Lady in red 

Happy Sunday, my Lovies!

With a little delay, I’m finally sharing my look from Sofia Fashion Week closing night. I’m wearing a gorgeous red dress from Zara (in stores now) and caramel brown sandals from TopShop. Sometimes less is more ;]

I had a blast and danced on the runway with the models:

 

Love, Silvia Mèlange

Честит понеделник, Любовчета!

С малко закъснение, споделям тоалета ми от последната вечер на Седмицата на модата в София. Избрах божествена рокля от Зара (вече я няма в българските магазини), и карамелено-кафяви сандали от ТопШоп.

Прекарах си незабравимо и дори танцувах с моделите на самия подиум, както виждате от снимките по-горе.

С обич, Силвия Меланж

My month in Instagram posts *August*

Happy Sunday, my Lovies!

As some of you know August is my “lazy” month, no work and lots of adventures and explorations! This year I visited the Bulgarian seaside for a first time since 2008. It may not seem like it was that long ago but in a country where tourism is currently developing and is the fastest growing industry 8 years is the equivalent of 80! 

Originally, I was going to update you with posts once a week, covering the places I visit. Then the beach happened and I decided I’m going to show you some cool things on my favorite platforms- Instagram and snapchat (@SilviaMelange). 

This was the longest vacation I’ve taken since I was 15 and yet, I’m not quite ready to get back on the grind. Can’t Summer just stay forever?! 

As you can tell, I have quite a few amazing stories, locations and outfits to share in the month of September. I’ll  catch you up on Nessebar, a magical island and one of the oldest cities in the world! Do some partying in Sunny beach and explore Burgas- the seaside capital of Bulgaria. Keep an eye out as this week, I’m coming back full force❣

How was your summer? Where did you go? Did you get some rest or are you going somewhere in September for a hipster style vacation? Let me know in the comments section below and don’t forget to follow me on social media. 

Get ready, September! 

Love, Silvia Mèlange 

   Моят месец в инстаграм *Август*



Честита неделя, Любовчета! 

Както някои от вас знаят, август е мързеливият ми месец- пътувания и приключения! Тази година посетих родното ни Черноморие за първи път от 2008 година. Може би не звучи като голяма пауза, но за държава, в която туризмът се развива с невероятна скорост, 8 години са равносилни на 80! 

Когато заминавах, планът ми беше веднъж седмично да споделям с вас къде съм и какво нося. После се случи плажът и реших, че ще ви “разхождам” с помощта на любимите ми платформи- инстаграм и снапчат (@SilviaMelange). 

Както снимките по-горе подсказват, имам доста истории, места и тоалети за споделяне в блога през септември! Ще ви покажа Несебър- вълшебен остров с богата история и един от най-старите градове в света! Ще купонясаме малко в Слънчев Бряг и ще посетим една от морските ни столици-Бургас. Последвайте блога ми, за да знаете кога поствам ❣

Как беше вашето лято? Посетихте ли някое място, за което трябва да знам? Или броите дните до ваканция през септември, докато всички останали се борят със след-морска депресия в офиса? Разкажете ми в коментарите отдолу! 

С любов, Силвия Меланж 



Old Town Nessebar *Fashion Explorations*

Rainy days happen. Besides, sun through clouds is the perfect light for a fashion blogger! 

Sure, I’d love to just be lazy at the beach but instead of complaining and watching movies all day, I decided to grab an umbrella and get lost in the ancient streets of Old Town Nessebar. The small island, now connected to the main land, is in the UNESCO World Heritage sites list, housing over 3 millennia of history. It’s an honor to just be able to walk on these roads and it provides many perfect backdrops for photos 😉 For today’s session, I’m using the the Old Bishopic St. Sofia church, one of the oldest Eastern-Orthodox churches in the world. 

I’m wearing a sea themed Angelo Marani top, Sisley-Benetton kaki shorts, gold wedges from Ralph Lauren and a Coach bag to complete the look. 

