Spring basics

31 Mar
One single sunbeam was enough to make me rethink my spring looks. When it comes to basign, I’m the man (or maybe the lady). I love basis pieces for their timelessness and versatility. I’ve probably told you before that I am not a fashionista, therefore I would not mind much wearing a classy color or one that suits me simply because it it not trendy. Being stylish is more than being  trendy, let’s face it!
A beige trench coat is a must in everyone’s closet, as much as a classy pair of pumps and one of loafers (if you insist to be trendy, pick them in burgundy).
Pick a red blazer and a colourful silk scarf to spice up your black&white business attaire. I prefer the black&white polka dots blouse to the stripped one for the girlish touch it could bring to an outfit. As for the pencil leather skirt, this is my new darling.
I hope this will prove useful for your spring looks! I am sure I have not included all the key, basis items, threfore I welcome and ideas of yours.
Have a great Sunday and a productive week!

The dress code is something we should consider every time we go to an event. Maybe the florist or the shop assistant do not care how we dress, but when with a crowd, we should blend in. Following a certain dress code is not a matter of style, but a matter of politeness, a way to show that we care about others, not opnly about ourselves. Therefore, when in doubt, overdress! And by this I do not mean put the most glamourous dress on, but stick to the basics when it comes to colours and cuts. Maybe you want to be original, but you will never make a good impression wearing a bright pink dress when everyone else is wearing black. Try something else insetead. An accessory would be a good idea to differentiate yet not make a bad shot.

My style: Waiting for spring

16 Mar

Do you rember the Jenna Lyons inspired outfit post? Here is my own version of it I have been wearing a few days ago: basic jeans, shirt and pumps, beige coat, clutch and a statement necklace. Alltogether, a chic and versatile outfit.

I am anxiously waiting for spring and hopefully  the coat would not be of much use in a week. However, it could easily be replaced by a classy beige trench coat.

What do you think? Do you have any ideas for pimping this outfit?

Marc Jacobs for Diet Coke

13 Mar

Following  Karl Lagerfeld and Jean Paul Gaultier, Marc Jacobs has designed the most recent limited edition of Diet Coke bottles and cans.

To mark the 30th anniversary of the most famous diet drink, Jacobs has created 3 decade-inspired packaging portraying the empowered woman of the ’80s, the extravagant of the ’90s and the playful one of the ’00s.

Jacobs is about to turn 50, but with his look, had no inhibitions to shoot topless for Diet Coke campaign. He loves attention and other stuff you can read about in his interview for The Telegraph.

What do you think? Did you get your own collectibles? I must admit this is one of the small things that would give me a possitive impulse for the day. I am not a Coke lover but I like Coke Diet much better. However, I am afraid I would not be able to purchase them in Romania. We do not even have the brand as you know it, but as Coke 0 (zero). Maybe I should look for someone going to the UK these days.
