May recap / sažetak svibnja

1. 2. 3.

I've dedicated a lot of energy to this blog last month. Inspired by Kezzie's BEDIM, I set up a number of challenges for myself, (I managed to published 35 posts last month! is that too much?) some of those projects I'm working on are still to be revealed...let's just say I kept busy in May. I have illustrated 7 fashion bloggers and I'm really happy about that because 'Inspired by' is one feature of my blog that I work really hard on maintaining. Personally I love doing this feature and if your comments are to judge, you love to see it!

Puno sam energije uložila u ovaj blog prošlog mjeseca. Nadahnula me Kezzie i njen izazov objavljivanja svakog dana, pa sam si postavila dosta izazova, objavila sam čak 35 objava prošlog mjeseca (je li to previše?) a na puno projekata još radim i tek ću ih pokazati....recimo samo da sam bila vrijedna ovoga svibnja. Ilusutrirala sam 7 modnih blogerica i drago mi je zbog toga jer se baš trudim održati tu rubriku na blogu. Mene osobno jako veseli, a znam da i vama nije mrska.

Outfit of the month/ Kombinacija mjeseca
DIY project

There have been soooooo many DIY projects going on last month, I'm not going to include them all in this recap, but if you want to see them, you know where you can find them.  In addition, there has been a fair share of writing going on in May, surprising even myself. For the first time ever on this blog, I posted a short story (as a part of link up with +Natalia Lialina )and I've written a rather long article about painting, that really speaks about creative work in general.

Napravila sam jakooo puno uradi sam projekata, neću ih sve uključivati u ovaj sažetak, ali ako ih želite vidjeti, znate gdje ih možete pronaći. Bilo je dosta i pisanja što je i mene samu iznenadilo. Prvi put ikad objavila sam kratku priču (na engleskom kao dio link upa s +Natalia Lialina ) i napisala sam podosta dug članak o slikanju, koji zapravo govori o bilo kakvoj kreativnoj djelatnosti.


  1. nice mix! :*

  2. How beautiful, I love to look at your drawings. I think my fave photo has to be the one with you holding your drawing :)


  3. Hi Ivana, I shall be very honest to say that I wasn't able to catch up with all your posts as you already know. 35 posts in May? Wow! How do you do that? I'm so thankful that you have this post to summarize all the happenings in your life in May. Your outfits collage are my favourite. You are someone who can carry lots of styles and I like how colourful they look in the sunny season.

    I had to google "candice eyebrow set" but I still can't find the correct results to know what exactly this eyebrow set is. And OMG, I know that sort of things that hubby does!!! Mine is like that too. It's like when I tweeze them, he doesn't notice but when he knows I went to do something to my brows by others like threading, waxing, he would say that I shouldn't have done anything. So now we know, just do it. Don't care the men.

    Yup, the eyebrow mapping is the one that you are referring to about calculating proportions. As I'm typing this, lots of strays are already growing under the brows. I simply hate my pores. Why must they be so active?

    I happen to think that your eyebrows belong to those thicker kind that are nicely shaped. Some people are envious of my thicker brows too as that means more free play to shape. However with the technology of eyebrow embroidery in Singapore, I sometimes wished I have sparse eyebrows so I could simply go for those and not worry so much about my brows sprouting out so constantly.

  4. Love this beautiful and amazing recap of your personality Ivana. And the most I love that pic *outfit of the month* of you, it's like you were embracing the whole universe. Happy weekend, girl.

  5. Beautiful post, really interesting...thx for sharing! You look so adorable!

  6. 35 posts during one month it sounds really imposing:) I should say that I don't know how about others, but my comments are always true and sincere, I love examining closely your sketches and drawings inspired by other bloggers. It's always interesting to me:)
    That pink dress of your mother is considered to be the outfit of the month, indeed. I quite agree with you here:) This dress was cut to show your figure to good advantage, I'm only curious how it looked like on your mother:) I'm sure she was looking beautiful in it too!

    1. I wish I had a photo of her so I can see it worn...her size is not the quite the same anymore, so she can't wear it now...too bad, it would me fun to make a comparison. My mother is actually quite taller tham me, I'm 176cm and she is 182cm but somehow all the clothes from her youth suits me just fine.

    2. Too bad you don't have any photographs, but that time not much people took up photography, so no wonder.
      My mom is quite taller than me too, when I was little girl I was trying her clothes on and now she is wearing some of mine:) We have a bit different sense of style, though.

  7. Prelijep post!

As I mentioned in one of my last post, I'm already thinking about what I might wear for all those festive occasions that are coming up. Autumn and Winter both have its fair share of festivities. Our social calendar can be quite busy this time of year with all the meetings, events, festivities, celebrations, family and work parties. Some of these social occasions come with a black tie dress code, so I decided to prepare some outfit ideas.  A bit of formal wear inspiration for  my readers. All of these photographs were taken the day before yesterday. We're enjoying a rather warm Autumn in Herzegovina but these outfits I'm sharing can be easily be adapted for colder weather. Just throw a warm coat or a blazer over them, and that would be that.  That's what I plan to do once it gets colder. Anyhow, all four dresses I'll be sharing with you today are from Rosegal. This is my second collaboration with this site, if you want you can have a look at my first one here. With…

How To Style A Grey Sweater Dress in Autumn? Outfit Proposal of the Day

I was just thinking how grey doesn't always get the credit it deserves. Sure, there are many enthusiasts of the colour grey, but even among those of us who like grey, there are many lessons to be learned. One of the mistakes we make when styling grey items is to forget that grey does come in so many shades. It's kind of obvious, but it's easy to focus on the classical grey tones and forget to explore this colour in all its complexity. Not to mention that styling the lighter shades of grey can be a great way to refresh our autumn/winter wardrobe. Sometimes it does seem to me that grey is one of the most underestimated colours out there. However, that all might change as grey has been trending a lot lately. For example, you can have a look at some of my runaways picks bellow. 
Neutral outfits composed of lighter shades are a great way to stay away from the typically dark outfit combos. I'm not saying there is anything wrong with dark …

Fashion Illustration Friday: Inspired by Colours of Autum

Time for another Fashion Illustration Friday talk. We'll talk autumn and share some new autumn inspired fashion illustrations & outfits. Autumn is a season with one of the most beautiful colour palettes. Just think about all those gorgeous gold and red leaves! Even the fruits of Autumn are visually stunning, for example the delicious and juicy fruits such as pomegranates and grapes. With so much to appeal to our senses, it's hard not to be appreciative of autumn. It is a stunning season indeed, so small wonder I was inspired to create some fashion art. Scroll down to see and read more. 

Besides enjoying the colours of autumn, I sure love wearing colour in autumn, and that's what I'll write about today. Whether we're talking about accessories or clothes, a bit of colour can take us a long way. Here are some illustrated & photographed colour combos to consider.

Is it too early to start reaching for those festive …
