“Sometimes, you need to step outside, get some air, and remind yourself of who you are and who you want to be.”  Scott Fitzgerald

When a woman feels perfectly dressed, she can forget about herself. This is called charm. The more you forget about yourself, more charm you will have.
The only way to learn about our passions is to pay attention to our feelings. Only with patience and perseverance you can acquire results. Most of the time our mind can’t decide what it wants, so it needs principles to help it express itself in a balanced way.
If we focus on the present and leave the past behind, we could realize the power that we hold and more things we will be able to accomplish.



“Life gave us, one way or another, moments in which everything we’ve done had the transparency of a crystal and the hearing of a blue sky”.
This material was in the wardrobe more than a month, waiting and waiting. Even I wasn’t sure what I was waiting. I unfolded and folded it countless times.
That day I sew a dress and I was very disappointed of the end result, Ginger was all over the material, stealing my needles and more to that the sewing machine was stitching it wrong. Honestly that dress was a total failure, I needed to start something fresh.
Never doubt the success of your projects. For me, this dress was a success, everything went smoothly and I finished it in a hour.
I used a gradient pleated silk material, very nice at touch and with a wonderful texture. Thoughts have an incredible power.
If you say to yourself that you are not a creative person, you will never become one. Every one of us is gifted with resources, talent and creativity even if we don’t realize this.

Unicul mod pentru a ne descoperi pasiunile, este de a acorda atentie sentimentelor noastre.Numai rabdarea si perseverenta pot da rezultate.De multe ori mintea noastra nu stie ce vrea, are nevoie de principii ca sa o ajute sa se exprime intr-un mod echilibrat.
Daca ne-am focaliza pe prezent si sa lasam trecutul in urma, am constientiza puterea pe care o avem de a realiza lucrurile.
“Viata ne-a dat tuturor, intr-un mod sau altul, clipe in care tot ceea ce faceam avea transparenta cristalului si auzul unui cer fara nori”
A stat acest material in dulap mai bine de o luna, asteptam si asteptam..nici eu nu stiu ce asteptam.L-am desfacut si l-am impaturat de nenumarate ori.In acea zi am croit o fusta si nu am fost pe deplin multumita, Ginger imi tot deranja materialul imi fura acele de gamalie, iar apoi masina de cusut imi incurca cusatura.Sincer un esec total aceea am mai vrut sa lucrez la ea, trebuia sa incep altceva.
Niciodata sa nu va indoiti de reusita proiectelor voastre.Pentru mine aceasta rochita este o reusita, totul a mers de la sine, am terminat-o intr-o ora.Am folosit matase plisata in degrade, un material foarte placut la atingere cu o textura superba.Gandurile au o putere incredibila.Daca va spuneti ca nu sunteti o persoana creativa, nu veti deveni astfel nicodata.Fiecare dintre noi suntem inzestrati cu vaste resurse precum talentul si creativitate fie ca stim sau nu.


Best wishes, CR

  1. From the cover picture: “Vision is the art of seeing the invisible.”
    I am trying to get rid of the habit of assuming others can see what could be, like I do. I seek out people for help, present them my story in order to invoke sympathy, and don’t realize that they operate on a much lower level, way more egoistical, probably unaware of that, thinking it’s ‘normal’.
    On the other side, I habitually see what could be, and rarely can I help people bring it out in themselves, because of said widespread mindset that makes people sabotage themselves, too, only seeing what they are at the time.
    I have learned to instead play an act, present what is not reality yet, to make it easy for others to see me like a businessman sees a worthy investment opportunity.
    It’s an alienating experience. Especially since I myself have been ostracized for being an egoist in my youth. Suddenly egoism is the new black and I didn’t get the memo.
    But this also gives me more confirmation than ever that I am a saint, and that I can abandon some altruism if I deem it necessary for self-fulfillment without having to feel like a devil.

    1. Who in the freak are you, I have never met another person who feels exactly the way I do, almost word for word. especially “assuming others can see what could be, like I do. I seek out people for help, present them my story in order to invoke sympathy, and don’t realize that they operate on a much lower level” Here is the link to my blog, I would love to have yours as well.

      Hugs from another person who feels you.


      1. Thank you for the feedback. It seems there are more people like us than it appears at first. There’s a virtually unlimited creative potential among humankind, stifled by the rigid structures around it.
        I’ve put your blogs in browser tabs and will check them out once I find the energy. (One of my frequent problems.)
        You can find all my web presences via a click on my name. I’ve been relatively active on Twitter lately.

  2. Thanks for the follow! Loved your blog. Reflecting on your statement: “When a woman feels perfectly dressed, she can forget about herself.” and letting it sink in. I tend to spend too much time in my mind, too less in the physical world, but aim to get in touch with my physical self this year, focusing on nurturing not just my mind but also my body.

  3. found your blog through your follow. you have such a lovely site here. such creativity and this dress is stunning! I love the ombre–it turned out great. yes, you are right, we must believe in our creativity for it to manifest itself. as another poster mentioned, your water color design on the left is gorgeous! looking forward to seeing more of your creations. and thanks for following me at the waxing poetic project.

  4. What a gorgeous dress! And a gorgeous blog at that. I love the overall look of your blog, with the watercolor fashionista an all. I came here to thank for the follow but I just might stick around. It doesn’t come across much in my blog but I am very fond of fashion. I just feel like I am not photogenic enough to do fashion in my blog. Clearly that’s not a problem for you C:

    website is wonderful, as well as the content!

  8. My partner and I absolutely love your blog and find
    almost all of your post’s to be what precisely I’m looking for.
    Would you offer guest writers to write content for yourself?
    I wouldn’t mind publishing a post or elaborating on a number of the subjects you write regarding here.

    Again, awesome website!
