Princess for a day....Princeza na dan....

You know I've been wondering about something. Why do we ladies love fairytales? Why do we like stories about princesses so much? Why do we enoying dressing up? Some may say that it is just in our feminine nature to enjoy dressing up but that answer is to simplistic for my taste. If it is in our nature, what does it mean? What does it say about us? Sometimes the right answer to a question is another question. That is what I have learned in life. Never be afraid to ask the next question.

 Speaking of us ladies and of our love for dressing up, I think there is more to it than it meets the eye. I think we woman are often perfectionists. We  try to make everyone happy. We aspire to be the best version of ourselves and we work hard to make our lives as beautiful as they can be. Afterall, why should we? What is wrong with that? Why wouldn't we dream about beauty? Sometimes we all need that escape....espace into daydreaming, espace into creativity, espace into fantasy....and isn't it what fashion is about? Letting us dream a little? 

Perhaps my love for dresses has something to do with my love for fairytales. Wearing a dress always makes me feel more beautiful and feminine. It means something to me in this world that is trying to make us believe there is something wrong in being a woman and that we ladies should imitate men if we want to be successful. I choose to ignore that widespread belief. I'm living my life as a woman and I feel like I've just started to discover what it means.  In addition, I refuse to believe that my love for dressing up makes me a shallow person. Wanting to be beautiful for those who love us is only natural, isn't it? As long as we remember that true beauty is the beauty of our soul, we're on a safe side.

Today I'm presenting Suzhoudress site to you. This pink gown caught my eye instantly. It is absolutely beautiful. On this site you can find an excellent selection of dresses, both for every day and for special events. So, if you're looking for a dress, you know where to go....and you ladies that are reading this, remember not to let anyone ever make you feel guilty just because you were born a woman. I sometimes think that some women do feel that. Don't! Don't be afraid to explore what makes you feel like a woman. Some ladies feel best wearing pants, but some feel best in feminine outfits. There is no right and wrong. Clothes should be there to let us dream a little, not to limit us. Life is hard as it is, let's not turn everything into politics. If you like dressing up, don't let anyone stop you! We can all be princesses for a day....and for longer! Because really that royal glam we feel drawn to is just a state of mind....Empire state of mind is something we can work on. Likewise, the only true nobility is nobility of a soul. That all being said, wearing a pretty dress or a cute outfit can't hurt. :):):):):)

Inspired by....Nadahnuta s.....

Time for another Inspired by....feature. This is my monthly feature where I post my illustrations of fashion bloggers. Usually I paint them with watercolours, but this time  I used just coloured pencils. If you happen to follow my instagram profile (here), you've already had the chance of seeing these two illustrations. In fact, I took these photos from my insta profile because I don't have my camera with me, so exuse the bad quality. Anyway, here they are. Check out the fabulous bloggers who inspired them here and here

p.s. It will take me a while to answer all your comments because I've had a lot of health problems lately and I'm really exhausted. My posts will probably be few and far between during this Summer.

Vrijeme je za još jednu Nadahnuta s...rubriku u kojoj svakoga mjeseca objavljujem svoje ilustracije modnih blogera. Obično ih slikam vodenim bojicama, ali ovaj put sam koristila obojane olovke.  Pratite li moj instagram profil (ovdje), već ste imali priliku vidjeti ove dvije ilustracije. Zapravo ove sam slike uzela sa svoga instagram profila jer nemam fotoaparat uz sebe, tako da je kvaliteta malo lošija. Uglavnom, to je to. Blogerice koje su ih nadahnule možete vidjeti ovdje i ovdje.

p.s. Trebati će mi dosta vremena da odgovorim na sve komentare jer u zadnje vrijeme imam problema sa zdravljem i baš sam iscrpljena. Vjerojatno ću ovo ljeto puno rjeđe objavljivati.

Style We - your new favourite designer may be just a click away!

Hi everyone! Today I'm presenting StyleWe.com to you! They are a very special online store. What makes them so unique? To start with, the fact they are featuring independent fashion designers makes them stand out. Moreover, they are special because their goal is to create a community where designers and customers could communicate and interact. They aim to promote independent designers. So, if you want something unique, this is the site for you. They have a lovely selection of designer items. Whatever your style may be, you will probably find something for yourself in this shop. Personally, I always love to see something new and fresh. There are many creative and talented people in the world and not all of them will find their way into mainstream. That is why it is important to have sites like this one, those that are willing to promote lesser known designers and help to connect them with buyers.


There is one fabulous designer that I want to introduce to you! You can look her up under Teyxo. I absolutely love how she does asymmetrical cuts. Her designs are very modern, but they still feel feminine and elegant. I'm always a fan of that vintage style, so her designs really caught my eye. I've selected 3 garments that have captivated me the most.  Two of them are dresses and one is a skirt. Well, you know I love wearing dresses and skirts, so no wonder that this caught my eyes the most. There are pleanty of other designers to choose from. This site prides itself on their dedication of providing you with original and high-quality fashion items. Have a look for yourself and see what you can find.

A good pair of sneakers is worth gold...Dobar par tenisica zlata vrijedi.....

