Purple/ Ljubičasta (fashion illustration/ modna ilustracija)

I think this is the longest I have ever gone without posting anything. Ever since I started my blog, I've been posting very frequently.  I had a lot of posts prepared ( I always do) but I don't like posting when I don't have the time and energy to visit other blogs (and this flu really got to me). I don't see the point in posting if I know I won't be able to answer the comments. I'm not saying that is the right way, but it is my way.  I've been thinking about blogging lately and I think that following other blogs might be enough for me. I have more than a hundred already written posts, but I'm not sure do I have the need the post them. Maybe it means that it is time to let go of this little place of my own. Perhaps retiring is not a bad idea. I'll figure it out. In the meantime, I'm sharing this fashion illustration with you. I illustrated an all purple outfit, very feminine and if I can add quite Spring appropriate. Medium is watercolour on paper (I did a sketch in pencil before applying watercolours). I didn't use a reference for this girl, I was inspired (as often) by more than one person. Landscape is typical for my illustrations, I think that my need to always have a hill in the background has to do with the cities I live in. As for the outfit, it is something I would love to wear myself. Another thing.... I have always loved purple.

Mislim da je ovo najdalje što nisam objavljivala od kada sam započela ovaj blog. Od samoga početka bloga objavljivala sam jako često. Imala sam jako puno (kao i uvijek) objava u pripremi, ali ne volim objavljivati kada nemam vremena i energije za posjetiti druge blogove ( ova gripa me baš umorila). Ne vidim smisla u objavljivanju ako znam da neću imati vremena odgovoriti na komentare. Ne kažem da to treba tako biti, ali to je moj način.  Razmišljala sam o svemu tomu i mislim da je možda praćenje drugih blogova za mene sasvim dovoljno. Imam više od stotinu već napisanih i pripremljenih objava, ali nisam sigurna da ih imam potrebu objaviti. Možda to znači da je vrijeme da ga pustim. Možda je vrijeme za mirovinu. Razmislit ću. Vrijeme će pokazati.  U međuvremenu, dijelim ovu modnu ilustraciju sa vama. Ilustrirala sam posve ljubičastu kombinaciju, jako ženstvenu i ako mogu dodati baš prikladnu za proljeće. Koristila sam olovku za skicu i vodene boje za popunjavanje ilustracije, a radila sam na papiru. Krajolik je tipičan za moje ilustracije, mislim da se moja potreba za brdom u pozadini može povezati s gradovima u kojima živim. Nisam koristila neku fotografiju ili slično kao referencu za djevojku, nadahnulo me (kao često) više osoba. Što se tiče same odjevne kombinacije, to je nešto što bi i sama voljela nositi. Još nešto...uvijek sam voljela ljubičastu.

My fashion illustration of the day (minimalism)/ Moja modna ilustracija dana (minimalizam)











my fashion illustration/ moja modna ilustracija




Today I'm sharing with you my fashion illustration. The medium is pencil and watercolour on paper. I already shared this illustration on my instagram but here you can see it in better quality. This illustrated outfit is quite minimalistic. It consists of a pair of pants, a shirt, a pair of sandals with high heels and a simple bag.. The only accessory is a necklace.  It is an outfit very appropriate for Spring. As much as I love colour, often I feel drawn to minimalism. More often than not, I feel  very inspired by  minimalist and basic outfits, even if I don't wear them often myself. I think the best thing about fashion is that we can find so many different styles we can admired and be inspired by. Even if some style isn't our cup of tea, we can still be inspired by it. Isn't that really lovely?

