DIY+ sunday outfit post: find out how to refresh your old jeans !

How's the New Year been treating you? As the title suggests, today I'll be showing you two things.


No.1 DIY

I don't remember when I started working with textil colours, a few years ago I guess. I've always been big on DIY but long story short, this is something pretty easy. All you need is a bit of colour and a brush. If you can't paint to save your life you can always cut the shapes you want or just copy some image on your clothes.   I love to paint so this is something like  a dream come true for me. Combining painting and fashion, I mean what could be better? I made sure I took a lot of photos so you can see all the stages.








                                                             No. 2 The outfit
As you can see, I'm really keen on this two sized too big jeans trend. Some call it boyfriend jeans, but since my significant other is really skinny, I'm not sure that his jeans would fit me. I really like this jeans, that is why I decided to refresh them a bit with the spots. Actually, these jeans used to be black ( I mean literally like 10 years ago) and I have to say - that is some good quality jeans. The brand is  Amadeus jeans (Croatian). I'm not big on jeans to be frank, there is no way I could wear them two days in a row without feeling boring but how would our world look without denim? Hard to imagine it, right? So, my suggestion is: make sure the jeans you have are worth the money you spend on them. If anything should last it is the denim. Moving on...about the outfit...I like layering so this was how I've did it. The jacket is second hand and I love it. ( If you shop at second hand, try classical pieces like this one, because clothes used to be more expensive back in the day but also in the most cases the quality was much better than today) If anyone is wondering, the location is Međugorje, Bosnia and Herzegovina...as you can see the past Sunday was uncanny warm for this time of year and what a beautiful day it had been!






Irish pub Međugorje--- Notice the painting behind me, it's a bit rustic ...very well done.





Thank you for taking the time to read this:) xoxo

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

My fashion illustration of the day + book review / Moja modna ilustracija dana + ogled knjige ( Le Diable au corps) 6.12.2016

This morning I read an amazing novel. Le Diable au corps (translated as The Devil In the Flesh) is a novel by Raymond Radiquet. Believe it or not, this was by first book by this French writer. I don't think I even heard of him before, which is odd, but well, it happens. In his time, Raymond was quite a celebrity and he is still considered as one of the important French writers of that period. Did I like this novel? Quite frankly, I loved it. I just couldn't put this novel down. I must have read it an hour or so. I got up a bit more earlier this morning so I actually had time to read it with my morning coffee (it is not a very long novel but still it is amazing how easy it was to find one's self glued to those pages). Perhaps I should make it a habit, getting up more early so I can read more. 
Jutros sam pročitala divan roman. Đavo u tijelu  (naslov izvornika Le Diable au corps) je roman Raymonda Radiqueta. Vjerovali ili ne, ovo je moj prvi roman ovoga pisca. Mislim da nika…

Fashion illustrations of the day (markers)

Hello darlings! How are you? Can you believe that February ends today? This month has just flown by. I know it's the shortest month in the year but still. Today I'm going to share 3 fashion illustrations and sketches with you. The medium for all of them is marker on paper. I don't work with markers that often, but sometimes it is good to try something different. The fashion sketches I'm sharing are all about 3 colours: purple, green and red. Spring is in the air, so this is my reflection on all those trends for the new season. The first illustration shows a girl wearing a purple and blue jumpsuit. The second illustration features a girl wearing a transparent green dress with a top and a skirt under that dress. The third illustration shows two girls in red gowns.

February Recap (art & DIY projects & outfits)

I've put a lot of effort into blogging this February, I hope it shows. As far as the content goes, February was similar to January, mostly a mix of my illustrations and outfit posts (here). This month I was full of positing ideas and I managed to make many of them happen. I feel pretty good about that. The only thing I feel bad about is making my blog monolingual and not using my other languages, but translating texts from English to other languages takes such a long time. It is so much easier to just write in English.  Hopefully, I'll manage to change that and make my blog multilingual again. I need to organize my time better. Fingers crossed. For March I already have a few posts prepared. You can expect more art (mostly fashion illustrations) & outfit posts. 








DIY PROJECTS 
I shared two DIY projects in February, one about making a Barbie dress, the other was about how to paint a plant container. I don't have any DIY projects prepared for March, but I'm sure that I…
