Look of the day (outfit post)--- Izgled dana (odjevna kombinacija)





For a change, I'm actually posting an outfit that I wore today. I haven't been feeling myself lately, so I decided to wear what I feel most comfortable in and frankly something that will make me feel better. Red and black is actually one of my favourite colour combinations, so there is that...and you know how I feel about rolled up sleeves. (though to be perfectly honest as a tallish person i.e. someone with long extremities rolling up the sleeves is just a necessity sometimes.)

Some of you asked me about my dog. Well, you'll be happy to know she is well and growing up at almost worrying speed. Already she looks like a big dog and no one would believe she is only five months old.

Za promjenu evo nešto što sam nosila danas. Ne osjećam se baš najbolje u zadnje vrijeme, pa sam danas željela obući nešto u čemu ću se osjećati udobno, pa i nešto što će me oraspoložiti. Crvena i crna mi je jedna od najdražih kombinacija boja...a i znate što mislim o zavrnutim rukavima (mada sa obzirom na dužinu mojih ruku to je ponekad nužnost)

Neki od vas pitali su o mome psu. Kao što vidite ona je sjajno, raste zapanjujućom brzinom i nitko ne vjeruje da ima tek pet mjeseci. Već izgleda kao veliki pasonja:)

dots again (manicure post)---ponovo točkice (manikura)


 

dots, dots...who doesn't like them? gabrini (neon)+ maybeline colorama (white)
točkice, točkice tko ih ne voli? Gabrini (neonska boja) + maybeline colorama (bijela)

Bellissima new collection for autumn-winter / Bellissima nova kolekcija za jesen i zimu

Today I'm going to talk about one brand again. Bellissima is a brand from Bosnia and Herzegovina. I would describe their clothes as being very feminine, elegant and sophisticated.

 Being already available in stores, today I had the chance to check out the new Bellissima collection for autumn/ winter 2013/2014. As far as I noticed, this brand always had really good quality clothes, and this collection is no different. I still haven't bought anything, I really am not  impulsive when it comes to shopping, I always prefer to think first and shop later so I can be sure that what I have bought with work well with other stuff I have.

What I really like about their clothes are the materials and the sewing...I like when the sewing is precise, (I've noticed that in many high street brands it tends to be a bit messy.) I know you cannot have something for nothing, but I'm really annoyed when I see bad stitching. Bellissima, on the other hand, is not that expensive (prices similar to  Zara), but everything about the clothes (materials, cuts) seems so flawless.

I wondered into generalities, but I'm just writing down my impressions. The downside to this brand (if that can be called a downside) is that I can hardly imagine a teenager wearing most of their clothes, so it is not really a brand that is suitable for everyone.  It is probably best option for a professional but stylish look or a formal look with a fun twist, because they do have something modern about their clothes even if it seems to be  based on the classical. In addition, this is a regional brand so you cannot expect to find their clothes in just any town. However, if you happen to travel into this region why not buy a local product? If I understood their site correctly you can find their stores in Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia and Kosovo.

I'm sharing with you photos from the new collection that are available on facebook and their site. The entire campaign for autumn/winter 2013/2014 is still not available on their website, http://www.bellissima.ba/  I'm not sure why, perhaps it is not completed yet.


Danas predstavljanje Sarajevskog brenda...Bellissima je modna kuća iz Bosne i Herzegovine sa sjedištem u Sarajevu. Njihovu odjeću bi opisala kao izrazito ženstvenu, elegantnu i sofisticiranu. Sviđa mi se što uspjevaju biti moderni iako se drže klasike. Pošto je već dostupna u trgovinama, danas sam pogledala novu kolekciju za jesen i zimu. Odjeća im kao i obično, izgleda jako kvalitetno. Nisam još ništa kupila, ja sam više osoba koja voli dvaput razmisliti, ali mogu reći da mi se svidjela.

Kod njihove odjeće mi se jako sviđa što koriste kvalitene materijale i što je šivanje besprijekorno. Šivanje se možda ne čini toliko bitno, ali je, jer ako je šav nekvalitetan, brzo će se raspasti što god kupite. Primjer za to je hrvatski Galeb (većinom prodaju donje rublje, sigurno znate ovaj brend), ja ću uvijek kupiti kod njih jer znam kako šivaju, znam krojačice koje tamo rade i znam da će mi to trajati, iako možda više i ne koriste najkvalitetniji pamuk, ali ionako nitko zaista ne koristi više tako kvalitetne materijale kao nekad, to je jednostavno posljedica masovne proizvodnje odjeće, ali zato ljudi ne moraju više prodati konja da bi kupili par traperica i majicu (istinita priča usput, tako je to nekad bilo)...Malo sam skrenula sa teme, ali pošto moja digresija ima veze sa odjećom i kupnjom odjeće, valjda neće smetati. Uglavnom, mrzim vidjeti loše ušivene stvari i ne može dizajn odjeće biti tako dobar i cijena tako povoljna da ja to kupim.

 Po vlastitom iskustvu (nije neznam kako veliko ali...) odjeća šivana u Hrvatskoj, Sloveniji, Bosni i Herzegovini, Makedoniji, Srbiji itd pokazala mi se puno kvalitetnijom od tih poznatih svjetskih marki koje se sve šivaju u Kini, pa ću onda radije naručiti izravno iz Kine i povoljnije, nego da mi naplate nekakvo europsko ime. Toliko o tome. 

