Because I’m super busy these days that I practically  shouldn’t  be  sleeping the  next  few days, I’ll try to be short today and let the photos speak for themselves. Today’s style story is about how great can be to mix something old, something new, something borrowed and of course something blue. 🙂


[RO] Pentru ca sunt super ocupata  zilele astea de  practic ar trebui sa nu  mai dorm, voi incerca sa nu ma lungesc azi cu “vorba” si sa las pozele sa vorbeasca in locul meu. Ideea din spatele acestui look a fost sa va arat cat de fain poate fi sa te joci cu piese noi si vechi, cu haine imprumutate si special pentru acest articol, cu ceva albastru.

A few weeks ago I discovered in the back of my closet this short denim skirt that I think I own since high school. Beside the fact that I’m proud  that it still fits, I decided that is no better time  than  right now to wear it again. Soon I  will probably  have to  give it  to my daughter. 🙂

Because I’m a grown up woman that really didn’t want to look like a teenage girl (I’m not even sure that it  came out as it should), I  wanted to give the whole look  a more mature and fancy vibe. So, I  added a masculine shirt, and  by masculine  I mean my  husband’s now former shirt 🙂 and these leather biker boots that I love deeply and wear most of the time, bought on sales from Stradivarius a few years ago.


[RO] Cu cateva saptamani in urma am descoperit aceasta fusta scurta din denim, pe care cred ca o am de prin liceu.  Tin sa mentionez ca asta inseamna de mai mult de 15 ani, in special pentru acelea dintre voi care ar putea crede ca am terminat liceul de curand. 🙂 Pe langa faptul ca m-am simtit mandra ca am putut sa o inchid, m-am gandit eu ca nu mi-ar strica sa o  port din nou si sa  incerc un look nou si interesant, dar  care sa nu ma faca sa arat ca o adolescenta.  Asa ca am ales sa o combin cu o camasa masculina de om matur,   si prin masculina ma refer fix la  camasa sotului meu, care de  la imprumutata  a ajuns a mea personala (o imprumutam prea  des si  nu mai apuca sa o poarte 🙂 ). Am adaugat ghetele mele biker preferete, care apropo, sunt din piele naturala si le-am achizitionat la reduceri acum cativa ani de la Stradivarius. #decisepoate

To complete the look I added the “Love Blossoms in Winter” leather necklace from my new Blossom Collection and a cute detail on the shirt’s collar.  If you’re  wondering what it is, there are actually 2 simple stone  earrings, used like small  brooches. I’m sure you have some you’re not crazy about anymore, so you can use them as embellishments for classic shirts.

This  whole  look  is  about  mixing  clothes  from  different decades  and  styles, combining  masculine  and  feminine  pieces, adding  surprising  details  and statement accessories, in  a fashion game that is meant to be fun and define a style  that is definitely yours.

Today’s style story is not even the best fashion story, but is about not caring too much and just enjoying  playing with your style. Fashion  has had many rules  over the years, but the most interesting looks were achieved when rules were broken or just redefined.

So, brake the rules…

[RO] Pentru  un  look complet cum  imi place mie, am  adaugat colierul  din  piele “Love Blossoms in Winter” din  noua colectie Blossom si  un  mic detaliu  chic  pe  gulerul camasii. Daca va intrebati ce  este, ei  bine sunt  2 cercei simpli cu  piatra pe care i-am folosit ca  niste  mici brose.  Sunt  convinsa ca  si voi  aveti  cativa  rataciti prin cutia de bijuterii pe care ii puteti folosi sa accesorizati delicat camasile clasice.

Toata povestea  asta este  despre cum  sa combini  haine din decade  diferite, stiluri diferite, masculin si feminin, detalii surprinzatoare si accesorii statement, totul intr-un soi de joaca de-a moda al carui rol este sa defineasca un stil propriu. Look-ul asta de azi nu e nici macar cel mai bun, dar demostreaza ca moda e distractiva si ca e ok sa te joci si tu.  Industria modei a   impus de-a lungul anilor  multe reguli de stil, dar cele mai interesante look-uri au fost cele ce au incalcat regulile si le-au redefinit.

Deci, incalcati regulile…:)
