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.

Wearing the First Dress I Ever Made: A Grey Midi Dress

Here it is: the first dress I have ever made entirely by myself. I did make some summer dresses in the past, but I had sown them without a pattern and a sewing machine and at any rate I wouldn't call them very accomplished. I mean, they weren't nearly as polished as this dress and they were not nearly as complex to make. I'm very happy with how this dress turned out. I'm even happier I took this sewing course in the first place because now I can make more dresses like this one! If you remember my November highlights post, you might remember that I've mentioned how I've recently finished a beginning fashion tailoring and sewing course with designer Stanka Zovko. 

I promised to show you the dress I made for my course 'graduation'. At the end of this lovely sewing course, you get to choose not only what you're going to make, but also the material and the pattern.  The sewing pattern is typically chosen from one of the sewing magazines this designer has …

February recap / sažetak veljače

You have seen (more or less) what was February like for me. Now tell me... what was February like for you? Are you happy that it's already March or do you feel like time is flying too fast?Are you looking forward to the spring?

 As far as blogging goes, it seems that I have became more focused on fashion illustrations. In the next month the illustrations will have their place, but there will be more focus on DIY....or at least I think so, because I'm kind of heading in that direction. Apart from that, I have no plans. I have so many ideas when it comes to what I want to blog about, that I often have hard time deciding what not to include. As always, feel free to write about what you would like to see.

Vidjeli ste (više-manje) kako sam provela veljaču...sada mi recite, kakav je vama bio prošli mjesec? Veselite li se proljeću? Jeste li jedva dočekali ožujak ili vam je vrijeme prebrzo proletjelo? Ne zaboravite da nam možda i nije još stiglo i da ime za mjesec ožujak potječe od st…

How To Style Animal Print? + An Autumnal Fairy Tale at Ethno Village Near Medugorje

With winter at our doorstep, I think it's important to make the most out of the left over autumn days. With that in mind, my husband and I payed another visit to our favourite (still not officially opened!) ethno village in vicinity of Medugorje. I wrote about this eco/ethno village a number of times, so if you want to know more (or just see more photographs) feel free to check out my old posts herehereherehere and here.  Autumn is Herzegovina is always gorgeous, and this year hasn't been an exception. We had some sudden weather changes and drastic changes of temperature, but I would still describe this autumn as a beautiful one. The Sunday this photographs were taken on was rather gorgeous, so I'm certainly glad we went on this little trip. I know I'm repeating myself, but I do cherish moments like this. Every time I step into this little village, I feel as if the time has stopped or rather like I have just travelled in time. It's such a charming place! I h…
