All wrapped up




MUSTARD



Great for the casual outfits. Beautiful to wear it at school, definitely you stand out of the crowd. You can wear it with your army boots, jeans, and scarfs in neutral colors.

One day in Vegas

Vegas.com liked my Sunflower post and invited me to participate at #CosmopolitanChic blog challenge. It was like "the coolest person you've ever met invites you to a party. Time for me to shine. For Vegas!"
A day in the gorgeous Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas Hotel. A place for all the pleasures that Las Vegas has to offer. Luxury, Spa, gambling, shopping, business centers. The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas loves dogs, so you can take your four legged friend with you! It's even the perfect place for a wedding in Vegas!
I couldn't decide on only one outfit. It's an ideal opportunity to highlight a few outfits.
Three outfits, three places full of glam and color.
It's my day in Vegas and have the freedom to wear any.
***
Celor de la Vegas.com le-a placut postul meu Sunflower si m-au invitat sa particip la #CosmopolitanChic blog challenge. A fost ca si cum ''cea mai cool persoana pe care o cunosc m-a invitat la petrecere. Era timpul sa stralucesc! Pentru Vegas!''
O zi in superbul hotel Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. Un loc unde intalnesti toate placerile pe care Las Vegas le are de oferit. Lux, Spa, jocuri de noroc, shopping, business centre. Cei de la Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas iubesc cainii, asa ca iti poti lua patrupedul cu tine! E locul perfect chiar pentru o nunta in Vegas! 
Nu m-am putut opri la un singur outfit. E o ocazie ideala pentru a pune in evidenta cateva tinute.
Trei outfituri, trei locuri pline de glam si culoare.
E ziua mea in Vegas si am libertatea sa port orice.

Pleated dress

Does it happen to you to not genuinely like a trend or simply a type of clothes or shoes and, after some time, to want them in any shape as they may come?
That happened to me with pleated skirts. I used to not like anything about them. And I thought that there were only some of them left strayed in my grandmother's closet. Later on, I've seen them wandering around the streets and I used to think that some women are just too nostalgic. And then... I have no idea what happened! My mechanisms got deranged, night became day, and the first thing I would notice in a shop window were these awesome pleats.
It all started with this dress!

Dorothy




...Yeah, I'm just a little bit caught in the middle
Life is a maze and love is a riddle
I don't know where to go, can't do it alone
I've tried and I don't know why

I'm just a little girl lost in the moment
I'm so scared but I don't show it
I can't figure it out, it's bringing me down
I know I've got to let it go and just enjoy the show
Just enjoy the show..

Feeling good in the right clothes

I was telling you that, after my surgery, I wouldn't fit my clothes. It's also true that, since I started feeling ill, I couldn’t even go to the gymI am not making excuses for myself. I have too many kilos I'd like to get rid of, I do not like dietsI am lazy and occasionally I like to have a beer with my partner. Terrible, I know ... but I militate for world peace. Seriously now, the above mentioned, along with less pollution, would be the best things that could ever happen to us...
Looking through my clothes I sumbled upon this dress that saved me and I remembered something I've noticed lately quite often, even on the blogosphere.  That not all of us have perfect measurements it's not a tragedy - there are clothes for all sizes and we can be beautiful anyway. But please, I beg of you, wear the right size! Few things are worse than a woman with some extra kilos bursting out of her clothes! It is not shameful to ask for a bigger size. Clothes glued to a body that's not in best of shape, it's not sexy, it's vulgar, distasteful and very unaesthetic.

Sunflower



As you can see, here is still summer but the season is almost over. Our hotels will be closed soon, and we have to cross a long break. In a way I'm glad I have the chance to wear the clothes that I can’t wear in the summer but time passed really fast and I was not expecting winter to come so soon.Thinking about the empty city, the buses that will run even more rarely, about the wind that will keep me inside the house for several days, I felt the need to wear bright colours.

