Raquette
A new fashion project conceived by my sister and I.Details on: http://thewalkingskirts.blogspot.com/



Despre Street Style
Am decis astăzi să scriu despre street style deoarece acest mărunţiş, de fapt, a devenit un adevărat fenomen de ceva timp. Aşadar, pe parsursul săptămînilor modei, atenţia maximă a reprezentanţilor mass-media nu mai este focusată atît pe design-eri şi colecţiile lor, cît pe street style. Aceste 5 minute cît le faci din maşină/taxi pînă în încăperea prezentării de modă, devenite în timp ore, s-au transformat în adevărate evenimente mondene cu doldora fotografi, la care mai toti participanţii au ca obiectiv să se evidenţieze din mulţime. Păcat doar că acest obiectiv devine atît de obsesiv, încît oaspeţii prezentării deseori nu mai gîndesc limpede şi realizează fail peste fail în materie de modă. Iar în timp ce urmăresc să iasă în evidenţă, ei nu reuşesc decît să arate de-a dreptu' ridicol prin combinatii neinspirate, accesorii de prost-gust şi elemente mega-extravagante sau chiar ciudate de tot.De ce să nu optezi în schimb pentru o ţinută elegantă sau cel puţin clasică, şi nu una absurdă? O alegere fără şanse de eşec.De exemplu, nu pot şi nu cred c-o voi înţelege vreodată pe această "regină" a street style-ului la show-urile de modă, Anna Dello Russo, care, înţeleg "doesn't want to be cool, wants to be fashion", dar asta nu înseamnă că la vîrsta care o are (49) poate să-şi permită să poarte orice. Deci, reuşeste, exagerînd să şocheze de fiecare dată, dar nu intotdeauna plăcut. Cred că are o nevoie acută de sugestii referitoare la măsură, stil şi gust estetic, care sunt un must pentru a fi luate în consideraţie de către un Editor-at-large al Vogue Japan totuşi. Apropo o găsiţi aici. Atenţie! Nu se recomandă persoanelor slabe de inimă sau uşor influenţabile în aspect fashion.

Am selectat mai jos nişte imagini din mai toate săptămînile modei recente cu outfit-uri reuşite şi nu prea. Deja decideţi Voi.Aşa DA!

Miu Miu, Vintage & Jane Eyre
Pur si simplu nu am putut sa trec cu vederea acest formidabil pictorial cu iz vintage si detalii extravagante. Anume frumoasa Mia Wasikowska, celebra pentru rolul Jane Eyre, a reusit sa exprime incantator maximalismul Miu Miu pentru sezonul cald 2012 fara a parea falsa. Este, de fapt, un maximalism din alea aristocratice cu o acuratete delicata si fara elemente dezgustatoare. Iar florile ajustate perfect in coafura sunt accesoriile care completeaza look-ul cu esente romantice.Un inceput frumos de primavara.Miu Miu Spring-Summer 2012 Ad Campaign

Inga Luca - a Charming Voice


Hey guys! I just wanted to let you know about my lovely friend with a stupendous voice and a brilliant musical future, Inga Luca. Her talent is surprising me everyday and I really believe she will become a famous singer.Inga is an ordinary 18 years old kid with an extraordinary power of will and a lot of positive energy. She inspires anyone she talks with and has a great attitude towards life. Singing is what she enjoys doing most of all in this life. She has a special relationship with photography as well. In another words, Inga is an artistic person. Inga is actively involving in her high-school and local musical contests, being appreciated and obtaining great prizes everytime, but I think her time is still to come...We've been working on a band project for some months together with some friends and we already have our own songs, but for now enjoy some personalised covers of great songs.Like us on Facebook : Inga Luca & BandListen on Youtube: Inga Luca MusicEnjoy and share!

