Ruffles, Bows and Layering

We are all guilty of looking at our wardrobes and thinking we have nothing to wear. By all, I mean most of us fashionista girls. This was me today, wanting to wear a cute outfit yet something new and creative. Sometimes it's easy to get stuck in a routine of wearing the same outfits all the time. There isn't anything wrong with that, however one of my goals for this year was to be more creative with my outfits. I love fashion, so imagining and creating different looks is fun for me. 

It's also nice to reuse and repurpose the items already present in my closet, instead of constantly shopping. Now, I do shop a lot, but would say this year I've been more thoughtful and really considered my needs. Trying to constantly visualize new styles has also been a fun creative exercise. 

The fun aspect of today's look are the ruffles created from the overlapping of the dress with the dress shirt. It created a ruffled hemline, which offers a trendy vibe to the look. Of course I paired everything with my statement bow sandals.

Are you guilty of complaining you have nothing to wear?

Casual Lace for Summer

This laser cut lace dress is a dream and perfect for special occasions, however I wanted to find a way of styling it down, making it more casual. So, today's challenge was to create a effortless look. The easiest trick is to add Converse sneakers, which instantly offer a cool vibe. I also added an off shoulder lace blouse underneath, simply because I adore the style. The outcome is feminine and romantic, yet more relaxed. 

What do you think?

Peachy Summer Make-up

Hello Babes!

I hope you're having a fantastic week so far. Today's video is all about that glow we want in summer. It's a peach make-up look that is very light and fresh, because no one wants a tone of make-up caked up on their face what it's super hot outside and you feel like melting. This is something I would wear for going out on summer days, it's very glowing and bronzing, yet incredibly easy to achieve.

Let me know what you think!

White Off Shoulder & Thigh High Slit

Summer has been my favorite season since I was a child. The hot weather and the fact that my birthday is in summer were the main factors in the beginning, however as I've grown and developed my love for fashion, couture became another reason. Styling summer outfits isn't just fun, but also easier. Of course, for someone who dislikes summer it won't be. 

Being the kind of person who needs heat in order to enjoy wearing dresses and skirts is another factor why summer is better. There are so many women out there, who comfortably style dresses and skirts even in winter, but sadly I'm not one of them. It's not that I don't do it, because I do, but I feel frozen the whole time. ahaha Spring and summer are also the seasons in which I feel most inspired to wear heels and be creative with my looks.

Now, you might be thinking "what is she talking about? we're still in spring, it isn't even that hot!". If that's the case, you clearly don't live in Milan, where the people are kind and the weather is hot. ahaha Seriously, lately we've been blessed with 27-30 degrees Celsius, which puts me in such a holiday mood. I spend my days thinking about the beach and how wonderful it would be to smell the salty sea water. 

In celebration of summer, I styled this white and nude outfit. As previously mentioned, off shoulder represents summer perfectly, so of course I'm wearing a white lace off shoulder top. My skirt is actually a special occasion dress, but it would be sad to only use it for events, thus the repurposing of it. I fell in love with the thigh high slit, which makes it sexy and fun. To add even more playfulness, I paired the outfit with my giant bow sandals. It's hard to get over how cute they are, hence why I keep sporting them. Anyway, happy Monday babes!

What do you think about the skirt/dress?

Summer in a Dress

Have you ever wondered how summer would look like in just one clothing piece? Just me? Well, this is what summer would look like in a dress. It has the perfect white and blue stripes, off shoulder line and ruffles, all in a light fabric. Basically, everything we want in summer: cute, light and fun, yet easy to wear.

The tittle of the post has a double meaning. Not only would this dress be a wonderful interpretation for summer, but this summer I plan to live in this dress. I will admit that my favorite part is the ruffled off shoulder line of the dress. Honestly, can't wait to style it more. Imagine how pretty it's going to look at the sea side! This time, I chose to wear it off shoulder, because it suits better my current style, however you can also wear the SheIn dress on the shoulder, like it was intended. You know, I just like to "make it my own". 

