Fashion Diary: Something old, something new, something blue…

My dear fashionistas, I hope you are doing great and you are ready for a new fashion adventure on Mr.M blog. I believe that you are tired from the last working week, but the weekend is coming and I am sure that we will all recharge our batteries for new victories to come.

As the title of the today’s post says, I will show you how I managed to combine something new, something old and something blue, so we will see how successful I was in that task!

My friends from my hometown tell me that the weather in Belgrade is wonderful, I sincerely wish I could brag about how wonderful the weather is in Berlin, but these days I have more of an opportunity to wear a raincoat than an interesting spring jacket. I don’t know if it’s just some of my subjective feelings, but I think that the weather climate have changed significantly, this spring has the typical characteristics of autumn.

Morning and evening temperatures are lower, sometimes with precipitation and the weather is quite unstable. I experienced in one day during the photo shooting that I experience heavy dry snow like you can see in Snow Globe, the sun is shining, it is raining and all that at the same time of course, is accompanied by a strong wind. I know it seems impossible and amazing, but the weather in Berlin is changeable and people don’t even know how to behave anymore and what they should wear.

When I saw the first rays of the sun, the only thing I could do was send a quick message to the photographer with the words: “I think now is the right time!”. After I got an answer from the photographer to be ready and “to make it happen” in 20 minutes, I only had enough time to brush my teeth and at the speed of light put on the things I had been preparing for days and fitting into this outfit.

The turtleneck that you have the opportunity to see on me today is certainly at least 3, maybe 4 years old, if you will believe me, I never wore it because I did not have the courage to make a perfect fit it with my other items in the closet. I think that the speed this time was crucial and that’s why I put on this turtleneck without thinking and went to take some photos.

As I write this post and look at the pictures, now I realize that the quote: “It’s never too late! Everything in life happens for a reason and at the right time! ” I think that this turtleneck, no matter how funny it seemed, waited too long for its “five minutes” and that I gathered the courage to take it.

You know why I adore Berlin? It is one of those European capitals where there are no fashion rules and official codes… You can go out to throw garbage in a ball gown or if you are not in the right mood you just can go outside in total home casual lounge wear, everything is allowed.

A couple of days ago, I read the German Vogue magazine and saw the headline – “Are you ready for the blue fashion wave?”. I am not one of those people who blindly follow fashion trends, but I got the inspiration to find some blue details from my wardrobe and include some of them in my new fashion story.

I don’t think you can guess how that fashion battle through my closet looked like, since there were things on all sides and the first thing I saw was a navy blue Burberry trench coat and this time it was the base item for me to fit the fashion details in this outfit.

Since the coat had leather details on it, I didn’t give up until I found these pants that have a leather line because I had a feeling that they would be the perfect choice.

There was a dilemma between 3 sweaters: dark navy blue, royal blue and this azure blue sweater that you have the opportunity to see on me today. Honestly, if I had time to think, I don’t think I would have chosen this sweater because it is too intense in color to be covered, so I was constantly waiting for the ideal opportunity and a better sunny day when it could be worn individually.

As for the choice of watch, I really didn’t have a dilemma because the Schroeder Joialliers watch was made as an ideal gold-black combination and because of the details on the coat, I just know that it will be the ideal choice.

For all those who did not follow my fashion adventure last week, this watch is something new to my watch collection, so I suggest you read my previous story and learn something new about this unusual brand from Luxembourg, I am sure you will like their story.

I will share with you a small piece of the story of the Schroeder jewelry brand. Schroeder Joailliers was founded back in 1877, the official supplier of the Grand Ducal Court, which has a long family tradition behind it.

The watch you had the opportunity to see in the previous and today’s post is a new model from the classic Gentlemen Etrier collection that got a redesigned look of the dial that is the result of the creative skill of co-owner Gaby Schroeder. The traditional classic with the best Swiss mechanism got a new modern look!

The new redesigned Schroeder Timepieces “Etrier” watch has Quartz “Ronda 515” movement, white dial with guilloché center and 3 Arabic numerals, and date indicator located at 6 o’clock.

You know that I never leave the house without a backpack and because of that there is always my best friend Picard who never leaves me. This backpack you see today in my post has survived adventures with me across Europe and the world, but as you can see we are still like new and fresh, always ready for some elegant occasions and city adventures.

OUTFIT

Trench Coat: Burberry

Turtleneck: Loro Piana

Watch: Schroeder Joailliers 1877

Backpack: Picard

Trousers: Versace

Sneakers: Loro Piana

I owe you a story about sneakers, but believe me, it’s not that interesting because as a “double” virgo in my horoscope, because of my obsession with cleanliness, I arranged and clean up 5 pairs of navy sneakers and left them to dry. If I tell you that these are really the first sneakers that I saw in the last second and managed to get close to the trench just to see that the colors match, happy that I fit the outfit nicely, I had to go back to the apartment because I forgot the backpack… Sometimes, it happens!

