summer nights (outfit post)/ ljetne noći (odjevna kombinacija)

Poem by  Croatian poet Antun Branko Šimić, translation by me:


and after that
on your knees between disaranged pillows
you think
of death

My child!
I will not soothe you with new kisses
and make you forget
I let the tears wash down
your pale face

you heart that beats desperately now 
will become calm

when you meet your young friends
with dark shadows under your eyes
they will be wondering your young friends
but none of them
will find out
hidden in the corners of your eyes
a pale star

Don't cry my child: The winter night is full of blue
and my steps will be covered by deep white snow.

Antun Branko Šimić:


I poslije toga
na koljenima izmeđ razbacanih jastuka
na smrt

O dijete!
Ja neću da te novim poljupcima smirim
u zaborav
Puštam da ti blijedim licem suze teku

smirit će se tvoje srce
koje sada očajalo tuče

kad stupiš među svoje mlade druge
s dvije tamne sjenke ispod očiju
začudit će se tvoje mlade druge
Al nijedna neće moći da otkrije
skrivenu udno tvojih očiju
blijedu zvijezdu

Ne plači dijete: noć se plavi zimska
Za mojim stopama će zapadati bijel visok snijeg

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…
