sketches (necklaces) / skice (ogrlice)

I've been working on making and designing necklaces...As you know (if you have been following regularly), I have been experimenting over sized necklaces made from faux leather. I've been trying to work out  how I want to make them and all that. Here are a few sketches and ideas and hopefully soon you'll be able to see a final product.  Perhaps making my designs really bubble and positive, sort of cartoonish 'sugar, spice and everything nice' type of stuff  is the result of  currently having a hard time in life and consequently trying to cheer myself up subconsciously.

Radila sam na pravljenu i osmišljavanju ogrlica. Kao što znate ako redovito pratite, malo sam eksperimentirala sa  velikim ogrlicama od eko kože. Pokušavala sam smisliti kako ih želim praviti i tako to. Evo par skica i ideja i nadam se da ću uskoro moći pokazati vam neke radove. Možda su mi u glavi vesele stvari u stilu crtića jer mi u zadnje vrijeme u životu ne cvjetaju ruže. Možda je to podsvijesni način da sama sebe oraspoložim.

  1. I´m so glad you enjoy this dear, looks like you have fun besides you´re pretty good at it...

  2. Your a total professional Ivana! I'll look forward to the faux Leather accessories, xoxo.

  3. Lovely designs, Ivana! I love the pink one with hearts and the last drawing with a portrait of a girl with purple hair is beautiful. I know so well how you feel... It's the same for me, the worst I feel the happiest are my drawings. But it's good that we can create to brighten our days! Hugs and smiles!

    1. yes, it is true:) there is a lot of comfort to be found in creativity!

  7. Draga Ivana, nadam se da nije nista preozbiljno i preruzno te da ce uskoro ruze cvjetati posvuda u tvom zivotu a ne samo na ogrlicama... od srca :) Slicice su lijepe i vesele te se veselim buducim realizacijama istih :*

    1. hvala ti nije ništa preozbiljno, samo sam premorena, nekad se previše toga skupi...

  8. I ja se nadam da će sve biti ok, sve ima rešenje i sve prođe i znam da je lako reći a u praksi je drugačije, ali ipak, nadam se da mogu makar malo da dorpinesem toj pozitivnosti kojom odišu ovi crteži. Stvarno si prava umetnica :)

  9. Ciao Ivana, non vedo l'ora di vedere I tuoi gioielli! Mi dispiace che tu sia giù di morale tesoro :-( ti abbraccio forte e ti penso

    I particularly like the boldness of the triangular shaped one.

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…


Early Spring. The air itself smells of flowers in blossom. The sun is shining but it's not too warm. I love this time of year. I love to see the nature come alive and admire the almond trees in blossom. Early spring is possibly the best time to visit Mostar city. What can I say about Mostar that I haven't said already? It truly is a beautiful city, especially this time of year when it is so green. The most wonderful thing about Mostar is perhaps the river it is known for- river Neretva. Wonder the banks of Neretva river and you'll feel you'll entered a magical world. It is amazing to find such stunning natural beauty within a city. However, this city can boost of other rivers as well such as Radobolja. No wonder that it is known as the city of bridges. 
The outfit proposal I'm sharing today is fairly simple. I've taken to wearing hats lately, mostly because the sun here is so strong. Spring sun can be misleading. You may not feel the sun rays  as intensely bec…


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…