Can you guess what is hidden in this wonderful package? I managed to find out only after this photo shoot because we took a picture on the way to the post office and I didn’t want to open such a wonderful gift on the street, but to keep this wonderful decorative paper in the warmth of my home, the color is beautiful! You know how much I love decorative papers and I like to collect and keep them all…

I know, it sounds hard, but it’s been my hobby since I was little! My mother could never clean up the house of decorative papers from gifts and fine stickers, when I went to college on one occasion she accidentally threw everything away because she mixed up the boxes and today I can’t regret that I was left without those wonderful decorative papers.

My dear fashionistas, we have reached the end of this special post where together we discovered another new fashion trend that will be trending this spring! Do you have in your closet some interesting blue fashion piece that you plan to bring out and see the light of day? How did you like my outfit today? Share with me your opinion!

I really did my best to prepare today’s post with a lot of love and I hope you will like it! See you in a couple of days with some new interesting story!

I advise you from the bottom of my heart to listen to my advice due to the current unfavorable health situation in almost all European and countries around the world. If you need to go out into the fresh air, take a walk and clear your mind, feel free to do so, but do not go to places where there are a lot of people and encourage crowding.

I understand that people need to go out into the fresh air for physical activity and mental health, but you can do that by simple walking the city every day, on low-traffic pedestrian streets. Of course, you can walk in parks and other types of green areas or promenades along rivers, but keep the prescribed physical distance, use disinfectants and wear a mask.

If you have a question, comment, suggestion or message for me, you can write me down in the comments. Of course, as always you can contact me via mail or social media channels, which you can find on the CONTACT ME page. Stay tuned!

With love from Berlin,
Mr.M

What is the color of happiness?

Hi guys! How are you today? I hope you’re doing well and you are ready for the new post! February is here but, somehow I can’t get used to the fact that holidays are over… I’m very sad! This month is very special to me, because as you know, it’s time for India. I’m sometimes like some little child and every trip is real enjoy and adventure. I think that something common, almost every person is happy when it comes to talk about travelling.

 

 

Today, I have prepared for you very interesting post. I will write you about happiness and colors. Ok, when you think about colors and happiness, there is not some direct connections between those stuff, but think again. Try to look from another aspect. For example, you love some special color and you are sometimes very excited when you wear some fashion piece in the color which you really love the most. Have you maybe thought about: “What is the color of happiness?”.

I am a huge fan of lighter colors, especially pastel shades of colors. It’s not a simple love, that love has been passed from generation to generation. My grandfather was always wearing a beige suits, my dad is different. He likes a little darker colors, like navy and black. It’s all genetics, I guess always choose lighter shades of colors just to make some balance. I’m dark, my hair, my eyes are dark brown and lighter colors look much better on me. I look younger and fresh.

We can observe that the fashion from this point that we like to see isn’t changed too much. You have a couple of trends and it’s just “spinning” around and it’s just a question of time when you will be again in trend, younger generations now love to say: “To be chic and cool!”.

I know the fact that it’s not good for me to wear the upper pieces of clothes in some dark colors, like t-shirts, sweaters and sometimes my jackets are in a slightly brighter tone. (at least I try to match every time!)

Navy, gray, black, sometimes some darker shades of brown are best for people who have lighter hair. (it turns out that blond guys/blondies are suitable for almost all colors, since they have bright color of hair, they are super cool!). Because of all this, I decided to do a little experiment with beige color, which went so well. I bought a beige faux Zara shearling similar to prove the theory. At the end, I got conclusion that it is true that it is better to wear a lighter colors near to “face” and get a different visual effect. You will absolutely get some newer, cooler look and you will not lose the elegance.

 

 

Zara is a brand that always has to offer something for everyones taste. Whether you are a fan of the real street fashion or the great classics icon pieces, Zara has in its offer pieces that will make everybody’s wardrobe much cooler and you will be the real trendsetter for less money. Almost every winter and summer stay in my memory because of Zara’s super final sales, especially when you can buy some pieces at a discount of 80% to 90% off! Really amazing, isn’t it?! Such reductions mean a lot to people who are huge fashion lovers but they don’t have the enough budget to cover all expenses of the newest fashion trends. I understand those people, very well!

 

 

How did I succeed to combine three capital colors such as beige, navy and bordeaux? Very simple! The navy and the bordeaux are the colors that match very well, and the beige is so great because it “breaks” the dark monotony and combination gets some new better look. Burgundy turtle-neck sweater is something that everyone should have in their wardrobe. ?

