Deja vu (outfit post/ odjevna objava)

Deja vu. At this exact location in Split last Summer, we shot an outfit post with me wearing this moda in dress. I didn't plan it to happen but now it did, I find it amusing. Last time I paired this dress with sneakers and a denim vest. This time I paired it with a hat, wedges and a DIY necklace. Which version do you prefer? You can see the old outfit post here.

I loved shopping at Moda in (both for myself and others), but the store that was in my neighbourhood closed down and I can't track them down. They were a small low cost local bussiness, so maybe they didn't make it. I'm still looking out so if I find them again, I'll let you know. It is so hard to make it today in this world of mass production. I've tried starting a bussiness a few times and always I failed. C'est la vie.  To find peace, between the frequent disappointments and challanges of life, that is the art of living. Sometimes finding peace is not about finding success, but about knowing that you have tried your hardest.

Deja vu. Na ovoj istoj lokaciju u Splitu prošle godine, snimili smo odjevnu objavu u kojoj sam ja nosila ovu istu moda in haljinu. Nisam to planirala, ali sada mi je baš zabavno. Prošli put sam je ukombinirala s tenisicima i prslukom od jeansa, a ovaj put s sandalama s punom petom i ogrlicom koja je moja kreacija. Koja verzija vam se više sviđa? Možete vidjeti prošlogodišnju objavu ovdje.

Voljela sam kupovati u Modi in ( i za sebe  i za druge), ali trgovina iz moga susjedstva se zatvorila i ne mogu je pronaći na novoj lokaciji, ako ta uopće i postoji. Bili su mala lokalna kompanija, jako povoljna, pa tko zna, možda su se i ugasili. Još ih tražim, pa ako ih nađem, javim. Tako je teško uspjeti danas u vremenu masovne proizvodnje.  I sama sam pokušavala nekoliko puta otvoriti neki svoj posao, ali nikad mi nije uspjelo. To je život. Pronaći mir, između čestih razočarenja i izazova života, to je umijeće življenja. Ponekad pronaći mir nije isto što i pronaći uspjeh, već prije znati da si dao sve od sebe.

  1. It Is not that easy to set up and run a business successfully, someone once said that there will be ups and downs but if one can withstand all that challenges then the business will too. Loving your outfit dear,ans have a great weekend.

  2. I like both versions! I don't know what I like better. Although right now, I'd probably go for the vest/sneakers for comfort :)

    What kind of business did you start? I grew up in a family business, and they start/stop businesses all the time. Even when I try to get away from it, it's in my blood. I just have to have thick skin, keep my head up high, persevere, or reinvent when something fails... and I've failed and lost money on some things. I understand the feeling!

    Life is not about happiness but instead finding joy in everything, even if it's something really small.

    2. I absolutely agree with you. It is important to know that failing is not some great tragedy because we can (and hopefully will) try again.

      I didn't actually got to opening a bussiness, just tried...but I changed a number of jobs in my life (often because the company I would work for closed) and that made me less afraid of starting anew.

      It's not easy starting from nothing but it isn't so terribly difficult either once our mindset is right.

  12. Baš mi je super ova slučajnost sa lokacijom i odjećom :) I sviđaju mi se obje kombinacije iako sam ja više tip od tenisica pa, kad bi morala, odlučila bi se za onu prošlu, ali ti obje izvrsno stoje! :)

    Ja sam razmišljala o pokretanju vlastitog posla i to mi je još uvijek u nekim budućim planovima zacrtano, ali već godinama radim kao slobodnjak i skačem s projekta na projekt, ali ponekad se zna dogoditi ono grozno zatišje jer je poslovna klima pogotovo u kreativnim područjima totalna koma zadnjih godina i onda se znam zapitati što ako takvo stanje potraje. Ali ne dam se u negativne misli nikad :D

    1. i kod mene je ista situacija, nekad imam toliko posla da ne znam kuda bi sa sobom, a onda dođe opet taj prazni hod, ali i to prođe, bitno je samo stalno biti uporan, pa na kraju sve na svoje dođe.

    1. moguće, mislim da su robu šivali u Kninu ili tako nešto, a dućana su imali po Splitu i baš sam puno djevojaka i žena viđala u njihovim stvarima.

  18. Love both looks. You maintained a red shirt with both look. That's cute.

    You didn't fail, the business failed, but you gained an experience which will be useful next time you try, if you make use if the experience.

  25. Haljinica je preslatka i odlična je u obje kombinacije, a ja malo više naginjem glasanju za ovu. :)
    Jednom mi je netko rekao da se veselim i osjećaju razočaranja...jer dok god se javlja znači da u meni ima i dovoljno ljubavi za ono što radim i dovoljno snage da još jednom krenem u novi pokušaj. I slažem se, gore od tog razočaranja je stanje ravnodušnosti.

  33. Hi Ivana! This is such a cool outfit! Sorry I haven''t been visiting. I've been away camping for 10 days and there really is no reception there for checking my phone-! I adore the bright colours of your outfit and SUCH a fun hat- that backdrop is like the ideal setting for your outfit! x

  37. Ova ideja može da postane i mala tradicija :) Meni su obe kombinacije divne i zaista ne znam da kažem koja mi se više sviđa. Ja kako naletim na neku manju prodavnicu koja mi se sviđa, čini mi se da istog trenutka nestane :/ Ako iko treba da ima nešto tako, onda si to upravo ti i svim srcem želim da se ostvariš u toj ulozi.

  38. You look great in both version of the outfit.. but I'd always prefer (wedge) heels over sneakers. But that's just my silly preference! :-P

    Since I'm a football fan.. as soon as I saw Hadjuk on the wall.. I knew it had to be in Split. :-D

    If I may ask.. what kind of businesses did you start? And what are the most important lessons you've learned?

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.

Vidjeli ste (više-manje) kako sam provela veljaču...sada mi recite, kakav je vama bio prošli mjesec? Veselite li se proljeću? Jeste li jedva dočekali ožujak ili vam je vrijeme prebrzo proletjelo? Ne zaboravite da nam možda i nije još stiglo i da ime za mjesec ožujak potječe od st…

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 …

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…