How is your weekend so far?

Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Foundation Review

It's time for another first impression and this time on the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea foundation. Because of my fair skin, it can be quite difficult to find a light enough shade in foundations, so I was very pleased with Tarte's shade selection. If you remember, my Bourjois foundation oxidizes and gets too dark for me, so after gifting it to a friend, I needed a new foundation. With a bit of research, I became more curios about the Tarte water foundation and decided to get my hands on it, which was quite easy thanks to my sister who brought it from the US. 

If you want to see how it applies and my full thoughts on it, please watch the video below.

Preppy Chic in Floral Embroidery

With summer around the corner,  floral embroidery is dominating the street-style scene. It's feminine and gives a romantic touch to any outfit. 

Take my outfit for example, I paired this romantic blouse with my leather trousers. The feminine details balance the toughness of the trousers, as do my bow mules. It's my kind of perfect balance between girly and edgy. Over the past month, you've been able to see my style transitioning into the hot weather. I've been introducing a lot more pastel colors and light fabrics. I can't wait for summer to here!

This cute SheIn blouse embodies summer vibes. It has floral embroidered details, ruffled sleeves and it's white. With summer approaching, I look forward to wearing a lot more white. Truth be told, I also adore the look of all white in winter, but don't trust myself to keep an outfit clean. Ahaha It's not like I'm a clumsy person, but with rain or snow, accidents happen. In high school I ruined my sister's favorite pair of white jeans wearing them in fall. Needless to say, she was beyond pissed. 

Have you unintentionally ruined your sibling's/mother's clothing before?

Sporty Luxe in Madrid

Though fun, the last day in Madrid was rainy and gloomy. However the city's breathtaking center lifted up the mood and I still enjoyed walking around. My outfit was effortless and comfy with a 90's vibe to it. 

Have you visited Madrid? In my last video you can see a bit from what the city has to offer.

Ruffles & Stripes in Madrid

Happy 1st of May Dolls!

If you've been following my Insta Stories, you'll know that I've been in Madrid over the weekend. It was my first time visiting the beautiful city and I was really impressed. 

For the first day I styled a light spring outfit, light in color and fabrics. The main theme were stripes, which are visible on the pants, but you can also see them peeking through from the top. It might have been sunny, but it wasn't particularly warm, so I added this nude sweater. The ruffled details of the sweater give a feminine and romantic vibe to the outfit. We explored the city, so comfy shoes were a must, thus I opted for my trusty sneakers. I'm proud to report we walked 14km a day! 

Over the next week I'm going to share more posts from Madrid, so make sure to come back!

How was your weekend?

Bell Sleeves & Chambray Shirt Layering

You wouldn't think we're in spring from the weather in the past few days. Milan has been gloomy and like previously mentioned, a flu/cold has been going around. Happy to let you know, I'm feeling better and despite the moody weather, have finally taken new outfit pictures. 

Now, the weather may be gloomy, but I'm not, so I wanted to add a pop of pastel with my chambray shirt. Since it was quite chilly outside, I layered a crochet bell sleeved blouse underneath the chambray shirt. The crochet and bell sleeves offer a summery vibe. For the lower half of the outfit, I opted for my trusty office trousers and dark green booties. Since the ankle boots are a quite dark shade, they are easy to style, even though they aren't a neutral color. 

My favorite thing about this outfit is that it's elegant while having personality, but it's also quite effortless. It incorporates trends and summery elements, but it's my style. The best part? It's all styled with pieces that were already in my wardrobe. I love styling old/staple pieces in a fresh and new way.

I was in a creative mood and tried a bohemian inspired hairstyle with this look. It's a mix of french and fish style braids with waves.  

What do you think?

Society imposed Perfection

What is perfection? By definition perfection would be something that is flawless, beautiful, simply excellent, but would you know what to think it's perfect if society or media didn't influence you 24/7? We all have different perceptions of "perfection", depending on our upbringings, homeland and social interactions. 

