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.
One perk of this very “gender unspecified” fashion is that you can buy male clothes which are usually better material and lower prices. The Amancio Ortega clan (Zara, Bershka, Pull and Bear…) are definitely the stores to rummage through the male sections. The sizes of shirts and sweaters are pretty small and the clothes fit especially well if you are not built like an average girl (I’m for example quite tall).
So next time you go shopping check out what’s in store for men, for a change.
One advantage of owning a bike is not having to take public transportation, which always manages to annoy me (crowded, smelly and slow). But from time to time it is fun to take the tram cuz you can inadvertently observe people and their outfits.
Here are two to of such “observations”! The girl on the left I liked a lot, cuz she combined a retro polka-dot skirt with more modern accessories such as the white All Star sneakers or the plastic bag. The girl on the right…well…I don’t really get it.
