Summer finally arrived in the town!
Hope you read my previous blog post about Milenika shoes here

Energize your footwear collection with Milenika’s Summer city Sunflower sandal in lemon yellow and flame red. 
Sandals will give every outfit a fresh shot of colour. 
Adjust the buckled ankle strap for perfect fit and walk through the summer.

I am wearing the Deadly Is The Female swimwear - steal my style & take a peak at their shop here:
The most fabulous 1950s style swimwear to make you feel like a million dollars on the beach or at the pool – some are so glamorous they could have stepped straight out of an old movie!

To explore, to discover, to create brand new exciting memories. Summer has just began and we have so much time to make sure we will have one awesome summer this year. Life’s too short not to enjoy the joys of sunshine.Life's too short... buy the shoes you like!!!

Metaphysika for Milenika Shoes Part I


A little about Milenika ShoesFrom sketch to real made shoes. This is the story and motto of Milenika shoes. As a young couple with mutual art pasion from both, Milena Hrastnik (footwear designer) and Dusan Franc Hrastnik (photographer), decided to make a contribution to the world of shoes, so they created Milenika Shoes.
In the beginning of the 2013 this became a family business with the hope to build tradition. This year Milenika Shoes saw its expansion in the Balkans region but also in the entire Europe and USA. 

Visit the facebook page of Milenika Shoes here
or shop at Metaphysika Sarajevo Shop facebook page here

These shoes are top quality and design, sophisticated and with the recognizable signature of black and white striped heel. They are perfectly comfortable and balanced. They represent the most important detail and stand out in any outfit or style you could decide to wear. Milenika Shoes are distinctive and unique just like the person wearing them.
In cooperation with my dear Metaphysika team responsible for establishment of the best shoes store in the region, gathering artists and designers from all over the world and supporting the new ones too, I was engaged in their fantastic campaign for spring summer 2014.

This is the first set of the photography taken for the campaign where I was wearing beautiful City pump – Springquoise shoes -  Multi color leather pump with rounded toes and low V cut vamp, held by black cross-strap, decorated with red stitches. Approximately 85mm/ 3.5 inches striped heel is perfect for day-long wear. Fully made of the softest leather outer, interior and sole.
Like a herald of the spring these shoes will announce you in any day or night occasion. 

Gorgeously tailored black top and a long skirt I am wearing was designed by young and very talented  Nevena Kragić, designer from Serbia while jewelry and the headset / turban made with various colors scarves was done by Dina - D’s CollArs.

Photography was taken by brilliant Muna Nazak and the last but not least - the styling and organization of the shooting by Metaphysika from Sarajevo.

Shoes can be purchased online at www.milenikashoes.com or directly in Metaphysika store in Sarajevo, Deva Ars in Belgrade and Dot.Concept Store in Podgorica.




Enjoy the magical photography of the first set, second set wearing the Summer City Sunflower sandals is coming soon...

Miss L Fire: Rockerfeller Gold



Miss L Fire was launched in 2005 by our founder and designer, Lynsey Hand, and has been going strong since its first season. Miss L Fire footwear reflects a love for all things glamorous, with a particular leaning towards the 'Golden Era' of glamour, 1940's & 50's Hollywood. However, Miss L Fire is by no means a 'retro' collection and simply continues to focus on making the wearer feel fabulous.

WEBSITES:
UK & rest of the world: www.misslfire.co.uk
US & Canada: www.misslfire.com



This glitter vinyl and diamante sandal with fruit detailing looks good enough to eat! The vinyl is actually glittered like a vintage glitter lucite brooch.
Available in two colours.




With a pair of women’s shoes by Miss L Fire you don’t need to worry about your outfit; Miss L Fire shoes are the final touch of every stylish appearance.


When I saw these sandals, my heart skipped a beat. A Vintage fairy tale dream come true!



I'm wearing my favorite vintage 1950's lemon dress with a big bow on the back. The gloves are also vintage.
Fascinator made by my friend Carolina - Jazzafine Pieces full of verve.

Have you ever seen heels like these? Feel like a princess wearing Miss L Fire shoes.


I'm recently obsessed with lucite heels, but it was hard to find an affordable pair. It was really the love at first sight when I saw Rockerfeller Gold by Miss L Fire... shoe perfection and they're super comfy! 


Love,
