Happy New Year - Back to Blogging!



Get my look:  
Purse: AbelleJeans: AbelleVest: AbelleShirt: H&M; Boots: Zara

{eng} Hello my darlings,
I’m sitting in front of my computer and I feel shy, as if I'm talking to you for the very first time. It seems like it’s been forever since I last talked to you and I don’t want to let another day go by without blogging.

The holidays have come and gone and I was so incredibly happy when I saw how many of you chose to wear an outfit from Abelle to celebrate these magical days.  Also, I would like to thank all of you wonderful girls who came by the store to say hi and to meet me, you have made each and every one of my days so awesome! 

{ro} Hello dragele mele, 
Stau la calculator, timida... de parca ar fi prima data cand vorbesc cu voi. Asa mi se pare ca este, a trecut o vesnicie de cand nu am mai vorbit insa avem multe de povestit si nu vreau sa mai las sa treaca nici macar o zi fara sa va scriu.

Iata ca au trecut si sarbatorile si m-am bucurat nespus sa vad ca atat de multe dintre voi ati ales sa purtati o tinuta Abelle in aceste zile minunate. Totodata, vreau sa va multumesc si pentru ca odata cu deschiderea magazinului am avut ocazia sa cunosc un numar mare de cititoare ale blogului si fiecare dintre voi m-ati facut atat de fericita! Va multumesc pentru ca ati venit sa ma cunoasteti, sunteti cu adevarat deosebite!




 {eng} Today's outfit is the first thing I wore this year. I don’t know if it’s particularly good that I wore ripped jeans or what that says about me, but frankly I don’t care :). I love them to bits and I look for any excuse I can to wear them! I usually wear them with leggings underneath because it’s pretty cold outside. There’s a tip for those of you like me who love ripped jeans but can’t wear them in the winter. On top I’m wearing my favourite flower shirt to make the whole look more feminine, my black blazer and the latest addition to my closet which I am also in love with – the grey vest! It seems to go so well with everything I try on.

What have you been up to? I would love to hear all about the way you spent your holidays…

Kisses,
Anca

{ro} Tinuta mea este prima pe care am purtat-o in anul nou. Nu stiu cat de bine e ca mi-am pus blugi rupti insa ii iubesc si caut mereu motive sa ii port. Cu toate ca sunt rupti, ii port cu o pereche de dresuri 90 den si ma simt minunat in ei! Partea de sus este alcatuita din mai multe piese cum ar fi camasa mea cu flori, sacoul cu umeri inalti si ultima mea achizitie dupa care sunt innebunita:vestuta mea. Am observat ca merge bine la orice si nu ma mai satur sa o port.

Voi ce mai faceti? Mi-ar placea sa aud cum ati petrecut sarbatorile...

Va pup cu drag,
Anca

Busy Girl

CLOTHING BY:
ASOS: TRENCH (HERE); BOOTS (HERE); ZARA (JEANS); 
ALEXANDER McQUEEN (SCARF)

{eng} The weather has been incredibly cold for the past few days which made it hard to take pictures. I can't believe how much of an impact the weather can have on the blog but as you can imagine it's kind of hard to pose and smile when I'm freezing! We've also been busy preparing for the launch of the first Abelle Boutique location. It's incredible how many things there are to do and how little time we've got. I will be back with more information and pictures soon. Hope you're having a great Monday darlings :).

{ro} Este incredibil ce impact puternic poate avea vremea asupra blogului. A fost atat de frig incat nu puteam sa-mi conving corpul sa pozeze dapai sa mai si zambesc... brrrr! Cred totusi ca de vina a fost si faptul ca am fost foarte ocupati!  Ne pregatim pentru lansarea primei locatii Abelle Boutique in Galati si este incredibil cate lucruri trebuie puse la punct si cat de putin timp avem intr-o zi! As vrea sa va spun ca odata cu deschiderea boutique-ului dorim sa ne extindem si echipa. Asa ca daca esti din Galati si vrei sa ni te alaturi sau cunosti pe cineva care ar vrea sa o faca trimite CV-ul tau la adresa office@abelle.ro si te vom contacta in cel mai scurt timp! Trebuie sa fug pentru moment dar voi reveni cu mai multe informatii si poze desigur. Pana atunci...va las cu o poza inspirationala! O saptamana frumoasa dragele mele!

