    tinute elegante tinuta eleganta de ocazie de vara 2015 cu rochii scurte rochie scurta clos turcoaz cu imprimeu floral cu pantofi stiletto bej nude din piele intoarsa si cu poseta geanta bej crem din piele cu lant onlineCercei turcoaz din argint cu elemente Swarovski – 30 lei aici.

    Inel cu steluta neagra (tot argint + Swarovski) – 70 lei aici.

    Stiu ca imprimeul rochiei asteia e unul floral obisnuit, dar mie, de cand am vazut-o, mi-a inspirat ceva gen “fundul marii”; cu alte cuvinte, o rochie perfecta de luat in vacanta la mare; cu si mai alte cuvinte, inca un model Closet care striga sa se alature suratelor ei de la mine din dulap :).

    EN: I know this dress has a plain ol’ floral print, but because of its gorgeous aqua colour, the first (and only) thing that comes to my mind whenever I look at it is a tropical sea; in other words, the perfect dress for a seaside holiday and, in my case, yet one more style from Closet which simply HAS TO BE MINE OR ELSE LIFE WILL LOSE ALL MEANING.

    Ce am folosit in colaj + variante /// EN: Items in the collage & more options:

    1. ROCHIA – the DRESS

    a.

    modele de rochie rochii de vara 2015 scurte scurta clos turcoaz cu imprimeu floral flori inflorate sau cu buline colorate cu buzunare elegante eleganta de ocazie sau de zi din bumbac elastic onlineRochii de vara scurte, clos, turcoaz, cu imprimeu floral sau cu buline colorate, din bumbac elastic: 1. 270 lei aici/ aici; 2. 260 lei aici/ aici; 3. 180 lei aici/ aici (disponibila si pe albaici/ aici).

    Pe cea cu buline mi-am cumparat-o si e tare draguta!

    b.

    Iata si niste rochii de matase care chiar au imprimeu acvatic (plus una care e de culoarea marii tropicale, asa ca am considerat ca isi merita locul in gasca):

    EN: Here are some silk dresses which actually have an aquatic/ “bottom of the sea” print, plus a jade green one, which I thought deserved a spot here due to its wonderful, tropical sea-like colour:

    printed silk voile chiffon shift dress dresses mini short in jade aqua green turquoise blue bright pink bottom of the sea ocean aquatic print in relaxed fit 2015(Printed) silk (voile/ chiffon) shift dresses, in turquoise/ blue/ aqua/ jade green/ bright pink: 1. £159 here (La Fee Maraboutee – I love the name of this brand!); 2. £160 here/ here/ here (French Connection); 3. £69 here (Phase Eight).

    Gruparea asta deja nu mai are nimic de a face cu tema acvatica, dar banuiesc ca nu se supara nimeni sa vada niste rochii asa dragute:

    EN: This bunch has nothing to do with the sea theme, but I’m sure you won’t hold it against me if I show you some pretty dresses just because:

    1. matlasta – aici/ aici, disponibila si pe negruaici, maro coniac – aici si multe alte culori + in varianta mai micaaici si aici;

    2. aici, disponibila si pe negru – aici – si alb cu negru – aici.

    Tot scriu de gentile Yvy de ceva vreme si in cele din urma mi-am luat si eu una, tot matlasata, dar mare (aici/ aici) – arata bine, insa am fost un pic in dubii daca sa o pastrez sau nu avand in vedere ca mi s-a parut foarte deschisa la culoare (eu as numi-o CREM, in niciun caz bej, cum e trecuta pe site).

    3. PANTOFII

    a.

    pantofi stiletto bej nude negri si turcoaz din piele intoarsa cu fundita cu toc inalt si subtire toc cui si varf ascutit onlinePantofi stiletto negri, turcoaz si bej/ nude (disponibili si pe rosu), din piele intoarsa, cu fundita – 349 lei aici.

