Red Bow Shirt

This shirt is made of Cotton Sateen...it is wonderfully smooth,soft,durable and easy to care fabric.
I know that Cotton Sateen is normally used for bed sheets, but I think it is also perfect for warm winter shirts. 
I wear this shirt in combination with 40's style denim pants

40's Style Denim Slacks

Wide legged pants in 40's style based on Bell Bottoms pattern from the newest Burda Magazine 10/2011. I ignored pockets and front fastening with zip from original pattern and I added the side fastening with buttons.

Leather jacket is vintage bought in London's Second hand shop at Portobello Road.
The blouse is new, made by me

Denim Skirt and Dotted Top

This is the same outfit I presented in my last post. Here is it with more details.

Top was actually a dress made with one of my favorite dress patterns but I cut the dress last week..I didn't feel well in that dress. Top is a much better option.

Skirt is made of dark blue denim. I took as a basis slim skirt pattern with slanting pockets but I closed pocket openings with buttons. Closure is on the back with zipper and 1 button. I used red thread for top stitching.

In His Lap

Me and my darling, we used the last day of Indian summer to visit Zagreb..take a walk through the City center and Upper town, drink coffee with some pretty girls and eat "cevapcici" with dear friend.
I was in the city two years ago.We visit Zagreb's shopping mole every few months but we rarely go to city center. 
A lot of times I regret that I do not live in Zagreb...museums,theaters,concerts everything is close at hand. The truth is that we need only an hour drive to Zagreb, but unfortunately the price of all this is too high for frequent repetition. That is why we enjoy the small things.

Nice gentleman in whose lap I was sitting is Antun Gustav Matoš Croatian poet, writer, journalist past away long time ago but his monument is still luring tired walkers to sit next to him and enjoy the peace and quietness of this place.

 I'm wearing my new denim skirt and old/new dotted top (it was a dress before)
