V Day: value yourself & I love Viv day, mmkay?

This is us. We are people in love & we also love each other deeply. Love happens every day & we celebrate our love every chance we get. This picture speaks volumes about us as a couple. We are a #powerfulcouple rather than just a #powercouple. We are mostly good for each other, personally & professionally. #wecreate. For love…

This is NOT a BEAUTY post|ART on #dailytutliputli with Irina Gache & Raluca Roşu

The current project hosted on dailytutliputli.com is actually a BIG SELF-PORTRAIT of Raluca Roşu, at first not even intentional and/or conscious and now fully conscious and especially intentional (!). I talked about it every chance I got: interviews & all other sorts of press. Of course, this means that it encompasses many other sub-projects, some connected…

Streets of LOVE: Pinberry Shirts X Skindeep

I love WHITE SHIRTS and I cannot deny it. The first gift Vivian Dünger ever gave to me was his vintage YSL classic white shirt. I bought many before and after this great moment, but this particular shirt stays with me forever. I used to wear it all the time, but then I got scared: what if…

This is a Goodbye, Girls! think piece. illustrations by Nina Cosford  Girls: the beginning of a beautiful friendship Girls entered my life in my first year of graduate school. Just like Hannah Horvath, I had graduated college. However, I was less sure about me being a writer…

#yoursdaily: March 2017

Better review an entire month than just a week, right? March 2017 felt more like a week anyways & when it came to fashion, it served as a fuel for a Spring I know will end before it begins. Yes, #fashionweek(s) happened, but I don’t do THEM. I’ll do THEM when I can do it for…

Alexandru Simedru: float like a butterfly, sting like a bee

Although Miss Tutli-Putli is mostly buried in her second hand clothes & busy going from thrift store to thrift store, she would be fooling herself not to see fashion as being constantly informed by all the talented and hard working designers out there. Street style is crucial, but the magic happens where this meets the already established…

Mama Bear 2017/ Louis XVI in Reebok

Bright blue faux fur – check. Bright pink vintage Reebok sneakers are worn within a Louis XVI aesthetic & silhouette, you’re welcome. I am not saying…

NYE 2016, a revolutionary road affair

  NYE 2016 caught us in bed most of the day. We then had our last photo shoot of the year. I felt the need to tell a story about the possibility of happiness. I’m a champ, after all, having fought many battles within myself. Anxiety and depression were two ugly heads following me for the last three…

Miss Tutli-Putli’s guide to faux furs

  It’s cold, but you don’t want animals to suffer for you comfort. The solution is obvious: buy faux fur coats, as many as you can and in every possible and obnoxious color! I own a wide selection of faux fur coats, most of them bought from second hand stores in Bucharest. This particular coat…

The fashion of characters, by Irina Gache

Where could one wear this outfit? As my friend and artist Irina Gache named the first picture “The fashion of characters”, I could not help but wonder if wearing a character is different from  wearing a costume and not being yourself. First, there is no true, essential self to begin with. People are constantly becoming…

This Fall on Instagram (2016)

Last week I wore my new fake fur coat and hat. Monday felt like September, but we’re not here to talk weather. Or are we? Surely, the 4 seasons and Bucharest have not met in a while. I am not used to it and all I can wish for is a walk-in closet with garments…

#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…
