Dressing for formal occassions/ Odijevanje za svečane prilike

Hi, how have you been? I need a little help. This Thursday I have my graduation ceremony (master degree) and I haven't yet decided what to wear. The photographs I'm sharing are from my b.a degree graduation ceremony that was two years ago. My outfit for that day was a no brainer, as I already knew that I would continue my studies so I didn't feel it was a big deal. I went for all black and my main preocupation was being warm as it was winter. I went for a silk shirt and a black pencil skirt. As simple as it gets. However, this time I would like to wear something a bit more interesting and at the same time I don't want to be over the top as it is not my private celebration. Any suggestions, my friends?

  8. Ciao Ivana, congratulazioni! Io indosserei qualcosa di colorato visto il periodo che può essere anche solo un accessorio se devi essere molto formale. Hai pensato ad un abitino? magari un tubino semplice con sopra una giacca corta con qualche ricamo o perlina oppure un cardigan nei colori pastello che vanno adesso tipo il rosa cipria o il giallo chiaro? Se preferisci i pantaloni puoi sempre utilizzare un completo ma sotto mettere una maglia particolare: colori, fiori, pizzo (magari non tutti insieme ;-)). E come capo spalla un trench o un cappottino in base alla temperatura. Poi punta sulle scarpe. Sono sicura sarai bellissima! Caterina www.imieioutfit.blogspot.com

  10. Cestitke draga :-) S obzirom da je crno -bijelo veliki hit ove godine a ujedno i nesto sto svi imamo u ormaru, ja bih se odlucila za tu kombinaciju. Naravno, neki efektniji nakit da razbije monotoniju ili cak neki detalj u nekoj drugoj boji (crvena, denver plava i sl.) :-) Kako god, zasigurno ces zablistati :-) pusa

  13. La camicia era molto interessante! Potresti mettere una gonna lunga fino al ginocchio, magari in blu con una camicia sempre in seta, bianca o proprio quella che indossi in queste foto e da sopra un cardigan in un colore pastello. Oppure un abitino con giacca sopra! Congratulazioni!

  14. Čestitam na završenom studiju! :o) Budući da sam i sama nedavno imala promociju, odjenula sam svoju najdražu košulju (električno plave boje - zaviri u moj blog pa se prisjeti ;), tamnoplave traperice i najobičnije salonke. Primjetila sam da su ostale djevojke imale neukusne kombinacije - premale suknjice, minice, haljinice koje su više za izlazak. Odjeni se u skladu s prilikom - svečano, nabaci omiljeni komad nakita i osmijeh na lice :)

    1. da, upravo bih htjela izbjeći te nekakve prekratke kombinacije, pa čak mislim obući hlače i ja.

  16. Congratulazioni cara! Per quanto riguarda l'outfit potresti optare per un abitino nero con un blazer colorato o anche floreale.

  20. What do you think about to wear a pencil skirt with high heels and a blouse? I think this is really elegant and I´m not sure if this is usual to wear at celebrations in your region.

    Or what do you think about a traditional dress?

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…
