Unicorns & Pearly High-tops

Bringing you a little chill weekend attire. I found this gem of a dress at the warehouse sale yesterday and couldn’t wait to strout it around. Someone once asked if I could wear one shoe for the rest of my life- my answer is sneakers. I am obsessed with these white high-tops and I promised myself to actually take good care of them. If you own a pair of coveted white shoes my biggest advice is to not wear them out at night or anywhere crowded where people can step on them. I actually kept the original box and dust bag, so every time I wear them I store them right back into safety. Might be a bit excessive, but knowing my history of taking care of my nice things, I think I’m growing up:)

Denim Flare & LA Warehouse Sale

Written by , Posted in Fashion

Hello everyone,

I hope everyone is having a fantastic week! I’ve been feeling so inspired and motivated lately to produce content and get back into updating the blog. My blog has always been a passion project and I originally started it as a little diary of my outfits to see how my style changes over time. I’m so happy to see that there are so many of you reading it and asking for more posts. I hear you all and I’m here to stay:) 988C8722

988C8817 988C8748 I have been LIVING in this denim dress for the last couple of weeks. It’s one of those pieces you can style with heels or high-top sneakers to create a wide range of casual looks. 988C8667 988C8785 988C8600
As most of you know I love living donwtown Los Angeles and one thing that I love for a certain is how many fashion brands have their home here. With a little bit of research you can score some incredible deals at warehouse and wample sales hosted only a couple times a year. There is an AMAZING one that is going to be happening at the end of the month by ShopTrendBoutique that you’re not going to want to miss. They’ll have brands like Wildfox and For Love & Lemons which are some of my absolute favorites. Did I mention that I’m going to be there on August 22nd around 10AM to shop myself and give you beautiful unicorns hugs? Hope you can make it & check out more details below!

Desert Vibes

Written by , Posted in Fashion

Hello everyone,

Over the past three weeks Los Angeles has been coudy and quite chilly for the most part so I thought Palm Springs would be the perfect get away to chase a little summertime sunshine. The desert is all about straw hats, relaxed vibes and distressed denim.

My Loft Tour

Written by , Posted in Lifestyle

Hello everyone,

As most of you know I am Moldovan/Russian so inviting someone into your home is like saying “Hey I really like you, welcome into my life”. Today I’m inviting you into my home and hope this can help you get to know a little bit more about me and how I like to do things.

I moved into my new loft downtown LA almost a year ago and now I can finally proudly say that it’s completely finished. My vision for decorating and furnishing was to create a clean vibrant space where I can section the open floorplan into a work and living area. I implented neon lights and geometric details throughought the loft keeping the color palette to metallics and royal blue to complement the rough concrete floors.

For the living room area the predominant theme is scatered geometric shapes and metalics creating an industrial oasis. I’m particularly fond of my little hanging terrarium mixed in with wire cubes that I attached to the celining with black chains and a metallic tube. I somehow managed to accomlish that without killing myself or dropping glass into my face- YAY! The glass balls are filled with green moss that stays green for up to 5 months. Maybe I’ll replace it with some fun jade jewels next time; possibilities are endless.

I live in a very old building so getting my kitchen renovated was a huge plus. I just love the abundance of hearty home cooked meals I can produce in it *sarcasm*. I really do wish I had more time to grocery shop, I love cooking at home!

I spent so much time at Home Depot trying to find the perfect dark navy and what seemed like perfect in the store turned out to be a very bright and vibrant royal blue. I was too lazy to repaint it so I just let it be. Sometimes you just can’t have it all *sigh*. That corner doesn’t get much sunlight which makes it perfect for Sunday morning hybernation. I’ve had the worst of luck with buying beds, they always seem to break bend and be the wrong size. This one I didn’t screw the bed frame properly which resulted in it bending and breaking. In turn, I had to remove the frame and just nail the headboard into the wall. So far hasn’t killed me in my sleep so that’s fantastic!

Now I present to you the area of my loft where I spend countless hours a day- the office. My vision was to create a simple clean space utilizing lots of glass and minimal metallics. I love my inspirational prints which I got matted and framed at Michaels. Yes it cost a small fortune if you must ask, but I’m super proud of how it turned out! I like to have my desk facing the window so I don’t get glare on my computer and also spy on people while I work :p

I hope you guys had fun touring my home and that it brings a little inspiration for those of you who love decorating!

