Best of

Hi ! I am so excited, today marks my 1st year anniversary for posting outfits on my blog, so, I will take you down memory lane and show you my absolute favorite looks. Before I started showcasing my personal style, I've struggled to find my blogger's voice.

I could tell you that I have always had a big interest in fashion and clothes, but I would be lying. The truth is that I started caring about my appearance in college.  I've followed school dress codes all of my life and experimenting with my style was out of the question back then. I felt trapped because I wasn't able to express my creativity and it wasn't until 3 years ago that I've let my suppressed personality out. 

I've come to realize that I have a deep affection for bright colors and that I love mixing different patterns and prints. So, I wore everything that I liked. People were staring at me, laughing behind my back, saying how ridiculous I look in those outfits. It wasn't a smooth ride at all, but as time went by, I began to ignore them and dress according to my personality.

At one point I wondered if others experienced the things I have and that's when I started posting my looks. If others saw me embracing my style, maybe they would do the same. You don't have to be afraid of standing out from the crowd and I hope that, through my blog, I can give you strength to be yourselves.

P.S. I have some exciting news to share with you and a new hairstyle to show you.  But you will have to wait till Saturday, so, stay tuned !

Army Jacket

Hi. I've never been a fan of the army trend, but lately, it has begun to grow on me. I bought this Vero Moda army jacket a couple of days ago because I thought it had some potential.  
 I knew that by wearing the right accessories, I can make this army trend work for me. 

That wasn't the only item that caught my eye while I was shopping at Vero Moda, these printed harem pants are my newest addiction. I just love the fabric and they are really comfy. 

I know there are a lot of people out there ( mostly men ) that absolutely hate this type of pants, but I say life it's too short to pay attention to others' complaints. I am done with clothing restrictions, I suggest you do the same. If I may quote William Wallace here "Freedom !!! "

I've tried to get out of my comfort zone a little with this look, not sure if I've pulled it off or not.
What do you think?

Double Breasted Coat

Hi. I will be as brief as possible today, hope you don't mind. I've had a rough week and I don't want to ruin your mood with my depressing post.
Why don't I remind you about the Blogger Friends group I've started on Facebook ? We've recently reached 100 members and we hope to expand our family. You can join us anytime, just say the word.  Click here  to join.

( I am wearing a double-breasted coat from Mango, a brown vest and a pencil skirt from Only, floral boots from Topshop and a knitted snood. )

Stripped skirt

Hi. Seems like the whining from last post paid off because the last couple of days were warm and sunny. Spring came to its senses, hallelujah ! I had to take advantage of the magnificent weather, so, I went to a Vintage fair this weekend and I met some of my favorite Romanian bloggers . 

You can see some pictures of me and the girls from The Hearabouts  at the end of my post. Thank you Sandra and Eve for a very nice afternoon, I had a lot of fun with you two. Also, I want to give a shout-out to Ioana, Alice and Nookie, the other fabulous bloggers that attended the fair yesterday.
I wore a beige stripped skirt from Vero Moda, my floral print cardigan and the infamous " Peter Pan boots".  

P.S. Many, many thanks to Angie from Papillon Chouette for featuring me on her blog and for interviewing me. 
It was really the nicest thing anyone has done for me since I've started blogging, so, I would appreciate it if you would check it out and read it. She has put a lot of effort into writing that post. You can read the interview with me here

Pink blazer

Guess who's back? Back again? Winter is back, tell a friend. Hi guys, sorry for the delay in posting on my blog but I've been on strike against low temperatures. 
My demands are simple: I want snowdrops, not snow. I want what's rightfully ours, it's March 5th already and no signs of spring here.
So, who's with me? Let us march against this schizophrenic weather. 

Anyway, forget about that. Today should be a day of celebration. Celebrate what, you ask?  
My 100th post of course. I've outdone myself, what can I say?. I never thought anyone would be interested in my wacky style and that my posts will go unnoticed.
But I was wrong...The support you've shown me throughout this year was amazing. Your feedback  was the one that pushed me forward and motivated me to carry on with my work.
 I've received almost 2000 comments on my blog, all wonderful, positive thoughts. It's really overwhelming. ...Words can't express my gratitude. Thank you for being here for me !

 Ok, before I get all teary-eyed, I should give you some details about my latest acquisition. My pink blazer from Vero Moda. Isn't it a beauty? I love its shoulder pads and the paisley print. Did I mention it's pink? What more can I ask for...
