I heart Alberta Ferretti !

Ever since I started browsing through the fashion world I had a thing for Alberta Ferretti's designs. I love them because they're always feminine in a non cheesy way, they look very seductive, but non cheap sexy, the materials look very comfortable an the color choice is so sophisticated. It's classical elegance without using excessive black. But rather interesting use of beige, turquoise, blue, some light gold.

These collection was astonishing when looking at the sheer dresses that made the models look like they were a Shakespearean fantasy... Like an ode to the idea of women... And still wearable! Those coat are so ready-to-wear! Plus an A+ for loosing the platform!

And the fabrics are also so inspiring! A lot of faux fur, a lot of chiffon, don't you just love this combination?

It is my favorite collection yet, not because it sets some undeniable trends or it's cutting edge, but just because those clothes make me feel so goo when looking at them. Obviously, I don't afford an A.F. piece, but...a girl can only dream!....

If you're around style.com, check out her 2009 F/W RTW , it was magnificent!

What do you guys think?

Below are my favorite items of the collection

Red lips - hot or not?

You might have noticed the big amount of red lips on runways these days. They're already very present in the looks and tutorials of make up artists on youtube and the blogging world and as I see it, it's a big trend of reintroducing the classic red lip as well as the lipstick instead of lip gloss. This is a strong move over at Chanel, they're making big efforts with the new lipstick line to teach women that lipstick it's the feminine , classy, sexy way to do lips.

But do we follow make up trends like we follow clothing trends? Do you? Or do you just wear the make up that looks good on you? Is the red lip something you'll be wearing in the following autumn / winter ?

P.S. Plus what's up with the "no eyebrows" trend? That appears to be everywhere and frankly, I don't like it! Is it suppose to send some kind of cultural message about people nowadays? Will we be the no eyebrow generation in the eyes of the up comming generations ? :)))

Here are a few images from the runways that I thought were significant:

A fun Sunday outfit!

Hy, so here is my Sunday outfit, we went to another city (Tulcea) to visit the Danube Aquarium, it's a very nice museum actually, with both animals and fish from the Danube Delta and a few other places.

I didn't meant to post it at first because I don't think my outfit it's very fashionable, but rather fun instead! I love it anyway, I was feeling a bit of that Kandee (Johnson) spirit and I just went for pink!

Anyway, here are some pictures.

P.S. I feel like I need to apologize for the low posting these couple of weeks, it's because I resigned my job and I'm searching for a new one so things are not very shiny and I don't have a lot of time on my hands. But I will try to post more often, promise! :D

Fishbone jacket, my beloved pink boots, Time Out harem jeans, bag from Paris, old green sport blouse from a Romanian brand, zebra print pink dress turned into top, earrings from the beach somewhere...

Here's me inside the aquarium! Isn't this cool? You would go inside and you would feel like there's only water around you! Very claustrophobic for me, have to say...

This is such a lovely creature, it doesn't live in our sea or in the Danube, I think it lives in the Ocean, isn't it gorgeous?

Here's another one like that, from another angle, it was stuck on the window :P

And Nemo!!!!

A review of NY FW

A little oppinion on what I've seen on the catwalks these few weeks. It seems like blue is the new red (even though we did had some amazing red pieces) and nude is the new black.Don't you think? Everybody it's crazy about that electric blue and the nude, beige, earthy (autumnly...) colors are every where.There's also the print issue, that is: you either go with bold print or non at all. They're still playing with geometry a lot,a lot of interesting volums, a lot of shapes.

The tights are still hot (which is great in my oppinion!) with their little sister,the high socks. A little surprizing for me is the fact that platforms are not going anywhere in 2010, while some of the predictions were that we'll slowely go back to the kitten heel. Not for the moment, no. Dresses and skirts are still, most of the times, very short (yey!) or very long. But I think the idea is to play with texture, play with very bold colors and mix them with the nudes and the black, don't be afraid of original shapes,don't be afraid of volume and hights.

I especially liked Betsey Johnson and Lacoste. You might wonder: what do they have in common? I'll tell you what: the models smiled! Yes people, real models actually smiling on the catwalk. Don't know about you, but that is so refreshing for me when I see it! It's lovely to look at someone in fabulous clothes smiling,not looking angry like hell :))

I also loved the Naeem Khan collection. It was fabulous! The materials were so rich, so luxurious, it was like a night at the palace :D

So what else did you see as highlights on the trends? What collection did you enjoy better?
Below are a few of my favs :)

Some fun make up

So many of you know that I'm a big fan of colorful make up.I'm planning on doing a more developed post about this subject, but for the moment I'm just uploading the looks I had on on Saturday (when we went bowling - no one can suck more at bowling that I do) and on Sunday (for you know what ocassion, I don't want to write it again!)

So tell me if you like these and if you'd try them :)

I love my lashes in this picture :D

This is a 3 color make up that I never tried with black above before. Kind of looks great, ha?
Me and the B (aka Bogdan the boyfriend) on the V-day. Please excuse my hair, it's been going true a very bad phase...:))

Not another Valentine's day outfit

So this is what I wore on Friday evening, obviously not a Valentine's day outfit, but pretty pink :P

Today was fun, I enjoy this day, even if I feel I'm suffocated by all the promotions and the teddy bears and the candy....everything heart shaped !AAA!!!

I was never a very V day excited person, even if I wore in a relationship or if I weren't, but now I am so it's cool:P

Anyway, hope you guys have an awesome week to come and hope you spend today in a very fun way, no matter if you do it single, in couple, with family or friends, etc.:D

Wearing a skirt hand made by my bf's grandma for me, a Zara t-shirt, blazer gift from Spain, Jeniffer clutch and local brand shoes. I absolutely love this make up I did, the picture doesn't do it justice...

What do you guys think? :)

RIP Alexander McQueen

I just want to share my sorrow with the world of fashion. I feel something very similar to what I felt when I heard Michael (Jackson) died or when I found out about Brittany Murphy, it's so sad to see such a big talent going away...
And it's even more painful if he took his own life...Teaches us a lesson about fame, money, power, they're nothing at the end...

We can only be grateful that he shared his amazing talent with the world and that we are living in a McQueen influenced fashion world.

So the first one is the "You're a doll"award and the fact is that yesterday I was reading some blogs and saw someone that had it and I just thought it was so cool becase of the picture!

3. When I was around 12 I used to listen to Britney Spears and dance in front of the mirror. In high school I used to listen to HIM and not dance at all :))
4. I am very afraid of any desseases. If I hear about something I will pray not to have it. Guess I'm a hypochondriac.
5. I haven't ride a roller coaster and I will never ride one for as long as I live!
6. I often look in the mirror and say out loud: "God, I'm so beautiful!" :))
