  1. Pick of the Day: Dorothy Perkins Peter Pan Collar Dress with… Surprise at the Back


    April 5, 2013 by raluca

    Rochie Dorothy Perkins cu guler Peter Pan si… Surpriza la Spate:

    rochie cu guler peter pan verde turcoaz imprimeu floralRochie cu guler Peter Pan, nasturi in fata si imprimeu floral, verde/ turcoaz – 28£ (aprox. 148 ron) la Dorothy Perkins, aici.
    Cutie brand Green/ Turquoise Peter Pan Collar Dress with button front and ditsy floral print – 28£ at Dorothy Perkins, here.

    Din fata arata asa: o rochie cuminte si dragalasa, cu nasturi si guler Peter Pan, genul pe care englezii il numesc cred “tea dress” – “rochie de luat ceaiul” (suna un pic “bourgeois”, nu :)?).
    EN: So this is what the dress looks like from the front: a cute, “good girl” Peter Pan collar dress with button front.

    In spate insa ne asteapta o surpriza:
    EN: The back however presents a surprise factor:

    rochie cu guler peter pan cu spatele decupat desprins verde turcoaz

    Ta-daaa!!!! Cumintica devine un pic “obraznica” (suna a soft porn :)) cu spatele asta decupat (sau desprins – nu stiu exact cum sa-l numesc). Nu va asteptati, nu?

    EN: Ta-daaa! The nice dress becomes a little naughty (that sounds a bit like soft porn :)) with that see-through, cut-out back (or whatever it’s called). You didn’t see that coming, did you?

    Acum depinde de fiecare daca este o supriza placuta sau neplacuta. Mie imi place (cred!), dar trebuie sa recunosc ca mi se pare o combinatie mai neobisnuita, la care nu ma asteptam nici chiar eu, care, la cat de mult imi plac rochiile cu spatele decupat/ gol, deja imi cam dau seama vazanu-le din fata care ar putea avea o supriza la spate.

    Partea buna la rochie este ca genul asta de decupaj/ despicatura merge purtat/a linistit cu sutien (plus ca are elastic la spate, deci e sigur comoda); partea mai putin buna este ca desi partea din fata ar recomanda-o ca pe o rochie perfecta pentru serviciu, “surpriza” s-ar putea sa fie cam… suprinzatoare pentru unele locuri de munca sau la scoala.

    EN: It’s up to you of course if this is a good surprise or a “darn it, they spoiled a perfectly good dress with that” kind of surprise. I for one kinda like it, but I must admit that even I find this combination of very nice & cutesy + naughty a little unexpected, even though, given how much I like cut-out/ open back dresses, I can usually pretty much guess which ones might lend themselves to a “surprise” back just by looking at the front.

    The good thing about the dress is that with this kind of cut-out you can safely wear a bra (plus the elastic waist makes it comfortable); the not so good part is that, while the front of the dress looks perfectly work-appropriate, the “surprise” back might be a little too… surprising for certain workplaces (or school).

    Exista si in varianta bleumarin (unde se vede mai clar ca spatele este transparent, in timp ce partea din fata pare sa aiba o dublura), insa eu o prefer clar pe cea verde (smarald?)/ turcoaz:

    EN: This dress is also available in navy blue (and this version makes it more obvious that the back is see-through/ transparent, while the front appears to be lined), but I definitely prefer the (emerald) green/ turquoise one:

    rochie cu guler peter pan spate transparent decupat bleumarin inflorataRochie cu guler Peter Pan, cu spatele decupat si transparent – bleumarin – 28£ (aprox. 148 ron) la Dorothy Perkins, aici.
    Navy Blue Peter Pan Collar Dress with see-through cut-out back, button front and ditsy floral print – 28£ at Dorothy Perkins, here.

  2. Pick of the Day: Dog-Shaped Clutch

    Comments Off on Pick of the Day: Dog-Shaped Clutch

    dog clutch, plic geanta in forma de caine, dog shaped clutch bag, haine accesorii cu animale, animal clutch bag, animal shaped clutch bag, cute animals on clothes accessories, dog bagDog-shaped Clutch in tan, beige/ nude or green – 20€ at Pepa Loves, here;
    Plic in forma de caine, maro, bej sau verde – 20€ (aprox. 90 ron) la Pepa Loves, aici.

