DEE-constructed

I was always such a fashion fanatic, but after I started to learn the craft of sewing I realized just how hard is to make a wearable piece of clothing. Since then I have much more appreciation for “behind the scenes” work which takes in designing and making our everyday outfits.

Designing is a 3D art, and you have to be careful how will your design look from different corners. Technology today allows designers to make gravity defying clothes, with new material and sewing machines coming along every day.

I adore Dior haute couture constructed gowns from the 40s and futuristic fashion of the 60s, where construction became an important element of design.

Hope you’ll enjoy some of my favorites, along with new pics taken by Miss Stela 🙂 !

Back in Yellow !

Finally, after a long break, arrives my first post pregnancy post 🙂 ! First of all, I have to thank my friends Stela and Ivna for keeping this little blog alive with their amazing posts while I was trying to figure out my new mommy role.

My little baby girl Ena is now three and a half months old, and she has become our new partner whenever Stela and I manage some time to do photo shoots.

I thought it is appropriate to start this new fashion blogger / Ena’s mommy adventure in my colorful style – and which color is the best one two announce new life, new energy, new start? Of course, it’s splash of yellow!

Yellow is the color that captures our attention more than any other color. In almost every culture yellow represents sunshine, happiness, and warmth. It is the most visible color of the spectrum and the human eye processes yellow first. This explains why it is used for cautionary signs and emergency rescue vehicles.

It’s a primary color and so it’s the base of endless shades of colors. Yellow remains full, pure, and immune to all chromatic contamination.

It’s not an easy color to wear, and it looks better in contrast with black – add just a little bit of yellow to your everyday outfit, and trust me, you WILL be noticed 🙂

Enough with the small talk, let’s show you some pictures!

Everyone I meet, even random people on the street ask me about Ena’s pushchair. It’s by the fantastic British brand Cosatto, and it was love at first sight!

I feel very much ashamed that I didn’t post anything for almost a month, but whole this time I’m very much online, checking out other bloggers and getting bigger day by day – because yes, I’m expecting my first baby in the late Summer 🙂 !

The Sky Above

I’m a big fan of printed T-shirts, and I truly don’t know how many of them is there  in my collection, but this newest addition just took my breath away – even pictures with high resolution camera don’t do justice to this beautiful skyline themed print.

It was such a boring rainy winter day when I got this T-shirt, and it instantly gave me an idea for the look of this blog post – sea and the sky, clash of blue and white, first hint of Summer days which are just behind the corner.

All the pictures were taken in my beautiful hometown Split, true heaven on Earth for those of us who know how to appreciate it.

Breaking Bad

Today’s post was inspired by one of my all time favorite TV-series, “Breaking Bad”. “Breaking Bad” tells the story of Walter White, fantastically portrayed by versatile Bryan Cranston, a struggling high school chemistry teacher diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer, who, together with his former student Jesse Pinkman, portrayed by Aaron Paul, turns to a life of crime, producing and selling crystallized methamphetamine to secure his family’s financial future before he dies.

That would be a really short info on a TV-series which for months kept me captivated with it’s amazing storyline and characters. You will often laugh at these characters, question their morality and eventually even hate them, but you cannot deny the sheer brilliance behind it!

This “Heisenberg” T-shirt by Choies (Heisenberg being the alias of Walter White) was such a great and unexpected gift. I decided to combine it with my version of Walter’s trademark black hat, blue suede heels and skirt with blue tulle detail – color of their product, crystal meth.

Hope you’ll enjoy this post!

Kisses, Dina aka Miss Dee

Only Leather !

One clothing item which can never go out of fashion is a quality leather jacket. Today you can find them in all possible colors and shapes, but for me there is only one classic – leather jacket made in black leather. Being a student with a very limited amount of money, I begged my mother to buy me one – when I passed in term all of my exams at the fifth year of medicine, this fantastic jacket was my present – without any doubt I can say that it still is my favorite and most worn clothing item.

I can pair her with all sorts of different items – with some nice shirts and skirts for my job, with the little black dress for the evening outings, but my most favorite combination is also the simplest one – just a T-shirt and the pair of jeans and I’m ready to go!

Leather jacket always gives a little bit of an edge and of course, a little bit of rock’n’roll to every outfit, so who can resist her?
