Back To The Future

We are jumping back to the 40s with today’s midi length dress and pleats. I love pleated skirts but they are often hard to pull off on me considering I don’t have accentuated waist, aka boyish body shape. I love this dress which I found on Ebay but was not sure if it would fit me right. I do have to wear it with a thinner belt to keep my waist synched in, but also because it gives the dress a more finished look. I love how feminine it looks. And of course, my favourite Manolos are there to give it some colour too. I actually got several elderly men in their 70s and 80s tell me I look nice the day I wore this dress. Maybe it brings back some memories to their youth. (I did not get any perv vibes, I don’t think hehehe). Quite a bit of a contrast from last week’s biker boots looks, don’t you think? Do you like it? Thank you for your all of your lovely comments on the blog but also on Facebook, Chicisimo and Chictopia accounts. Ciao!

Danas letimo unazad u 40te godine sa danasljom midi haljinom. Volim haljine sa ovakvim naborima ali su one za mene teske za nositi s obzirom da nemam izrazen struk. Haljinu sam kupila na Ebay-u pa nisam bila sigurna da li ce mi stajati dok je nisam dobila. Ja je moram nositi sa kaisem da bi mi struk dosao do izrazaja ali takodje sto daje ovoj kombinaciji dovrsen izgled. Volim kako zenstveno deluje ova haljina. Drastna razlika od outfita iz prosle sedmice sa motornim cizmama, zar ne? Da li se vama dopada? Hvala svima na lepim komentarima na blogu, ali takodje i na Facebook stranici, kao i na profilima Chicisimo I Chictopia. Cao!

Seeing Stripes


Dress Forever 21, necklace Target, heels Forever 21, bag H&S Handbags, bracelet Joe Fresh

Hope everyone had a great weekend and you are ready for a new week to start.
This week I am continuing with a fall styles themed week, and this time it is mid century skirts/dresses. To be exact skirts and dresses that represent 40's, 50's and 60's, from midi lengths, pencil skirts, mod style and so on. These decades were more than prominent on the fall season runways. Of course all looks are translated into today's fashion. Stay tuned to see what I had in mind. Let's start with the 60's and the Mod movement. 
Today was a special day for me. I had the privilege of being a godmother of a gorgeous little princess Viktoria. For this special event I wore this mod style dress from Forever 21. I'm realizing now that I have an obsession with stripes. So much so, that a few days ago I came home with two identical shirts but from two different stores. I also brought home total of 5 out of 10 items in stripes. I chose to pair this dress with aqua/sea-foam green pumps also from Forever 21 (available in store only in Canada). Usually people opt to pair it with red but I loved this combination, especially considering a beautiful sunny day we had. What print are you obsessed with? Ciao!
PS.Don't forget to follow me on Facebook, Instagaram and Bloglovin.

Nadam se da ste sve imale divan vikend i da ste spremne za jos jednu radnu sedmicu.
Ove sedmice nastavljam sa temom jesenjih trendova, a ovoga puta su to suknje/haljine iz sredine 20og veka. Tacnije receno is doba 40tih, 50tih i 60tih, od midi suknji, mod stila i tako dalje. Modne piste su bile preplavljene ovim modelima za 2013 jesen/zimu. Pratite me ove sedmice da vidite sta sam pripremila. Pa da zepocnemo sa 60tim i Mod pokretom. 
Za mene je danas bio veoma poseban dan. Imala sam cast da budem kuma na krstenju jedne male prelepe princeze Viktorije. Za ovu posebnu priliku sam obukla ovu haljinu u mod stilu iz Forever 21. Pocinjem da shvatam da imam opsesiju sa prugama. Do te mere da sam se pre nekoliko dana vratila kuci iz kupovine sa dve identicne majice, samo iz razlicitih prodavnica. Takodje od 10 kupljenih komada, 5 su bile sa prugama. Uparila sam haljinu sa akva zelenim salonkama takodje iz Forever 21. Obicno prva reakcija je da se upari crno/belo sa crvenim detaljima, ali meni se ova kombinacija jako dopala, pogotovo s obzirom na topao i suncan dan kakav smo imali. Koji print je vasa opsesija? Ciao!

