true colours (outfit post) / prave boje (odjevna objava)

This beautiful mural is located in hospital Bijeli Brijeg in Mostar and it is a lovely sight to behold. I couldn't help noticing it  while waiting for my husband to come back from his head scan. After the scan, the two of us went for a stroll and took a lot of  photographs. If anyone wants to see photographs of lovely Mostar city, you have come to the right place today. My outfit is quite colourful, but I guess that won't be a surprise to anyone. I'm wearing one of my May's DIY projects...can you spot what it is? 

Ovaj prekrasni mural je smješten u bolnici Bijeli Brijeg u Mostaru i stvarno ga je lijepo vidjeti. Nisam ga mogla ne primijetiti dok sam čekala muža da se vrati s snimanja glave. Nakon snimanja, nas dvoje smo išli prošetati, a uslikali smo i puno fotografija pa tko želi vidjeti fotografije lijepog Mostara došao je na pravo mjesto. Moja odjevna kombinacija je poprilično šarena, ali mislim da to nikog neće iznenaditi. Nosim nešto što sama sama napravila ovog svibnja, možete li pogoditi o čemu se radi?

 the hospital's cafeteria has a funny name, it's called infusion.  People in Mostar are quite known for their sense of humour. 



 The verses you can see are written in an old glagolitic script and they are actually lyrics from a poem of one of my favourite Croatian poets.

DIY of the day (how to make an eco friendly necklace?) / Napravi sam projekt dana (kako napraviti ekološku ogrlicu?)




Well, obviously the best way to make an eco friendly necklace is to use either organic or recycled materials. I made this necklace  using the latter, that is,  extra fabric from one red denim skirt, little bit of cardboard, a bit of fabric old pillowcase and red acrylic paint

The base of the necklace is made from red denim, I just tied them together. The necklace  has one big heart attached to it. The heart you see is made from cardboard and it is covered first with white fabric from an old pillow case (sewn over it, not glued to it). Finally, I decorated the heart with acrylic paints. 

That's it! About 15 minutes of work and you end up with a really unique necklace. Will you try it?

Očito je najbolji način za napraviti ekološki prihvatljivu ogrlicu koristiti ili organske ili reciklirane materijale. Napravila sam ovu ogrlicu koristeći posljednje tj. malo tkanine koja mi je ostala od jedne crvene suknje od jeansa, malo kartona, malo tkanine s stare jastučnice i crvenu akrilnu boju.

Baza ogrlice je napravljena od crvenog jeansa, jednostavno sam povezala trakice zajedno. Ogrlica ima jedno veliko srce koje možete vidjeti na slikama, a napravljeno je od kartona koje je prekriven prvo tkaninom s stare jastučnice (ušivenom ne zaljepljenom). Na kraju sam ukrasila srce crvenom akrilnom bojom. 

To bi bilo to. Petnaestak minuta posla i dobijete posve jedinstveno ogrlicu. Hoćete li pokušati?

Two ways to style a red vintage shirt/ Dva načina za nositi crvenu vintage shirt

I didn't plan to post these photographs because they were taken with a smartphone, but then I remembered someone asked to see the bag I hand painted with fabric paints featured in an outfit.  Your wish is my command. Both of these outfits I have worn on the same day and they both feature a vintage red shirts, so hence the title. One way to wear vintage shirt would be with mom jeans and pointy boots and the second one would be with a semi plaid skirt and shoes that I decorated with nail polish last year. I do love this vintage shirt, it's so versatile! The photographs were taken in Mostar.

Nisam planirala objaviti ove fotografije jer su slikane s mobitelom, ali onda sam je sjetila da je netko od vas tražio da vidi torbicu koju sam sama oslikala tekstilnim bojama u odjevnoj kombinaciji. Vaša želja, moja zapovijed. Obje ove kombinacije sam nosila istog dana, a ponavlja se ista košulja, zato sam i dala takav naslov. Dakle, jedan način za nošenje vintage košulje bi bilo s trapericama ravnog kroja i visokog struka te špicokama, a drugi bi bio s djelomičko plisiranom suknom i cipelama koje sam sama ukrasila lakom prošle godine. Jako volim ovu košulju, ide uz sve! Fotografije su slikane u Mostaru.

I consider Bruce Lee to be  a really important person, not as an action star, but as a man who pioneered self defense for woman.  He is not the first guy you think of when you think of woman empowerment, but he changed the way we think of marshal arts and he taught us there are ways to defend ourselves no matter  our size.  I didn't believe this was a real site statue until I was photographs of dancers from  Contemporary Dragon KungFu Company next to it in the papers. Last month I  had the chance of seeing this dance group founded by Jackie Chan perform live here in Mostar. If you ever get the chance to see them, take it. These guys were amazing!

