You can keep your hat on (fashion illustration/ modna ilustracija)
kemijska i akrilne boje/ pencil and acrylic paints
Another fashion illustration inspired by summer that is almost here (and not by the song title I've adopted for the post title but I've loved that song ever since the dance scene in 9 1/2 weeks). The outfit I have proposed is a typical summer one...lovely top with stripes and a yellow skirt (a colour that screams summer for me)....an oversize bag for the beach is a must item for summer...and so is the hat. In fact, I think a good summer hat is really an essential summer piece. I didn't use to be so sensitive to the sun, but now that unfortunately I am, I've found that a summer hat really helps me to feel cool and avoid dizziness. I've put a little collage together, just to show you what I mean when I say that I prefer not to leave the house without a straw hat on those extra sunny days....and speaking of summer...what kind of hats do you like? I don't think I've ever spend more than a few euros on a summer hat and they have all served me just fine. It is wonderful how nowadays we have so many options, literally anywhere one can find great selection of hats...So girls, keep your hat on!
Još jedna modna ilustracija nadahnuta ljetom koje je skoro pa stiglo ( i ne naslovom pjesme koji sam navela u naslovu posta, ali doista volim tu pjesmu još otkako sam vidjela plesnu scenu u devet i pol tjedana.) Odjevna kombinaciju koju predlažem je tipična ljetna...divan top na prugice i žuta suknja (prava ljetna boja, zar ne?)...velika torba za plažu je nužna ljeti...a također i šešir. U stvari, mislim da je dobar šešir posve nužan ljeti. Prije nisam bila tako osjetljiva na sunce, ali otkako nažalost jesam, otkrila sam da mi nošenje šešira pomaže da izbjegnem pregrijavanje i ošamućenost. Sastavila sam i jedan mali kolaž, tek toliko da pokažem svoju ljubav prema šeširima ljeti...a govoreći o njima...kakve vi volite? Mislim da nisam nikad potrošila više od dvadesetak kuna na ljetni šešir i dosada su me svi dobro služili. Divno je što imamo toliko izbora, na svakom kutku može se pronaći toliko lijepih modela, tako da stvarno nije teško pronaći prikladan...djevojke, pronađite pravi za sebe i nosite ga.
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…
Is anything as lovely as a sunny spring day? I missed reading outdoors, I can tell you that. Sitting on a bench on a nice spring day, with a nice book in one's lap, now that has to be one of the greatest pleasures in life. Speaking of reading, March has been a good reading month so far. As loyal I am to my favourite writers, I also love to discover new ones. I try to read at least one new author every month. This March I read two American authors for the first time: Kurt Vonnegut and John Green. Naturally I heard about them before. Both of them are quite well know, but this March marked my first introduction to these two. They are not the only 'new' writers I tried this month, but more about that some other time. Earlier this month, I read Kurt's Player Piano and Green's Fault in Our Stars. I liked Player Piano much more that Fault in Our Stars but I was kind of expecting that. I'm happy I read both, though. It is just that Kurt's writing is more my cup of…
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…
