Princess Mononoke / Princeza Mononoke (Hand Painted Jeans and A DIY necklace For a Stroll in Mostar city)

 DIY projects always make me happy. Today I'm wearing a necklace that I made myself. In addition, the hair decoration is the result of my creative work. It is actually a necklace ( see how I wore it here and here), but I always find new ways for wearing my necklaces. If you want to see how to make this kind of statement necklace, check out my last post. I wore this outfit when I took a stroll in Mostar (you know I'm all about that be a tourist in your own city philosophy) with my husband. He said I look like princess Mononoke. What an original compliment!  Anyway, since I happen to like this epic anime movie, I didin't mind hearing that at all. 

Volim sama izrađivati stvari. Danas nosim ogrlicu koju sam sama napravila.  Uz to, ukras za kosu je također posljedica moga kreativnoga rad. Zapravo se radi o ogrlici (pogledajte kako sam je nosila ovdje i ovdje), ali uvijek pronalazim nove načine za nošenje svojih ogrlica. Želite li vidjeti kako pravim ovakav tip ogrlica, pogledajte moju prošlu objavu.  Ovo sam nosila za šetnju Mostarom (znate da sam uvijek pobornik one filozofije" budi turist u svom gradu") i dobila sam lijepi kompliment od muža koji mi je rekao da izgledam kao princeza Mononoke. Originalni kompliment nema što, a kako mi se taj epski crtani film jako sviđa, nemam ništa protiv.

  25. uvijek posebna i sa stilom

  26. Bravo za tvog muža! Mislim da nije mogao da izabere bolji kompliment. I mene asociraš na nju :) Toliko mi je interesantan spoj frizure, šminke, ogrlice, marame na torbi, oslikanih farmerki, pa još na tom mestu i posebno sa cvećem, nemam reči! Svaki detalj bi bio sam po sebi dovoljan ali ovako se još više ističu i čine pravu harmoniju u jednom savršenom spoju. Prelepo! <3

  27. Amazing outfit! This necklace is very original and it's 100% you - it fits very well to your style :) I've never seen princess mononoke, I've got it on my "watch-list" as well as couple other titles from Ghibli :)

  28. Potpuno drugačiji, neočekivani a opet tako lijep outfit ! :*

  34. Hello Ivana! I totally agree with your husband - you look like a princess, dear! What's more, I really like your DIY necklace, it looks even better than the ones, which you can find in stores - personally I love eye-catching and shiny things, so it's totally in my style, well done, Ivana! :) Futhermore, I see that the background of your photos - i.e. pink flowers - suits perfectly to your outfit, my dear! :)

    1. thanks darling!I'm happy you like my necklace so much:)

  35. Always nice to be compared to an Anime character! I don't know her but I do know you look really pretty and stylish in this! The diy painted flowers really stand out teamed with the blazer!

  36. Stai benissimo!! :)

  37. You're so talented Ivana - you can both paint, and create your own jewellery! It must be a very special feeling to wear such a statement necklace that you've made entirely yourself :) Also, how sweet of your husband to relate you to an anime princess, ah!! :)

  38. Great place for photoshooting, like your jacket!

  39. That is impressive the way you use a necklace to tie your hair and it turned out beautiful. Love how you and your husband enjoy playing tourists in your city, it shows how much you love living there.

    I'm happy to see (and surprised too) that you're applying your creativity into the DIY and the accessories creation! I mean, you're good at everything related with art and imagination, actually I think is such a good thing to be there creating everytime and everywhere, I mean... as much as possible!

    Love the necklace, the shape and obviously the colors that match perfect with your skin tone and the colors of your clothes! I laughed about the Princess Mononoke, but this is actually a very good compliment in my opinion! Haha

    Best regards, dear!

  56. Very pretty. Your pants are gorgeous, I really love them. Kisses :)

  57. I also love this philosophy, dear Ivanna, to be a tourist in your own city - there are always places that we don't know, or that we see with another feeling, for the second or even 10th time! Plus, Mostar seems to be very beautiful! I loved your necklace, you are so talented - and you know, you could have an online store! I also loved your makeup and your blazer; you always look so sweet and very beautiful!

  66. Pa da znaš da i izgledaš :) Svaka čast mužu na tako lijepome komplimentu :) Šiškice su te stvarno osvježile i predivno ti zaokružuju lice. Blazer se pak "pronašao" s cvijećem... divno mi izgledaš te se nadam da si uživala! :*

As I mentioned in one of my last post, I'm already thinking about what I might wear for all those festive occasions that are coming up. Autumn and Winter both have its fair share of festivities. Our social calendar can be quite busy this time of year with all the meetings, events, festivities, celebrations, family and work parties. Some of these social occasions come with a black tie dress code, so I decided to prepare some outfit ideas.  A bit of formal wear inspiration for  my readers. All of these photographs were taken the day before yesterday. We're enjoying a rather warm Autumn in Herzegovina but these outfits I'm sharing can be easily be adapted for colder weather. Just throw a warm coat or a blazer over them, and that would be that.  That's what I plan to do once it gets colder. Anyhow, all four dresses I'll be sharing with you today are from Rosegal. This is my second collaboration with this site, if you want you can have a look at my first one here. With…

Fashion Illustration Friday: Inspired by Colours of Autum

Time for another Fashion Illustration Friday talk. We'll talk autumn and share some new autumn inspired fashion illustrations & outfits. Autumn is a season with one of the most beautiful colour palettes. Just think about all those gorgeous gold and red leaves! Even the fruits of Autumn are visually stunning, for example the delicious and juicy fruits such as pomegranates and grapes. With so much to appeal to our senses, it's hard not to be appreciative of autumn. It is a stunning season indeed, so small wonder I was inspired to create some fashion art. Scroll down to see and read more. 

Besides enjoying the colours of autumn, I sure love wearing colour in autumn, and that's what I'll write about today. Whether we're talking about accessories or clothes, a bit of colour can take us a long way. Here are some illustrated & photographed colour combos to consider.

Is it too early to start reaching for those festive …


I was thinking about why I like tartan pattern so much, when one reason crossed my mind. I figured that it probably has something to do with the history and the culture behind this particular pattern. After all, I always say that traditional and folklore clothing (be it original or reproduced) carries additional value. Traditional patterns can be such an wonderful source of inspiration. Traditional patters have soul to them, one might say. The history of tartan is particularly interesting. Today we mostly associate tartan with Scotland, but according to some historians, tartan like fabrics were used by ancient Celtic populations spreading across the British Isles as early as the sixth and the eight century BC. Well, that one old pattern for sure! However, even if tartan clothes are really as old as ancient Celts, it is the still Scotland that is responsible for tartan we know today. Did you know that different tartan patterns can represent different Scottish families? Something like …
