Blue (outfit post)/ Plavo (odjevna kombinacija)





Amos Oz said that when he was a child he didn't aspire to be a writer, he wanted to be a book. (books seemed to him less fragile than us humans, he said something in that sense.) I, on the other hand, could say that I wanted to a story.

Stories always fascinated me, written down or told, it didn't seem to matter...I think that might just well explain my fascination with vintage clothes. I love the stories that come with them. Sometimes, you don't know the story, as when you buy clothes at a second hand or vintage shop, but the story is nevertheless there. I think that there sense of history is what makes vintages clothes so attractive.

I've always been fascinated with history, which in some sense can also be seen as a story. A story about things that have passed. The history of fashion is indeed very interesting. I remember reading one book about it and was surprised to see that in the time of ancient Egyptians female formal attire meant going topless.  Imagine showing up for formal dinner today in topless. Anyway, Egyptians ladies used to have these beautiful dresses (or better to say high waist skirts) but nothing to cover the bra area. Interesting, right?

Vintage can be defined in many ways. Simply said, it means second hand clothes from previous era, so in some sense perhaps even 90ties are vintage (isn't that kind of scary?time flies, right?). However, many people when they say vintage clothes think about clothes from the 20ties, 30ties, 40 ties and 50ties. I don't own any clothes older than 60ties (perhaps just one of two items inherited from the granny), I don't think there are any shops here that sell that kind of vintage but if there were I would pay them a visit.

Today for a change, I'm actually posting a look that I have worn today. (This morning to be more precise). I went for a swim at this place you can see in the photohgraphs (in the vicinity of Mostar). As far as the clothes goes,  everything (but the brand new flip flops) is inherited from mum, which means probably 80ties.

What do you think about vintage clothes? Do you like them? Where do you shop for them?

Amoz Oz je rekao da je kao dijete sanjao da bude knjiga, ne pisac...samo knjiga. (Knjige su mu se činile manje krhkijim od ljudi). Ja bih mogla reći da sam uvijek htjela biti priča...obožavala sam priče. Napisane ili ispričane, potpuno svejedno. Mislim da je ta usmjerenost na priču ono što volim kod odjeće iz prijašnjih razdoblja, koju nazivamo vintage odjećom.( Vintage je izraz koji se već ustalio i u hrvatskom jeziku iako je očito stranog podrijekla.) Kad kupujemo odjeću u prodavaonicama odjeće iz druge ruke ili vintage prodavaonicama, ne znamo nužno priču koju odjeća nosi, ali ta priča ipak postoji. Mislim da je taj osjećaj povijesti ono što čini vintage odjeću tako privlačnom.

 Povijest me uvijek zanimala, a i nju možemo gledati kao skup priča. Modna povijest je jako zanimljiva, sjećam se kad sam čitala u jednoj knjizi o povijesti odjeće kako su se drevne Egipćanke na dvoru faraona odjevale u divne haljine (ili možda bolje rečeno suknje visokog struka), ali su bile u toplesu, i to je bila baš svečana ili formalna odjeća, zanimljivo, zar ne? Zamislite da se danas pojavite na službenoj večeri (ili događaju) u toplesu.

Po definiciji, vintage odjeća je odjeća (obično već nošena) koja se nosila u nekom prošlom razdoblju, pa bi prema tome i ona iz devedesetih mogla biti nazvana vintage odjećom, što pomalo zaplašuje, vrijeme leti, zar ne? No, mnogi ljudi pod ovim izrazom podrazumljevaju odjeću iz 20tih, 30tih, 40tih i 50tih. Ja nemam odjeće iz tih razdoblja (možda pokoji komad od bake) jer ih ovdje, koliko znam, i nema gdje kupiti, ali ta takve prodavaonice postoje sigurno bih zavirila u njih.

