Fashion Diary: Red color is perfect for all seasons!

Dear fashionistas, welcome to my new post. A few days ago, we enjoyed the natural beauties of Divcibare, but now it’s time for me to return to the streets of urban city. Today it’s time for a new post from a special fashion series of posts called “Fashion Diary”.

A couple of weeks ago, you had the opportunity to see one classic color palette that will be worn this summer and learn a couple of useful tips on how to maintain your cotton clothes in the best possible way. If by any chance you did not manage to read my previous post from this series of posts or you want to learn tricks for maintaining a cotton wardrobe, do so by clicking on this link.

Regardless of this current health situation in whole world, our Belgrade has not lost its shine. People slowly but surely decide to take occasional walks through the streets of the capital and enjoy the nice weather. When foreigners ask me the famous question: “Why do you love Belgrade?” my answer is pretty simple – because it has a soul!

We may not be developed like some other famous European metropolises, we may not have a high standard of living, but the art of managing the life, the way we look at life and cordiality sets us apart from others! We, Serbs, are truly a united people, and through the interviews I conducted for my column on the blog “My Side of the World”, most of my interlocutors, and even some foreign statesmen, stated that Serbs are definitely a unique and unrepeatable people!

In the previous fashion story, you saw how a neutral palette of pastel colors like beige and shades of brown with white match perfectly, while today you will see how that same white color blends in with the bright coral-red color.

What do we know about red color? Have we ever wondered how the phenomenon lies behind this color? Red is a color that can represent two completely different extremes. It can be a symbol of passionate love, seduction, adventure on the one hand and violence, danger, on the other hand. Our prehistoric people precisely believed that the color red represents fire and blood – the energy of one side and the primordial life forces on the other side. Everything that is associated with this color today comes from powerful associations in the past of our ancestors.

Red is also a magical and religious color. The ancient Greeks symbolized superhuman heroism and Christian crucifixion with red color. The color red was almost uniformly rare and expensive as purple in ancient times – which may explain its magic and power.

Did you know that red is one of the two favorite colors of almost all people in the world. Red is the most common color used on flags in the world. An interesting fact is that almost 80% of all flags include red color. Red is an international color that is a symbol of stopping.

The famous “Red Quarters” in the world that sell sexual pleasure and pornography in every European culture are symbolized by the color red color, which means that we are returning to passion. The history of human language reveals that red was the first color to appear after black and white. All languages have words for black and white. If there is a third shade believe me it is red!

In a previous blog post, I listed some of the colors that will be trending this summer and among them was coral red and bright red (which my mom would say “young red color”). I decided to “respect” the fashion laws in my own way.

You had the opportunity to see fashion details from this post, such as backpacks and sneakers, in some of the previous posts, I just tried to keep them nice and here we are again on the streets of Belgrade. The pieces of clothing are new and I hope to make some more interesting combinations with them this summer.

The most ordinary red T-shirt will always find some perfect classic pants or jeans and make us a “fashion icon”. White pants are ideal for summer, but only if you carefully choose where to sit because not all surfaces are best friends with snow white color!

From Picard with Love…

Hi everyone, how are you today? It’s time to do some final preparations for the weekend. Friday is a magical day, there is no person on the world, who does not like this day. Maybe some people are more looking forward expecting this day than holidays, I have to admit that I understand them… Everyone needs some time to rest, but the daily duties and everyday life do not give us much free time and maybe it’s just Friday, a symbol of freedom that we expect every week with with a smile on our face.

Since I had to get out of my “cave” (house) to pay some bills and to attend on some business meetings for potential collaborations with my blog in the future, I decided it’s maybe a perfect time to make the new photos for a new post. I called the photographer and we “occupied” the most Instagramous spotlight in Belgrade (the most famous place where people are most photographed for Instagram when they are in Belgrade) – the crossroads of Uzun Mirkova and Kralja Petra streets. This crossroads has been on the photos so many times and there are no influencers who did not make some fashionable post here. I decided to see what is so special at that crossroads, will this place help me make some new beautiful and fashionable photos for the blog.

Okay, I have to admit the location itself is very photogenic, but avoid shootings during weekdays in the middle of a city crowd. Well, it was not bad, but on the other hand, I wanted something a little different. The photographer gave me the idea that since we do not have much time for making photos we should move to a little less noisy street in the city center to make pictures for this post. I listened that advice and we started to take pictures of the Belgrade streets that make Belgrade’s heart so unique and so original.

