Pardon my French

When I was a little girl, I never wanted to be an astronaut or a doctor, or a lawyer. No, I wanted to sale dresses. And people would be: But don’t you want to do something bigger? In other words, something that society thinks is a good career? I always loved clothes, I would spend hours trying on my mum’s dresses, playing with fabrics and creating outfits. I never wanted to be a designer, I was told I’m not that talented so I decided to give up on that dream. But I did like playing with clothes and I decided I’ll create a career in the fashion industry somehow. I went on to study Marketing. I thought I needed to learn how to sell the clothes, I needed to know what people want and I needed to find a way to use my creative mind. I don’t even remember the amount of times people made sure to tell me how easy is to study Marketing. And my answer would always be – it’s not easy to be the best, no matter what the hell you study or do, so shush.

I was over the moon when I found a masters degree in Fashion Marketing. I thought I finally found a way of building a career exactly how I wanted. In the meantime I started writing this tiny blog of mine. Not because I am confident, not because I am photogenic, but because I like to do creative shit and this was the best way. In the meantime a lot of girls decided to become fashion bloggers, I guess there’s no point to tell you how many eye rolls I get when I say I’m one of them. And then comments like “oh, you’re actually smart, you actually have something in your head, not just <check out what I wore today>”. Since when working in fashion is not good enough? Since when having a passion about clothing, cuts and designers is a silly thing to do? I choose my path, you do your thing and give all us fashionistas a break! I’ve seen too many awful doctors, shitty lawyers, corrupt presidents and bad teachers to think that just because you have a society favourite job, you’re fab. The job does not define you, you define you.

P.S. I hope you like my outfit! Got it in the sale, of course.

Lust for Life

CLICK PLAY

We’re a generation that struggles to get a house and settle down. We don’t like saving. We’d rather enjoy our youth and spend our money on travelling, experiences and too many drinks over the weekend. But you know what? Life is short. And it’s a lesson I’ve learnt again after the tragic event that happened in Manchester. It’s so sad and scary and just so unfair. What am I personally gonna do about it? Spread positivity and enjoy the privilege of being alive, healthy and free to enjoy this beautiful world. We’re so damn lucky.

Hello, Spring!

spring outfit michael kors clutch ara shoes office lookEN     I love spring. It used to be my favourite season. But I’ve decided I don’t have a favourite season anymore, because each of them has its own beauty. But winter might be the last on my list… or at least this winter. It was way too long, and way too rainy. So to express my excitement towards the warmer season (hopefully), I chose to wear a really bright outfit. Yes, it is too bold for the weather, it’s still cold outside. But I couldn’t help it. So I hope it gives you some inspiration for the (many) upcoming sunny days!

RO    Ador primavara. Era intr-o vreme anotimpul meu preferat dar am hotarat ca nu mai am unul. Gata. Am impresia ca fiecare anotimp are farmecul lui. Si totusi iarna poate se afla pe ultimul loc. Sau cel putin iarna asta care (in sfarsit) a trecut. A fost mult prea rece, prea ploioasa, prea lunga. Asa ca, (prea) entuziasmata am hotarat sa ma imbrac in ceva cat mai fresh de 1 Martie. Ma duce cu gandul la florile de cires, la campiile lungi si dese de la bunica. Nu stiu voi, dar eu tare-am asteptat primavara! Asa ca sper sa va placa si sa va inspire tinuta de azi.