Stella McCartney moments
Stella McCartney. Does she need any description? Not, for sure! We all know she's simply gorgeous.The fact that she doesn't use in her designs any leather or fur, promoting a ''no-animal'' policy among fashion makes her worthy of great admiration and respect. She showed everyone that it is possible to be fashionable without the death of animals for the sake of the clothes we buy. Fur and leather clothing items are in great demand now, being in top among fashionistas. And this is a sad thing which should sensitize us.I particularly like her creations because of the original look they posses. Stella knows perfectly how to handle the materials, how to play with dots and colors and has a special attitude towards prints. As a proof of her great sense of style may serve some of the best looks, in my opinion, I selected below.How do you think?isisloveforever:  Sara Sampaio in a Garden Party for Vogue India

Mulberry S/S 2012
Mulberry has hit the beach for Spring Summer 2012, piling into retro caravans for a Seventies summer of fun! Inspired by the great British seaside – piers, arcades, donkey rides and sticks of rock – the new season is a riot of colour, classic British summers and camping cool!

















Chic Shoes by Louis Vuitton
Dolls are historically affiliated with the glamorous world of fashion and at Louis Vuitton today the shoe style director continues to gather inspiration from them."Step back in time to 1944, following World War II when due to a shortage of resources, the Haute Couture fashion houses of Paris created the Thêatre de la Mode. Imagine a spectacle of fashion in miniature, designed specifically for dolls but with all the exquisite detail and perfection of the regular collections.""Similarly, the shoe department at Louis Vuitton is inextricably connected to the sphere of dolls. Exactly the same workshop in Fiesso d'Artico, Italy, where the Louis Vuitton shoe collections are created is entrusted with the task of fabricating the parallel miniature versions for Fabrizio Viti’s private doll collection. The attention to detail is striking and in this short stop motion animation, his dolls and shoes come to life in another inspiring spectacle."Fashion dolls have been a central inspiration for Fabrizio Viti, Louis Vuitton's shoe style director. They stimulate his imagination just as art, photography and old movies. He has been collecting dolls since he was three years old and as a result, today he has a collection with around 500 pieces.Dive into his colourful universe with this stop motion film produced by New Now, Louis Vuitton's online magazine.source: http://www.louisvuitton.eu 

MILAN FW. Blumarine
I enjoyed this year's Blumarine Spring collection due to the summerish mood it brought me. The dresses are so well-done, the fabrics are fantastic and the colors are marvellous. I particularly liked the Hawaian motifs the Blumarine creative director introduced. The shoes and accessories reminded me the tribal culture, being very original for a spring collection. The flowers on clothes and shoes, although a little bit overdone, gave the entire collection that special ''thing'' which makes it differ from others.Enjoy!blumarine13 Blumarine Spring 2012 | Milan Fashion Week

MILAN FW. Salvatore Ferragamo
This year's collection at Salvatore Ferragamo's fashion show at Milan Fashion Week was full of color and truly spring blooming feelings. The Spring/Summer 2012 women collection was about strong women full of energy. From my point of view, the purpose of the presented clothes is to discover the diva behind every woman. The creative director of Ferragamo's brand, Massimiliano Giornetti knew perfectly how to play with different fabrics and diverse colors, adding tropical and wildish motifs into his designs. The dresses really charge you with great energy due to its color diversity, offering a sensual summer look.















































The MAN!

PARIS FW. Louis Vuitton


 As soon as I've seen the Louis Vuitton S/S 2012 fashion show I fell in love once more. The fairytale Marc Jacobs created is simply fabulous. The LV show was original because of "Le carrousel'' which is something like the circular dance of fashion. It was a true Parisian show and I think none of the other fashion shows in the world can be compared to this one. The carrousel has taken everyone present at the event in the world of gentleness, childish feelings, enjoyment and love.The one who closed the show was the amazing Kate Moss who did her job perfect, walking girlie and catching everybody's eyes on her.Enjoy the photo gallery.







































































MARC JACOBS:       "I think the Louis Vuitton woman wants to be seen, she wants to be noticed.''

EMMYS 2011 Style Report


Best dressed. My choice: Nina Dobrev   The critics named her gown - ''a mess''. Who cares what they say? I love the dress. It looks stunning on her. Isn't she GORGEOUS?                   

Best dressed man. My choice: Ian SomerhalderMy GOOOD! He's hot!