Army


      Military style is slick and adjusted to Urban in a very modern way, with many green tones and khaki, dynamic cuts, boots and metal accessories, parkas, jackets and dresses inspired by military uniforms.
      If you think it doesn't suit you, try plaid, khaki and hardware detailing and choose the preppy styling with plenty of layers. It's less military precision but pretty and practical. Play around, you have all the freedom!
It was a good pretext to show you my new boots which I am very proud of. More than one year now, I wanted a cut out pair of shoes and finally after long searches in stores and online, I found the perfect pair for me. Not too grunge, just perfect for casual outfits with dresses or jeans.

Sa tinem pasul cu tendintele.

Navigam printre fotografii cu noile colectii de toamna- iarna. Am admirat multe iar despre cateva am spus ca sunt adevarate opere de arta. Anul acesta, sunt propuse de la colectii cu imprimeuri si forme complicate, pana la colectii " back to reality", care imbratiseaza articolele din garderoba pe care asteptam cu totii sa le purtam.
Acum urmeaza partea cea mai grea pentru noi...Noile tendinte se raspandesc precum mirosul de mancare in desenele animate, si in curand nici un outfit nu va mai fi complet fara cateva piese pe care trebuie "neaparat, dar nu cu orice pret", sa le avem. Carrefour a lansat colectia de iarna TeX, si ne vine in ajutor cu preturi dintre cele mai bune. Iata articolele mele preferate, in doua outfit-uri cool, pe care de-abia astept sa le incerc.


Get the look:
Pantaloni: TeX
Pulover: TeX
Ghete: TeX
Geanta:aici
Palarie: aici

White shirt & beautiful necklace

Here I am once again, alive... well, maybe a little injured, but recovering. I have undergone a surgery, I took my first steps again, I went through things I couldn't imagine before.
About it all, I hope to write one day especially for those with the same health issue and going through the same experience. Now, the most important thing is that I feel better as the days go by. I took the opportunity and during my daily walk around the house I snuck a few photos. It really helps a lot after a week nailed to the bed.
The necklace I got as a present from my sister and I tried to find something simple to highlighted it, but to be comfortable at the same time. Until my abdominal muscles will recover I'm the proud bearer of a four months pregnant-like belly, so my outfit options are limited in some way. 
I want to take the opportunity to thank those who have stood by me for the last few weeks. It seems best to do it now while my hair is decent, I'm wearing eyeliner and I'm not as pale as usual. 
Love you!

Dots


I won't tell you I' m feeling wonderful, because I had better days. But what I can tell you, is how good it felt wearing such a short dress... Maybe it's a sign I turned 30. Again. 
I couldn't sit still for a second to the despair of my boyfriend struggling to take some reasonable shots with a camera that would not focus.

Africa- Mix and Match

Africa has always fascinated me. I feel that everything that comes from there has a special scent, that their music carries me in a mystical dance across the dunes. The people of Africa have a rich culture and this is reflected in their daily clothing. Each culture preserves its ethnic and distinctive features.
Whether it's about style or design, their clothing reflects the personality of beautiful, strong women and each piece of cloth symbolizes the characteristics of a particular culture. The patterns and the fabrics are simply wonderful; each design is symbolic and has a hidden meaning. African clothing styles thus succeed in reflecting the community, location, social status, beliefs of indigenous citizens and gain popularity in fashion shows worldwide.
I may not know much about symbolism, but I hope that I managed to be at least decent...

