Walking the A-line

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 🙂 !

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!

Kisses, Dee

Grey Matter

If there is one constant pattern in my wardrobe it is definitely my love for colors! But during the cold fall and winter days I just love to play with grey and all of her shades (enter Fifty Shades of Grey joke here 😉 )

She can look sophisticated for work, but also playful at day and mysterious in the evening. She is a great basic color and a must in every fall and winter wardrobe – combinations are endless and don’t have to be plain and boring. I hope you will get some fashion inspiration from today’s look !

Kisses!

She gives me needles and pins…

My personal style often balances on the edge of being over-accessorized. I love scarves, watches, handbags, and jewelry in general – and I’m not afraid to use it 🙂 ! I started to wear earrings when I cut off my hair ten years ago, and I occasionally wear necklaces, bracelets and rings, but brooches are my biggest love. During the winter I pin them on my coats and jackets, and during the summer they end up everywhere – on my T-shirts, dresses and bags – even shoes if it’s possible!

Every brooch I own has its own story – I don’t buy them because they are trendy. They have to inspire me, and add that extra touch of my own interests and style to the whole outfit I’m wearing.

My profession doesn’t allow me too much color or personal style during the working hours, but a nice little brooch can make a lot of difference on my plain white uniform.

Stop bugging me Beetlejuice!

At the beginning of today’s post I have to say – I have never had so much fun being photographed like for this photo shoot. There are a lot of goth-inspired clothing items in my wardrobe and I really wanted to use them – story about Beetlejuice and Lydia was perfect for that. It was interesting to portray two complete opposites – quiet, eternally depressed Lydia, and slightly crazy and always scheming Beetlejuice – Dr. Jekyll and Mr Hyde indeed. After the shoot I stayed in a little bit crazy over-the-top Beetlejuice mood. I cannot even imagine how hard it is for actors who portray these kind of characters to return to normal, everyday lives – they really possess you! They can be really fun to play, because every one of us wants to escape reality sometimes and outleash our inner emotions. But also, after a while they can be quite dangerous, so it’s better to use them in small dosages 🙂 !

Enjoy!
