Stop Staring!


Even it's still so cold outside and this winter doesn't have plan to leave us I do enjoy in wearing and collecting colourful dresses. I can't wait for spring.

Today I want to show you my beautiful Gardenia dress by Stop Staring!

Stop Staring! is by far one of my favorite repro brands. The reason is simple, they make best vintage inspired dresses and you must admit that this brand has an unique name, you just can't forget it.

This dress is just so elegant and beautiful. Two things that I like the most about this dress are heart shape necklane and wonderful print. 

I would like also to thank Kasteel van Brasschaat for having us and opportunity to shoot here.

I m wearing:
Dress: Gardenia dress by Stop Staring!
Shoes: Vivienne Westwood for Melissa

Colourful winter


It's almost the end of January and I m writing my first post in 2017. Shame on me! This winter is so not inspirational and it is so cold to pose outside. I also took small break from photoshoots and did some projects behind the camera, which in some cases I like even more.

This pink coat I bought two years ago, and I love it so much but some reason (don't ask me why) I never wore it that often.
When I received this dress I knew that I want to pare it with this pink coat. I think it's a lovely combination.

The dress I m wearing is a Ruby Vintage Divinity Swing Dress by Black Butterfly Clothing and you can find it now on sale!

Flower dresses are not something I tend to wear during the winter but sometimes we need a pop of color to break these grey and cold winter days.

This dress is made from pure cotton and it's so comfy. It also has a beautiful heart neckline and cap sleeves. 
I only had a small problem with the size, as you can maybe see, it's a little bit too big on my waist, but that's easy to adjust. However I really love this dress and it will be great choice for some spring and summer days.

Christmas just like the one i used to know

Ho, ho, ho

It's Christmas time! Oh how much I like this part of the year. I can't even concentrate on the writing because the smell of my cherry pie is seducing me. All house smells on delicious food and Christmas mood is here.

Presents are wrapped and waiting under the Christmas tree, we just need to be patient.

What makes a perfect vintage Christmas? A lovely tree, vintage decorations and the right outfit. Right before Christmas we were invited by our great friend Luc who has the loveliest tree you can imagine. Not just the tree but all the decorations are so “swell”: mushrooms, a red Corvette and even Elvis is hanging in the tree. No Christmas without the gifts and the best one I got is this beautiful red dress. Thank you Milan! All I can hope now is to have a white Christmas… if I will not have it in Belgium hopefully I will have it in my hometown of Banja Luka where I will celebrate the Orthodox Christmas.
Wish you all a Merry Christmas!

Party like a Gatsby


This Saturday we had a great "Modern times- Party like a Gatsby"party in Antwerpen. The party was hosted in one of the most beautiful venues in town, De Roma. So I used the opportunity to take some photos there.

I just adore 20's and all that charm and beauty it brings. However I must say that all about the roaring 20's is somehow neglected. In every town you can find some swing party with music of 40s or 50's, every shop has dress inspired by years 40's-50's but you can rarely find great 20s events.

When I was sure that I will attend this event, I knew that I want to wear Gatsbylady dress. In my opinion they have the biggest range of 20's dresses.

I wore Francesca vintage inspired flapper dress in black silver color. This soft noir glamourous flapper dress has a sparkling hand-embellished design. I was admiring this precisely sewed bidings.The Francesca dress features V-neck in front but also in the back, it has scallop hemline and it is sleevlees as you can see.

This dress is made from two layers. First layer is made from black soft strech which is overlayed with black sheer tulle with all this beautiful beadings.

Here I also have a Charleston  black headband which fits perfectly the flapper girl look of that decade.

Colors of Trinidad


Today I m here with another post from Cuba. 

This time I m taking you in one wonderful town which is after Havana my favorite town on Cuba. It's Trinidad. 

If you saw any advertisment about Cuba I m sure that you saw at least one image from Trinidad. It's just not posibble to travel to Cuba and not to add Trinidad to your bucket list. 
This town exudes with courtesy and positive energy. Even you can see a lot of tourists here, local people are so nice and friendly, they will give you nice words and smiles without asking anything in return what is different compared to Havana.

This is the place where you need to take an extra pair of batteries for your camera. You just can't stop taking photos, every detail about this town is so special and wonderful. But I think that even the best camera can't capture this beatiful colors. This town stole my heart. 

In Trinidad I wore another Very Cherry dress. This time was Revers dress in Black. This dress is just adorable. The thing about this dress that I like is that this dress is elegant but also comfy everyday dress.  This dress also have really beautiful details like buttons in the front and cute little pockets.
