Once a bookworm always a bookworm (outfit post) / Jednom knjiški crv uvijek knjiški crv (odjevna objava)

If I was a shoppingholic I would say : 'I was so happy when I bought this tote bag, I mean isn't this inscription so adorable?'. However, since I'm a DIYaholic, I must say: 'I was so happy when I hand painted this old tote bag. Isn't this incription I made so adorable?'. Hm, now that I think about it, there is a certain similiarity between a shopaholic and a DIYaholic. We're both passionate about things and we invest a certain amount of time in getting what we want. To each its own as they say, so far I prefer DIY, but there are certainly advantages to shopping, like not having to spend half a day cleaning your house after all your DIY projects. So you remember these sunglasses that I repainted recently? Well, there is another DIY element in the look and it is this lovely earring that I will talk more about  some other time.....

In the meantime, you can see this tote bag styled for the first time here. You can see one of my numerous 'let's paint on clothes' projects here.  Now, about the oufit....sorry, I'm not feeling it.  Let's talk about books instead. At the moment I'm reading Les Misérables. I can't believe I haven't read it before, because I've read most of the classics. I tell you, I'm so head over heels with this novel. I'm so glad I gave up on watching the recent movie version....I must have heard somewhere how it ends but it didn't stay in my head, so no spoilers please. Don't tell me how it ends! Please don't!


Kada bi bila ovisnica o kupnji, rekla bi kako sam jako sretna što sam kupila ovu tote torbu i zar nije natpis na njoj presladak, no pošto sam "uzdaj se u se i u svoje kljuse" tip žene, moram reći kako mi se jako sviđa ovaj stari cener na kojem sam sama napisala ovaj natpis i nacrtala ilustracije. Moram reći kada razmislim, doista postoje sličnosti između šopingholičarki i nas DIYholičarki. I jedne i druge ulažemo određen dio vremena i poprilično strasti u to da dobijemo ono što želimo. Sto ljudi, sto ćudi, kako kažu, meni je ovo zabavnije, ali postoje određene prednosti kupovine sigurna sam, kao npr. ne morati čistiti cijeli dan kuću nakon svih tih " mojih ruku djelo pod svaku cijenu" aktivnosti. Sjećate se ovih sunčanih koje sam nedavno prebojala...dobro, ali od zanimljivosti ima još jedna moja kreacija, a to je ova krasna naušnica o kojoj ću govoriti neki drugi put....

U međuvremenu, evo poveznica za objavu u kojoj sam nosila ovaj ceker prvi put. Još jedna poveznica  na jednu od sto mojih objava o slikanju na odjeću, otiđite ako želite vidjeti koju sam tekstilnu boju koristila. Sada što se tiče odjevne kombinacije....e nešto mi se ne da, već se tekst odužio pa za kraj samo da vam kažem da trenutno čitam Jadnike i da sam oduševljenja. Baš čudno da je nisam prije pročitala i znam da sam na nekom predavanju sigurno raspravljala o njoj, ali sad se ne mogu sjetiti kraja, a i ne želim. Filmsku verziju sam prestala gledati nakon petnaest minuta i sad mi je baš drago.... Nemojte mi otkriti kraj!

  13. The worm has turned....out amazing :) Hello cute bookworm! Great job on the bag and very cool dress. Always SO happy to see those gorgeous legs and the open-toed shoes are a nice bonus as well. So exciting :) Beautiful closeups too, dear. So glad you include those, you are quite lovely! As for the ending of Les Mis, I will not spoil it except to say the plot really gets moving when the Avengers show up. Shhhhhhhh! :) xoxo

  26. Aw, I have to read this book too, because I saw the musical and it was amazing (I liked the songs and the story generally) :) And you did great DIY, I always repeated to myself (and to others) that the DIYs are great, because these things have special meaning to us :) And what's more, you look so pretty and feminine in this dress, Ivana ;)

  29. Sjajno izgledaš i jako mi se sviđa kako si svezala maramu, baš je podiglo kombinaciju :) Jadnici su mi jedna od najdražih knjiga ikad još od srednje škole, baš sam si prije par mjeseci kupila jedno predivno englesko izdanje, totalno za zaljubljenike :) A tek mjuzikl...(ali ne film).

