Treasures from Romania

My mom has just come back from a month-long trip to Romania and has brought me the most delicious goodies.

Lets start with the wonderful accessories from Dulapul Bunicii.

A lovely rose crown to make me feel like a princess...


A little bird's nest headband....


... and lastly a great ship necklace for my nautical moments

Then I had to get some shoes in my size... yes people, Romania is about the only place where I can actually get size 35 shoes without getting any ridiculous looks!
This is my third pair of the same Musette ballet flats... They are the only comfortable pair of flats that I have ever owned. No need to wear them in... just put them on and GO. I practically live in them. Ask my friends! I even wear them to play tennis! And the compliments I get!!!!!!!!!!! People always ask me on the train to school where my shoes are from.



And because small shoes are so hard to come by, my mom made sure she got them in black as well! Isn't she smart?

I also ordered this lovely playsuit from La Chaterie. Ioana from Fashezine featured it a couple of months ago when she did the Lolita shoot for La Chaterie. As soon as I saw the pics on facebook, I knew I had to have this piece in my wardrobe. So I won't spoil it, you get a little sneak peak of it!




Can't wait to wear them all!

They are all so special,as they say,an island of itself,cause you can practically build a whole outfit around each of these pieces.For no reason,i don't pay much attention to hair accesories although i have very long hair,but seeing your rose crown i'm in a deep WANT THAT! Just like a princess...I could wear that on my wedding day,with sand at my feet and wind in my hair.Too bad Prince Charming hasn't appear yet.:))

Those are all so amazing! I love the look of the playsuit, I can't wait to see the rest of it and how you wear it.

My mom has soooo much trouble finding shoes in her size (US 2). I should give her the info on these.

Oh, and LOVE the ship necklace!

I can't hardly wait to see you wearing my accessories:)))) - it was nice meeting your mother and sister. I had a shitty day, but now that I saw your article it just got better.

Love the ship-necklace, and the shoes from Musette,...might consider getting some myself once I get back to Romania...if you say they are so comfortable!

I love your accessories from Dulapul Bunicii they are really unique. Love your shoes as well, ballerina shoes are the best of both worlds: pretty and comfortable.

Mina I missed your blog tons! And I've been away for so long! But OMG do I have things to say! First, I can't believe I missed you mom while she was here! Then, you got such beautiful stuff from Alice, and that nautical necklace, to die for! Now for the shoes, believe it or not . . . I have the exact ones! The first pair of flats that I ever liked! And, me too, I get so many compliments on them. And lastly, the Chatterie playsuit looks so delicate and feminine on you, perfect choice! Happy to be back ;)

Love,
I

So cute my dear... I was so excited to learn from your questions post that you were originally from Romania. It makes you even more interesting. Me who took you for a pure root Canadian...

I just love all the pieces that your mother brought you from Romania. The flats look great, I'm so happy that you can accually find romanian shoe brands at such a high quality ( like Musette).
And I'm in love with the colour and that lace detail from the playsuit.
And the necklace looks really great too. And it goes great with some striped blouse/dress :)
I hope too see more of the playsuit soon and I am sure you will do a great job with your outfits!
Have a lovely weak!!
XOXO. Ioana
