This is a photo with me at The One magazine turning 9 years – with my beloved friends Cristina Negru, designer at La Mode Toujours, and Ella Negru, Account Manager at Echipa de PR. We have been mistaken for sisters for many many times, mostly when my hair was long like theirs.
The theme for the party was the Romanian blouse – IA. Here we are all wearing authentic Romanian blouses that run in the family… a tradition very respected in our country. 
Our blouses have probably more that 100 years each and are hand made by our grandmothers
Lately – what we call tradition – has transformed into a trend. Yes, the Romanian traditional blouse is having a big comeback. 
The beauty of it is that it brings that hippie relaxed air to any outfit and you can mix it with anything: jeans, high-waisted skirts, white pants, high-heels, flats… anyway you feel like. 
Find inspiration in these photos of celebrities over the years that have worn it beautifully on Pinterest and buy one for yourself (as spotted here). 
If you are looking for the REAL deal – try or Ie Romaneasca.
When you buy one pay attention to the fabric. Some of them are made from really thick linen and are difficult to wear in the summer. And don’t forget to take good care of it when washing it and last, but not least, to have fun with it in your summer outfits!!

In poza de mai sus, de la evenimentul prin care revista The One a sarbatorit 9 ani – sunt alaturi de prietenele mele dragi, Cristina Negru designer La Mode Toujours si sora ei, Ella Negru, Account Manager la agentia Echipa de PR. Am fost confundate ca am fi surori de nenumarate ori, mai ales cand aveam si eu parul la fel de lung ca si ele. Va las pe voi sa hotarati daca semanam chiar atat de mult.

Pretecerea a avut ca tema IA romaneasca. Toate am purtat ii mai vechi de 100 de ani (fiecare), facute de bunicile noastre si transmise din generatie in generatie. Un obicei minunat, nu-i asa?

Ceea ce noi numim traditie s-a transformat in ultimul timp intr-un trend foarte puternic.
Fumusetea iei vine din ideea de hand made, dar si datorita traditiei. Cu aerul ei relaxat, usor hippie, ia poate fi purtata cu aproape orice din garderoba voastra: jeansi, fuste cu talie inalta, pantaloni albi, pantofi cu toc, sandale plate…

Pentru mai multa inspiratie am gasit un board pe Pinterest cu celebritati care au purtat ia in feluri diferite si un articol pe cu cateva recomandari de shopping.

Daca sunteti in cautarea unei camasi traditionale autentice, va recomand sa cautati mai multe pe sau pe Ie Romaneasca.

Fiti foarte atente la material atunci cand alegeti. Unele sunt facute dintr-o panza extrem de groasa si sunt aproape imposibil de purtat vara. iar altele sunt atat de vechi si de fragile incat nu mai pot fi folosite decat ca piesa de decor. Nu uitati sa aveti mare grija de ele, sa nu le bagati la masina de spalat… si mai ales, sa va bucurati de ele in tinutele libere din vara!

    Ai aratat superb in acea ia.
    Imi place in mod deosebit pentru ca evidentiaza o feminitate si o senzualitate aparte oricarei purtatoare.
