University campus (my version of a school uniform) / Sveučilišni kampus ( moja verzija školske uniforme)

Just in case you're wondering, the location for these photographs is University campus in Split city (Croatia). The first building (in order of appearance) is University library of Split and the others are  mostly university buildings ( University of Engineering, University of Economics etc). This location was featured previously on my blog a number of times ( for example here ) and  since then, a lot of people inquired about it, that's why I'm taking a moment to reflect on it. I personally like to go for a walk here and not only because it is where I live. One of my favourite writers ( Roger Zelazny) said he likes libraries because it makes him feel safe to be surrounded by walls of knowledge. I share his sentiment. Maybe that is what draws me to this place. There is something comforting about the search for knowledge, at times it even seems more complete to me than search for happiness that is so often elusive. After all, in life we must forever remain students because we are all students of life. My student days are in the past, but I'm still studying, I'm still learning the lessons of life. I still hunger for knowledge, perhaps now more than ever. It is like I have returned to my childhood and became that little girl that adores encyclopedias. There are days when everything seems so fascinating....and I think it is a good thing.

Ukoliko vas slučajno zanima, mjesto snimanja ovih slika je splitski sveučilišni kampus. Prva zgrada koja se vidi je Sveučilišna knjižnica grada Splita, ostalo su većinom zgrade raznih fakulteta ( FESB, Fakultet ekonomije itd). Lokacija je više puta bila na mom blogu (npr. ovdje) i od tada sam dobila puno pitanja o njoj, zato sam i uzela trenutak da se na nju osvrnem. Osobno volim tu prošetati i ne samo zato jer tu živim. Jedan od mojih omiljenih pisaca ( Roger Zelanzy) rekao je da voli knjižnjice jer se osjeća siguran okružen zidovima znanja, a moram reći da i ja dijelim taj osjećaj. Možda me to privlači ovom mjestu.  Nešto je utješno u potrazi za znanjem, ponekad čak čini mi se potpunijim od potrage za srećom koja često zna biti teško uhvatljiva. Na kraju krajeva, u životu moramo uvijek ostati učenici jer smo mi svi učenici života. Moji dani studentice su prošli, ali još uvijek studiram, još uvijek učim lekcije života. Još uvijek osjećam glad za znjanjem, možda sada više nego ikad. Kao da sam se vratila u djetinstvo i postala opet ona djevojčica koja obožava enciklopedije. Ima dana kada mi se sve čini tako zanimljivo....a mislim da je dobra stvar.

  12. I love what you said in the first paragraph hun, we all really are students of life! Your photos really take me back too, my university campus looked very similar and honestly being a uni student was one of the best experiences of my life! I do miss the good old days, it was fun learning and not worrying about having to support yourself in a daily life haha. Also, I love the outfit of course! :) That skirt is super pretty and really shows off your lovely figure. x x Kisses x x

  17. Dear Ivana, I must say I really like the campus of the university in Split - it looks so well arranged, tidy and clear there! Also your outfit is an eye-candy, I see you are wearing again yellow, what you love at the moment! And I love also the quote of one of your favourite writes, so true and I agree :) Further you are right that we all remain students during our complete life: we are all students of live. I recognised already very often that you are still very hungry of knowledge - I like this a lot and I'm convinced you will get eben wiser during your life as you are already at the moment. And I think you know that I'm not only convinced but I know this for sure you are already very wise and intelligent. What does your husband say? You are a genius and this is true.

  21. Prekrasno okruženje :) Je li i menza tu negdje? Sjetila sam se da smo u osnovnoj kada smo išli na Hvar na maturalac u Splitu stali na ručak koji je bio dogovoren u studentskoj menzi.
    Isto kao i ti uvijek volim učiti, nove stvari me uvijek zanimaju i super mi je kada nešto novo saznam/naučim. Najrađe bih studirala cijeli život i većinu fakseva prošla :D

    1. da, ima velika menza na ekonomiji, a ima i na medicini koja je u blizini...ja razmišljam o tome da upišem drugi faks, ali nisam sigurna koliko mi je to pametno jer ako mi diploma iz dva jezika nije otvorila vrata neće ni još jedna.

    2. Koje si jezike završila? Ja sam mislila da si ti profesorica likovnog :o

  36. I really like what you say about still being students even when our university days are over. I agree that life has so much to teach us every day as long as we keep ourselves open to learning. And it's also so rewarding when we learn new things.

  39. "Uniformica" je jako zgodna... carapice i ovakav tip cipela su mi prepreprepredobre i izgledaju mi super na suknju. Ipak, sama se jos nisam okurazila jer nisam nasla fini par carapica pa okljevam... hm, ili mozda ne zelim razvod :D

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…

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…
