Funny Bags

Nu stiu daca sa ma bucur (ca inca il regasesc pe copilul din mine – care probabil se da huta pe circumvolutiuni) sau sa ma ingrijorez (ca e un semn de retard mintal), cert e ca la cei aproape 34 de ani ai mei, de fiecare data cand vad cate o geanta haioasa, cu animalute, ganganii, shobaltrobolibozauri*, fructe etc. (*cuvant inventat de tata, cand eram mica, care desemneaza un fel de dinozaur cu buline), simt negresit acel gol in stomac premergator gestului de apasare a butonului “adauga in cosul de cumparaturi”.

De multe ori reusesc din fericire sa ma controlez, gandindu-ma ca “unde o sa port eu asa ceva?” (sunt acea persoana plicticoasa care poarta in fiecare zi aceeasi geanta bej vara si aceeasi geanta neagra iarna)… dar alteori nu, asa ca deocamdata sunt mandra posesoare a unui plic cu urechiuse de liliac si mi l-am comandat pe cel in forma de portocala de mai jos, iar lista de tentatii tot creste:

EN: Even though I’m almost 34, the child in me seems to be alive and kicking (hard!), because the first thing on my mind whenever a spot one of these novelty bags (especially if it has ears! Ears are cute!) usually is I. WANT. IT. SO. BAD!

Many a time I fortunately manage to control my enthusiasm: for one thing, my storage space situation is pretty desperate (my husband and I are on the brink of being drowned in a sea of dresses, my pantry and my balcony are filled with shoes and I keep the shoe polish in the kitchen cabinets…) and for another, it’s not like I’d actually get to wear these bags: I’m the kind of boring bag person that wears the same (huge) beige handbag all summer long and the same (huge) black handbag all winter long. Sometimes however the urge is just too damn strong! So far I’ve given in to a clutch with bat ears and the orange-shaped one below, but temptation keeps rearing its ugly head:


racoon raccoon shaped bag and owl shaped bag purse messenger crossbody bag accessorize  Raccoon crossbody bag and owl messenger bag from Accessorize – £25 here and £22 here; (there’s also an owl backpack and a badger backpack);
Geanta raton si bufnita de la Accessorize – £25 (aprox. 142 lei) aici si £22 (aprox. 125 lei) aici.

(Probabil exista si in magazinele din Romania, dar de cand l-au inchis pe cel din Unirea – booo! -, nu prea mai sunt la curent cu ce ajunge si ce nu din colectii la noi).

Cum poti sa rezisti unei genti cu raton languros (si codita & urechiuse), CUM???

EN: Do you understand my torment now? How is one supposed to resist the allure of a languorous raccoon, with its cute little tale and ears, HOW?!?


pink and black lips bag clutch and orange fruit shaped clutch bagAsos pink and black lips bag – £18 here and here – and New Look orange fruit-shaped clutch – £9,99 here.
Geanta in forma de buze, roz si neagra – £18 (aprox. 100 lei) aici si aici – si in forma de portocala (New Look) – £9,99 (aprox. 57 lei) aici.

(Plicul in forma de portocala s-a strecurat intr-o comanda de la Asos dupa de am vazut-o pe The Cherry Blossom Girl purtand unul similar, in forma de lamaie.

EN: The orange-shaped clutch sneaked into my Asos shopping basket after I saw The Cherry Blossom Girl wearing a similar lemon-shaped one.)


camera shaped bag purse handbag messenger crossbody bag accessorizeAccessorize camera-shaped bag – £29 here;
Geanta in forma de aparat foto (Accessorize) – £29 (aprox. 165 lei) aici.

O geanta in forma de camera foto este clar ceva care lipseste din viata mea! (ca sa nu mai zic ca numai un blogger vai de capul lui ar putea sa nu aiba una. Jenant!) Mi-as fi cumparat-o demult daca o gaseam in magazinul din Sun Plaza, dar asa, avand in vedere ca trebuie sa platesc si livrarea (si ca probabil n-o s-o port niciodata), ma roade (deocamdata) constiinta…

EN: I’ve been lusting after this bag for months now (for what (blogger’s) life can ever be complete, I ask you, without a camera shaped-bag?!?), but the fact that I’ll probably never wear it in “real life” and that it costs as much as a dress have so far managed to keep me from clicking the “add to bag” button. So far!

