DIY of the day / Današnji Napravi sam projekt





Today's DIY project is a brooch made of faux leather. I have sewn every single plastic bead by hand. The back side looks quite messy but it won't be visible anyway so who cares, right? At least I'm pretty sure that the beads won't fall out. I'm not against gluing as such  but I do love old school ways. That would be all. No long essays today....;) 

Današnji napravi sam projekt je broš od eko kože. Svaku sam plastičnu perlicu ušila posebno. Zadnja strana izgleda dosta neuredno, ali neće biti vidljiva pa koga briga? Barem sam sigurna da perlice neće ispasti. Nisam protiv ljepila, ali volim neke stvari raditi na starinski način.  To bi bilo sve. Danas nema dugih eseja....;)

  4. I'm a great advocate of not worrying about what can't be seen - it makes me a very slapdash seamstress though! Great idea for a brooch.

    1. otkada sam se započela baviti zlatovezom, nekako mi je lakše naći strpljenje za druge stvari jer puno lakše u usporedbi s tim:)

  9. Dear Ivana, although I think I wrote it already many times, I'm again impressed how creative you are and I like the result of your actual DIY! I would have also preferred the sew the pearls - in general I think that sewing is the better solution :) Looking forward to the outfit post with the brooch!

  23. To hand sew all those beads sounds like a lot of work but with such a pretty result, I bet you don't mind. No one's going to look at the back side anyway ;p

  27. Pa ženo draga ti si prava riznica super ideja! :) Nekidan mi se rasula jedna draga narukvica i već sam se razmišljala što ću s tim silnim perlicama i kako ih iskoristiti, baš bih si mogla napraviti ovakav jedan cool ukras. Možda ih zalijepim i na karton pa napravim ogrlicu, sutra ću se pozabaviti s tim pa ti javim što sam uspjela :D

TWO WAYS TO STYLE A SCARF (SUSTAINABLE FASHION FILES)

Today I'll show you two ways to style a scarf: one is by wrapping it around your headband and the other by using it as a belt for your dress.  I'm also going to link up old posts with more ideas for styling this scarf, offering you about a dozen ideas. The first idea is a common one. Wearing a belt around your dress is an easy way to accentuate your waist. The other outfit proposal shows a fresh styling trick: wearing your scarf wrapped around your headband. Yes, you read that right. This is actually such an easy way to make the most out of your headband(s). I own only one headband but by wrapping different scarves around it, it seems like I have a dozen of them.  As for the two outfits I'm going to show to you, they are both summer ones. The colour palette for these looks is pretty neutral, but I jazzed it up by choosing printed white items. I do like the freshness that the white colour offers, but as a lover of prints I tend to compromise by opting for printed white ite…

FASHION ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY: ILLUSTRATED TOTE BAGS REDBUBBLE

I don't know what it is about the combination of tote bags and fashion illustrations that I like so much. Maybe it is simply a matter of combining two things that I love. I adore tote bags for their practicality, I like to carry one with me (often tucked in my regular bag) at all times because you never know. We all know that the typical disposable plastic grocery bags are a huge no-no for the environment, so a tote bag is a must (even if just for grocery shopping).  I personally like to wear tote bags even on occasions that have nothing to do with grocery lists, but to each his own. As for fashion illustration, well I don't have to explain that. I have literally loved fashion illustration for as long as I can remember. Joining my creative skills with tote bags seemed logical! Some of you might remember that I even hand painted some vintage tote bags. In fact, you had the chance of seeing one of those tote bags recently here. As much as I enjoy using textile prints, I also li…

SUMMER TO AUTUMN OUTFITS FEATURING A VINTAGE BLACK MAXI DRESS

Today I'll show you seven ways  to wear a black maxi dress. This beautiful vintage dress was gifted to me by a family member. I don't own many solid black maxi dresses (probably because I'm addicted to bold prints and colours). I do own quite a few little black dress (because a LBD is such a classical piece) but not that many black ones in maxi length. In fact, I believe this is the only plain black maxi dress I own. I find it really easy to style. I treat this maxi as a neutral piece and I wear it all year round. I actually added embroidery to it (it's a hobby of mine) but the embroidery detail isn't that big (for now) so I tend to style it as a plain black dress. By that I mean that I like to have fun with accessories when I wear this dress. I often wear it with statement necklaces I made myself or similar eye-catching accessories. Anyhow, I figured that with the summer to autumn transitioning that is going on right now, it would make sense to show you some tran…