 Natrag na temu posta....Što vi mislite o novoj kolekciji? Fotografije su sa njihove stranice i facebooka iz nove kolekcije za jesen/zimu, ali cijela kampanja još nije dostupna na njihovoj stranici , vjerovatno nije dovršena http://www.bellissima.ba/

Rock me Amadeus

I'm not talking about that genius composer, but about Croatian brand that I really like. Founded in the late 80ties, as a small family business, Amadeus jeans became one of the leading brands in Croatia.  This is not a sponsored post, I've just done some shopping in their store today, but I didn't get anything for free, though as there is a big discount in the store right now, I feel as if I did. If you're interested in Amadeus clothes, you can order it from their site http://amds.hr/en/.

Ne govorim o genijalnom skladatelju, već o hrvatskoj marki koja mi jako sviđa. Osnovani u kasnim osamdesetima , prerasli su iz malog obiteljskog obrta u vodećeg proizvođača ležerne odjeće u Hrvatskoj. Post nije sponzoriran, danas sam bila u kupnji u jednom od njihovih dućana (onom koji mi je odmah pored zgrade) ali nisam ništa dobila za ništa, iako pošto je veliki popust, imam takavc osjećaj ili ti skoro pa da je za badava.

The photographs I'm sharing are actually from spring/summer collection but as the weather won't get cold for a while here, this is the kind of stuff I plan to wear in the autumn as well.  Generally speaking, I must say that I don't think of clothes in terms of season anymore, the weather is so hectic that I don't really see the point in dividing my closet. Sure, really warm sweaters and coats are only for winter but for the rest I just go with the flow. I love how this campaign of theirs turned out, there is such a positive atmosphere on the photos.

Fotografije koje želim podijeliti su zapravo iz kolekcije za proljeće i ljeto, ali pošto u mediteranskim krajevima gdje ću obitavati i neće tako brzo zahladjeti, ovo je otprilike ono što planiram nositi u jesen.  U načelu, skoro pa i ne djelim odjeću po sezonama više. Jednostavno vrijeme je tako nepredvidljivo da najčešće slažem što mi se sviđa, uz iznimku toplih vesti i kaputa koji su samo za zimu, sva ostala odjeća mi je u kategoriji nikad se ne zna.Jako mi se svidjela ova njihova kampanja, baš je vesela atmosfera na fotografijama.









About the brand

As far as I know, this brand was always denim oriented. Casual chic, one might say. So, usually it is denim that I look for when I enter their store. However, as of late I really like their selection of tees and tops, they're really fun and youthful.

Koliko znam, Amadeus je uvijek bio orijentiran na jeans, a njihova odjeću opisala bi kao ležernu. Obično tražim traperice kada uđem u njihovu trgovinu, ali u zadnje vrijeme jako mi se sviđaju njihove majice, baš su zabavne i mladenačke.


I don't wear jeans everyday but when I do I usually chose this brand. First because of the quality, I have a few pair of Amadeus jeans that  I had literally for years. Second, because of their versatility. So many brands just stick with what is fashionable, for example skinny jeans. Not them, they always have different cuts and as a body type that doesn't look that great in skinny jeans I really appreciate that. Versatility is always good if you ask me.

Ne nosim traperice (farmerke, rebatinke kako je kome draže) baš svaki dan, ali kad ih nosim obično odabirem ove. Prvo zbog kvalitete (imam par pari koje imam već godinama), a drugo zato što imaju različite modele i krojeve, dovoljno izbora da svatko može sebi pronaći što mu pristaje. Ne sviđa mi se što su mnogi brendovi povodljivi, pa čim je nešto u modi proizvode samo isključivo to kao što je bio slučaj za uskim ravnim krojem (skinny jeans) koji ne pristaje svakome pa ni meni.

 Now, some things from their website that have caught my attention.
Neke stvari sa njihove stranice koje su mi privukle pažnju.

cats (photography)/ mačke (fotografija)








I've always maintained that if there is an animal that can be considered stylish it has to be a member of feline family. Remember that character on Red Dwarf (old British sitcom), the one that was called simply  Cat? This character cat was something like a human being but he evolved from a spaceship's cat  (don't ask me to explain) Such a great show, I really enjoyed their silly humour. Anyhow, this character was obsessed with clothes and fashion. What do you think about cats? Are they stylish? Whenever I take photos of them I'm sure of this.

Uvijek sam govorila da ako postoji životinja koja ima stila, sigurno dolazi iz obitelji mačaka. Sjećate se onog lika iz Crvenog patuljka (stare britanske serije), kojeg su zvali jednostavno mačak, a evoluriao je iz mačka koji se našao na svemirskom brodu (ne pitajte kako). Ah, bila je to predobra serija, volim taj njihov blesavi humor. Mačak je bio opsjednut modom i odjećom. Što mislite o mačkama? Imaju li stila? kad god ih fotografiram, sigurna sam u to.

my photography ( Dalmatia and Herzegovina)- Dalmacija i Herzegovina ( moja fotografija)












To write about photography...I wouldn't know where to start. I guess it has been a hobby of mine for years, but I never really researched the subject or gave it much thought. I enjoy the process of taking photos, the idea that a moment can be caught. At the same time, I don't feel competent to write about it, so instead of doing so, I've decide to just share some of my photographs that I forever reason hold close to my heart.

Pisati o fotografiji...ne bih znala gdje početi. Već je dugo to moj hobi recimo, a nikad nisam previše razmišljala o tome. Uživam u fotografiranju, sviđa mi se ideja hvaranja trenutka. U isto vrijeme baš se i ne osjećam doraslo za pisati o tome, pa umjesto toga evo samo nekakav sažetak fotografije koje su mi iz kojeg kog razloga posebno drage.
