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!

RED ACCENTS FOR WINTER (LUNAR YEAR OUTFIT IDEAS)

For me, the red is the colour of love, good luck and passion. With Lunar Year Festivities and Valentine's Day being just around the corner, it is the perfect time to start embracing and wearing red. How to wear red in the winter? Now, it doesn't have to be a red from head to toe outfit. If you're not confident enough to rock the all red look or you don't want to invest into red clothing items, you can always start small and opt for red accessories such as scarves, leggings/tights, hats, bags, shoes and etc. Moreover, you can embrace red with your beauty options. The bold red lip look will never get old. A nice red manicure is always a classic. If you're bold enough, you can even try embracing the red eye-shadow trend.  HOW TO WEAR RED ACCENTS IN WINTER?

10 STYLE LESSONS LEARNED FROM MALENA/ MONICA BELLUCCI

With summer being in full spring, I caught myself thinking about iconic summer outfits. Do you know what came to my mind? Costumes/outfits worn by Monica Belluci when she played Malena Scordia in an iconic Italian movie set on Sicily.  The costumes for that movie were designed by an acclaimed Italian costume designer Maurizio Millenotti and he outdone himself! Seeing that Malena is a historical movie, Maurizio choose quite timeless outfits and cuts that will ever go out of style. That fact makes Malena movie the perfect place to look for inspiration! Moreover, I feel that Monica Belluci's personal style is quite similar to Malena's (i.e. to the style of the character she is playing). There is definitely a Mediterranean lady feel about Malena/Monica Bellucci. What says summer better than Mediterranean and Sicily? Today we'll analyze Malena's style and see what we can learn from her. There is much to learn! Having analyzed looks that Monica wore in iconic Malena film, I…

HOW TO STYLE A BROWN FAUX LEATHER COAT?

Today I'll show you a couple of ways to start a brown faux leather/ faux fur coat. We'll start with a more dressed up version. Now, this brown coat comes with a faux fur hoodie and that gives it more of a casual vibe, similar to that of a parka jacket. So, I decided to dressed it up with accessories (always the best way to dress up an item). I paired this coat with predominately black accessories: a pair of stilettos, a bag, a pair of earrings and a headband. I also wore a statement necklace. The dress I was wearing under the coat was a simple grey dress (bought at Terranova some time ago), so I wasn't afraid to pile on the accessories.  Scroll down to see and read more.  DIY HEADBAND PROJECT: HOW I HAND SEWED THE FLORAL APPLICATIONS You already had the chance of seeing this DIY headband many times, but it's been a whole since I showed you how I actually made it.
