EN: Lately I’ve been thinking quite a bit about how I dress now vs how I used to dress before starting this blog. It’s unbelievable how much my style has changed during the last 3 (or 4) years and what a huge difference there is between me now and me a few years ago. For a start, I used to wear very unflattering, baggy clothes (maybe someday I’ll show you pictures; that should be interesting). A lot of black. No heels. Jeans! I lived in my flared jeans. And now… How many times have you seen me wearing flats? How many times have you seen me wearing black? How many times have you seen me wearing jeans? Yes, you could probably count them on the fingers of one hand. I guess I’m just not that person anymore – which can get pretty scary sometimes, I feel (and want to be) different in every possible way, no matter how much dissaproval or rejection I get. And blogging had a lot to do with this (style wise). I mean, if it wasn’t for this blog and what I’ve learned through it, I’d probably be wearing this kind of comfortable, cute but not very exciting outfit on a daily basis (I’m not implying that I dress up just for the sake of blogging, what I’m saying is that I wouldn’t be enjoying it as much as I do if I hadn’t developed this passion). Anyway, not sure why I’m pointing these things out particularly in this post, I guess it’s just something different for a change.
And now onto the outfit itself… A few days ago I went to visit this outlet shopping center and decided to dress as comfortably and as lightly as possible since the weather is really hot in Romania at the moment (not that I’m complaining or anything). So I wore these wide legged jeans that I thrifted last winter for $3, a babydoll top (I like how feminine these tops are, I think I should get more) and the newest addition to my prints collection, a silky Primark shirt. How gorgeous is that floral print? (second photo) I loved it so much that I also bought the matching skirt, a pretty maxi one. They don’t look that cute together, or at least I don’t like a head to toe look but I’m sure I’ll get a lot of wear out of them this summer…
RO: Kika in stanga mea, Progesul in spate, da, eram intr-o zona periferica. Mai exact in Militari, in centrul comercial West Park, cica sa vad outletul. “Fashion House Outlet Centre” – suna promitator (folosesc trecutul), deci m-am dus entuziasmata in ideea ca mamă, sa vezi ce plec eu cu sacosele pline de aici.
Aiurea, a fost un rateu total. Magazine putine si majoritatea orientate pe articole de sport, plus, problema cea mai mare, preturile deplasate. Acum…ok, poate nu ma incadrez eu in publicul tinta (trening, adidasi si alte alea…NU) dar erau si cateva magazine (Mango si vreo doua cu pantofi) din care poate as fi cumparat. Asta daca preturile n-ar fi fost la nivel de colectie actuala, ci chiar de outlet, cum mi se pare normal. Si sunt doua variante: ori nu inteleg eu conceptul de outlet, ori sunt aia picati in cap. Ca exemplu, o pereche de sandale (al carei brand nu-l mai retin dar era ceva gen Aldo, deci high street!) care mi-a placut, costa 420 de ron. Redus de la 570. Sunt astia zdraveni la cap? Erau si lucruri mai ieftine dar nimic ce m-ar putea face sa topai intr-un picior si sa cumpar fara ezitare. Repet, n-am intrat in toate magazinele dar nici nu cred ca mai ma duc pe acolo vreodata. Dezamagire totala.
Voi ati cumparat vreodata de acolo? Cum vi s-a parut?
Tinuta e genul meu de comfortabil, relaxare, materiale subtiri si racoroase, fara prea multa bataie de cap. Jeansii i-am cumparat undeva in iarna dintr-un second iar bluza in dungulite am luat-o din Miniprixul din Otopeni acum cateva saptamani (ala outlet!). Camasa insa e cea mai proaspata achizitie, cumparata din magazinul de la Cismigiu (cele din Bucuresti stiti sigur despre ce vorbesc), la pachet cu o fusta maxi acelasi model. Purtate impreuna arata ca o pijama – si cred ca o sa am nevoie sa-mi fac jupă pentru fustă – dar au un imprimeu asa primavaratec si frumos ca n-aveam cum sa nu le iau acasa. Cat de curand va arat si fusta 🙂
