One special scarf (outfit post) / Jedan poseban šal (odjevna objava)

First of all thank you all so much for leaving such wonderful, insightful, intelligent and well written comments on my last post regarding ethics and clothes. I immensely enjoyed reading them and they made me think about the issues and challenges of manufacturing clothes even more that I usually do (and I've been thinking about this issue for some time now).  Yesterday on the anniversary of Bangladesh tragedy, an excellent French documentary film on this subject called Toxic Clothing was aired on Croatian National Television. Have you watched it?

Prvo hvala svima na takvim divnim, dubokim, inteligetnim i dobro napisanim komentarima na mojoj zadnjoj objavi o odjeći i etici. Bilo ih je zadovoljstvo pročitati i naveli su me da još  nego inače više razmišljam o izazovima i problemima proizvodnje odjeće (a o tim problemima razmišljam već neko vrijeme). Jučer na godišnjicu tragedije u Bangladešu na HRT3 je emitiran odličan dukumentarac na ovu temu Otrovna moda. Jeste li ga gledali?

scarf: handknitted by my granny, coat: vitage; jeans: borrowed from husband, bag: no name.

  5. You look wonderful in that coat, Ivana. This thing is really so special! All your outfits are always so original and gratifying to the eye!
    I've heard about Bangladesh tragedy, of course. I would be really interested to see that documentary film on this subject. Sometimes I do scared of the world we live in, money makes people crazy and human's life means nothing anymore. That's really awful.

    1. Saying that you should work as a freelancer I mean you could try to work for any publishers, to write some reviews or some interesting articles on important subjects. I don't have any exact offers, but I believe you are able to do that. You seem to be a really good columnist who can deliver the goods, that both provides news, humor and opinion:)
      Anyway, I understand, such job is hard to find, though.

    2. yes, it is really hard to get payed for writing. These days everyone expects you do it for free until you get famous (and that may never happen). Thanks for your suggestion, though. I do try to get such jobs (among others). I'm always sending my CV and job applications everywhere...somebody will answer some day.

  6. Divna lokacija, a outfit poseban, kao i uvijek!
    Zanimljivo mi je kako si jeans posudila od muza :-) Ja imam jedne traperice koje je moj muz "prerastao", legendarni GAS jeans, izrezala sam ih u boyfriend shorts i obozavam ih :-)

  10. Hi Ivana, That sure is a unique scarf. I was reading your last post. Sadly, I do not know much about ethical dressing. I read about ethical fashion but hadn't really given much thought in my daily life. I did try to practise ethical beauty for a while and it is really difficult to 100% avoid unethical beauty as even daily things I use like shampoo etc are not. I do try to buy ethical products whenever possible though like I mention, it is difficult to practise it 100%. It involves a huge change in lifestyle.

    1. I don't think it is even possible to do it 100 percent...I think that trying to do our best is good enough...better to put our energy into our work and be useful and socially involved, then be so obsessed with a certain issue (environment or whatever that may be) that we become paralyzed and unable to act in our everyday life because all we do is rotated around that one thing (and some people do push it too far that way).

  15. I like that your scarf was had knitted by your granny - you must have got your DIY skills from her! :)

    I haven't seen the documentary, but I have heard about many of the factory disasters. I think it's interesting that now in Australia we have a yearly report that rates all of our fashion brands on how ethical they are - it goes into a lot of detail about even where they get the cotton for their clothes and how they treat the cotton works, and grades them all. I'm pleased to see some of my favourite brands aren't on the worst rating, but there is definitely a lot more they could be doing. B+ isn't good enough, A+ would be much better!

    1. I think that is the case...she is a very talented lady who knows her away around everything, from knitting to construction....I watched her mix concrete with her bare arms and build stone stairs- all this in her eighties!

