Rochie cu spatele gol si guler Peter Pan/ Cut out back stripe dress with Peter Pan collar: Asos (o rochie care are acelasi design, dar este din poliester, iar a mea din bumbac, poate fi inca gasita aici/ the same design but in a different colour, pattern and material – polyester instead of cotton – can still be found here)
Sandale nude de piele cu talpa ortopedica/ Leather wedge sandals (old): Joy Wendel – le am de cativa ani, cand brand-ul a existat si in Romania

Inel din sticla de Murano/ Red Murano glass ring – din Venetia/ from Venice

Poate ati recunoscut rochia, este exact acelasi model ca cea rosie din postul The Red Dress. Asta pentru ca atunci cand imi place ceva foarte mult, mi-l cumpar in mai multe culori daca exista (uneori si daca nu ma pot hotari intre culori mi se intampla sa cumpar obiectul – vestimentar de obicei – respectiv in mai multe variante. Pentru ca sunt o femeie puternica, care vrea sa traiasca fara regrete :D).

Ca si cea cu buline (de aici), rochia este la prima ei iesire in lume, fiind una din achizitiile mele favorite de la reducerile din toamna. (Apropo de reduceri, aplicabil in cazul rochiilor si fustelor: desigur, se intampla sa nu mai gasesc marimea mea, dar de foarte multe ori imi cumpar o marime mai mare si apoi o stramtez la croitor. Sau invers, ceva prea stramt a fost transformat – uneori necesitand ceva mai multa ingeniozitate – in ceva care sa imi vina bine).

Mi s-a parut ca atat rochia cat si geanta au un aer retro, ceea ce mi-a dat ideea sa postez o parte din poze in varianta alb-negru si anii 60. In orice caz, ma bucur ca am gasit o utilitate pentru geanta, pe care, desi o am de cativa ani, marturisesc ca nu am folosit-o niciodata pana acum, nefiind prea practica (mie imi plac gentile MARI, in care pot sa indes cel putin un kilogram de chestii absolut necesare :D).

Maybe you’ve recognized the dress, it’s exactly the same design as the one in The Red Dress post. That’s because when I really like something (shall we say… a dress), I tend to buy it in more than one colour if available. (I sometimes do the same thing when I can’t decide between colours. Because I am a strong woman, who wants to live with no regrets :D).

Just as the polka dot dress (featured here), this striped beauty first stepped out into the world on the occasion of this photo session, as it’s one of my most treasured buys from this autumn’s Asos sales.

As I found that both the dress and the bag have a certain retro vibe, I thought I’d post some of the photos in black and white and vintage 60’s. Anyway I’m really pleased with myself that I’ve finally managed to get some use out of that wooden bag: although I’ve had it for several years, I’ve never worn it because I don’t find it very practical – and I doubt I’ll be wearing it in “real life” any time soon (I like BIG bags, bags in which you can stuff at least 1 kg of absolutely vital things :D).

Bird Print Dress

Iubesc rochiile de matase! Scurte, midi, lungi, nu conteaza, de matase sa fie. Iar cele de la brandul englezesc Warehouse imi plac in mod deosebit: matasea este de buna calitate, sunt frumos croite si, o mare bila alba din punctul meu de vedere, sunt foarte comode pentru ca majoritatea au elastic in talie (nu cred ca as putea purta ceva – oricat de frumos ar fi – daca m-ar face sa imi urasc viata si nu m-as putea misca in voie! Confortul este sus pe lista mea de prioritati.)
Imi plac si mai mult cand sunt la reducere (pentru ca Warehouse este un brand high street mai scump), insa deocamdata sunt fericita ca au inceput sa livreze in Romania (pana de curand brandul era disponibil la noi doar prin Asos.com).

Rochia din post este una dintre preferatele mele datorita aerului de eleganta retro. O am de anul trecut si am purtat-o destul de mult la serviciu, dar cred ca este suficient de versatila incat sa poata functiona cu succes si in alte circumstante (ca rochie de cocktail de exemplu).
Anul acesta a aparut si in varianta albastra. Su-per-ba! Simt ca rochia rosie are nevoie de un suflet pereche :)….

Pozele au fost facute la Bon Bon Salon & Boutique. Asa cum indica si numele, Bon Bon este o combinatie foarte draguta de salon de infrumusetare si boutique cu haine si accesorii, asa ca aici, in timp ce stai cu parul pe bigudiuri sau astepti sa actioneze vopseaua de par, poti sa iti petreci timpul intr-un mod foarte placut: la shopping!

Le multumesc din suflet prietenelor mele de la Bon Bon pentru ajutor (si pentru ca m-au suportat cateva ore bune sa le blochez accesul in diverse parti ale salonului in timp ce ele incercau sa isi vada de treaba)!

Mai multe poze rezultate in urma acestui shooting in posturile viitoare!

EN: I just loooove silk dresses! Short, midi, long, it doesn’t matter, I like them all! And I especially like UK brand’s Warehouse silk dresses: it’s good quality silk, they are are flattering and, most importantly, they are very comfortable – due to the fact that most of them have an elasticized back (and comfort is high up on my priorities list – I don’t think that I could wear something, no matter how beautiful, if I couldn’t move in it and it made me hate my life!).

The dress that I’m wearing in this post is one of my favourite Warehouse dresses because it has a retro elegance feel to it. I’ve had it since last year and I’ve worn it several times for work, but I think that the dress is versatile enough to wear in other circumstances as well (as a cocktail dress for example).
This year Warehouse have launched the blue version of the dress. GORGEOUS! And I have a feeling that the red dress is in need of a soul mate :)….
