Međugorje- Mostar (Styling cropped flares / nošenje kraćih trapezica)

One pair of cropped flared jeans. Two outfits. Two places (Mostar & Međugorje). Cropped flares seem to be in right now. I could pretend that I was right on trend. Say that I bought my cropped flares ahead of time. However, you would all know that's just not true because you have seen me wear them for years now. 

The truth is that I often have issues finding a pair of pants of adequate length. But, because I love flares so much I have kept buying them even when there was some definite length missing. What you know? Now cropped flares are all the rave...and I can pretend that I'm right on trend, even if it really only a coincidence. 

To tell you the truth, I don't remember when was the last time that I bought a clothing item. Perhaps I'm just tired of stores. Furniture and appliance shopping is exhausting. I'm starting to see why people hire professionals to do interior design for them. It is a lot of work. On the other hand, perhaps the reason of my buying clothes has nothing to do with laziness or being tired. Perhaps I'm just enjoying shopping my closet. 

Jedan par kraćih traperica trapezica. Dvije odjevne kombinacije. Dva mjesta (Mostar i Međugorje). Čini se da su kraće trapezice sada u trendu. Mogla bi se pretvarati da pratim trendove. Reći da sam kupila svoje kraće trapezice prije puno vremena. No, svi bi znali da nije tako jer ste me vidjeli da ih nosim već godinama.

Istina je da teško pronalazim hlače koje su odgovarajuće dužine. No, zato jer toliko volim hlače kroja na zvono nastavila sam ih kupovati čak i kada je bilo očito da im nedostaje dužine, Tko zna što će doći u modu? Sada su kraće hlače na zvono u modi...i mogu se pretvarati da sam u trendu, iako je to zapravo slučajnost.

Zapravo da budem iskrena, ne sjećam se kada sam zadnji put kupila neki odjevni predmet. Možda sam jednostavno umorna od trgovina. Kupovina namještaja i kućnih uređaja je iscrpljujuća. Počinjem shvaćati zašto ljudi unajmljuju profesionalce da im urede dom. Naporno je to. S druge strane, možda moj prestanak kupovine nije rezultat lijenosti ili umora. Možda mi je jednostavno zabavno kupovati u svome ormaru.

  10. I hear you on shopping your own closet because I've been enjoying doing that myself :) These cropped flares look like a very stylish addition to your wardrobe and the fact that you've styled them in two different outfits already shows off their versatility.

  12. Sh, dont tell us you are accidentally on trend. Just like you I dont buy many clothes, so I wear pieces of my wardrobe right until they are back on trend again. Saves a lot of money.

  17. You cute in that puffer coat but my favorite is the second one, the colors suits you so beautifully, Ivana. Shopping ones own closet is a wise thing to do. I have changed my shopping habits dramatically, no longer is there a Friday shopping spree, no longer oh I like it I buy it but a lot of closet shopping instead, and I am suprised how many clothes I have worn only once and therefor they are still new to me, lol.

  18. Your cropped flare jeans look great in these pictures. After having blogged about cropped flares in my fashion blog, I found them as a great opportunity to showcase your favorite shoes, sneakers, or sandals. Flares are attractive to me regardless. However, there's something about cropped flares that are uniquely appealing. You kind of show that uniqueness with these pictures. The lace-up boots are nice, but for the appeal of these bottoms, maybe some wild or chic shoes or sandals would have been better. Still styled well regardless!

  19. U pravu si za trapezice, totalno su moderne ove sezone. Ali, isto kao i tebi i pre su mi bile drage i super je što se moda zapravo vrti u krug i možemo uspešno kombinovati već postojeće komade iz garderobera, a opet izgledati aktuelno :-*

  20. Such a gorgeous blue sky - and of course gorgeous you in your flared pants! It's great to "shop your closet" when you've already created a fun closet to shop from! :) I'm all up for that too!! :)

  21. Love the outfit styles & the scenic backdrops, babe! Happy weekend! xoxo

  22. Eh, ta kupovina u ormanu mi je sve draža i draža ;) Ja zapravo volim ideju u kupovini i možda sam odlazak, da bih jako brzo shvatila koliko me to umara zapravo.
    Pantalone su divne (i u trendu htela ti to ili ne :D) Ta boja mi se jako sviđa i mnogo ti lepo stoji :)

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…

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.
