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.

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…
