Clothes swap – a girl’s thing!

waste not clothes swapThis Sunday I went to a very cool event, called Waste Not Clothes Swap. I chose 5 things I don’t need anymore and brought them with me. When I got there, Allie, the organizer, welcomed us with coffee, tea and cake! After that, the swap began. I have to say I was happy to see many beautiful items, popular brands and good quality! I liked a lot of things and my biggest regret was not bringing more things, so I could take more too! And what I liked most was that I felt like when I was in High school: many girls, listening to music, eating cake, chatting about anything, trying on clothes and having fun!  I loved the event because it was more than just clothes, it was a social thing and I can’t wait for the next one! Check out the Suits&Skiprats blog to see more details about the event (rules, organizers etc) and what the others have swapped (will be on this week!)!WASTE NOT CLOTHES SWAP

Eram in liceu si aveam o prietena buna, Carmen. Noi doua eram impreuna mereu, la shopping, in oras, la scoala, la petreceri. Si cel mai fain era cand ne intalneam ba la ea, ba la mine si ne aranjam inainte de a iesi in oras. In timp ce dansam, ne aranjam parul si probam haine sa vedem care ce poarta. Si tot timpul ne imprumutam hainele. Da’ tot timpul! Si era fain, ca aveai ceva ‘nou’ in seara aia, si toate stim ce bine ne simtim cand purtam ceva pentru prima data. Da, mereu mi-a placut sa fac schimb de haine cu prietenele mele si mereu am facut-o. Ei bine, decand prin Manchester, nu  am imprumutat haine, decat de la Dan, da’ aia nu se pune!

Doar ca duminica, o tipa foarte faina a organizat un ‘schimb de haine’ oficial, unde oricine putea sa-si aduca haine de care nu mai are nevoie si sa isi ia altceva in schimb. Cumperi haine…cu haine! Si a fost o idee super! Am ‘scapat’ de niste lucruri pe care veci nu le-as mai fi purtat si m-am ales cu altele care-mi plac foarte mult!Shorts & teddy bear Shorts - details colourful outfitBright colours comfortable outfitTopshop topClothes swap not wasteThank you, girls, for everything you brought!

The Great Gatsby Style

the great gatsbyIt’s funny how a movie can have such a strong impact on fashion. I don’t know about other countries, but in the UK you can already see the Gatsby inspiration in the fashion magazines, retailers and even fashion books. I finally saw the movie yesterday and I liked it. It was..interesting and sad, but yes, I liked it. I think Leonardo DiCaprio is a great actor. What do you think about this style?

Cred ca ati auzit sau ati vazut noul film, The Great Gatsby – un film interesant, zic eu. Ce ma surprinde e cat de popular a ajuns acest stil vestimentar prin diverse reviste si magazine. Prima data mi-au sarit in ochi articolele din revistele de moda, interviurile cu Leonardo DiCaprio. Iar cand am observat ca cei de la Tiffany au creat o intreaga colectie, am zis sa ma uit si la imbracaminte. Si da, sunt multe, foarte multe piese vestimentare inspirate din acea perioada. Voua cum vi se pare stilul?

Online shopping

People seem to shop online a lot. Well, I personally prefer to go in the shop, feel the fabric, try on the garment, look at myself in the mirror from 100 angles and, maybe, afterwards, buy the product… But there are so many amazing things online, that I can’t help it. So yes, even if I know it’s a high risk I’m gonna return it, if I like it, I’m gonna buy it!

In ultima vreme lumea cumpara des online. Eu personal prefer sa merg prin magazine, sa simt materialul, sa probez haina, sa ma uit in oglinda din toate unghiurile posibile si-apoi, eventual, s-o cumpar. Numai ca, trebuie sa recunosc, sunt o gramada de oferte extraordinare pe net! Asa ca, da, chiar daca stiu ca probabil am sa trimit haina inapoi, daca-mi place, o comand! 

Here’s my latest order, which was a succes!

Iata ultima comanda, care-a fost un succes!

So here’s my advice:

1. Try to order from shops that have free delivery or free returns (some of them may return your money for the garments, but not for the transport!)

2. If you have the shop in your city, check first if they have the garment there

3. Always order more sizes/colours if you’re not sure.

4. Read the customer reviews (if there are any) – really helpful!


 Iata cateva sfaturi:

1. Incercati sa comandati de pe site-uri ce ofera transport gratuit sau returnari (unele vor returna banii de pe haine, dar nu si de pe transport!)

2. Daca aveti acelasi magazin in oras, incercati prima data acolo, poate gasiti ce va doriti

3. Mereu comandati mai multe marimi/culori daca nu sunteti sigure/siguri.

4. Cititi parerile consumatorilor (daca exista) – pot fi foarte utile!


How much do you shop online?

Voi cat de des cumparati online?
