this time baby, I'll be... bulletproof.

ciao bellissimi & bellissime! ˆˆ
I said I'm gonna do Oscars (+ pre/post parties), and here it goes...//Kao što sam rekao, obradit ću Oskare (i pred/post partije), pa evooo...

NOTE: I featured ladies I thought looked amazing. Some got the media's attention, and others didn't, but I'm featuring my personal favs. ˆˆ

NAPOMENA: Ja sam odlučio ovdje prikazati dame koje su PO MOJEM MIŠLJENJU izgledale odlično. Neke od njih nisu dobile dovoljnu medijsku pažnju, a druge jesu. No, to nije bio moj kriterij, on je bio samo da djevojke izgledaju dobro. ˆˆ

BEST OF... Oscars Red Carpet

Jessica Chastain in Alexander McQueen
Loved it from the moment I saw it. Some people said the chic level was questionable, but I think it was in the top for sure. The best she's ever looked on any red carpet. :)
_____________________

Zaljubio sam se na prvi pogled! Nisu svi bili oduševljeni, ali mene je zaista zadivila. I definitivno izgleda bolje nego na ikojem crvenom tepihu do sada (i hvala Bogu- OSKARI SU! ˆˆ)

Gwyneth Paltrow in Tom Ford
 She looks sharp, chic and comfortable. Not many people could pull this outfit off put she's the one. I also love when white doesn't look bridal like here. The chicest & the most different moment of the night!
_____________________

Izgleda vrlo jednostavno i chic, opet ugodno. Malo bi ljudi moglo isfurati ovaj look, ali ona je ta! Također obožavam kad cure odjenu bijelo, a da ne izgleda vjenčano! ˆˆ Zasigurno najdrugačiji look večeri!

Ellie Kemper in Armani Privé
Love the combo of the copper colours in the dress and the copper colour of her hair! The dress is maybe a bit too much bling-bling, but she does it justice. The gold accessories are a beautiful touch!
_____________________

Savršeno kombinacija bakrenih boja haljine i bakrene boje njezine kose. Haljina je moooožda malo previše šljokičasta, ali ju Ellie odlično nosi. Pravi pogodak je zlatni asesoar jer cijela kombinacija boja izgleda SAVRŠENO!

 Cameron Diaz in Gucci Première
 At first, I thought it would look dull, but when I saw the whole figure I was STUNNED. She's one of the most beautiful women in the world (in my opinion) and she could wear anything. This just looks A-mazing.
_____________________

Na prvu sam mislio da je dosadnjikava haljina, ali kad sam vidio cijelu figuru bio sam ZADIVLJEN. Ona je za mene jedna od najljepših žena na svijetu i može nositi bilo šta. Ovo je samo dokaz da ima ukusa! Izgleda savršeno. *.*

Judy Greer in Monique Lhuillier
I really don't understand why this look wasn't featured anywhere. :S I think she looked simple and elegant but stayed very much in her style. The sporty feel of the whole look really suits her.
_____________________

Nikako mi nije jasno ZAŠTO ovaj look nije nigdje bio istaknut! :S Mislim da izgleda jednostavno i jako elegantno, a opet je ostala dosljedna svojem stilu. Ovaj dašak sportskog elementa joj zaista odgovara. :)

 Octavia Spencer in Tadashi Shojii
This was my look of the night for the ladies that passed their 30's. She looks comfortable, very stylish and simple. The trust that she has in Tadashi Shojii really shows here. + I adore 'The Help' and her acting! :)
_____________________

Ovo je po meni definitivno look večeri za žene 40+. Izgleda kao da joj je ugodno, a s druge strane izrazito stylish i jednostavno. Zadivljujuće je to što konstantno surađuje i vjeruje ovom japanskom dizajneru i to se zaista vidi. A i obožavam film 'The Help' i njezinu ulogu i glumu! :)

Meryl Streep in Lanvin
Remember what I said about Cameron Diaz? Well, Meryl Streep can kick Cameron's a** when it comes to sex-appeal. She's what they call GILF (grandma I'd like to f**k). I cannot believe that a woman in her 60's can look so darn sexy. :S Even in golden lamé! I really can't be objective, but I think that the dress is a fine choice, and her accessorizing takes it to a cool level. :)
_____________________

