In the Summertime

In the Summertime 2

Ce am folosit / EN: Items in the collage:

navy paisley floral print fit and flare 50s style dressRochie stil anii ’50, clos, cu imprimeu floral, marca Closet – 35,70£ (aprox. 185 ron)/ 51£ (aprox. 260 ron) la Dorothy Perkins, aici, sau aici; (la Modcloth, aici, gasiti multe comentarii ale cumparatoarelor);

Navy Paisley Floral Print Flared 50’s Style Dress from Closet – 35,70£/ 51£ at Dorothy Perkins, here/ at House of Fraser, here/ 75$ at Modcloth, here (where there are lots and lots of reviews).

Desi colajul se numeste “Summertime” (Vara) mi se pare ca, datorita culorilor din imprimeu (galbenul mustar in mod special), rochia asta e numai buna si de facut tranzitia spre “Cea-al-carei-nume-nu-trebuie-(inca)-rostit” (adica toamna).

In alta ordine de idei, sper ca nu v-ati plictisit (prea tare) de rochiile stil retro de la Closet pe care vi le tot arat, dar mie imi plac la nebunie si mi-am si cumparat una dintr-un colaj recent.

EN: Even though this collage is called “In the Summertime”, I think the colours of this lovely retro-inspired dress (the mustard yellow in particular) make it a great piece not only for summer, but also for transitioning into “She-Who-Must-Not-(Yet)-Be-Named” (autumn, that is).

I hope I haven’t bored you with the numerous Closet dresses I’ve been featuring here, but I do love them so and, as a matter of fact, I’ve even just bought a gorgeous (in my opinion) aqua dress I recently used in a collage.

Pe cei roz vi-i arat mai mult de drag, desi s-ar putea ca rochia sa se potriveasca chiar si cu niste pantofi roz (poate nu atat de aprins si in combinatie cu geanta bej) pentru ca e una din culorile din imprimeu.

(De altfel roz-ul se anunta ca fiind culoarea sezonului urmator (desi asa se zicea si de verde smarald pentru primavara-vara si nu prea am remarcat…), asa ca iata cum ati putea sa-l purtati in doze… netoxice: ca una din culorile nedominante dintr-un imprimeu sau pe pantofi; sau ambele daca aveti curaj).

EN: I’m showing you the pink shoes mostly because I like them, but I think the dress might go with pink shoes as well – maybe not such a bright shade, though, and with a different bag – since it’s one of the colours in the print.

(By the way, pink is supposed to be a big colour this coming season – although they said the same about emerald green for spring/ summer and I didn’t notice all that much of it -, so here’s an idea on how to wear it in small, stomach-friendly doses: as one of the non-dominant colours in a print or on your shoes; or both if you’re feeling brave).

Sailor Dresses – Rochii Stil Marinar

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).


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!

Hell Bunny Motley 50s style Mini Sailor Dress in navyRochie stil marinar marca Hell Bunny /// Hell Bunny “Motley” 50’s Style Mini Sailor Dress.


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 stil marinar, midi, clos, cu spatele gol, bleumarin cu alb – costa intre 44,99£ – 49,99£ (236 ron – 262 ron) aici (disponibila si pe rosuaici – si negru – aici).


Pop Boutique Sailor Dress with collarPop Boutique Sailor Dress with collar – 28£ at Asos, here;
Rochie cu guler marinaresc – 28£ (aprox. 140 ron) la Asos, aici.


Hell Bunny 50's fit and flare Seafarer Sailor Dress with collarHell Bunny 50′s fit and flare midi “Seafarer” Sailor Dress with collar in navy and black – 44,99£ here;
Rochie retro cu guler, clos/ ampla, bleumarin cu alb sau negru cu alb – 44,99£ (aprox. 236 ron) aici.


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.


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.


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?)


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;

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?

50s Style Dresses – Rochii Stil Anii ’50

Daca in anii trecuti ma straduiam sa nu ratez nicio rochie draguta de matase, vara asta vad ca sunt mai fascinata ca oricand de rochiile retro, in stilul anilor ’50 sau Pin Up – stramte in partea de sus si clos, ample, in partea de jos, cu decolteu in forma de inima si imprimeu cat mai colorat sau stil marinar. M-am gandit asadar sa fac o selectie (ca sa nu zic “wishlist”) a celor mai frumoase (dupa parerea mea, bineinteles) rochii stil anii ’50 care se gasesc acum prin magazinele online. Daca va place stilul Mad Men sau pur si simplu aveti o slabiciune pentru rochiile ample, cititi (si priviti) cu incredere:

EN: This summer I’ve been more fascinated than ever with retro-inspired 50′s/ Pin Up-style dresses – with a fit and flare shape, full skirt, sweetheart neckline and colourful prints or sailor style. I thought I’d share my best finds with you, so I made a selection (read “wishlist” :)) of some of the most beautiful (in my opinion) dresses currently available in online stores: if you’re currently (or forever) channelling Mad Men or simply have a weakness for full skirts, read on!

