Deja vu (outfit post/ odjevna objava)

Deja vu. At this exact location in Split last Summer, we shot an outfit post with me wearing this moda in dress. I didn't plan it to happen but now it did, I find it amusing. Last time I paired this dress with sneakers and a denim vest. This time I paired it with a hat, wedges and a DIY necklace. Which version do you prefer? You can see the old outfit post here.

I loved shopping at Moda in (both for myself and others), but the store that was in my neighbourhood closed down and I can't track them down. They were a small low cost local bussiness, so maybe they didn't make it. I'm still looking out so if I find them again, I'll let you know. It is so hard to make it today in this world of mass production. I've tried starting a bussiness a few times and always I failed. C'est la vie.  To find peace, between the frequent disappointments and challanges of life, that is the art of living. Sometimes finding peace is not about finding success, but about knowing that you have tried your hardest.

Deja vu. Na ovoj istoj lokaciju u Splitu prošle godine, snimili smo odjevnu objavu u kojoj sam ja nosila ovu istu moda in haljinu. Nisam to planirala, ali sada mi je baš zabavno. Prošli put sam je ukombinirala s tenisicima i prslukom od jeansa, a ovaj put s sandalama s punom petom i ogrlicom koja je moja kreacija. Koja verzija vam se više sviđa? Možete vidjeti prošlogodišnju objavu ovdje.

Voljela sam kupovati u Modi in ( i za sebe  i za druge), ali trgovina iz moga susjedstva se zatvorila i ne mogu je pronaći na novoj lokaciji, ako ta uopće i postoji. Bili su mala lokalna kompanija, jako povoljna, pa tko zna, možda su se i ugasili. Još ih tražim, pa ako ih nađem, javim. Tako je teško uspjeti danas u vremenu masovne proizvodnje.  I sama sam pokušavala nekoliko puta otvoriti neki svoj posao, ali nikad mi nije uspjelo. To je život. Pronaći mir, između čestih razočarenja i izazova života, to je umijeće življenja. Ponekad pronaći mir nije isto što i pronaći uspjeh, već prije znati da si dao sve od sebe.

  1. It Is not that easy to set up and run a business successfully, someone once said that there will be ups and downs but if one can withstand all that challenges then the business will too. Loving your outfit dear,ans have a great weekend.

  2. I like both versions! I don't know what I like better. Although right now, I'd probably go for the vest/sneakers for comfort :)

    What kind of business did you start? I grew up in a family business, and they start/stop businesses all the time. Even when I try to get away from it, it's in my blood. I just have to have thick skin, keep my head up high, persevere, or reinvent when something fails... and I've failed and lost money on some things. I understand the feeling!

    Life is not about happiness but instead finding joy in everything, even if it's something really small.

    2. I absolutely agree with you. It is important to know that failing is not some great tragedy because we can (and hopefully will) try again.

      I didn't actually got to opening a bussiness, just tried...but I changed a number of jobs in my life (often because the company I would work for closed) and that made me less afraid of starting anew.

      It's not easy starting from nothing but it isn't so terribly difficult either once our mindset is right.

  12. Baš mi je super ova slučajnost sa lokacijom i odjećom :) I sviđaju mi se obje kombinacije iako sam ja više tip od tenisica pa, kad bi morala, odlučila bi se za onu prošlu, ali ti obje izvrsno stoje! :)

    Ja sam razmišljala o pokretanju vlastitog posla i to mi je još uvijek u nekim budućim planovima zacrtano, ali već godinama radim kao slobodnjak i skačem s projekta na projekt, ali ponekad se zna dogoditi ono grozno zatišje jer je poslovna klima pogotovo u kreativnim područjima totalna koma zadnjih godina i onda se znam zapitati što ako takvo stanje potraje. Ali ne dam se u negativne misli nikad :D

    1. i kod mene je ista situacija, nekad imam toliko posla da ne znam kuda bi sa sobom, a onda dođe opet taj prazni hod, ali i to prođe, bitno je samo stalno biti uporan, pa na kraju sve na svoje dođe.

  18. Love both looks. You maintained a red shirt with both look. That's cute.

    You didn't fail, the business failed, but you gained an experience which will be useful next time you try, if you make use if the experience.

  25. Haljinica je preslatka i odlična je u obje kombinacije, a ja malo više naginjem glasanju za ovu. :)
    Jednom mi je netko rekao da se veselim i osjećaju razočaranja...jer dok god se javlja znači da u meni ima i dovoljno ljubavi za ono što radim i dovoljno snage da još jednom krenem u novi pokušaj. I slažem se, gore od tog razočaranja je stanje ravnodušnosti.

  33. Hi Ivana! This is such a cool outfit! Sorry I haven''t been visiting. I've been away camping for 10 days and there really is no reception there for checking my phone-! I adore the bright colours of your outfit and SUCH a fun hat- that backdrop is like the ideal setting for your outfit! x

  37. Ova ideja može da postane i mala tradicija :) Meni su obe kombinacije divne i zaista ne znam da kažem koja mi se više sviđa. Ja kako naletim na neku manju prodavnicu koja mi se sviđa, čini mi se da istog trenutka nestane :/ Ako iko treba da ima nešto tako, onda si to upravo ti i svim srcem želim da se ostvariš u toj ulozi.

  38. You look great in both version of the outfit.. but I'd always prefer (wedge) heels over sneakers. But that's just my silly preference! :-P

    Since I'm a football fan.. as soon as I saw Hadjuk on the wall.. I knew it had to be in Split. :-D

    If I may ask.. what kind of businesses did you start? And what are the most important lessons you've learned?

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…
