today's outfit post "heavy is the head that wears the crown" - današnje ruho "teška je glava pod krunom"

Heavy is the head that wears the crown. Unless that crown is made of braids. Someone remarked that my hear- do today looks like a crown so that is as a good reason to quote Shakespeare as any. ( In original text it is actually " Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown" but for some reason it is always misquoted)  Who ever said your hair is you best accessory knew what he was talking about. Today my hair do made me feel unique and that is a good feeling. It didn't require much time and I haven't used any hair products, but I should say that I'm as used to braiding as to brushing my hair. It did require a lot of bobby pins, to that I'll confess. What else? This jacket is a second hand find and I've been waiting for a sunny and warm day to wear it (pepita pattern- how I love thee!). That day has finally arrived. Just to be on the safe side, there was some layering involved. This belt is a gift, hence special, but I'm not sure does it go with the cut of this jacket. Nevertheless since I've love belts so much I couldn't resist. It was a perfect day to sit on a bench with your sweet heart as many were doing (here in Mostar on the Spanish square if anyone is interested in the location). Some  photographs of me sitting on the bench were taken, but since my legs are too long for it, I ended up looking like a praying mantis. So, I won't post them unless you promise not to laugh.

Lipi moji, kako ste? Teška je grana pod krunom, ali ne ako je to kruna od pletenica. Netko mi je danas rekao da mi ove pletenice izgledaju kao kruna pa  moram malo citirati Shakespeara, ali neću ulaziti u filozofske rasprave, bez brige. Tko god je rekao da je kosa najbolji modni dodatak, znao je o čemu govori. Naposljetku kosa odražava toliko toga, ali i o tome nekom drugom prilikom, ne želim vas udaviti dužinom teksta. Danas sam se zbog ove frizure osjećala posebno, a nije mi trebalo puno vremena za ovu frizuru, samo puno ukosnica. Nisam koristila nikakve preparate i obično ih ne koristim, samo u posebnim prigodama kad mi netko drugi uređuje kosu...nego što da još kažem? Dan je kao što vidite na fotografijama bio predivan i sunčan ovdje u Mostaru, na španjolskom trgu (ukoliko koga zanima lokacija) i brojni su parovi sjedili na klupama i uživali u suncu. Mi smo također, ali fotografije mene kako sjetim na klupi neću djelit jer su ove klupe preniske pa nisam imala gdje sa nogama i ispala sam kao bogomoljka. Podijelit ću ih sa vama samo ako obećate da se nećete smijati. Što se tiče mog današnjeg ruha gotovo sve je poklon (rebe tj. traperice, borša tj. torba, čizmice koje ste vidjeli već sto puta i za koje sam rekla da su kupljene u Leonarda ) Zeleni džemper sam kupila ove zime u Graciji, a pepita jaknu (joj što volim taj uzorak) sam našla u second hand shopu. To bi bilo to, hvala na čitanju.

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…