Smatram Bruce Lee-a jako važnom osobom, ne jer je bio akcijska zvijeda već jer je približio samobranu svima, a posebno ženama time što nas je naučio da veličina nije važna i da postoje načini da se obranimo. Nije prva osoba koja pada na pamet kada mislimo o osnaživanju žena, ali imao je svoju ulogu zasigurno. Nisam vjerovala da je kip u prirodnoj veličini dok se plesači iz Contemporary Dragon KungFu Company nisu slikali pored njega. Prošli mjesec sam gledala nastup ove plesne grupe koju je osnovao Jackie Chan ovdje u Mostaru i baš su fantastični, ako imate priliku svakako ih pogledajte.

outfit post (new in) / odjevna kombinacija( nešto novo)

I wore this outfit last Sunday. It was raining all morning and than the sun miraculously made an appearance....I bet the tourists in Split were happy about that, they looked terribly confused during those rainy days we had last week. What can I say in our defense? Even in the Caribbeans there is bound to be a rainy season. Mediterranean climate is wonderful but even we get a few rainy days once in a while.

Nosila sam ovu odjevnu kombinaciju prošle nedjelje. Kišilo je cijelo jutro i onda se odjednom pojavilo sunce. Sigurna sam da su turisti u Splitu odahnuli, izgledali su grozno zbunjeno tijekom prošlotjednih kišnih dana. Što mogu reći u našu obranu? Čak i na Karibima nekad dođe kišna sezona. Mediteranska klima je predivna stvar, ali i mi imamo kišnih dana ponekad.
green dress/ zelena haljina: Moda in (iskreno se nadam da nisu bankrotirali jer im je trgovina nestala iz moga kvarta, ako tko ima informaciju gdje je nova i ima li je u Splitu, molim da mi javi)
folklore bag/folklorna torba: hand made for me by my late grandmother / napravila ju je za mene moja pokojna bajka
white faux leather jacket/ bijela jakna od eko kože: Tally Weijl
scarf in my hair/ šal u kosi: (gift from my friend Ivana/ Ivanin poklon)---hvala još jednom draga ako čitaš!
shoes/ cipele: Peko



You must be really getting tired of this green dress. I must have worn it in 101 outfit posts so far, but you know what? This is probably not the last time...Besides, I often wear my clothes until they fall apart...I'm environmentally friendly that way, I allow them to recycle on their own;). Joking aside, I bought new shoes at Peko that I literally plan to wear all the time.  I haven't taken them off my feet since the day I bought them (except to go to sleep obviously) and I have already walked miles in them. They have this retro vibe that I really dig and right now I need some extra help to feel good. So far, these shoes have done a wonderful job taking my attention out of some issues. Plus, I bought them in an outlet so they were a real bargain. I plan to wear them as often as I can so prepare yourself for lack of shoe diversity in the posts to come.

Sigurno vam je već dosadila ova zelena haljina, sigurno sam je nosila u već sto odjevnih kombinacija, ali znate što? Često nosim odjeću dok se ne raspadne, na taj sam čudan način čak i pomalo ekološko svjesna, omogućavam odjeći da se sama reciklira;) Šalu na stranu, kupila sam nove cipele u Peka koje planiram nositi dok se ne raspadnu. Nisam ih skinula s nogu otkada sam ih kupila, osim za spavanje očito i već sam puste kilometre prohodala u njima. . Imaju neki starinski štih koji mi se jako sviđa, a trenutno mi treba malo pomoći da se osjećam bolje.Zasada su mi ove cipelice lijepo odvratile pozornost s nekih problema, a i bile su povoljne jer sam ih kupila u outletu. Nositi ću ih stalno, pa se pripremite na monotoniju po pitanju izbora obuće na ovom blogu.

Today I'm inspired by lovely Marina. I really like the bohemian chic vibe in this casual outfit. Check out her blog for more inspiration. Have a nice day!

Danas sam nadahnuta s lijepom Marinom. Jako mi se sviđa boemski šik u ovoj ležernoj kombinaciji. Pogledajte njen blog za još nadahnuća. Želim vam ugodan dan!

Hi there! Thank you for your lovely comments about my short story.  Anyhow, today I'm presenting you with one outfit post.

I have also publshed a photo from another recent DIY so that you can see how the illustration looks like when worn. My work here is done:)

Zdravo! Hvala vam svima na lijepim komentarima o mojoj kratkoj priči. Danas vam predstavljam jednu odjevnu objavu, a široke hlače koje nosim ukrasila sam tektilnim bojama (ovdje) i kao što sam obećala, uklopila sam ih u jednu kombinaciju. Također sam objavila i fotografiju drugog nedavnog uradi sam projekta, tako da vidite kako ilustracija izgleda kada je nošena. Posao obavljen:)
