H&M Fall 2013

28 Feb

H&M is back on the runway after 8 years and I must admit the return was not bad at all – at Musee Rodin during Paris Fashion Week.

The fall collection is all about black, with a few touches of beads, studs and fur. Though not much my style, I like the cuts of the coats and the cape in particular. If only I could find one to fit me.

What do you think? Do you have a personal fav?

Oscars 2013 favourites

26 Feb

The Oscars made the front page to all publications these days. Who cares about Italian elections or demonstrations in Bulgaria when Michelle Obama showed up live to the gala and Jennifer Lawrence fell on the stage?

More to it, there are tens of gowns to admire and other tens ot other to put on your “never ever” list. To randomly name a few, my favourites were the First Lady and her Naeem Khan silver dress (you should know that she was given sleeves by the Iranian television ), Amy Adams in Oscar de la Renta, Stacey Keibler in (yes, again!) Naeem Khan dress and of course the lady of the Oscars, Jennifer Lawrence and her Dior Haute Couture dress.

Did I miss anyone really important? Which one did you like best?

Not to forget about the movies! I did not watch all of them what I have watched Argo and liked it, withiut considering it a spectacular movie. Lincoln is next on my list!



1. Michelle Obama – Naeem Khan


2. Amy Adams – Oscar de la Renta


Jennifer Lawrence – Dior Haute Couture


Catherine Zeta Jones – Zuhair Murad


Jennifer Aniston – Valentino (I like the dress, but I honestly think that should forgot about the hairdo)


Stacey Keibler – Naeem Khan (and yet Clooney is the best accessory you can ever get)


Sandra Bullock – Elie Saab Haute Couture

Get the Look: Jenna Lyons

Jenna Lyons Get the Look

Zara top

Jenna Lyons, designer for J. Crew (yes, J. Crew again!) is one of my favourite fashionistas around. With a net, basic-pieces looks, she still remains one of the favourites of the fashion magazines and is the proof that you do not need to put on the latest or the most expensive items to look great. It is enough to have a few basics in your wardrobe and some insipration. Jeans, black pumps, white shirt….we all have to have them, a classy beige,greige, dust pink coat..advised, easy to find @mass market brands (I own one from last year@Zara) and an original touch coming from the accessories. The necklace could make the difference if you want to stand out. Voila, the perfect outfit! Did you try such an outfit? ‘Cause I could the entire month dressed like this!

Maybe you already know, and if you don’t..I am gonna tell you, Foreign Policy magazine publishes an yearly Global Thinkers rank. It has nothing to do with fashion, indeed. But Foreign Policy Romania has changed the rules of the game for its own edition and added, not the Romanian thinkers list as you might expect, but a list of Romanian that might get things moving on around here. And when it comes to fashion, Cristina Batlan, the owner of Musette and Maria Lucia Hohan, the women behing the MLH brand were the chosen ones.

You can grab your Cristhelen B. bags and shoes  from 14 stores in Romania and  9 other abroad. Paris and New York are on the list, but you can also find them in more exotic locations such as Ulan Bator (!), Beirut and Tel Aviv.

Month to share

19 Feb


It was this month that I had to boost my energy with gummy bears and other sweets (ohh, gulity pleasures) to make it for the exams and also celebrate my b-day. That’s where all those flowers are coming from.

Now I am anxiously waiting for the spring and looking forward to other great moments. Hope you’ll do the same.
