Retro Chic

Retro Chic
 Have you ever thought of living in the 50's?

Cooking day

Those of you who know me, I'm sure you are laughing through your teeth.
Nevertheless, I assure you that my vegetables mix with chicken and sauce is delicious.
I can not brag that I'm a master chef, but I like to do things with sense of responsibility and that's why they come out great.
Sonny and I are saved this way... while hubi (short name for husband) is traveling for business purpose.

Finally, the ASOS dress is in my arms {on me, in fact...}.
This was also a pretext  to show you for the first time the person behind ZADIN.
I hope you are not disappointed.

Sexy sandals reloaded....

Although I'm a relatively tall girl (183 cm ~ 6 feet), I love to wear heels.  

Add up to the 183 cm height, another 10 cm of heal an we have Gulliver in Lilliput. {:P}. 

But this doesn't matter at all cause heals make legs look sooo appealing... Am I right? Or am I right?

Delete, delete, delete....

Today has been one of those days, when I would have appreciated a delete {or at least an unfollow} button, to make some people disappear out of my sight and out of my life. 

I don't understand how some people can always take a mediocre life, without having any desire to overcome their condition.  

And to be honest, I couldn't care less about others condition if I didn't have to daily interact with them in order to get things done.

And is so damn frustrating when you really try to make things the best you can and they always find a way to ruin that... 

Luckily there are some people who share the same principles as I am... Thank you people who share my common values!

Because of you, life gets easier...

Give and it shall be given back to you!

Thanks to my good collaboration {at least this is how it felt} with Cynthia from Go Chic or Go Home I won a an ASOS, $50, gift card.

Thank you again, Cynthia!

According to the saying give and it shall be given back to you I will donate it to my younger sister, also biggest fan, Mirela, whose birthday it's right around the corner.

She is craving for this wonderful skirt:

In the future, I'm thinking of donating a similar gift card to one of my lucky readers. So, stay tuned!

ASOS dress on the way

Enthusiastic as usual, I'm showing you my, on it's way to me, love at first sight, latest acquisition:

I intend to wear this dress to my 10 year high school graduation reunion, on 12th may.
The sandals I want to wear are a, no name, also love at first sight, past acquisition:

Regarding other accessories, at this moment I don't have many ideas...
I'm thinking of wearing something red or something gold... though I'm opened to suggestions.

Sunglasses show by ZADIN

Ladies and Gentlemen I give you mum's, author of this blog, recently purchased sunglasses.

They are so cool and they fit me great. I'm gonna wear them all the time... even when I go to bed...

Beside my son's humoristic thoughts, I want to add that I'm also enthusiastic about this pair of glasses {You maybe wondering why is that?}.

In the past, I owned other pairs of sunglasses and every time I wore them I had the right look, but I could barely see something.

This is my first pair of glasses that can be worn without making victims...

I usually wear vision correction glasses for nearsightedness (myopia). In other words, I have a very good image if the object is right in front of me, but if the object is far away, I see it blurry. As I'm an every day driver, you can understand why I would make victims, if I were to have a pair of glasses without diopters.

Now, for the first time in my life, I'm able to enjoy a beach view without being blinded by the sun's light.  I have a pair of sunglasses which are, at the same time, vision correction glasses.

Boyfriend jeans know how

First of all, I believe that if someone wants to wear this kind of jeans, has to have the right attitude...

What's the right attitude? I really don't know, but it's the kind of attitude you will see it without knowing it { sounds kinda' funny, but there are things you cannot describe with words}.

Second of all, these aren't the boyfriend's jeans. They are over-sized girls jeans, fitted at the waist, which{as I read} were made popular by actress Katie Holmes.

To detail a little further....

The fit of these jeans is relaxed, and while they sit low but are fitted at the waist, and are loose and relaxed all through the butt, thigh and leg area. Very often these are folded at the bottom into a loose cuff to further accentuate the casual air about them.

If you are not getting a pair of jeans which are classified as ‘Boyfriend jeans’, choose a relaxed fit in a size which is one bigger than your regular size. Ensure that while it fits at the waist, it sits a little lower than usual and the thigh and leg area are loose and roomier. Do not choose sizes which are bigger than one size as they may be too loose fitting and you may end up looking shabby. 

Few tips on wearing these...

