Guler detasabil Alice&Sara angel wings (1)

My inspiration comes from the weirdest sources you can imagine. Right now I’m reading The Inheritance Cycle (I already went through Eragon and Eldest, currently on Brisingr and then on to Inheritance – the last book of the cycle) by Christopher Paolini. And because I’m really into dragons  and fantasy in general (I have very mature interests:)) I started creating this detachable collar with dragon scales in my mind. Not the most obvious line of thinking, but it’s just how my mind works. It ended up looking more like two colorful angel wings, but I'm in love with it .

Basically this amazing  Peter Pan collar is made out of little pieces of colorful leather (fuchsia, purple, pink and soft cream) that I designed, cut and hand saw myself in an angel wing shape with an ombre effect. I then added small black beads to finish of the look. The base is leather as well! 
It can be worn over your favorite shirt, blouse, sweater or dress – it gives an instant whimsical and feminine feel to any outfit. Every collar has a ribbon tie back to allow for adjustable tightness. 
If you want one, just write me and I will add it in my Etsy shop for easy purchase.

Guler detasabil Peter Pan aripi de inger/dragon – 130 lei / VANDUT
Descriere: Tocmai am terminat acest guler detasabil cu totul si cu totul special dupa ce am lucrat la el forever. In momentul de fata citesc seria Eragon (se numeste de fapt “The Inheritance Cycle scrisa de Christopher Paolini -  sunt la cartea numarul trei din serie - “Brisingr” – stiu, este o lectura foarte matura:)))) – ca si mine de altfel) asa ca am fost inspirata sa creez ceva pornind de la ideea solzilor de dragon – gulerul handmade care a iesit seamana mai mult cu niste arpi de inger, dar mie imi place mult de tot.
Practic acesta este un guler detasabil/colier tip guler realizat dintr-o multime de bucatele de piele colorata in nuante de fucsia, mov, roz si crem pal si decorat cu margele negre de diverse marimi cusute manual pe o baza de piele. Se prinde la spate cu o bentita ajustabila din saten. Il puteti purta peste bluze, rochii, camasi tricouri, pulovere si va da oricarei tinute un plus de cool, feminitate si culoare. La cerere il pot realiza si pe alte combinatii de culori! La cerere pot face unul asemanator (este suficient sa trimiteti un  email)!

Colier statement din piele si dantela

This beautiful statement necklace is a very special, one of a kind piece that I designed and hand saw myself. For this particular piece I used a scalloped (black) faux leather base decorated with different sizes, delicate roses made out of pink lace. This necklace is very versatile and can be worn to dress up comfortable day outfits or compliment special party outfits. The length of the necklace can be easily adjusted because of the long black satin ribbons. Check out more of my work in my Etsy Store and don't hesitate to contact me if you're interested in some of my handmade accessories or retro clothes!

Arata si mai bine in realitate!

Reinvent yourself

I’m often asked for tips about how to wear vintage clothes without looking old-fashioned. The best advice I can give is the one thing I always use myself: mix old and new, low and high - the result will always be original. The secret is really something very simple: modern accessories and shoes will always make a vintage piece stand out and look modern again.

Take this outfit for example: the dress is a simple retro piece that I styled with a burgundy belt to give it a flattering shape and a very actual pair of boots to reinvent the whole look. This way I avoided an outdated get up (that’s sometimes the case when wearing an all vintage outfit) or looking like the window mannequin of a high street store (which is the other face of the coin when you combine one too many on trend items in your outfits).

If you’re not a lover of high heels and statement jewelry are not really your style than you can always wear a new pair of shades. These Marc Jacobs sunglasses for example are both timeless and chic and will elevate any get up you have in mind. Then again I’m a die-hard fan of sunnies and a true believer in their power of making anything cool.

Maxi tie-dye effect

I always thought looking hot is not about revealing as much skin as possible but more about showcasing your best features and leaving some room for imagination. A bit of mystery is something that can go a long way!

That’s the reason I really love this maxi dress – the body hugging shape it’s subdued because of the length. But what really does is for me is the low back cut – that’s definitely one of my favorite details ever.  There’s something about a long sleeved dress with a backless opening that makes me incapable of saying no! I’ll buy two of those, please!

And then we have the tie-dye print in dark shades of black and grey that adds the modern edge every girl need. The only thing that could possibly make this hotter would be some body jewelry from and yeah, a very long pair of feathered earrings. 

And what do you know, I’m actually wearing those, in fact I made them myself. In case you’re interested, write me and I can add them in my Etsy Store.

Ornamente pentru Craciun/Fulgi de zapada origami

The first days of December always find me in a festive mood and give me an excuse to start brainstorming Christmas decorating ideas. This year I’m planning on something a bit more original – especially when it comes to my Christmas tree.

Basically I’m going to fill it with a bunch of these adorable origami snowflakes I made myself using colorful tulle. I’m not yet decided on the color – should I go with a more traditional color scheme (green and red as these I already made) or how about pink and maybe royal blue snowflakes in a white Christmas tree? I’m leaning towards the second one! Who am I kidding? Is going to be pink and blue for sure!
Check out more of my work in my Etsy Store!

Bentita Alice&Sara cu tinte si trandafiri (auriu si negru)

I’m a big fan of rock&roll influences in fashion and I love making beautiful things with a little bit of edge. I created this particular one using a simple black headband, light weight gold spikes with a black base and delicate black roses (made out of textile paper that I hand dyed myself) for an amazing and unexpected contrast. This is a stunning statement headpiece that mixes rock vibes with innocence, very playful and cool. You can buy it from my Etsy Store! 

Bentita Alice&Sara cu tepi si trandafiri (auriu si negru) - 50 RON
Descriere: Bentita neagra cu tepi auriu discret si trandafiri din hartie textila vopsiti manual in negru. Nu m-am putut abtine, contrastul este prea reusit, in plus cand vine vorba de accesorii pentru par, le prefer pe cele cu multa personalitate.:)))).
