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!
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! 🙂
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!

I love military collars! Such clean-cut lines work especially well with a more quirky patterned skirt to soften the blow.
Also, these “telephone wire” scrunchies are really practical – they look cute as bracelets and you always have something to tie your hair with.

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.
With spring officially in town, and summer just around the corner, the city is full of colorful people and styles. Stopping by any H&M store will definitely supply you with accessories flamboyant enough to join a circus. We couldn’t resist taking a few photos 🙂
gem collars, flamboyant earrings, flower headbands, glitter shoes, skull necklaces, and peacock headpieces…..
