Instant Chic

Three weeks ago one of my favorite Croatian designers, Robert Sever, launched a small capsule collection of clothing and accessories named “Instant Chic”. This beautiful and affordable collection was made in collaboration with main Croatian fashion internet page –  FASHION.HR, and sold in BIPA stores.

I couldn’t wait for the collection to come to the stores, and when it did it was everything I could hope for – trendy, chic, unique and elegant. My absolute favorites are beautiful printed belt and matching purse with tassel detail, trendy fringe belt and this simple but oh so perfect black and grey dress – perfect for the day at the job, but also for the evening outing!

Besides my take on this beautiful collection you can also check out some pictures and advices for the one trend that just keeps on going this season – use of fringe and tassels in our everyday clothing items. In the beginning I wasn’t the biggest fan of this trend, but later I started to love it – only if used with measure of course 😉 !

Hope you’ll like it!

Gladiator Khaleesi

Idea for today’s post started with one of my favorite pair of shoes – black leather gladiator sandals. I bought them five years ago on a big sale. I remember watching them for weeks and saving up my money to buy them. They truly are powerful fashion statement. I don’t feel the need to wear anything colorful or extravagant when I have them on my feet – simple black dress is my favorite choice.

I am a big fan of books “Song of Ice and Fire” and series filmed by them –  “The Game of Thrones”. My favorite character is by far Daenerys Targaryen, also known as Khaleesi or Mother of Dragons. I’m very proud that big part of the scenes for the last couple of seasons of this TV series is filmed in Croatia and in my hometown Split. With my friend and photographer Stela I came up with the idea of this post being a tribute to the wonderful George R.R. Martin books, Roman heritage of our hometown and a fashion trend that cannot go unnoticed.

All the pictures were taken in amphitheater of the ancient city Salona, 5 km from Split – this is a beautiful place with huge history…I felt humbled knowing that 2000 years ago gladiators were fighting for their lives at this very place!
