Shoe Gal

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?

Kisses from Dina AKA Miss Dee ๐Ÿ™‚ !

Walking the A-line

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 ๐Ÿ™‚ !

Kisses, Dee

Green is the Warmest Color

Everyone one of us has a favorite color – that one color which is a little bit above all of the other ones. Although I’m a big colors fanatic ๐Ÿ˜‰ , you could probably guess by now that for me the favorite color is one and only – green. Since I was a little kid I preferred her in my wardrobe – green always had soothing and peaceful influence on me. Green is the color in which I feel most comfortable, and even at my home decorations I always prefer green details.

But on the other side green is a great color if you wanna stand out and run away from your safety zone – perfect color for eternal introvert/extrovert fight inside my head ๐Ÿ™‚ !

Hope you will enjoy these pictures, taken in beautiful little city Stobrec, located 10 minutes from my hometown Split and check out my all time favorite selection of green dresses, both in popular culture and on the fashion runways. And do tell me something about your color favorites!

Kisses!

She’s a Lady

โ€œBeing female is a matter of birth, being a woman is a matter of age, but being a lady is a matter of choice.โ€ย ย 

I often have conversations with some of my friends about the meaning of a true lady and a true gentleman. Is that just something archaic that belongs to the past, or is it possible to maintain ladylike qualities in the modern times?

Times change, and people change, and these are surely not innocent times. But I can’t help myself and think how today we feel strange when someone around us is not vulgar, when he or she is polite and well-mannered.

Are ladies and gentlemen an extinct species? I truly hope they are not โ€“ it would be a sad world to live in!

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
