How To Style a Long Black Coat? An Outfit Proposal Of the Day (with a touch of red)

I've always loved the sea. Ho sempre amato il mare. Uvijek sam voljela more. 

How are you lovelies? I'm fine. I'm actually not in Split, Croatia (as these photographs would seem to indicate). I'm at home in Mostar, pretty tired after spending most of my day uploading my art to my new online shop. Anyhow, my outfit is yet another look from January. These photographs were taken on a windy day, but I honestly didn't mind, because windy photographs have a charm of their own. Speaking of photographs, isn't this place dreamy? Split is one of my favourite cities to shot in. It's a very photogenic city, no doubt about that. If you have been following my blog for a while, you have probably noticed that I'm crazy about seaside. I love the sea. I've always loved the sea and probably always will.

A touch of red (How to style a long black coat? An outfit proposal of the day)

coat: old, scarf:borrowed, skirt: vintage, shoes: borrowed

A long black coat is a classic. I'm assuming that most ladies own at least one. Most of us have it in our closets. I've had this one for ages and while it is not the only black coat I own, it is probably my favourite one. It was actually a gift from a friend. When I think about it, everything that I'm wearing today is pretty much gift related. I got this red beanie from another friend for Christmas. This yellow pencil skirt was a gift from my niece-in-law. She wore it when she way younger, but since she is not the same size anymore, she passed it down to me. I wear it pretty often because you know me- I love yellow.

This faux fur scarf was a gift from my mother. The story goes like this- she wanted to buy me something for Christmas,  but didn't know what so I told her why not a faux fur scarf. So, we went into a fabric & textile shop and she bought me a meter of this faux fur material (that's how they sell things in textile shops) and I just sewed the ends together. However, when my mother saw me wear it, she wanted one herself so we cut the one I got in half. She sewed her part together to form an infinity scarf and I wear my part as an ordinary faux fur scarf. This time I borrowed 'her scarf' because I had left mine in Mostar, but really it is the same scarf, just sewed together differently. Another thing I borrowed from my mother were these shoes. I planned to do a lot of walking that day, so I wore flats. It was a mistake! By the time I was back my feet were literally filled with blisters and there was even blood. My feet hate flat shoes, they just do. I don't know, maybe my feet are just more used to heels. Anyway, from now on- only heels.

  1. Hi! Great post and i love your photos!
    I just discovered your blog and I keep following it, would you follow me back?

    Have a nice day!

  2. Tebi dugi kaput divno stoji. Baš si elegantna. Ja sam odustala od te dužine jer ne ličim na ništa u tome :)
    I dobra mi je ideja s lažnim krznom na metre, sašiješ kako želiš i bok. Baš mi je drago da si opet počela raditi outfit postove.

  3. Aaaaaw you are so adorable. I love the idea behind the faux fur scarf, I wish I could sew as well, maybe it's about time to learn :D
    The black coat is indeed a classic and it suits you so much, which is weird, I usually don't like black coats,but you manage to pull it off with your own playfulness and it looks so well fitten on you as well!

  4. i think you take the right choice to on that look. i like also your little red hat - so cute!

    also interesting: you wearing flats, instead of pumps - you not very often wesaring flat shoes. nice to see that on this look!

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…

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.


February Recap (art & DIY projects & outfits)

I've put a lot of effort into blogging this February, I hope it shows. As far as the content goes, February was similar to January, mostly a mix of my illustrations and outfit posts (here). This month I was full of positing ideas and I managed to make many of them happen. I feel pretty good about that. The only thing I feel bad about is making my blog monolingual and not using my other languages, but translating texts from English to other languages takes such a long time. It is so much easier to just write in English.  Hopefully, I'll manage to change that and make my blog multilingual again. I need to organize my time better. Fingers crossed. For March I already have a few posts prepared. You can expect more art (mostly fashion illustrations) & outfit posts. 

I shared two DIY projects in February, one about making a Barbie dress, the other was about how to paint a plant container. I don't have any DIY projects prepared for March, but I'm sure that I…
