The Lady In Red....


Have you ever heard that ballad 'The Lady In Red' by Chris De Burgh? You must have had, it's been around for a while. It's one of my favourite ballads, a perfect joining of beautiful music and meaningful lyrics. For some reason this song reminds me of another (probably even more famous ballad) and that would be 'Wonderful Tonight' by Eric Clapton. Actually, I think I know the reason and it has to do with how I interpret both of these songs. According to my personal interpretation, both of these ballads talk about a man who suddenly sees his lady in a new light and realizes just how gorgeous and wonderful she is. Now, what is more romantic than that? 

That line 'the lady in red is dancing with me'  caused me to form a very vivid visual image that has stuck in my mind ever since. I don't know about you, but I could always imagine mesmerized Eric dancing with Pattie Boyd (the women who inspired him to write the song) even if in Eric's song there is no mention of a red dress. I'm not exactly sure what Chris looks like ( I only know him for his song) so I never imagined him, but I know he wrote this one for his wife, so she must have had worn a red dress at least once. Anyhow, that could explain why I love red dresses so much. I've said many times that I associate red colour with love and I have a special place in my heart for red dresses. Perhaps I still associate red dresses with these songs. One thing that 'The Lady In Red' made me sure of is that wearing a red dress can make us feel empowered. There is a lesson to be learned from this song.


Today I decided to made a little selection. Style We is a place where you can look for these lovely things I'm sharing with you. I have already written about this site on my blog. What is unique about it is that they're supporting young designers hence their 'designers at fingertips' motto. I've chosen a few dresses, all very pretty in their own way, but this first one (the one with the kitty print) really blew me away. It's so fashion forward, isn't it? It is really remarkable how putting on a perfect dress can make us feel instantly dressed up and confident. Plus, dresses always seemed like taking the easy way for me, you slip them on and you're done. Plus, there is always that romantic aspect to them. Even if you're not the kind of women to go in for romance (not that I ever met that isn't), it is always a good idea to have at least one dress that makes us feel really special in our closet. You never know,  the perfect dress might be just a click away!

  5. Hi Ivana! :) Personally I also love those two ballads, they're really romantic, just perfect to listen them when you're around "that" beloved person :) What's more, I really like the dresses from your post - red dresses are eye-catching, they make you feel like a lady and the ones, which you showed here seems like really easy dresses to style. What about my favourites, I'm so in love with second dress- it's simple, but really chic and versatile - it can be used in so many occasions and it has timeless shape.
    Hope you're having lovely evening, dear :)

    1. hi sweetie! I'm happy you like these songs too. I agree about the second dress, it's very classic. Cocktail dresses are always very practical.

  9. Stunning selection, Ivana! My fav is the first one, with cat's head :-)
    I know these ballads, although my beloved is "Nothing gonna change my love for you" by Glenn Medeiros and also " Joe le taxi" by Vanessa Paradis, and lately I often listen to Laura Pausini's ballads :D

  19. Ah, kako ja obozavam tu pesmu! Evo sad je pevusim :-)
    Svidjaju mi se sve haljine, ali prva je ubedljivo najoriginalnija i preslatka.
    Crvenu haljinu mnogi umeju pogresno da shvate jer cesto mogu izgledati jeftino i vulgarno. Ali, ako je materijal korektnog kvaliteta, odgovarajuce duzine i lepog dizajna to moze biti komad koji ostavlja bez daha.

    1. i ja je baš volim:) slažem se, sve ovisi o materijalu i kroju, ne mora crvena haljina biti previše seksi i vulgarna kada se nosi na pravi način.

  23. Mnogo volim tu pesmu i sve što ona predstavlja <3 Uvek je se i sama setim kad vidim nekoga u crvenom, a posebno u crvenim haljinama. Mislim da ne postoji komad odeće koji ima toliko moći u sebi kao crvena haljina. To je nekako dobitna kombinacija. Prva hlajinica je mnogo slatka i neobična i baš je fashion forward kao što si rekla. Treća deluje kao haljina koju imam u glavi, a koju tražim već dugo. Uvek kažem, kad bih morala na crveni tepih, izbor bi pao na dugačku crvenu haljinu :)

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.

February recap / sažetak veljače

You have seen (more or less) what was February like for me. Now tell me... what was February like for you? Are you happy that it's already March or do you feel like time is flying too fast?Are you looking forward to the spring?

 As far as blogging goes, it seems that I have became more focused on fashion illustrations. In the next month the illustrations will have their place, but there will be more focus on DIY....or at least I think so, because I'm kind of heading in that direction. Apart from that, I have no plans. I have so many ideas when it comes to what I want to blog about, that I often have hard time deciding what not to include. As always, feel free to write about what you would like to see.

Vidjeli ste (više-manje) kako sam provela veljaču...sada mi recite, kakav je vama bio prošli mjesec? Veselite li se proljeću? Jeste li jedva dočekali ožujak ili vam je vrijeme prebrzo proletjelo? Ne zaboravite da nam možda i nije još stiglo i da ime za mjesec ožujak potječe od st…

Wearing the First Dress I Ever Made: A Grey Midi Dress

Here it is: the first dress I have ever made entirely by myself. I did make some summer dresses in the past, but I had sown them without a pattern and a sewing machine and at any rate I wouldn't call them very accomplished. I mean, they weren't nearly as polished as this dress and they were not nearly as complex to make. I'm very happy with how this dress turned out. I'm even happier I took this sewing course in the first place because now I can make more dresses like this one! If you remember my November highlights post, you might remember that I've mentioned how I've recently finished a beginning fashion tailoring and sewing course with designer Stanka Zovko. 

I promised to show you the dress I made for my course 'graduation'. At the end of this lovely sewing course, you get to choose not only what you're going to make, but also the material and the pattern.  The sewing pattern is typically chosen from one of the sewing magazines this designer has …

How To Style Animal Print? + An Autumnal Fairy Tale at Ethno Village Near Medugorje

With winter at our doorstep, I think it's important to make the most out of the left over autumn days. With that in mind, my husband and I payed another visit to our favourite (still not officially opened!) ethno village in vicinity of Medugorje. I wrote about this eco/ethno village a number of times, so if you want to know more (or just see more photographs) feel free to check out my old posts herehereherehere and here.  Autumn is Herzegovina is always gorgeous, and this year hasn't been an exception. We had some sudden weather changes and drastic changes of temperature, but I would still describe this autumn as a beautiful one. The Sunday this photographs were taken on was rather gorgeous, so I'm certainly glad we went on this little trip. I know I'm repeating myself, but I do cherish moments like this. Every time I step into this little village, I feel as if the time has stopped or rather like I have just travelled in time. It's such a charming place! I h…