    Imi place la nebunie modelul asta (fundita e totally yummy!), dar, spre norocul portofelului meu, sunt mult prea impiedicata ca sa merit sa port pantofi din piele intoarsa, pentru ca altfel mi-ar fi fost greu sa aleg o singura culoare!

    Cum rochia e din bumbac, deci nu extrem de eleganta, merge foarte bine si cu incaltaminte mai casual – sandale cu toc gros, cu talpa ortopedica (cum o voi purta eu – pentru ca – supriza maxima! – mi-am cumparat-o) sau chiar fara toc:

    b.

    Nu sunt eu o mare fana a sandalelor fara toc (pentru mine cele mai comode sandale sunt unele care au o mica talpa ortopedica), dar astea mi se par foarte frumoase si deosebite.

    Pe nr. 3 mi le-am cumparat eu (convinsa de faptul ca sunt nude perfect pe pielea mea bronzata); le-am purtat o singura data pana acum si par destul de comode, sper sa ne intelegem bine si pe viitor! (Sunt, de altfel, primele sandale cu talpa de lemn cu care pot merge fara nicio problema – toate pe care le mai probasem imi dadeau senzatia ca o sa cad in bot, probabil din cauza lipsei de flexibilitate a talpii; nu stiu care e misterul in cazul astora, poate faptul ca au si cauciuc pe talpa).

    0

    April 4, 2014 by raluca

    Part 2 of this post is here.

    Bineinteles ca mai am multe rochii frumoase (zic eu) de primavara/ vara in desaga, e doar sezonul lor de glorie! Si eu stau si ma uit la ele cu jind pana imi platesc ratele grosolane la Card Avantaj :(…

    Ca cea din dreapta am si eu, de anul trecut, dar rosie si o iubesc! (I-am scos insa partea de tul, care era atasata de o captuseala din poliester).

    EN: I have the one on the right in red, from last year and I love it. I did however remove the tulle netting (which was attached to an – unnecessary in my opinion – polyester lining).

    4.

    7.

    midi and short silk chiffon dresses in turquoise emerald green peacock print in black floral print with deep v neck and back and in white anchor print cheapShort/ midi silk chiffon dresses: 1. black/ floral print with deep V neck and back (Traffic People) – £45 here; 2. green peacock print (Almost Famous) – £175 here/ here; 3. white/ anchor print (also Traffic People) – £42 here (also available in green and yellowhere).
    Rochii din voal de matase scurte/ midi: 1. neagra, cu imprimeu floral – £45 (aprox. 250 ron) aici; 2. verde, cu imprimeu paun –  £175 (aprox. 960 ron) aici/ aici; 3. alba, cu imprimeu ancore – £42 (aprox. 230 ron) aici (disponibila si pe galben si verdeaici).

    Am si eu o rochie din voal de matase Traffic People cu acelasi imprimeu ca al primeia si e una din preferatele mele, printre altele pentru ca nu se sifoneaza, asa ca o iau aproape intotdeauna cu mine in vacanta. (Nu sunt niste poze foarte bune, dar o port aici).

    Modelul exista si pe alb si roz pal (iar variantele pe verde si galben sunt aproape epuizate):

    EN: I have a silk chiffon dress from Traffic people in the same print as the first one and it’s one of my favourite dresses ever – one of the reasons being that it doesn’t crease, so it usually accompanies me on my holidays. (The photos aren’t great, but I’m wearing it in this old post).

    It’s also available in white and pale pink:

    white and pastel light pale pink short silk chiffon dress with floral print with elastic high empire waist and with deep v neck and v back flowy fit and flare traffic people cheapWhite and pale pink floral print short silk chiffon dress in flowy fit and flare shape, with high empire waist and deep V neckline and back – £45 here. (The green and yellow versions are almost out of stock).
    Rochie alba si roz pal scurta din voal de matase cu imprimeu floral si talie inalta, clos – £45 (aprox. 250 lei) aici.

    Quite the spring Goddess dress!

