How to wear a faux fur coat? (a selection of illustrated and photographed outfits) / 9 ways to style a faux fur coat+ an outfit of the day

 #modaodaradosti #oftd #fashioblog #fashionillustration

I only own one faux fur coat, but sometimes one is enough. In my case, one will have to do because I still haven't found a worthy substitute to this old thing that I have been wearing since I was a teenager (and that used to belong to my mother). How to wear a faux fur coat? Today I have prepared for you a selection of faux fur coat fashion illustrations and outfits. If you browse all the outfit proposals I have prepared for you, you will see that I love to pair a faux coat with jeans. In addition, I've decided to share an outfit post with you, something I don't get to do very often nowadays (ever since fashion illustrations took over my blog) but that I still enjoy. The outfit in question is a combination of jeans and biker boots, something very comfortable to wear and very day time appropriate. A bit of casual chic is always a good idea. I feel like a faux fur coat is a great way to make any casual outfit look more dressed up and feminine. What do you think?

Last year I did a lot of (faux) fur illustrating.  I do love wearing faux fur and learning how to illustrate it was most fun. Speaking of faux fur, this is what I had to say on the subject last year and it seems to that things haven't changed much, have they?.
We have been seeing a lot of fur lately, haven't we? Not just in editorials but in the streets.  Fur and faux fur has been trendy for a while now, but this winter the trend seems to have exploded. I'm noticing a definite increase in faux fur jackets and coats worn on every day basis. If you ask me, it's great, because fur is fantastic for keeping warm. Most people will opt for faux fur, not just because of moral principles but because a lot of people (myself included) can't afford to buy a real fur coat. Fortunately, today there is an excellent selection of faux fur. Technology does have its benefits. Who knows where the future is going to take us in terms of material and textile development? Here is to a bright future for all of us!

                             9 DIFFERENT WAYS TO STYLE A FAUX FUR COAT

                                                  Back to my outfit of the day

Can we take a moment to admire this beautiful historical villa? If you like historical villas dating back to Austrian-Hungarian Empire, Mostar (Bosnia and Herzegovina) is the place to admire them. Not all of them are in pristine order, though. This it the more fault of the country (government) than of the owners. You see, these old villas are protected by law, so it is very expensive to rebuild them. Most families who own these villas simply can't afford it. If you ask me, if you are going to limit the way these houses can be rebuild and maintained (making it extremely expensive), then you should also help the owners financially.

Rebuild or not, these Austrian- Hungarian empire style villas are absolutely beautiful. Mostar used to be a part of this old European Empire so there are quite a few of them. If you want to read more about some of the sights dating back to that time, you can read this post. I'm, in many ways, very fortunate to be able to live in this beautiful city, I know.

  9. I have been seen a lot of fur this season indeed, and I love the trend. I look like a burrito with a fur coat though, make me kind of sad.... it's just not for me :D
    I love how you styled your coat, can't believe it is so old, but still looks brand new and not to mention in line with all the trends.
    The villa is indeed beautiful, your city reminds me of my home town, where a lot of historical buildings are abandoned and it's a shame.

  10. Bellissimo questo pellicciotto Ivana e tutti i tuoi suggerimenti su come portarlo! Bacioni

Is anything as lovely as a sunny spring day? I missed reading outdoors, I can tell you that. Sitting on a bench on a nice spring day, with a nice book in one's lap, now that has to be one of the greatest pleasures in life. Speaking of reading, March has been a good reading month so far. As loyal I am to my favourite writers, I also love to discover new ones. I try to read at least one new author every month. This March I read two American authors for the first time: Kurt Vonnegut and John Green. Naturally I heard about them before. Both of them are quite well know, but this March marked my first introduction to these two. They are not the only 'new' writers I tried this month, but more about that some other time. Earlier this month, I read Kurt's Player Piano and Green's Fault in Our Stars. I liked Player Piano much more that Fault in Our Stars but I was kind of expecting that. I'm happy I read both, though. It is just that Kurt's writing is more my cup of…


Hello my dear readers! Today I'm back with another post from Makarska city, a very popular coastal touristic destination in Croatia. If you remember, I went to Makarska on the first of March to visit a family member. I went back again last Friday (exactly a week ago) and the weather was dreamy. We had a great time, we sure did.  In this first photograph, you can see me standing in front of Franciscan monastery and church of Blessed Virgin. I will write a more about this monastery some other time, and today I'll show you a bit more of Makarska city itself and show some of its many attractions (like the main city square and the church of Saint Mark the Evangelist). If you haven't seen it yet, feel free to check out my recent post about Makarska. You can also check out this old Makarska travel post (dating to March, 2016). As you can see, I've been to Makarska a few times. Not nearly enough, if you ask me. It is a beautiful city and I think I even prefer it in spring sea…


January and February have both been quite eventful months for me. A mix of good and the bad you might say, but all in all I can't complain. After ten long years I'm finally in remission, so that's amazing news. Fingers crossed things stay that way. I can't tell you how relived and happy I am to be in remission. I lost all hope of it (to tell you the truth) but then when I didn't even think about it, it happened. That's life, isn't it? You never know what the tomorrow might bring. Both good and the bad. I suppose that's the fun in living- not knowing. I know  it might seem a bit late, sharing January and February highlights as late as mid March, but I finally found some time to put this post together, so let's do it. Scroll down to see some of my January and February highlights.


Most of the trips I took this January were to areas located in vicinity of Mostar city (where I'm still based) but in February I visited Croatia. I&…
