Shooting à la Olsen sisters with A!UREA outfits!

Today we decided to talk about another one of our favorite styling collaborations! This time, the project involves one of our favorite fashionistas, Lumi Balaban, owner of Read My Mind blog who had a brilliant idea for a shooting inspired by the bohemian über chic style of the Olsen sister!



In the following pictures you will come across two beautiful blond girls wearing black and white outfits with interesting colorful twists! The first set of pictures depicts the elegant side of the Olsen sisters: clean cut jackets, pleated skirts and long fishnet dresses. Lumi is wearing the vintage black pleated skirt and the white and pure jacket while her friend shines like a true star in a long black fishnet dress. Both outfits are accessorized with opulent vintage accessories and black clutches.



The second set of pictures shows a rather playful and innocent Olsen look: the girls are happily wearing their ballerina tutus with tight tops and chunky pearl necklaces. We couldn’t take our eyes of this set and mainly Lumi’s massage t-shirt: “You look better on Facebook!”




For which of these look would you go for?  Whatever your choice Atelier A!UREA will provide you with the most original and chic look! Don’t forget to check our official Facebook page for more a!urea vintage items: 

Lots of thanks to the beautiful team:

Vintage, jazz and loads of fun! Atelier A!UREA and Cuantune

Today we’re excited to introduce to you a team of inspiring people with whom we had the pleasure to collaborate more than once. They go by the name of Cuantune, and they have been singing together since the spring of 2010.  We saw them in concerts in the old city center almost every month of the year, and we’re constantly falling in love with their jazzy, funk, soul and bits of hip hop vibes. Thus, when they contacted us looking for a chic elegant classy dress that Elizabeth would wear in their forthcoming video, Tonight, we instantly said yes and set out to find the perfect dress! After trying different outfits we agreed that the 80’s Sweet Tinsel dress with an over sized bow would be the best choice! You can see Elizabeth shining while wearing this vintage evening gown in the following clip, and we are pleased to inform you that the dress is still available at the boutique!

Pleased with our surreal outfits and colorful accessories the collaboration went on and we were invited to join the making of their next video, for the song called Addiction! This time, the setting was more relaxed, depicting Elizabeth while walking the streets of the old city center, or the entire band singing on the roof tops next to the violet skies! At the beginning of the clip, Mario is rapping on the first floor of the Gabroveni 24 interior garden.

For this video we chose three playful outfits: first the 50’s inspired black dress with lace and tinsel details to which we added the extravagant floral brooch, next the aubergine tulip shaped dress worn with a massive two colored leather necklace and a touch of tiny gold brooches while the last dress, showed a more delicate and joyful attitude worn with the organic black earrings in the interior garden of Lipscani’s Tea Store next to our boutique! From these colored outfits only the Black Organic earrings are still available at the boutique, and they can be all yours for just 54 RON!

We invite you to forget all your worries and tune in with these magnificent jazzy songs and enjoy what’e left of this cozy afternoon!

Happy Three A!UREA-styled friends!

Today’s post is all about another amazing project we embarked upon last year.  Dragos Manea, one of our favorite photographers invited us to join him in a collaboration with “United Colors” a beauty salon in the heart of Bucharest. Hairstylists there were putting together a personal collection of hairstyles and haircuts and were planning to make them public through an eye-catching sensational shooting!

Obviously our part of the project consisted in finding three outfits that would fit the predominantly futuristic looks of the girls from the “United Colors” hairstyle collection.  Luckily our a!uristic wardrobe was prepared with an interesting mix of vintage and new, colorful and daring making the shooting a total success!
The Pink’n’Sweet outfit is by far our favorite! We love the rainbow tutu the bold fishnet top that go hand in hand with the multicolored hairdo and the genuine smile of the model!

Another look took a more elegant side thanks to our Alice in Wonderland dress, vintage white belt  and the classy black velvet gloves sweetened by the pinkish tiny brooches at their ends!



The last look, took a more Asian vibe due to the energetic young model and we couldn’t think of anything that would suit her best than the shinny alien vest with delicate touched of tourcoise!


More colored and futuristic outfits await you at the boutique every day! Do stop by!
You can still buy the Vintage White Belt  for just 46 RON on our facebook page.

Atelier A!UREA at the “Celebrating Life” Gala

A few months ago, we received an invitation to attend “Ce se intampla Doctore”’s upcomming event: the celebration of their seven years of working at the famous transmedia project, running under the same name, offering their audience more than just a glossy magazine.


The magazine’s main focus is to provide a genuine reply to their audience’s main problems, they address to all layers of readers, and they put great interest in issues of utmost importance. Their events soon came to be attended by all sorts of people who work or study in the domains of beauty and health.


At the “Celebrating Gala” we were introduced to some of the greatest figures in beauty and health, people who excel in their work fields and to whom we should all be thankful!


Our fancy boutique was represented at the gala by Cristina Ivan, owner of Atelier A!UREA, who wore a monochrome outfit of black skirt and white shirt, all seasoned with delicate embroideries and black lace, and accessorized with a almost masculine black hat.


Come and take a look at the wonderful outfits and don’t forget to “tune in” on our Facebook page for more a!uristic outfits, waiting for you to try them on and wear them at the next gala in town!