At this point you might be wondering what has gotten into me? Well, you don't know this about me, but I've been passionate about lookism since I was introduced to it in Uni. I even wrote a 15 pages paper about it. Lookism is the discrimination based on someone's appearance. For anyone new here, I studied Cultural and Social Anthropology in Vienna. Another unknown fact about me, I've loved writing since I was a teenager. However on my blog, I slowly stopped writing long posts because a lot of people simply don't read, they just look at the pictures, but after all, this is my little corner of the internet and I should be able to express my opinions. Not saying they are right or wrong, just mine. Now, back to the main topic. 

You will notice there are two pictures almost identical. In one the camera made the soft skin effect, while in the other it didn't. Honestly, this wasn't planed, it happened. At first glance looking at the pictures it was clear that the first one was better, so I asked myself why is that? After comparing them a bit, the answer was obvious: because one was featuring me with flawless skin, no freckles, no redness, no lines, just perfect smoothness. Not very real though. Society tells us that in order to be a beautiful woman you have to be perfect, to have flawless skin, small waist, but large chest and bum and so on. 

This might sound crazy, but do you know I've disliked my freckles since forever? I've even been bullied for having them. From a young age I've used different creams that promised to rid me of them, which btw never worked. The crazy part is that people are now getting them tattooed on their faces. Even though at 25 I thought I had finally accepted my skin as it is, when confronted with the possibility of "flawless" I immediately saw that as more beautiful. 

This isn't the case of someone discriminating me, it was me, which is worse. You know how they say your mind is your biggest enemy?! This isn't a dramatic post and I'm certainly not fishing for compliments. We are all different and beautiful! The important thing is for me to be happy with myself, which is something I've been working on for the longest time. We all work on this and we all have different characteristics we don't like, it's just the way we were made. The point is that the perfection the media, influencers, models are showing isn't always real.

Moral of the story: Try to be your best version, not the copy of someone else. Also, what you see in the media or on Instagram isn't always the truth.  

If anyone has been wondering where I've been the past week, you could call it a forced break. Sadly, I caught a flu and had a high temperature, which meant no pictures, just rest. Hopefully I'll be back soon with outfit posts.

MAC Lipstick Collection

Welcome back my lovelies! 

How is your week so far? Mine has been quite lovely! For this week's video I wanted to share my MAC lipstick collection with you. If it's a small or big collection depends on your own perception, but I think it's a nice round-up. I love lipsticks and collect them. For me they are the one make-up item I can't go out without, even without any other make-up on, I love using a lip product. 

In the future I also plan on filming a liquid lipstick collection,  but was wondering if you would love to see it?

All Black Spring Look

Spring is all about pastel colors and romantic hues, but what about the girl who likes wearing all black no matter what season it is? Why should she feel less "springy", just because she doesn't enjoy pastel shades? Today's post is for all of my fashionistas who enjoy rocking an all black look all day everyday! 

Except the pastel colors, the most important characteristics in a spring look are the fabrics. As soon as the weather gets warmer, everyone is wearing flowing pieces and crochets. From the pictures you see that I opted for a crochet blouse with bell sleeves. The bell sleeves aren't just trendy, they also give movement to the look and for a touch of "badass", I added a faux leather crop top underneath. The bottom half consists of a light fabric pair of culottes and fishnet stockings. As you can see I combined different trends and vibes to create a more complex look. 

The crochet, flowing fabrics and bell sleeves offer the spring elements needed in this outfit, while the faux leather crop and the fishnet stockings give it character. 

What do you babes think?

Striped Summer Dress & Converse Chic

Let's all take a moment and do a mini dance for the weekend, but also for Milan. Today there were 25 degrees!!!, which meant wearing a dress with no tights. The warm weather brings me immense happiness, it may be silly to some people, but it brightens my day. 