New Year’s decorations are still on the streets, maybe the authorities are afraid that the people will “enter” in the massive epidemic of “post-holiday” depression, and they are trying to keep the decorations and lights on the streets of Belgrade as long as possible (I heard that the situation is similar in other cities in Serbia and some other countries in Balkan region) .

I decided to ignore winter temperatures, so I replaced the winter jacket with a trench and I brought a little color into my monotone beige-gray combination with a red bag. When I was at Picard, I noticed a nice red leather skins during the tour, but I did not see what a product looks like in that colour. On my question whether they made a bag or some of the leather goods in this unusual red color, they showed me the model of the backpack you saw in one of the previous posts – LINK and this business bag, which is usually intended to carry a laptop.

Since I already picked a same model of backpack in brown colour, I was a bit strange to take the same model of backpack in red, but on the other hand what would I gonna do with a business bag ?! My dilemma was solved by the girl who made me company during the tour and gave me a couple of main key reasons why I should have one business bag in my wardrobe.

For a long time, this bag was waiting for its “special occasion” to be carried, but finally it saw the light of the day when little Marko realized that it was not serious to carry folders and important papers that were uncomfortable in the backpack and that this business bag was ideal for little Marko to step into the business world. Meetings passed in the best possible order, even this red beauty got a lot of compliments, precisely because of its unusual color.

So another Friday has passed, the bag had its first official appearance on the streets of Belgrade, and Marko, after completing his duties and shooting for this post, honored himself with several hundred grams of dry biscuits in his favourite bakery and shared with his photographer. Of course, the beautiful sunny Friday is used in the best possible way – in a good mood, with smile on the face and walking the streets that make this city so special.

Are you ready for upcoming weekend, my dear Belgrade? Surely, as always, I’m sure that you’re interested to know what I’ve put on this time, so I’ll leave you a little hint, but do not tell anyone, give me your word that you will not reveal my little fashion secret! Ok, ok I believe in your word!

One Day in September…

Hi everyone, how are you today? I am sure that this title has associated you with another essay, which you once had as a topic for homework when you were at school… I know that I also had the same problem to think of the name of this post. For hours I just watched in the keyboard, but the inspiration has left the building. After an interesting summer, it was time to rest for a couple of days and now I’m preparing for new adventures that await me at the end of this month. I just can’t wait to share it with you guys!



Few days ago, I received a message from my friend. She heard that I finally came in Belgrade and we had to go on a little coffee break and of course one round of chit-chat.

I immediately agreed and postponed some of the duties that I had on that day. At the end of the conversation she just mentioned that I should took the camera with me and that if I had something important to shoot for the blog. She would like to me photos of me, if I have some free time. I’m thinking in my head for a few seconds, “Man, where’s my camera?!”. When you do not use some things for a couple of days, you forget about them completely.

People who know me know how much I am organized and that I all write my appointments and important tasks and duties in a special diary, and just cover over the obligations and meetings I have to do. I did not notice one collaboration because I seemed to be at some point my minds were away, so I was a little creative and almost painted one part in my diary. After a few seconds, I saw the writing “Beige pants for post – publish until 29.08”. At the moment of shock, I said, “Oh man, I have the time today is just 11. I do not have to shoot it today…

I continued to look at things in the closet further and I just took the clothes which I was planned to wear. First I played my playlist for a happy mood, turn on the flatiron and I started to iron in the rhythm of some Latin song and at that moment hit me in the head “MARKOO YOU’RE STUPID MORON, NOW IS SEPTEMBER!”. I take my planner quickly again to turn all of the pages to find the page with my calendar of posting on the blog and realize that I am late seriously for this job!



With the speed of light I found trousers because clothing in my closet is organised ver well, I can thank my mother who regularly reads the diary and she make the right order of the things that arrive when I am not there. No one cares as a mother… I turn on the iron again to refresh the trousers, I continue to sing and dance in the rhythm of music with the iron in my hands, yes it’s crazy I know! A message from a friend: “I’m going to be late for 15 minutes, do not make a panic!”

This girl knows how I’m sensitive when we talk about delays. I just thought about that if she only knows how late I would not stay alive from her nasty comments. I’m proud that I’m very well trained to iron all types of trousers, men should make some special monument which will be dedicated to all of the women who know to iron classic trousers, who knows this, believe me if you already have learned this you finished the most important exam at the “life school”! ?

This feeling of happiness and pride was short, because I realized that the t-shirt which I just ironed at all did not combine at all with the colour of the trousers. I started to look for another shirt that it will stick better with this outfit. Yes! I just found an ideal shirt that was already ironed, you can not understand that dose of luck, I just wanted to cry because I don’t need to use that iron machine again!



