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 was born in late September, and maybe because of that I have such love for Autumn. There is something special in the beautiful range of colors in this time of year – red, brown, yellow…Fallen leaves under my feet…a constant fight between sudden rain showers and comforting rays of sun…
And during that time I pull out my favorite Autumn items – tartan patterned skirt and jacket, with my faithful brown hat. Tartan is a fabric which constantly returns under fashion radars and will never go out of style…it is always being reinvented an it is here to stay. Tartan has some rebellion in it – it is a symbol of Scottish rebellion against England and also one of the main fashion statements in punk culture.
So the best way to start a fashion blog is with some classics – little black dress and black leather jacket are definitely a must items of every wardrobe….but besides them some of the items I consider classics are Dr Martens boots and unique handbags….
I’m a bit of the handbag addict..and proud of it….:)) One of my favorite bags is this one, Twiggy themed bag by the very talented Poppy Bags from Mostar…
I love 60s fashion, and both Dr Martens boots and Twiggy started to take over and redefine the fashion in the same year, 1966. Until this day they are widely recognized as promoters of English fashion.
