Mini Fashion Icons ♥ Малки Модни Икони

We're in the middle of the week and something fun is always good! I might be a little late to post this but it's the coolest thing on the internet right now! Just saying!

В средата на работната седмица винаги е добре да намерим нещо забавно! Може би поствам това малко късно, но е най-страхотно нещо в интернет! Само казвам!

The Little Black Jacket exhibition where the spirit of Coco Chanel still lives ♥ Изложбата "Малкото черно яке," където духът на Шанел още живее




Last week I went to see the long awaited Little Black Jacket exhibition in pictures by Karl Lagerfeld at the Saatchi Gallery, London. Even the entrance has the Chanel feel. A sleek black column with simple white lettering. "Simplicity is the keynote to all true elegance" as Mademoiselle Chanel once said. I walk in the minimalistic and modern Saatchi Gallery, go to the second floor and enter the world of Chanel. Walls and walls of pictures. 

But not just portraits of people, images of personalities, of moods, of captured moments. Innocence and seduction, drama and serenity, passion and indifference all gathered together in absolute harmony. The little black jacket has so many faces, it doesn't overwhelm, it accepts the wearer's personality, becomes a perfectly tailored part of it. According to Coco Chanel if you "dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman." The little black jacket is the epitome of impeccably, it make's a personality shine trough, it makes a woman remembered. 

This exhibition isn't just a tribute to an iconic garment, it is not just a demonstration of Karl Lagerfeld's styling and photography talent. It is another proof of Coco Chanel's genius. Only this legendary woman could create a piece so timeless to withstand the test of time and look just as modern today as it did so many years ago. The Parisian chic and absolute elegance capture the essence of Chanel. In those rooms of the Saatchi Gallery, between the walls of pictures, Chanel's spirit was alive.

Inspirational Quote by Winnie the Pooh ♥ Цитат за семицата от Мечо Пух

A drawing of Winnie the Pooh
Happy Monday! On such a gloomy, miserable morning I thought it would be lovely to start the day with something really positive and adorable to make myself and hopefully all of you smile. And what's cuter than Winnie the Pooh? Nothing I can think of! The adorable little bear has the most precious and wise insides on life, love, and happiness! I chose just my most favorite ones but if you like them and haven't read the book, start on it tonight with your evening cup of tea.
.........................................................................................................................................
Честит понеделник! В тази мрачна и нещастна сутрин реших, че ще е чудесно да започна деня с нещо наистина позитивно и слънчево, което да ме накара да се усмихна, а надявам се и всички вие също. Какво е по-сладурско от Мечо Пух? Нищо, за което мога да се сетя! Очарователното малко мече има най-милите и мъдри мисли за живота, любовта и щастието! Тук съм подбрала само наи любимите ми. Ако ви харесат и не сте чели книгата я започнете още тази вечер с чаша топъл чай.


Let's begin by taking a smallish nap or two... Winnie the Pooh

"Хайде да започнем с мъничка дрямка или две..."

"What day is it?" asked Pooh "It's today" squeaked Piglet. "My favorite day." said Pooh
"Кой ден е?" попита Пух
"Днес" отговори Прасчо
"Любимият ми ден," каза Пух

You can't stay in your corner of the forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes. Winnie the Pooh
"Не можеш винаги да стоиш в своя ъгъл в гората и да чакаш другите да дойдат при теб. Понякога трябва ти да отидеш при тях."

Some people care too much, I think it's called love. Winnie the Pooh


"Някои хора ги е грижа прекалено много, мисля, че се нарича любов."

Piglet: "how do you spell love?" Pooh: "You don't spell it, you feel it."
Прасчо: "Как се пише любов?"
Пух: "Не се пише, чувства се."


Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart. Winnie the Pooh



"Понякога най-малките неща заемат най-много място в сърцето ти"

Promise me you'll always remember... you're braver than you believe, stronger then you seem, smarter than you think, and loved more than you know. Christopher Robin to Pooh
"Обещай ми, че винаги ще помниш... по-смел си отколкото вярваш, по-силен отколкото изглеждаш, по-умен отколкото мислиш и обичан повече, отколкото можеш да си представиш."

Just to mention that the idea of this adorable post came from my adorable daddy <3 :)
Само да спомена, че идеята за този миличък пост дойде от миличкия ми тати <3 :)

Have a very happy week!
Много усмихната седмица!

