Boromine sandals review (+ How to paint on clothes?)/ Recenzija boromina (+ Kako slikati na odjeći?)

This outfit post was shot last month, when it was still warm enough during the day to wear something like this. Nevertheless, I'm aware that this is probably the last post with boromine sandals (those living in Croatia will know what I'm talking about, because these sandals are quite popular here). I wore these sandals quite often last Summer. Boromine are really as comfortable as everyone says they are (once your feet get used to the them, you will feel like you're walking on clouds).  In fact, I wore them so much they have already started to look worn out.  You can see how I wore them  here, here,  here and here. Considering the price, I wasn't expecting them to start looking worn out so early on, but well at least they're incredibly comfortable plus I must be honest and say I literally wore them all the time, so no wonder. However, Autumn is here so bye-bye sandals. Yesterday, I actually wore boots for the first time! How's the weather been treating you? There are a few DIY elements in this outfit (what a surprise,right?). To start with, there is a red necklace I made myself from fimo a long time ago. The trousers have a DIY element to them as well. I have painted flowers on them. Have you ever tried painting on clothes?

Ovo je odjevna kombinacija iz prošloga mjeseca, ali još uvijek je dovoljno toplo tijekom dana za nositi nešto slično. Ipak, svjesna sam da mi je ovo skoro pa sigurno zadnja objava s ovim boromirama ( pretpostavljam da je većina as čula za boromire, ali ako niste to je novija varijanta borosana). Nosila sam ove sandale često prošloga ljeta. Stvarno su udobne kako svi kažu, kada vam se noga navikne na njih, to je kao da hodate po oblacima. Zapravo sam ih nosila toliko da već izgledaju iznošeno. U engleskom djelu teksta možete pronaći poveznice za odjevne kombinacije koje sam nosila s njima. S obzirom na cijenu, nisam očekivala da će tako brzo početi izgledati iznošene, ali barem su doista jako udobne...i da budem poštena stvarno sam ih jako često nosila. No, jesen je tu pa doviđenja sandalama. Jučer sam nosila čizme po prvi put! Kakvo je vrijeme kod vas? U ovoj odjevnoj kombinaciji ima par stvari koje sam sama ili izradila ili naslikala, npr. ova narukvica koju sam davno napravila od fima te ove hlače koje sam sama oslikala. Jeste li vi ikada probali slikati na odjeći? Saznajte sve što želite znati o slikanju s tekstilnim bojama ovdje.

  1. The trend these days is on embroidered designs to clothing. On creativity alone, I will grant you respect on something rather unconventional- painting on your clothes. You could either make garments look better or ruin them on certain patterns or designs painted on them. The pants themselves are great. While I do like the painted designs, I am a little indifferent on if they make these pants better or worse. Anyhow, this is a very nice style job along with the cool T-shirt. Not crazy of them, but the sandals are pretty good in their own right (better than Birkenstocks!).

  4. Na tebi mi one baš savršeno izgledaju, jedino mi je žao čuti da su se brzo istrošile iako sam upravo nekidan bacila one svoje pepita startasice od prošlog ljeta jer su pukle na prstima (ali sam ih nemilosrdno iznosila pa ne žalim). Moram priznati da će mi ipak malo faliti ove vesele ljetne kombinacije, kod nas je krenula bura i već mi fale moji kratki rukavi, čovjek tako lako zaboravi kako se stan brzo ohladi i pretvori u frižider! :)

  5. I kod mene je zahladilo, gotovo je nošenje sandala, razmišljam o čizmama i ja.
    Zanimljiva mi je ideja oslikavanja odjeće. Mogu se zamislit da tako oslikam neku lanenu košulju ili haljinu za ljeto.

  15. Isn't it sad when you notice that shoes that you love so much start looking worn out? I had a few pairs like that, loved and wore them so much...until they literally fell apart. I remember these pants, such unique pieces one does remember :)

  17. Ma che bella idea che hai avuto a decorare quei pantaloni Ivana, sono venuti benissimo e sono decisamenteun capo unico adesso!
    Bellissima anche la location delle foto, qui a Roma, ad eccezione della mattina e della sera, fa ancora piuttosto caldo quindi penso che sciarpe e giacche non le vedremo ancora per un pò di tempo! ^^
    Baci!

  21. Dear Ivana, I'm also sad that it looks like that for this year we have to say good-bye to our sandals. Nevertheless I try them still to wear when possible but I wore like you also already boots. I'm so impressed how talented you are! What you painted here is true art and I'm absolutely happy you combined it even with the shirt you won. Thank you for sharing and hopefully you will have some more warm days.

  23. Ne sumnjam da su boromine preudobne, a i veoma lepo izgledaju sto im je dodatan plus. Nazalost, cim obucu duze nosimo ume da izgleda staro, ali avaj sta da se radi.
    Kombinacija mi se bas dopada, kako majica sa printom, tako i pantalone savrsenog kroja i oslikane bas umetnicki. Bravo Ivanice :-*

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…
