She gives me needles and pins…

My personal style often balances on the edge of being over-accessorized. I love scarves, watches, handbags, and jewelry in general โ€“ and I’m not afraid to use it ๐Ÿ™‚ ! I started to wear earrings when I cut off my hair ten years ago, and I occasionally wear necklaces, bracelets and rings, but brooches are my biggest love. During the winter I pin them on my coats and jackets, and during the summer they end up everywhere โ€“ on my T-shirts, dresses and bags โ€“ even shoes if it’s possible!

Every brooch I own has its own story โ€“ I don’t buy them because they are trendy. They have to inspire me, and add that extra touch of my own interests and style to the whole outfit I’m wearing.

My profession doesn’t allow me too much color or personal style during the working hours, but a nice little brooch can make a lot of difference on my plain white uniform.

Flapper Girl

In the last couple of months I have revived my love for one specific movie genre โ€“ musicals. The last one I watched has been โ€žCabaretโ€œ, starring Liza Minnelli, who won an Oscar for best actress for her performance in 1972.

I’m so amazed by her movie styling โ€“ short bob haircut, huge eyelashes and intensive make-up with some amazing outfits. I especially love her โ€žflapper 20sโ€œ styling in โ€žMoneyโ€œ musical number.

“Wuthering Heights” on my mind

Approaching Valentine’s Day, this horrible, stormy and grey weather in my hometown inspired me for today’s blog post.

There are so many wonderful love stories in history of the world, but I doubt there is one so fatalistic, wild, and eventually unhappy as the love story between Catherine and Heathcliff, main characters of Emily Bronte’s masterpiece, and her only work, โ€žWuthering Heightsโ€œ. I was very young when I first read this book and I found it way too intense and hard to read, but several years and more love experiences later ๐Ÿ™‚ I learned to love it.

The whole book is situated in rather depressing and wild English moors โ€“ they are actually the thing Emily Bronte knew the best because she grew up in a similar surrounding. It is fascinating how much passion she put into her book and in her characters – especially for a person who rarely left her home and never had any known relationships. One can only wonder how deep and intriguing her imagination and her own inner world were.

She left this world way too early, but she lives through her passionate heroes and new generations of loyal fans and admirers.

I caught an influenca after shooting this set of photographs โ€“ suffering for the art indeed ๐Ÿ™‚ !

Stop bugging me Beetlejuice!

At the beginning of today’s post I have to say โ€“ I have never had so much fun being photographed like for this photo shoot. There are a lot of goth-inspired clothing items in my wardrobe and I really wanted to use them โ€“ story about Beetlejuice and Lydia was perfect for that. It was interesting to portray two complete opposites โ€“ quiet, eternally depressed Lydia, and slightly crazy and always scheming Beetlejuice โ€“ Dr. Jekyll and Mr Hyde indeed. After the shoot I stayed in a little bit crazy over-the-top Beetlejuice mood. I cannot even imagine how hard it is for actors who portray these kind of characters to return to normal, everyday lives โ€“ they really possess you! They can be really fun to play, because every one of us wants to escape reality sometimes and outleash our inner emotions. But also, after a while they can be quite dangerous, so it’s better to use them in small dosages ๐Ÿ™‚ !

Enjoy!

Step aside, Wonder Woman is here!

Today a post with a little bit of info on one fascinating imaginary woman โ€“ Wonder Woman. For some time now I have owned a Wonder Woman themed handbag by Italian brand Redwall. It was love at first sight โ€“ great Italian design with cool print of a remarkable icon. Lately I realised that I’m carrying this bag without really knowing anything about the woman whose gorgeous printed face is smilling to the world around me. I always looked at her as a fabulous woman in sexy outfits who is kicking some ass out of the bad guys. I did a little research and you can trust me โ€“ she is way more than that…
