DIY headpiece/ uradi sam ukras za kosu

headpiece: DIY (faux leather and imitation crystals), scarf/lace/ jumper/DIY pants: no name, sunnies: DM, boots: Peko

'You will be required to do wrong no matter where you go. It is the basic condition of life, to be required to violate your own identity. At some time, every creatures that lives must to so. It's the ultimate shadow, the defeat of creation. This is the curse at work, the curse that feeds on all life. Everywhere in the Universe.' Philip K. Dick, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep

This quote hunted me for the past two days. I think it's time to reread this novel.  Take it as a book recommendation if you will. I like books that I would describe as deep (like that word hasn't been misused like the rest of them), the kind that knock out the air out of my chest and make me feel a little bewildered, so if you know any that fit the description, feel welcomed to share.

" Zahtjevat će se od tebe da činiš pogrešno bez obzira na to gdje ideš. To je osnovni uvjet života, zahtjevanje kršenjenja vlastitog identiteta. U nekom trenutku, svako stvorenje koje živi mora učiniti tako. To je krajna sjena, poraz stvaranja. To je kletva na djelu, kletva koja se hrani svim životom. Svugdje u svemiru." Philip K. Dick, Sanjaju li androidi eletrične ovce?

Ovaj me citat proganja zadna dva dana. Mislim da je vrijeme da ponovo pročitam ovaj roman.  Volim knjige koje bi opisala kao duboke (kao da ta riječ nije zloupotrebljena kao ostale), koje mi  izbiju zrak iz pluća i ostave mi osjećaj blage izgubljenosti, pa ako znate za takve, slobodno recite.


  1. nice!

  9. Ho paura che in effetti sia un po' così, anche se ci sforziamo di essere più autentici possibile!

  10. You look lovely! And I absolutely love your illustrations, you are so talented!! X

  11. Presladak ukras. Eto kako običan konjski rep deluje drugačije i posebno ;)

    Kakav citat! Toliko istine ima u tome. I sama volim knjige koje spominješ mada isto tako ne bežim od nečeg laganijeg kad mi treba beg i razbibriga. Knjiga koja je mene najviše "zbunila" je Predeo slikan čajem (M.Pavić) pa ako nisi čitala, toplo preporučujem :)

  12. Deep quote!
    I'd love to see the headpiece closer. Looks so cool :)

  13. Looks great :)

  14. La citazione è molto bella e vera, non conoscevo quel libro. Tu sei molto carina nella foto!

    buon mercoledì

  17. I haven't read books lately so i have no ideas about such a book, but I do like that quote.
    E comunque tu l'italiano lo scrivi bene, allora sono io che sono pigra! :-)

  18. Bella citazione, dice molto con poche parole! Bella anche la foto ;)

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…
