Just a glimpse 

It’s almost Wednesday, so hang in there Lovies! 

Every time I say I’ll be updating you on my looks and other affairs, a new pile of work ends up crashing my plans! I’m always racing the clock but today I took the time to take some snaps of my look. Just as I was getting excited about the warm weather, we got snow (luckily it melted), but the temperatures remain too cold for me. I’m wearing a Forever21 wool dress in cream I got a few years ago for the coldest days (the only turtle neck I tolerate), black thermo leggings, Guess boots and coat, and a Michael Kors bag. 

I’m already shopping for spring and I’m looking forward to sharing more looks and posting as much as I’d like to! 
Love, Silvia Mèlange

Red carpet look fw2016

Hello, Lovies. As Fashion Week Sofia took place last week, I figured it’s about time I share my first look.

This is the First Fashion Week I participate in with a strict formal dress code. I wasn’t sure what to expect so I placed my bet on a gorgeous silk dress from Bebe (Cocoa Camilla), and my trusty Guess open toe stilettos. Adding some bling with Zara earrings and here is the finished look:

 

 

Stay tuned for more looks from Fashion Week Sofia 2016 and a piece covering my thoughts and impressions from the event.
Stay glamorous, Silvia Mèlange

 

 

 

 

От червения килим: Седмица на модата в София (есен-зима 2016) 



Привет, Любовчета! Седмицата на модата в София приключи и смятам, че е време да ви покажа първият ми тоалет от вечерта.

Това е първата ми модна седмица, изискваща официален дрес код и не бях съвсем сигурна какво да очаквам. Заложих на копринена рокля от Bebe (модел: Cocoa Camilla), и удобните ми стилето обувки от Guess. Добавих малко блясък с обици от Zara и ето завършеният тоалет❣


Оглеждайте се за пост, в който ще споделя впечатленията ми от събитието и още тоалети от червения килим!
С любов, Силвия Меланж

Last beach day with H&M

It’s my last day by the beach for this year, so I decided to wear my favorite piece of the Summer. 

I’m totally obsessed with this kimono style dress I got from H&M in the beginning of the season. The color patterns and the length allow it to be worn as a dress, with shorts, leggings or as a beach cover up. The unusual design, combined with the bright colors won’t go out of style for years to come-that’s a promise! For this look, I combined it with Guess flip flops, a beach tote from Victoria’s Secret and Oakley shades. 



My Summer by the Bulgarian seaside was absolutely amazing and I want to take this time to thank everyone who helped me create memories and discover new places❣

Until next year, Silvia Mèlange 

    
           

       Последен плажен ден с H&M



Днес е последният ми плажен ден за годината. Реших, че би било уместно да приключа морската си ваканция с любимата ми дреха за лятото.

Обожавам роклята стил “кимоно” на която попаднах в H&M Витошка в началото на сезона.

 Цветовете и дължината позволяват да се носи като рокля, след плаж, с шорти и дори с клин при по-хладно време. Свежия дизайн и страхотния флирт на цветовете я прави абсолютно универсална и ви гарантирам, че няма да излезе от мода с години! Днес я комбинирах с чехли от Guess, плажна чанта от Victoria’s Secret и очила Oakley. 

Споделям и снимки от разходката ми из Пловдив от май тази година, когато не беше достатъчно топло за кимоното, но нямах търпение да я нося! 

Тази година посетих българското Черноморие за първи път от 2008 година. Преживяването беше страхотно и искам да благодаря на всички, които по един или друг начин станаха част от това страхотно приключение! 

До нови срещи! Силвия Меланж 

Beach Monday 

Few things measure up to the feeling of waking up on a Monday, knowing the toughest decision you have to make today is which beach to go to and where to have dinner! Not trying to brag but yours truly is on a much needed vacation, exploring the Bulgarian seaside. I haven’t visited since 2007 so I have a lot of catching up to do! 

One of my favorite things about going to the beach, besides going, is getting dressed for the walk there. I miss the days when I lived a block away from the beach and my wardrobe was consistent of 80% coverups, beach dresses and over 50 pairs of flip flops. I still manage to include coverups and see-through dresses and blouses in my urban wardrobe with the inevitable black top underneath but it’s just not the same.  

Today I paired up one of my favorite pieces from Macy’s with shorts from Zara, Guess flip-flops and shades from Oakley. 