Hell Bunny Becky mini fit and flare tropical pineapple and parrots print dressHell Bunny “Becky” mini fit and flare pineapple and parrot print dress, available to buy at Amazon UK – 24,99£ here/ here;

Rochie stil anii ’50 scurta, cu imprimeu ananasi si papagali, marca Hell Bunny, de la Amazon UK – 24,99£ (aprox. 140 ron) – aici/ aici.

(Livrarea la Amazon UK costa cam intre 6£ – 10£, in functie de “vanzator”, care poate fi chiar Amazon UK – ei ofera si un discount de 20%, parca, la prima cumparatura daca va abonati la newsletter-ul de fashion – sau un alt magazin online; nu am intalnit vanzatori “persoane fizice”. Eu mi-am comandat de 4 ori pana acum si de fiecare data a fost superok).

Asta este una din achizitiile mele recente: pasiunea pentru rochiile de inspiratie anii ’50 s-a manifestat in cazul meu mai ales sub forma a doua “sub-obsesii”, daca le pot numi asa: imprimeul cu ananasi (nu ma intrebati de ce!) si rochia stil marinar, careia i-am dedicat o postare speciala – aici. (Pe mine ma puteti vedea purtandu-mi rochia “mariner” aici).

Ambele sunt marca Hell Bunny (gasiti marca asta aici: Rochii Hell Bunny), care este paradisul rochiilor stil retro/ anii ’50 si de care m-am indragostit: nu numai ca au niste imprimeuri si croieli superdragute, dar majoritatea au si elastic la spate, ceea ce le face foarte comode. Eu mi-am luat marimea S, care imi este putin de tot larga, asa ca daca ezitati intre masuri, luati-o pe cea mai mica!

EN: This is a frock I’ve recently bought: my passion for 50′s-style dresses seems to have “spawned” two obsessions: pineapple print (don’t ask me why!) and sailor dresses, both of which I’ve managed to satisfy, at least for the time being. (You can find my favourite sailor dresses here and here I’m wearing one of them myself).

Both of my buys are from Hell Bunny (lots of dresses from this brand here: Hell Bunny Dresses), a brand I’ve fallen in love with and which is a 50′s lover’s paradise: not only do their frocks have wonderful prints and cuts, but most of them have an elastic back, which makes them really comfortable. I got a size S in both dresses and they are the tiniest bit too loose, so if in doubt, go with the smaller size!

O rochie numai buna de facut tranzitia spre toamna, zic eu, dat fiind ca datorita fondului negru cred ca merge purtata foarte bine si cu ciorapi negri opaci (sau cum or fi ei).

EN: This dark floral dress could be a great piece for making the (painful – for me) transition into autumn and colder weather, as i think it would look nice with both bare legs and tights.

Red and black geometric print short full skirt dress – 48£ here, at Dorothy Perkins, or here, at House of Fraser.

Clar pe lista mea de cumparaturi: ca si rochita de mai sus, mi se pare ca merge purtata nu numai vara, ci si in sezonul rece (dar cu o jupa, probabil, pentru ca imi inchipui ca, fiind din bumbac, se electrizeaza la contactul cu ciorapii).

EN: Definitely on my autumn/ winter wishlist: just like the dress above, I think this cutie can be worn all year around thanks to the black tights-friendly colour palette.

Lindy Bop este un alt brand care face rochii retro frumoase si mai ieftine decat Hell Bunny – dar banuiesc ca si calitatea e un pic sub (poliester in loc de bumbac, de exemplu). Comentariile cumparatoarelor sunt insa in mare parte foarte pozitive!

EN: Lindy Bop is another brand that has some wonderful vintage-style frocks, which are cheaper than Hell Bunny ones – but I suspect the quality – of the fabrics at least (polyester instead of cotton) – somewhat reflects that appealing price point. (Great reviews though!)

