Čitanje..... / Reading....(outfit post/ odjevna objava)

I've had good luck with reading this month. I started reading The Amulet of Samarkand and I quite enjoy it. I'm still under impression of The Sea Lady. It is such an amazing novel. I finally got to reading Maya Angelou and I loved her, Jazz by Toni Morrison was as deep and profound as Beloved.  Have you read any of these? Perhaps the novels are what I will remember this month for. Do you have any reading recommendations for me?

Imala sam sreće s čitanjem ovog mjeseca. Počela sam čitati Amulet iz Samarkanda i baš u njemu uživam. Još sam pod dojmom romana Margaret Drabble (u orginalu The Sea Lady kod nas još koliko znam nije preveden). konačno sam počela čitati Mayu Angelou. Jazz Toni Morrison je dubok kao i  Voljena.  Jeste li čitali koji od ovih romana? Možda ću romani ono po čemu ću najviše pamtiti ovaj mjesec. Imate li kakve preporuke za čitanje za mene?

I sometimes read new books, and I think the ones you recommended must be great! I recommend "The man that counted" and "The Prophet", both not so old and very impressive!

  26. Here I am again, with a bit more time on my hand now. I know exactly what you're talking about, Ivana, pretty much the same here. I already got some of the estimates, and well that's not in my budget, so I have to come up with some other solution for that dreadful ceiling. If you think popcorn ceiling is the worst, wait until you see this one. It has been driving me nuts ever since I moved in here. Well to make it short, the constructor says there might be a lot of damage underneath which will add to the cost. OK, so I have to come up with something I can afford. Hahaha about 10/h in three days, been there, done that, lol. It is exciting, that's for sure but the more I see, the less I can make up my mind. Like, oh this dresser is sooo lovely, I want it but it won't hurt to have a look at the shop next door. Oh look that dresser is even more pretty, or is it? See what I mean, lol. A moodboard is a wonderful thing, at least when you stick to it. That's what I did not and I did end up in a mess. So this time I'll stick to my final moodboard and it's working pretty well so far with the bedroom. So yes it is exciting but you are right it's hard work too. But it's for you, it's your home you are creating, Ivana and I think that's worth all the trouble. Good luck to you too.

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…
