My fashion illustrations (Why I love Winter?) / Moje modne ilustracije (Zašto volim zimu?)

Here are some of the fashion illustrations that I have made yesterday. No matter how much time I repeat that I'm more a summer person, the truth is that I adore winter clothes (and winter  fashion naturally). I love coats, long and short, oversize and tailored, black and colourful...(and don't get me started on puffers jackets, I've adored them since they fist appeared.)   

Evo neke od jučerašnjih modnih ilustracija. Koliko god ponavljala da sam više ljetna osoba, ne mogu poreći da obožavam zimsku odjeću (i modu naravno). Obožavam kapute, duge i kratke, nekoliko brojeva veće i one uske, crne i šarene ( a da nekažem ništa o perjanicama, njih obožavam otkada su se pojavile) .

Let's not forget... It is the winter that offers us endless possibilities when it comes to accessorizing. Variety of hats you can opt for in wintertime is impressive (berets, beanies, trilby hat etc) and so the same goes for gloves, scarfs and all other creative clothing items designed to make us warm. Accessorizing is always so much fun, isn't it?

 The mere fact that in winter you wear more clothes gives us more opportunity for layering. Not that laying in the sand, being smashed with waves while the Adriatic sings in your ear is anything short of paradise. Still, winter fashion is full of potential.

Nemojmo zaboraviti da nam zima dariva tolike modne dodatke. Raznolikost šešira za koje se možete odlučiti zimi je zadivljujuća ( francuzica, rastezljive kape raznih materijala, razne kape sa obodom), a isto vrijedi i za šešire i ostale kreativne odjevne predmete osmišljene da nas griju. Modni dodaci su uvijek zabavni, zar ne?

Sama činjenica da se zimi nosi više odjeće daje nam više mogućnosti za slojevito odijevanje. Ne da nije rajski ležati u pijesku dok te zapljuskuje  Jadran i sapće ti u uho. Ipak, barem što se mode tiče, zima je puna mogućnosti.


  1. Looks like you are really fond of drawing, it's such a calming and interesting deed, no doubt) I like layering as well, sometimes we have nothing else to do but to be dressed heavily, because the winter sometimes really harsh here in Russia:)
    Hope you have a great new year 2014. May all your dreams come true.. !

  2. Li trovo molto interessanti, soprattutto i modelli della seconda foto. Lucy

February recap / sažetak veljače

You have seen (more or less) what was February like for me. Now tell me... what was February like for you? Are you happy that it's already March or do you feel like time is flying too fast?Are you looking forward to the spring?

 As far as blogging goes, it seems that I have became more focused on fashion illustrations. In the next month the illustrations will have their place, but there will be more focus on DIY....or at least I think so, because I'm kind of heading in that direction. Apart from that, I have no plans. I have so many ideas when it comes to what I want to blog about, that I often have hard time deciding what not to include. As always, feel free to write about what you would like to see.

Vidjeli ste (više-manje) kako sam provela veljaču...sada mi recite, kakav je vama bio prošli mjesec? Veselite li se proljeću? Jeste li jedva dočekali ožujak ili vam je vrijeme prebrzo proletjelo? Ne zaboravite da nam možda i nije još stiglo i da ime za mjesec ožujak potječe od st…

Wearing the First Dress I Ever Made: A Grey Midi Dress

Here it is: the first dress I have ever made entirely by myself. I did make some summer dresses in the past, but I had sown them without a pattern and a sewing machine and at any rate I wouldn't call them very accomplished. I mean, they weren't nearly as polished as this dress and they were not nearly as complex to make. I'm very happy with how this dress turned out. I'm even happier I took this sewing course in the first place because now I can make more dresses like this one! If you remember my November highlights post, you might remember that I've mentioned how I've recently finished a beginning fashion tailoring and sewing course with designer Stanka Zovko. 

I promised to show you the dress I made for my course 'graduation'. At the end of this lovely sewing course, you get to choose not only what you're going to make, but also the material and the pattern.  The sewing pattern is typically chosen from one of the sewing magazines this designer has …

How To Style Animal Print? + An Autumnal Fairy Tale at Ethno Village Near Medugorje

With winter at our doorstep, I think it's important to make the most out of the left over autumn days. With that in mind, my husband and I payed another visit to our favourite (still not officially opened!) ethno village in vicinity of Medugorje. I wrote about this eco/ethno village a number of times, so if you want to know more (or just see more photographs) feel free to check out my old posts herehereherehere and here.  Autumn is Herzegovina is always gorgeous, and this year hasn't been an exception. We had some sudden weather changes and drastic changes of temperature, but I would still describe this autumn as a beautiful one. The Sunday this photographs were taken on was rather gorgeous, so I'm certainly glad we went on this little trip. I know I'm repeating myself, but I do cherish moments like this. Every time I step into this little village, I feel as if the time has stopped or rather like I have just travelled in time. It's such a charming place! I h…
