Fashion illustrations of the day /Modne ilustracije dana 31.12.2016

Hi, how are you this evening? I'm fine, the cold (or perhaps a virus of some sort) is still bugging me (that is why I started posting less), but I'm managing. I can't believe it's already the end of the month. Lately I've been thinking a lot about balance. I'm trying to find balance. It's a tricky thing- finding balance in life. Not as easy as it might seem. If you think you know too much, you blind yourself and you close the path leading to knowledge and realizations. If you think you don't know anything, it is easy to become depressed and let the desperation take over. After all, we all need  foundation to build on. In order to build something (even if that something is ourselves), we need to start somewhere and make some assumptions. We should be able to see the good that exists within us, not only the bad. As important as self-critique can be, we shouldn't be overly harsh with ourself. We all have to start from somewhere.

 Tonight, I've prepared two fashion drawings for you. Purple and green together? Why not? A maxi dress in Autumn? Why not? A purple maxi dress worn with a green coat because I love colours and I love the unexpected. It is always great to break the routine with a bit of colour. Blue and green together? Why not? That's another brilliant colour combination. Green wide trousers and a blue turtleneck. Wide trousers are a clothing item that always looks sophisticated to me. As soon as it gets cold(er), I start wearing turtlenecks. They are another item that always says 'classy' to me. Can you go wrong with wearing a black coat? I don't think so. Hence, the second illustration of the day is something I wouldn't mind wearing myself.  Thank you for reading!

Zdravo, kako ste? Ja sam dobro, još me muči prehlada, a možda se radi i nekom virusu (zato i manje objavljujem)  ali se snalazim.  Ne mogu vjerovati da je već kraj mjeseca. U zadnje vrijeme razmišljam dosta o ravnoteži. Pokušavam ju pronaći. Nije to lako, pronaći ravnotežu u životu. Nije lako kao što se može činiti. Ako misliš da znaš previše, oslijepiš sebe i zatvoriš si put prema novim spoznajama i znanjima. Vjeruješ li da ne znaš ništa, može se lako dogoditi da zapadneš u depresiju i prepustiš se očaju. Na kraju krajeva, moramo na nečemu graditi i trebali bi vidjeti i dobro u sebi, a ne samo loše. Koliko god je važno ponekad biti samokritičan, ne trebamo biti previše oštri prema sebi. Svi mi moramo započeti od negdje. 

 Večeras sam pripremila dva modna crteža za vas. Zelena i ljubičasta zajedno? Zašto ne? Duga haljina u jesen? Zašto ne? Duga ljubičasta haljina nošena s zelenim kaputom jer volim boje i volim neočekivano. Uvijek je dobro malo razbiti rutinu bojom. Zelena i plava zajedno? Zašto ne? To je još jedna sjajna kombinacija boja. Zelene hlače širokoga kroja i plava dplčevita. Široke hlače su odjevni komad koji mi se uvijek čini sofisticiranim. Čim malo zahladi, počnem nositi dolčevite, jer one su još jedan odjevni komad koji je za mene uvijek elegantan. Možemo li pogriješiti ako nosimo crni kaput? Mislim da ne. To moje mišljenje se odražava na drugoj ilustraciji koja je nešto što bih i sama rado nosila. Hvala na čitanju!

  1. I hope you feel better, I have a flu jab every winter, it isn't that I love injections but it works for me and to prevent colds I use a nasal spray to trap bacterias, not sure if they do it in Croatia...
    The designs are lovely, love that pretty long hair of the model :)
    Have a lovely week Ivana

  4. Purple and green remind me of Shaggy and the Scooby gang, always a wonderful callback memory. Lovely sketches! I too have been posting much less lately, more from soul illness than body. Hope yours clears up quickly.

