The story of a dress (outfit post) / Priča o jednoj haljini (odjevna kombinacija)
































This dress arrived from New Zeland years before I was born. My mother was nineteen or twenty at the time. She wore it for a wedding and then for  years the dress was just hanging in the closet...until I rediscovered it. I paired it with heels I wore on my wedding day and a simple white clutch. The necklace I'm wearing is semiDIY ( I combined a necklace with a broken earring), while the hair accessory (fascinator) is all DIY.

Ova je haljina stigla iz Novog Zelanda godinama prije moga rođena. Moja majka je imala devetnaest ili dvadeset godina tada. Nosila ju je na neko vjenčanje i onda je haljina godinama visila u ormaru...dok je ja nisam ponovo otkrila. Nosila sam ju s petama s mog vječanja i jednostavnom bijelom torbicom. Ogrlicu koju nosim napravila sam kombinirajući slomljenu naušnicu i ogrlicu koju sam imala, a ukras za kosu je kao što sam već napomenula u potpunosti moj rad.

  3. Look at them sex legs! Ivana, you look amazing! I can't believe the dress is so old...it looks like it could be in the shops right now. And I love how you paired it with those fab heels. You look like a hot girl stranded on the side of the road waiting for an equally hot guy to fix your broken car :D

  6. E ovakve priče o odjeći obožavam! :) A ja sam jučer bila uvjerena da se radi o super majici, kad ono pojavi se fantastična haljina! :) Mislim da mi dugo nisi ovako predobro izgledala, sjajno ti stoji, cipele su divne...ma šta da više kažem? Glasam za još ovakvih haljina :D

  18. What a beautiful dress with a wonderful story behind it. I do love to wear such things a lot, these precious rarities from the past hold memories.
    I must say you look amazingly beautiful and feminine in this dress, you should wear such dress model more often, I suggest:) This design for a dress is so suitable for you, to my mind. And the pastel color of it is so appealing!
    I can't but mention that the town and mountains on the background are very attention catching too, the view is breathtaking!
    Wish you a blessed day ahead!

  49. Hi Ivana. Firstly I want to compliment you on looking so sweet, cheery and carefree in a pink dress. Probably it had been winter for too long and I often see you in winter or dark shades. I can see how summer is so inviting to you all. Over here, it's soooooooo hot and humid. Next, I can't believe that little wonderful story behind the dress. It's a vintage! And wow... it was your mum's dress in the closet and you rediscovered it and brought it back to life! Pretty shoes too!

  51. What a glorious dress, worn, loved, forgotten and inherited. I love it with the silver accessories, its bang up to date and yet timeless, too. The pastel pink looks wonderful with your raven locks and the lush greenery in the background. xxx

  55. Kako si mi lepa! <3 I pre nego što sam pročitala teskt, pomislila sam kako mora da je neka druga epoha kad je haljina pravljena, danas nema takvih. Savršena je, kao iz starog Holivuda i još u kombinaciji sa tim divnim sandalama, svim ostalim detaljima i tim mestom... preoduševljena sam, zaista! :)

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…

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.
