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:)

  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.

  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

A few posts ago (yes, bloggers calculate time in post activity), I wrote about red accessories for winter but I also wanted to write about red clothing items you can wear this time of year. In fact, I was planning to write a big post about wearing red in winter but I realized that I need to split it in two because it was too long. Apparently, I have a lot to say about why wearing red in winter is a good idea. So, today I'll basically post the part two of my red in winter fashion musings. Red is a bold, energetic and dramatic colour. If you ask me, wearing red is a great way to invoke good luck in our new year. You can pair red with neutral colours to tone it down or with vibrant ones to make your outfits even more noticeable. Lunar Year festivities are a perfect time to embrace the red clothing items. Moreover, Valentine's Day is not too far off either. If you're looking for some winter red outfit inspiration, you have come to the right place. HOW TO WEAR RED IN WINTER?   My…


Hello dear readers, how's life treating you? It's time for another reading update on my blog. You guys know that I'm a bookworm and a reading addict, right? Today I have a couple of book reviews to share with you. I'll be reviewing four books (more precisely: two novels and two short story collections). It's a mixed crowd of writers that I'm reviewing, from Nobel winning Kazuo Ishiguro to some other well known authors. So, let's get started. Scroll down to read my opinion of these books.  THE BURIED GIANT, A NOVEL BY KAZUO ISHIGURO 5/5 Having seen a fascinating interview with mr. Ishiguro about this very book, I had high expectations for The Buried Giant. I'm happy to report that my expectations were fulfilled. Once again, Kazuo Ishiguro impressed me his subtle and beautiful writing. This novel is a masterpiece. The Buried Giant is very moving tale of an elderly couple in search for their lost past. Axl and Beatrix share a strong connection, but just lik…


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…
