I was not sure if I would manage to write another post today about "La Blouse Roumaine"...
I must admit that today is the Romanian Blouse (Ie) day and I am proudly wearing one :) I may even post pictures of it later on ;p but until then, I will show you some old pictures of me wearing a THE blouse :) I must admit I wore Romanian Blouses in Greece most of the time as they were so fitting and they do have a similar type of blouse, though not as soft and silky as we do it, and not that ornate either ;)
So enjoy the pictures below :)
This picture was taken during one of my first trips in Greece (November 2008) - The "ie" in the picture is made by my grandmother and it has no embroidery but it is 100% cotton and it is so smooth you can barely feel it :) Here I stand on the Athens ruins...
These 2 pictures are from September 2009 and the "ie" is a very old one :) It was my grandmothers and my mum also wore it :) Again the pictures are taken in lovely fair-weathered Greece - near Katerini
Party Around The World In One Night :) I could not find (unfortunately) a skirt to make the full costume but I wore here the "ie" from my granny :) This was May 2010 ;)
And here I am in July 2012 with a dear friend of mine at Tuffli - the best sweets shop in Iasi ;)
The idea came also from Matisse... La Blouse Roumaine is an oil-on-canvas painting by Henri Matisse from 1940. It measures 92 × 73 cm and is held at the Musée National d'Art Moderne in Paris.
The below extract is from the Facebook main page for this event ;)

Latest update - this is a picture taken moments ago ;)
Proof that also today I wore a traditional Romanian blouse ;)
