My civil ceremony dress - the making of

My civil ceremony dress is ready :) and I'm very happy with the outcome.
I'm gonna be a 50s queen :)
I think I've told you before that I would have loved to be born in that era.
One thing is for sure: my dress is unique because is my idea combined from a few other images :)
We'll see if there will be any copycats afterwards :)
Google images helped me a lot :) but I'm sorry that I didn't save the source of the images 
that got me inspired.
As you can see I went for the green :) combined with nude.

Enjoy the photos:

This is the dress, the bag and the shoes I'll be wearing:
And the gloves :) - they're a must
Gloves and bag are vintage :)

The actual shade of green is in the picture below:

While it was still a work in progress:

This is the first picture I came across when I searched Google images for inspiration
and I just loved these lovely ladies.
What I kept from this one is the puffiness :) of the skirt and the belt made out of material.
But I made my belt having a bow, cause I love them bows :)

From this one I kept the collar and something from the sleeves - check out this look here

This one helped me because of the buttons:
mine are smaller and displayed closer to the collar 

As for the skirt I took something from a skirt I already have and you've already seen here :)
this is how I came up with the waist line of the skirt

If you want to see me wearing it, you have to keep following my blog :)
I can assure you that you won't be disappointed :)

Long live the green!

The return of the dots

You can never have too many dots, I'm sure of that :)
And of course you can never go wrong with a delicate lace top combined with the dots.
What you don't know is that this skirt is made by me :) last year during a sewing course.
This is actually my second skirt ever made. I haven't shown you the first one I made
but I'll do that in the posts to come.
I also had an admirer while I was taking these pictures :)
You'll see :)

Enjoy the photos:

My lovely humble admirer :)

Sad eyes was just so cute :)

I'm wearing:

Skirt: self made
Top: Atmosphere
Sandals: Zara
Bag: H&M

Long live the green!

Old school style - anniversary post

This is my 100th post and I'm very happy to write it :)
Being anniversary and all that, I chose to wear a classy outfit with some vintage elements,
which better represent the vintage side of my blog.
I hope you enjoyed my posts so far and I promise to keep sharing with you my outfit ideas :)
and also my home decor and DIY projects.
Given the fact that I'm getting married this summer, I'm very happy to tell you
that there will be a few posts with my wedding dresses and other cute wedding related stuff :)
So be prepared for some cuteness :)
The wedding dress is not green :) - I've been asked that :)
But the one for civil ceremony is very green :)

Till then, enjoy this lovely outfit. Besides the lovely dots, I must say that I am
in love with the pants. They don't make them like this anymore and I was very happy
to find them at an online vintage store which I highly recommend: The Dearhunters

Enjoy the photos:

I'm wearing:

Pants: vintage
Blouse: H&M
Bag: vintage
Shoes: Musette

Long live the green!

Fashionable ride

If Saturday I went to the mountains, on Sunday I went for a ride on my green bike :)
And what better moment to wear my bike skirt than this :)
I made this lovely skirt from a lovely material purchased from Fabrix.
Not only the skirt is made by me, but also the design of the bike is my very own idea.
The bike was very dull when I bought it.
But now everybody turns their head :)

Enjoy the photos:

The bike

The bike looked like this at first.
Boring, right? :)

I'm wearing:

Skirt: self made
Shirt: random store
Shoes: Poema
Bag: H&M
Hair accessory: handmade

Long live the green!

Fun casual weekend

It was gonna be way too hot in the city this weekend, 
so we decided to go on a road trip to the mountains.
Good choice given the fact that road there was wonderful and the air very refreshing.
Not to mention the scenery which was just amazing.

Enjoy the refreshing photos :)
Aren't Romanian mountain roads just the best? :)
This one is called Transalpina and it is the highest road in Romania - above 2000 m.

The lovely scenery:

The daredevil road in the heart of the mountains :)

Long live the green!