Sjećate se što sam malo prije rekao za Cameron Diaz? E, pa Meryl Streep pobjeđuje Cameron u kategoriji seks simbola Hollywooda! Meryl je za mene ono što ljudi zovu GILF (grandma I'd like to f**k). Ne mogu vjerovati da netko u svojim 60ima može biti tako sexy. :S Čak i u zlatnom lameu! Što se tiče cijelog looka, mislim da je haljina jednostavna i lijepa, a cijeli asesoar daje cool osjećaj cijelom outfitu. (p.s. ne mogu biti objektivan kad je Mary Louise u igri ˆˆ)


 Emma Stone in Giambattista Valli
I don't care about N. Kidman and her Balenciaga, Emma wore Valli and knocked it out of the park! She looks stunning and feminine (which is not a usual route for her), but still special and different. Brava honey! :*
_____________________

Zaboravite N. Kidman i njezinu Balenciaga haljinu, Emma je nosila Vallija i učinila je to božanstveno! Izgleda predivno i ženstveno (a često ovo drugo izostane, što ne mora biti loše), ali je zadržala svoj drugačiji stil. Bravo micica! :*


 Louise Roe in Black Halo
I also don't understand why nobody's mentioning her look?! I know she was there as a journalist and she worked but this look is as sharp as it gets! :) The colour is amazing and the whole silhouette is very flattering. The belt is the perfect touch.
_____________________

Također ne razumije zašto se o ovome ne priča! :S Znam da je radila na crvenom tepihu kao novinarka, ali je izrazito stylish i zapravo lijepa. Boja u kombinaciji s materijalom je prekrasna, a njoj odgovara savršeno. Cijela silueta izrazito laska njezinom mršavom i manekenskom tijelu. Od asesoara najviše sviđam remen!

BEST OF... Elton John AIDS Foundation's Oscar Party

Dita Von Teese in Jenny Packham
She hasn't looked this good in a long time! The pale pink colour really suits her, and the diamonds take the whole outfit to a 20's negligee with diamonds territory which is pretty cool.
_____________________

Ovako dobro nije izgledala već dugo dugo! Ova nijansa blijedo-roze joj baš pristaje, a cijeli asesoar optočen punopunopunokaratnim dijamantima daje outfitu štih negliže s dijamantima iz 20-ih godina prošlog stoljeća.


Nina Dobrev in J. Mendel 
I'm usually not a fan of crazy cut-outs, but these are really pretty & hot without taking it too sexy. The whole look is really dramatic, and the only thing I'd like to change here is her make-up- PUT SOME COLOUR!
_____________________

Inače nisam fan ovih čudnih izreza, ali ovdje izgledaju lijepo i s daškom seksa, ali bez da postane vulgarno. Cijeli look je dosta dramatičan, a jedina stvar koju bih promijenio je make-up- MALO BOJEEEEE! ˆˆ


 Zhan Ziyi in Elie Saab
The colour of the dress against her complexion looks stellar! I'm a fan of different colours on the red carpet, and this is definitely an unusual choice. All in all, extremely pretty and elegant
_____________________

Njezina put i kosa u kontrastu s bojom haljine izgledaju savršeno! Inače, velik sam fan posebnih i drugačijih boja na crvenim tepisima, a ovo je svakako neuobičajen odabir! Sve u svemu, jako elegantno i lijepo.

BEST OF... Vanity Fair Party

Rachel Zoe in Rachel Zoe
 Very simple, but perfectly matched (duh, she's a top stylist in Hollywood -.-). Can't argue with anything, she looks great!

_____________________

Izrazito jednostavan, ali savršeno posložen i stiliziran look (ipak je ona jedna od top stilista u Hollywoodu -.-). Ništa nije sporno u ovom outfitu, izgleda zaista super!

Victoria Beckham in Victoria Beckham & David Beckham

I didn't comment on any men looks so I'm not gonna do it now. I featured this look because Vicky looks absolutely head-to-toe perfect. The men-inspired belt is very chic, and the simplicity really suits her.
_____________________

Pošto nisam komentirao niti jednog muškarca s crvenog tepiha, neću ni sada. ˆˆ Ovaj sam look odlučio Vama pokazati jer Vicky izgleda savršeno od glave do pete. Remen inspiriran onim muškim nosila je već i prije, a ovdje odgovara idealno. Cijeli minimalistički pristup zaista odgovara njoj kao osobi. 