    Am descoperit recent magazinul online spaniol Pepa Loves unde, desi nu exista prea multe articole, am gasit mai multe chestii dragute. E un semn bun, zic eu, cand nu trebuie sa frunzaresti virtual zeci de pagini ca sa dai de ceva interesant. (Stiu ca probabil oamenii normali renunta sa se uite pe un site daca nu le place ceva de la primele articole. Ei bine, eu NU sunt unul din acesti oameni. Eu merg intotdeauna pana la capat, pentru ca am taria de caracter necesara. Asta, plus faptul ca nu vreau sa fiu vesnic bantuita de gandul ca poate pe pagina 49 sau 99 era rochia visurilor mele – am multe visuri – si am ratat-o din lene).

    Desi, bineinteles, o rochie a fost cea care m-a manat aici, plicul in forma de caine mi s-a parut cel mai de impact. Puteti alege intre doua nuante neutre, mature :), care merg cu orice (dar nu ceva cu pisici!) – maro si nude – sau un verde in trend.

    Ce ziceti: ati purta asa ceva sau e mai degraba pentru nepotica de 5 ani? Eu, una, sunt bizar fascinata de gentile in forma de animalute, asa ca as purta bucuroasa cainele asta.

    EN: I’ve recently come across Spanish online store Pepa Loves and, although they don’t have many products, I did manage to find some very cute stuff. It’s usually a good sign, I think, when you don’t have to browse through dozens of pages in order to come across something bookmark/ whishlist-worthy. (Well, I know most of you probably just give up looking if you haven’t found anything interesting on the first page(s). Not me, though. I always look at EVERYTHING. No matter how long it takes. No mater how tired I may be. Yep, that’s me and my moral strength. That and the fact that I don’t want to be forever haunted by the thought that “What if on page 49 or 99 there was the dress of my dreams – I have many dreams – and I’ve missed it out of sheer laziness?” No siree, ain’t gonna happen!)

    Although it was of course a dress that initially lured me to this website, I thought the dog-shaped clutch would make a more interesting post. You can choose between two grown-up :), go-with-everything (except a cat!) colourways – tan and nude – and a trendy green. (Didn’t you hear? Green dogs are all the rage!)

    So what do you think: would you wear it or is it something you’d buy for your 5-year-old niece? I, for one, find myself strangely attracted to animal shaped bags/ clutches, so I’d happily wear this dog.

    Iata si cum arata la purtator:
    EN: This is what it looks like when worn:

    plic geanta in forma de caine, dog shaped clutch bag, haine accesorii cu animale, animal clutch bag, animal shaped clutch bag, cute animals on clothes accessories, dog clutch

    Forma, ca forma, dar mie privirea sfioasa/ vinovata/ banuitoare a cainelui mi se pare irezistibila…
    EN: The shape is cute enough, but it’s that shy/ guilty/ suspicious look on the mutt’s face that I find totally irresistible…

    Si, daca tot am atins acest subiect: ati vazut geanta cu vulpita de la Accessorize?

    EN: Since we’re on the subject of bags that are shaped like animals, have you seen the Fox Bag available at Accessorize

    fox bag, plic geanta in forma de vulpe, animal clutch bag, animal shaped clutch bag, cute animals on clothes accessories, fox shaped clutch bag, haine accesorii cu animale

    owl bag, plic geanta in forma de bufnita, animal clutch bag, animal shaped clutch bag, cute animals on clothes accessories, owl shaped clutch bag, haine accesorii cu animale

    Mi se pare chiar mai draguta decat cea cu bufnita de anul trecut (care inca se mai gaseste), iar la primul Groupon cu 50% reducere la Accessorize nu cred c-o s-o ratez – ca s-o fac cadou nepotelei mele de 5 ani, bineinteles :).

    EN: I like it even more than the Owl one from last year and I have a good mind to buy it – in order to give it to my 5-year-old niece, of course :).

    accessorize brown tan cross body owl bag to buy onlineBrown/ tan across body owl bag – £25 here;
    Geanta bufnita – £25 (aprox. 135 ron) la Accessorize, aici.

