WIWT/ što sam danas nosila

















This is pretty much how I dress when temperatures get below zero Celsius. Being warm is all that is important and from head to toe, every clothing item was selected with the sole purpose of keeping little me warm, including dr. martens boots (that I didn't wear for a while and) that must one of few shoes that can be worn with two pairs of very thick socks. Today I picked up a few books that I have been planing to read for a while. First, The Autobiography of Martin Luther King. One of my dear friends once send me a few YouTube links with Martin Luther King interviews and said really pay attention to this. I think it was just than that I realized what a force this man was...just watching that first interview made me teary eyed. I've started to read the autobiography tonight and all I can say is that I'm very impressed so far. I'm also really looking forward to reading two other books I took with me, Paradise by Toni Morrison and American Pastoral by Philip Roth. Both of these writers I hold in high esteem for many reason, but if I had to name one of the reasons I would say,  Roth for his brutal honesty and Morrison for her incredible  courage. Speaking of books, recently I finished The Prodigal Daughter by Jeffrey Archer and was left somewhat disappointed. Have you read that one? I really liked the beginning but I guess I was just hoping for something more towards the end. However, when you reread a book you'll hardly ever get disappointed. I've been rereading the fairy tales of Ivana Brlić Mažuranić again ( I do that annually) and it's pure magic every time.

Ovo je otprilike kako se odijevam kada temperature padnu ispod nule. Važno mi je jedino da mi je toplo i od glave do pete, svaki odjevni predmet je izabran samo u tu svrhu, uključujući marte koje nisam dugo nosila i koje su jedne od rijetkih cipela koje se mogu nositi sa dva para jako debelih čarapa. Danas sam pokupila par knjiga koje se već dugo spremam pročitati. Prvo, Autobiografiju Martin Luther Kinga.  Jedna moja draga prijateljica mi je jednom poslala nekoliko YouTube linkova s intervjuima Martin Luther Kinga uz napomenu da stvarno obratim pozornost. Mislim da sam tek tada shvatila kakva je sila bio taj čovjek... Zasuzile su mi oči nakon  gledanja samo prvog intervjua. Počela sam čitati autobiografiju večeras i sve što mogu reći je da sam jako impresionirana zasada. Jako se veselim i čitanju dviju drugih knjiga koje sam ponijela sa sobom, a te su Raj od Toni Morrison i Američka Pastorala od Philipa Rutha. Oba ova pisca jako cijenim iz puno razloga, a ako bi morala izdvojiti neki, rekla bi Rutha zbog njegove brutalne iskrenosti i Morrison zbog njene nevjerojatne hrabrosti.  Govoreći o knjigama, nedavno sam završila Izgubljenu kći Jeffrey Archera i ostala sam pomalo razočarana. Jeste li pročitali tu? Jako mi se svidio početak, ali izgleda da sam imala previše očekivanja što se tiče kraja.  No, kada čitate iznova neku knjigu rijetko ćete se razočarati. Ja sad ponovo čitam bajke Ivane Brlić Mažuranić (radim to svake godine) i uvijek je to čista čarolija.

  11. Istina je da je na minus 12 8koliko je danas u Zagrebu) teško biti fashion i misliti o modi! Ja svoju pernatu jaknu ne mogu zakopčati već jedino onaj sivi kaput pa se omotavam šalovima i kapama i svime šta pod ruku dođe! :) Kaput ti je odličan!

    1. i tebi sve naljepše:)...mogu misliti kako je na minus 12, ali nije sada ni u Mostaru puno toplije... iako je južnije, jutra su prehladna i razlika u temperaturi preko dana i večeri je baš velika. Ipak nadam se da će ovo zahlađenje konačno pobiti sve one viroze koje su nas sve mučile, ja sam svaku virozu ove godine pokupila od nećaka i druge djece s kojom sam bila u kontaktu.

  13. Apsolutno se slažem s tobom po pitanju niskih temperatura, najvažnije je da ti je toplo. Ja već tri dana šetam okolo u istoj kombinaciji jer su mi to najtopliji komadi u ormaru, onda još navučem jaknu sličnu tvojoj, jako sličnu kapicu i šak od kojeg mi se jedva glava vidi. Kome smeta nek ne gleda :))

  17. Wow...it is really cold in your neck of the wood. Stay warm!! MLK was a powerful and strong man, I didn't know how scared he was until I read some of the interview articles talking about it, yet he still fought for our rights. Amazing men he was.

    1. With years, I realized that is the real courage, feeling scared but doing the right thing because it is the right thing. Every man or woman who loves must feel fear for those whom he loves, so no great man is without fear. What I found particularly interesting in the first 100 or so pages that I have read so far is the combination of spiritual and intellectual strength that he applied to every aspect of his life...so inspiring! Happy New Year too!

  22. Dear Ivana, so you are reading a lot at the moment, I'm doing the same. The lecture I have chosen is not only pleasant, one of the titles is "One grave in White Russia" and it's about the 2nd World War. Not so funny to read but I learn a lot and appricate my life how it is even more.

    Here in Bavaria it snowed nearly without pause in the last days and therefore it is white and cold outside. So to wear warm and comfy looks like you makes sense :) Your look would be also perfect for the temperatures we have at the moment and you look fresh and beautiful in your look.

    Dear Ivana, I wish you a wonderful last evening this year and only the best for the New Year. Hopefully everything will go well in the end for you, especially with a job. You are so often in my thoughts and I thank you so much for all the wise, intelligent, interesting and kind comments you leave on my blog. I appreciate each of them.

    Happy New Year!

  23. So you look stunning even in cooler weather, how? I look so bad during winter months (even though it is my fave season!) I have on a big coat, like 2 pairs of a pants, hats, mits, scarf over my face (haha) and then my hood! But here you look just beautiful and still look warm! Just love this jacket you are wearing :)

  26. Those are some heavy reading, Ivana. I've never successfully finished reading autobiographies, it somehow never catch my interest. I've always been a fiction reader and embarrassing I also like YA books. LOL! I guess a part of me never grew up. :-)

  35. I'm longing to read books of my own choice but feeling claustrophobic with the set texts I have to read for next term!
    That collection of fairy tales sounds magical. At home we have a large collection of fairy and folk tales and I love to return to them from time to time.
    Wishing you a wonderful new year. Keep warm in those sub-zero temperatures. (Love how the horizontal stripes painted on the buildings behind you make everything look so much brighter).

  37. I really suck at reading novels. I'm not proud of it. I'm trying to get into them, but I am a lot faster reading non fiction. I do like autobiographies and biographies though. I read Einstein's, and it was kind of funny. Speaking of, I love watching documentaries too! I'm glad I found a man who loves documentaries and biopics. We geek out together. :) I'll keep these novels in mind though. There is a new movie coming out about MLK, too.

    Nice yellow background and yellow bag!

    1. I like both fiction and non fiction...right now, I'm trying to read more non fiction because my obsession with literature sometimes can get a bit out of hand...I'm slight worried sometimes how well I remember every single event and character in every novel that I've read but I forget what I need to get from supermarket or something of the sort.

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…

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…
