'You're my angel and my damnation; in your presence I reach divine ecstasy and in your absence I descend to hell.' Isabel Allende, Daughter of Fortune

"Ti si moj anđeo i moje prokletstvo; u tvom prisustvu podižem se do božanske ekstaze, a kada te nema spuštam se u pakao. " Isabel Allende, Kći Sreće

Today I found myself immersed in Allende's novel Daugher of Fortune. However, this particular place made me think of another novel, Fevre Dream, one of my recent favourites. I wondered what it would be like to sail a river when it rains and the water lever raises.... Is it like the river pilots in the above stated novel explain, a matter of experience, of learning the river inch by inch? With time I realized that rivers have a beauty of their own, unlike that of the sea, but a beauty nevertheless and one of equal power.

I suggested picnic on this spot (featured on this blog recently here, here and here)  but the eating was done in car solely because of the rain. Still, it was a lovely feeling eating while the river was flowing before my eyes... beats watching TV. For some reason this outfit makes me feel a bit like Jack Sparrow. I can't say why, but it may have to do something with these pointy booties that always make me feel like a rock star...or it may have something to do with the books I've been reading lately. Who knows?

____________________________________________________________________

Danas me posve zaokupila Kći sreće Isabel Allende. No, ovo me mjesto podsjetilo na drugi roman, Grozničavi san, jedan od posljednjih favorita. Zapitala sam se kako bi bilo poloviti rijekom kada pada kiša i kada se razina voda podiže..Je li to kao što riječni piloti u spomenutom romanu objašnjavaju, stvar iskustva, učenja rijeke centimetar po centimetar? S vremenom sam shvatila da rijeke imaju svoju ljepotu, koja nije nalik onoj mora, ali je svejedno ljepota i to jednake moći.

Predložila sam piknik na ovoj mjestu ( ovako izgleda kad je sunčano) ali je objedovanje bilo u autu samo zbog kiše. Ipak, bio je lijep osjećaj jesti dok rijeka teče ispred tebe...bolje nego gledanje televizije. Iz nekog razloga ova me odjevna kombinacija podsjetila na Jack Sparrowa. Ne znam zašto, ali možda ima neke veze s ovim čizmicama u kojima se uvijek osjećam kao rock zvijezda. Možda to ima neke veze i sa knjigama koje čitam u zadnje vrijeme. Tko zna?

  4. That's such an interesting correlation. Fevre Dream is one of my favorites and now this river is all I'll imagine when I re-read it again!

  10. I'm in love with the location. The picture with the watermill is so similar to one of the pics in my current blog post, and the mountains in the background are so mystical - definitely better than TV!

    Your look is just as great though! I love how you belted the coat, and the boots are indeed pretty rock'n'roll :)

  14. Hehe, verovatno je sve po malo u pitanju! ;) Kaput je predivan, dobro mi došao isti takav :) Sviđa mi se kako nosiš maramu preko njega i spoj boja. I naravno mesto i ideja o takvoj vrsti piknika. Slažem se za reke, nekako kao da nisu dovoljno cenjene a i te kako imaju svoju moć i lepotu :)

    1. maramu sam kupila na odjelu za stolnjake...ali mekana je i topla i što se mene tiče to je veliki karirani šal koji sam posvuda tražila:)
      hvala na komentaru i drago mi je što se slažemo:)

  33. I didn't get Jack Sparrow's vibe here )) I like how you belted the coat, looks very stylish, I dont wear belts that often because I don't feel comfortable with them, and I don't find them slimming on me but it really works in your look, Ivana! Have a great weekend!

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…
