Only Leather !

One clothing item which can never go out of fashion is a quality leather jacket. Today you can find them in all possible colors and shapes, but for me there is only one classic – leather jacket made in black leather. Being a student with a very limited amount of money, I begged my mother to buy me one – when I passed in term all of my exams at the fifth year of medicine, this fantastic jacket was my present – without any doubt I can say that it still is my favorite and most worn clothing item.

I can pair her with all sorts of different items – with some nice shirts and skirts for my job, with the little black dress for the evening outings, but my most favorite combination is also the simplest one – just a T-shirt and the pair of jeans and I’m ready to go!

Leather jacket always gives a little bit of an edge and of course, a little bit of rock’n’roll to every outfit, so who can resist her?

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 :).

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!
