Vintage pieces

I love clothes, vintage too if they match my style!

My outfit in the next pictures it is 100%vintage.

The central piece is my old jumper from highschool, when I was around 17 years old. My mom made it for me and this is why it is one of my favorite of all time! Because it is very warm I can wear it only when I go in an extremely cold place, like the mountains, where I spent my Christmas holiday with my family.

I love the pattern and the details and I still remember mom working hard in order to make it perfect for me!

This next piece is more vintage than my jumper, because it used to be my mom`s. This is the shearling coat! I`ve always wanted to wear this beauty. So when I was in the 10th  grade, If I remember right, mom decided that it was time to give it to me and i was the happiest girl! For me it`s stylish, feminine and it will never go out of style:)

The scarf is from my mom`s wardrobe and the boots are a present from my boyfriend for last Christmas.

The setting is also vintage, which was a pure coincidence: an old and extremely colorful vintage car and a pretty cozy hobbit like little house.

In the end I just want to say a special „Thank you„ to mom for having made this wonderful jumper and for having the patience to take this pics for me on a freezing day:)

Love,

and …… buy less clothes ? 🙂

And here are some pics from New Year`s Eve.

What I wore:

old ankle boots from Zara

old cardigan

and my long awaited navy sequined dress from http://www.asos.com, which has quickly become one of my favorite dresses.

I can`t wait to get the chance to wear it again! I felt so good in it.

I thought it was feminine and sexy.

Blue Christmas

So the holidays are nearly over…we can start typing again:)

My first post in 2015 is about Christmas, that I spent with my family in the mountains. Unfortunately we were not lucky enough to have snow, but the festive vibe was still on!

Christmas is a holiday that should be spent among the family and dear ones. If you have them, the rest is just details which do not matter anymore. Joy, love, warm, serenity was what I felt during my Christmas escape to my parents` and it was exactly what I needed!

Our location was in the mountains, in a very special and lovely place. There was so much impressive nature surrounding us, that it would have been a shame not to show you some pictures.

Here it is!

What I wore on the 25th of Christmas: jumper and leggings from New Yorker, a winter jacket from Villa and my mom`s old leather boots which are extremely comfortable and warm!

I got the stuff from New Yorker on sale and this jumper has quickly become one of my favorites:)

In my next post I will show you how we partied on NYE!

Letter to Santa

It`s nearly here …. only 8 days left till Christmas, the most wonderful time of the year.

I love Christmas because of its festive vibe. The city lights, the tree ornaments, the cinnamon and orange flavors that fill the house while you unwrap gifts on a snowy and chilly Christmas morning.

Oh…and let`s not forget watching Christmas movies every night. This activity should be a tradition for all families 🙂 And speaking of Christmas movies, my favorite is The Holiday. Jude Law with his unique British accent, the English countryside in winter time, Cameron Diaz`s fashionable outfits and the romantic love story, make it my all time number one!!

Wishlists…everyone must have one these days.

I present you mine!

Fashion+Alps=Chanel

Last week, in the exact day that the VS Fashion show took place in London, Karl Lagerfeld presented his Métiers d’Art collection in an 18th century castle in Austria, more exactly, in Schloss Leopoldskron.

My first impression when seeing the pictures, was that the atmosphere of the setting was extremely cozy, warm, perfect for a snowy winter in the mountains.

The pieces of the collection were lovely and special: coats, capes, knits, two pieces suits and some delicate evening dresses. All of them really made me smile and dream of a world in which, opulence meets good taste, women always wear beautiful clothing and know how to accessorize an outfit and where, less is more is just an old cliché, because, if you add some personal style and a bit of taste, the proper word for it turns into “luxurious”!

Keeping the Chanel personal and unique touches and color frames, Lagerfeld added some new alpine elements.

I truly loved the mix of fabric, from knits to chiffon, lace, tweed, cashmere, satin, all complemented by  detailed embroideries and fine jewellery.

Oh….and the hats….true works of art!!

Here are my favorites:

_A2X1518
Love the color, the Victorian neck, embellishments
_A2X2505
How extremely stunning is this ?
_A2X2239
White is for winter, right?

