The root of my heart


Despite my strong middle eastern features and a knack for blinging  it on like they do back there, I very much at heart feel Romanian. 
I've always enjoyed a modern take on old Romanian traditions, and this Lana dress does exactly that beautifully combining an old folkloric print with digital printing.
The result: A simple yet stunning ( and very comfortable) dress, perfect for hot summer days! 
So how can one debut such a special piece? 
By taking it for a stroll through the Village Museum but of course!


Dress: Lana, Belt: Zara, Earrings: Vintage, Shoes: no name

E superba rochia .. :x Iar tu, arati perfect :D

Cee said...

I knew those earrings would not disappoint, and here they are, looking absolutely stunning on you. I love the way they look with your bright pink lipstick, the two warm colours are so beautiful together. The digital crochet print is so unexpected, but it's surprisingly lovely and suits you (and the setting; oh, that blue door!) just perfectly.

It was so nice to see you yesterday, Mina. Can't wait to see you style the clothes you took home!
xox,
Cee
