Paint me a story...

This dress was handmade in the late 70's by my mother in law, for my grandmother. She was actually Alex's grandmother, but I've known her since I was a kid, and I love her truly. Sadly, she passed away last spring, she didn't get to see us on our wedding day, which was something she had dreamed of for so long... I was deeply saddened by her passing, my heart still hurts when I think about her! Aside from many beautiful memories, she also left me some precious, special gifts! Her gold medallion, her rings and... this gorgeous dress!

A few months before my wedding, as I was trying to cope with an amalgam of different emotions and find my balance, I felt like looking through old family photos. It is something that always seems to relax me... I found a particular photo, from my in-laws wedding and told my mother-in-law that I really loved the dress Grandma wore that day! Her face lightened and she said the dress was still in Grandma's old house and that she could get it for me! I can't explain how happy that made me!  The day I put it on, and realized it fits me, was the most special day! Grandma was a bit shorter that I am, but I did't want to alter the dress. For me, it's the most beautiful thing in the world, it has a history, it tells the story of the most amazing person! I'm very humbled, honored and thankful for the chance of wearing it!

'Tis the season...

Winter is coming!

Hey, don't shoot the messenger, but there are only 31 days until Christmas! It's getting colder, and some regions have already experienced the first snow of the year :D. It's time for copious amounts of home cooked food, carols, mulled wine, winter sports, presents, family time. It's going to be exhausting, but boy... I can't wait for all that craziness!

For now, I'm looking out my window for first signs of winter, and try not to think about snow in our chaotic city... Instead, I try to imagine our beautiful mountains, those breathtaking landscapes and that feeling of absolute freedom and pushing one's limits that snowboarding and other winter sports offer! Then I add that sweet, precious time with my loved ones for Christmas, and welcoming the new year with my best friends, and I get the exact image of a perfect winter season!

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

On my Black Friday wish list...

Hi guys,

I don't know if it has anything to do with my recent wedding, but lately I've become obsessed with tulle skirts. My inspiration board is full of outfit combinations built around this gorgeous item, and I wanted one of my own sooo badly. A couple of weeks ago, I saw on Daniela's Facebook page that she was wearing this beautiful tulle skirt, exactly like the one I was dreaming of.

I found out it was from Zaza Boutique, amd immediately placed an order. They were so nice as to give me a call to make sure they got the correct size and length, and a few days later, I received it and it was exactly how I'd pictured it. Soft, comfortable, versatile. I have quite a few outfits in mind, centered on my princess-like skirt, one of which you had the chance to see last weekend here on the blog. Here's a little reminder:

And here are some powerful examples of how other bloggers wore the tulle skirt:

And since Black Friday is just around the corner, I'm thinking of ordering yet another skirt, but I haven't yet decided on the color and length. It's so hard to pick, with so many options to choose from! I saw this long tulle skirt which took my breath away and would make for the perfect New Year's Eve look!

Take a look below (for romanian readers), there is a short description of Zaza Boutique where you'll also find details about their Black Friday offer.

Happy shopping, you guys!

Autumn rhapsody

Hi guys,

I am so thankful that the weather is giving me the chance to enjoy these beautiful autumn colors. Every season has its upside, but, like I've said it a billion times before, autumn has a particular charm. Fall fashion is absolutely amazing (woolen scarves, chunky sweaters, warm coats) , and what about those seasonal delights: pumpkin spiced everything :), cinnamon apple tart...yummy!

Since I have this feeling that winter is rapidly approaching (I heard carols at the mall today :P), I decided to wear my beautiful tull skirt while I could still make use of this amazing backdrop. And nature, once again, performed wonderfully!
