colours (outfit post) / boje (odjevna kombinacija)

Yesterday I watched a fascinating documentary about colours. Supposedly, lots of animals see more colours than we do...I do wonder what the world looks like for them...alas, I will never know. Perhaps in the future some mad scientist will invest cool glasses that allow us to see things we haven't seen before (in terms of colour) and the fashion world will never be the same....who knows what awaits us in the future?

...and speaking of colours I  love to watch birds. I'm always fascinating by how gorgeous they are, especially the colourful ones. Yesterday in the documentary I told you about they showed a bird that has feather pigmentation that comes off when soaked in water- luckily the natural water does her no harm ( the bird lives in rain forest), but if you dipped her feather in the pipe water, the colour would come off....Interesting how everything in nature is so perfectly balanced.

Once I read ( I think it was in Dylan Dog's comic books from all places) that bird watching is one of the most fascinating things you can do, but if you do it too much, you might go crazy. What animals do you love to watch? Cats are on my list too...if there is an animal that can be call stylish, it has to come from a feline family.

When in city, the most common bird to see is a pigeon. I appreciate them much more after I had watched a documentary called "pigeon genius" on the TV ...and besides pigeons are so romantic. I totally understand why the characters from Hakawati ( a novel by Rabih Alameddine you don't want to miss) are so crazy about them. Btw Hakawati  means a storyteller in you know any good hakawati?

This is what I wore the day before yesterday...This tee is a gift from my granny...isn't she the best? She was my favourite hakawati when I was a little girl. I adored stories about her childhood.

Jučer sam gledala neki zanimljivi dokumentarac o bojama na televiziji (hrt-u) i stvarno je zanimljivo kako puno životinja vidi više boja ( i na različite načine) nego mi...baš me zanima kako one to vide, ali nažalost neću nikada saznati...možda jednog dana neki znastvenik izmisli posebne naočale koje bi nam to omogućile i onda se modni svijet zauvijek promijeni... Uglavnom, bila je (u dokumenarcu) čak i neka ptica koja živi u prašumi, a kojoj se boja sa perja otapa ako ga stavite u vodu- ali ne u kišnicu, takva prirodna voda nije dovoljno lužnata da joj skine boje- zanimljivo kako je u prirodi sve savršeno usklađeno....a govoreći o bojama i pticama, volim oboje...promatranje ptica ( i drugih životinja) mi je jedna od najdražih zanimacija...

U gradu najčešće od ptica vidimo golubove, riđan ( da znam da se taj izraz najviše rabi za konja, ali mi je simpatičan) sa prve fotografije mi se baš dopao....Golubovi su tako romantične, a i jako pametne ptice ( što sam otkrila gledajući još jedan dobar dokumetarac Pigeon genious)....skroz razumijem one likove u Hakawatiju koji su bili zaljubljeni u njih...a tek ona slatka golubica, možda moj najdraži lik (aj neka netko pročita taj roman da imam sa kime pričati o njemu, molim vas;)

a sada, današnja kombinacija...majica je poklon od bake:) ona je moj najdraži hakawati:)

A few posts ago (yes, bloggers calculate time in post activity), I wrote about red accessories for winter but I also wanted to write about red clothing items you can wear this time of year. In fact, I was planning to write a big post about wearing red in winter but I realized that I need to split it in two because it was too long. Apparently, I have a lot to say about why wearing red in winter is a good idea. So, today I'll basically post the part two of my red in winter fashion musings. Red is a bold, energetic and dramatic colour. If you ask me, wearing red is a great way to invoke good luck in our new year. You can pair red with neutral colours to tone it down or with vibrant ones to make your outfits even more noticeable. Lunar Year festivities are a perfect time to embrace the red clothing items. Moreover, Valentine's Day is not too far off either. If you're looking for some winter red outfit inspiration, you have come to the right place. HOW TO WEAR RED IN WINTER?   My…


Hello dear readers, how's life treating you? It's time for another reading update on my blog. You guys know that I'm a bookworm and a reading addict, right? Today I have a couple of book reviews to share with you. I'll be reviewing four books (more precisely: two novels and two short story collections). It's a mixed crowd of writers that I'm reviewing, from Nobel winning Kazuo Ishiguro to some other well known authors. So, let's get started. Scroll down to read my opinion of these books.  THE BURIED GIANT, A NOVEL BY KAZUO ISHIGURO 5/5 Having seen a fascinating interview with mr. Ishiguro about this very book, I had high expectations for The Buried Giant. I'm happy to report that my expectations were fulfilled. Once again, Kazuo Ishiguro impressed me his subtle and beautiful writing. This novel is a masterpiece. The Buried Giant is very moving tale of an elderly couple in search for their lost past. Axl and Beatrix share a strong connection, but just lik…


With summer being in full spring, I caught myself thinking about iconic summer outfits. Do you know what came to my mind? Costumes/outfits worn by Monica Belluci when she played Malena Scordia in an iconic Italian movie set on Sicily.  The costumes for that movie were designed by an acclaimed Italian costume designer Maurizio Millenotti and he outdone himself! Seeing that Malena is a historical movie, Maurizio choose quite timeless outfits and cuts that will ever go out of style. That fact makes Malena movie the perfect place to look for inspiration! Moreover, I feel that Monica Belluci's personal style is quite similar to Malena's (i.e. to the style of the character she is playing). There is definitely a Mediterranean lady feel about Malena/Monica Bellucci. What says summer better than Mediterranean and Sicily? Today we'll analyze Malena's style and see what we can learn from her. There is much to learn! Having analyzed looks that Monica wore in iconic Malena film, I…