Halloween Costume Ideas

Pana anul asta nu m-a prea pasionat aceasta sarbatoare nespecifica neamului nostru (nu ca as plezni de patriotism), dar cred ca sunt pe cale sa ma razgandesc acum ca am descoperit rochiile in stilul anilor ’50, cu imprimeuri kitsch numai bune de Halloween, de la Hell Bunny.

EN: Halloween is an imported holiday in my country, so I’ve never been much of a fan. I think I’m about to change my mind, though, now that I’ve discovered Hell Bunny’s range of kitsch print 50’s style dresses. An outfit that’s both fun and vintage-inspired? Oh, my! That’s a dream come true!



rochie halloween stil anii 50 cu imprimeu lilieciRochie Halloween stil anii ’50 cu imprimeu lilieci – 42,99£ (aprox. 230 ron) aici si aici (sau in varianta negru cu alb – aici);

Hell Bunny retro style bat print dress – 42,99£ here and here (also available in black and white).


Sau o versiune mini:
EN: Or a mini version:

Hell Bunny Bat print mini dressHell Bunny bat print mini dress – 29,99£ here – all three colourways (and also here – in green; here – in black;

Rochie mini cu imprimeu lilieci – 29,99£ (aprox. 160 ron) aici – toate variantele de culoare (aici – pe verde; aici – pe negru).


O rochie cu lilieci merge desigur de minune cu…

EN: A bat print dress makes of course a match made in heaven hell with…

Asos bat wings clutch for HalloweenAsos bat wing clutch – 18£ here;
Plic cu aripi de liliac – 18£ (aprox. 42 ron) la Asos, aici.


… si cu…

EN: ... and also with…

Vampire Bat Horror Halloween cardiganVampire Cardigan top – 29,99£ here;
Cardigan cu vampir/ vampirita – 29,99£ (aprox. 160 ron) aici.


halloween bat sequin mask and bat suspender tightsBat sequin maskhere – and bat suspender tightshere, 8£ each;
Masca liliac din strasuri – aici – si dresuri cu lilieci – aici, 8£ (aprox. 40 ron) fiecare.

Din ciclul “Unde-ti sta capul iti vor sta si picioarele” :).


Daca sunteti in bani, am si o propunere de designer pentru look-ul de inspiratie “Dracula’s Bride”
EN: If you’ve got the cash, I also have a designer option for the “Dracula’s Bride” look:

Alexander McQueen Gothic Catholic Mandarin high low dressAlexander McQueen “Mandarin” collar high low dress in black and red – 2705€ here;
Rochie asimetrica, cu guler inalt Alexander McQueen – 2705€ aici.

Ii place si Contelui :)
EN: The Count approves :).


halloween cat ears veil headbandBentita cu urechi de pisica si voaleta – 10£ (aprox. 53 ron) aici;
Cat ears veil headband – 10£ here.


Hell Bunny 50s style black widow spider print Halloween dressHell Bunny 50’s style Black Widow Spider print Halloween dress – 46,99£ here and here;

Rochie Halloween cu imprimeu panza de paianjen/ Vaduva Neagra – 46,99£ (aprox. 250 ron) aici si aici.


Pentru un look si mai “mortal”, purtati-o cu…

EN: For an even deadlier look, be sure to pair it with…

Spider cardiganSpider cardigan – 29,99£ here;
Cardigan cu paianjeni – 29,99£ (aprox. 160 ron) aici.


Si acum un mix “ingrozitor”:

EN: If you feel like mixing your horrors:

spider cobweb and skull print halloween dressSpider, cobweb and skull print dress – 41,99£ here;
Rochie cu imprimeu panze de paianjen si cranii – 41,99£ (aprox. 220 ron) aici.


Sau poate preferati doar cranii, totusi:

EN: Or maybe you just wanna keep it simple, with just a bunch o’ skulls:

rochie cu imprimeu craniiRochie cu imprimeu cranii – 39,99£ (aprox. 210 ron) aici;
Day of the Dead 50’s skull print dress from Banned – 39,99£ here.

… desi, cu asemenea tatuaje, cred ca rochia “horror” e de prisos :).


Frankenstein print dressFrankenstein (and other horrors) print dress – 39,99£ here; (there’s also a mini length version here);

Rochie cu imprimeu Frankenstein (si alte orori) – 39,99£ (aprox. 210 ron) aici (si exista si o versiune mini aici).


rochie cu imprimeu horror ochiRochie cu imprimeu horror ochi – 24,99£ (aprox. 130 ron) aici;
Eyeball horror print mini dress – 24,99£ here.


