20s muse: an exercise in reenactment

I am happy to present a collaboration with two talented Romanian women: make-up artist Malvina Ișvan and hair stylist Andreea Constantin. It is true that I have been considered for quite some time a muse from the past or an anachronic figure both due to my passion for vintage clothing and my keen attraction for drama and…

Fashion on film: summer 2017

The end of august 2017 and the beginning of september meant a vacation at the Romanian seaside.  We took our Minolta Dynax 300si, two Fujifilm Color 200 films & our Polaroid P600 camera and went for more of an analog approach to capturing emotions and outfits. The only digital part was us having our mobile…

Ettika: the perks of wearing antique silver handmade earrings

Hello and welcome to Ettika! My first contact with the handmade jewelry brand from Los Angeles, California was through an e-mail I received from their Brand Development Director saying that ‘Ettika loves @dailytutliputli!‘: it tickled my vanity alright and it made me curious enough to check their #ettikareviewteam offer.

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 wearing Ioana Ciolacu this winter & forever

Party season: from November 2016 to January 2017 My favorite dress from Romanian designer Ioana Ciolacu’s CAPSULE AUTUMN WINTER 2016 collection is [unsurprisingly] the emerald green pleated Jaguar number.

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…

I’m not gonna drown in my own blue sea

Fiecare colț al orașului, fiecare colț al camerei taie și mai adânc, rupe, sfâșie, sfârâie, mă topește și tot ce știu să fac e să mă plimb pe străzi cu umbrela roz de douăzecidedolari până se face seara și mă întorc în cămin și mă păcălesc în fiecare seară cu o țigară mentol și o…
