Denim on Denim

Time Machine

U modnom svetu, termin vintage se odnosi na kvalitetnu i firmiranu garderobu koja se vezuje na određeni vremenski period iz prošlosti. Osim potpisa dizajnera, vrednost ovakvoj garderobi često povećava i sama činjenica da ju je neka slavna ličnost prošetala. Međutim, neretko se vezuje za nenošenu garderobu. Kao neko kome kupovina u second hand buticima nije strana, povućiću paralelu između vintage i second hand butika. Garderoba u second hand buticima je nošena garderoba novije proizvodnje, manje poznatih ili potpuno nepoznatih brendova i često sa felerom. 

In the world of fashion, the term vintage applies to quality brand clothes that are tied to a specific era from past. Aside from the signature of the designer, the value of this kind of clothes comes from the fact that it was worn by a celebrity at one point. But, it can often be tied to clothes that weren't worn. As someone who doesn't find second hand shopping odd, I'll try to draw a parallel between vintage and second hand clothes shops. Clothes in second hand shops are usually newer in production and worn, made by less known or completely unknown brands and often with a factory mistake.

Chameleon

Uskršnji praznici, proleće, cveće na svakom koraku. Inspirisana ovim predivnim čarima aprila, odlučila sam se za razigranu odevnu kombinaciju - neobičan print, interesantan nakit, nežne boje. Za fotografije bih se zahvalila svom prijatelju Milošu Spasiću iz organizacije Ufotkavanje, o kome sam u više navrata pisala i koji je još jednom pokazao neverovatan talenat i umeće.
 
Easter holidays, spring, flowers everywhere. Inspired by the beautiful wonders of April, I decided on a playful combination - unusual print, peculiar jewelry and soft tones. I'd like to thank my friend Miloš Spasić from the Ufotkavanje organisation for the photographs. I've written about his works before and he showed his incredible talent and skill once again.

Makeup Vanity

Šminkanjem se ne bavim profesionalno. Ipak, ono mi daje posebno zadovoljstvo. U želji da sam čin šminkanja učinim potpunim, uredila sam mali šminkerski kutak. Danas vam taj kutak predstavljam. Kao ljubitelj starine, iskoristila sam nekoliko starinskih komada nameštaja. Medju njima je stara Singer mašina od koje je napravljen sto za šminkanje. Tu je i vintage noćni ormar namenjen odlaganju šminke. Plastične fioke se mogu kupiti u Jysk-u ili radnjama Alexandar cosmetics-a, a lepe keramičke šolje sigurno možete naći u maminim ili bakinim kredencima. U komentaru mi možete napisati kako vam se dopada i neke trikove organizovanja vašeg kutka za šminkanje.

I am not professional makeup artist, but it gives me a special pleasure. In order to make the act of making up complete, I decided to arrange a small makeup corner, and today I am presenting it to you. As a fan of the antiquities, I decided to use a couple of antique pieces of furniture. Among them is an old Singer sewing machine which was converted into a desk. There is also a retro night stand intended for putting the makeup away. The plastic drawers can be purchased in Jysk or Alexandar cosmetics stores, and beautiful ceramic mugs can be found in your mother's or grandmothers' cupboards. You can tell me in a comment if you like it and share some tips on organising your makeup corner.

Once Upon a Time

Sve je lepšte udvoje. Tako je i sa poziranjem, stoga mi je ovog puta društvo pred objektivom pravio moj prijatelj i model Dejan Milanović. Modelingom je počeo da se bavi prošle godine, kada je dobio ponudu da radi kampanju.. Od tada je imao priliku da učestvuje na revijama SFW-a (Serbian Fashion Week) u Novom sadu i BAFE-a (Balkan Art Fashion Event). Pored toga je student druge godine Fizičkog fakulteta u Beogradu. Na fotografijama bih se zahvalila svom talentovanom prijatelju Nikoli Ignjatoviću, koji je naše ideje sproveo u delo. Fotografija za njega predstavlja ljubav i hobi. Pored toga uspešno vodi facebook stranicu Uzmi me, namenjenu prodaji interesantnih stvari po pristupačnim cenama. Fotografije su nastale u prijatnom ambijentu Kluba Dvorište u Pančevu. Nadam se da vam se dopada!

Everything is better in a pair, and the situation is no different with posing. This time I posed in front of the lens in the company of my friend and model Dejan Milanović. He started modeling last year, when he received an offer to work on a campaign. Since then he had the opportunity to participate in fashion shows like SFW (Serbian Fashion Week) in Novi Sad and BAFE (Balkan Art Fashion Event). In addition, he is a student at the Faculty of Physics in Belgrade. I want to thank my talented friend Nikola Ignjatović for the photographs and taking our ideas into action. Photography is his love and hobby. Besides that, he successfully manages Facebook page Take me where he sells interesting things at affordable prices. The photos were taken in the pleasant ambience of the Club Garden in Pančevo. I hope you like it!

