Japan Street Style

With the fashion weeks ending one can not help but notice how artificial the street fashion outside the shows is. Back in the day I was naive enough to believe that everything was done spontaneously, that the walking commercials of some people do not really pass by Tommy Ton for ten times to get shot but hey .. that is the fashion world today. Nothing I can do about it except turning my attention to the street style sites that feature people who wear outfits that are "out there" for their own thrill. Even when I can not possibly imagine myself wearing some of those I really enjoy and appreciate the effort that the average person puts into creating such looks. I am talking about the Japanese street fashion, of course. In this selection of looks I left out the extreme subculture ones and decided to post some of my personal favorites, although some of them are up to three years old  I still find them interesting, nevertheless.

Fall layers

Fall is my favorite season to dress for but with it's unpredictable weather it can be the trickiest one as well. This is where the practical advantages of layering come in handy. The ability to add or shed bits of clothing and still look put together is a modern survival skill. 21st century layering doesn't really care for the rules your mother taught you. Your skirt should not be longer than your coat , your shirt should not hang out under your jacket... Forget all that. Do whatever you feel comfortable in.

P.S Huge thanks to my friend Nikola for these photos. This location was not planned at all. We went for coffee first, started shooting at one place and somehow ended here.

Life through instagram

In only one year of my instagram existence I grew completely addicted to it , even to the point that if I had to choose only one social platform to exist on it would be an easy choice ( I use exist because we all know that one does not exist if one does not have internet presence of any sort). My instagram account is private which is probably not the best choice if you are a fashion blogger . I find the fact that everyone can see all your photos more disturbing than the small number of followers. It is a real pity that you can not set privacy settings for every upload separately cause that would make it just perfect. Anyway,  here are  some of the photos that I do not mind sharing with everyone.  I barely managed to sort more than 100 photos I have posted there in these 3 collages ( while trying to do it thematically).

         I mostly instagram my travels since I am a huge travel junkie :

Inspired by Japan

I have always been fascinated with Japanese culture. Two years ago my best friend started working for Japanese embassy so I was lucky enough to learn even more about it through the events they organize. Beside being masters of design Japanese people can be very proud of their cinematography. I fell in love with their anime movies especially. This little editorial was inspired by  5 Centimeters Per Second . If you never watched this kind of  movies this weekend could be a great opportunity to cuddle up with your boyfriend (or cat) and do so . All of  Hayao Miyazaki movies are not to be misses as well. Do a marathon! I promise you'll cry no matter how tough you are. If you happen to be in Sarajevo any time from Sept 12 - Oct 14 you are all invited to Japanese Culture Month, more details here.

Having Asian looking eyes finally payed off :D I really enjoyed creating this make up look since I love make up even more than fashion ( lipstick is a DIY version of this Lime Crime one and wig is from e-bay)  More photos of this look will be posted soon on my Tumblr where ,in the meantime, you can find some of the outfit photos from my previous blog since many of you are here for the first time and some asked to see what I did before (do take into consideration that some outfits are up to 3 years old ) :D
P.S Huge thank to Vladan for taking and editing the photos (the cherry blossom ones are from Google image base) .

Walk a little taller

Two hours after I published my first post I grabbed my suitcase and went on a 10day vacation. I tried to avoid internet altogether and if it wasn't for my ever-growing addiction to instagram I would have been able to do so. That is the reason why I am late with publishing some of your comments. Thank you all for your feedback, even to the bloggers who took the time to trash me as if I wrote something no one knew about. I guess it is just one of those things everyone sees but feels uncomfortable to address or some people really live in a bubble ? I fully support everyone's right to run their blog any way they want. Even some people who are very close to me have different views and aims when it comes to blogging and I respect that but it will not stop me from writing whatever the fuck I want here. Every blog has it's audience and I just wanted to make a cut when it comes to mine. I am not sure to what extent is that possible but I hope my future posts/work will do the job better than the talking. 

I took these photos before I went on my trip and got around to posting them just now.  I have been loving crop tops way before they became a trend ( I just did not call them that way ) I used to chop off  some of my tops because I always loved wearing high-waisted jeans/skirts (thinking that they make me look  taller ) and tucking tops in would only create unwanted bumps around the waistline. The base of this outfit is as simple as it gets so I added this oversized mesh shirt as a bit of cover up and a talking piece. When I picked it up at a flea market I did not really have a clear idea how to use something so tacky ( if you think of late 80ties mens mesh shirts ) but there was something about it that did not let me leave it there.
P.S Do not mistake my hair color for an ombre ( I got over that three years ago when I had it) I am in a process of getting the color I want (have in my mind actually ) so it will probably be different in every post until I get there.