Ceea ce e oarecum retro, dar nu chiar in felul cum intentionam eu :).

EN: I hoped white cat-eye sunglasses would look as retro as you can get, but every time I see this photo I want to say “Elton John called and he wants his sunglasses back”. Which is still retro in a way, but somehow not exactly what I had in mind when I bought them :).

Pantofi stil retro, cu bareta T, toc inalt si platforma ascunsa, marca Paco Gil. Mi i-am luat de la Amazon UK, exact de aici, doar ca am dat pe ei mult, mult mai putin decat costa acum (ocazie cu care mi-am dat seama ca la Amazon preturile se pot modifica semnificativ);

In Bloom

In BloomCloset brand 50’s Style fit and flare dress.

Ce am folosit /// Items in the collage:


Closet 50s Style Aqua Green Turquoise floral Swirl Print Fit and Flare DressRochie turcoaz clos (evazata), stil anii ’50, cu despicatura la gat, marca Closet – 225 lei la RohBoutique/ Emag, aici/ aici (sau pe link-urile de mai jos);

Closet Brand 50’s Style Aqua Green (Turquoise) swirl print fit and flare dress with keyhole neckline – 55£ at Dorothy Perkins, here, and at House at Fraser, here (where you can see it on a model);


Mi-am cumparat rochia si, asa cum ma asteptam, e superdraguta, doar ca e un turcoaz mai spre verde in realitate, ceea ce mie imi convine de minune.

Desi materialul are elastan in compozitie, nu e decat foarte, foarte putin elastica. (Specific asta pentru ca “elasticitatea” e o chestie vitala pentru mine la hainele mulate – daca simt ca ma strang la spate catusi de putin, mi se pare ca nu pot sa respir).

Ca intotdeauna de la brandul Closet, mi-am luat marimea 12, care mi-e putin larga la subrat, dar se rezolva.

(In caz ca va intrebati cum e cu marimile englezesti, poate va pot ajuta un pic:

– in principiu atunci cand imi cumpar haine de la marci din Anglia respect urmatoarea regula: cand marimile incep cu UK 6, ca la Asos, imi cumpar marimea UK 10; cand marimile incep cu UK 8, ca la Closet, imi cumpar UK 12. Asta ar fi corespondentul unui M.

– intotdeauna cand imi cumpar de la un magazin sau brand nou ma masor si rezultatul, desi nu e perfect, e satisfacator din punctul meu de vedere.

– o regula general valabila pentru cumparaturile de haine online: e mult mai usor (si ieftin) sa stramtezi ceva prea mare decat sa largesti ceva prea mic.

Din putul gandirii :).)

EN: I bought the dress and, as expected, it’s really lovely, only it’s greener than it appears in the photos – which I’m actually very happy about!

I’m a bit obsessed with stretchiness when it comes to tight-fitting clothes (I can’t wear tight, non stretchy clothes because I feel I can’t breathe), so if you’re a fellow “stretch freak” you may be interested to know that, even though the fabric is 3% elastane, it’s only very slightly stretchy (just enough to make the dress feel comfortable in my opinion).

As I usually do with Closet brand dresses, I bought it in size 12 and it is a little loose under my arms, but that won’t be difficult to fix.

(If you’re in need of a little advice concerning UK sizing, maybe I can help you a bit:

– when shopping from UK brands I usually follow this rule: if the smallest size is UK 6, which is the case with Asos, I buy size 10; if the smallest size is UK 8, which is the case with Closet, I typically buy size 12. This is more or less the equivalent of size M.

– I always check out the sizing chart and measure myself when shopping at a new store or from a new brand. The result may not always be perfect but it’s not too far off either, or I wouldn’t be shopping so much online, now would I :)?

– a general rule when it comes to shopping for clothes online: it’s a lot easier (and cheaper) to fix something that is too large, than to fix something that is too small.

Wise, no :)?)

Geanta galbena: daca va uitati la rochie pe unul din site-uri o sa observati ca galbenul deschis este una din culorile mai putin vizibile din imprimeu, iar un accesoriu in ton o va scoate foarte frumos in evidenta (ca sa nu mai spun ca galbenul e o culoare perfecta pentru vara):

Pantofii colorati i-as asorta cu o geanta intr-o culoare neutra – bej/ nude/ crem -, ca sa nu iasa o tinuta prea “matchy-matchy” (adica prea asortata).

