Modaodaradosti is a blog whose aim is to celebrate all things beautiful. Literally translated, moda oda radosti means ' fashion, an ode to joy' and that sums up the philosophy behind this blog pretty well. Devoted to finding joy and meaning in everyday things, modaodaradosti is always evolving.
It seems that welcoming a sunny day with summer photos was a good idea, because yesterday was one of those perfect sunny winter days here in Mostar. Somehow wearing Lenon sunnies makes me feel Asian (perhaps that has something do with Yoko Ono, perhaps I have her image in my subconciousness) and besides they're just fun! Usually I opt for big classical sunnies, so this felt like a welcome change.
Izgleda da je bila dobra ideja jučer izjutra objaviti one ljetne fotografije jer je zaista jučerašnji dan bio sunčan, ako ne ljetni onda kao proljetni. Ja se neću buniti ako proljeće urani. Baš sam uživala u šetnji Mostarom jučer. Izvukla sam odnekuda ove stare lenonice ( kojima se uvijek osjećam azijatski možda mi je slika Yoko Ono negdje u podsvijesti) i baš mi je dobro došla promjera jer inače uvijek nosim velike crne sunčane. Nasmijala me neka bakica u prolazu koja je tražila veći osmijeh. Legenda!
Some old lady made me laugh with her comments. As my husband was taking photos, she asked me where my smile was, wanting to see a bigger one, so here it is.
Once more, I'm wearing above the knee socks, this time Penti. I like them so much because they keep me warm. The rest of the outfit is no name. For some reason I avoid mals and highstreet brands.
Mostar is a city that has many rivers. Obvioulsy, Neretva is the best know one, but there are many minor ones as you can see. If you're interested I can dig out photos of most of them.
I'm almost one of those bird watchers. I don't do it as a hobby, but when I get a chance I can watch at birds for hours.
Isn't this just the sweetest love couple? I love ducks, they're full of energy and craziness. You never know what they will do.
A friend of mine once had a duck as a pet. Isn't that an idea? But probably they prefer living in the wild.
These are city ducks one could say. Isn't it great when a city has nice parks?
I love it when you can feel relaxed in a city just by visiting a nice park.
Yesterday it felt like spring. Perhaps the spring decided to come early?
Is there anything better than a lovely sunny day?
Catch me if you can....Have you seen that film btw, I really like it.
When I took this photo, I was thinking something along "Sun deity please don't leave us!"
Here it is: the first dress I have ever made entirely by myself. I did make some summer dresses in the past, but I had sown them without a pattern and a sewing machine and at any rate I wouldn't call them very accomplished. I mean, they weren't nearly as polished as this dress and they were not nearly as complex to make. I'm very happy with how this dress turned out. I'm even happier I took this sewing course in the first place because now I can make more dresses like this one! If you remember my November highlights post, you might remember that I've mentioned how I've recently finished a beginning fashion tailoring and sewing course with designer Stanka Zovko.
I promised to show you the dress I made for my course 'graduation'. At the end of this lovely sewing course, you get to choose not only what you're going to make, but also the material and the pattern. The sewing pattern is typically chosen from one of the sewing magazines this designer has …
You have seen (more or less) what was February like for me. Now tell me... what was February like for you? Are you happy that it's already March or do you feel like time is flying too fast?Are you looking forward to the spring?
As far as blogging goes, it seems that I have became more focused on fashion illustrations. In the next month the illustrations will have their place, but there will be more focus on DIY....or at least I think so, because I'm kind of heading in that direction. Apart from that, I have no plans. I have so many ideas when it comes to what I want to blog about, that I often have hard time deciding what not to include. As always, feel free to write about what you would like to see.
Vidjeli ste (više-manje) kako sam provela veljaču...sada mi recite, kakav je vama bio prošli mjesec? Veselite li se proljeću? Jeste li jedva dočekali ožujak ili vam je vrijeme prebrzo proletjelo? Ne zaboravite da nam možda i nije još stiglo i da ime za mjesec ožujak potječe od st…
With winter at our doorstep, I think it's important to make the most out of the left over autumn days. With that in mind, my husband and I payed another visit to our favourite (still not officially opened!) ethno village in vicinity of Medugorje. I wrote about this eco/ethno village a number of times, so if you want to know more (or just see more photographs) feel free to check out my old posts here, here, here, here and here. Autumn is Herzegovina is always gorgeous, and this year hasn't been an exception. We had some sudden weather changes and drastic changes of temperature, but I would still describe this autumn as a beautiful one. The Sunday this photographs were taken on was rather gorgeous, so I'm certainly glad we went on this little trip. I know I'm repeating myself, but I do cherish moments like this. Every time I step into this little village, I feel as if the time has stopped or rather like I have just travelled in time. It's such a charming place! I h…
