Three looks – Black and Bold

autumn fall three looks

EN   For a while now I’ve been thinking of creating outfit videos, I find them more entertaining and I finally decided to go for it. I’ve been listening to Beyonce – Haunted for too many hours lately so I got inspired by this song to come up with three, dark outfits. Have a look and find the details of the outfits at the end of the post.

RO   De ceva vreme ma gandeam sa incep sa creez filmulete cu tinute, mi se par mai interactive – asa ca saptamana trecut am hotarat sa nu mai aman, ce-o fi o fi! Am ascultat piesa Haunted – Beyonce de prea multe ori in ultima vreme, asa ca am hotarat sa creez trei tinute inspirate de melodie. Va invit sa vizionati filmuletul, detaliile tinutelor le-am scris la finalul postarii.

The LBD

There’s like an unwritten law that a girl should have in her closet at least one little black dress. I might have taken this a bit too far as I’ve already added to my collection more of them. So yes, I agree. A black dress can make a great outfit for a casual day, for an interview, for a day at work, for a night out..or for a blog post! Officially this is my interview dress. I usually wear a black top underneath or a shirt for a smarter look. And on top I add a fancy blazer. But today I’m showing you the dress in its simplest way paired with a pair of boots only. And yes, the glasses.

E de la sine inteles ca orice fata trebuie sa aiba o rochie neagra in garderoba. Iar la capitolul asta stau chiar prea bine. Mereu m-au atras rochiile negre si de multe ori pornesc cu gandul sa-mi iau una de alta culoare, dar in final tot la negru ajung. Adevarul e ca o rochie neagra merge la atatea ocazii, e mereu eleganta si n-are cum sa nu-ti placa. In pozele de azi am ales sa port rochia ‘de interviuri’. Pentru ca asta am purtat la interviurile pe care le-am avut pana acum. De obicei port pe dedesupt o bluza neagra sau o camasa si completez tinuta cu un sacou, pentru a fi mai ‘profi’. De data asta am purtat-o in cea mai simpla forma si am accesorizat-o cu ghetutele mele preferate si noii ochelari.

Good things come for those who wait.. or work?

On my way to work I pass a gym that’s opened 24/7. The thing is that I can pass that place at 5 am in the morning, or late at 11pm. This is because my shifts vary a lot. The point is that no matter how early or late it is, someone’s going to the gym or home, from the gym. And I find this really inspiring – seeing people at 6 am on Saturdays going to work out. I wanted to share with you this because I think it’s a strong message: if we want to accomplish something, we need to start doing something, we need to find time and energy. And this makes me wonder, how many of you are still working to accomplish that list you made for 2014? It is said that many forget about that by the end of February. If you too forgot about that list, maybe this inspires you to get motivated. If not, share with us some of your tips, how do you stay motivated? How do remain consistent?

In drum spre servici trec pe langa o sala de fitness care e deschisa non stop. Pentru ca lucrez in retail, pot sa trec pe-acolo dimineata la 5 sau seara tarziu pe la 11. Ce ma surprinde e ca indiferent de ora sau zi, cineva merge sau pleaca de la sala. Cu alte cuvinte, in timp ce eu ma indrept somnoroasa spre servici sambata la ora 6, cineva deja si-a terminat antrenamentul. Mie asta mi se pare extraordinar si am zis sa impartasesc si cu voi pentru ca oamenii astia transmit un mesaj important: daca vrem sa facem ceva, trebuie sa gasim timp. Pentru ca aud des in jurul meu: ‘Oh, as vrea sa fac X,Y dar n-am timp’ Sunt convinsa ca oamenii astia sunt ocupati, altfel nu s-ar trezi in weekend la 5 ca sa mearga la sport. Daca ei pot, noi de ce nu putem? Pe mine personal m-a motivat foarte mult sa-i vad si sper ca va inspira si pe voi povestea mea sa va dedicati mai mult viselor personale.

New boots

black leather jacketIt’s not the first time we see leather/leather look-alike as being on trend. Let’s face it – it’s classic, it’s stylish and it goes with many different outfits. And because I finally found a nice pair of boots, I combined them with a look-alike leather jacket. Black and simple. And to put my signature in it, I chose a cute necklace to make my look more girly. Here’s my look for today. I had to layer up a bit, lately it’s been quite cold outside, brr! So all I want to do right now is light up some candles, drink a hot tea, and reorganise my closet with some warm clothes. What are your plans for this weekend?

In sfarsit mi-am gasit o pereche de botine! De mult imi cautam…si pana la urma am hotarat sa mi le iau pe cele de la H&M. Imi place textura si demult cautam ceva asemanator. Problema mea vesnica e marimea… port 35 si e un chin sa gasesc ceva, in special in UK. Totusi, deseori imi iau de la H&M marimea 36 si-s bunicele…cred ca au un calapod mai mic. Si bucuroasa de noua achizitie, am purtat botinele cu o geaca de piele articiala. Am zis sa ma asortez! Asa ca va arat tinuta, destul de simpla. Iar acum ma-ntorc la reorganizarea dulapului: e timpul sa scoatem puloverele de la naftalina! Intre timp am aprins cateva lumanari (cu aroma de Craciun – stiu, stiu…) si savurez un ceai fierbinte. Nu stiu la voi cum e, dar aici a cam venit toamna!
