There's nothing better than a break...

video

O perioada haotica, presarata cu o multitudine de activitati, unele frumoase, altele mai putin placute, este in cel mai fericit caz urmata de o "cabana". In ultima perioada nu am mai gasit timp pentru astfel de iesiri si devine din ce in ce mai greu sa ne strangem cu totii pentru a sarbatori simplul fapt ca suntem tineri si cu pofta de viata. Totusi dupa o asteptare indelungata, timp in care am fost cu totii ocupati cu job-urile sau cu hobby-urile (vezi blog-ul), am reusit sa ne adunam o buna parte din "familie" si sa parasim orasul, grijile si gandurile, urmand sa ne petrecem weekend-ul intr-o maniera chill, departe de stres, intr-un cadru montan feeric. Desi suntem aproape de casa, tot ce tine de viata cotidiana a disparut complet si ne delectam cu traditiile de cabana. 

Va doresc un weekend minunat...si sper ca aveti timp de o iesire in natura.

Usually after a chaotic period, mixed with work and other daily activities, one manages to squeeze in an outing. Let go of your busy schedule and escape the city to a magical scene, preferably in the mountains. We've managed to do this, and to gather a big part of the "family" in order to celebrate our youth and our love for life. We've all been busy with our jobs, and our hobbies (eg. this blog) and now we're ready to party and feel free. Even though we're close to home, we succeeded in leaving our worries and the stress behind and now we can enjoy this beautiful scene and this gorgeous view. 

I hope you a have a wonderful weekend... in a beautiful place.

Vetements: 'It's ugly, that's why we like it!'

"It's ugly, that's why we like it" deviza designer-ului, care impreuna cu cativa prieteni a pus bazele proiectului Vetements, ce urma sa devina un brand veritabil. Demna Gvasalia este un designer de origine georgiana, care a detinut pozitii importante la Maison Martin Margiela, Louis Vuitton, iar acum este director de creatie la Balenciaga

Vetements este un brand fresh, bazat pe obiecte oversized, inspirat de articole sport, precum tricouri sau hanorace. Chiar daca are un aer trashy, brut, ce nu se incadreaza in tendintele generice, Vetements reuseste sa suprinda si sa castige popularitate. Moda in zilele noastre evolueaza in mai multe directii concomitent, generand piete pentru orice produs si acceptand diverse stiluri. Femeia de astazi nu trebuie sa se ghideze dupa un tipar, nu este nevoita sa accepte un singur gen ca sa se remarce, ci este incurajata sa experimenteze, sa adopte un stil cameleon. Pentru latura mai putin femnina, mai dura, Vetements relanseaza conceptul sport la un nivel excesiv si creeaza un look de zi atipic, menit sa atraga atentia.

Elementele ce stau la baza acestui brand se rezuma la hanorace oversized, tricouri cu print-uri, camasi supradimensionate cu croi neobisnuit, cizme over the knee. Chiar daca toate piesele tind sa fie supradimensionate si un mix ar parea incredibil de excentric, cumva combinatia arata traznet, iar look-ul in sine emana atitudine. Materialele  predominant folosite in creatiile Vetements sunt polyester si nylon, pastrand alura "cool" a creatiilor.

"It's ugly, that's why we like it", said the co-founder of the Vetements project, that became a high end brand. Demna Gvasalia is a designer from Georgia, who worked for Maison Martin Margiela, Louis Vuitton and now he's landed a new amazing job, as a creative director for Balenciaga. 

Vetements is  a fresh brand, based on oversized objects, inspired by sportswear, mainly by T-shirts and hoodies. Even though it seems trashy, unconventional, manly and it doesn't seem to fit the "ordinary" trends, Vetements managed to gain a lot of popularity. Fashion, nowadays, evolves on a lot of different paths, at the same time, constantly creating new markets for new, original products. The modern day woman does not need to pick a "style", she can choose to be any type of woman she wants. She can be a lady today, a goth tomorrow and whatever she likes, just like a fashion cameleon. Fashion encourages us to experiment, to find ourselves and to wear whatever makes us feel comfortable and sexy. 

The main pieces of the Vetements brand are: oversized hoodies, t-shirts with numerous prints, oversized, cropped shirts, over the knee boots. Even though all the items seem to be oversized and the mix seems surreal, the combo is actually dope. The main fabrics are nylon and polyester, keeping the "cool" of the items.

Street style according to Kendall Jenner

Vreau sa incep prin a preciza raspicat ca nu sunt o fana a clanului Kardashian-Jenner, insa trebuie sa recunoastem ca de-a lungul timpului, stilul lor vestimentar a avut o evolutie colosala. Kendall Jenner, la numai 20 de ani a reusit sa bifeze cateva realizari fenomenale. Pe langa faptul ca este una dintre cele mai cautate modele la ora actuala, una dintre muzele lui Olivier Roustening, are si un street style ireprosabil, demn de studiat. Admirandu-i stilul vestimentar, printre colectiile de poze Vogue si Glamour am decis sa recreez unele dintre cele mai reusite tinute ale acesteia pentru sezonul ce urmeaza. Astfel, putem imprumuta cateva dintre combinatiile ei de succes, la preturi muuult mai accesibile. Tinutele ei sunt degajate, lejere si foarte bine legate, perfecte pentru primavara si extrem de comode!

