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!

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…

Lace SheIn Dress & Purple OTK Boots

Dress SheIn (size M), bag SheIn, boots Ebay These boots may be one of the best purchases I’ve made in a long time. I know that at first they may not appear like an item that you will wear much, but they go so perfectly with most dresses and skirts, but are also thin enough that you may wear then under pants. It’s such a perfect statement piece and it will make any outfit pop. I love the purple especially but I’m also looking to purchase a beige/tan pair, and pink and …. 😊 Even the material is not very sensitive to dirt which I thought it would be. This is an old outfit I wore in late spring this year but never got to post it on the blog, so I decided to do it today. I think this outfit would also be great for a New Years party. Why always go for sparkle on New Years? Instead, make a statement with hot boots and beautiful, feminine dress.
Ciao!

Bouclé Red Teddy Coat

OTK boots (similar), sweatshirt/dress H&M, coat Koton, handbag Zara (same bag Ebay & similar)
Hello darlings, here I am again after a 3 month absence. If you follow me on my Instagram account, you know I have a good excuse. I’m 4 months pregnant and just got over my first trimester. Those of you who have been pregnant know how tiring the first trimester can be. On top of that, I’m expecting twins, two girls!!!! So I guess I can say I was double tired hehehehe. I still owe you more outfits & posts from Italy and Serbia from last fall, but before I go back to that, let me share a few outfits which are more appropriate for the current winter/spring weather. I shot both this outfit and the one I will share with you in the next post during my first month of pregnancy before the exhaustion kicked in, but I never got to post them on the blog. Today is all about this teddy red coat. The brand is Koton and it was only $80. It is really soft and cozy and I’ve gotten a lot of complim…

Two Outfits in Milan

1st outfit: dress H&M, boots Ebay, jacket Zara 2nd outfit: jeans Topshop, boots Primadonna Collection, shirt Bershka, coat unknown
If you have been following me for some time, you know that last year I took 6 months off and one of the things I did during that time is take a road trip through Italy. First stop was Venice and you can read more about it in this post as well as here. Third stop on the trip (yes I know I skipped the second, but we’ll return to it another day) was Milan. Since I was a little girl, Milan was a place I really wanted to visit. I had such high expectations; partially due to it being one of fashion capitals, partially due to the beautiful Duomo of Milano, and because it was on my bucket list since I was a kid. I don’t quite know why, it just always was. Well, needless to say Duomo di Milano is absolutely stunning and a must see when visiting this big city. Walking the roof of the cathedral will leave you breathless. Just imagining how many man hours were spen…
