Back in Yellow !

Finally, after a long break, arrives my first post pregnancy post 🙂 ! First of all, I have to thank my friends Stela and Ivna for keeping this little blog alive with their amazing posts while I was trying to figure out my new mommy role.

My little baby girl Ena is now three and a half months old, and she has become our new partner whenever Stela and I manage some time to do photo shoots.

I thought it is appropriate to start this new fashion blogger / Ena’s mommy adventure in my colorful style – and which color is the best one two announce new life, new energy, new start? Of course, it’s splash of yellow!

Yellow is the color that captures our attention more than any other color. In almost every culture yellow represents sunshine, happiness, and warmth. It is the most visible color of the spectrum and the human eye processes yellow first. This explains why it is used for cautionary signs and emergency rescue vehicles.

It’s a primary color and so it’s the base of endless shades of colors. Yellow remains full, pure, and immune to all chromatic contamination.

It’s not an easy color to wear, and it looks better in contrast with black – add just a little bit of yellow to your everyday outfit, and trust me, you WILL be noticed 🙂

Enough with the small talk, let’s show you some pictures!

Everyone I meet, even random people on the street ask me about Ena’s pushchair. It’s by the fantastic British brand Cosatto, and it was love at first sight!

The (T)rench Connection

There are clothes …and then there are classics. One of them is definitely trench coat. I think every one of us owns some variation of the trench coat for those rainy Spring  or Autumn days. I while ago I got my hands on this wonderful second-hand Burberry trench coat which I consider my prized possession.

One of my favorite movie scenes is the one from “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” when Audrey Hepburn (or Holly Golightly) is trying to catch her love interest Paul dressed in her trench coat.

Every time I put my trench coat on I feel like a part of an old school movie, and who doesn’t love to feel like that, if only for a couple of hours?

Being Edward Scissorhands

I believe there is always a time in life for any of us when we feel alone, misunderstood, and isolated. When you are growing up as one of the geeky, not-so-popular kids (I often felt that way), you tend to find your comfort in music and movies. I first discovered one of my favourite directors, Tim Burton, while watching his amazing take on the Batman franchize – Batman, and Batman Returns. But there is something rather special in his movie Edward Scissorhands. On a first hand such a bizarre story – a man with scissors instead of hist fingers, who tries to live a normal everyday life and ends up rejected. I watched this movie many times, and I always discover something new about it…Amazing music by Danny Elfman…beautiful and sometimes even naive story of love and friendship…and of course, great gothic and horror movies inspired fashion.

At the end, most of all, it is a a story of outcasts, rebells who often don’t fit in…but without them this world would be awfully boring and a uniformed place.

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 :).
