Rosewe Dress - Kittenhood

[My outfit] soft pink dress

 Sat Upon The Stairs - KittenhoodDress – c\o Rosewe | Kangaroo pin – flea market | Shoes – Bait Footwear

Finding the proper location for an outfit post can be a challenge, especially when you’ve been doing it for a while. Like every week, we wondered around the city for a bit before we could both agree on a spot. In the end, I guess this particular stone wall and this dress went pretty well together, the former being so medieval and all, and the latter being so flowy and whatnot. It’s also the softest of pinks, and somewhere in between casual and fancy. I’m definitely gonna wear it with sweaters on top over the fall!

Shop handmade: Yelena Bryksenkova, Solitaire

Yelena Bruksenkova Illustrations - Kittenhood

Yelena Bruksenkova is a Russian born illustrator currently living in the States, with a mesmerizing way of portraying mundane activities. On one hand, her illustrations remind me of old Russian children’s books I used to have, while on the other hand they’re contemporary as can be. Her series “Solitaire“, which she did for an exhibition last fall, is the one that caught my eye – girls doing things on their own. My favorite has to be the pink-haired girl playing Solitaire, although each one has a certain mood to relate to.

Visit Yelena Bruksenkova’s blog and Etsy shop for more of her illustrations.

[Dress me in] Lazzari, Diana + Diana

11325_902493433112392_164061170413854640_nAfter so many years of blogging, I don’t expect lookbooks to surprise me anymore. And yet, it still happens! My heart skipped a bit when I started browsing the latest Lazzari campaign, called Diana + Diana. Everything about it is perfect: the setting – a spectacularly preserved 1960s mountain resort in Italy; the model – Diana Neu, pure cuteness with and without the wig; the photography – shot by Fox Eating Skyr, who also did Lazzari’s summer campaign. It’s everything I want to do, be and wear right now – fantastic capture, Lazzari!

[Put some color on] Girls with apples, 1927

The minute I saw this photo on Honey Kennedy, I knew it was going to be my next collage. It’s perfectly suited for this time of the year, with these nicely dressed girls and their freshly picked apples. And how beautiful is the apple print dress pictured to the right? I wish I could find something similar these days.

Vintage Shirt & Skirt - Kittenhood

[My outfit] that 70s style

Button Down Shirt - Kittenhood

Shirt – from my childhood | Skirt – vintage (mom’s) | Clogs – Shabbies Amsterdam (thrifted) | Bag – thrifted | Sunglasses – Lunet

This skirt couldn’t be more school appropriate, so every time I wear it, the outfit becomes school-ish. I’ve never had such items when I was still in school, and didn’t care much for going back to it, and here I am now. This was actually my mom’s skirt back in the 70s, which explains my impulse to pair it with clogs (sooo 70s!) and this old (and I mean old) button down that’s been made in a factory somewhere in the North of Romania, who knows when.

Dress me in: Kate Spade, SS15

Kate Spade Spring 2015 - Kittenhood

I don’t think I’ve ever featured a Kate Spade collection before, and I usually try to stay away from lookbooks that are not dedicated to the current season. But honestly, how could I help myself with this one? It’s everything I love: shirt dresses, matching separates, quirky bags, super-full skirts. That green dress above (right) made my jaw drop, and I still can’t get over it. That beautiful shade and the perfectly fitted waist, the knee length and the white accessories (including nails) look perfect. And don’t get me started on that white eyelet set…

Behind the scenes: back home

Wedding at Bontida - Kittenhood

Whenever I’m out of town, I take lots of pictures with my phone and post and post on Instagram. When I’m at home, however, it’s not as inspiring. So, while I’ve had tons of pictures from my vacation, I have very few of the time since then. Above is the welcoming scene from the wedding I attended a couple of weeks back, below is my new set of fragrances (they’re Guerlain and they’re incredible) and then some household pics. But don’t worry about the last three snaps, they’re not really from someone’s house! I spotted those in a museum in Hărman this weekend.