Shoot of the week: Ornate expectations ♥ Сесия на седмицата: Ornate expectations

A fashion photoshoot inspired by the baroque trend for How To Spend It Magazine, Starring Nina Porter, Laura O'Grady, Louisa Facchino-Stack, Mary Ballantyne, Edda Oscars, Keira, Elenor Hayes, Sam Rollinson shot by Andrew Yee, Styling by Damian Foxe
What is fashion and how do you recognize real elegance and beauty? These are two of the hardest questions to answer because there's always another truth, another point of view, something that proves you wrong. Even two of the greatest women in the history of fashion tried and failed to give an always valid answer. First Coco Chanel said that "Simplicity is the keynote to all true elegance." Years later Anna Wintour proclaimed that "Fashion is never about looking back, it's always about looking forward." Both sound very true and logical, but look at the baroque trend this season. There's nothing simple or futuristic about it. Inspired by the royal opulence of the past designers are taking us to an exquisite, beautiful and very elegant world of elaborate details and fairy tale garments. Sometimes fashion is about looking back and elegance is complex, lavish and abundant. Fashion is never what you expect it to be but it is always breathtaking.
.............................................................................................................................................................................................
Какво е модата и как да разпознаем истинската елегантност и красота? Това са два от най-трудните въпроси, защото какъвто и отговор да дадеш винаги има още една истина, още една гледна точка, нещо, което да те опровергае. Дори две от великите жени в историята на модата се провалиха в опита си да дадат отговор, който винаги да е валиден. Първо Коко Шанел каза, че "Простотата е основният принцип на истинската елегантност." Години по-късно Анна Уинтър от своя страна каза, че "Модата никога не гледа назад, винаги гледа напред." И двете твърдения звучат напълно логично, но погледнете бароковата тенденция тази есен. В нея няма нищо просто или футуристично. Вдъхновени от кралския разкош на миналото, дизайнерите ни пренасят във великолепен, красив и изключително елегантен свят на претенциозни детайли и приказни дрехи. Понякога модата гледа назад, понякога елегантността е сложна, разточителна и изобилна. Модата никога не е това, което очакваме да бъде, но винаги успява да спре дъха ни.

Fashionable exhibitions in London

An incredibly long week is almost over! It's been super busy few days with sever deadlines and a new internship. I still managed to find time to visit three amazing exhibitions - The little black jacket with photos by Karl Lagerfeld, The Ball Gowns exhibition and the Hollywood costumes one. I will tell you all about those just as soon as I squeeze a little more time to write and edit the pictures (that I wasn't aloud to take, but I am a rebel haha).
.............................................................................................................................................................................................
Невероятно дълга седмица е вече към края си! Последните няколко дни бяха супер заети с няколко  крайни срока и нов стаж. Въпреки това успях да намеря време да посетя три приказни изложби - Малкото черно яке със снимки на Карл Лагерфелд, Иложбата на бални рокли и изложбата на холивудски костюми. Ще ве разкажа всичко веднага щом намеря време да напиша пост и да обработя снимките (които не беше позволено да правя, но съм бунтар, хаха).

Find the dress of your dreams at MissesDressy.com ♥ Намерете роклята на мечтите си в MissesDressy.com


If you have been reading this blog for a while you know I love beautiful feminine dresses more than anything. They are the ultimate form of sophistication, design and beauty; they demonstrate confidence and can show off the best of a woman’s body. I can spend hours looking at stunning dresses in all shapes and colors and still want more. I believe every lady should have a sun dress, a business dress, an A-line dress, a little black dress, a fun party dress and of course a breathtaking gown in her wardrobe. The last two can be incredibly hard to find, especially if you don't want to spend a small fortune. I've realized that to the full extend when I was helping a friend of mine find a prom dress.

Today I want to tell you about a great website where you can find the dress of your dreams and have it delivered to your doorstep. Do you like fun short dresses or elegant long gowns, strapless or backless, feathers or sequins?  You can find everything a girl dreams of at MissesDressy.com. The amazing collection of all types of designer dresses at very reasonable prices left me stunned and speechless. You can find everything from wedding dresses to prom dresses, to evening gowns and even accessories.

If I had to choose a favorite line, it would most definitely be the Sherri Hill Dresses. The lavish elaborate detailing and variety of shapes can satisfy even the most exquisite and capricious tastes. Looking at them I wish I could go through high-school all over again just to be able to wear such an incredible piece for my prom!
..............................................................................................................................................................................................
Ако четете този блог от известно време знаете, че няма нищо, което обичам повече от красиви женствени рокли. Те са най-висшата форма на изтънченост, дизайн и красота; демонстрират увереност и подчертават най-красивото в женското тяло. Мога да прекарам часове, гледайки зашеметяващи рокли във всички форми и цветове и да продължавам да искам още. Вярвам, че всяка дама трябва да има небрежна лятна рокля, бизнес рокля, рокля с А-линия, малка черна рокля, забавна парти рокля и разбира се приказна бална рокля в гардероба си. Намирането на последните две може да бъде изключително трудно, особено ако не искате да похарчите малко състояние. Осъзнах това докато помагах на моя приятелка да намери рокля за абитуриентския си бал.

Днес искам да ви разкажа за страхотен уебсайт, където можете да намерите роклята на мечтите си. Харесвате забавни мини роклички или елегантни дълги рокли, без презрамки или с гол гръб, пера или пайети... Можете да намерите всичко, за което мечтае едно момиче, в MissesDressy.com. Невероятната колекция от всякакви видове диайнерски рокли на разумни цени ме смая. Можете да намерите всичко от сватбени рокли, през вечерни рокли, до абитуриентски рокли и аксесоари.

