Heart shaped necklace (outfit post)/ Ogrlica u obliku srca (odjevna kombinacija)

It's finally time for you to see how I styled this DIY heart necklace ( I know I promised it two weeks ago but I had some technical problems). You can find the tutorial about the making of this environmentally friendly necklace here. For those interested in that kind of information, the photographs for this post were taken in Mostar, about two weeks ago. The weather is this extremely warm, but fortunately Mostar has a lot of shade (where one can seek when the sun becomes too strong.)

One of advantages to blogging is the possibility of making interesting friends. My blog allowed me to make friends with this adorable duck family in Mostar. They will be featured in this post so you can get to meet them if you already haven't met them. They are so adorable that I will gladly forgive them the stealing of the spotlight;) If you look closely you can see them even in my close ups.

Vrijeme je da konačno vidite kako sam nosila ovu srcoliku ogrlicu koju sam sama napravila (znam da sam to davno obećala, ali postojali su tehnički problemi). Možete pročitati kako napraviti ovu ekološku ogrlicu ovdje. Fotografije za ovu objavu uslikane su otprilike prije dva tjedna u Mostaru (za one koje to zanima). Vrijeme je i dalje veoma toplo, ali srećom u Mostaru ima puno hlada u koji se može pobjeći kada sunce postane prejako.

Blog može poslužiti jako lijepo i za sklapanje prijateljstva, a u Mostaru mi je omogućio da se sprijateljim s ovim preslatkom pačjom obitelji. Biti će dio ove objave, tako da ih možete upoznati ako već niste. Tako su preslatki da ću im rado oprostiti što uvijek budu u centru pažnje.;) Pogledate li pažljivo, možete ih vidjeti čak i na onim mojim fotografijama izbliza.

  6. That necklace is a work of art. Love the simple black dress and the groovy sandals, too.
    What a beautiufl place, all those historical buildings. Our local ducks insist on waddling about the town centre instead of the park, it's very odd to see them outside shops. x

  12. I would call this look "simple elegance". The black dress and the red necklace is just perfect combination: nice contrast, dramatic contradiction and just beautiful together. Nice place, those buildings look charming and the ducks are just adorable!

  15. Another amazing Look, dear Ivana! Your dress is very elegant and suits you perfect. And your DIY necklace ... love it! It is beautiful and the highlight of this georgous outfit.
    The pics of Mostar are magnificent. I have never been there. It must be beautiful, despite the awkward past.

    Have a wonderful Weekend!

  20. The minimalist style of this black maxi dress is the perfect "frame" for your heart shaped necklace and it really stands out. So cute that the ducks showed up for your photos :)

    You should totally DIY a version of that clutch. I bet it would be fab!

  24. It was brilliant to pair the necklace with a simple black dress, Ivana, it stands up a lot and definitely give a sexy edge to the whole look. I think this is the first time I see you with a long dress such as this and I must say you look so pretty! You have a great height and long dress just look lovely on you!

  38. Hi Ivana, Now I understand why you said you could not bring yourself to eat ducks. When you see them alive and kicking, they are just so cute. I'm pretty torn at times when I look at animals and yet love meat. As for your DIY necklace, I don't know if I'm interpreting correctly or it's just some loose threads from the picture. It looks like a mended broken heart with some bits of flaws here and there and that's what makes the heart so beautiful because a heart could never be perfect but it could be beautiful because of the many healed wounds on it. Ok maybe I'm being a little philosophical here. In your previous post, you look totally like your beautiful self without make up.

    RYC:
    Ivana, Thank you for your lovely words. Your comments always make me smile. I'm not surprised that you've heard of the MBS Infinity pool. It has a life on its own! I've to admit that the sunset photo has got some tweaking done. The original photo didn't look as good as what my eyes saw so I tried to edit till what I saw. I literally lol at the part when you talked about how your hubby takes your photos! Sounds like mine at times! I see so many beautiful outfit shots on your blog so I'm sure your hubz is good in his ways. You're good typing your comment on the phone! I could never leave a blog comment on the phone. Something would sure screw up after I typed an essay.

HOW TO STYLE AN OVERSIZED BEIGE SCARF: 2 OUTFIT PROPOSALS

Whether you're longing for spring to come asap or not, one thing is certain-  winter is not going  anywhere. The cold weather is not going to end up anytime soon, not in this part of the world. It's snowing in most of Europe and the weather is quite cold. What are we do to if not dress appropriately, and that means dress as warmly as possible? Not long ago I published a post about winter accessories that keep us warm. Today I'll be talking about one of them in particular and that would be the oversized scarf.  I've always loved big scarves and I have quite a few of them, some vintage, some I made myself. Lately, however it occurred to me that I should get one of those new trendy oversized ones, the kind that you can use as blanket. You know how much I love colour, right? Well, beige is no exception so I was happy to see it listed as one of the biggest trends this season. I picked up this beige oversized scarf for next to nothing in New Yorker. It's super cozy and …

HOW TO MAKE 3D FASHION ILLUSTRATION DRESSES WITH DRY FLOWERS?

Everyone knows that flowers make for a great prop, something very useful in these visual days. Moreover, in this time of social media, we are all looking for good photography props, aren't we? Bloggers, influences and what not, everyone wants to make their photographs pop. Flowers are a great way to do just that. Dried flowers are even better, because you don't have to worry about their expiry date. Dried flowers are also a great way to recycle (when you make your own) and preserve memories. I've been drying flowers for quite some time and there is really nothing to it. You can also buy dried flowers (or even fresh ones if you prefer). They are simply a perfect addition to flat lay photography.
Today I'll speak about creating 3D dresses on fashion illustrations. Now, you don't have to know how to do fashion illustration to try your hand at this. You can trace some of the fashion templates available online (be sure to make sure the author is o.k with that) or you c…

BEST BOOKS AND FAV WRITERS OF 2018

Writing this post took forever, and not just because I'm not exactly sure how many books I read in 2018. I did try to keep a track on goodreads but sometimes I forget to add books that I'm reading there. I'd say that I probably read around 80 books last year, give or take a dozen. I do love to read, as readers of my blog might already know or suspect. Here comes a list of my last year favourites. The list is written in no particular order. The links are not affiliated ( I tried to join Amazon affiliate program in the past but they rejected me saying that my blog doesn't have enough views so yeah it's all regular links). In cases of classics the books are linked to sites such as Project Gutenberg or Oxford University where you can find free copies. In case of modern works, I linked them up to my own blog posts (when relevant), Wikipedia or the authors' sites. 



I had a pretty good reading year, I'd say. Some of the books I read I actually discovered in my ow…
