It is very easy in our hectic life today to forget small things, things that actually count. Couple of weeks ago I was sitting at a local beach bar in my hometown Split. It was one of those perfect summer days..couple of good friends, coffee, wonderful sea view… At that moment I realized how happy I am to be born in this wonderful Mediterranean country. There is something special in Mediterranean culture and way of living – easy going atmosphere, beautiful sunny days…wild temperaments, fantastic food…I wouldn’t trade it for nothing!
I love to travel and discover new places, but I have spacial attraction for the places near the sea, which explains my love for Lisbon and Barcelona 🙂 !
I’m always telling that I can live just about anywhere, but not without the sea view 🙂
Today’s post is an homage to wonderful Mediterranean ladies and fashion, hope you’ll enjoy it 🙂 !
I always had tendency for some geometry in my wardrobe. In today’s fashion, thanks to different kinds of materials, clothing, shoes and jewelry can come to life in all forms and shapes.
One particular trend I like is use of straps in everyday fashion. Different use of straps in our wardrobe can give us feminine, but also very futuristic, even bondage vibe. They are usually used to accentuate the parts of our body that we wanna show off – used smartly, of course!
That effect is best shown in today’s classic, bandage dress by Herve Leger who used straps to the maximum.
From early childhood I had fascination with glass, especially colored one. I used to take empty bottles, break them, and then tried to glue them in different forms, much to my mother’s despair 🙂 . I loved different colors and shapes of glass, and in our local church I adored to look at the stained glass windows, especially during the morning mass when the rays of sun would shine through them – those moments were like heaven for my eyes. During my first visit to Barcelona I had stained glass overload – beautiful colorful glass mosaics were everywhere, especially in works of Antoni Gaudi. Since then I blame Gaudi 🙂 for my love and obsession with everything colorful, naturalistic and eccentric – beautiful necklace featured in today’s post represents all of that !
