EN: Black is perfectly highlighted by the simple beige base – a flannel top and a mini skirt, which I made and wear them both together and separately, as they are perfect for emphasizing a variety of accessories. Here I chose them to be all black. I like that contrast because it’s not as sharp as black and white. I also designed and sewed this clutch. Lately I’ve been crazy for fringes, but I prefer them in a modern context. The bag is made of false leather. It’s small and practical, yet you can put a lot of things in it – even some medium-sized book! (I always unconsciously measure the usefulness of a bag by how many books it could accept, because somehow I always find myself dragging books along. Deformation …) l’m specially proud of the fact that the whole front surface to which the fringes are sewn is actually a front pocket with one snap. I can easily slip my mobile there and at the same time regularly watch my mom getting anxious because someone will steal my phone that way. Every time.

PS: This top but with changed neckline is also in this post.

SR: Crna se odlično ističe na jednostavnoj bež osnovi – mini suknji i majici od flanela, koje sam napravila i nosim ih i zajedno i nezavisno, jer su savršeni kao podloga za različite detalje. Ovde sam izabrala sve crno, jer mi se sviđa taj kontrast koji je nije tako oštar kao odnos crnog i belog. Torbicu  sam takođe dizajnirala i sašila. U poslednje vreme sam luda za resama, ali u nekom modernom kontekstu. Torbica je od eko kože, mala i praktična, a opet može dosta stvari u nju da stane – čak i neka srednja knjiga! (Inače, ja korisnost torbe uvek nesvesno merim po tome koliko može knjiga da prihvati, jer nekako uvek vučem neku sa sobom. Deformacija…) Specijalno sam ponosna na to što je ceo prednji deo na koji su našivene rese u stvari prednji džep sa drikerom, u koji mogu lako da spustim mobilni i ujedno svaki put izazovem zgražavanje moje mame – jer neko će mi tako ukrasti telefon! Inače, taj džep je savršen i za brzo potezanje bus plus kartice.

PS: Ova majica, samo sa drugačije urađenim izrezom oko vrata i u ovom postu.

EN: First, I’m sorry for the poor image quality (not enough light and the camera was not adequate for these conditions), but this room of a friend from Athens, where my sister and I stayed during our trip, was so inspiring that we had to make any kind of images. I sewed everything I’m wearing. This blouse is an expression of my romantic side, which is almost as strong as my urban side. I’m not going to write much because this post is about dreams, and dreams are something inside us of which we should not talk much. Dreams need to be dreamt, kept in silence, cherished and grown until they are ready to spread out of us – to begin to be realized, piece by piece … We should enjoy our dreams and receive them generously and should never choke them, as they’ll turn into a phantoms in our soul … Dreams are changing through life, some disappear and others appear, some were realized, some will never be, but they are always there and they always define us. Human is a human because he dreams, but is also a human because he sees a difference between his dreams and the reality. But dreams are what they are because they are always bigger than our reality. Don’t be too harsh with measuring that distance, and always think of realized dreams because they are our hope. Then return to your current dreams, close your eyes, feel your dream, enjoy everything about it, and after that – get out of your bed and do all you can to make it happen.

SR: Žao mi je zbog lošeg kvaliteta fotografija (nije bilo dovoljno svetla i fotoaparat nije adekvatan za te uslove), ali ova soba prijatelja iz Atine, kod koga smo na zimu odsele sestra i ja, bila je tako inspirativna da smo morale da napravimo bilo kakve slike. Sašila sam sve što nosim. Ova bluza je izraz moje romantične strane, koja je jaka skoro koliko i ona moderna, urbana. Neću mnogo da pišem jer je ovde reč o snovima, a snovi su ono nešto u nama o čemu ne treba mnogo govoriti. Snove treba sanjati, ćutati u sebi, gajiti ih, pustiti ih da rastu, dok budu spremni da se preliju van nas, tj. da počnu da se ostvaruju, deo po deo… U snovima treba uživati, treba ih primiti širokogrudo i nikako ih ne treba gušiti, jer će se pretvoriti u aveti u našoj duši… Snovi se menjaju kroz život, neki nestaju, javljaju se drugi, neki se ostvaruju, neki nikad, ali uvek su tu i uvek nas određuju. Čovek je čovek zato što sanja, a takođe je i čovek što vidi razliku izmedju snova i stvarnosti. Ali i snovi su snovi jer su uvek mnogo veći od naše stvarnosti. Ne treba biti prestrog u premeravanje te distance, već treba pomisliti na ostvarene snove jer su oni nada, a zatim se vratiti sadašnjim snovima. Zažmuriti, osetiti u sebi taj san, uživati u svemu što on jeste, a zatim – ustati s kreveta i učiniti sve što možemo da se on i ostvari.
