The stuff of fairytales: flower crown, full skirt, fur and rings

I know everybody is inspired by somebody, inspiration is what drives us all. In life inspirational people are called heroes, in fashion they are called style icons.
Is not that you want to dress exactly like them, it’s just that you like what you see, something about their style is different, original and fresh and gives you all sort of ideas.

So when the guys over at DivaHair asked me to be part of this competition where a couple of Romanian fashion bloggers have to post an outfit inspired by a fashion icon of their choosing, I said why not?


I guess my outfit was unconsciously inspired by Ulyana Sergeenko as I didn’t even know about the contest when I took the photos.
The reason I love this Russian photographer/socialite turned fashion designer is that she doesn’t look like anybody else except maybe some past royalty who had to travel back in time an update her look a little bit. Her outfits are out of this world feminine, it’s all about maxi dress or swing skirts, defined waists, majestic coats, high heels and a lot of unusual hair accessories, scarves, tiaras and hats.


The contest is sponsored by DailyBrands, an online store where you can buy clothes and accessories for both men and women from brands such as: Custo Barcelona, Guess, CK, Diesel, Moschino, Dolce & Gabbana at bargain prices, especially when they have a seasonal sale.
I'll make sure and let you know when the voting begins!:))))


My get up may not be something girls born in the last three decades would wear, but it’s totally me – romanesque over the top daywear with lots of jewelry :))).
I just have to stop reading fantasy novels which are basically fairytales for adults or I might as well say my inspiration for the outfit is a mix of Jon Snow and Ulyana Sergeenko. OMG!!!! I’m the fashion love child of these two!!!!



The romantic roses and crosses flower crown I’m wearing is handmade by me and part of the cool stuff I made recently. Make sure and visit my Etsy Store to see more of my handy work.

I'm wearing
dress,  faux fur collar/rochie, guler blana: vintage
leather jacket/geaca: H&M
tiger brooch/bosa: random brand
rings/inele: random brand and Forever 21
purse, belt, watch/geanta, curea, ceas: vintage
shoes/botine: BB Up
Russian princess red roses and crosses flower crown: Alice&Sara (handmade by me)
