How to spice up an outfit with a scarf? (...and revisiting Medugorje) Kako začiniti odjevnu kombinaciju s rubcem? (...i ponovni posjet Međugorju)

Medjugorje in Herzegovina, a little village, but visited by millions every year. We're there fairly often, sometimes as much as a few times a month. In immediate vicinity of the church in Medjugorje you can find this little ethno village that still isn't open for business but you can visit it anyway, just to admire it---as we did last week! It is close to our friend's place. The first time my husband was here was quite a long time ago, when our friends (the one I just mentioned) decided to have their wedding photos taken here. My husband was also there for that photoshot, being the best man and all. Since then this place has often been our stop. It is still under contructions (more than four years and counting) but its grows more beautiful with every visit of ours.  Read about my previous visits:  here (2016), here (2015),  here (2014), here (2013). It is in this location that I shoot my post about different ways to wear a scarf (here) and today I will show you another trick. In post I will wear a scarf both around my neck and around my waist. You may have noticed that I like wearing scarves as belts. Scarves and foulards are the perfect accessories, aren't they? I always felt like they can spice up any old outfit. How do you like my styling? I've had this green dress forever, but I never seem to get tired of wearing it. This outfit has one DIY element, can you guess what it is?

Međugorje u Hercegovini, maleno selo, ali posjećuju ga milijuni svake godine. Mi smo tamo dosta često, ponekad nekoliko puta mjesečno. U blizini crkve u Međugorju možete pronaći ovo malo etno selo koje još nije otvoreno za noćenje, ali ga svejedno možete posjetiti da biste mu se divili- kao što smo mi učinili prošloga tjedna. Blizu  je kuće naših prijatelja. Prvi put kada je moj muž bio ovdje je bilo prije dosta dugo, kada su se naši prijatelji, ti koje sam spomenula, tu slikali za vjenčanje, a moj muž je bio s njima jer im je bio kum. Otada je ovo mjesto naše stajalište. Još je pod izgradnjom (već više od četiri godine). U engleskome dijelu teksta možete pronaći moje poveznice za prijašnje objave, a na ovoj lokaciji sam snimila i objavu o različitim načina na koje se može nositi rubac. Prikladno, jer danas ću nositi rubac i oko vrata i oko struka. Možda ste primijetili kako volim nositi rupce kao remene. Marame ili rupci, to dvoje je savršeni modni dodatak, zar ne? Uvijek sam imala osjećaj da svaku kombinaciju mogu osvježiti. Kako vam se sviđa ova kombinacija? Imam ovu zelenu haljinu već sto godina i nikako da mi dosadi. Ima malo i moga rada u ovoj odjevnoj kombinaciji, što mislite o čemu se radi?

  18. Prekrasno mesto, idealno za fotografisanje! Mnogo mi se dopada haljinica, obozavam ovu tamnu nijansu zelene boje, a lepo si je i uklopila sa maramom. Uvek das kombinaciji neki svoj licni pecat i to mi se upravo i dopada :-*

  21. Kakvo savršeno mesto! :) ne mogu da mu se nadivim. baš me ne čudi što su se vaši prijatelji slikali tamo, verujem da su im fotografije savršene u takvom abijentu. Tvoje gledam već nekoliko puta i nemam reči koliko je svaki detalj divan. Plus ti tako prelepa u toj damskoj kombinaciji :) Marama je baš osvežila tamniji kolorit i uopšte me čudi što ih toliko voliš. Stvarno su kao stvorene za eksperimentisanje, a mogućnosti je bezbroj :)

  22. you look really, really fab my dear! i LOVE scarfs too. they are such a cool accessory for every kind of clothing stuff. i like the scarf that you wear - this colourmix is a nice one.

    and your white nail polish is such an eyecatcher: bright and good looking. and yes, i see your very special unique tights again. this idea to wear an opaque tights to this outfit is: 2 thumbs up...;-)

    great post Ivana!

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…