At the end, little Marko was late for more than ten minutes, but we did not care about it because when we started with our stories that have no end at all. We did not see each other for months and we had too much to tell, but since we are the professionals we have been able to short everything in record time – ONE hour! All important things which happened to us for all those months we put it all in one hour of conversation. She mentioned to me a course of photography and that she would like to use my camera and to make photos of me for the blog, so I suddenly became the first model she officially photographed…

Frankly, I am very pleased with the results of our first collaboration and I hope that we will continue our collaboration in the future. She tried to “get me in special model pose”, but that’s almost impossible! I’m not a professional model that you’ll put in a mold, some photographers tried to change me many for my career with the explanation that the images will be much better and “viral” on social networks and the Internet, but this was never of any concern for me. It is better to remain with the thing which you already have and to stay unique and original, without popularity than to sell yourself for what?



And this time Belgrade’s streets helped me well and now must post have some special extended value for me. Many of you asked me if I forgot my beloved Belgrade. I’m not coming to often… You can never forget the place which is your home! Maybe I have the opportunity to explore the world, but I will always return to my Belgrade again and again. This was a short episode “Marko is coming home” and I hope you liked my little adventure in Belgrade. I would like to take the opportunity to thank the Italian fashion brand Eleventy for wonderful cooperation and understanding, as well as my friend for these beautiful photos.

One Fashionable Supreme Summer

Hello guys! How are you today? The weekend is behind us, I sincerely hope that you have used this pleasant sunny time and that you have filled your “batteries” for a new working week. Summer is a period when a person wants to try something new, just to get a little out of his usual life rhythm. So I decided and finally to face a fashionable style that I “tried” to avoid, but it’s obvious that a person can not get away from the “trainer” sportive style.



The first thing I promised myself is that it will not be a black, gray or dark jogger trousers (track suit), because those are the everyday colors to which I am faithful and I will take the most colorful colour which I find in that moment. As soon as I entered the store, I saw this bright red trousers and simply picked up without thinking from the sales table.

I tried not to try at all at all, because I feel if I saw all my defects in the mirror I would rather leave it and find some classic trousers or jeans that were maybe better for me. This first part was ended, I had an idea in my mind how I would combine it and went straight to home to do it because I did not have much time to do the shooting because I was supposed to go on the trip.

As soon as I entered the house, my mother were doing her ordinary everyday duties like cooking… I used the opportunity and quickly said, “I bought a red jogging trousers!” Mom just stopped with her work, the feeling was the same like in the Indian series when actors look at each other for few moments. “What did you buy?!” – Red trainer! (I screamed from another room). She left the kitchen and asked me to show her. “Man, do they have this in my size?!” She was absolutely speaking delighted with the trainer. Finally, she finished with the preparation of the lunch and the action now was able to start.



We went out then we forgot that we don’t have any idea where we can make good photos for this post. Sitting on some bench in the neighbourhood sometimes could be very interesting. 🙂 We were almost spent few minutes thinking where we could make some amazing pictures for this post… My mom was trying to help me with some associations like graffiti, garages, but we could not remember where we could find some place like that at that moment. On all these problems, Mom realized that something was missing out on my outfit…

She remembered! THE BACKPACK! Where can I find an interesting backpack?! We remembered one of ours family friends who is crazy about fashion accessories, fortunately he is living in the neighbourhood so we headed to his house. Maybe we were looked like some “fashion” maniacs, but it was urgent! ? Luckily he was at home and after about ten minutes I pulled out this red bag from a dust bag. He didn’t even want to hear, that I am going to take this bag out because that’s his favorite backpack in his wardrobe, but we used some charm and we promised that we will return it in one piece in 15 minutes maximum!



Then my mom remembered where we could make good photos, we just run into first tram which we saw. She explained to me that the building where we used to live might be the perfect spot for shooting. Come on, I don’t even have any idea on my mind, however, I followed the famous sentence “mothers know the best!”, so I listened her advice. Now, I think that was a perfect idea! We made interesting pictures. Yeah, I must admit that we stayed little longer than 15 minutes, our friend was little angry, but we bought him a nice chocolate so everything was good! Thanks God!



My dear ones we have come to the end of this post, time always flies so fast when you’re having a good time! Don’t worry in a couple of days I will write a new post for all you guys, where we will discover some of the beauties of Morocco together. I can’t wait to show you, I’m so excited!