Ambele rochii de mai sus se asorteaza perfect cu un pulover cu niste “manute” scheletice verzi:

EN: A creepy cardigan with slimy green skeleton hands would finish off the look to perfection:

skeleton hand cardiganSkeleton hand cardigan top – 29.99£ here;
Pulover cu maini de schelet – 29.99£ (aprox. 160 ron) aici.


Si, de fapt, de ce sa va opriti la o singura pereche de maini de schelet, cand puteti avea chiar doua:

EN: And why stop at just one pair of skeleton hands (that’s so mainstream!), when you can in fact have two:

manusi cu imprimeu schelet din piele pentru halloweenManusi schelet, din piele (ce ironic :)) – 22£ (aprox. 116 ron) la Asos, aici.
Asos leather skeleton gloves (a bit ironic, isn’t it :) – about them being leather I mean) – 22£ here.

Bineinteles ca daca preferati ceva mai subtil, si o rochie in stilul anilor ’50 fara imprimeu horror poate fi foarte bine folosita pe post de costum de Hallowen (si aici va indrum din nou, ca o plicticoasa ce sunt, spre postarea mea cu rochii anii ’50), mai ales daca machiajul, coafura si accesoriile sunt putin excesive (buze rosii, niste bucle mai interesante – ca ale manechinelor din pozele de mai sus – sau poate chiar o peruca stil Marilyn Monroe, o floare in par, ciorapi plasa negri, o poseta retro, un porttigaret etc.).

EN: Should you want to play it more subtle, a 50’s style dress without the kitschy horror print could make a great Halloween outfit as well (and here, for the millionth time, I’m referring you to my 50’s inspired dresses post) – especially if your make-up, hair and accessories are a bit over the top (think red lips, retro curls – I find the Hell Bunny models’ hairstyles very inspiring – or maybe even a Marilyn Monroe style wig, flower hair clips, black fishnet tights, a vintage inspired handbag, a cigarette holder etc.).


V-ati plictisit de rochii retro si imprimeuri horror?
O alta idee de costum de Halloween care imi place este Wednesday Addams (din Familia Addams):

EN: Have you had enough of retro dresses and creepy prints? I haven’t, but oh, well. Another costume idea that I’m quite fond of is Wednesday Addams:


rochie din catifea neagra cu guler alb din dantela stil wednesday addamsRochie din catifea neagra cu guler alb din dantela – 30£ (aprox. 160 ron) la Asos, aici;
Pop Boutique Wednesday Addams style black velvet dress with white collar – 30£ here.


Daca n-aveti in dotare parul necesar pentru coditele impletite ale lui Wednesday Addams, se rezolva rapid cu o peruca, eventual chiar una care are deja codite:

EN: If your hair isn’t long enough to make it into Wednesday’s trademark braids, a brown wig should do the trick just fine and you can even get one that’s already braided:

wednesday addams braids wigWednesday Addams braided wig – 10,58£ here.


Inainte sa apara la Asos rochia de mai sus, o aveam de mai demult in vederea pe asta, care insa nu mai exista decat in versiune pentru gravide (dar, avand in vedere ca are talia sus si e elastica, s-ar putea sa mearga purtata si de ne-gravide):

EN: Before the dress above showed up on the Asos website, I had this one in mind for a Wednesday outfit, but now it’s only available in the maternity range. However I think it might work for non-pregnant ladies as well given that it’s stretchy and has a high waist:

Asos black mesh skater dress with white collarAsos Maternity black mesh skater dress with white collar and cuffs and 3/4 sleeve – 32£ here;
Rochie neagra din voal cu guler si mansete albe si maneci 3/4, din gama Maternity – 32£ (aprox. 170 ron) aici.


Sau, daca nu va plac rochiile evazate, puteti incerca o varianta mai sexy de Wednesday Addams, purtand o rochie conica:

EN: You can be a sexier version of this character by wearing a pencil dress instead of a flared one:

rochie neagra conica midi cu guler si mansete albe din dantela si maneci trei sferturiRochie conica midi neagra, cu guler si mansete albe din dantela si maneci trei sferturi – 75£ (aprox. 400 ron) aici.
Lydia Bright black midi pencil dress with white collar and cuffs and three-quarter-length sleeves – 75£ at Asos, here.


Trick or treat book clutchAsos (Trick or) Treat book clutch – 28£ here;
Geanta plic/ clutch in forma de carte (Trick or) Treat – 28£ (aprox. 150 ron) aici.


