Camouflage vibes: the camo jacket

The camouflage print it’s been on trend since the 90’s. In the lasts couple of years, a statement piece, especially for the winter outfits it was the camo jacket.

The camo jacket it’s a one of a kind, because we can wear it all year round. It works great for the cooler summer nights as a light jacket, or during winter with a knit sweater and a cozy scarf.

Maybe if you have asked me a few years ago what I think about wearing camouflage print, the answer would have been no. It was the exact same case with the leopard print or latex.

Even before I started this blog, I decided to expand my horizon and step outside my comfort zone more often. I ended up feeling more comfortable and confident wearing pieces that I never thought I would.

Back to our topic of the day. Even though the camo jacket inspires a little masculinity, it can be very sexy.

I have to admit that I like a lot a look where feminine meets tomboy style. I like a lot how this camo jacket looks with jeans. But it is something about it that makes me always to mix it with dresses or skirts.

For today’s outfit, I paired my camo jacket with a mini black denim skirt and a gray sweatshirt. I finished up the look by adding a pair of combat boots that gives a badass vibe to the entire look.

There is though one more thing about the camouflage print that I wanna mention. There is enough just one piece with this print to polish a look. It is a statement print so our attention should be focus on one single item.

To make the camo print stand out, I like to mix it with neutral colors: whites, blacks and greys.

Let’s rock this new week, my lovelies. I wish you have a great one. XoXo

Turtleneck midi bodycon dress

Lately I’ve been into buying basic pieces, that I can dress them up or down and mix them with some statement ones. That was my reason when I bought this turtleneck midi bodycon dress.

I was on the hunt for the perfect black turtleneck dress for ages. I just didn’t find one that would match my criteria.

All I wanted was a turtleneck dress made of a thick material, so I can wear it in the cold months too. It would have a mid-calf length and long sleeves. Trust me, it wasn’t easy, but I scored when I found this one at Zara.

There are a lot of days when I feel that I don’t have anything to wear (I’m sure you know the feeling) or when I’m just too tired to think of a complex outfit. Then all I would want is to go outside in my PJ and put 0 effort in getting ready.

This kind of dresses it was for sure created for those kind of days. Super easy to style, they allow you to dress them up or down just by choosing what shoes are you going to wear.

It is a super comfortable dress, but it’s very sexy in the same time. I can say that is my version of a LBD for the winter.

I styled mine with a short silver biker jacket too add a little contrast with the dress. The booties have a little bit of a heel but they are comfortable to walk around in them.

The beauty of such a simple turtleneck dress is that you can go crazy with the accessories without being too much.

Trend alert: Corset Caged belts

As these interesting looking belts, are popping up more and more, today’s post is about them: the corset caged belts.

I’ve started to see them in a lot of different outfits and I just asked myself what do I feel about them?

I have to admit that I like the idea behind this trend. We clearly live in a oversized everything era, so an accessory that brings the attention on the waist, a body part that we kind of ignored lately, isn’t a bad thing.

Speaking of the oversized trend and the corset belts fever, these two can actually work really nice together. Add a corset belt over an oversized t-shirt or jacket and it will automatically give you an extra sexy vibe.

The corset caged belts are for sure an eye catcher. It is a cool accessory that will add style to any regular outfit.

I decided to go for a basic look, something super simple, so you can see how a single accessory can change your entire outfit.

Without the corset caged belt, today’s outfit would have been just a white shirt and a pair of coated black jeans. With the right accessory it is that simple to change a common look into a statement one.

Details are the ones that make the difference my lovelies.

I wish you all that 2018 will make each and every dream of yours come true. Happy New Year!

Embroidered mini skirt

Happy Monday my lovelies! I don’t know exactly what happened, but this fall I have a thing for embroidered pieces and for patterns. This gorgeous embroidered mini skirt it is my first item since all this embroidery fever started.

The pattern and the detailing it is absolutely stunning and the unbelievable part is that it costs only 30$.

I know this skirt might not be new for you, we’ve already seen it almost all over the fashion blogosphere. The strange part is that I still wanted it, even though, usually it doesn’t matter how much I like something, if everyone has it, I’m not getting it anymore.

Well, with this skirt, it was a different story. For some reason, the pattern and the embroidered fabric reminds me of the traditional Romanian costumes. With Christmas being so close, I am a little more emotional than usual. So, every time I’m wearing this skirt I have a melancholic smile on my face, because it reminds me of my family and the place where I grew up.

We’ve seen this embroidered mini skirt incorporated in a lot of summer outfits.Usually, worn with white t-shirts or tops. I saw it more appropriate for fall, so I paired it with a cozy sweater and a faux fur vest.

Anytime I’m wearing this vest I get a million compliments.Everyone tells me that is pretty hard to believe that it is a faux fur. It looks and feels extraordinary real but it is not.

