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 🙂 !

True Mediterranean – pine trees, sea view, sunshine, and coffee with friends – what more can a person ask?
True Mediterranean divas – Italian actresses Gina Lollobrigida and Sophia Loren.
These two actresses were among the first ones who brought a dash of Mediterranean passion and beauty to the Hollywood machinery, never loosing the sense of their background.
Beautiful ladies from various 50s fashion magazines
I love the accidental similarity of these two pictures, left one from the Anabella fashion magazine from 1954., and the right one from the recent fashion photoshoot
