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

HOW TO STYLE A YELLOW BLAZER WITH DAD SNEAKERS FOR SPRING?

My outfit proposal of the day is a casual one. I feel that not too long ago a blazer worn with jeans wouldn't have been exactly my first choice, especially paired with dad's sneakers, but times are changing. One of fun things about trends is that they can make you step outside of your comfort zone a little bit. Obviously, we shouldn't follow trends just for the sake of following them, but often they can give us inspiration. I certainly like to look at them that way, as a source of inspiration. Fashion moves in circles, so playing up with trends doesn't really have to cost anything, especially if you have already mastered shopping your own closet. The athletic sneaker trend is certainly a tempting one. It's hard to say not to the comfy sneakers trend, especially when you enjoy hiking and strolling around as much as I do. Most people do have an ugly sneaker in their closet. It is possibly the most comfortable option out there, so why not try styling it for every day…

HOW TO WEAR DRESSES WITH SNEAKERS FOR SPRING & SUMMER?

If there is one outfit that screams spring and summer for me, it's dresses worn with sneakers. Naturally, dresses and sandals is another lovely pairing, but sneakers also have many benefits. From being orthopedic (not all of them but still) to being appropriate for all kind of terrains, there is no denying that sneakers are practical. You can take them anywhere, from a rock beach to a sandy one. You can pair them fun socks or tights for those days it's still not warm enough. Long story short, they do make for a lovely choice in this season. What are your thoughts? Do you like to wear sneakers in spring and summer? My last post was about styling dad sneakers with jeans and a blazer, and today I'll show you some of my favourite sneaker and dress combinations. If you ask me, the answer to the question can I wear dresses with sneakers is - yes, you absolutely can.

HOW TO WEAR A DENIM SKIRT (WITH A BLAZER) FOR SPRING?

I often write about shopping one's closet on this little blog of mine. Not only is shopping our closet  a sustainable thing to do, it also helps us to get to know our closet. How can you really know your wardrobe options if you don't style and wear your clothes? The potential of every clothing item increases with a bit of tender love and care (TLC). One of the things I love about shopping one's closet is the opportunity to create stories with our clothing items. When we care about a clothing item, we're more likely to take good care of it and that can help make us more environmentally conscious. Most people could really benefit from learning how to take better care of their clothes, that's for sure. We live in an era of 'wear it then throw it'. This consumerist approach is what makes fashion industry such a horrible polluter. We can all help to change that with our every day choices. Good news is that we can all help it in a variety of ways. From buying vi…
