Of all the things a man may do, sleep probably contributes most to keeping him sane.

“Of all the things a man may do, sleep probably contributes most to keeping him sane. It puts brackets about each day. If you do something foolish or painful today, you get irritated if somebody mentions it, today. If it happened yesterday, though, you can nod or chuckle, as the case may be. You've crossed through nothingness or dream to another island in Time.” 
― Roger ZelaznyIsle of the Dead

....yes, my dear Zelanzny but there are things that even a good night of sleep cannot cure. There are longings that cannot be fulfilled, dreams that cannot be forgotten and sorrows that cannot be cured. Still, you're right about sleep. Nothing like a good night sleep to make you feel like a brand new person.

"Od svega što čovjek radi, spavanje vjerojatno  najviše pridonosi očuvanju njegovog metalnog zdravlja. San stavlja zagrade oko svakog dana. Uradite li nešto blesavo ili bolno danas, iznervirate se ako to netko spomene, danas. No, ako se dogodilo jučer, možete se nasmijati ili kimnuti glavom, kako već bude.Prošli ste kroz ništavilo sna to drugog otoka u Vremenu." Roger Zelanzy, Otok mrtvih

  13. Very elegant and beautiful outfit. So sunny pics)

  14. Love the pencil skirt. Very trendy and you look awesome.

  15. Hello Ivana,

    great outfit! But, please dont wear your belt over the blazer - i didnt match, in my eyes. That looks way better if you wear this, like you do on the last pic.

    By the way: i like your first pic. i shot sometimes the same pics, if i´m sitting on a bench and relaxing. I thing i dont had such a pic on my blog, but i can send you some per mail, if you want.



    1. sure, send them to me, I would love to see them:)

      Yes, maybe the yellow belt isn't the best match with this blazer. I like to play with colour and take risks. Sometimes risks pay off and sometimes not, but that is how we learn what looks good on us. In this case, the belt is not the best choice with this elegant outfit.

    2. ok, i search for this in my pic archive - i will mail you then the pics. please give me a little time.

      yes fashion can be sometimes a little bit "risky". But i think that is the way of fashion: i love the challenge to find every day the right outfit. sometimes i go surely a little bit to far and worn crazy stuff, that women never would wear.

      But i´m jennifer - do what i´m doing...;-)



    3. yes, I should be a bit risky.

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…
