Gothic Valentine's day illustrations 

 Valentine's day is here soon, so here are some fashion illustration inspired by the most romantic day in the year. Do you have any plans? Do you celebrate this day? For me it is not much different then any other day. I'll probably just prepare something nice (don't I do that every day?) for lunch and dinner (as my husband cannot leave home for the next month or so so we won't go out this year).  For me Valentine's day is not a big deal, but just another excuse to feel festive. One thing I have to admit is that I always have a hard time picking the right present for my significant other. Usually I go for a perfume, but this year I should really think of something else. Do you think it is harder to buy a present for a guy? One present that I think can work well for either gender is just a simple Valentine's card. Making something yourself is also a good way to show someone how special they are as it proves you have really put some time and effort into it. Why don't you make your own Valentine's card? A bit of cartoon or paper is all you need. Draw something on it or just print some picture or illustration you like, you can use one of mine if you want;) 

Uskoro je Valentinovo, ma evo malo modnih ilustracija nadahnutih danom zaljubljenih ili kako ga još zovu najromantičnijim danom u godini. Imate li kakvih planova? Slavite li ovaj dan? Za mene nije nešto različitih od drugih dana. Vjerovatno ću pripremiti nešto lijepo (zar to ne radim svakog dana) za ručak i večeru mužu (jer ne može vani pa ćemo jesti doma). Za mene Valentinovo nije velika stvar, već samo još jedna izlika za blagdansko raspoloženje. Ipak moram priznati da mi je teško izabratu pravi poklon za moju drugu polovicu. Obično kupim parfem, ali ove godine moram smisliti nešto drugo. Mislite li da je teže kupiti poklon za muškarca? Jedan poklon koji je mislim prikladan za oba spola je jednostavna čestitka za Valentinovo. Napraviti nešto sam je isto dobar način da pokažete nekome kako je poseban jer pokazuje da ste uložili vrijeme i trud u poklon. Zašto ne biste sami izradili čestitku za Valentinovo? Malo kartona ili papira je sve što vam treba, nacrtajte nešto ili isprintajte neki motiv koji vam se sviđa (možete iskoristiti i neku od mojih ilustracija;)

  6. Ajme kako ja ne volim to Valentinovo, dečko i ja ga uvijek ignoriramo tako da kod nas nema nikakvih čokoladica, srca ili čestitki na taj dan, naprosto se ponašamo kao da je u pitanju najobičniji dan u tjednu :)

    1. Ja ne volim kad ispadne da za taj dan treba raditi tko zna šta, pa ljude uhvati neka potrošačka groznica i grozničavo planiranje, a zapravo dan kao i svaki drugi.

  7. Mnogo je slatko. Podseća me na neku knjigu ilustracija, zapravo bilo bi savršeno kad bi mogla da spojiš sve svoje ilustarcije na jedno mesto :)
    Meni je taj praznik poprilično nebitan, lepe stvari treba priređivati svakog dana, ali dobro, nije na odmet podsetiti se i na taj način da treba da slavimo ljubav i osobu koja je uz nas... :)

  8. konkretno ove ilustracije i jesu na jednom mjestu, na poleđini stranica jednog starog seminarskog, ali znam što misliš:) Planiram ih nekako organizirati. I ja imam isto mišljenje o Valentinovu, lijepo je nešto lijepo učiniti za nekoga koga voliš, ali nemam nekakvih velikih romantičnih očekivanja za taj dan.

  10. Like Lilli told you, this post is the most personal and romantic post I have seen too. In Romania we don't celebrate this as a tradition, we have something similar 10 days later, named Dragobete. Tomorrow or else I don't make expensive gifts with my husband, just romantic gestures, delicious food.
    Have a wonderful day tomorrow!

  13. Ako smem da primetim, sve si bolja i bolja u ovome. Ostavi skice, mogu jednog dana da se lepo upotrebe. Šta misliš o detaljima na obući, recimo?

    1. Hvala ti. Super su mi detalji na obući, znalo mi se dogoditi da kupim cipele jer mi je neka mašnica bila toliko slatka:) a dvije sam kožne mašne preselila sa cipela na kapu kad su mi cipele postale iznošene. Sa drugog para cipela kožna mašne sam preselila na jedan kaiš.

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…

Fashion illustrations of the day (markers)

Hello darlings! How are you? Can you believe that February ends today? This month has just flown by. I know it's the shortest month in the year but still. Today I'm going to share 3 fashion illustrations and sketches with you. The medium for all of them is marker on paper. I don't work with markers that often, but sometimes it is good to try something different. The fashion sketches I'm sharing are all about 3 colours: purple, green and red. Spring is in the air, so this is my reflection on all those trends for the new season. The first illustration shows a girl wearing a purple and blue jumpsuit. The second illustration features a girl wearing a transparent green dress with a top and a skirt under that dress. The third illustration shows two girls in red gowns.