    Traffic People is actually my go-to destination for affordable/ cheap* silk dresses (*when on sale, otherwise not so much). The peacock print dress, meanwhile, is far from cheap but I find the print absolutely enchanting! It’s also available in blue and maxi length (just search for the name of the brand and you’ll see them).

    Rochia cu imprimeu paun exista si pe albastru si in versiune maxi:

    midi short jewel tone deep blue royal blue silk chiffon fit and flare dress in peacock print with beading flowy elegant occasion cocktailMidi/ short royal blue silk chiffon fit and flare dress with peacock print and beading – £175 here.
    Rochie albastra din voal de matase cu imprimeu paun, scurta, clos – £175 (aprox. 960 lei) aici.

    long silk chiffon maxi dress in emerald green and in royal blue jewel tones with peacock print flowy fit and flare with slim spaghetti strapsSilk chiffon maxi dress in gorgeous jewel tones of green and blue, with peacock print £195 here and here;
    Rochie maxi/ lunga din voal de matase verde si albastra cu imprimeu paun – £195 (aprox. 1070 lei) aici si aici.

    EN: For some reason the images for the green dress won’t show on the House of Fraser website – because who needs to see an almost £200 dress before buying it, right :)? Luckily I managed to track it down at Amazon UK, where some sizes are even a little cheaper.

    8.

    rochii de vara scurte evazate cu imprimeu floral tropical din bumbac satinat verde turcoaz corai stil retro anii 50Rochii de vara scurte, evazate, cu imprimeu floral tropical, stil retro – anii ’50, din bumbac elastic (si satinat – cea verde inchis), de la La Redoute – 259 ron aici;

    Tropical print fit and flare dresses from La Redoute – €45,50 here and here.

    9.

    pastel light pink coral pale pink fit and flare skater dress with cut out back in star print and hot pink jacquardPink cut-out back fit and flare dresses: in pale pink/ coral star print (Closet) – £48 here/ here/ here and in hot pink jacquard – £65 here;
    Rochii scurte cu spatele decupat: roz pal/ corai (Closet) – £48 (aprox. 264 ron) aici; roz – roz :) – £65 (aprox. 358 ron) aici.

    10.

    rochie cu spatele decupat scurta clos cu imprimeu colorat zaraRochie cu spatele decupat scurta, clos, cu imprimeu viu colorat – 169 ron la Zara, aici.
    Zara TRF colourful cut out back skater dress – €36 here.

    Am probat-o si e foarte draguta (decupajul e bine facut, nu atarna aiurea cum se mai intampla uneori, si sta umflata pentru ca e dintr-un bumbac elastic mai gros, rigid, putin creponat), insa pana la urma m-am decis (cu greu) sa nu mi-o cumpar pentru ca, la fel ca intotdeauna cand vine vorba de magazine foarte populare, mi se pare mare riscul s-o mai vad pe inca 20 de persoane (mai ales ca imprimeul este destul de memorabil). Ma rog, asta si ratele la Card Avantaj :).

    Update: mi-am cumparat-o :).

    EN: I’ve tried it on and I loved it (the cut-out doesn’t “sag”, as it sometimes happens, and it seems to maintain its poofy shape due to the fabric which is a stiff thick cotton) but in the end I (reluctantly) decided not to buy it due to a high risk of seeing 20 other people wear it (especially since the print is pretty memorable).

    Update: I’ve bought it :).

    11.

    a)

    retro 50s tropical print full circle fit and flare dress dresses tropical skater dress in green and cream beige floral and bird print with halter neck50s tropical fit and flare dresses: in green/ navy (Closet) – £52 here/ here and in beige with halter neck design (Jolie Moi) – £52,99 here/ here;
    Rochii anii ’50 clos, cu imprimeu floral tropical: verde/ bleumarin (Closet) – 230 ron la Roh Boutique, aici (sau la Dasha, aici); bej, cu imprimeu pasari si flori (marca Jolie Moi) – £52,99 (aprox. 290 ron) aici/ aici.

