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.

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…
