Nature park Hutovo blato (part 1) / Park prirode Hutovo blato (prvi dio)
In my last two posts, I talked about some current issues with the textile/fashion industry. In one of my posts, I mentioned how many feel that a good way to support ethical fashion is to make your own stuff (clothes/jewelry etc). Why, I rather like that idea! So, I present to you this DIY necklace. I made it almost ten years ago but it still looks brand new. The majority of material I used is recycled stuff (such as the plastic flower for example) and I think this is a good example how something doesn't have the be expensive to look good (the other materials I used include fimo, wood beads and wire).
U svoje zadnje dvije objave, pričala sam o nekim trenutačnim problemima u tekstilnoj i modnoj industriji. U jednoj od objava, spomenula sam kako puno ljudi smatra da je dobar način za poduprijeti etičnu modu pravljenje vlastitih odjevnih komada, nakita i sl. Naravno da se meni ta ideja sviđa. Predstavljam vam ovu ogrlicu koju sam sama napravila prije deset godina, a još uvijek izgleda kao nova. Većina materijala koju sam koristila je reciklirana (kao naprimijer plastični cvijet) i mislim da je to dobar primjer kako nešto ne mora biti skupo da bi izgledalo dobro ( drugi materijali koje sam koristila uključuju fimo, drvene perlice i žicu)
There is another DIY in this look and that would be these lovely heels that I hand painted myself. My shoes often have a short life span because I'm a terrible driver which basically means I have to walk everywhere but I've found ways to recycle my shoes (one of them is fixing them with paint). As far as that important 'Who made my clothes?' question goes, I'm not able to answer that (with certainty) when it comes to the skirt and the heels but I can vouch that the tee I'm wearing is an ethical product. The t-shirt I'm wearing is from Galeb, they are a leading Croatian underwear brand but they also make tees, shirts and dresses. I often buy their products because the stitching is really good and that's one thing I'm really particular about. They are a fair trade brand and if you want to know more about what that means read this (basically a list of safety and eco certificates Galeb posses).
Postoji još nešto što sam sama doradila (kad već nisam mogla napraviti u cijelosti), a to bi bile ove divne cipelice na petu koje sam sama oslikala. Moje cipele obično ne traju dugo jer sam grozan vozač pa svugdje idem pješice, ali pronašla sam načine kako da ih recikliram ( npr. tako da ih sama oslikam). Što se tiče pitanja "Tko je izradio moju odjeću?" koje je ovih dana aktulano, ne mogu odgovoriti s sigurnošću što se tiče cipela i suknje, ali majica iz Galeba je zasigurno etični proizvod jer oni ne samo da šivaju proizvode u Hrvatskoj, već ovdje i proizvode materijale, a brojni certifikati koji imaju dokazuju njihovu ekološku ispravnost. Ja često kupujem Galebove proizvode jer su im šavovi kvalitetni ( po tom pitanju sam malo izbirljiva, stvarno me živcira loše zašivena odjeća).
Finally, let's talk about location. This nature park in Bosnia and Herzegovina has been featured on this blog a number of times and hopefully this will not be my last visit. If you remember, I even got you all to sign a petition for it once! Anyhow, this beautiful nature park is an important place and I would just like to stress that it is quite known for its bird life (any bird lovers among you?). If you have more questions about this park, I'm always happy to answer. Look how happy I am on these photographs! That's the best proof that this lovely nature park is the place to visit for sure. I decided to end the post on a bit of a feminist note, you will figure out for sure what the last photographs is inspired by/ alluding to.
Konačno, pričajmo malo o mjestu snimanja. Ovaj park prirode u BIH je već puno puta bio na ovog blogu i nadam se da mi ovo nije zadnji posjet. Ako se dobro sjećate, čak sam vas navela da jednom za njega i potpišete peticiju! Uglavnom, ovaj park prirode je veoma važno mjesto. Dosta je poznat po pticama koje tu obitavaju. Imate li kakvih pitanja, spremna sam da na njih odgovorim. Pogledajte samo kako sam sretna na ovim fotografijama! To je najbolji dokaz da je to stvarno mjesto koje vrijedi vidjeti. Odlučila sam završiti ovu objavu pomalo feministički, shvatit ćete na što zadnja fotografija aludira i čime je nadahnuta.
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…
