Ethnic Influences

It's been so long since I last wore this vest, I think there are over 9 years. It is an unique piece, you won't find an identical one in the world (and no I'm not exaggerating, I'm really not, not this time at least). Why am I saying that, well first because it's a vintage vest, it has over 40 years and was made by my mother, yup she sewn every tiny little flower that you can see on it (unfortunately I don't have pictures from the back, I'll make a post about this later, it has pants also with flowers at the end, but they don't fit me, I'm so so fat :|). I always loved it, mostly because it's very fitted, but for the way the flower print was made also. I won't be able to make something like this ever, I'm too lazy to sew all the flowers. With the crochet dress from H&M (you can still find it in stores, even though almost an year has passed since I bought it) combined resembles with the Romanian traditional costumes in a way (not literally).

By the way these past days I went into crazy mode, bought alot of stuff, so stay tuned to see what is new in my closet (from sales and new collections).

A trecut atata timp de cand n'am mai purtat vesta asta, cred ca mai bine de 9 ani. E o piesa unica, nu o sa mai gasiti una identica in lume (si zau ca nu ma dau mare/exagerez, nu de data asta cel putin :D). De ce spun asta, ei bine, in primul rand pentru ca este o vesta vintage, cred ca are mai bine de 40 de ani si a fost facuta de mama mea, da fiecare floare de la cea mai mica la cea mai mare a fost cusuta de ea (din pacate nu am imagini cu spatele, dar am sa fac un post candva in care sa o vedeti mai bine cu tot cu detalii, are si pantaloni, da e costum de fapt, care nu ma incap, tragedie mare, si au si ei marginile la fel de inflorate). Am iubit vesta asta de cand am vazut'o, adica pe cand aveam in jur de 11-12 ani cred (au tinut'o ascunsa ai mei, sa nu care cumva sa ii fac ceva), si in principal pentru ca este cambrata, dar si pentru imprimeu, imi place mult cum e asezat. Eu una n'am sa fiu in stare in veci sa fac asa ceva, nu de alta, dar n'am pic de rabdare sa stau sa cos, ma irita inclusiv cusaturile mici (pot sa sper ca undeva tarziu la batranete poate o sa trag de mine sa crosetez sau sa cos ceva, cand eram mai mica coseam tot felul de prostii, adica flori, animalute, chiar si crosetam, se pare ca pe masura ce inaintezi in varsta te prostesti :))). Nu'i asa ca aduce un pic a costum popular modern (nu o luati chiar literal acum) combinata cu rochia de la H&M (inca mai e in magazine daca va vine sa credeti, desi eu am cumparat'o anul trecut prin martie parca).

Apropo in ultimele zile am tot cumparat diverse chestii (m'a cuprins nebunia cumparaturilor, am inceput cu ceaiurile, trecut prin accesorrii, haine si ajuns la carti), asa ca fiti pe faza ca am sa fac niste posturi cu lucrurile noi din sifonier si nu numai.
