Without make up( outfit post)/ Bez šminke (odjevna objava)















I've always adored nautical prints, so when I saw this wonderful dress at Mana,  it was a case of love at first sight. Pairing it with my white Peko sandals seemed like an obvious thing to do. I'm not so sure about the bag (gift from friends).  I do think this outfit would look more dressed up if it was paired with a more classical bag. That being said,  I really do like this tropical print on the bag and I guess I just like to bring in the element of unexpected. What else to say about this styling? Instead of a belt, I tied a colourful scarf around my waist and later on when the sun set (it was setting as these photographs were being taken) I used that scarf to cover my shoulders. Thank you for sweet comments about my drawing and the words I choose to accompany it. Often when I'm drawing or illustrating, the words just appear on their own but really they do tend to show what has been on my mind lately.

Uvijek sam voljela nautične uzorke, pa je ova haljina iz Mane baš bila ljubav na prvi pogled, a i nositi je uz ove bijele sandale iz Peka činilo se očitim izborom. Jedino nisam sigurna što se tiče torbe (dar prijateljica), jer mislim da bi uz neku klasičniju torbicu ova kombinacija izgledala dotjeranijom. S druge strane, jako mi se sviđa ovaj tropski uzorak na torbici, a i volim ubaciti nešto neočekivano. Što još reći o jučerašnjoj stilizaciji? Umjesto remena, zavezala sam šareni rubac oko struka koji sam kasnije (kada je zašlo sunce koje je zalazilo dok smo se slikali) iskoristila da se ogrnem. Hvala vam  svima na komentarima o mom crtežu i popratnim riječima. Često kada crtam ili ilustriram, riječi se same pojave, ali doista ukazuju na ono što mi se mota po glavi u zadnje vrijeme.

  7. Super je haljinica, i ja sam luda za nautičnim uzorcima, u prošlom životu sam sigurno bila ribar ili nešto slično :)) Baš jedan lijepi i opušteni ljetni look! Inače i ja sam danas bila vani bez trunka šminke :)

  9. The dress is really, really great ! The print of it is so special and expressive:) To use a scarf as a belt is a good idea as well, it makes the whole attire looks complete. To crown it over I must say that you look both pretty with makeup or without:)

I rarely wear make up 'cause I'm too lazy and it's time consuming hehe. I'm so comfortable without make up, my skin feels so free. Your dress is so unique, I really like it perfect for summer.

    but make up gives me the feeling of being a woman and i need it. you had such a luck: you dont waste time with lay off some make up. but i can image, that you love it to take a lipstick/gloss, rouge, eye-shadow, or something else.

    anyway: very clolourful dress.

My fashion illustration of the day + book review / Moja modna ilustracija dana + ogled knjige ( Le Diable au corps) 6.12.2016

This morning I read an amazing novel. Le Diable au corps (translated as The Devil In the Flesh) is a novel by Raymond Radiquet. Believe it or not, this was by first book by this French writer. I don't think I even heard of him before, which is odd, but well, it happens. In his time, Raymond was quite a celebrity and he is still considered as one of the important French writers of that period. Did I like this novel? Quite frankly, I loved it. I just couldn't put this novel down. I must have read it an hour or so. I got up a bit more earlier this morning so I actually had time to read it with my morning coffee (it is not a very long novel but still it is amazing how easy it was to find one's self glued to those pages). Perhaps I should make it a habit, getting up more early so I can read more. 
Jutros sam pročitala divan roman. Đavo u tijelu  (naslov izvornika Le Diable au corps) je roman Raymonda Radiqueta. Vjerovali ili ne, ovo je moj prvi roman ovoga pisca. Mislim da nika…

Fashion illustrations of the day (markers)

Hello darlings! How are you? Can you believe that February ends today? This month has just flown by. I know it's the shortest month in the year but still. Today I'm going to share 3 fashion illustrations and sketches with you. The medium for all of them is marker on paper. I don't work with markers that often, but sometimes it is good to try something different. The fashion sketches I'm sharing are all about 3 colours: purple, green and red. Spring is in the air, so this is my reflection on all those trends for the new season. The first illustration shows a girl wearing a purple and blue jumpsuit. The second illustration features a girl wearing a transparent green dress with a top and a skirt under that dress. The third illustration shows two girls in red gowns.

February Recap (art & DIY projects & outfits)

I've put a lot of effort into blogging this February, I hope it shows. As far as the content goes, February was similar to January, mostly a mix of my illustrations and outfit posts (here). This month I was full of positing ideas and I managed to make many of them happen. I feel pretty good about that. The only thing I feel bad about is making my blog monolingual and not using my other languages, but translating texts from English to other languages takes such a long time. It is so much easier to just write in English.  Hopefully, I'll manage to change that and make my blog multilingual again. I need to organize my time better. Fingers crossed. For March I already have a few posts prepared. You can expect more art (mostly fashion illustrations) & outfit posts. 








DIY PROJECTS 
I shared two DIY projects in February, one about making a Barbie dress, the other was about how to paint a plant container. I don't have any DIY projects prepared for March, but I'm sure that I…
