Working in fashion can be very dangerous for you. It makes you wanna buy everything. You discover new brands, new styles, new bargains and you end up wanting all of them. That’s me at least. And I’m not happy to admit that I still have a handful of items I haven’t worn yet. So to make myself feel better about spending all my money on clothes and accessories, I often buy reduced items. I don’t remember when I last bought a full priced piece of clothing. But it’s good for me. I don’t follow trends by heart, I don’t mind experiencing and I definitely don’t care if anything I wear is classed as old fashioned.
If you’re in this category, then I’ve got some news my friend! Sales time is the best time. And don’t even bother going in town and face the madness, online shopping all the way!
End of January I went back home in Romania and found this gorgeous embroidered skirt in a local designer’s shop. It was about £30, only a couple of them have been made, it’s got several layers underneath so it makes you feel like a princess when you wear it. It’s like the sales advisor told me: probably the fabric costed more than £30, you’re so lucky it’s in sale! And top of the iceberg: it’s got tulle, embroidered flowers (proper embroidered, not printed!) and it’s a maxi/midi skirt – it’s got the 17 trends already. The only reason it was reduced – it’s all autumn/winter colours. The irony of sale in the fashion industry. I would have never sold this gorgeous piece for a reduced price.
So to match the gorgeous dress, we had to take some pictures in a gorgeous place. The photos were made in Lake District, all at the same time, no heavy editing on the pictures – however, check how the lighting changes from one photo to another. That’s the Lake District weather, my friends 🙂

EN I think this is the coolest casual midi dress I’ve ever spotted! Seen from the front it looks just like a plain comfy dress. But it’s actually quite magical! The skirt is so dense, that when you walk or the wind blows, it flows a bit. And the cherry on top is the fact that is backless! I used to wear backless things all the time when I was younger, I don’t know why I stopped really. It’s such a fun thing, especially in the summer! And I know some of you might be afraid because it’s always hard to wear it with a bra – that’s why I’m gonna share with you my wisdom: wear a colourful funky bra underneath to complement the outfit and you’re good to go! 🙂
RO Cred ca asta-i cea mai faina rochie midi casual pe care-as fi putut-o gasi la un pret atat de avantajos! La prima vedere pare o simpla rochie din bumbac, perfecta pentru o tinuta lejera. Insa rochia asta are cateva secrete! In primul rand, fusta e facuta din foarte mult material asa ca atunci cand cobori scarile sau vantul sufla usor, se ridica si creeaza niste valuri extraordinare. Iar cireasa de pe tort e spatele gol! Am si uitat ce mult imi plac mie hainele cu spatele gol… Si stiu ca uneori ne e greu sa purtam haine de genul pentru ca ne e dificl sa gasim sutienul potrivit. Ei bine, vara e mult mai usor – eu merg pe optiunea: un sutien care sa complimenteze tinuta, ceva colorat, ceva diferit – si gata, am rezolvat problema! 🙂

I don’t know why, but lately I’ve been wearing brown a lot. And all these Vintage Fairs that are quite popular in the UK just make me wanna wear more brown. This time, I’m actually wearing a vintage skirt from Romania. I bought it, but I’ll find similar skirts in my mom’s closet. Which gives me another idea – to show you some of my mom’s clothes, that I now wear. I love them, she was a true fashionista, I may say! But for now, I’ll show you this beautiful brown skirt, I hope you’ll enjoy the pictures!
Nu stiu de ce, dar in ultima vreme am purtat haine maro foarte des. Si mergand mereu la targuri vintage (cam renumite pe-aici), vad multe haine maro care-mi fac cu ochiul. De data asta, am purtat o fusta vintage din Romania cumparata; un model pe care-l gasesc in diferite culori la mama-n dulap. Ceea ce ma duce la o noua idee: sa va arat si voua ce port, decand mama avea varsta mea. Sunt absolut minunate.. Dar deocamdata va arat fusta asta care mie-mi place mult, sper sa va placa si voua!