I am not a fan of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, but I have to admit their fashion sense has evolved amazingly. Kendall Jenner, aged 20, managed to become one of the most wanted models, a muse for Olivier Roustening and has an amazing street style. While admiring her outfits on the Vogue and Glamour archives I thought about sharing some of them with you, and also suggest some more affordable items, inspired by her street style. 

Study Case no. 1

Primul exemplu de street style imaculat, compus dintr-o maleta intr-o nuanta mustar si pantaloni cu talie inalta. Ochelarii ii dau un aer foarte classy, iar accesoriile completeaza perfect tinuta. Am reconstituit aest outfit de succes folosind articole exclusiv H&M.


The first example of a perfect street syle outfit, made of a turtleneck shirt, a pair of white high waisted jeans, cool glasses for a chic touch and perfectly matched accessories. I managed to rebuild the outfit, using H&M items.

Study Case no. 2

Pantalonii culottes sunt foarte in tendinte acum si pe buna dreptate, sunt foarte lejeri si foarte chic in acelasi timp. Combinatia de alb si roz discret este impecabila si denota naturalete. Acest outfit este dovada ca si piese precum pantalonii culottes se combina exceptional cu o pereche de tenisi.

A proof of efortless fashion, that looks amazing. The powder pink/white combo is simply perfect and the accesories manage to create an outstanding street style outfit, meant to set you appart.

Study Case no. 3

Ultima tinuta studiata si reconstruita este una all black, executata perfect. Bluza cu maneci evazate este foarte cool, in special in combinatia cu pantalonii mulati si pantofii din piele lacuita. Per ansamblu confera un aspect degajat, insa foarte bine planificat. Alegerea accesoriilor este una oportuna, ochelarii de soare si gentuta neagra, completeaza look-ul misterios si pastreaza linia simpla  si clara a outfit-ului.

The last "studied" outfit is made up of all black items. I find this outfit cool and the combo of the flared sleeve shirt with the fitted black pants and the  leather shoes, brilliant. I also admired the fact that she kept it simple and sleek, keeping only 2 accessories, the tiny black bag and the cool sunglasses. Thumbs up!

Is it spring yet?

Pana ne decidem daca vine sau nu primavara, trebuie sa fim mereu pregatite pentru orice posibila schimbare, pe parcursul zilei. Asa ca pana nu e clar, am hotarat sa compun tinute neutre, ce se pot adapta cu usurinta la o scadere brusca a temperaturii sau la o bine meritata zi cu soare. Tot in aceeasi linie, neutra am ales si culorile. Inceputul de primavara este mereu modest, discret, putin soare, o aparitie timida si treptata a verdetii, asa ca nuantele de gri se potrivesc perfect cu acest moment de 'tranzitie'. Am ales sa 'asezonez' tinuta cu noile mele achizitii, de care sunt foarte incantata. Noua mea gentuta este perfecta pentru o tinuta casual, si am avut norocul sa dau peste o oferta foarte buna, in stilul doua la pret de una, asa ca m-am ales cu doua noi IT bags. Gentutele Venti Concept Store sunt disponibile intr-o gama vasta de culori, care mai de care mai delicioasa. Am optat cu greu pentru nuanta cool de gri si pentru o nuanta superba de navy blue. 

A doua achizitie: pantofii smart casual in aceeasi nuanta de gri, i-am gasit la super promotia de la Stonecreek. Pe langa faptul ca sunt foarte comozi, au si o talpa foarte chic si sunt usor de asortat la o gramada de tinute. Abia astept sa vad cum se potrivesc cu pantalonii cullottes si cu fustele creion. Dupa cum observati am ales sa pastrez jacheta vintage si jeansii de la tinuta anterioara, tocmai pentru a demonstra versatilitatea acestora. Imi place foarte mult 'trench-ul' de piele si am doar o perioada limitata pe an, cand il pot purta. Incerc sa-l protejez, impotriva precipitatiilor de orice tip, iar o data ce se instaureaza primavara propriu zisa, trec la jachete mai subtiri. Asa ca, profit acum si creez tinute in jurul sau! 

Ce parere aveti de noile achizitii?

Until we can decide whether the spring is coming or not, we have to be prepared for any type of weather scenario. So, until it is clearly spring I've decided to create outfits that can easily adapt to any possible change, whether the temperature drops or the sun decides to stick around and give us a spring well deserved preview. I also chose neutral colours, for this transition period. I'm keeping my rose quartz and serenity blue items for the real spring, and bring out my neutrals for this period. How do you like my new entries? I just bought two for one Venti Concept Store bags, that I totally fell in love with. They are tiny and cute, and gave me a hard time decididing which colours to pick. I went for this cool grey and for the navy blue. 

Second new item: smart casual shoes, in a gorgeous shade of gray. I found them at Stonecreek, and besides the fact that they are amazingly comfortable, they have a cool platform, they also extremely easy to wear. I can play mix & match, and can't wait to wear them with cullottes pants and pencil skirts. I keep wearing my leather coat, because I only have a couple of weeks left, cause spring will soon kick in and bring a beautiful weather and sunny days, and I will have to switch to other jackets. 

Do you like my new entries?