    Update: le-am comandat si pe astea :) si astept cu interes sa soseasca.
    EN: Update: I’ve ordered these too :) and I’m eagerly waiting for them to arrive.

    b)

    Cea din mijloc exista la House of Fraser si in varianta cu imprimeu cirese (care este noua mea obsesie; anul trecut voiam ananasi, acum cirese, deci se pare ca la mine e pe baza de fructe :)) si cu imprimeu trandafiri:

    EN: The one in the middle is stocked by House of Fraser as well and it’s also available in a lovely cherry print (which is my new – and yet unsatisfied – obsession; last year it was pineapples, now it’s cherries – looks like I’m in a fruity kind of mood :)) and in a more classic rose print:

    retro 50s black and red cherry print fit and flare mini dress full circle dress halter neck and 50s white and red floral print rose print full circle fit and flare mini dress halter neck stretch cotton50s fit and flare/ full circle mini dresses with halter neck design in black/ red cherry print and white/ red rose print (Jolie Moi) – £52,99 here;
    Rochii anii ’50 clos, scurte, cu imprimeu cirese si trandafiri si bretea care se leaga dupa gat – £52,99 (aprox. 290 lei) aici.

    The cherry print dress is at the top of my wishlist of the moment, so I’m warning you: don’t go buying all the size 10/ 12 ones, OR ELSE :)!

    Here is the dress in all three prints, on a model:

    retro 50s skater fit and flare dress dresses short mini swing dress full circle dress with halter neck in cherry print in tropical print and in rose print stretch cotton50s fit and and flare mini dresses with halter neck strap, in cherry print, in tropical bird and floral print and in rose print stretch cotton (Jolie Moi) – £40/ £45 here.

    Rochii anii ’50 clos, scurte, cu imprimeu cirese, tropical si trandafiri, din bumbac elastic (marca Jolie Moi) – £40/ £45 (aprox. 230/ 260 lei) aici.

    EN: I have the tropical one in the middle, so if you’re wondering what size to get, I’d say go with your regular size because the fabric is quite stretchy: I usually wear size UK 10, but I bought mine in size 12 because a similar style I own in size 10 (I’m wearing it here) is a bit too tight, however it was quite big and I had to have it altered.

    c)

    EN: And speaking of tropical dresses, guess who got the one below as a VERY early Christmas present (it’s the end of September as I write this) from her husband :)?

    Si, daca tot am adus vorba de rochii cu imprimeu tropical, ghici cine a primit-o pe cea de mai jos pe post de cadou FOARTE timpuriu de Craciun, de la sotul ei (scriu asta la sfarsitul lui Septembrie) :)?

    tropical fit and flare skater dress dresses in palm tree print in teal and coral with pockets and V back in stretch cottonTeal/ coral tropical skater dress in palm tree print with pockets and V neck (Closet) – £50 here/ here/ here; (there’s also a wrap pencil skirt in this print – here);
    Rochie clos scurta, turcoaz/ corai, cu buzunare si imprimeu tropical palmieri (Closet) – 295 lei aici/ aici (sau pe link-urile de mai sus).

    EN: Concerning sizing, with Closet I always get size UK 12 (the brands size chart on the Dorothy Perkins website suggests getting a size bigger with this brand) and, even though this dress is stretchy, I’d say it’s a bit smaller than the (many) others I have from Closet (usually size 12 is a bit loose on top, but this one fits me perfectly), so you might want to size up with this one.

    Eu mi-am luat marimea 40/ UK 12, pentru ca pe site-ul Dorothy Perkins, de unde stiu eu marca asta, sugestia e sa-ti iei un numar mai mare decat in mod normal. Am foarte multe rochii Closet si, de obicei, marimea 12 mi-e un pic larga in partea de sus, dar asta, desi e elastica, imi vine perfect, asa ca daca aveti dubii in privinta marimii, as zice sa o alegeti pe cea mai mare.

