Easter in the UK

marni top topshop skirt spring outfit

EN    This last weekend was simply amazing. Warm and sunny, and happy people everywhere as most of them enjoyed a couple of days off for the Easter holiday. I worked on all bank holidays, but that didn’t stop me to take advantage of every single bit of sunlight. I took out loads of pink stuff from the closet and the outfit was done. What I usually do in spring is always layer up. It’s just a weird period when one minute you’re too cold, one minute you’re too warm. And I hate that. So to feel better I put on as many layers as I can. In order to avoid looking way too big, I like to choose thin fabrics and a scarf is always a good idea.


RO    Weekendul trecut a fost de vis – vreme exceptionala, oameni fericiti pe tot locul, Pastele aici in Anglia. In parc era plin de oameni intinsi la soare. Mult asteptatul soare, dupa luni si luni de cer gri. Fete in rochii, zgribulind usor de frig, imbracate mult prea sumar pentru vremea de primavara, insa entuziasmul a fost prea mare. Si desi stiam ca trebuie sa ma intorc la munca urmatoarea zi, ma simteam asa libera si relaxata, ca si cum nici nu eram in Manchester, ca si cum eram undeva intr-o tara straina, intr-o vancanta, departe. Inca de mica bunica m-a invatat sa ma imbrac bine primavara, ca soarele-i inselator. Si chiar asa e, ba ti-e prea frig, ba prea cald. Asa ca imi place sa am cat mai multe straturi de haine pe mine, sa fiu pregatita. Ca sa nu ma incarc prea tare, aleg haine din materiale subtiri, fine. Iar esarfa port mereu in anotimpul asta. marni top topshop skirt spring outfit marni top topshop skirt spring outfit marni top topshop skirt spring outfit marni top topshop skirt spring outfit marni top topshop skirt spring outfit

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?
