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.

Whether you're longing for spring to come asap or not, one thing is certain-  winter is not going  anywhere. The cold weather is not going to end up anytime soon, not in this part of the world. It's snowing in most of Europe and the weather is quite cold. What are we do to if not dress appropriately, and that means dress as warmly as possible? Not long ago I published a post about winter accessories that keep us warm. Today I'll be talking about one of them in particular and that would be the oversized scarf.  I've always loved big scarves and I have quite a few of them, some vintage, some I made myself. Lately, however it occurred to me that I should get one of those new trendy oversized ones, the kind that you can use as blanket. You know how much I love colour, right? Well, beige is no exception so I was happy to see it listed as one of the biggest trends this season. I picked up this beige oversized scarf for next to nothing in New Yorker. It's super cozy and …


Everyone knows that flowers make for a great prop, something very useful in these visual days. Moreover, in this time of social media, we are all looking for good photography props, aren't we? Bloggers, influences and what not, everyone wants to make their photographs pop. Flowers are a great way to do just that. Dried flowers are even better, because you don't have to worry about their expiry date. Dried flowers are also a great way to recycle (when you make your own) and preserve memories. I've been drying flowers for quite some time and there is really nothing to it. You can also buy dried flowers (or even fresh ones if you prefer). They are simply a perfect addition to flat lay photography.
Today I'll speak about creating 3D dresses on fashion illustrations. Now, you don't have to know how to do fashion illustration to try your hand at this. You can trace some of the fashion templates available online (be sure to make sure the author is o.k with that) or you c…


Writing this post took forever, and not just because I'm not exactly sure how many books I read in 2018. I did try to keep a track on goodreads but sometimes I forget to add books that I'm reading there. I'd say that I probably read around 80 books last year, give or take a dozen. I do love to read, as readers of my blog might already know or suspect. Here comes a list of my last year favourites. The list is written in no particular order. The links are not affiliated ( I tried to join Amazon affiliate program in the past but they rejected me saying that my blog doesn't have enough views so yeah it's all regular links). In cases of classics the books are linked to sites such as Project Gutenberg or Oxford University where you can find free copies. In case of modern works, I linked them up to my own blog posts (when relevant), Wikipedia or the authors' sites. 

I had a pretty good reading year, I'd say. Some of the books I read I actually discovered in my ow…
