DIY statement necklaces/ uradi sam upečatljive ogrlice






You know how much I love statement necklaces. These ones I've made by sewing these lovely crystal imitations (that I have bought in a store where the sewing equipment is sold) onto faux leather.
I wanted to make something that would be of good quality i.e that wouldn't fall apart immediately after being purchased as some of the similar but glued necklaces some girls were ordering (and paying handsomely for) (being asked to fix one of those glued necklaces is what gave me the idea in the first place).

I think these are a good start and I hope I will approve my skills with time. (This working with faux leather is a bit new to me but really it isn't difficult. Sewing the crystals does take forever, though. I understand now why some choose to use the glue). The first necklace I gave to my sister-in-law, the second one to my mum and the third to my sister-in-law's sister. There are also two I didn't have time to take photographs of because I gave them away literally minutes after I have finished them, one  to my husband's sister and one to my friend.

So, what do you think? I did keep one for myself, you'll have a chance to see it soon.

Znate koliko volim upečatljive ogrlice. Ove sam napravila tako sam ušila ove lijepe imitacije kristala (koje sam kupila u dućanu gdje se prodaje oprema za šivanje) na eko kožu. Htjela sam napraviti nešto što će biti dobre kvalitete i što se neće raspasti kao neke slične ogrlice koje su neke djevojke naručivale (i dobro plaćale), ali na kojima su kristalići bili zaljepljeni (zapravo jer sam sudjelovala u popravljanju jedne takve tek kupljenje ogrlice dobila sam ideju da napravim nešto ovakvo).

 Mislim da ove nisu loš početak i nadam se da ću usavršiti vještine sa vremenom (nisam prije šivala s eko kožom, to mi je malo novo, ali stvarno nije teško...samo stvarno treba sto godina da se ušiju kristalići, shvaćam sada zašto se neki posluže ljepilom.)Prvu sam ogrlicu dala nevjesti, drugu mami, a treću nevjestinoj sestri. Još su bile dvije koje nisam imala vremena fotografirati zato što sam poklonila doslovno par minuta nakon što sam ih dovršila, jednu muževoj sestri a drugu kumi.

Onda što vam se čini? Jednu sam zadržala i za sebe, imati ćete priliku vidjeti je ubrzo.

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…

Lado (drawing of the day/ crtež dana)

Hello everyone! Have I ever talked to you about my love for folklore? I've always been keen on exploring folklore dresses and costumes, mostly because I find them to be very inspirational. In my view, folklore is one of the best fashion inspiration out there. The diversity and the beauty of international folklore dresses and costumes is enough to leave anyone impressed. Here I illustrated one of Croatian national costumes ( we have a lot of them), worn by Croatian national folklore dance ensemble Lado. As a reference for this drawing, I used a photograph from Lado's official catalog. The medium is coloured pencils on papers.
Zdravo svima! Jesam li sa vama ikada pričala o svojoj ljubavi  prema folkloru? Uvijek sam voljela istraživati folklorne nošnje i kostime, većinom zato jer su mi toliko nadahnjujući. Po mome mišljenu, folklor je jedno od najboljih modnih nadahnuća koji postoji. Raznolikost i ljepota međunarodnih folklornih nošnji i kostima je dovoljna da svakoga ostavi zadi…

Diane Von Furstenberg Resort 2018 ( fashion illustration of the day/ modna ilustracija dana )

I know what you're thinking. It's Summer, how can you think about coats? Well, I can. The sweat is literally dripping down by forehead, but I'm going to share an illustration inspired by Diane Von Furstenberg's 2018 Resort collection. It is always good to look forward to something, right? I'm pretty sure that a lot of ladies are looking forward to this collection hitting the stores this November. What I personally find so irresistible about it are- the colours. I'm very keen on bold colours and patterns, so no wonder this collection caught my eye.
Znam što mislite. Ljeto je, kako možeš razmišljati o kaputima? Jednostavno mogu. Znoj mi kapa niz čelo, ali ipak ću podijelit modnu ilustraciju nadahnutu kolekcijom Diane Von Furstenberg za 2018. godinu. Sigurna sam da će se puno dama razveseliti kada ova kolekcija stigne u trgovine u studenom. Ono što je meni osobno tako neodoljivo kod ove kolekcije su- boje. Jako volim žarke boje i uzorke, tako da nije nimalo neobič…
