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.

  4. Sviđa mi se kako su se detalji na suknji uklopili uz košuljicu :) Super si mi na ovim slikama s Bruceom :D

  5. Awesome shirt, I love the bulky sleeves, I would look ridiculous in them, but you are looking so sophisticated, how the heck do you do that?
    Didn't knew Bruce waspopularizing self defense for women, gotta thank that guy! Although I must admit, pepper spray is much easier in the defense department :D

  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 :)
    kisses Judy

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.

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…
