  1. Shopping de rochii anii ’20 – 20s Dresses

    0

    December 9, 2013 by raluca

    Am observat ca in ultima vreme multa lume ajunge pe blogul meu cautand rochii in stilul anilor ’20. Eu am fost un pic obsedata cu genul asta rochii anul trecut si acum doi ani, acum parca mi-a mai trecut (probabil pentru ca am reusit sa adun deja 4 rochii inspirate de aceasta perioada) si am inclinat mai mult spre stilul anilor ’50, insa tot nu pot sa intalnesc o rochie “flapper” fara sa o pun la pastrare intr-un wishlist sau folder, just in case.

    Partea proasta e ca ma tem ca cele care cauta o astfel de rochie si ajung aici vor fi dezamagite: am impresia (poate gresita) ca romancele evita sa cumpere online din strainatate (eu una sunt, dimpotriva, un pic ingrijorata cand comand din Romania!), iar in magazinele de la noi nu am gasit decat cateva rochii care doar cu indulgenta pot fi catalogate ca fiind in stilul anilor ’20-’30, asa ca majoritatea celor din articol sunt din magazine online din Anglia (de unde, de altfel, le am si eu pe ale mele).

    In al doilea rand, genul asta de rochii se vand in afara cu viteza sunetului, chiar daca de cele mai multe ori sunt destul de scumpe, asa ca nu ma injurati daca multe din cele din postare nu vor mai fi pe stoc cand cititi asta (mai ales ca de obicei reapar dupa o anumita perioada).

    Si acestea fiind spuse, sa purcedem la shopping:

    EN: 20’s style dresses seem to be selling like hot cakes, despite the fact that they aren’t exactly cheap, so don’t hate me if many of the styles I’ve featured in this post will be sold out by the time you get to read it; the good news is they are usually restocked, so DO NOT abandon all hope, ye who enter, that dreamy frock might still be yours: just make sure you check the relevant online stores as often as possible!

    1.

    rochie de seara anii 20 cu franjuri rosie si neagra onlineRochie anii ’20/ flapper cu franjuri, rosie sau neagra, marca Coast – £52 – aprox. 280 ron (redusa de la £125) aici sau aici si aici; un model similar de la Dorothy Perkins – aici.

    Coast “Cha Cha” flapper fringe dress in red and black - it’s £52 (reduced from £125) and you can buy it here/ here/ here. A similar style (in black) from Dorothy Perkins – here.

    Eu am o rochie cu franjuri de la French Connection, care inca se mai gaseste (aici):
    EN: I have a colourful fringe flapper dress from French Connection, which is still in stock (here):

    rochie anii 20 flapper cu franjuri french connectionO port aici/ I’m wearing it here.

    (P.S. Sandalele nu prea au treaba cu rochia – port mai jos unele retro, mult mai potrivite -, dar eram in vacanta si nu am obiceiul sa car dupa mine incaltaminte cu care nu pot sa merg. 30 de rochii in schimb, da, car cu cea mai mare placere :)).

    Cealalta rochie a mea cu franjuri, de la Traffic People, este asta.
    EN: I have another fringe dress from Traffic People.

    rochie de seara anii 20 cu franjuri paiete si spatele decupat gol neagra cu argintiuRochie de seara anii ’20 cu franjuri, paiete si spatele decupat, tot de la Coast – £75 £120 (momentan redusa de la £150) (aprox. 405 ron) aici;

    Coast “Mischa” 20’s fringe dress with cut out back and sequin embellishment – £75 £120 (currently reduced from £150) here.