Iata si o rochie care cred ca ar incanta-o pe Morticia, dat fiind ca ei ii plac doar tulpinile de trandafiri, nu si florile (pe care le taie):

EN: Here’s a dress that might appeal to Morticia Addams’s sunny disposition, given that she’s in the habit of cutting the buds off of roses (and only keeps the stems):

Bleeding Rose DressBleeding rose dress – 43,99£ here;
Rochie cu imprimeu trandafiri insangerati – 43,99£ (aprox. 230 ron) aici.


Chiar daca rochia-pulover de mai jos nu cred ca a fost gandita ca vestimentatie de Halloween, mie mi se pare ca ar merge tocmai bine pe post de Cousin Itt mai scarmanat, inainte sa-si usuce parul cu placa (sau gorila/ Big Foot/ caine ciobanesc):

EN: I doubt the jumper dress below was intended as a Halloween outfit, however I find it would make a pretty good “Cousin Itt right after the bath, before using the flat iron” (or a gorilla or Big Foot or a shepherd dog):

Fluffy Jumper dressAsos fluffy jumper dress – 40£ here;
Rochie-pulover “pufoasa” – 40£ (aprox. 210 ron) aici.

Mi se pare ca zambetul sagalnic de vino-ncoa’ al manechinului se potriveste DE MINUNE cu aceasta pufosenie extrem de sexoasa! Sunt sigura ca niciun Big Foot singuratic nu i-ar putea rezista!

EN: I think the model’s come-hither look is just what the ravishing sexiness of this fluffy motherf%%%%r needed! I bet no lonely Big Foot out there stands a chance!

Familia Addams(Cousin Itt este cel “paros”, din dreapta / EN: Cousin Itt is the hairy one on the right).

(Pentru inspiratie pe tema Familia Addams va recomand sa va uitati la acest pictorial absolut minunat de pe blogul The Cherry Blossom Girl.

EN: For inspiration on Addams Family costumes check out this amazing post on The Cherry Blossom Girl blog.)


Tot din categoria costume involuntare de Halloween va prezint si aceasta rochie:

EN: Also from the involuntary Halloween costume category, I give you this dress:

Three Floor Dinosaur dress

Acesta creatie “edgy” ar fi fost un minunat costum de dinozaur (rawr!) dar luati-va gandul pentru ca s-a vandut la doar cateva zile de la aparitia pe site-ul Asos, desi costa 128£ (e marca Three Floor si o puteti vedea aici). Ceea ce inseamna ca acum cineva, undeva (de fapt mai multe persoane) o poarta in lume si NU pe post de costum de Halloween…

EN: This “edgy” creation would have made a great dinosaur costume (rawr!) but, alas, it sold out within days of appearing on the Asos website even though it costs 128£. (It’s by Three Floor and you can see it – but, sorry to rub it in, NOT buy it – here). Which means that there are (edgy) people out there who are actually wearing this (edgy) dress, perhaps even as you’re reading this, and NOT as a Halloween outfit…


pumpkin bagAsos pumpkin across body bag – 18£ here;
Geanta in forma de dovleac – 18£ (aprox. 95 ron) aici.

Ramanem pe nota portocalie si va las cu aceasta geanta zambareata, care, asa cum se vede, trebuie pusa in evidenta cu ajutorul unui pulover flocos stil Cousin Itt.

EN: We end on a season-appropriate orange note with this smiley bag: notice how the excessively furry Cousin Itt style sweater makes it stand out! This Itt syle sure is an IT trend!

Happy Halloween shopping!

Kiss My… Shoes?!? – Saruta-ma pe… Pantofi?!?

Acum doua saptamani, pe cand imi cautam niste sandale pentru o nunta la care merg in august (si mi le-am luat pe astea) am dat de aceste “buzate”:

EN: Two weeks ago, while I was searching for the perfect pair of tan sandals for a wedding I’m going to in August (and I got these), I came across these lippy beauties:

paul and betty pretty lips sandalsPaul & Betty “Pretty Lips” Nude Stiletto Sandals – 299€ at Sarenza, here;
Sandale cu buze, marca Paul & Betty – 299€ (aprox. 1350 ron) la Sarenza, aici.

paul and betty pretty lips sandals heelsCe ziceti, va “surade” ideea :)?

Exista si o varianta mai subtila, sa zicem, cu o singura pereche de buze – si la reducere!:
EN: There’s also a more… “subtle”, shall we say, version with a single pair of lips – and it’s on sale too!:

paul and betty pretty lips shoes heelsPaul & Betty “Pretty Lips” Nude Peep Toe Heels – 135€ at Sarenza, here;
Pantofi cu buze, marca Paul & Betty – 135€ (aprox. 607 ron) la Sarenza, aici.