I’m not going to reveal exact details of my location. I’ll just say it’s a beach in Old Town Nessebar only locals know about ;] Empty beach and clean water- what more can you want?! 
Love from the Black Sea, Silvia Mèlange 

                   Плажен понеделник




Малко неща могат да бъдат сравнени с чувството да се събудиш в понеделник сутрин, знаейки че най-трудното решение за деня ще бъде къде да отидеш на плаж и къде да вечеряш! 

Не се опитвам да се хваля, но моя милост е на заслужена ваканция, наслаждавайки се на българското Черноморие. Не съм посещавала от 2007 г. така че имам много да наваксвам! 

Едно от любимите ми неща (освен самото плажуване), е избора на облекло за разходката до пясъка. Липсват ми дните, когато живеех на една пряка от плажа и гардеробът ми се състоеше от около 80% плажни шалове, рокли и над 50 чифта чехли. Все още успявам да вмъкна прозиращи блузи и материи в градският ми гардероб, но не е същото благодарение на неизменния черен потник отдолу. 

Днес комбинирах една от любимите ми плажни туники, флорален десен от Macy’s, с къси черни шорти Zara, джапанки от Guess и очила Oakley. 

Няма да разкривам детайли от точната ми локация. Само ще споделя, че е таен плаж в старата част на Несебър, за който знаят шепа местни хора. Пространство и чиста вода, какво друго е нужно?! 

С Любов от Черноморието, Силвия Меланж 

Stylish travels 

Happy Tuesday- Shoesday, Lovies! 

As I promised, I’ll keep you up to date on my adventures frequently this month! So far, my seaside trip has been absolutely epic! I finally have decent wifi and enough peace and quiet to share a travel outfit with you. When you know it’s gonna be a long trip, it’s important to be comfortable. Style doesn’t always mean walking 10 cm off the ground with perfect hair and make up. As seen below, sometimes a tinted moisturizer, hair in a bun and a basic look is where the charm is! 

This is me after going to bed at 1 am, waking up at 330 am to catch a train at 5 am, spent a day exploring Burgas on foot (a detailed entry on the city coming soon), and switched two buses to get to my final destination- the beach! 

Outfit details: 

Jean Pascale cardigan, Zara basic top, Guess denim and flip-flops and Michael Kors bag


Jewelry details:

My Name Necklace, LiveLokai bracelet and mini pearl earrings from Swan

More to come very soon, so stay tuned! Add me on snapchat and Instagram (@SilviaMelange) for sneak peaks and daily updates!

Love, Silvia Mèlange 
P.S. If you made it till the end, here’s a snap of me on the 5 am train. This is the fastest speed it would go 🙀

imperfections are totally okay!! Mornings suck!

Office morning to a Saturday morning: the walk of shame

Saturday morning, 8 am and yours truly is third in line at Starbucks.. In Friday morning’s casual office look! The only difference between me and the two ladies in front- I didn’t look like it! No heels over my shoulder, no smudged mascara. Ignoring the voice of shame in my head, I was kinda proud of myself. 

The naked truth is, I wasn’t going planing on a crazy night. The original plan was a double date at the end of a long week. Somehow it turned into a quick visit to my favorite bar. It wasn’t one drink and two hours later, I found myself posing in the middle of the street on the way to my favorite club. 

top: Mango denim: Zara shoes: Bianco footwear bag: Guess

I had so much fun, ended up dancing the night away and for a first time in a while, I closed the club down at 7 something in the morning 😂

I thought my walk of shame is leaving the club at such an hour in yesterday morning’s attire. Then I realized, I don’t blend in with the parade of pale faces in tight dresses and messy hair! I managed to leave the house looking perfectly acceptable for a casual Friday at the office, partying all night and still looking like a workaholic on Saturday morning! 

 On the way to Starbucks I took another pic, just to have a base of comparasent:

The secret to my look: a good concealer and the right tinted moisturizer, combined with a waterproof eyeliner and mascara. Don’t forget to drink 200 ml of water for every drink you have throughout the night! 

Cheers, Silvia Mèlange 

Midweek shenanigans 

Wednesday night and your best friend who you haven’t seen (Skype doesn’t count) since 2013, is in town for two days. What do you do?! You get online and you find the most fabulous place having a “Ladies night” and get ready for an adventure. It’s the middle of the week and your head is up in your work projects so you need a plan of action:

 A quick shower upon arriving home, followed by a strong iced coffee can do miracles after even the roughest work days! After you are all pampered and refreshed you have a totally different outlook on life! 