    Imi place mult de tot rochia asta pentru ca are cele doua elemente care ma farmeca in mod special la o rochie flapper: franjuri si spatele decupat; la pret numai de ar mai lucra si ei un pic…

    EN: This is the perfect flapper dress as far as I’m concerned because it combines the two elements I love the most in this style of frock: the fringe and the cut-out back. The only thing I’m not so enthusiastic about is the price…

    frock and frill zelda sequin 20s style flapper evening dress with cut out back open back in beige nude gatsby dressFrock and Frill “Zelda” sequin flapper evening dress with cut out back in beige/ nude – £135 at Rock My Vintage, here; (the third photo is actually the maxi version of this dress, which is currently sold out on the Asos website, but you can still admire it in motion here);

    Rochie de seara anii ’20 cu spatele decupat si paiete, marca Frock and Frill “Zelda” – £135 (aprox. 730 ron) aici. (A treia poza e de fapt versiunea lunga a rochiei, momentan epuizata la Asos, pe care insa o puteti admira in miscare aici).

    Frock and Frill sunt una din cele mai bune surse de rochii anii ’20 la ora actuala, iar modelul asta cred ca e cel mai popular si inteleg perfect de ce: spatele decupat mi se pare absolut superb si imi inspira exact glamour-ul petrecerilor din “Marele Gatsby”.

    (Din ce am descoperit eu, modelele lor le gasiti pe site-ul propriu, la Asos, pe site-ul Rock My Vintage si la Amazon UK).

    EN: I think right now Frock and Frill is one the best sources of 20’s inspired dresses and the lovely “Zelda” above is one of their most popular styles: I for one can totally understand its appeal – that beautifully done cut-out back simply oozes Gatsby glamour!

    (As far as I know, you can buy their designs on their website, from Asos, Rock My Vintage and Amazon UK).

    Eu mi-am comandat in vara modelul asta de la Asos (dar pe gri, pentru ca era singura culoare existenta atunci) pentru o nunta la care urma sa ma duc, dar, desi rochia in sine era superba, nu mi-a placut cum imi venea (semanam un pic cu un frigider, desi nu am soldurile absolut deloc late) si am dat-o inapoi. N-as sti sa spun exact care a fost problema – poate mi-ar fi trebuit un numar mai mic (eu imi luasem UK 10), poate talia nu e chiar atat de jos pe cat ar trebui, poate e prea groasa din cauza paietelor… -, dar cu aceasta ocazie m-am demoralizat un pic in privinta rochiilor cu genul asta de croiala, desi pe manechin mi se pare ca arata foarte bine. (Deci aici trebuie sa fie problema: nu arat ca manechinul, ce surpriza :)!).

    EN: The black one is listed as being cotton, but I’m pretty sure that’s a mistake and it’s also made of polyester. (By the way, considering how much these dresses cost, I think they should have been silk chiffon, not polyester…).

    La cea neagra scrie ca e din bumbac, dar sunt sigura ca e o greseala si e tot din poliester. (Apropo de asta, e un pic dezamagitoare chestia asta cu poliesterul: la cat costa, cred ca si-ar fi putut permite sa le faca din voal de matase…).

  2. Sailor Dresses – Rochii Stil Marinar

    0

    July 31, 2013 by raluca

    Pe langa pasiunea pentru rochiile retro de inspiratie anii ’50 (din care gasiti o multime in aceasta postare), anul asta m-a lovit si obsesia cu rochiile stil marinar, care amintesc si ele, de fapt, de aceeasi perioada din moda.

    Nu se gasesc chiar pe toate drumurile si am cautat cu indarjire o vreme pana sa gasesc (aproape) ce imi doream, dar iata ca am acum o lista, din pacate nu atat de mare pe cat mi-as fi dorit, cu cateva rochii dragute in acest stil.

    (P.S. Dupa cum veti vedea, ma refer la rochiile inspirate din costumatia unui marinar – sa zicem! -, nu la cele cu dungi marinaresti, care imi plac si ele foarte mult si care apar in numar foarte mare aici).

    EN: Alongside my love of 50’s-inspired dresses (lots of them in this post), this year I seem to have developed an obsession with sailor-style dresses, which are in fact, for the most part, reminiscent of this very same period’s fashion.