Desi nu sunt chiar o experta in domeniul incaltamintei mai ciudatele, stiu ca pantofii cu buze nu sunt o idee noua si cred ca o versiune mai cunoscuta este cea a lui Charlotte Olympia (creatoarea faimosilor si des copiatilor balerini si pantofi pisica) – “Kiss Me Dolores”:

EN: Even though I’m not exactly an expert on quirky footwear, I do know that shoes with lips are not a new idea and I think the better known version is Charlotte Olympia’s (she’s the one with the famous and much-copied mouse flats) – “Kiss Me Dolores”:

charlotte olympia kiss me dolores lips shoesCharlotte Olympia “Kiss Me Dolores” Nude/ Red Lips Shoes – out of stock at the moment in this colourway, but still available in white/ red here – where they cost 680£ (Gulp!) and are described as potential bridal shoes.

Pantofi cu buze Charlotte Olympia – “Kiss Me Dolores” – momentan nu se mai gasesc pe bej, ci doar pe alb, aici, unde costa… 680£ (si sunt recomandati ca pantofi de mireasa).

Kitsch sau tocmai cat trebuie de amuzanti? Mie imi plac, mai ales cei Charlotte Olympia (si vreau sa cred ca “Dolores” are legatura cu Lolita aka Dolores Haze) – pentru ca ceilalti parca prea par de jucarie/ plastic – insa, pana nu devin o milioanara excentrica (any day now :)!), nu planuiesc sa-mi cumpar pantofi cu buze de o suta sau cateva sute de euro – dar nici nu m-as supara sa-i primesc cadou!

EN: Kitsch or just the right amount of fun? I for one like them, especially Charlotte Olympia’s version (and I like to think “Dolores” refers to Lolita aka Dolores Haze) – because the other ones look a little bit too much like plastic toy shoes to me – but until I become an eccentric millionaire (any day now, just wait and see :)), I’m not in such a hurry to buy shoes with lips that cost a hundred or a few hundred euros. However I really wouldn’t mind receiving them as a gift :).

In caz ca va plac si voua, ba chiar tocmai v-ati dat seama ca viata e doar o insiruire monotona de zile fara niste pantofi cu buze, dar cei de mai sus vi se par totusi prea scumpi (desi nu stiu de ce ati avea o asemenea parere :)), am gasit si o pereche la un pret mai acatarii (desi tot prea scumpi dupa parerea mea avand in vedere ca sunt din rafie sau ceva asemanator):

EN: In case you’ve just realized that your life wouldn’t be complete without shoes with lips, but are less than eager to spend a month’s worth of rent on them (whyever not?!?), I’ve managed to track down a more affordable version as well (although I still think they’re too expensive considering they’re made of raffia or something similar):

Shellys Dolly Face lips eyelashes ballerina balet flatsShelly’s “Dolly” Ballet Flats with embroidered face (complete with lips and eyelashes) – 54,99£ at New Look, here;
Balerini cu buze si gene (practic cu “fatza”) – 54,99£ (aprox. 290 ron) la New Look, aici.

Am gasit si melodia perfecta pentru tema de azi :)

EN: I have the perfect theme song to end today’s post :)

 ♫♪♫ Tarkan – Kiss Kiss


Kisses and Hugs :)!

Dressing for the Weather – Literally / Cum sa ne Imbracam in Functie de Vreme – O Abordare Literala

Ce-ati zice de niste haine (OK, rochii) care sa reflecte la modul literal conditiile meteo de afara sau, cine stie, pe cele sufletesti? Si cu coloana sonora! (Click pe numele melodiei).

EN: How about some clothes (OK, dresses) that literally reflect the weather outside or possibly your mood? Soundtrack included! (Click on the song name).

mini bodycon dress in storm lightning print Bambam Short Bodycon Dress in Storm/ Lightning Print – 22,50£ at Asos, here;
Rochie scurta si mulata (bodycon) cu imprimeu furtuna/ fulgere – 22,50£ (aprox. 117 ron) la Asos, aici.

SONG: A-ha – Crying in the Rain

De fapt ideea postarii a pornit de la rochia asta, care mi se pare ca intruchipeaza perfect expresia “tuna si fulgera”. Numai buna pentru cand v-ati certat cu iubitul, sunteti in acea perioada a lunii sau pur si simplu vi s-au inecat corabiile. (Iar daca stati intr-un pahar – gen cel in care isi face Dita Von Teese nazdravaniile – puteti fi chiar “furtuna intr-un pahar cu apa”).

