Instaparty tips and tricks

Hey hey! This time I've decided to do something different than the usual Instaparty post. Since Instagram is one of the most popular social networks (it gets a lot more engagement than Facebook or Twitter), I summed up some of my Instagram tips and tricks that can (hopefully) help you create eyecatching photos which will get more likes and attract more followers. I hope you'll learn something new and if you have any other tips to share, I'd be very happy to read them!

1.) Avoid blurred lines
Photos draw people in like nothing else, so make sure that the content is eyecathing and most importantly, avoid blurry photos! Tap on the item on your screen that you want to expose. Your phone will sharpen it and make it stand out from the background.
2.) Use daylight
The lightning can make or break your photos. Use daylight when taking them, since lighter pictures are easier to edit and have a better effect on people.
3.) Play with different angles
Try taking photos from different angles. Shoot your breakfast from above, bouquet of flowers close up and capture landscape from afar. Try different options and see which one works best. This way your layout will look more dynamic and enticing for your potencial followers.
4.) Square your photo
Before taking a photo, set your settings to 'square'. This way you'll catch in frame exactly what you want and won't have to crop the photo later.

Très jolie, Paris

All good things come to an end and so has the fashion month. Paris was its grand finale and when there's Paris, there's Chanel. Collections are more fantastic every season and Karl Lagerfeld always surprises with the unique and notable fashion shows. Although this season tweed still remains the main piece of the collection, traditional black and white colors are replaced with the beautiful flowing rainbows. I love the play of different textures, feminine silhouettes and a touch of romance. Karl has once again gave an unforgettable show with divine creations that glorify female body and thus concluded Paris Fashion Week in grand style.

Ob omembi besede Pariz, pomislim na tri stvari: Eifflov stolp, makrone in Chanel. Če bi morala izbrati samo eno znamko, ki jo nosila do konca življenja, bi se najverjetneje odločila za Chanel. Kolekcije so iz sezone v sezono bolj fantastične, Karl Lagerfeld pa vedno znova preseneti z odmevnimi in edinstvenimi modnimi revijami. Čeprav tvid še zmeraj ostaja v ospredju, so včasih značilne črno-bele odtenke, na tokratnem tednu mode zamenjale pisane barve in živahni vzorci. Všeč mi je prepletanje različnih tekstur, ženstvene silhuete in pridih romantičnosti. Karl je ponovno pripravil nepozaben šov z božanskimi kreacijami, ki poveličujejo žensko telo in s tem zaključil pariški teden mode v velikem slogu.

Hey, Missy!

You know my obsession with bags, right? I guess some are obsessed with shoes, but I prefer bags. Although Chanel 2.55 remains at the top of my wishlist, I find a new favourite every month. Some time ago I was looking at Stylescrapbook's post and saw a beautiful blue croc-effect bag that went perfect with her outfit and *bam*, I had a new favourite. It's Neri Karra's Missy bag, that comes in two sizes, countless color options and lots of different patterns. Every Missy tells her own story and I've chosen three different ones to built a specific outfit around them. Which one is your favourite?

Po skoraj dveh letih ustvarjanja bloga, najbrž že poznate mojo obsedenost s torbicami. Zame so torbice tisti ključni modni dodatek, ki zaokroži celoten videz in izraža posameznikov slog oblačenja. Na vrhu mojega seznama želja je sicer še zmeraj Chanel 2.55, takoj za njo se uvršča torbica (mini) Missy, blagovne znamke Neri Karra, v katero sem se zaljubila na prvi pogled! Všeč mi je raznolika izbira živih barv in zanimivih vzorcev, ravno prava velikost in praktična oblika. Čeprav velja, da obleka naredi človeka, to vsekakor velja tudi za 'misice', ki vsaka zase govorijo svojo zgodbo. Izbrala sem tri različne in okrog vsake sestavila outfit za različno priložnost. Kateri je tvoj najljubši?

Ciao, Milano!

From Gucci, Versace and Giorgio Armani to D&G, Emilio Pucci and Marni.. Milan FW has some of the biggest designers to present. Even though there were quite a few beautiful collections, it wasn't hard deciding on my favourite. When I saw Chiara Ferragni's video from the show on her Instagram, with models skating and 'I'm a Barbie girl' song playing in the background, I knew Moschino is my favourite! Well, I wasn't expecting anything less from the amazing Jeremy Scott and his rich imagination, but still, he always knows how to surprise! He's the only one that can break all the fashion rules and still design the best collection with some of the most fantastic pieces. Fashion should be fun and this is what he does. This time the line was inspired by iconic Barbie and even though I've never played with it in my childhood, I'd love to wear some exciting pinky pieces from the collection! What about you?

Iz Londona tokrat potujemo v Milano, čigar teden mode se lahko pohvali z najodmevnejšimi imeni modne industrije. Čeprav me je navdušilo kar nekaj kolekcij in sem našla kar nekaj kosov, ki bi jih z veseljem imela v svoji omari, pa ni dvoma o tem, kdo mi je bil najljubši. Vse odkar je Jeremy Scott prevzel vlogo kreativnega vodje pri Moschinu (pri katerem je, mimogrede, nekoč opravljal prakso), je popolnoma razburkal modne vode in porušil vsa modna pravila. S svojo bujno domišljijo in izrednim talentom zna ustvariti dih jemajoče kolekcije, ki navdušijo prav vsakogar. Moda bi morala biti zabavna in prav to je tisto, kar on počne. Tokrat ga je navdihnila ikona Barbie in čeprav se sama v otroštvu nisem igrala z barbikami, bi z veseljem oblekla kak punčkast roza kos iz kolekcije! Kaj pa ti?

Best of LFW

From New York to London. This time I present you my favourite catwalk looks from the English Capital. I was really looking forward to see Burberry Prorsum collection, which as you may know, I'm always very excited about, but unfortunatelly this time it left me indifferent. I feel like it was missing the main thread and the see-through outfits were quite non-functional. Oh well, I guess every love story comes to an end and this year I replaced my ex with Marchesa. I mean.. WOW! Just look at the sexy lace, feminine cuts and floral embroidery! I really wouldn't mind wearing these beautiful dresses for a night out or even get married in one of those two ah-mazing princess gowns! :) Are you impressed as much as I am? Share your thoughts in the comments below.

Mrzlica modnega meseca me je kar posrkala vase in vsak dan s hrepenenjem gledam slike modnih blogerk, ki v izbranih outfitih pozirajo gručam fotografov, jim zavidam selfieje s slavnimi zvezdniki na after party-jih in občudujem čudovite nove kolekcije modnih dizajnerjev. Čeprav sem bila razočarana nad revijo Burberry Prorsuma, ki me običajno več kot navduši, pa me je toliko bolj očarala Marchesina kolekcija, ki jo odražajo prefinjene čipke, volančki, izvezene rože in ženstvene silhuete. Čista romantika, o kateri sanja vsaka ženska!