    As soon as my obsession manifested itself, however, I realized that this kind of dress isn’t that easy to find (unless you’re looking for a costume) and it took me a while to find what I wanted, but thanks to my relentless search across the internet, I have managed to put together a decent-sized (though not nearly as big as I’d have wanted) list of pretty dresses in this style. Hope you enjoy it!

    (P.S. If you’re looking for nautical-style dresses, check out this post).

    1.

    rochie stil marinar scurta mini clos bleumarin cu alb anii 50Rochie stil marinar scurta, cu ancora brodata, bleumarin cu alb, marca Hell Bunny – 39,99£ aici/ 44,99£ (aprox. 236 ron) aici; (disponibila si pe rosu – 39,99£/ aprox. 210 ron aici – si negruaici);

    Hell Bunny “Motley” 50′s Mini Sailor Dress in navy with embroidered anchor/ skull39,99£ here/ 44,99£ here; (also available in red – 39,99£ here – and black here).

    Incep cu rochia pe care mi-am cumparat-o eu si care imi place la nebunie: materialul e de buna calitate, un bumbac elastic gros, e foarte ampla (ai ce calca la ea, dar merita efortul!) si, ceva ce nu ma plictisesc niciodata sa spun, e supercomoda. (Insist intotdeauna asupra aspectului astuia pentru ca din punctul meu de vedere, degeaba e o rochie – sau orice alta piesa vestimentara – frumoasa daca te face sa te simti ca naiba).
    Eu am fost putin trista doar ca pe mine nu e la fel de scurta ca pe manechin (am 1,70 m), dar banuiesc ca pentru majoritatea lumii asta e o veste buna. (Vine putin desupra genunchiului dar pare mai lunga din cauza amplitudinii).

    EN: I’m starting off with the dress I’ve bought. I absolutely adore it: it has an amazing full skirt that makes you wanna twirl (and takes some time to iron – but it’s totally worth every bit of sweat!), the fabric is great quality – a thick stretch cotton – and, something I never get tired of saying, it’s extremely comfortable (because what use is a dress, no matter how beautiful, if you can’t wait to get home and take it off – and not in a “good” way ;), right?).
    The only “bad” thing I can say about this truly gorgeous dress is that I was just a little bit disappointed that it’s not as short on me as on the model (I’m 1,70 m and it falls above the knee but seems longer due to its being so full), but I’m sure this is good news to most people. Highly recommended if you like the style!

    Ma puteti vedea purtand rochia aici.

    2.

    Iat-o si in varianta midi:
    EN: The “Motley” dress is also available in midi length:

    Hell Bunny Motley 50s style midi swing Sailor Dress navyHell Bunny “Motley” 50s Style Midi Swing Sailor Dress in navy – 44,99£ – 49,99£ here/ here (also available in red here – and black – here);

    Rochie retro cu guler, clos/ ampla, bleumarin cu alb sau negru cu alb – 44,99£ (aprox. 236 ron) aici.

    5.

    Hell Bunny Sakura Mini Sailor Dress with collar in black and red“Sakura” Mini Sailor Dress with embroidered anchor and skull - from Hell Bunny. It’s 44,99£ and is available in black (here), red (here) and also navy blue (here – but only in size 14/ L);

    Rochie stil marinar scurta, clos – 44,99£ (aprox. 230 ron) – disponibila pe negru (aici), pe rosu (aici) si pe albastru/ bleumarin (aici, dar doar masura L).

    Eu pe asta am vrut-o initial – gulerul mi se pare de mare angajament la o rochie marinareasca! -, doar ca pana sa pot justifica cumparatura in fata constiintei mele si asa subrede, n-am mai gasit masura S bleumarin si m-am consolat cu cea pe care o stiti deja. Pana la urma cred ca e tot raul spre bine (zise vulpea cu ochii la struguri :)), pentru ca varianta fara maneci e mai potrivita de vara, mai ales ca materialul destul de gros o face suportabila cam la limita pe caldura mare.