EN: Perfect for “storming into the room” or “stealing someone’s thunder”. Or, you know, if you’ve had a fight with your significant other/ it’s that time of the month/ you’re just in a hating mood.

Am si variante la melodie/ EN: Alternative soundrack available:

  • In cazul in care insistati sa ganditi pozitiv si mergeti pe linia fulger >> curent electric >> atractie, viteza etc./ EN: In case you wanna think happy thoughts (Tell me what you’re on, ’cause I want it too :)): SONG: MGMT – Electric Feel sau/ or John Travolta – Greased Lightning.

Dupa furtuna, CURCUBEUL:
EN: After the storm comes the RAINBOW:


asymmetrical high low dip hem dress in rainbow print with open backAsos Asymmetrical/ High Low Dress Rainbow Dress with Open Back – 40£ here;
Rochie curcubeu – asimetrica (scurta in fata si lunga in spate) si cu spatele gol – 40£ (aprox. 208 ron) la Asos, aici.

Rainbow denim skater dress with bow and cut out backRainbow Denim Skater Dress with Bow and Cut-Out Back – 50£ at Topshop, here;
Rochie in nuante pastel cu spatele decupat – 50£ (aprox. 260 ron) at Topshop, aici.

boohoo Rainbow Crochet Bandeau Mini Bodycon DressRainbow Crochet Bandeau Mini Bodycon Dress – 20£ at Boohoo, here;
Rochie crosetata, fara bretele, in culorile curcubeului – 20£ (aprox. 104 ron) la Boohoo, aici.

Umbrela curcubeuSi o umbrela curcubeu (optimista – ploua torential la momentul respectiv), prezentata de prietenele mele, Emilia & Oana :).
EN: And a cute (& optimistic) rainbow umbrella, modelled by my friends :).

SONG: Israel KamakawiwoʻoleSomewhere Over the Rainbow

Din pacate mie melodia imi aminteste de momentul cand moare Dr. Greene in serialul ER :(. Ca sa nu mai vorbim ca si interpretul a murit. Si Judy Garland… OK, deci intelegeti ideea, curcubeele NU au chiar cele mai vesele asociatii in mintea mea. Sa incercam altceva:

EN: Unfortunately this song reminds me of Dr. Greene dying on ER (sobs!). Not to mention that the singer died as well. AND Judy Garland… So OK, you get the point: I’m not a very a positive person. Maybe something else to cheer the mood:


CERUL ALBASTRU il pot exemplifica chiar eu:
EN: I’m wearing the BLUE SKY myself:

traffic people silk chiffon dress with blue sky printTraffic People Silk Chiffon Dress with Blue Sky Print (Forbidden Forest – Pageant Dress in blue) – 54£ here; (I’m wearing the dress here);
Rochie din voal de matase cu imprimeu cer albastru – 54£ (aprox. 280 ron) la Traffic People, aici. (Aici sunt de fapt pozele cu mine purtand rochia).

SONG: Azzurro – Adriano Celentano

SONG: Love is Blue

Versurile nu sunt tocmai vesele, dar melodia mie mi-a creat intotdeauna o dispozitie buna, de cer senin – probabil pentru ca prima oara am auzit-o in reclama asta veche la Barilla (din vremurile cu Canale 5 si RT 4), unde toata lumea e dragalasa.

EN: The lyrics may not be all that joyful, but this song always puts me in a good mood – probably because I first heard it in this old Barilla commercial where everybody’s nice and cozy.

Sau ceva mai de drum lung (si cu Johnny Depp tanar)/ EN: Or something for the open road (with a very young Johnny Depp): SONG: Into the Great Wide Open.


Si apogeul – imprimeul INSORIT:
EN: And finally – a SUNNY print for a sunny mood:

Trollied Dolly sun print dress with cut out in the frontTrollied Dolly Cream Sun Print Dress with small cut-out in the front – 55£ at Pret a Portobello, here;
Rochie cu imprimeu soare si decupaj mic in partea din fata – 55£ (aprox. 285 ron) aici.

SONG: Sunny – Bobby Hebb

SONG: House of the Rising Sun – for those less sunnily disposed.

SONG: Road Trippin – Red Hot Chili Peppers


Sa aveti o saptamana demna de ultima rochie :)!

Have a sun print dress-worthy week :)!
