Fashion. Art. Medicine. Dee.

Today’s blog post represents the very core of this entire blog: my love for Art and Croatian design combined with my other great love and job – Medicine. I already wrote about one of my favorite Croatian fashion brands, “Herman Design” inย  “Made in Croatia” blog post. I’m honored to be a proud owner of one of their printed leather handbags.

On my model I wantedย  to combine my profession ( I am a doctor), love for unique handbags, and the motive of Hygieia from the Gustav Klimt’s sadly destroyed “Medicine” painting. Klimt is my favorite painter next to Salvador Dali, Vincent van Gogh and Frida Kahlo.

Hygieia was the daughter of the god of medicine, Asclepius. She was the goddess/personification of health, cleanliness and sanitation.

If you ever visit Split I recommend you to check out the wonderful “Gallery of Fine Arts”, where these pictures were taken.

Spring Bomb

Finally, a new blog post! After two weeks without my faithful laptop we are reunited and ready for some new fashion adventures ๐Ÿ™‚ !

Inspiration for today’s post is a fashion item which is quite popular last couple of Spring/Summer seasons – the bomber jacket. Bomber jacket is a perfect item for the days between sudden Spring colds and Summer heats. Designers recognized her potential and shops like Zara, H&M and Asos are full of bomber jackets in all possible prints.

Last month, while in Barcelona, in Desigual outlet store I purchased my new prized possession, beautiful embroidered bomber jacket which I can combine with just about anything.

Enjoy!

Pretty Pleat

I still have a slight case of Barcelona blues :), but the last couple of days my hometown Split was finally in it’s sunshine mood. It is the perfect time for my collection of pleated skirts to see the light of the day. I have them in five different colors (white, yellow, green, black and turqoise), all bought on E-bay for 10 dollars each. They are perfect for spring/summer transition and can be paired with just about anything. I wear them with T-shirts, tank tops, jackets, sneakers or sandals. If you want some instant feminine touch, but also to feel modern and comfortable pleat is the perfect choice!

Viva Barcelona! – part two

I have to say, as expected, I returned home to my every day obligations and the feel of nostalgia kicked in! I already miss you Barcelona….

But in the words of the one and only Freddie Mercury:

“…Barcelona – It was the first time that we met!

Barcelona – How can I forget?

The moment that you stepped into the room you took my breath away!

And if God is willing we will meet again someday…

Friends until the end…”
