#Yoursdaily: Instagram and everything after

The end of May 2016 and the beginning of June 2016 has been both busy and productive. We managed to move while not missing the important fashion events of the hour. It is a new life I am finding myself naturally dragged into and I cannot complain: great clothes, creative people, spring and summer in…

Let love be: GAY is more than OK

3 million people in Romania want to change the Constitution to benefit their narrow views on what marriage is supposed to be, discriminating once again anyone who is not part of their closest heteronormative circle. I have written a short, but concise and passionate message regarding this matter. Let love be! Our anatomy should not…

My heart is beating like a jungle drum

One of my favorite editorials so far: the styling, the location, the photography and editing just work so wonderfully together and I am finally not too shy to see it or say it. I am proud of how the work me and V. do together is evolving. Enjoy. P.S.: I guess this series makes sense…

They paved paradise and put up a parking lot

  caught between SPRING and SUMMER, thrifting is never easy wearing my perfect vintage Lacoste checkered pants, one of my favourite pairs ever, owned since high school + one of my first vintage finds I guess this is a personal interpretation of the ‘bomber jacket’ trend, but mine is a gift and it looks like…

#yoursdaily: B-sides

  I started #yoursdaily in early January and thought of it as my own alternative to traditional solutions for preventing or eliminating anxiety. I still think it is ‘fashion as (art) therapy’ [for me] even though I have not taken daily pictures. To my surprise though, I took more pictures and did more styling and modelling than…

No glitz, no glamour, no glory: the Met Gala 2016

After a painful browse through all the “exciting” looks from the Met Gala 2016 praised by more or less legitimate online fashion magazines, V. and I have some painful truths to tell. Firstly, it seems like everybody took a great and important theme childishly and lightly: Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology….

SKIN DEEP X DISCOBOLD: I feel feelings for you

Reflecting upon a T-shirt: Inspiration is cool and all and we sometimes unconsciously or more consciously  steal from others when it comes to ideas. However, there are limits to this ‘stealing’ even if the almighty Jim Jarmusch recommends it. There is a thing called ‘intellectual propriety’ and circumstances in which imitation is far from flattering….

Instantly.be: unboxing and review

My experience with Instantly.be, a new and fun digital printing service will be told in English, as it may  also concern foreign visitors of my blog living in Romania . The concept: I see it as a sort of Instagram on wheels as it almost instantly delivers your pictures from Instagram, Facebook or your computer to your home…

Yours daily: flashbacks from the present

There’s something royal about this outfit, especially when it comes to the blood red velvet footwear and the lace white socks. Then there’s this out of place enormous bright red/orange plastic bag that screams : ‘Hey, this is the 21st century after all and plastic used to be a big thing in the ’50s and…
