DIY necklace in 3 easy steps/ uradi sam ogrlica u tri lagana koraka

Happy Sunday! Today's post won't be very long as I'm going to show you one necklace that I've made recently and already gave it away. I took this pics in a hurry (they're not very interesting and arty I'm afraid). Anyway, I'll try to make it a habit to document my creations before they end up as gifts. 

If you want to try this DIY yourself, you will need: faux leather, some kind of decoration (I've bought these shiny plastic ones in store where they sell sewing equipment and I'm sure they're not hard to find wherever you may live) and a bit of satin cord. 

step no.1
-cut out as much faux leather as you will need
step no.2
-sew the decoration of  your choice (beads, stones, crystals- whatever)
step no.3 
-sew the satin cord making sure it is the right length for your neck....and it's really as easy as that!

* I think it's only fair that I warm you that you might experience pain or some kind of discomfort in your arms if you do this frequently. Sewing by hand is never easy and it's harder when it comes to leather (and even faux leather thought this one is obviously softer). That's why sometimes special tools are needed to work with leather (which I never managed to get my hands on but that's another subject.) So, don't say I didn't warn you;)

Ugodna nedjelja! Današnji post neće biti jako dug, samo ću vam pokazati jednu oglicu koju sam nedavno izradila i već je uspjela udomiti:) Na brzinu sam je uslikala (pa eto fotografije i nisu nešto zanimljive ni umjetnične) i odsada svakako ću nastojati dokumentirati svoje radove prije nego što završe kao pokloni. 

Ukoliko vi želite isprobati ovaj uradi sam projekt, trebati će vam : eko koža, neka vrsta dekoracije (ja sam kupila ove sjajne plastične u trgovini gdje se prodaje oprema za šivanje, ali gdje god živjeli sigurno ćete uspjeti pronaći nešto slično) i malo satenske trake.

prvi korak
- izrežite onoliko eko kože koliko će vam biti potrebno za ogrlicu
drugi korak
- ušijte dekoraciju po izboru (perlice, kamenčići, kristalići- što god)
treći korak
-  prišijte satensku traku pazeći da je duljina odgovarajuća za vas.


* Mislim da je pošteno da vam upozorim kako će vas ruke možda zaboljeti,, pogotovo ako ovo budete često radili jer kada se radi sa kožom (pa bila to i eko kože) bez posebne opreme to jest sa običnom iglom i koncem, a uz to se ušiva veliki broj ukrasa...Eto nemojte reći da vas nisam upozorila;)

14 WAYS TO STYLE ONE BLUE DENIM SKIRT: SUSTAINABLE FASHION FILES

Sustainable fashion is such a hot topic right now, I wouldn't be surprised if it turned into a fashion revolution. More and more people are trying to minimize their carbon print by re-wearing their clothes and shopping their closets. One good way to build a functioning wardrobe you'll love to shop is to make sure you have a couple of essential items in it. These basic pieces can help you shop your closet more easily and become more sustainable in your fashion choices. A denim skirt is one such classical and essential item.  Today I'll show you ten ways to style a denim skirt. I had this particular denim skirt for a couple of years, it's by Croatian denim brand Amadeus (not sponsored) that I can recommend for its quality denim. For me this skirt is one of those items that are season-less and by that I mean those clothing items that can be worn in any season. If you're creative enough, you can figure out a way to wear most of your clothes in any season, but some ite…

HOW I GOT INSPIRED BY D&G AUTUMN/WINTER 2019/2020 COLLECTION? (PART 1)

Yesterday I finally took the the time to watch (and listen) to the Dolce & Gabbana Autumn/Winter 2019/2020 collection. The runaway show was organized in retro style and lasted about half and hour. Instead of music, it featured a British narrator who commented on the designs in the old style (that is how fashion shows used to be presented, narrated instead of accompanied by the music). Anyhow, I found the both the narration and the narrator charming. The fact that the narrator pointed out all the materials used was quite helpful. The models seemed to move quite quickly, but there were 127 looks displayed so the show took a quite some time to finish. It took me twice as long to study the photographs as to see the show. The trend analysis took even more time. However, that time was not spent in vain for I was finally inspired to ponder my autumn and winter outfits. What do you know? D&G Autumn/Winter collection gave me plenty of inspiration for the colder season ahead. I don'…

The good news is that sustainable fashion does't have to be expensive or difficult.  You can help the environment just by shopping your closet more. As easy as that! Shopping your closet and taking good care of your clothing are wonderful and easy ways to be more sustainable. Do you know what is the best thing about these two ecologically friendly fashion strategies? They don't cost you anything. By maximizing the usage of items in your closet and learning how to properly care for your clothing items, you can both help the environment and your personal finances. I already addressed this topic in my last post, when I showed you fourteen ways to wear one basic item. Relying on our wardrobe essentials is such an effortless way to be more green in our fashion choices.
