shopping ban (today's outfit)/( današnja odjevna kombinacija )zabrana kupovine

About a year ago I read an article in German Vogue  about girls who decided to give up shopping for a year. I'm not exactly fluent in German but I understood why they did and long story short I decided to do it too (at least for the spring). Limitation can make us more creative. I'll keep you posted:)Btw Thank you for your kind wishes, I still feel a bit under the weather but I can't stand being indoors any more. xoxo

Prošle godine pročitala sam članak u njemačkom Vogeu o djevojkama koje su se odrekle kupovine na godinu dana. Nije mi baš njemački najača strana, ali uspijela sam razumijeti zašto su odlučile to i ukratko i ja si uvodim sličnu zabranu barem ovog proljeća. Nekad su ograničena izvor kreativnosti. Usput hvala na lijepim željama, još se osjećam pa ne baš najbolje, ali ne mogu više biti u kući. Pozdrav

  17. As much as I would be reluctant to do this, I definitely think I should! I can see how it would make you more resourceful...and a little less broke haha :)

  18. If you have such perfect outfit in your closet it´s really not necessary to shop <3 For myself I fear it´s really difficult not to shop ... wish you many success and a perfect weekend, dear ♥

  19. Super ti je suknjica :))
    I ja sam odlučila da više ne kupujem manijakalno, ormar mi je ionako prepun stvari koje nemam kad nositi tako da ću ih sad pokušati iskoristiti maksimalno :)

  30. Hello Ivana,

    you know that i come from Germany, but unfortunately i dont read the article.

    I cant image, that i dont go shopping for a year. I would miss some great new fashion styles and clothings.

    Wow, you hold on during spring - dont you miss to buy clothings, shoes, handbags,...?

    Bye.

    1. I didn't mind this shopping bag. I only did it for one Spring and Summer and it a good way to make me use my clothes in a better way. Sometimes when we don't buy new things, we appreciate the old ones better....but I'm not ready to completely give up shopping.

    2. "Sometimes when we don't buy new things, we appreciate the old ones better...." - you´re absolutely right. Clothings in our closets are even great. "Old" means not "... i dont wear it anymore", it give us the opportunity for some new fashion combos - a little bit of "Mixery-Suff".

      However, i want to miss buy new clothes - specially to buy this for cheap money..:-)

      Bye.

    3. for that reason, I'm happy I'm not under a shopping bag right now.

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.

HOW TO STYLE A BROWN FAUX LEATHER COAT?

Today I'll show you a couple of ways to start a brown faux leather/ faux fur coat. We'll start with a more dressed up version. Now, this brown coat comes with a faux fur hoodie and that gives it more of a casual vibe, similar to that of a parka jacket. So, I decided to dressed it up with accessories (always the best way to dress up an item). I paired this coat with predominately black accessories: a pair of stilettos, a bag, a pair of earrings and a headband. I also wore a statement necklace. The dress I was wearing under the coat was a simple grey dress (bought at Terranova some time ago), so I wasn't afraid to pile on the accessories.  Scroll down to see and read more.  DIY HEADBAND PROJECT: HOW I HAND SEWED THE FLORAL APPLICATIONS You already had the chance of seeing this DIY headband many times, but it's been a whole since I showed you how I actually made it. I found some floral applications and just sewed them onto the headband. I often avoid gluing in my DIY proj…

20+ WAYS TO WEAR A TARTAN BLAZER FOR COLD WEATHER

Tartan is a true classic if you ask me. If you are a fan of this pattern, you might enjoy this post. Today I'll show you 20 plus ways to style a green tartan blazer for cold weather, starting with how I wore this green tartan blazer a few days ago. It was such a lovely day! Don't you just love those sunny winter days? I always feel better when it is sunny, even when it's a bit cold. On this particular sunny day, I decided to wear my tartan blazer. I wore two layers under it and topped it with a faux fur stole, so I was feeling quite warm and cozy. I paired it with a dusty pink skirt and a very comfy (and old) pair of brown heeled boots. 

Anyhow, when I went on this sunny stroll with a colleague of mine, she complimented me on this green tartan blazer. That made me reflect on how many times I have worn  this tartan blazer. While I didn't keep a written record and cannot give you a precise number, I can tell you that this green blazer is one of the most worn items in my …

10 STYLE LESSONS LEARNED FROM MALENA/ MONICA BELLUCCI

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…
