Okay, one more fashion report at midnight, young designers, round two! ;) On Saturday, we had chance to see models from Marta Miljanic, she showed us her collection "Revolution of Desire". The second in row was Jovana Markovic, she found her inspiration in jockeys, horses and fashion from forties. Leather, studs, spines, perfect moment for these details on clothes! We really like it! And at the end, sweet Aleksandra Pecic showed her romantic collection "La Dame a la Lacrone" , inspired by medieval handwork, tapestries she used cotton velvet, silk shantung and tapestry fabric to express her thoughts.
Huge thanks to Aleksandra for giving me such a great place!

p.s. stay tuned, the next post will be really special! ;)

I’ve Got This: Ponchos

Alternately titled: Pretending with Giants

So this isn’t really a poncho; it’s more like a sweater pretending to be a poncho pretending to be a cape.  And wearing it allows me to pretend to be on trend:


I layered the sweater (BCBG) over a short knit dress (Nordstrom) which in turn was layered over a long-sleeve tee (Gap), leggings (INC via Macy’s) and wedge booties (Nine West “Peekaboo” via Piperlime).

I like to shop.  Nay, I love to shop.  Mostly thrifting, but I’ve been known to tear through Nordstrom like mad as well (that darned Anniversary Sale gets me every time).  But, even I can admit that while I may love to shop, I don’t need to shop.  My closet(s) are pretty well stocked and I often even have on trend items on hand without shopping.   Like this sweater, for example:


I have had this sweater for years and while it’s not exactly a poncho, its close enough for me not to feel like I have to go out and buy an actual poncho just to be on trend.  Which is why I’m linking up over at 260 Days, No Repeats for “I’ve Got This” Week.  Although it can be very tempting to shop when you see new trends in stores and magazines, it’s not always necessary to shop to be on trend.  Sometimes just looking in your closet will allow you to say “I’ve got this” about a trend.


How about you all?  Do look for on trend items in your closets every season or do you just give into the lure of your favorite retailer?

Happy Monday, Everyone!

P.S. You all know that I love me some Sal from Already Pretty, right?  Well, this weekend she gave me even more reason to love her (not that it was needed) when she showcased Fashion for Giants in a Recommended Reading post.  Needless to say, I am ridiculously flattered and just want to say thank you again to Sal.  So, thank you, Sal!!!

After my midnight fashion report where i showed you a new collection from Ines Jankovic, we are continuing today with other great designers.... Right after the Amazon Attitude collection we had opportunity to enjoy the work of another young designer Mihailo Anusic with his brand Mihano Momosa, where he left all the girls speechless with his very first collection . Layers of the finest fabrics, lace, feathers and perfect details ... I think i have a new fashion crush!
Ana Sekularac showed us her spring/summer 2012 collection in white, nude, blue and turquoise colors, she is already well known designer , accepted in the world and these models you can find in the top places for shopping as it is Harrods! I began struggling with the lights at this show, so i couldn't make more photos, and the same problem has followed me on the last one at Tamara Radivojevic show, where she showed her Absolut Style collection for this season. Inspired by women from Helmut Newton's photography she used leather, wool, silk in black, brown and purple-gray shade to show those intriguing women in their real lives. And i love it! Check the video and pay attention, you will see the perfect coats, jackets and blazers.

Last night my blogger girls and I, had chance to enjoy in some really great fashion shows, and this was the first. Ines Jankovic, young designer from Serbia, with her Amazon Attitude collection for this autumn/winter season. She was inspired by Amazon forests and modern women who is ready to take challenges in "urban jungle", armed with her own beauty. She was also inspired with the seventies and so called "dandy" style. Should i say something more? I like this collection so much, pleated skirts, great wool coats, leather, fur and perfect hats as a must have for this winter! Dont hesitate to check her previous collection on  Facebook page, and for all information check her website. Remember this name, she has a lot of to show us in the future!
Huge thanks to Ines for giving me the front row tickets and this honored seat position where i snapped all the photos and recorded a great video! Hope you will like it!

p.s. tomorrow, i will post the other shows that happened last night, so be here! ;)
                                                                                               

Super Casual Girl

First, and foremost, I’d like to apologize to the bactrian camels of the world – just because you have two humps doesn’t mean I wanted to offend you yesterday either.

Second, I’m basically dressed like an off-duty super hero today:



Like Super Girl in her casual duds.  Super Casual Girl, if you will.  But, hey, it’s Friday, I’ve had a rough week at work and all I could muster up is essentially jeans and a tee.  But at least they’re brightly colored jeans, right?  I paired my red skinny jeans (Old Navy Rockstar) with a striped, blue-gray tunic (Caslon via Nordstrom) and brown boots (Target).

Third, I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.  We have plans to attend a harvest festival at a local winery but I may just read and sleep all weekend as that sounds infinitely better to me at this moment.  Maybe Zumba tomorrow morning will perk me up though; either that or make me angry – it’s still a toss-up at this point with that class.  So, yeah, I have no idea what I’m doing this weekend.  But, whatever you’re doing, I hope it’s fabulous.

Happy Friday, Everyone!
