Yesterday I found my grandma’s collection of bags from the 60′ and 70’s. Let me tell you my grandma had style, and each bag came with matching shoes and gloves (which sadly don’t fit me). For last night I chose the white bag to match my white skirt! In the next few posts, I’ll try to show the other bags as well!
On Sunday I visited the most famous and biggest flea market in Zagreb, called Hrelić. It is a lot of fun since it is very lively and you can buy literally anything- from books, pots, bikes to clothes and accessories. The only two things you need are change and the patience to rummage through piles of stuff. I bought this colorful skirt and a cool vintage watch that I paired up with more modern items such as the white sneakers and a denim shirt.
Last week Zagreb hosted the annual Animafest, which is a competition film festival for animated movies. I had a chance to see this amazing animated movie called Approved for Adoption by Jung who retells the story of his Korean origins and the adoption into a Belgian family, and I strongly recommend that you see it. I cried like a baby. You can watch the trailer here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QTz4nWpL5DI
That day I wore comfortable baggy pants, paired with even more comfortable wedges. The cardigan was made by my grandma! 🙂
Recently I visited the Archeological Museum in Zagreb and you may wonder how this is related to fashion but it just goes to show how recyclable fashion really is. We saw jewellery pieces predominantly from the Iron Age, so thousands of years ago, and yet striking similarities in fashion can be noticed.

Today I felt like wearing something reminiscent of my grandma’s years, such as an elegant shirt and high-waist pants with buttons on the sides. Add to it curly hair, vintage earrings and a digital vintage watch and you are ready for a blast from the past!
