The gingham ruffle skirt is a statement piece this season. It sits high on the waist, it is finished in a midi length perfect for dressing up with heels or with trainers. I am a high heels lover so, of course I will present this skirt with heels. As you see this skirt has a maxi drill detail on the hem. Front button fastening on the side. I love this skirt because it is my own design so of course, it is like my baby. I will soon open an etsy shop but until then I will sell my designs on Instagram.
Let’s be honest, this skirt is definitely worth to invest in. You can adapt it even in autumn with a sweater. But now it is still summer so I will show you how I worn it. I took an off-the-shoulders white top(also made by me) with a pair of mule heels. I put two chocker shoes, one that is traditional romanian and one that is black with swarovski crystals. As for sunglasses, I have some from Dolce&Gabanna that are also with a gingham pattern. I took my favorite bag this summer, a basket that I found at a thrift shop. Yes, I buy things from thrift shops too, because honestly everyone can create a look using only high-end brands. As for earrings I used some white clips.

I woke up this morning, happy that my hangover was gone. (There was a fun-fair in town.) I decided to stop waisting time this summer and go back to work. I wanted to shoot some photos for my blog for some time, so I thought today would be as good as any other day.
I had a Michael Kors skirt just lying in my drawer. I have never worn it, but I wanted to, for some time. I found at the thrift shop a black and gold belt that fitted great with it. I also put a black blouse with angel sleeves to complete the feminine “touch” of the outfit. One of my favorite color mix is: black, gold and beige so, I decided to wear a beige pair of vintage boots with square heels.
I looked in the mirror but it was too simple for my taste. My style is pretty eccentric. I thought that a lot of pearls around my neck and on my face will do the trick. I always loved pearls!! I remember hearing a story when I was little about Cleopatra drinking a dissolved pearl in wine, in order to prove Marc Anthony that she can devour the wealth of an entire nation in just one sip.
Basically, pearls symbolize wisdom acquired through experience. They are believed to attract wealth and luck as well as offer protection. They are believed to be calming and they balance one’s karma.
Quotes about pearls:
1. Pearls don’t lie on the seashore. If you want one, you must dive for it.
2. “A women needs ropes and ropes of pearls” -Coco Chanel
3. “At the edge of madness you howl diamonds and pearls” -Aberjhani
Style is a way of expressing who we are, it is an extenstion of our personality. Style is the result of our activities, the result of what we study, of what we read, of our hobbies, of places we like to travel to, of cultures and local habits we inspire from.
In my opinion, the concept “fashion style” is vanishing. Teenagers and most people do not have a fashion style anymore, everything is about comfort. My outfits are usually a bit different than what people wear (skinny jeans and t-shirt), that is the reason why yesterday for example, I received lots of mean looks and I heard things like “Who does she think she is?” Well, I did not know that you have to be a star in order to dress out of the ordinary.
I admit that when I go to school I dress casual because I do not have the time in the morning to create an outfit and a makeup. But when I go out, that changes. I have the time to work on my outfit.
In this outfit I wore a pair of Palazzo pants, a trend in the 60-70’s, together with a straight slim blazer from Trussardi and an extra wide belt. As for accesories, a black beret, a pair of colorful clips and Bottega Veneta Sunglasses.
Metamorphosis is a biological process by which an animal physically develops after birth or hatching. I think that we are still hatching until we are 18. Then we spread our wings and become this amazing butterflies. So, this friday I made a look inspired from a butterfly. I used the Sephora Eyeshadow Palette with a thin liner without a wing from “L’oreal”. For my lips I applied the NYX Ombre Lipstick in Ginger&Nutmeg. What do you think about this look?
EN: I adore february. Why? Well, first it is the month that leads to spring. You already feel that hope, that the warm months are approaching. Second af all, it is my birthday!!! And last but not least, THE OSCARS!!! Yes. At 23:30 I was in front of the TV on ProSieben watching the stars of cinematography walking on the red carpet. Of course, all the outfits were perfect, I mean behind those outfits are hundred of stylists taking care of everything. Still, I will count down my ten favorites because like every human being I have preferences.
The makeup for today hasn’t came out as expected. But what can you do? I bought the new palette from Catrice “Pulse of purism-Pure metal palette” but I was not satisfied. The colors are not pigmented. I was very pleased with my previous palette from the Catrice so I hoped this would be like it. I was wrong, the blue is not at all pigmented and you can not see it in selfies. Or in photos at all. I used an eye primer so that is not why it did not work. Still I found two products I fell in love with:
L’Oreal Paris Infallible Total Cover
NYX Ombré Lip Duo-Ginger&Nutmeg
The foundation is extraordinary, it fits me perfectly. I used many foundations before from MAC, Lancôme, Estée Lauder, Guerlain etc and none of them fit me better than this one. As for the lipstick from NYX, I was never able to make an ombré until now. Thank you NYX!
A few days ago, I went to buy some groceries and like always I ended up in DM. I wasn’t looking for something in particular, but somehow I am always leaving with new lipsticks, new palettes etc. In the store it was a huge poster with #GigiHadid, that really caught my attention. So of course, I was curious for what she promotes. I see the new palette collection from Maybelline New York and of course I bought them all… #makeupaddict. Lately, I am more in the #mood for natural makeup so I fell in love with #theblushednudes palette. When I got home I started asking questions about this palette on different makeup groups. The answers were quite negative and I felt a bit disappointed. Everyone said the colors aren’t pigmented, that it smudges etc..
I decided to try it out myself tomorrow and I have to say, I am very pleased with it. It’s not an Urban Decay palette, where your expectations are high. It’s not a high end product. When I want a nude, natural look, this palette is definitely my #go-to.
What are your opinions about the Maybelline New York palette?
Just like all the other girls on this eart, I tried to look my best for the New Year’s party. A new year was about to start and I had to have my makeup on fleek, right? Usually when it comes to makeup I never fail, however this time something just wasn’t right. I had to go so I didn’t have the time to remake it. Although I received compliments (don’t know if they were only from courtesy) but I wasn’t pleased with how it looked. I inspired from a photo where the girl had the exact form of my eyes. Trying to figure out what I did wrong, I realized the girl has blue eyes. It was the first time I noticed how much difference the eye color can make to a makeup. So, I prepared a look for all the girls there with brown eyes.
I was sitting in front of the closet and as usually I had no idea what to wear. The green velvet skirt from my mom’s new collection caught my attention. I took it with my nude tights from Falke. Then I just had to find what to wear with the skirt. Because it’s really cold I decided for a beige high neck long sleeve top fron Zara and a grey blazer from Trussardi. However, the outfit looked to simple so I matched it with a corset and a fur collar. I had one more decision to take. The toughest one. What shoes? Finally, I decided for the suede ankle boots from Max&Co.
