EN: Fifteen years ago, when I was in first grade, I had a black patent leather rucksac. When I graduated first grade, after pushing my mother for months (and pretty much driving her nuts), she bought me a pair of pink, patent leather shoes. They were so glossy and more like a fuchsia color, with a 2-3 inch heel. I wore them to death, that’s how much I loved them! Then, untill last year, my relationship with patent leather was pretty much over. I thought it was tacky and oh, so passé, so I kept myself away from the high shine material. Never in my dreams would I have thought, not only that I would wear it again but in WHAT form I would wear it.
So a while ago, after seeing online thisskirt from H&M and searching for it mad (no, H&M doesn’t deliver to Romania, you have to go to the store if you want to buy anything), mostly because of its gorgeous color, cut, volume and all that fabric involved, I gave up. It wouldn’t be the first time I see something online and I can’t find it in the stores (at least not near enough), especially with H&M, so I decided to forget about it and save my money for other occasion. And guess what? A week later, I received this comment from a romanian reader (thank you, dear!) telling me where I can find the skirt in Bucharest. So after work, I went straight there, found the bloody thing and bought it without blinking an eye. Trust me, it’s a gorgeous skirt :) But more on that later…
How do you guys feel about patent leather?
RO: Remember, remember? :D (Acum o mie de ani) va intrebam aici daca are cineva fusta roz. Cateva dintre voi mi-ati raspuns ca ati vazut-o in Baneasa (much to my dismay as adauga, fiindca evident, NU stau in zona aia) si de atunci am tot zis ca ajung si-o cumpar. N-am ajuns, n-am cumparat-o, imi luasem gandul chiar.
Si apoooooi, am primit comentariul asta:
Yuhuuuuu! :D Hidoasa, nehidoasa, m-am dus s-o caut in Afi chiar in seara aia, imediat ce-am iesit de la munca si Ta-da! A mea e. Marimea e dubioasa (bine, in cazul meu, marimile de la H&M sunt oricum dubioase mereu) si nu se aseaza cum trebuie pe talie dar e rezolvabil cu o curea. Si da, stiu ca imitatia aia de piele lucioasa (patent leather) nu e tocmai la inima oricui dar mie imi place foarte mult croiala, lungimea si culoarea. Deci, neglijabil materialul :)
Ah, si n-am luat tricoul ala. Mi-a placut, era si ieftin dar avea atata fond de ten pe guler… Pacat.
P.S. Thank you, Anonymous! :*
