outfits post: me, my mum and my nephew/ Današnja odjevna kombinacija: ja, moja majka i nećak.

This is my third post today so I guess that makes me a productive blogger. The chance is that I wouldn't be as nearly as motivated if I hadn't such lovely commentators. Thank you:) As you can see from the photos, my nephew is a very active child. The up side to babysitting is that I don't have to feel bad about skipping the work out, because who needs exercise when you're running after a toddler? Moms out there, I know you catch my drift! When I'm on the subject I just want to say that the expression "working mother" makes no sense. Every mother is a working mother! It is the most responsible job there ever was!

 These photos are not  exactly mean to be outfit post photos but why not do something different? As you can see, my mother is wearing her christmas present! I have promised to keep you posted, haven't? Well, the good news is that  she liked the bag.

About my outfit:  the green scarf is vintage and so is the corduroy jacket. The green sweater I'm wearing underneath is a no name as is the grey summer dress (that I have decided to wear in the winter.) Borsa is from Borsa. The stockings are Penti and the shoes are nosens. I almost forgot. There has to be some DIY, it is me after all, right? The long necklace is made by yours truly.

Nekada iz linosti pišen samo na engleskon, a sada ću malo prominit ploču i napisat i nič i na dijalektu i na hrvatskon. Lipi moji, kako ste? Postan već treći put danas, a kako i ne bi? virovatno i ne bi da nima ohrabrujućih komentara, jel tako? Na tome van fala. Ajde da buden iskrena baš i ove slije nisam zamislila za ovu svrhu, ma zać ne probat ništo malo drukčije i spontanije u jednu ruku. Ča mislite o tome? Ka šta vidite, mali od brata je jako živ. E sad, ča je dobro kod čuvanja dice? Lipo se istrčite pa van ne triba fitnes. Matere koje jemate živu dicu znate o čemu pripovidan, jel tako? Kad san već kod tega, izraz zaposlena mater je bezveze, sve su matere zaposlene. To je najbitniji posal koji je ikad bi na svitu. E!

Dragi čitatelji, kako ste? Ovo je moj treći post danas, pa pretpostavljam da me to čini produktivnom blogericom. Naravno vjerovatno bi bilo drukčije da nema vaših komentara. Kao što možete vidjeti na fotografijama moj nećak je jako aktivno dijete. Dobra stvar kod čuvanja djece je što vas ne mora peći savjest ako ste preskočili vježbanje. Kome treba vježbanje kada trčite za dvogodišnjakom?  Majke koje ovo čitate, znam da razumijete što želim reći. Usput, mislim da je izraz zaposlena majka bespotreban. Svaka majka je zaposlena majka! To je najvažniji posao koji je ikada postojao.

* just in case anyone is wondering, the first paragraph is in my dialect and the second in standard Croatian. Do you see how they differ? That is what I love about languages and dialects. There is a soul in them all.

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…