The following tip never fails me: even if you are exhausted and you feel kinda down, dress up and before you know it, you will feel just as glamorous as you look!

 Go ahead, slip on that gorgeous JLo Collection dress, put your favorite almost-summer heels (in my case an open toe Guess stilettos), pair it up with a cute clutch (faux fur) and add some statement jewelry. 

My “theme” for this summer?! Flirt❣ Flirt with colors, lengths, fabrics and boys if you are single ;] But focus on the top part of my statement! 

Your cab’s here!

Xoxo, Silvia Mèlange 


speaking of flirting



Bright colors and ancient ruins

Happy Monday, Lovies! 

Yours truly had a four day weekend last week! I went on a little get away in Plovdiv, Bulgaria. It’s the 4th oldest city in the world so we did a lot of exploring! I’ll be sharing my experience and restaurant recommendations this week, so be on the lookout for that. I did a lot of traveling this last month but I also had some free time to walk around, so I’ll be catching you up on that as well! 

Old town Plovdiv is a truly magical place but Nebet Tepe Hill took my breath away! It’s the remains of an ancient castle (over 7000 years old!), and it reveals a gorgeous panorama of the modern part of the city. I chose to use it as a back drop for my outfit pics for you guys! 

We had a lot of climbing to do and most of the roads in the old part of town are the authentic or reconstructed Roman stone roads. So I did something every fashion blogger does, whether they admit it or not- I wore my comfy orthopedic Geox flats for the long explorations, and only brought my heels for the outfit shots! Originally I was only going to post the pics shot for the blog, but Plovdiv’s scenery is so beautiful, I feel like I would be unfair to you guys if I don’t share some random favorites 🙂 

The path up to Nebet Tepe Hill


The view from the top where the fortress once stood


You can see why this is my favorite spot in the city 🙂 

Now some pics and details from my look:

I wore a kimono inspired dress, a flawless color blend from H&M, Banana republic leggings, Guess (Confidential cross body bag in rose pink), and Oakley shades. My heels are from Esprit and the adorable silver flats are Geox, as mentioned above. Details are the classic Lokai bracelet, Swarovski earrings and a custom made name necklace. 


For more shots from the city, follow my Instagram and snapchat story (@SilviaMelange) and keep an eye on the blog! I wish all of you a fabulous week and let me know in the comments what you think of my pics 🙂 Are you into History, legends and ancient civilizations? What’s your favorite part of History? I’d love to have a discussion and see how many of you are travel junkies like moi?
Xoxo, Silvia Mèlange

A rainy Thursday

Hey Lovies! Unfortunately, winter is not quite over yet. Today I had a lot of errands to do but I decided to take a few quick snaps on my way out. Comfy and warm are a priority when it comes to rainy Thursdays 🙂

 I’m wearing my favorite riding boots from Guess, Jessica Simpson wool coat (no one is happier for the return of the bell sleeves more than this gal!), basic Zara v-neck sweater, Gucci denim, Oscar shades and a spacious bag from Nine West. 

I hope everyone is getting ready for Spring and making the best out of the gloomy weather! 

Xo, Silvia Mèlange

  
 
  

In and out of the office

Happy Spring, Lovies! 

As the temperatures increase, so do our post office hours commitments. I like to chose my outfits wisely, combining a stylish-office and a-drink-after-work vibe in one look. It’s not always easy to pull off, so there’s nothing wrong with stuffing your clutch and a piece of statement jewelry in your work bag for later. Here’s the drill: before heading out switch all of your essentials from you purse to the clutch (keys, wallet, charger, lip gloss) and leave your bag at the office. Just make sure next day’s office outfit matches the bag you left the previous night ;]  Another tip from yours truly: always keep a pair of classic heels and flat shoes at the office, updating them based on the season of course! 

In last week’s shenanigans I’m wearing a cream Ralph Lauren top with skinny JBrand jeans, Guess ankle booties, Victoria’s Secret bow clutch and custom made heart shaped earrings. 

I hope everyone is enjoying the arrival of Spring as much as I am! I also want to say, I’m sorry for being absent all week but I’d rather be gone for a bit and then spend time writing a good post, than to give you, guys, random content or scheduled posts every few hours. On that note, if you miss me, feel free to follow me on Instagram (@SilviaMelange) for daily updates, lifestyle posts and to follow my 100 Happy Days journey. 

With Love, Silvia Mèlange
