These Boots Are Made For Walkin’

Winter has finally arrived in my home town Split, and gave me the perfect reason to pull out of my wardrobe all the wonderful coats and boots which were waiting patiently for their time of the year. It is essential to have nice and quality black boots and black coat in your wardrobe. They are easy to combine for work or casual outings, and can be quickly changed with a simple touch of nice shawl or some statement jewelry.

If you are a regular on this blog it is not to hard for you to notice that I’m in love in everything bright and colorful – Winter time will not stop me in that affection, you can be sure in that 🙂 ! These leather and wool boots by Spanish brand The Art Company are everything I can ask in my Winter boots –  warm, high-quality, comfortable, bright  and unique – I feel so happy while wearing them 🙂

What are yours favorites winter favorites, do tell !

Until the next year, I wish you all happy New Year – 2014 was great, and I can’t wait to meet 2015!

Kisses, Dee

Lover of Life, Lover of Prints

Recently I forced myself to rearrange my T-shirt collection. Some of them were way too old and were sadly thrown away, some of them I gave to my friends or cousins. I quickly realized how I have one constant, rarely changed pattern in my T-shirts, and that is my love for prints. When shopping, or just browsing through the different internet sites I’m always attracted to the printed clothing. Prints are here to show our interests – music, books, movies.You can wear ordinary monochromatic pants or skirts, but that one printed T-shirt lifts the outfit and gives her a brand new meaning.

This season Zara had some amazing prints in their collection and I couldn’t resist to this big haired, big eyed elegant lady! Hope you will like this look, kisses and have a great Christmas holidays ! :*

Autumn Leaves

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. Here, in my hometown Split and surrounding area, we are mostly blessed with warm and sunny days – a perfect balance between the hot summer and cold winter.

But the colors!! I just love them. It is truly nature at it’s best – green, yellow, red and orange…heaven for my eyes. So today’s post is my homage to the wonderful Autumn shades – enjoy!

Kisses, Dee.

Oxford Babe

Last autumn I decided to find the perfect pair of shoes which I could wear in that awkward season period between wearing ballet flats and winter boots. As always, I decided to find them on the site I know the best – never ending wonder of E-bay !

After a long search I fell in love with these wonderful Oxford shoes by Iron Fist. They are very comfortable, easy to combine with all sorts of outfits – and I have to admit – when I wear them I just have an urge to dance in the rain – Fred Astaire style 🙂 !

“I am Catwoman. Hear me roar.”

The night crept over the Gotham City calmly like a silken scarf. From the distance, rhythmical clacking of the city subway echoes, blended between the sounds of police sirens, chaos of the traffic jams and barks of strayed dogs. Fumes of the factories, the smog, the waste and the thick led sky. This, is my city; this is my jungle. For all of you who might not know, the name is Selina… Selina Kyle. Who am I actually? Perhaps you caught a glimpse of me in your wildest fantasies… and your most hidden fears. Because this is my jungle. And in that jungle, I am the meanest cat of them all. I am – the Catwoman; hear me roar!

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 😉 , 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 🙂 !

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!

Lilacs and Parasols

Couple of weeks ago I received  a beautiful gift  – gift so precious that I’m still amazed by it and honored for receiving it. My friend and photographer Stela, together with her mother, gave me an old vintage cocktail dress that once belonged to her grandmother.

From a very early age I had fascination with fashion, but not only in terms of combining everyday outfits and eventually, taking pictures of some of them for this little blog – I love history of fashion, fabrics, stories behind various fashion items and people that made them.

Stela’s grandmother was a first class old school seamstress, and also a true fashionista. This beautiful dress with delicate lilac print has so much history behind her. It was made by vintage clothing firm Haroú, for which I found the following quote:

Not yet in his class is William Pearson, also a designer of talent. Mr. Pearson has had his own business for six of his 36 years before that working for Haroú, a California concern. His clothes have a young, contemporary look.” (1966) So, Pearson designed for Haroú”.

When I decided to do the post with this amazing dress my first thought was ” I gotta get myself a parasol! ” Truly, in my mind, no summer vintage look is complete without that perfect little accessorize. Now definitely a rarity in our everyday fashion, parasol is slowly making his return on fashion runway – and I hope it is here to stay 🙂 !

All the pictures were taken in the front yard of “Ivan Mestrovic Gallery” in my hometown Split. This beautiful gallery is actually a family palace of one of our most famous sculptors, Ivan Mestrovic – if you ever visit Split you must check it out!

Enjoy!

Queen of the Jungle

Summer months are just perfect for the one trend which cannot go unnoticed – jungle print. I haven’t worn Desigual for a while 😉 , so it’s time to return to my favorite fashion brand!

I found this beautiful dress at E-bay couple of years ago, again second hand, and it was of course, love at first sight. She just screams summer, jungle and wilderness.

For blog posts I first decide on outfit, and after it, with my biggest helper, photographer Stela, I decide on location.

We wanted to do the jungle themed post, but we couldn’t afford trip to Amazonian rain forest 🙂 , so we hope that this jungle voyage with a little bit of help of Photoshop will do the trick 🙂 !

Enjoy!

Sailor Girl !

Sorry for a little bit belated post but I’m having love and hate relationship with my laptop these days! The temperature is dangerously rising in Croatia, and for a very short period of time I managed to wear my, how I like to call it : “OMG, where I parked my yacht ?!” look 🙂

I love the pure simplicity of this look – with only three colors : white, red and navy blue, you can make numerous combinations of navy looks. These looks automatically give you a feeling of summer, nostalgia and old school elegance.

Enjoy!

Spring Bomb

Finally, a new blog post! After two weeks without my faithful laptop we are reunited and ready for some new fashion adventures 🙂 !

Inspiration for today’s post is a fashion item which is quite popular last couple of Spring/Summer seasons – the bomber jacket. Bomber jacket is a perfect item for the days between sudden Spring colds and Summer heats. Designers recognized her potential and shops like Zara, H&M and Asos are full of bomber jackets in all possible prints.

Last month, while in Barcelona, in Desigual outlet store I purchased my new prized possession, beautiful embroidered bomber jacket which I can combine with just about anything.

Enjoy!