No Angelina's leg or Natalie's polkadots?!Disappointed, I know...  // Nema Angelinine noge ili Natalinih točkica?! Znam da ste razočarani...

Hope you like my take on Oscars! // Nadam se da Vam se sviđa moj odabir!

Accessoires PART III!!

hello misters & misses!

Hope ur nice & ready to go because today's the day of the last look from the editorial for Accessoires, and I'm also announcing a giveaway which will start tomorrow on the facebook fanpage of style-brick-road (HERE). Unfortunately, only people that live in Croatia can participate in the giveaway! :(

Jeste li mi dobro? Nadam se da jeste jer Vam danas pokazujem posljednji look sa snimanja za Accessoires + najavljujem giveawaaay koji kreće od sutra na style-brick-road facebook fanpageu (OVDJE). Budite spremni! ˆˆ

About the third outfit... This one's the most casual of three looks, and it's probably the one that's most accessable to everyone. I decided to combine simple and classic pieces in fun colours (it's for spring ˆˆ) with a neutral base like jeans. You can combine only one or two colours, if you're more shy. This one's called 'colourful & casual'. :D

A sada o trećem outfitu... Ovaj look sam zamislio kao casual look s kojim će se vjerojatno poistovjetiti najviše ljudi. On je za one dane kada ste u žurbi ili kada Vam se ništa ne da, a opet ne želite izgledati sasvim obično. Stoga za takve dane predlažem kombiniranje casual/klasičnih komada u nekim jarkim bojama. Baza su traperice (ovaj puta u pomalo neobičnom mrkva kroju) koje idu na sve boje. Ja sam ovdje kombinirao podosta boja, ali vi naravno možete uzeti jednu ili dvije i poigrati se time. Ovaj se look zove 'colourful & casual'. :D

p.s. I'm gonna do an Oscars post tomorrow, when everyone stops talking about them. I'll feature my favs from the red carpet, but I'll also cover the best-dressed from the Oscars parties. ˆˆ

p.s. Sutra, kada pompa o Oscarima potpuno iščezne, ja stavljam post o svojim favoritima. Neću samo uvrstiti one s crvenog tepiha o kojima svi bruje već i s post/pre Oscar partyja. :D

Accessoires PART II!

Good post-Oscar day everybody! ˆˆ

I'm totally overwhelmed with Oscars which I was following diligently yesterday night. I was also tweeting about the looks on the Red Carpet (@dinobonacic) so I know every detail of every gown. ˆˆ Honestly I wasn't blown away by the dresses and outfits, and I think that the gals were more classic and simple than EVER (with few exceptions). You can see more of my impressions of the Oscars RC on my twitter & my facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Style-brick-road/165522896875052), where I'm gonna put any outfit worthy of comments so you're more than welcome to join the discussion. :)
And now the second outfit from the editorial for Accesoires. The second one was 20's & 30's inspired with a modern twist. I combined the vintage inspired accesories from Accesoires with a few modernistic details. And that's how the 'RETRO-VINTAGE-COOL' look came to life. ˆˆ

Sinoć sam gledao Oscare tako da sam prepun dojmova, tweetao sam o lookovima s red carpeta (@dinobonacic) tako da sam uporno pratio svaku toaletu. Iskreno, nije mi bilo previše extra-mega-super izdanja. Cure su nekako klasične i jednostavnije nego ikad. :) No, neću puno to raspravljati o haljinama ovdje, imate dojmove na twitteru, a i na svojoj facebook stranici (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Style-brick-road/165522896875052) stavljati ću fotke i komentare pa se slobodno pridružite raspravi. ˆˆ
Također, stavljam svoj drugi outfit (kako smo se i dogovorili jučer :P) sa snimanja za Accessoires. Ovaj drugi outfit mi je u glavi nastao pod utjecajem početka prošlog stoljeća i filmova iz toga doba, ali naravno u modernoj verziji. Nekoliko modernističkih detalja mixani s odličnim asesoarom s vintage prizvukom (iz Accessoiresa naravno) tvore ovaj look kojeg sam nazvao 'RETRO-VINTAGE-COOL'.






what I wore.
hat, sunglasses, scarf, pocket watch, bracelet. Accesoires
trench. h&m
bow-tie. h&m
belt. h&m
shirt. h&m
 socks. h&m
trousers. h&m
shoes. h&m
gilet. shs


That's that! ˆˆ

Accessoires PART I!