Boyfriend jeans are meant for casual wear and so pairing options should be accordingly kept in mind.
  • Rolling up the legs to form a cuff (usually  3- 4inches wide) is common with boyfriend jeans. The rolled up jeans should sit just above your ankles, if you are proud to show off your ankles. On the other hand, if you do not want to show off your ankles, ensure that the rolled up cuffs sit just at your ankles.
  • Boyfriend jeans, like other jeans have many cuts – from bootleg, to flared and the good old straight. The best cut to go or is the straight cut – the look is simple yet, due to the relaxed fit, it is uniform and eye catching at the same time.
  • These jeans are very popular in their ripped avatar. If you prefer wearing ripped boyfriend jeans, try and keep the tops simple – solid color, not too many design features and straight cut. This will help streamline your total look. Do not have very ornate jewelery – a few casual pieces may look great, but again don’t overdo it.
  • Belts are a good way to accessorize your boyfriend jeans/trouser and add a touch of casualness to the outfit too, apart from being functional and holding up you jeans. You could opt for single color leather belts or could try for colorful woven / printed belts as well.
  • As most of the jeans/ trousers are with rolled up legs, they show your ankles and feet off. Wearing interesting footwear therefore adds to the beauty of the outfit on the whole. You could opt for flat pumps, flip flops, gladiators or wedges, platforms. Extreme looks of stilettos, pointed kitten heels, sneakers and boots are best avoided with boyfriend jeans.
Boyfriend jeans look great on all types of bodies, as the fit is relaxed and casual and does not highlight any particular part of your body. Go grab your pair today and create your own look. Just remember, casual chic is the look to be achieved with this pair of jeans! (the original article can be found here)

So, to conclude, anyone can adopt this trend, but my advise is not to try it if you are not comfortable with this style.

Wear something you look good in and not something that looks good {but not on you}.

Here's my choice for a boyfriend jeans outfit....

Sexy sandals

Surfing the internet I couldn't help notice a wonderful pair of sexy sandals.

It seems to me that it's kind of a must have, for this summer and they go along in a multitude of combinations.

I wasn't paying attention to the brand until recently found that they belong to Zara and they are not expensive {thinking of becoming the owner of such a pair of sandals}.

Here they are:

So it seems that pretty soon I'll be going in a work related trip {I would have said business trip, but it sounds too pretentious}.

Where to? Get ready... Astana, Kazakhstan, Asia...

I love when opportunities like these come. It's the perfect way to combine work with pleasure.
In the past opportunities like these led me to see, even though for a short time, Greece and Cyprus.

Having said that, first of all I have to renew my passport and second of all I'm starting the research to find as much as I can about this nation.

Some of the things I found interesting are listed below.

And of course a little fashion sneak peek...

Thoughts in my head...

We constantly think about the future that we forget to live the present... 

Is it that bad?

Well, it depends...

If I knew I'd live to be 100 years... Then it's fine...I'm thinking... In the next three years I' ll be putting the grounds for my personal business, I'll do some traveling, I'll do some renovating in the apartment and maybe I'll try {with some help from my husband} to conceive a sister for my beautiful son {and name her Adina}.
But I said 100 years... Then I can tell my husband, that I see my self near him raising our grandchildren, in a house with a big courtyard and with a beautiful view.

But what if I knew I would die tomorrow... What would I do?
First thing I will try to find a way not to die :)... and if I'd still die... I'd tell, everyone I know, to cherish every moment of their lives, to enjoy the sunrise, to enjoy the sunset, to enjoy the air they breath, to enjoy the beauty of the surrounding nature: the green of the trees, the blue of the sky, the brown of the soil, to enjoy the simple walks in the park, to smile as often as possible, to tell more often the magical words... I love you...

Of course before dying I would do myself all of the above...

Skirts wishlist

 Here is a skirt collection that I made browsing through the asos pages. As you can see I'm a great fan of printed, colored, simple, fishtail, doted, striped, pleated, midi length skirts. They are all very beautiful and so feminine.

Love u! Thank u!

So, I figured that it's time, to show you one reason for being extremely grateful for having the husband I have:
If I could only capture the smell with these pictures...

Everything happens for a reason!

The other day I was trying to figure a way to alter a coat of mine.

I don't like very much a detail that surrounds the waist and I was trying to imagine if I were to take it of... I was going to ruin the coat?

My sister, who was with me at that time, told me... Something woke up in you.. I don't know how you will do it, but kill it.

I took a moment and I told her that my creative spirit has woke up. I suddenly have an urge to write poems, to paint... to put my mark on as many things as I can.

Maybe it's a 2012 year thing...Maybe it has something to do with the dragon year...

I had other bursts of creativity, in the past, but they died rapidly... This time it seems to hang on and {between you and me}I want to keep it as most as I can...
