Sea Waste jewelry summer LOOKBOOK

Two days ago we launched on Facebook a Sea Waste jewelry summer LOOKBOOK that was shot by photographer Goran Matijašec on a beautiful Croatian island Brač. Model is my dear friend Anita Dujić, a famous Croatian model and I couldn't wish for a better model to represent my jewelry. Isn't she just stunning? Seem like Sea Waste jewelry  will be must have this summer. ;) 

 Many thanks to Goran, Anita and my dear family and friends that are helping me in so many ways.

p.s. Here's a short interview with me on, Croatian most popular fashion site.

The reason that I wasn't so active on my blog lately is so many things that are going on at the same time. One of them is a theatre play Šarengrad (Sarengrad) directed by Renata Carola Gatica and choreographer Natalija Manojlović. Nina Jukić, my band mate from ChocoJazz and I edited music for the play, which was an awesome experience that happened out of the blue. We used some of our songs (Hladan Stan, Zašto te nema, AngelSheep, Uzet ću te i odvesti) because director Renata loved them very much and asked to incorporate them into play. 

It was a great honour to participate in process like that and to actually perform and share stage with five great actresses: Ivana Krizmanić, Saša Naumov, Ivana Pavlović, Marija Tadić and Romina Vitasović. 
The play tells story about 7 women from little town Šarengrad in Croatia, early nineties, the start of the war, lack of man, soap operas, has a little bit of everything, singing, dancing, drama, tears, laugh, highly atmospheric play with lot's of little details and moments. 

We have two more shows before summer brake, one tonight and one on Thursday but we will be performing again in the fall. For more info click here, and come and watch us if you're in town! :) 
Thank you Šarengrad gals for so much fun we had during these past months and special thanks to director Renata Carola Gatica for giving us such a great opportunity! <3

Hasta pronto, Barcelona!

...while getting ready for my second visit to beautiful and beloved Barcelona this July I'm thinking of last summer and how we met for the first time last September. I can't wait for July to come and to walk my feet around those narrow and colorful streets again and explore hundreds of cool and creative shops with unique designs. Barcelona has one of the most creative scenes according to fashion and textile designs so while in town I'll try to make some contacts with local designers and take as much photos as I can of Barcelona street style. So long...L-ove*

those magical waves

waves in abudhabi

Blue Wave (Acoustic Jug Band Remix) by West Indian Girl

| new wave |

choppy choppy choppy

Pray that your loneliness may spur you into finding something to live for, great enough to die for

hold on to the thread
the currents will shift
guide me towards you
know something's left
and we're all allowed to dream
of the next time we touch...

you don't have to stray
two oceans away
waves roll in my thoughts
hold tight the ring...
the sea will rise...
please stand by the shore...

i will be...
i will be...
    there once more... 
[pearl jam oceans]

all photos are from Flickr, please click on photos for more infos.

I'm already dreaming of hot summer, long beaches and diving into magical blue waves....aren't you?

I got dots

"I got stripes, stripes around my shoulder..." sings Johnny Cash in his very famous song, but today instead of stripes I got dots around my shoulders. I'm a huge fan of various patterns and I like to wear them a lot. Here is a little something about polka dot, famous pattern that became one of the classics. 

Polka dot term was first used in 19th century in Britain, some say around 1866. The pattern is named after the dance of the same name that was the latest craze of that period. In an effort to cash the fad, manufacturers began naming all sorts of things polka. Polka gauze, polka hats, polka curtain bands and many other products. Of all these terms only polka dot survived until today. 
There are two possible origins of the word polka. Polka dance originally comes from Bohemia and polka either can come from the Czech word pulka, which is half step, or a combination of two dances polonaise and mazurka. According to the dictionary of Etymology the word polka literally means Polish woman.

Traditionally polka dots were used in the clothing of flamenco dancers and performers. Nowadays many products that we use in everyday life, from clothing to dishes, use polka dot pattern and many famous designers almost every season incorporate polka dot pattern into their creations.

Today I wore to work a vintage polka dot shirt that, my favorite item for this spring and I pared it with skinny jeans and white converse. Live long polka dot! :)
