#TBT: 2005., photo shooting at Ingatestone, UK



Hello lovelies!
This week flew by so quickly! Tomorrow is already Friday (most of you will be happy, because the weekend is about to start, but I'm not, as this means I have to go to work...and I'm saying this as a bad thing, because lately I'm not that crazy about my work, as it's getting pretty stressful!)...
"Inspired" by the fact that today is already Thursday,  I was thinking how this whole week flew by, then I was thinking how the whole past year flew by...then I got to thinking how the whole past decade flew by! ha!
That gave me a reason to have a #throwbackthursday post on my blog! :-)
This is my very first #TBT post (I posted #TBT photos before, on my instagram, and facebook, but I never dedicated a full blog post to this topic!)
Even though, I'm the person who doesn't like to think too much about the past, and I'm constantly reminding myself to look straight ahead, to keep moving forward, and fighting for a better tomorrow, sometimes, in life, it's good to have a little "throwback thursday"... :-)

So let's see what was I up to, almost exactly 10 years ago!!!







I was asked by one model agency from London to participate in a test shooting at Ingatestone Castle, in Ingatestone UK.
I was trying to build up a portfolio to start working as a commercial model and event hostess. My plan was to gather up some money because my dream was to attend one beauty school in London! As, at the time, I was struggling with my finances, that would have been a good source of income!
This was actually my first professional photo- shoot! I styled the outfits myself, and I had my hair and make up done by a professional.
I honestly enjoyed every second of it, but I can see now how my poses were a bit "stiff". With time I learned to bring so much more into a photo, and to experiment with poses and angles, to find out what really works best for me!

Honestly, I can't believe it's been 10 years!!!
You can probably tell this also by looking at my outfits!... a "monochrome" (pink!) theme I had going on was hillarious! Was that the trend back then (I can't remember!), or was I just way off when it came to fashion??
I remember I loved my pink "ensemble"...you can't see it in these photos (thank God!), but I actually even had the pink boots and the matching little pink purse, to go with my (already entirely) pink outfit!
Pay closer attention to the earrings: They're also pink! (I actually handmade them, as making jewellery was my big passion back when I was living in London.)
I can't understand why didn't I have a pink belt too! What was the deal with that??
But, do you guys remember this belt (from many fashion videos on my youtube channel!)?
It's still my go-to belt!
It's actually fun to look back at my "fashion crimes"! I like to think that my style is constantly developing and that I am making a progress :-)

This second outfit is actually a bit more "up-to-date"!
I still have this suede Krisp jacket and now I can say it was a really good buy!
My necklace is vintage (my grannies) and I still love to wear it!
Sequin/ beaded jeans? Not so much, but...shhhh...I heard they will be getting back on trend!...eventually! ;-)





A little black dress is something...I didn't have in my closet!!!
Back then, I didn't care for simple things, I loved everything that's sparkly and exaggerated!
This dress I actually borrowed from one model that was also doing a test shooting that day (along with the golden heart shaped necklace!).




I hope you enjoyed this fashion throwback with me!

This is me, 10 years later...





Ingatestone Castle's estate, where the photoshoot took place!
I can still feel the excitment of that day :-)









Sretan cetvrtak lijepi moji!
Buduci da je ovaj tjedan proletio, a vec sutra moram zapoceti radni vikend (dok se vecina vas raduje vikendu, ja od njega strepim, jer u zadnje vrijeme na poslu je prilicno stresno!)...odlucila sam napraviti jedan #throwbackthursday post, prvi takav post na mom blogu!
Vec sam znala objavljivati #TBT fotke na svom instagramu i facebooku, ali nisam jos nikada toj temi posvetila cijeli blog post!
Ideja se rodila iz mojeg razmisljanja o prolaznosti vremena...pocela sam razmisljati kako je brzo proletio ovaj tjedan...pa cekajte malo, i cijela prosla godina! ...a nakon toga sam se samo nadovezala kako je brzo proslo i cijelo desetljece!
Buduci da to nisu najkonstruktivnije misli, jer ja zaista nastojim ne razmisljati previse o proslosti, vec uvijek gledati naprijed i sigurnim korakom krociti u buducnost, uvijek se boreci za bolje sutra, odlucila sam sa vama podijeliti sto sam radila prije gotovo tocno deset godina, kako bi se zajedno malo nasmijali i nakon toga ponosno krenuli dalje :-)

