City of light (outfit post) / Grad svjetla (odjevna kombinacija)

 Andrić,  Nobel award winner for literature, described Mostar with these words: "the city of light. " He said: "The light in this city is of special quality"...and I have to agree with him. These photos were taken with a mobile and it was getting late...but they came out pretty good all things considered. Perhaps the magic quality of light in Mostar?

On other note, this outfit is all about DIY. My mum made the top years ago and I loved it ever since...and remember that DIY bag from the other day? I'm really happy with how it turned out! Now, this gypsy dress you have had the chance to see before. I had bought it in Acireale (points for those who know where that is) years ago... Anyway, isn't it great when an item of clothing lasts for years....Baci di Aci! that  phrase stuck in my head:)

Andrić je nazvao Mostar gradom svjetla, rekavši, kako je svijetlo ovdje od posebne kvalitete...i moram se složiti sa njim. Ove fotografije su slikane mobitelom i već je bilo kasno, a opet nisu loše ispale...možda zbog magičnog svjetla u Mostaru? 

No, malo o odjevno kombinaciji...ima tu puno toga uradi sam...Npr. ovaj žuti top mama mi je davno ušila i od tada ga obožavam...i sjećate se one torbe koju sam ušila neki dan...evo kako izgleda. Nije loše, zar ne? Cigansku suknju vidjeli ste i prije, a kupila sam je davno u Acirealu (svaka čast ako znate gdje je to). Zar nije sjajno kada neki odjevni predmet traje godinama?

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.

HOW TO STYLE A METALLIC DRESS FOR TRANSITIONAL WEATHER?

How to style a gold metallic dress for transitional weather? Today I have an outfit proposal that answers that question. I styled my metallic wrap dress with brown boots, a white and brown bag and a tartan blazer. The blazer has some gold treads so I thought it would be a good match for the dress. Besides, I like the idea of pairing a metallic dress with tartan. It looks more interesting that way. I was never one to shy away from patterns. This outfit can be worn both as everyday and night wear. The golden touches make this outfit look more dressed up, and heelless boots make it appropriate for day wear. If you want to glam an outfit like this one, all you need is a pair of high heels. 
Metallic dress looks more tricky than it really is. Styling a metallic dress, for example, isn't that hard. As always look for colours and tones that suit your skin tone. Pair your metallic item with other items you like to wear or go for a full metallic look.  If you don't feel comfortable en…

READING UPDATE: PLAYER PIANO AND FAULT IN OUR STARS (BOOK REVIEWS)

Is anything as lovely as a sunny spring day? I missed reading outdoors, I can tell you that. Sitting on a bench on a nice spring day, with a nice book in one's lap, now that has to be one of the greatest pleasures in life. Speaking of reading, March has been a good reading month so far. As loyal I am to my favourite writers, I also love to discover new ones. I try to read at least one new author every month. This March I read two American authors for the first time: Kurt Vonnegut and John Green. Naturally I heard about them before. Both of them are quite well know, but this March marked my first introduction to these two. They are not the only 'new' writers I tried this month, but more about that some other time. Earlier this month, I read Kurt's Player Piano and Green's Fault in Our Stars. I liked Player Piano much more that Fault in Our Stars but I was kind of expecting that. I'm happy I read both, though. It is just that Kurt's writing is more my cup of…

HOW TO STYLE A BATH ROBE COAT FOR TRANSITIONAL WEATHER?

One of more puzzling trends for Spring must be: the bath robe trend. It exists in many shapes and forms. Just like regular bath robes, these coats are made of different materials and come in different styles. Bath robe coats can give different vibes, from luxurious to relaxed ones. These bath robe coats sometimes come in silk and satin, while at other times they are made of wool or cotton. There was some confusion when the bath robe coat first appeared on the runaway. It was actually a few years ago, this is not the first season that it was introduced. However, this season we're seeing it around quite a bit, with a lot of celebrities choosing to wear this trend.

What to make of this trend? Will the bath robe trend become the new trench coat? It is hard to say. Nevertheless, it is easy to see the appeal of the bath robe trend. Coats cuts in this style are typically very cozy and comfy. If they are made from warmer materials, they make for perfect transitional pieces.  If you'r…
