Pop Art stole my heart

Today is a rather special day! Besides the fact that today is the first day of Spring, there is one other small fact –ย  this is my 30th post, hooray ๐Ÿ™‚ ! One of the main goals when I started to do this blog (besides showing you my obsession with Desigual ๐Ÿ˜‰ ), was to show some of the amazing Croatian designers. Croatia is a a rather small country, but artistic talent here is huge, in my humble opinion ๐Ÿ™‚ !

I love this skirt by very talented Croatian designer Zoran Aragovic from Bite My Style fashion design, and she inspired me for today’s topic – Pop Art, and it’s neverending influence in fashion and design. I love my clothes to be colorful and bold, and this outfit doesn’t fail me in that department – hope you’ll enjoy it!

Put on your red shoes

Marylin Monroe once said: โ€žGive a girl the right shoe, and she can conquer the world!โ€œ What about high heels? In my high school days heels were shoes for older, sophisticated women and my high school prom was the first time I wore them. Since then we’ve had a love-hate relationship. I considered them painful and always preferred my Dr Martens or All-Stars. But everything changed 5 years ago…I took tango lessons with my boyfriend and showed up in my ballerina flats. My tango teacher immediately said: โ€žThis won’t work, you must wear high heels. My then boyfriend, now husband, is taller than me, and in tango you have to lean toward your partner which is impossible in flats. So I bought high heels and learnt to walk in them..and well…the rest is history! I will always prefer flat shoes, but there is something so elegant and sophisticated in high heels. They can lift up every outfit and give it something special. Some of my favourites are these basic red high heels…in them I always feel like Dorothy going to Oz…there is some magic in them..โ€œClose your eyes and tap your heels three times…โ€œ
