Have you ever had your hear broken? (fashion illustration)

Have you ever had your heart broken? I think most of us have had that experience...Not just romantic girly girls (like the one on this illustrations) but practically everyone...and  you can get your heart broken in a number of ways, not just by your love interest but by life itself.

Perhaps we are all more connected by pain then by happiness. No matter what our personal style might be, we have all made mistakes. Perhaps there is a parallel that can be drawn there. No matter how different we might look, dress and act, the things we aspire to, the things we want are quite  often the same....including that little silly little thing called love.

We have all been disappointed. We have all been heart broken. Sometimes we get our heart broken because we mistake one thing from another. Sometimes we do something that we shouldn't have done. Sometimes others wrong us, sometimes we wrong others. From that common experience, we grow and  go on...some with more success, some with less...but we're all in this crazy thing called life together.

  4. Very pretty and true doll...heart break is a part of life and it will happen to us all, but it''s what we do with it that determines how strong we are!! Have a lovely weekend xxx

  5. Slažem se sa svime napisanim :)

  6. Slažem se. Nema osobe kojoj se ne desi tako nešto i po više puta tokom celog života, i u ljubavi i van nje. Ali to je sve ono što nas čini jačim i boljim osobama na kraju...

  7. Hai ragione! Bella anche l'illustrazione!

  8. Ciao Ivana, mi piace tanto quello che hai scritto. Credo che accade a tutti nella vita ma è qualcosa che purtroppo serve per farci anche crescere ed imparare. Il tuo disegno è stupendo!:) Un bacio e buon weekend!:*

  9. We have all had our hearts broken, one way or another!
    Hope everything is alright with you Ivana :)

  11. So beautiful post,i love your draws and your writting!!I hope your heart is full of love and not broken!!many kisses dear!

  12. All of us had such heartbreak experience, for sure. Nevertheless, I'm of the opinion that in most of those situations our broken heart is our own guilt. Nobody else to blame. We often endow our close ones with such charities and features which they don't really posses. So when they act like we have never expected them to act we feel like we've been screwed.
    The drawing is very thematic, it's really great) Looks like your muse is still somewhere by your side:)

    1. I agree....We are all responsible for ourselves...and most often we are the ones that break our own hearts.

  13. what a beautiful and brilliant illustration again.
    yes i agree with you i think you can be heart broken in different ways, and it´s always painful to put the pieces together again, but i think behind everything is some reason, or a lesson to learn. so the most important thing is to go ahead and never loose hope and faith ;)

  14. Oh, yes I did! And I also made already so many mistakes in my life - and today, too ... I hope really that in the end all these things in life make any sense :) I believe that we live because we have something to learn and the life is a kind of a grade of school, and this model helps me often when strange things happen or I did things which I really regret.

    And your drawing is lovely as usual.

    Happy weekend for you!

  15. Nicely written and drawn, xoxo.

  16. Perfect illustration. You are talented :)

Whether you're longing for spring to come asap or not, one thing is certain-  winter is not going  anywhere. The cold weather is not going to end up anytime soon, not in this part of the world. It's snowing in most of Europe and the weather is quite cold. What are we do to if not dress appropriately, and that means dress as warmly as possible? Not long ago I published a post about winter accessories that keep us warm. Today I'll be talking about one of them in particular and that would be the oversized scarf.  I've always loved big scarves and I have quite a few of them, some vintage, some I made myself. Lately, however it occurred to me that I should get one of those new trendy oversized ones, the kind that you can use as blanket. You know how much I love colour, right? Well, beige is no exception so I was happy to see it listed as one of the biggest trends this season. I picked up this beige oversized scarf for next to nothing in New Yorker. It's super cozy and …


Everyone knows that flowers make for a great prop, something very useful in these visual days. Moreover, in this time of social media, we are all looking for good photography props, aren't we? Bloggers, influences and what not, everyone wants to make their photographs pop. Flowers are a great way to do just that. Dried flowers are even better, because you don't have to worry about their expiry date. Dried flowers are also a great way to recycle (when you make your own) and preserve memories. I've been drying flowers for quite some time and there is really nothing to it. You can also buy dried flowers (or even fresh ones if you prefer). They are simply a perfect addition to flat lay photography.
Today I'll speak about creating 3D dresses on fashion illustrations. Now, you don't have to know how to do fashion illustration to try your hand at this. You can trace some of the fashion templates available online (be sure to make sure the author is o.k with that) or you c…


Writing this post took forever, and not just because I'm not exactly sure how many books I read in 2018. I did try to keep a track on goodreads but sometimes I forget to add books that I'm reading there. I'd say that I probably read around 80 books last year, give or take a dozen. I do love to read, as readers of my blog might already know or suspect. Here comes a list of my last year favourites. The list is written in no particular order. The links are not affiliated ( I tried to join Amazon affiliate program in the past but they rejected me saying that my blog doesn't have enough views so yeah it's all regular links). In cases of classics the books are linked to sites such as Project Gutenberg or Oxford University where you can find free copies. In case of modern works, I linked them up to my own blog posts (when relevant), Wikipedia or the authors' sites. 

I had a pretty good reading year, I'd say. Some of the books I read I actually discovered in my ow…
