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.

A GRACE KARIN DRESS: VALENTINE'S DAY OUTFIT PROPOSAL

What to wear for Valentine's day? I'm sure many ladies (and gentlemen) are asking themselves that question. I can't offer much personal experience on dressing up for Valentine's day when it comes to gentlemen, but I can tell you what I've learned as a lady. I can sum it up in two main points: find something that will make you feel special but make sure you're comfortable at the same time. After all, you want to feel special on this lovely day, don't you? Now, you can define special anyway you want to. Moreover, you must also consider one important fact and that is how you are going to celebrate Valentine's day. If you are celebrating it by going on a hike with your significant other, obviously you'll ditch the heels and wear hiking boots. However, that doesn't mean you can't wear a pretty dress! My advice is to take a moment and plan your Valentine's day outfit, that way it will surely feel special. There are other things to consider as…

Hello everyone and happy hump day!How are you doing? I hope you had a lovely week so far. It's been a while since my last Inspired by post, hasn't it? Well, today I'm back with another Inspired by... feature.  As some of you know, this is a regular feature on my blog that is all about illustrating bloggers I love and that inspire me. I always say it's one of my favourite features and it truly is. Over the years I had the chance to illustrate many many bloggers and it's always something I enjoy doing.

FASHION ILLUSTRATION: ZUHAIR MURAD'S BLUE GOWN FROM 2019 COUTURE COLLECTION

Hello, darlings! I'm back two fashion illustration of one Zuhair Murad dress. This blue gown is so beautiful I simply had to illustrate it twice. It makes me think of the sea, the mermaids and basically the good old 'day at the beach' vibes. There is something so liberating about spending time by the ocean, isn't there? I grew up in a coastal town, and I do miss the sea terribly. However, that is surely not the only reason why I loved this dress so much. You know, when I think Zuhair Murad the first thing that comes to my mind is- haute couture. I feel he is one of those designers who were simply meant to make couture. Do you know what I mean? Murad's designs are always so exquisite, glam and elegant. I do like his ready-to-wear collections, but there is just something about his haute couture collections that makes them stand out in the sea of others. 
 I already illustrated a dress by this designer (here), and with the fashion week on its way, I opted for somethi…
