Gladiator Khaleesi

Idea for today’s post started with one of my favorite pair of shoes – black leather gladiator sandals. I bought them five years ago on a big sale. I remember watching them for weeks and saving up my money to buy them. They truly are powerful fashion statement. I don’t feel the need to wear anything colorful or extravagant when I have them on my feet – simple black dress is my favorite choice.

I am a big fan of books “Song of Ice and Fire” and series filmed by them –Β  “The Game of Thrones”. My favorite character is by far Daenerys Targaryen, also known as Khaleesi or Mother of Dragons. I’m very proud that big part of the scenes for the last couple of seasons of this TV series is filmed in Croatia and in my hometown Split. With my friend and photographer Stela I came up with the idea of this post being a tribute to the wonderful George R.R. Martin books, Roman heritage of our hometown and a fashion trend that cannot go unnoticed.

All the pictures were taken in amphitheater of the ancient city Salona, 5 km from Split – this is a beautiful place with huge history…I felt humbled knowing that 2000 years ago gladiators were fighting for their lives at this very place!

Dolce Vita – Vintage Festival 2014.

Two weeks ago me and my friend and photographer Stela have decided to pack our vintage dresses and visit one of the most beautiful little towns in Croatia – Rovinj. Rovinj is located on the western coast of Istria peninsula, which is the biggest Croatian peninsula. Rovinj is beautiful, but we needed a bigger motive for a 10 hour drive from our hometown Split then just usual sightseeing – and boy did we find it πŸ™‚ !

Rovinj was a host of fantastic Dolce Vita Vintage Festival. In their own words : “Dolce Vita is a heritage festival celebrating vintage culture in all of its forms: music, film, design, fashion, dance, food…. Dolce Vita celebrates Mediterranean culture and all the best from the mid-20th century. A true festival experience for all senses!”

For us it really was an unforgettable weekend. Amazing concerts, great food, beautiful town…and the feeling that we entered into the time machine and returned to that beautiful era of dapper suits, gorgeous womanly dresses, wild dances and quality music….I think Fellini would be proud πŸ™‚ !

Sailor Girl !

Sorry for a little bit belated post but I’m having love and hate relationship with my laptop these days! The temperature is dangerously rising in Croatia, and for a very short period of time I managed to wear my, how I like to call it : “OMG, where I parked my yacht ?!” look πŸ™‚

I love the pure simplicity of this look – with only three colors : white, red and navy blue, you can make numerous combinations of navy looks. These looks automatically give you a feeling of summer, nostalgia and old school elegance.

Enjoy!

“Let Them Eat Fruit !” – first handbag and jewelry collection by Miss Dee :)

Ten months ago (Is it really just ten months?!), I finally decided to pursue one of my dreams – learn how to sew. Sewing class was my first encounter with the sewing machine, that strange and unusual object which makes wonders πŸ™‚ !

Studying medicine consumed so much of my time and energy, but the wish to actually made something for myself in terms of clothing and accessories, and to learn this wonderful new craft was so strong.

This blog was a fantastic adventure for this six months and one of the ways in which I decided to express all the colors and patterns trapped inside my wardrobe and inside my imagination.

I wanna say “Thank you!” to my all my beautiful friends and family who supported me – especially to my husband dearest πŸ™‚ !

All the pictures were taken at my parents’ weekend house in village Ogorje, 40 km from Split – they were wonderful hosts for me and my beautiful friend and photographer Miss Stela.

So, that’s enough for the introduction πŸ™‚ , I’m proud to show you my first handbag and jewelry collection for the summer, inspired by the fruit, summer and love…
