Numai premiere in postarea de azi!

– in primul rand, pentru un look mai “cuconet”, am “optat” (parca asta e cuvantul pe care il folosesc unii mondeni cand se exprima pretios :)) pentru parul indreptat. Glumesc: nu e deloc una din frezele mele preferate, iar multa lume nici nu m-a vazut vreodata asa (si n-au pierdut nimic!), dar fusesem cu o seara inainte la coafor sa ma vopsesc si sa ma tund si mi-a fost lene sa ma mai spal pe cap ca sa revin la freza mea obisnuita care necesita zero efort.

– in acelasi spirit (cuconet, adica), m-am dat cu ruj! Stiu, nu pare ceva grozav, dar pentru mine, care folosesc doar balsam de buze de prin anul 2000, este ceva remarcabil, mai ales ca e unul destul de inchis la culoare. De fapt experimentez in vederea unei postari cu o rochie stil anii ’20 (pe care inca nu o am :)) care va necesita un asemenea ruj inchis la culoare si mat.

– In sfarsit am intrat si eu in randul lumii si am niste accesorii vintage: ce blogger e ala care n-are asa ceva?!? Mi-era si jena de mine :) (in curand voi posta si “macarons” – sau “macaronetze”, cum imi place mie sa le zic, ca sa le fac de rusine – si cafea cu desene :)). Glumesc din nou, nu asta e motivul: pasiunea mea pentru stilul retro e de vina. Mi-am facut curaj si am fost pentru prima oara la un targ vintage (V for Vintage, la Dalles), de unde m-am ales cu o gramada de chestii dragute: cerceii si geanta de aici, plus o geanta de piele din anii ’30 si una din margele, din anii ’20 (“perla” expeditiei), o palarie cloche, la care se adauga achizitiile facute de mama (doua palarii si o pereche de cercei).
Desi am avut un moment de indoiala (OK, le zicem noi “vintage” ca sa sune bine, dar de fapt n-o fi fost inmormantat careva cu ele :)?), pana la urma ma declar cucerita de fenomenul vintage pentru motivul ca poti sa gasesti lucruri unice si de foarte buna calitate la niste preturi mai mult decat rezonabile (de exemplu geanta din anii ‘20 pe care mi-am cumparat-o a fost doar cu putin mai scumpa decat una de inspiratie anii ’20 de la New Look), asa ca o sa mai merg cu siguranta si la alte targuri de genul asta.

Apropo de palton: Etic mi se pare ca fac niste paltoane foarte frumoase (pacat ca nu apar toate produsele pe site!) si mi-am cumparat si anul acesta unul camel, stil anii ’60, cu o fundita foarte draguta la spate, care este redus la (aprox.) 200 ron, de la 280 (variante de culoare: camel, rosu si gri spicat). Asta asa, in caz ca vreti sa (va) faceti un cadou frumos de Craciun pe ultima suta de metri :):

EN: Lots of “firsts” in today’s post:

– first and foremost the straight hair: definiteley not my favourite look (lots of people who know me have never seen me like this – and I don’t think they missed out!), but I’d been to the hair salon the previous evening to have my hair dyed and cut and I was too lazy to wash it in order to return to my usual zero effort hairstyle.

– I’m wearing lipstick! I know, this may not sound like a big deal to you, but I haven’t worn lipstick since the start of the new millennium, so it’s a pretty major thing for me, especially since it’s quite an obvious shade too.
I’m actually experimenting in view of a future post featuring a 20’s-inspired dress (that I don’t have yet :)), which will require a dark and matte lipstick.

– I’ve finally succumbed to the vintage trend and can now sport some vintage accessories: it’s such a blogger cliché, I was ashamed of myself for not doing it (posts involving macarons and coffee designs are next on my list :)).
I’m only joking, of course: the real reason why I wanted some vintage stuff is my love of all things retro. I’ve finally braced up my courage and went for the first time to a vintage fair, where I bought lots of gorgeous things: the bag and earrings featured in this post, plus a leather bag from the 30’s and a beaded one from the 20’s (the “pearl” of my expedition), a cloche hat, plus what my mom bought for herself – two 50’s style hats and another pair of earrings (all of which I will definiteley borrow).

Even though there was a moment of doubt in my mind (OK, “ vintage” sounds nice and all, but what if some old lady was buried with them :)?), in the end, at least for me, the pros definitely outweigh the cons, the biggest one being that you get unique, good quality pieces for very reasonable prices (for instance the genuinely 20’s bag that I bought cost almost as much as a 20’s-inspired bag from New Look).