_A2X2321

_A2X1599
Great color
_A2X1577
What an accessory! 🙂
_A2X1559
You need statement necklaces when in an Austrian castle, right?
_A2X2203
Subtle piece
_A2X3006
In love with the grey coat!
_A2X1642
Opulence
_A2X2276
Winter fairy

And the occasion wear that I chose:

_A2X3150 _A2X3522 _A2X3609 _A2X3624

It was a real Métiers d’Art and a true enchantment for the eye. I`d love to wear them all!

Santa be good!

Love,

Călina

Folk embroidery

Here, in Romania this autumn has been one of the best ever. The temperatures are so nice. We have loads of sunny days and this can only make me feel happy.

I love wearing long sleeved dresses in fall and this one, from ASOS is my favourite, lately.

I bought it online and I was extremely pleased to see that the fabric is warmer than I thought.

I am not a fan of black but I got this one because of the special folk embroidery which make it so different and unique.

I wore it twice already and got loads of compliments!

I am also wearing my favorite bag from ASOS too, but I`ll show you this one in a further post.

Green love

For I don`t know which reason, I love green, dark green in the cold season.

Browsing around, I spotted some great choices on http://www.dorothyperkins.com and http://www.riverisland.com

Here they are:

a sequin skirt or dress is always a good option for a festive day or partywear

07249411_large75101019_large

14556911_large

And the must have accessory this season….say hello to the lovely green fedora hat! I love these hats. They remind me of Downton Abbeyy and Lady Mary:) Yes, I am a huge fan and I am so sad that today is the last episode of this season! It will be long till next autumn 😦

659973_main

Accessories also mean bags….every lady loves a new bag. Here are my fav` green ones:

Choice of knits

As previously mentioned I am a knit lover!

This post is all about jumpers, cardigans and knitted dresses.

My first choice is from http://www.riverisland.com (by the way they have free worldwide delivery this weekend!!)

httpwww.riverisland.comwomenknitwearjumpersNavy-bow-print-contrast-collar-jumper-656742
Paired with a midi skirt and some heels, this would definitely look chic!
httpwww.riverisland.comwomenknitwearjumpersBlack-denim-collar-jumper-656744
Loved this 2 in 1 piece that goes perfectly with a pair of skinny jeans, short boots and a fedora hat!

From http://www.dorothyperkins.com I really liked these ones because of the warm pastel colors and the fluffy texture.

httpwww.dorothyperkins.comendpukproductclothing-203535knitwear-203563heather-pom-pom-jumper-3236296bi=121&ps=20This fall, I also love coatigans….a warmer and a longer cardigan that we can wear as a jacket under a shirt, a dress or a light top. I really loved this one, from http://www.missselfridge.com, mainly because it comes with a fur collar.

Also, on the same online store I found these embellished beauties that took my breath away. I think this kind of jumpers are an extremely great investment because, due to the ornaments, you don`t have to wear too much jewellery. They already have it.

Enjoy your shopping!

Welcome autumn!

I like autumn!

Why?

Well, I can think of various reasons. First of all I love wearing knits, tights, boots, scarves and warm pijamas!

I like my knits warm, fluffy, with high neck.

Since I was a little girl, my mom used to knit lovely pieces for me: jumpers, hats or gloves. As I grew older I realized that I began to truly love these, during the cold season. So, naturally, I began to buy knitted clothing and each year in September, I get excited, thinking, that the time to wear them has finally come:)

I feel extremely comfortable in knitted dresses paired with large hats and fur vests.

Wool, angora, mohair, cashmere,…whether they come as a sweater, a cardigan, a dress or an accessory….I can wear them all.

10711725_10152277170677143_1973367892_n

Walking on a carpet of colored leaves with the warm sun in my hair, wearing my favorite knit and having a hot chocolate with my best friends it`s a true blast, a perfect autumn day.

10370790_10152277173872143_976776248_n

I don`t need too much during autumn. Snuggling under a warm blanket with a cup of hot tea and watching some of my favorite TV shows….. can make my evening perfect!

10446357_10152277175667143_361408426_n

This is why, I welcome you, dear autumn! Be my friend this year and let`s have some fun together!
