Red For Spring: How To Style Flare Sleeves With a Mix Print Skirt?


top: old, skirt: modna kuća Edi, heels: peko, bag: old



Hello, how are you? I'm sharing a new outfit with you today. To great this new week, I'm wearing something new and something old (but nothing borrowed). The new item I'm wearing is this beautiful hand made birch tree hair clasp. I'm a big fan of hair clasps, but I've never owned a traditionally made one! I didn't know this until a year or so ago, but birch bark has been used in Russia to make accessories and household items for centuries. I love hand made items, and while you can find traditionally hand made wood items here, I haven't really seen anything similar before because this wood carving technique is unique to Russia. I got this birch tree hair accessory as a gift from a fellow blogger Natalia Lianlina. You can visit her wonderful blog In The Writer's Closet here. I'm not sure can you see the birch tree hair accessory in the photographs because I wore a side braid, but you'll have the chance to have a closer look soon enough.





Zdravo, kako ste? Danas sa vama dijelim novu odjevnu kombinaciju. Za početak novoga tjedna, nosim nešto novo i nešto staro. Nešto novo je ova prekrasna kopča za kosu od brezina drveta. Jako volim ukrase za kosu, ali nisam nikada imala neki tradicionalne izrade. Nisam to ni ja znala do unazad godinu ili dvije, ali brezino drvo se koristi u Rusiji za izradu raznih ukrasa i kućnih potrepština od davnina. Volim ručno rađene predmete i premda se ovdje mogu naći ručni radovi od drveta nisam vidjela ništa slično jer je ova tehnika rezbarenja jedinstvena za Rusiku. Ovo kopču za kosu dobila sam od blogerice Natalie Lianline. Možete posjetiti njen divan blog In The Writer's Closet here. Nisam sigurna možete li vidjeti ovu kopču za kosu od brezina driveta jer sam kosu uplela u pletenicu sa strane, ali imat ćete prilike vidjeti je skoro opet.

Natalia's gifts: birch tree hair accessories, her books and painting supplies



Natalia is really too generous. She also sent me two of her books and a lot of painting supplies. Perfect presents for an art and a book lover. I read these two children's books of hers in a heartbeat and I loved them so much! I wrote a review for one of her books last year (you can read it here). I will do a more detailed review of these books soon. I'll keep you posted.

Natalia je stvaro jako velikodušna. Poslala mi je i dvije svoje knjige i pribor za slikanje. Savršen poklon za ljubitelja umjetnosti i knjiga. Pročitala sam ove njene dvije knjige u tren oka i jako su mi se svidjela. Napisala sam ogled za jednu od njenih knjiga prošle godine (možete ga pročitati ovdje). Napravim ću detaljan ogled ove dvije knjige uskoro. Čitat ćete ga na vrijeme.












Now, a few words about this spring outfit. Red has been trending this Spring. Do you like red? Red is one of my favourite colours. I've had this red top with flare sleeves for ages (worn previously here). I just can't get tired of it. Same goes for this skirt (worn previously here and here). This skirt mixes two of my favourite prints for spring: stripes and floral print. I mean, what is there not to love? Sometimes you find a clothing item that's absolutely you. Do you know what I mean? Speaking of which, if you ever find a mix print skirt, one way to style it is to pick a top in a matching colour (like I have done today).

Besides red, there is another trend I really like and that is mini bags. Do you have a mini bag? Do you plan to buy one? This little brown bag is possibly my favourite one. My bag collection isn't that big actually. I love all the bags I have, though. On overall, I think I'm more of a show lady. What about your bag collection? Are you a shoe or a bag lady? Or perhaps you have a weakness for both? Do tell.

Sada, par riječi o ovoj proljetnoj odjevnoj kombinaciji. Crvena se nosi ovoga proljeća. Volite li vi crvenu? Meni je crvena jedna od omiljenih boja. Imam ovaj crveni top s rukavima zvonastoga kroja već sto godina (nosila sam ga već ovdje) i nikako da mi dosadi. Isto vrijedi za ovu suknju (nosila sam je već ovdje i ovdje). Ova suknja ima dva uzorka koja su mi najdraža u proljeće: pruge i cvjetni uzorak. Kako bi ne bila draga? Ponekad naiđete na neki odjevni komad koji vam jednostavno posve odgovara. Znate li na što mislim? Usput pronađete li nekad suknju mješovitoga uzorka, možete je nositi tako da odaberete majicu u boji koja se slaže sa njom, kao što sam ja danas napravila.

Osim crvene, ima još jedan proljetni trend koji mi se sviđa, a to su male torbice. Imate li malu torbicu? Planirate li ju kupiti? Ova mala smeđa torbica mi je možda i najdraža. Moja kolekcija torba i nije toliko velika. No, volim sve torbice koje imam. Svejedno, recimo da sam više ljubitelj cipela. A vi?  Kakva je vaša kolekcija torbica? Volite li više cipele ili torbice? Ili je možda vaša slabost oboje? Slobodno recite.

  1. Your outfit looks beautiful and very fashionable! I love the bright red colour and flare sleeves of your top complemented by the bright blue frames of your sunnies. I also love the print and border at the hem of your skirt and the contrast with your black hosiery. I was unfamiliar with the birch bark hair clasps, but They appear to hold your hair well - very useful in the sometimes very windy days in Spring. Your outfit looks very pretty, and you look fabulous wearing it!

  2. I love red lipsticks but wearing red clothes is a little iffy for me. I find it hard to mix and match with red but I adore your outfit here, Ivana.

  7. Welcome Spring! Really like the way you're receiving this new season with the best attitude and an incredible outfit that is full of color and interesting textures. I like these seasons (autumn and spring) because we're able to pull off interesting combinations that are almost impossible to create when we are cold or when it is too hot outside! And congrats for sharing the work of some bloggers and creators around the blogosphere, it is always good to spot new talent around :D

    Have a great day ahead Ivana!

  14. You look gorgeous in red!! The blouse is beautiful, and I just love the pairing with this skirt - I can definitely see folklore motifs in this outfit! A birch bark accessory is perfect for this beautiful ensemble! I am glad you enjoy my presents - that's what they are for, have fun and enjoy, dearest friend! Lots of love!

  15. I actually didn't know that red was trending for Spring. I don't wear it much but it's a color that makes me happy since red symbolizes happiness or good luck in the Chinese culture. This outfit is so feminine and chic!

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.

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…

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…

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…