Hello-yellow!//Bokić-sokić!

OMG! I'm so nervous because of the Oscars which are toniiiiight!! Can't wait for: a) the red carpet & b) the award ceremony itself (fingers crossed for Viola Davis).
According to our deal, I'm publishing the first outfit of the first styling for the Accessoires editorial (the photos of the goodies, including the photos of the ones I gifting you, will be on my blog on tuesday, not today as I said yesterday ˆˆ).

OMG. tako sam nervozaaaan. DANAS SU OSCARIIII! :D Jedva čekam i gledanje red carpeta i gledanje same dodjele (molim boga za Violu Davis da osvoji oscaraaaa :D). A prema obećanom, danas idu fotke 1. outfita s Accessoires shootinga (IPAK u utorak idu fotke svih goodiesa, uključujući onih koje Vama poklanjam).


About the Accessoires shoot: I had a theme in my head- POP OF COLOUR, and so I decided to put 3 looks that have a neutral (non)colour base, and mix it up with some cool and IT colours. I also showed 3 sides of me. Here's the first outfit I called: 'ROCK OUT'.

Malo o snimanju za Accessoires: Dok sam smišljavao kombinacije, stvorio sam si jednu temu/priču u svojoj glavi: POP OF COLOUR (bolje zvuči na engleskom, ali prevedeno bi bilo: iznenadni prasak boje). Sukladno s temom, u svakoj od 3 kombinacije postavio sam bazu outfita od (ne)boja/neutralnih tonova i pomiješao je s nekim (po mojem mišljenju) IT boja za proljeće 2012. Isto tako, kroz ta tri outfita pokazao sam svoja 3 lica. Današnji (1. outfit) se zove: 'ROCK OUT'.


photooooos...// slikiceeeee...











what I wore:
bracelets, beanie, sunglasses, scarf. Accessoires
faux leather jacket. zara
black jeans. h&m
burgundy tee. h&m
shoes/ankle boots. zara

HOPE YOU LIKE IT!!// NADAM SE DA VAM SE SVIĐA!!

you stood before the sun, almost struck me blind, you're so damn fine...

happy saturday everyone! // sretna subota svimaaaa!!!


Sorry for not postiiiing! :(( I was SO busy these last 3 days! Thursday- skiing in Slovenia. Friday- shooting an editorial for Accessories. Friday- cleaning up the mess from last 2 days. xD Since I didn't write for 3 days, I've got many things to tell you. Today's the day for the pics from skiing!
We started our trip at very early a.m., listening to Ex-Yu rock and joking around. My dad, my sis & moi had amazing time and absoulutely enjoyed every second of that day. The highlight was a yummy yummy drink called Bombardino- hot eggnog with some alcohol- DE-LICIOUS!!! When I came home, I was exhausted, but feeling happy and fulfilled.

Evo ja se najdublje ispričavam zbog puna tri dana nepisanja, ali bilo je tu svega- od skijanja u četvrtak, snimanja editorijala za Accessories u petak do pospremanja nereda koji je posljedica ova dva prethodna dana. Pošto nisam pisao 3 dana, imam Vam puno toga za pokazati. Danas ću krenuti sa skijanjem kako bih Vam potanko ispričao kako je bilo. 
Znači, krenuli smo (pre)rano ujutro, na put za Krvavec, SLO. Večer prije, tata me iznenadio prijedlogom za skijanje, a ja sam oduševljeno pristao (A NE, NEĆU!!). Seka Tea je isto išla s nama. ˆˆ Dok smo se vozili autocestom za Ljubljanu (mislim da je to A1) uz taktove Azre, Bajage, Filma i ostatka Ex-Yu rok ekipe, jedva sam čekao stati na onaj predivan škripavi sNJegiČ (ali samo kad sam u ski odijelu i skijama :P). Skijali smo se cijeli dan, u međuvremenu sam skršio nekoliko alkoholnih pića te germknedlu (što je skijanje bez germknedle?- makar slovenske.) Oduševljen sam jednim posebnim pićem zvanim Bombardino- svojevrsni topli Eggnog s alkoholom. U svakom slučaju- zanimljivo i prefino!
Na sebi sam imao utlra-retro ski odijelo koje sam naslijedio od oca, a izgledao sam k'o neki wannabe stylish persona iz 80-ih. Ako ništa, bar sam se dobro nasmijao i naskijao! :D
