What was I thinking? (outfit post)/ Što mi je bilo? ( odjevna objava)











dress/haljina: no name, sandale/ sandals: Peko, bag/torba : second hand (vintage), watch/sat: vintage

What was I thinking? In my defense, this outfit looked much better in my head. I've worn this floral dress a number of times and you must have noticed it for it was featured quite often on this blog. Not surprisingly, I wanted to try something new, something other that pairing it with another pair of heels. I mean doesn't the pink shade of these leggings match the pink floral print on this dress perfectly or what?  Yet, somehow it just doesn't work. That's my impression after seeing these photographs anyway. Maybe I'm also influenced by the fact that something bad happened on this seemingly innocent April day. What are your thoughts on this one?  Is this outfit a big no...or is it ok?

Što mi je bilo? U mojoj glavi ova je odjevna kombinacija izgledala sasvim pristojno, samo ću to reći u svoju obranu. Nosila sam ovu cvjetnu haljinicu puno puta, često je bila i na blogu i sigurno ste je primijetili. Nije iznenađujuće da sam htjela probati nešto novo, nešto same promjene cipela na petu. Roza nijansa gega (tajica) odlično se slaže s rozim cvjetovima na haljini zar ne? No, opet nešto nije kako treba. Barem je takav moj dojam kada pogledam ove fotografije, a možda je utjecalo na mene i to što mi se svašta nešto loše izdogađalo tog naizgled nevinog i sunčanog travanjskog dana. Što vi kažete? Da ili ne ovome?

  2. Da!
    Možda torbica u nekoj drugoj svijetlijoj nijansi, da sve bude u skladu s prirodom i živosti koja nas sad iščekuje van domova, ali super ti je kombinacija! :)


    PS. ja sam isto iz Splita :D

  4. I think you look adorable, outfit and hair. Of course I am a fan of your beautiful legs in those bright leggings. That is the type of thing I enjoy so much :) The dress and leggings work great together to me. So sorry for whatever challenge you encountered that day. Such a shame as you look so happy here. Hope all is well sweet lady!

  7. Ja moram priznati da mi roze tajice uopće ne smetaju na ovu kombinaciju :) Da mogu birati, rađe bi bez njih ali ne izgledaju uopće loše! :)

    1. mislim da je možda haljina malo preduga za njih, ova je malo veći broj pa mi je sve skupa malo šlapavo, ali ova roza boja mi se sviđa, morat ću smisliti neki drugi način da ih nosim.

  11. Oh no, I hope everything is ok!
    I don't think there is anything wrong with this outfit, on the contrary, those leggings go amazingly with your dress!!! I love the whole look AND how you.did your hair!!x

  14. Možda su helanke ipak višak iako mi se najiskrenije dopada ceo utisak koji ostavlja kombinacija. To je ono kad se sve slaže ali nešto ne štima :) U svakom slučaju, imala sam i ja takve kombinacije, haljina i helanke pa onda još patike na sve to, ali to se nosilo pre 10-ak godina pa kao nema veze :D

  16. I really like the combination of the dress and leggings together, and how you've done your hair! :)

    The only thing that I might change would be the shoes - maybe ones without an ankle strap, like some pretty flats, as you have the line of the leggings and the line of the strap together. But honestly, I'm only saying that as you said there was something you didn't like and that's the only thing I could guess - it's a nice outfit! :)

  18. I think the outfit is absolutely fine Ivana. Ideal for a summers day. It looks nice and cool, though possibly needs flatter shoes depending on where you are walking...?

    If I am honest, I much prefer this kind of look to 'boyfriend' jeans.

  19. The dress is gorgeous, and I give the outfit a cute yes! Perhaps if you let your hair down, it would look even nicer!

  20. Kombinacija je sasvim ok, meni se dopada kako ti stoji. Ali ako ti nije dobar osecaj onda-skidaj helanke. Imam pun orman stvari koje cekaju godinama da ih iskombinujem sa necim pa da kombinacija bude idealna, jer mi sada nije dobar osecaj.

  23. I remember this beautiful dress! And I understand your wish to try some new variants to wear it. Dressing is about experimenting too, isn't it? I think these legging are fine with the dress, they are of such a nice bright colour and they make the dress look different, exactly what you wanted. The only thing, I would wear different shoes here, flats...maybe of sporty type. Then I think the look would be even more interesting.

  24. Love this beautiful outfit combo, Ivana, the dress is pretty and you wear it beautifully. The pink leggings are just like the cherry on top. I dunno why you think it didn't work, because this is one of your best so far, girl. It's girly, it's hot, it's chic and it's totally summer and it's YOU!

  26. I think the pink works very well with the pink flowers. I also don't think it's not bad, it works, and I'm not just saying it because, you know, I'm commenting. I wouldn't have commented if I didn't like it. I think leggings add a bit of a sporty chic to the outfit. The shoes...maybe I'd chosen a pair of Converse or flats )) That's about it. Take care, Ivana!

  29. E po naslovu sam sad očekivala neku totalnu strahotu, kad ono...sasvim simpatično :) Ja bi vjerojatno izbacila tajice jer je haljina baš lijepa i stvarno joj ništa ne treba, ali mi ovako svejedno ne smeta. Iako jako dobro znam taj osjećaj kad si u nečemu i ne osjećaš se dobro i imaš dojam da nešto ne štima, a zapravo ne znaš što.

    1. stvarno mi nešto ne štima, možda bi uz čizmice neke ili visoke patike možda čak i mogle proći gege, ali uz ove sandale ne ide nikako.

  32. Vidiš meni se baš sviđa kombinacija :) Možda bi bilo još bolje da je haljinica malo kraća pa da bude ono kao tunika, ali da ne filozofiram sad puno, meni je baš simpa outfit. Promijenila bih jedino torbicu jer mi je malo 'preteška' za ovu lepršavost i boje.

  33. sorry my dear, but i think this outfit is way over the top.
    you know i love leggings like you do, but this one is a big "NO". Why? Just the colour. i think this pink colour is just to loud. This oufit is ok on a 80 years motto-party, but for the public - i would say: no.

    Bye.

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…
