I admit – I have a crazy passion for walking down the streets. Alone, for hours, listening to my favorite old school songs (And I can chat with you baby / Flirt a little maybe/ Does your mother know that you’re out?), with nothing in my head except for those lyrics. I do this a lot when I’m traveling, just exploring those little streets where you can find different shops with souvenirs, ice cream or vintage stuff. Last time when I did this it was in China, few weeks ago, Beijing more precisely, when I had some free days (as it was a modeling trip). Starting from the early morning until late at night. Damn, I should have taken some pictures to show you the atmosphere of those full chinese places, where the street food shops were in front of their local clothing stores… typical chaos. I’m going to start a vlog anyways soon, in order to show and tell you more about these kind of trips 🙂 .
Of course, I’m always going for a black, comfy but chic outfit to explore the surroundings. Black is my favorite non color of all times. You know how they say, there’s never too much black in your wardrobe. Well well, I’m still working on that. I was so lucky to find this bomber jacket with fuzzy sleeves on Nasty Gal, it was the last piece! It keeps me warm and the sleeves… oh, those sleeves. Perfect match with the color of the MK bag. Nasty Gal is the store that has so many clothing pieces to fall in love for. Like these wide leg pants. I had to wear a pair of tights under as it was freezing outside (one of the reasons why winter makes me sad). Also, it’s been already 2 years since I had those leather classy masculine shoes from Asos, that are still doing their job pretty good. All in all, that’s the perfect mix for me to walk the streets for hours.
What whould you go for?
Trebuie sa recunosc, am o pasiune nebuna pentru plimbari. Singura, timp de cateva ore, cu castile in urechi ascultand piesele old school preferate (And I can chat with you baby / Flirt a little maybe/ Does your mother know that you’re out?), doar cu versurile in cap. De cele mai multe ori fac asta cand calatoresc, explorez ore in sir acele mici stradute pline de magazine vintage, cu suveniruri sau de inghetata. Ultima data cand am facut asta eram in China, Beijing mai exact, cand am avut cateva zile libere (lucrand ca model). Inca mai tin minte cum incepeam devreme dimineata si terminam seara tarziu. Regret acum ca nu am facut mai multe poze sa va arat atmosfera aceea “chinezeasca” , asa cum ii zic eu, unde tarabele cu mancare preparata pe loc era in fata magazinelor locale, inghesuite… haosul tipic lor. Oricum, voi incepe un vlog in curand in care voi povesti si va voi lua cu mine in urmatoarele calatorii 🙂 .
Desigur, am optat pentru o tinuta all black ( aproape), comfortabila dar chic pentru a “colinda strazile”, de data asta in Bucuresti. Stiti vorba aceea, niciodata nu ai destul negru in dressing. Ei bine, inca lucrez la colectia mea. Am avut norocul sa “prind” ultima jacheta de tip bomber de la Nasty Gal. E atat de comfortabila si tine de cald, surprinzator. Iar acele maneci… o savoare. Culorile din ele au mers perfect cu geanta mea preferata de la MK. Cat despre Nasty Gal, magazinul acela are mereu piese vestimentare de care sa te indragostesti instant, cum au fost si acesti pantaloni wide leg. Unul dintre motivele pentru care iarna ma intristeaza este ca trebuie sa port dresuri groase sub pantaloni de genul, cum s-a si intamplat. Se fac aproape doi ani de cand am acesti pantofi de la Asos si inca se tin bine. Uite asa, asta e unul dintre mixurile mele perfecte pentru plimbari lungi.
