Summertime in Mostar (black and white dress) / Ljeto u Mostaru (crno bijela haljina)


Sunny summer days in Mostar city. Simple pleasures in life. The smell of pine trees in the air. (They have a special scent during the Summer. Have you ever noticed that?) Strolling around the city with my significant other.  A cup of coffee enjoyed in good company. Simply daily rituals that can be so meaningful. Admiring street air. Finding a reason to smile because as Claudio Baglioni sings life is know (youtube link here). Black and white dress worn with colourful sandals (wedges) because as you all know I'm addicted to colours. A simple summer outfit for a simple summer day. A bit of simplicity and putting our mind to rest. Sometimes it is all we need. La vita è adesso.

Sunčani ljetni dani u Mostaru. Jednostavni životni užici. Miris borova u zraku. ( Imaju poseban miris ljeti. Jeste li to ikad primijetili?) Šetnja gradom sa drugom polovicom. Šalica kave u dobrom društvu.  Jednostavni dnevni ritualni koji mogu biti tako značajni. Divljenje uličnoj umjetnosti. Pronalaženje razloga za osmijeh jer kao što Claudio Baglioni pjeva, život je sada (youtube poveznica ovdje). Crno bijela haljina, ali nošena s šarenim sandalama s punom petom jer kao što znate ovisna sam o boji. Jednostavna ljetna kombinacija za jednostavan ljetni dan. Malo jednostavnosti i odmaranje misli. Ponekad je to sve što trebamo. La vita è adesso.

  4. Super ti stoji haljinica i šarene sandale su odličan dodatak! :) I potpisujem, život je ovdje i sada, treba uživati u sitnicama i ne opterećivati se dalekom budućnosti ili stvarima na koje ne možemo utjecati. Želim ti divan dan! :)

  11. Odlična haljina :) Jednostavna a opet toliko efektna! Ipak, sviđa mi se što si unijela dašak boje u kombinaciju te je učinila 100 posto svojom! Ulična umjetnost je uvijek inspirativna! :*

  12. You are so right, dear Ivana, the simple things in life are the ones that bring more joy, more happiness, for sure! I think Mostar looks very nice and I loved the painted walls, so artistic! I loved your black and white dress and I liked the colorful sandals very much - a nice touch, pop of color! You look very beautiful! I hope you have a very lovely week!

  13. Ne mogu se više složiti sa svime napisanim. Takve sitnice su zapravo sve što nam treba, makar nama koji cenimo takve trenutke i radujemo se istim ;)
    Slike su fenomenalne i mnogo je dobra kombinacija crno bele haljine i grafita. Sad si me podsetila na zid pored kojeg prolazi autobus kojim idem na plažu. Svi grafiti su prava umetnost i jako mi liče na te sa tvojih slika. Uvek kažem kako hoću da odem tamo namenski da se slikam :)
    Da se vratim na tebe, ta haljina ti stoji savršeno, a baš kako kaže Ivana, sa sandalicama si učinila da kombinacija bude baš TI. Svako može da nosi crno belo, a svoj lični pečat retko ko ostavlja na način poput tebe. Znaš već da mi je tvoj stil neiscrpno inspirativan i zanimljiv :)

  21. I can imagine the smell pine trees even though we don't have temperate pine trees here. Just the tropical ones.

    I like monochrome outfits especially for work. You look great here. Very professional and executive looking.

    Playing the music that you've linked here while typing this. I don't understand the language but it makes me very happy.

  28. WOW! I really loved this OOTD post, you are an artist and I'm not talking just about your illustrations, when it comes to fashion you really know how to rock whatever you want ;)

    I loved the story behind the dress because it is true: the most beautiful moments in life are behind the simple things, a cup of coffee, a stroll around a new place and the nature :) Sometimes we forget about that and everything seems too difficult but is NOT! I also loved the background in your pictures and the dress is so versatile, I'm sure you'll be able to rock it in many ways with different accessories and in different ocassions :D

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…
