DIY of the day: fascinator / ukras za kosu

Step no. 1: glue the coffee beans to faux leather and decorate with nailpolish and/or acrylic paints/ prvi korak: zaljepiti zrna kave za eko kožu i ukrasiti lakom za nokte i/ili akrilnim bojama



For the next and the last step you will need  a bit of thread and a needle/ za zadnji i posljednji korak trebati će vam igla i konac

step no.2: sew the fascinator to the hairpin/ drugi korak: ušijte ukras za špangicu

eccola!

I won't get into why I usually have extra coffee beans around the house, ok? Indeed, to explain how I drink my coffee would take too much time. The point is that I usually do have some coffee beans (the ones that are not deemed good enough to end up in my coffee cup) and they inspired me to make a head fascinator....a little bit of glue, a piece of faux leather, one hairpin...and  voilà!

Neću ulaziti u to zašto obično imam viška zrna kave kući, previše bi si vremena oduzela da objašnjavam neke svoje navike, nego ću samo reći što mi je palo na pamet da napravim s onima koja mi se nisu dovoljno svidjela da bi završila u mojoj kavi. Napravila sam ukras za kosu! Malo ljepila, komad eko kože, jedna špangica za kosu...i eto ga ili kako moji otočani kažu: eccola:)

  3. It looks quite interesting, Ivana! You are very imaginative, I believe you've got a million ideas in your head. I have a lot of extra coffee beans in my house too, but I have never doing anything from them, except making a cup of fresh coffee:)

  16. Kako je ovo fenomenalno! :) Nikad nisam ni pomislila da bi zrna kafe mogla da imaju drugu funkciju. Nosila bih to bez razmišljanja mada uz rizik da zrna ne ostanu na mestu jer kafi ne mogu da odolim :)

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.

My fashion illustration of the day + book review / Moja modna ilustracija dana + ogled knjige ( Le Diable au corps) 6.12.2016

This morning I read an amazing novel. Le Diable au corps (translated as The Devil In the Flesh) is a novel by Raymond Radiquet. Believe it or not, this was by first book by this French writer. I don't think I even heard of him before, which is odd, but well, it happens. In his time, Raymond was quite a celebrity and he is still considered as one of the important French writers of that period. Did I like this novel? Quite frankly, I loved it. I just couldn't put this novel down. I must have read it an hour or so. I got up a bit more earlier this morning so I actually had time to read it with my morning coffee (it is not a very long novel but still it is amazing how easy it was to find one's self glued to those pages). Perhaps I should make it a habit, getting up more early so I can read more. 
Jutros sam pročitala divan roman. Đavo u tijelu  (naslov izvornika Le Diable au corps) je roman Raymonda Radiqueta. Vjerovali ili ne, ovo je moj prvi roman ovoga pisca. Mislim da nika…

Lado (drawing of the day/ crtež dana)

Hello everyone! Have I ever talked to you about my love for folklore? I've always been keen on exploring folklore dresses and costumes, mostly because I find them to be very inspirational. In my view, folklore is one of the best fashion inspiration out there. The diversity and the beauty of international folklore dresses and costumes is enough to leave anyone impressed. Here I illustrated one of Croatian national costumes ( we have a lot of them), worn by Croatian national folklore dance ensemble Lado. As a reference for this drawing, I used a photograph from Lado's official catalog. The medium is coloured pencils on papers.
Zdravo svima! Jesam li sa vama ikada pričala o svojoj ljubavi  prema folkloru? Uvijek sam voljela istraživati folklorne nošnje i kostime, većinom zato jer su mi toliko nadahnjujući. Po mome mišljenu, folklor je jedno od najboljih modnih nadahnuća koji postoji. Raznolikost i ljepota međunarodnih folklornih nošnji i kostima je dovoljna da svakoga ostavi zadi…

Diane Von Furstenberg Resort 2018 ( fashion illustration of the day/ modna ilustracija dana )

I know what you're thinking. It's Summer, how can you think about coats? Well, I can. The sweat is literally dripping down by forehead, but I'm going to share an illustration inspired by Diane Von Furstenberg's 2018 Resort collection. It is always good to look forward to something, right? I'm pretty sure that a lot of ladies are looking forward to this collection hitting the stores this November. What I personally find so irresistible about it are- the colours. I'm very keen on bold colours and patterns, so no wonder this collection caught my eye.
Znam što mislite. Ljeto je, kako možeš razmišljati o kaputima? Jednostavno mogu. Znoj mi kapa niz čelo, ali ipak ću podijelit modnu ilustraciju nadahnutu kolekcijom Diane Von Furstenberg za 2018. godinu. Sigurna sam da će se puno dama razveseliti kada ova kolekcija stigne u trgovine u studenom. Ono što je meni osobno tako neodoljivo kod ove kolekcije su- boje. Jako volim žarke boje i uzorke, tako da nije nimalo neobič…