Navy color is a capital color, the best replacement for the black. You will be elegant and I’m sure you will find your place and be in the centre of the spotlight! Believe me!

 

We have come to the end of this post, as you know in life when is something interesting, time flies so fast. I sincerely hope you enjoyed my today’s post and my outfit. I’m so happy and it’s time to tell you that preparations for trip are on and I must hurry up because I’m going to India for less than 48 hours. I must go now! Follow my adventure on social media and expect new posts from India soon!

Best,

Mr.M

It’s time for a New Year!

Hi guys! I hope you are doing well and that you are ready for my last post in this year. Today we have more reasons to celebrate. Fine, Friday is a day of happiness, because there is no person who simply doesn’t feel some sort of happiness for the weekend time. This weekend is very special – we are going to celebrate the New Year’s Eve. I think it’s time to finally think about all your impressions and to say, “Bye, 2017! it’s time to go on!”.

 

 

In the last couple of years I’ve been practicing a some unusual thing, but I’m seeing it now as a custom! I’m working that at the end of each year. We will agree on one thing, which is that each of us has some nice wishes that we want to accomplish and those less beautiful things that we want to forget. I have one iinteresting trick!

Good wishes: Write 10 wishes that you want to achieve in the next year on 10 separate papers. When you finish writing your wishes, fold each paper in half and split it into three parts. Why in three parts? You all know that the number three is a symbol of luck and that’s why this is done in order to “increase” the chance that your wishes will be fulfilled. At the end, you should throw those papers in the fire, because belief suggests that it’s easier for the “ghosts” to carry those wishes and it will be faster to fulfill all of them. Note: Please don’t burn the house! ?

Things we want to forget: It’s the same procedure as for good wishes. Write 10 things you want to forget from this year. You fold each paper in half and tear three times. It is only necessary that those parts of all the papers are placed in a plastic bag (the simple bag that you get in supermarket) that you tie a bag three times and thrown into the garbage can.

This is my ritual for the years, and I must admit it helped me a lot. I’d like to let me know what the results are for you … (if someone wants to contact me in 2018: D).

 

 

The New Year is here to remind us that one particular period in our life has passed. People don’t even notice from all those everyday problems and all stupid things how days, months just pass, but December 31st is an excellent reminder. Whether you are doing: traveling somewhere or waiting this eve at home with your family and friends, one thing is common to all: Joy. I hope that joy will fill our hearts this December 31st.

The big holiday we all welcome is Christmas. I’ll repeat what I wrote a couple of days ago on my Facebook page. I want you to spend the holidays filled with love, understanding and feeling of closeness. Share joy and help those in need. It is very important that during these holidays we remember of all the invaluable value such as: mutual understanding and respect.

I sincerely hope that you have learned something new this year and that with a little more experience you will enter in new 2018 year.

 

 

As I wrote at the beginning of this post, this is my last post this year. I learned a lot this year and I have to thank all of you for that. Thank you! Thank you for all the nice comments and kind words and support. Many people contacted me after posting almost every post this year and they said to me that they learned something new. I’ve learned a lot from you all guys and thank you for everything!

I sincerely hope that in 2018 we will bring to all of us a lot of good things. You can expect some of the new type of posts on my blog next year and maybe new editors in my team whose stories you will also read with love. There will be the stories about Belgrade, Serbia, the region… You will learn something new about people from Balkan and which places and countries you can visit. We will travel, we will meet the world, and you will be with us too! I’m sure you’ll enjoy it!

To those who travel somewhere for these holidays, I want a have a safe trip and of course have a good time. Those who stay home don’t be sad, you never know why it’s good. You can always find a way to have some fun, just need to find the right way. It’s all up to you!

 

 

Once again, I want to wish you: Happy New Year! I wish you all the best from bottom of my heart. You can expect the new post for a couple days. If you have some of your wishes that you would like to share with me and to share with the world please write in the comment. I can’t wait to read them!

 

Best,

Marko

Black & Brown: New Winter Vibe

 

Hello, guys!
Believe or not, winter knocking on the door and I’ve used this nice weather to get out and ‘walk’ my favorite leather jacket. I’m very picky when it comes to leather because I had very bad experience with leather jackets. They tend to be quite heavy which drives me crazy. And then I came across this ‘beauty’ from Hugo Boss… This was true love at the first sight…

Again I decided to play a little bit with colors and I combined brown, black and burgundy. At the end of the story, I believe it turned out better than I hoped. The jacket is simply perfect for all occasions, and I decided to combine it with dark red Kenzo shirt, wine-red shoes and black leather gloves. This could be a perfect example of sport elegance and this is definitely the jacket that every man should have in his wardrobe.

I hope you enjoyed my today’s post. For all suggestions and questions please contact me via social networks. I am looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Best,

mr.M
