Something old, something new....Nešto staro, nešto novo.......


I wore a new black blazer in my last outfit ( click here) and I'm wearing an old one in this outfit. The brooch I'm wearing is my own creation, made from faux leather and coffee. Yes, you read that right. Coffee!!! I glued coffee beans onto the faux leather base (cut out from a second hand faux leather coat so that's basically triple recycling) and then I decorated the brooch with nail-polish. Usually I don't use glue for DIY projects, but that time I decided to make an exception. How do you like my creation?

Now, I will say a few words about the location because to me they are as important as outfits. You know that I love sharing beautiful places with you. Do you like bridges? If you do, you will most likely enjoy visiting Mostar city. Do know how Mostar city got its name? The noun 'most' means bridge and -ar is a suffix used to create an occupation. You know like suffix -r is added to a verb 'drive' to form a noun 'driver'. So, mostar was a person whose job it was to collect fees from people crossing the brige. Fun fact, ha? There are many bridges in Mostar city and this one you see is called Custom's Bridge. At the very beginning of this bridge, you can see little stations where custom officers were placed. 

Nosila sam novi crni sako u prošloj objavi ( pogledajte ovdje), a u današnjoj nosim stari. Broš koji nosim je moja kreacija, napravljena od eko kože i kave. Da, dobro ste pročitali, od kave! Zalijepila sam kavu na bazu od eko kože koju sam izrezala od staroga second hand kaputa tako da je to praktički trostruko recikliranje i onda sam tako nastali broš ukrasila lakom za nokte. Obično ne koristim ljepilo za sam svoj majstor projekte, ali toga puta sam napravila iznimku. Kako vam se sviđa moja kreacija?


Sada, nešto i o mjestu snimanja jer je ono za mene važno koliko i odjeća. Znate koliko s vama volim podijeliti prekrasna mjesta. Volite li mostove? Ukoliko da, vjerojatno ćete uživati u gradu Mostaru. Znate li kako je Mostar dobio ime? Mostar je nekad bila osoba koja je naplaćivala prelazak mosta, a kao što znamo iz tvorbe riječi, zanimanje se obično dobije tako da se doda -ar imenici ili glagolu iz kojih se tvori. Danas možete vidjeti jednog od njih, takozvani Carinski most. Na samom početku možete vidjeti malo kućice u kojima su nekad bili carinici.

  2. Oh I love this outfit, Ivana which reminds me a bit of Clueless. :) Looking so stylish. And this bridge is a great location to shoot. 'Most' means actually bridge in Russian too. Interesting to get to know the story behind this city's name.

  8. I love that you always choose meaningful backgrounds for your photos as I love seeing pretty places as much as I enjoy pretty outfits. Very interesting how Mostar city got it's name. Stories like that are fun. This is a nice looking bridge. Our bridges in NYC don't look so quaint or charming.

    I'm ok with selfies in moderation as well but the key is moderation. Yes I have seen some accounts who just post selfies and nothing else and I find it off putting and yes creepy. I guess I try to stick with posting the types of photos that I would want to see.

    1. I'm exactly the same way when it comes to that, I try to post the kind of photographs I would love to see. In some cases, the large number of selfies is normal,for example when it comes to beauty bloggers but some people really take it too far.

  13. So those who collect tolls for bridges? Like trolls you mean? Pay toll to the troll and all that :) The coffee idea is genius. If you are ever in need of a little pick me up, soak your brooch in some hot water and voila :) That is a very cute shirt and you look amazing in it. Wonderful to see you in tights once again, dear. Not as fancy as the last set but, with those sexy legs, not really that important :) Still worked so wonderfully for me, dear!! Exactly what I needed to finish my night off, so wow!!

  26. Odlično ti stoji ova suknja, baš mi se jako sviđa! :) I nisam znala kako je Mostar dobio ime, baš mi je drago da si sad podijelila ovu informaciju :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Znaš da i sama delim tvoje mišljenje o lokacijama. Meni je malo dosadno kad se sve vrti oko odeće i jednog zida na koji se neko nasloni i to je to. Nisam znala za Mostar, tj. shvatam i sama da ima veze sa rečju most ali baš mi je interesantno kad provučeš tako neki detalj. Stvarno si prava umetnica i tvoje ideje ne prestaju da me oduševljavaju :) Izgeldaš predivno i odlično ti stoje tako uži komadi odeće ;)

    1. da, znam da su i tebi lokacije bitne....meni se čini da i odjeća bolje dolazi do izražaja kad se malo potrudimo oko mjesta snimanja...a i tako manje imam osjećaj da je pozornost na meni, pa sam onda nekako manje opterećena slikanjem.

  28. Joj koja linija...odlično ti stoje uske haljine i suknje, prava bomba. :))
    I ja se nadam da ćemo broš vidjeti i iz bliže, ali djeluje mi kao totalno originalna ideja i opet moram reći - svaka čast. :)
    Nisam znala za priču kako je dobio ime, ali da, kada malo bolje razmislim, logično. :D Lokacija i fotografije opet pet plus. :*

Love the yellow checkered skirt you wear with it and the blazer is the perfect match. And hopefully you know that not only you look very beautiful on the pictures but also your hair - and your DIY brooch <3
    Thank you also for sharing the story of the name for Mostar. It is very interesting (and new for me) that in Mostar are so many bridges and how this is connected with the name of this now. I learned again thanks to you something new!

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 …

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.

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…
