My Stark Collar

Yesterday, after a really long day, I finally managed to squeeze into my busy schedule the Tabor Garage Sale. To tell you the truth, I was looking forward to it all week, only managing to come to it in the evening when everybody was slowly packing up and leaving:S

Oh well. But I did manage to have a few giggles with the girls from Vintage Vikend who were seriously blinged up:
It was great to catch up and just relax and have fun after a long day. The best bit about vintage shopping for me is trying on the craziest, wackiest, tackiest things I can find and just laughing my head off at how funny it looks on me:) I was happily rummaging around the stands, totally lost in my own world:
Blazer: Zara
Necklace: VintageVikend
Blouse: better by baloon
Skinny Jeans: Levi
Booties: Zara
Ring: antique

 While rummaging the stands, I noticed two new labels, Hudamušnica
...and ŠA, with really cool and originally designed jewelry:
As I was hurrying from stand to stand, trying to take everything in before everybody friggin' leaves, this really great faux fur coat caught my attention. At first, I didn't know whether to take it, because it is quite bulky and slightly oversized, but I loved the color and how soft and warm it is. I was never worn before and it was at a bargain price;) So I took it:) Here it is:
The collar actually reminds me a little bit of the fur collars worn by the Stark clan in the Game of Thrones:)
Yeah, Soul Fishing got style!:))

Have a good one,

Paint It Black

Paint It Black

Balmain short black cocktail dress, $3,180 / Balmain black shearling jacket, $10,685 / Alberta Ferretti strappy heel sandals / Michael Kors studded tote / Betsey Johnson black vintage jewelry / Luis Morais black bead bracelet / Long wear lipstick / Rosebud Perfume Co. lip treatment / Guerlain nail lacquer, $25 / Black red nail polish

This fall, black is the new pink. If worn properly, it can look extremely elegant and chic. Worn clumsily, and you have a goth disaster on your hands. So the question here is how do you pull off wearing black? 

I am very fair-skinned, so wearing black was out of the question for quite some time. Experience has taught me that the trick is in little pops of color that really balance out the blackness. So, if you're naturally pale, it's actually okay for every piece of your outfit to be completely black as long as you put on a red lipstick (e.g. YSL No 17) and a natural blush (e.g. MAC in Brit Wit). 

If you want more color, you can always upgrade your outfit by adding a tiny red belt or a red purse. Other complementary colors that go well with black are neon yellow, gold, white, silver, lavender, baby blue, etc.

I hope you found this post helpful,



My Kingdom for a Jolly Good Cuppa

Sri Lanka, also known as ex- Ceylon, is the best place in the world to grow tea. The tea country is in inland and it's one of the most beautiful places in this world. To visit it, one must have a lot of patience and the nerves of steel; in Sri Lanka, one can only dream of highways - or two-lane roads for that matter. So, with heavy traffic and bad weather such as I had experienced, the trip from Colombo to Nuwara Eliya, the heart of the tea country, can easily last for six hours. What is the exact distance from Colombo to Nuwara Eliya? Only 180 kilometers.

Also, keeping calm while everybody around you are driving like maniacs has proven to be another challenge for me. It's insane: they are overtaking you from every way possible. One little space between two cars and a whole bus will try to squeeze itself in - of course it doesn't succeed, making you almost crash into it. Or, one car tries to overtake another and while that car is overtaking the first one, a third car is trying to overtake the second one and the first one together. Or, all of a sudden, with no warning, a tuk-tuk will scurry across the road, making you almost crash into it. Or, a tuk-tuk will be driving into a wrong direction, almost causing a head-on collision.

I swear to God, this is what a driving exam probably looks like in Sri Lanka:

''Honk the horn.''
*honk, honk*
''Good. Now step on the gas pedal.''
*vroom vroom*
''Good. Now turn the steering wheel left.''
*turns the steering wheel left*
''Good. Now turn the steering wheel right.''
*turns the steering wheel right*
''Do you like cricket?''
*head wobble* ''Yes, I do.''
''Good. You've passed your exam. Godspeed.''

Judging from the way people drive here, I am pretty sure that there is a blank space between their ears and one must accept that. If you can't, than you definitely shouldn't visit Sri Lanka. Ever.

Having said that, it's all seriously worth it. Because the tea country is definitely my favorite place in Sri Lanka so far:) You simply must see it. The air is fresh and dewy and it's a real relief from Colombo. It's also quite cooler, so make sure you take a sweater, a pair of jeans, socks and sneakers because the temperatures in the night hit 14 degrees Celsius. The tea plantations are located at an altitude of about 1,800 meters.

Here are a few snapshots of the tea plantations:

Shining Bright Like Diamonds

Sri Lanka is known as the ''Jewel Box of the Indian Ocean.'' It is rich with all kinds of minerals, gems, semi-precious stones and precious stones. So when the opportunity presented itself to visit an international gem show which is annually held here in Colombo, of course I grabbed it with both hands. What woman does not enjoy seeing something sparkly and sinfully expensive?

FACETS Sri Lanka 2013, the 23rd International Gem & Jewellery Show is a must for everyone visiting Sri Lanka. The colorful gems are as much of a part of the cultural experience as, say, riding an elephant.

But where does expensive jewelry come from? 
Well, first, you go to these guys - working 12 hours in the mud, 
digging out gems with their bare hands. Don't ask how much they get paid for.

Then, a jewelry designer designs a lovely piece:

Then, you go to the jewelry cutter
who cuts the diamond in the rough into a perfect sparkly piece of heaven:

And voila! You have yourself an end product:
 The perfect emerald and diamond ring.
Price: $ 100,000

Take care,
