seventies forever... today's outfit+ DIY / tko ne bi volio biti u ludim sedamdesetima barem dan?;)

Can you guess the DIY in today's outfit? There are the jeans obviously...and those big earrings are my creation. The DIY pink shirt you cannot see well, but with a help of some paint, it is now  full of my favourite proverbs. You'll probably see the shirt when the weather gets warm enough to make coats unnecessary...  In the meantime you can see  a photo of "how it is made?"







 These earrings I have made about 8 years ago and as you can see they don't look as well as they used to...I still love them, though. They're very light so they don't hang heavy on the ears. In addition, they are one of a kind.

" Vivi e lascio vivere"  My life's philosophy. I think of myself as pretty much a tolerant person, I think we should embrace the fact we are created  unique and different from each other. I cannot understand people who refuse to accept others just because they have a different sexual or social  identity.


As you can see it was Christmas time when I was working on this shirt. I'm still searching for the right outfit for this shirt and the opportunity to show it to you.  As I said, this kind of DIY project is quite easy. The paint you need you can buy in Obi shops or somewhere else, I doubt that it is hard to find. Once again, thank you so much for reading.

Današnja odjevna kombinacija mogla bi se nazvati lude sedamdesete. Šta mogu? Obožavam zvone, košulje, umjetno krzno itd...Povremeno malo pretjerivanja može učiniti dan ljepšim, zar ne? Slojevito odjevanje je zakon zimi. Žao mi je što se ova roza košulja (zapravo muška košulja, ali ja volim i muške košulje) ne vidi baš dobro na fotografijama, ali biti će ljepših dana pa ću vam je cijelu pokazat. Ova tehnika slikanja po odjeći je super lagana, samo vam treba odgovarajuća boja koju možete kupiti pa u svakom hobby shopu u kojem sam bila u Hrvatskoj, a u Obiju u BiH. Eto toliko, hvala na čitanju!

statement necklace: my design/ ogrlica koju sam izradila





If we are to believe the historians, the first jewellery (or jewelry if you speak AE) was made  about  75 000 years ago and it was worn by the African ladies. In that sense, jewellery (BE) could just be the first fashion statement. Here is a necklace that I made from fimo.  I've only showed you one photo of it so far. What do you think? I love statement jewellery and statement necklaces are just about perfect way to do it. In winter I think they go perfect with turtle necks and shirts. This blue turtle neck is one of the few things that I have bought recently. I haven't done much shopping during the sales. 





Ako ćemo vjerovat povijesničarima, prvi nakit nosile su žene  u Africi prije 75 000 godina, pa nakit možda možemo smatrati i prvim modnim izričajem naše vrste.  Evo ogrlice od fima koju sam sama osmislila i napravila. Sviđa li vam se? Volim izražajan nakit, a velike ili upečatljive ogrlice zimi, rekla bih, savršeno idu preko košulja i dolčevita. Ova je plava dolčevita jedna od rijetkih stvari koje sam kupila u posljednje vrijeme. Pozdrav:)

yesterday's outfit: lenon sunnies/ jučerašnja odjevna kombinacija: lenonice

It seems that welcoming a sunny day with summer photos was a good idea, because yesterday was one of those perfect sunny winter days here in Mostar. Somehow wearing Lenon sunnies makes me feel Asian (perhaps that has something do with Yoko Ono, perhaps I have her image in my subconciousness) and besides they're just fun! Usually I opt for big classical sunnies, so this felt like a welcome change.

Izgleda da je bila dobra ideja jučer izjutra objaviti one ljetne fotografije jer je zaista jučerašnji dan bio sunčan, ako ne ljetni onda kao proljetni. Ja se neću buniti ako proljeće urani. Baš sam uživala u šetnji Mostarom jučer. Izvukla sam odnekuda ove stare lenonice  ( kojima se uvijek osjećam azijatski možda mi je slika Yoko Ono negdje u podsvijesti)  i baš mi je dobro došla promjera jer inače uvijek nosim velike crne sunčane. Nasmijala me neka bakica u prolazu koja je tražila veći osmijeh. Legenda! 
 Some old lady made me laugh with her comments. As my husband was taking photos, she asked me where my smile was, wanting to see a bigger one, so here it is.
 Once more, I'm wearing above the knee socks, this time Penti. I like them so much because they keep me warm. The rest of the outfit is no name. For some reason I avoid mals and highstreet brands.
 Mostar is a city that has many rivers. Obvioulsy, Neretva is the best know one, but there are many minor ones as you can see. If you're interested I can dig out photos of most of them.

