Sights to see, Places to visit/ Znamenitosti za vidjeti, mjesta za posjetiti (Hutovo blato/BIH)

This is the first and the last time I wore this faux leather necklace. I wore it this once because I wanted to show it to you but I actually made it for a friend of mine, knowing that she likes the red and black colour sheme. On the other hand, this is not the first time I visited nature resort Hutovo blato. Neither it is the first time I'm blogging about it. Morover, I have been here a number of a times and reported just how much I loved it. You can read my previous posts about nature resort Hutovo blato here,  here, here and here. If you visit Bosnia and Herzegovina, this is a spot to keep in mind.


Ovo je prvi i zadnji put što sam nosila ovu ogrlicu od eko kože, a stavila sam je samo da vam je pokažem jer sam je zapravo napravila za prijateljicu za koju znam da voli crveno crnu kombinaciju boja. No, ovo nije prvi put da sam posjetila park prirode Hutovo blato, a ni da sam pisala o njemu na blogu. Nekoliko puta sam bila tamo i pisala koliko mi se svidjelo, pa ako vas zanima možete pročitati stare objave na tu temu ovdje, ovdje, ovdje i ovdje. Posjetite li Bosnu i Herzegovinu, imajte ovo mjesto u vidu.


outfit : skirt vintage + hand painted, shirt: vintage, bag: vintage, sneakers: startas, necklace: diy
               














odjevna kombinacija....suknja : vintage + ručno oslikana, košulja i torba: vintage, ogrlica:moj radi, tenisice: startas



 


















Now, let's talk about the clothes I'm wore....This vintage skirt is really dear to me and to make her even more special, I decided to paint on it with textile paints. You may have seen this skirt before, but in the meantime the design I painted has became even more intricate. What can I say? I paint every day and I paint on just about anything. I always had this great need to make and create something with my own hands. I've completed this look with a vintage shirt and bag. ...Startas sneakers were a must, really I don't know how I could have lived without them. 



Sada, idemo malo pričati o odjeći koju sam nosila....Suknja je vintage i jako mi je draga, pa sam je odlučila napraviti još dražom tako da sam je ručno oslikala tekstilnim bojama. Možda ste već vidjeli ovu suknju, ali od tada sam učinila sliku na njoj još složenijom. Što reći? Slikam svaki dan i na svemu što bi dođe po ruku, a uvijek sam imala tu veliku potrebu da stvaram i radim stvari svojim vlastitim rukama. Upotpunila sam je s vintage košuljom i torbicom, te  startas tenisicama ( ne znam kako sam mogla živjeti bez njih).

  6. Sjećam se tvojih starijih postova s ovog mjesta i svaki put mi je sve ljepše i ljepše :) Baš kao što Matea kaže, djeluje savršeno za opuštanje. Ti si mi super zgodna, kao i uvijek, a torba me posebno oduševila! Ne znam je li to nešto novije ili ju nismo imali prilike vidjeti dosad, ali takvu si tražim već dugooo i prekrasna mi je!

    1. divna je ova torbica, bila je par puta na blogu već, a sjećam se još iz djetinjstva, malo se izlizala, ali ne mogu je se odreći:) još uvijek je rado nosim. Žao mi je što se odlomila kvačica za remen i ne znam kako bi je mogla pričvrstiti, ali i ovako mi je zanimljiva.

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…
