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.

  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

WHAT DRESS TO CHOOSE THIS AUTUMN? SPECIAL OCCASION OUTFIT IDEAS

As I mentioned in one of my last post, I'm already thinking about what I might wear for all those festive occasions that are coming up. Autumn and Winter both have its fair share of festivities. Our social calendar can be quite busy this time of year with all the meetings, events, festivities, celebrations, family and work parties. Some of these social occasions come with a black tie dress code, so I decided to prepare some outfit ideas.  A bit of formal wear inspiration for  my readers. All of these photographs were taken the day before yesterday. We're enjoying a rather warm Autumn in Herzegovina but these outfits I'm sharing can be easily be adapted for colder weather. Just throw a warm coat or a blazer over them, and that would be that.  That's what I plan to do once it gets colder. Anyhow, all four dresses I'll be sharing with you today are from Rosegal. This is my second collaboration with this site, if you want you can have a look at my first one here. With…

How To Style A Grey Sweater Dress in Autumn? Outfit Proposal of the Day

HOW TO STYLE GREY FOR AUTUMN/WINTER?
I was just thinking how grey doesn't always get the credit it deserves. Sure, there are many enthusiasts of the colour grey, but even among those of us who like grey, there are many lessons to be learned. One of the mistakes we make when styling grey items is to forget that grey does come in so many shades. It's kind of obvious, but it's easy to focus on the classical grey tones and forget to explore this colour in all its complexity. Not to mention that styling the lighter shades of grey can be a great way to refresh our autumn/winter wardrobe. Sometimes it does seem to me that grey is one of the most underestimated colours out there. However, that all might change as grey has been trending a lot lately. For example, you can have a look at some of my runaways picks bellow. 
Neutral outfits composed of lighter shades are a great way to stay away from the typically dark outfit combos. I'm not saying there is anything wrong with dark …

Fashion Illustration Friday: Inspired by Colours of Autum

Time for another Fashion Illustration Friday talk. We'll talk autumn and share some new autumn inspired fashion illustrations & outfits. Autumn is a season with one of the most beautiful colour palettes. Just think about all those gorgeous gold and red leaves! Even the fruits of Autumn are visually stunning, for example the delicious and juicy fruits such as pomegranates and grapes. With so much to appeal to our senses, it's hard not to be appreciative of autumn. It is a stunning season indeed, so small wonder I was inspired to create some fashion art.