  9. Da, bas tako ravnoteza je kljuc za srecu u mnogim stvarima. Naravno, ne uspevamo je cesto ostvariti, ali trudimo se bez predaje :-)
    Ilustracije su sjajne uz odlican miks boja i dopadaju mi se veoma.
    Veliki pozdrav

  10. Meni se baš sviđa kombinacija zelene i ljubičaste na prvoj ilustraciji, savršena bi bila za ove šarene jesenske dane! :) Nadam se da će prehlada što prije proći, nije ni čudno da te ulovilo kad je vrijeme skroz ludo - čas vruće, čas hladno, ne zna čovjek što bi sa sobom.
    Tu neku ravnotežu je teško postići, ali mislim da je ključ biti jako dobro upoznat i iskren sa samim sobom i naprosto slušati svoje tijelo i um, onda nekako stvari malo pomalo postanu lakše i jednostavnije! :)

    1. da, meni je isto ta kombinacija boja kao izmišljena za jesen. Vrijeme je stvarno ludo, jedva sam preživjela prošli tjedan.

      Slažem se da je sve lakše kada smo iskreni sami sa sobom.

  19. Slažem se. I ja volim spojeve tih boja, a nekako se retko setim i da ih kombinujem u praksi. Ispravljam to prvom prilikom. Isto tako volim npr. plavu i žutu zajedno. Ma ne znam da li ima spoj koji mi ne bi odgovarao :) Volim ja i klasiku i neutralno, pa prosto ne znam šta bih pre :) Ilustracije prosto zrače nekom posebnom energijom. Divno!

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.

3 AMAZING CITIES TO VISIT IN HERZEGOVINA BESIDES MOSTAR

My last post was about beautiful historical town Mostar, but today I want to show you other amazing cities in the region of Herzegovina. You guys know how much I treasure Mostar and how important it is to me. Mostar is the largest and best known city in Herzegovina, the cultural and administrative centre of this region you might say. Nevertheless, that doesn't mean that other cities don't deserve to be on your tourist radar as well. Honestly, one of the things that amazes me about Herzegovina is the diversity of its cities. Today I'll present three lovely cities to you: Ljubuški, Čapljina and Široki Brijeg. This is by no means a complete list. Another thing worth pointing out is that a lot of places  that get called cities, but in reality there are not that many cities in the whole of Bosnia and Herzegovina (only around 20). Popular tourist destinations such as Blagaj and Međugorje are often called cities while in fact they do not have a status of a city. 
As the name of …

VISIT OLD CITY CENTRE AND OLD BRIDGE IN MOSTAR WITH ME!

Today I will take you on a virtual walk through Mostar city, more specifically through the old part of the town. Whether you're a history lover or not, the historical part of Mostar city will surely impress you. There is a reason why this place is so popular. It's an utterly beautiful area and it's extremely photogenic. I'm very excited I'll be sharing it with you today. Moreover, I'm going to give you some outfit tips for sightseeing the old bridge and the old city. As some of you know, I'm currently based in Mostar. One the benefits of being Mostar based is that the gorgeous historical centre is always available to me (Click here to see my most recent blog post shot at old bridge in Mostar) and that means I can give you good insider tips too.
These photographs were all taken last Sunday when we decided to go for a walk through the old city after mass. We walked from the Saint Peter and Paul church and monastery to the old bridge, through the old town and…

KATE KASIN LONG SEQUIN DRESS (REVIEW AND STYLING TIPS)

Hi everyone! Who else loves sequined dresses? If you're into the metallic dress trend, you might find this post interesting. As the title indicates, today I'll be reviewing a gold Kate Kasin sequined maxi dress. I'm also going to give you some tips on rocking sequined dresses. Firstly, it is good to remember there is a metallic shade for every skin tone and undertone. The same rules we use for choosing the right jewellery for our skin tone can be applied to sequined and metallic items as well. Generally speaking, silver items are recommended for colder skin undertones and gold items for warmer ones. However, there are exceptions. Not all gold tones are the same. For example, rose gold is said to look particularly beautiful on fair skin ladies. This dress happens to come in different colours and shades (rose gold, gold, black, red, silver, navy blue and turquoise). Being olive skinned and warm toned myself, I opted for a gold version of this dress. What do you think? Does …
