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.

TWO WAYS TO STYLE A SCARF (SUSTAINABLE FASHION FILES)

Today I'll show you two ways to style a scarf: one is by wrapping it around your headband and the other by using it as a belt for your dress.  I'm also going to link up old posts with more ideas for styling this scarf, offering you about a dozen ideas. The first idea is a common one. Wearing a belt around your dress is an easy way to accentuate your waist. The other outfit proposal shows a fresh styling trick: wearing your scarf wrapped around your headband. Yes, you read that right. This is actually such an easy way to make the most out of your headband(s). I own only one headband but by wrapping different scarves around it, it seems like I have a dozen of them.  As for the two outfits I'm going to show to you, they are both summer ones. The colour palette for these looks is pretty neutral, but I jazzed it up by choosing printed white items. I do like the freshness that the white colour offers, but as a lover of prints I tend to compromise by opting for printed white ite…

FASHION ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY: ILLUSTRATED TOTE BAGS REDBUBBLE

I don't know what it is about the combination of tote bags and fashion illustrations that I like so much. Maybe it is simply a matter of combining two things that I love. I adore tote bags for their practicality, I like to carry one with me (often tucked in my regular bag) at all times because you never know. We all know that the typical disposable plastic grocery bags are a huge no-no for the environment, so a tote bag is a must (even if just for grocery shopping).  I personally like to wear tote bags even on occasions that have nothing to do with grocery lists, but to each his own. As for fashion illustration, well I don't have to explain that. I have literally loved fashion illustration for as long as I can remember. Joining my creative skills with tote bags seemed logical! Some of you might remember that I even hand painted some vintage tote bags. In fact, you had the chance of seeing one of those tote bags recently here. As much as I enjoy using textile prints, I also li…

SUMMER TO AUTUMN OUTFITS FEATURING A VINTAGE BLACK MAXI DRESS

Today I'll show you seven ways  to wear a black maxi dress. This beautiful vintage dress was gifted to me by a family member. I don't own many solid black maxi dresses (probably because I'm addicted to bold prints and colours). I do own quite a few little black dress (because a LBD is such a classical piece) but not that many black ones in maxi length. In fact, I believe this is the only plain black maxi dress I own. I find it really easy to style. I treat this maxi as a neutral piece and I wear it all year round. I actually added embroidery to it (it's a hobby of mine) but the embroidery detail isn't that big (for now) so I tend to style it as a plain black dress. By that I mean that I like to have fun with accessories when I wear this dress. I often wear it with statement necklaces I made myself or similar eye-catching accessories. Anyhow, I figured that with the summer to autumn transitioning that is going on right now, it would make sense to show you some tran…
