Atomic Rebel by Mare Milin



Hello Darlings...


I had the opportunity to collaborate with one of the best Croatian fashion photographer miss Mare Milin. So I am presenting you all pics from Story Book Magazine. Topic was about rockabilly lifestyle...so I had to present my favourite lifestyle combination...I am eclectic pin up girl and that means that I am into many vintage styles. 










I am wearing leather jacket, cardigan, my vintage kintwear and shirt, gift from my "pin up" friend and colleague miss Tamara Kamikaze, bangles are my favourite, I got them from lovely burlesque dancer Missy Malone, shoes are by Pleaser, purse is from Banned, accessories by Glitter Paradise.

Hair by dear friend Maja Ukrasni Kutak and classic pin up muah by me :)

Redhead and apples

Hello Darlings...

Finally new style post...I am sooo busy these days so had to make a break for social networks. Got new job, start new education, still miss my travel around China...but despite obligations modeling is always active so I did amazing pics with amazing young bosnian photographer and lady Amra Topic in sunny botanical garden, located in main Zagreb core.




I am wearing light green Dagny jungle dress by Daisy Dapper, vintage brand with which I regularly collaborate.

I really like african, oriental and tiki print and details combined and crafted with pin up and vintage style. As a true historian I am fascinated by foreign (multi)cultures so that must be true reason
according to my fashion aesthetics.
We used my very good hair day and sunny time to create cool pics...hope those will inspire you.
So for that post I am wearing Daisy Dapper dress with always
affordable H&M leather jacket, my red open toe heels, vintage plastic basked and cat eye glasses.
MUAH by me :)
Hairband is custom made by RockRockabilly brand by my dear Jessika Hill.

Powder dress, black accessories

Hello Darlings. Recently I did an amazing photosession with the Russian retro/repro brand Ginger Jackie. Actually my first work and collaboration with a retro Russian brand. I am extremely satisfied with that collaboration and photos because Sara Bertic did amazing work as photographer. 

The star of today's post is the viscose powder dress with short kimono sleeves and front draping. I have to mention that the powder dress is custom made for my measurements. Quality is just exquisite, the processing sophisticated and their high-quality materials give preference to natural fabrics. 




Ginger Jackie is a small designer brand of clothing formed in 2010 and based in Moscow. Some of the items are handcrafted and made without copies. Items are made in limited editions and you can mix and match them perfectly together. Their style is highly inspired by 50s style clothing, the most memorable and feminine style of the past century, with archival research conducted to study the costumes of that era and apply vintage, elegant patterns and design methods.



Ginger Jackie brand combines elements of vintage cuts with modern materials and relevant forms and fashion trends. The founder of the brand and chief designer is the young and kind lady Ekaterina Blinova. I combined the dress with an elegant, black Sourpuss purse from Rockabilly Rules shop

At the moment that is my favourite purse, which I love to combine with various pieces, from classic to edgy. Black fetish shoes, which I find perfect for this elegant dress are from Pleaser. 
Vintage chiffon scarf, crocheted glowes, cat eye glasses and umbrella with frills by Hrvatski Kisobrani are here to complete this sophisticated combination. Check out Ginger Jackie brand and order your favourite dress. Hope I inspired you to some new combinations.

Baby Blue in Paris

Hello Darlings,


I was away for a while, but back again with new posts, styles and collabs.

Today I am presenting one of my favourite brands Secrets in Lace. I recently wrote review about them, so this post will be just small style post. I got my baby blue/red satin plunge bra (that bra stayle is not padded) and satin retro full panty, and I absolutely adore their style and quality. Retro lingerie will always be my first choice. 

Gold glitter shoes are by amazing brand Pin Up Couture and fascinator is from www.howcool.com.

So...hope you like photos from lovely hotel Tulip Opera, Paris.

La Parisienne

Hello Darlings...

Finally I got all my pics from amazing photo session for 100% retro - chich French brand VON 50's
This brand has been created to reach three goals: let women reclaim their femininity and curves, rediscover quality, and offer all of us a maximum of self-confidence. The 1950’s represent the lead of French Haute-Couture worldwide with Dior, Chanel, Jacques Fath, Pierre Balmain, Madame Grès, Nina Ricci, Hubert de Givenchy, Pierre Cardin … 
Sophistication, Elegance and Quality are motivations for their creations.



     me wearing La Parisienne dress, location: Opera House




I am still so excited about that photo session and it was a wonderful experience! I was chosen to be the "face" of their brand, and in all aspects working and modeling for them was even more than professional. I spent five beautiful days in one of the most beautiful cities in the world - Paris. VON 50 is Paris, so I think there is no better place that can represent this brand. Lately, I've often thought how nice it would be to visit Paris, which has recently been the main destination of my dreams. You know what they say about wishes, be careful what you wish for...I wasn't careful, I was just lucky and awarded. 







By profession I am a historian so the trip to Paris was an extremely valuable and joyous experience. After two days of shooting, for 8am to 8pm, exploring the historic Paris was special treat for me. It was a truly exciting time to be in Paris. I visited all the amazing locations that had planned on visiting, and was really lucky the hotel where I was located in was in the heart of city, close to Opera House (Golden Tulip). I went to Galleries Lafayette, kinky Pigalle Street, saw the Eiffel tower by night, Moulin Rouge, spent some quality time with the Notre Dame Gargoyles, visited the Opera House...and enjoyed many not so known but no less beautiful places and streets in Paris. 

View for my window...early morning.







I spent almost 7 hours in Louvre and I just can't describe the feeling and energy that I felt when I walked beside all these historically and socially important works of art, from which the energy of strong people who created them still seems to almost radiate.

























Exploring Louvre, Galerie d'Apollon, ancient Egypt, Napoleon's apartments and many many more...




Mona Lisa and stupid selfie

























On the streets of Paris I have seen H&M and Chanel, vintage and modern fashions walking down the streets of Paris and all coexisting together. I saw scarves, polka dot skirts, denim, red lipstick and smokey eyes all being worn according to a person’s own taste and twist which makes it interesting but never vulgar. People are so relaxed and really charming; the Parisian charm is not just a myth! Of course I tried the French cuisine: cheeses, pastis, and wine and enjoyed their bistros and a few clubs near Opera.








Notre Dame 









































 Finally...I have met them.




















Pigalle




I enjoyed relaxed walks by the Seine, where many Parisians, regardless of age and status, like to chill, drink wine and eat classic French snacks after a busy day. Mix of all that awakened an inner romantic hedonist in me and I was really doleful when I had to go back to Zagreb, but in January we'll start a new modeling project for VON 50's, but I'm still not sure if main location will be Paris again or ...maybe Monaco. You will see! It will be France! 


VIDEO from photoset for VON50's:








With all that I've met a wonderful lady and wise business woman, Emilie Bellan-Payrault, main owner of VON'50's and creative and professional photographer/director Cyril Manzini. We were a great team and all in all we had great time! Oh, yes I must not forget shy Lulu, the Siamese cat, our rent-a-cat star and Mr. Gold Fish. First part of photosession was studio and second was editorial at four wonderfull and classic locations, Opera House, Colonnes de Buren, Theatre de Comedie and Place Vendome (Ritz).









 VON 50's did collaboration with Woody Ellen, so all clutchs, bags and purses are by Wood Ellen. Shoes are by ASOS.
