Old Bucharest

My darlings I'm back in Bucharest and I'm so busy... so many people to see so many things to do ... I feel like i need a personal assistant to keep track of the last few days I'm here.
Yesterday Nookie from Fashion in my Eyes and I walked around the old part of Bucharest where the architecture is beautiful. Most of Bucharest consists of communist style neighborhoods but the old Bucharest has that old world charm that I love.



I'm wearing: Joe Fresh top, H&M skirt, Expression Sandals, vintage bag that i found in my gramma's closet over the weekend trip

We started on Victory Avenue and stopped at a couple of boutiques including Raionul4 and Raionul 6 which left a lot of disappointment. Raionul 4 had a couple of great things like Dries Van Noten pieces, but Raionul 6 had the weakest merchandise inventory I have ever seen. I have no idea how in this economy such a store still exists. We did not take any pics of the stores as their designs were not in any way spectacular.





Next we stopped for lunch at Cafe Bistro Vilacrosse at the Kings Valley... an alley with lots of little restaurants... then we continued in around the Lipscani area which is truly known as the old town. Nookie bought a couple of retro postcards at a stand there.

Overall I had an amazing day... Nookie is the best company ever... she is such a funny girl.

I hate having a job sometimes and that's one of those days - I wish I could come with you guys yesterday; I'm happy I was able to come today though, I had a great time as always. I love your outfit and Denisa looks pretty dapper herself! Old Bucharest is lovely, it's the reason I love this city sometimes!:)