    Apropo de Roh Boutique, voiam sa-i laud pentru ca rochia a venit foarte repede (in 2 zile, ceea ce pentru un magazin online din Romania mi se pare incredibil), dar, pe de alta parte, rochia costa 205 lei cand mi-am comandat-o eu (fara sa fie la vreo promotie), iar doua zile mai tarziu era 295 (poate pentru ca a crescut foarte mult lira sterlina in ultimul timp? (Rochiile Closet sunt “designed and made in London)).

  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;
    Bluza stil tunica din matase, 40£ (aprox. 230 ron) la Asos, aici

    si mai multe modele de rochii:

    Traffic People silk Seashell & Bird Mercy Dress, 49£ here (in movement + different print here);
    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:

    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).

    * Scuze ca unele poze sunt de mai multe ori, dar ultimul update pentru blog a facut o mare porcarie cu pozele si incerc cu disperare diverse modalitati de a remedia situatia :).

    EN: Sorry about the same photo appearing more than once, but the latest WordPress update (and the last I’ll ever make) completely messed up my photos, so I’m desperately trying to fix the problem!

    silk10mix2

    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):
    EN: 3 more dresses in this Prairie print:

    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 :).

    silk14mix2Traffic People floral print silk chiffon maxi dress with deep plunged v neck and back – 31£ at USC, here, and 60£ at Asos, here (where you can see it in movement).

    10.

    silk13mixTraffic People Shades of Summer Byronic silk chiffon mini Swing Dress with high neckline and ruffle at the hem, in shades of grey (definitely not 50 :)) – 40£ here (the photo of the black dress is just to show you what it looks like from the back);

    Rochie mini din voal de matase gri in degrade, cu volan la terminatie – 40£ (aprox. 230 ron) la Traffic People, aici (poza cu rochia neagra este doar pentru a va arata si partea din spate).

    O am pe cea neagra de anul trecut, dar inca n-am purtat-o niciodata. (Din ciclul atat de multe rochii, o viata sociala… NU la fel de multa, sa zicem :)).
    EN: I’ve had the black one for a year, but I just haven’t gone round to wearing it yet. (Yep, my social life is less than exciting I’m afraid.)

    Cumparaturi placute si (in caz ca nu va place in mod special zapada, noroiul si frigul) curaj, ca pana la urma vine si vara (peste vreo 6 luni :))! Pasarea flamingo va zbura din nou :)!

    EN: Happy Shopping and (in case you are not much of a cold weather, snow & mud person) hang on, winter can’t last for ever (I hope). The flamingo will rise again :).


  4. The Dresses that Got to See Santorini

    October 17, 2012 by raluca

    ash wedge sandalsRochie de matase cu franjuri Traffic People (este inca in stoc) /// EN: Traffic People Prairie Tease silk dress with fringes (still available);
    Sandale Ash nude cu talpa ortopedica de pluta/// EN: Ash Roxy tan wedge sandals (Spartoo)

    Rochia Traffic People (brandul meu preferat!) a fost o achizitie de ultim moment inainte de vacanta de vara. Cum sunt de ceva vreme obsedata de anii ’20, atractia franjurilor a fost irezistibila, desi sunt cam singurul element care aduce aminte de moda perioadei respective. Asta nu m-a impiedicat, dupa cum se vede, sa fac niste miscari de dans care in mintea mea au legatura cu Charleston-ul. (Apropo de impiedicat, in rochia asta eram imbracata cand am cazut in Sorrento. Si nu regret niciun moment ca am ales sa salvez rochia si nu pe mine. Pentru ca merita.)

