Once a book worm, always a book worm


painted and written on with textile paint

I'm no stranger to textile paints and I always enjoy using them. Painting on clothes is a lot of fun and a great way to refresh your wardrobe. Anyhow, today I present you with the result of my recent creative activities. Old bag made new ( I just love recycling stuff). I'm also taking an opportunity to appeal on behalf the flood victims in BIH, Croatia and Serbia. You can make a donation to the red cross  herehere and here.

Često se koristim tekstilnim bojama i baš uživam u tome. Uvijek je zabavno oslikavati odjeću, a uz to je to odličan način za osvježiti garderobu.  Početkom mjeseca sam oslikala par starih cekera koje sam pronašla...stare torbe postale su nove (uvijek me veseli iskoristi nešto nanovo).

Samo da još kažem kako je zaista divno vidjeti koliko su ljudi spremni pomoći žrtvama poplave...grozno je to što se dogodilo, ali je barem utješno vidjeti humanost na djelu. Dok imamo srca jedni za druge, ima nade!


  1. I definitely agree with you, painting on clothes is so much fun! I love doing this too, but I don't have so many ideas as you have, unfortunatelly. Sometimes I'd love to create somethign interesting, but I have no inspiration, my muse is lazy, seems to me:)
    That bag turned out really cool and original! Hope you will enjoy using it for a long time)

    1. To me inspiration always come when I don't expect it, when I'm tired and stresses...and when I do have time I don't always have the right ideas...Life is funny:)

    2. super, nice bag :)

  2. Great post dear...lovely pics..:-)

  4. I have have to have 3 extra bags just in case I mess up the whole thing, LOL! It takes talent and precision and I just don't have both!

  5. Ma che idea carina!!!
    Sei davvero creativa, tesoro! :D

  6. I love your blog,dear!

  7. Is this a bag! I love it, can I have it? So fun :-)

  8. Honestly I painted only my sneakers in the past and I can't remember that I ever had painted any garment! But the result of your painting is stunning and I like it - I like also the quote, now I know why I am a bookworm :)

How to style a gold metallic dress for transitional weather? Today I have an outfit proposal that answers that question. I styled my metallic wrap dress with brown boots, a white and brown bag and a tartan blazer. The blazer has some gold treads so I thought it would be a good match for the dress. Besides, I like the idea of pairing a metallic dress with tartan. It looks more interesting that way. I was never one to shy away from patterns. This outfit can be worn both as everyday and night wear. The golden touches make this outfit look more dressed up, and heelless boots make it appropriate for day wear. If you want to glam an outfit like this one, all you need is a pair of high heels. 
Metallic dress looks more tricky than it really is. Styling a metallic dress, for example, isn't that hard. As always look for colours and tones that suit your skin tone. Pair your metallic item with other items you like to wear or go for a full metallic look.  If you don't feel comfortable en…


Is anything as lovely as a sunny spring day? I missed reading outdoors, I can tell you that. Sitting on a bench on a nice spring day, with a nice book in one's lap, now that has to be one of the greatest pleasures in life. Speaking of reading, March has been a good reading month so far. As loyal I am to my favourite writers, I also love to discover new ones. I try to read at least one new author every month. This March I read two American authors for the first time: Kurt Vonnegut and John Green. Naturally I heard about them before. Both of them are quite well know, but this March marked my first introduction to these two. They are not the only 'new' writers I tried this month, but more about that some other time. Earlier this month, I read Kurt's Player Piano and Green's Fault in Our Stars. I liked Player Piano much more that Fault in Our Stars but I was kind of expecting that. I'm happy I read both, though. It is just that Kurt's writing is more my cup of…


One of more puzzling trends for Spring must be: the bath robe trend. It exists in many shapes and forms. Just like regular bath robes, these coats are made of different materials and come in different styles. Bath robe coats can give different vibes, from luxurious to relaxed ones. These bath robe coats sometimes come in silk and satin, while at other times they are made of wool or cotton. There was some confusion when the bath robe coat first appeared on the runaway. It was actually a few years ago, this is not the first season that it was introduced. However, this season we're seeing it around quite a bit, with a lot of celebrities choosing to wear this trend.

What to make of this trend? Will the bath robe trend become the new trench coat? It is hard to say. Nevertheless, it is easy to see the appeal of the bath robe trend. Coats cuts in this style are typically very cozy and comfy. If they are made from warmer materials, they make for perfect transitional pieces.  If you'r…
