I’m always happy and proud to wear jewelry and clothing with a story behind them. In my life I try to find items that tell me something…and when I do find those kind of items and with them their creators…well the feeling is fantastic!
Recently in my hometown Split, thanks to my dear friend Gorana who works there, I discovered a beautiful jewelry store named “Salt” – and trust me, jewelry in that store really “speaks to me”!
The story behind today’s necklace is told by it’s creator Lara, and I hope you will like it 🙂
I’m a big fan of printed T-shirts, and I truly don’t know how many of them is there in my collection, but this newest addition just took my breath away – even pictures with high resolution camera don’t do justice to this beautiful skyline themed print.
It was such a boring rainy winter day when I got this T-shirt, and it instantly gave me an idea for the look of this blog post – sea and the sky, clash of blue and white, first hint of Summer days which are just behind the corner.
All the pictures were taken in my beautiful hometown Split, true heaven on Earth for those of us who know how to appreciate it.
I just love Spring…nature awakens, trees are in bloom. One of the most beautiful sights for me is a cherry tree in it’s full bloom. It is not easy to find cherry tree in Split, but this beautiful almond tree helped us in our photo shoot :). I enjoyed so much finally being able to wear this beautiful cherry blossom or sakura printed skirt combined with cherry inspired jewelry and purse!
Cherry blossom trees, also known as sakura, typically bloom in late March and early April. Many in Japan celebrate by holding flower viewing parties and picnicking under the trees. This custom, also knows as Hanami in Japan, dates back to as early as 710 CE when festivals were held specifically for the coming of the sakura.
In historic Japan, the cherry blossom represented morality, since the blossom itself has a short life span. Now it has come to symbolize innocence, simplicity, and the beginning of spring. In some cultures it represents feminine beauty, love, passion, and hope for greater things to come.
Today’s post was inspired by one of my all time favorite TV-series, “Breaking Bad”. “Breaking Bad” tells the story of Walter White, fantastically portrayed by versatile Bryan Cranston, a struggling high school chemistry teacher diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer, who, together with his former student Jesse Pinkman, portrayed by Aaron Paul, turns to a life of crime, producing and selling crystallized methamphetamine to secure his family’s financial future before he dies.
That would be a really short info on a TV-series which for months kept me captivated with it’s amazing storyline and characters. You will often laugh at these characters, question their morality and eventually even hate them, but you cannot deny the sheer brilliance behind it!
This “Heisenberg” T-shirt by Choies (Heisenberg being the alias of Walter White) was such a great and unexpected gift. I decided to combine it with my version of Walter’s trademark black hat, blue suede heels and skirt with blue tulle detail – color of their product, crystal meth.
Hope you’ll enjoy this post!

One of my favorite fashion blogs is the one written by Miss Rebecca – “Winnipeg Style”. She has such a quirky and colorful style which I adore. Thanks to her post “Perfect Fall Coat” I discovered this wonderful Fall/Winter coat by brand Choies and totally fell in love with it. Rebecca bought hers in blue, but I wanted to do something totally opposite of my usual color choices and go with one color which is rarely seen in my wardrobe – pink.
I hated to wear anything pink as a child, but after long 30 years I finally decided to give that color a chance! What do you think about my baby pink coat and what are your feelings towards this girlie color?
Kisses and have a great weekend!
Coat, shirt and skirt by Choies
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 🙂 !
Recently I forced myself to rearrange my T-shirt collection. Some of them were way too old and were sadly thrown away, some of them I gave to my friends or cousins. I quickly realized how I have one constant, rarely changed pattern in my T-shirts, and that is my love for prints. When shopping, or just browsing through the different internet sites I’m always attracted to the printed clothing. Prints are here to show our interests – music, books, movies.You can wear ordinary monochromatic pants or skirts, but that one printed T-shirt lifts the outfit and gives her a brand new meaning.
This season Zara had some amazing prints in their collection and I couldn’t resist to this big haired, big eyed elegant lady! Hope you will like this look, kisses and have a great Christmas holidays ! :*

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!