Danas s vama dijelim svoju modnu ilustraciju. Medij je olovka i vodene boje na papiru. Već sam ovu ilustraciju podijelila na svom instagramu, ali ovdje je možete vidjeti u boljoj kvaliteti. Ova kombinacija koju sam ilustrirala je poprilično minimalistična, a sastoji se od para hlača, košulje, jednostavne torbe i sandala s visokom petom. Jedini modni dodatak je ogrlica. Ova je odjevna kombinacija jako prikladna za proljeće. Koliko god voljela boju, često me privlači minimalizam. Često sam jako nadahnuta minimalističkim i jednostavnim odjevnim kombinacijama, čak i ako ih sama ne nosim tako često. Mislim da je najbolja stvar kod mode to što možemo pronaći toliko različitih stilova kojima se možemo diviti i koji nas mogu nadahnuti. Čak i ako neki stil nije nešto što bi sami nosili, još uvijek nam može biti nadahnuće. Zar to nije divno?

Taking a stroll in Čapljina / Šetnja Čapljinom

Another day, another city. This time I'm presenting a little city in Herzegovina. You can  see my previous posts from Čapljina here, here and here . As I said many times, it is a perfect town to take a stroll in. It is very pedestrian friendly and quite neat as well. Now, let's talk about clothes. No, let's talk about one clothing item in particualar. Her majesty the leather jacket. It can make you feel bold in a matter of second. Have you found the one yet? My favourite one is this old thing, about the same age as myself but it almost looks brand new. There are many ways to wear a leather jacket. What is your favourite one?

Novi dan, novi grad. Ovaj put predstavljam gradić u Hercegovini. Možete vidjeti neke moje prijašnje objave iz Čapljine tu, tu i tu. Kao što sam rekla puno puta, to je savršen grad za šetnju. Prikladan je za pješake i jako je uredan. Sada, idemo malo pričati o odjeći. Točnije, o jednom odjevnom predmetu posebno. Njeno veličanstvo kožna jakna. Može učiniti da je osjećate odvažno u nekoliko sekundi. Jeste li još pronašli svoju idealnu? Moja najdraža  je ova starudija koja je stara kao i ja, ali skoro pa izgleda kao skroz nova. Postoji puno načina na koje se može nositi kožna jakna. Koji je vaš najdraži?

Makarska

Makarska. Many have fallen in love with this little Croatian town. While I was there, witnessing a spectacular battle between rain and sunshine (sunshine won in case you're wondering), I could certainly see why. This little seacost town has it all. It is a truly beautiful place, surrounded by stunning Biokovo mountain from one side and magical Adriatic sea from another. One can easily  see why it is one of the most popular tourist destinations. This time I only took photographs of the promenade, but if you want to see photographs of the mountain, you can do so here.

Makarska. Puno njih se zaljubilo u ovaj hrvatski gradić. Dok sam bila tamo i nazočila spektakularnoj borbi između kiše i sunca ( sunce je pobijedilo u slučaju da vas zanima), mogla sam vidjeti i zašto. Ovaj priobalni gradić ima sve. Stvarno je prekrasno mjesto. Lako je vidjeti zašto je jedno od najpopularnijih turističkih odredišta. Ovaj put sam uslikala samo rivu, ali ako želite vidjeti planinski pogled, možete pogledati ovdje.

Red accents/ Crveni naglasci


 I don't know why but wearing ripped jeans always makes me feel quite fabulous. Now, if you add some red accents, some bohemian touches and some faux fur into the mix, then you end up with what is essentially a 'feel good' outfit. It is all of my favourite decades (sixties, seventies and nineties) rolled up into one. It is the kind of outfit I feel best in. This is what I would call urban glam. It is a casual combo, but very far from being boring. That's my sentiment about it anyway.

Ne znam zašto, ali nošenje iskidanih traperica uvijek učini da se osjećam poprilično fantastično. Dodate li tome crvene naglaske, malo boemskoga štiha i malo eko krzna, onda završite s nečim u čemu se osjećate jako dobro. To je nešto kao sva moja omiljena desetljeća (šezdesete, sedamdesete i devedesete) u jednom. To je onakva kombinacija u kojoj se najbolje osjećam. Ovo je ono što bi nazvala urbanim glamurom. Ležerno je, ali opet sve samo ne dosadno. Barem ja tako mislim.