Of course in honor of this summery day I wore a SheIn striped dress with sleeves, because let's not get too crazy or wrapped up in this temporary warmth. As you can see it's blue and white colored, which is a classic summer combination. The bow detail in the back gives a cute look, while the loose fit offers comfort. Wearing this dress only reinforced my love and excitement for summer, but also made me wish I had a tropical vacation planed. To add a cool factor I paired the dress with my Converse sneakers and a ring choker. Though it took my a while to jump on the choker bandwagon, they are still a favorite. 

Excited for the weekend?

Romanian Food Taste Test with Matteo Fumagalli

Crazy hair and constant laughing sums up this video. I had so much fun filming this and you can really see my bubbly personality in this video. Matteo had never tasted Romanian food, so it was quite interesting and fun to see him react to different dishes. I love Romanian food, of course, but if you're curious to see his first reaction press play!

Boho Festival Outfit + 5 Tips

While I may not be attending any festivals this season, a festival outfit was needed. On this happy Monday, I'm sharing my take on a festival look and what I would wear if given the chance. Not saying this would be a practical look, but it's stylish. 

1. One of the most important things when attending a festival is to protect yourself from harmful sun rays, so a hat was an essential for this look. 

2. My skin is quite fair, so I would easily burn under the sun all day, which is why my dress of choice covers my shoulders and a good part of my arms. 

3. Of course you should also apply a high SPF no matter how fair or dark you are. 

4. As you can see I added a jacket, this would come in handy as the night comes and it gets chillier. Now, the heeled boots aren't exactly practical, so if you're not comfortable with heels opt for a flat footwear. 

5. Don't forget to keep hydrated!

This pretty SheIn dress has scalloped details and is made of suede, so paired with the hat and over the knee boots it creates a boho look. Festivals give me a very boho vibe, which is why I would opt for a bohemian inspired outfit. 

Are you attending any festivals?

Color-blocking & Scalloped details

Scalloped details embody such femininity and give a romantic vibe to any outfit. When combined with the edgy harness detail, they pop even more. Almost like the two wouldn't work, but they blend excellently. Since I was going for an edgy vibe, I combined the SheIn top with faux leather pants and leather boots. The cat-eye sunglasses add a playful layer and so do the color-blocking cardigan and boots. This isn't full on color-blocking, since the colors aren't complete opposites, but they still contrast with the black. 

Who's happy for the weekend?

Preppy - Sporty - Happy

What's the most important accessory one can don? Well, a smile of course. One that is genuine, letting the happiness shine through. 

Wondering what makes me happy? No?! I'll let you know anyway. The small things, like sporting a simple cute outfit or feeling precious while wearing new earrings. Today's look is relaxed and simple, exactly what is needed on a Monday. The top has delicate ruffled sleeves offering a romantic preppy vibe to the look, while the Superstars are sporty with a chill vibe. 

My earrings are from the lovely Happiness Boutique, a Berlin based brand. I opted for a pearl drop style that looks sophisticated yet modern. Like I've previously shared, they carry lovely designs at affordable prices. Fun thing, they a reward program and bi-monthly giveaways. In case you're interested, the sweet girls at Happiness Boutique offered me a 10% discount code for you guys, just use carinavardie. 

While the earrings were gifted, I only share my genuine opinions and don't gain anything from the code.

Louis Vuitton Bag & Nike Sneakers in Milan

My mum was visiting over the weekend, which meant strolling trough Milan for hours and taking pictures in all my favorite places. I only shot one outfit, because it was nicer to enjoy her company and talk. I know you understand and don't mind. I did however post a tone of InstaStories, so you can follow me there if you would like to. There was a lot of walking involved, 11km per day to be precise, so my outfit selection needed to be comfy, but still cute.

Since showing you this bell sleeved open back shirt, I wanted to wear it and this was the perfect occasion. The blouse is trendy and adorable, yet easy to wear. The white and blue striped matched perfectly with my white Nike sneakers and sunglasses, while the scarf combined blue elements from the shirt with the black jeans, tying it all together. The Louis Vuitton bag adds a feminine touch with its muted color and cute design.

