Lady Luck's Gigi Lime Green Orchid Hair Flower

Handsome smile, wearing handsome shoes,
Too young to say, though I swear he knew,
And I hear him singing while he sits there in his chair,
While these autumn leaves float around everywhere.
Paolo Nutini

Hello sweethearts!

Stepping slowly into the winter, I am grateful for the warm and sunny autumn that we had these year. These photos are taken a few weeks ago, on a beautiful fall day...

As a fan of novelty prints and dressing by the occasion, I had my eye on this Voodoo Vixen dress for a long time. Then, while I was in the UK I found it on a streets of Brighton for 15 pounds! It had a broken zip but I couldn't miss that bargain so I took her home, fix it and decide to give her my eternal love and care.

Adorable black cats with umbrellas on vibrant green provide a delightful contrast with yellow leaves and autumn colors. Black umbrella and Lady Luck's Gigi Lime Green Orchid hair flower are the perfect accessories for colder days, when you want to look stylish and fun.

Dress is part of the 2014. collection, in the meantime VV released it in blue and red version. My favorite feature of the dress is the black scallop trim on the neckline, cuffs and the pockets. And we are talking about huge pockets! I wear size M (UK 12) in VV range so this  dress fits great, except in the sleeves. Hem is so narrow that I had to make a slit so I could bend my arm.

Like the other Lady Luck's flowers, Gigi Lime Green Orchid hair flower is also very light and provided with a firm hairpin which ensures that the hair flower lays nice along the head.This vibrant color head piece makes a great statement peace. As for the shoes, they are nice but not very comfortable ;)

Mid Century meets Mermaid

Hello sweethearts!

As much as I love to dress up, my favorite style is that everyday vintage 1940's and 1950's look. Since colder weather is upon us I very much enjoy my new baby blue saddle shoes and comfortable but warm clothes. My absolute favorite piece this fall is Miss Fortune Bobbie Jumper ♥

I'm sure you recognize this popular sweater as you have certainly seen it in various colors like aqua blue, Kingfisher blue, mustard, peach and others. Great news is that this fall it comes in three new colorways: Harvest, Pink lemonade and Mermaid. Miss Fortune makes incredible combinations of colors every season!

The Bobbie jumper is perfect for the sweater girl look! I love how it ends just above my hips so it goes great on high waisted skirts, jeans or trousers. Purple, blue and pink diamond design on Green Bay background gives endless possibilities of styling. My favorites are jeans, my pink swing trousers and I'm planing to buy a purple or green A- line skirt.

The knit itself is a 100% acrylic but quite thick. Also, there is lots of stretch to this sweater so if you are inbetween sizes decide by your own preference, depending on if you like it more narrower or wider look. I am wearing a size M and it is super comfortable.

As I mentioned in a previous post, Miss Fortune provides high quality construction and fit so don't worry if you over-stretch your jumper- different colours are all woven into it and not just printed which makes it extra durable.

Autumn Carrie

Hello sweethearts!

Winter in Croatia is just around the corner as we entered November brrrrrr
My brain screams "tartaaaaaan" but my closet is quite poor with warm winter clothes. I'm always so attracted by colorful summer clothes that in winter I wear all of my summer dresses below layers
 and layers of sweaters and cardigans. But winter dress don't need not be boring and dark!
If you love bright and fun dresses like I do, Miss Fortune has a perfect frock for us this season!

Made in the UK, Miss Fortune made a makeover of their gorgeous Carrie dress. This season it comes in red & grey and black & blue colourway with a lush lurex thread running though beautiful tartan fabric.

First, I must say I adore this fabric! It is amazingly soft and light but warm, perfect for autumn. White and black tartan fabric provides a slight stretch and highlights a sparkly turquoise Lurex thread.

Matching turquoise neck band and little shoulder straps aid the fit and instant sass! The neckline isn’t too low so it  keeps some for the imagination but exposed shoulders give this dress a dose of romance and sex appeal.

Purchasing Miss Fortune pieces expect high quality construction and fit. I wear size M and Miss Fortune Carrie fits me perfectly but if you are inbetween sizes,  be safe to size down due to stretch in fabric.

I paired my blue Carrie dress with a blue and black accessories. I love to wear berets so I had to buy a thread and make myself a matching one, especially for this dress. I painted my white shoes that stood in the closet in blue (not very successfully, have to work on that hahaha) to balance the whole style.