    Sandalele Ash au fost cumparatura online care mi-a provocat cele mai mari emotii de pana acum, pentru ca in ciuda research-ului extensiv nu am reusit sa ma lamuresc daca ar trebui sa imi cumpar masura 38 sau 39 (eu purtand cam 38,5). Pana la urma am pariat pe 39 si, desi am fost convinsa pana in ultimul moment ca va trebui sa le dau inapoi (sunt o mare optimista :D!), am avut, surprinzator, dreptate. Masura e buna, culoarea ideala (“nude” aproape perfect pentru varianta mea bronzata), insa pielea nu e atat de moale pe cat m-as fi asteptat de la niste sandale care nu au fost deloc ieftine. Oricum am retinut magazinul online Spartoo, care inteleg ca ofera si retur gratuit pentru produse (nu am testat inca, dar sper ca asa este). (Costa de la 100 ron in sus sa trimiti prin Posta Romana o pereche de incaltaminte in Anglia, de exemplu, asa ca returul gratuit ar  fi foarte bun la casa omului!)

    EN: This Traffic People dress was a last minute purchase before my summer holiday. As I’ve been obsessing for some time over anything 1920’s-related, I was irresistibly drawn to the tassels, even though they are about the only element reminiscent of the period’s fashion. As you can see, however, this didn’t stop me from trying some Charleston-inspired dancing moves (well…they are Charleston-inspired in my head!). (This is also the dress I was wearing when I tripped and fell in Sorrento. And not for one moment do I regret saving the dress instead of myself. Because she’s worth it!)

    The Ash wedge sandals have been the most worrisome purchase in my online shopping career so far, because despite extensive research, I couldn’t decide for the life of me what size to order (38 or 39, my real size being 38,5). I ended up ordering size 39 and even though I was sure I was going to have to send them back (I’m a great optimist :D!), they turned out to be alright. So the size is good, the colour is just what I wanted (the perfect “nude” for my tanned skin), the only complaint is that the leather isn’t as soft as I’d have expected from sandals that weren’t cheap at all by my standards. All in all, I think I will be ordering again from Spartoo, especially since as far as I understand  they offer free returns (I haven’t tested it yet, but I hope I’m right!) – which is a big deal, since returning shoes by mail can be pretty expensive.

    Rochie de matase in degrade Traffic People /// EN: Traffic People silk ombre dress.

    Rochia care mi se pare ca seamana cu un norisor diafan :D, in varianta fara blitz/ cu blitz (cu blitz arata rochiile si pozele in general mai bine, fara blitz, eu. Alegerea este DRAMATICA!!!!)
    EN: I think this dress looks just like an ethereal little cloud :D. You can see it both without and with flash – the flash version makes the dresses and the photos in general look better, while the no flash one makes me look better, I think. The choice is always heart-breaking!!!

    Rochie de matase cu paiete Warehouse /// EN: Warehouse Silk Sequin over Print Dress;
    Sandale peep toe cu talpa ortopedica Musette /// EN: Musette peep toe leather (faux snakeskin) wedge sandals.

    Am folosit mai demult rochia Warehouse intr-un colaj in care visam la Capri si probabil singura persoana pe care am convins-o sa si-o cumpere am fost chiar eu. (Stiu, puterea mea de manipulare ma surprinde uneori chiar si pe mine :D!) Din pacate nu este chiar foarte confortabila, pentru ca trebuie sa ai mereu grija la paiete (nu se vede foarte bine in poze, dar umerii sunt acoperiti cu paiete argintii uriase), care se rasucesc si se rup destul de usor (asa ca nici vorba sa poata fi purtata cu o geanta cu bareta pe umar – ceea ce este o problema pentru mine, care gasesc plicurile extrem de incomode). Dar pana la urma nu-i nimic grav, e si ea un suflet si o iubesc asa cum e :D.

    Sandalele Musette sunt varianta in nuante de bej a celor de aici. Nu sunt chiar la fel de usor de asortat ca cele de la Ash, dar sunt mai comode, asa ca presimt ca ne va lega o frumoasa prietenie.

