Illustration of the day / Ilustracija dana



watercolour / akvarel

Don't be overly proud! Your thoughts are not yours alone!
They live in others
We have all crossed the same paths in the darkness,
we have all wandered equally in the sign
of searching and all are equally admired.
With everyone you share something and many of you are the same.
And rememeber it has been so since the ancient times
And we all repeat ourselves, even the great and the pure ones,
like children that still don't know their names.*

                                        Tin Ujević, excerpt from a poem Brotherhood of Faces in the Universe  *my translation


Ne gordi se! Tvoje misli nisu samo tvoje!
One u drugima žive
Mi smo svi prešli iste putove u mraku,
mi smo svi jednako lutali u znaku
traženja, i svima jednako se dive.
Sa svakim nešto dijeliš, i više vas ste isti.
I pamti da je tako od prastarih vremena.
I svi se ponavljamo, i veliki i čisti,
kao djeca što ne znaju još ni svojih imena.


                                                  Tin Ujević, dio pjesme Pobratimstvo lica u svemiru

  12. Dear Ivana, what a wonderful and especially really true poem! This is exactly what I believe: sometimes we tend to believe we are the only one which are suffering but if you ask your counterpart then he/she will tell you also about really difficult and painful periodes in their lives ... I try always to keep this in my mind. Love as usual your illustration of today and your confidently strokes of your brush <3 Wish you a really good new week ahead!

AN AUTUMN OUTFIT AND A BOOK REVIEW (EAST WEST BY SALMAN RUSHDIE)

Hello darlings! It's suddenly gotten a lot colder here, but I still have one warm autumn styling proposal to share with you. I wore this cute neutral outfit while the sun was still shining bright. On that lovely sunny day, I decided to pair my white (authentic) folklore shirt with a striped mini, dark leggings and a dark green vest. I finished this look with my brown boots and a tartan belt. Besides this outfit, I will share another book review on my blog today. East West by Salman Rushdie also happens to falls into category of magic realism. I'm no stranger to Salman Rushdie,  I read Midnight's children a while back and I started but never finished Satanic Verses. This is the first time I read his short stories, though.  I really liked this collection and I can't wait to tell you all about it.

THE STORY OF MY OUTFIT- HOW I WORE IT BEFORE First, a few more words about my comfy but feminine styling. When you're looking for comfort, shoes are a good place to start. I…

KAFKA ON THE SHORE, A NOVEL BY HARUKI MURAKAMI (BOOK REVIEW & OUTFIT PROPOSAL)

Hello, my darlings! I will be sharing two things with you today: a book review and an outfit post. This cozy outfit proposal features two printed items: a printed scarf and a skirt. The bluish scarf was a gift from a friend and I like how it looks with this camel coat (another gifted item). The wool/silk printed skirt is old, a creation from fashion house Edi. You had a change of seeing this unique floral print on the blog here , here and here. Under the camel coat I have worn this white blouse and this red blazer.  I completed the outfit with a red beanie and high brown boots.  It has gotten colder in Croatia even on the shore. Speaking of the shore, Kafka on the Shore is the novel I will be reviewing today. 
MURAKAMI, A WRITER THAT REMINDS ME OF A CAT

10 STYLE LESSONS LEARNED FROM MALENA/ MONICA BELLUCCI

With summer being in full spring, I caught myself thinking about iconic summer outfits. Do you know what came to my mind? Costumes/outfits worn by Monica Belluci when she played Malena Scordia in an iconic Italian movie set on Sicily.  The costumes for that movie were designed by an acclaimed Italian costume designer Maurizio Millenotti and he outdone himself! Seeing that Malena is a historical movie, Maurizio choose quite timeless outfits and cuts that will ever go out of style. That fact makes Malena movie the perfect place to look for inspiration! Moreover, I feel that Monica Belluci's personal style is quite similar to Malena's (i.e. to the style of the character she is playing). There is definitely a Mediterranean lady feel about Malena/Monica Bellucci. What says summer better than Mediterranean and Sicily? Today we'll analyze Malena's style and see what we can learn from her. There is much to learn! Having analyzed looks that Monica wore in iconic Malena film, I…