love,
Anca

Super 8: Gypsy Heart




 






 
CLOTHING BY:
SAS DESIGN; SHOES BY: MY WAY SHOES; MAKE-UP: GABRIELA POPESCU; HAIR: GREEN HAIR STUDIO; MODEL: DRAGAN LAURA; PHOTOGRAPHY: CIPRIAN NECULAI  

{eng} The last theme of our project was gypsy clothing and I'm so glad it was a part of Silvia and Ionela's designs. We just had to integrate it into our project because this style simply took over for the past couple of seasons with the strong colors paired with crazy flower prints which were embellished with gold and silver accessories. I loved Laura's outfit paired with shoes from the same fabric. Usually these types of pairing are a big no-no but in her case it all worked so well. It comes to show that exceptions can be beautiful too and she just looked incredible, her fishtail braid pulled the whole thing together. The flowers in my hair were a nice touch as well and I felt so comfortable in my outfit, after a whole day of shooting I didn't feel as though I had worked all day, we had so much fun! Thank you for reading about our project, I hoped you enjoyed it. You can see us shooting backstage - here and the other shooting - here.


{ro} In ultima parte a frumosului nostru proiect am pozat in vestimentatie gypsy - nu puteam sa nu integram acest stil in proiectul nostru. Ma bucur ca el s-a regasit in vestimentatia Silviei si pantofii Ionelei pentru ca a facut furori in adevaratul sens al cuvantului. Imprimeurile florale au fost prezente in toate magazinele si in garderobele tuturor iubitoarelor de moda dar nu numai. Culorile puternice, mixurile acestora impreuna cu printuri florale ne-au incantat privirile iar eu una ma bucur ca au facut-o pentru ca sunt topita dupa cum arata tinuta Laurei care merge pe aceeasi idee si material din cap pana-n picioare. De obicei acest lucru nu se face dar e clar ca si exceptiile pot fi deosebite. Ca sa nu mai zic despre fustita si pantofii mei, combinatia este draguta si atat de comoda! Va multumesc ca ne-ati urmarit acest frumos proiect. Ne puteti vedea backstage - aici si celalalt shooting - aici.

love,
Anca

Colors of Fall




CLOTHING BY:
H&M: SWEATER (similar HERE); ZARA: DRESS (similar HERE) & BOOTS (similar HERE); ABELLE : BRACELETS (coming up soon)

{eng} Fall to me means transitioning as many summer outfits into fall ones as I can by adding the right accessories. To be honest I'm not yet ready to give up the sunny days when I could wear whatever I wanted without worrying about getting a cold. This white skirt in this outfit is really a dress from Zara which I've wanted to transition for a long time because I didn't really get to wear it as much as I would have liked. All I had to add was a cute cropped sweater similar to this one and this one in order to make it work for fall. I added the belt in order to tighten my waist and keep my figure. The best things about this outfit, in my opinion, are the bracelets. They're my favourite because they come in a lot of different colors and they're perfect for any season. You'll be able to find them on www.abelle.ro shortly!

I also wanted to say that yesterday was an amazing day not only because the weather was fantastic and I was able to wear this outfit but also because I got to meet some amazing people. I love what I do and a huge part of that has to do with the fact that I get to meet so many amazing and talented people from which I have so much to learn. I'm grateful that you exist, I cannot wait to meet more of you!  

{ro} Toamna pentru mine inseamna a incerca sa transform cat mai multe tinute de vara in tinute de toamna adaugand accesoriile corecte. Fie vorba intre noi nu sunt inca pregatita sa renunt la zilele calduroase cand puteam sa port ce vreau fara sa-mi fie frica ca voi raci! Aceasta fustita pe care o vedeti este de fapt o rochita de la Zara si de mult mi-am dorit sa o transform intr-o tinuta de toamna pentru ca nu am purtat-o foarte des. Am descoperit ca pentru a face acest lucru avem nevoie doar de un pulover dragut si cat de cat scut cum ar fi acesta sau acesta. Cureaua am adaugat-o pentru a creea iluzia de talie mai mica mai ales pentru ca celelalte piese sunt largute si nu am vrut ca linia corpului sa se piarda. Cireasa de pe tort dupa parerea mea sunt bratarile! Ele sunt favoritele mele pentru ca vin in nenumarate culori si sunt accesoriul perfect in orice sezon. Vestea buna este ca in scurt timp vor fi disponibile pe www.abelle.ro. Abia astept sa vedeti ce modele vom avea ;).