As most of you know by now, I love to travel and ancient cities and ruins are my weakness. When exploring places like this, it’s important to wear comfortable and reliable shoes. I prefer flats but these wedges are my feet’s bffs and current summer favorites! 

Stay tuned as there’s a special Travel entry covering the town and its fascinating history and landscapes! If you can’t wait, follow me on Instagtam and snapchat (@SilviaMelange) for daily updates. 

How’s your summer going? Did you visit a hidden gem you think I should know about? Let me know in the comments and feel free to share what do you think of this look? 

Stylish travels, Silvia Mèlange 

               Несебър-стария град

              *Стилни пътешествия*



Дъждът е нещо неизбежно. Плюс това слънце през облаци е перфектната светлина за модния блогър! 

Да, бих предпочела да се излежавам на плажа, но вместо това грабнах чадъра и излязох с намерението да се загубя сред древните улици. Малкият остров, с над 3 хилядолетна история е в листа на Юнеско за световни древни селища, карайки те да се чувстваш специален само, защото стъпваш по улиците му. Сред безбройните красиви изгледи, избрах църквата Св. София, една от най-старите православно християнски църкви на света. 

Облечена съм с топ от моряшката колекция на Angelo Marani, панталонки от колаборацията на Benetton и Sisley, обувки Ralph Lauren, завършвайки визията с чанта Coach. 

Както вероятно сте забелязали, обожавам да пътувам и древните селища са ми слабост. Когато посещавате подобни места, удобните обувки са ключови. Обикновено предпочитам плоски обувки, но тези платформи са най-добрите приятели на краката ми това лято! 

Абонирайте се за блога ми, следва статия фокусирана върху Несебър и богата история и гледки. Ако сте нетърпеливи, последвайте ме в инстаграм и снапчат (@SilviaMelange) за всекидневни постове. 

Как прекарвате вашето лято? Някакви тайни места, които смятате, че трябва да посетя? Оставете ми коментар или изкажете вашето мнение за днешната ми визия 💋

С обич, Силвия Меланж

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

My month in Instagram posts *March*

Hello my Lovies! 

The girliest month of the year is over and Spring has arrived in my part of the world! March was amazing to me! I received a lot of flowers, did some more traveling, wore amazing outfits and hung out with some amazing friends 🙂 

Here’s a quick Instagram update for those of you who are not following me (@SilviaMelange). Hope everyone had an amazing month and the ladies felt extra special ❤ 

With love, Silvia Mèlange
   
 
  

My month in Instagram posts *February*

Now that the month of Love is over, it’s time for Girl Power month 🙂 

February was an eventful month for me! I worked my butt off, had a lovely Valentine’s Day at home, I reached over 2000 followers on Instagram and I visited a few places. I’m enjoying a four day weekend so I’m gonna use it to relax and catch you guys up on everything! I hope you all had an amazing and productive month and just like me, are getting excited for Spring’s arrival! If you are not following me on Instagram (@SilviaMelange), here’s a few snaps highlighting my February! 

Xoxo, Silvia Mèlange

  
  
  
 

Nightlife in Wiesbaden (A visitor’s guide)

Hey guys! Today I will be sharing my impressions from Wiesbaden’s night life. I was in the area for a week so I gotta tell you, between Frankfurt and Wiesbaden that was a lot of bar and club hopping ;] I love variety so I always try to experience these three basic types of places the least everywhere I go; local, international and high end. That rule of mine goes for everything: bars, restaurants, museums, tourist spots etc. So here are the nightlife locations I recommend in Wiesbaden, Germany:

 

  1. Pupasch Wiesbaden

 

Literally translated, the name means “fart a$$”. It’s totally worth visiting even if it’s just to say you partied at a pub with such a hilarious name! You also get a German style shot at the door just because you came in! It’s a cool place where you can meet a wide variety of people and everyone speaks English. There’s a dance floor and quieter areas if you wish to have a nice conversation while enjoying a German beer and/or munchie foods. Very affordable and fun to hang out!