Kaley Cuoco. Her lace dress is beautiful and just for her. The length of the dress is perfect. Her red shoes and clutch are a good choice for this outfit. 

Julianna Margulies. God, I love this woman, but why had she put on such an ugly dress? This corset is rather strange. She is beautiful, the white looks great on her, but the dress....oh...Sorry Julianna, you'd better take a stylist next time. 

Lea Michele. Another lady in red which I like less than the previous. She looks good, but i don't like the upper part of the dress however the back is rather sexy.

Anna Torv. She looks great in this black dress. Her make-up and hair are just fine. And her blue sandals seem nice.

Julia Stiles. Oh...this grey dress doesn't fit her at all. And what's wrong with her hair? 

Rachael Taylor. Girl, I love your haircut, but what did you want to say with this metallic dress? It's horible.

Taraji P. Henson. Failed.

Jayma Mays. You look pretty. I love your lipstick. The color of the dress is very delicate. But there is something about the dress I don't like. Sorry!

Jane Lynch. Ohhh...what a mess! The host of the event is supposed to look at least elegant if not gorgeous. She failed. These dresses are so ugly. OK fine...the second one is kinda nice...but it doesn't explain the rest. 

Rob Lowe and Sofia Vergara. They are so beautiful together. Rob looks stunning. Sofia is doing her best to get up to expectations.  

Elisabeth Moss. Sorry, is that a dress?

Michelle Forbes. This woman is beautiful. This dress is a perfect choice for her and for her black hair.

Zooey Deschanel. God! She's adorable. She looks like a kid at a school ball. Pink and delicate. Good job Zooey!

Jennifer Westfeldt & Jon Hamm. This man looks fantastic. Jen is beautiful. And although I hate the yellow dresses, this one looks good on this blonde smiling girl.

Paula Abdul. What's wrong with this corset? Are her boobs uneven? Unispired choice.

Cat Deeley. Absolutely stunning. My idea of a golden girl is pretty alike.

Gwyneth Paltrow. OH MY GOOOD! She looks fantastic! This 2-piece dress is the most stylish thing I saw among emmys outfits. It's perfect for her and fits great with her blonde straight hair. Her smile that night had probably broken many hearts.

Cobie Smulders. This turquoise gown had definetely a strong effect on the people present their. She is very elegant.

Minka Kelly. Critics said it better: ''Such a gorgeous girl stuck in a dress that looks like it was made for our grandma.''

Aubrey Plaza. A very delicate and nice dress.

Christine Baranski. ''The Good Wife'' star was wearing that night a very sexy suit dress. She looks marvellous.

Lena Headey. A stupendous brunette in an old-school dress. An awesome old-school dress. I was impressed by her electric pink shoes. 10+ for boldness. Her smoky make-up did its job.

Amy Poehler. Does this woman actually think she looks good? Her pleasant face says she does. I find her funny. The dress is horible.

Naya Rivera. Absolutely fabulous. The black dress is never a mistake (ok, almost never). This time she rocked. Her make-up is lovely.

Sofia Vergara. Beautiful dress. Beautiful girl. Amazing earrings.

Connie Britton. The dress seems pretty nice at first glance. But then I saw the back part of it. Oh...no. 

Heidi Klum. This woman definetely knows how to emphasize a dress. The nude look she chose is simply great. And her shoes. GOD! HER SHOES! 

Dianna Agron. The dress is nice. But this shiny electric blue fabric...God no.

Kate Winslet. A 'Rose' in red :) Great job Kate!

Katie Holmes. She's lovely. But unfortunately her dress failed. Critics: ''She was going for Grecian goddess, but instead came off looking like a yoga instructor as her top looks like a sports bra.''

Jennifer Carpenter. This amazing metallic dress is sexy and elegant at the same time. Great!

Aimee Teegarden. ''A girl should be two things - classy and fabulous.''                                                                                 Coco Chanel And this is just another inspired black dress. This time an asymmetrical, but gorgeous one. Beautiful hair, Aimee. 

