Pink and blue (outfit post)/ Roza i plava (odjevna kombinacija)

Who says we need to buy new clothes all the time? I certainly don't think we need to buy them in order to enjoy dressing up. Everything I'm wearing in this outfit, I've had for years. In fact, some of these clothing items date back to my childhood. I have this opinion that when we own a certain clothing item for a long time, we grow attached to it (at least that is the case with me). Moreover, the mere fact of having had some item for a while makes (or it might make ) it more meanigful for us. In addition, it makes it easier for us to style it because we know it so well. What do you think about this theory of mine? Naturally, we have to buy new clothes eventually because they old ones won't last forever. Naturally, there is nothing wrong in buying new clothes and enjoying the process. Nevertheless, in this world of consumerism it is a nice when someone takes cares of a certain item and wants to preserve it. Such attachments to clothes may be called sentimantal, but there is charm in them.

Tko kaže da moramo  kupovati novu odjeću stalno? Ja stvarno ne mislim da je moramo kupovati da bismo uživali u odijevanju. Sve što nosim u ovoj odjevnoj kombinaciji, imala sam godinama. Zapravo, neki od ovih odjevnih predmeta su iz moga djetinstva. Imam neko mišljenje da kada dugo imamo neki odjevni predmet vežemo se uz njega (barem je tako u mome slučaju). Uz to, čak i sama činjenica da nešto imam dugo vrijeme može učiniti da nam taj predmet bude poseban. Lakše nam je kombinirati neki odjevni predmet koji dugo imamo jer ga dobro poznajemo. Što vam se čini od ove moje teorije? Naravno, moramo kupovati novu odjeći jer stara ne traje zauvijek. Naravno da nema ništa loše u kupovanju nove odjeće i uživanju u samom procesu. Ipak, u ovom svijetu konsumerizma lijepo je kada netko pazi na neki odjevni predmet i želi ga sačuvati. Takve vezanosti se mogu nazvati sentimentalnim, ali ima šarma u njima.

  7. Preslatka pink kombinacija! Jako se vezujem za neke odevne komade i cuvam ih i nosim godinama. KLjuc je u mix-u starog i novog. Mislim da u tome lezi i prava umesnost i osecaj za stil.

  9. I opet se slažemo :) I ja imam dosta odeće koju imam godinama i koja niti mi dosađuje, niti joj vreme i neumorno nošenje može išta. Iako je danas odeća i više nego potrošna roba, ima nekih komada koji su za sva vremena ili makar za duži vremenski period. Mislim da je slično i sa prijateljstvima. Biti otvoren za nove i čuvati one stare, drage i nezamenljive.
    Divno ti stoje te nijanse, a posebno mi se dopada kako se uklpaju kragna i mašna. Blistaš baš kao i taj divan sunčan dan :)

    1. ma kako se mi to samo uvijek slažemo:). Moramo se dogovoriti jednom pa da se ne složimo. Ta usporedba s prijateljstvima mi se baš sviđa...ona koja vrijedi zadržati treba posebno njegovati i paziti na njih, a u isto vrijeme treba biti otvoren za nova.

  12. Personally I think the same like you do, Ivana - there is nothing wrong with buying new clothes, but on the other hand, considering the fabrics, where these clothes (I'm talking about the ones from high street like h&m,zara and so on) are made, everytime I need to buy something new, I have doubts, because it's so immoral, so very often I end up with getting something "new" from second hand store - at least, it's eco-friendly. What about your outfit I love how this purple sweater goes with pink skirt, it's amazing color combo, my dear:)
    Have a lovely evening, Ivana :)

    1. every time period has its benefits. Nowadays we can order everything we want from internet sites, everything is so easily accessible. However, clothes are made from materials that don't last very long. It is also true what you say about brands like Zara and H&M explodining their workers and doing damage to environment. I've watched one documentary called toxic clothing that really made me think. That is why it is great to buy in thrifted stores. By wearing second hand clothes we're helping the environment...and hunting for great finds is always fun.

  16. I totally agree with your theory! Most of my clothes are old and you are right. I know exactly what they go with and how to style them because I've had them so long. And I love your outfit! That collar on the blouse is gorgeous and the colours are beautiful. Beautiful photos!

  18. Pretty in pink, pretty in pink! I'm totally with you on not needing to buy new clothes all the time. It's more interesting and challenging to shop your own closet and come up with new ways to wear existing pieces. I love that you do that!

  19. I totally agree with you about not buying new clothes all the time. I tend to hoard my clothes largely because I'm so attached to them. Each time I pick up a piece and want to give it away, I think of how much I love/d it and I change my mind. As a result my closet is honestly almost collapsing under the weight of clothes. You look totally adorable and I can't believe you've had some of these for a long time. You sure did keep them well. The skirt is super cute and I'm sure you can style it many different ways just using staples from your closet. The cardi seems to be my favorite item from this look. The length is just right and so is the tie front style. You look totally AMAZING!

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.

CROATIAN FASHION WEEK: MATEYANEIRA FASHION ILLUSTRATION IN WATERCOLOUR

I can't really attend fashion weeks because I work full time, but with the help of the internet I get to follow fashion weeks digitally. One of the benefits of living in digital times, I guess. If you remember, I have already shared a number of fashion illustrations inspired by  spring/summer fashion weeks on this little blog of mine ( Valentino Spring Collection 20191 & 2, Zuhair Murad Spring Ready To Wear 2019 collection1 & 2Louis Vuitton Spring Collection 2019 ). Please don't click the links to buy the illustrations, they won't lead you anymore as my art store was lost and it will take me a while to manually remove all the links (I'll explain this later on in this post, for now let's concentrate on positive things like this cute new fashion painting I'll share with you and the design that inspired it).
 I was a bit late with catching with Croatian fashion week because I've been busy with work. About a week or so ago, I finally found the time…

IS MOSTAR A GOOD EASTER DAY DESTINATION? PLUS A SPRING OUTFIT PROPOSAL

Luckily for me, Mostar is an excellent Easter day destination. You see, I had travel plans for this Easter weekend, but I caught a bad cold so I decided to stay in the city I'm currently based in. That's actually not a bad thing because (if you ask me) Mostar makes for a great Easter day destination. Naturally, I've would have loved to visit my family, but since that wasn't possible, I'm happy to be spending Easter in Mostar. I've already cleaned and decorated my home for Easter so I'm all set. I've also prepared an outfit proposal but more about that later on. First I'll talk a bit about Mostar. Why is Mostar such a great spring destination? I can think of a number of reasons, but from top of my head I would say wonderful climate, beautiful landmarks and interesting history. Mostar is gorgeous in spring time. With its seven rivers and a number of lovely parks, Mostar can feel like a city oasis.

TROGIR CITY (PART TWO): KAMERLENGO CASTLE AND OTHER SIGHTS

KAMERLENGO CASTLE AND FORTRESS 

As I promised in my last post, my description of  wonderful Trogir city continues. Today I'll show you the city's promenade, its walls and a historical fortress Kamerlengo. We'll start with the latter, as it is one of the main attractions. Castle and fortress Kamerlengo was designed and constructed in the fifteenth century by a local Croatian builder and sculptor known as Martin Radoj. Martin also worked on some of the Gothic elements of Trogir city cathedral and later on in life he was entrusted with the construction of Trogir port. The fortress was commissioned by the Republic of Venice, hence its name 'camelengo ' that is an Italian version of chamberlain. I didn't go inside of  Kamerlengo fortress this time because I've been there before so I just enjoyed observing it from the outside. Besides the Kamerlengo castle, today I'll also show you the city walls and other details from Trogir. Enjoy. 



Once again, here is a li…
