One of my favorite places in Split is definitely Retro Caffe, located just below university campus. For a long time we had a plan to do photo shoot there, and we finally managed to do it a couple of weeks ago.
If you are a lover of retro culture, 50s and 60s, or at least drinking your coffee surrounded by amazing colorful environment, this is your place to be. Because of work and family schedule I don’t visit it as much as I would like to, but every time I do it really puts a smile on my face, just the fact there is this small, positive place in my hometown.
All the vibrant colors, amazing pictures and wallpapers, unique new and vintage furniture…you really don’t know where to look at first!
We really enjoyed taking these pictures, but if you can visit it for yourself, you won’t regret it 🙂

All the beautiful ladies!

„Blue Velvet“, film noir by David Lynch, is one of those movies that you love or hate – myself being in the first group. The film brought back long forgotten „noir“ genre for a new film audience, with a very important role of its music soundtrack and fashion. Until main femme fatale Isabella Rosselini had appeared in her blue velvet robe, the velvet wasn’t very popular material, but since then it has had its fashion revival. Every couple of years fashion designers give their hommage to blue velvet and the movie itself, with good or not so great results. Velvet is rather difficult fabric to work with, and not very easy to pull off when wearing – you certainly won’t wear it in your ordinary everyday outings. It is perfect for evening wear, and even today stands as a symbol of flamboyance with a touch of mistery, for which we all yearn in our lives.
So the best way to start a fashion blog is with some classics – little black dress and black leather jacket are definitely a must items of every wardrobe….but besides them some of the items I consider classics are Dr Martens boots and unique handbags….
I’m a bit of the handbag addict..and proud of it….:)) One of my favorite bags is this one, Twiggy themed bag by the very talented Poppy Bags from Mostar…
I love 60s fashion, and both Dr Martens boots and Twiggy started to take over and redefine the fashion in the same year, 1966. Until this day they are widely recognized as promoters of English fashion.
