Heart buttons.

Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick. 
(Gwyneth Paltrow)

There is no definition of beauty, but when you can see someone's spirit coming through, something unexplainable, that's beautiful to me.

Chanel imperij.

Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel se je rodila leta 1883, čeprav je sama rada poudarila, da se je rodila leta 1893.

Bila je znana po vztrajnosti, abicioznosti in neverjetni energiji. Če bi odprli svojo omaro, bi v njej brez dvoma našli vsaj en kos, kateri je sledil njeni modni viziji. S svojim unikatnim podpisom pod tradicionalnimi Chanel kostimi in majhnimi črnimi oblekicami je ustvarila brezčasni design.

Njena pariška vizija je ustvarila “manj je več” modno pravilo (poleg številnih drugih). Bila je prva modna oblikovalka, ki je moška oblačila preobrazila v ženske nosljive obleke in dame razbremenila trdih korzetov in s tem ustvarila modernizem v modi. Ko je v dvajsetih letih preteklega stoletja ponudila svojo najbolj prepoznavno dišavo Chanel No.5 (saj je 5 njena najljubša številka), je postala senzacija. “Parfum je neviden, nepozaben, pika na i v modi in napoveduje tvoj prihod in podaljšuje tvoj odhod.”, je Coco razložila.

Svoj prvi butik je odprla v letu 1910 na pariškem Rue Cambon, kjer je sprva prodajala klobuke. Ko je nekega hladnega dne moško spodnjo majico (iz jersey-a) preoblikovala v oblekico, pa je zaslovela. Kreirala je tudi drese ruskih balerin.
”The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud.”, Je Coco Chanel razglasila. In se je tega tudi držala.
Po njeni smrti je leta 1982 postal kreativni direktor modne hiše Chanel Karl Lagerfeld.

A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.
Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.
In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different. (Coco Chanel)

Sixties: Glory decade.

There has never been a decade quite like the sixties. "Buster browns" shoes, box dresses, conservative looks (think Jackie Onassis), Brigitte Bardot, Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Soda Pop came in glass bottles, Woodstock, Andy Warhol, flower children, Breakfast at Tiffany's, and last but not least Lesley Hornby.

Lesley Lawson (Hornby), widely known by the nickname Twiggy.
Even though her success was controversial at the time, she remains not only a fashion touchstone, but has also, managed to stay relevant and productive for decades.
1967 was the year of the vulnerable, unvarnished, and most astonishing of all: the impossibly young face of Twiggy.
in the swingin’ 60s as a model icon and revolutionized the fashion world

She revolutionized fashion world with her boyishly cropped hair, faint spray of freckles and huge, wide-open eyes. In the decades to come, Twiggy went on to become a singer, an actress (both stage and screen) and a television personality.
Women dressed in a very feminine fashion. Dainty accessories, perfectly placed hairdos and classic silhouettes ruled. In 1963 first came the deeply plunging necklines introduced in Paris spring collections. Pale lipsticks and nail polish replaced the vivid shades. Youth continued to set the pace for fashion. Enter 1966, where the look was much more sleek and modern. The lines were sharper and more form-fitting. The belt did not define the waist anymore, instead it created a new “fit and flare” attitude.

Gorgeous baby blue.

A timeless classic maxi skirt should have a place in every woman's wardrobe. It can be embellished & accessorized in any way, in your own style so you can make your fashion statement. The best thing is that ican be made from any kind of material.

I can hardly sit still. I am amazed by this lovely model Anela who is wearing my latest piece (Dunja.). She pulled off such a perfect combination and I am so grateful for this collaboration. I chose a white cotton lining which I enriched with a light baby blue fabric. I added gray-blue ribbon as the final conclusion of this piece. 
This lady added strength and energy to the skirt. I admire her as a person and her fashion journey which has been carved over the years. Check out her fashion page.

My life is like a box of crayons that color my world.

Everywhere I turn, I'm seeing tartan prints.
I'm mostly not in the mood when it comes to patterns but I love this tartan shirt. The weather is so kind, I can hear the leaves rocking on the trees and everything that surrounds you is the sun.

Thank you my dear friend Nina for the pictures.
