Why do I love online shopping?!



Today, I want to tell you more about one of my favorite online stores and at the end you`ll find some advantages and disadvantages together with some tips of the online shopping.

First of all, I just received a new package from Shopbop.  The awesomeness is the fact that it arrived in 4 days after placing the order. I couldn`t believe it when the mail man came to my door because the package was sent from US. If you want to sent something in Romania it can take longer :)).

My latest order contained a Marc Jacobs watch and some Calvin Klein lingerie. You can see them Here and Here. All of them were perfect but I want to mention you something: When you`re buying clothing or lingerie from US take a closer look at their sizes because for example their M is bigger than the Romanian M. 

Also my previous orders contained 2 different Michael Kors bags that you might have seen already on my blog: Here, Here and Here
I have to confess that this website became one of my favorites and if you want to eliminate all the taxes that the Romanian authority requires to pay, you can pay them directly on the website when you finish the order and everything will be much more simple. 
P.S.: you`ll have to pay them anyway because is a non EU package.



These are some of the items I just ordered with just one additional mentioning: I bought more lingerie items because I couldn`t resist haha. I will do my best to picture them soon and show them to you. But believe me, the reality is not different at all. ♥


And now, is time to share with you my most valuable points of view when it comes to online shopping.
You might have found during my posts that around 90% of my wardrobe is bought online. I was a bit insecure during my first order, but after gaining experience I become in love with this activity.
Maybe your next question will be: " But why?" Well, here is a high number of answers:
1. The online shopping is faster that the one where you`re searching the entire mall.
2. You can find all the items in one place and use key words for a faster result.
3. Large availability of products and you don`t need to go from one store to another because in the first one the desired item is out of stock.
4. New products that are not yet available in your city and some that will never be.
5. The "wishlist" is extremely useful and reminders that tell you when the item is almost out of stock are also essential even more when you want to buy something but from various reasons you can`t.
6. Some of them are cheaper that in the local stores.
7. In case of the most preferred website of mine( Find it HERE) The package arrives in maximum 4 days... from the US... believe it or not. But I can guarantee you ♥

And because I want to be honest to the end, here are some disadvantages and indications if you consider to buy online:

1. Don`t forget that for the non EU packages, you`ll have to pay VAT and custom duties. It is unpleasant and from my point of view abusive but what can we do?!
2. Payment is not really a problem if the website is secured and safe. But a bigger problem that will only take time is the case in which you want to return something. Check the info of the websites.
3. If you want to avoid the "return process" I suggest you to read carefully all the details and the product description. You have there all the measurements for each size in cm and inches.
4. When the delivery takes longer than expected. It can happen but don`t worry, in the end, in my case, I received them all.

Tribal and lace-up boots


Good morning! Today I want to tell you more about how my life as a shoe lover is. I ordered this wonderful pair of boots a few weeks ago and when they arrived I was extremely enthusiastic. But this moment didn`t last so much, because I discovered that the lace-up boots were extremely tight and I had to take each and every one of it and make it larger. Believe me, it took me around one hour and a half just to make only one of the boots. 

Just after a few days ago I decided to turn back to the other one because after my first experience I felt exhausted ahahah. But in the end everything was fine and I am so happy right now that I can wear them. Do I have to mention that I carefully take them off and put them in a safe place where they cannot change their form? :)) I love them and I can`t wait to wear them again ♥

About the outfit, well it is extremely simple and I decided to add a small touch of tribal with this dress that is extremely comfortable :D As you can see I also kept the direction with the pattern of my fav beije leather bag :D
You`ll be able to find all the details of my outfit in the "I was wearing section" with direct links to each item.

Wish you all a wonderful day
Kisses Manuella ♥

White Jumpsuit and Over the knee Gladiators


So, it`s Monday again and I decided to take a break and write about my favorite outfit. We had some troubles with the weather lately, but during the weekend I managed to wear my new favorite white jumpsuit combined with my favorite over the knee gladiators and the latest entry on my bags collection the BCBG burgundy bag ♥. I was searching for a white a pair of over the knee wedge gladiators and nothing, until it came to my mind that I can design and make my own pair :D

They are extremely comfortable and they can be also combined for both days and nights outfits. Well, at least this is how I can see them because most probably the next time I will wear them, I will include a pair of short jeans and a casual blouse or shirt.

I wish you all a wonderful week and stay inspired because for the moment I have to go. See you again soon!
Kisses, Manuella ♥

OOTD: Casual Weekend ♥


Hi loves! This Sunday started as horrible as possible, from the weather point of view. Don`t worry, in the end is not that bad since the weather improved and right now it seems that we will have a wonderful weekend.
Today I want to present you my latest outfit that was extremely comfortable and casual. That "touch" was added by my Inia Lavin Statement Gold Fringe Boots, that I completely adore and that are also available on nude tones :D You can see them also Here.

This was the outfit that I wore yesterday by the lake at a wonderful evening party at Funky Lounge Herasrau. I wanted to take more pictures there, but it seems that the entire city was there and it was extremely crowded but full of friends and people that came with the same interest: To have fun and to spend a wonderful Saturday together.

I will leave you know, because I want to enjoy the rest of the day outside in the sun :D
Kisses, Manuella

But, everything will be managed and I hope you`ll enjoy it as much  as I do.

Inia Lavin and fringes for this season


Hi girls! I hope you all enjoy this wonderful weekend, because it`s extremely gorgeous outside. In my case, I decided to make this post before going out and tell you a bit about my small project that was a bit secret until now. About two months ago, I`ve told you that I`m dedicating my time to something special, that  takes me a lot of time and energy.

Well, it`s time to share more with you. You know, I have a thing for shoes and especially for heels. So taking into consideration my passion, I decided to create my very first Shoes Collection, called "Inia Lavin" with all the pairs being made out of leather 100%. If you wonder what is the connection between this name and myself, simply turn the name and you`ll find that it becomes "Lavinia". Is my second name and I know that just a few of you knows it, but it`s time to make it famous :)).
Maybe you have seen lately on my instagram account preview pictures with some of the shoes that were released last week :D There are more to come but today I will present you my very first pair.

I love that this season fringes make a statement and I decided to wear them with style, by adding a wonderful touch to a simple pair of sandals. For the moment they are available on khaki and red but also they can be customized according to your preferences. For more info about them and about the pairs seen on instagram, you can email me at manuela.lupascu91@gmail.com and I will answer your questions with pleasure.

I hope you like my work and can`t wait to see your impressions :D
Kisses, Manuella ♥
