grey vintage skirt (today's outfit post)/ siva vintage suknja (današnja odjevna kombinacija)



Hello my sweets:) Today I have worn this wonderful gray vintage skirt. I think it was supposed to be a maxi, but on me it's a midi...not that I'm complaining, I love the mid calf length. I paired it with a simple  body shirt and black (worn out) boots...Yes, I know these boots are seriously worn out, but I get sentimental about my shoes. (That is why I like dr. martens-- I just know those boots will always be with me).There was also a baseball cap to add a finishing touch to the outfit, but as these photos were taken when I got back home, the same was missing.  What do you think about rolled up sleeves? I like rolled up sleeves, perhaps because I love to have my hands free and it really is warm enough. Besides, it is practical especially when you're cooking, cleaning, gardening etc...


Today I'm finishing up Nostromo by Joseph Conrad (birth name Józef Teodor Konrad Korzeniowski) , one of my favourite writers...there is something magical in the way he writes. I've been reading this novel for quite some time and I just feel immersed in it...and yet at the same time I have this feeling that I perhaps don't understand everything that I should...This world he created in his novel feels both distant and near.

Zdravo, dragi moji. Danas sam nosila ovu divnu staru suknju, koja je mislim trebala biti duga, ali na meni je dužine do pola listova, no ne žalim se jer volim tu dužinu, a nosila sam je sa crnim bodijem i čizmama koje su prilično iznošene. ( sentimentalna sam oko obuće zato volim martensice jer znam da ću ih uvijek imati). Nosila sam i šiltericu da upotpunim kombinaciju,a li pošto su fotografije nastale kad sam došla kući već sam je bila skinula. Što mislite o zavrnutim rukavima? kod mene čini se uvijek jesu, to  je praktično, a i sviđa mi se.

Danas dovršavam roman Nostromo, čitam ga već dosta vremena... Joseph Conrad (ili Josef Konrad ako ćemo odbaciti angliziranu verziju njegovog imena) jedan je od mojih najdražih pisaca...ima mi nešto magično u njegovom stilu pisanja, ne znam to opisati, ali nekako baš imam osjećaj da sam unutar knjige dok je čitam, sve mi se čini tako stvarno, a opet tako daleko. Cijeli svijet ovoga romana čini mi se u istovrijeme i blizak i dalek.

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…