    EN: This is the one I had initially planned to buy (I really wanted my sailor dress to have a collar!), but by the time I was able to justify the purchase (to my already extremely lax conscience) it had sold out in Navy – size S, so I had to console myself with the one I’ve already told you about. In the end I think things have turned out for the better (said the fox to the grapes :)) because the halter neck style is more appropriate for our hot summers than this short sleeves style, especially considering the fabric is pretty thick as it is.

    6.

    Boutique By Jaeger Drop Waist Sailor Dress with collarBoutique by Jaeger Drop Waist Sailor Dress with collar - 99£ at Asos, here, and 49£ at House of Fraser, here.
    Rochie cu talia joasa si guler marinaresc, marca Boutique by Jaeger – 99£ (aprox. 500 ron) la Asos, aici, si 49£ (aprox. 260 ron) aici.

    7.

    Savannah Clara Denim Dress with drop waist button back and Sailor CollarSavannah brand “Clara” Denim Sailor Dress with drop waist, collar and buttons at the back – 85€ here;

    Rochie cu talia jos, guler marinaresc si nasturi la spate, din denim, marca Savannah – 85€ (aprox. 380 ron) aici.

    Atat rochia asta cat si cea de mai inainte as zice ca sunt, datorita taliei joase, pentru un “mariner” mai din anii ’20 sau chiar din perioada D-lui Goe, pe la 1900, carevasazica, monser :)!

    EN: I think the drop waist gives both this dress and the one before more of a 20’s vibe than a 50’s one, so I totally need me a sailor dress dress in this style too! (Did I mention I also adore 20’s fashion?)

    8.

    Hell Bunny Navy 50's fit and flare midi Siren Sailor DressRochie retro/ anii ’50 clos, midi (disponibila si pe negru) – 40,49£ (aprox. 210 ron) aici si 44,99£ (aprox. 236 ron) aici;

    Vintage style sailor pencil dress with collar - 31,99£ here - in black and white and here - in black and red.

    10.

    Stiu ca postarea ar trebui sa fie despre rochii, dar e prea dragut puloverul asta cu guler marinaresc ca sa nu vi-l arat:

    EN: I know this post is supposed to be about dresses, but I couldn’t resist showing you this cute sailor cardigan:

    Cardigan/ Pulover cu guler marinaresc – 29,99£ (aprox. 160 ron) aici – pe negru si aici – pe rosu.

    Dupa atatea rochite dragute si domnisoresti, simt ca trebuie ceva care sa ne scuture un pic din amorteala. Ce ziceti de un cantecel pirateresc :)? Yo Ho Ho and a Bottle of Rum, zic! Are cineva chef de o Cuba Libre acum :)?

    EN: I feel after all these cute and lady-like dresses we need to shake things up a bit, so how about… Yo Ho Ho and a Bottle of Rum :)? A Cuba Libre, anyone?


  3. Silk Flamingos and other Summery Wonders

    0

    January 16, 2013 by raluca

    silk1mixTraffic People Seashell & Bird dipped hem silk skirt in green, 45£ at Asos, here;

    Fusta asimetrica (scurta in fata, lunga in spate) din matase verde, cu imprimeu pasari flamingo si scoici, marca Traffic People – 45£ (aprox. 260 ron) la Asos, aici.

    Stiu ca afara e frig de crapa pietrele (si probabil, din nou, bordurile :)) iar materialele diafane nu sunt chiar primele care ne vin in minte, dar vorba “vara sanie si iarna caruta” se aplica perfect si in cazul construirii garderobei de vara. Eu una “muncesc” ca o furnicuta tot anul sa adun rochite & co astfel incat vara, cand vine momentul marii vacante la mare, sa am tot ce-mi trebuie pe langa casa omului (c-asa mi-s eu, gospodina :)).

