Fashion illustration Friday/ Modna ilustracija petkom

As one of the illustrations is showing, it is raining. Is the spring fashionably late? or just too late? What is your opinion? The other illustrations are inspired by vintage style, especially this car that just scream Gatsby to me. I'm not quite sure is it an actual model from the infamous Jazz age ( I was inspired by a random photo) but it looks like it is.

Lipi moji, danas sam ispekla pet, šest pita (krompirača, sirnica itd), a kiša pada i pada. Dijelim neke svoje ilustracije. Neke su nadahnute starinskim stilom, kao ovaj autić gore, a neke su komentar na kašnjenje proljeća. Je li proljeće zakasnilo ukosno ili neukusno? Što vi mislite?


  1. Ti si jedna jako kreativna dama... odlicne ilustracije... auto me apsolutno odusevio :-) i ovdje kisi i kisi :(

  2. Daj šalji jednu pitu ovamo :))
    Ovo proljeće je već a bitch, pojavi se i odmah nestane, poludjet ću više od kiša i vjetra :)

  3. Bellissime le tue illustrazioni, piove anche qui!

  9. Nice illustrations!

    best, zia

  10. Ivana tu hai un grande talento, brava! Mi piace tantissimo quello che ritrae la ragazza con maglia e berretto rosso.
    Io nel disegno sono proprio negata purtroppo...

  11. These are wonderful! Love the Great Gatsby!! I want to thank you so much for your marvellous comment on my blog...I really appreciate it and I understand what you say so well!! I think too, that if I say I'm a feminist, I should be dressing more like a boy and not like pretty things or dresses! I agree that it's the one thing they have wrong, instead of shunning the very essence of being a woman...we should be celebrating it and enjoying ourselves & dressing as we want, because we have that right! I'm far from the Carrie in Sex & The City type as well...women from long ago have taught us many things to be proud of and celebrate & we should rejoice in that & not want to hide it and become like men...we can surpass men and look great doing it in our dresses, skirts or whatever we choose to wear!! So happy for your comment & I appreciate it so so much!! Thank you :)))) I wish you a wonderful weekend <3

    1. I agree with you:) we should celebrate our gender and everyone should be free to be dressed however he or she likes.

  12. Dear Ivana, did you make this wonderful drawings? I´m impressed -you have really many skills!

    I don´t think that this year spring is absolutely late, although I remember some years when it was warm in February or March and I have worn shorts. But for example 2012, when I started my new Job on April the 16th, it was cold, too, because I remember that I have worn boots, winter blazer and a scarf ...

    But to be honest I believe that this year especially in Bavaria the summer wouldn´t become absolutely hot because in the mountains there is so many snow it it will take a lot of time until the snow melts! And during there is snow we have always an very icy wind.

    Wish you a great weekend, dear friend!

  13. Wow, sei davvero brava!!!

  14. Not in Greece. In a few days we will wear our bikinis and we will go swimming.
    Best Regards

  16. Nice illustrations. Great 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.

My fashion illustration of the day + book review / Moja modna ilustracija dana + ogled knjige ( Le Diable au corps) 6.12.2016

This morning I read an amazing novel. Le Diable au corps (translated as The Devil In the Flesh) is a novel by Raymond Radiquet. Believe it or not, this was by first book by this French writer. I don't think I even heard of him before, which is odd, but well, it happens. In his time, Raymond was quite a celebrity and he is still considered as one of the important French writers of that period. Did I like this novel? Quite frankly, I loved it. I just couldn't put this novel down. I must have read it an hour or so. I got up a bit more earlier this morning so I actually had time to read it with my morning coffee (it is not a very long novel but still it is amazing how easy it was to find one's self glued to those pages). Perhaps I should make it a habit, getting up more early so I can read more. 
Jutros sam pročitala divan roman. Đavo u tijelu  (naslov izvornika Le Diable au corps) je roman Raymonda Radiqueta. Vjerovali ili ne, ovo je moj prvi roman ovoga pisca. Mislim da nika…

Lado (drawing of the day/ crtež dana)

Hello everyone! Have I ever talked to you about my love for folklore? I've always been keen on exploring folklore dresses and costumes, mostly because I find them to be very inspirational. In my view, folklore is one of the best fashion inspiration out there. The diversity and the beauty of international folklore dresses and costumes is enough to leave anyone impressed. Here I illustrated one of Croatian national costumes ( we have a lot of them), worn by Croatian national folklore dance ensemble Lado. As a reference for this drawing, I used a photograph from Lado's official catalog. The medium is coloured pencils on papers.
Zdravo svima! Jesam li sa vama ikada pričala o svojoj ljubavi  prema folkloru? Uvijek sam voljela istraživati folklorne nošnje i kostime, većinom zato jer su mi toliko nadahnjujući. Po mome mišljenu, folklor je jedno od najboljih modnih nadahnuća koji postoji. Raznolikost i ljepota međunarodnih folklornih nošnji i kostima je dovoljna da svakoga ostavi zadi…

Diane Von Furstenberg Resort 2018 ( fashion illustration of the day/ modna ilustracija dana )

I know what you're thinking. It's Summer, how can you think about coats? Well, I can. The sweat is literally dripping down by forehead, but I'm going to share an illustration inspired by Diane Von Furstenberg's 2018 Resort collection. It is always good to look forward to something, right? I'm pretty sure that a lot of ladies are looking forward to this collection hitting the stores this November. What I personally find so irresistible about it are- the colours. I'm very keen on bold colours and patterns, so no wonder this collection caught my eye.
Znam što mislite. Ljeto je, kako možeš razmišljati o kaputima? Jednostavno mogu. Znoj mi kapa niz čelo, ali ipak ću podijelit modnu ilustraciju nadahnutu kolekcijom Diane Von Furstenberg za 2018. godinu. Sigurna sam da će se puno dama razveseliti kada ova kolekcija stigne u trgovine u studenom. Ono što je meni osobno tako neodoljivo kod ove kolekcije su- boje. Jako volim žarke boje i uzorke, tako da nije nimalo neobič…
