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 🙂

Black pencil dress: sleeve tattoo at the office


RO: Dupa o perioada destul de lunga (mai mult de un an) am revenit pe blog cu un post nou, prin care vreau sa va arat o idee de a imbunatati o rochie simpla de birou. Este o solutie care se aplica pentru rochiile fara maneci si este perfecta pentru zilele din an mai putin calduroase: luati pe sub rochie o bluzita subtire, see-through (e important sa fie transparenta si pe corp, pentru a aduce o anumita delicatete tinutei). V-am zis ca este o idee simpla 😉

 ENG: After a fairly long period (more than a year) I’ve returned on the blog with a new post, where I want to show you an idea of how you can improve a simple office dress. It is a solution that applies to sleeveless dresses and is perfect for the not so warm days of the year: use a thin, see-through blouse under the dress (it’s important for the blouse to be tight on your body and transparent, it brings a certain delicacy to the outfit). I told you it was a simple idea 😉

RO: Am vazut aceasta solutie la una dintre colegele de la birou. Este un mod foarte smart prin care poti alcatui look-uri diferite pornind de la aceeasi piesa principala, rochia 😉

In cazul meu, am folosit o bluzita see-through cu elemente florale, aranjate in asa fel incat ai impresia ca am ambele brate tatuate. I love this!

 ENG: I saw this solution at one of my colleagues in the office. It’s a smart way in which you can achieve different looks from the same main piece, the dress 😉

In my case, I used a see-through blouse with floral elements arranged in such a manner that gives the impression of sleeves tattoos. I love this!

RO: Adaugand piese colorate in jurul unei rochii negre tip creion (sau croiul care va avantajeaza pe fiecare), poti construi o tinuta nu foarte riguroasa, dar potrivita pentru birou. Pornind de la aceasta idee, pe langa elementele clasice – rochia si pantofii negri -, am alaturat elemente colorate, care luate individual nu fac parte neaparat din categoria office – bluza see-through si geaca de piele verde.   

 ENG: By adding colored pieces around a black pencil dress (or any kind of dress that is suitable for you), you can build an office outfit that is not very rigorous. Starting from this desired outcome, besides the classic elements – black dress and shoes – I added colored items that are not necessarily part of the office category – see-through blouse and green leather jacket.

RO: Mai departe, va puteti juca si cu alegerea dresurilor. La randul lor pot schimba lookul, pot ajuta o silueta petita, cum am eu. De aceea am optat pentru un dres cu dunga neagra pe spatele picioarelor 😛

ENG: Furthermore, you can also play with the tights. They can change the look and help a petite figure, like mine. That’s why I choose a pair with back lines on the back of the leg, to make them look longer… shhhh 😛

Bucharest by night: geaca bomber hibrid


A trecut ceva timp de cand am postat ultima oara, dar asta nu inseamna ca am renuntat. Acest “sport” al bloggingului de fashion este o provocare, chiar daca ai timp, nu ai intotdeauna resursele tehnice necesare. For all the bloggers out there, don’t you find it difficult when it comes to phography and you don’t have a boyfriend who is into this? 😛

Bun, trecand la partea de fashion, vreau sa va intreb daca ati remarcat printre tendintele sezonul toamna – iarna 2016 gecile bomber si gecile din fâș (ribbed jacket in eng)? Eu va prezint un hibrid intre geaca bomber, un must have al sezonului de toamna si chiar iarna, si o pufoiaca.

migdelia_ribbed-nylon-jacket-with-collar_2

Deloc voluminoasa, scurta si foarte usor de purtat cu orice, chiar in ciuda aspectului sport. Pentru o silueta petite acest model de geaca este perfect! Mai mult, o gasiti in foarte multe culori, uni sau cu imprimeuri, dupa preferinte. Eu am ales un model simplu, de un albastru mineral.

In magazine a inceput sezonul reducerilor, deci o s-o puteti cumpara la un pret foarte bun 😉 In plus, mie mi se pare un „evergreen” al unei garderobe.

Ati observat? In acest post, am schimbat linia vestimentara, mergand pe o tinuta sportiva, „tourist like”, cat si abordarea fotografica. Sunt cateva cadre nocturne reusite, care surprind Bucurestiul fara zapada, dar linistit. Do you like them?

Restul tinutei – alcatuita din haine pe care le am in gaderoba de ceva timp si in care ma simt foarte confortabil 😉
