Dear readers,

I love you!
I really do! :) That's why I promise that next year (in just a few hours) I'll be a better blogger. But until then, I just want to wish you a great year! May 2012 be full of love, fantastic friends and accomplishments!

I wish you all the already classic: health, wealth and happiness!

In the end...I wish for a greater beginning. The almost-over 2011 is a fantastic ride, that's why I know 2012 will be an even greater roller-coaster! Just start imagining all the super-duper things that will happen...then blow the confetti in your hand, kiss a loved one and your wishes will come true!

My "to do list" for the nest year? Yep, I will post one tomorrow! You don't believe? Just wait and see. I'll make a believer out of you! :))

With love,
Have a HAPPY New Year!!!

Starting yesterday, I finally managed to make my record player work. This after a few months of trying without succeeding! Believe me, I was almost at the point of giving up and buying a new one...

I really wanted to make the old one work, because it has sentimental value.'s worth something just to me, otherwise it's just a piece of junk...that looks really bad! Even so, I love it like crazy!
So, since yesterday we've been listening (at Atelier Arina Varga) to Earth,Wind and Fire, Aura Urziceanu, Rosu si Negru (a Romanian band), poetry by Mihai Eminescu and even a few stories...

Now, to make it all perfect, it must starting snowing. Please!!! Pretty please!!!Images: theFword

Musical Nostalgia

I guess we all have sounds that remind us of a certain period in our life. A certain move, a certain, why not feel the same about different images, fractions of videos!

Evidence was able to take me back to high-school! AHHH! Perfect song for the end of the year!What is your nostalgia song? :)

Cigar? Cigarettes?

How about a cool-funny New Year's dress? And also a dress that can be classy at the same time, all with a retro feeling! :))

I think I wanted to make a tuxedo-dress ever since I became a designer. Don't really know why...guess I just find it funny enough to consider it to be my style! So, this is it! I made one for myself, I got to wear it at the Absolutely Fabulous Fashion and Vintage Fair, in Bucharest!

ps. Hope you had a great Christmas!!!Images: Arina Varga

Christmas Giveaway - Arina Varga

Because it's Christmas and because it's time to share, Atelier Arina Varga decided to giveaway a dress and 3 Christmas clutches!

The dress is a soft, white one, with Swarovski Crystals and asymmetric details. Size M. You can wear it with a belt or louse. You can wear it like a dress, or maybe even with leather pants (for a more rock-like look). It will be your choice, because it could be YOUR dress!

The clutch can go as a unique accessory for a Christmas party. Fun and also useful, it's just Atelier Arina Varga's way of saying thank you for a great year!

Just join the facebook page: Atelier Arina Varga! You can do that until Thursday, December 22nd 2011, at 10 PM! (yes...sorry, only a few days...but that is because Atelier Arina Varga want's you to get your gifts until Christmas)

Good Luck!

White Dreams

of an Absolutely Fabulous Fashion&Vintage Fair
-Winter Edition
In case you missed the last post (a little impossible, I know...for it is just under this one), here is again, all the information needed to get to the Absolutely Fabulous Fashion&Vintage Fair:

When: Sunday, 18 December 2011
Time: 11:00-19:00
Where: Villa Rodizio, Str. I.L. Caragiale, no.32, Bucharest

This will be the White Edition (the irony: I'm writing this in black letters)! Anyways. This (and a few other factors) got me inspired to do a few white pieces, with details of lace and Swarovski Crystals (all put one by one, by hand, on the dresses).

With only one colored used, it was fun to play with asymmetries, with geometrical cuts, with transparency! Finally, I had (actually, I made) the time to play a little with the fabrics. After months of orders...this comes as a blessing! :)

I hope to see you at the FAIR! For a chat, maybe a coffee, some shopping and a lot of Christmas wishes! Kisses!Images: Arina Varga

Where Is The Beauty?

* 1950s fashion ad

I just saw this ad in one of my fashion books.
So, really now! Where is the beauty?
The old-school beauty?
The kind of beauty that makes you turn your head on the street, no matter if male or female!

...I'm missing (and I'm sure so are you) the classic beauty!
