Happy Valentine's Day! (fashion illustration of the day) / Sretno Valentinovo! (modna ilustracija dana)

Personally, I'm a fan of celebrations. Any kind of celebrations. Possibly because celebrations include food. As you can probably tell, I love to eat. I also love to cook. Supposedly, cooking burns a lot of calories. Well, at least I'm spending some of all those calories I consume on every day basis;). Yes, I tend to enjoy my food. This year Valentine's day was the perfect excuse for me to prepare all kinds of sweets and cakes. I'm not sure will I share them here, perhaps tomorrow. Today I'm sharing with you a fashion illustration that is inspired by this day. The girl depicted is wearing a red dress. What is more classic than a red dress for a Valentine's day?  How do you like this dress? The medium is watercolour on paper. 

How will I spend San Valentine's day? Not as planned. My romantic plans about a little getaway didn't work out but at least I still have all those cakes I prepared in advance. That should improve my mood. Plus, I stayed up to 4 a.m. last night reading Isaac Asimov. That will keep me happy for days.  So, what I'm trying to say is that I basically love Saint Valentine's day. Even when I don't celebrate it the ordinary way. What is the ordinary way anyway? I must say I don't get all this negativity about this day. I don't see why I should be obliged to boycott it (as many articles propose we should). Yes, love ought to be celebrated everyday, we all know that. But, isn't it is nice to have a special day just for it? If nothing else, then as an excuse to indulge in sweets. Happy Valentine's Day!

Osobno, ja volim proslave. Bilo kakve proslave. Možda jer proslave obično znače i hranu. Kao što vjerojatno možete i primijetiti, ja uživam u hrani. Volim i kuhati, pa barem tako sagorim nešto od onih kalorija koje unosim u organizam. Da, uživam u hrani. Ove godine za mene je Valentinovo bilo savršena izlika da pripremim svakakve kolače i deserte. Nisam sigurna hoću li ih ovdje podijeliti možda sutra. Danas sa vama dijelim modnu ilustraciju koja je nadahnuta ovim danom. Djevojka koju sam naslikala nosi crvenu haljinu. Što je klasičnije od crvene haljine za Valentinovo? Kako vam se sviđa ova haljina? Medij su vodene boje na papiru. Dodala sam i srca koja sigurno prepoznajete.


Kako ću ja provesti Valentinovo? Ne onako kako sam planirala. Moji romantički planovi o malom izletu su propali, ali barem još uvijek imam sve te kolače koje sam pripremila. To bi mi trebalo popraviti raspoloženje. Osim toga jučer sam do četiti ujutro čitala Isaaca Asimova i to će me vjerovatno držati sretnom danima. U biti ono što želim reči je da volim Valentinovo. Čak i kada ga ne slavim na uobičajen način. Što je uobičajen način ionako? Moram priznati da ne shvaćam negativnost oko ovoga dana. Ne shavaćam zašto bi ga trebala (kao što sve novine predlažu) bojkotirati?   Ljubav treba slaviti svakoga dana. Svi to znamo. No, što nedostaje tome da imamo jedan poseban dan za ljubav? Ako ništa drugo, imamo izliku da uživamo u slatkišima? Sretno Valentinovo!

  7. Like you,I love celebrations, Ivana. Always have and probably always will. It doesn't really matter what kind of celebration it is, it's the mood I love, everyone is in a special mood, trying to make good memories, you know what I mean. Anyway, love the illustration and that dress is perfect for Valentine. So happy Valentine, girl.

  9. Super je ilustracija, nema boljeg od crvene haljine za Valentinovo! :) Žao mi je čuti da je propao izlet, ali budete vi to nadoknadili čim proljeće dođe! Uživaj u kolačima, ja sam pretrpana poslom čitav tjedan tako da uopće ne doživljavam ovaj dan, pogotovo još jer nikada nisam imala taj romantični klik u glavi pa ga zapravo uvijek i preskačem :D

  11. I love how you describe loving all celebrations, I feel the same way! The world is full of so much negativity, that bringing attention to the fun events/celebrations can be a lovely way of counteracting that :) Beautiful red dress illustration; perfectly themed to Valentine's Day - as are the pretty red heart-shaped decorations!

  13. Dear Ivana, the girl and the red dress are so beautiful! Valenntine's day is a day that is very special to me, cause I remember when I was a little girl, and I have 2 brothers, not sisters, my dad always bought 2 presents - one for my mother and one for me, so that I wouldn't feel jealous or sad :) I loved to know that cooking burn calories - cause I love cooking, too! Glad to know that we burn some calories, at least, and then we eat :) Lovely post, dear Ivana, I hope you have a very sweet day today!

    1. that is so sweet. Your dad was a wise man. Thanks for sharing! When I was little, my brother would always buy something for me and my mother for International Women's Day.

  14. Dear Ivana, so sorry your plan for the little getaway didn't work. But I'm convinced what you prepared instead is extremely yummy and I know by my own experience how happy it can make reads nearly until morning how you did.
    Happy Valentine's Day!

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.
