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!

    1. yes, that is exactly what I meant! It is like we're better at styling them because we have had them for so long.

  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.

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…

Fashion illustrations of the day (markers)

Hello darlings! How are you? Can you believe that February ends today? This month has just flown by. I know it's the shortest month in the year but still. Today I'm going to share 3 fashion illustrations and sketches with you. The medium for all of them is marker on paper. I don't work with markers that often, but sometimes it is good to try something different. The fashion sketches I'm sharing are all about 3 colours: purple, green and red. Spring is in the air, so this is my reflection on all those trends for the new season. The first illustration shows a girl wearing a purple and blue jumpsuit. The second illustration features a girl wearing a transparent green dress with a top and a skirt under that dress. The third illustration shows two girls in red gowns.

February Recap (art & DIY projects & outfits)

I've put a lot of effort into blogging this February, I hope it shows. As far as the content goes, February was similar to January, mostly a mix of my illustrations and outfit posts (here). This month I was full of positing ideas and I managed to make many of them happen. I feel pretty good about that. The only thing I feel bad about is making my blog monolingual and not using my other languages, but translating texts from English to other languages takes such a long time. It is so much easier to just write in English.  Hopefully, I'll manage to change that and make my blog multilingual again. I need to organize my time better. Fingers crossed. For March I already have a few posts prepared. You can expect more art (mostly fashion illustrations) & outfit posts. 








DIY PROJECTS 
I shared two DIY projects in February, one about making a Barbie dress, the other was about how to paint a plant container. I don't have any DIY projects prepared for March, but I'm sure that I…
