The Gloved One

Honore de Balzac once said: „Woman is the most charming creature, who changes her heart as easily as she does her gloves.”

There is something rather special in gloves. We often carry handbags, and wear shoes, belts and even hats, but gloves…not so much. Gloves had a huge role in fashion and in development of man kind, but they have always been a bit special. Firstly worn for protection in cold winter days, later they developed into a status symbol. I would give anything to live in the days when it was perfectly normal to wear gloves to the theatre, parties, dinners…even just walking around town. So these days cold weather is the perfect excuse to let my glove collection do all the talking! These black and red leather gloves are the first pair of gloves I have ever bought…they protect my hands of course, but with them I feel elegant, special and a bit devilish all at the same time :).

For the love of tartan

I was born in late September, and maybe because of that I have such love for Autumn. There is something special in the beautiful range of colors in this time of year – red, brown, yellow…Fallen leaves under my feet…a constant fight between sudden rain showers and comforting rays of sun…

And during that time I pull out my favorite Autumn items – tartan patterned skirt and jacket, with my faithful brown hat. Tartan is a fabric which constantly returns under fashion radars and will never go out of style…it is always being reinvented an it is here to stay. Tartan has some rebellion in it – it is a symbol of Scottish rebellion against England and also one of the main fashion statements in punk culture.

FULL COLOR!

On these rainy days in Split probably the best thing to do is stay at home, drink a cup of coffee and read a good book…but what if you need to go out, to your workplace or somewhere else? In that I case I like to go full color! My candy printed rain boots, colorful umbrella and bright yellow handbag are the perfect companions for these grey days – “Give me some colors !!”  is my life moto !

This yellow handbag brings me to the subject of my today’s post – handbags, purses and our love for them! Made by talented, Split-based Arka Design, I usually carry it during the autumn and winter days..its bright colors instantly cheer me up, it is unique…and of course – it has enough space for all the necessities a girl could need!

Made in England

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.