It’s true that I don’t wear real fur, especially when we have such great alternatives.

I hope you all have a great week ahead full of fulfillment.

XoXo, OD!

Favorite fall coat

favorite fall coat

Hello my lovelies,

The star of the show in today’s post is for sure, the coat.

When I saw it in the store, I automatically knew that I want it to be mine.

Trying on a small size, which it was way too big for me, it was a big disappointment, because I thought that is a very unique coat and I could create some really cool outfits with it. I was checking what else they had, when on the other side of the store I saw another coat, which for my surprise it was an XS.

The fabric of the coat is what makes it so different and interesting… kind of a mesh, but not really, that’s the reason why I chose to style it with a leather mini skirt and some fishnet leggings.

I decided to go for a black on black outfit, more on the edgy side, because for some reason I find myself digging this style a lot.

How to wear your oversized coat with style

Hello my lovelies,

Cozy outfits are a continuous favorite of mine during this time of the year, but on the other hand I don’t want to look like a walking onion with 1 million layers on me. And my dear, nothing makes you look more warmer or more stylish than an oversized coat.

You can definitely set out an outfit with an oversized coat, if you keep in mind your height when you choose the length of it, because all comes down to balancing out proportions. Taste and style it is our personal choice, so it might depends on your particular preferences.

Looking in my closet, I realized that for some reason I have more grey-ish shades for fall than brown or neutral. I feel that they give you more of a polished, sleek look than the warm shades.

Since I kept my outfit pretty much neutral, I decided to add a simple, but effective splash of color: a red beanie. It is that 5% of red that works in every outfit.

How to wear socks and high heels

In today’s post, I want to talk about my favorite styling tricks and that’s  how we wear socks and high heels.

NO! I’m definitely not talking about the tourist “faux pas” socks and sandals :).

Before we knew that almost “everything is allowed” in fashion, (I said ALMOST, because there is a thin line between an outstanding styling and ridiculous) we were wearing socks only with our athletic shoes at the gym, or to do a quick run to the grocery store. Now, that sounds really boring and flat. How much fun you can have when styling socks and high heels. It is not a new trend at all, but I have a feeling that we’ll start to see it more often again.

I have to say it though, the socks and high heels sandals are a combination that fashion conservatives tend to stay away from.

It is one of my favorite styling tricks for fall, because I don’t want to wear only boots when the air starts to be a little bit crispy. In my crazy mind, sometimes I think that heeled sandals were invented as an opportunity to show off your socks :))

A really nice contrast is mixing sporty socks (with athletic stripes) and your feminine high heels to bring the whole outfit on the casual side, wearing a pair of lurex or even glitter socks will give a little extra something to the entire outfit.

For this outfit, I chose a pair of thick over the knee socks, that I didn’t pull all the way up, so it will match the volume that I created in the top of my outfit with the chunky casual-elegant hoodie.

Knit dress: perfect fall outfit

Hello my lovelies,

Today’s post is another fall outfit because October is here, so it’s the smell of pumpkin spice lattes, cinnamon and all we have the best from fall. Besides the lattes, I don’t really feel that is fall in southern California, because it feels like summer (the temperatures were in upper 80 when I was shooting this outfit).

Let’s be honest: knit dress is not new, fashion forward or unseen, but yet cozy, really trendy that we’ll keep us warm.

Besides sweaters, the knit dress, is another staple piece to have in your closet for the cold season.

I got this dress from Forever XXI especially for fall, because it looked different with a little bit of sparkle and I felt for the olive green color of it. It is not one of those chunky unshaped dresses and the two slides on the sides gives it more of a feminine look even if you wear it with sneakers.

Knitted dresses are really versatile, so you can do some layering by adding a biker jacket or even throw a blanket scarf over it.

I wish you have a cozy, warm fall, full of stylish outfits.

XoXo, OD

Floral Romper

Hello my lovelies,

I really enjoyed seeing girls wearing rompers, because they are a simple choice that you can`t go wrong with. We find them in all lengths, shapes, fabrics, patterns… girl, you have a big variety to choose from.

I wanted a short romper so, my only problem was that I couldn’t find one to fit me right and not make my feet look like two sticks ( I know they are not far from that, but still).

When I saw this cute romper at Zara, I could’ve bet that it will not work for me…well, I had a big surprise in the fitting room… I loved it. I like the flower pattern and the little ruffles on the shoulders. To run around the city, on a hot Cali summer day, I chose to wear it with a pair of flat sandals, but it will look as gorgeous with a pair of high heels for a night out.

I really hope that I can find more jumpsuits/rompers to fit me, because I enjoy their comfortability and the fact that you can create a sharp outfit with no effort.

If you choose a monochromatic romper you can definitely go heavy with the accessories, but if your romper has an interesting pattern, you will need very little accessorizing and your outfit is ready. Go and rock the day my dear!
