10 Closet essentials – Every petite woman should own


EN: If we were to start a discussion about fashion, trends and personal style we could have an endless debate. There are tons of reasons to agree or disagree on what to wear, both objective (like size, shape) and subjective (like how we see ourselves in the mirror and what we see in magazines and/or online), but there are several fashion items that every petite woman should own. They are evergreens of the wardrobe 😉

The list below is just a starting point, you can choose your preferred brands:

RO: Orice discutie despre fashion, trenduri si stil personal poate duce la dezbateri fara sfarsit. Sunt multe motive pentru care poti adapta sau respinge un trend, atat obiective (forma si marimea siluetei), cat si subiective (perceptia asupra reflexiei din oglinda sau ceea ce vezi in reviste, in online), dar sunt cateva piese vestimentare pe care fiecare femeie mignona ar trebui sa le aiba in dulap. Sunt evergreenuri ale garderobei!

Lista de mai jos este un punct de pornire, fiecare dinre voi poate opta pentru marcile preferate:

  1. Nude stiletto suede high heels – here
  2. Black pencil dress – here
  3. Leather jacket – here
  4. Casual T-shirt – white & black
  5. Flared jeans – here
  6. Navy slim fit office suit – jacket and pants
  7. White shirt – here
  8. Big handbag – here
  9. Backpack – here
  10. White Converse – here

Kisses and hugs, my petites!

Green vibes: Blazer dress or what to wear at a wedding


RO: Cand privesti lucrurile din alt unghi, chiar si in fashion, gasesti modalitati noi de a purta hainele sau ajungi chiar sa le oferi un alt rost decat cel trecut pe eticheta. Iata un exemplu, Zara prezinta aceasta haina verde ca o vesta, pentru mine este o rochie sacou.

EN: When you think outside the box, even in fashion, you can discover new ways to wear certain items or you can give different meaning to whats written on a label. Here is one example, Zara is presenting this green thing as a vest, but for me it’s a blazer dress.

RO: In plin sezon de nunti, am cumparat rochia cu gandul la evenimentul la care urma sa particip la finalul lunii. Intodeauna caut o tinuta pe care o pot folosi si la alte ocazii. In plus, din experienta mea o rochie pentru o nunta e bine sa nu fie foarte fixa, asa te bucuri de meniu, fara sa te gandesti la burtica 😛

EN: As wedding seasons is here, I bought the dress thinking of the event that I was going to participate at the end of the month. I always look for something that I can wear to other occasions. Moreover, from my experience a wedding dress should not be tight, so you can enjoy the food without thinking of your belly.

RO: Pentru ca rochita are un verde minunat si puternic, accesoriile le-am ales de-o culoare neutra, am ales un roz pal. Am gasit sandalele la Mercari, apoi am cautat o geanta mica, in aceeasi cromatica, pe FashionDays.com.

EN: Because of the strong green of the blazer dress, accessories needed to be neutral, I thought of light pink. Luckily, I found these simple, pretty sandals in Mercari, so I looked for a a small handbag with similar color. on FashionDays.ro.

Swimsuit Season: Monochrome summer in black and green


RO: Haideti la mare! Vara a sosit, asa ca un post scurt despre costume de baie mi se pare potrivit. O sa incep cu o intrebare, cate costume de baie aveti in garderoba?

Eu am 8, pentru o persoana care nu stie sa inoate si NU are stare sa leneveasca la soare pentru a se bronza, sunt multe…. Ce credeti?

EN: Let’s go to the sea side! Summer is here, so a short blog post about swimsuits is appropriate. I will start with a question, how many swimsuits do you have?

I have 8, for a person that does not know how to swim and does NOT have patience to linger in the sun just to get tan, are too much. What do you think?

RO: O sa va scriu despre cele mai noi, le-am comandat online si ar ajuta o parere despre ele. Cred ca multe dintre voi sunteti familiare cu Zaful.com (sigur v-au aparut reclame pe vreun canal de social media).

