the Van Gogh acquaintance

Just a few days ago I visited the famous Musee d’ Orsay in Paris which is in possession of the  famous self portrait of the post-Impressionist painter Van Gogh. On our way home we have to pass by a little restaurant on the corner of the street and today I just couldn’t stop staring at this guy cuz he looked amazingly like Van Gogh. He was quite nice and even agreed to pose with his right ear covered! 😉

What a coincidence, right?

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.

a Parisian stroll

I moved to Paris for the next two months and I have been so overwhelmed with everything around me that I couldn’t decide what to write about. You would think that Paris would automatically be inspirational for a fashion blog, but it kind of had the opposite effect-too much of a good thing! 🙂

Well, now I’ve settled in and am really enjoying this truly magnificent city! I must say that the women here are exceptionally beautiful, classy and well-dressed- inspiration from all sides! And there is always something fun to do. If you happen to have a free sunny afternoon here is a suggestion what to do….

You should start at the omnipresent Eiffel Tower and walk down the park. Do not miss an opportunity to take a spin on the carrousel. It is so much fun! (do look outside coz you will get sick, honestly this thing is faster than you think ;))

Cross the Seine and take a walk on the other side. There are nice benches to take a rest and appreciate the scenery.

Then cross Pont Neuf  and marvel at the Notre Dame cathedral.

Voila, a perfect sunny afternoon!

Bags Bags Bags

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!

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!