    EN: A while ago I used this Warehouse dress in a collage with Capri as a background and probably the only person that was convinced to buy it was myself (I’m a manipulative little b**?!, aren’t I :D?). Unfortunately it’s not very user-friendly, because you always have to pay attention to the sequins (it’s not very clear in the photos, but the top part is  covered in giant silver sequins), which tend to twist and break quite easily. This means you can’t wear it with a bag that has a shoulder strap, which is a problem for me since I find clutches pretty uncomfortable. But hey, in the end it’s not such a biggy, even if all the sequins do fall of, there will still be a nice silk dress left underneath.
    The sandals are the beige version of these ones. Even though the snake-effect upper makes them less of a nude colour than the Ash wedges, they are definitely more comfortable, so I think this trip to Santorini was the beginning of a beautiful friendship for us.

    Rochie de matase asimetrica Whistles /// EN: Whistles Silk high low dress.

    Rochie de matase in degrade Traffic People /// EN: Traffic People Silk ombre dress.

    Chiar daca de fapt nu are nicio forma, rochia asta este una din preferatele mele: culorile sunt foarte “de vara”, este supercomoda si nu se sifoneaza in valiza – perfectiunea intruchipata!
    EN: Even though it’s practically shapeless, this dress is one of my absolute favourites: it’s got summery colours, it’s super comfortable and it doesn’t crease in my suitcase – dress perfection, that’s what I say!

    Rochie de matase cu spatele gol See by Chloe (Fashion Days) /// EN: See by Chloe silk backless dress with star print (Starry Night Blue Silk Dress).

    Spre deosebire de vacanta in Sorrento, acum am fost mult mai harnica in privinta pozelor cu rochii (doar in ultima seara, a saptea :D, m-am lenevit, asa ca am apelat la una dintre rochiile de rezerva). Din pacate insa fotografiile facute noaptea nu arata chiar bine, iar decorul e… fascinant de original. (Balconul, wow, ce inedit! Si a fost si o seara cand NU am folosit balconul drept locatie! Stiu, excentric de-a dreptul :D!). Deh, vacante frumoase sa mai avem, ca loc de imbunatatit sigur este!

    EN: Unlike my holiday in Sorrento, this time I was a lot more dedicated to documenting my outfits (except for the last evening when I was feeling too lazy and sad about leaving to pose prettily for the camera). My intentions were good, the outcome… not so much: photos taken at night are hardly good quality and the background is…fascinatingly original. (The balcony, wow, what a revolutionary idea! And there was even an evening when we didn’t use the balcony as a location!!! How eccentric of us!). So we’d better keep the holidays coming, because we sure can use the practice, that’s what I say!

    Rochie de matase cu spatele gol/// EN: Silk dress with open back: By Zoe (Asos)
    Colier corai/// EN: Coral necklace: Benvenutti
    Inel din agat albastru/// EN: Blue Agate Ring: Lola Rose (Asos)
    Geanta/// EN: Bag: Mango
    Sandale peep toe cu talpa ortopedica/// EN: Peep toe leather (faux snakeskin) wedge sandals: Musette

    Mi-am dorit rochia asta vreo 6 luni si de Craciun parintii mei mi-au facut marea surpriza de a mi-o lua cadou. Cand spun cadou surpriza, trebuie sa intelegeti ca lucrurile au stat cam asa: cu vreo 2 luni inainte de Craciun, cand la un control de rutina al wishlist-ului meu de la Asos am remarcat cu groaza ca mai exista o singura rochie marimea mea pe stoc (pe care oricand ar fi putut sa mi-o ia de sub nas un om rau, care n-ar fi iubit-o la fel fel de mult), am sunat-o pe mama si am intrebat-o daca nu vrea sa-mi faca un cadou dragut de Craciun. A fost de acord, i-am trimis link-ul si, doua luni mai tarziu… nu o sa credeti ce am gasit sub brad!!! Da, chiar rochia By Zoe! (Ceea ce nu inseamna ca nu m-am bucurat foarte mult cand am vazut-o in persoana, draguta de ea!). Cam asa e cu cadourile pe care le primesc eu, pentru ca sunt de principiul “surpriza, surpriza, da’ sa stim si noi ce e”. (Exista si scenariul B, cand inmanez celor dragi o lista FOARTE cuprinzatoare de lucruri pe care mi le-as dori, astfel incat sa-mi poata alege ceva…surpriza, bineinteles!).

