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.
