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


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:) 


  1. A creative and interesting D.I.Y project. A great way to turn your old coffee beans into a fashion project.

  2. It's a very beautifull DIY.

  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:)

    Enjoy the weekend Ivana!

  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 :)

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…


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…


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…
