A painting and an outfit--- Slika i odjevna kombinacija




IWD outfit

coat: Tally Weijl, leather jacket: Tally Weijl, pants: Uzor, boots: Peko

Here is a new oil painting that I have made on request. I made it in a hurry, but I still like it, the tree branch looks kind of surreal and that is what I was going for (Did you know that in Latin a tree branch is called a ramus...Now, isn't that a pretty word?). The rest of my paintings are in one gallery where they will be sold or maybe they won't be, we'll just have to wait and see. There are always things to put on walls in my home, as I have many framed photographs, so the house doesn't feel empty. Home decorating always keeps me entertained. In today's post, you can also see what I have worn on the International Women's Day (that is when the photographs were taken). Low heels shoes are my alternative to flats and these boots from Peko have proven to be quite comfortable. These two last photographs are kind of funny because I didn't realize I was being photographed, hence the  surprised look on my face.

Evo novog ulja na platnu kojeg sam naslikala za nekoga tko me zamolio. Radila sam ga u žurbi, ali ipak mi se sviđa kako je grana ispala, ne baš realno i pomalo fantazijski, što sam i pokušala (baš mi se sviđa latinski izraz za granu ramus. Jedna od onih riječi koje su nekako lijepe po sebi) Ostatak mojih slika je u jednog galeriji, gdje će se možda prodati, a možda i neće, morati ćemo pričekati i vidjeti. Uvijek imam nešto za staviti na zidove u kući, uokvirila sam brojne fotografije, tako da zidovi nisu prazni. Uvijek me veseli uređivanje doma.  U postu također možete vidjeti što sam nosila na dan žena jer su od tada fotografije. Niske pete su moja alternativa skroz ravnim cipelama, a ove čizme iz Peka su se pokazale jako udobnim. Malo su smiješno ispale ove dvije zadnje fotografije jer nisam skužila da me netko slika.

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…
