let’s face it, all have our bad moments.

Today I’ll show you my inner demon outfit. Let’s see what came out!

Parka situation!

IMG_1142

<Ro> Toamna lucrurile devin mai complicate in ceea ce priveste outfitul. Pentru ca avem de adaugat item-uri, cum ar fi trench-ul, paltonul, geaca de piele etc.

Astazi va propun un item ce nu ar trebui sa va lipseasca din garderoba: Parka! Este foarte versatila, se potriveste de minune tinutelor relaxate, dar poate adauga o nota de originalitate si tinutelor elegante. Prima mea parka am cumparat-o acum 2 ani si de atunci am o mica colectie!

Astazi am ales sa o port la un outfit smart casual, dar e nelipsita si din tinutele mele de zi cu zi.

Si pentru ca sunt foarte incantata ca am ocazia sa-l imbrac si pe Zippo, nu am putut rata sansa de a-l introduce si pe el in articolul de astazi!

<En> In autumn it’s a little more complicated to create outfits because you must pay attention to outwear too. Even if it is a trench, biker jacket, leather jacket or coat. Today I want to tell you about parkas. I love them. And they can save the day even if you choose a casual or elegant outfit.

I have chosen to wear it with a smart casual outfit but it’s my daily help to casual/sports outfits too.

And because now I have the chance to dress up Zippo, I couldn’t miss the chance so I took some photos with him!

I’m a Millennial and I know it!

IMG_1121

<Ro> Da, da si voi sunteti Millenials!:) Desigur, daca aveti 20 si ceva de ani. Am tot auzit tot mai des teorii despre generatia Y sau Millennials. Si mi s-a parut o tema buna de abordat. De data asta nu din punctul de vedere al unui pshiholog trecut de a doua tinerete care isi formeaza teorii despre noi din spatele unui birou, pe baza unor statistici desigur, ci din perspectiva mea, a unui Millennials get beget.:)

Cum este conturata generatia Y? Ca o generatia care continua sa isi traiasca adolescenta si dupa ce aceasta a trecut, careia ii este frica sa-si asume angajamente (fie el sociale sau profesionale), lenesa, care amana sa-si intemeieze o familie, dependenta de internet (guilty as charged here), intr-un cuvant imatura. Este o generatia care pune accent pe distractie si experimente si mai putin pe angajamente serioase. Daca este sa ne raportam la generatiile trecute, da, suntem lenesi. Cu totii sau marea majoritate avem bunici care la 20 de ani erau casatoriti, cu copii, cu un loc de munca, fara sa stea sa se gandeasca prea mult la toate responsabilitatile ce decurg din asta.

Ei bine, in unele din caracteristicile Millenials-ilor eu ma regasesc. Cum ar fi frica de angajamente. Adica daca m-as vedea cu copii acum m-as panica. Grav! J) Pe de alta parte, lenea nu ma caracterizeaza. De fapt, pe partea de intemeiere a unei familii da, am issues. Dar in ceea ce priveste partea profesionala mi-am setat obiective foarte clare.

Pe de alta parte, sunt studii care demonstreaza ca procesul de maturizare este incheiat complet la 25 de ani. Prin urmare, mai avem sperante. Eu am trecut pragul, astept cu interes minunea, clicul.:))

Dar voi? Va regasiti in descriere sau nu?

Si pentru ca e scris negru pe alb ca imi traiesc adolescenta tarzie, m-am imbracat adecvat. Partea tare privind moda pentru Millenials este ca le este permis sa experimenteze si sa se distreze. Asa ca, have fun! :)

<En>  I often hear about Millennials or Y generation. Who they are? All the young people in their 20s. Like me.

They are described as late teenagers who don’t make commitments, who are lazy and are afraid to serious relations.

I have to say that yes, I’m afraid of commitments, of getting married or having children. Also I’m addicted to internet and all the social media channels. But I’m not lazy; I’ve set up clear objectives regarding my career so in that part I’m safe. However, it is an interesting phenomenon.