Voiam sa mai impartasesc cu voi si faptul ca ieri a fost o zi minunata. Nu numai pentru ca vremea a tinut cu noi si am putut purta o tinuta draguta dar am cunoscut si oameni minunati. Iubesc ceea ce fac, voi stiti asta, tocmai pentru ca reusesc sa cunosc oameni de calitate, de la care am ce invata si pe care ii pot admira. Ma bucur ca existati si abia astept sa pot cunoaste si mai multi dintre voi. Va pup! 

love,
Anca

Breakfast at Tiffany's





CLOTHING BY:
 ABELLE - TRENCH (HERE) & SKORT (HERE); PERSUNMALL - SHIRT (HERE); DOLCE VITA - SHOES (similar HERE); DKNY - WATCH (similar HERE); MANAS - PURSE (similar HERE).  

{eng} Looking back at pictures from the 1940s when Burberry designers came up with the iconic trench I notice that the idea hasn’t changed much. Audrey Hepburn’s classy and elegant style in Breakfast at Tiffany’s made the trench an iconic piece which every woman should have in her wardrobe. The trench to me is a versatile piece one which I’ve worn time and time again while going to university and I always chose it for its simplicity and elegance. The nice thing is that a trench coat will always manage to keep you looking polished and as long as you keep in mind a few simple rules when it comes to colors you’re good to go. In the past I’ve paired trench coats with leggings, colored, skinny, straight and even flared jeans and I always managed to look put together. I can’t help but smile when I see girls wearing trench coats on the street because I love how beautiful and confident they all are! I think that when we wear a trench a little bit of Audrey’s personality rubs off on all of us, don’t you think? What do you think of trench coats?

{ro} Uitandu-ma la poze din anii 40 cand designerii Burberry au creionat ideea trenciului realizez ca design-ul acestuia nu s-a schimbat mult. El si-a pastrat eleganta si frumusetea reusind acum sa fie vazut ca o piesa pe care orice femeie trebuie sa o gaseasca in garderoba sa. Stilul clasic si impecabil al lui Audrey Hepburn in filmul Breakfast at Tiffany’s nu ne-au facut decat sa apreciem si mai mult simplitatea si frumusetea clasicului trench motiv pentru care il purtam si in ziua de azi. Pentru mine, trenciul este o piesa versatila, una pe care am purtat-o incontinuu in anii de facultate pentru simplitatea, versatilitatea si eleganta sa. Purtand un trenci nu vei fi niciodata prea incarcata indiferent de nuantele pe care doresti sa le porti atat timp cat ele respecta reguli cromatice de baza. Totodata, i-am admirat mereu versatilitatea pentru ca l-am purtat impreuna cu dresuri (70 den), cu blugi, cu pantaloni negri sau chiar si colorati, evazati, drepti si skinny, eu le-am incercat pe toate! Nu pot decat sa ma bucur pentru ca vad din ce in ce mai multe fete care adopta acest trend si zambesc inevitabil cand le vad pe strada pline de incredere in ele. Cred ca atunci cand purtam un trenci fiecare dintre noi imprumuta putin din personalitatea Audrei, nu credeti?
Voi ce parere aveti despre trenciuri? 

love,
Anca.

Super 8: Aristocrats

{eng} I think that when you’re part of a project where the team you’re working with is truly awesome, you don’t feel like you’re working because the team becomes your family and the whole point of the project becomes something you do for fun. 

{ro} Consider ca atunci cand faci parte dintr-un proiect in care echipa este cu adevarat minunata nici nu simti ca muncesti, echipa devine ca si familia ta iar scopul proiectului devine o normalitate ce vine de la sine.

