My meditation upon winter trends 2012/2013

 Shiny colours (and materials)
There is no question whether vibrant colours are an eye- catcher. The question is... Will you incorporate them in your own personal style? Well, I guess as with every trend you should see if and how much it works for you. Naturally, if you have a more toned down style you can always opt for colourful accessories.
Skirt+ trousers
Wearing pants and skirts simultaneously? What do you think about this trend?
I think it can look good but you have to be careful how you go about it…However, if you like to experiment forget about caution and use this trend to be as original as always.

The East
Designers dream Oriental dreams, why shouldn't you?

Wear that belt!
It seems we started to wear belts over just about anything! If you ask me, it was right about time! What makes you more feminine than the emphasis being put on your waist? --- rediscover 'em again:)!

Decorative heels
I love them, but I think it is important that you match the rest of the outfit with it. Or not if you're into a more playful style or you know you can pull it off;) For all of you that are up for a little bit of DIY, this is the perfect time to take those old heals from the closet and jazz 'em up a little.

Oversized coats
What is not to love in this trend? You'd be warm and you'll look glamorous. Can it get any better?

I cannot emphasize enough how much I love this shade of blue. I love to see it just about anywhere: Painting, shoes, accessories etc.

Layering always adds that little special something to your outfit. Plus with the weather being as unpredictable as it is, what other choice do you have?

Black leather
Fake or real, leather is just so much fun! Baggie leather pants are the new in- thing, but I haven't seen them around much. Have you?

Nothing like patterns to live up your style. Ah, I could talk all day about patterns. What about you?

Combat the "seen-it-all" by opting for white.  One thing I particularity love are the white dresses because they have something very romantic about them and there are so many ways to wear them.  If you have the guts, dress in all white.

Here it is...My thoughts about some of this year winter trends. What is your favourite look for this winter?

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.

Time for me to cover another Croatian top destination: Trogir. Yes, today I'm taking you to Trogir city. Trogir has one of the best preserved Romanesque- Gothic complexes in Europe. The city can boost with numerous historical landmarks. It has a high concentration of historical churches, towers, structures and a fortress. Literally, every where you look, you'll be beholding history. 
This charming historical city is located on a small island between Croatian coastline and island Čiovo. It is located only 27 kilometers from Split city. Moreover, it's only a five minute drive from the airport Split. In fact, airport Split is closer to Trogir then it is to Split city. If you're visiting this area or landing to Split airport, don't miss  the chance to visit this little city. You won't regret it, I promise. If you want to see how this place looks like in summer time, feel free to visit this Trogir travel post of mine.

What can I say about Trogir that I haven't s…


I can't really attend fashion weeks because I work full time, but with the help of the internet I get to follow fashion weeks digitally. One of the benefits of living in digital times, I guess. If you remember, I have already shared a number of fashion illustrations inspired by  spring/summer fashion weeks on this little blog of mine ( Valentino Spring Collection 20191 & 2, Zuhair Murad Spring Ready To Wear 2019 collection1 & 2Louis Vuitton Spring Collection 2019 ). Please don't click the links to buy the illustrations, they won't lead you anymore as my art store was lost and it will take me a while to manually remove all the links (I'll explain this later on in this post, for now let's concentrate on positive things like this cute new fashion painting I'll share with you and the design that inspired it).
 I was a bit late with catching with Croatian fashion week because I've been busy with work. About a week or so ago, I finally found the time…



As I promised in my last post, my description of  wonderful Trogir city continues. Today I'll show you the city's promenade, its walls and a historical fortress Kamerlengo. We'll start with the latter, as it is one of the main attractions. Castle and fortress Kamerlengo was designed and constructed in the fifteenth century by a local Croatian builder and sculptor known as Martin Radoj. Martin also worked on some of the Gothic elements of Trogir city cathedral and later on in life he was entrusted with the construction of Trogir port. The fortress was commissioned by the Republic of Venice, hence its name 'camelengo ' that is an Italian version of chamberlain. I didn't go inside of  Kamerlengo fortress this time because I've been there before so I just enjoyed observing it from the outside. Besides the Kamerlengo castle, today I'll also show you the city walls and other details from Trogir. Enjoy. 

Once again, here is a li…
