Monochrome Spring

7 May

Right after I was done with final exams, I rushed back to my hometown for Easter. I was so impatient to catch up with family and friends and have some well-deserved fun! Yesterday I went out with my mom for a walk to enjoy the beautiful weather and have some ice cream!

I adore Spring, for the beauty and joy it brings in our lives. I get the feeling that summer is getting closer and closer and I put aside all the warm clothes! For yesterday’s walk in town I picked a black-and-white outfit; not the most joyful colors, but my favorite ones. Moreover, I love colorblock combinations and would always go for the classy, elegant looks. What do you guys think about my outfit?

Fashion Aid | How to Dress for a Cocktail Party

20 Mar

I have always loved formal events because they are a rare occasion for me to dress up with clothes I would be feeling overdressed with otherwise. Speaking of, it is sometimes tricky and unclear how exactly to dress for formal or semi-formal events. The cocktail party I organized with my team from radio AURA for its 20th birthday inspired me for a new post devoted to dress codes, especially when it comes to cocktails!

Cocktails are usually classified as semi-formal evening or late afternoon events. They serve as a transition between two bigger events or as an event preceding a more formal one in order to reduce the number of quests, who arrive late. A cocktail is the perfect occasion for socializing with other invitees while enjoying soft alcoholic drinks like wine and cocktails, and eating appetizers. Oh, I love cocktails! However, since you are there mainly for communicating with new people it is important to know how to dress for it and make a memorable first impression! Remember that it is always better to be a bit overdressed than underdressed!

There are certain rules, for both men and women, which you can follow when choosing your outfit for a cocktail. I also talked with Dimira Teneva, who is part of the DJs team in radio AURA, and asked her for some advice. I hope you will find my post helpful!

Live, love, AURA!

19 Mar

AURA is the radio of my university, and is one of the coolest clubs to be in. Since this year I am also a part of the team, and, to be honest, this is one of the best things that ever happened to me. It is simply amazing – we are a bunch of around 40 students, who have one thing in common – the love to music. Even the alumni still keep coming back and participate actively in the development of our radio! AURA earned a special place in my heart very quickly and made my life more colorful by bringing some wonderful people around me…

Last Friday we celebrated its 20th birthday with a huge party that attracted not only students, but locals too. It was a blast!

Here is a sneak-peak into our cocktail party, organized for AURA members and alumni, other clubs representatives, and faculty. Gosh, it was a night to remember! Everyone looked simply stunning!

For the party I wore a ZARA dress and Mango black velvet pumps with a ZARA pearl-covered clutch.

So this is me..

When Vanity Fair Turns into a Reality Show

6 Feb

Dear bloggers,

The post you are reading is inspired by a documentary I watched in my Media Law and Ethics class a couple of days ago.

“Killing Us Softly 4” examined how advertising and fashion have distorted the ideals of femininity, causing sexism, eating disorders, and gender violence. It left me with mixed feelings, anxiety and resentment prevailing. Since when has fashion become a tool to suppress, rather than to express a person’s individuality?

There is a very thin line between veneration and addiction when it comes to fashion, and, since I am writing a blog on clothing and style, I want to make the clear statement what I am not writing about and why.

***

vic·tim, noun, \ˈvik-təm\ –  one that is acted on and usually adversely affected by a force or agent

fash·ion, noun,  [fash-uhn]  – a prevailing custom or style of dress, etiquette, socializing, etc.

A fashion victim is a person, who is adversely affected by the force of prevailing custom of dress, etiquette, and, most of all, style of living.

As much as I would like to think of myself as a discoverer of the illness of modern society that fashion has become for many people, I have to say that there is nothing new under the sun. Vanity has been reigning over society for a long, long time, depriving us from what really matters – to feel good in your own skin.
