Golden girl / Zlatna djevojka

Who doesn't want to be golden? Most idioms connected with gold denote something positive. Furthermore, what says Autumn more than gold? Gold is the colour of wealth, luxury and triumph.  The greated wealth and triumph is that of nature, for nature is born anew every season with luxury no man can copy. This golden dress was love at first sight. I bought it despite the fact that it is a bit shorter than I prefer my dresses to be, but I don't regret it. When I embroided it myself, it became even more special to me. I couldn't resist wearing this DIY necklace  with it. This is DIY kind of outfit all the way.  I do my best to justify the compliments I receive about my creativity and craft/ DIY skills,

Tko ne bi volio biti zlatan? Većina idioma povezana s zlatom označava nešto pozitivno. Nadalje, što kaže jesen više od zlatne? Zlatna je boja bogatstva, luksuza i trijumfa. Najveće je bogatstvo i trijumf prirode koja se uvijek obnavlja i ponovo rađa svakog novog godišnjeg doba u luksuzu koji nijedan čovjek ne može kopirati. Ova zlatna haljina je bila ljubav na prvi pogled. Kupila sam je unatoč tome što je malo kraća nego haljine koje inače nosim, ali ne žalim to. Kada sam je sama izvezla, počela mi je značiti još i više. Nisam mogla odoljeti da je ne uskladim s ovom ogrlicom koju sam sama napravila. Baka mi uvijek kaže da imam zlatne ruke, a trudim se taj kompliment koji dosta često dobivam od raznih ljudi i opravdam.

  8. Ma s takvim nogama ima da si stalno u mega kratkim haljinicama :))
    Izvrsno ti stoji i jako mi se sviđa izvezeni dio, baš joj je dao jednu dodatnu posebnost.

  22. Meni je ova haljina novost, bacila sam pogled i na raniji post, divno si to napravila i ona je sad stvarno nešto posebno i jedinstveno. Baš kao i ti. :) Vratilo me to u djetinjstvo kada sam gledala prabaku kako radi ručni rad, naravno da sam gnjavila da i meni da da probam, ali bi mi brzo dosadilo. :D
    Jao, gdje si kupila sandalice? Malo je reći da mi jedne takve fale u kolekciji. ;)

    1. cipele sam kupila u Borsi, to je jedan lanac trgovina za torbe i cipele ovdje u BIH , a sve svoje stvari uvoze iz Italije. Kupila sam ih za svoje vjenčanje i baš sam požalila što nisam uzela još neke drugog broja (ostao je samo po jedan par u nekoliko brojeva tada) pa da mogu nekom pokloniti.

  23. I consider being golden a positive thing as well! For the Chinese, gold objects definitely symbolize wealth and good fortune. This dress is pretty on it's own but the personal embellishments you added really give it such personality and life. I'm so impressed with your embroidery skills!

    1. I'm glad you agree that gold can be a very positive colour. I know that the Chinese also consider red to be a sign of good fortune and I love red too...thank you for appreciating my embroidery skilly. Embroidery is actually suprisingly easy to learn but it is very time consuming.

  24. That embroidery dress looks really great on you and the handmade necklace is not a halfpenny the worse. Your technical skill is really impressive, those different necklaces with semiprecious stones and sparkles have already become your personal definitive distinctions.
    Can't but mention that those pictures are fabulous, I was closely examining each of them!
    Have a good day ahead!

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…
