another DIY necklace / još jedna ogrlica koju sam napravila

I'm back in Mostar and happy to say that the weather improved significantly. I did end up with a cold as a result of the sudden weather changes, but I'm not complaining because it was my own choice to spend entire days outdoors facing the freezing wind. Besides, I quite enjoyed it (photographs of windy Split coming up soon).  Now, about the outfit. I wore this yesterday when we stopped for coffee after grocery shopping and right before my favourite part of day- preparing lunch. Ok, I admit maybe eating lunch is my favourite but I do like cooking as well. This vintage skirt I often wear with this jacket, it seems the right thing to do, being high waist and all that. The bag is a treasured gift and the boots are from Peko. Last but not the least, a necklace that I made myself last Spring. To create this necklace, I handsewn these beads (plastic imitation crystals) onto recycled faux leather.

Vratila sam se u Mostar i drago mi je reći da se vrijeme znatno popravilo. Istina, malo sam se prehladila zbog svih ovih vremenskih promjena, ali neću se žaliti jer je bio moj vlastiti izbor biti po cijele dane vani na burnje vrijeme i baš sam uživala u tome (uskoro stižu slike splitske bure). Sada, što se tiče odjevne kombinacije. Nosila sam ovo jučer kada smo pili kavu nakon odlaska u spizu (tj. u dućan) i neposredno prije mog najdražeg dijela dana- kuhanja ručka. Dobro, možda mi je jedenje ručka ipak najdraže, ali volim i kuhati. Što se tiče kombinacije, ima tu posebnih komada. Ovu suknju  obično nosim s ovom jaknom, čini mi se kao ispravan izbor, jer tako dolazi do izražaja visoki struk. Torba je dragi poklon, a čizme su iz Peka. Ogrlicu sam sama napravila prošlog proljeća tako što sam ušila ove plastične imitacije  kristala na recikliranu umjetnu kožu.

  33. these are fantastic photos, but my fav is the last one. gosh, you look so beautiful in this outfit. i think i see your boots from one of your last posts here - this skirt is the right combo to this shoes. i like this a lot!!! colourwise is this a perfect match.

    but i think you "missed" a belt - i think that would look great on this skirt/shirt combo. And yes, i see another great diy necklace on you - you had really a talent for this!!!

    Bye.

    1. you mean a belt on the skirt or over the jacket. I think that a belt worn on a skirt would look nice but not if I would wear it over this jacket.

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…
