wardrobe goodies

Here's what I brought home from last Sunday shopping session!

nice and warm, not too long... a pretty perfect Parka
(the olive color was exactly what I was looking for)

a cozy, chic sweater dress

wedge sneakers 
no words, only emotions 

Consider these tree items as a preview of the next post's outfit. =)

and now... A A Accessories! 

If someone would have told me two years ago that I would buy lots of colorful bracelets, statement necklaces and rings (rings, rings!!!) I truly would have laughed at them! 

And now... I can't stop buying them!

 a hippie/bohemian/indie summer is waiting for me =)

found the earrings (on sale) for my favorite statement necklace 

happy Daniela

a modern day Pocahontas

I simply have to show you one of my winter acquisitions - the extra large plaid jacket! It is a brand new 1992 Coca Cola  "Coke" outerwear piece I found at a vintage store last summer. Ha, how cool is that?! :D
 I guess we were meant to be together!
Somehow this plaid jacket reminded me of one of my favorite Disney princesses - Pocahontas. Perhaps because of the fringes... but this time, the modern hippie Pocahontas has blonde hair and adventures herself in the urban jungle!

Have a lovely Sunday!

Hip Hip Hooray!

Do you remember the "Cherchez la femme" contest held by my favorite printed magazine Elle Romania?

Well, you can all congratulate me, as I'm one of the three winners out of a total of 300 participants! 
 Thank you, Elle!

In the pictures you can see the reward - an Anna Dello Russo for H&M gold charm chain belt! Extravagant and lavish, but cute at the same time! Totally representing what the famous skinny woman not only once said: "Nothing succeeds like excess!".  

happy Daniela showing her styling skills :P

Hugs & Kisses!

All Those Happy Moments

 they say memories are what warm you up from the inside  

Looking through my collection of photos these days, I found an album. "Saturday with my girls" it's called. The pictures were taken about a year ago, on a lovely autumn day. Somehow they took me right back to those happy moments. 

Daniela, Olga & I spent an amazing summer in the States, so we have a lot of memories to share. Daniela is a professional photographer ( and the credit for the pretty pictures goes to her!

Hugs & kisses! 

     my mom's polka dot skirt, I found in grandma's closet :D

Cherish all of your memories!

Nimorinka & Inspiration

Hello, Saturday!

Today, we'll have a different kind of talk, because it's not about what I have or "do" in my wardrobe. It's about what I like and what inspires me. Please don't get me wrong here, it's not alcohol that inspires me, although sometimes it may work ;). It's about people who do great things, who love their country and it's traditions!  

"Monicol" LTD, together with the brands Nimorinka and Fruit2Go represented Moldova at the annual Indagra Food&Drink 2012 Exhibition in Bucharest.   

Nimorinka is an alcoholic drink, which is produced by means of fermentation and double distillation of fruits. This type of drink is known for ages in several countries under different names: Pálinka in Hungary, Schnaps in Germany, Rakia in Balkan countries, tuica in Romania, etc. 
Nimorinka is recommended as aperitif and perfect digestiveConsuming it, you will be pleasantly surprised by the lack of hangover effect, which is due to the technology and product quality. For more information see

An interesting fact is that the King Edward VIIIth claimed that Pálinka mixed with soda was better than whiskey, and mixed with tea was more tasty than rum.

The walnuts together with the wine, fruits and vegetables represent strategic products for Moldova. Prunes, walnuts kernels and dried fruits are Monicol's main products.