    Iar anul acesta au scos si cei de la Meli Melo un model de geanta in forma de bufnita, un pic mai ieftina si mai mare decat cea de la Accessorize:

    EN: Another owl-shaped bag from Meli Melo (this one is a little bigger):

    plic geanta in forma de bufnita, owl shaped clutch bag

    plic geanta in forma de bufnita, owl shaped clutch bag

    Geanta in forma de bufnita Meli Melo – 100 ron aici si aici;
    Meli Melo Owl Shaped Bag – 22,20€ here and here.

    Inca un model dragut de geanta de la Accessorize:

    EN: Another cute bag from Accessorize:

    accessorize russian doll bagRussian doll cross body bag – £12,50 here;
    Geanta in forma de papusa Matrioska – £12,50 (aprox. 67 ron) aici.

    Eu insa m-am indragostit de geanta asta in forma de scoica:

    EN: I’ve totally fallen in love with this seashell-shaped bag:

    20s inspired light pale pink seashell bag to buy onlinePale pink and cream shell bag – £35 here;
    Geanta roz deschis/ crem in forma de scoica – £35 (aprox. 189 ron) aici.

    Motivul scoica e specific anilor ’20, care e una din perioadele din moda care ma fascineaza cel mai mult, dar adevarul-adevarat e ca ce ma atrage cel mai mult la geanta asta e ca m-as simti un pic ca o “zirena” purtand-o :). (“Micuta Sirena” – de fapt “Ariel, fecioara marii” – pentru ca asa era tradus din germana :) – a fost primul film Disney pe care l-am avut, imediat dupa Revolutie, asa ca intelegeti de ce m-a marcat…)

    EN: The shell motif is typical of 20’s fashion, which I’m fascinated with, but, truth be told, what really draws me to this lovely, lovely bag is the fact that I’d feel a little bit like a (not so little) mermaid wearing it: and what girl (or soon to be middle-aged woman) doesn’t want that, I ask you :)?!?

    Happy Shopping!

  3. Pick of the Day: Motel Penny Black and White Stripe Dress

    March 13, 2013 by raluca

    rochie cu dungi albe si negre, rochie cu dungi verticale si orizontale, rochii cu dungi, trend monocrom, dress with vertical and horizontal stripes, monochrome stripe dress, monochrome trend, Motel Penny Babydoll Dress in Black and White StripeMotel Penny Babydoll Dress in Black and White Stripe – 36£ till March 18th (45£ normally) at Motel Rocks, here;

    Rochie Babydoll (cu talia sus) cu dungi albe si negre – 36£ (aprox. 183 ron) pana pe 18 martie (45£ in mod normal) la Motel Rocks, aici.

    Ma pregatesc psihologic de ceva vreme de un post cuprinzator (a se citi imens :)) cu trendul cu dungile/ combinatia alb-negru, insa pana imi fac curaj, iata una din primele rochii de genul asta care mi-au atras atentia: e pe stilul meu, adica scurta, larga si comoda, insa riscul de a arata ca un frigider in ea (cum mi s-a intamplat mie cu o rochie cu dungi aici) este evitat datorita faptului ca dungile din partea de jos sunt verticale, nu orizontale.

    Pana pe 18 martie la Motel aveti REDUCERE de 20% la ROCHII folosind codul LADIESDRESSES20 si tot 20% la categoria BESTSELLERS (prima chestie de la CLOTHING), folosind codul BESTMOTEL. Livrarea costa 8£.

    Rochia exista si la Asos, aici, unde o puteti vedea si in miscare si costa 45£ cu livrarea gratis (deci pana la urma la Motel iesiti mai ieftin cu 1£ daca va cumparati doar rochia asta :)).

    EN: I’ve been bracing myself for a while now for a comprehensive (aka huge) post about the monochrome (and) stripes trend, but until I get around to that, here’s one of the first stripe dresses that got my attention: it’s just my style – short, loose and comfy and the risk of looking like a fridge in it (which is what happened to me in this striped dress here) is avoided thanks to the fact that the stripes on the lower part of the dress are vertical instead of horizontal.

    Until March 18th at Motel you get 20% off Dresses with code LADIESDRESSES20 and 20% off Bestsellers (to be found under CLOTHING) with code BESTMOTEL – with Free UK Delivery. (Delivery to Europe EU is 8£ and to the rest of the world 10£. Shipping to the US is free).

    The Motel Penny dress is also available at Asos, here, where it’s 45£ and you can see it movement.

