Using acrylic paint to paint on shoes (+OFTD) / Korištenje akrilnih boja za slikanje na cipelama ( i odjevna kombinacija dana)

Remember that DIY project I have recently blogged about here? Well, those boots aren't the only thing I decided to paint with Bleu di Prussia (Prussian blue) acrylic colour. In fact, I also painted one pair of high heels. This pair had a snake print that I decided to keep. So, what I did was to apply only one layer of acrylic paint. In this way, I managed to preserve the original print, I just made it less fleshy and obvious. Before you scroll down to see the photographs of today's outfit, let me just inform you about the location of this outfit post. It is Rodoc, a place that could be described as suburbs of Mostar city. A lovely place. There is one restaurant there I like but I will talk about that some other time.

Sjećate se onoga DIY projekta o kojem sam nedavno pisala ovdje? Te čizme nisu bile jednina stvar koju sam odlučila obojati s prusko plavom akrilnom bojom. Zapravo, obojala sam i još jedan par visokih peta. Taj je par imao zmijski uzorak koji sam odlučila zadržati.  Ono što sam napravila bilo je da sam stavila  jedan sloj akrilnih boja. Na ovaj način, uspjela sam sačuvati prijašnji uzorak, samo sam ga napravila manje uočljivim i glasnim. Prije nego što pogledate fotografije da vidite ovu odjevnu kombinaciju, napisat ću samo o kojem ba kojem su mjestu snimane fotografije. To je Rodoč, koji mi se mogao opisati i kao predgrađe Mostara. Lijepo mjesto. Tamo ima jedan restoran koji mi se sviđa, ali o tome neki drugi put.

I do like how these shoes turned out. I decided to wear them in a feminine outfit that was all about neutral and warm colours. I felt like it was best to make the outfit as elegant as possible, yet I choose to wear a big tote bag. Why? Well, lately I developed a passion for tote bags. They're so practical, aren't they? If you choose one in fake leather, then they can be quite light. For example, this bag I'm wearing weights practically nothing. I'm sure you noticed by now that I'm not exactly a bag lady. I do have a weakness for caramel bags. I feel like they go well with everything.

Sviđa mi se kako su ispale ove cipele. Odlučila sam ih nositi u ženstvenoj kombinaciji koja se temeljila na neutralnim i toplim bojama. Činilo mi je da je najbolje napraviti odjevnu kombinaciju što ženstvenijom, ali sam ipak odlučila nositi veliku i široku torbu. Zašto? Pa u zadnje vrijeme sam razvila strast prema takozvanim tote torbama. Tako su praktične, zar ne? Ako odaberete onu od eko kože, onda mogu biti i jako lagane. Naprimjer ova torba koju nosim nije nimalo teško. Sigurna sam da ste primijetili da i nisam nešto posebno luda za torbama. No, volim torbe u boji karamele. Čini mi se da se dobro slažu sa svime.

  1. You're amazing, Ivana! You've so many tricks up in your sleeves. Hahaha! Love them all, dear! xoxo

  2. This is a fun idea and DIY for refreshing any old shoes sitting unworn in your wardrobe! It must have been quite fun to do too - and I'd imagine the acrylic would be quick to dry in the gorgeous weather you enjoy over there!! :)

    1. yes, it was a fun thing to do and it doesn't require much time. Acrylics always dry quickly...and in our climate, they dry super fast:)

    1. hvala ti, ova ogrlica mi je baš super:)
      i meni su prehrambeni proizvodi važna stavka, a u ovakve torbe uguram nekad cijelu spizu:)

  25. Very nice and comfy outfit dear!!! This colors really suit you:-) You look so stylish and elegant Ivana! The shoes are really cool.

  26. Nice way to change the look of a pair of shoes - and you can still see some of the original detail show through, so you don't lose the print entirely! :) Lovely outfit as well - the pencil skirt would make this perfect for the office, as would the big tote bag. I always like to take big bags to work!

    Hope you are having a lovely start to the week so far.

    1. Big bags are really practical, aren't they?

  27. Looking very classy and elegant, Ivana! Great diy project as well!!!

  28. Dearest Ivana,
    you make me happy because I'm not any more the only woman in the bloggerworld who paints her shoes with acrylic colors. In the office where I work zhe collegues look a bit irritated when they see my DIY-shoes (I've red and blue boots and green shoes that I pimped up with Napkin-Decoupage ;-)) They cann't believe it...
    Your shoes and your whole outfit look great and I love your chain!
    Lots of hugs, Traude

    1. I was planning to try the napkin decoupage on my shoes too!

  29. PS: On 15th April there is my new ANL-Linkup - please could you link your DIY-shoes there?

  30. What a pretty location! Oh YES, I definitely prefer the shoes post transformation!

  31. Sjajno ti stoji ovaj ženstven stil, baš si zgodnica. Posebno mi se dopadaju pencil suknja i ova prekrasna tirkizna ogrlica.
    Bravo za cipelice,odlično izgledaju!

  32. your project looks interesting. i love your shoes - high heels rules...;-)

    i love also your outfit - very chic my dear. i like the combo of black skirt and bright blazer - this is a classic combo - i wear that very often too. and your necklace is a real beauty!!!

    you are a star if you take a walk outside - so cool!


  33. You are very elegant dear Ivana, I really love your skirt and your jacket is beautiful. Kisses :)

  34. Shoes too? How exciting! You look very graceful and ladylike in your outfit, Ivana :) I will try on the vase and then attack my shoes, heheh. Thank you so much for inspiring me :D x

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…


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…


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…