Paz de la Huerta. KILL ME! What the hell is this!? Is she a mexican fugitive hiding at emmys with a horible hairstyle with the purpose of not being recognized? Horible dress, hair and lipstick as well. Such a mess. ''Bad hair days'' look just like this one.

Martha Plimpton. The dress is pretty nice for her. Strange, but I didn't know she actually has a ''body''.

GOLD DREAMS
Eniko Mihalik for Harpers Bazaar US March 2011 4

How many of you knew that GOLD is fashionable this season? Well it is.Gold is the color of wealth and prosperity. The Royal Color.Eniko Mihalik for Harpers Bazaar US March 2011 2

Pick from your wardrobe the most simple clothes. Make a humble outfit. And make it special using a golden piece. You may either choose a golden necklace, ring, bracelet, earrings, or even shoes. If you are not afraid of anything, take the lead and put on a golden dress. Anyways, you'll be trendy this season if your wear gold.

Another advantage of choosing golden accesories for completing the outfit consists in the fact that gold will make your apparel look more expensive, even if it's simple at all. You will look more self-confident, richer and more powerful among your entourage.

Regarding me, I was inspired to chose wearing gold this season because I'm a great admirer of greek culture concerning dress style. I adore the white dresses with pieces of gold and golden jewerllery and sandals alike of the Ancient Greece beauties.

Make your imagination work limitless and combine your clothes with gold to be chic and fabulous this summer. There is only one RULE! The most important one! Remember: do not overdo!!! 'Cause you know: less is more!

SHOOZ!


I can't imagine my life without shoes! Can you? When I put on a pair of beautiful  high-heeled shoes I feel so chic and so self-confident. It's incredible how a stunning pair of shoes can make your day better. It can be either sandals or shoes, anyway I have a special feeling for them. A pair of stylish shoes can make any lady look beautiful. Even if you wear a simple little black dress or a classy office outfit, a chic pair of shoes will embellish it and will give it a special look. As it's known, shoes make the outfit, so they should make it chic and fabulous.

As for me, shoes are the most important thing in each lady's wardrobe. Therefore they should be the most expensive ones. Don't buy lots of shoes only because you liked them for a moment. Think twice. Later you may regret. Buy classy shoes which won't get old-fashioned too soon or at all. Choose for your shopping the best boutiques and brands. Don't be stingy when you find a stylish pair of shoes. If you can't afford them yet, wait for the sales, don't buy cheap shoes. Choose only qualitative ones and follow the fashion trends. Even if you like extravagant shoes, make sure your outfit is not overdone. Combine them with simple apparel. And also make sure you have in your wardrobe besides extravagant footwear, at least one pair of classic shoes for any unexpected situation.From medieval aristocrats wearing decorative shoes to denote nobility to our current obsession with celebrity shoe designers, shoes have and will forever be an integral part of our ability to express our fashion sense and individuality.

For my presentation of shoes in this article, I chose Charlotte Olympia Dellal as she is my favorite designer of shoes nowadays. Enjoy!









YOGA - body's expression of the spirit
  

OK, ladies! Now a question for you: do you know that YOGA is the best choice you can make for you health? I'm sure some of you have also met this sort of occupation, others may have heard about it. 

I decided to write an article about yoga beacause recently I have started to practice it and I wanted to share with you the positive changes I got from it. I'm really impressed by this incredible culture called yoga. I say ''culture'' because for me it's more than simple gimnastics or sort of sport. There is an entire culture behind this little thing called ''yoga''. In general terms yoga is defined as a physical, mental, and spiritual discipline, originating in modern India, whose goal is the attainment of a state of perfect spiritual insight and tranquility. The word is associated with meditative practices in Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism. Someone who practices yoga or follows the yoga philosophy with a high level of commitment is called a yogi or yogini (wow! I actually did't know this :).The goals of practicing yoga vary from improving you physical health to achieving the symbiosis of the spirit with nature. It consists of physical exercises and meditation practice as well.                 