Dupa ce am citit cateva reviewuri online, am decis sa comand 3 seturi (doua negre, am vrut bikinul de la un set si topul de la celalalt):

EN: I will write about the newest of them, because I bought them online and I am sure that a review will help. I think many of you are familiar with Zaful.com (for sure you must have seen an ad on a social media channel).

After searching reviews online, I decided to order 3 sets (two 2 black because I wanted the bikini from one model and the top from the another):

  1. One Shoulder Bikini Set – Black
  2. Padded Scrunch Butt Bikini Set – Black
  3. Ribbed Scrunch Butt Wrap Bikini Set – Camouflage Green

RO: PRO: calitatea materialelor; modul de productie; pretul – aprox. 20 dolari/set; descrierea produselor de pe website este corecta; marimile se potrivesc (S este ideal pentru o tinuta petite) – a sa primit exact produsele pe care le vedeti in poze.

CONTRA: doar unul singur, timpul de livrare este destul de lung, cand am comandat eu au fost expediate de peste ocean; acum obsev ca au o versiune a websiteului si pentru Europa (dar, cred in continuare ca cel mai probabil comanda va ajunge dupa vara).

O sa postez poze cu celelalte 2 costume pe Instagram, pe parcursul verii 🙂

EN: PROS: quality of the materials; manufacturing; price – aprox. 20 dollars/set; the description of the products is accurate; sizes are ok (S is ideal for a petite figure) – you will get exactly what you see in the pictures.

CONS: just one, delivery time is long, unfortunately when I ordered the delivery was from across the ocean; now I see they have a version of the website for Europe (but I still think that you will probably get your order after summer).

I will post on Instagram pictures with the other two bathing suits, during the summer.

Kisses darlings and be careful how much you lay in the Sun! 😀

Weekend vibes: Red maxi dress, denim jacket and no high heels


RO: Zilele de weekend pentru mine inseamna blugi si incaltaminte fara toc, dar in fiecare an, la inceput de vara imi propun sa port mai multe fuste/rochii si mai putin pantaloni. Asa ca, iata o combinatie pe care o intalniti cu siguranta destul de des prin oras, potrivita si pentru o configuratie mignona, maxi dress cu tenesi.

 ENG: In weekends my go-to clothes are jeans and shoes without high-heels, but each year, when summer is around the corner I set myself on wearing more often skirts/dresses and less pants. That’s why I chose a mix that you will for sure see pretty often on the streets, suitable for a petite silhouette, maxi dress with sneakers.

RO: Totusi, o rochie maxi vine cu anumite provocari pentru o petita, lungimea… solutia pe care am ales-o in acset caz a fost cureaua; nu-mi doresc sa calc pe rochie si sa cad, sa ma impiedic in ea sau chiar sa o rup. Ridici rochia, o fixezi la lungimea potrivita si o prinzi la mijloc cu o curea, simplu. Modelul m-a ajutat, dar solutia se poate aplica aproape la toate modelele de rochii maxi.

 ENG: However, a maxi dress comes with some challenges for a petite, the length … for me the solution was to use a belt, I was not looking forward to step on the dress and falling or getting struck in it. You just set the dress at your desired length and set it around your waist with a belt. The model of the dress helped me, but this solution can be applied to the vast majority of designs.

RO: In final, as vrea sa subliniez inca o data cat de fain va puteti distra combinand culori, sa nu aveti retineri. Eu am ponit de la rosu si albastru (rochia si geaca), adaugand apoi si mai multe culori prin tenesi si geanta. Am fost atenta ca albastrul si rosu sa se regaseasca in restul elementelor din tinuta, iar cureaua neagra este sustinuta cromatic de negrul din tenesi.

BONUS: Inlocuieste tenesii cu o pereche de saboti sau platforme si ai un outfit de seara 🙂

 ENG: And last but not least, I would like to emphasize once again don’t be afraid of colors, play with them. I started from red and blue (dress and jacket), then add more colors with the sneakers and the bag. I was just careful to have blue and red in the other items of the outfit. The black from the belt is chromatically supported by the black in the sneakers.

BONUS: Replace the sneakers with a pair of clogs or platforms and you have an evening outfit 🙂