Danas za promjenu, odjevna kombinacija koju sam nosila danas (točnije jutros) kada sam išla plivati na ovo mjesto koje vidite ( u blizini Mostara). Odjeća, osim japanki koje su nove, je naslijeđena od mame, što znači vjerovatno osamdesete. 

Što vi mislite o vintage odjeći? Nosite li je? Gdje je kupujete?

    1. da, i ja ne nalazim baš uvijek ono što bih htjela kao što sam rekla kod nas baš nema za kupiti stvari iz 40,50tih i tako to...ali eto možda jednog dana naučim stvarno dobro šivati pa uspijem sve to ušiti.

  3. This place looks absolutely beautiful, but I truly enjoyed reading your post. I've never looked at vintage clothes as stories, but really just a throwback, or homage to yester years. But now that I think about, it would be amazing to explore where a piece came from. Who wore it? How did it end up here? You've kind of changed my perception on that :)

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

My fashion illustration of the day + book review / Moja modna ilustracija dana + ogled knjige ( Le Diable au corps) 6.12.2016

This morning I read an amazing novel. Le Diable au corps (translated as The Devil In the Flesh) is a novel by Raymond Radiquet. Believe it or not, this was by first book by this French writer. I don't think I even heard of him before, which is odd, but well, it happens. In his time, Raymond was quite a celebrity and he is still considered as one of the important French writers of that period. Did I like this novel? Quite frankly, I loved it. I just couldn't put this novel down. I must have read it an hour or so. I got up a bit more earlier this morning so I actually had time to read it with my morning coffee (it is not a very long novel but still it is amazing how easy it was to find one's self glued to those pages). Perhaps I should make it a habit, getting up more early so I can read more. 
Jutros sam pročitala divan roman. Đavo u tijelu  (naslov izvornika Le Diable au corps) je roman Raymonda Radiqueta. Vjerovali ili ne, ovo je moj prvi roman ovoga pisca. Mislim da nika…

Lado (drawing of the day/ crtež dana)

Hello everyone! Have I ever talked to you about my love for folklore? I've always been keen on exploring folklore dresses and costumes, mostly because I find them to be very inspirational. In my view, folklore is one of the best fashion inspiration out there. The diversity and the beauty of international folklore dresses and costumes is enough to leave anyone impressed. Here I illustrated one of Croatian national costumes ( we have a lot of them), worn by Croatian national folklore dance ensemble Lado. As a reference for this drawing, I used a photograph from Lado's official catalog. The medium is coloured pencils on papers.
Zdravo svima! Jesam li sa vama ikada pričala o svojoj ljubavi  prema folkloru? Uvijek sam voljela istraživati folklorne nošnje i kostime, većinom zato jer su mi toliko nadahnjujući. Po mome mišljenu, folklor je jedno od najboljih modnih nadahnuća koji postoji. Raznolikost i ljepota međunarodnih folklornih nošnji i kostima je dovoljna da svakoga ostavi zadi…

Diane Von Furstenberg Resort 2018 ( fashion illustration of the day/ modna ilustracija dana )

I know what you're thinking. It's Summer, how can you think about coats? Well, I can. The sweat is literally dripping down by forehead, but I'm going to share an illustration inspired by Diane Von Furstenberg's 2018 Resort collection. It is always good to look forward to something, right? I'm pretty sure that a lot of ladies are looking forward to this collection hitting the stores this November. What I personally find so irresistible about it are- the colours. I'm very keen on bold colours and patterns, so no wonder this collection caught my eye.
Znam što mislite. Ljeto je, kako možeš razmišljati o kaputima? Jednostavno mogu. Znoj mi kapa niz čelo, ali ipak ću podijelit modnu ilustraciju nadahnutu kolekcijom Diane Von Furstenberg za 2018. godinu. Sigurna sam da će se puno dama razveseliti kada ova kolekcija stigne u trgovine u studenom. Ono što je meni osobno tako neodoljivo kod ove kolekcije su- boje. Jako volim žarke boje i uzorke, tako da nije nimalo neobič…
