grey vintage skirt (today's outfit post)/ siva vintage suknja (današnja odjevna kombinacija)

Hello my sweets:) Today I have worn this wonderful gray vintage skirt. I think it was supposed to be a maxi, but on me it's a midi...not that I'm complaining, I love the mid calf length. I paired it with a simple  body shirt and black (worn out) boots...Yes, I know these boots are seriously worn out, but I get sentimental about my shoes. (That is why I like dr. martens-- I just know those boots will always be with me).There was also a baseball cap to add a finishing touch to the outfit, but as these photos were taken when I got back home, the same was missing.  What do you think about rolled up sleeves? I like rolled up sleeves, perhaps because I love to have my hands free and it really is warm enough. Besides, it is practical especially when you're cooking, cleaning, gardening etc...

Today I'm finishing up Nostromo by Joseph Conrad (birth name Józef Teodor Konrad Korzeniowski) , one of my favourite writers...there is something magical in the way he writes. I've been reading this novel for quite some time and I just feel immersed in it...and yet at the same time I have this feeling that I perhaps don't understand everything that I should...This world he created in his novel feels both distant and near.

Zdravo, dragi moji. Danas sam nosila ovu divnu staru suknju, koja je mislim trebala biti duga, ali na meni je dužine do pola listova, no ne žalim se jer volim tu dužinu, a nosila sam je sa crnim bodijem i čizmama koje su prilično iznošene. ( sentimentalna sam oko obuće zato volim martensice jer znam da ću ih uvijek imati). Nosila sam i šiltericu da upotpunim kombinaciju,a li pošto su fotografije nastale kad sam došla kući već sam je bila skinula. Što mislite o zavrnutim rukavima? kod mene čini se uvijek jesu, to  je praktično, a i sviđa mi se.

Danas dovršavam roman Nostromo, čitam ga već dosta vremena... Joseph Conrad (ili Josef Konrad ako ćemo odbaciti angliziranu verziju njegovog imena) jedan je od mojih najdražih pisaca...ima mi nešto magično u njegovom stilu pisanja, ne znam to opisati, ali nekako baš imam osjećaj da sam unutar knjige dok je čitam, sve mi se čini tako stvarno, a opet tako daleko. Cijeli svijet ovoga romana čini mi se u istovrijeme i blizak i dalek.

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…

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 …

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…
