Fashion crush of the month! - Balmain mania


Balmain mania

I looose my breath when I see this-- ah =)
Some of you have probably seen my Balmain inspired collage from polyvore, or...? This whole month I've been obsessing over Balmain's gorgeous creations for fall 2012. I love the fabergé egg-inspired pearl embellishments and the floral embroidery. I also love the androgynous/military overall feeling of the collection. I know that some people might disagree with what Im about to say but... I think its super cool that many clothing stores, like Topshop, Zara, Cubus, Lindex, Bik Bok are doing Balmain inspired items... Some might called them knock offs but I think its a great idea and these items are not knock off, come on. The Balmain items are just so unique that its impossible to catch the same feeling but I would'nt mind rocking some of those Balmain inspired items =)

Flowers and pearls

I dont know how many times I started writing and when Im half way there...I change my mind and hit the delete button... I really dont know if this is becoming a habit, but I really hate it and I really want to change it... (why do I keep second guessing myself all this time)... Yesterday I was supposed to be celebrating our 9th year anniversary since we move to Sweden from Bosnia and H.. But I was feeling kinda down, so I did what I do best (I isolate myself, selfish? I know) - later I realize that, that was such a waste of time... I really dont get why I make everything so difficult and why do I question myself so much? Im seriously so hard on myself and I hate it and Im trying to change...I love the way I am but I also know, that I sometimes hinder myself from doing things...Last night I went to sleep really late after a long convo with mom and my friend R... I realize I have a great support system around me... The majority of the stuff that I've accomplished in those 9 years is admirable and kudos to me for that, but I wound'nt be able to have done half of all the things that I'have accomplished without having the people that have followed my journey ... At the moment I feel like I am disappointing them but I learned that isnt so... I will get back on track and I will be where I want to be soon, I just need to snap out of it, and pump my self with energy and my inner joy ...I know this might not make a lot of since and it might even sounds like I'm not that strong... But you need to be weak to get stronger... I guess that what I'm trying to say is that you are never alone. And even though you might think that you are all alone there are always people who support you... Believe in Yourself! And dont ever give up!! I know I wont =)

The voice of nirvana says "come as you are"


 I've been obsessing over Lana's music like for the longest time now... And I recently(like 3 months ago) found some of her new work (Yayo, backfire, kinda out of luck, put me in a movie and you know the rest)... So my obsession got even worse... I want to get my hands on the album... youtube is censuring everything and I get why... but all I want is to listen to her amazing voice... Im really not interested in downloading it illegally, I swear... I want the album and thats it ... So, when is she going to release it, are these song only extras? Do you guys have know anything about this?

Oh say can you see my stars
The nighttime is almost ours
To wander through alleys and look at the bars
Nighttime is almost ours

The headlights from passing cars
They illuminate my face then leave me the dark
A voice of Nirvana says "come as you are"
And I will
The nighttime is almost ours

A sway of the hips and arms
Will cradle you from afar
They swing till you're tired and send in alarms
Nighttime is almost ours

Puer, Pueri, Puero

I had a dream last night that I was sitting in my Latin class (back in high school) and it was a little bit like a reunion, but at the same time it wasnt... My classmates were talking about like what they have been doing since they got out of high school...but everything was so strange, at one point I heard myself talking about gangamn style and omg, I swear in the next part of the dream, random people started to dance and do the choreography ( you know the crazy dance) heheh.. I know how random...
Anyways are there any Latin geeks among us ? Do you know what Puer, Pueri, Puero is? this one is easy =) it totally defines the inspiration of today's look!

Thank you Temi

In todays post,I wanna to take a moment to thank Temi, this girl did a interview about me a couple of months ago and now its up on her blog... I love how she picked some of my photos and how she integrated my Q&A... I hope you like reading this post =)
1. How tall are you? I'm 156 cm (5'1").
2. Where did the title of your blog [done n done] come from? The story behind the name done n done is super long and super personal. But I will try to be short. So, I started "done n done" soon after I got dumped back in 2008. I was really heartbroken. But 2008 was also the year I finished high school, started university and moved from my parents home. So I was going through a lot of changes and  I wanted to create something that was only mine and that I was the only one who could control it. So I started a blog. I decided to go for the name done n done because back then it represented being done with something and starting a new chapter, so done n done is all about reinventing yourself and growing up. At first I was only blogging about my emotions and random stuff. But later I started doing make up because I love being creative. But I always wanted to do fashion so in 2010 I got a better camera and a tripod and I started sharing my fashion style.

3. Describe your style in 3 words. Girly, edgy and fresh.

4. What inspires the way you dress? Everything and anything, fashion magazines, Tumblr, other fashion blogs, movies (especially old movies), music, art, the list goes on and on.
5. What fashion advice do you have to give? Don't become a fashion victim! All trends do not look good on everybody. But I also believe that you can rock anything as long as you make it feel like its YOU and not like you are trying to copy something just because it looks good on everybody else. So my advice is to be YOU!

6. What item do you always splurge on? Hmm, I really don't have an item that I splurge on ... But if I would have to choose one, I would say SHOES! =) 
7. What sparked your interest in fashion? I've always been interested in fashion, but my passion for fashion started when I was 19 or 20 . I think it was around that age that I started to get to know the real me. I became more aware of what I liked and didn't liked and what looked good on me and what didn't looked good. Before that  I just dressed like every other high school girl in my school and I wasn't that obsessed with being an individual. After I got out off high school, the only thing I wanted was to be unique and original and I was sick of blending in the crowd so I started to care about fashion even more. 
And that was it =) you made it to question nr. 7 =) 
Tomorrow I will be posting an outfit of day so stay tuned!
and check out Temi's blog
