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! :)

AN AUTUMN OUTFIT AND A BOOK REVIEW (EAST WEST BY SALMAN RUSHDIE)

Hello darlings! It's suddenly gotten a lot colder here, but I still have one warm autumn styling proposal to share with you. I wore this cute neutral outfit while the sun was still shining bright. On that lovely sunny day, I decided to pair my white (authentic) folklore shirt with a striped mini, dark leggings and a dark green vest. I finished this look with my brown boots and a tartan belt. Besides this outfit, I will share another book review on my blog today. East West by Salman Rushdie also happens to falls into category of magic realism. I'm no stranger to Salman Rushdie,  I read Midnight's children a while back and I started but never finished Satanic Verses. This is the first time I read his short stories, though.  I really liked this collection and I can't wait to tell you all about it.

KAFKA ON THE SHORE, A NOVEL BY HARUKI MURAKAMI (BOOK REVIEW & OUTFIT PROPOSAL)

Hello, my darlings! I will be sharing two things with you today: a book review and an outfit post. This cozy outfit proposal features two printed items: a printed scarf and a skirt. The bluish scarf was a gift from a friend and I like how it looks with this camel coat (another gifted item). The wool/silk printed skirt is old, a creation from fashion house Edi. You had a change of seeing this unique floral print on the blog here , here and here. Under the camel coat I have worn this white blouse and this red blazer.  I completed the outfit with a red beanie and high brown boots.  It has gotten colder in Croatia even on the shore. Speaking of the shore, Kafka on the Shore is the novel I will be reviewing today.

10 STYLE LESSONS LEARNED FROM MALENA/ MONICA BELLUCCI

With summer being in full spring, I caught myself thinking about iconic summer outfits. Do you know what came to my mind? Costumes/outfits worn by Monica Belluci when she played Malena Scordia in an iconic Italian movie set on Sicily.  The costumes for that movie were designed by an acclaimed Italian costume designer Maurizio Millenotti and he outdone himself! Seeing that Malena is a historical movie, Maurizio choose quite timeless outfits and cuts that will ever go out of style. That fact makes Malena movie the perfect place to look for inspiration! Moreover, I feel that Monica Belluci's personal style is quite similar to Malena's (i.e. to the style of the character she is playing). There is definitely a Mediterranean lady feel about Malena/Monica Bellucci. What says summer better than Mediterranean and Sicily? Today we'll analyze Malena's style and see what we can learn from her. There is much to learn! Having analyzed looks that Monica wore in iconic Malena film, I…