{eng} I like the look of these pictures but oddly enough I don’t really recognize myself in them. Gabriela and Andreea managed to turn a regular person who rarely experiments with extravagance in a real aristocrat. Nothing would have been possible without Silvia’s clothing designs and Ionela’s shoes (there’s a picture where I’m surrounded by shoes and I’m smiling maliciously because I wanted to take them all home, I really did...). I specifically didn’t talk about Laura so far because she’s a real life goddess who gets into character instantly and could probably convince anyone that her character is in fact real. Our photographer Ciprian tried to make me be more serious for this series of pictures but we all know I smile at literary anything and it was especially hard to be serious when he was the funniest and easygoing person ever. 

{ro} Imi place cum au iesit pozele pentru ca uitandu-ma la ele nici nu ma recunosc. Gabriela si Andreea au reusit sa ma transforme dintr-o persoana cat se poate de normala si care rar experimenteaza cu extravagantul intr-o adevarata aristocrata. Nimic nu ar fi fost posibil desigur fara vestimentatia Silviei si incaltamintea Ionelei (la un moment dat, intr-o poza zambesc malefic uitandu-ma backstage ca si cum... eu iau acasa toti pantofii astia si voua nu va dau nimic). Vorbesc la singular si intentionat nu am spus nimic de Laura pentru ca ea este o adevarata zeita care intra cu cea mai mare usurinta in orice personaj si ai putea sa juri ca este ba nobil ba tigan de la cadru la cadru daca asta isi propune (nobil si tigan fiind cele doua scenarii pe care noi am incercat sa le imortalizam in proiectul nostru). Iar daca tot vorbim despre a imortazila... Ciprian a reusit sa faca din mine o persoana serioasa – eu care zambesc chiar in timp ce scriu aceasta postare... fara nici un motiv fireste. El a spus ca unele cadre trebuie sa fie si „sexy” lucru care mie nu mi-a iesit in schimb... am fost serioasa! Sincera sa fiu, nici nu stiu cum voia el ca eu sa fiu serioasa cand ne-a facut sa ne simtim atat de bine si ca la noi acasa cu glumele si personalitatea lui dezinvolta.
{eng} You might say that I’m over complimenting them but I’m really not because I truly believe in them and the work that they do. Since having done the project I’ve had the chance to work with some of them again and it was just as much fun as the project was. For example I’ve since visited Andreea’s new salon “Green Hair Studio” and while she took care of my hair she also told me all about her launch party which will take place on Halloween and I cannot wait to go to! I’ve also had the pleasure to work with Ciprian who took the pictures for the new Abelle Boutique collection who you’ll hear more about in the near future. I cannot wait to also work with Laura because her pictures on Facebook simply fascinate me, how photogenic she can be. Even though Gabriela is so far away I know she’s an incredible person and she will succeed in her field without a doubt. After all... it was her idea to bring us all together! I have yet to visit Silvia and Ionela’s studios to see their fall/winter collections but I was so happy to find out how popular they are in Galati!

{ro} Poate o sa ziceti ca ii laud prea mult dar aste pentru ca eu chiar cred in ei si in munca lor si chiar am inceput mici colaborari cu cativa dintre ei. Spre exemplu... de curand am vizitat noul salon al AndreeiGreen Hair Studio si in timp ce m-a ajutat sa fac tranzitia parului meu de la vara la toamna mi-a povestit despre super lansarea ce urmeaza sa aibe loc de Halloween la care abia astept sa merg! Am avut ocazia sa lucrez si cu Ciprian care ne-a facut pozele pentru noua colectie Abelle si de care veti mai auzi pe viitor cu siguranta. Imi doresc sa mai lucrez si cu Laura pentru ca pozele ei de pe Facebook ma fascineaza, cat de fotogenica poate fi iar despre Gabriela nu pot decat sa spun ca „e prea departe Clujul” insa stiu ca este o persoana incredibila cu un potential imens in domeniul ei. Ea este cea care a facut acest minunat proiect posibil si ii multumesc :). Pe Silvia si Ionela trebuie sa le vizitez si sa le vad colectiile de toamna/iarna, nu am putut decat sa ma bucur cand am aflat cat de cunoscute sunt in Galati! 


{eng} That’s it for now... the next post will be of the second shoot: gypsy! Can’t wait! 

{ro} Cam atat pentru moment... urmeaza sa va prezint si cel dea-l doilea shooting: gypsy. Abia astept. Va pup!