    1. hvala ti puno:) Imam osjećaj da će i meni postati jedna od najdražih knjiga, skoro sam već gotova s prvom knjigom (imam ona izdanja večernjeg).

      ja sam čak bila kupila izdanje na francuskom, naravno ne s namjerom da ga pročitam jer znam da francuski neću naučiti u skoroj budućnosti, nego jer mi se jako svidjelo...ispalo je da sam knjigu poklonila nekome tko zna francuski, tako da je sve super ispalo.

  38. Dear Ivana, I like you so much in this look, you look wonderful, very elegant and like a true lady <3 And I think you are not only a DIYaholic - you are an artist and I love as usual what you created. I think I'm more the bookaholic ... although I have to admit that I haven't read Les Miserables so far. Obviously this is a fail as you are so fascinated by this book. At least there is no danger that I can tell you the end :) Wish you a wonderful rest of the week!

  43. I am absolutely DIYaholic, and more, I hate shopping the last time, I always thing that there is no personality in the stores now, I meen, every items is boring and everything is the same, so I prefer to change the items by myself or inventing new way to repair my old clothes! So I always inspired by your DIYmaking and find many interesting ideas! YOur bag is lovely!

    This is interesting, I have read other books by Victor Hugo but not Les Miserables. Seen the movie but I know it is not the same as to read the book.

  61. i think you know, that i love your green dress. and now i see you for the first time wearing a belt on this. but i think that this belt is very unique and it looks for me, that this thing has a little bit of an hard-look/domina-style. in my opinion it´s not the right place and outfit to wear a belt like this. it reminds me all the time on a (domina) belt like this one: http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/NjgzWDEwMjQ=/z/DZMAAOSwfcVULG3D/$_72.JPG

    ok this thing is red, but i think you know what i mean.

    a belt like this one http://g.nordstromimage.com/ImageGallery/store/product/Large/1/_5743161.jpg - just in white - would look great on this.

    your thoughts?

  62. my husband bought me this belt, so it is his taste:)..but I think with this dress, this belt is ok. If it was some other dress ( a shorter one) than I think it would be too much. This way it seems like an ordinary outfit.

    I do like that second belt, the one you suggested in your link. This belt is perfect!

Wearing the First Dress I Ever Made: A Grey Midi Dress

Here it is: the first dress I have ever made entirely by myself. I did make some summer dresses in the past, but I had sown them without a pattern and a sewing machine and at any rate I wouldn't call them very accomplished. I mean, they weren't nearly as polished as this dress and they were not nearly as complex to make. I'm very happy with how this dress turned out. I'm even happier I took this sewing course in the first place because now I can make more dresses like this one! If you remember my November highlights post, you might remember that I've mentioned how I've recently finished a beginning fashion tailoring and sewing course with designer Stanka Zovko. 

I promised to show you the dress I made for my course 'graduation'. At the end of this lovely sewing course, you get to choose not only what you're going to make, but also the material and the pattern.  The sewing pattern is typically chosen from one of the sewing magazines this designer has …

February recap / sažetak veljače

You have seen (more or less) what was February like for me. Now tell me... what was February like for you? Are you happy that it's already March or do you feel like time is flying too fast?Are you looking forward to the spring?

 As far as blogging goes, it seems that I have became more focused on fashion illustrations. In the next month the illustrations will have their place, but there will be more focus on DIY....or at least I think so, because I'm kind of heading in that direction. Apart from that, I have no plans. I have so many ideas when it comes to what I want to blog about, that I often have hard time deciding what not to include. As always, feel free to write about what you would like to see.

How To Style Animal Print? + An Autumnal Fairy Tale at Ethno Village Near Medugorje

With winter at our doorstep, I think it's important to make the most out of the left over autumn days. With that in mind, my husband and I payed another visit to our favourite (still not officially opened!) ethno village in vicinity of Medugorje. I wrote about this eco/ethno village a number of times, so if you want to know more (or just see more photographs) feel free to check out my old posts herehereherehere and here.  Autumn is Herzegovina is always gorgeous, and this year hasn't been an exception. We had some sudden weather changes and drastic changes of temperature, but I would still describe this autumn as a beautiful one. The Sunday this photographs were taken on was rather gorgeous, so I'm certainly glad we went on this little trip. I know I'm repeating myself, but I do cherish moments like this. Every time I step into this little village, I feel as if the time has stopped or rather like I have just travelled in time. It's such a charming place! I h…
