In front of my grandmother's house (outfit post) / Ispred kuće moje bake (odjevna kombinacija)

 We're back in Gdinj. This time in front of my grandmother's house, not on her terrace. The origin of the world Gdinj is, most likely, to be found in an old Slavic word meaning forest. Indeed, this part of the island is very green. In the folllowing days, you will have the chance to learn a bit more about this little village as I plan to write about it in more detail. In the meantime, you can see last years posts here and here. Now, about the outfit. I wore this outfit to church. This white skirt used to belong to my mother and I wore it over a dress. It's something I do often because I don't own enough tops. To make this retro and feminine outfit more interesting, I added a  faux leather and stone necklace I had made myself. You had the chance to read why stones fascinate me so much in my last post. Plus, I sure do love it when a necklace is a statement piece of an outfit

Evo nas ponovo u Gdinju. Ovaj put ispred kuće moje bake, ne na njenoj taraci. Podrijetlo riječi Gdinj možemo vjerojatno naći u staroslavenskoj riječi koja označava šumu. Doista, ovaj dio otoka je jako zelen.  Idućih dana imati ćete prilike naučiti više o ovom malo selu jer planiram malo detaljnije pričati o njemu. U međuvremenu možete vidjeti objave od prošle godine, ovdje,  i ovdje. Sada nešto o odjevnoj kombinaciji. Suknja je nekad bila majčina, a nosila sam je preko haljine. To često radim, jer nemam puno majica u ormaru. Kako bi učinila ovu retro i ženstvenu kombinacju malo zanimljivijom, dodala sam ogrlicu od kamenja i eko kože. Mogli ste u prošloj objavi pročitatit zašto me kamenje tako fascinira. Uz to, doista volim kada je ogrlica centralni dio odjevne kombinacija.

  11. Oh dear Ivana, this is my favorite outfit post: your attitude, the composition of it, the picturesque area, you smiling and laughing. And because I love red too!
    Few times I wore myself dresses as a top, for the print/colors combo, so I think I don't have enough tops neither. Or we like much to play?! :)
    You look sexy, very elegant, feminine, love the yellow mix and match thing!

  12. Ciao Ivana! Mi piace molto l'abbinamento di colori che hai usato per questo look! La gonna a tubino ti sta benissimo. Ps. Grazie per i tuoi commenti, il tuo italiano è perfetto

  26. I like to wear skirts over dresses too. I like how the waistband of this one creates that fun detail just above the waistband of your skirt. Your DIY statement necklaces are always so eye catching and this one is no exception.

    1. I liked how it created a funny detail too, making it look a bit like a belt, but I only realized it will do that when I put the skirt on:)

  32. That is actually a great idea! I have so many dresses.. and I could easily use them as tops! Though.. I usually prefer to wear my tops on the outside, because I don't have that much of a well-defined waist. You, on the other hand, look gorgeous in this outfit! :)

    Love these photos.. your grandmother lives in a nice place that has a very authentic and traditional feel! :)

  42. Firstly, I really like your idea for the next posts, because I'd love to know something more about this village and some of the island of your country in general :) What's more, I love your outfit, this skirt, which used to be your mum's skirt is stunning, personally I find is as quite modern, not retro at all :P What about your comment, I think that your idea to sew every single stone is really great (but I suppose that it's also time-consuming), because ready-to-wear necklace looks really unique :) You know me, I'm huge fan of every fashion recycling so keep your great work up, Ivana :)

  56. So special to have the link across 3 generations in this post: your grandma's house, wearing your mother's skirt - which, by the way, looks excellent worn over a dress-as-top. And you're right, your hand-made statement necklace really provides a focal point to the whole outfit.

My fashion illustration of the day + book review / Moja modna ilustracija dana + ogled knjige ( Le Diable au corps) 6.12.2016

This morning I read an amazing novel. Le Diable au corps (translated as The Devil In the Flesh) is a novel by Raymond Radiquet. Believe it or not, this was by first book by this French writer. I don't think I even heard of him before, which is odd, but well, it happens. In his time, Raymond was quite a celebrity and he is still considered as one of the important French writers of that period. Did I like this novel? Quite frankly, I loved it. I just couldn't put this novel down. I must have read it an hour or so. I got up a bit more earlier this morning so I actually had time to read it with my morning coffee (it is not a very long novel but still it is amazing how easy it was to find one's self glued to those pages). Perhaps I should make it a habit, getting up more early so I can read more. 
Jutros sam pročitala divan roman. Đavo u tijelu  (naslov izvornika Le Diable au corps) je roman Raymonda Radiqueta. Vjerovali ili ne, ovo je moj prvi roman ovoga pisca. Mislim da nika…

Fashion illustrations of the day (markers)

Hello darlings! How are you? Can you believe that February ends today? This month has just flown by. I know it's the shortest month in the year but still. Today I'm going to share 3 fashion illustrations and sketches with you. The medium for all of them is marker on paper. I don't work with markers that often, but sometimes it is good to try something different. The fashion sketches I'm sharing are all about 3 colours: purple, green and red. Spring is in the air, so this is my reflection on all those trends for the new season. The first illustration shows a girl wearing a purple and blue jumpsuit. The second illustration features a girl wearing a transparent green dress with a top and a skirt under that dress. The third illustration shows two girls in red gowns.

February Recap (art & DIY projects & outfits)

I've put a lot of effort into blogging this February, I hope it shows. As far as the content goes, February was similar to January, mostly a mix of my illustrations and outfit posts (here). This month I was full of positing ideas and I managed to make many of them happen. I feel pretty good about that. The only thing I feel bad about is making my blog monolingual and not using my other languages, but translating texts from English to other languages takes such a long time. It is so much easier to just write in English.  Hopefully, I'll manage to change that and make my blog multilingual again. I need to organize my time better. Fingers crossed. For March I already have a few posts prepared. You can expect more art (mostly fashion illustrations) & outfit posts. 








DIY PROJECTS 
I shared two DIY projects in February, one about making a Barbie dress, the other was about how to paint a plant container. I don't have any DIY projects prepared for March, but I'm sure that I…