Cred ca doar primele se potrivesc cu rochia noastra, dar fac un trio prea dragut ca sa le despart :).

EN: I think the light pink sandals are the only ones that go with the Closet dress, but they make such a delicious trio I couldn’t bring myself to separate them :).

KG Kurt Geiger “Admire” Beige/ Nude and Pink Leather High-Heeled Peep Toe Court Shoes with 12 cm slim stiletto heel and hidden platform – 65£ at Amazon UK, here/ 49£ on the Kurt Geiger website, here.

P.S. As zice ca doar pantofii nude se potrivesc cu rochia, dar se pare ca, desi nu detin pantofi roz, ii gasesc irezistibili in poze.

EN: I think only the nude peep toes go with the dress, but the pink ones look to yummy to not show them to you.


Red Coral Suede T Strap Wedge SandalsRed/ Coral Suede and Metallic T-Strap Wedge Sandals – 30£ at Dorothy Perkins, here.
Sandale corai/ rosii cu talpa ortopedica, din piele intoarsa – 30£ (aprox. 150 ron) la Dorothy Perkins, aici.


Nu stiu daca m-as fi gandit sa combin rochia cu sandalele astea (pe care le credeam rosii), dar intamplarea a facut sa mi le comand impreuna zilele trecute de la Dorothy Perkins si, probandu-mi achizitiile, am descoperit ca se potrivesc foarte bine pentru ca sandalele sunt mai mult corai decat rosii (iar rochia are corai in ea).

Legat de sandale, sunt foarte incantata de ele: arata destul de finut pe picior datorita baretei subtiri dar bine pozitionate pe degete (adica nu prea in spate, la baza degetelor, ca sa iasa in evidenta “cartoafele” – cum li se intampla unor manechine de aici) si par comode desi sunt foarte inalte.
Nuanta pielii (sau ce o fi) metalizate e discreta, asa ca bareta de pe glezna nu e foarte vizibila (sau asta imi place mie sa cred) si, in consecinta, nici nu “butucanoseste” picioarele. (Sper!)

Mi-am luat masura UK 6 – EU 39 si imi vin destul de bine, sunt poate sunt o idee prea mari/ largi (eu port 38,5), dar datorita baretei de pe glezna ma simt in siguranta in ele.

Singura chestie care ma nemultumeste putin e partea metalica care ma cam indoiesc ca e din piele, asa cum intelesesem eu de pe site, si probabil o sa se scorojeasca destul de repede, mai ales pe platforma. Per total, insa, sunt prea dragute ca sa ma supar si consider ca au meritat din plin banii.

EN: I don’t think combining the dress with these sandals would have occurred to me under normal circumstances, but it so happened that I ordered them from Dorothy Perkins at the same time and, as I was trying on my new acquisitions, I noticed that they really go well together due to the fact that the sandals are more coral than red (coral being one of the colours in the dress).

Regarding the sandals, I’m pretty pleased with my purchase: despite the chunky heel, they look quite delicate on the foot thanks to the strap over the toes being both slim and well-positioned (not too far back, that is, so as to give the toes some coverage, instead of “showcasing” them, as it sometimes happens).

I’ve only worn them around the house, but they seem pretty comfortable even though they are very high.

The metallic (pewter) leather (or whatever fabric it may be) is not very obvious on the foot (not mine, at least), so the ankle strap shouldn’t have an unflattering effect on the legs – or so I think until I see myself in a photo :).

I got them in size UK 6 – EU 39 and I’d say they are true to size – they are a little big for me (I wear UK 5,5 – EU 38,5), but the ankle/ T strap makes them feel very secure on my feet, so that definitely won’t be a problem.

The only thing I’m not so happy about is the metallic “leather” which I have a feeling isn’t in fact real leather, as I had understood from the product description. This means it will probably peel off quite fast, especially on the platform. The cuteness factor prevails however, so I think they were totally worth the money!


sandale elegante bej cu toc cui inalt si platforma din piele lacuitaSandale elegante bej cu toc cui inalt, platforma si varful decupat/ peep toe, din piele lacuita, marca Epica – 299 ron (reduse de la 599 ron) la Otter, aici/ aici. (Tocul este de culoare bordo).

Sunt disponibile si pe corai si s-ar putea sa se potriveasca si in varianta asta cu rochia, datorita nuantei de corai din ea:

sandale corai cu toc inalt si platforma din piele lacuitaSandale corai cu toc inalt si subtire, platforma si varful decupat, din piele lacuita.


