Piece Of Art


 Sweater one of a kind (gift), leggings Forever 21, boots and beanie Urban Planet, bag Ebay.

I don’t get to spend a lot of weekends at home or when I do, there is usually a lot of things to catch up on so they usually fly by running around. But this weekend was one of those rare ones where I get to sleep in and do what I choose, or not do anything at all. Well usually on those days I go very casual. This weekend I chose to wear this sweater my grandmother bought for me few years ago. Now I know this will not be to everyone’s liking as it is not your modern sweater. This is actually piece of art, a one of a kind. Some of you may know (if you follow my blog) that I am of Serbian background (as in Novak Djokovic) not Siberia (trust me, people get confused more than you would think). This sweater is a traditional art work done on sweaters, linens, etc from the region in Western Serbia where my family is from. Each piece is one of a kind and is hand made of real wool. Amazing quality and warmth. As I said, to me this is like a piece of art therefore I keep everything else very simple so it would not compete.
Some of you may agree that with everything good that came with the Internet, loss of borders between nations, and so on, some of that uniqueness and tradition that every culture has, is getting lost. We all start to look the same quite a bit. And don’t get me wrong, there is a lot of good in it. But I love the richness in art, fashion, food that comes from all of the world's different countries. This for me is tradition done 21st century way. Your thoughts? Ciao!

Drage dame nadam se da ste uspele da se odmorite ovog vienda i napunite baterije za novu sedmicu. Ja napokon jesam! Vikend sam provela u casual varijanti i obukla ovaj divni dzemper, poklon od moje bake. Predpostavljam da vecina vas s Balkana prepoznaje da je ovo tradicionalni rucni rad iz zapadne Srbije, odakle potice moja familija. Znam da ovaj dzemper nece biti po svacijem ukusu ali ja ga licno obozavam jer je unikatan za danasnje trziste, gde svi nosimo uglavnom istu odecu. A naravno lepo je i videti tradiciju koju svaka drazava i region sveta imaju, a koji na zalost postepeno gube na vaznosti. Razlike u kulturama i tadicijama, itd ne sluze da nas razdvajaju vec da obogacuju sve sfere nasih zivota, od mode, hrane, umetnosti, itd. Da li se slazete? Cao!

Joining The 30s Club! Yikes!

Shoes Gucci, Skirt Mendocino, corset Ebay, necklace DIY, clutch gift old, belt Asos, (sold out, similar here), ring and earrings street buy Madrid Well today is my big birthday. I am turning 30! All I have to say is OMG! I know that sounds more like a teenager talking, but I am somewhat speechless. Partially because I don’t feel mature enough for it. Maybe I have this vision that in your thirties you are more serious when it comes to everything including what you wear. Or maybe I am having midlife crisis at 30. Is that possible? I’m kidding of course. It does feel a bit weird but I feel great. Everyone tells me that your thirties are your best years. I guess we will wait and see. I am posting tonight one last outfit from Spain. I obviously can’t shoot the pictures tonight of my birthday outfit, put it on my computer, edit and post and all of this while making it to dinner on time J. So I will post today’s outfit tomorrow and I am leaving you with this, what I think, stunning outfit. As…

Sightseeing Montreal In Hot Pink Sneakers & Ripped Jeans

Jeans & jacket Zara, sneakers Nike, shirt H&M, bag Steve Madden, sunglasses unknown, belt Danier (men's section), chain ring Forever 21, midi ring H&M, forefinger gold rings gifts Day one in Montreal was the cocktail party and then walking the streets of old Montreal at night and testing out different patios and bars. Day two in Montreal, was again walking the beautiful streets of old Montreal and testing out patios, but now in daylight, hehehe. Oh and lets not forget, blog picture taking. I forget how beautiful this city is and am reminded every time I come back. Then, I wonder why I don't come back more often. It is gorgeous, vibrant and people are extremely warm. It has such a European flare, which I often miss, and this is a quick way for me to get that fix once in a while, without having to fly over an ocean. These pictures were snapped around St Denis street as well as around Catherdral Notre-Dame Basilica of Montréal. I was comfortable in my new Nikes for the…

What to do When Travelling Western Serbia (& my Outfits)

If you read my lastpost, you know I had been travelling Western Serbia and as promised, I’m sharing few more photos and things to do here. This region doesn’t have big cities and is best known for it’s nature. Besides visiting Drvengrad, here are few more things you can do here:
1.About a 10-minute walk from Drvengrad which you saw in the last post, you can find one of the oldest moveable railway museums in Europe. You can hope aboard a vintage train from the early 1920s and ride in it through one of the most beautiful region of this country. You will love the experience of being on the train but the scenery will leave you speechless and at peace. Train runs twice a day so make sure to check the schedule first. They even offer logging so you can stay in one of their apartments. There are 3 stray dogs here but they are so docile and welcome you as you come in. Consider them to be your hosts :) Ciro Rail Station Museum
2.Second activity you can do here, and I’m sure you will enjoy thoro…

Traveling Western Serbia & Finding Peace, Quiet & Beauty

Jeans Topshop, slides H&M, bag Louis Vuitton, lipstick Mac All Fired Up
Hello lovelies! It’s been a long time since I wrote anything on the blog. It’s been crazy busy time for me for many reasons. If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I’ve been in Eastern Europe, more precisely in Serbia for the last couple of weeks. Here’s a brief rundown. Last year has been one of the business periods of my life and I’ve been under quite a bit of stress. Due to some personal reasons which unfortunately I cannot share here, I’ve had to take some time off. I will be here in Europe over the next few months so I’m very excited about this trip. It was very hard for me to make this decision. Like most of us, taking such a huge step can cause some fear and anxiousness. But what’s that saying? Life begins on the other side of fear, right? Hopefully you will continue following me on this new journey. So first thing I wanted to do when I landed here was go to Western Serbia. There were a few reaso…
