Backless

I am very happy that one of my friends, young designer, is helping me with my mint dress for the college reunion I was (I think) telling you about. So, not only that she drew some sketches for me together with her teacher, but she is also helping me to find the perfect mint silk and have a splendid dress in the end…And I was speaking with her all morning about backless dresses and the perfect cut in order to match the shape of the back. “We are not all models, so I do not have a perfect back” I told her and she said: “Let me tell you something: skinny backs are not the best of, it depends on many other things, for example if you are a sportive person, than your back can be too wide or if you have wide hips, that the cut has to stop above your hips”.  So, what do you want to see when you are looking at a person wearing a backless dress? Or do you like backless dresses?

Have a lovely weekend! I’ll see you on Wednesday as I’m having a long weekend, we are celebrating in Romania the 1st of May – the Working Day (by not working, wink)!

Floral

I know everybody is fed up with the floral trousers of Olivia Palermo and her leopard shoes, but if we take only the trousers and match them with other shoes/sandals, I think is a marvelous idea, right? Looks who’s talking, the girl that almost never wears prints. I bought 3 pairs of trousers last week, no prints though :(. Maybe I have not found the perfect floral trousers yet. My favorite are Jessica’s trousers that I have already posted (this ones) and the last ones, photo with the lilac clutch.

Lilac

How is spring treating you these days? Here, the sun is lovely, I had half a day for outdoor activities and I enjoyed every ray of sunshine (a little bit of tan would not be that bad, wink). I love the lilac flower, not just the color, but the smell of the street where people have chosen lilac for their garden. This is a great idea for the front of the building where you live, don’t you think so?

The weather forecast is awful for today, storm and heavy rains, but until now it is perfect. If the rain comes, it’s ok with me, I am planning a bar theater night. Enjoy your day!

Opinions

What about stockings and open toe pump or sandals? There was a time when everybody was saying: “Never stockings and sandals!“. I am still one of those persons. But there’s no rule without exception, so if I were to wear such short  grey or beige or burgundy stockings (and I have a lot of them, I told you my obsession with Calzedonia, I even avoid now driving near the shop on my way to the office not to be tempted to stop) like Lily Cole and a crazy colored dress, having a coffee in Paris or Rome, wink, I would dare to have my sandals on, if not, no way! For example, I will never wear long classic black stockings with sandals. I chose this photo because it entirely represents my image of this combination. There is no other way, for me, of course, to use stockings with sandals. So, I am still a classic or just normal?

In my garden

I wish I had a lot of flowers in my garden. When you read garden, please think about wardrobe and when you read flowers think about dressesEven if we had some bad weather this Easter (a lot of rain, but warm enough for the flower print dresses and leggings), I was not unhappy. My mood is usually depending on the weather outside, but this time I did not care about the rain, I enjoyed my long and rainy weekend, wink.

I hope that all of you who celebrated Easter this last weekend had a marvelous time.