On The Dark Side

I’m leaving you this week with a casual and a bit darker outfit than usual. Perfect for a cool day and with a flat boot, great for running errands. Just add a spacious leather bag to fit all of your essentials and get going. And of course, spice it up a bit with some red lipstick. I’m back next week with another fall theme. Stay tuned! Ciao!
Poslednji outfit ove sedmice je takodje casual ali i malo tamniji nego obicno. Savrsen za hladnjikav dan, a uz ravne cizme, odlican za trcanje po gradu i zavrsavanje obaveza. Dodajte samo vecu koznu tasnu sa puno prostora koja vam omogucava da nosite sve svoje neophodne sitnice i spremne ste. I naravno, malo crvenog karmina nikad nije na odmet. Vidimo se sledece sedmice sa novom jesenjskom temom. Cao!

Battling The Wind

Shorts H&M, top Dynamite, scarf Zara, clutch unknown Ebay, boots Aldo, ring The Bay, bracelets Aldo, watch Michael Kors, jacket Le Chateau
 
Another casual outfit which can transition from summer to fall by adding boots, a scarf and of course a leather jacket. You're probably already getting sick of mine since it has been in all posts this week. But I just couldn't wait to wear it again. The season for light jackets such as leather is not very long here in Canada. We go from summer to winter in a very short time, so I'm enjoying it as much as I can :). I bought this scarf in Zara in Belgrade. I saw it here in the stores but they only had it in gray. I've never been much for sculls but I really love it on this scarf. Sculls with some spike bracelets and tough boots,  give an edge to an otherwise simple outfit. I'm really sorry for my hair though. The day these pictures were taken it was so windy that after a while I just gave up the battle. Do you like this look? Ciao!
 
Jos jedan kazual outfit za prelazni period leta ka jeseni. Verovatno vam je moja kozna jakna vec dosadila obzirom da je ove sedmice bila u svakom postu, ali moram da iskoristim priliku dok mogu. U ovom delu Kanade jesen kada se moze nositi kozna jakna ili bilo koja laksa varijanta ne traje dugo; mi prelazimo pravo iz leta u zimu, sa vrlo kratkom ali lepom jeseni. Tako da moram da uzivam dok mogu :). Maramu ili esarpu sam uzela u Zari u Beogradu. Na zalost ovde kod nas ova marama postoji samo u sivoj boji. Inace nisam ljubitelj kosturskih glava ali u ovoj kombinaciji mi se dopada. Marama, narukvice, cizme; svi ovi mali detalji daju mnogo zanimljiviji izgled inace vrlo jednostavnoj odevnoj kombinaciji. Unapred izvinite zbog moje kose, ali borbu protiv vetra koji je duvao kao lud tog dana, sam izgubila vrlo brzo :). Kako vam se dopada ova kombinacija? Cao!

A Little Bit Of Sexy

 
Dress Urban Behavior, jacket Le Chateau, scarf Zara, boots Aldo, rings Ebay, clutch Rabiosa

Hello ladies! Today I thought I would do an outfit which is a bit more sexy. I wore this old mini dress which I bought primarily for its colour and then also for its mesh back. I love the contrast of the green against black and white. If I wore it with heels it would be just a tad too sexy, but again the boots give it a more casual vibe. I would wear this to go out with friends too. I prefer this more subdued look. I don’t like clothes that SCREAM sexy. I believe sexiness comes from within, from you being comfortable with yourself and how you look. If your style is not to wear heels a lot and you feel you must wear them to go out to look sexy, I’m going to tell you don’t do it! You most likely will walk funny in them and might have to sit the night out or take them off completely. You will definitely look more confident and sexy wearing flats but walking in them like a pro. What do you think? Ciao!

Cao devojke! Danas sam priredila outfit koji je malo vise seksi od prethodnih ove sedmice. Obukla sam ovu staru zelenu haljinu koju sam kupila prvenstveno zbog boje a onda I zbog prozirnih ledja. Svidjam mi se kontrast zelene, crne i bele. Da sam je obukla sa stiklama delovala bi malo previse sexy ali cizme ovu kombinaciju cine malo vise kasual. Ja bih ovo nosila i za izlazak sa drugaricama. Svidja mi se malo neznija varijanta. Ne volim odecu koja vristi sexy. Po mom misljenju seksipilnost zraci iz nas, onda kada smo zadovoljni sobom i svojim izgledom. Ako vas licni stil nije da nosite stikle, pa zasto bi se forsirale da to radite samo kada izlazite jer mislite da vas to cini privlacnijima. Ako se neugodno osecate u stiklama, verovanto ce te hodati nestabilno, a mozda cete morati i da presedite celo vece ili da se izujete. Sigurno biste izgledale mnogo sigurnije u sebe i seksipilnije u ravnim cipelama ili cizmama u kojima mozete komotno da se krecete. Sta vi mislite o tome? Ciao!