 A good pair if sneakers is worth gold, but so is a nice pair of jeans. There is something liberating about wearing capri jeans.  Theis pair of high-waist cropped jeans is one of the most comfortable ones I own. What is there not to love about capri jeans? You get to free and show a little leg but you don't have to worry whether it is too much. They're a wonderful choice for Spring when it is not warm enough to wear shorts but they also come in handy for those fresh summer days. Do you like capri jeans? I often choose them when I'm travelling, precisely because of that comfort factor. When these photographs were taken (about two weeks ago) I paired them with white sneakers and a turtleneck. P.S. If you're wondering why I have been absent for the last five days...long story short- no internet connection.

Dobar par tenisica vrijedi zlata, a isto se može reći i za lijep par traperica. Ima nešto oslobađajuće u nošenju traperica carpi dužine. Ovaj par viskoga struka mi je jedan od najudobnije koje imam. Što nam se ima ne sviđati kod capri traperica? Možemo malo osloboditi i pokazati nogu, a ne moramo se brinuti je li to previše. One su odličan izbor za proljeće kada nije dovoljno toplo za nositi hlačice, ali dobro dođu i za one svježe ljetne dane. Volite li vi capri traperice? Ja ih često nosim kada putujem, baš zbog udobnosti. Kada su ove fotografije uslikane, prije dva tjedna otprilike, onda sam ih nosila s bijelim tenisicama i dolčevitom. P.S. Ako se pitate zašto sam bila odsutna prošlih pet dana, to bi se dalo sažeti ukratko na probleme s internetskom vezom.

Princess Mononoke / Princeza Mononoke

 DIY projects always make me happy. Today I'm wearing a necklace that I made myself. In addition, the hair decoration is the result of my creative work. It is actually a necklace ( see how I wore it here and here), but I always find new ways for wearing my necklaces. If you want to see how to make this kind of statement necklace, check out my last post. I wore this outfit when I took a stroll in Mostar (you know I'm all about that be a tourist in your own city philosophy) with my husband. He said I look like princess Mononoke. What an original compliment!  Anyway, since I happen to like this epic anime movie, I didin't mind hearing that at all. 

Volim sama izrađivati stvari. Danas nosim ogrlicu koju sam sama napravila.  Uz to, ukras za kosu je također posljedica moga kreativnoga rad. Zapravo se radi o ogrlici (pogledajte kako sam je nosila ovdje i ovdje), ali uvijek pronalazim nove načine za nošenje svojih ogrlica. Želite li vidjeti kako pravim ovakav tip ogrlica, pogledajte moju prošlu objavu.  Ovo sam nosila za šetnju Mostarom (znate da sam uvijek pobornik one filozofije" budi turist u svom gradu") i dobila sam lijepi kompliment od muža koji mi je rekao da izgledam kao princeza Mononoke. Originalni kompliment nema što, a kako mi se taj epski crtani film jako sviđa, nemam ništa protiv.

My new creation and restaurant recommendation / moja nova kreacija i preporuka restorana

Lately I've been trying to make post titles as descriptive as possible. Just to let you know what you can expect. :):):) What do I mean when I say 'my new creation' you may ask? My new creation is this necklace. I use to make all kinds of jewellery pieces but for the last few years I've been more focused on making necklaces. I made a lot of necklaces like this one, if you want to see more you can check out these old posts ( here,  here, here, and here). All you need for this DIY is faux leather, satin cord and rhinestones. I wouldn't call this DIY a difficult one. However, it does take some time and it requires having at least basic sewing skill. How do you like my new necklace? Now, about the outfit. I wore it for lunch with my husband. Speaking of which, I would like to make a little restaurant recommendation. What restaurant do I recommend today? Well, this one. It is called Stefanijo setalište and it is located in one of my favourite streets in Mostar city. If you want to know how this place got its name or the story behind these trees feel free to check it out in my old post.

U zadnje vrijeme trudim se da bi naslovi objava budu što više opisni, tako da znate što vas očekuje. :):) :) Što mislim kada kažem "moja nova kreacija"? Moja nova kreacija je ova ogrlica. Prije sam pravila svakakav nakit, ali zadnjih godina najviše sam koncentrirana na ogrlice. Napravila sam puno ogrlica poput ove, želite li ih još vidjeti možete pogledati neke stare objave ( npr. ovdje, ovdje, ovdje i ovdje). Sve što vam treba za ovaj napravi sam projekt je eko koža, satenska traka i cikloni. Ne bi ovaj projekt nazvala teškim, ali treba imati barem osnovne vještine šivanja i oduzima dosta vremena. Kako vam se sviđa moja nova ogrlica?  Sada, što se tiče odjevne kombinacije. Nosila sam je za ručak s mužem. Kada sam već kod te teme, htjela bi vam preporučiti restoran Štefanijino šetalište koji je smješten u jednoj od mojih omiljenih ulica u Mostaru. Želite li znati kako je dobio to ime, povijest ove ulice i priču ovih prekrasnih stabala, pročitajte ovu objavu.
