Two ways to style a red vintage shirt/ Dva načina za nositi crvenu vintage shirt

I didn't plan to post these photographs because they were taken with a smartphone, but then I remembered someone asked to see the bag I hand painted with fabric paints featured in an outfit.  Your wish is my command. Both of these outfits I have worn on the same day and they both feature a vintage red shirts, so hence the title. One way to wear vintage shirt would be with mom jeans and pointy boots and the second one would be with a semi plaid skirt and shoes that I decorated with nail polish last year. I do love this vintage shirt, it's so versatile! The photographs were taken in Mostar.

Nisam planirala objaviti ove fotografije jer su slikane s mobitelom, ali onda sam je sjetila da je netko od vas tražio da vidi torbicu koju sam sama oslikala tekstilnim bojama u odjevnoj kombinaciji. Vaša želja, moja zapovijed. Obje ove kombinacije sam nosila istog dana, a ponavlja se ista košulja, zato sam i dala takav naslov. Dakle, jedan način za nošenje vintage košulje bi bilo s trapericama ravnog kroja i visokog struka te špicokama, a drugi bi bio s djelomičko plisiranom suknom i cipelama koje sam sama ukrasila lakom prošle godine. Jako volim ovu košulju, ide uz sve! Fotografije su slikane u Mostaru.

I consider Bruce Lee to be  a really important person, not as an action star, but as a man who pioneered self defense for woman.  He is not the first guy you think of when you think of woman empowerment, but he changed the way we think of marshal arts and he taught us there are ways to defend ourselves no matter  our size.  I didn't believe this was a real site statue until I was photographs of dancers from  Contemporary Dragon KungFu Company next to it in the papers. Last month I  had the chance of seeing this dance group founded by Jackie Chan perform live here in Mostar. If you ever get the chance to see them, take it. These guys were amazing!

Smatram Bruce Lee-a jako važnom osobom, ne jer je bio akcijska zvijeda već jer je približio samobranu svima, a posebno ženama time što nas je naučio da veličina nije važna i da postoje načini da se obranimo. Nije prva osoba koja pada na pamet kada mislimo o osnaživanju žena, ali imao je svoju ulogu zasigurno. Nisam vjerovala da je kip u prirodnoj veličini dok se plesači iz Contemporary Dragon KungFu Company nisu slikali pored njega. Prošli mjesec sam gledala nastup ove plesne grupe koju je osnovao Jackie Chan ovdje u Mostaru i baš su fantastični, ako imate priliku svakako ih pogledajte.

  10. Hi Ivana, I was spending the past few moments catching p on all the post I've missed on your blog since I've not been on blogosphere for a long time. Wow, there's so much to catch up on. Firstly, I love the peek a boo colours coming from your pleated skirt. I didn't know about your admiration for Bruce Lee but now I know. You have got such a lot of DIY outfits. So electic. I also enjoyed all your OOTD and the natural and beautiful scenery around you. I spent the longest time reading your post about your paintings and all the underlying issues that you were trying to bring out. You are indeed a very special lady and I'm so glad to have make acquaintance with you!

    Do check back on my replies to you. I didn't paste them here as they are too long.

    Have a fabulous weekend!

    1. thank you so much for your comment and for checking out my old posts as well.

  11. Hi, Ivana! Hope you are doing fine:) I must say I fall in love with your skirt immediately, it's super original and chic. I have been already said that you look really great in red, so I just want to repeat:) You should wear red items more often, you are so beautiful in such attires.
    The pictures turned out really lovely and lively, in spite of the fact they were taken with a smartphone:)
    Sending you virtual hugs! Take care:)

  12. Lovely red shirt!

  13. Bruce Lee!!! Yes, he is to be admired and respected. Everything I know of him has impressed me. I would like to have that statue :) Both looks are lovely but of course I prefer the one that involves tights. No surprise there I guess ;) You look lovely dear!!

  14. This shirt is such a lovely piece and you styled it perfectly! It looks as great with jeans as with that beautiful skirt. Love that portrait of you, so cute expression :) Mmm, I have same nail polish but I don't use it for my nails. Perhaps I should use your idea as inspiration and try this polish for something else!

  15. Nice outfit !!
    Wonderful nail polish :)

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 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…


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.

 I find that while androgynous style has its benefits, generally…


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…