Ако трябваше да избера любимата ми линия, определено биха били роклите на Sherri Hill. Разточителните сложни детайли и разнообразието от форми може да задоволи и най-изтънчения и капризен вкус. Приисква ми се пак да премина през петте години в гимназия само, за да мога да облека такава зашеметяваща рокля на бала си!

Take a look at their webite: http://www.missesdressy.com/ and tell me can you pick a favorite?
Разгледайте уебсайта им: http://www.missesdressy.com/ и ми кажете можете ли да си изберете любима рокля?

Inspirational Quote: What would Coco Chanel wear? ♥ Цитат за семицата: Какво би облякла Коко Шанел?

Happy Monday! Last week I shared with you Coco Chanel's wise thoughts on life and now it's time to see what the iconic woman had to say about luxury, fashion & style. 

Честит понеделник! Миналата седмица споделих с вас мислите на Коко Шанел за живота, а сега е време да видим какво е имала да каже за луксът, модата и стила.

I don't do fashion. I am fashion. Coco Chanel

Shoot of the week: Une Journée à Paris ♥ Сесия на седмицата: Une Journée à Paris

Une Journée à Paris is a fashion photo shoot by Yin Chao for Harper's Bazaar China October 2012, starring Miao Bin Si, styled by Fan Xiaomu and Gugu

It is Sunday and I can finally share with you an editorial I've been dying to post! It is so breathtakingly beautiful that it leaves me speechless. I can admire its classic grace and lavish elegance for hours. Moments like this are the reason I love fashion as much as I do! 

Une Journée à Paris celebrates the 36th anniversary of Harper's Bazaar China. To mark the occasion the October issue takes us to the city of love. Miao Bin Si takes on Paris in front of Yin Chao's lens,  wearing luxurious retro styling outfits that make references all the way back to the day the great Christian Dior introduced the legendary New Look for the first time giving women back their femininity after the War. The lavish pieces from houses like Lanvin, Mugler, Elie Saab, Dior Haute Couture are so much more than clothes, these are pieces of art that will remain in history forever.
.............................................................................................................................................................................................
Неделя е и най-сетне мога да споделя с вас фотосесия, която нямах търпение да публикувам. Толкова е красива, че спира дъха ми и ме оставя бе думи! Мога да се наслаждавам на класическото изящество и разточителната елегантност с часове. Моменти като този са причината да обичам модата толкова много.

Une Journée à Paris празнува 36-тия рожден ден на Harper's Bazaar Китай. За да го отбележи, октомврийският брой ни пренася в града на любовта. Miao Bin Si превзема Париж пред камерата на Yin Chao, облечена в луксозни толети в ретро стил, които ни връщат назад до деня, в който великият Кристиан Диор представя за пръв път легендарната колекция, наречена "New Look," връщайки на дамите женствеността им след Войната. Разточителните модели на модни къщи като Lanvin, Mugler, Elie Saab, Dior Haute Couture са много повече от дрехи, те са изкуство и ще останат завинаги в историята.

1x3 Remix: Royal blue lace skirt ♥ 3x1 Ремикс: Кралско синя дантелена пола

Series of pictures of different outfits that feature the same royal blue lace skirt styled in different ways
If I had to choose just one fabric to wear for the rest of my life, although it would be definitely a hard decision, in the end I would definitely pick lace. It is so intricate, exquisite and graceful. It's beauty and femininity were valued centuries back. It is revealing, yet mysterious, sensual, yet elegant. 

This royal blue lacy skirt is one of the most treasured pieces in my wardrobe not only because of the fabric, but also because it was actually made by my very talented mom when she was about my age. About a year or two ago I rediscovered it, made a few corrections so it would fit me and gave it a new life. I wear this beautiful, flattering skirt all the time no matter the season, it's very versatile and always looks stunning. These are just three of my favorite outfits I've shot with it. The first one is from Fall 2011, the second is from Spring 2012 and the third one is from last summer <3
.............................................................................................................................................................................................
Ако трябваше да избера само една материя, която да нося до края на живота си, въпреки че определено би било трудно решение, съм сигурна, че това би била дантелата. Толкова е пленителна, изящна и нежна. Красотата и женствеността й са ценени от векове. Тя е едновременно разкриваща и мистериозна, чувствена и елегантна.

Тази кралско синя дантелена пола е една от най-ценните дрехи в гардероба ми не само заради материята, а и защото е ушита от невероятно талантлива ми майка, когато е била около моята възраст. Преди година или две я преоткрих, направих няколко корекции, за да ми стане и й дадох нов живот. Нося тази красива, ласкателна за тялото пола постоянно независимо от сезона. Може да бъде съчетавана по хиляди начини и винаги изглежда страхотно. Това са само  три от любимите ми тоалети, които съм снимала с нея. Първият е от есен 2011, вторият от пролет 2012 и последният е от лятото <3
