Couple of weeks ago I decided to make a collage of all the handbags, shoes and jewelry I wore in my posts till this date. I already published handbags post (What About that Bag?), and enjoyed so much in making today’s post – it is really great to see all these shoes in one place!
I choose the title of the post after an e-mail address of true shoe maniac, one and only Miss Carrie Bradshaw from TV-series Sex and The City.
So my questions are – How many shoes do you have, which shoe style do you prefer and what are your favorites in my collection?
I recently visited beautiful Bosnian city – Mostar, and thanks to my dear friend Helena, who lives there and runs my favorites, “Poppy Bags”, I discovered perfect store which sells only American brands, including one of my new favorites – “Pink Martini Collection”. I fell in love with their amazing retro clothing, but because my poor closet is on the verge of bursting I bought only this beautiful wool printed dress.
My photographer Stela and I always try to find new locations for our photo shoots. We live in really beautiful, but rather small city, so that isn’t always an easy task, especially considering the fact that we just recently published our 70th post! This dress is so vibrant and full of colors, so Stela had an idea of using totally minimalistic background – these long hallways in one of Split’s biggest buildings was just the perfect location for the pictures – hope you will like them!
I usually do my photo shoots during the weekend – that is the only time of the week when my dear photographer Stela and I have enough time to meet up and take the pictures. Of course, nice weather is always a plus in our blogger escapades! This weekend I got sick with a stomach flu and all our plans had to be postponed. Because of that I decided to realize an idea I had for a while – make a collage of all of my handbags, shoes and jewelry that I wore in former blog posts – today I started with my favorites – the bags 🙂 !
I’m really happy that among my handbag collection is a large number of handmade products and that some of them have found their new owners. But one thing is for sure – you won’t find one quite “normal” model among this collection!
How many bags do you have, and what are your favorites in my collection?
One of the main lady trends in the last couple of seasons is a true 50s classic – A line skirt. Usually reserved for those who love rockabilly subculture, A – line once again conquered fashion runways, and after that the streets.
A – line skirts are very feminine clothing item but I was a bit skeptical about wearing them – I have classical pear body shape and I didn’t want to draw to much of an attention on my hip area. But when I saw this wonderful printed skirt online I just couldn’t resist – she instantly reminded me on an old 50s movies and actresses I just love to watch!
All pictures were taken on Riva in my hometown Split, on a bit cold but wonderful sunny day 🙂 !
Recently I forced myself to rearrange my T-shirt collection. Some of them were way too old and were sadly thrown away, some of them I gave to my friends or cousins. I quickly realized how I have one constant, rarely changed pattern in my T-shirts, and that is my love for prints. When shopping, or just browsing through the different internet sites I’m always attracted to the printed clothing. Prints are here to show our interests – music, books, movies.You can wear ordinary monochromatic pants or skirts, but that one printed T-shirt lifts the outfit and gives her a brand new meaning.
This season Zara had some amazing prints in their collection and I couldn’t resist to this big haired, big eyed elegant lady! Hope you will like this look, kisses and have a great Christmas holidays ! :*

In today’s post, besides my outfit of course 😉 , I wanna show you my latest little project! I’ve been sewing bags for a full year now, and the new skill I’ve learned was the perfect move for the handbag lover as myself.
I often end up with back pain form wearing my classical, always full, shoulders bags and I found it hard to find that one perfect backpack. Because of that I decided to make it myself! This backpack can be rearranged, and transformed to shoulder bag and messenger bag – who would have thought I would become practical in my 30s 🙂 ?!
Diamonds themed dress, big statement necklace, my favorite Catwoman and I’m ready to go !
If there is one constant pattern in my wardrobe it is definitely my love for colors! But during the cold fall and winter days I just love to play with grey and all of her shades (enter Fifty Shades of Grey joke here 😉 )
She can look sophisticated for work, but also playful at day and mysterious in the evening. She is a great basic color and a must in every fall and winter wardrobe – combinations are endless and don’t have to be plain and boring. I hope you will get some fashion inspiration from today’s look !
