The Sea Lady (outfit post) / Morska žena (odjevna objava), Split city, Zenta Marine

Yesterday I wore this polka dress (available here) in a casual way, promising to show you how to dress it up today. We must keep our promises, right? Well, the easiest way to dress up just about anything is by choosing a nice pair of high heels. This time I opted for orange sandals with very high heels that matched the colour of the sunset (not that I was planning it).

 In case anyone is interested, the location were the photographs were taken is Zenta in Split city, Croatia. I loved hanging out here when I was a little girl, dreaming that some day one of these boats would be mine. Speaking about the longing for the sea, I have a reading recommendations for you. I'm finished The Sea Lady by Margaret Drabble and it is absolutely brilliant. If you are interested, I might share a review.

Jučer sam nosila ovu haljinicu na točkice (dostupna ovdje)  u ležeroj kombinaciji, a obećala sam vam danas pokazati sređeniju verziju danas. Svojih obećanja se moramo držati, zar ne? Najlakši način za učiniti svaku kombinaciju sređenijom je odabrati lijep par visokih peta. Ovaj put  sam izabrala narančaste sandale s jako visokom petom koje su se slagale s bojom zalaska sunca ( mada nisam to planirala). 

Mjesto snimanja je Zenta u Splitu (ako nekoga zanima). Kada sam bila mala, voljela sam tu provoditi vrijeme i sanjariti da će jedan od ovih brodova jednog dana biti moj. Kada već pričamo o čežnji za morem, imam preporuku za vas. Upravo završavam s romanom Margaret Drabble The Sea Lady (ne znam je li još preveden kod nas) i oduševljena sam s njim. Ukoliko vas zanima, napravila bi i ogled.

  23. Da opet ne hvalim haljinu, koja je stvarno divna, ja ću opet reći wow za tvoje noge, a pogotovo ovako u visokim petama. I sama bi se okrenula za tobom na ulici. :D
    Druga stvar, a ne manje bitna, moram pohvaliti tvog fotografa, ti i Tijana me "jutros" ubijate tim svojim zalascima. :)
    A što se knjige tiče - da, da, da, želimo znati više o njoj. :)

  25. Ta predivna haljina pa još sa tom ešarpom, ma pun pogodak :) Uvek volim kada ima nekog pokreta na slikama, kao što ešarpa "leti" na nekima od njih. Vidim i zbog čega ti je to mesto posebno i nikad se ne zna, možda ti se želja ostvari ;)

  44. what a beautiful pair of heels! actually i should say peep toe heels. do you wear this pair of heels to another fashion combo? Would be interesting to see, which kind of clothings you choose to this heels.

    sorry my dear, but i have to say, that your eyeshadow is too much. try to lay off this much smaller, cause this colour is way to bright for this bold lay off.
    try to cover just your upper eyelid - that´s it, not more. around your eyebrow you can use another colour. i use most of it 2 different colours for my eye make up: one for my eyelid and another for the area between eyelid and eyebrow.

    On this post on my blog, you can see what i mean: http://jennifer-femininundmodisch.blogspot.de/2014/04/styling-farblich-akzente-setzen.html

    i know this kind of eye make up is not easy, but with much enough training it´s very easy to do.

    Bye.

    Jennifer

TWO WAYS TO STYLE A SCARF (SUSTAINABLE FASHION FILES)

Today I'll show you two ways to style a scarf: one is by wrapping it around your headband and the other by using it as a belt for your dress.  I'm also going to link up old posts with more ideas for styling this scarf, offering you about a dozen ideas. The first idea is a common one. Wearing a belt around your dress is an easy way to accentuate your waist. The other outfit proposal shows a fresh styling trick: wearing your scarf wrapped around your headband. Yes, you read that right. This is actually such an easy way to make the most out of your headband(s). I own only one headband but by wrapping different scarves around it, it seems like I have a dozen of them.  As for the two outfits I'm going to show to you, they are both summer ones. The colour palette for these looks is pretty neutral, but I jazzed it up by choosing printed white items. I do like the freshness that the white colour offers, but as a lover of prints I tend to compromise by opting for printed white ite…

SUMMER TO AUTUMN OUTFITS FEATURING A VINTAGE BLACK MAXI DRESS

Today I'll show you seven ways  to wear a black maxi dress. This beautiful vintage dress was gifted to me by a family member. I don't own many solid black maxi dresses (probably because I'm addicted to bold prints and colours). I do own quite a few little black dress (because a LBD is such a classical piece) but not that many black ones in maxi length. In fact, I believe this is the only plain black maxi dress I own. I find it really easy to style. I treat this maxi as a neutral piece and I wear it all year round. I actually added embroidery to it (it's a hobby of mine) but the embroidery detail isn't that big (for now) so I tend to style it as a plain black dress. By that I mean that I like to have fun with accessories when I wear this dress. I often wear it with statement necklaces I made myself or similar eye-catching accessories. Anyhow, I figured that with the summer to autumn transitioning that is going on right now, it would make sense to show you some tran…

FASHION ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY: ILLUSTRATED TOTE BAGS REDBUBBLE

I don't know what it is about the combination of tote bags and fashion illustrations that I like so much. Maybe it is simply a matter of combining two things that I love. I adore tote bags for their practicality, I like to carry one with me (often tucked in my regular bag) at all times because you never know. We all know that the typical disposable plastic grocery bags are a huge no-no for the environment, so a tote bag is a must (even if just for grocery shopping).  I personally like to wear tote bags even on occasions that have nothing to do with grocery lists, but to each his own. As for fashion illustration, well I don't have to explain that. I have literally loved fashion illustration for as long as I can remember. Joining my creative skills with tote bags seemed logical! Some of you might remember that I even hand painted some vintage tote bags. In fact, you had the chance of seeing one of those tote bags recently here. As much as I enjoy using textile prints, I also li…
