Start to a fashionable week

Sometimes in our daily desire to look as fashionable and glamorous as we can, we sometimes forget about comfort and manage to put ourselves in such painful situations. So this week let's try and replace the "vs" in comfort vs fashion in  comfort "and" fashion. Will you accept the challenge?

Overlooked Accessories: The Wallet


              Usually, magazines like to write about those in-your-face accessories, and seldom do they discuss, or give ideas on those accessories that stay hidden, the things which functionality sometimes may overshadow the looks.

When film met fashion

I am a sucker for classic films, especially old ones. I love it how everything presented to us, due to certain limitations, has a reason of being on the screen. Every little thing is there to emphasize the characters' story. And fashion is no exception. Due to fashion's role, you can watch the films on mute and still understand the struggles, the joys, the adventure the lead is going through.

The weather in my country it's throwing one last fit before spring is finally here, so due to extreme weather reports we are facing this weekend, I am planning to stay in and watch some oldies together with my significant other.

My choices for this weekend are:

Now, voyager (1942)

This one is probably one of the best make-over films of all time. In a few words the film tells us the transformation of Charlotte Vale, played by Bette Davis, from an introverted, awkward right on the edge of a breakdown girl to a true beautiful, full of life woman, able let herself feel love.

Dress for success or how to dress for your job interview

Picking an outfit for a job interview might be more difficult than one may expect.  
After going through this experience, and noticing that some people around me faced the same difficulties- thought to be an easy task, but in the morning discovering your creativity is seriously lacking, and ending up wearing something which makes you feel really uncomfortable- I decided to do my research and make a post with some outfits.

The areas of my interest were: finance, marketing, PR, sales and new media/internet/e-commerce

I am hoping that my post will inspire you and give you that confidence boost you need. 


Finance are pretty rigorous when it comes to fashion. There are rules, and these rules can't be broken, but they can be bent. When thinking of composing an outfit, try not to think of the blunt and boring black suit and white shirt, instead focus on colors such as dark blue, bavy, light, dark grey, even oxblood or burgundy. Instead of a suit, try a nice fitted dress, add a blazer, kitten heeled shoes, and a nice medium sized bag.

I believe in adding a hint of your personality to every outfit. Yes, the rules are strict when it comes to the finance world, but don't think somebody will kill you if you add a small brooch to your blazer, or a colorful light scarf, or for a hush hush moment play with your lingerie. Nobody will know the red sassy things you have underneath, but I bet they will make you feel a little bit naughty.

For my Romanian peeps, I found some nice dresses on, you should definitely check. I can't copy the images so I will just link you directly to them: 

Here is my inspiration:

Office attire

Recap: well fitted dress and blazer, kitten heeled black shoes,  medium sized bag, low bun, and discreet make-up and you are done!

Through a woman's point of view

I was no girly girl growing up, I had no love for dresses and the color pink, but I adored red shoes, thanks to the "Wizard of Oz" film, and being a tomboy.

I can't say I drastically changed, I still love red shoes more than anything, I do own some cute dresses, which I never get to wear, and I still live in my jeans, cropped pants and leather shorts.

Since I can remember I was fascinated with the women-pants relationship, I adored Marlene Dietrich's manly, and yet so sexy style, and loved Diane Keaton's style in "Annie Hall". The menswear for women trend is nothing new, every season it finds its way on the designer's catwalks, year after year getting a makeover together with a re-branding, making us believe in its versatility and novelty. I happen to love this trend! I believe in the power it gives you, the raw sex-appeal, it's simplicity. Wear one man suit, and that's it! You don't need anything to make you stand out. No, its simplicity is enough!
