Back in Yellow !

Finally, after a long break, arrives my first post pregnancy post ๐Ÿ™‚ ! First of all, I have to thank my friends Stela and Ivna for keeping this little blog alive with their amazing posts while I was trying to figure out my new mommy role.

My little baby girl Ena is now three and a half months old, and she has become our new partner whenever Stela and I manage some time to do photo shoots.

I thought it is appropriate to start this new fashion blogger / Ena’s mommy adventure in my colorful style – and which color is the best one two announce new life, new energy, new start? Of course, it’s splash of yellow!

Yellow is the color that captures our attention more than any other color. In almost every culture yellow represents sunshine, happiness, and warmth. It is the most visible color of the spectrum and the human eye processes yellow first. This explains why it is used for cautionary signs and emergency rescue vehicles.

It’s a primary color and so it’s the base of endless shades of colors. Yellow remains full, pure, and immune to all chromatic contamination.

It’s not an easy color to wear, and it looks better in contrast with black – add just a little bit of yellow to your everyday outfit, and trust me, you WILL be noticed ๐Ÿ™‚

Enough with the small talk, let’s show you some pictures!

Everyone I meet, even random people on the street ask me about Ena’s pushchair. It’s by the fantastic British brand Cosatto, and it was love at first sight!

What about that Bag ?

I usually do my photo shoots during the weekend – that is the only time of the week when my dear photographer Stela and I have enough time to meet up and take the pictures. Of course, nice weather is always a plus in our blogger escapades! This weekend I got sick with a stomach flu and all our plans had to be postponed. Because of that I decided to realize an idea I had for a while – make a collage of all of my handbags, shoes and jewelry that I wore in former blog posts – today I started with my favorites – the bags ๐Ÿ™‚ !

I’m really happy that among my handbag collection is a large number of handmade products and that some of them have found their new owners. But one thing is for sure – you won’t find one quite “normal” model among this collection!

How many bags do you have, and what are your favorites in my collection?

Kisses from sickly Miss Dee :* !

Splendor in the grass

Every year during the Spring/Summer season we have one recurring fashion trend – flower prints. And boy, do I love that trend! Every year has some trend variations – one season there are tribal prints, other vintage feel of the 50s. It is easy to go overboard, so don’t use different flower fabrics in the same outfit. I will occasionally wear flower prints during the winter, probably on some jumpers or coats, just to cheer things up, but the Spring season is perfect one to empty out all of the flowers from your wardrobe and say hello to warm, sunny days ๐Ÿ™‚ !

Being Edward Scissorhands

I believe there is always a time in life for any of us when we feel alone, misunderstood, and isolated. When you are growing up as one of the geeky, not-so-popular kids (I often felt that way), you tend to find your comfort in music and movies. I first discovered one of my favourite directors, Tim Burton, while watching his amazing take on the Batman franchize โ€“ Batman, and Batman Returns. But there is something rather special in his movie Edward Scissorhands. On a first hand such a bizarre story โ€“ a man with scissors instead of hist fingers, who tries to live a normal everyday life and ends up rejected. I watched this movie many times, and I always discover something new about it…Amazing music by Danny Elfman…beautiful and sometimes even naive story of love and friendship…and of course, great gothic and horror movies inspired fashion.

At the end, most of all, it is a a story of outcasts, rebells who often don’t fit in…but without them this world would be awfully boring and a uniformed place.

She’s a Lady

โ€œBeing female is a matter of birth, being a woman is a matter of age, but being a lady is a matter of choice.โ€ย ย 

I often have conversations with some of my friends about the meaning of a true lady and a true gentleman. Is that just something archaic that belongs to the past, or is it possible to maintain ladylike qualities in the modern times?

Times change, and people change, and these are surely not innocent times. But I can’t help myself and think how today we feel strange when someone around us is not vulgar, when he or she is polite and well-mannered.

Are ladies and gentlemen an extinct species? I truly hope they are not โ€“ it would be a sad world to live in!

Frida Forever

Frida Kahlo, the famous Mexican painter, was truly a definition of an empovered, beautiful, and a unique woman. She lived a life which consisted of many ups and downs, life of constant pain, enormous talent, and a will to live to the fullest. In her paintings she prefered a lot of patterns and colors, and her own personal style reflected that. Flowers in her hair, big golden earrings and necklaces, long ruffled skirts and her trademark unibrow made her a person to remember and admire. Today her self-portraits and paintings are widely recognised, and she is a constant inspiration to fashion designers.

I deeply admire her, and I love her work, her strength, and her fantastic fashion sense. I possess a lot of jewelry, but I often end up with one of my favourite pairs of earrings โ€“ a picture of Frida’s self-portrait with a thorn necklace and a hummingbird. When I put them on, I feel womanly, strong, and proud at the same time.

The Gloved One

Honore de Balzac once said: โ€žWoman is the most charming creature, who changes her heart as easily as she does her gloves.”

There is something rather special in gloves. We often carry handbags, and wear shoes, belts and even hats, but gloves…not so much. Gloves had a huge role in fashion and in development of man kind, but they have always been a bit special. Firstly worn for protection in cold winter days, later they developed into a status symbol. I would give anything to live in the days when it was perfectly normal to wear gloves to the theatre, parties, dinners…even just walking around town. So these days cold weather is the perfect excuse to let my glove collection do all the talking! These black and red leather gloves are the first pair of gloves I have ever bought…they protect my hands of course, but with them I feel elegant, special and a bit devilish all at the same time :).