Ja sam naime, prije skoro tocno deset godina, na poziv jedne londonske modne agencije, radila "test shooting" u dvorcu Ingatestone, u mjestu Ingatestone, UK.
Bilo je to moj prvi profesionalni set i bila sam jako uzbudjena!
Frizuru i make up radili su mi profesionalno, a outfite sam slozila sama!
Moj plan bio je sakupiti fotografije za portfolio i raditi kao komercijalni model (katalozi, reklame itd.) i hostesa na eventima. Taj posao trebao mi je omoguciti izvor prihoda kojim bih si mogla platiti jednu od poznatih londonskih skola za vizaziste i esteticare! Bio je to moj san, ali financijska situacija nije mi dopustala upis u tako prestiznu skolu.

U zivotu je bitno boriti se za bolje sutra, imati san i raditi na njegovom ostvarenju, ne posustajati! Moze se desiti i da vam se san nece ostvariti, jer ne zivimo u bajci, ali znati cete da ste borac i da ste svome cilju bili predani do kraja!

Gledam ove fotografije i danas, nakon deset godina, uvidjam da sam u pozama bila preukocena i sramezljiva pred foto aparatom. S godinama sam se naucila opustiti, eksperimentirati sa razlicitim pozama i uglovima (govorim o fotografiranju!!!), zabaviti se ispred foto aparata, kako bih vise toga unijela u fotografiju i dala najbolje od sebe!
Uvijek ima mjesta za napredovanje i poboljsanje!


ja, 10 godina kasnije!

O mom modnom stilu necemo ni govoriti...bila sam tada u nekoj "monochrome" fazi ("monochrome" roza, da budemo jasni!)...ne mogu se sjetiti samo, da li je to tada bio trend, ili sam samo ja brijala taj neki film u glavi??
Na ovim prvim "roza" fotografijama, nedostaju moje roza cizmice i torbica koja ide sa njima u kompletu! Ne znam zasto sam ih taj dan odlucila ostaviti doma i zamijeniti svojim bijelim antilop cizmama...Da, da, tako sam ja hodala po svijetu!
Pogledajte bolje moje nausnice: I one su bile roza boje! (Sama sam ih napravila, jer dok sam zivjela u Londonu, velika strast bila mi je izrada nakita!)
U cijeloj toj "roza" prici jedino mi nije jasan moj remen: Kako se on u nju uklapa i zasto nisam imala roza remen??
U svakom slucaju, mozda cete prepoznati ovaj remen iz mojih mnogobrojnih modnih videa!
To mi je i dan danas jedan od najdrazih remena i najcesce ga nosim!

Drugi outfit je prilicno "up-to-date", suvremen dakle, moglo bi se reci! ha!
Krisp antilop jaknica i dalje je u mom ormaru i volim je nositi, pokazala se dobrom kupovinom!
Sljokicaste traperice? Ne bas! Ali, imam ih jos i ....pssst!...cula sam da ce se vratiti u modu!...kad-tad! :-D


Sto reci o trecem outfitu?
Mala crna haljina, klasican komad odjece kojega ja...nisam imala u ormaru! Haljina je naime posudjena od jedne djevojke koja je isti dan sa mnom radila test- shooting!
Mene tada bezvremenske, klasicne, jednostavne stvari uopce nisu interesirale! Sve je moralo biti upadljivo, pretjerano i u posljednjem trendu!

Iako i danas volim pratiti trendove, mislim da sam se ipak malo pomakla sa te tocke i da se moj stil razvija u pravom smjeru :-)

Nadam se da vam je ovaj post bio zabavan! Da li biste voljeli vidjeti slicne postove na mom blogu i u buducnosti?
Ostavite mi u komentarima vas odgovor!

Ingatestone dvorac i sama lokacija su predivni! Jos uvijek mogu osjetiti uzbudenje tog dana!


P.S. Za citatelje/ice koji prate moj hrvatski youtube kanal, imam novi video!
Pogledajte sto sam si kupila na Zarinim zimskim snizenjima!

  21. Fashion is fascinating, it changes a little bit every year and all of a sudden you look back a couple of years and start thinking "what was I even doing..?" I feel so sorry for our kids that are gonna have their whole 'awkward' period documented and imprinted on the internet!
