Trending Details

This picture merges so many trends together, I fell in love with it: the 3/4 sleeve coat, the camel coat, the popping red, the multiple bracelets and the chain purse worn as a clutch.

If you're thinking about 3/4 sleeve coats and camel coats, here are some inspiring photos from The Sartorialist.

Inside Istanbul

I've traveled to Istanbul for 4 days and it was great. It was my second time in this beautiful and endless city, so I decided to skip the touristic activities and get lost on the small streets. I got a good look at the weekend activities of the only city located on two continents. Everything is cheerful, but at the same time sober.

Start the weekend with a prayer at the Galata Tower.

And continue with a fresh juice.

Take a walk through the Grand Bazaar and escape the rain and cold wind from outside.

Don't forget to catch a glimpse of the Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sophia.

Take a boat trip to the Asian part of the city and eat some good fish. You can visit the Maiden's tower located on the small island in the photo.

Sunday is market day in the Kurdish neighborhood. Everything is super cheap and everybody is very friendly.

Have fun!

Lookool in Lipscani

Remember I told you that Horia took a photo of me a week ago downtown? This is it! I like it, maybe because it was made by another photographer. He was asking me "Is it ok? Do you like it?", but I didn't care that much, I was happy he just did it. Don't forget about the contest on their website.

I was wearing my favorite pants that I bought from Glow and my new favorite cardigan (or I don't know how to call it) from Pierre Cardin. I have searched for so long for a cardigan like this: large, loose, comfortable and chic in the same time. Now I'm happy to have one that I really like and wear it almost every day. Also, I have a new haircut, but I hope to take some closed-up photos of it. I was inspired by Anna Karina, but I'll tell you the story when I have the pics. 

Oh, I'm flying to Istanbul in 2 days. Can't wait!! Just hoping to capture the style of Istanbul and, why not, do a little bit of shopping. Have a bright week!

Nicolae Tonitza Street ... Oana

I ran into Oana on the street and I fell in love with her cool sunglasses.

Lipscani Street ... Horia Stan

Horia and Nicu stopped me the other day on the street to photograph me. It was really fun 'cause I had my camera too and we photographed each other. It was a win-win situation :) Anyway, they told me they are launching the Lookool website and with it a contest, where you can submit your photograph and you may win one of the three prices that add up to 4000 RON. The day when all this is happening is the 18th March. I can't wait to get my hands on that photo of myself and share it with you guys.

At the University ... Alina

At last, spring is here and the two weeks of rain and awful weather are gone! The sun is up and I can return to my street hunt. 

I was happy to meet Alina, because although the weather is getting better people didn't get their spring clothes out of their closet. But the sun, nice and bright, was a bit challenging for my photo, so I had to shoot in the shade with this "lovely" background. You may say this photo captures the contrast of Bucharest: beautiful women and not so beautiful walls.
