One of my favorite places in Split is definitely Retro Caffe, located just below university campus. For a long time we had a plan to do photo shoot there, and we finally managed to do it a couple of weeks ago.
If you are a lover of retro culture, 50s and 60s, or at least drinking your coffee surrounded by amazing colorful environment, this is your place to be. Because of work and family schedule I don’t visit it as much as I would like to, but every time I do it really puts a smile on my face, just the fact there is this small, positive place in my hometown.
All the vibrant colors, amazing pictures and wallpapers, unique new and vintage furniture…you really don’t know where to look at first!
We really enjoyed taking these pictures, but if you can visit it for yourself, you won’t regret it 🙂

All the beautiful ladies!
Dress by Yamamay, bought at second hand store for 20kn /3.5 dollars
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 🙂 !
Three weeks ago one of my favorite Croatian designers, Robert Sever, launched a small capsule collection of clothing and accessories named “Instant Chic”. This beautiful and affordable collection was made in collaboration with main Croatian fashion internet page – FASHION.HR, and sold in BIPA stores.
I couldn’t wait for the collection to come to the stores, and when it did it was everything I could hope for – trendy, chic, unique and elegant. My absolute favorites are beautiful printed belt and matching purse with tassel detail, trendy fringe belt and this simple but oh so perfect black and grey dress – perfect for the day at the job, but also for the evening outing!
Besides my take on this beautiful collection you can also check out some pictures and advices for the one trend that just keeps on going this season – use of fringe and tassels in our everyday clothing items. In the beginning I wasn’t the biggest fan of this trend, but later I started to love it – only if used with measure of course 😉 !
„Blue Velvet“, film noir by David Lynch, is one of those movies that you love or hate – myself being in the first group. The film brought back long forgotten „noir“ genre for a new film audience, with a very important role of its music soundtrack and fashion. Until main femme fatale Isabella Rosselini had appeared in her blue velvet robe, the velvet wasn’t very popular material, but since then it has had its fashion revival. Every couple of years fashion designers give their hommage to blue velvet and the movie itself, with good or not so great results. Velvet is rather difficult fabric to work with, and not very easy to pull off when wearing – you certainly won’t wear it in your ordinary everyday outings. It is perfect for evening wear, and even today stands as a symbol of flamboyance with a touch of mistery, for which we all yearn in our lives.
