Maxi dress (outfit post) / Duga haljina (odjevna objava)

What says summer more than a maxi dress? You might have another clothing item in mind, but there is no disputing the fact that a nice summer maxi dress is one of the most practical choices when the days get warmer. Besides offering protection from the sun, a good summer maxi dress is easy to layer (and hence to dress up and down) and serves like an infusion of style and effortless chic. In other words.....What is there not to love? 


Što više kaže ljeto od duge haljine? Možda imate neki drugi odjevni predmet na pameti, ali ne može se osporiti da je lijepa ljetna duga haljina jedan od najpraktičnijih izbora kada dana postanu topliji. Osim što nam nudi zaštitu od sunca, dobra ljetna haljina se lako nadograđuje (i nosi u dotjeranim i ležernim kombinacijama), a služi kao prava infuzija stila i onog dojma da se niste trudili. Drugim riječima....Što tu ne voljeti?

Have you found your ideal summer dress yet? I got this one a few summers ago for practically nothing. It was on a discount because as the saleslady said, it was too long for anyone who tried it on. A maxi dress that is not only long enough for me but is also long enough for me to wear with heels? My God, looks like my prays have been answered.

 Just for the record, this is the only true maxi dress in my closet. Other maxi dresses that I have purchased are more midi dresses on me, which is fine because I do like the midi lenght but still I felt like I won a jackpot when I managed to score this one.

Jeste li još pronašli svoju idealnu ljetnu haljinu? Ja sam ovu kupila prije par ljeta za praktički ništa jer je bila na popustu pošto je bila preduga svima koji su je probali, bila je rekla prodavačica, a ja sam se mislila....ljetna duga haljina koje ne samo da je dovoljno duga za mene nego je dovoljno duga da je mogu nositi i s petama? Bože moj, izgleda da su mi molitve ispunjene. 

Samo za napomenuti, ovo je jednina prava maksi haljina u mom ormaru. Ostale duge haljine koje imam su više dužina do listova na meni, što je u redu jer volim tu dužinu, ali ipak mi je bilo jako drago kada sam naletjela na ovu haljinu.


Thank you for your visit! Hvala na posjeti!

  9. Summers are made for dresses no ;) This maxi dress looks lovely on you and the sheer floral has such a wonderful summery feel to it. I'm still looking for my perfect maxi dress. All of mine are midi length which I prefer since they're just easier to walk in :)

  16. Beautiful, Ivana! What a wonderful find - it was waiting for you, my dear! I am so happy to see more and more dresses and skirts on women in the US - it was not the case at all when I first moved here in 2002. Even 4-5 years ago, it still wasn't. Now yes, especially in Summer, women wear dresses, often maxi dresses, just about everywhere. xxx

  17. Obožavam čipku i predivna mi je na ovoj haljini, još bijela = savršena za ljeto! Baš se čini dugačka, mislim da bi se meni vukla kao vjenčanica haha.. Sviđa mi se kako si ju oživjela s pink i žutom :)

  32. You must be really tall! I don't wear heels all the time now, but it is very glamorous to see maxis long enough to be worn with heels. Your maxi looks SO good on you! I love the puffy sleeves, the color, the lace. I would love this outfit for myself :P

    I look short in my photos, but I am not. My legs are shorter than my torso, so a skirt would look long on me but not dresses.

    Maxis are great for summer, indeed.

  33. So happy you were able to find that pretty dress, dear. It has a very sweet and precious look to it. And you may think I am silly, well you probably already did anyway ;), but seeing the dress reminded me of the curtains in my grandmother's house. The pattern is very close. Very nice memory. OK, now back to a comment that a normal person might leave; that top is a fun and bright color, perfect with your lovely complexion. You are so beautiful sweetie! Wishing you a happy Thursday xoxo

You combined it so lovely, with the complete outfit you are the summer in person! And I think it is also summer in your country as we have even here in Bavaria during the day more than 30 °C.

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…
