Retro Caffe

One of my favorite places in Split is definitely Retro Caffe, located just below university campus. For a long time we had a plan to do photo shoot there, and we finally managed to do it a couple of weeks ago.

If you are a lover of retro culture, 50s and 60s, or at least drinking your coffee surrounded by amazing colorful environment, this is your place to be.  Because of work and family schedule I don’t visit it as much as I would like to, but every time I do it really puts a smile on my face, just the fact there is this small, positive place in my hometown.

All the vibrant colors, amazing pictures and wallpapers, unique new and vintage furniture…you really don’t know where to look at first!

We really enjoyed taking these pictures, but if you can visit it for yourself, you won’t regret it 🙂

Kisses,

Dina & Stela

Mother’s Day

My little girl will be two years old in a couple of months. I heard all sort of stories about parenting and motherhood…but not in my wildest dreams could I imagine how my life will be turned upside down.

How you can actually live and function without sleep. How you can worry and obsess about so many little trivial things considering her well being, and completely forget about everything else.

How you can love your husband even more.

And how I often feel that I am the one who is learning, and she is the one who teaches me…all those little life lessons and joys I forgot along the way…

As probably so many mothers, although I spend my every free second with her, we don’t have so many photographs in which we are both together…my dear photographer Stela took these pictures, coincidentally, on Mother’s day…

I choose some of them to share with you guys…

Love you my precious “Little Fire”…

DEE-constructed

I was always such a fashion fanatic, but after I started to learn the craft of sewing I realized just how hard is to make a wearable piece of clothing. Since then I have much more appreciation for “behind the scenes” work which takes in designing and making our everyday outfits.

Designing is a 3D art, and you have to be careful how will your design look from different corners. Technology today allows designers to make gravity defying clothes, with new material and sewing machines coming along every day.

I adore Dior haute couture constructed gowns from the 40s and futuristic fashion of the 60s, where construction became an important element of design.

Hope you’ll enjoy some of my favorites, along with new pics taken by Miss Stela 🙂 !

Split Falling

My maternity leave is still on, but there’s no need to worry, there are many new blog post ideas in this crazy head of mine 🙂 ! Until then, enjoy this new excellent blog post by Miss Stela and Miss Ivna 🙂 !

Kissess, Dina aka Miss Dee!

Well, fall is most certantly here. Yet, one of the most enchanting parts of early fall, at least here on the Mediterranean, is the fact that the sea is still hot enough to go swimming. Tell us, what could be better than having coffee in the city center and then enjoying an outing to the beach?

You have to dresses in style, and nothing is better suited for these “last days of the summer wine” as a breezy, simple white lace dress! Let’s take a look at what Ivna wore and how!

“I am Catwoman. Hear me roar.”

The night crept over the Gotham City calmly like a silken scarf. From the distance, rhythmical clacking of the city subway echoes, blended between the sounds of police sirens, chaos of the traffic jams and barks of strayed dogs. Fumes of the factories, the smog, the waste and the thick led sky. This, is my city; this is my jungle. For all of you who might not know, the name is Selina… Selina Kyle. Who am I actually? Perhaps you caught a glimpse of me in your wildest fantasies… and your most hidden fears. Because this is my jungle. And in that jungle, I am the meanest cat of them all. I am – the Catwoman; hear me roar!
