Going out on day in Belgrade

There will be few more posts coming:
All will be handling about going outs during the day, evening (as a preparation) for the night.

This time I will show you few other locations which are just an example of where you could go out:
One of them is the Skadarska Street, the other one is an 100year old tavern turned into a cafe/bar called Requiem.
Both of them are relatively near to each other with a little difference: Skadarska Street (also known as Skadarlija) is a pure touristic attraction. It is an old bohemian street, with an old flair and there is one cafe after another. You can eat and drink here (which I always do, once I reach Belgrade: it is something I miss in Germany).
Requiem is very small, practically not easy to be seen (I also found it accidentally!). It is modern, they have cocktails and alcohol as well as juices…Actually, everything a bar must have.

Here you can see how they look like – Requiem (Gundulicev Venac 39, 11000 Belgrade)

Middle age in Serbia

We went to the ethnic village in Sirogojno, near mountain Zlatibor.People there used to collect objects from very old families, which lived there for centuries, too, and so they put them into this huge museum.
Very authentic it is, it has two households (this usually had 2-3 houses with very few rooms, with fireplaces in the middle or corners; one silo, storage room and rooms for milk, cheese and kajmak production. Not to mention stables with diverse animals.

Among these two households you can also book a night in one of those houses! Sure, beds are modern there, yet the ambient is different. Since it is in the purest nature it is clean, air is breathable and it is silent. There is also a tavern there, serving some of the old food  and drink habits but also for a modern person something for everyone. You can also visit a museum there, which shows the habits and traditions of that area around Sirogojno; theres is shop with pots typical for that region and blankets as well as herbage.

Good food in Serbia

Here is another post about my travels and eating habits (as always, I must eat since I live for it).
This time I must and will talk about the restaurant in Belgrade called JEVREM.

Short about its name:
Jevrem Obrenovic was the youngest brother of Serbian count Milos Obrenovic, who is very famous and known for his reign as a Prince of Serbia. Under his rule, Serbia became an autonomous principality within the Ottoman Empire.

Jevrem restaurant can be found in the Street of Master Jevrem, near the Museum of Dositej and Vuk.

Now, to the ambient:
When you enter this location, you seem to be in Italy all of a sudden.  Stony floors, flowers, chairs and tables outside make a really good Mediterranean feeling. Inside it is a kind of a mixture between bohemian 20′ies and modern times.
Prices are excellent, service is perfect and friendly, and if you want to eat something you are not waiting too long till it is on your table. All in all: 10/10 points.

Make it blue!

I’m a big, old girl and I do not like pink; I like, love, adore blue!
Everything has to be blue; I even have a blue room in my flat.

Yet, the flat ain’t the subject now. It is the summer, great summer days Germany has in past few weeks. Lots of sun, warmth, and it calls for colors. Mine is blue today.I had blue flower in my hair, but I forgot to make a photo of it while it was still there…
All you need is: blue shoes, purse/bag, dress, hair&hand/arm accessories and not to make it totally odd, some other color, like green (in my case). Or white jacket, too.

Fashion for inbetween

These are older pictures, but I made them last summer in the fields with my friends. I had this honor to dress them myself (like big living dolls *g*) and I am pretty sure they liked it! Enjoy these two gorgeous ladies, twin sisters S. and M.

Summer

It is getting very warm here, which is quite unusual for Germany and German regions. It is either very cold or very hot.  And you can never tell how warm or cold it’s gonna be. This year it is pure evil for my PC and its gadgets. Mouse and keyboard are going crazy (wireless) and I cannot sit long time in front of the PC.

In this sense, what to wear?
It is very warm, the less the better. But how less? What is still good and when to stop making things shorter?

what to wear?

Colors and dresses and short hot pants are in this summer.

But I cannot wear short things to the work – it is not appropriate. Yet, long dresses, maxi dresses and skirts are welcome; as long as it looks good. It can be sporty, romantic, elegant… And appropriate. You do not have to look like a cheap woman just because it’s hot! Look sexy, confident and wear things no one else does. That will surely give you some attention by men.

Here is my deal for tomorrow, since they called it for a very hot hot hot day:

A dress, with proper white hat to it (against the Sun); skirt with blouse. All in white, to reflect the Sun back, to feel better in it in any possible way.

Here you can see details on it. Flowerish, colorful, all you need for the trends of this summer. Shoes? Yes, please something that fit to it. I have very elegant flip-flops with white flower on the top, which fit both of my choices above. Which is gonna be? I will decide that tomorrow.

Till then, enjoy the Sun as long as you can! Winter will come too soon!


Summer shoes

This is my choice for summer shoes this year. I am not a trendsetter, yet I prefer to look good (who doesn’t?!) and to wear stuff no one else does.
There is nothing I hate more but when everyone on the street looks same – as if there is only one store with clothes and one shop with shoes. No, thank you.

I tend to have my own style; call it a style. Many fashion freaks and designers might say: that is not a style, you are humiliating the whole fashion religion… Good, they noticed me then ;-) I buy what I like and tend to be aware of only one simple thing: whatever it is, it has to be comfortable! Shoes especially! Pure leather soles are important, no matter if high heel or not. I must feel like walking on the clouds.
Here is my choice of sporty/elegant shoes for this summer: gold, yellow, pastel turquoise and dark blue. You can combine so many things with these colors and still it won#t look so bad. Beware thou: make sure to have another accessory with you. It can be purse, bag, scarf or jewellery. Or even some small detail in your hair (which I prefer) when it gets very warm, the rest can be too much. Sweating won’t make you look sexy, even if you’re dressed up like a fashion queen.

These are my favorite at the moment; light, stay on the feet (where they belong while walking) and very comfortable. Leather sole, pastel mint green and makes your feet look gorgeous. This color fits great with many other pastel colors like: blue, dark blue (non pastel), violet and green, too, pink pastel and soft beige/brown.

Yellow and gold! Yellow ones I got years ago from my mother as a present; luckily we have exactly the same feet (well, I got her feet) so they fit mine so good. From Italy, sure that no one has them here in German. The gold ones were present from my stepmother, since I fell in love with this model and the way they fit the feet perfectly. I tried them on and they screamed my name. Colors you can wear: red, orange, gold shimmering tops and scarfs, blue and violet (non pastel this time).

Last but not least; going out for a dinner, ball or opera, theater (and sometimes a club) these can follow you wherever you want. Depends on what you combine with them, they will round your feet and make them look very gorgeous in them. And they might make you tall, too: 6cm height. Yet, leather sole with special insole for people with complicated diva feet like me. Combine with strong colors and strong contrasts (blue-white, blue-yellow, etc.).

Onto that be careful what color your hands and feet have, too! Nail polish is good accessory if it gets too warm. Make sure to have a huge collection of extraordinary colors and this way you can follow the current trend, since it won’t cost you that much but also no one else takes care about the nails.
