A quick TBT

Congrats, Lovies, we almost made it to Friday!! 

If you follow me on social media (@SilviaMelange), you know I made It home safe and sound. I have to catch you up on a few things but for now, here’s a throwback Thursday look from my Wiesbaden explorations. I’m wearing a deep blue knit dress, Nine West cowboy boots and Zara statement necklace and wind stopper jacket:

Exploring the Rhine river 

Happy Sunday, Lovies! 

In case you follow me on social media (@SilviaMelange), you know by now I’m exploring Hessen, Germany. 

The other day I went up the Rhine river to visit the statue of Loreley and the countless castles along the way. I was hypnotized by the view but I didn’t forget all of you as I sometimes do (guilty!), so I snapped a few pics of my look. I don’t think it’s even worth mentioning how important it is to be dressed warm for outdoor explorations in Germany this time of the year! I was lucky there was no wind so my Zara jacket came, revealing an oversized sweater from Tommy Hilfiger, paired with thermo leggings from H&M and knit Uggs. 

Excuse the face bc the hair is fabulous! 

Like every self respecting fashion blogger, I sometimes search for things on the ground 😂

Visiting this area was a magical experience I recommend to everyone who happens to be in town. Even when it’s chilly, it’s the perfect place for meditation and soul searching or as I call it- getting lost in nature. 

As the end of the year is approaching, we all need some peace and quiet to reflect and plan our next move. What’s your favorite nature spot to chill at? How do you feel about 2016 ? What are you looking forward to in 2017 ? Let me know in the comments below!

Разходки из крайбрежието на река Рейн



Честита неделя, Любовчета! Ако ме следвате из социалните медии (@SilviaMelange), знаете, че в момента пътешествам из Хесен, Германия. 

Преди няколко дни посетих статуята на Лорелай и множеството околни замъци по крайбрежието на река Рейн. Гледката беше хипнотична, но не ви забравих както се е случвало (виновна съм!) и направих няколко снимки на тоалета ми. Не мисля, че си струва да споменавам колко важни са топлите дрехи по това време на годината. Имах късмет- денят не беше ветровит и времето ми позволи да сваля дебелото яке от Zara и да ви покажа грамаден пуловер от Tommy Hilfiger, термо клин H&M, и плетени ботуши от Ugg. 

Като всеки, уважаващ себе си моден блогър понякога търся неизвестни неща по земята:

Горещо ви препоръчвам да посетите статуята на Лорелай и околията ако ви се отдаде подобна възможност. Мястото е сякаш заредено с магия, перфектно за медитация или както аз казвам- да се изгубиш сред природата. Краят на годината наближава и всеки от нас има нужда от място, където да се отпусне и да рефлектира, планувайки наближаващата 2017-та година. Кое е вашето тайно местенце сред природата? Как се чувствате относно отминаващата 2016-та? Споделете в коментарите долу! 

С любов, Силвия Меланж 

Travel style

Greetings, Lovies! 

As I mentioned in my last post, I got to travel around for Thanksgiving. Matter of fact, I’m still exploring around but more on that later. Lufthansa chose a hell of a time to strike but were quick to rebook me with the only plane flying out that same day! I found the positive in a negative situation- I got the opportunity to take a few shots of my look while boarding the plane! 


I’m wearing a Guess knit from a few years ago, Zara skinny jeans, Ugg knits and a Nine West tote. 

I have lots of travel tips and experiences to share with you so stay tuned! If you crave daily updates, follow me on snapchat and Instagram (@SilviaMelange). 

Happy travels, Silvia Mèlange

              Стилни пътешествия 


Привет, Любовчета! 

Както споменах в последният ми пост, обикалям наоколо 🙂 Луфтханза избра ужасно време, за да стачкува, но бързо ми резервираха място в единственият друг самолет, излитащ същия ден! Аз от моя страна успях да намеря позитивното в негативна ситуация- две страхотни снимки докато се качвахме на борда! 

Облечена съм с плетена жилетка от Guess, скини дънки Zara, плетени ботуши от Ugg и Nine West чанта. 

Имам тонове съвети за пътувания и лични приключения, които ще споделя с вас съвсем скоро! Следвайте ме в инстаграм и снапчат (@SilviaMelange) за всекидневни постове!

