the Entitled Bully - lookbook

We are the story of our own adventures.
Life is crazy with its ups and downs, and all we can do is sit tight, enjoy and sometimes, fight back.

We start believing in innocence, in the fact that the world is ours and we can basically do whatever we want.
Then life catches up with us and reality hits. It’s brutal. It’s hurtful.
We gather ourselves and our broken heart and we start the heeling process. It will take time, it will take friends, books, teas, wine…but in the end, we will come out as conquerors.
And maybe, because we have survived with dignity and pride, some will try to pull as back. That’s the moment when we’ll become entitled bullies!

(more on the story soon…)
Collection: the Entitled Bully
Designer: Arina Varga

And, in the end, a picture of me and Virgil, fulling around at the shooting (so stop saying I just talk about my life and not show you any pictures!!!):

Working the Needle

Today I decided to keep it cool and hang out in the atelier.
The atelier - the place I love the most in the worlds, the place that simply makes me feel so so happy!

And because it's impossible to simply sit in the atelier (a place of work) I took it upon me to hand sew some embroidered flowers on a cute jacket/trench. Some of you might see this as extremely boring, but for me it's the perfect example of relaxation.
I sit down in a cozy corner and I see to my work, thinking about future projects,, the flowers and my thoughts! Perfection.

We all have different ways of relaxation. Some like to go to a spa, other treat themselves to a cup of tea or wine. Some go shopping, or to the gym, or to the movies. There are so many ways to unwind!
But believe me when I say, I know people just as crazy as me, that relax by ironing shirts, or washing the dishes.
How about you? Are you using classical relaxation techniques, or do you prefer the sort of crazy ones?

One of Those Days...

You know them...
You must know them! 'cause if you don't, I'll be the only one around here having bad-crazy days and that ain't they say, misery needs company! :)))

I joke! Relax! We need hard day, in order to have fantastic ones! Don't you agree?
This is how I live my life. I believe that what goes around, comes a round. I believe in the sun after the clouds. I believe in the need of negativity, to notice the positive! Because that's simply how life works. With dramas, with tears, with laughter and smiles...and love! Must NOT forget about it!

So, here I am. On January 28th 2014. A full day and far from being over. Even so, things got too crazy and I needed a blogging break to clear my mind.

Why was it so hectic? Well, yesterday we did the shooting for the 'Entitles Bully' lookbook (soon my dears, soon!), so today I had to pack everything and send it to Bucharest for other shooting. That means labeling, adding descriptions to each product, details about fabrics, they iron everything, put everything in individual packs and send the BIG pack. Plus, finish some on-line orders, some custom orders at the atelier needed fittings, meeting a few clients and on top of all that...the cat had a really bad day and they cried on-stop!!! Grrrrr
Even I keep saying: I LOVE MY JOB!
Back to work! And never forget: after the 'bads', come the 'goods'!

It finally started snowing in my town.

I can't say I'm super excited about that...really now, a few weeks ago I was telling everybody how much I wish it were Spring (maybe the temperatures of 17'C outside, didn't really help me get into the winter spirit). But it started to snow, hmm... I'm having a change of heart. Everything is crisp and white and I love it.

So, here we are, at the end of January. It's finally started to feel like a different season. A little late, but better the never. I just hope it won't last that long...:)))

Now, let's go outside and have some fun in the snow!

the Entitled Bully-Making Off

I know I promised you in my last post that I will show you some pictures from the making off of yesterday's shooting.
But it went way longer then I could imagine and it was too late last night for blogging and posting. I apologize! Even so, here I am today with a few pictures, in black and white.

Believe me when I say, it's going to be fantastic. Can't wait to show you what we've done! Such a great team! Everybody was sooo nice and happy to make it all work.
The model Anamaria Foltean was an angel, the make-up Monica Popmark did will simply blow your mind (she is so talented...jealous!!!), all the flowers were natural and looking so fantastic thanks to Flowers by Kari and the cake (yes yess, we had a real cake in the shooting) made by Brigitte Popa look and tasted delicious!
Also, I can not forget my sweet Sabina Mladin), who understands me so well and is patient with me and my crazy ideas! Such a positive person!

Yep, we were fantastic and we know it!!!
And now, to end as happy as we started, here are 3 photos with me, Monica and Karina! Well, all work and no play simply doesn't work well! Agree?
As far as my team goes, I like to think that 'Birds of a feather flock together' – RO: 'Cine se aseamana se aduna'.

the Shooting

Well, I do love to go shooting!
Shooting as in Snap! Snap! Not Bang! Bang! :)))
And so, tomorrow we'll have the photo shoot for my newest collection. And I'm very excited about it :))) I'm just going to tell you a few things about it, because I want it all to be a big surprise!

Here we go:
1. the name (without a name, it would be nothing): the Entitled Bully.
2. the season: well, guess what? No season! Or, all the seasons! :)) It's more of a capsule collection. A story, as I like to make them.
3. the team: me (ofc), Sabina Mladin (foto at by Sabina Mladin), Monica Popmark (hair & make-up), Anamaria Foltean (model), Rada Ureche (J'amais by Rada Ureche), Karina ( Flowers by Kari), Ancuta Ciortea (manager at Forward Models) and Brigitte Popa (cakes and sweets).

Aaaand, that's all you get to know right now! :P
Don't be hating! I know you like great surprises as much as I do!
ook, ok! One more thing: it's going to be the story of a girl, in 4 acts!

Now, back to work! Uh, I'm so excited about tomorrow, I simply can't stand still! Even so, you can be sure I'll be back with some pictures! :***

the New Coat Rack

Ohhh, I've been dreaming about this coat rack ever since I can remember! And I do mean THIS one! :))

My mom had it from my grandmother and she had it from her sister I think. I don't really know for sure, but what I know is that age doesn't really matter when it comes to the 'Golden Ghost' -as I like to call it! :)))
I simply love it for how it looks and I wouldn't care if it were brand new! Love knows no age, right?

Finally, my parents gave it to me and I couldn't be happier. I keep thinking that because he is the 'Golden Ghost', dresses that I will hang on it will simply fly off the rack :))) But, then again, I am pretty crazy...

So, do you love it? :D

and so it goes on...

Hello my sweeties!
Yes...I am back. Back with all my non sens, back with crazy days, back for good. About time, right?
Why am I back?
Well...I need this blog far more then any can imagine. Like a diary, it helps me keep track of my thoughts, of the things I love. Believe it or not, I still turn to my blog when I need some useful information about something I was thinking about 2, or 3 years ago. So, why not restart the love for theFword!

As you can see, I am the same. :)) A little tired maybe, but that comes with age and responsibilities (bleah!). A little jaded, a little smarter, a little more in all the departments. Life goes on and I, for one, am happy about that! :)

Lovely to see you all again!
