find.. wash.. rewash.. freeze.. rip.. cut.. sew.. wear







'dress' - vintage skirt worn as a dress
blazer - flea market, altered (a lot)
belt - vintage
wedges - no name

i had something different planned for today's post
then i found this blazer i bought some time ago
..
poor thing was in horrible shape
when i found it
in nasty pile of one flea market stand 
..
it was wrinkled insanely 
a bit wet, 'cause it was raining
and had that smell of naphthalene mothballs 
..
so i washed it
twice
and then froze it overnight
(it does sound a bit crazy, but it works 
if your goal is to get rid of odd smell and mites..
and i'm allergic to dust mites)
and then i forgot all about it
..
found it this morning
and this amazing color forced me
into few hours of seam ripping
cutting and sewing
..
i guess teal can force me to do just about anything

excavation pants, take 2






top - self made
pants - self made
shoes - flea market

this pants supposed to be 
my new excavation 'uniform'
..
but they were too nice to be ruined in dirt
so, i decided to make a new pair
..
but.. i forgot that i should use fabric
with some stretch in it
so.. this is quite possibly 
the most uncomfortable pair of pants
in whole universe
..
but they deserve a post
after all
i spent hours making them

lived one fat lady
that owned one blue house dress

then one day
fat lady died
her family piled all of her clotes
(blue house dress included)
by the dumpster

gipsy lady walked by the dumpster
she took all of fat lady's clothes
and the next day tried to sell it on the flea market
..

..
and there it was

to tan or not to tan









dress - self made
shoes - no name
bag - no name

these pictures were taken
right after we got back from the black sea trip
that's why my tan looks this way
and i hate it
..
i hate tanning 
i happen to like my natural skin tone
that's why i spend all of my beach time
under the parasol
with insane amounts of sunscreen on me
but that somehow never works out

medusas







maxi dress - self made
hat - china town

i always loved jellyfishes 
(or medusas, as we call them here)
..
they look strange and beautiful 
and move so elegant
like dancing
..
now, let me tell you something about 
my relationship with living creatures
no matter if i like them or not
they hate me
i end up bitten or burned or hurt in some other way
almost every time
..
for example
once i woke up with almost 30 different bites 
on my legs and stomach
that wouldn't be so strange
happens to me all the time
but this very time
nikola was in that same bed
and woke up without a single bite
..
i always wanted to visit africa
if i ever menage to make that dream true
i would probably die of malaria within days
but.. back to jellyfishes
..
lovely summer day on the beach 
golden sand 
and lovely foaming waves
just a perfect day
..
then i felt
something burned my neck
and it started to hurt 
so i went out of water
(ok.. i screamed first
and cursed a lot)
..
then it got worse
my throat started swelling
breathing become harder
and my head felt really weird 
..
i ended up in er
got two shots 
and was fine within half hour
..
doctor was drinking beer
so i thought he is the right guy to ask
can i drink when i get out of er
yeah! he said, quite enthusiastic 
..
so i did
..
