DIY (espadrilles) + outfit post / Ukrašavanje espandrila i odjevna kombinacija has been a long day. I had to get up early to catch a ride to Split. During the day a number of odd things happened such as having to walk barefoot from the beach because my shoes fell apart (fortunately my home in Split is near the beach) and accidentally locking myself in the bathroom. 

Anyhow, this is what I wore the day before yesterday for a walk with my dog near my home in Mostar. I really like midi skirts, this one is vintage and the smurfs tee ( bought at kids department) I just think is cute...

 I hope you like my DIY, it's pretty simple and I think it had made these espadrilles a bit more interesting. Sure, they're not real espadrilles (the real ones are made in a specific way)...yet I like the ones that are inspired by this popular and once only peasant footwear.

Jučer bijaše čudan dan. Hodati po užarenom asfaltu jer su mi japanke pukle bilo je zanimljivo, iako i bolno srećom plaža mi nije daleko od stana...a onda čekati da me spase iz kupaonice u koju sam se greškom zaključala ( no barem sam konačno počupala obrve)...da, stvarno čudan dan.
Uglavnom, ovo je prekjučerašnja odjevna kombinacija. Volim suknje ispod koljena, ova mi se baš sviđa...kao i ova majica na štrumfetu. Malo sam ukrasila ove espandrile i sada su mi zanimljivije...Nisu zapravo prave espandrile koje se izrađuju baš od platna i špage, ali volim sve cipele koje su nadahnute ovom nekada isključivo seljačkom obućom....možda i naš opanak jednom postane ludo popularan:)


  1. Odlicna suknja, san za kombiniranje! Fora DIY! ;) I sama sam neki dan hodala bosa i opekla se ali vlastitom odlukom jer sam na moru konstantno bosa pa sam se preracunala oko topline asfalta ;)

    1. da, baš se zagrije...i ja ljeti volim hodati bosa nekad pomislim zašto na uopće trebaju cipele...ali valjda je vrući asfalt jedan od razloga.

  2. My dear Ivana, as I have told before, i adore your creativity and your sense of style.

  6. Bome ti je zanimljiv bio dan, morala sam se nasmijati na zaključavanje u zahod (ali ajde barem si kvalitetno iskoristila vrijeme u zatočeništvu) :)))

  12. Great way to design, how did you lock yourself? I locked myself in the bathroom as a child and was so upset that when I managed to unlock the door I ran out and smacked right into the patio glass door thinking it was open lol, I was fine though, xoxo.

    1. yes, it's an odd feeling...makes me feel for all those who are imprisoned for any amount of time, especially a long one.

  13. Adorable DIY, I love your idea :)

  14. Hello Ivana,

    i like posts about footwear a lot. You had a great idea to put on some dots on these shoes - they looks really nice.

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.

My fashion illustration of the day + book review / Moja modna ilustracija dana + ogled knjige ( Le Diable au corps) 6.12.2016

This morning I read an amazing novel. Le Diable au corps (translated as The Devil In the Flesh) is a novel by Raymond Radiquet. Believe it or not, this was by first book by this French writer. I don't think I even heard of him before, which is odd, but well, it happens. In his time, Raymond was quite a celebrity and he is still considered as one of the important French writers of that period. Did I like this novel? Quite frankly, I loved it. I just couldn't put this novel down. I must have read it an hour or so. I got up a bit more earlier this morning so I actually had time to read it with my morning coffee (it is not a very long novel but still it is amazing how easy it was to find one's self glued to those pages). Perhaps I should make it a habit, getting up more early so I can read more. 
Jutros sam pročitala divan roman. Đavo u tijelu  (naslov izvornika Le Diable au corps) je roman Raymonda Radiqueta. Vjerovali ili ne, ovo je moj prvi roman ovoga pisca. Mislim da nika…

Fashion illustrations of the day (markers)

Hello darlings! How are you? Can you believe that February ends today? This month has just flown by. I know it's the shortest month in the year but still. Today I'm going to share 3 fashion illustrations and sketches with you. The medium for all of them is marker on paper. I don't work with markers that often, but sometimes it is good to try something different. The fashion sketches I'm sharing are all about 3 colours: purple, green and red. Spring is in the air, so this is my reflection on all those trends for the new season. The first illustration shows a girl wearing a purple and blue jumpsuit. The second illustration features a girl wearing a transparent green dress with a top and a skirt under that dress. The third illustration shows two girls in red gowns.


February Recap (art & DIY projects & outfits)

I've put a lot of effort into blogging this February, I hope it shows. As far as the content goes, February was similar to January, mostly a mix of my illustrations and outfit posts (here). This month I was full of positing ideas and I managed to make many of them happen. I feel pretty good about that. The only thing I feel bad about is making my blog monolingual and not using my other languages, but translating texts from English to other languages takes such a long time. It is so much easier to just write in English.  Hopefully, I'll manage to change that and make my blog multilingual again. I need to organize my time better. Fingers crossed. For March I already have a few posts prepared. You can expect more art (mostly fashion illustrations) & outfit posts. 

I shared two DIY projects in February, one about making a Barbie dress, the other was about how to paint a plant container. I don't have any DIY projects prepared for March, but I'm sure that I…
