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

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

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…
