My Gipsy Soul

I’m always happy and proud to wear jewelry and clothing with a story behind them. In my life I try to find items that tell me something…and when I do find those kind of items and with them their creators…well the feeling is fantastic!

Recently in my hometown Split, thanks to my dear friend Gorana who works there, I discovered a beautiful jewelry store named “Salt” – and trust me, jewelry in that store really “speaks to me”!

The story behind today’s necklace is told by it’s creator Lara, and I hope you will like it 🙂

Cloche hats and Green-eyed Cats

Having a short hair has its benefits. If you are always late and running from one place to another like me, it is really a perfect style – you can wash and dry it in a matter of minutes, without loosing to much of that precious time. Short hair is a blessing during the hot Summer days – in those days I am envied by many of my girl friends. Only time of the year I catch myself missing my long hair is during windy Winter days when I think my poor ears will probably fall off. I love to wear hats, especially beanies and fedoras, but this Winter I fell in love with this beautiful cloche hat by Sisley. Cloche hats first became popular in the 1920s, when they were worn by rebellious flapper girls who wanted to emulate boyish short haired look, but also to be feminine and sophisticated – I hope I also managed to that 🙂 !

Diamonds and Backpacks

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 !