 I'm almost one of those bird watchers. I don't do it as a hobby, but when I get a chance I can watch at birds for hours.
 Isn't this just the sweetest love couple? I love ducks, they're full of energy and craziness. You never know what they will do.
 A friend of mine once had a duck as a pet. Isn't that an idea? But probably they prefer living in  the wild.
 These are city ducks one could say. Isn't it great when a city has nice parks?
 I love it when you can feel relaxed in a city just by visiting a nice park.

 Yesterday it felt like spring. Perhaps the spring decided to come early?

Is there anything better than a lovely sunny day?

Catch me if you can....Have you seen that film btw, I really like it.
When I took this photo,  I was thinking something along "Sun deity please don't leave us!"
Thank you for reading this. xoxo

Hvala na čitanju! pozdrav:)

Split in the summertime: Split ljeti:Spalato nel periodo estivo

















Today it's a sunny day and I'll welcome it with some photographs of Split taken in the summer.

About the outfit:
the necklace- my creation/ ogrlica- moj rad
the green tee- vintage/ zelena majica- jako stara (to je moj prijevod za vintage, he he)
the denim pencil dress- no name ( nemam pojma koja marka)
bag and shoes- no name (isto)

etno selo u izgradnju i jedna stilizacija/ ethno village: under construction+ outfit post

Today I have something special to show you. Yesterday we went to Međugorje ( in Bosnia and Herzegovina) and decided to stop by in ethno village near by. I have already showed you photographs from one ethno village Herceg. This one is within a walking distance from that one, but is still under construction. I'm amazed by the design and the architecture of this place. You feel as if you have walked into a hundred years old village. I cannot wait to see it completed. As a true Dalmatian (not a breed of dog obviously, but someone from the region Dalmatia), I'm obsessed with anything constructed from stone. Photos from Međugorje will have to wait, I want to share with you this place first as you probably haven't had the chance to see it.

Danas sa vama lipi moji, želim podijeliti fotografije iz etno sela u blizini Međugorje koje je još uvijek u izgradnji. Nalazi se blizu etno sela Herceg, zapravo iz ovog sela možete vidjeti i to drugo, a i prošetati do njega. Oduševljena sam arhiktekturom i time kako je osmišljeno ovo mjesto. Stvarno se osjećate kao da ste zakoračili u neko stotinu godina staro selo. Jedva čekam da ga vidim dovršenog. Kao pravu Dalmatinku, privlači me sve što je izgrađeno iz kamena. Fotografije iz Međugorja će morati pričekati, želim sa vama prvo podijeliti dojmove iz ovog mjesta jer vjerovatno niste imali priliku prije ga vidjeti.


















About the outfit- O odjevnoj kombinaciji:

the wool beanie (pletena kapica)- handmade by granny (uplela bakica)
the faux fur ( lažno krzno)- bought at textile shop+ DIY (kupila sam ga u prodavaonici tekstila i dovršila)
black jacket (crna jaknica)- wanga jeans wear
the leather belt (kožni remen) - hand made by Sanja, a family friend. She's been working with leather since forever and I like everything she does. (Napravila ga je Sanja, kuma. Ona već godinama radi sa kožom i sviđa mi se sve  što napravi.)
the pants ( hlače): Fashion house Uzor (Modna kuća Uzor)
the boots (čizmice): Kiara F ......I'm not familiar with the brand, but I bought them in Leonardo, so if you have Leonardo shoe store  where you live you can probably find them. ( Nije mi poznata marka, ali kupila sam ih u Leonardo prodavaonici obuće ako to što kome znači, vjerovatno tamo možete pronaći isti model)
