Taking a stroll in Čapljina / Šetnja Čapljinom

Another day, another city. This time I'm presenting a little city in Herzegovina. You can  see my previous posts from Čapljina here, here and here . As I said many times, it is a perfect town to take a stroll in. It is very pedestrian friendly and quite neat as well. Now, let's talk about clothes. No, let's talk about one clothing item in particualar. Her majesty the leather jacket. It can make you feel bold in a matter of second. Have you found the one yet? My favourite one is this old thing, about the same age as myself but it almost looks brand new. There are many ways to wear a leather jacket. What is your favourite one?

Novi dan, novi grad. Ovaj put predstavljam gradić u Hercegovini. Možete vidjeti neke moje prijašnje objave iz Čapljine tu, tu i tu. Kao što sam rekla puno puta, to je savršen grad za šetnju. Prikladan je za pješake i jako je uredan. Sada, idemo malo pričati o odjeći. Točnije, o jednom odjevnom predmetu posebno. Njeno veličanstvo kožna jakna. Može učiniti da je osjećate odvažno u nekoliko sekundi. Jeste li još pronašli svoju idealnu? Moja najdraža  je ova starudija koja je stara kao i ja, ali skoro pa izgleda kao skroz nova. Postoji puno načina na koje se može nositi kožna jakna. Koji je vaš najdraži?

  5. Is that a willow tree behind you? It looks beautiful! I'm all for leather jackets and at any time of year, they provide so many styling options and I love the direction you've taken this one in. I'm yet to try any flared jeans, though I'm so tempted now! Have a wonderful weekend :)

    1. yes, it is a willow tree indeed. I love willows:)

      Yes, leather jackets are really suitable for any season. One can wear them under a coat or over a summer dress (as long as it is a cool summer night).

      You would look great in flares! With your height, you can go for both high and low waist flares.

  7. Dear Ivana, yes, definitely: Spring arrived in your region! And I know what you mean with leather jackets as they make me feel bold, too :) What a cool way to wear your (really as old?) leather jacket and the town is obviously very beautiful. Thanks for sharing the spring post!

    1. Yes, it is really that old:). My husband's brother (the one that lives in Germany) bought this jacket for my husband when he was very young...It is amazing how high quality leather (in this case jacket) doesn't age at all. It is thirty years old and it is in a great shape.

  10. Wonderful jacket and the whole outfit - love the repeating stripes! You look like a true rocker girl, Ivana. Thank you for introducing us to lovely towns, always a pleasure to walk with you. :)

    To tell the truth, I've never owned a leather jacket - I somehow was never attracted to them, but maybe some day I will find one that steals my heart. I do have a couple of fake leather jackets, but don't really wear them.

    1. thank you dear Natalia! You know I love striped:).

      This leather jacket is the only one I have, but I wear it often. I also have faux leather jacket and I wear that one pretty often. So, I guess I just like them.

  14. There is something so unique and edgy about leather, even when mixed with the most delicate of fabrics. I am a leather jacket lover, and adore all of the zipper details on your style here. The area also looks very comfortable and friendly.

  23. Great spots, Ivana, this little city looks amazing and oh, I see that there are a palm trees in this region (which btw, I really like but unfortunately there are no such a trees in my country). What's more, I love your leather jacket, which is very versatile and appopriate for any season of the year. The fact that it's vintage makes from it even more special item. Hope you're having lovely Friday so far, Ivana! :)

  27. Kako je lijepo vidjeti sunčan dan i laganiju odjeću za promjenu :) I njezino veličanstvo kožnjak je meni najdraži komad ikad. Nikad neće dosaditi, izaći iz mode, s godinama izgleda sve bolje i bolje, a svaku kombinaciju savršeno zaokruži. Tko bi mogao poželjeti više :))

  28. Iako smo sve različite po svemu, pa i po odevanju, takva kožna jakna je komad koji mislim da svaka žena može sebi da prilagodi. Tako je moćna i godine joj stvarno ništa ne mogu ;) Super su mi takve opuštene kombinacije i još jedan dokaz da ne moraju da budu obične i dosadne. I sama bih se obukla isto tako, a i rado bih se stvorila na tom divnom mestu. Baš je kao stvoreno za fogografisanje :)

  40. I can't believe that jacket is old. It looks perfectly new. Must have been very well preserved. Perfectly maintaining it's sheen and looks. Most importantly it can compete with any jackets in stores today. Fashion is truly cyclical. You look lovely, very lovely. No surprises, :)).

    I don't do leather jackets a lot but when I do it's often times with a pair of jeans. I do have a pink one that I've had for many years and it goes best with skinny jeans and leggings. I have to show it some love soon, it's been a minute.

    What a lovely city!! You really have a knack for finding the best of the best. There is a calmness about it that pulls one in. Beautiful.

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…