After a week of practicing yoga my body feels perfect, my mind is actually thinking and working now much better, my mood is wonderful the entire day and my soul is finally fully reconciled with itself. I FEEL GREAT! :)                 

Did you know that yoga helps a lot in diminishing the menstrual cramps? And I can once more confirm it! Recent studies show that the menstrual pains are fully reduced by such poses as Cat, Cobra and Fish. So, google it and do it! :)               

For women who want children it's good to know that there are fertility yoga classes which can help you conceive. And this practice is becoming more and more popular as the time goes. You should try it! You have only to win from it.Yoga practice is also becoming fashionable among children. Clinical research suggests that yoga supports sharpened concentration; reduces behavioral problems, stress, heart rate, headaches, and general tension; lengthens attention span; and improves grades, physical health, and self-esteem among children of all ages.There are lots of reasons why you should practice yoga. And, in my opinion, any of them is fair enough for you to start practicing it. I present you a list of them below and feel free to choose the one that most motivates you. Here you are.YOGA WILL:*Strengthen your muscles*Bring flexibility into your joints *Build strong bones *Decrease stress and improve your ability to focus*Make you feel better*Build your confidence*Reduce the menstrual cramps*Make you have better energy *Relieve symptoms of mild depression*Reduce heart disease*Make you look better*Help you to lose weight*Clear your mind*Calm your spiritHave you already chose? Nevermind what that reason is, you should really try it! I'm sure the changes yoga will bring into your life won't be but positive ones! Bring peace and harmony in your life along with YOGA and be happy!

If you don't afford to take yoga classes you have two options:                                        -you may build a home yoga practiceor-you may move outdoors and practice it Here you are good pieces of advice for both options: Building a Home Yoga PracticeYoga Moves Outdoors for the Summer



The History of LACOSTE


Plenty of us wear the Lacoste brand but very few know its true origins. The entrepreneurial spirit, even before his retirement from sport, the french tennisman René Lacoste had founded a private company of sport articles, being one of its most devoted customers. The company was called La Société Chemise Lacoste and was created by him and André Gillier in 1933. It produced the tennis shirt which Lacoste often wore when he was playing tennis. All the T-shirts had an alligator (generally thought to be a crocodile) embroidered on the left chest. The origin of the crocodile comes from René's nickname in his sport life. The representant of the white sport was called ''the crocodile'' by the american press due to his tenacity on the court. The shirt represented nothing more than a simple white cotton jersey, with a little embroidered crocodile. Lacoste claims this as the first example of a brand name appearing on the outside of an article of clothing. In 1951, the company began to expand as it branched from "tennis white" and introduced color shirts. In 1952, the shirts were exported to the United States and advertised as "the status symbol of the competent sportsman".Nowadays, besides the revolutionary tennis shirts, Lacoste is producing high-end clothing, footwear, perfume, leather goods, watches and eyewear. In recent years, Lacoste has introduced a home line of sheeting and towels. In addition to tennis shirts, Lacoste produces shirts for golf and sailing, influencing the clothing choices of the upper-class.

The Color Block
 

Have you heard about the hottest trend this season? Let me introduce to you THE COLOR BLOCK!As for me it was a great surprise because I like colorful clothes but in the last times, following the fashion trends I used to wear pale classic colors. This trend came just in time! And now it's time for completing our wardrobes with lots of colors.This trend is based on combining clothes of different colors at first sight misfit. In my opinion, this season the designers have done their work stupendous. As an example I prefered to take Gucci S/S 2011Collection beacause for me, it embraces all the amazing things a collection should possess: marvellous fabrics, stunning colors and of course, lovely accesories. I fell in love with their ad campaign, expressing such magical feelings it inspires me. It can be easily noticed the grace and the true style the Gucci S/S 2011 Collection offers to a lady.So, I hope this collection will inspire you too. Don't be afraid! Experience with colors to be trendy this season! Enjoy!

