fashion illustration (over size coat)/ modna ilustracija (kaput za broj veći)

ja večeras ležim sam                                                         Tonight I'm laying alone
kao olovni vojnik                                                                like a lead soldier
blatan i ponižen                                                                   muddy and humiliated
na kraj svijeta odbačen                                                       cast away at the end of the world
u ljubavi i ratu pravila su ista                                                in love and war the rules are the same
pobjednik uzima sve                                                            the winner takes it all
milost ne daje                                                                       gives no mercy

Ptico malena                                                                         My little bird
nije za mene                                                                             I'm not meant to be with
netko kao ti                                                                              someone like you
meni  pregorki pelin                                                                  you're too bitter absinthe for me...*                                                                      

lyrics from a song of Croatian rock bend Prljavo kazalište


  1. I love panel construction coats. My mum has a vintage coat from the 40s cut from around 8 panels of fabric.
    I was also very struck by your honest, personal and reflective comment on my scoliosis poem. For both of us it is a life-long thing, even though mine is post-operative. The impact on my upper body is still very much part of me.

    1. I bet that vintage coat is gorgeous!

      The connection between the soul and the body is a complex one. Your poem captures that. I do (again) agree with what you have written now, the impact is always there, a part of us.

  2. Bonita inspiracion!! Un abrigo over size es una prenda muy combinable.

  3. This is lovely my dear!;)



  4. Che bello il tuo nuovo schizzo,mi piace anche tantissimo la frase con cui l'hai accompagnato! Caterina

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.

If you know me, you know that I'll grab every opportunity to don on a statement dress. Life is to short to wear boring dresses. Nothing is quite as dramatic as a statement red dress, am I right or what? I was planning on walking miles that night, so I paired my red dress with comfy shoes, a straw bag and a pink blazer (just in case if it gets windy). I'm a fan of wearing dramatic dresses with comfy shoes, it makes them stand out more- and it can make the outfit not only more comfortable but also fresh. I wore this red midi dress with ruffled sleeves for a date night in Chinese restaurant Asia in Split (HERE- one of my favourite places to grab Chinese food in the city). I had a lovely time dinning there with my significant other. I pretty much always order the same thing: home made noodles with veggies and dumplings. As always, the food was yummy. This restaurant is located in my old neighbourhood Split 3 (address: street Poljička cesta 39 ) and I definitely recommend paying it…


When we talk about travelling outfits, comfort is definitely something we need to consider. Everyone wants to be comfortable when travelling, right? As much as visiting a certain town or resort can be fun and relaxing, the process of getting there might be a little stressful. Comfort is definitely important. However, the thing is that everyone has a different definition of comfort. Some ladies might feel perfectly comfortable in a dress, while others might prefer the typical jeans and tee outfit formula. Sure, it makes sense to follow some rules. Opting for practical and utility wear might make your life easier when travelling. Similarly, wearing breathable, comfortable and natural fabrics in summer makes sense. However, what if you have a fabulous polyester vintage item you're dying to wear? You know, if that vintage polyester item makes you feel good, wearing it probably makes sense.
When it comes to summer travel style, being reasonable and practical is important. However, oft…

Ljubuški (Sights to See, Places to Visit / Znamenitosti za vidjeti, Mjesta za posjetiti)

What a lovely place this is!  Do you remember it? If you don't, don't worry because I'll leave you with two little reminders i.e. links to previous posts ( here and here).  Can you recognize it now? If you are a first time visitor, I don't mind repeating myself. This is Ljubuški, a small city in region of Herzegovina, country Bosnia and Herzegovina. These photographs were taken back in February but since the weather has been a bit on the chilly side lately, I don't feel weird about posting them now. I originally planned to post a book review to go along with this post, but I couldn't think of anything nice to say about the book in question, so I gave up. I reviewed it a long time ago on goodreads and all I can say after reading it again is that I feel the same way about it. The concept of this book is great but it is written so badly. End of story. How it managed to win an award for the best novel of the year is beyond me. Anyway, it hasn't been translated…
