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 πŸ™‚ !

I’m always telling that I can live just about anywhere, but not without the sea view πŸ™‚

Today’s post is an homage to wonderful Mediterranean ladies and fashion, hope you’ll enjoy it πŸ™‚ !

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.

  1. Loving the styling …from us gals at Mimi’s loft .
    Love that era of elegance and classic femininity.
    Miss Dee, you are so blessed to live beside the Mediterranean and have that lifestyle.

    The Uk can be beautiful when the sun shines as it has done this summer but we fly to the Med every chance we get!


    • Thank you so much girls πŸ™‚ ! It really is easy to forget to me and my friends how lucky we are to be born in this wonderful Mediterranean country – this summer the weather is crazy and is constantly raining so maybe I should pay a visit to UK to find some sunshine πŸ™‚ ! Kisses from Dalmatia!

  2. I love Gina L. and Sofia Loren. My mother use to talk about them and other actress and fashion icons of this time a lot to me.I have been in love in 50’s and 60’s fashion style since I was little girl. I am Bulgarian and the Mediterranean Fashion shaped my personal style. Unfortunately it is very hard to keep it up that style here in U.S.
