C&A Spring 2015 collection

Hello! With everything going on in my life lately, I didn't really find the time to blog. A couple of weeks ago, something frivolous like buying a foundation that is a little darker for my skin tone would have been enough to upset me a little, but in light of a recent tragic event, I have realized that getting upset over things that aren't worth getting upset about is ridiculous.
The greatest blessing in life is family and you should treasure the moments you spend together with your loved ones because everything could change in the blink of an eye.
Before we all get teary-eyed, I want to share these pictures I took at the C&A Spring 2015 collection launch event. I like how the collection has a very relaxed mood and there were many items that I would see myself wearing at a music festival or a picnic this spring. 
I especially loved the flower arrangements at the event. My grandmother had a soft spot for flowers too. I hope you are surrounded by flowers up there, grandma.

Parka coat

Hello! I know it's been while, but I have been super busy looking for a wedding dress and planning an office party. So, I am very excited to announce that I have said yes to the dress. I was very lucky that it only took me 1 week and a half to find "the dress". After the first couple of days of trying on many dresses I thought that I was going to end up wearing a white sheet with a belt around the waist on my wedding day. That's how discouraged I felt in the begging. All of the dresses that were displayed in the bridal shops were either too shiny or had too much going on. Bows, rhinestones, ruffles, cleavage, volume, so much volume! Does everyone want to look like Cinderella? All I wanted was a beautiful dress that was simple, yet impressive. Mission accomplished! 

A piece of advice for future brides. Be prepared to look around a lot and have nervous breakdowns. The key is to not lose hope and know that the perfect dress for you is out there somewhere. It's a lot like dating if you think about it. You have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find your prince.

Serbia

Hi! I was reading this article on CNN the other day and realized that I didn't share the pictures I took this summer while traveling to Serbia with you yet. You know what they say. Better late than never. I stayed in Belgrade, the capital city of Serbia and the largest city in this country and I was very impressed with what this city has to offer. There are many ways for a tourist to enjoy his stay in Belgrade like visiting the Church of Saint Sava, the Nikola Tesla museum, the Victor/ Pobednik monument located in the Belgrade fortress, the museum of Yugoslav history and when you are done visiting these points of interest you can relax by talking a stroll in the Kalemegdan park or in the charming downtown. 
Enjoy the pictures!

Resolutions

Hi! These are the last days of the year and now is the time when everyone thinks about their previous new year's resolutions and see where they stand at the end of the year. My resolution for this year was to act more, postpone less. I believe I was able to accomplish this and I am proud of it. We've had a new, wonderful addition to our family, Yuki. I invested more time in my hobbies, discovered new cultures and traveled to some beautiful places.
I feel like there is still plenty of room for improvement though, so I will be sharing my new resolutions at the beginning of 2015.
Now, a little story behind my outfit. I bought these knee-high boots last week during a 70-80 % off sale. I paid less than 17 euros for these beauties. Lucky me!!! I also found this shawl at a Christmas market that day. I just love the gorgeous floral pattern in traditional Russian style.

SOFTPOP by Traskin

Last Wednesday I was invited to the Spring-Summer 2015 collection launch of the talented, fresh brand called Traskin.
This year, the young designers behind Traskin, Alina Dragomir and Ana Spiridon, have presented a mainly inspired street-wear collection fused with high-fashion. 
Here is what they had to say about their SOFTPOP collection:
"Our SS 15 collection is called SOFTPOP and it's a mix of styles such as Sport-Chic and Classic.
This fusion of styles is achieved through pattern study, transparency and pattern play.
The look is primary sport, but the fabrics used like cloth and cotton are more suited to a classic style.
The color pallet is black and white with bright pops of color. The varsity jacket, the biker jacket, the classic man shirt and the sweatshirt were the statement pieces that provided a useful starting point to building this collection."

 The collection was amazing so congratulations are in order for Alina Dragomir and Ana Spiridon.
