Moscow Cap

"Kad god bih prolazio Pozorišnom ulicom, gotovo svagda sam pred vratima malog dućana, podignutog uz jednu staru drvenu kuću, viđao čoveka koji mi je izgledao kao da nije za to mesto, da je suvišan u toj uzanoj, mračnoj pukotini grada, pokrivenoj prugom prašnjavog neba." - Maksim Gorki

***

Od svih čari koje mi je šetnja Balkanskom ulicom oduvek pružala, razgledanje malih zanatskih radnji bih svrstala u omiljene. Ova očaravajuća crvena moskovljanka kupljena je baš tu - u staroj šeširdžinici u Balkanskoj ulici. Uz nju su mi savršeno pristajale crvene naočare. Naočare kolorisanih stakala predstavljaju mi pravo otkrovenje. Uz njih, čak i oni najsumorniji dani mogu biti obojeni toplim bojama. Leopard print je sam po sebi upečatljiv. Kako bih na njega stavila akcenat, za ostatak odevne kombinacije sam odabrala mirnije komade. Veliko hvala Tijani Mihajlović (mardy__bum__) na predivnim fotografijama.

Of all the things that I love about Balkanska street (Belgrade, Serbia), looking at the displays of all the craftsman shops is by far a favorite. This delightful red hat was bought right there - in an old hat shop in Balkanska street. I paired it perfectly with red glasses. Brightly colored glasses are a recent discovery. With them, even the most gloomy days can be painted in vibrant and warm colors. Leopard print is on its own very impressive. To make it stand out, I used clothes that are less striking.  I'd like to thank my lovely Tijana Mihajlović (mardy__bum__) for the beautiful photographs.

Casablanca

Na samom početku rađanja moje ljubavi prema kinematografiji pojavila romantična drama Kazablanka. Kada bi se čovečja ličnost gradila poput kuće, mojoj ličnosti bi ovaj film predstavljao kamen temeljac. Nakon toliko godina i dalje je smatram vrhuncom kinematografije, kao i standard po kom i dalje razvijam sopstvenu estetiku. A tu su i fotografije koje to dokazuju, za koje je zaslužena moja draga prijateljica i talentovani fotograf Tijana Mihajlović (mardy__bum__). Romantična haljina, par crvenih salonki i bunda od nutrije pokazali su se kao pravi spoj. Nadam se da ćete se složiti sa mnom!

At the very beginnings of my love for cinematography there I was introduced to a fantastic drama called Casablanca. If human personalities were built as houses, that film would be the cornerstone of my personality. After so many years I still consider it a masterpiece and a standard to which I develop my own aesthetic. Here is a collection of photos to how it, credit for which goes to my dear friend and talented photographer Tijana Mihajlović (mardy__bum__). Romantic dress, a pair of red pumps and nutria coat turned out to be quite a combination. I hope you'll agree with me!

Lady of the Lake

Boje jeseni inspirišu, zrače lepotom, hrane dušu i podstiču na stvaranje. Kažu da je petak 13. baksuzan dan, ali jedan baš takav petak je bio darovit i pružio nam je sve lepote jeseni. Prava bi bila šteta ne ovekovečiti ga fotoaparatom. Ovoga puta ne bih pisala o modi, jer ove fotografije slave umetnost i lepote prirode. Za fotografije bih se zahvalila svojoj talentovanoj i dragoj prijateljici Tijani Mihajlović (mardy__bum__).

The colors of the autumn are inspiring, radiating beauty, feeding the soul and encouraging creation. They say that Friday the 13th is a bad luck day, but just such a Friday was a real gift and gave us all the beauty of the fall. It would be a real shame not to immortalize it with a camera. This time I will not write about fashion because these photos celebrate the art and beauty of nature. I would like to thank my talented and dear friend Tijana Mihajlović (mardy__bum) for the superb photos.

Thai Kaftan

Današnju objavu sam posvetila ovoj predivnoj tajlandskoj maxi haljini. U svom garderoberu već imam komada u ovom stilu, poreklom iz Afrike i Azije. Ne prestajem da budem opčinjena njima. Prepoznatljive su po jarkim bojama, upečatljivim dezenima, maxi dužini i takozvanom kaftan kroju. Spoj koji čini haljine poput ove monumentalnim.  

Today's post is dedicated to the goreous Thailand maxi dress. I already have several pieces in this style that have originated from Africa and Asia in my wardrobe. I can't stop being enchanted by them. They are recognizable by their strong colours, striking patterns, maxi length and the so-called kaftan cut. It is the combination of these qualities that makes these dresses monumental.

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.
