Winter Yodel - pre-spring 2015 look book

Days are growing longer. The snow starts to melt. Little plants and herbs start popping up again.
Between the grey, rainy days, sudden gusts of wind and the occasional cold, one thing is for sure - winter will be over soon.

It's time to put away our heavy coats and slowly transition into sweater weather. Of course, we stil have the full month of February ahead, but wouldn't it be nice to actually enjoy the last bits of winter in pretty clothes instead of couting the days?

And what could be more appropriate than handmade, 40s-inspired Austrian cardigans to keep yus going?

I have to admit - these were shot on a particularly warm day in December during my trip back to Romania, but I stand by my choice of using the wild landscape of Moldavia instead of the overly-trimmed Parisian parks.

It just makes me think of vacationing in the Alps, horseback riding and 19th century hunting trips.

For the first time, the look book was shot entirely on film.

This mini-collection has six beautiful austraian cardigans, an adorable hand knit hearts sweater and a super cool cape. 

All will be in the shop next week. Stay tuned!

Curating vintage : fancy dinner show-stoppers and fun party numbers

Between the latest Paris cold streak (had to take out my fur you guys!) and post-terrorist attack madness (don't get me started), the best thing to do is look forward to the next big distraction.

To me, it is my upcoming birthday next week.

For the rest of you vintage and fashion lovers, it's probably the last part of the winter sale season. And, of course, shopping with Valentine's Day in mind!

I can't say I'm a big fan of this holiday that everyone seems to hate and yet they somehow end up celebrating...

Yet I can't really ignore it - every year I find myself wanting to do something to either protest it or embrace it. Like 'oh, I'm gonna buy myself some flowers! and cake!' or 'I'm gonna do something cultural like go to the Cinemathèque!'.

But I somehow always find myself dressing up for the occasion.

So whether or not you were planning a romantic dinner with your SO, a stay-in TV marathon or a night out with your friends, here are a couple of gorgeous vintage finds to make you feel like a superstar while doing it!

Just click under the photos for direct links or simply head over to the shop!

Film Hedonism : New Year's Eve from Another Planet

I know it's been more than a week since NYE now, but film photos take a little longer to get developed (or you just have to wait until you finish a roll).

Either way, here's some proof of my Romanian weather conditions - 20cm/10inches of snow and -20C/-4F temperatures for NYE. Kinda makes Paris feel more like Hawaii huh?

I hear the alien looking snow is mostly gone but the temperatures are still freezing.

After being so snow deprived in Paris, it sure felt like holiday season alright! Not much for outfit photo taking, tho I do get to show off my highschool winter coat from my dad. He did know it might come in handy one day.

Anyone has more snowed in photos to share?
