Dancing raindrops.

I can hear and see the raindrops dancing on my window.
I love it when it rains, so I have a reason to squeeze under a blanket and spend the day with a good range of films and junk food without any bad conscience. I still have a photo of me and my sister when we were kids in our new pelerines, just waiting for rain. Of course, we were wearing them inside on a sunny day, when we first got them. And nothing could convince us otherwise. The memories of my childhood are a little blurry but I will never forget our movie nights and our dad taking us watching every movie you can imagine.
I adore movies with a deeper meaning, not just love clichés, but something unexpected, something that shock you in the end. I have never been afraid of horror movies, even when I was a kid. Actually, I have always prefered scary movies, rather than some cheesy comedy or love story. 

So.. I made a list of movies (I could go on and on.. but I had to select just a few), for which I know are worth of your time. I have watched all of these movies so many times and every one of them is brilliant.

The best colour in the whole world is the one that looks good on you. (Coco Chanel)

Salut mes amis!

I can not believe that this summer passed so unrealistically quickly. I am amazed by this year's trends for autumn/winter, that is the one thing I look forward to during the cold days which will not be avoidable. I'm dying to see one of my favorite style icons, the fabulous Miroslava Duma handling new trends. She loves nothing more than making a statement with a necklace and vintage Chanel. I love how she puts herself together, she could not look more amazing from head to toe.

Opportunities.

I believe everyone deserves a chance. If you get a vision for the future, when a unique opportunity is offered (when for the first time you feel, you can really succeed at something you have always wanted to), a dream of what your life could one day stand for, that will run your entire heart, open your mind up to the awesome power of your creative imagination. Live them every single day. Be patient! A great dream usually takes many years to blossom. And if you work hard for your dream to become true, in the end you always cross the finish line. During our darkest moments we must focus to see the light.
There will always be obstacles on your way to achievement and fulfillment. I admitit is easier to travel this long journey if you have somebody who does not let you give up. I could not be more grateful to those who stand by me through tough and good times. 
So always remember: Where there's a will, there's a way.   (Pauline Kael)

Spontaneous sunday.


Sunday is a perfect day to do absolutely nothing. Take advantage of a sunny day and spontaneously drive far away to unknown place, somewhere you've never been before.
Bring a blanket, snacks, some good music and you're good to go.
I always have the best time when I'm spontaneous. Last winter we drove with my boyfriend to Ig, walked deep into the woods and found a small cottage. Making snow angels in the freezing snow wasn't one of my best ideas, but that was the best cold day in year 2012. 
I can only dream about winter nowThis year, summer it's so damn hot, I can not handle it anymore.
Today you can find me barricaded in my air-conditioned living room with popsicle in my hand, staring at 3 hour movie.  

I hope you are somewhere where lovely breeze is blowing.

Fabulous 7.

It took my breath away when I saw the trends for fall/winter 13/14. My winter wardrobe is full of black and white, which is the biggest trend this year. I love that this year you can also find a bit of grunge style (seen at Vivienne Westwood, Emilio Pucci, Rodarte and Saint Laurent), for those who have a fraction darker side. Unexpected, but I miss my rocker years when Nirvana was the first thing I wanted to hear in the morning. So this trend takes me back.
However, I also love that navy is the new black (Wear it head-to-toe, as seen at Céline and Chloé), leather trend and healthy dose of red. Silhouettes speak to traditional tailored jackets (Stella McCartney, Vivienne Westwood and Ralph Lauren) and allow prints and patterns to take center stage. I like youthful prints (Saint Laurent, Burberry Prorsum, Lanvin and Givenchy) classical elegance, clean lines, ruffles and lace.

This year it was so hard to choose my fabulous 7 designers, but after a long list, I finally decided. And here they are!

Elie Saab
                   
Emilio Pucci

Alexander McQueen


Moschino


Saint Laurent

Valentino


Zac Posen

Inspiration: Key to freedom.

Inspiration is everywhere. Whether it is Martha Graham, 50's, Alexander McQueen, John Rawlings or some amazing artists who poured their heart and soul into their work, who I couldn't admire more, I always pass a small fraction of their souls into mine.
If you had a time machine, would you rather go into the future or back in to the past?
In my opinion, if you spend all of your today thinking of tomorrow or yesterday, you have wasted the present moment. I often wonder, how my life would be if I was born in different period of time.
In one of my dreams I'm in Paris in 1920. I would be honored if  I could just learn from Coco. Her work is engraved in each designer, she is still inspiration for crossing the line in some new direction.
Everything happens for a reason. Every day has its own meaning.
In the blink of an eye, something happens by chance, when you least expect it and takes you into a future you never imagined. 
(Nicholas Sparks)

The big journey.

Life is only traveled once. >Today's moment becomes tomorrow's memory.< I regret nothing in my life, even though it has been full of ups and downs. Mistakes are always forgivable, if you have the courage to admit them. Like Audrey Hepburn, I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I always learn from my and others mistakes, so when something is going horribly wrong I always do something good with it. Regardless of what happens you only live once, so you should take advantage of every moment life gives you. 
Since I remember I've lived for fashion, music and dance. I was collecting fashion magazines with amazing ladies on the covers and through the years I developed obsession with designers and their work. Everything in my life has passed so fast and at last I'm happy where I am now. I finally got the courage and make my dreams come true. I opened a boutique with women's clothing in the center of my birth town Ljubljana. Soon I started creating my own pieces and the best feeling in the world is when I see happy, pretty ladies wearing it! When I sold my first piece I was prouder than ever. I was jumping  all the time from one direction to another and now I'm finally happy after this long journey. And the best part is that it's not even over.

So welcome to my world of pretty bows, pastel colours, vintage photography, timeless elegance and flowers everywhere.
