Summer months are just perfect for the one trend which cannot go unnoticed – jungle print. I haven’t worn Desigual for a while 😉 , so it’s time to return to my favorite fashion brand!
I found this beautiful dress at E-bay couple of years ago, again second hand, and it was of course, love at first sight. She just screams summer, jungle and wilderness.
For blog posts I first decide on outfit, and after it, with my biggest helper, photographer Stela, I decide on location.
We wanted to do the jungle themed post, but we couldn’t afford trip to Amazonian rain forest 🙂 , so we hope that this jungle voyage with a little bit of help of Photoshop will do the trick 🙂 !

Sheena, Queen of the jungle : 50s TV series and comic book
Sheena was the first female comic book character. She first appeared in comic books in 1937, one year before Wonderwoman. In the fifties she inspired TV series with the same name, and some time later she inpired one of the all time punk classics – “Sheena is a punk rocker” by Ramones.
She was known as the beauty of the jungle, fierce, protective of animals and wildlife and great warrior, unbeatable in hand-to-hand combat – I believe even Tarzan couldn’t stand a chance against this fierce lady!