5 must-haves in the beach bag


When going to the beach it is extremely important to be prepared for any situation . Maybe some of you are not very informed about how should pass a successful sunbathing process, that's why here you are a list of must-haves in your beach bag I made.1.TOWEL. It is an important detail in the beach bag. Some of us can't ''exist'' on the beach without it, others prefer not to have it, believing that the Sun is taking its place. Well, each of them are right and both are wrong. :) Why? Because a towel should be present in a beach bag, but we should use it just to remove the water from the face, the body should be left to be dried by the Sun. This way you'll get tanned faster.2.SUNSCREEN. It's, in my opinion, the most important must-have in the beach bag. Our skin is very vulnerable to the UV rays and you might get red if staying to much exposed to the sun without using a high SPF sunscreen. No matter if your skin is darker or whiter, the excesive sunbathing is damaginf it and increases the aging process.3.SUNGLASSES. Besides stylish accesories, sunglasses are very useful things wherever there's  sun and especially on the beach. Our eyes need protection as well as the entire body. So it's necessary to have one pair of dark sunglasses in the beach bag.4.HAT. A hot trend this season and of course, a must-have in the beach bag. There are few of us who prefer to wear hats at the beach or wearing them at all. But hats have a significant role . Those who wear hats on the beach are protected from direct sunlight which might provoke headaches, rise of tension or migraines. Hats also protect the hair which can be easily damaged by the sunlight.5.SCARF. Also a hot trend and a stylish detail of the beach outfit must-haves. When wearing it, follow your imagination and be inspired. You can either tie it on your body as a beach dress/skirt or you can put it on your shoulders when walking along the seashore. You can also put it on your head if you don't have a hat. This way you'll be once more protected from the Sun.                             

Well my dears, this is it. I'm done here. These are the things which you must have in your beach bag and nothing more. My advice to you, my readers, don't take unnecessary things at the beach. Think twice before you put in your bag all stuff you see such as music players, cells, magazines (OK, fine, you may take one :), expensive things, jewerly, food or drinks (maybe just a bottle of water). This way you'll get a heavy bag full of worries and stress. Having just these 5 things in your beach bag you have all you need in an easy bag and you'll feel more confortable, 'cause this is how you should feel on the beach - relaxed. :)                 



The Olive Oil
This Sunday I decided to dedicate the entire day to...myself  :) . As I had no plans because of the ''amazing'' weather outside, before falling into a depression, I told myself that nothing's gonna ruin another weekend of my summer. So I consecrated this day to beauty...my beauty :) . This is how I discovered an incredible elixir of youth and health. You are probably thinking and guessing what am I talking about, what's that elixir?..OH HELL! no you're not...you've read the title of the article... :))

Anyways I'm going to tell you how I spent my Sunday in the company of the Olive Oil.I woke up EARLY (usually at 1 p.m. I'm STILL sleeping!) , had a fresh strawberry juice for breakfast (yummy!). A little bit later I found in the kitchen a bottle of Olive oil. I was happy to find it as I read plenty of articles and interesting facts about it and wanted to try it personally, just didn't have the opportunity (I have a ''special'' memory for this kind of things :) . I read that it is good for the skin, hair; in one word - for the entire body. I instantly decided to try it! At first I made a hair mask with which I stayed on my hair the whole day. (When my sister came in the evening she scared me telling that a friend of her did the same thing and all her hair had gone...and that the mask should be kept no more than an hour) OMG! She really scared me...But don't worry...at last I found out it was a joke... Anyways, I didn't believe her :) So know that the more you keep this mask on your hair the better for it. 

Well, let's continue...Besides hair, I wanted to use the oil on skin. I took a bowl, poured the oil into it, took a dose on my fingers and smoothed it on my arms, neck and even face. Well...my impressions?...I was feeling so...oily :)) and this feeling lasted until I got bored because it didn't soaked to the skin...and I took a shower, rinsing the oil from my skin and hair. Then my skin felt soft and moisturized, my hair felt also good, actually GREAT, it was shinning amazingly. Today it still shines and my skin is still soft. That's why I've decided to repeat this experience every Sunday since now. You should try it too! Believe me, it worths!   

I heard the Olive Oil has miraculous effects if using inside, I mean in food or drinks. So, I guess I'll be using it more often now. :)
