City of light (outfit post) / Grad svjetla (odjevna kombinacija)

 Andrić,  Nobel award winner for literature, described Mostar with these words: "the city of light. " He said: "The light in this city is of special quality"...and I have to agree with him. These photos were taken with a mobile and it was getting late...but they came out pretty good all things considered. Perhaps the magic quality of light in Mostar?

On other note, this outfit is all about DIY. My mum made the top years ago and I loved it ever since...and remember that DIY bag from the other day? I'm really happy with how it turned out! Now, this gypsy dress you have had the chance to see before. I had bought it in Acireale (points for those who know where that is) years ago... Anyway, isn't it great when an item of clothing lasts for years....Baci di Aci! that  phrase stuck in my head:)

Andrić je nazvao Mostar gradom svjetla, rekavši, kako je svijetlo ovdje od posebne kvalitete...i moram se složiti sa njim. Ove fotografije su slikane mobitelom i već je bilo kasno, a opet nisu loše ispale...možda zbog magičnog svjetla u Mostaru? 

No, malo o odjevno kombinaciji...ima tu puno toga uradi sam...Npr. ovaj žuti top mama mi je davno ušila i od tada ga obožavam...i sjećate se one torbe koju sam ušila neki dan...evo kako izgleda. Nije loše, zar ne? Cigansku suknju vidjeli ste i prije, a kupila sam je davno u Acirealu (svaka čast ako znate gdje je to). Zar nije sjajno kada neki odjevni predmet traje godinama?

  20. Dear Ivana, yes, the light in Mostar seems really phantastic! And the highschool on the pictures is indeed abolutely gorgeous - but not to compare with you and your DIY-Outfit :) The top made by your Mom has the perfect colour for the light in Mostar and the skirt is perfect for the opportunity and looks so summerly!

    Wish you a wonderful rest of the weekend, dear Ivana!

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.

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…
