in Budapest, Hungary

I've always been passionate about being above a city and realizing how big and amazing it is. The view from here is exceptional, allowing you to take in the House of the Parliament, the Danube and the bridges in a single glance.

Budapest is one of the most impressive cities, I would say, and seeing several beautiful buildings all together can be quite overwhelming. Especially when you're standing in front of the Buda Castle, the palace complex of the Hungarian kings in Budapest.

The tiny motifs on my jacket are matching with the baroque details of the railing and statues, and the colors perfectly suit the entire ambiance.

  • Stadivarius Jeans and shirt
  • Mango Heels
  • Zara Bag

"Change your opinions, keep to your principles; change your leaves, keep intact your roots."
Victor Hugo

The utterly modern and hectic lives that we lead nowadays, make us forget about our roots and national traditions.

I find the Romanian national costume really beautiful, yet simple, and I think it perfectly represents the old country life in Romania. People were leading simple lives, but they were guided by a special energy and vibe, creating beautiful crafts and spreading happiness.

I'm sure you've heard of Henri Matisse's painting, "La Blouse Roumaine", inspired by the most popular item of the costume. Guess what, it's been made in Romania since forever.

The jacket being my favorite clothing item, and also being passionate about my country's customs, I created a modern alternative of the traditional Romanian costume. Embroidered with care and sewn with enthusiasm, the traditional motifs jacket is for sure a statement item. 

That's the reason I took these photos in the nature, without any built background, because I strongly believe this jacket doesn't need anything else. It stands for a very nice and important cause - reminding us of our culture.

in Budapest, Hungary

Culture, art, freedom, architecture - that’s what these photos are about.

Cycling through the streets of Budapest, I spotted the beautiful Opera House and I could’t help taking some photos there. Everything was matching: the colors, the styles, the ideas.

The Opera House, also known as the Hungarian Royal Opera House, was designed by Ybl Miklos and it opened to the public on the 27 September 1884. It is a richly-decorated building and it is considered one of the architect's masterpieces. Built in neo-Renaissance style, with Baroque elements, it surely is one of the statement buildings in Budapest. (The interior is also glorious, you have to trust me on this one.)

The jacket I am wearing is somehow elegant, but very versatile. Its silver accents make it look good if you fancy wearing something more sophisticated; but it’s so comfy that there’s no way I’m not riding by bike while wearing it.

With this mix of several styles in both the environment and my apparel, it seems that this silver-touched jacket and the Opera are a match made in heaven.

in Budapest, Hungary

I love bridges. For me, they are the element of a transition, a path to another place, and in Budapest, the two parts that bridges connect really are contrasting. One is crowded, densely-built, full of young people and energy, while the other is known for its relaxed community, beautiful hills and cozy quiet streets. 

My favorite bridge in Budapest, and one of the most beautiful I've seen so far in the world, is the Liberty Bridge. With its bohemian look, special color and funny story (people usually climb onto it, sit there, gaze at the whole city), it has earned its name. 

Built for the Millenium World Exhibition between 1894-1896 by architect János Feketeházy, in Art Nouveau style, it has had a tangled history. It was firstly named Francis Joseph Bridge, but after being blown up by retreating German troops during the World War II, it was rebuilt in 1946 and got its actual name. 

My most recent visit on the bridge has a lot to do with its blooming story. It was a nice quiet morning, the sun was shining after a long rainy season, I bought some very spring-related flowers, and I was wearing the colorful floral jacket. And if these little symbols don't relate to rebirth, then what else does?

I am wearing:
  • Roxi's Fine Cut Jacket
  • Zara Purse and necklace
  • Pull & Bear Jeans
  • H&M Pullover
  • Bata Ankle boots
