couldn't exclude the Halloween vampire makeup because, let's face it, we
all want eternal life and extraordinary beauty (that's the promise according to
Twilight and The Vampire Diaries:))))
The next section is a visual list of thebest Halloween
costumes I've seen lately! When it comes to adults Halloween costumes, I'm
obviously attracted to something creative or at least something that makes
you/me look hot without being too sluty and graphic! That being said, here is
what caught my eye this year around the World Wide Web.
you're into sexy Halloween costumes then an evil Snow White version in mustard
over the knee tights and a lace body suit is the way to go! I love the red bow
headband and huge knife as accessories. I'm also in love with this fairytale
queen mask makeup - flawless!
If you want to include
actual fashion trends into your Halloween costume try dressing up like a baroque
doll at Deadman's Ball!
Another easy and fashion forward Halloween costume that doesn't compromise your hotness is an eye goddess!
The best life sized Victor Van Dort from Burton's movie Corpse Bride (which I'm obsessed with by the way) I have ever seen!
And how about a truly original Halloween costume -dress
as Harley Quinn, Joker’s Bitch!
I don't have kids and don't plan on having any time soon, but these kids
Halloween costumes are so adorable, I couldn't help it! Kids have the best time
on Halloween when even the grown ups resort to games, candy and magic!
owl tutu dress and headband!
The most beautiful mini Little Red Riding Hood in the world and an unbearably cute ladybug baby Halloween costume!
More kids Halloween costumes - Ariel, the little mermaid and a very energetic rocket boy taking off!
Alice in Wonderland - the extra sweet variety!
My heart can't take the amount of adorable in this picture: you can't really blame the wolf for trying to eat Little Red Riding Hood if she looked like this, can you?!
It’s not Halloween yet, but I do
feel the creepy vibe – hence this Halloween inspired outfit that I put together
without actually realizing I was channeling some serious Wednesday Addams. Well,
my sister told me it’s more of a sluty sultry nun look (you know, the American
Horror Story kind of nun), but I’m going to go with Wednesday Addams for the
sake of my pristine reputation :)))).
Granted the dress is too short
for my tall frame, but it’s so damn cute with its white Peter Pan collar and
cuffs that I put it on anyway. I’m still wearing the gold bats necklace in the
picture as I’m typing this – goes really well with my very stylish and grown up teddy bears pajamas –
I will probably wear it tomorrow to work and there is a chance it’s going to
naturally attach to my skin.:))))
You might also notice the Halloween
nails – I don’t really know what I was going for, but just so you know, the red
on the tips is supposed to be blood, the yellow base I already had on and I
thought it would work.
I’m such a rule breaker
wearing white ankle boots past Labor Day, right!!! Seriously now, they are called
Astro boots – how could one resist?
The white tuxedo jacket was a last minute detail - I thought it would add a little bit of classy into the mix - not that I need much help with that being such a lady myself!:))))))))))
Let me introduce you to some Romanian
designs and fashion brands that I got the chance to see and photograph at this
event called Fashion Night Out organized last week, here, in dear, old Bucharest.
The absolute highlight of the night for
me was Fe[Male] with a collection (the first nine photos) that I deem superhero worthy. That is not to
say it’s wasn’t wearable, au contraire, my friends, I found it supremely badass
and full of original details. How cool is the unusual mix of materials: felt, neoprene,
plexiglass and actual mirror pieces with silk and soft veil?
I totally see
Wonder Women wearing them in her spare time. I also see myself rocking every
single piece – they are just amazing!
The rest of the text is in Romanian, but just known every look in the following photos (well except the last 4 photos that are actually a Remy
Holwick production - she was the American designer invited to Fashion Night Out) was designed in this part of the world!
Saptamana trecuta am fost la
Fashion Night Out unde am avut ocazia sa vad de aproape colectiile noi semnate
de Maria Marinescu, Fe[Male], Rhea Costa, Parlor, plus un designer american - Remy
Holwick - ca invitata speciala.
Evenimentul a fost undeva in
Pipera (Swan Office & Technology Park) si pe drum mi-am dat seama ca desi
carasem constincioasa aparatul cu mine, bateria era total descarcata pentru ca
il uitasem deschis peste noapte. Un inceput grozav!