Bell Sleeves & Cold Shoulder in sunny Tuscany

We've come to end of the Tuscany looks. These pictures were taken in Siena, just like the last ones. This was my second time in the Tuscany region, but the first time visiting Siena and San Gimignano. As you would expect, it was beautiful, the food was delicious and the wine incredible.

The last outfit combines a white SheIn dress, that has bell sleeves and cold shoulder details, with over the knee boots and faux fur vest. It would also work with a cotton or any light fabric vest, but styling the dress with a vest, lets you highlight the cold shoulder details, which is what I was going for. 

I will say that since it's a white dress, without any extra slip or lining underneath, you have to be careful while in the sun. In the city I would recommend wearing it with either vests or a slip underneath. However, imagine how cool it would look with a neon bathing suit at the beach!!!

Which was your favourite look from my Tuscany week?

Tuscany Lookbook


After spending time to style this look and being proud with myself, I presented myself in front of my boyfriend who had the sweetest reaction. No, just kidding, he had the worst! He asked me if I was ready for bed, which got him a very confused look. Of course, I asked what on earth was he trying to pull, so he informed me that I was dressed in pajamas. Initially I laughed, then kicked him for mocking my well thought outfit. 

I'm not one to usually mix patterns, but was feeling courageous, so I paired this SheIn blouse that has both Gingham and stripes with my thick striped palazzo pants. The look is playful, stylish and not a pajama, though it was just as comfortable to wear. 

Hope you enjoy the lookbook. The pictures from the first look are already up and the last look will be published Friday!

Everyday Glam in Medieval Tuscany

This past weekend I've been traveling to different cities in Tuscany and one of them was San Gimignano. The small town has kept the medieval architecture making it a magical place to visit. It's fascinating to stroll and see it in all its glory.

For my outfit I chose an elegant dress styled in a bohemian-edgy way, paired with a wool floppy hat, leather jacket and boots. The idea behind was to make it fun to wear during the daytime. Of course that got me a few odd stares, but it's too pretty not to style during daytime. You might have seen this SheIn dress in my last haul. It has ruffly details and velvet dots, not to mention the fun flowing skirt. 

After walking through the whole town and buying all the cheese, I had the amazing idea to visit the torture museum. If you follow me on Instagram, you would have seen the stories shameless plug. It was unsettling to say the least, but also interesting to see. 

Would you wear this look?

Faux Fur Vest & Liquid Metal Shoes

Just as I was getting exciting that spring is here, it started raining for two days. However that didn't bring me down, as it was the perfect opportunity to style a new piece in my closet. The faux fur vest doesn't only provide warmth, but also chicness to a look. To be honest, I've been on a hunt for the perfect vest this whole winter, if not since last year, but couldn't find one that had the desired texture and look, while being accessible in price. This isn't sponsored by the way, I purchased it with my own money! 

The grayish purple colour made me fall in love with the vest, but the model is what got me hooked. The rolls, we'll just call them that, provide texture and definition, which a lot of other vest models lack in my humble opinion. For the first time styling it, I opted for a simple look that wouldn't distract from the star of the show. Though it's hard to distract from this fluffy gorgeousness. The liquid silver shoes compliment the vest perfectly, while adding a pop of something special. Underneath the vest I added a faux leather jacket, but a blazer, coat or even a knit would look fabulous. Everything else was very minimalist, a black turtleneck blouse and black jeans with a slit at the knees. 

What are you looking for in a faux fur vest?

5 Tips to survive the flu

Don't you just love how I'm starting this new month on such a positive note?! I mean, can you even? ahaha No, but for real babes, it wasn't planed to start like this, but sadly I have the flu. Instead of feeling sorry for myself, I decided to share some tips to help you, in case you have the flue or feeling down for whatever reason. 

