outfit post/ odjevna kombinacija (once a bookworm, always a book worm)

This outfit post is really special to me because it encorporates several items that I have made myself. The first one is a necklace that I have made recently using fabric, faux leather and feathers (all recycled materials i.e things I already had at home). The second item would be the bag that bears inscription 'Once a book worm, always a book worm.' The bag is recycled. I have painted the little books and written the proverb on it with textile paints (I'd written about it in detail often enough) Finally, there is a skirt to which I have attacked lace ( by sewing it) All in all, a very enviromentally friendly outfit. 

It might be said that this outfit is about two things: DIY and flowers. There are flowers both on the skirt and the blouse and that is not the only reason why I have matched them together. I don't usually wear skirts that are as short as this one so matching it with an oversized blouse only made sense. In this way I didn't feel like there was too much skin showing. The other things I need to mention are these white sandals made from wood and leather...they'r so divenly comfortable and my husband proved once more that he is the greatest expert when it comes to buying shoes. When he says something along the lines 'buy this pair, they are of good quality', one should most definitely listen to him. Tell me what do you think about this look? Do you enjoy DIY projects? Do you like to recycle things? Are you a book worm like myself?

* Ova mi odjevna kombinacija stvarno nešto predstavlja jer sam većinu stvari sama izradila, bilo u potpunosti, bilo djelomično. Ogrlicu sam napravila prije par dana koristeći tkaninu, eko kožu i perje (sve materijali koje sam imala kod kuće). Torbicu sam sama obojila i ispisala tekstilnim bojama i tako iskoristila/ prenamijenila ovaj stari ceker. Na suknju sam nadodala čipku ( većina nas ima kući takvih komada čipke, a jako je jednostavno ih samo prišiti na nešto)..sve u svemu jako ekološki, puno recikliranja ...sve se vrti oko tog uradi sam elementa i cvijeća... Cvijeće se nalazi i na bluzi i na suknji, a spojila sam iz zajedno i zato jer inače ne nosim tako kratke suknje, pa ova velika prozračna bluza osigurava da ne bude previše kože otkriveno. Moram spomenuti još i sandale, od kože i drveta...koje su strašno udobne i dokazuju da nitko ne zna odabrati cipele kao moj muž. Kad on kaže da je neki par cipela kvalitetan, onda je sigurno tako. Onda, kako vam se sviđa moju ruho? Uživate li i sami u uradi sam projektima? Volite li reciklirati stvari? Jeste li kao i ja knjiški crv?

  1. Ma quanto sei creativa??? Praticamente te lo sei fatta da sola questo look!
    Sei stata bravissima, e sei anche supercarina! :D

  2. Great post dear...lovely pics..:-)...Thx for sharing..:-) xx

  3. Great outfit!

  4. Meni se čini da bi ti i ni od čega napravila nešto :) Sve mi se mnogo sviđa, volela bih da sam makar malo kreativna po tom pitanju, mada se u suštini nikada i nisam okušala u tim stvarima. Što se knjiga tiče, ista priča ;)

    1. to mi i muž kaže...da ga ne fascinira toliko to što napravim već to što to napravim iz ničega:) i kako mi to padne na pamet.

      hvala ti!

  5. Lepo si skombinovala celi outfit: belo-belo i crveno-crveno. Ni za ogrlicu ni za suknju ne bih mogla pogoditi da su DIY, izgledaju kao da pripadaju trgovinama ;) Možda ćeš jednom da kreiraš odjela za koju firmu, nikad se ne zna :) xx Maja

  6. Super izgledaš, odlična mi je suknja i baš mi se lijepo uklopila u ovu kombinaciju :))

  7. Odlična! Ogrlica mi je jedan od najdražih do sada a suknja... stoji ti predivno! Češće si "priušti" ovakvu dužinu! Sviđa mi se spi+oj cvijeća i čipke! :) Jako lijepa i naklon na tolikoj kreativnosti... ja baš nsam od takvih, barem što se DIY tiče jer sam strahovito nespretna! :)

  8. Bello! :)

  17. Dear Ivana, you should wear more often short skirts as you look wonderful in them! How good to have a husband which is a shoe expert, I like your shoes, too. And yes, I'm a book worm! Before I started blogging I read at least 3 - 4 books a week, in my first blogger year, which was 2013, I think I read less books as never before in my life. But since the beginning of 2014 I read again at least one book a week. I'm not as skilled as you and I don't do often DIY and I'm also not such a good woman like who recycles a lot which always impresses me so much <3

    1. I also read about one book per week now and it used to be a lot more...However, I think that now in summer I will have more time to read so the number might increase. Have you ever thought that blogging is a bit like reading? Maybe that is why we don't read as much as we used to...In fact we're both reading a lot...but now both books and blogs (not just books anymore)

  18. Jako interesantan i na prvi pogled "nespojiv" outfit, ali si sve tako super iskombinirala da mi se bas jako dopada! :)

  19. Lovely details. Your skirt is beauiful :)

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

With summer being in full spring, I caught myself thinking about iconic summer outfits. Do you know what came to my mind? Costumes/outfits worn by Monica Belluci when she played Malena Scordia in an iconic Italian movie set on Sicily.  The costumes for that movie were designed by an acclaimed Italian costume designer Maurizio Millenotti and he outdone himself! Seeing that Malena is a historical movie, Maurizio choose quite timeless outfits and cuts that will ever go out of style. That fact makes Malena movie the perfect place to look for inspiration! Moreover, I feel that Monica Belluci's personal style is quite similar to Malena's (i.e. to the style of the character she is playing). There is definitely a Mediterranean lady feel about Malena/Monica Bellucci. What says summer better than Mediterranean and Sicily? Today we'll analyze Malena's style and see what we can learn from her. There is much to learn! Having analyzed looks that Monica wore in iconic Malena film, I…


Hello there, lovely people! I hope you're staying in and staying safe.  In my last post, I blogged about different fashion related things you can do while in corona virus self-isolation or lock-down. One of the things I pointed out is taking this opportunity to become more sustainable in your fashion  choices. I suggested shopping your closet, trying out new looks with the clothes you already own and creating a visual diary (or a folder) with clothing items and outfits you like. If something works for you, why not capitalize on it, especially when it is also beneficial for the environment?

 HOW MANY TIMES YOU SHOULD WEAR AN ITEM TO MAKE IT SUSTAINABLE? Today I'll show you what I like to do to make my fashion choices more sustainable- and that is getting the maximum wear out of an item. So, for a while now I've been creating these 'X ways to wear an X items' posts. These kind of posts take a lot of time to make, because I have to browse my old blog posts and hunt fo…

COLOURFUL STYLING FOR A VISIT TO ČAPLJINA CITY Orange, green, blue, black / Narančasta, zelena, plava i crna

Orange is the colour of warmth, some say. In the colour palette, it is placed between red and yellow, two colours that are very dear to me. So, the fact that I'm fond of this colour is not surprising at all. As you can imagine, I was very happy when I found this lovely midi dress. I've been looking for a long sleeved midi dress for a while, so it's great that I finally found one- and in perfect colour.   The fact that it is from a local brand Bellissima makes it even better. I'm mentioning this brand because people often avoid local stores thinking they are expensive, but in reality they are often cheaper than high-street brands. Yes, you read that right. You don't have to buy all your clothes in Zara, H&M and other high-street brands. Not that I'm against high-street brands. I'm not.  I mean buy clothes in Zara if that is what you really want, but don't be afraid to explore different options. Never buy something just because someone else is doing …
