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

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

Are you ready to jump on board the scarf trend? My outfit proposal is all about the foulard. I matched my outfit with the colours of the foulard I was wearing, opting to wear a red blazer, a black pair of cord jeans and a blue turtleneck. It is a simple and comfy styling that made me feel quite chic. It is always good to have an outfit formula to fall back one for those days you don't have much time. One of the easiest ways to elongate your figure is by opting for a pair of high waist jeans and a cropped blazer (or jacket). If you wear a pair of heels with this combo, you'll appear even taller. Not saying that anyone should do that, but if you want to elongate your look, this is a simple and easy way to do it. Blazers and wide cut pants are always a chic combo, and a scarf will add something to every outfit. 

A great thing about a scarf is that it is an accessory that can be worn in a number of ways. I've prepared a little visual guide for you t…


Time for me to cover another Croatian top destination: Trogir. Yes, today I'm taking you to Trogir city. Trogir has one of the best preserved Romanesque- Gothic complexes in Europe. The city can boost with numerous historical landmarks. It has a high concentration of historical churches, towers, structures and a fortress. Literally, every where you look, you'll be beholding history. 
This charming historical city is located on a small island between Croatian coastline and island Čiovo. It is located only 27 kilometers from Split city. Moreover, it's only a five minute drive from the airport Split. In fact, airport Split is closer to Trogir then it is to Split city. If you're visiting this area or landing to Split airport, don't miss  the chance to visit this little city. You won't regret it, I promise. If you want to see how this place looks like in summer time, feel free to visit this Trogir travel post of mine.

What can I say about Trogir that I haven't s…


Good evening lovelies! I've got a couple outfit proposals to share we you. The 'star' of this post is a red midi dress with statement sleeves  I bought last summer. I typically don't do impulse buys, but when I tried on this dress I knew it had to be mine. Have you ever heard of that rule that you shouldn't buy an item if you can't think of at least five ways to wear it? Well, that's a great rule but I decided this dress was worth the buy even if it wasn't the most versatile item. However, now it seems I can think of a five ways to wear it.  Where there is a will there is a way. When I tried this dress on again, I realized that I'll be able to layer it for spring. It needn't be only a summer dress.
1. WITH A VINTAGE HAND PAINTED BLAZER Romantic soul that I am, I simply can't resist a dress that has ruffles. This one has statement sleeves with both ruffles and tassels. It is precisely because of its ruffled statement sleeves that I doubted t…
