Badnjak u Splitu/ Christmas Eve in Split/La vigilia di Natale a Spalato

Today it's raining cats and dogs in Mostar. I just got back home from the library and I'm soaking wet not to mention that I managed to slip down  and almost injured myself (I'm not so crazy about the rain right now). Anyway  I'm in Mostar again (the photos I took for the last post were taken here).

However, the photographs  I want to show you were taken in Split on Christmas Eve. It was one of the most beautiful days ever, sunny and warm. I decided to have some fun so I mixed different colours and patterns together.  On top of it all I wore a dark (sort of grunge )corduroy coat I haven't worn since High school. (not that  I needed the coat during the day.) 

Danas kiša pada kao iz kabla u Mostaru. Vratila sam se i knjižnice skoro pokisla do kože. Usput sam se uspjela i poskliznuti i skoro se razbiti tako da nisam baš luda za kišom u ovom trenutku. Kao što rekoh, u Mostaru sam opet i one fotografije iz jučerašnjeg posta su slikane tu. Međutim, danas vam želim pokazati što sam nosila za ovaj Badnjak u Splitu. Dan je bio sunčan, stvarno prekrasan. Izmiješala sam svakakve boje i uzorke, a nosila sam i jedan kaput neurednog izgleda (od samta) kojeg nisam obukla od srednje škole. Želim vam svima lijep dan!

  15. Hello Ivana,

    gosh, you looking so pretty! These are really nice pics and the citybildings in the back looks stunning.

    I like your outfit as well. Your skirt is very short, but this set the fokus to your long und killing legs.

    By the way: i like it, if your hair is open.

    My favorite pic is the 3 from bellow - with the bike in the back.

    Greetings from Germany.

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…