Kamea and Chihuahua

Today I am wearing a dress I thrifted for a few euros from a local store and I am lucky enough to have some time for a few shots.
I remember surfing the fashion blogs some years ago and seeing so many expensive brands and not daring to dream about my own blog.
A beautiful style does not mean expensive clothes. You can dress well, you can be beautiful, fashionable, even if you make your own clothes or buy them at second hand shops.
So, my dear, if today you find yourself with a low self esteem, I write for you to know that you can do it, too.
I am known among my friends as a bargains hunter ... maybe it's a talent I have developed over time.
If I have a budget for shopping, I prefer the sales period,
Many times I have been lucky to find that and the last available pair of  some shoes I loved was my size and reduced with 70%. I  would give up any day any Mall in Dubai for a bazaar in Morocco.
I have no problem to look for a vintage item in a charity shop. It's a whole adventure and you'll be amazed what you can find there.
I'm exchanging clothes with my girlfriend whenever we get bored of something and I'm receiving donations also (hahaha!)...
Cheers to Alexia, as she added a few pounds and she had to donate me a bag full of goodies!
Aaah, and sometimes I steal from my sister <3.

Preppy match

This look is very much like what I wear every day to work. Minus the skirt lenght. The preppy style has made ​​its mark on the way I dress, maybe since the time of my first job. From Ivy League school campuses, this style has come to be reflected in the wardrobes of  professional women and in several of the major desingners' collections. Classical ensembles, often worn by women entrepreneurs on the East Coast and not only, include tailored skirt suits,low heels,wrap dresses,silk or cotton blouses and exquisite jewelry. Such clothing often includes elements drawn from typical preppy style like nautical stripes, pastel or equestrian details. Baseline examples of the preppy style include Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Gloria Guinness, Babe Paley, Slim Keith or CZ Guest- all women whose style is often referred by designers.

Stripes walking free near Cape Greco

Hello, everyone! Welcome summer!
It has been a while since I last posted and I rushed today to upload a short post. 
On my friend's birthday, I spent a beautiful day by the sea, so I got the chance of taking some shots. The outfit is simple and confortable, perfect for a day outdoors.
I am beeing generous with the photos because I know for sure you will enjoy the scenery. They are taken somewhere near Cape Greco, Protaras, Cyprus. If you intend to visit, do not write your name on the tables! It's not fashionable here :)
See you soon!

Mirror lenses and mustard



I don't always follow trends. When it comes to what we wear, we dress according to our personality and/or the mood we're in. I like to know what the suggestions of the great designers are and, occasionally, some match my style or they suit me at first sight. Today I chose two of the options you will see increasingly often this summer: the mirror shades and mustard. If the sunglasses didn't convinced in "The Matrix", now you can find them in various shapes and I'm sure you can find a pair to your liking. They look good with casual, bohemian outfits, at summer festivals and especially on holidays together with vaporous dresses. If you go with mustard it change your day - it's a cheerful colour, full of positive energy. For top results pair it with dark colours in order to highlight it. Also try matching mustard with dark chocolate, burnt orange, turquoise or emerald green to give an autumn touch to your outfit, with a perfect harmony of colours. 
If none of these suit you, try wearing a smile. It will look gorgeous on you!

Earth Day

Hi everyoneNice to see you againI hope you are well and that you all had a wonderful Easter! 
On April 22nd we celebrate Earth Day. It is the day when people from 190 countries around the world, unite and demand support for environmental protection. Every year they plant trees, collect garbage, save energy. A nice example and also a warning sign.
I tried, in my own way, to remind you that nature is beautiful and we should appreciate her beauty today and every day for that matter.
We can all help more and more often.
How do you feel about recycling clothes?

Quilted

Easter is coming and I would not have missed the opportunity to wish you a Happy Easter and thank you for all your support over a nice year.
I will not give you advice on what you can cook on this occasion (there are others who do a thousand times better than me), or even what to wear.
Whatever you might choose, trust yourselves!

The catcher in the rye

I love things that have a story to tell! 
The story of Holden Caulfield, told with shaded humor by Salinger, I received it at the exact age when I needed to know that I wasn't the only one who was frustrated,  betrayed in love, polite when I was feeling the need not to be... It was back when I still thought that I can change the world.
I remembered the novel not by accident and by this means I would like to thank a pretty lady. 
I had the rye field and a dress since i was eighteen.
My turn to be the catcher...

