These Boots Are Made For Walkin’

Winter has finally arrived in my home town Split, and gave me the perfect reason to pull out of my wardrobe all the wonderful coats and boots which were waiting patiently for their time of the year. It is essential to have nice and quality black boots and black coat in your wardrobe. They are easy to combine for work or casual outings, and can be quickly changed with a simple touch of nice shawl or some statement jewelry.

If you are a regular on this blog it is not to hard for you to notice that I’m in love in everything bright and colorful – Winter time will not stop me in that affection, you can be sure in that 🙂 ! These leather and wool boots by Spanish brand The Art Company are everything I can ask in my Winter boots –  warm, high-quality, comfortable, bright  and unique – I feel so happy while wearing them 🙂

What are yours favorites winter favorites, do tell !

Until the next year, I wish you all happy New Year – 2014 was great, and I can’t wait to meet 2015!

Kisses, Dee

Fashion. Art. Medicine. Dee.

Today’s blog post represents the very core of this entire blog: my love for Art and Croatian design combined with my other great love and job – Medicine. I already wrote about one of my favorite Croatian fashion brands, “Herman Design” in  “Made in Croatia” blog post. I’m honored to be a proud owner of one of their printed leather handbags.

On my model I wanted  to combine my profession ( I am a doctor), love for unique handbags, and the motive of Hygieia from the Gustav Klimt’s sadly destroyed “Medicine” painting. Klimt is my favorite painter next to Salvador Dali, Vincent van Gogh and Frida Kahlo.

Hygieia was the daughter of the god of medicine, Asclepius. She was the goddess/personification of health, cleanliness and sanitation.

If you ever visit Split I recommend you to check out the wonderful “Gallery of Fine Arts”, where these pictures were taken.

Times are hard for dreamers, Amelie

I think everyone of us has a film to which we often return. I watched film „Amelie“ so many times, but it never fails to cheer me up. Busy and colorful streets of Paris, eccentric characters, vibrant colors and fashion are a recipe for the perfect movie night. The movie soundtrack is one of my favorites, and by listening to it I feel immersed in the wonderful world of adventure, traveling and love.

And what is life without colors, imagination and eccentricity?

Definitely not the life I would like to live!

Always trust a librarian

Ever since I was a little girl, books have played an important role in my life. I learnt to read from a very young age, and my mother quickly realised that it is a  better option to buy me some books than toys  – I totally ignored my dolls 🙂 !

Books were a gate to some new, unknown worlds – and they still are. I cannot imagine a month without reading, and there are usually two or three books on my night table waiting for their turn.

Today I have a huge collection of books, but nothing cannot replace that special feeling of visiting libraries – librarian is one of my dream jobs. Some of my fondest childhood and adult memories are from my visits to the local libraries…what new world will I discover that day? Tolkien’s Middle-earth, Herbert’s Dune…or will I travel with Orient Express thanks to Agatha Christie…possibilities are endless…