    In ceea ce priveste marca Traffic People (care are niste lucruri superbe de matase, in special rochii), acum este o perioada foarte buna sa dam atacul: pe site-ul lor totul este redus la 50% sau 70%, iar la Asos tocmai au aparut mai multe piese din colectiile mai vechi, reduse si ele semnificativ.

    Apropo de lucruri superbe, nu vorbesc eu intotdeauna prea frumos, dar imprimeul cu pasari flamingo si scoici al fustei asimetrice de mai sus ma face sa devin lirica: mi se pare absolut fermecator si perfect adaptat voalului de matase fluid; parca ma si vad zburdand delicat pe malul marii… si apoi impiedicandu-ma, eventual de propriul picior, si cazand gramada :).

    EN: I know it’s pretty cold out there (at least where some of us live) and flowy fabrics are not exactly the first thing that comes to mind, but I tend to take a “wise” (in a shopaholic kind of way, that is) approach to “building” my summer wardrobe: like the busy bee that I am, I “work” hard all year long at putting it together, so that when that glorious time called “summer holidays at the seaside” finally comes (= the happiest time of the year for me) I’m all ready for it and my collection of dresses is complete.

    Now for instance is a very good time to shop gorgeous Traffic People silk pieces: everything on their website is 50% or 70% off and at Asos several items from older collections have just made their lovely appearance.

    Speaking of gorgeous, I think the flamingos & seashells print of the high low skirt above is one of the most beautiful I’ve ever seen and in perfect harmony with the fluid silk chiffon fabric; I can just see myself prancing on a sunny beach… and than tripping over something – possibly my own foot – and falling like a sack of potatoes :).

    Tot cu acest imprimeu exista si o bluza stil tunica:
    EN: There’s also a tunic top in this print:

    silk2mixTraffic People Seashell & Bird silk Drape Tunic Top, 40£ at Asos, here;

    si mai multe modele de rochii:

    Traffic People Seashell & Bird silk Maxi Blessings Dress with V-neckline and deep V cut back and empire waist, 64£ here (also available in green; see it in movement + different print here);

    Rochii de matase scurte, 49£ (aprox. 285 ron) fiecare, le gasiti aici si aici (iar aici si aici vedeti modelele in miscare, dar cu alte imprimeuri);
    Rochie maxi de matase cu talie inalta/ empire si decolteu in V; costa 64£ (aprox. 370 ron) aici (disponibila si pe verde; modelul in miscare + alt imprimeu aici).

    *Nuanta reala de verde cred ca este cea din imaginele de la Asos (primele poze, cu fusta si bluza).
    *I think the real shade of green is the one on the Asos website (see the first pics, of the skirt and the blouse).

    Imprimeul cu pasari flamingo nu este nici pe departe singurul lucru frumos de la Traffic People; iata si alte imprimeuri si modele de rochii care mi-au atras atentia, toate din voal de matase:
    EN: The flamingos & seashells print is by no means the only wonderful thing at Traffic People; here are some other lovely prints and dresses, all of them in silk chiffon:

    1.

    Rochie din voal de matase turcoaz/ verde/ albastru cu imprimeu floral – 40£ (aprox. 230 ron) la Asos, aici.

    2.

    Rochie Traffic People din voal de matase violet cu imprimeu balansoar calut :), 49£ (aprox. 285 ron) aici (o puteti vedea in miscare aici).

    O rochie care merge purtata atat in sezonul rece, cu ciorapi, cat si vara, dat fiind ca este din voal de matase si are captuseala din bumbac.
    A fost pe lista mea de cadouri de Craciun, dar din pacate nu s-a ieftinit la timp, asa ca eu una nu cred ca voi avea parte de imprimeul cu caluti prea curand :(.

    EN: A charming print and a dress for all seasons: you can wear it both during the colder months, with tights, and, of course, it’s perfect for summer as well with its light chiffon fabric and cotton underlay.