 

  1. Manoamano

 

If you are looking for a chill, lounge type of place with a huge variety of cocktails from all over the world (made right btw) and countless burger options, this is the place for you! The friendly English speaking staff and the affordable prices make Manoamano the perfect pit-stop for travelers and it’s located close to the major train station. Bonus points from me for having indoor and outdoor options, I will be returning in the summer!

 

  1. Park Café

 

Glam vibe, high-end interior design and a fab drink selection. There’s a spacious dance-floor and stashed-away corners. Park Café is one of the hottest spots in downtown Wiesbaden and I highly advice you to make a reservation prior to visiting. There’s a strict dress-code so bring your A game!

 

  1. Das Lokal

 

An awesome dive bar with delicious German food and plenty of beers to choose from! Perfect for pregame or a brunch with friends after a crazy night out!

 

  1. Irish Pub

 

The full definition of one! From the beer, to the hole-in-the-wall appearance and feeling like you’ve been here before, like you belong, as soon as you walk in. Great live music, open mics and karaoke nights. It’s loud enough to enjoy the music but you don’t have to yell in someone’s ear to have a conversation. The Irish Pub turned into my instant favorite so be sure to check it out!

 

  1. Scarabea Orient lounge

 

If you are into shisha bars, that’s the place to visit! Chill lounge atmosphere with middle-eastern music mixes and the hookahs tasting like you bit into a fruit. You can meet all kinds of fascinating people here so be prepared to hang out longer than you originally planned!

 

  1. Europalace Mainz-Kastel

 

Okay, that’s a 10 minute cab ride from Wiesbaden. There’s a freaking pirate ship in this club!!!!! There are two main halls- techno and hip-hop. Then there are smaller rooms with German music, disco and more! Another “It” place on this list also because of the list of celebrities constantly visiting or preforming in the club! There’s no drink the bartenders can’t mix and there are plenty of affordable options as well as high-end liquors and champagne. Keep in mind they also have a dress-code and it’s wise to make a reservation, especially if you plan on staying all night.

 

I’m sure I missed plenty of cool locations but I only had so much time! Let me know in the comments what places should I visit next time I’m the area? Do you agree with my list?

-Party rock on, Silvia Mélange

 Channeling my inner Olivia Pope (fall edition) 

Happy Friday eve you guys! Channeling my inner Olivia Pope in my office wear today! Who doesn’t have a girl crush on Kerry Washington and her onscreen persona?! Olivia Pope has a mind bending career and impeccable style: ever noticed how she is at the bar looking fabulous and 5 minutes later she has to give a press conference at the White House, wearing the same outfit and looking amaze balls?! Adding the way she carries herself and her love for wine factors and she is officially crowned  My spirit animal or “goals af” as they say. The best part- When I looked at my pictures that same night, everything reminded me of her and it wasn’t intentional! I also learned you cannot go wrong with a pencil skirt 😉

Stay stylish! With Love, Silvia Mèlange

coat and skirt: Zara low cut sweater: H&M boots and bag: Guess

Scroll past the funny looking text for more pics 🙂

Честито петъчно навечерие, приятели! Излъчвам моята вътрешна Оливия Поуп в този офис тоалет. Кой не си пада момичешки по Кери Уошингтън и телевизионната й самоличност?! Оливия Поуп има шеметна кариера и безпогрешен стил. Забелязвали ли сте как седи в бара, изглеждайки зашеметяващо и пет минути по-късно дава прес-конференция в Белия дом със същия тоалет, изглеждайки безупречно? Добавяйки класата й и любовта й към виното, Оливия Поуп е моята муза! Когато погледнах снимките от обедната ми почивка, автоматично се сетих за нея 🙂

Бъдете стилни! С любов, Силвия Меланж
