The slava ("celebration"; Serbian Cyrillic: слава) is a Serbian Orthodox Christian tradition of the ritual glorification of one's family's patron saint. The family celebrates the Slava annually on the saint's feast day. But not only families celebrate their Saint Protector! Over here, the entire towns have their protector, and our beloved saints are St. Peter & St. Paul. And, that was celebrated yesterday (as you were able to see on my Instagram account)
Today, no-no.. it's not a "rest-day"
I'm in the office, you're my support
so, let's take a look at some fashion & lifestyle of the days-gone-by:
Funny advertisement text saying
"MY four men and I"
(she's got a LOT of manly laundry)
"Half of dozen summer-sweaters"
I find wearing sweater-looking shirts in the summer
something suitable; it's breathable.
Back in the day,
wearing matching outerwear and beach towel
was the way to go.
Another "mad " hat. :)
"A view to America"
(inspired by US fashions)
Absolutely nothing to say
about the hats lately featured in magazine
...but I'm fascinated by this white suit.
Underwear... breath-taking & gorgons.
Anti-cellulite massage tool.
The start of a new era.
Light & airy look.
A short romance story.
Back in the day, when best detergents
came in the powder form. :)
As if one issue can pass without shoes. :)
What online resources can't tell you is the little things (that make life interesting and real). For instance: it is really important to know that for your Town Fair (that is like most of world's fairs, filled with toys, souvenirs and cotton-candy) you must have A NEW DRESS. It is an essential over here, in my town. Even in the worst of times, moms would go beyond imaginary to give their daughter's dress new collar (ahh, the embroidery!); young girls would work in the fields so they can buy the material and sew the garment themselves (inspired by the magazines, like "Burda", indeed).. and nowadays, we still honor the "NEW DRESS" code.
I honored this tradition, by wearing GREEN:
(yellow-cart with flowers is my moms prized possession,
and my dad's reparation work)
I hope your summer days are filled with sunshine, rest, calm mood and relaxation. I hope your summer nights are peaceful, and romantic. I hope there's a moment every day, that you feel you belong in this world, and this world belongs TO you.. because it does. This is our wonderful world, that we share (digitally) and I'm glad to have you all here, enjoying magazines. :)
Have a great Wednesday.