    Dupa cum puteti vedea, pe asta o am si eu – marimea M – (a aparut intr-una din postarlie cu Santorini) si e una din rochiile mele preferate in momentul de fata. (Spre deosebire de manechinul Trafic People eu am ales totusi sa fiu previzibila si plictisitoare si s-o accesorizez cu o pereche de sandale nude Ash).

    EN: As you can see, I have this dress – in size M – (you may have seen it in the post about the dresses that I wore in Santorini) and it’s one of my favourites at the moment. (Unlike the model, though, I did play it safe and wore some shoes with it, namely my nude/ tan Ash Roxy wedge sandals).

    traffic people strapless mini silk dress in floral printTraffic People Prairie Jessica Rabbit silk chiffon strapless dress with floral print, 29£ here and 35£ at Asos, here;
    Rochie fara bretele din voal de matase cu imprimeu floral – 29£ (aprox. 170 ron) la Traffic People, aici, si 35£ (aprox. 182 ron) la Asos, aici.

    Acelasi imprimeu floral, dar alt model de rochie, care, pe un om (adica pe mine :)), arata dupa cum se vede. Varianta mea in nuante de albastru in degrade o am de vreo 2 ani si, la fel ca si rochia dinainte, imi place foarte mult pentru ca e supercomoda (are elastic la spate) si nu se sifoneaza in valiza.

    EN: The same floral print but on a different dress which, when worn (by yours, truly), looks like in the photo above. I’ve had my shades of blue version of the dress for about 2 years and I love it because it’s super comfortable (due to the elastic back) and handles travelling in a suitcase like a trooper (= it doesn’t crease).

    Inca 3 modele cu imprimeul acesta (numit Prerie):

    Rochie cu un umar gol din matase cu imprimeu floral – 45£ (aprox. 260 ron) la Asos, aici.

    Am o mare slabiciune pentru rochiile cu un umar gol, care mi se par sexy intr-un mod subtil. Hmmm, oare e exagerat sa ai doua rochii cu acelasi imprimeu :)?
    EN: I have a big soft spot for one shoulder dresses, which I find sexy in an understated way. Hmmm, do you think it’s too much to have 2 dresses in the same print :)?

    8.

    silk12mix2Traffic People Prairie Bless Dress with deep V neckline, empire waist, V-cut back, cap sleeves and woven belt – 47£ here, on the Traffic People website, 45£ at Asos, here, and 27£ at USC, here;

    Rochie cu decolteu in V in fata si la spate, talie inalta/ empire si cordon impletit – 47£ (aprox. 270 ron) la Traffic People, aici, 45£ (aprox. 234 ron) at Asos, aici, si 27£ (aprox. 156 ron) la USC, aici.

    Imi place foarte mult partea de sus a rochiei asteia, care, in combinatie cu imprimeul floral diafan, ma duce cu gandul la o zana a padurii (or something :)). Asta e de fapt unul din lucrurile mele preferate la Traffic People: majoritatea hainelor lor au ceva de poveste sau de vis; si, imbracata asa, chiar daca, sa zicem, esti inghesuita in metrou langa cineva cu deficiente de igiena corporala (“hygienically challenged” :)), parca tot te simti un pic speciala :).

    EN: This dress, with its ethereal floral print, flowy silk chiffon fabric and V cut neckline & back, makes me think of a forest fairy. This dream-like or fairytale-like quality, which many Traffic People clothes share, is in fact one of my favourite things about the brand: when you’re wearing something by them, even if you’re, let’s say, in a crowded subway next to a hygienically challenged person, you still feel kinda special :).