    Spuneam deci ca e o rochie pe care mi-am dorit-o si care imi place foarte mult. Din pacate, insa, cand a venit momentul sa plec in vacanta s-a dovedit ca rochia nu este prea bine adaptata zborului cu avionul, pentru ca se sifoneaza foarte usor si vizibil. Asa ca biata de ea a fost nefericita necastigatoare a unei vacante in Italia si prima ei iesire in lume, in loc sa fie la Sorrento, a fost la Gradina Botanica din Bucuresti… (Un fel de povestire “Puiul”, daca v-o amintiti: “Nu ma lasati! Nu ma lasati!”, doar ca in locul puiului de prepelita acum a fost lasata in urma rochia). Da, viata e nedreapta, dar ma consolez macar cu gandul ca a calatorit din Franta in Anglia – By Zoe fiind un brand francez.

    Sa trecem la lucruri ma putin dramatice: sandalele de la Musette. Mi le-am cumparat la sfarsitul lui august, de la reduceri, si mi se par foarte comode: talpa ortopedica de pluta (usoara) e preferata mea si, desi sunt destul de inalte, ofera stabilitate piciorului care este bine sustinut de forma peep toe si de baretele in X – care mi se pare ca le dau si un aer retro si mai elegant decat poti spera de la niste sandale cu talpa ortopedica de pluta. Atat de incantata am fost de ele incat la cateva zile dupa fericita achizitie m-am intors la prietenenul meu drag, magazinul Musette din Unirea, si mi le-am cumparat si in cealalta varianta existenta, in nuante de bej. Si ma bucur sa raportez ca s-au comportat mai mult decat satisfacator la mers pe piatra cubica (diabolica) din Santorini. Asa ca voilà, final fericit de aceasta data :D!

    EN: I’d been lusting after this By Zoe dress for about 6 months when my wonderful parents finally “surprised” me with it for Christmas. When I say surprised, you have to understand that things went like this: about 2 months before Christmas, when, during a routine inspection of my Asos wishlist, I noticed with horror that there was only one dress in my size left in stock (which could have been easily snatched right from under my nose by some mean person who wouldn’t have loved it as much as me), I called my mom and asked her if she wanted to buy me a nice Christmas gift. She agreed, I sent her the link and, two months later… guess what I found under the Christmas tree!!! Yep, it was the By Zoe dress all right! (Which doesn’t mean I wasn’t extremely happy to meet her lovely self in person!). This pretty much sums up my gift-receiving habits: I’m all for a nice surprise, just so long as I know what it is :D. (There’s also a B Scenario, where I hand my loved ones a very comprehensive list of things I want, so they can choose a… surprise gift, of course!).

    So I was saying that this is a dress that I really, really wanted and which I truly love. Tragically however, when the time came to pack for my summer vacation this year, the dress proved to be totally unsuitable for air travel, as it wrinkles very easily. So the poor thing was doomed to be left behind and, instead of making its first appearance in Sorrento, Italy, I wore it for the first time while taking photos for this post, in the Bucharest Botanical Garden …Yes, life is unfair, but at least I take some comfort in the thought that the dress at least travelled from France to the UK – By Zoe being a French brand.

    Moving on to more positive things: the sandals (by Romanian brand Musette) which I got in the August sales proved to be a great buy: the cork wedge – my favourite – is very light and, although it’s quite high, the sandals are pretty easy to walk in, as the small peep toe and criss-cross straps make them feel very secure on your feet (added bonus – the criss-cross straps make them a little more elegant – with a bit of a retro vibe too in my opinion – than you’d generally expect from cork wedge sandals). I was sooo pleased with them that a few days after I bought them I returned to the store and unrepentantly got them in the other available colourway, which is various shades of taupe and beige. I’m very happy to report that they dealt just fine with the (diabolical) cobble stones in Santorini. So, voilà, it’s a happy ending this time!
