Also From Last Year.

As I mentioned in last week’s post, the blog means the world to me. It brings me to places I have not been before, I experience things I haven’t experienced before. So as promised, I will share a few of those novelties with you.

A thing I have never done before is to wear hats – I disliked hats. Every time I hear the word ‘hat’ I can remember my Mother telling me to wear an awful/ugly/not-matching-anything in my outfit hat (I mean the dreadful kind – the knitted ones that make my head look like a giant mushroom). So I never wore hats, even if it was a snowstorm outside. Also, I never thought I could ever possibly wear hats in the remarkable and respectful way my dear Grandpa was wearing them – I never thought I had it in me. My Grandpa wore hats every time he left his apartment – and not any hats. I think he had a hat for every suit, and coat, and polo and… summer suit (yes guys, summer suits – they existed a while back). I seriously doubt I will ever meet a man better dressed than my Grandpa<3.

So the day came when I was asked by Cosmin and Timea to take pictures with some Lucia M hats (www.luciam.ro). I of course, bravely accepted, although in my head I was already having a panic attack because I cannot wear a hat! I look ridiculous with a hat!!! OMG!!! But then I had to focus on my resolution – try new things, accepts new challenges even if I freak out and better run. So I did. And I still am, a month later, amazed of the result. I love the outfit! These are my absolute favourite pictures – I can’t believe it took me so long to post them.

PS 1: I feel hats are not only just another layer to keep us warm. They are not just an accessory to complete an outfit. While I was wearing a hat I felt taller, stronger, more confident and elegant than in a formal attire. Weird. I will look forward to wearing more hats, maybe I will understand the process better.

PS 2: I still want the black hat Cosmin!!

From Last Year.

So I know that 99.99% of the people that know me do not understand, but the fact that I have this simple blog is unbelievable for me – it is a dream come true. I am very happy and proud that I finally found the courage to post, to write and to take photos – even if the last part is still a bit difficult for me.  I just really hope that I will be able to post more often. I haven’t done any pics this year (I have no clue how most people take blog pics in this cold weather – it is almost torture to me due to the cold). These pics were taken during a Saturday with Dorel.

A cool thing about having a blog is that you get to learn and explore things that maybe you haven’t done before – for me there are many such things, almost everything I do for the blog actually. I will explore most ‘discoveries’ I made in future posts.

One of the things I am very happy to say I did due to the blog is to explore streets I have never walked on in my own city! And I walk a lot – I don’t even have a car, so most of the time I walk. These streets are in the old part of the city, really close to the city center, and I was very excited to admire some amazing houses from the interbellic period. I didn’t even know these streets existed, let alone the buildings. The TV from the pics must have been a bonus – we found it in our walk. Last time I saw such a TV it was in a museum.

Uncensored.

dasha-5179
There’s no better feeling then speaking freely what you think, what you feel, expressing who you really are through your honest, uncensored opinions. There are so many social norms lately I believe many times everyone forgets their true selves in order to be accepted and/or liked. And it kills our uniqueness little by little. We become something like a boring army, that doesn’t really strive for anything truly valuable.
With all these ‘anniversary’ days for insignificant reasons we should have an uncensored day –  a real one, not only an ‘official’ one. It should be respected by everybody – we should only be able to say exactly what we think, straight forward and without any detours. I think it would be completely useful in the long run for everybody.
Clothes always help me express myself, they give me an irreplaceable sense of freedom – this is the main reason I adore them, hunt them down and cherish them. Every item of clothing gives me a different feeling – my favourite – high heels. Leather pants, short/feminine/structured dresses and lace are in the top as well. How unique!! lol.
