I watched the spinning starts, grateful, sad and proud, as only a man who has outlived his destiny and realizes he might yet forge himself another, can be.Roger Zelazny, Isle of the Dead
Gledao sam zvijezde koje su se vrtjele, zahvalan, tužan i ponosan, kao što može biti samo čovjek koji je proživio svoju sudbinu i shvaća da bi si mogao skovati novu.Roget Zelazny, Otok Mrtvih

These photographs were taken in front of my old elementary school. I used to be always late for class, despite the fact that I lived only 100 m away from the school. We were all late- all the little girls from my building because we would always wait for Neta- and she never got anywhere on time. Have you always noticed that in any group of young girls, one of them is always a princess (or perhaps better said a queen)? Fortunately, not very often does this reign results in something negative, as described in the Cat's eye (one of those novels that have become a part of me and I almost feel like I've lived trough all of that myself). Most of the times, it's just kids stuff and the source of funny story to be remembered and retold many many times.

It is strange feeling going by your old elementary school- those days are so vivid in memory yet somehow very remote. For the last week or so,  I have had this feeling that I have suddenly aged ten years, so maybe it is appropriate that I feel like examining some old memories. Funny how the early memories stay with us. As Margaret noticed (in the novel) often we forget those memories in our teen years but they all come back to us with time, perhaps more so as we get older.

Ove fotografije su snimljenje ispred moje stare osnovne škole. Uvijek sam kasnila na nastavu, iako nisam živjela ni sto metara od škole. Sve smo kasnile, sve djevojčice iz moje zgrade jer smo sve čekale Netu koja nikad nije stizala nigdje na vrijeme. Jeste li primjetili kako u svakoj grupi djevojčica ima jedna koja je uvijek princeza (ili bolje rečeno kraljica)? Srećom, ta vladavina rijetko ima negativne posljedice kao što su opisane u brilijatnom Cat's Eye (koliko znam nije preveden kod nas još pa nema smisla da prevodim naslov kad ne znam kakav će biti, roman je meni bio odličan baš mi se urezao u psihu imala sam osjećaj).Većina vremena, to su samo dječje igre i izbor smiješnih priča kojih ćemo se sjećati i prepričavati ih puno puta.

Čudan je osjećaj prolaziti kraj stare osnovne škole, ti dani tako živi u sjećanju, a ipak tako udaljeni. Zadnjih tjedan dana, imam neki osjećaj da sam ostarila deset godina odjednom, tako da je možda prikladno da imam potrebu prekapati po starim sjećanjima. Čudno je kako rane uspomene ostaju sa nama. Kao što je Margaret u romanu primjetila često ih zaboravljamo kao tineđeri ali sve se one vraćaju sa vremenom, možda sve više kako smo sve stariji.

  1. The dress is beautiful, and those sandals are lovely. The blazer adds a sweet touch to this already stylish outfit.

  3. I remember my elementary school days too :)). Very pretty black dress you have on. I do like to revisit my school days and this dress is a stunning way to show how you have matured gracefully and grown from that. You look beautiful!

  5. Slažem se. Moja kuma živi skoro pored naše osnovne škole i svaki put kad prođem pored osetim nešto jako čudno što sa godinama postaje nekako sve čudnije... To je valjda normalno...
    Predivno izgledaš, baš nekako damski! ;)

    1. hvala, možda damski izgledam jer sam haljinu ukrala iz maminog ormara. Inače ne kradem odjeću koju nosi sada, samo onu iz mladih dana, ali u ovom slučaju bila sam prisiljenja jer sam morala duže ostati, a nisam ponijela ništa sa sobom.

  6. Sjajno izgledaš, haljina ti baš divno pristaje! :)
    Moram priznati da mene više taj neki čudan osjećaj pogodi kad prođem pokraj svoje gimnazije, kraj osnovne gotovo ništa ne osjećam. Valjda sam ja čudna :)

  10. Ma gle ti nje, koji komad! :) Haljina je divna i stoji ti divno! Nemoj je ni vratiti mami! :)

    Ja imam isti osjećaj kada prođem pored osnovne! Iako se stvarno malo toga sjećam, tu je onaj osjećaj djetinje bezbrižnosti koja je tako davno prošla... a nekad bi dao sve za pet minuta iste!

  14. Ova haljina, znaci ova haljina je fantazija! Stoji ti savrseno (rekla bi prosto u ovoj situaciji-presavrseno, kad bi ta rec postojala). Izgledas tako lepo i zenstveno i nemoj da izlazis iz ovakvih modela bilo leto ili zima. Lako se nadje i neka zimska u ovom fazonu od trikotaze. Videla si mozda u prethodnom postu i link za moj novi Facebook profil gde su sve sami krojevi i nacrti, pa ces sigurno naci i neki model slican ovom. Kiss

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. 








DIY PROJECTS 
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…
