High gloss

Picture 004

EN: Fifteen years ago, when I was in first grade, I had a black patent leather rucksac. When I graduated first grade, after pushing my mother for months (and pretty much driving her nuts), she bought me a pair of pink, patent leather shoes. They were so glossy and more like a fuchsia color, with a 2-3 inch heel. I wore them to death, that’s how much I loved them! Then, untill last year, my relationship with patent leather was pretty much over. I thought it was tacky and oh, so passé, so I kept myself away from the high shine material. Never in my dreams would I have thought, not only that I would wear it again but in WHAT form I would wear it.

So a while ago, after seeing online thisskirt from H&M and searching for it mad (no, H&M doesn’t deliver to Romania, you have to go to the store if you want to buy anything), mostly because of its gorgeous color, cut, volume and all that fabric involved, I gave up. It wouldn’t be the first time I see something online and I can’t find it in the stores (at least not near enough), especially with H&M, so I decided to forget about it and save my money for other occasion. And guess what? A week later, I received this comment from a romanian reader (thank you, dear!) telling me where I can find the skirt in Bucharest. So after work, I went straight there, found the bloody thing and bought it without blinking an eye. Trust me, it’s a gorgeous skirt 🙂 But more on that later…

How do you guys feel about patent leather?

RO: Remember, remember? 😀 (Acum o mie de ani) va intrebam aici daca are cineva fusta roz. Cateva dintre voi mi-ati raspuns ca ati vazut-o in Baneasa (much to my dismay as adauga, fiindca evident, NU stau in zona aia) si de atunci am tot zis ca ajung si-o cumpar. N-am ajuns, n-am cumparat-o, imi luasem gandul chiar.

Si apoooooi, am primit comentariul asta: 

Yuhuuuuu! 😀 Hidoasa, nehidoasa, m-am dus s-o caut in Afi chiar in seara aia, imediat ce-am iesit de la munca si Ta-da! A mea e. Marimea e dubioasa (bine, in cazul meu, marimile de la H&M sunt oricum dubioase mereu) si nu se aseaza cum trebuie pe talie dar e rezolvabil cu o curea. Si da, stiu ca imitatia aia de piele lucioasa (patent leather) nu e tocmai la inima oricui dar mie imi place foarte mult croiala, lungimea si culoarea. Deci, neglijabil materialul 🙂


Maine va arat cum am purtat-o. 

Ah, si n-am luat tricoul ala. Mi-a placut, era si ieftin dar avea atata fond de ten pe guler… Pacat. 

P.S. Thank you, Anonymous! :*

    OMG, you found it! :))

    It looks amazing!!! Eu am gasit alta din material lucios (PVC ftw) intre timp, dar parca tot imi face cu ochiul si asta 😀

    Si eu am vazut-o si am murit dupa ea! Daca stiam ca esti in cautarea ei, ti-as fi zic ca e in Afi, dar nu am auzit strigatul tau 🙂

    Eu am varianta Asos a ei http://avetisiperoz.ro/sporty-chic/, ma gandesc inca daca o voi lua si pe aceasta.

    Arata super fusta, cand ma uit de aproape pare cam ciudat materialul, dar pe total e super! S-o porti sanatoasa!

    Ah dar ce frumooos cade! Da, croiala este frumoasa, abia astept sa vad cum ai imbracat-o!
    Oh dar cate haine nu am vazut si eu mizerabile de fond de ten..bleah! Nu suport asa ceva.

    Doamne ce bine iti vine! Eu am ochit tricoul, il vreaaaau!

    Si mie mi-a placut foarte mult croiala fustei, dar materialul deloc 🙁 Probabil ca daca era alt material presimt ca luam la picior toate H&M-urile din Bucuresti :)))
