Mix and match

What is your opinion about mixing and matching different styles in one outfit? I’m totally in for mix and match experiments and I have two styles that I’m particularly fond of mixing . I love pairing girly floating dresses with heavy masculine boots. As a perfect example I would wear Suno floral midi dress on the top of the turtleneck, add Roberto Cavalli shearling coat and bold  Alexander McQueen ankle boots. If you give me the right bucket bag, I would be probably be able to turn the world upside down in this outfit!

Another favourite mix and match style is wearing feminine cocktail cami dresses and leather biker jackets. Though I’m sure that those two items were created to co-exist in perfect harmony.

I would definitely pick colour blocking  as it is fashion God’s gift to all of us. I’m always super excited to see bright colour combinations on the streets. So, what is the best trend in your point of view?

Today’s inspiration. Dovima

Dorothy Virginia Margaret Juba who is also known as Dorothy Horan was one of the most prominent model during 50’s. Best known as Dovima, she captivated hearts and minds of the best designers and photographers of that decade. She had it all: grace, beauty, elegance, aristocratic posture and BEAUTY…have I already mentioned it?? As  Richard Avedon once said that Dovima was “the most remarkable and unconventional beauty of her time” and I can’t agree more. She was one of the high-paid (if not the highest) models in 50’s and was admired by millions. Dovima ended her career in 1962 at the age of 35 years as she didn’t want “didn’t want to wait until the camera turned cruel.”