Urban Safari

Hello, pretty ladies! I am pleased to tell you today about the safari jacket. It was designed to be worn by British soldiers in countries with warm climates, like India.
 Later, in the twentieth century, it became very popular as it was practical and easy to wear on adventures in the African savannah.
The classical model is long sleeved, light color so not to retain heat, has a "trench style" belt, four plus pockets and shoulder straps.
Today I'm wearing a Bush Jacket, the short sleeve version of the Safari Jacket. This trend caught, being especially useful to photographers who could use the pockets for lenses, film and other accessories. It seems difficult to insert it in an outfit for a day out and even more so with high heels, but challenges make us more creative.
Hope you enjoy it! At least I did, wearing it! ;)
Have a great day!

Hearts

My heart is like a train station where trains arrive or depart. Some remain forever. It is difficult to comprehend how, in such a small place, you can store places, countries even, years, moments, colours, fragrances, dear people or pets. Sometimes, bits of it remain in a beautiful place or with people we love, that are far away. 
They say "home is where your heart is" ... but if your heart is filled with places? A piece of it maybe got stuck on a mountain top where you looked into the distance and forgot to breathe for a few seconds ...
 My heart is here, where I love;  is with my family;  is in Italy, with my sister which I miss so much; it's back in my country;  it's in all the countries that I lived in and been happy; is wherever the dog that has been my best friend is.
Make Home, wherever you are and enjoy the nostalgia of walking through each room of your heart! 
Love, Nelly.

Christening by the sea


Greetings! I hope you are all well and you have a wonderful begining of spring! Last week, our friend Constantinos' son was christened and we were invited to take part to this great event. 
 
Weather, location, everything was lovely! I lived with excitement the little one's baptism, I met again dear friends, and I ended the day with a nice walk on the seashore.

Nomad



The gypsy look, otherwise known as a bohemian feel, is a daring comeback in the fashion industry. This event has as guidelines some fashion setters from the 70's. A rebirth of the hippie culture, beyond fashion, this trend is a state of mind and a way of life for others. Long dresses, cut jeans and  flower prints are only some of the main features found at Woodstock. Now, theese trends can be seen on the streets, especially during the summer. It is a style that inspires me freedom and lust for life.

DIY boots and necklace


Hello, darlings!
Today's post is somewhat special because it's starring the boots I myself have customized.  Surfing through blogs I have encountered similar models and I wanted to see the cost. Around 400$ !... I decided to make them myself :)
I had a pair of boots I was about to throw away, just perfect to sacrifice! It took a little work, and I was also lucky that there is a shop in the area where you can get all kinds of accessories, but it was the greatest satisfaction in the end. I just love them!
The rest of the outfit: inspired by Boho style, a style that i think it suits me and that I like very much. The sweater ... I insisted on wearing it, though it adds about three extra kilos to the at least six I have to spare!... 
And finally, the necklace I've put it together from the leftovers, after finishing the boots.
I hope you like it. 
See you soon!

Essay about a rainy day

I don't know about where you're at, but on this island it rains quite rarely. And the last few years, even less. So whenever it happens, to me is reason for joy. I was getting tired of wearing my rubber boots only when I was washing the front porch. It's true that, for this session, I got lucky that it didn't rain as heavy as it ussualy does...

  See you soon!

Perforated top, lace origami skirt & New Year retrospective!



I learned that I am a mosaic composed of the people I met, of the choices I made and of my actions, that I draw my own portrait and that people find it enough to believe you

Lilac

  The first post of the year... 
Photos were taken in Protaras, 10 km from home, on one of the shopping days for New Year's Eve. Even if it's winter, I don't miss an opportunity to wear a little bit of colour. The trench, I rescued it for a few euros about four years ago from a trifted shop in Paralimni. I paired it with a vintage Topshop blouse and I kept it simple by completing the rest with black. Voilà! Hope you like it.
