Jet-Set Safari

 Coat: H&M
Tights: H&M
Bag: Vintage
Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell's Litas
Hat& Rings: Borrowed

Last Monday, as I got ready to go over to my friend's house, subconsciously inspired by this amazing outfit worn by Ioana, I grabbed my leopard coat and dashed for the train. The sub zero weather of last week called for a very warm coat and this H&M coat is exactly that.

My friend Roshanak is one of the best hostess ever. On top of always making me lunches and letting me play in her closet full of treasures gathered from around the globe, she offered to take some outfit photos of myself that day. No fancy camera, no special lenses,with just a plain old point and shoot , she was able to capture me like nobody has ever done with a no-frills camera. She let me borrow all of the amazing accessories you see such as the hat and the rings ... speaking of rings I have to do something about the fact that I do not own any obnoxious statement pieces.
 (My new amazing photographer Roshanak wearing one of her beautiful Persian coats)

Roshanak will now become a part-time photographer for Faboulista filling in for George from time to time. With her knack for ethnic inspired outfits and creative ways of using space, she will bring a fresh perspective to the blog.

I just love how elegant and stylish you look. This leopard coat is just as beautiful as the previous one, where do you find them? You do have great taste in picking out hats too. This floppy hat is amazing.
Roshy seems like a very genuine girl, I can't wait to see more of her pictures on your blog. George was a very good photographer too, don't get me wrong, but a lady can understand us a little better when it comes to love for fashion.

Happy to be even a little part of the inspiration for this awesomeness!

Pozele sunt facute in Bucuresti, in curtea facultatii :)) Acolo le fac mai pe toate pentru ca nu am timp nici eu nici fotograful care e o colega si prietena sa mergem la plimbari pt shootinguri. Decat rar..

Love the hat and coat. Is the coat a recent find? It looks very flattering and I love the abstract leopard print.

I can't believe your friend took those shots with a point and shoot... very impressive! I'm excited to see what else she does in the future!

It has to be a very good point and shoot cam, because the pics came out really sharp. And your friend is a very good photographer, indeed. Also very pretty and with great taste in accessories, if i might add. The lizard ring is killing me, I'm going to dream about it for quite a while.

Can't wait to see more from you two :).

Hugs,
S.

I loove the color of the bag, it's such un understated color, but so classy and pairing it with some edgy heels like you towering boots is such a perfect match. :) Ada

VertAnge said...
