I've just now realized that most of my fashion illustrations have some kind of hill in the back. It is an interesting coincidence that both of the cities where I have lived for most of my life, Split (where I was born and raised) and Mostar (where I have spend my student years) have a dormant vulcano i.e. a hill that is clearly visible from almost every spot in the town. I suppose that got translated in my illustrations as well. As far as the outfit on the illustration goes, it's an rather simple one.

I cannot thank you enough for all of your lovely comments, they do make me feel better whenever I feel blue...and my heart goes out to all the flood victims. I hope they know they're in our heart.

Shvatih da većina mojih ilustracija ima nekakvo brdo u pozadini. Zanimljiva je podudarnost da oba grada u kojima sam živjela duže vrijeme, Split u kojem sam rođena i odrasla i Mostar u kojem sam provela studentske dane, imaju ugasli vulkan tj. brdo koje je jasno vidi sa skoro svakog mjesta u gradu. Pretpostavljam da je tako i završilo u mojoj ilustraciji.

Hvala svima na divnim komentarima, uvijek me razvedre kad god sam tužna...i suosjećam sa svim žrtvama poplava. Nadam se da znaju da su nam u srcima.

  6. This is a lovely illustration! I love it when you share your drawings with us. I especially dig the little backdrop you added to give us a sense of location and grounding. Keep on drawing!

How to style a gold metallic dress for transitional weather? Today I have an outfit proposal that answers that question. I styled my metallic wrap dress with brown boots, a white and brown bag and a tartan blazer. The blazer has some gold treads so I thought it would be a good match for the dress. Besides, I like the idea of pairing a metallic dress with tartan. It looks more interesting that way. I was never one to shy away from patterns. This outfit can be worn both as everyday and night wear. The golden touches make this outfit look more dressed up, and heelless boots make it appropriate for day wear. If you want to glam an outfit like this one, all you need is a pair of high heels. 
Metallic dress looks more tricky than it really is. Styling a metallic dress, for example, isn't that hard. As always look for colours and tones that suit your skin tone. Pair your metallic item with other items you like to wear or go for a full metallic look.  If you don't feel comfortable en…


Early Spring. The air itself smells of flowers in blossom. The sun is shining but it's not too warm. I love this time of year. I love to see the nature come alive and admire the almond trees in blossom. Early spring is possibly the best time to visit Mostar city. What can I say about Mostar that I haven't said already? It truly is a beautiful city, especially this time of year when it is so green. The most wonderful thing about Mostar is perhaps the river it is known for- river Neretva. Wonder the banks of Neretva river and you'll feel you'll entered a magical world. It is amazing to find such stunning natural beauty within a city. However, this city can boost of other rivers as well such as Radobolja. No wonder that it is known as the city of bridges. 
The outfit proposal I'm sharing today is fairly simple. I've taken to wearing hats lately, mostly because the sun here is so strong. Spring sun can be misleading. You may not feel the sun rays  as intensely bec…


One of more puzzling trends for Spring must be: the bath robe trend. It exists in many shapes and forms. Just like regular bath robes, these coats are made of different materials and come in different styles. Bath robe coats can give different vibes, from luxurious to relaxed ones. These bath robe coats sometimes come in silk and satin, while at other times they are made of wool or cotton. There was some confusion when the bath robe coat first appeared on the runaway. It was actually a few years ago, this is not the first season that it was introduced. However, this season we're seeing it around quite a bit, with a lot of celebrities choosing to wear this trend.

What to make of this trend? Will the bath robe trend become the new trench coat? It is hard to say. Nevertheless, it is easy to see the appeal of the bath robe trend. Coats cuts in this style are typically very cozy and comfy. If they are made from warmer materials, they make for perfect transitional pieces.  If you'r…
