a Room with a View

What I absolutely love about the apartment buildings in Paris are the long windows and narrow balconies. Although these balconies can’t be used from much-like having a cup of coffee-they are nevertheless a welcome addition to take a peak at the world down below you. This is the view from my balcony.

Feeling….Childish!

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! 🙂

Feeling…Retro!

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!

Military Collar

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.

Is it a man’s or woman’s 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.
