Barby loves / Jocey jacket

I love Scandinavian designers and the brand Gina Tricot is one of them. I stumbled across this lovely jacket few days ago and immediately loved it. It's a military inspired jacket that we've been seeing all around for some time now but with a different twist to it. I saw a lot of jackets like this but with leather sleeves and details, this one has a sheer and delicate material sleeves and also the back. Imagine a jacket like this with lace, that would be really nice too, don't you think?

You can find it at Gina Tricot.

Have a great Sunday! 

P.S. I have a nice surprise for you next week so definitely check back soon for more information.

First Blue Shoes on Pinterest

Photo by: Teen Vogue via Pinterest

I think almost everyone knows about Pinterest by now. I finally decided to join and create an account, because my folders on my computer are too packed. 

For those who don't know what Pinterest is: It's a great website where you can "pin" pictures you like and are inspirational for you and maybe for others as well. When you create your account you can follow people who you think post great inspirational pictures. You can also pin your own so the people who follow you can see yours as well.

It's like a big inspiration board! Another great thing about it is that if you click on the picture it takes you directly to the source. So it's great for bloggers to get noticed.

I got a lot of views on my blog because of my "DIY Clutch" that someone posted on Pinterest. 

I'm so happy to see that you liked my clutch :) Looking back at this post I don't find it that helpful, so I want to try and make another one but this time a video. Because I got a lot of questions about it. 

So if you want you can follow me on Pinterest also.

What do you think of Pinterest, do you use it?

Exhibition/Razstava Tekstilni nagovori

Every year the students of Textile and Fashion Design from Faculty of Natural Sciences and Engineering prepare an exhibition of their current work. In the past years it was all about different interpretations of one theme but this year it's all about personal interests of each student that combine into a very interesting story. It's a story about ending that it's necessary for a step forward.

"The exhibition is not only the story of the end of one road, but it's the beginning to many more, which we can follow in the future."

I truly admire their work and talent. I also like this concept of the story and I can't wait to see what they prepared.

The opening of the exhibition will be this Thursday 17.1. 2013 at 20.12 in KUD France Prešeren and will be open till 19.2. 2013

KUD France Prešeren, Karunova 14, Ljubljana
17. januar 2013 – 19. februar 2013
Otvoritev razstave bo v četrtek, 17. januarja 2013 ob 20.12

Trend "Stripes"

I've been seeing a lot of stripes around lately. There was a time when I hated black and white combination so this is very interesting that I really love it right now. I really have to get a dress or shirt with stripes. I like the idea of combining them with bright colors or a classic black.

What do you think of this trend, do you like it?

Outfit "New Year New Beginnings"

My first post this year and I'm starting it off with an outfit post. This weekend the weather decided to change to spring instead of winter. Just a week ago I was freezing and was bundled up in hats, scarfs and warm coats. I'm going to take advantage of the warm weather and wear my "spring" jackets because they say it's going to snow soon.

Jeans "Zara"/ Shirt "H&M"/ Jacket "Zara"/ Bag "Asos"/ Scarf "Primark"/ Bracelet "Cruciani"/ Shoes "Graceland"
