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.

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…
