DIY post: how to make a statement collar and some other stuff/ kako napraviti sam ukras za kosu i osvježiti košulju ukrašavanjem ovratnika i još ponešto

Danas sam vam pripremila par jako jednostavnih stvari koje možete sami uraditi. Today I have prepared for you a few very simple DIYs.

1. Istaknuti ovratnik to bi bio hrvatski prijevod od "statement collar" koji je u zadnje vrijeme u trendu.  Zapravo ovo nije prvi put da radim ovakvo nešto, već sam jedan ovratnik ukrasila ili kako bismo mi u Dalmaciji rekli kolet. Prvi put stavila sam zlatnu dugmad, pa je izgledalo pomalo kao nakit, ali ovaj put odlučila sam se za nešto jednostavnije. Pošto jako volim košulje, nemam srca nijednoj tek tako odrezati ovratnik, pa je varijanta koju sam odabrala jednostavno ukrasiti ovratnik košulje koju već imam ( u ovom slučaju već ukrašen bojama za tkaninu). Sve što vam treba je par botuna (dugmadi) u boji i igla i konac. Jako jednostavno!

In short, this would be my take on a statement collar trend. I don't have the heart to cut the collar of any of my shirts so I just decorate the collars on the shirts that seem appropriate for it. In this case the collar was already painted on with colours for it (by me a few years ago), so I just had to sew some buttons on it and called it a day. This is a very simple DIY, all you need is a needle and a few buttons.

Što vam se čini? Meni ovakav ovratnik baš djeluje veselo.
So, what do you think? To me it looks somehow very playful.

2. Vrpca za kosu
Vrlo jednostavan način rađenja ukrasa za kosu je umetnuti traku fijokić (mašnu) u običnu ukosnicu. Možete se poslužiti žicom da je učvrstite, a možete je i samo svezati. Vjerovatno kući imate malo satenske trake, ako ništa možete rastaviti onaj ukras koji dobijete u svatovima i tako napraviti mali ukras. Što vas se čini?

3. DIY How to make your own  satin bow?
To make your own satin bow, all you just need some satin cord (you can buy it anywhere) a bobby pin. To make a bow from a satin cord and attach it to an ordinary bobby pin. Very simple as I said and it's much easier this way. I've seen films about old times and women always used to tie their hair with satin cord but that looks kind of difficult and  I think that after a few times you would have to iron the satin anyway that is what I meant when I said this seems easier.

 šminka ...ovo je pomalo nespretan pokušaj slikanja šminke. (svaka sugestija o slikanju je dobrodošla) Za predprošli Božić dobila sam od nevjeste razna sjenila pa sam odlučila malo promjeniti nešto i pokušati staviti sjenilo u nekoj veselijoj boji. Ne šminkad se baš puno inače, iako mi ne bi bilo loše da se češće mažem zbog problema sa tenom, ali to je duga priča. Ovo bi bio nekakva dnevna šminka, malo maskare, tuša i malo sjenila roze boje. Što vam se čini?

Now a somewhat clumsy attempt of taking a photo of my make up. Any tips on the subject would be more than welcomed! I'm kind of boring when it comes to make up so I decided to try something new with a pink eye shadow. What do you think?

3. Kako oslikati običnu bijelu košulju?  Osim prvog prijedloga, a to je uređivanje ovratnika, možete uvijek nešto napisati na košulji. Ja volim slikati, ali pisanje je jednostavnije, pogotovo za vas koji možda ne volite crtanje i slično (ipak ne zaboravite na šablone to vam uvijek može pomoći). Zašto ne spojiti modu i moju ljubav prema jezicima.Mislim da ovo nisam spomenula prije, ali jedna od novogodišnjih odluka mi je naučiti hebrejski. 
How to refresh an ordinary white shirt? Besides the first DIY that involves a statement collar, you can always write something on it. ( For those of you who don't enjoy painting this is the perfect DIY) I love printed tees, so why not write on a shirt? Indeed, why shouldn't I join my love towards languages and fashion? All you need is some colour suitable for the job and you can buy that in any hobby shop.

I don't think I have mentioned this before but one of my resolution for this year is to learn Hebrew.  I like the sound of the language and the script is beautiful. What do you think about this DIY?

Hello darlings! It's suddenly gotten a lot colder here, but I still have one warm autumn styling proposal to share with you. I wore this cute neutral outfit while the sun was still shining bright. On that lovely sunny day, I decided to pair my white (authentic) folklore shirt with a striped mini, dark leggings and a dark green vest. I finished this look with my brown boots and a tartan belt. Besides this outfit, I will share another book review on my blog today. East West by Salman Rushdie also happens to falls into category of magic realism. I'm no stranger to Salman Rushdie,  I read Midnight's children a while back and I started but never finished Satanic Verses. This is the first time I read his short stories, though.  I really liked this collection and I can't wait to tell you all about it.

Hello, my darlings! I will be sharing two things with you today: a book review and an outfit post. This cozy outfit proposal features two printed items: a printed scarf and a skirt. The bluish scarf was a gift from a friend and I like how it looks with this camel coat (another gifted item). The wool/silk printed skirt is old, a creation from fashion house Edi. You had a change of seeing this unique floral print on the blog here , here and here. Under the camel coat I have worn this white blouse and this red blazer.  I completed the outfit with a red beanie and high brown boots.  It has gotten colder in Croatia even on the shore. Speaking of the shore, Kafka on the Shore is the novel I will be reviewing today.

With summer being in full spring, I caught myself thinking about iconic summer outfits. Do you know what came to my mind? Costumes/outfits worn by Monica Belluci when she played Malena Scordia in an iconic Italian movie set on Sicily.  The costumes for that movie were designed by an acclaimed Italian costume designer Maurizio Millenotti and he outdone himself! Seeing that Malena is a historical movie, Maurizio choose quite timeless outfits and cuts that will ever go out of style. That fact makes Malena movie the perfect place to look for inspiration! Moreover, I feel that Monica Belluci's personal style is quite similar to Malena's (i.e. to the style of the character she is playing). There is definitely a Mediterranean lady feel about Malena/Monica Bellucci. What says summer better than Mediterranean and Sicily? Today we'll analyze Malena's style and see what we can learn from her. There is much to learn! Having analyzed looks that Monica wore in iconic Malena film, I…