Aproape ca m-am intors din
drum pentru ca ideea era sa fac fotografii si sa va povestesc aici ce s-a intamplat
cu tot cu suport vizual, dar m-am razgandit dupa ce mi-am dat seama ca am
totusi telefonul la indemana si doua prietene (Sandra&Eve) cu propriul lor aparat care
ma vor ajuta in aceste momente de grea incercare (thanks, girls)!:)
Cel mai tare mi-a placut colectia
Fe[Male] creata de Mirela Fraser. Brandul acesta este unul special si cu potential
imens pentru ca are ceva foarte rar in industria modei din Romania: o viziune
proprie si un echilibru greu de gasit intre comercial si original. Sunt haine
care provoaca o reactie, in care recunosti trenduri actuale, dar care nu seamana
neaparat cu altceva, e un mix reusit intre mass appeal si unicitate. Chiar si prin nume Fe[Male]
promite contrast si il livreaza de fiecare data.
In colectia Crepuscul l-am
vazut in amestecul de materiale neobisnuite, rigide (neopren, fetru, plexiglas
decupat geometric, bucati de oglinda taiate cu precizie) cu matasuri si voaluri
fluide. Mi-au placut siluetele accentuate, detaliile spectaculoase - totul intr-o paleta cromatica versatila: gri,
negru, violet, albastru.
Impresia cea mai starornica a
fost ca hainele Fe[Male] sunt ceea ce ar purta supereroinele in viata reala,
cea de dicolo de aventurile din filme si benzi desenate, in 2012. Sunt haine care iti dau senzatia ca
ai superputeri sau macar ceva talente iesite din comun si incredere sa le porti
ca un rock star.
This dress is proper superhero gear: amazing cosmic print with a mirror bodice! I love it so much!
The coat with the post-apocalyptic hood was beyond cool!
Another stunning coat - the details and shape are just beautiful!
Everybody needs a dress with a sequined cape attached!!! I know I do!
Peplum taken to the next level!
This dress is pure magic - love the contrast between the plexiglass covered bodice and the liquid silk skirt!
In case you've seen photos with this jacket at Paris Fashion Week (and I know you did), just know it's a Romanian design by Fe[Male].
Din restul colectiilor o sa va
arat numai ce mi-a placut in mod special.
Despre Parlor nu stiam mare
lucru, dar dupa Fashion Night Out am investigat putin si am observant ca
brandul semnat de Veronica Zaharia este foarte popular in randul vedetelor de
televiziune de la noi – mai ales pentru evenimente de gala si covor rosu - sunt cateva persoane publice (Dana Rogoz, Iulia Vantur, Simona Patruleasa, Corina Caragea, Laura Cosoi) care poarta des tinute
Nu intamplator rochiile care mi-au atras atentia sunt cele de seara - Parlor este orientat catre aceasta nisa unde
face intr-adevar o treaba excelenta.
My favorite dress from Parlor - I adore the subtle layering and delicate details!
Glamorous minimalism - very pretty!
Maria Marinescu – un nume care imi
era familiar, dar nu neaparat pe partea de moda - a fost brandul care a deschis showul.
a fost feminina si extrem de purtabila – mie mi-au placut tare de tot doua dintre
What a beautiful fabric choice - also note the contrasting Peter Pan collar and belt!
The sheer silver hart print layer over the electric blue column dress creates a very playful and feminine look. Feels like I should have these two looks in my wardrobe right now!
Rhea Costea este din nou un brand
cu trecere in randul vedetelor din Romania, ceea ce nu m-a impiedicat sa
apreciez paleta cromatica delicata, folosirea ingenioasa a aplicatiilor din
dantela si a dantelei in general. Din nou – o colectie feminina, cu multe
What a fabulous choice of color for this uber feminine look!
This dress makes sequins look super classy!
Remy Holwick a venit cu o colectie de primavara-vara
intr-un stil specific american, cu haine pe care ti le imaginezi involuntar pe
plajele si la festivalurile de muzica din California: colorate, lejere, nepretentioase,
cu influente sport si hippie.
Cel mai tare mi-a placut stilizarea tinutelor cu
accesoriile de par a la Frida Kahlo si machiajul care au adugat un aer
de prospetime colectiei.
Totally in love with the Frida Kahlo inspired headbands!
These are so very L.A!
Cool colorful pants with an exposed zipper detail - they seemed to have a great fit as well!
Fluent in pop culture and sarcasms, eccentric smartass, undecided but crafty, drama queen, loves everything beautiful, almost perfect, somehow jaded, deeply ironic, moody as hell! Based in Bucharest, Romania!