The fun part about this Millennial thing is that you can have fun regarding to fashion too. So, today I dressed up like a Millennial.:)

<Ro> Trebuie sa fac o marturisire! Ador ghetele cut-out inca de sezonul trecut!:) De curand mi-am comandat aceasta pereche de pe boohoo.com si de abia asteptam sa o port. Astazi am ales sa o port cu boyfriend jeans si biker jacket pentru un look rock chic, dar de abia astept sa le port si cu rochii si fuste.

Arata foarte bine si acum, cand putem lasa glezna la vedere, dar si atunci cand temperaturile vor scadea, cu sosete colorate.

Voi purtati ghete cut-out ? Si daca da, cu ce va place sa le purtati ?

<En> I’m in love with cut out boots! It’s not a new crush; I have it from last season. My new cut-out pair it is ordered from boohoo.com. I couldn’t wait to wear them! Today I have chosen to wear them with boyfriend jeans, but I’m anxious to mix them up with skirts and dresses.

This cut-out boots are appropriate for autumn, when you can wear them simple, to show your ankles, or during winter with colorful socks!

How do you feel about cut-out boots? Do you wear them?

The cape

IMG_1079

<Ro> Capa este in trend de ceva timp, mai precis de 3 ani. De atunci designerii s-au jucat cu dimensiunile, culorile si formele. Arata foarte bine, sunt un item de impact si cu siguranta nu trec neobservate.

De data aceasta eu am optat pentru capa de la Sheinside, va recomand sa vizitati site-ul, au preturi bune si puteti prinde ofere super atractive la Presale.

Puteti vedea un alt outfit ce include capa aici.

<En> While capes may be a little impractical during the coldest months, no one can deny the luxurious vibe they lend to any look. I like them because they add a stylish note and a eye-catching effect to our outfits!

This time I have chosen a Sheinside cape, bought on Presale at a very good price.

You can see another cape look here.

Embrace yourself

IMG_0922

<Ro> Astazi va propun sa vorbim despre acceptare. Am citit de curand un interviu in Harpers Bazaar, oferit de Loredana Groza. Si mi-a ramas gandul la raspunsul ei la intrebarea “Ce trasatura iti place cel mai mult la o femeie?” Ea a raspuns simplu: “Acceptarea. Femeile care au facut pace cu ele insele.” Si m-a pus pe ganduri. Vad zilnic femei care nu au facut pace cu ele. Vedem cu totii, desigur. Femei care se chinuie cu diete peste diete, femei nemultumite de felul in care arata desi multe ar da orice sa arate asa, femei nefericite.

Cred ca acceptarea vine o data cu varsta. (ironic !) Cu totii avem plusuri si minusuri, lucruri de care suntem multumiti si viceversa. O data cu trecerea anilor incercam sa le rezolvam si uneori reusim, alteori nu. Este important sa ne acceptam asa cum suntem. La ce putem lucra si imbunatati sa o facem, iar ceea ce nu putem schimba sa ….Acceptam! :)

Cu siguranta o femeie frumoasa si increzatoare este asa datorita acceptarii !

Prin urmare faceti pace cu voi! Ganditi-va la asta si puneti in topul listei To do! Va veti simti atat de bine!

Embrace yourself! Be you!

<En> Today I want to write you about peace… the peace with yourself, the acceptance. We all have good and bad sides, but it’s important to feel comfortable with both of them.

So my advice is Embrace yourself! Be proud of who you are! A woman who accepts herself it’s a beautiful and confident woman.

Feelin’ like a big fondant

IMG_0868

<Ro> Astazi ma simt ca o bomboana fondanta! :)) Nu sunt neaparat adepta outfiturilor colorate, dar din cand in cand, in special toamna, iarna, cand totul devine gri, port pasteluri. Ma face sa vad totul intr-o nuanta roz! :)

<En> I’m not necessarily in love with pastels, but sometimes, especially on “darker” seasons like fall and winter, I like to add a cheerful note to the urban background. Therefore today I feel like a giant fondant! :)
