DIY (outfit post) / napravi sam (odjevna kombinacija)

about the outfit:
The outfit I'm presenting is all about DIY. This dark blue mini I accidentally burned while ironing so I had decided to cover the stain with lace. It worked like charm, the only problem is that I'm afraid the mini is a bit short (what do you think?)so I don't wear it often.

 The necklace was created in a moment of inspiration when I've decided that to best way to use a wire that fell out of my bra (don't you hate when that happens?) is by doing something creative with it. This tee with stripes I bought in Acireale about 7 years ago and I remember I paid it one euro in a china shop. I have a good memory or....perhaps I just love stories (as I explained in the last post, I love when there is a story that comes with an item of clothing.
                                                              about the location:
The church you see behind me is located in Široki Brijeg, a town in Herzegovina. It may just be the most beautiful church in this region. I love architecture and I've seen a lot of churches but this one for some reason, seems special. In Croatia, the one that stands out for me is the cathedral in Šibenik and in Italy I was most impressed by the cathedral in Orviento.  I love things made from stone, small or big.

O odjeći:
Dragi moji, ova odjevna kombinacija... modra suknjica (minica ili kako god) je bila progorena pri peglanju jer je netko često jako smotan, ali sam ispravila nepažnju tako što sam na nju prišila bijelu čipku što je zapravo jako lijepo ispalo. Samo mi se čini da mi je malo prekratka (što vi mislite?) pa je rijetko nosim.

Ogrlicu sam napravila u trenutku inspiracije koristeći za taj privjesak žicu koja je ispala iz grudnjaka (zar nije grozno kad se to dogodi?) tako da mi je baš zanimljivo ispala. Majicu na pruge kupila sam u Acirealu davnih dana, a sjećam se da sam je platila jedan euro...Ili imam dobro sjećanje ili kako sam već napisala, volim priče koje idu uz odjeću.

O lokaciji:
Ova crkva mi je zapravo najljepša u Herzegovini. Vidjela sam puno crkava, volim arhitekturu, ali iz nekog razloga ova mi je posebna...teško je znati točno zašto. U Hrvatskoj mi je najljepša katedrala u Šibeniku, a u Italiji mi se najviše svidjela katedrala u Orvientu. Jako me privlači kamen i svi radovi od kamena.


  1. I love churches made of stones! This is wonderful.. so high and magnificent! <3 <3 I love green too.. and your outfit is super :) As you! Lots of kisses and have a good night

  2. That looks really nice. Have a great day.

  3. That church is so interesting and you look so pretty :)

  4. Ciao IVana! Sei molto creativa, mi piace come hai aggiustato la gonna e la collana è molto carina! Un bacio!

  5. Dearest Ivana, I´m always impressed about your great ideas! To be honest I have never thought about to do a DIY with the wire which felt out of the bra - and the necklace looks indeed good. And regarding the misfurtune during ironing, this happens to me fortunately very seldom because I hate it to iron and I try to avoid it as much I can ;) It was a great idea, too, to cover it with lace!

    And the inside of the church is absoultely my taste - I like such pure churches. The churches here in our region are mostly a bit overloaded with stucco and gold ...

    Wish you a wonderful rest of the evening <3

  6. Čipka se super stopila sa suknjom,i odlično ti pristaje,nije kratka!

  7. amazing church! And you look so pretty ;)

  8. Odlicna ideja... i cipka i zica id grudnjaka... meni tako nesto nikada ne bi palo napamet :-) Po meni, suknja ti nije prekratka.... imas lijepe noge i jako ti lijepo stoji :-) Crkva je jako lijepa... i ja sam pobornica ovakvog tipa arhitekture i nisu mi lijepe ove neke nove koje izgledaju kao svemirski brodovi...

  9. I love the skirt, accidently looks awesome and I admire already your diy :)

Hello, my darlings! I will be sharing two things with you today: a book review and an outfit post. This cozy outfit proposal features two printed items: a printed scarf and a skirt. The bluish scarf was a gift from a friend and I like how it looks with this camel coat (another gifted item). The wool/silk printed skirt is old, a creation from fashion house Edi. You had a change of seeing this unique floral print on the blog here , here and here. Under the camel coat I have worn this white blouse and this red blazer.  I completed the outfit with a red beanie and high brown boots.  It has gotten colder in Croatia even on the shore. Speaking of the shore, Kafka on the Shore is the novel I will be reviewing today. 
Murakami is a writer whom most readers either love or dislike. Options are rather divided when it comes to Murakami, some say he is genius, other claim all his novels are alike. Do you know of whom does Murakami reminds me? Of a cat! He…


Today I'll review a true classic of children's literature: The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, a book by L. Frank Baum. I have read this book fairly recently, so it is still fresh in my mind. I have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised by The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. I actually enjoyed it a lot, so my book review is also  a book recommendation.  This classic of children literature is such a well rounded tale. You can read The  Wonderful Wizard of Oz for free on the pages of project Gutenberg here (that's also the source for the quotes I'm going to use).

First, a few words from the author himself:  Folklore, legends, myths and fairy tales have followed childhood through the ages, for every healthy youngster has a wholesome and instinctive love for stories fantastic, marvelous and manifestly unreal. The winged fairies of Grimm and Andersen have brought more happiness to childish hearts than all other human creations.Yet the old time fairy tale, having served for generations, m…


Hello darlings! It's suddenly gotten a lot colder here, but I still have one warm autumn styling proposal to share with you. I wore this cute neutral outfit while the sun was still shining bright. On that lovely sunny day, I decided to pair my white (authentic) folklore shirt with a striped mini, dark leggings and a dark green vest. I finished this look with my brown boots and a tartan belt. Besides this outfit, I will share another book review on my blog today. East West by Salman Rushdie also happens to falls into category of magic realism. I'm no stranger to Salman Rushdie,  I read Midnight's children a while back and I started but never finished Satanic Verses. This is the first time I read his short stories, though.  I really liked this collection and I can't wait to tell you all about it.
