Podstrana (Croatia/ Hrvatska)

Today another post from Dalmatia (region in Croatia). I had already posted about Podstrana here. It is a settlement and municipaty located near Split (in fact only 8 km from this city). Podstrana has about 9000 residens. It is very popular with the tourists. Podstrana has been populated since the prehistoric days. The first people to settle there were  Ilyrians,  more specifically, an Ilyrian tribe called Pituntini. If you want to see what the appeal is, feel free to browse photographs. When I was there this Sunday, the rainy clouds fought battle with the sun...and this elemental stuggle created those silver shades that Impressionist painters were so crazy about. Standing at the beach, I could see just what they were so fascinated with. Sea has its own magic, powerful and ancient force that is hard to explain with words.

Danas još jedna objava iz Dalmacije. Već sam pisala o Podstrani ovdje.  To je naselje i općina smještena blizu Splitu (samo 8 km od samog grada). Podstrana ima oko 9000 stanovnika. Turističko je mjesto, a naseljena je od prapovijesnih dana. Prvi doseljenici bili su ilirsko pleme zvano Pituntini. Želite li vidjeti u čemu je draž ovog mjesta, slobodno pogledajte fotografije. Kada sam bila tamo prošle nedjelje, kišni oblaci borili su se s suncem i to  je stvorilo one srebrne nijanse za kojima su slikali impresionizma bili tako ludi. Stojeći na plaži, mogla sam shvatiti što ih je toliko fasciniralo. More ima svoju čaroliju, moćnu i drevnu snagu koju je teško objasniti riječima.

  4. Koja divota! :) Pa samo priroda može da stvori ovako nešto :) Zna se već da su oblaci poželjni na fotografijama ali ovako nešto je pravo savršenstvo! Posebno mi je prva slika lepa, možda jedna od meni najdražih otkad te znam. Predivno izgledaš i nekako blistaš :) Haljinica je takođe prelepa...

  31. Wow, Ivana, I'm impressed (and amazed!) by the scenery of your photos, you captured great moment, when rainy clouds are fighting with the sun, I have no doubts why painters were so crazy about views such like these ones, because they're breathtaking! What's more, you look very beautiful and feminine in this dress, dear friend :) Hope you had great day :)

    Your outfit looks stunning as well. Another great looking dress on you. These little black/white "playing thing" is just simple, but have such a big statement! This front print is also nice.

    But my fav pic no.1 is absolutely your last image: this sunset looks amazing with you in the front, looking a little bit shy - i love that pose a lot.

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…