Coffee Break With Racquel

Written by , Posted in Fashion, Lifestyle

Hello everyone,

Today’s blog post is a little collaboraiton we shot with my dear friend Racquel who I met at EDCLV last summer. Between the craziness of no phone reception and massive crowds I somehow managed to spot her backstage as we’ve been chatting to meetup on twitter for a while. I love that feeling when you meet a new friend and you just know that you’re going to hit it off. We thought why not to get together and shoot something for the blog while sipping on delicious coffee and exploring the streets of Hollywood.

I’ve been LIVING in this leather jacket and wanted to keep my outfit simple by wearing a long distressed minimal tee and add a pop of color with a cross-body bag.

Coachella:: Bohemian Hues

Written by , Posted in Fashion

Hello everyone,

Festival season is not only my favorite “holiday season” of the year but also a time to experiment with new fashion styles and push my personal boundaries when it comes creating looks. It’s no secret that Coachella is known for its Bohemian free spirited vibes, which is kind of the opposite of what you see on Evelina’s Fashion Cafe. I thought that I needed to get out of usual comfort zone of clean city vibes and dive into my non-existing bohemian pool of imagination and see what I can dig.

The biggest trick if you’re in a rot and completely don’t know what to wear is to find one piece that inspires your entire outfit. When I saw this skirt I immideately saw a vision of how I can create something that would make me feel like a bohemian goddess. This skirt is EVERYTHING. From the hand beaded details to the flowing train in the back- walking through Coachella felt like I was walking down the isle at my own aztec-bohemian wedding. I paired it with a fitted crop that brought the orange hues of the skirt and accentuated my figure. I topped it off with a black straw hat and some suede booties and Voila!

Thank you so much for reading!

Building Wells For the People

Written by , Posted in Lifestyle, Travel

Hey guys!

Today’s blog post is a little different. Just wanted to check in and say a quick hello and also let you know about this cool venture that I’m going to be taking part in this month. I often wondered what could be something cool that I can do to utilize my voice online that can make a real difference. Me along a few of my best friends are taking a trip to Haiti to film a video documenting the difference in villages that have clean water and those that do not. Along with that I am personally contributing to building a well in Haiti and I thought would be awesome to create a campaign for people to get involved as well! How cool if we can build a well and call it the Unicorn well!:) It’s crazy to me that up to this day we still live in a world with 748 million of people with no access to clean water which is a dirrect cause for disease, famine, education crisis to name a few.

You can watch my video and also find out how to get involved directly on my Generosity page.

P.S. I am not affiliated or sponsored in any way by the organization, this is something I’ve always wanted to do:)

Living Downtown

Written by , Posted in Fashion, Lifestyle

Hey guys,

Today I wanted to give you a little glimpse into my life. As some of you know, a few months back I made the decission to move downtown Los Angeles and in all honesty it has been quite the experience. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while you know my obession with big cities and old architecture so moving here was a no brainer. To most people in LA downtown is like the plague they want to avoid at all costs, but to me it’s still an undiscovered gem that’s going to be huge in a few years. Since I moved here I see new restaurants and unique street style shops opening up every week. Best part about living here, is having a ton of my friends live in the same building as me. Sophia came over one day and she loved it so much that she moved into my complex a week later. It’s just such an amazing feeling waking up and taking the elevator to your best friend’s place wearing pajamas. On our free time we love exploring downtown and finding new restaurants or just taking photos of the architecture. If you’re in LA or you come visit you HAVE to check out the Ace Hotel, Standard and Perch- 3 of my favorite spots with stunning rooftop views.

This outfit is a bit out of my comfort zone as you won’t see me rocking a maxi dress very often. I love pairing it with some thick heel booties, a spanish hat which I thrifted and of course a strappy crop top to avoid any weird bra straps. Comment below where you are reading from and what do you love about the city/neighborhood you live in?

New York:: Fluffy Parka & Holographic Hues

Written by , Posted in Fashion

Hey everyone,

I was out in New York for the weekend working on a project during the Golden Globes and even though it was absoultely freezing I still felt the beautiful energy the city has to offer. How can you not love the colorful taxis, fluffy coats and rushing New Yorkers multitasking through the streets of Manhattan.
My good friend Sophia let me borrow this huge fluffy jacket she got in Korea and I couldnh’t be more grateful. That stuff KEPT ME WARM. I paired it with a holographic print sweatheart and of course my most-loved pairing: peaking collared shirt.
