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:)

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…

Fashion illustrations of the day (markers)

Hello darlings! How are you? Can you believe that February ends today? This month has just flown by. I know it's the shortest month in the year but still. Today I'm going to share 3 fashion illustrations and sketches with you. The medium for all of them is marker on paper. I don't work with markers that often, but sometimes it is good to try something different. The fashion sketches I'm sharing are all about 3 colours: purple, green and red. Spring is in the air, so this is my reflection on all those trends for the new season. The first illustration shows a girl wearing a purple and blue jumpsuit. The second illustration features a girl wearing a transparent green dress with a top and a skirt under that dress. The third illustration shows two girls in red gowns.


February Recap (art & DIY projects & outfits)

I've put a lot of effort into blogging this February, I hope it shows. As far as the content goes, February was similar to January, mostly a mix of my illustrations and outfit posts (here). This month I was full of positing ideas and I managed to make many of them happen. I feel pretty good about that. The only thing I feel bad about is making my blog monolingual and not using my other languages, but translating texts from English to other languages takes such a long time. It is so much easier to just write in English.  Hopefully, I'll manage to change that and make my blog multilingual again. I need to organize my time better. Fingers crossed. For March I already have a few posts prepared. You can expect more art (mostly fashion illustrations) & outfit posts. 

I shared two DIY projects in February, one about making a Barbie dress, the other was about how to paint a plant container. I don't have any DIY projects prepared for March, but I'm sure that I…
