Zaljubila sam se u pozorište početkom prošle godine, i od tada sam pogledala sigurno desetak predstava. Koliko god da uživam u posmatranju umetničkih dela u ambijentu muzeja ili galerije do poslednjeg detalja, mislim da ne postoji mnogo toga što može da se meri s trenutkom kad umetnost oživi, poprimi pokret i glas pred vama na sceni, a onda počne da vas opčinjava tako da je pomno pratite sve dok se zavese ne spuste. Iz tog razloga se do sad nije desilo da uskratim aplauz glumcima zahvaljujući kojima umetnost živi - ne samo zbog izuzetnog nastupa, već i zbog same činjenice da se bave poslom kojim ja ne bih mogla da se bavim ni u snu. xD 
Iako sam neko ko čvrsto veruje da je pozorište za svakoga ko želi da uživa u dobroj predstavi i da pozorište pripada svima, volim da se doterujem svaki put kad idem u pozorište bez obzira na to šta gledam jer taj trenutak kad osetite umetnost svim svojim čulima za mene predstavlja posebnu priliku. Išla sam ja u pozorište i u ležernijim izdanjima, naravno, ali ako mi padne na pamet da obučem neku lepu haljinu za uživanje u predstavi ja ću to i uraditi. Ova predivna haljina je kreacija nigerijske modne dizajnerke Andree Iyamah i opčinila me je čim sam je pronašla na sajtu njenog ateljea u Lagosu. Njeno afričko nasleđe se ogleda u krojevima, bojama i dezenima njenih predivnih komada koji su prava umetnička dela, i svaki od njih je savršen izbor kad želite da izgledate elegantno i očaravajuće. 
Ovu haljinu sam nosila kad sam išla da gledam predstavu "Edip" u Jugoslovenskom Dramskom Pozorištu, i ova moderna adaptacija jednog od najčuvenijh komada antičke Grčke je nešto što bih svakome preporučila da pogleda. Kad je reč o haljini, dobijem ogroman nalet samopouzdanja kad god je obučem jer iako nisam savršeno građena (niti mi je to cilj), ona mi grli telo tako da se i sama u njoj osećam kao umetničko delo kome je udahnut život. I mislim da je to nešto što nam je svima potrebno s vremena na vreme i što svi zaslužujemo - da se osetimo kao umetničko delo, jer na neki način to i jesmo.



I fell in love with the theatre in the beginning of last year, and since then I probably watched around ten plays. As much as I enjoy observing works of art in the ambience of a museum or a gallery to the finest detail, I don't think that many things can compare to the moment when art comes alive, takes shape and gets a voice before your eyes on the stage, and then it mesmerizes you to follow it all the way until the curtains go down. That's why I never restrained from applauding to actors, those who make art come to life - not only because of their magnificent performance, but also for the sheer fact that their job is something I couldn't do in a million years. xD
Although I'm someone who strongly believes that theatre is for anyone who wants to enjoy a good play and that it belongs to everybody, I love dressing up whenever I go to the theatre regardless of the play that I'm about to watch because the moment you get to feel art with all your senses is a special occasion to me. I went to the theatre in casual outfits, of course, but if I get the idea to wear a beautiful dress to enjoy a play I'm gonna do it for sure. This wonderful dress is the creation of a Nigerian fashion designer Andrea Iyamah, and it took my breath away when I first saw it on the website of her atelier in Lagos. Her African heritage is embodied in the silhouettes, colors and patterns of her beautiful garments that are true works of art, and each and every one of them is the perfect choice if you want to look elegant and breathtaking.
I wore this dress when I went to watch "Oedipus" in the Yugoslav Drama Theatre, and this modern adaptation of one of the most famous plays from ancient Greece is something I'd recommend everyone. When it comes to the dress, I get a huge boost of confidence whenever I wear it because although I'm not built perfectly (nor do I aspire to be), it embraces my body in such a way that it makes me feel like a work of art that has come to life. And I believe that it's something we all need from time to time and that we all deserve - to feel like a work of art, because in a certain way we are one.

  34. Predivna haljina. Oduševila me unikatnim krojem i bojom koja izgleda jako bogato i raskošno. Također način na koji si je stilizirala je savršen, one štikle su predivne i takav statement komad. Također tvoja kosa je savršen, tako gusta i bujna.