Grunge Fashion

Prošle nedelje sam imala priliku da posetim Novi Sad. Tamo me je dočekala moja predivna ekipa iz Ufotkavanja o kojoj sam pisala u prethodna dva posta. Kako biste išli u korak sa najnovijim dešavanjima lajkujte Ufotkavanje, kao i Dear Credit Card na facebook-u. Tom prilikom nastale su ove predivne fotografije, za koje je zaslužan moj dragi prijatelj i talentovan fotograf Miloš Spasić. Na moje zadovoljstvo, sa Novim Sadom su me povezali važni poslovni planovi koji će veoma obradovati ljubitelje starine. O tome ću uskoro pisati više, a do tada uživajte u ovoj objavi!

Last week I had an opportunity to visit Novi Sad. There I was greeted by my lovely crew from Ufotkavanje, about whom I've written in my last two posts. To follow the latest events, like Ufotkavanje as well as Dear Credit Card on Facebook. These beautiful photos were taken during the visit by my dear friend and talented photographer Miloš Spasić. To my pleasure, there were also some business-related plans that connected me with Novi Sad, which will hopefully delight fans of antiquities. I will write more about this soon, but until then, enjoy this post!

Grunge, a opet ženstveno. Mala crna haljina je definitivno važan komad u svakom ženskom garderoberu. Ova crna haljina je još jedan fenomenalan ulov u prodavnici polovne garderobe. Kroj je veoma jednostavan. U pitanju je mešavina žerseja i pamuka, stoga je jako udobna i univerzalna - od kežual kombinacija sa patikama do elegantnijih kombinacija sa cipelama na potpeticu. Ja sam se poigrala i uklopila ženstveni šešir i čarape na tufne sa biker jaknom i čizmama u grunge stilu.

Grunge, yet feminine. The little black dress is definitely an important item in every girl's wardrobe. This dress is yet another phenomenal find in a second hand store. It's cut is very simple; it is a mixture of jersey and cotton, which makes it very comfortable and universal - from casual combinations with sneakers to elegant combinations with heels. I played with the combination a bit and added a feminine hat and polka-dot tights with a biker jacket and grunge-style boots.

Mundir

Stara železnička stanica u Beogradu. Dan naizmenično tmuran i sunčan. Odličan tim i, naravno, dobro raspoloženje. Ovog puta sam pozirala pred objektivom Zorana Sekulića, takođe člana organizacije Ufotkavanje, o kojoj sam pisala u prethodnom postu. Pokazao je neverovatno umeće i domišljatost. Ovom prilikom bih mu se zahvalila na prelepim fotografijama. Nadam se da se i vama dopadaju!

The old train station in Belgrade. The weather was alternating between grey clouds and sunshine. The team was excellent, and normally, so was the mood. This time I posed before the lens of Zoran Sekulić, who is also a member of the Ufotkavanje organisation, about whom I've written in a previous post. He showed incredible ability and resourcefulness. I'd like to use this opportunity to thank him for gorgeous photographs. I hope you will also like it!

Elegantno, ali udobno. Da li moraju jedno drugo da isključuju? Ne bih se složila, a sada ću vam i dokazati. Za ovaj post odabrala elegantnu odevnu kombinaciju u kojoj bih mogla da provedem ceo dan. Haljine od žerseja možda nisu najbolji odabir tokom leta. Međutim, tokom hladnijeg vremena mogu biti veoma praktične. Ne gužvaju se i prilično su udobne. U haljini ovakvog kroja imaćete osećaj kao da ste u spavaćici. Koloritom i stilom se odlično uklopio mundir kaput. Samo ću reći - ljubav na prvi pogled. Posle dve godine i dalje predstavlja jedan od omiljenih komada iz mog garderobera. Odabrala sam i par čizmica do članaka, sa malom, ali stabilnom štiklom. Upotpunila sam detaljima poput neobičnih steampunk naočara sa pokretnim zatamljenim staklima i vintage kožnom tašnom.

Elegant, but comfortable - does it have to be mutually exclusive? I would not agree, and now I'm going to prove it to you. For this post I chose an elegant outfit in which I am able to spend an entire day. Jersey dresses are perhaps not the best pick during the summer, but during the colder weather they can be very practical. They don't wrinkle and are very comfortable. In a dress with this type of cut it feels almost as if you are in a sleeping dress. A mundir coat was an excellent fit by colour and style. I'll just say this: love at the first sight. After two years, it is still a favourite piece in my wardrobe. I also picked a pair of tall boots with a short but stable heel. I completed the outfit with details such as a pair of unusual steampunk glasses with movable darkened glasses and a vintage purse.
