Another necklace I made (outfit post)/ Još jedna oglica koju sam napravila (odjevna kombinacija)

This outfit feels so right for me. It's all vintage, with the exception of accessories. However, the accessories themselves are mostly DIY and that makes it even more me. I wanted a new pair of sunglasses but as I'm somewhat financially challenged at the moment, I just painted my old sunglasses with pink nail polish. The pink DIY hair pin you already saw in previous posts....and what kind of outfit post would be without another DIY necklace of mine? 

All these photographs were taken last Thursday in a little Herzegovian village Medugorje that is visited by millions of people annually. This time there were many Italian groups and they seemed to have been celebrating something....or maybe they were  just in a good mood. In my next post, I'm taking you once again in the most featured (on my blog) ethno village (still under construction). 

Ova odjevna kombinacioja kao da je stvorena za mene. Sva odjeća je vintage, a modni dodaci su većinom mojih ruku djelo. Željela sam nove sunčane naočale, ali pošto sam malo financijski ograničena, samo sam obojala stare u rozo s lakom za nokte. Rozu ukosnicu ste već vidjeli u prijašnjim odjevnim kombinacijama...a kakva bi to bila odjevna objava bez ogrlice koju sam sama napravila? 

Sve su fotografije uslikane prošlog četvrtka u uvijek jako posjećenom Međugorju. Ovog puta bilo je puno talijanskih grupa turista i čini se da su nešto slavili...ili su možda jednostavno bili dobre volje. U sljedećoj objavi, vodim vas još jednom u etno selo koje je na mom  blogu najzastupljenije, a koje još nije završeno.


clothes: all vintage, heels: Peko, necklace: DIY, scarf: avon











very happy Italians in the background (I'm not sure what was the occasion but they seemed very enthusiastic about something)

  5. OMG that is such a great idea to paint your old sunglasses with nail polish. How long does the finish last on them after you paint them?

    1. I'm not sure, this is the first time I have dine it...I will let you know! I think this method works well for plastic frames and if they were as cheap as mine,there is nothing to be lost.

    1. The long mesh (cardi, coat, sweater- I'm not sure what to call it myself) is vintage, I got it from a relative...I think I would grab it myself if I saw it in a shop but I was fortunate to get it for nothing!

      This is a small village, not a city...but it is often so crowded it feels like a city.

  15. I really like your idea to paint your old sunnies, because it's great and what's the most important - it doesn't require any money, because I'm sure that every girl has at least one nail polish ;) Moreover, this city looks beautiful, dear :)

  19. Žao mi je što se ogrlica ne vidi bolje, ali možda sam ju i propustila vidjeti zadnjih dana, malo ću još prošetati da vidim što je novoga kod tebe ;) Torba mi je predivna, baš po mom ukusu!

  25. Such a great idea to re-paint your sunglasses! The pink is very nice on you too! I'd imagine you could update them a few times by changing the colour, very clever!

    I really like the combination of the printed scarf and top in this outfit too - nice shades of blue :)

  28. You are so creative Ivana. I never would've thought to refresh my sunglasses by painting them with nail polish. I really like the pattern mixing with your scarf and top and the long jacket adds great visual interest as well.

  33. I can tell you love this outfit - and it shows. You look fantastic. DIY has the same effect on me too. And I really love how you painted your sunglasses with nail polish. I have been thinking of doing this to some glasses I don't wear much and you have provided me with great motivation. Somehow changing glasses around has felt taboo. Time to change that!

RED ACCENTS FOR WINTER (LUNAR YEAR OUTFIT IDEAS)

For me, the red is the colour of love, good luck and passion. With Lunar Year Festivities and Valentine's Day being just around the corner, it is the perfect time to start embracing and wearing red. How to wear red in the winter? Now, it doesn't have to be a red from head to toe outfit. If you're not confident enough to rock the all red look or you don't want to invest into red clothing items, you can always start small and opt for red accessories such as scarves, leggings/tights, hats, bags, shoes and etc. Moreover, you can embrace red with your beauty options. The bold red lip look will never get old. A nice red manicure is always a classic. If you're bold enough, you can even try embracing the red eye-shadow trend.  HOW TO WEAR RED ACCENTS IN WINTER?

1. RED ACCESSORIES: JEWELRY ITEMS, HAIR ACCESSORIES, SCARVES, BAGS, TIGHTS/ LEGGINGS AND HATS/BEANIES There are so many ways to accessorize with red.  Jewellery (or jewelry if you prefer the American spelling) is ano…

10 STYLE LESSONS LEARNED FROM MALENA/ MONICA BELLUCCI

With summer being in full spring, I caught myself thinking about iconic summer outfits. Do you know what came to my mind? Costumes/outfits worn by Monica Belluci when she played Malena Scordia in an iconic Italian movie set on Sicily.  The costumes for that movie were designed by an acclaimed Italian costume designer Maurizio Millenotti and he outdone himself! Seeing that Malena is a historical movie, Maurizio choose quite timeless outfits and cuts that will ever go out of style. That fact makes Malena movie the perfect place to look for inspiration! Moreover, I feel that Monica Belluci's personal style is quite similar to Malena's (i.e. to the style of the character she is playing). There is definitely a Mediterranean lady feel about Malena/Monica Bellucci. What says summer better than Mediterranean and Sicily? Today we'll analyze Malena's style and see what we can learn from her. There is much to learn! Having analyzed looks that Monica wore in iconic Malena film, I…

HOW TO STYLE A BROWN FAUX LEATHER COAT?

Today I'll show you a couple of ways to start a brown faux leather/ faux fur coat. We'll start with a more dressed up version. Now, this brown coat comes with a faux fur hoodie and that gives it more of a casual vibe, similar to that of a parka jacket. So, I decided to dressed it up with accessories (always the best way to dress up an item). I paired this coat with predominately black accessories: a pair of stilettos, a bag, a pair of earrings and a headband. I also wore a statement necklace. The dress I was wearing under the coat was a simple grey dress (bought at Terranova some time ago), so I wasn't afraid to pile on the accessories.  Scroll down to see and read more.  DIY HEADBAND PROJECT: HOW I HAND SEWED THE FLORAL APPLICATIONS You already had the chance of seeing this DIY headband many times, but it's been a whole since I showed you how I actually made it.
