When Cristina asked me to model for her collection, Decades, I was just about to say NO, when I realized it’s all about fronting your own fears. So i said Yes and joined the girls for a fashion show organized by Cristina for her own brand Potocaliu.

What you can see in the pictures bellow is collection imagined around the decades in fashion, from the ’50s to the 2000s. Each of the girls, happy Potocaliu customers had assigned a decade – I was the ’80s (that’s why you can see me wearing the MC Hammer pants, the over sized shoulders, the glittery jacket).

I must say that, with all the emotions we had, each of us, It really was a lot of fun! And for our first runway, I guess we did a pretty good job!

September essentials

esentiale toamna

I find it somehow difficult to adjust to this lovely weather that’s going on outside, but then again it’s me and some other billion people…So instead of complaining about how sad life is, I guess a small September shopping tour wouldn’t hurt.

It’s been a slow ride until now, but this month begins showing its bad side and I do come to this that the summer romance is gone…(believe me, I know what I’m saying).

Anyway, this fall comes with some lovely outift ideas, with a more simple and clean style approach, very nice colors, elegant & stylish ones like dark green, dark blue, burgundy, etc.

I do love the mom jeans, the fluffy sweaters, the slip ons and the bootie-sandals, the over sized jackets…

So, this is my short September essentials list:

Cool brands: F-troupe

f troupe

I’ve noticed that we all have some very strong shopping habits, focusing on 2-3 favorite brands. I for instance, I’m not that opened to new brands, that’s why I decided to tell you something about my discoveries while surfing the net or traveling.

Today I’ll tell you about a shoe brand I recently discovered, it’s called F-troupe, it’s an English brand, with very original shoe models.

Very different from what we are used with in Romania, I think they are pretty cool and so easy to wear, with a masculine touch, while with the right outfit, they can turn out quite feminine.

You’ve got there some very nice sneakers, slip ons in tweed, brogues and oxfords shoes, in a very English elegant style.

Beauty finds – Fruit Goodness


Even if I’m trying all kinds of new beauty products, I am pretty constant when it comes to my favorite skin and body care products.

I find something that I love and just stick to it, for a looong, loong, time. It’s the same thing with all that contains shea extract. I’ve tried almost anything, from no name brands, to Body Shop and Sabon items.

I recently found a new brand that’s specialized in body care products - Fruit Goodness- new on the Romanian market,but with a history in UK – and chose for the moment the Shea shower gel. Cause it’s still summer, I also gave in to a raspberry body butter, with a very nice perfume,  little fresher than the Shea, ideal for this time of year. I had to try also the Coconut body spray, this being my second favorite flavor, and love the spray version of its package.

Matching shoes – the best idea for Fall

One of my biggest problems at the beginning of every season is the huge shopping list ahead. I don’t – obviously – buy everything I want, but I always set a number of items that top my wish list and I try to buy them.

Not only that I am addicted to shoes, by I have a new obsession – matching shoes. This trend makes me shop all kinds of matching flats & heels, like these beauties I just found in the new Fall/Winter 2014 Musette collection.

My addiction to black & white outfits will definitely need a this pair of slip-ons and stilettos, that will ease my day-to-night outfit decisions.

Animal Print shoes for rainy days

20140627_090350One of my dearest friends always introduces me as ” Leti, the girl with a lot of shoes!”. So I decided to wear proudly my branded name and start showing off some shoes,right?

The rainy weather makes me almost scream of unhappiness, so the last thing I need are bad shoes (witch by the way, I don’t have ;) ).

OK, so after waking up at exactly 6 AM, in a rainy & cold day of June!!!!, I starred about 30 minutes trying to decide what shirt to wear with my black skinny ripped jeans (long description, I know and tough decision also ), so I put on my lovely animal print stilettos and went straight to the office.

The rain fell down so beautiful, I couldn’t resist taking some pictures and posting them of course, on my shoes & other stuff blog.
