B – movie Halloween

Here in Croatia we usually don’t celebrate Halloween because we have our own masquerade parties in February, but if we have excuse to dress up in costumes two time in one year – why not 😉 ?

 The Celts, who lived 2,000 years ago in the area that is now Ireland, the United Kingdom and northern France, celebrated their new year on November 1. They believed that on the night before the new year, the boundary between the worlds of the living and the dead became blurred. On the night of October 31 they celebrated Samhain, when it was believed that the ghosts of the dead returned to earth.

Irish immigrants fleeing Ireland’s potato famine of 1846, helped to popularize the celebration of Halloween in USA. Taking from Irish and English traditions, Americans began to dress up in costumes and go house to house asking for food or money, a practice that eventually became today’s “trick-or-treat” tradition.

I’m a big fan of 40s and 50s B (B standing for a low budget) horror movies, especially of those which are so campy that you and up laughing instead of being scared, but tonight we plan to spend the evening watching our favorite B Horror flick made in 70s- Rocky Horror Picture Show, favorite midnight movie in USA for last 40 years.
And if you need some inspiration, one of our favorite geek sites, Loot Crate, who offers monthly subscription boxes,  has a great space Invasion crate, do check it out!
Hope you’ll enjoy the pictures 😉

DEE-constructed

I was always such a fashion fanatic, but after I started to learn the craft of sewing I realized just how hard is to make a wearable piece of clothing. Since then I have much more appreciation for “behind the scenes” work which takes in designing and making our everyday outfits.

Designing is a 3D art, and you have to be careful how will your design look from different corners. Technology today allows designers to make gravity defying clothes, with new material and sewing machines coming along every day.

I adore Dior haute couture constructed gowns from the 40s and futuristic fashion of the 60s, where construction became an important element of design.

Hope you’ll enjoy some of my favorites, along with new pics taken by Miss Stela 🙂 !

Split 3D

My pregnancy and this unbelievable heat wave have taken the best of me, but after a month long hiatus from blogosphere it is finally time for new blog post 🙂 !

Today’s post will feature something exciting and new that happened in our hometown last month – SPLIT 3D STREET ART FESTIVAL!
I would have been a shame not to use the art created by the wonderfully talented young street artists and try and combine it with an equally “urban” outfit.

…and in their own words:

SPLIT 3D Street Art Festival is a non-profit event where artists draw 3D images with chalk on the sidewalk. This peculiar way of drawing is known as the “one-point view” because the full visual impression is obtained only from a certain angle. It originated from the tradition of “Madonara”, artist of sacred images in Italy. Bard of the modern variants of artists is Kurt Wenner.

SPLIT 3D STREET ART FESTIVAL 2015 in it’s first year of organization, devoted exclusively for promoting anamorfism, the art of the 21st century, with the goal of educating young artists from Split and with a mission to become a traditional festival as the best promoter of Split, Dalmatia.”

Hope you’ll enjoy the pictures, kisses from Split!

Happy First Birthday “Miss Dee STyle” Blog :) !

Today “Miss Dee STyle” blog celebrates it’s first birthday! Even writing that sentence makes me feel emotional on so many levels. Having a fashion blog and be able to share my love for everything colorful and unique was an idea for a long period of time, but a year ago I finally decided to give it a try. It started like a very small and humble page with rather modest viewing statistics, but like a small child it started to grow up and have a life of it’s own 🙂

It brought me so many new friends and acquaintances, primarily from Croatia and Bosnia, and later from the rest of the world.

The main goal of “Miss Dee STyle” was to show my love for clothing, fashion and handcrafts. I consider myself a rather geeky woman so behind every post, behind every picture has to be a story, a certain theme, something that inspires me in my everyday life. All of the outfits were inspired by something – movies, books, painters, historical events or persons – I love and admire.

I wanna thank every single one of you for reading these posts, watching these pictures, your comments…they all mean a world to me!

My husband, my family, my friends are such a great inspiration and I wanna thank them for their support 🙂

Last, but most important thank you goes to my friend and photographer Stela who always encourages me and through this time was my biggest supporter! Thank you girlie!

For today’s birthday post I decided to put the pictures of all the looks featured in the blog in it’s first year. Below every picture is a link for the blog post in which that particular look was featured –  hope you’ll enjoy it!

Kisses from Miss Dee !
