We continue the series of pictures in the wonderful dresses from Ever-pretty, and what a fabulous place for a photo shoot than the Romanian Athenaeum. Located on Calea Victoriei, in George Enescu Square, the building is a concert hall built between 1886 and 1888, harmoniously intertwining the neoclassical style with the eclectic style. The concert hall of the Romanian Athenaeum hosts the most important cultural events in Bucharest. The Romanian Athenaeum is a symbol for the national culture of Romania, becoming one of the most important tourist attractions in Bucharest.

The comic slogan: “Give a leu for the Athenaeum!” is known to everyone. The palace of the Romanian Athenaeum was built with the money from a public subscription, following the organization of a national lottery (500,000 tickets worth one leu). The idea of the appeal surprisingly turned into a lesson of unity, of awakening the national consciousness.

The athenaeum is one of my favorite places to pose. The main neoclassical façade, with six front and two side columns, gives the Athenaeum the appearance of an Ionic temple. The building was built according to the plans of the French architect Albert Galleron according to the scientific research and the indications of Alexandru Odobescu. The athenaeum is inspired by ancient Greek temples and the building surprises at first sight with a historic colonnade that supports a triangular pediment. Impressive is the fact that the eight ionic columns at the main entrance have similar proportions to the columns of the ancient temple Erechteion on the Acropolis. The Romanian Athenaeum is a real architectural gem in the middle of Bucharest.

Even the surroundings of the Athenaeum are notable, you will find buildings full of history, on the walls of which are built stories drowned in the mists of time, such as the National Art Museum of Romania, the Central University Library Carol I, Kretzulescu Church and the Ministry of Internal Affairs.

Going back to the Ever-Pretty dresses, I want to tell you that I’m extremely excited about them.

Elegant Double V Neck fishtail long tulle evening dress with sequin, is suitable for formal events, evening parties, cocktails, proms, reunions or graduations. The V-neckline lengthens the neck, giving grace and femininity.

The absence of light, in black, is the creative factor of the mystery. Black is used to highlight luxury, prestige and power. You will always look flawless wearing black clothes. The color black creates intense contrasts when used with silver, triggering a strong visual impact. The shiny sleeveless dress has a classic, round neckline, dressed in rhinestones, which gives the dress enough shine, while the design of the belt helps to define the waist. The skirt in line A is suitable for any figure.


Burgundy is the color of bold women, often making waves among Hollywood stars. The color burgundy took its name from Burgundy wine (from the region of the same name in eastern France). Burgundy is the color of the noble epoch wine – intense red ruby. Just like an old wine, drunk from the first mouth, it will be your appearance at any event where you will wear the dress with short sleeves with ruffles. Burgundy is a symbolic color, identified by prosperity, generosity, beauty, youth and wisdom at the same time. This color represents an allegory related to the mysteries of the Cosmos, to the fascination for the unknown, which will deepen the mystery around you and the desire to be discovered. Dare to win hearts and go beyond the last frontier.
