Parka dreams and studded boots

Snapping out of the holiday mood is a real bummer! I was getting used to lazing around, eating, reading and watching TV all day long but then I realized I didn’t update the blog for a few days and felt guilty. Being a responsible adult is so hard, guys! I wouldn’t know but I imagine it is! :))))

So here I am with the last two outfits I created around the green dress. Everything I’m wearing except the chain earcuffs is New Look. You can find the other two looks here!

The first is an edgier approach to an otherwise feminine get up. When I saw this asymmetric parka in the store I experimented an almost slow motion moment, romantic music and all – it’s really perfect with the hood, cool shape and all the pockets and zippers. And how about the boots that can be worn two ways: laced up all the way or rolled down revealing the rock&roll studded details?! They look great both ways.

The second outfit is all about layers with the cute stripped sweater over the dress and the long, soft  cardigan worn over all that. I trust you remember the wicked animal print pumps from last time!

I'm wearing:

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and you are really excited about the New Year’s Eve party! I know I am!

10 easy DIY ideas for Holiday wreaths (center pieces)

Only two days until Christmas are left so I thought I should squeeze a fast holyday DIY project for all of you. Pretty much everybody is in vacation mood by now so I guess you have some free time to make a beautiful wreath to decorate the door, the walls or even the Christmas table.
The ideas and materials I found are very diverse so anybody should have at least one of them just lying around the house. Let’s start!

How about some colorful globes and cute fabric?! I bet all of you have those!

Colorful thick yarn and felt can always be put to good use!!! Here’s the proof!

 Do you have some apples, pine cones, nuts, acorns, chestnuts to spare? Well, than get busy and make one of these:

Did you ever think you could use burlap sacks to make such beautiful things; this wreaths look really cool and rustic. I love them!!!

♥  Do you have some dry plants (lavender), greenery and forest fruits around (cranberries)? Then you should make something like this:

♥  You know you can use Brussels sprouts for more than food, right? Just look at this cutie!!!

♥  Go ahead and gather as many leaves as you can and string them on a wire!

How about a different way to use the Christmas lights?

♥  For all of those who have lots of cut buttons, put them to good use and make a wreath out of them!

♥  Simple greenery wreaths with white, sheer bows can look so beautiful, don’t you think so?
Happy Holydays!!!!

Event: Sun Plaza 2012 Calendar Launch

Remember how I told you that last Thursday evening was a busy but enjoyable night for me?
Well this is the second event I went to: the 2012 Sun Plaza Calendar Launch who took place at The Gang Restaurant & Lounge. The photos for the limited edition calendar (only 500 copies were released, all numbered and having a certificate of authenticity) were taken by Cristian Crisbasan who was graciously signing them for all the guests.

I arrived late but I had a good time. The Next PR girls that organized the launch (Florina Axinia, Ana Paun, Otilia Mihailov-Dumitrescu) were super nice and helpful, making me feel welcomed and providing all the information I needed. They even sent me photos from the event as I didn’t have time to snap as many as I wanted. The get together was very relaxed, the crowd super cool - I was actually sorry I couldn’t make it in time.

Florina Axinia was looking beautiful in a layered maxi length get up! Too bad I didn't take a better picture of it!
 My three favorite pictures from the calendar!  I love the retro vibes! What a surprise that is, right?:))))

I had the same outfit on (obviously), only this time you get to see the New Look red coat I was wearing over. I imagine Little Red Riding Hood was wearing something similar while crossing the woods to see her granny :)))). The huge fabulous red hood was the reason I choose it from the store. I just can’t say no to a nice fairytale detail/hint in a piece of clothing.

I also have to say taking photos in populated areas of Bucharest is the worst idea ever - unless you like being verbally abused/propositioned by sleazy construction workers type men. Never again!
