Zadar/ Zara (photography post)


What to say about Zadar? It's stunning city for one, absolutely stunning. It is also known under the name Zara. Like most Dalmatian coastal cities, it's very old so history lovers (as tourists often are) should feel right at home. Plenty of sight, lovely beaches, vicinity of many islands....this town just has it all.

The first photo you see I had taken a few years ago and you can actually see a sea organ (little holes- pay attention). Architect who constructed it was indeed a man of rare talent because hearing the sea play (and you sure can hear it) is one of a time experience. On the photo below you get even better view. 


One interesting fact about Zadar is that it was burned to the ground by the crusaders in the 13th century (November 2012 to be precise). That was the first time (and the last I believe) that the crusaders had destroyed a christian town. What was the reason? Venice asked them to do it because Zadar was an important port and they didn't wanted competition in the sea trade. In return it was said they provided them with ships to the holy land for free. It was the first major attach of the Fourth crusade and not an honorable start of it. The pope forbidden the crusaders to do it, but they paid no attention to him. Anyway, I could tell you a great deal more about Zadar but as I plan to write about it again (and again) this will be all for now. 





Thank you for reading...Hope you liked it, for I will write about Zadar again. xoxo

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…
