Last weekend I was invited to attend the Fashion Fridays Spring Fair. Iulia did an amazing job, and this time chose as location the renovated bastion in the city center. I a bright and colorful decor, fashion designers greeted the public with their latest creations. We saw great designs, colors, textures, fabrics, amazing jewelry and shoes and of course lots of flowers. On the second day I had two photo shoots where I styled designs from the participants, which I will share in the upcoming posts. The liberty to choose from the items on display made me feel like a kid in a candy store. It was a super fun and exciting experience. Can't wait for the next one!

And we're back to our regular program. This has become one of my absolute favorite mixes of hard and soft, super feminine elements combined with something tough and edgy. I paired my super fun tulle skirt with a delicate lace top and though I must admit the leather jacket was an afterthought, it was the perfect counterpoint. I scratched my beloved Litas on the sides on a recent photo shoot so now I don't wear them as often, but for this particular outfit I wanted to be as high and tall as possible.

Flowers for spring. Shocker, right? I know this must be the ultimate cliché, but I just can't help it. Who cares what designers deem appropriate for us to wear this season, what colors, textures and shapes are in trend? I say if spring comes you better greet it by wearing some flowers. Preferably in your hair, to quote that famous song. Wear as many flowers as you can, and as colorful as possible at least for a day. Tomorrow you can go back to your black suits or whatever you fancy. As per our custom, I am proudly wearing my new mărțișor - a beautiful red dragonfly brooch. Love it!

I've always thought horizontal stripes were very classy and sophisticated. I guess it's because I keep picturing Audrey Hepburn and oh well French people in general. Vertical stripes on the other hand have always had for me that young and playful allure, mostly because I associate them with candy canes and barber poles you would see in old movies. It's no coincidence that I wanted to take these pictures in front of a carousel in the children's park. Unfortunately I've never seen this carousel working, it's always covered up and it's such a shame. My boyfriend said maybe they don't have anyone to run it and suggested I should maybe get a job as a carousel operator. I rode all the carousels I found in Paris so maybe that can count as experience.

I know I am well past that age but I thought I could still pass for a college chick. I only have vague memories of what I wore during my years at the university. Rainbow stripped knee socks, Converse high tops and dresses over jeans come to mind. I definitely did not wear anything even remotely similar to this, which is a bummer. I recently thrifted this college blazer and worn together with a stripped dress and my trusted satchel I could picture myself attending some classes over at Cambridge. The cut out ankle boots are also a new acquisition and I am madly in love with them. I rarely swoon over a pair of shoes but when it does happen, there's no stopping me and I will wear them to pieces.
