Made in Croatia

Today’s post will be a rather patriotic one….no, don’t worry, I won’t sing our national anthem or something like that πŸ™‚ ! ThisΒ  photo shoot was taken on a beautiful sunny day in my hometown Split. Me and my friend Stela who took pictures (with my low quality camera, because my husband took the better camera for his backpacking trip, grrrr) were over the top that day. Gorgeous weather, sunshine, sea, amazing views….they just made us think how lucky we are to live in such a beautiful town and such a beautiful country.

Most of my outfit which I wore that day was made in Croatia, so today I will present you some of my favorite Croatian brands and designers. There are so many great designers here, some better known and some lesser known, but all amazingly talented, so you can expect them more in some of my future posts, but these ones would be my Top 5 !

If you have any of your own suggestions be sure to write them in the comments!

Enjoy πŸ™‚ !

Pop Art stole my heart

Today is a rather special day! Besides the fact that today is the first day of Spring, there is one other small fact –Β  this is my 30th post, hooray πŸ™‚ ! One of the main goals when I started to do this blog (besides showing you my obsession with Desigual πŸ˜‰ ), was to show some of the amazing Croatian designers. Croatia is a a rather small country, but artistic talent here is huge, in my humble opinion πŸ™‚ !

I love this skirt by very talented Croatian designer Zoran Aragovic from Bite My Style fashion design, and she inspired me for today’s topic – Pop Art, and it’s neverending influence in fashion and design. I love my clothes to be colorful and bold, and this outfit doesn’t fail me in that department – hope you’ll enjoy it!

Are you ready, Freddie?

I love Freddie Mercury and Queen. No…I ADORE Freddie Mercury and Queen. I love so many bands and so many performers, but for me Freddie and Queen always were and always will be my number one. Love them or hate them, you cannot ignore pure talent and charisma from all of the band members. And what about Freddie? An epitome of rock star and true band front man. The Voice. Songwriting skills. Drama and flamboyance. The mustache πŸ™‚ . He had it all. I would give my right arm in a blink of an eye for the opportunity, an honor to see them live…but without Freddie..I don’t see the point.

For this year carnival in my home town Split I decided to go as…well, you can guess…one and only, Freddie Mercury, darlings. I choose one specific outfit of Freddie which I particularly like – yellow jacket and white pants which he wore on his very last tour with Queen in 1986. Queen were on the verge of break up, but their unforgettable performance on Live Aid gave them new love for Queen and each other. Soon after, they recorded the new album, went on their biggest tour ever…and Freddie managed to make an opera album – all in two years span!

My friend Stela joined me as Freddie’s dear friend, Spanish opera singer Montserrat Caballe, and with my sister I tried to re-enact the famous picture of Freddie sitting on the back of no other than Darth Vader πŸ™‚ .

We had so much fun, hope you’ll enjoy!

Times are hard for dreamers, Amelie

I think everyone of us has a film to which we often return. I watched film β€žAmelieβ€œ so many times, but it never fails to cheer me up. Busy and colorful streets of Paris, eccentric characters, vibrant colors and fashion are a recipe for the perfect movie night. The movie soundtrack is one of my favorites, and by listening to it I feel immersed in the wonderful world of adventure, traveling and love.

And what is life without colors, imagination and eccentricity?

Definitely not the life I would like to live!
