DIY of the day (how to make an eco friendly necklace?) / Napravi sam projekt dana (kako napraviti ekološku ogrlicu?)




Well, obviously the best way to make an eco friendly necklace is to use either organic or recycled materials. I made this necklace  using the latter, that is,  extra fabric from one red denim skirt, little bit of cardboard, a bit of fabric old pillowcase and red acrylic paint

The base of the necklace is made from red denim, I just tied them together. The necklace  has one big heart attached to it. The heart you see is made from cardboard and it is covered first with white fabric from an old pillow case (sewn over it, not glued to it). Finally, I decorated the heart with acrylic paints. 

That's it! About 15 minutes of work and you end up with a really unique necklace. Will you try it?

Očito je najbolji način za napraviti ekološki prihvatljivu ogrlicu koristiti ili organske ili reciklirane materijale. Napravila sam ovu ogrlicu koristeći posljednje tj. malo tkanine koja mi je ostala od jedne crvene suknje od jeansa, malo kartona, malo tkanine s stare jastučnice i crvenu akrilnu boju.

Baza ogrlice je napravljena od crvenog jeansa, jednostavno sam povezala trakice zajedno. Ogrlica ima jedno veliko srce koje možete vidjeti na slikama, a napravljeno je od kartona koje je prekriven prvo tkaninom s stare jastučnice (ušivenom ne zaljepljenom). Na kraju sam ukrasila srce crvenom akrilnom bojom. 

To bi bilo to. Petnaestak minuta posla i dobijete posve jedinstveno ogrlicu. Hoćete li pokušati?

  7. Dear Ivana, if I would have as impressing skils in DIY than you than I would try it for sure! Love the result - not only because your DIY necklace is red, which means in the favourite colour of both of us :) Hopefully you have now better weather ... here in Bavaria it is sunny but honestly more chilly than warm as in the mountains we have still (and again) snow. Happy weekend!

  8. This is a great way to use extra scraps of fabric. I'm going to have to look in my closet to see if I have anything to use to try to make one.

  11. It would be nice to see it on you, hopefully soon! This is a nice way to express one's creativity and to give a second life to those materials. I too like eco-friendly pieces, there are a few necklaces and earrings made of recycled paper in my collection as well as of bamboo.

  19. That's a great idea and I love how it looks! I tend to make raggedy flower brooches out of fabric scraps and have a bracelet I've been intending to make for some time now with a particular fabric scrap. xo

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…
