When you’re taking pictures with a girl who has called her business “ in the dim light” you have to assume that she will always be chasing the light. And as i’ve always loved the fashion drama, i’m very happy to pose in the most dramatic rays of light for Iuliana.  Sometimes i  have to show you my dark side, so i pose in the shadows. Otherwise, i wouldn’t have the opportunity to be called Sweet Paprika.

I’m not a smoker.” It was only for the picture.” Everybody lies. The truth is i have never considered myself a smoker. I just feel fancy doing it sometimes.  As long as i am not waking up with the need of a cigarette and a cup of coffee, i am not a smoker. Or at least, that is my theory.

We’ve arrived in Milan one day before the fashion week. So we had the opportunity to feel the silence before the storm. We’ve activated our tourist mode and luckily we have both enjoyed wandering on the streets of Milan without a certain purpose. Getting lost while enjoying the city vibes, is the perfect way of traveling for me.

I knew it would be impossible to have my tourist mode activated while wandering on the streets of Milan in high-heels, from one show to another. So, i enjoyed my one day-off, in those patent black leather boots. Needless to say, they were extremely comfortable.

We have come to fashion week only for two days, as we had a lot of things to do in Bucharest. But it was worth it, and both me and Iuliana needed to be there to get the pulse of the next season, in terms of fashion, street style and trends.  When you’re in this business you have to stay tuned to all the news. Just like Iris Apfel said: “You have to be interested in order to be interesting.”

Just a note before i go: If you’re visiting DUOMO, write “Humana vintage clothes” on your google maps. They have a store very close to Duomo, frankly you can see more amazing outfits there, than you will see in some shows on the runway. Moreover, you can afford them, even if it is not a cheap vintage store…you can get Epic looks there.

Also i’ve heard that RED is the colour of the season, or at least it is the colour i’ve spotted the most in the shows and on the streets. Well, luckily i’ve always loved to be the red dot on the blackboard.

Needless to say i, i’ve started my look from my new GAVROCHE hat. Actually you will be able to buy it in the new Season. Sweet Paprika is coming up with new goodies!
