Shaped by all things beautiful and feminine, Nicoleta Parascan’s first steps towards entering the captivating world of fashion were taken somewhere around the young age of six, when she received her very own first fashion magazine. Discovering an entirely new universe, filled with pretty ladies and beautiful clothes, there was not much able to ever beat or compete with the fantasy land that was suddenly opening up. Surrounded by books, constantly thinking about the next best outfit, in search of a signature style and defined by a nostalgic calling towards the past, Nicoleta believes in taking chances, in destiny and in building her own path in life. When she’s not writing, you can easily find her playing with her cat, reading an old book, watching movies, exploring the city or blogging her own daily adventures.

Sporty layered with gold

Flashes from the past, a distant but familiar one, firmly grounded in the ’90s inspired blend of plaid, cropped silhouettes and chunky layers of gold, gently laid against shards of sunny yesterdays; together they melt the sporty, the preppy and the edgy into one nifty juxtaposition of styles guilty of impregnating the solitary basketball court with the coolest philosophy.

A Gothic take on beauty, both dark and ravishing, seduced by the coolest of grunge undertones and rendered perfectly undone.

She’s made of galaxies and stardust

Beauty made of sparkling stardust and countless galaxies, beauty coated in gold and specks of anything else, beauty that appears to belong to an infinite night, transcending all limits of time and space.

5 grunge makeup looks to try this fall

Made of distressed denim, plaid, chokers, lots of leather and velvet, the new grunge trending for fall is not a mere fashion statement, but a style that’s already shaping up what is the edgier portrait of beauty.