    March 6, 2013 by raluca

    geanta clutch plic floriPlic alb din piele cu imprimeu lalele, vopsit manual (32cm/ 20cm/4 cm) – marca Giuka – 250 ron la Moja, aici;
    White Hand-painted leather clutch (32cm/ 20cm/4 cm) – 55€ at Moja*, here.

    * Guys, I think this Romanian store delivers abroad, but it’s best to contact them first to get an estimate for the delivery price.

    O geanta plic cu lalele – accesoriul perfect pentru primavara! Pe langa ca mi se pare absolut superba, imi place si faptul ca e relativ practica, fiind destul de mare pentru ceva atat de “artistic”.

    As vedea-o purtata atat cu oricare din culorile de pe el (si nu neaparat nuante identice – alb, rosu, bordo, corai, verde), cat si cu o rochie sau o fusta in dungi (stiti voi, trendul principal al primaverii!) – si cred ca asta e varianta mea preferata – sau chiar cu ceva galben:

    EN: A clutch with tulips – what can be more appropriate for welcoming spring! Not only do I think it’s gorgeous, but it also seems fairly practical for such a whimsical creation, given that it’s pretty big.

    I’d wear it with any of the colours on it (not necessarily in the exact same shades – red, coral, burgundy, green, white), with stripes (you know, the trend of the moment) – and I think this is my favourite combination – or even with yellow:

    rochie cu dungi albe si negre, rochii dungi, rochii dungi orizontale, monochrome stripe dress, geanta clutch plic flori, pantofi rosii din piele intoarsa cu varf ascutitRochie in dungi (stanga) – Zara;
    Left: Zara Combination Striped Dress;

    Rochie cu dungi din bumbac (dreapta) – Moja – 219 ron aici;

    Pantofi nude Zara;

  5. Pick of the Day – French Connection Sun Gaze Silk Dresses


    February 28, 2013 by raluca

    french connection sale, French Connection Sun Gaze Silk Chiffon Maxi Dress, reduceri french connection, rochie french connection, rochie maxi lunga matase, rochie maxi lunga rosie, rochie rosie matase, rochii rosii, red silk dress, red dressesFrench Connection Sun Gaze Silk Chiffon Maxi Dress – 62,50£ (was 250£) here. (You can see it in movement at Asos, here).

    Rochie maxi rosie, din voal de matase – 62,50£ – aprox. 325 ron (redusa de la 250£) la French Connection, aici. (O puteti vedea in miscare la Asos, aici).

    Pentru ca e o zi frumoasa de primavara, cel putin in Bucuresti, ma simt inspirata sa va arat o rochie de matase lunga si vaporoasa, perfecta pentru la vara.

    In caz ca vi se pare prea fara forma, cred ca puteti s-o accesorizati cu incredere cu o curea, dar eu as purta-o exact asa cum e: fiind din matase fluida, lasa oricum sa se ghiceasca conturul corpului, dar nu si o cina mai consistenta, sa zicem :).

    Mai este disponibila doar in masura XS (dar avand in vedere croiala, cred ca merge chiar si pentru cineva care in mod normal poarta M – eu, de exemplu) si doar 5 “bucati” (parca vorbesc de caltabos :)), asa ca daca va place, nu stati prea mult pe ganduri.

    EN: It’s a beautiful spring day in Bucharest (hope I’m not rubbing it in for any of you!), so I feel inspired to show you a gorgeous silk maxi dress from French Connection, that will make a great summer piece.

    In case you find it too shapeless, I think you can add a belt, but I would wear it just as it is: the fluid silk allows a glimpse of the body’s contour, but is apt to disguise a potential copious dinner, let’s say :).

    Size XS is the only one still available (but considering the shape of the dress, i think it would easily fit even somebody who’s usually a size M – myself for instance) and there are only 5 dresses left, so, in case you like it, don’t wait too long!

    Exista si o varianta midi, disponibila tot doar pe marimea XS:
    EN: There’s also a midi version available (again size XS only):

    french connection sale, French Connection Sun Gaze Silk Chiffon Halter Dress, reduceri french connection, rochie french connection, Rochie midi larga din matase, rochie rosie matase, rochii rosii, red silk dress, red dressesFrench Connection Sun Gaze Silk Chiffon Halter Dress – 44£ (was 220£) here;
    Rochie midi larga din matase – 44£ (aprox. 228 ron) – redusa de la 220£ la French Connection, aici.
