Savvy urban hipster or tragic fashion victim? You decide.

Sarajevo has changed the way I think about style.

True.

I'm more of an accessory hound than I ever was in the States, and it's interesting to see this evolution. A year ago, I was the kind of girl who favored petite silver earrings and delicate silver bracelets. Now? Let's take a look at some recent purchases...

I'm am absolutely addicted, full stop, to the cheap, the plastic, and...the ugly? Chunky wooden bracelets on sale? Where? Faux pearls and glass gemstones? Bring it on, baby.

But. If I start incorporating Bosnian hooch into my wardrobe, stop me. If I were sane, there is no way I would do this to myself...


The boots over the tight pants? Always in style in Sarajevo. While I'm proud of my tight pilates ass, there are lines that must be drawn. Lines, people!

Hey now!!! Don't diss skinny pants and boots over them. It's all the rage here, too. Must be a Euro thing...

At least they don't seem to be wearing skirts over pants with boots over pants, like they do here.

Yep, skirts over pants, you heard me right.

Wow, that's a thinker. To pull that off, Swedes must be skinny, very skinny indeed...

yeah, don't we wish! Problem is, they're not, and the results are tragic indeed...

Aren't skinny jeans and high boots back now? Like half of London is wearing them as well as leggings (yes! leggings!) and '80s sweater dresses, and booties too.
