Spring essentials – clothes you should buy

I believe in smart-shopping rather than a chaotic one. If a couple of years ago I went shopping for whatever, I do my home works very well now, planning what I need, what should I buy according to trends and of course, from time to time, a to-die-for piece comes along, unplanned, but totally necessary :-)

Because every new season comes with a desire to change a bit and adjust to trends, I made a list of the things you should consider buying this spring.

New shoes

20130705_092718

It’s a while since I last told you about my shopping stories – how I spend my time searching the perfect pair of shoes or how I wonder the shops searching the perfect item in the perfect colour only I can imagine.

So today I will present you my new pair of stiletto shoes, I simply adore!

I ordered them in the colour I wanted, a very light nude – rose (I must tell you they also have 2 brothers, the same age and shape, different colour, bt I will tell you all about them a little bit later).

I was looking for a simple pointed stiletto from a long time ago, since I say Pigalle 120 mm by Christian Louboutin. I was searching for a more affordable pair of shoes, since I cannot buy a whole dressing of Louboutins ( these beauties cost me about 60 euros).

The heels measures about 11 cm, they don’t have a platform and…they are as comfortable as they can be for 2 hours, it you don’t walk to match with them…But, that’s the way it goes with high heel shoes I guess.

A new hot spot for shopping -Experiment Point

Experiment Point1

When I shop, I usually shop at malls or online.

I rarely change my shopping habits and when I do it’s because I go to some fashion fairs, some new shop draws my attention on the street or I have to go to a boutique that I love that isn’t on my regular shopping map.

Today we’ll discover together a new shopping place in Bucharest -“Experiment Point“.

Experiment Point describes itself as a unique concept store, animated by key items and accessories, carefully selected and adapted to it’s clients, that are constantly looking for shopping alternatives that show an individual style.

What products will you find @ Experiment Point?

Well, about 17 brands ( fashion & deco brands) and among them : Twin Set, Muubaaa, Kiesel, Charles Philip Shanghai, Quay Eyeware Australia, Mutewatch or Wooden Radio.

Shopping news

rochie-plic-fashionup

The truth is that I just can’t help myself! I did try and almost survived a week or two. I must admit I got trapped again and I did some online shopping. But I did not limit myself to just one piece…no…I had to buy a whole outfit so I can declare myself satisfied.

I stoppped by at Fashionup (one of the biggest Romanian online shops) and started my researches.

I went first for the Moja striped dress, that was on my wish list from a long time ago ( you can shop it here).

I also got an over sized clutch, in a great turquoise shade that I absolutely love, that you can see in the following pictures. For the moment, the clutch isn’t available at Fashionup, but you can find something similar here.

Because I have a passion for long, elegant earrings, I couldn’t resist a pair of golden earrings from Meli Melo, with a touch of vintage look, that I already picture myself wearing with a couple of outfits.

Oh, let’s not forget  the black maxi ring from Meli Melo, the perfect detail to match my outfit!

I’ll let you go do some shopping now, cause I just saw a perfect dress for me, but I promise I’ll come back soon with the newest surprises Fashionup has imagined for us in June!

Paris is not a city, it’s a world

I just got back from a wonderful visit in Paris, for the first time in winter time.

I always find my trips to Paris to short, even if we are talking about a weekend or…a month.

Without saying a cliche, I concluded that Paris it’s unbeatable, it has an unbelievable charm and a way of fascinating each and every tourist.

Before I tell you all about my experience visiting WHO’S NEXT fashion fair in Paris, that took place this days, I will let you  envoy some photos from my Parisian trip.

Victoria 46 s-a mutat pe Dorobanti

Ieri seara, 26 iunie,am avut placerea sa particip la inaugurarea noului concept store Victoria 46, acum prezent la noua sa adresa, din Calea Dorobanti nr. 126-130.

Victoria 46 nu mai are nevoie de prezentare, fiind unul dintre principalele puncte de atractie ale shoppingului de lux din Romania. Magazinul online, victoriaonline.ro, faciliteaza si mai mult experienta fashion, permitandu-ti sa achizitionezi produsele din magazin direct de la calculatorul personal.

Printre brandurile pe care le gasesti la Victoria 46 se numara Alexander McQueen, Christian Dior, Stella McCartney, Isabel Marant.

