No, it’s not Miss Dee, but rather her loyal photographer/friend Stela. I’ll start the post of a happy note and say that Miss Dee and her hubby became proud parents of a gorgeous baby girl on August 18th, 2015! Congratulations Miss Dee!
One of the main lady trends in the last couple of seasons is a true 50s classic – A line skirt. Usually reserved for those who love rockabilly subculture, A – line once again conquered fashion runways, and after that the streets.
A – line skirts are very feminine clothing item but I was a bit skeptical about wearing them – I have classical pear body shape and I didn’t want to draw to much of an attention on my hip area. But when I saw this wonderful printed skirt online I just couldn’t resist – she instantly reminded me on an old 50s movies and actresses I just love to watch!
All pictures were taken on Riva in my hometown Split, on a bit cold but wonderful sunny day 🙂 !
My dear visitor – If you just occasionally check this blog, or even better, if you know me and often meet me on the streets of my hometown Split, you have learn by now one fact – I love colorful, quirky clothes and I adore Spanish fashion brand Desigual.
I first saw Desigual clothing item – a coat – maybe six or seven years ago on my faculty colleague, and I found out she bought it in Barcelona. I was literally stunned by the beauty of that coat – and was hooked forever 🙂 !
In those days it wasn’t easy to find Desigual in Croatia, but my faithful friend E-bay was quick to help, and my collection started to grow. To this day it remains my favorite fashion brand because represents everything I love in fashion : bold colors and patterns, amazing materials, and cut that emphasizes female curves and figure.
Desigual was founded in 1984., the year of my birth, and the Spanish word desigual translates as : different, unequal….Something I can easily relate to… Coincidence? I don’t think so 😉 !
I feel so lucky and blessed for spending my Easter holidays in one of my dream cities – Barcelona. This is my third time in this gorgeous, colorful city, but for the first time with my husband dearest 🙂 ! Barcelona, in so many ways, reminds me on my hometown Split. Mediterranean sea and mentality, but on a much bigger scale. And of course – colors!! As you could notice, I loooove colors and Barcelona is a city which definitely isn’t afraid of them – and the fact that Barcelona is a home town of my favorite fashion brand, Desigual, also helps with my undying love for this city !
I will share with you some of the pictures taken during our visit. We are still in the town and will soon be of to enjoy some cava !
I love Freddie Mercury and Queen. No…I ADORE Freddie Mercury and Queen. I love so many bands and so many performers, but for me Freddie and Queen always were and always will be my number one. Love them or hate them, you cannot ignore pure talent and charisma from all of the band members. And what about Freddie? An epitome of rock star and true band front man. The Voice. Songwriting skills. Drama and flamboyance. The mustache 🙂 . He had it all. I would give my right arm in a blink of an eye for the opportunity, an honor to see them live…but without Freddie..I don’t see the point.
For this year carnival in my home town Split I decided to go as…well, you can guess…one and only, Freddie Mercury, darlings. I choose one specific outfit of Freddie which I particularly like – yellow jacket and white pants which he wore on his very last tour with Queen in 1986. Queen were on the verge of break up, but their unforgettable performance on Live Aid gave them new love for Queen and each other. Soon after, they recorded the new album, went on their biggest tour ever…and Freddie managed to make an opera album – all in two years span!
My friend Stela joined me as Freddie’s dear friend, Spanish opera singer Montserrat Caballe, and with my sister I tried to re-enact the famous picture of Freddie sitting on the back of no other than Darth Vader 🙂 .