  4. French Connection Tassel Block Dress and two more Flapper Dresses

    french connection tassel dress bFrench Connection deco/ 20s style Tassel Block Dress, 48,50£ here;
    Rochie stil deco/ anii ’20 cu franjuri – 48,50£ (aprox. 280 ron) la French Connection, aici.

    french connection tassel dress mix

    Daca sunteti pasionate ca si mine de stilul anilor ’20, cred ca veti fi de acord ca rochia asta cu franjuri de la French Connection este un exemplu reusit pentru moda respectiva.
    Ceea ce-mi place cel mai mult la ea este culoarea (mie mi se pare rosie, ei spun ca e roz), pentru ca din ceea ce am vazut, majoritatea rochiilor deco care se gasesc sunt negre, gri sau nude, iar eu prefer culorile mai vii.

    EN: If you are a fellow fan of the flapper/ 20’s style trend, I think you may be just as excited as I am about this tassels dress from French Connection.
    My favourite thing about it is the colour (it looks red to me, but they call it pink), because as far as I’ve noticed most 20’s/ flapper style dresses out there are black, grey or nude and I much prefer more vibrant colours.

    Daca ar fi sa-i gasesc un defect, ar fi acela ca nu are si spatele gol, pentru ca in viziunea mea modelul perfect de rochie anii ’20 ar fi cam asa (dar intr-o cu totul si cu totul alta culoare, pentru ca asta mi se pare oribila si total dezavantajoasa pentru orice tip de ten):

    EN: If I were to be really picky (which I am :)) and find a flaw with this dress, it’s the fact that it’s not backless. My vision of a perfect flapper dress is something like this (but in a completely different colour, because I hate this sickly shade of yellow which flatters no skin tone in my opinion):

    asos beaded flapper dress mixAsos Salon Beaded Flapper Dress with cut-out back – you can see it here, but it’s been out of stock for ages;
    Rochie stil anii ’20 (flapper) cu spatele decupat si margele aplicate – o puteti vedea mai bine aici, dar nu mai e de mult in stoc.

    Revenind la rochia French Connection – inca nu v-am spus partea cea mai buna (pentru mine :)): este in drum spre dulapul meu! [Aici puteti vedea cum arata pe mine.] O remarcasem pe site-ul French Connection inca de la inceputul sezonului, cand costa… 200£.
    Au venit insa reducerile si rochia a ajuns la pretul de 100£, apoi la cel actual, in sfarsit acceptabil, de 48,5£, si decizia de achizitie a fost luata rapid, in urma unui consult telefonic cu mama (care mi-a si cumparat-o, de altfel – norocul meu e ca ma cheama si Ioana si, desi nimeni nu-mi spune asa, este un motiv sa primesc cadouri chiar la inceputul reducerilor de iarna :)).

    EN: Now back to the French Connection dress – I still haven’t told you the best part (for me, that is :)): it’s on its way to my closet, yey! (I’m wearing it here).
    I’d noticed it on the FC website at the beginning of the season, but it was 200£ then – much too much in my opinion for a high street brand dress that is made of viscose. The sale came however and the dress was reduced first to 100£ and then to the current do-able 48,5£. I made the purchase decision on the spot, following a phone consultation with my mom (who also bought it for me as a present for my upcoming name day – it’s actually only a middle name nobody uses, but hey, as long as it gives my loved ones a reason to buy me presents right at the beginning of the January sale…).

    O veste buna (pentru toata lumea de data asta) este ca French Connection este singurul magazin online (cel putin pana acum) unde ai surpriza placuta de a plati mai putin decat te asteptai: desi la pretul rochiei se adauga si 8£ livrare, apare in momentul finalizarii comenzii o reducere (cred ca scad TVA-ul), astfel incat pana la urma a costat cu tot cu livrare tot 48,5£. Dragut, nu? Imi comand atat de rar de la French Connection din cauza preturilor destul de mari incat uit de la o data la alta de acest mic amanunt imbucurator, asa ca de fiecare data sunt foarte placut surprinsa!