Iar in privinta pantofilor, pe care stiti deja ca ii ador….nu am cuvinte sa ma exprim. Charlotte Olympia, Sergio Rossi, Gianvito Rossi, Yves Saint Laurent sunt doar cateva branduri pe care le poti admira si cumpara de aici.

Noul spatiu este extrem de primitor, se intinde pe 2 etaje si promite incursiuni extrem de interesante de cumparaturi.

In cele ce urmeaza sunt cateva poze cu o selectie de produse disponibile la Victoria 46, precum si o poza de la evenimentul de ieri, alaturi de prietena mea, Anca.

Vitrinele din Paris

Weekendul care tocmai s-a incheiat a fost extrem de intens pentru mine, pentru ca am dat o fuga la Paris.

A fost pentru a 2-a oara cand am vizitat acest oras si experienta a fost mult diferita de prima data. Spre deosebire de anul trecut, cand eram pe post de turist incepator, acum am patruns mai mult in experienta pariziana : am vizitat cartiere noi, m-am plimbat enorm pe strazi, am vizitat expozitii     (despre care va voi vorbi pe parcurul saptamanii), am iesit in oras, am participat la o “vente privee”, o vanzare privata in cadrul careia tinerele isi expun garderoba pe care nu o mai folosesc si o vand la preturi infime (am vazut piese YSL, Marni, Miu Miu cu 40-70 euro, Manoush la 30-60 euro, etc). Cum am ajuns aici, o intreaga poveste!

Insa pentru primul post despre Paris, va voi invita sa admirati cateva poze cu vitrine celebre. Mie imi face o placere enorma sa cutreier arterele mari de shopping, chiar daca preturile sunt exclusiviste, e o intreaga experienta in sine!

Noua achizitie marca IL Passo

Mi se intampla frecvent sa fac obsesie pentru o pereche de pantofi. Sa fie un “coup de foudre” si sa nu ii pot uita. La fel s-a intamplat cand am vazut acum cateva luni preview-ul colectiei de primavara/vara Il Passo. Am remarcat o pereche de papucei cu toc, multicolori, perfecti pentru tendintele sezonului. Combinatia de lac nude, galben si corai m-a cucerit instantaneu.
Din pacate, nu i-am putut achizitiona pe moment, dar am ramas cu gandul la ei, innebunindu-mi prietenele cu poze si impresii despre ei ( asa cum fac mereu cand vreau o noua pereche de incaltaminte).
Nu mai departe de vinerea trecuta, planuisem o incursiune la Afi Mall pentru a face un ultim shopping inainte de concediu. Chiar la ora pranzului, primesc un telefon din partea Alinei Tanasa ( PR Il Passo), care mi-a propus sa testez o pereche de pantofi la alegere si sa le notez plusurile si minusurile pe care le observ.
Bineinteles ca nu am stat pe ganduri in a accepta si am urmat planul dinainte stabilit, plecand cu sperante mari spre centrul comercial.
O data ajunsa in magazinul Il Passo din Afi, am devenit un client usor sacaitor, proband vreo 4-5 perechi de incaltaminte. Intr-o mana cu un pantof, in cealalta cu altul, iar in picioare cu altceva. Personalul a avut insa rabdare cu mine si mi-a adus pe rand numarul dorit.
Am oscilat putin intre o pereche de saboti ( un must have al ultimilor 2 ani) si achizitia finala, papuceii din poze. Tinand cont de versatilitatea acestora, dar si de faptul ca ii doream de mult, am decis in favoarea lor.
I-am purtat deja de 2 ori si pot spune ca:
– sunt comozi si usor de purtat ( in ciuda temerilor mele initale ca imi vor scapa din picior, neavand elemente de legatura)
– ii pot asorta si unei rochii vaporoase de vara si unei perechi de jeansi scurti
– sunt o piesa vestimentara timeless, se vor purta si la anul si peste 2 ani…si tot asa, fara sa fie demodati
– tocul este mediu, dimensiunea ideala pentru a da o alura frumoasa piciorului si a pastra gradul de confort
– in ceea ce priveste minusurile, nu am descoperit niciunul :)
Detalii:
– chiar si talpa exterioara este din piele
– imi place detaliul auriu de pe talpa, unde apare inscriptionat numele brandului ( o atentie pentru detalii binevenita, inspirata de la branduri internationale de renume)

PS: Am avut un sfarsit de saptamana presarat cu surprize placute, incaltata cu noii mei pantofi :)
