blue (my fashion illustration) / plava (moja modna ilustracija)

vodene bojice

watercolour


Lately I've been fascinated with maxi dresses. Usually I wear them in Summer, but this Spring I would love to give one a try. I just have to figure out how to style it. Any suggestion?

U zadnje vrijeme sam fascinirana s dugim haljinama. Većinom ih nosim ljeti, ali voljela bi neku nositi i ovog proljeća. Samo još moram smisliti kako to izvesti. Imate li kakav prijedlog?

  3. I'm not very good with maxi dresses, as I'm a petite and if I have to layer jackets, it gets too much. In summer time at the beach I don't mind though ;)

  5. Isti slučaj. Čekam samo malo da otopli i eto me. Uz patike tipa Converse i teksas jaknu, ili uz kožnu jaknu i neke plitke čizmice. Ako je hladnjikavo možeš i helanke ispod ili tanke čarape :)
    Crtež je predivan, ta nijansa plave je prelepa! Samo bih gledala u nju :)

  17. Joj meni je uvijek žao što mi duge haljine čudno stoje, s obzirom da sam sva sitna, samo me progutaju :( Ali zato maxi suknje kombiniram s uskim majicama i to mi je super :D

  23. I just love maxi dresses, I'm not wearing them often, though. Any women wearing maxi dress can look amazing, to my mind. The sketch is also very nice, Ivana! You are true to yourself, your style of painting is inimitable!
    Wish you a wonderful day ahead!

  24. I am not normally a big fan of maxi dresses because I am a big fan of legs :) But I have seen some that are very colorful with nice designs that are pleasing to view. Great job on your art :) xoxo

  28. Beautiful painting, Ivana. I don't like maxi dresses on myself coz they make me look short plus I usually wear maxi dresses with flats. But then again, I have only 1 maxi dress and that's coz it makes me look good. The rest were all given away. I love seeing ladies who carry off maxi dresses well. Do share with us your outfit post on maxi dresses the next time!

  30. Beautiful illustration Ivana! I love the earthy tones.

    Regarding wearing maxi dresses in spring...depending on the temperatures I'd combine a maxi dress with a cute blazer and a scarf. I'm already looking forward to seeing the result :)

  31. You are clearly on a roll with your fab illustrations!
    I often wear a maxi with either a polo neck under or a silk shirt tied at the waist over it - to keep the chilly breezes at bay.

  32. Good illustrations, Ivana. I love maxi dresses too. I normally style them on their own with some simple statement accessories, but if I want to restyle, I either wear a blazer on top or a blouse over it and ofcos with some accessories. It depends where I'm going sometimes. Hope this helps. :))
    Happy Easter!

  38. Dear Ivana, you are definitely tall enough for maxi dresses and I can imagine you would look wonderful in a maxi dress styled e. g. with a scarf or a blouse under the dress! Love your fashion illustration - it reminds me a bit on the fashion which has been worn in the 20s :) Wish you a wonderful and happy Easter time!

  39. Lovely illustrations and I'm 100% with you on appreciating maxi dresses (speaking as someone who's just bought another one today haha). I'd suggest a pair of block heel sandals, a gold cuff worn on the wrist or upper-arm just above the elbow and perhaps hair worn down and wavy! :)

Wearing the First Dress I Ever Made: A Grey Midi Dress

Here it is: the first dress I have ever made entirely by myself. I did make some summer dresses in the past, but I had sown them without a pattern and a sewing machine and at any rate I wouldn't call them very accomplished. I mean, they weren't nearly as polished as this dress and they were not nearly as complex to make. I'm very happy with how this dress turned out. I'm even happier I took this sewing course in the first place because now I can make more dresses like this one! If you remember my November highlights post, you might remember that I've mentioned how I've recently finished a beginning fashion tailoring and sewing course with designer Stanka Zovko. 

I promised to show you the dress I made for my course 'graduation'. At the end of this lovely sewing course, you get to choose not only what you're going to make, but also the material and the pattern.  The sewing pattern is typically chosen from one of the sewing magazines this designer has …

February recap / sažetak veljače

You have seen (more or less) what was February like for me. Now tell me... what was February like for you? Are you happy that it's already March or do you feel like time is flying too fast?Are you looking forward to the spring?

 As far as blogging goes, it seems that I have became more focused on fashion illustrations. In the next month the illustrations will have their place, but there will be more focus on DIY....or at least I think so, because I'm kind of heading in that direction. Apart from that, I have no plans. I have so many ideas when it comes to what I want to blog about, that I often have hard time deciding what not to include. As always, feel free to write about what you would like to see.

Vidjeli ste (više-manje) kako sam provela veljaču...sada mi recite, kakav je vama bio prošli mjesec? Veselite li se proljeću? Jeste li jedva dočekali ožujak ili vam je vrijeme prebrzo proletjelo? Ne zaboravite da nam možda i nije još stiglo i da ime za mjesec ožujak potječe od st…

How To Style Animal Print? + An Autumnal Fairy Tale at Ethno Village Near Medugorje

With winter at our doorstep, I think it's important to make the most out of the left over autumn days. With that in mind, my husband and I payed another visit to our favourite (still not officially opened!) ethno village in vicinity of Medugorje. I wrote about this eco/ethno village a number of times, so if you want to know more (or just see more photographs) feel free to check out my old posts herehereherehere and here.  Autumn is Herzegovina is always gorgeous, and this year hasn't been an exception. We had some sudden weather changes and drastic changes of temperature, but I would still describe this autumn as a beautiful one. The Sunday this photographs were taken on was rather gorgeous, so I'm certainly glad we went on this little trip. I know I'm repeating myself, but I do cherish moments like this. Every time I step into this little village, I feel as if the time has stopped or rather like I have just travelled in time. It's such a charming place! I h…