  16. That scarf is gorgeous as is your location. I heard an article on the radio today about slow fashion which I found fascinating. A totally new concept to me! You look so lovely dear :) xoxo

  17. I guess crafty DIY skills run in the family. The scarf is so beautiful...your granny did an excellent job :)

    When I was a little child, my mum used to knit a lot too. I still have one jumper she must have knitted when I was 8 or 9. Back then it was huge and I never wore it because the wool was so itchy, but now, almost 20 years later, it fits perfectly and it's my favourite piece to wear in winter...it's like wearing a memory!

  21. oh yes, I've heard about the chemicals that can poison waters and apparently some plastic shoes (i.e non leather or natural materials could take 250 years to break down so they're pretty terrible for the environment which has made me think twice about a pair of shoes I buy now.x

    1. I know, it is so hard to decide what to do. I personally buy leather shoes most of the time...but I understand why some might not want to do it...vegans for example.

  22. Handmade clothing is the best - how lovely to be wrapped in something your granny made. When I was a child I only wanted store-bought clothes because most of our clothes were hand-made. Now I'm the reverse. I like that you're wearing your husband's jeans too.

  24. Pohvale baki za šal! :) Nisam gledala na vijestima ali ćitala sam na jednom blogu baš juće kako je sva ta proizvodnja u siromašnim državama slaba, da ljudi nemaju nikakva prava- sve to se već zna (ja se nadam) ali malo se preduzima u vezi s tim. Videla sam neke slike protesta, možda je to samo početak dobrog završetka :) xx Maja

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.

INSPIRED BY.....NATALIA LIALINA

Hello everyone and happy hump day!How are you doing? I hope you had a lovely week so far. It's been a while since my last Inspired by post, hasn't it? Well, today I'm back with another Inspired by... feature.  As some of you know, this is a regular feature on my blog that is all about illustrating bloggers I love and that inspire me. I always say it's one of my favourite features and it truly is. Over the years I had the chance to illustrate many many bloggers and it's always something I enjoy doing.
Moreover, I enjoy blog recommendations posts and I'm sure I'm not the only one. I discovered some wonderful bloggers through other bloggers and that's always lovely. This regular feature of mine is  not just about illustrating, it is also a kind of a blog recommendation post, because it gives me a chance to share bloggers I love with you. This time I have illustrated Natalia from @inthewriterscloset.  You can check out her blog here

A GRACE KARIN DRESS: VALENTINE'S DAY OUTFIT PROPOSAL

What to wear for Valentine's day? I'm sure many ladies (and gentlemen) are asking themselves that question. I can't offer much personal experience on dressing up for Valentine's day when it comes to gentlemen, but I can tell you what I've learned as a lady. I can sum it up in two main points: find something that will make you feel special but make sure you're comfortable at the same time. After all, you want to feel special on this lovely day, don't you? Now, you can define special anyway you want to. Moreover, you must also consider one important fact and that is how you are going to celebrate Valentine's day. If you are celebrating it by going on a hike with your significant other, obviously you'll ditch the heels and wear hiking boots. However, that doesn't mean you can't wear a pretty dress! My advice is to take a moment and plan your Valentine's day outfit, that way it will surely feel special. There are other things to consider as…

WINTER DESTINATIONS HERZEGOVINA: MOUNTAIN PRENJ, RUJISTE

A HERZEGOVIAN WINTER FAIRY TALE

What are some of best winter destinations in Herzegovina? That is the questions that I plan to answer with a series of posts. To start with, I'm bringing you a bit of winter magic and taking you with me to mountain Rujiste (proper spelling Rujište, pronunciation  Ruyshte) located on mountain Prenj. This mountain is only a short drive away from Mostar city, which makes it ideal for a little winter getaway. 
I've always loved mountains, so when we went for a little drive and ended  up here, I was ecstatic. Winter fairy tale coming my way, that's something I didn't mind at all. I'm a big fan of hiking (as some of you may know). Not that I did a lot of hiking here (I'll explain why later). Anyhow, this is a great place for visiting, whether or not you plan to hike. Just chilling or photograph taking is fine too. For me personally, there is just something about the combination of high altitude and fresh air that makes my heart sing. …