I don't know about where you're living, but in Milan everyone seems to be sick, I swear everyone in my office had the flu. I was lucky enough to avoid it until now, but apparently saying I'm super heathy and won't get it made karma slap me in the face with some flu. To provide even more entertainment, I filmed these tips. So in case you want to see and hear me ramble on have a look, would make me super happy, but I'm also sharing them in writing. Also, in the video there are three extra tips for you!

Comfy Chic with a bit of Fishnet tights

Coming up with different ways to style fishnet stockings is quite fun, this is the third week in which I'm dedicating an outfit post to them. Until now they were the star of the show, however they can also be worn subtly while adding an interesting vibe. They are barely visible, yet still catch your eye. 

This outfit is very laid back and comfy, combining trousers and a fluffy turtleneck sweater. As you'll notice, I rolled the trousers higher to make the fishnet tights more visible. For a pop, I added my snake statement ring, but also this new coat. 

From far away you would think it's just a simple black and white tartan coat, however if you look closely you'll notice the blue line running through it. You guys know how much I love simple/minimal pieces with unexpected yet special details, so this had to be mine. Not just because of the colourful surprise, but also because that colour happens to be teal. It was made for me! 

What do you think about this look? It's very me when I want to dress up simply and comfortably.

Sunday Style Inspo

Hey Dolls!

Sorry I've missed Friday's posts, sadly I have caught the flu. I'm feeling better today and hopefully will be able to share new outfits next week. Until then, I want to share my favourite pieces from the new Dolce & Gabbana show, which took place today in Milan. As usual everything looked not only gorgeously feminine, but also full of life in true Italian spirit.

During the next weeks I'll share more favourites from different fashion shows, as always roaming through the pictures of Vogue.

Did you love the Dolce & Gabbana show?

Metallic Skirt & Bell Sleeves

Spring is so close you can smell it in the air! Nature is slowly starting to bloom again and the fashion choices are getting lighter and cheerful. To make things more fun, I'm sharing today's look also in video format.

Like I mentioned while styling this skirt the first time (here), pleated skirts are very feminine and romantic by nature, so in order to create some contrast, I styled it in a sporty way. 

What do you think?

Blue Roses & Bow Mules

A few weeks back I shared a "Style Inspo" all about mules, so it was time to share an outfit wearing the fabulous shoe trend. To be fair these aren't actually mules, they're a pair of statement sandals (wore them also here), but I put the strap inside. Before you ask, they were quite comfortable as mules, not to mention they also complimented the outfit quite beautifully. 

If you recall, in my last post of January I shared a layered look with a bandage crop over a dressy shirt. Since layering is so much fun, today I layered a floral dress over a dressy shirt creating a spring look. 

This dress is quite old, it survived all of my closet clearings, because I still love it, even if I rarely wear it. It has to do with the fact that my favourite flowers are blue roses and as you can see this dress is full of them. So, if you ever want to buy me flowers, definitely go for blue roses. 

What's you favourite flower?

Fishnets and Space Buns

Mother Nature has been incredibly generous with Milan, offering a full week of sunny and warm days. A bit of wind from time to time, but overall it felt like spring is almost here. Hopefully this won't jinx it, because I'm most certainly getting addicted to the warmth of the beams on my cheeks. 

Fishnet stockings had a bad reputation until a year or so ago, but now they're the perfect detail for some edge, transforming a simple look into something sassy. Last week I shared a look pairing them with a skirt and I hope to bring you even more looks on how to style them in different ways. 

Don't you find it funny how I blend in with the window shop in the background? That was not intentional! 

Today's look pairs fishnet tights with culottes and pumps. Keeping it simple, I added a crop top and a grey coat to top it off. Accessories wise, I opted for dainty golden rings and a choker with gold ring. You'll notice the pumps also have gold details. To brighten up the look, I added a teal clutch. For something a bit different, I styled my hair with two braids that end in space buns. 

What do you think?
