Close to the edge/ Blizu ruba

Don't worry. I have no intention of jumping in. It is just that I've always been attracted to cliffs and chasms. Perhaps I had been a poet of romanticism in my past life. This could be called a 'blogger off duty' outfit. It is what I wear when I go hiking when I have enough sense to wear something appropriate for that activity (which is not always the case, I've been known to go hiking in skirts, and boots with high heels). Love for fashion and clothes is so much more than a simple dressing up. It is what makes us always want to try new things. It is what makes us wear clothes that might not even look flattering on us but that make us happy. In its pure form, love for clothes and fashion is a form of creativity. I'm sure my blogger friends realize that as well. Any real love has its dept, so there is really nothing superficial about love for clothes.

Ne brinite se. Nemam nikakvu namjeru baciti se unutra. Radi se samo o me da su me uvijek privlačile litice. Možda sam u prošlom životu bila pjesnik romantizma. Ova kombinacija bi se mogla smatrati onim što nosim "kada nisam na dužnosti". To obučem kada sam dovoljno prisebna za nositi nešto prikladno za šetnju i pješačenje prirodom (što nije uvijek slučaj, znala sam ići pješačiti u suknjama i čizmama s visokom petom).  Ljubav prema modi i odjeći je puno više od jednostavnog dotjerivanja. To je nešto što nas navodi da isprobamo nove stvari. To je nešto što nas tjera da nosimo odjeću koja nam možda i ne pristaje, ali koja nas čini sretnima. U svojom čistom obliku, ljubav prema odjeći i modi je oblik kreativnosti. Sigurna sam da to moje kolege i kolegice blogeri shvaćaju. Svaka prava ljubav ima svoju dubinu, pa zapravo nema ništa površno u ljubavi prema odjeći.




Speaking of clothes, there is one new clothing item in my closet and that is this turtleneck sweater. When it comes to shopping, I shop at the speed of a very slow turtle that is I buy only a few items every year. Getting free clothes made me shop even less often. Anyway, recently, I've been to Mana and bought a few sweaters on a discount from an old collection. I may have written on my blog that it is a Croatian brand, but really it is not. It is an international brand as I learned when I did some research. I started frequenting it more often since my mother managed to find jeans there....that is a real feat for her since she is a very tall and slender woman and she always struggles with finding the right jeans or pants for her. Here is the link to their Croatian site but I can't put the link to the item because it is from an old collection. I'm not sure should I even put links when that is the case. If you're going to shop there, keep in mind that the sizes are larger than we're used on here.

Govoreći o odjeći, ima jedan novi odjevni komad u mom ormaru, a to je ova debela dolčevita. Kada je kupovina u pitanju, brza sam kao kornjača, a dobivanje besplatne odjeće me učinilo još manje produktivnom u tom smislu. Kakogod, nedavno sam svratila do Mane i kupila sam par džempera na popustu iz stare kolekcije. Možda sam na blogu napisala da je to hrvatska marka, ali zapravo nije, kako sam shvatila kada sam provjerila, to je izgleda međunarodna marka. Počela sam tamo ići češće kada je moja majka uspjela za sebe pronaći tamo traperice, što je pravi pothvat jer je vrlo visoka i vitka, pa joj je teško pronaći traperice ili hlače za sebe. Evo poveznice to hrvatske verzije stranice, ali ne mogu staviti link do dolčevite jer je iz stare kolekcija. Nisam sigurna bi li trebala uopće stavljati poveznice u tom slučaju, ali eto ako nekog zanima i imajte na umu da su veličine veće nego što smo mi ovdje navikli.

 














The fact that I like to make my own autumn decorations  will probably come as no surpise to readers of my blog. One of the ways to make one own autumn decorations is simply by collecting dry flowers and leaves. Have you ever tried doing that? Would you like to see how I do it? I admit I'm asking just to seem polite, whereas I already have a post prepared.

Činjenica da sama volim raditi jesenje dekoracije vjerojatno neće iznenaditi mja čitatelje. Jedan od načina za pravljenje istih je jednostavno skupljanje suhog cvijeća i lišća. Jeste li to ikad pokušali činiti? Želite li vidjeti kako ja to činim? Priznajem, pitam vas to samo iz pristojnosti, a u biti već imam objavu spremnu.

  5. Lovely outfit, so stylish and comfortable. :) And what a beautiful place you're at, wow! As for 'sensible wear' when hiking - I climbed the Arthur's Seat (a 250m mountain in Scotland) in heels, haha, so I know a thing or two about that. :P <3

Odmah mi se svidio džemperić (bojeee, bojeee) i odlično ti stoji, baš je super ulov! :D I potpisujem sve što si rekla na početku posta, u ljubavi prema odjeći nema ničeg površnog i uvijek mrzim onaj osjećaj kad imam dojam kao da se negdje pred nekim kao moram ispričavati što vodim modni blog i što obožavam modu općenito jer je to kao 'glupo i površno'.

Good to know these things about Mana, because now I know that this shop won't be good option for me, because I'm petite and short :) But you look so pretty in this turtleneck sweater, it has great, bright colors and it seems perfect (and stylish) item for hidding :) What's more, I really like the location of your photos, Ivana, it's beautiful!

  22. As always you always choose locations with such visual interest. I agree that there is something quite fascinating and romantic about cliffs and chasms. Maybe I feel this because of the way they get described in books. This is a really cute off duty look and your sweater is so bright and happy. Like you, I don't but too many pieces in a year either. I think you would agree with me that there comes a certain satisfaction with shopping your own closet :) And I'm definitely not surprised you like to make your own autumn decorations.

  51. Presladak ti je džemper, već znaš koliko volim točkice i prugice, a pogotovo kad su u ovako vedrim i živim bojama :) Ustvari, čak mi je i pomalo čudno vidjeti ih negdje jer kad god uđem u dućan u ove hladne mjesece ispred mene je sve sivo, smeđe i crno.. što nikako ne volim i ne osjećam se dobro u tome. Super mi je i što nije običan već ima ove dugmiće.

  63. Da, svi često dobijemo etiketu površnosti kada kažemo da se volimo lijepo obući i da nam je odjeća bitna... koga briga... mene briga što nosi čovjek pored mene i neću ga "osuđivati" ali bi voljela d netko ne osuđuje ni mene jer volim biti lijepo obučena! :P

    Da, Mana ima ok stvari ali su meni većinom prevelike. Ipak, nekada kupim nešto što me baš oduševi pa si prepravim (kao ona moja siva plisirana suknja koju nosim stalno) :)
    Tako sam kupovala puno robice prvome klincu ali me jako razočarala kvaliteta jer se stvari toliko spofucaju da pola toga sada ovaj drugi mali nije mogao nositi. Baš se raspalo pola toga. Ne znam u čemu je kvaka ali me to dosta udaljilo od kupovine u Mani.

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…