    Iata mai jos si ceea ce cred ca a fost sursa de inspiratie pentru rochia French Connection. E “un pic” mai scumpa, 1116€ (redusa de la 3190€), caci e Lanvin, insa mie tot cea “ieftina” imi place mai mult:

    EN: You can see below what I think may have been the inspiration for this French Connection dress. It’s “a tad” more expensive, 1116€ (reduced from 3190€) because it’s Lanvin, but I still like the “cheap” version better:

    Rochie Lanvin stil anii ’20 cu franjuri (si captuseala de matase) de la The Outnet (o gasiti aici).

    Daca tot suntem la subiectul rochii flapper/ anii ’20, iata inca alte doua modele pe care le puteti gasi acum la pret (foarte) redus:
    EN: Since we’re on the subject of flapper dresses, here are two others that are currently on sale:

    warehouse flapper dressWarehouse backless 20’s deco style Hot Fix Tie Back Dress with stud and jewel embellishment and dropped waist – 45€ here;
    Rochie stil deco anii ’20 cu spatele gol, talie joasa si tinte aplicate – 45€ (aprox. 200 ron) la Warehouse, aici.

    Pe asta mi-am comandat-o mai intai de la Asos acum ceva vreme, apoi, cand varianta neagra a fost redusa pe site-ul Warehouse, mi-am comandat-o si de acolo (din pacate rochia neagra nu mai este deocamdata in stoc). O preferam din start pe cea neagra, dar Asos nu a avut-o niciodata si ideea era ca o voi returna pe cea gri; din fericire insa cred ca s-a pierdut pe drum, asa ca le voi cere banii inapoi pe ea (se mai intampla, dar rar).

    Rochia neagra, in schimb, a sosit cu bine (saracuta si-a petrecut Caciunul intr-un depozit DHL din Bruxelles si Revelionul, intr-unul din Bucuresti, dar gata, acum ii e bine si cald la mine in dulap :)). Numai cuvinte de lauda despre ea: nu numai ca imi place la nebunie si este foarte frumos lucrata, dar este si super comoda, datorita taliei elastice, preferata mea. Va trebui insa s-o scurtez (nu este neaparat prea lunga – imi ajunge deasupra genunchilor -, dar cred ca imi vin mai bine rochiile mai scurte) si din cauza aplicatiilor de la terminatie nu va fi o operatiune foare usoara, dar sper ca vom trece cu bine si peste acest hop :).

    EN: I ordered this one during an Asos Savvy Sunday and then, when the black version was available on the Warehouse website at a friendly sale price, I ordered it from there as well (unfortunately the black dress is currently out of stock). I’d always preferred the black version, but Asos have never had it and the plan was to return the grey one from Asos; however I think it got lost on the way, because it should have arrived a long time ago, so now I can ask them for a refund.

    The black dress, on the other hand, did arrive safe and sound (the poor little thing spent Christmas in a DHL warehouse in Brussels and NYE in one in Buharest) and I totally love it: it’s very well made and extremely comforable due to the elastic waist and loose top part. I intend to have it shortened though (not because it’s necessarily too long – I’m 1,70m and size 10 falls a little above the knee –, but because I think my legs look better in shorter lenghts) and it’s not going to be an easy thing to do because of the studs around the hem, but I hope it’ll turn out alright.

    Rochie stil anii ’20 cu spatele gol, paiete si franjuri – 30£ (aprox. 174 ron) la River Island, aici.

    Si asta imi place (spatele gol, deh!) si mi-as fi cumparat-o cu siguranta daca nu intervenea cea de la French Connection, insa mi se pare mai greu sa gasesti ciorapii potriviti pentru ea (sigur, cel mai bine merge purtata fara ciorapi, dar tind sa asociez rochiile din poliester cu sezonul rece).

    EN: I like this one too (the open back gets me every time!) and I definitely would have bought it had it not been for the French Connection dress; I do have a little doubt however regarding the colour, which I think may make it a little tricky to find the right kind of tights (the best option, of course, would be to wear it with bare legs, but I tend to associate polyester dresses with the cold season and prefer silk and cotton for summer).
