Annabel Lee

It was many and many a year ago, 
In a kingdom by the sea, 
That a maiden there lived whom you may know 
By the name of ANNABEL LEE;-- 
And this maiden she lived with no other thought 
Than to love and be loved by me. 
She was a child and I was a child, 
In this kingdom by the sea, 
But we loved with a love that was more than love-- 
I and my Annabel Lee-- 
With a love that the winged seraphs of heaven 
Coveted her and me. 

And this was the reason that, long ago, 
In this kingdom by the sea, 
A wind blew out of a cloud by night 
Chilling my Annabel Lee; 
So that her high-born kinsman came 
And bore her away from me, 
To shut her up in a sepulchre 
In this kingdom by the sea. 

The angels, not half so happy in Heaven, 
Went envying her and me:-- 
Yes! that was the reason (as all men know, 
In this kingdom by the sea) 
That the wind came out of a cloud, chilling 
And killing my Annabel Lee. 

But our love it was stronger by far than the love 
Of those who were older than we-- 
Of many far wiser than we- 
And neither the angels in Heaven above, 
Nor the demons down under the sea, 
Can ever dissever my soul from the soul 
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee:-- 

For the moon never beams without bringing me dreams 
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee; 
And the stars never rise but I see the bright eyes 
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee; 
And so, all the night-tide, I lie down by the side 
Of my darling, my darling, my life and my bride, 
In her sepulchre there by the sea-- 
In her tomb by the side of the sea.

I love this poem <3

Unique, colorful and perky: Elisa Nalin

      Before a year ago Elisa Nalin was unknown in fashion circles, but nowdays she is a style icon.
She is italian stylist working in Paris. Her style is very uniqe, because she doesn't blindly follow trends and is very free-minded when it comes to her style. Elisa describes her style like colorful, unexpected, textured but always elegant and she isn't afraid of fashion faux pas.
      She is a kind of people with their very point of view and following their own personal taste which is rare nowdays and I salute that way of thinking and living. Also, she loves vintage....big <3 for that :)

Elise Nalin is a breath of fresh air in today "copy paste" style society.

Enjoy the photos and be inspired !

love, Ivana <3

Loving vintage

     Before a few weeks I found this vintage coat in my granny's closet. I fell in love with it on a first site so I decided even though it's almost summer here in Croatia to wear it for a photo shooting with Robert Matakovic.
     I love vintage style and old things and combine them with urban stuff such as this collar which I made and designed. Hope u like it, too ! And when it's about the handbag, it's actually bag for men, but I couldn't resist it! :)

love, Ivana <3

IT girl !

Hello !!!

This is my first post ever on my first blog ever...wuhuuu :)

While you are waiting for some pictures of my own style (which would be very soon) enjoy reading about Edie Seadwick, a true inspiration of mine when it comes to style. I absolutely adore her.

Edie Sedgwick (1943.-1971.), altough she was only 28 when she died, Edie make a big tribute to the world fashion. She was real IT –girl of 1960's. She developed her own style, with her own vision, but she was also influenced by Andy Warhol being his muse for one period of his art work.
 Thick black tights, oversize T-shirts and big massive earings were her must have clothing items. Edie's natural beauty, big dark eyes and her fragility made her special and loved by everyone although she was addicted to drugs and with her unstable nervous state. Edie Sedgwick was a interesant person who had three real loves in her life: Warhol, Dylan and drugs. She was the first model of great Betsy Johnson who told that Edie was the begining of unisex type.
Edie was so before her  time that she inspired girls over the world with her unique style which continues to develop in nowdays fashion.

love, Ivana <3
