The Sea Lady (outfit post) / Morska žena (odjevna objava)

Yesterday I wore this polka dress (available here) in a casual way, promising to show you how to dress it up today. We must keep our promises, right? Well, the easiest way to dress up just about anything is by choosing a nice pair of high heels. This time I opted for orange sandals with very high heels that matched the colour of the sunset (not that I was planning it).

 In case anyone is interested, the location were the photographs were taken is Zenta in Split city, Croatia. I loved hanging out here when I was a little girl, dreaming that some day one of these boats would be mine. Speaking about the longing for the sea, I have a reading recommendations for you. I'm finished The Sea Lady by Margaret Drabble and it is absolutely brilliant. If you are interested, I might share a review.

Jučer sam nosila ovu haljinicu na točkice (dostupna ovdje)  u ležeroj kombinaciji, a obećala sam vam danas pokazati sređeniju verziju danas. Svojih obećanja se moramo držati, zar ne? Najlakši način za učiniti svaku kombinaciju sređenijom je odabrati lijep par visokih peta. Ovaj put  sam izabrala narančaste sandale s jako visokom petom koje su se slagale s bojom zalaska sunca ( mada nisam to planirala). 

Mjesto snimanja je Zenta u Splitu (ako nekoga zanima). Kada sam bila mala, voljela sam tu provoditi vrijeme i sanjariti da će jedan od ovih brodova jednog dana biti moj. Kada već pričamo o čežnji za morem, imam preporuku za vas. Upravo završavam s romanom Margaret Drabble The Sea Lady (ne znam je li još preveden kod nas) i oduševljena sam s njim. Ukoliko vas zanima, napravila bi i ogled.

  23. Da opet ne hvalim haljinu, koja je stvarno divna, ja ću opet reći wow za tvoje noge, a pogotovo ovako u visokim petama. I sama bi se okrenula za tobom na ulici. :D
    Druga stvar, a ne manje bitna, moram pohvaliti tvog fotografa, ti i Tijana me "jutros" ubijate tim svojim zalascima. :)
    A što se knjige tiče - da, da, da, želimo znati više o njoj. :)

  25. Ta predivna haljina pa još sa tom ešarpom, ma pun pogodak :) Uvek volim kada ima nekog pokreta na slikama, kao što ešarpa "leti" na nekima od njih. Vidim i zbog čega ti je to mesto posebno i nikad se ne zna, možda ti se želja ostvari ;)

  44. what a beautiful pair of heels! actually i should say peep toe heels. do you wear this pair of heels to another fashion combo? Would be interesting to see, which kind of clothings you choose to this heels.

    sorry my dear, but i have to say, that your eyeshadow is too much. try to lay off this much smaller, cause this colour is way to bright for this bold lay off.
    try to cover just your upper eyelid - that´s it, not more. around your eyebrow you can use another colour. i use most of it 2 different colours for my eye make up: one for my eyelid and another for the area between eyelid and eyebrow.

    On this post on my blog, you can see what i mean: http://jennifer-femininundmodisch.blogspot.de/2014/04/styling-farblich-akzente-setzen.html

    i know this kind of eye make up is not easy, but with much enough training it´s very easy to do.

    Bye.

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

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…
