My creations (inspired by blue) / Mojih ruku djelo(nadahnuta plavom)



Do you know that I make jewelry? I haven't written much about it on the blog but perhaps in the future I will. I might do some DIY posts (as well as write about different techniques) if you're interested. Anyhow, today I'm presenting you with a little sample of my work: two of mine necklaces that are inspired by the colour blue. The first one has hand painted flowers made from fimo and that one can be worn during winter months as well, white the second one is distinctly for summer, the focus of it being natural materials (stones and shells I have collected on the beach). Both of them are very light on the neck and easy to combine with different clothes. I'm not sure  they can be called statement peaces, as they are of medium size, but they are definitely unique. Until now, I have never repeated myself, every necklace I have made is unlike any other I have made. Naturally, in the future I might do it, for example I might design a particular necklace that I like so much that I would like copy it. 

Znate li da izrađujem nakit? Nisam baš puno pisala o tome na blogu, možda samo usputno spomenula, ali ako vas zanima mogu pisati više o tome, mojim iskustvima i različitim tehnikama koje sam isprobala te napraviti neke "uradi sam" postove. Danas vam pokazujem mali uzorak svojih radova, dvije ogrlice koje su nadahnute plavom bojom. Prva ima ručno obojane (tempera+ lak ako se dobro sjećam) cvjetove od fima i nju se može nositi u bilo kojoj sezoni, dok je druga baš predviđena za ljeto, jer je naglasak nekako na  školjkama i kamenjima koje sam prikupila na plaži. Obje su ogrlice jako lagane, ne pritišću vrat, nisam sigurna da li spadaju u one velike ogrlice koje su u modi već neko vrijeme, jer su više srednje veličine, ali su sigurno jedinstvene, jer mi je uvijek bio običaj ne ponavljati se i ne raditi po kalupima, nijedna ogrlica koju sam dosada napravila nije nalik nekoj drugoj.  Naravno, u budućnosti možda baš pronađem neki oblik koji mi najviše odgovara, osmislim nešto baš posebno, neku ogrlicu koji želim izraditi više puta.

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…
