Martisor

March 4, 2012 in Fashion





It’s officially spring, and we Romanians have a very special custom for celebrating this great season, it’s the wearing of “martisor” a red and white string with a small decoration attached. Martisor is offered by people on the 1st of March, it is an old custom and it’s a symbol of the coming spring among other symbols. I like that we Romanians have our own customs and I think we should celebrate them with proud. Given the fact that spring is my favorite season I’ll be wearing it for the whole month.

My love offered me this delicate silver martisor star with the usual red and white string and I’ve attached it to a bracelet for now.

I love this shirt’s print but I found it so difficult to wear it, or rather to match it to anything, and after trying some different cardigans I’ve decided wearing it with this black cardigan that has a similar print, that being the initial reason that I thought this 2 would not work together, but I liked it :) Initially I’ve purchased some jeans to wear them this spring but having arrived home I absolutely hated them, they were horrible, sometimes I don’t know how can I buy some things, so the next week I hardly returned them and bought this velvet jeans that were so much matching my taste in color and feel of wearing.

I wear:
pink-purple shirt with print – from Stradivarius
black cardigan with print – from Berska
blue velvet jeans – from Motivi
black heels – from Pantoful Galben
eyeglasses – from Zara
blue bag – from Bata
black coat – from Motivi

Jewelry: Round silver earrings