Turquoise and beige leather high heel peep toe shoesModa in Pelle “Delightful” turquoise and beige leather high heel peep toe shoes – 29,95£ here (also available in black/ cream and pink/ white);

Pantofi turcoaz cu bej cu toc inalt si varful decupat – 29,95£ (aprox. 156 ron) aici (dipsonibili si in combinatiile negru/ crem si roz/ alb).

(Rochia este de fapt mai degraba nuanta asta de turcoaz, spre verde, decat nuanta din poza.
EN: The dress is closer to this shade of turquoise rather than the shade in the photo).


pantofi bej nude cu platforma toc inalt si varf ascutit din piele intoarsaPantofi bej/ nude cu platforma, toc inalt si varf ascutit din piele intoarsa – 200 ron aici sau aici (Disponibili si pe negru, galben si corai – aici).

La Ama Fashion exista si pe turcoaz:

pantofi turcoaz cu platforma toc inalt si varf ascutit din piele naturala onlinePantofi turcoaz cu platforma, toc inalt si varf ascutit, din piele naturala – 329 ron aici (disponibili si pe bej din piele intoarsa sau piele naturala si negru).

Pacat ca tocul nu este imbracat in piele, ci din plastic lucios, altfel combinatia de platforma si varf ascutit e preferata mea: varful ascutit e clar tendinta actuala (si, de fapt, etern elegant), iar platforma ii face mai comozi decat ar fi fost niste stiletto clasici.


pantofi crem bej nude cu toc inalt si subtire stiletto si varf ascutit din piele naturalaPantofi stiletto crem/ bej/ nude din piele naturala – cu toc de 9 cm, simpli – 320 ron aici (Ama Fashion) sau cu fundita din material textil – 340 ron aici. Similari aici, aici, aici, aici.

Modelul stiletto fara fundita exista si pe rosu din piele lacuita – aici –, galben, din piele naturala – aici – plus multe alte culori.

S-ar putea ca nuanta sa fie mai deschisa un pic, pentru ca intre timp au aparut poze noi, care arata asa:

Si au fost actualizati, numai bine pentru sezonul de primavara-vara, cu o varianta asimetrica, decupata pe lateral si cu fundita roz neon: super cute!:

Foarte draguti mi se par, dar cred ca era mai bine daca se opreau cu tocul la 12 cm.


Introduc si un element care nu apare in colaj – dar mi l-am cumparat intre timp si cred ca s-ar potrivi cu tinuta noastra:

EN: The next item doesn’t appear in the collage because I only discovered and bought it some time after publishing this post, but I think it would be a nice addition to the outfit:

ceas cu curea bej nude din piele fossilCeas Fossil “Georgia” cu curea bej/ nude subtire din piele naturala – 415 ron la, aici (disponibil in multe alte variante, inclusiv cu curea metalica).

Fossil “Georgia” vintage-inspired watch with slim nude/ beige leather strap – 65£ here*, available in various other versions, including metal strap ones. (*For some reason this one is a little bit different from my photo and the photo on the Fossil Website).

Imi cautam de multa vreme un ceas cu asemenea curea si asta mi se pare absolut perfect – nu numai culoarea e ideala, dar e si foarte finut asa ca o sa mearga de minune cu toate rochiile mele de vara. (Mamei mele i-a placut asa de mult, ca si-a cumparat si ea la fel :)).

Vestea cea mai buna e ca l-am cumparat in 12 rate cu Card Avantaj – deci nu numai ca sunt superincantata de achizitie, dar nici n-o s-o simt la buzunar. Me happy :)!

(P.S. Cei de la WatchShop mi s-au parut super OK si seriosi, iar ambele ceasuri au ajuns foarte repede: pe al meu l-am comandat vineri si a ajuns marti, iar mama l-a comandat joi si a ajuns vineri. In plus, tocmai mi-am primit extrasul de cont Card Avantaj, asa ca pot sa garantez ca e totul in regula cu plata in 12 rate).

EN: I’d been looking for a while now for a nude leather strap watch and this one is more than I could’ve wished for: not only is the strap the perfect colour, but because it’s so slim, the watch has a very delicate feel to it, which makes it perfect for wearing with all of my summer dresses. Not to mention the vintage vibe (20’s – inspired they say) which is right up my alley. Happy, happy, happy!

O saptamana super tuturor!

Have a great week, everyone!