Весели пътешествия, Силвия Меланж 

My month in Instagram posts *July*

Hello, lovies! 

Lately all I do is apologize for delaying posts, so I want to start off by thanking you for your patience and for the instalove I keep getting ❤️ Now to catch you up on my month!

July was amazing! It started off with a virtual reality test and a crazy night out and it ended with an epic trip across the country, blending into the peak of tourist season by the Black Sea. I celebrated the forth of July, then got right into work mode, sneaking shoefies (and getaways), while preparing for the epic trip I’m currently on. For live action and details, follow me on Instagram and snapchat (@SilviaMelange). 

Brace yourselves as August is going to be all about catching you up and sharing experiences from all the amazing places I am exploring as you are reading this post. I’ll have some extra travel tips and ideas for you and as per usual, fashion advice and inspiration for these long hours on the road. 

How was your month? Any vacation ideas or stories to share? Let me know below!! 

Last but not least; July was my first blogaversary! I can’t believe it’s been a whole year since I started sharing my life with the world! A lot has changed and all of it for the best, I’m happy to admit! Looking at old pictures, I can’t help but notice how much my personal style and art has developed and continues growing. You guys continue being my inspiration and motivation and I’d never be where I am today without all of you! 

May your August be as epic as mine! 

With all the Love in the world,  Silvia Mèlange 

Plovdiv, Bulgaria: The time traveling entry

Ancient and Eternal- the city’s motto fits perfectly. Also known as “the city of the seven hills” due to its location, Plovdiv is the second largest city in Bulgaria and in the top five oldest cities in the world. 

It’s one of my favorite cities and last time I was here was the day after my 18th birthday; the day I fell in love with the way ancient and modern history blend in like it was meant to look this way even 5000 years ago. 

The city consists of two parts: old town and modern day Plovdiv. As you guys should know by now I’m a sucker for history, so I was quick to put on my walking shoes and “get lost” in the most ancient part of the city. 

Starting at the East gate which still has the original pavement from over 6000 years ago when the area was part of the Roman Empire. The East gate was the shopping district, housing only the wealthiest families with the road, leading to the amphitheater and the coliseum up the hill. 

Crossing the modern day road, I climbed my first hill, a gorgeous blend between the ancient roman road(5000 yo), Turkish Empire castle walls (built in the 15th century) and the 150 year old post slavery houses. 

Continuing up, I have to note my favorite feature about post-slavery houses from the beginning of the 20th century. You will notice on the pic below how one part of the house is constructed outward- a traditional Gossip room. What is that you ask?- after about 500 years of slavery, the Bulgarian aristocracy was fast developing. The socialites spent their days drinking tea and coffee in said rooms, keeping track on everything happening below them on the then Main Street of Plovdiv, who was spotted with whom, the works. A whole room designed exclusively for a vintage (or maybe original is the word), Gossip Girl! 

We reached our destination- Nebet Tepe. 

Believed to be a magical place, not just because of the view. This hill is said to be a sacred ground for ancient Thracian tribes, who enhabited Bulgaria 7000-8000 years ago. It’s believed the goddess Hekate preformed rituals here so the place is loaded with positive energy. Another theory states that’s the whole reason ancient Romans chose it as the main fortress in the area.  


Tunnel entrance, dating back to Roman times, believed to be a part of an underground tunnel system, spreading throughout Europe

Just a few blocks up another hill, one can find the magnificent amphitheater, still performing over 5000 years after it was originally built. The entrance is only €5 per person and it’s an absolute must-see! 

Our guide was a local ❤️

Another fabulous street down before the majestic Coliseum:

The original Coluseum remodel: just thinking that 5000 years ago, real gladiators walked these roads, sacrifices took place, people walked, preparing to face or possibly meet death itself… 

the original Coliseum

Such a small part remains, yet it’s still so easy to feel the excitement as you walk the tunnel passage leading to the battle grounds. Even the bravest warriors must have paused for a second, hearing the crowd’s roars louder and louder. 

Once you are up the steps and you look ahead, you get an instant “slap” back into present day times. Welcome to downtown Plovdiv, the shopping district! 

There are still quite a few places I didn’t manage to cover in this visit but I’ll definitely be coming back here! 

There are cats EVERYWHERE! Adding a little extra to the Roman vibe ❤️
